I have a habit of making quick judgments about people. I put too much
stock in first impressions. I tend to make assumptions based on what
might be insignificant snapshots of a person's life from brief
encounters with them. These are flaws and I'm working on them.
Admitting it is the first step.

Because these faults are part of who I am, I assume that everyone else
suffers from the same afflictions and, consequently, spend too much time
wondering what people must think about me. Am I arrogant or
humble? Do I look as, umm, "solid" in person as I do in the mirror? Am
I funny or do I just laugh (way too much) at my own jokes? And
what is with that obnoxious laugh anyway? Geez.

To offset the faults, I do have one or two good qualities. One of these
self-proclaimed good qualities is that I genuinely care about other
people's opinions. I want to know about and hear from people who share
or absolutely do not share my beliefs, feelings, opinions, etc.

And, of course, I assume the opposite - that you want to hear my
opinion.

Hence, this blog.

Jennie, what a great blog. I truly believe that a lot of "scientific" statistics are absolute baloney. If you target a certain set of people who are like minded people, you can support any argument. Obviously those who are choosing not to have a family can not speak from any perspective other than their own self centered point of view.
I am sure there are parents out there who don't love parenting. On any given day, any parent could have moments when they feel that way. I have a large family, many of them are well on their way to adulthood or have arrived there. I can't tell you how many times we have great laughs reminiscing about things that were not at all enjoyable at the time.

Because of the stage of life I am at, I am experiencing friends admitting that they actually envy me now. They were the same people who climbed the career ladder, went on extravagant vacations, & had lots of neat stuff.
Now that it is too late, they realize that those fancy cars are rusting somewhere in a junk yard, the neat stuff isn't so neat anymore, and you can't buy happiness.

I can't help but feel sorry for those poor souls who find that they enjoy some tv show more than developing meaningful, loving ties with family.
