There are no books, or magazine articles geared to someone in my stage of life. I don't have a job. I don't have BABIES. No, the kids are big. There are no play dates at which to meet moms. There are not clubs or groups at which to meet other moms. I don't homeschool, so there are no homeschool groups, and when I did, I so thoroughly did NOT fit in. Same with PTA. I tried that. I failed miserably.
So, what's up with me? What's wrong with me?
Should I bleach my hair blonde and start going to a tanning bed and get a tatoo so I can fit in with the ladie's "chat and share" time at the local park, sponsored by "Ye local Baptiste Church" for which I got an flyer handed to me while I was out mowing the lawn yesterday?
I think I"m totally invisible. I think I'm the only woman in america who is over 35 and either does not have a job or does not have an unusually large family and/or homeschooling responsibilities.
So, this month, I finish the wedding dress. Next month I start writing for Sunday School. We are going to take our kids through the Old Testament. I hope to have at least the first semester's worth of lessons done before SS starts in September.
Here's something I've figured out: I"m good at doing stuff and being creative, but I'm really really bad at making money.
