“Dude, these past few days are reminding me that I’m sooooo glad I don’t have a family of my own to take care of at THIS time in my life. Eventually? Yes. Right now? Heck no! I’m not ready to wake up and see another face next to me. Want the whole dang bed to myself. Cook? Clean? EVERYDAY?! Little people? Who came out of me?! Pinned to a house with them?! AND the cooking and cleaning?! &^%$*…I was born for so much more. When I’m 30, we can talk lol”
