“What do you DO exactly?”

When people ask what I do for a living I usually just stare back at them, blinking stupidly before I answer. Then I explain awkwardly that I used to be a teacher. Though I haven’t taught in years, for some reason I often still lead with that. Maybe I want people to know that I went to school and learned how to BE something legit—as though being a “Content Creator” is a made up career. I can assure you that working from home as a Content Creator is a real gig involving skills I never anticipated would fall within my scope of expertise. In fact, a few areas within my job description didn’t even exist ten years ago. I started my first blog in 2006 shortly after our second child was born and it became apparent she was going to have some medical and developmental challenges. I left my career as an elementary school teacher to stay home to care for her. While she napped, I wrote about our life. Forever in Mom Genes was a place for me to dump my thoughts—worries, bliss, fears, triumphs, stories about our family, the challenges of parenting a child with disabilities, and anything[…]

Our Family Computes

    A family that blogs together, stays together? Maybe. Mom blogs. Dad blogs (sometimes). Son blogs. Daughter types her name and her spelling words. Her blog is surely imminent. 😉   I’ve been on my own this week. Hubby has been away at a teacher conference and I’ve been home with the kids — for their first week of summer vacation. Days spent at the beach, road trips and summer adventures have been put on hold. Yes it’s summer, but as a work-at-home mom, I still need to meet deadlines and get the job done.    Balance. That’s what I strived to find this week…   Family helped out and I am grateful. As well, my son played with his sister every morning so I could check off a few things from my to-do list.    And the newest tactic — one that seems to work for all of us — is “working” side by side. While I work on my computer, the kids work on theirs, all of us together. Not gonna lie, there were constantl interruptions…comments and queries such as, “Mum, how does this look’!” and “Listen to this!” or “How do I save?”and “Holy sh*t. I[…]

Vlog – My Workspace

I’m a looky-loo. I enjoy Open Houses and walks after dark to sneak a peek into illuminated homes around the hood. I also like to eyeball people’s vlogs — I’m always interested in seeing where people work at home. So, I thought I’d take a minute to show you MY home office space. It’s not fancy. In fact, it’s kind of a messy mishmash of adult-meets kiddos-meets a whole lotta filing that will never get done. If you decide to share YOUR workspace, please leave the link in the comment section below so I can come have a peek. We nosey folks love good peep show. My workspace: How is this for the stupidest screen shot ever?
