Hey there.  Betty Ray here.  a/k/a Katrina.  Starting this mom blog (a Mlog?) of sorts as a way to release all the various little "things" that go on in my crazy head everyday.  The things that don't so much fit into my health & fitness blog - although it could be argued that clearing one's head of all that "stuff" would be great for mental health.  But...  Anyway, I'd love to hear from anybody whose got something to say.  Anything goes!  And I promise to keep the rants to a minimum.  :)

A little quick background - I'm crazy overworked right now as I'm helping with the house expenses while my husband pursues a career move.  I have a head full of artsy ideas and ideals that I just don't have time (or money) for and that are in no way expressed in my current career (legal consulting - yeah, not much wiggle room there).  Extremely frustrating!!

My resolution, not so much for 2011 but for the future, is to finally learn to take the photographs I want to take.  The ones I dream about and actually jot down in a little notebook I carry around (see, totally crazy).  I'm also hoping to transform my home somewhat into the one in my head (again, I snip articles, magazine photos and bookmark awesome decorating websites).  Oh yeah, and let's not forget my outward appearance.  Where the heck does an almost 40 year old woman find clothes that aren't sized and designed for a 13 year old or some 65 year old yuppie??!!  I've been able to begin to work on that here and there recently.

If you've made it this far, thanks for reading.  Hope to get to know everybody and have a great time!!


  1. Congrats on your new blog! It's good to know that I'm in good company! I post a lot of my photography on Aqua Sunday. It's fun to join in on some of the photography meme blogs out there. It's so nice with digital cameras now, easy to practice and take many many pictures! Have fun!

  2. Thanks Lyndsey. Once again I'll have to check out your blog roll from Aqua Sunday as I was having trouble finding photo blogs - well, I found some, but they were adult related. LOL

  3. Yay to the new blog!

    Love the whole photography thing too... Actually taking a photo workshop at the end of January with my friend.

    If your xmas card is any indication to your talent in photography now, I can't wait to see more!!! :)

  4. Oh, I follow this blog... she takes the most gorgeous pics!

  5. Thanks Laura. I can't wait to hear about your photo class. That sounds like fun. I took 2 at Bergen Camera so far just to get up to date on the basics. The trouble seems to be finding time to put it to practice! :)
    I will check out that blog. Thank you.
