When I started this blog, I envisioned talking about kids, husband, work and volunteering. Somewhere along the line it has turned into Working Mom Meets “Family Guy.” It turns out that I like to write about things that are crass, gross, and politically incorrect. Sometimes I write about my kids. Often these two subjects meet up like a train wreck.
My name is Cathy Flynn, and I am a very VERY busy mom, sound editor, writer, volunteer, and optimist. I’m no Supermom, but I like to get a lot done in a short period of time.
I have three kids (6, 12, 16) in three different public schools, and with their age spread they will always be in three different schools. I am the dialogue editor for the ABC show Once Upon a Time, working from my bedroom on my home editing system. I am on the school site council of Colfax Charter Elementary School, as well as their PTA co-communications chairperson. I am also on the board of Neighborhood Council Valley Village. These positions enable me to write a column called Valley Village Report for North Hollywood/Toluca Lake Patch where I talk about events in my community which is located in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. I don’t have a nanny, cleaning lady, or gardener, so if I have a new blog it means I probably have a dirty toilet. Fortunately I have a low-maintenance husband who makes me laugh. I’m a sucker for funny.
This is not a blog about fashion, makeovers, recipes, crafts or interior decorating. I don’t have guest bloggers, and I don’t want to sell you anything – which is probably why I’m perpetually broke. I’m not trolling for comments, and because I am very VERY busy, there’s a very good chance that I won’t have time to comment on your blog either. I just hope I can make you laugh in 800 words or less.
