Fairly Odd Mother

Frantically waving my magic wand to make wishes come true.

So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye. .

While many of my favorite bloggers continue to party it up at Blogher 2007, I am here packing, packing, packing. Tomorrow, we leave for a week up in Vermont with my family and my babysitter, I mean, my mom. Our dining room is full of bags, boxes and random items. We are staying in a condo which means "bring food"; I think I have enough food for a month.

I may get time to write from up north, because I hear they have the internets way up there too. But, just in case they do not, and just in case you are really itching to read something, I will point out three "old" posts that may give you a better idea of who the enigma called "Fairly Odd Mother" really is. ("Old" is in quotes since I just started this blog last October).

This is my first post. I agonized over it for longer than I did the name of my blog (which I didn't agonize over at all seeing as my husband thought of it). I think that it sums up a lot about who I am, even now, minus most of the drunkenness.

This is my second post and the first one where someone I did not know personally commented. Daisy, I can't believe I've let you disappear from my life. You don't know how much your comment meant to me! So, now, you will be added to my Google Reader and stalked by me for life. (j/k about the stalking!). This post is one of the few in which I discuss homeschooling. As September starts to reappear, and I start to panic, expect to see more posts on this subject.

Here is my 'backstory' or whatever you call it. I keep meaning to link it off my front page, so that it can be what people get when you click on "About Me", but that requires a bit more know-how than I know how.

Hope you all have a lovely week and, if I get inspired, I'll pop on to talk about our week up north. Cheers!

Fairly Odd Mother...I hope you have yourself a fab-tab-U-lous time in Vermont. If you are anywhere close, please give my regards to my old pals Ben and Jerry ... and bring me back a case of Chunky Monkey, please.

I just got back from a month of goofing off myself and I must say it was wonderful.

I hope you're having a wonderful trip in VT. I'm hoping to be up there in a few weeks to visit the Stephen Huneck dog chapel. If you stop by Ben & Jerry's, have a cone for me! :)
