Mission Statement

We are a people who tell stories in one form or another.
After all isn't blogging just another way to gather around and tell those stories?

Motherhood is Painless is about finding the humor in the every day. In finding the happiness in those stories that we tell. What would happen if we *all* learned to laugh at ourselves? Maybe then the dark corners would recede a bit and we would all rejoice at the love we find there.

tagged!

I got tagged by Kristen with a meme.

Rules are:

1. Link to your tagger and post these on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Ok - so while Claire is resolutely not napping, but reasonably babbling away in her crib, here we go!

1. I lettered in a sport in high school. That sport was badminton.
2. I just moved to a new apartment. I would like to unpack, but am paralyzed by the sheer magnitude of the boxes. Damn, we have a lot of stuff.
3. I cannot stand the taste or smell of yogurt. Consequently, it is the Clairebaby's most favoritest food ever. I have to concentrate very hard not to gag when I feed her every damn morning.
4. I went to high school with an 80's pop star. I'm from Long Island. (Do the words "Electric Youth" mean anything to you?)
5. I can cross one eye. (It's an untreatable form of lazy eye. Thus, glasses make more sense than contacts. They help the lazy eye work where and when it's supposed to.)
6. I am afraid of heights. Even watching someone do something up high in a movie freaks me out a little.
7. That's nothing compared to my totally rational fear of spiders. I once woke my father out of a relatively sound sleep to get a spider out of my room. I think I was 22 at the time. (I didn't say I was proud of this fear, now, just that I had it.)

So, there you have it.

Tag, you're it!

Oh, right!

Boy. Staying in Brooklyn this weekend 'cause I felt like I needed a weekend to see what I completely forgot to do during budget season.

So far "pay gas bill" has been the most inconvenient, with letting half my tax document wander off to play in the junkmail heap running a close second. Things are already looking up, gas is on now & I did retrieve the tax docs tonight.

Welcome to Jackson Heights. I have you beat by about 30 years. Found you thru Frogma. Me and DW grew up on 93 and Northern blvd. First apt together on 91 st and 31 ave. Mark Twain Diner was our favorite. Library is on Astoria Blv. We have been living in Stormville ny for last 30 years.
