Funny how the world sees "real women. . ."

Evidenced by all the Real Housewives of. . . shows which seem to be overtaking our televisions, it appears that the world believes we should all be wealthy, pampered, enviable, catty, curvaceous, gorgeous, and more. While we may be gorgeous, most of us are not rich or spoiled or even catty. We are ~ simply put ~ real.

The idea for this blog came after watching a few of those real housewives shows and realizing just how skewed the views of everyday life can be through the eyes of these women. Particularly to those of us in the trenches, working day-in-day-out to take care of ourselves, our children, our parents, our spouses/partners. Those of us who are out there earning a living, who may be dealing with catastrophic events or troubled children or medical issues or partner concerns.

This is a call to all women everywhere who live everyday lives and who want to simply do their best as they love all, laugh often, and live fully. Let us unite with our whole heart and soul, with humanity and grace, with vigor and hope. We are women and we are thankful to be so!

The Lost Week

To anyone loyal enough to RealWomenAreAlaskan to notice the missed Monday Hero -- my deepest apologies! Who knows where these weeks go sometimes? I have a bundle of reasons (read: "excuse"), but let's just settle for these:

1) I had to shave my cat
2) The crocodiles were entering into their annual feeding frenzy
3) Pluto is no longer a planet -- I had to attend the metamorphosis ceremony
4) We entered Daylight Savings Time
5) After reverting to childhood, it was way too difficult to remember what "adult responsibility" means

That being said, let me leave you with a "Maxine" favorite:

Stay tuned for next week's Monday Hero!
