Saying hello!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
(I just posted in the main introduction forum but thought I'd say hello here as well!)

I was a regular poster at MDC for several years but have posted very infrequently in the last year.

I felt the need to take a break from the boards when things in my AP-mothering world weren't working the way I had imagined them. I found it challenging to make the changes I needed to make while constantly asking for help here, so I pulled back for a bit, found my own way and am now happy to be back feeling more confident in my parenting and eager to reconnect with old friends and make new ones!

I've recently returned to work part-time, writing, teaching yoga and leading workshops for mothers and couples. (I also teach family yoga classes in the summer!)

Wonderful things are happening in my writing world...

I got to interview Amanda Soule this past fall, which was a real treat for me! I'm about to start Christina Katz's writing class (next week!) and have an essay slated for publication in a Chicken Soup for the Soul book due out in March! :

(All of which is thanks to finding wonderful childcare for my children two days a week so I now have time for my work!! )

Happy to be here and looking forward to getting to know you all...

That sounds about right for a group of writer-mamas!

Thanks. LOVE your username. Made me chuckle as I'm sitting here writing at 4:30 a.m. (woke up with an idea for a project and just had to get down here to write!)

That happened to me this morning, only thankfully it was at 6AM instead of 4AM. And because it was a snow day I let everyone sleep in (ya know, 'til 7AM) and then - horrors - I sat them in front of George so I could keep writing. Before I knew it, it was 9AM... can you say flow? I love flow!

Welcome... and thanks for visiting my blog!

Yes, I did and thanks! I'm thrilled the readership isn't just a few moms in little ol' Montpelier, VT!
