TMC welcomes Kim from The Fordeville Diaries. Kim still considers herself a new blogger since she’s been blogging for less than a year, but after reading one of her posts, you would think she’s been doing this for years. Her content is always spot on and her personality and humor are always infused perfectly in every post. And she is recently sporting a fabulous new blog design! She is also a fellow Jersey girl, so of course that makes her rock even more in my book! Here is how she describes her blog in her own words:
“I’m so excited to be today’s Featured Blogger on Theta Mom! Since you’re here, I don’t have to tell all of you what a great community this is. But I will tell you that as a relatively new blogger, I’m really grateful for everything I’ve learned right here on this site. It has been a tremendous resource.
As for my blog, I’m only seven months into this brave new world and really loving every moment. The site focuses a lot on my family, but not exclusively. You can also read about my sometimes bumpy transition to the suburbs after 16 years in Manhattan as well as our related attempts to renovate our 100 year-old house. And some other very important matters:
The ongoing battle to purge the basement of my husband’s clutter when he’s not looking. Sometimes he catches me, my unpopular aversion to arts and crafts. Please don’t back me into a corner with a glue gun – it’s not pretty.
Managing my son’s relentless fixation with Thomas the Train. I’m considering a train exorcism, or perhaps driving Percy, James and a few other residents of Sodor off of a cliff.
My obsessions with music and movies, including 23 years of trying to meet Bono in ways that don’t technically meet the criminal definition of stalking…and let’s not forget the snoring pug named Señor.
So you’ll find a lot of day-to-day musings because honestly, isn’t real life often stranger than fiction? For me, it’s all about taking the ordinary things of the day and turning them into the memorable. That’s what strings together a family, a history, a lifetime.
And the biggest thing to point out is the crazy timing of this Featured Blogger post to coincide with a huge change in my life — my official last day of work. Today! Yes, today I hang up my corporate pen after many years, and I start reporting full time to two children under the age of four.
So come on over to my blog and watch the chaos of my transition to SAHM unfold before your eyes. This is the next chapter of my life. It will be humbling. And fraught with domestic disasters. And so much fun.
That covers the basics. I hope you’ll find time to stop by – looking forward to meeting more Theta Moms!”
