Have you seen this ad for Southern Living? It says, "Today's Southern woman doesn't mind burning the candle at both ends. Especially if she's using her grandmother's candlesticks."
Really? With all that women do today, with the overwhelming majority of us feeling like we can never do it all, with most us finally learning the art of saying "No" as we get older... Really? I'm surprised that Southern Living is promoting a "do more" (read "you're not doing enough") mentality. I'm quite disappointed in them...
I composed the above paragraph in an email to Southern Living actually, but then I began to wonder, "Am I overreacting?" Do others feel this way or is it just me? What do you think? If a few of you comment that I'm not being overly sensitive and the message is downright weird, I'll send my complaint email.
Thanks for the feedback!
