Cranky Complaints-Lady Buys BOOKS! (or tries to)

Welcome ICLW bloggers!

To any ICLW (IComLeavWe, April 2010) bloggers dropping in, I want to point out first of all that I’m not infertile in any way, or even TTC in any way.  I know a lot about infertility and even got a certificate from saying that I know my way around a chart… kind of.

So that’s my credential, right there.  But then again, I also I have three children who were very easy to conceive and – in the grand scheme of things – one more who was pretty easy to conceive (with two early mc’s between the last two, which led to my charting obsession)… so overall, no complaints.

Who am I?

Like it says above, I’m a fourFIVE-year-breastfeeding Yiddishe (Jewish) supermama of four (2 big, 2 little!), who writes unswervingly, cooks tenaciously, parents attachedly, gardens (semi-?) naturally, homeschools frugally, and navigates unfalteringly through the moments between the Kodak ones

Which basically means this blog is all over the place; it’s a good thing I’m not trying to make money with it!

I hope you’ll stick around even though it’s not about fertility, but I’ll understand if you need to move on.  When I was scared we were never going to be able to have more children, I just wanted to surround myself with other people who knew exactly what I was going through.  Oh, well, that and analyze pee sticks at!

So why am I participating?  I think ICLW is a cool meme.   Didn’t realize it was mostly a fertility-related thing when I stopped by, but that’s still great because I love reading other people’s blogs.

(you’d think the name Stirrup Queens would have tipped me off, but hey, I did live out west for a while, where stirrups are for horses!)

As for ICLW, I love the idea of unearthing new (to me) blogs… and leaving “graffiti” to let everyone know I was there.  Also nice to hear from others, for a change, because this blog only has a couple of regular readers (not including my sisters!).

So welcome, pull up a chair, stick around… and leave comments if you find something interesting!  (I am moderating comments at the moment, but usually have a <12 hour turnaround time)
