- I am 36. Most other people I know my age are: married, homeowners, and with children, one or more. I am single, renting, and thankfully, (see first two points) childless.
- I go to a church where most people are 26, married, homeowners and/or parents.
- I work in a building where most women are 40+, homeowners, and grandmothers. Oh, and they all live 5 minutes from the building.
- Oh, lots of other stuff.
But good news, I have been funded to go to Minneapolis for the Public Library Association Conference. And probably Marian the Librarian and I will be roomies!!
So I think I can put aside fantasies of taking people's temperatures. I told Marian about my aspirations to becoming a nurse and she said, "two words: sponge bath." I told her if I was supporting an artistic husband, it might become an option again, but for now, I think I can live on what I make and ENJOY what I do. (Not that I don't think I'd enjoy being a nurse, I just think I'd enjoy staying a librarian for now.)
Okay, gotta go. Off to coffee with a friend.
