If only they made more gadgets for cleaning...

Very interesting little piece in the NY Times: He's Happier, She's Less So.

One line that really resonated for me was, "A big reason that women reported being happier three decades ago — despite far more discrimination — is probably that they had narrower ambitions, Ms. Stevenson says. Many compared themselves only to other women, rather than to men as well. This doesn’t mean they were better off back then."

Maybe I just have to find a way to narrow my ambitions. Something to think about, anyway.

No narrowing of ambitions...hire a maid and a Nanny.....I have no intention of ever narrowing my ambitions in life....I will just have the dusty house.

I did get an irobot roomba vacuum cleaner....he and I are fast close friends....we argue, we fight, we have issues...but all and all, as long as I keep him clean....he does his job and I'm happy!!!! And the rest of the house gets done, when I have time... =)
