I'm a walking contradiction. A procrastinating perfectionist. A shortcut-loving over-achiever. I work hard but don't always get anywhere. I'm always confused and often second-guessing myself. I'm addicted to Twitter and my BlackBerry and possibly both of my iPods. I think I have ADHD. I think I have the best friends in the world and on the Interweb. I like mayo. I like going for walks. I like knowing stuff. I like my family best of all.
N-dog is seven and amazing. Like a mini-me with super powers. He's intense. He had a stroke when he was born and tomorrow he's having a root canal. It's like a gave birth to my grandfather. Or Benjamin Button. Either way he is the coolest and the glue that holds this family together. No one wants to break his heart.
Loogoo is a house on fire. She's 4.5 and going on 14 in all those eye-rolling, I-hate-you-guys, this isn't fair ways. She was born knowing exactly what she wanted out of life and to hell with you if you stand in her way. She is alternately the sweetest, most loving girl on the planet. Like Jeckyll and Hyde if Hyde were Taylor Swift and Jeckyll was Lindsay Lohan, but, you know, FOUR.
J is the love of my life, but then we became parents. So now we struggle to figure out why we don't always like each other.
Tante is my sister and my Jiminy Cricket. She sets me right. She's also my best friend. My mother and father make appearances here too. They probably won't like what they read, but then... look away Mom! Over there! There's something shiny!
This blog has been a lot of things over the past seven years. Currently, it's shifting away from being a Mommy Blog. I'm on a journey. I need to fix myself so that I can be good to my family. I'm not more broken than you, we're probably equally flawed. I've just decided to document things so that I'm forced to follow-through on the repairs. Welcome to my weird brain.
