Test post. Testing. Testing. 1,2,3. 1,2,3, doing the batty bat.
ya HOO
This is me circa late 70's. One of my first dance recitals. It was jazz, but I forget the song. Dancing was my childhood hobby.

So I'm going to try and catch up this blog little by little, with some of the entries of the journal I kept when I became pregnant with the Twinkies in 2002. I might even post from my older journals pre-2002.

The Twinkies are identical twin boys who were born 3 months early. So we have some outstanding and lifelong issues concerning their health and daily functioning. In the words of my third child, my daughter now aged 5, to a total stranger ..."two of my brothers are 7 years-old and they're medical". She also has a third brother, 3 years younger than her. She describes him by saying "...I love him very much. He's always very, very mad and he bites people".

So it's raining here. It's late afternoon and we were headed to the beach for a frolic. But now we're not going. So I can practice writing in my new electronic journal.

I wish I had more time to figure out how to create a decent template for this blog because I do realize it's quite bland. But hey, I have 4 kids. And I think we might be getting a dog soon. I don't know, we'll see. That's a big step and I don't want to be *that* person who gets a dog as a novelty and then ignores him. I love dogs.

So I'm always reading a book. I need it to fall asleep at night. That, and melatonin...sometimes benadryl if I drank any form of caffeine later than 2pm. I used to read only non-fiction, mostly biographies, but now I'm more open to fiction. I prefer gothic fiction, ghost stories and the classics. I can also talk about books, if I feel like it. And I love films: indie, dramas, foreign, comedies, suspense... I have a Netflix account and I'm always up for good movie suggestions. If you want to be my Netflix friend please send me a note. I only have 2 friends on Netflix.

I'm not a writer, but I'll try not to annoy grammer-phobes with incorrect apostrophes and misspellings. But I will be typing quickly and publishing as I do have 4 kids and soon a dog.

Did I mention only one of my kids can talk? Two use sign language. Three can walk. One can swim. One screams and cries a lot. Four scream just for fun. Two look exactly alike. One has green eyes. Four are the cutest. Three and a half are very well-behaved. Two are very laid-back and even-tempered. One craves attention every second of the day. One likes to be alone in a room where no one else is. One is obsessed with Scooby-doo. One loves unicorns and pink. One loves books...loves to tear them to pieces.

I'll see what I can do about posting everyday.

Love Ms. Crabass


  1. I love the title. I look forward to reading about your crazy life and maybe a dog. Who likes to be in a room alone? Is that you? Who is the naughty one? That wouldn't be Henry would it?
