I realize I failed to spell out the meaning of my blog title. Well, my super clever (and unoriginal) choices were already taken so I ended up with this. Clever, yes?
The Pen of “Pen & Stink” alludes to the writing I will eventually do and then write about on this blog. See that? I’ll be writing about writing maybe one day if I write something. For now this will be my “The Secret” message to the Universe or whatever. You guys should see that movie; it is hilarious! I’m sure the book is just as funny, but I will never be able to tell you that for sure, because I won’t read it.
There is no nice way to put this… The Stink of “Pen & Stink” refers to my mom-life. You guys, it can be a literally stinky job–deuces are dropped, milk sours, kids like yogurt (which I find to be one of the most unbearable smells in the world). I will not be describing the smells of my job on this blog because “ew!” But I will write about mom stuff a lot because it is who I am and what I do. I would also like to point out that while my job is literally stinky, I want to figuratively explode because I’m so happy to be a full-time, stay-at-home mom. It is totally my thing.
Oh! I will also probably mention going to the gym now and again (next post). I’m resolved to lose the last 9 lbs of baby weight and I love to eat all of the autumn harvests, so food quantity-restriction isn’t an option…ever. The gym is a pretty stinky endeavor so we can add that to the Stink category too.
And who knows! Maybe I will find time to read more than a book chapter a night and will pop a book review on here too. No promises, but those posts will be filed under Pen too.
I’ll probably talk about other things and force them into one of the two categories with fool’s logic and a crowbar. Okay, so we are all on the same page now. Same page! Get it? And just like that I lost all of my “follows.”
