Joan Reardon Quotes

"Im getting stale. I always do this time of year. I keep my nose to the grindestone and put in long hours and rustle up good meals and do all the chores and run errands and get along with people -- and have a fine time doing it and enjoy life. Then I realize, bang, that Im tired and I dont want to wait on my family for a while and I wish I could go away somewhere and have people wait on me hand and foot, and dress up and go to restaurants and the theater and act like a woman of the world. I feel as if Id been swallowed up whole by all these powerful DeVotos and Id like to be me for a while with somebody who never heard the name."
