Hello Meltingpot Readers,
I don’t know if you all know that I’m on the tenure track here at Temple University, which means there are a lot of hoops I have to jump through in the next two years in order to keep my job. I also, as you know, have three fantastic children, a husband who is trying to finish his PhD and an old house that loves to fall apart at the most inopportune times. I love my life, really I do, but last week I developed this mysterious rash on my back and last night when I should have been working on my new book proposal but was really surfing the web, I stumbled upon a book trailer for a new book called Maxed Out: Working Mothers on the Brink. Check it out:
Dear readers, does this sound familiar to any of you? Do you think Ms. Meltingpot is Maxed Out? I must get my hands on this book. And in the meantime, to try to heal my mysterious rash and to try to eliminate some of my stress, I will only be posting on the Meltingpot once a week. I considered giving it up completely, but I just can’t seem to stay quiet with all of my meltingpot finds and ideas. And I really enjoy the thoughtful comments and opinions you all share with me. So, Maxed Out or not, I’m not leaving the Meltingpot, just dialing back a little bit before I break down on my way to Target to buy diapers. Thanks for understanding.
