When you are a woman in your 30′s who is unmarried with no kids-sometimes people treat you like a Leper.
Before I met Mr. New when I was (gasp) single, unmarried and with no kids –it was even worse!
“So you aren’t dating anyone? Any one at all?”
“So you are in this new city by yourself?” This was usually followed by a concerned look and sometimes by a look of admiration which I always appreciated.
Yes I took the unconventional path and I wouldn’t trade it.
I find in Iowa the subject comes up more than ever before. Everyone seems to be wedded and babied (does that even make sense?)
I was actually once told that I needed to observe women with children so I can get an idea what they deal with.
What I really want to say is the following:
I have lived an amazing journey so far and when marriage and kids come into the picture-it will be another wonderful facet to my life! I love having my freedom and love that I moved to so many cities pursuing my DREAM!
Everyone follows a different path. Mine never really wanted diapers and burp rags for a long time!
In fact–I sometimes really, really wonder how all you wonderful moms and dads actually DO IT! I hear Jason’s schedule with soccer and shuffling kids to school and it exhausts me even thinking about it. (though I am sure for any parents it’s fulfilling in it’s own way)
I can fully face that I can barely take care of myself! It’s enough to get me fed and to all my appointments! Plus I really like being lazy in front of the couch with lots of treats..:)
What I do know is how excited I am for the future! I finally have the man I always wanted and that gives me lots to hope and dream about!!!!!
