I’ve come into the 21st century…so I could listen to 20th century music on our SmartTv.

The 70’s were a little before my time but with older sisters in the house and shared bedrooms…plus somehow Madonna’s music of the 80’s doesn’t quite evoke the same nostalgia, hope and hopelessness.

I was cleaning the house when I heard the line, “even though we ain’t got money…” and I thought,

“What did I expect for my life? My marriage? My children’s lives?”

You know what?

I don’t know.

I’m not one of those women who had a preconceived view of how grand (perfect?) her life and marriage would be.

But I do know I never thought it would be like this…
