Taking the Plunge
I have thought about it, talked about it, debated it and mulled it over, and now it is time to take the plunge and dive in head first. Well, actually I have never been able to dive. Seriously. Go in head first?
Oh my goodness, in my excitement to take the plunge I have forgotten to introduce myself. I am mom to two darling, crazy, silly, spirited, brilliant boys, ages 3.5 years and 17 months, two very large dogs and three cats. I am also a wife, an attorney and domestic goddess. I wear many hats, as, no doubt, do you. I live in Minneapolis, but I am originally a Texan. I went to law school at the University of Oklahoma, and I am licensed to practice in Oklahoma. I am a full-time stay-at-home mom and I work full-time from home as an independent contractor. All of this juggling is done with the help of my dear husband (who vacuums every night thanks to the very large dogs) and my adored part-time nanny. I am a night owl and don’t get much sleep which doesn’t help my mood in the mornings, but does help me make my deadlines. I love my boys, chocolate, coffee, Jane Eyre, red roses, music, especially 89.3 the Current, sappy, romantic movies with happy endings, tuna sandwiches, and did I mention chocolate? Oh well, it’s worth mentioning twice. I tend to lean to the left, but that should not scare my right-leaning readers (translation – all my friends and family in Texas). I will try my darnedest to present you with the topic straight up, without any leanings at all.
I am so excited about this! Tune in next Monday for my first topic post, “Sippy Cups: BPA Free or Not – What’s the Big Deal?” Don’t forget to become Facebook and Twitter fans. I welcome all comments, suggestions and questions. Thanks to all my loyal readers. Over and Out.
