About Me

My husband is a social butterfly. I am a hermit at heart, but have come out of my shell more since the birth of my son, Quint. When I introduce myself to other people, I very often point in the distance and say, "I'm his wife." And I'm proud to be his wife! We were married in 2002 and we both still like it! Quite the accomplishment these days.

More often, now, I'm Quint's Mom, but I started this blog before he was born and I'm not going to change the name of my blog. The subject... yes. Quint was born in September 2009 and has dominated my blog pages ever since.

Our second son arrived in May of 2011 and we're getting used to being a family of four. I think I'll call him Deuce on the blog. Or maybe Hank.

Right now, I'm a stay-at-home-mom but that's primarily because I lost my job while I was pregnant. We think we've found a way for us to afford for me to stay home with the boys. We'll see how much cheaper I can make life for us. This is a bit of a challenge because I'm pretty darn frugal anyway. I need to read the Tightwad Gazette again and seriously think about couponing. The only reason we don't coupon is that we hardly ever use name brands, and Aldi brand is cheaper and yummier than even the store brand at most stores.

So that's basically us!
