I Am The Working Mom Who …

Needs to leave work at 5pm in order to safely pick up kids by 6pm.

Thinks she can squeeze in one more email, call or conversation.

Ends up leaving the office somewhere between 5.15-5.30pm.

Realizes she doesn’t have time to pee as she’s already running late.

Can’t walk straight to her car because she is responding to email.

Spends the entire drive either on the phone or emailing when stopped at lights.

Screeches into the parking lot as the clock turns to 6pm.

Apologizes to staff.

Every. Single. Day.

    Enjoyed this blog (is it a blog? I’m not very electronics worthy.) and the other blogs (?) you’ve posted!! Very entertaining, funny, thought provoking. My IPad is quickly taking over reading books,magazines time, and probably deteriorating my vision, scrambling my mind as I quickly transition between TV, email, and games on my IPad at the same time. Sometimes I come up for air and actually speak, not text, email, or Facebook to real people. It’s rather a pleasant experience. I don’t tweet or blog, lest I never engage in human interaction again. Hey, I thought this was a kid problem. Must go take a walk to reintroduce myself to nature and living.
