So I've never done this before, but I felt inspired after reading several other mama-blogs. I should list them on the side, maybe by the time someone reads this, it will be listed on the side. But there is always the caution that I shouldn't say too much, reveal too much. I find the spotlight, well, too hot.
I am a lawyer, but a new one - I just passed the Mass bar (yeah!). I have a day job as a lawyer, which is slow right now, which is why I'm doing this at work (bad mama, bad). People think I'm really really stupid to be doing this, being a 1st year lawyer, when I have two little little ones at home. But I graduated a few years ago, then immediately took time off to have the kiddies. I've already been at home for more than two years, and antsy is antsy.
I can't help it if I'm an antsy person.
My husband thinks I'm the most miserable free time person he's ever met. He's probably right. Although I relish me time, free time, if I get too much, I get just a little bit loony.
Which is why this post on citymama really got to me: http://citymama.typepad.com/citymama/2007/03/is_anyone_elses.html
I hate the fact that because I'm uncomfortable being still all the time, people assume that must mean that I need to be occupied all the time. Mostly, hubby just will not stop with the: "if she is free, then she is not doing her job" attitude. Hubby is dear, but he's seriously getting on my nerves.
Oh, I'll talk about a book at some point: Moral Hazard by Kate Jennings. It's what's got me pissed. Here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/Moral-Hazard-Novel-Kate-Jennings/dp/0007154623/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/002-2701928-8876835?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1179847571&sr=1-1
Ok. I'm going to dick around on the design some more and that'll be that.
