bad day – no day off to rest.

You each have such interesting ways to look at the same common phrases that we’ve all heard. It tickles that romantic side – the Happily Ever After of Disney fairy tales – the tougher the struggle, the greater the love – let’s toss the world aside and live off our love. Yet then again, we’ve… either had experiences or heard stories that show the darker side – the “frontier woman isolation”, where the man goes off to find food/work/over to his ‘other families’ and the wife sits. And waits. And waits. And waits. Suicide among frontier women was extremely high for that reason. Nobody to send the kids off to when you’re having a bad day – no day off to rest. “
