welcome, SITStas!

Welcome, welcome!


Today is my long-awaited, almost-excited-enough-to-pee-myself day at The Secret is in the Sauce, and I'm so glad you stopped by!



And to my regular readers and their moms who are also regular readers, I am grateful every day that you guys come back to see what sort of hijinks are being perpetrated by the Goobers of Pumpkin Ranch.

That's us, up there. Your cast of characters. And here are three posts that will hopefully transmit the flavor of Unruly Helpmeet and convince you to come back and play.

The infamous Farbie cake: a tale of WTF to FTW.


In which I say goodbye to my fake boyfriend and Photoshop his image repeatedly.

Goatgetting: Behold the way that I constantly torture my husband.


Or, if you're a wacky sort of adventurer, you can just type anything into that little Search bar on the right, and you will be surprised what comes up.

Armadillos?

Yep.

Cupcakes?

Far too often, and one time a blue alligator ate my cupcake, and I almost cried.

Dr. Krog throws up when he sees a paper cut?

Well, something like that.

This blog isn't just about being a mom and a wife, though-- it's also about being an artist and a writer and someone who not only loves the absurd, but basically demands it on a daily basis. You can read my bad high school poetry, see a virtual exhibit of my last gallery show, check out haikus about family adventures, or even read my totally messy and somewhat TMI birth stories. Heck, I'll even tell you about the method we're using to avoid another birth story. There are over 500 posts, so you're sure to find something you'd like. Eventually.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back!

Again, my, my, my Delilahyou make me laugh and I treasure that.

You remind of the joy and terror of having children, even tho my youngest is turning 26 in a week and getting marrit, it rushes back like a river flood.

Thanks!

strokeofliving said...

Congratulations on your spotlight in the SITS rotation, it's well deserved.

I know that you are "more than" a mom, a wife, and an artist and you blog about it very well.

In fact if you have the time to stop by my blog [shameless plug here]and read Toast on Tuesday, it is dedicated to parents for just that reason. So my hat is off in respect and I applaud your SITS day, again.

Heather said...

Congrats on your SITS day! I can't wait to dig into your blog. Sounds like you have some very interesting posts awaiting me!

Delilah S. Dawson said...

A helpmeet is a mate, a wife, a spouse. That sort of thing. I'm pretty unruly about it, in general.

Although Dr. Krog did suggest the name "unruly hippopotamus" for the blog, which did not amuse me nearly as much.

What a day! I discovered SITS and as a result your blog. Awesome. You are hilarious!

You're fake boyfriend post was great, and that John Travolta comment made me laugh out loud, and reminded me of the time my sister (then a teenager) said on a family car ride that John Travolta had the butt of God and my father nearly drove off the road!

Happy SITS day. I love the goatgetting. I think I'll have to steal some ideas.

You did much better on the cake than I would have.

I guess when I outgrow my secret crush I'll have to think of some appropriate send off. But I'm not ready to give up Mark Harmon yet...he's older than me and he ages well with time...at least I think so. The crush has gone on about thirty years now.
