  2. I don't know how many women I know say this is them. Luckily, my husband does listen to the really important stuff.

    By the way, I just read your blog. Totally agree with your post on what you hope to never do. I don't even want to let my mind go there. And I saw your comment to location. I'm a born and raised Westsider, though we did move away a couple years ago.
