1. Say no to "Janys" when she asked me out on a date. If I couldnt have avoided that, definitely dont go out with her sister and her cousin after that.

That pretty much would have covered it.

Learned my lesson to avoid women using odd 'y' and 'i' spellings in their names. And their relatives.

Wouldn't change a thing, except maybe the second marriage.
Otherwise......... no complaints.

Going back 20 years.....makes me 29, married with a 4-year old daughter. What would I have done differently?

* Enjoyed my beautiful, sweet, shy child rather than trying to mold/control her. That is truly the only thing that keeps me up at night *

I'm sure I made lots of other mistakes over the past 20 years, but as others have said - it has helped shape me to be the person I am today. All in all life is good and I have more than I ever thought possible. I'm very lucky....my daughter loves me anyway.
