I recently obtained an interview with a fairly prominent surgeon in our area. My part time, contract work would include updating his site and getting him up to speed with blogs, DIGGs, RSS feeds and all of that fun stuff that can really improve the ranking of your site (I’ll go into this in some future posts).
But for today, for the weekend, I wanted to post something a little more, well, fun.
As I sat in my class last night I opened up my purse in hopes of finding a pen.
Instead, I found the following:
- 1 yellow matchbox car
- 4 whole goldfish
- at least 6 crumbled goldfish
- a used tissue
- several flower petals that my oldest daughter had found for her ‘collection’
- a rock, again for her collection
- a small board book complete with things that squeak, feel rough, and move
I had to laugh. Had I not cleaned out my purse right then and there, chances are I could have walked into this upcoming interview with several things in tow that probably should have been best in the trashcan, or at home with the kids.
It’s funny, isn’t it, the tightrope that a working mother has to walk.
we need to be professional and portray a professional appearance when meeting potential clients or employers.
We need to be playful and portray a fun appearance and persona when with our children.
Sometimes it is difficult-and not feasible as far as time goes-to completely step out of one role and into another.
Besides, I believe these two roles, when blended, actually make us more productive in all of our roles.
So working moms, just for fun, take some time this weekend to clean our your purse.
Now tell me, what did YOU find lurking below!
