Welcome to the Trenches!

Hello to everyone new visiting from SITS!

I lamely attempted to spiff up these here Trenches for your arrival, but alas, I have 3 little boyz who seem to thrive amidst chaos and clutter and scattered ball caps and assorted sneakers and Nintendo DS games and Matchbox cars (do those suckers PROCREATE when we're asleep or WHAT?!)

So go ahead and take a seat (please excuse the crumbs) (and the broken toy parts) while we become acquainted:

I am Sarah. Not Palin. (Although we did win for Best Couples Costume!)

I am Mother, Wife, Paralegal (full-time in Boston), Sister, Friend, Blogger, Wine Drinker+ Chocolate Lover=Yo-Yo Dieter=Occasional Runner, and Tire Swing Pusher Extraordinaire.
This is my Hubby. He likes Jack.

And these hooligans? Are my offspring. Flesh of my flesh and fruit of my loom womb.
( Yeah, I think they're pretty cool too.)

No topic is off-limits here in the Trenches: Bad haircuts; desserts; pajamas; poop; puke; trampoline jumping; and feeling frazzled. You name it, we got it here for ya!

So welcome and enjoy!

Love it! Love it! Love it! Happy sits sday:) I had that same unfortunate haircut when I was 14 and went to our local small town salon asking for "the Rachel." So maybe all those guys sporting the mullett aren't as ridiculous as we think. Maybe they juat have crap hairdressers!

Visiting from SITS.

I too have three boys and went to Boston University. I have since left my roots and have been living near Aspen, CO for over twenty years.

Even though I love it here in the mountains, I miss the ocean and the warm summer nights back East.

Enjoyed relating to your posts. To bad that we don't live near each other to swap funny stories. I guess we'll just have to settle by visiting each others' blogs.

Look forward to getting to know each other http://isdisnormal.com

I think that I'm more conservative than you.

However.

I love chocolate. My kids. My man.

I run too.

And I'm faithful to my man.

See, we do share common ground.

So, is it ok that I really dig your blog?

Sweet dreams!
