Hi, I’m Meg. Welcome to my blog, Soup Is Not A Finger Food. I named this blog after a phrase I actually said to my kids when they were little. One of them really did try to eat soup with his fingers. That worked out about like you think it did. They’re old enough to know better now, but I still hope that my rigorous table etiquette instruction will enable them to impress people, or at least keep them from embarrassing themselves (much).
I started this blog in 2008, moved it to Typepad briefly, and am moving it back to WordPress. So, please forgive any formatting irregularities that resulted from the import process.
When I began writing, it was more to catalog some stories and my thoughts, so that one day, if they wanted it, my kids could know all about me. At the time I had three boys, one cat, a golden retriever, and a husband. We threw ourselves into the suburban experience in a lovely enclave not far from Washington, DC. Since then, my kids have gotten older, the dog and cat have crossed the Rainbow Bridge, there are two new cats on the scene, we’ve divorced, sold the house, and moved to other accommodations in the same community.
In other words, things have changed along the way. As they do.
Something wonderful happened through blogging: I met a bunch of fellow bloggers IRL (in real life!) and count them now among my best friends. Facebook also happened, and I believe the instant gratification available there has changed the nature of blogging. But, when I decide to write something longer than a FB post, I still come here.
I truly appreciate your spending some time reading the Soup. Come back again soon!
(PS – the comments on this post from 10 years ago reference stuff I had in this post that I have since edited out.)
