Someone has to wear the pants…

Adriennes blog 2 wedding dress pic Hi, I’m Adrienne.  I’ve been a single mom for a while now, but sometimes the reality hasn’t quite sunk in. Last night I had this dream that I’m going to marry a woman.  I feel disappointed when she tells me I have to wear a pantsuit for the wedding…  I wanted to wear the dress.

“Couldn’t we both wear a dress?”  I asked.

“No, someone has to wear the pants,” she said.

I’m often the one wearing the pants.  Who else is going to deal with the spiders and the clogged drains and the lawnmower now that there’s no man in the house?

It’s not all bad.  I realized I can handle a lot more than I ever thought I could.

What do you do now that you didn’t have to before?  I’ll tell you all my favorite chores on my “Things for Which it Would be Helpful to Have a Husband” list in Giving Myself Away, my story coming out this fall.
