I've Been Known To Do This

Remember how last week we had a snow day that turned into a snow week? Yeah, that was fun, wasn't it? Turns out a week of children being off from school turns a mother's brain into complete puppy chow (and speaking of puppies, my dog survived last week, too. Just in case you were thinking of calling Animal Control on me...justifiably). So, imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning and realized that it is Tuesday, not Monday. The MLK holiday combined with the snow week completely threw me off.

So. Away we go.

One of my absolute favorite (and hugely popular) Mommybloggers is Heather B. Armstrong over at Dooce.com. You can always count on Heather to be incredibly transparent about her life as a wife and working mother. I respect and admire her most for her posts dealing with her struggle with postpartum depression. However, I ADORE her, because she makes me laugh...almost every day. I will warn you, her language is often colorful and her (liberal) politics are not exactly my own, so if you're sensitive to those elements, proceed with caution. But her post today, "I'd totally be a groupie," is one of my new favorites. It's a must-read for you parents out there.

That's right, Mommy Monday on Tuesday. I'm thinking of making it permanent. Any blogs you've found that you are loving right now? Feel free to share in the comments. I'm always looking for new reading material, you know, since I have SO MUCH time on my hands. ;)


  1. Will head over and say hello! :O)

  2. Beth, when The Quiet takes their tour down South, we are SO going together. Rock on! Or should I say, Shhh? Oh, and BTW, I hate when people say to me, "So are you working now?" AHHHHHHH!

  3. Dooce.com is AWESOME. I love heather's work. Let's see... I have so many favorites. I love "It's Sew You" by Dorian and I LOVE Jody Hedlund's blog (on writing).

  4. Snow week? Bleh! They're predicting more snow for us this week. I'm so done with winter. As far as blogs, I've really enjoyed Jennie B. Jones's blog lately. She makes me laugh. I actually featured her on my blog today as I'm searching for people's favorite fiction writer blogs.
