Not Unique

A friend invited me to write for her blog. I was flattered. She'd read some of my Facebook posts and thought I might like to contribute. She has a wonderful blog, you should check it out:

But then I realized that most of my content is negative. Written out of frustration. So until the day that I can find something nice to contribute, I'll say nothing at all. Hence the "rant" part of this blog.

Okay, so the whole Modern Housewife thing is pretty played out. But what better way to describe the purpose and content of this blog? Once, when I was around 20-22 or something, a friend asked me, "what do you want to be when you grow up?"

"A housewife," I replied.

"What?!? This is the '90's! You can be anything you want!"

Um. ?

That's what I was thinking. Anything I want. Not anything you think I should be. Lord knows, I can't even execute what I want, much less what you want me to be. I'm doin' the best I can here. Never perfect, rarely good, but often adequate. So far, everyone's still safe & healthy. That's just about all you can ask for, anyway.
