Let's be Friends

You are very welcome.  Do hang around.  Aren't my shoes cute??!!

I'm Jen. I'm a wife. 

I do ok at that.  

I have 6 kids.

Yes, they are all mine.

I don't do so well at it.

I'm a stay-at-home-mum.

Yes. Well.

My house is not clean often, and not in the "oh look, there are three glasses, a plate and a fork in the sink, 6 crumbs on the counter and a small pile of mail" kind of way.


My house looks like a bomb hit it.

I struggle. You will not find a perfect parent/wife/Christian here.  Which is good, right?  It means you won't click out feeling like a failure. In fact, I'll probably make you feel better about yourself. Isn't that a lovely thing to do for a person? I think so. You're welcome.

I've been arty-farty my whole life, and I love the theatre also. I didn't learn to drive until I was 24, and if someone gave me a million dollars the first thing I would do would be to book a breast reduction. If I couldn't sing, I wouldn't know what to do with myself. I wish I didn't rely on the spell checker so much and I'd love to re-learn the piano. I'd also love to learn interior design, record a c.d, go to Europe, learn how to shut my mouth before saying embarrassing things, get paid to throw parties and keep my house clean. I'm a lazy perfectionist, I have more than a normal touch of O.C.D, and Adam still thinks it hilarious that I brush the fringes on rugs so they are straight and aren't all messed up and arrrgghhh! *eye twitch*

I truly hope you think you could like me. De-lurking not only welcomed, but encouraged! (It saves me having to make initial contact with someone I don't know.)
