Better way to spend the day

Americana Manhasset

I would soooo much rather spend the day here, in this beautiful setting for a Chanel opening in Paris, than in my kitchen cleaning out cabinets and drawers, and sorting through the thousands of catalogues that seem to multiply by the hour!!!!!!

All day today I kept thinking to myself that there are so many people that must view my profile on facebook and on my blog and because I don't have a business title, and don't 'earn a salary" assume I don't "work".

For those of you who think the women and men of today are more enlightened, think again. For many, including my children, I am ALWAYS supposed to be available to chat, or BBM, or TEXT. To them, I am always on vacation, can always run errands, and don't add anything to the household.
While it is true that I am lucky enough to have household help for the major cleaning, REAL clean, only happens when you do it yourself. NO ONE, can toss your garbage but you. NO ONE can organize your stuff (or should) but you. I'm STILL trying to come to terms with the whirlwind that I called my daughter during Thanksgiving break. Her room was sort of picked up, spun around, and dropped.

Boy would I rather be sitting at the Chanel show.

Two Lesbians Raised A Baby And This Is What They Got

Two Lesbians Raised A Baby And This Is What They Got

Ok, so, sometimes, my SMITH COLLEGE education comes back to haunt me and I have to lecture a little bit. I love this video. I love everything about it.
To all those who are opposed to gay marriage,
To all those who are opposed to gay couples raising children,

Who seems like a more productive member of society, him, or half the kids raised in single parent homes where no one is home all day to supervise
or help with homework or keep everyone safe from drugs?
Does he seem like he was raised with good values?
Does he seem 'whimpy'? Effeminate?
Some food for thought, Hmmm?
