Please allow me to introduce myself

As usual, I'm late to the introduction party.

I blog over at Major Bedhead, where I agonize over things like cat shit and tantrums (mine and the babies'). I'm currently a SAHM but am trying to find a job. Something that will pay me a fabulous wage while letting me be as slothful as possible. Given that my skill sets are of the administrative assistant variety, I can't see this happening any time soon. Unless, of course, someone wants to pay me vast sums of money to blog about shit. That I can do.

I have four kids - A is 18 and knows everything. O is 12. Boo is two and a half, in the worst way, and the Bug is almost 10 months old. I married a Canadian, who is referred to as TCBIM (That Canadian Boy I Married). He's a good guy but he gets on my last nerve. Frequently.

I live even further west than Mrs. Chicky. I'm in the Pioneer Valley, living behind the Tofu Curtain. Crunchy central. I love it out here, although I've had to make a new set of friends since my friends from the eastern part of the state think that driving out here is a treacherous proposition, requiring provisions and protection from wild animals. Wimps.

I'm a die-hard liberal and a die-hard Red Sox fan. Everything else is negotiable and subject to change without notice.

The American Boy I Married is on my last nerve, permanently, so I can understand where you're coming from ;)

Mrs. Chicky said...

OMG! The "Tofu Curtain"! I'm rolling over here!

Welcome, silly lady.

I have two brothers that live in your neck of the woods, but NOT behind the Tofu Curtain. More like last town on 5 on the CT line, where the Joos live. They both HATE it. But I like where you live, in granolaville. Very very crunchy!

Tofu Curtain...I'm guessing it's made with silky? Or extra Firm?

That expression better make it into the lexicon. It's too good to not be used!

Great to meet you!

The Tofu Curtain is an awesome expression (as someone from Western Mass in the 80's, I'll say "wicked awesome" a lot).

18, 12 and then 2 1/2 and 10 months! Holy cow! I hope 18 & 12 at least do some babysitting for you!
