SAHM Indeed. Pah!

Here is my current to-do list. Perhaps this explains why I feel a bit buried, and have aching molars from constantly clenching my teeth. Notice that there is nothing on there about cooking, cleaning in general, cleaning my desk or office, doing laundry, playing with kids, having a date or god forbid sex with husband, writing for pleasure, answering my enormous email backlog, hanging out with friends, scheduling a massage, etc.

Fellow soldiers, if any of your partners, parents, in-laws, or friends ever asks what you do all day long, I suggest you type up your own similar list, wrap it around a rock, and toss it at their heads. For the record, Seymour is mostly aware of and assuredly grateful for all the work required by my list.
