Where was my Dr. Huxtable? Instead of resting on the weekends after working at least 80 hours, I was at the grocery store and preparing meals that could be frozen and reheated later in the week. Was this my dream or a nightmare?

When you're in school, the goals were outlined clearly. You studied hard, got the A, and that was that. On the job, success is not nearly so clear and it's easy for things to drag on with no clear end in sight.

Sheila Blanchette

I married for love and I married for fun. There was no consideration of where did this guy go to school? What did he major in? Art or engineering? What are his ambitions? I considered these factors: He's fun to travel with, he likes live music, he's a great cook, we can talk for hours and he has a great sense of humor. Twenty two years later we're still married.

Over the past few weeks, Lean In has caused a gargantuan media splash, and even a 'catfight' among some prominent women. And in the midst of the brouhaha, I see a confusing blend of 'leaning in' advice with (I'm grimacing) 'having it all' proclamations. Stop the noise.
