WTF? Where is my real life….


Where did my real life go?  The one I signed up for when I was a little girl?  The one that I dreamed about for long hours as a teenager?  The one that I thought I was going to have?  Your guess is as good as mine.

Tonight I literally had ball sweat wiped on my arm because my husband had been digging at his crotch, thought it was funny when I said “Ew that stinks, go take a shower” and then thought it would be even funnier to wipe it on me.  This is not the life I signed up for.  I am supposed to be on stage somewhere accepting an award for being totally awesome while my adoring non ball sweaty husband sits watching in admiration.  While my children (multiple) watch their mommy being honored.

My uterus was not supposed to throw out 6 babies before they were even recognizable as life.  I am truly eternally grateful for my one and only son and I love him more than anything in this world but he was not supposed to be an only child.  So what the hell?

I think that I am going to have to go talk to the clerks and find out where they stuck the real life when they gave me this one.  Was it lost in some great cosmic airport somewhere?  Was it sent to some person on the other side of the world and I got their life instead?  I guess I will never know.

    This is a great first post. And I think a lot of these have realizations like this. Sometimes mine are along the lines of “hey where are my flying cars promised by science fiction for ages?” Other times they are small moments of depressing when I look at all of the work I put into my degree and how much money that is actually getting me in the workforce. I worked entry level stuff all through high school and college, and then had to beat back a horrible economy to get to the beginning of my management career. Sometimes it just makes me wonder if it was all worth it. And don’t get me wrong, I love my life, my family, friends, and soon to be wife, but when I was 5 or 12 or 16 this certainly wasn’t what I had pictured. I was supposed to be a god damn astronaut, comic book writer, super hero, lawyer damn it!

      Thank you for your comment! I was supposed to be a world famous singer/actress AND was going to cure cancer and win an olympic gold medal in figure skating all while writing the great American novel. It just doesn’t seem fair.
