Nice to see you! It’s been a long time. Some of you may remember me. If I’m lucky, I haven’t met some of you yet & we’ll have lots of fun getting to know each other. And if I’m super lucky, some of my old friends will come back to say hello!
I used to be a regular around here, and then Knittymunchkin arrived (nearly 5 years ago now!). He is my dearest, darling, (not so baby) boy & along with R. Darling (my sweet husband) we make up Chez Funkytown. Which is kind of funny since none of us speak French. But doesn’t “chez” sound ever so much more fancy than “casa”? I kind of like fancy.
A little bit about me……
I’m a 41 year old stay at home mama. I used to be a mad scientist (microbiologist) in a nice little lab where we tested food, water, & milk for bacterial pathogens. Sounds a lot more complicated than it really is. In fact, there were WAY more shenanigans going on than you would expect from a roomful of science nerds. But shhhh…. Don’t tell anyone or our reputation as a bunch of poindexter smarty pants scientists might be ruined forever. It’ll be our little secret.
I’ve been knitting since January 2006 and blogging since October 2006. And mostly I meant to only blog about my knitting, but before long my blog became a record of so much more as I got to know wonderful people across the web who were curious about other aspects of my life. I was honored people thought I had something worth talking about besides my knitting projects! The last 5 years have been spotty as I stopped and started blogging so many times I lost count. Knittymunchkin really requires so much of my attention. I never expected to be working harder at home than I ever did at a “regular” job, but surprise surprise, that’s exactly how it worked out. But he’s getting older. In a few months he’ll be in Kindergarten (!) full days & life will be so very different. I have a feeling I’ll NEED all of you much more when I’m rattling around in the house during the day by myself. Don’t get me wrong. I am going to love having some extra time to put into my house & my own projects, but I’m sure Knittymunchkin’s absence will affect me more than I can anticipate & it would be nice to have all of you to talk to if I get lonely.
So, hello again & hope to see more of you soon! Happy New Year to you!
