not enough sleep
someone had posted something about girls getting married is not an "accomplishment". it is funny. i mean it's still i think seen as that for females more than men. that was extremely true in generations past. i mean landing a good husband was seen as the ultimate female accomplishment. i have always felt like my not getting married was a bit of a failure in many folks minds, i suspect my mom probably felt that was something she had left undone. there wasn't anyone to take care of me. often in our culture it is better to have been married and divorced than never married. i always figured i should be commended for not having married someone that i had no chance of having a successful marriage with or getting impregnated. ultimately if you haven't ever married you will be scrutinized...what is wrong with her? i get less of that now that i am past a certain age...once you are deemed hopeless nobody really cares that you are alone i guess.
