My husband I are living in the big city with our adorable little monsters, attempting to live true community in a country/city/world that doesn’t seem to facilitate that while simultaniously trying to figure out how to follow God authentically, be good parents, live fully, and a million other things.
Who you’ll probably meet in this blog:
My name is Jenna. I am a reader/writer/artist/student of the world/tuna melt eater/poopy diaper cleaner/wine drinker/continual seeker of the divine and whatever that may entail/sleep desirer/curry lover/dog cuddler/all around weird0 who swears too damn much and has a deep love of sarcasm.
I am married to David who is a ginger/fantastic cleaner/devoted student/beer enthusiast/complete and total video game fanatic/foodie/introvert/maker of the best meatballs ever/movie lover/technology genius.
We are the parents of Verona who is hilarious/squirrely/incredibly social/cuddly/freakishly happy/hair yanker and is eating Cheerios off the kitchen floor next to me as I type this. (It’s ok… David mopped earlier.)
and Finnegan who is adorable/tiny/sneezes a lot/still kinda boring at this newborn stage.
We also have 2.5 dogs. Daisy is a pitbull mix/cuddle whore/whiner/our firstborn/picky eater that we got at a shelter when she was a little puppy. Barney is a basset hound mix/freakishly enormous/possibly morbidly obese/Verona’s bff and is retarded. I don’t say that in a derogatory way, Barney is actually mentally handicapped. If he was a kid in your third grade class he would have been the one eating glue all though arts and crafts time.
Banana is our little old homeless man. I found him wandering around outside Walgreens and brought him home with the intention of taking him to a shelter only to find that every shelter in the city if full and nobody will take him. Banana is ancient/arthritic/senile/tiny, fluffy, and white with bladder control issues and bad teeth.
Anyway, I chose the name Plaid Sheep because we’ve been referred to as the black sheep numerous times, but I don’t think we’re black sheep. Maybe tiedye sheep, maybe plaid sheep, who knows. Feel free to imagine us with the color variation of your choosing.
That’s who we are. If anybody ever reads this… introduce yourself. Who are you?
