Kudos: You guys are the best. Really. I have no idea how I attracted the best commenters on the whole internet, but you are consistently helpful, supportive, fonts of good information, and funny. I feel so lucky to have you all read the questions and offer up your experience and expertise.
Confession: I was going to try to continue on with Ask Moxie without any bumps, but that doesn't seem to be happening. So the reason for the non-posts since last week is that I got a full-time job and haven't quite figured out the WOH mom thing yet. The process of getting the job was bizarrely fast (from sending my resume to going on a business trip[!] was 8 days), but I'm enjoying it and the child care thing seems to be working itself out.
No, I'm not ever going to blog about my job, mostly because I don't want to get fired, but also because they're all really nice, competent people so what would I say? "M told a funny joke and we all laughed, then we went back to work." I will, however, say that we have free organic coffee and lots of windows in the office.
In the meantime, while I'm figuring out how to get myself out of the house in the morning and then come home and do everything I used to do all day, I might not get an Ask Moxie up every day. I'm guessing it'll take me 2-3 more weeks to iron the schedule all out and get back to five posts a week. Please stay tuned.
Now, can anyone give me tips on sequencing in the morning? I seem to be drying my hair in a fluster every morning and bolting out the door without having a chance to eat or pack breakfast. The only element that can't move is that I still nurse El P as soon as he wakes up, about 90 minutes before I have to be out the door. (Oh, and nothing is too obvious. I had this amazing flash of insight last night that I could pick my clothes out the night before and save some time the next morning. Duh.)
