IComLeavWe December — Hi

Hi.  Thanks for dropping by — pull up a chair and make yourself comfy.  This is the first time that I’ve participated, so here’s the cliff notes version:

  • I started writing when I was dealing with infertility — it took almost four years to get pregnant with Mini, and then only 4 months of trying to get his sister, Smaller . They’re 21 months apart.  We want to have one or two more kids if we can, but we’re taking a definite break to a) let me completely heal from the last two pregnancies b) get at least one of them out of diapers and c) to hopefully get at least a full night’s sleep at some point.
  • I’m an engineer by profession, watching my career slowly evolve into management.
  • I got all the way through my coursework and passed my comps for my PhD, but I couldn’t deal with the dissertation with two kids, so I dropped out last summer.
  • I’m a PC and I have a droid.  I’m probably one of the few people who finds the iPad completely non-intuitive.
  • I enjoy red wine, amaretto sours, cross-stitching, classic sci-fi, and strong coffee.  I used to enjoy yoga, but haven’t had time to go to a session in years.
  • I’ve gotten turned on to feminist blogs and now I see the patriarchal/corporatization of our culture everywhere I look.  Once you know it’s there, you can’t not see it.
  • I’m starting to explore simplifying/downsizing my life.

Welcome — I look forward to meeting all of you.

    • I Blame the Patriarchy is a longtime favorite — Blue Milk is a new one. I read a lot of the articles that Blue Milk links to, and updating my reader subscription list is on my to-do list.

  1. Hi Sharah, nice to meet you. Stopping by from ICLW #55. I’d love to hear more about your attempts to simplify your life. I’ll have to do some more scoping around your blog… 🙂

  2. Hi Sharah! Good to meet you and thanks for commenting on my blog. Useful info, that. 🙂
    I’m glad you survived infertility and have two lovely kids. Good luck with the next phase and I do hope you get that much needed sleep. 🙂
