img_0220img_0188What a week! What even happened…? Beatrice and I had dog training class. I worked on some personal projects and work projects. Opened a care.com account…got excited about hiring someone to help out…and also freaked out about hiring someone to help out.

One of the best parts of the week was touching base with Nicole, the owner of Play, Work, or Dash. I’ve used Play, Work, or Dash with my boys several times, and I’ve also used it to host a writer’s group. I love Nicole – she’s authentic and creative and sweet. We talked about how hard it is to find a cohort of women doing the same thing, this work-from-home thing. So, if you’re a work-from-home mom, how do you do it? Do you get lonely? What do you do when you have ideas, but no one to share them with? Are you interested in collaborating with other work-at-home moms?

And speaking of which, Play, Work, or Dash hosted a session with Jennifer Mackey-Mary of Apple and Pear Wardrobe about rocking your wardrobe. As work-at-home moms and business owners, we are the brand. And we’re on all the time. So how we look matters. This was such a fun class, and I loved chatting with Jennifer and the other women about clothes.

I hope you have a great weekend! We’ve got a gloomy start, but I’m hoping the sun comes out soon!
