Hi everybody! My name is Sarah, but I typically answer to “Saaaaaa,” “Mom,” or “MAMAAAAA.” Like most moms, I am a lot of things: mother, wife, maid, chauffeur, appointment maker, checkbook balancer, dishwasher emptier, food shopper, laundry putter-away-er, butt wiper, and meal microwaver to name a few. (Yes, you read that correctly. I’m an expert “microwaver.” Cook, not so much.)
I’ve lived in Dracut all my life and have 2 sons, Joey who’s 5 and Jimmy who’s almost 4. Joey was born with a congenital heart defect, called Tetralogy of Fallot, and at 3 months old became internet famous, known as the “Ridiculously Good-Looking Surgery Baby.” (Seriously, google it!) His heart has been fixed, and he’s presently very healthy. Now he’s just known to us as “Ridiculously Talkative.” You would think that Jimmy would never be able to get a word in, but nope. Jimmy is always able to make himself heard, as he is the one who is “Ridiculously Loud.” And energetic. And strong. And animalistic at times. Both kids are really great though, at least sometimes. I mean, it’s usually never at the same time, but hey, I’ll take it.
My husband Joe is great too! Great at breaking things, great at losing things, and great at forgetting things! His adventurous and accident-prone nature always provides us with an abundant supply of hilarious family stories to tell. In all seriousness though, as a firefighter, paramedic, and police officer, Joe is extremely hardworking and always knows what to do in every situation. This is very helpful, and it compliments my cluelessness and indecisive personality quite well. He is also the best cook that I have ever met, and that compliments my eating habits wonderfully.
When my head isn’t spinning from all of the above, I enjoy sitting around and doing absolutely nothing. I’m also fond of cocktails, food (I know I already mentioned that, but really, that’s how much I like it), and good adult conversation. In the warmer weather I love swimming, boating, and hiking with animals, as long as the animals are the 3 human creatures discussed above. Occasionally you might even see me running, which is actually more of an awkward jog accompanied by heavy panting and coughing. Someday, maybe when my kids are adults, there’s a chance that I’ll even have time to read a book again. In the meantime, I’ll just keep writing to let out the insanity that is my life. Thanks for reading!
