The Best Intentions

December 6, 2011

I mean to pop in here and share photos from our birthday weekend on Martha’s Vineyard (Bliss!! Seriously!!).

I also mean to pop in and talk about the play.
Update you on the job search.
wax on and on about my mental health in the wake of the lay off.
But instead, I keep doing other stuff.

Like the play and the job search.

But not really work.

The break is nice.

I will update soon. I’m sure. Really. I swear.


An Unveiling, of Sorts

December 3, 2011

As I may have mentioned, I’ve blogged in the past. I had a “law school” blog, and then an attempt at breaking from that to a more “lawyer blog.” I found it tough to keep up a blog as a lawyer, because so much is inappropriate to blog about. And then there is the stuff that isn’t necessarily professionally inappropriate, but would nonetheless be embarrassing if I were ever discovered/disclosed. I don’t really relish people I work with stumbling across a catalog of hours I’ve worked (whether low or high), or knowing which days I chose to leave early for a play or a parent-teacher conference. Too many people “keep score”, and I choose not to play that game.

So I chose to spin off, and blog primarily about my home life. My marriage, myself, my motherhood. And I’ve been comfortable here.

Except – I miss my old moniker for my husband.  

I had such a good one. It was his name, in Hebrew, and it described him in my life. It even worked when I wanted to vent about some stupid thing he did, because it read as sarcastic.

I can’t go back to it, but I also can’t get comfortable with this “Writer-Dude”/”WD” crap.

And, so, readers.  Meet david, my husband:
