Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

Because it's all about me . . .

We have internet at home now!! It's a miracle! The installation dude was late, of course, but did eventually show up. Woo hoo! Spousehole decided not to get cable TV with it, but that's a battle I'm content to fight at a later date. I'm back online!!!

I thought I would ease back into things with a meme, stolen from my friend Ed. Hopefully this sort of covers me also for the meme tag that I owe my friend Joe from a couple months ago (sorry Joe!!).
