Me: My name is Jen and I have been many people over the last few years, SF single girl and married German Hausfrau and now a Mom. I’m not crazy and I don’t have multiple personalities, even though a shrink wanted to explore that avenue.
I used to be a very happy (a bit loopy) social, single girl in San Francisco. Then I moved to Krautland for a dude that I eventually married, Sparky and eventually spawned. Not a lot of night life out here in the bowels of Boweltown.
However, that’s all changing. I’m in the third stage of grief – Bargaining. I’m making deals all over the place. If I’m going to make it here, I’ve got to find a way to integrate all those voices in my head.
Like that old Chinese curse, I’ve been living in interesting times.
Sparky: The Kraut who brought me to this god-forsaken country. Smart guy without a hint of common sense. This makes for great stories and long days.
Max – Boy child extrodinaire. Never thought I could get so lucky. He is in desperate need of a sibling else he will be completely unbearable.
The WonderTwins: My brother, Jeffrey, and my sister Mim. The both have albino-like pale skin and red hair and white eyebrows. They aren’t really twins. Jeffe is 32 and Mim is 23. However, they do tend to join forces to thwart my God-like control over all things family related.
The Flying Cats: Kiska – older black girl cat. Olli – younger red headed cat terror. We’ve lost three of the flying cats in the last few years – Cleo, my darling girl. Sigmund, the great white shark who was actually a small black cat and Scrunchy, the loving-est lip licker. They are missed.
