Just starting

I have no idea what I'm doing.

I hope I don't break anything.  I hope I don't create something that I can't then undo.  I hope I don't embarrass myself.

Blog Virgin.

So, now I'm blogging.  Mostly about the business, family, life, and how they all fit together.  

Right at this moment, my amazing husband/business partner has taken our two delightful daughters ages 4 and 2 to the "big playground", while I am in our home office managing the family business.  And blogging.

I joined the business 1 year ago this month as the "Business Operations" manager of Bizango.  I work somewhere between 5-10 hours a week on the business, mostly in the evenings after we put the kiddos to bed, and Friday mornings when Mark takes his turn with the girls.  

The most frustrating thing about the schedule is that Mark and I, despite being happily married and living together, rarely work together--except for our business meetings on the couch in the evenings, and whenever we get babysitters to watch the kids during the week, which is infrequent.  Finding time to actually communicate with each other about the business, or even personal matters, is a challenge.  You see, Mark and I have other jobs as well.  (We have to support ourselves somehow!) So, the time that we're not at our other jobs, doing childcare, that's  pre-coffee (Mark), or post-bedtime (mine, since I turn in 2-3 hours before Mark even considers hitting the hay) is tricky.

Still, we manage to have a business that we love doing together.
