Desperately Seeking Susan
Remember that awful movie about a housewife from New Jersey, who leaves her husband in hot pursuit of some guy who left a cryptic personal message in a newspaper? That woman, ends up meeting up with a character played (poorly I might add) by Madonna and it's all about their madcap adventures to find some hideous jewelry. Anyway, this post is not about that movie per say, but more about how I try to find myself in the life that I now live. I guess I began thinking about it after watching a show hosted by you-know-who, wherein women are on a quest to get back in touch with who they once were, instead of who they are now....moms! Being a mom is, by far, the hardest job in the world and there's nothing that precedes it to prepare you for your mission. In doing so, one is immersed shoulder high in everything from diapers, to athletic equipment to designer jeans and letters from colleges trying to steal your child away from you. Somewhere along the way, I lost a good part of who I was, and I yearn to get back to myself. I have fantasies about running away and entering a witness protection program. I've even considered contacting Windermere Real Estate to buy a separate residence in another state and not tell anyone about it......not even my husband. They are only fanstasies though and I'll never actually go through with it, but it's nice to dream. In the meantime, you can find me home, trying to change the world....one child at a time!
