Golly Fairy Godmother...

when I grow up, all I want is
a handsome husband,
two beautiful children (a boy and a girl),
and a nice house with pretty flowers
and a picket fence.
And maybe a nice car to drive - a Mercedes.
Some expensive jewelry and a fur coat, too.
How about a summer home on the lake?
And I don't want to work. Ever!
I'll need a maid. Yes, a maid.
Forget about cooking and cleaning,
and changing diapers.
I want to go on vacation to Paris,
Florence, and Cannes.
Without those two little brats. Or Him.
Just me and lots of money and men and
yachts and diamonds...

JUNE 2010: We're back home in Albuquerque!

My husband and I moved to Chicago so he can pursue a PhD in English. I still need to finish my bachelor's and then start in on that pesky Master's in Library Science. If we could be done with all of this by the time we're 30 that would be GREAT.

It is not just a person's physical constitution, their intelligence,
their education, or even their social conditioning that enables them to
withstand hardship. Much more significant is their inner development.
And while some may be able to survive through sheer willpower, the ones
who suffer the least are those who have a... high degree of patience and
courage in the face of adversity.
~ Dalai Lama

Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars. ~ Henry Van Dyke

Too much of a good thing can be wonderful. ~ Mae West
