These days I wish I was 6 again....

I find myself really identifying with these lyrics from the John Mayer song 83. I love it and most of his songs.  But when I am having a bad day...(too many bills, pain in the ass spouse, and the wretchedness of adult life:  with great freedom comes great responsibility) I often find myself agreeing with John: "Give me a red cape I wanna be superman.... If heavens all you want it to be send your cares to me care of 1983..."
Anyway, I guess I did not realize how good I hadin 1983: when someone cooks all your meals for you, drives you AND pays for the gas, heats your house, buys you gifts and gives you allowance!!!  When you watch kids someone pays you!!!!!! Wearing jeans and t-shirts to your job is acceptable(read school).  How great!
Now please of course I enjoy my kids, and things like that but come on a girl can dream can't she....

I would also like to say the lyrics:"Welcome to the real world" she said to me condenscendingly, "take your seat, take your life, and plot it out in black and white" ...give me pause and crack me up.  At my job,  I ask kids to do that a lot as part of the guidance curriculum and many days I am still trying to decide what I REALLY want to do when I grow up.
These are my skills:
KNIT! DRINK! HANG WITH FRIENDS! PLAY ON THE INTERNET! READ! TAkE WALKS IN NATURE! TRAVEL!
Anyone with any career ideas can send them to me c/o
