I have become a Country Western fan. This surprises most people. In fact, it almost makes my children mad!! My favorites are Toby Keith, Alan Jackson, Carrie Underwood. I like Big and Rich, Thompson Square and Keith Urban. I know….. rather eclectic tastes!
I am a first-born, and for those of you who know about birth order, we first-borns are rule followers. Most of my life has been dominated by responsibility, duty, and lists. I color inside the lines. I am a good girl.
But the downside is that I think I missed out on a certain amount of fun, love, and laughter over the years. For this reason, I always encouraged my children to be less serious about studying, more flexible about life.
The best marriages are said to be between a first-born (me) and a last-born (that would be Russ). I find that interesting, but now after 35 years of marriage to a man who has never made a list in his life, I can say that he definitely balances me…..in his exasperating way.
If you haven’t heard Carrie Underwood’s Good Girl, I attach the U-tube video. The wild side of Robbie Madget Gallinger would love to put on fun clothes and jam in the Board Room like Carrie does!!!!
