Honesty is what I am trying to achieve here, no matter how mundane that gets. I just want to let it all hang while maintaining the pristine integrity of the blogosphere. So, what can I tell you about me…I’m a motherless SAHM to three kids, two boys and a girl. I’m working on an endlessly nascent novel. I have been known to teach (Language Arts and Writing) to middle schoolers when those opportunities have come my way. I am allergic to only one thing, and that’s social bologna, which seems to effect me on a cellular level. I am fairly inept when it comes to today’s technology, though in another life,  I fancied myself quite expert at hooking up the components of my hi-fi stereo system, which had speakers the size of end tables.

As for parenting, I have many philosophies, though the one that currently comes to mind is this: Laughter is the best medicine. But it doesn’t hurt to keep some Benydryl handy.

All of these are in no particular order, though I feel more strongly about some than others:

THINGS I LIKE ABOUT ME (subject to change)

I make a wicked grilled cheese.

The way I keep things running over here.

My Flintstone-esque feet.

As it turns out, I am quite buoyant.

PET PEEVES (in no particular order, but nonetheless invariable)

Brown parts on bananas



Blind faith

When the toilet paper is on the roll backwards

Gum on sidewalks

Dog scat on sidewalks (or any kind of scat, for that matter)

The fashion statement made when shorts are paired with tights

THINGS FOR WHICH I WOULD WALK A MILE (Which, come to think of it, isn’t really that far. Why do people even use this expression?)

Any ice cream concoction containing a combination of peanut butter, vanilla ice cream and bits of chocolate.

New Toothbrush

An Excellent Massage (foot or body)
