I just spent two hours cleaning out Worm's dresser and closet. It would have only taken an hour and a half, but I dropped a mug of coffee ten minutes into the chore. It splattered on the dresser, two walls, six feet of baseboards, the closet doors, the closet floor, a pile of freshly folded tiny t-shirts, and many, many toys. There were not enough variations on the eff word for me to properly express my frustration with this event. I made up a few new ones.
Well, I'm really not that busy... mostly. I'm not a joiner, participator, or over-scheduler. It's important for my family that I keep from spreading myself too thin. At least that's what I tell myself on those days I don't shower or leave the house.
What's the blog about?
It's about my life. The main characters are me, Jen, stay at home mom & smartass; Truck, hard worker & indulgent husband; Huck, school-aged son, profound thinker & future president of something; Worm, toddler son, incredibly cute & future juvenile delinquent. Frequent guest appearances by Jo, SIL, triathlete & coolest girl I know.
Do you talk like that in front of your kids?
What's it to ya? Okay, I do take the swear words down a notch, but I don't edit the irreverence, sarcasm, or general snark. Hey, I believe in teaching my kids all sorts of life skills. Also, you DO know what the phrase 'tongue in cheek means', right? Just keep that in mind whenever you read my stuff.
Will you write about me in the blog?
Hell yes. I ain't skeered. But, I will give you a nickname. I suck at giving nicknames, so if you meet me and think you might end up in a post, you might want to supply your own nickname. Just sayin.
