Even in the rain…

“Are you okay to go if it rains?” My friend’s text pops up on my phone just before we’re supposed to go walking together. I look outside. Dark clouds hover where it was clear just minutes before. “Sure!” I text back. Even though I don’t hesitate when I answer, I have to admit, if I...

I don’t want more kids, but I’ll never be done

There’s something wrong with me. I’ve suspected it before but now I know, fully. I’m okay with it. I think. I mean there’s not much I can do, really, is there? My husband, right now, as we speak, is getting a vasectomy. I cleared it with him before announcing this on the internet. If...
