I’m an insurance agent, married, and mother to 2 girls who turned into women seemingly overnight. I engage in the struggles of daily life in a small town in Illinois.
I have a large, extended family to whom I’ve been writing since I moved away from home 30 years ago. This blog arose out of my letters to them, and at their prompting.
“You shouldn’t be sending all this stuff to us” they said, meaning JUST to them alone.
“We’ve been on the receiving end of your ramblings for YEARS, and it’s not fair.” Not fair to others who didn’t get to share my thoughts, is what they meant.
“We INSIST that you stop emailing us” they said, thereby giving the impression that they didn’t want to hear from me. Those big kidders. Ha ha ha! But it doesn’t take Einstein to see the obvious implication that they wanted me to share my thoughts with the world!
My avatar is a picture of me on a sproingy sheep in the little-kiddy part of the playground. If you hang around here long enough, you’ll notice that this photo, and most other pictures I post, is often embellished with bright yellow hair and zingy, red high heels, courtesy of my trusty Paint program. Those two features are meant to represent me, because:
1) I’m a blond (duh)
2) Although I usually wear Easy Spirit Fun-timer orthopedic shoes with the Dr. Scholl’s inserts, I like to think of myself as the kind of women who lives in fire-engine-red stilettos.
These are the Everyday musings from Everywoman’s perspective. Everywoman would be me.
I’d love to hear what you think.
