Note from @juliejulie: I’m going to fold my Posterous Blog, where I started writing little snippets of my daily conversations, back into this blog.  I wrote this post back in February, when I was trying to figure out how to balance home and work and what I really want to do when I grow up.

Starting a Movement

“What time is it?” he mumbled in the dark.

“4:45,” I said as I climbed into bed.

“What were you doing?” He rolled over and hugged a pillow.

“Reading ‘The Feminine Mystique,’ trying to find out what’s wrong with me.”

“Oh,” he started drifting off.

“The good news is, I’m not alone.” I wrapped myself around him to get warm.


“In fact, a whole movement started because of women like me,” I adjusted a pillow so my head could rest on his shoulder. I listened to him fall asleep.
