No matter what NOW says, for those of you younger than 30, that's the National Association for Women (for or of?)...anyway....if you grew up in the 70's like I did, Gloria Steinem was our hero. We love her...she loves us.
Women could "have it all", a career, a husband, a baby, a family, the works...but we have found that we cannot...and that's OK. Oh, we can do all of that, and kill ourselves in the process. Men don't try to have it all...they have a wife to help them make it to the top. I want a wife!! The whole point of this post is that that reason I haven't posted in almost a year is because I'm trying to "do it all" and failing miserably. I work full time, produce 5 fancy fleas, have 5 children and 6 grandchildren, a husband, a family, cats, dogs...and the list goes on. I'm exhausted...I've gone from a size 6 to a 10 in 2 years. Every time I add a new show to the mix I gain 5 pounds...do the math. Something had to give. Just a little something that I didn't have to worry about. I was never a great blogger to begin with, but I tried to post now and then.
So I gave myself permission not to...and you know what...it's OK. Why do we put this pressure on ourselves to do everything? No one is keeping score....no one really cares except us! So I'm giving myself more little gifts. The bedroom does not have to be repainted for the 5th time; so there are smudges all over the fridge handle; the cat puked up a hairball on the living room floor...I'll get to it...eventually.
Thanks for letting me vent. Next time we'll cover my secret addiction.
