So hi, y’all! Just checking in because I got the best email today from my Aunt Mary, who lives in Memphis, saying “Hi sweetheart. Whats with the harpies? I know you would never expect that I would read your blog regularly, but I do and have enjoyed the lively commentary.” Basically, she wanted to know where the fuck we’ve been, especially me, and to say that she would kinda like it if I would get back in the commenting, feminist caterwauling saddle.
I was completely psyched to hear from Aunt Mary, because she’s a seriously awesome lady—-warm, funny, caring, went from being a small business owner to changing careers and going to law school about 20 years later than most law students—and I had no idea that she liked our blog (especially since she’s a Republican and of a more traditional turn of mind than most of us). I definitely want to get back to the blogging and I know some of the other Harpies do too…we’re just having a whole shitload of life experiences at the moment. There’s a lot of grad school going on, plus some family obligations. I’m still working my butt off in my new job, and in a very happy relationship that’s consuming a lot of time (in a good way!). But the job should calm down somewhat this summer and I’m hoping to get back to blogging and spending more time with y’all. A lot of my feminist commentary of late has been limited to linking to articles on Facebook and going “Can you believe this shit?” and waiting for others to chime in that they cannot believe this shit or perhaps wanting to argue that it’s not really shit and maybe I just need to relax, which has led to some entertaining and combative Facebook threads. But I miss our commenters and our lively community here.
So there we are. Please let me know what, if anything, is new with y’all in the comments. And more to come…I promise.
