I might just as well be called whatserbucket the slacker rookie. Why?
Oh, I dunno… the Wiz first sent me an invite to blog here months and months ago when I had time on my hands. In between trips to the toilet and the emergency room, holed up in bed with my powerbook and a tall glass of lemonade just musing about this and that. Those invitations sat one after the other in my inbox digitally rotting until they were no longer valid.
I don’t know why I didn’t just hop right in. I normally have plenty to say about plenty of things. It’s not like the company around here is sketchy. The Wiz and her cohorts seem like decent well-bred people.
Maybe it’s because of the slacker part of me. I guess I figured I’d have to read through all the archives and familiarize myself with the neighborhood (sorry, didn’t happen) and the style and vibe so I didn’t offend or repeat (sorry, likely will happen). The slacker in me also doesn’t feel like fretting over tenses, editing or punctuation (like I have time for that right now) I don’t like feeling that I have to be a scholar on something before I spout off. So consider yourself warned. I’ll try to not talk purely out of my backside if possible.
I am also quite possibly one of the most rookiest of rookies in mommy land. I never babysat in my youth (my first babysitting gig was when I was 26 years old). I never really aspired to motherhood, never had younger siblings or cousins to run after. (My husband is an excellent mother, by the way. Perhaps we’ll talk gender roles one day.) I am the definition of clueless. Picture a deer in the headlights. Keep in mind this deer has engorged breasts and postpartum issues and is in a new city where she knows no one (cue Doppler effect of a car zooming by).
Anywhoooo…..that’s my into in a nutshell. Mormon Mommy? Yes. In a war of sorts? Yes. I think I’ll put my blanket over there, if that’s alright. Schooch over Goochie there’s a new kid on the block. Now if I can just figure out how to post this…
