Why am I called a stay-at-home-mom when I am never at home?

I am 42 years old.

I have been married for 18 years to a wonderfully kind curmudgeon.

I am the mother of two wonderful girls aged 15 and 11. Who have decided that they want to be known on lj as Sprinklekit and Breezy.

I am a SAHM who also takes care of two wonderful boys. Their LJ names are Minireggie and Squishy. I had two girls of my own but I have to borrow the boys.

We currently have one cat, Peanut(7)
and 1 guinea pigs named Eyrwyn.

We also have one more cat Edie living on the premises and a dachshund named Beso.

To accompany the newest animals we have three new people housemates as well.

I love to sing and am a member of a local community Choir called the Just For Fun Singers.

I am a geek at heart and volunteer for one of my local Sci-fi conventions, CONvergence.

I also love to participate in Geek Partnership Society (GPS) events as well.

I have a tendency to put "too much on my plate" both in the buffet line and in life.

Feel free to "friend" me. I like friends. This a just a "basic life" journal. I rant occasionally, but almost never about my job. *waves to the parents of the daycare boys* I admit that I am addicted to memes and cute stories about the kids.
