So far, not so good

Well, my plan was to try to update this blog every day. I guess you can see how well I'm doing with that! I've been thinking though that at least this might serve as some sort of record for my daughters of how (un)exciting my life is. In my post college years I've been a big fan of writing, although I never seem to have much time for it. I did quite a big of fiction writing while I was pregnant with my oldest, but for some reason after she was born my free time seemed to disappear! I've gotten to the point now where I've convinced myself that her little unborn self was my muse, and I would never be able to create the same level of quality writing as I did right before she was born. Maybe one of these days I will convince myself to dip my toe in again, but that will have to wait for another day.

Right now my little ones need to get ready for bed, and this "diary" of sorts will have to be my outlet.

Welcome to the show...

I've been thinking a lot recently about starting my own website, but since I have no technological skills to speak of (you'll later see the irony in that), I thought I would start small. If I can manage to keep this blog updated while juggling my husband, my kids (I have 2 under the age of 3), the job (I'm a teacher), the house, and life in general, I'll be good to go. Hence the name, "many hats". I am nowhere near self-absorbed enough to overlook the fact that millions of other moms out there wear the same hats -and more! - that I do. I'm hoping this blog will be a way for me to connect with some of them and maybe help keep my sanity in check in the process. If nothing else, maybe I can bring a laugh or a feeling of sisterhood or something to someone else. I guess we'll find out!
