Who am I? A Brief Message From Your Sponsor….

I’m a thirtysomething hausfrau from the burbs. I cohabitate with my husband and three boys four and under. (Nope, that is not a typo!) I love them, love them, love them. They help shape who I am, but don’t define who I am.

These are the things I know to be true:

  • I drink too much
  • I swear too much
  • I eat too much
  • My muffin top is too big, and will be until I address all of the above. I’m working on it. Sort of.
  • I don’t fold my laundry right after I take it out of the dryer. Sometimes? I mix whites and darks. Just because.
  • I don’t dust enough, vacuum enough or cook enough.
  • I’m a smart ass. I wish more people were, too. I’m heartened by the belief we all have potential for smartassishness.
  • There is humor to be found everywhere. The grocery store, hospital publications, the dmv. (Yeah, even there!) You want funny? Sometimes you need to just bring your own funny! And if you can’t bring it, then you need to find it. You’ll find it here.

Also? I’m not going to find the cure for cancer and I probably won’t be the person to broker peace in the middle east. I wish for these things to happen, but as I struggled through high school chemistry and some days get only as far as my local Target, I’m just not the right woman for the job.

I can’t do your taxes. I won’t mow your lawn. Don’t ask me to go spinning. Unless you’re spinning through a drive thru or a shoe sale, I just ain’t that interested!

On this blog, I search for answers to pressing questions. Why is bread fancy now? Why won’t cashiers just play along and card me? Why is some children’s literature scarier than my underwear drawer? Why must I speak in tongues at Starbucks? Who invented daylight savings and where can I find him so I can give him a beat down? Why don’t more people speak in italics?

I write because I LOVE IT. I aspire to be a published author and work toward that goal every day. In the meantime, I know I can make you laugh. That’s a promise. See, there’s not enough funny in this world. We all need to laugh more. Who thinks, “I laughed too much today! I want to laugh less tomorrow!” Dude, NO! Preposterous! If that’s you, then take that shit on up outta here and go grouse somewhere else! Unless? Your grousing is funny. Then I beg your pardon—please stay! You’re among friends!

If you want to laugh more, subscribe to my blog by clicking the orange button on the home page. It’s fast. It’s free. It’s fun. Where else can you get fastfreefun? Tell me, because I want some! And if you’re loving you some freefastfun, please tell all your friends. Share your opinions in the comments. Keep the party going! And remember? Muffintopmommy is not just for mommies!

Seriously? Life is crazy. What’s the point if we can’t all laugh about it?

    OK, you’ve found your niche… OF COURSE you have started your own blog. You have the greatest command of the English language of anyone I know! Will I see you in Exeter this weekend? Hope so!

    Miss you and can’t WAIT to read more of your blog…

    Thanks for keeping us laughing!

    Hey Janet! I just read a couple of your letters and yes I have been there done that. With 3 boys and a husband I never see anyone other than me or Caroline (poor girl) change the tp. Once I purpously let the empty roll hang there for about 5 days. I used other toilets as did the others!! How sad? I finally gave up and switched the damn thing.

  8. jrfrong

    Molly, doesn’t that just make you wonder what kind of toilet paper standoff went down when Fronge and Sat lived together? (Maybe their moms came and changed it!) And hey, at least you have an ally in the house—the only way I’m getting a girl is if I go get a dog!!!! And, though some of them are super smart, not sure they know how to change toilet paper rolls!

  9. Great site! Kerry Anderson passed the link on to me. I have three kids five and under…I get it! I love to write as well, and would be honored to have you link to my site. Check it out when you have a chance…www.thellamasdrama.blogspot.com

    Great job!

    • jrfrong

      Beth…HI! Thanks for your great comment…three under five? Yeah, we need to stick together! Just checked out your blog really quickly…first of all, wow, great blog name. You nailed it, sister! And I love, love the way your blog looks. If you don’t mind, I’d love to email you some questions later when I have more time (as currently, there is a little boy hanging from my leg…I keep shaking said leg, but nope, he’s keeps on a hanging on—I think he’s mine so I should probably pay attention!) I’d love to link up to your blog and will add you to my blogroll (wait, that’s what you meant by link up, right?) when I remember how to do that…yes…I really am THAT technologically impaired! I vow to improve….soon, very soon!

  10. Jean
