Why this blog?

As a working mother of three boys…one his, one mine, one ours…one a product of divorce, one a product of a death and one the product of our marriage…one who can legally drink, one who wants to and a third who has just learned to read…one who barely graduated high school, one who is highly gifted (with no common sense) and one who is savvy beyond his years…I frequently find myself talking about motherhood with other women. For some strange reason, some of them think I have the answers…trust me, I don’t! Just ask my spouse!

I do know one thing, I work my ass off, at work, at home, at school, at wherever else I may find myself…I work hard to be in shape (but I still could lose 10); I work hard to remember birthdays (I’m sorry if I forgot yours);  I work hard to protect the reputation of my company (I’m sorry if you think we suck);  I work hard to be a good boss (Thanks for helping with another special project); I work hard to be a good friend (did you get the note celebrating National Friendship Day?);  I work hard to be a good wife (I’m sorry I was sick on vacation); I work hard to help at school (are you still collecting printer cartridges for your kid’s school); I work hard to be a good daughter (opera anyone?); I work hard to keep up our garden (tomatoes anyone); I work hard to be a good mom (did you brush your teeth sometime today?); dammit, I work HARD!!!

And one thing is for sure...this mom shit is hard!
