Me, M.I.A.

You may have noticed that I've been M.I.A. lately. Well, I have my reasons and I thought I would let you in on a little of my personal life...

I've been a work at home mom for 10 years. In my previous life, I was a legal assistant and have my paralegal certificate. I put that all aside while I traveled with my Army husband and raised my kids. We were lucky to live in some grand places like Heidelberg, Germany (where my second daughter was born), Monterey, California (where my first daughter was born) and Savannah, Georgia. I won't mention North Dakota ;-)

While all this traveling/raising kids was going on, my marriage was disintegrating. So, 19 years later, my husband and I are at the point of divorce. Ooh, the D word. It brings pity upon you. But I neither want nor need pity. It's been a long time coming and it is a good thing...really.

But, along with the big D, it means that, while I love my little soap business, it's not enough to support me (although I have dreams of hitting it big, like all other soapers)...SO, I'm back to work. Yup, I'm putting my legal assistant skills back into action and am now working for a wonderful law firm. I feel very lucky and blessed to have found such a perfect job for me despite the economy.

So, that is my official excuse as to why I've not been around to keep you up to date with the happenings at Latherati. Once I get settled into a routine, I will find the time to put as much effort into my business as I can. Please bear with me ;-)...
