My New Choices
4/15/2012 - Suzanne Caplan
Since we all need to defend a woman's right to have choices; I am going to exercise mine immediately. As of now, I am 10 years younger; 30 pounds lighter; married to a man with great kindness and wealth (notice, I put kindness first) who lives in another country and visits monthly and we have grandchildren from someone elses children so we have no immediate worries.
If I had know earlier that all I had to do was make these choices, I would have done so. Instead, foolish female that I am, I have dealt with life as it came at me and did the best I could with the hand I got.
I am not angry with the lovely Mrs Anne Romny for choosing to have a career as the wife of a rich man with five seemingly neat sons. I am just pissed that she did not tell me that I could have followed the same path.

Love the grit! Too late for me too - but maybe that is only the American dream!

Okay then, my choice is to be fifty years younger, totally ditch the idea of marriage and children and have my heart and sanity in tact? Naw...life has been too rich to ignore my own path.

I like the visiting husband. Sounds about right to me. Love the idea we can choose whatever we want. I'd like to be fearless and much, much braver. Is that possible on your choice program?

My choice would have been to adopt 3 more special needs children, live in the mountains and garden naked. I would not change one iota about my husband, well, except he would learn to really cook.

You ladies crack me up. Choices, eh? When I got out of high school, my only choices were to go to college to be a teacher, secretary, or nurse or to get married. I chose teacher. There's something to say about the world today where women have so many choices for their future. Now if only we knew then, what we know now, eh?

Choices? Would I have made different choices? Yes I think I would have but one choice that I would not have changed is my husband. Best choice I ever made even though through the years I may have had some doubts. But 40 years later I know he was the right choice.

Why didn't you tell me all this earlier, Suzanne? This sounds like the perfect plan.
