Taking a deep breath and jumping in.

So, I'm dipping my toes into the blogging waters.  I've been fortunate enough to connect with a community of wonderful, talented bloggers locally who have encouraged me repeatedly to dive in.  At the same time, because these other bloggers are so wonderful and talented, I'm more than a bit intimated to join the ranks.  But here goes.

Why "Just After Bedtime"?  I'm the mom of two beautiful and busy girls and my days are filled with time at the office and time with them.  It seems that only "just after bedtime" -- that moment after both girls are tucked into bed -- is when I can collect my thoughts about the day and not be something to someone else.  Some days these moments last longer than others, before I jump back into work, planning for the next day or downtime with my spouse.  I hope to use this blog as a place to help capture these moments and put a few thoughts down from time to time.

Things I may cover here from time to time?  Being the work-outside-of-the-house-wife to a stay-at-home-dad.  Putting an end to breast cancer, 3 days at a time.  How fast time goes when you're spending it with two active children.  Turning 40.  Pop culture.  Learning as I go while I blog.  And very likely, trying to find my blogging voice and the time in which to use it.

For those who are out there, thanks for joining me on the ride -
