Next to the spiffy pantry, the catch-all area by the phone started to look worse than usual. I'm not usually into cooking, cleaning or organizing. I like a clean house, but I pay Jazmin and Maricela for that. I like good food, but I consider take-out Thai good food. And my feelings about junk have always been, "If it's behind a closed door, it doesn't exist." Do you think Truck is whispering subliminal messages in my ear at night? "You love to clean." "Baking is fun." "Messy cabinets are the devil's playground."
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.
