so i live in a dallas suburb now. i am married. i have two kids. and a dog. we rent a nice townhome. drive two cars. my husband has a decent job. i stay at home. we are generally happy. aside from the fact that my kids have weird names, we're about as cliche as a middle-aged bald guy driving a mazda miata.
and now i'm going to post a picture of my dining room, because that's what we (mommy bloggers?) do. we post pictures of things we do/create. maybe it's because subconsciously i need validation. maybe it's because i need to legitimize how i spend my time. this is getting too deep for a (mommy?) blog:
it needs art, and i have just the thing. matt brought home some mid-century soviet social propaganda and space race posters as a concessionary act after his recent shenanigans in central asia, and i heart the posters very, very much. he knows me. and i think that if some of my new ultra-conservative neighbors saw the posters they would think i'm a socialist. i'm not. i just think the reds had some good design ideas.
things fox has said that are funny:
"mom, i told my teacher that abc's was your favorite song."
"arkansas lives in the united states!"
and i love that when he sings he's generally a half a second behind everyone else. i hope he hangs onto that when he's of "primary program" age.
oh, here's another picture... "my dad went to tajikistan and all i got was some totally righteous traditional garb:"
