My nickname in the blogosphere is Scylla. I chose this name for many reasons, none of them having to do with eating ancient greek sailors alive. Let’s just say I felt six heads were better than one.
I am 32 years old. I only had one 29th birthday. I love my thirties. They are a damn sexy decade to be. I am thrilled and excited to be past the awkward and uncertain blush of youth. (Though not so thrilled with gravity’s effect on the body after that initial blush of youth but who needs all that perk anyway?)
I began this blog as a way to stay connected with my family. I moved out to New Jersey from Colorado when my husband was offered a great career opportunity. I was a recent law school graduate, had just finished taking the bar, and was expecting our second child. I have been here, writing, posting, and redefining myself ever since. Somewhere along the way I really started to enjoy writing again, and began to enter the blogger community in earnest.
Sadly, I must confess, I am the penultimate lurker. I comment from time to time, but mostly, I read and say nothing. I am sorry, but often I have nothing to say.
Current definitions I feel fit me:
I am a stay at home/work from home mother of two. I am a dog owner and a cat slave. I am a wife, a roommate, a lawyer, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a kleenex, a napkin, a pooper scooper, a housemaid, a laundress, and a wipey (ah those endlessly useful pre-moistened cloths). I am an entrepreneur and an environmentalist. I may be insane, if not, I am certainly on my way there. I am a burgeoning gourmet cook (not chef, I don’t aspire that high) and foodie. I am a blogger.
What I blog about now:
Whatever I feel like blogging about at the time. I usually can be counted on to relate stories of motherhood more than anything else. I try to make them as honest as possible, though I often omit details that would truly make my kids and husband kill me if they read them. I won’t sugarcoat parenting though, sometimes it sucks (and not well). It is the most challenging, the most thankless, and the most rewarding job I have ever had.
I enjoy participating in a few weekly blogosphere meme’s such as Haiku Friday, and Weekly Winners, but otherwise, I write about whatever strikes my fancy when I sit at the keyboard.
I like to post about the environment, things you can do to make a difference in our world, and politics, though these issues are more like the spice that gets tossed into the soup, rather than the soup itself.
Thanks for coming by my blog! I hope you enjoy your stay.
