Slipped through a crack in the Register

The National Catholic Register is a terrific publication. I don't subscribe to it because:

A) I'm cheap, and
B) I can read other people's copies...and I'm also cheap.

The reason I bring it up — the Register, that is, not my cheapness — is to point out a wonderful article on stay-at-home moms who are Catholic bloggers. In it, writer Eric Scheske points us to worth-the-read blog sites written by moms, including:
For some reason, I got slipped into the mix.

"You might also enjoy The Lady in the Pew (, another heavily autobiographical blog, but one that contains a higher percentage of general interest posts as well."

There's a good reason why my posts are more "general interest" that those of the moms mentioned...I'm not a mom, stay-at-home or otherwise. Actually I'm a childless widow and co-owner of a small ad agency/design firm.

Makes me squirm a bit.

Because while the ladies mentioned above spend their time doing the noblest work imaginable, I spend much of mine convincing people to buy stuff they didn't know they needed. Sheesh.

Anyway, my hat is off to these moms!

Congratulations, too, to 2006 Catholic Blog Winners Julie D at "Happy Catholic" and Gerald Augustinus at "The Cafeteria is Closed" for their mention in the article. (I have it on highest authority that Gerald is also not a stay-at-home mom, by the way.) Also to Danielle Bean for receiving the monthly Reader Recommendation.

If it makes any difference (and it probably doesn't)...

Had I been blessed with motherhood, I hope that I'd be the stay-at-home kind. Like my mom was!
