Wordless Wednesday: As I Found Them…





Penning & Stinking

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.

Big Book

I forgot! We all read a lot of board books daily!

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.”
