Do you suppose it's a phase? This thinking that nobody really gives a shit? Because that's pretty much how I feel all the time too, and we are of a similar age. I mean, 5 year olds have phases...why not 42 year olds? Sigh. It's really to early for philosophical questions.

I think you are pretty cool too.


don't stop! I enjoy reading your blog. my kids are grown, I miss those younger years (sometimes) and enjoy reading about yours. I wish I lived near you - I'd want to hang out :) and you are NOT lazy -- life changing events have deeply affected you. that is NOT lazy.


I am always glad to see a new post! Knowing you are the shit is great. That being said the shit really does stink sometimes.


Don't stop! Your ability to tell it like it is is inspiring.


If you're truly that amazing at laziness, you wouldn't teach a class ;)
Sure we're all a little narcissistic, but I for one like to know that I'm not alone in the craziness.


I love reading your writing and I feel like if we lived closer, had more time, etc we could be friends. I had a dream the other night that I was on a super bright sunshiney beach, with aqua blue clear ocean water, with my husband and children. Friends I hadn't seen for years kept showing up, also facebook friends, saying "what a lovely family! it is so good to see you!" , I believe this dream was my subconscious trying to put some order to what this FB thing is, I don't know. I have been struggling with not wanting to post anything anymore on FB due to worrying about people not caring, or that they will think I am narcissistic for assuming people would care what I post. Its a natural evolution of the medium, I suppose.


Oh, you totally ARE the shit. :) So don't stop blogging. And I agree with a....maybe we're in a phase because we're 40-ish? Because I, too, do not give a shit.


Also, there must be a blogging phase everyone's going through. Because, I kid you not, every blogger I follow is sort of crapping out right now. Just, poof! Disappearing on me! WTH?!


I'm not a blogger, but I enjoy reading blogs because I get to "meet" and learn about people that I might not encounter in my real life. Sometimes it is really hard to meet people in person and/or find people who help you broaden your horizons...to learn about things you might not learn about otherwise. I think you're funny and deep and wise, and you help me understand another perspective, another life. You are important, and you should recognize that - celebrate it.

I'm in the same phase. Almost 41, and don't know what I want to be when I grow up. I've been a stay-at-home-mom (I effing REFUSE to be called a housewife or worse, homemaker)for 8 years now and feel I have nothing to offer this world, so I keep taking classes at the local JC, hoping to find me somewhere.
And, thanks to your brutal honesty about life's crap, I don't feel so alone :)I care that you're putting it all out there.
