1 Saying could you.... followed by mundane daily household chore. Notice I said daily. You'd think anyone else could pick up on that. Or maybe no one else minds overflowing trash cans that the dogs will inevitably get into and drag across the floor or piles of dishes that bear all kinds of maggoty flying creatures. Maybe my family actually wants the creators of Hoarders to call. Maybe they'd like a little free publicity. Maybe they see an Anthropologie shoot in the shades and shadows of crowded dirty plates and cups, a sweet modern family life photo op? Who am I to judge? I'm just Rosie Robot.

2 I'm the CEO of this company called Curry and Family. I go to work pregnant, sick, stressed or otherwise, and mostly, my job gets done. I have a co-CEO named Mr. Curry. He works hard under all kinds of circumstances. What I'd like to know is why no matter how much we do, how hard we work, how balanced we attempt to be, it's never enough? I'd also like to know who decides it's enough? Is it really me, like you all are going to say, or is that a joke between women, who really know that the deciders are the teachers, the neighbors, the kids, the bosses, and everyone else who wakes up in the morning and goes You know what? Maggie May Ethridge is just not doing enough, and today is the day to let her know.
3 I haven't shaved in a week, including my pits, which never happens. I desperately need a hair cut, some third trimester pregnancy clothes, and this.
4 What about this? It makes me afraid for the future, sad for now, upset- What am I supposed to do about it? How come they never include that in the headlines? I use natural cleaners and products. That's all I can think to do. Is that ENOUGH? Is that....all there is.... take it away, Divine Ms M.........
