    missed any of his school events.

    Actually I had a similar situation. I was in outside sales, so always made those school events. I was just out on a "sales call". :D

    My hours were flexible, but the pressure to produce good sales numbers was a constant. It just meant that I had to work smarter to be able to have time for the kids and keep my job. I guess I did OK with a 23 year tenure with one company, 4 with another and 2 with the worst to work for, Xerox.

    Sounds about right, along with museum/historic site docent. I have no idea what "Sunshine Sisters" are, and they bounce you out of Junior League when you're 32. And they bounce you HARD.

    Why would anybody get bored doing things they love? That doesn't make any sense.

    But even women who aren't interested in the social and volunteer demands of an upper middle class lifestyle can still derive a lot of enjoyment from running a home, socializing, working on hobbies or volunteer activities, and other non-paid things.

    A lack of children shouldn't define a woman's existence anymore than the lack of a husband should.

    And knitting. Don't forget knitting. I'm currently planning a trip to Reykjavik to see friends, and I'm going to hit every yarn store in town.
