Starting next week, I will run a weekly blog called "Midlife Isis." My life has changed a lot in the past six months, and this personal blog will focus on nearing what could be "midlife" as well as motherhood and challenging, unexpected life happenings.

I will continue to write articles and briefs, so if hearing about my personal life might is not your bag -- and I don't blame you in the least if it's not -- skip anything with "Midlife Isis" in the title. Other readers will, hopefully, relate to my new blog that's guaranteed to be honest and upbeat.

"Midlife Isis" is, of course, a play on the words "Midlife Crisis." Isis was an Ancient Greek goddess who was often worshiped as the ideal mother and wife. Although I strive to be these things, I have sometimes failed, and so I use her name as something to strive for and ironically.

Hope to see you next week in Blogland.
