It's about time

I've been sitting here staring at this blank box for close to an hour now, waiting for some epiphany to come to me so that I could post and share my wisdom with those lucky enough to come across my blog. So far....nothing.
So I'll just have to go with the simple truths I already know:
My name is Pauline Mercedes Lupercio (and NO---the middle name has nothing to do with the freakin' car! It actually means "Mercy" in Spanish, thank you very much!) and I am currently 29 and counting.
(Cue the "Jeopardy" theme as I begin to twiddle my thumbs again...)
Great. I'm already running out of material. No, seriously.
Anyway, my status as a first-time mom kinda booted me out of my safe little haven of misery and self-imposed despair and into the real-wide world of THOSE WHO ATTEMPT TO MAKE THEIR DREAMS COME TRUE. You see, I have wanted to be a stay-at-home-mom/freelance writer/best-selling author since, like, forever. I was just too scared to actually make the leap.
Then came baby.
So here I am...two weeks into quitting my job. My house is a mess, I have forgotten how to apply lipstick, my work clothes now consist of spit-up covered jammies and I am coming to the conclusion that I should be publicly flogged. Sure, I have some steady assignments starting to roll in here (and a pretty cool gig as Managing Editor for MI Dog Magazine) but a baby at home makes showering a major this freelancing thing is going to have to take some serious thought on my part.
So adding more work (like creating and maintaining a blog) only made total sense, right?
We'll see how it goes. Will I survive my new world of deadlines and diapers? I'll keep you posted. I have a feeling it's gonna get interesting.
