1, 2, 3, JUMP!

Dear Diane Rehm,
Just a quick note to let you know that I am actually doing it!  I am starting a blog that I can use to work on my memoir---the memoir that will be the subject of our discussion when you interview me on The Diane Rehm Show!  It's really late right now and I should be in bed but I wanted to make my opening salvo into the blogosphere and state right up front that my goals are:
    1.    to become a guest on The Diane Rehm Show some day
    2.    to get myself to write more so that I can then mine my posts and publish a fabulously successful memoir whose sales will allow my family to move into a single family home and take care of my father-in-law (eventually)
    3.    to provide some interesting discussion material, humor,  or even insight, into the subjects of motherhood, its intersection with depression and anxiety, my own personal slog through the process of my diagnosis and treatment, my ridiculous addiction to Starbucks Chai Tea Lattes, and wherever else this might take me.  I may also comment on Diane Rehm show topics of interest, so watch out! 
I can't wait to meet you, especially if my dog, Indy, is still alive at the time.  You'd love him, I know.  Have a great night!


  1. Excellent first post! Let me know when u get on her show. I'll try to be one of the callers and ask you questions! :)

  2. Hurry up and write that best-seller so I can retire early. Oh, and do you think Diana Rehm has any other cyber-stalkers, or are you her first?
