One post

I told JenontheEdge I would start blogging again this week. Here I am. It has been almost four years since I regularly blogged. I had high hopes of blogging once I started on policy making boards, but the time just slipped away and I have virtually no blogging to show for it.  I do, however, have another child, a successful campaign for office and plenty of experience to share from the past years.

I have now been on the School Board for a year. It is a true privilege, one I do not take lightly. I have learned a tremendous amount and I expect to learn much more in the coming years. To the extent that the public is or should be interested in a topic, I may blog about my school board experience.

Additionally, I will blog about my transition from a working mother to stay at home mom. Clearly, a SAHM is a working mother, so I hate to use the phraseology, alas it is a short-hand that resonates.  Chris and I did some calculations and cut our budget dramatically, so that I could stay home with Ryan, our two year old and be home when our older boys get home from school.  It has been 3 weeks since I left my last position, but this is the first week Ryan and I are by ourselves and not super busy with holidays and illness.

I will blog about city politics. I will post about local/state/federal political things to the extent I have an opinion that is comprehensible. I am still a lawyer, even if I am not practicing, so I will blog about the law occasionally (including this news coming from the VA S. Ct today which combines my favorite things: the law and local government).

Tonight is 2013's first school board meeting.  The presumptive incoming chair is trying to adjourn the meeting by 7:30, ostensibly three hours earlier than our last three meetings. I am not sure putting time limits on these meetings is a good idea, particularly when we only have one meeting a month, but I look forward to trying it.
