From the ever interesting Jane Galt about child rearing and careers
I’m not sure. If childrearing is a) necessary and b) as tedious as everyone assures me, then it strikes me that whatever feminine thrill women get out of doing it probably increases the happiness associated with the activity. And, based only on my own previous relationship experience, I’d imagine that socialization which reduces the number of areas that have to be negotiated probably, on net, makes marriages happier.
That would go a long way to explaining why opposites attract, if in fact they do.
I’ll be out of town for a few days….
Photos all posted. They’re in the family account on Flickr.
To the great delight of the massed family I have processed the photos from the family reunion and am currently uploading them.
I went to the cemetery for the first time in a couple years today. It was a busy day for that sort of thing (as one would think). Everything is pretty much the same; it’s still a tranquil place. To think, it’s been almost seven years, it’s staggering really.
It’s about conflict between working and stay at home moms. It goes into it in ways I’ve never thought of before.
The lucky silver dollar.
A long post about my grandfather will be up soon.
Here’s the obit.
