Wow! I'm Front Page News!

Last week I was interviewed by John Reinan at the Star Tribune about my blog. Yes, THIS blog! I was pretty surprised because as you all know, I'm not all that interesting. Sure, when our apartment was robbed in Boston, that made for an interesting read. Also, the worst job ever story is kind of cute. Or how about the time I faked my way through a Dr Seuss book? Or my brief, albeit intense relationship with Trading Spouses? That was kind of funny. But over all, I'm just an average woman writing about mundane stuff that happens in my life. Mostly revolving around my husband, Phillip and cat, Lola.

Well, I guess I'm interesting enough to be in today's STrib! The piece is about your normal, every-day people who keep a blog as a way to document their lives. Well, at least that's what I do. I use this blog as a replacement for the paper journals I kept since I was 10. Of course, I don't write about everything here. I would like to keep my job and circumvent jail time, if at all possible.

Uh, that was a joke, people!

You can read the article here.
And here's the photo of me and Lola that I was hoping would make the paper. It didn't, but that's fine with me.

I ♥ you Minnesota!
