I’m Pearl*. I have this new blog. I’ve had blogs before, but it’s been a while and I’ve missed it.
I am that most magical of creatures, a fat 40-ish wife and mom and pro-nerd. Surely this is a voice that is not heard often enough, right?
Look, I’m really insecure about this. I just got back from BlogHer, which was so intent on telling me that my voice matters that I walked away thinking there’s no way my voice matters. That’s my brain, basically.
I’m going to write about me me me, my family, crafts, collecting weird vintage shit and almost burning down my house with the sheer force of my Christmas spirit (and way too many lights feeding off one outlet, but let’s agree to call it Christmas spirit and not an inability to do math). I will introduce the concepts of Social Calories, Kitschgasms, and Thrift Karma, as well as the practice of wearing stupid shit on your head as a way to overcome social anxiety. Some of this will make sense.
*I’m not really Pearl, except here. My husband has declared himself Doobie, and my 7-year-old son is Crow.
