Welcome to my first round-up of the stuff I post on my various blogs and the nonsense I have to add. There are many things I identify as – female, working mom, parent of a toddler/preschooler, parent of an adolescent, fledgling farmer, genealogist, and Pagan. I enjoy exploring all of these topics, but not everyone enjoys all of them together.
So I maintain separate little homes for each on the web. If you want to better understand each of these blogs, you can visit my Wendy’s Writing page for more insight. Here’s where you can find those topics and this week’s posts:
GirlProblems.net – this week I tackled the real issues, like “feminine napkins” and leggings as pants. If you have a girl problem you would like to see shared on the blog, just tweet to me at WendyLCallahan with the hashtag #girlproblems, and I’ll include yours in the ever-growing compendium of challenges females face.
And a word about GirlProblems.net: the About page says it all – this blog is for anyone who identifies as female. Whether you are CIS or transgender, you are welcome to read and submit contributions. We who are born or identify as female are all in it together, after all!
In Which Mother – the usual shenanigans include bodily functions, motherhood, and work, and this week was no exception. Please visit my post about debating with myself and let me know if you do it too!
New England Genealogy – today I revisit my "Creepy Cousins" post from 2010. Lizzie Borden took an axe and... also happens to be a distant cousin of mine. Whenever Halloween draws near, her name comes to mind. To this day, we still don't know if she murdered her parents or not. Even though she was acquitted, this case remains a mystery...
Our Prairie Nest – we embraced the warm weather last weekend to work on some winterizing endeavors. Can you believe it’s that time of the year already? My husband also built a lovely toybox/bookshelf combo for our daughter. Two projects in one man store visit. What more could a girl ask for?
Synthesis Circle – I’ve been pulling some previously-published material of mine and giving it fresh life on the Synthesis Circle website. This week I discuss the factors that go into the decision to come out of the broom closet.
Wendy's Stuff & Nonsense for the week - when I get ready for work, I have 20 minutes of quiet time to think and reflect. This week, I asked myself the question, "If someone was in a car accident and they lost their face, and then woke up from reconstructive surgery looking like Steve Buscemi, but with none of his talent, how would they feel?"
Let me know your answer to that, won't you?
