Today I am in mourning for the loss of simplicity and all the moments I took for granted. Like when it took me ten minutes to fill out a 1040EZ while sitting at a bar the night before Tax Day and my only concern was that my refund was less than the bar tab.
Gone are the days when finding a great piece of furniture in the trash was awesome and bed bugs were not an epidemic.
Eating pizza and a Snickers bar for breakfast without questioning the calorie intake.
Leaving laundry at the mat unattended without losing all your panties.
Eating 7-11 nachos without heartburn.
Life insurance, what? Why do I need that? Oh, because now I care.
Saying no to mom without guilt.
Taking a crap without a kid opening the door asking why they can’t have more gummy vitamins.
Passion without sacrifice.
