Yes, amazing how as soon as I finally got my degree my father expected my
husband and I to "get down to business" and get on with having a family.
After all, I'm now the ripe old age of 34, see 1, 2, and 3 above...  This
even though my husband is a flight attendant and of the two of us I have
the higher earning potential; I've had my education and now it's time to be
a stay-at-home mom!

Right behind you on the soapbox, Linnea...
