Not All About Hair

Okay - I know the title of this blog is "My Curly Journey" - but I need to vent if you will about something not related to my hair. I am a working mom and wife like many women out there and we all face some real day-to-day struggles. Sometimes I really do forget that I am not "Super Woman" able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Anyway, this weekend my hubby comes home and tells me that it looks like there is trouble brewing at his company in the form of letting some staff go and he doesn't know where the axe is going to fall. So I say to him, "Ok - what's your plan?" One thing to understand here is that I am a HUGE planner - I know, I know - can you say type A personality, but I believe in that old addage 'If you fail to plan, plan to fail'. He just stood there looking at me and says, "I guess I'll just wait it out and see what happens." In these economic times where it can take months and months to find a job - who just waits around to get fired????

I totally blanked out - I couldn't believe he could be so cavalier!! We have a 16 month old son, a mortgage and a car note. One income is definitely not going to cut it. So I proceeded to inform him of what I thought of his wait and see attitude. He just looked at me and said, "You see all that getting wound up is your problem. There is nothing wrong with not rushing head long into a solution without knowing that there really is a problem."

I couldn't believe it - I promptly went for an hour long walk to breath - I know I can't be completely wrong about this. But I did come to one conclusion - I am definitely not Super Woman.
