Introductions - The Usual Suspects

If you have stumbled upon this blog, you are probably wondering "who is this woman?" and "why should I read her blog?" I am finally jumping on the blogging bandwagon. I have so many friends that already blog, and a few that just recently started, so I thought, "What the heck!"

So, I thought I would introduce myself and the main characters of this blog (and my life). My family is made up of the usual suspects:
Mom, Dad, child, two cats, one dog, and fish.

A.K.A. Mommy, Laura, Lou, Schmoo
Age: 29
Stay-at-home mom. Part time manager of retail craft store. Mildly OCD, or what some people would call a perfectionist. Best friend to Dad.
Interests: Scrapbooking, reading, being outdoors

A.K.A. Daddy, Aaron
Age: 35
Account executive in sales. Amazing dad. Best friend to Mom.
Interests: Hunting, archery, guns

A.K.A. Thomas, Boo Boo Chicken
Age: 2 1/2
Rambunctious. Stubborn. Oh so silly. Tests limits on daily basis.
Interests: Trucks, trains, cars, airplanes - pretty much anything that moves.

Cat one:
A.K.A. Sweet Pea
Domestic short hair. All black.
Stand-offish at times. Other times very affectionate. Has strange affinity for people that are not part of our family.
Interests: Chasing her tail. Cat two.

Cat two:
A.K.A. Tigger
Domestic short hair. Grey, black and white tabby.
Lover. Overweight. Tolerates great injustices by child.
Interests: Playing fetch with toys. Cat one.

A.K.A. Sadie, Pooper Piper (Enemy #1 to Cat Two)
Yellow labrador retriever
Spastic and hyper.
Interests: Fetch, fetch, eating, fetch


Tank #1: 150 gallons
Occupants: One cichlid, one plecostomus

Tank #2: 55 gallons
Occupants: Approximately 100 guppies, one plecostomus, one cichlid with bullying complex (used to reside in Tank #1)

You now have a small glimpse into who we all are. I am simply writing this to share my experiences as a mom, wife and woman. Perhaps you will be able to relate, perhaps not. If nothing else, I hope you will enjoy my take on life. And it is always nice for family and friends to see what you are up to.

So until next time . . .
