7 Quick Takes - Vol. 9 – One Catholic, One Lawyer, and Mostly Mama!

Well, it’s sure been awhile since I’ve found the time to put together some quick takes.  Here goes.  Hopefully, I’m not too rusty!

CATHOLIC take:  Okay, I’m going to cheat a tiny bit to open this take.  I blogged earlier this week on
NFP and the struggles I’m having with determining whether it is an appropriate time in my life to be spacing (as opposed to conceiving), which completely coincidentally (or due to God?) was written and posted on the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord where we celebrate Mary’s tremendous faith and openness to and acceptance of life and God’s will through her “yes”.  In any event, this subject is an ongoing tug-of-war in my head, so I’d love some feedback.

NFP, Serious Reasons, and Spacing: More Questions than Answers

I struggle.  I know it is not a profound statement, but I struggle.  A lot.  It’s tough being mom to three under 5, a wife of barely 5 years, and keeping up appearances at work (assuming I can even just keep up with work), all while trying to keep an open mind to what is next for me career-wise.  There isn’t a day goes by that I don’t feel completely and utterly overwhelmed by it all.

The Wheels on the Bus, Ping Pong, and Other Life Metaphors: An Update

Okay, so it’s been awhile.  Almost a month.  Yikes.

Funny story: Before I started this blog, I wondered why I couldn’t find any blogs to follow written by Catholic moms engaged in the full-time practice of law. 

Ha!  There just aren’t enough hours in the day . . . .  The shame of it is that I have a list of blog post ideas and half-written blog posts that total, no joke, 9 ½ pages, single spaced!   One of these days . . .  I need to commit to something like Jen’s “7 Posts, 7 Days”, but for like a year.

Good news: I’m not going to stop trying, even if it feels like I’m waging a losing battle.

So, an update?  Yes, that’s probably in order.
