Occupation Writer
Location Cape Cod, Massachusetts, United States
Introduction I'm a work-at-home parent of two girls, the Bean (12) and the Peanut (10). We live on Cape Cod (hence the sandy shoes). I started this "slice of life" blog soon after my 40th birthday, as part of a tedious, affirmation-seeking midlife crisis. The affirmation-seeking part never panned out but I'm told the tedious aspect is thriving.

When you open your eyes underwater, do you ever worry that you'll drown?

Hell no. I worry that I'll lose my contact lenses.
