I write, for now anonymously, from a suburban home in the midwestern United States. I have lived in the southeast and mid-Atlantic, and wouldn’t mind living in the southwest, or northwest, or northeast. Or across an ocean. “Home is where you are,” right?
I’ve been married since 2002 (met my husband in 1998), and we have two children: a daughter born in 2005, and a son born in 2007. I am right-handed, left of center politically, and middle to an older sister and younger brother, all of us born of two long-married immigrants from India. I am a news junkie, a neat freak, and a little hyper-educated. I’m hopelessly near-sighted, and sometimes insightful. I sometimes get impatient, too.
No, I am often insightful. And I am always impatient. I try to demonstrate the former, and hide the latter. Let me know how I’m doing.

This is a great blog. I’m a corporate husband and my wife is a lawyer. We have a baby daughter. I draw much inspiration from what you write!
Thank you — and congratulations on your baby daughter!
Just entering the corporate wife world and feeling a little lost. My 3 children are older but still seem to need me for various reasons, but certainly in a different way than when they were little. My husband has a full-on career, we’ve been married 20 years. I quit my job not too long ago to focus on home and family, and with the crazy demanding September that we’ve just had, quitting was a very smart thing to do. I don’t know how I would have managed my job, as well as the family! I suspect all my hair would’ve fallen out, not a pretty sight! Things have calmed down – for now. And I am not really sure what to do with my time besides the usual…off to Starbucks to have a tazo tea and contemplate my opportunities…:) Looking forward to reading more of your blog in my journey to understanding all there is to understand about a corporate wife!
Welcome to the corporate wife world, Laura! I think I know what you mean about feeling a little lost… felt a little lost when we first moved here — another part of the States away from all friends and family. It helped me to find a way to volunteer–either at the children’s school or in a community effort I cared about. Writing has helped too! Thank you for visiting and I hope you continue to enjoy my diary. Comment freely and if there’s a topic you’d like to discuss–do share!
I stumbled upon your blog while trying to keep myself sane. I left my job of 10 years to be a corporate wife and it feels weird not working. Moving from a tiny country in Asia to Melbourne a year ago, I suffered the trailing wife syndrome. We have been married for 17 years and with 2 teenagers who would rather be left alone. Oh! How I miss those times when they were younger.
I am actively looking for a job, embracing the culture here and enjoying the perks of a corporate wife. There are not many people who actually write about their experiences as a corporate wife or trailing spouse – please do not stop. Love what your wrote! Thank you so much.
So glad you’re out there, Linda. I hope this blog continues to keep you interested!
