Only a strong woman...

You know, I'm on my "women are the superior sex" soapbox this evening because today I bravely took a carload of kids (four of them, three didn't even belong to me) and three parakeets on a forty-five minute (each way) journey to a vet's office in North Raleigh.  I spent at least forty-five minutes in the vet's office for an exam that took less than five.  I drove back home in heavy afternoon traffic with an ailing parakeet on my shoulder while the two other parakeets argued consistently the whole way home.

I offer all this information because in hindsight I see where no man would have undertaken a journey like that.  They would have merely barked "impossible" and been done with it.  This just goes to show that while I wasn't exactly overjoyed by the prospect, I undertook it with all the grace and patience I could muster. 

Women rock.



  1. Who is sick and try going from 1 country to another by yourself with a 6 year old and a 6 week old.

    Yes Women rock

  2. I agree tha women rock, but it;s a shame that we wait until they drive us nuts and then tell them that they are driving us nuts.Tthat's why we explode and finally tell them we would like to throw them to the curb.

  3. Hallelujah...we should all take a lesson from that. I suppose I should be asserting my disapproval more often instead of being a peacemaker. DANG THESE PEACEMAKING GENES!!!
