mommy blogger?

there's been a lot of talk about mommy bloggers on the net these past few days. people are compiling lists of best mom blogs and looking for new break out stars for 2010. i don't think i fit into the category of a mommy blogger. yes, i do have kids and one is still young enough to call me momma, but i don't think my infrequent entries solely revolve around being a mom. they revolve around being a person.

i'm a highly efficient executive assistant who keeps several SVPs dancing in perfect corporate step. does the fact that i pick up dirty spiderman underwear off the bathroom floor trump the fact that in the afternoon i orchestrate multi-tiered video conferences over several time zones? no, but if the truth be told, i would much rather be a stay at home mom and focus all my energies on my kids. home and family have so much more value to me. hard work is just a way to support my family.

so call me a mommy blogger if you want. i guess it's more of a compliment than i thought.

Delighting in decorating

certain things in life present a challenge, and the task of decorating a large blank wall makes me freeze in my tracks. my mind is as blank as the wall.

knowing this, understand that i've been in my home for about 5 years and am just now starting to get around to decorating it. please share in my excitement as I show you my new end table and rug from Pottery Barn. the rug is called Vivenne and the end table is from the Rhys Collection.

last night I moved the furniture, unrolled the carpet and reset the couch and table. no wonder I lost two pounds on the scale this morning!

wysiwygying it

i'm not much of a writer. i'd like to be, but let's face it, i lead a life of a harried divorced mom who's lucky to have clean underwear on hand rather than someone who runs the perfect home with flawless execution. so, instead of taking time to craft the perfectly written blog, i wing it. i create in brief flashes of impetus, slap it on the net with imperfect punctuation & grammar, hoping it's a bit funny and will ring true to those who happen to wander in to read.

my blog is like my house: a bit messy, but it's honest, from the heart; full of life, laughter and honesty. what you see is what you get....hey, i'm a wysiwyg blogger!

so, the point of this post is i may be back to blogging regularly, this time, with mobile uploads from snippets of my day. short and sweet. maybe a bit silly and possibly even socially relevant.

let's see what happens, hmm?
