yet another introduction

April 14, 2006

I’ve been posting here and there for a month or so, so I thought I’d introduce myself, too.
My name is Erin and I’m 29.  I’m the SAHM of a two year old daughter, Simone.  I LOVE being a mom.  I met Elisa and Erika a while back (our husbands work together) and learned about MotherTalkers that way.  
I live in Olympia, WA, where it is still freezing at this very moment.  I’m in grad school, I love to read, write, paint, knit and cook.  My favorite author is Ruth Ozeki, I only wish she had more books.  I love to travel, although I haven’t done anywhere near as much of it as I want to.
I come from a family of librals.  It’s not unusual, during dinner at my parent’s house, to hear the phrase “I think he might be…(the voice lowers to a barely audible whisper) a republican.”  The world seems terrifying right now, but I’m trying to wait to make a judgment until the next presidential election.  If the republicans can win with an approval rating this low, I’ll worry even more that we’ve been quietly taken over by a fascist regime.  That’s when I might step up the pressure on my husband to get out of this country.
I love MotherTalkers, in fact I did not understand blogging at all before MotherTalkers.  Now I obsessively check it at least once a day.  Now I get it!
