Talking with a fellow Wahm

No, I don't mean talking in a chat room, on instant messenger, on the boards, or even email. I'm talking good ole fashioned picking up the telephone and really talking (with your mouth...not your keyboard). Have you done that lately or yet, even? Today I had the absolute pleasure of talking with Patty Gale from http://www.pattysprettypaper.com. First of all I gotta say Patty's a really nice gal and I really enjoyed speaking with her. Secondly, it was oh so very nice to really talk with someone about our home businesses. For once I wasn't chatting with a four year old about which monster truck goes faster; Grave Digger or Spiderman (Grave Digger of course!). I wasn't even talking with my husband or mother who honestly don't have a clue as to what I do. No, I was talking with a real live work at home mom who deals with the same things as I do from day to day. Let me tell you...it was sweet! Try it sometime; you'll be impressed!

    I'm so not a phone person. I must admit I'm a different person on the phone then online or even in person. I've never been comfortable with the phone BUT I have talked to other mom business owners from time to time and its the only time I enjoy the phone!

    I LOVE my business. I love working in my business and talking about business and marketing ideas...etc...so its always ablast to talking to another mom who shares your passions and knows how it is to be a business owner and mom :)

    Wow, Anita! Thanks so much for your sweet compliments. I, too, enjoyed our conversation very much and it was so nice to put a voice with a face. The really nice part is that I felt like in some ways I already knew you. I agree, since becoming a wahm, I don't get nearly as much adult conversation during my day as I used to. So many of us have cyberspace interraction, that it's kind of easy to forget that we are all living and working "out there" in the world. Hope that makes sense. Anyway, it was fun! We'll have to do it again sometime.

    You're very welcome...I meant every word of it ;) Yes, adult conversation is something I really crave more of sometimes since working at home too. I too felt as I already knew you...we must have felt something to have been talking for an hour, LOL!
