I'm not sure how she intimidates you? Are you afraid of her? or does she just seem so "perfect" you feel like you don't measure up?
I have a sister in law who is a world renowned scientist & a professor at UCLA. I have been pretty much a sahm for the last 20 yrs. Her house is spotless (they have no kids) she speaks something like 8 or 9 languages, travels the world & is an amazing cook....oh, & did I mention that she's a really nice person?.
I probably should feel intimidated. But, I'm very happy with my own life. No our house isn't as fancy as hers, I have teenagers in & out all of the time, so it's rarely spotless...although I try to keep a clean house. I'm a pretty fair cook myself & I have a husband & 3 sons that I adore. I'm kind of a homebody, so I have no desire to travel. I've made the life that I want, she's made the life that was right for her. I admire her greatly, but I'm not intimidated.
