Do you have your party hat on? It's time for the blog party from 5 Minutes for Mom!
Some party pictures to start us off:
Rebecca, my oldest, just turned 13. I held a blessing party for her.
She probably does not feel very blessed since I posted this photo of her (she's really a very pretty girl), and so this could be my last post since I may be dead soon. So I better make it good.
Katie, my youngest, is 10. She became famous at an early age.
Christopher, my middle child, is with Jesus. One day I'll join him and he'll show me around the place!
Keith is my husband. He likes ballroom dancing, because there's a big payoff.
Right now it is snowing. A lot. Normally we like snowing.
But recently we were on a cruise with my mother and I am spoiled.
I've written four books, including Honey, I Don't Have a Headache Tonight
(Keith liked the research), and To Love, Honor and Vacuum: When you feel more like a maid than a wife and a mother
, the basis of this blog! Come back frequently or subscribe and journey with me as we chat about housework, chores, marriage, cooking, and making sure people don't take you for granted!
I also write a syndicated parenting column
. I used to be in the Belleville Intelligencer, until I wrote this column
. Two weeks later they let me go. Christians all over the city cancelled their subscriptions, and I was hired by a rival paper the next day and given a raise. And a large circulation. So there!
I also knit
. Even in line at the grocery store. Hey, it's better than reading the cover of Cosmo!
I can quote the five hour version of Pride & Prejudice
. I can also quote all ten episodes of Band of Brothers
. I watch one for him, he watches one for me.
I hate nuts. And cheese.
We don't have any pets, though we had a lizard
To celebrate the launch of my blog, I'm going to mail out a copy of Reality Check
, a collection of 85 of my favourite syndicated columns, to a random commenter on this post. So comment away! I'll announce the winner on March 20.
