I’m Jen, the crazy voice in your head behind Dear Mommy Brain

A few fun facts about me…  I am a slightly crunchy, real food loving, aspiring frugalista, wanna-be clean freak, struggling intellectual, guilt-ridden working mom fighting through the fog of mommy brain.

I am the wife to one husband.  The mother to one wild pre-schooler.  The owner of one neurotic dog.  And the idiot that bought four two chickens off Craigslist.

You can also find me ranting on Twitter and Facebook.  Or if you have any burning questions for me, you can email me at dearmommybrain {at} gmail {dot} com.

Some things you will read about at Dear Mommy Brain…

Eating.  I love to eat.  And cook.  But don’t be expecting anything particularly resembling a recipe.  I do my best to provide a vague outline of what I’m doing, but honestly I don’t even know half the time.  I’m a “that looks about right” kinda cook.  And if something turns out well, I’ll share it with you.  I’m also a meal planning nazi.  As a working mom, it is absolutely necessary to meal plan for the sake of my sanity, but I don’t know why I didn’t do it before.  It’s made my life like 432% easier.

Saving.  I LOVE saving money, but honestly, I’m over the drugstore game.  It’s too much work and Walgreens has just broken my heart too many times.  So I’m always looking for easy ways to satisfy my frugal addiction with readily available, environmentally conscious supplies.  And I like to share these ideas…  Because I’m no hoarder.

Living Healthfully.  I’m not going to lie.  I have several addictions to unhealthy substances (of course, of the legal variety).  But I’m trying my damnest to clean up my act, mostly due to my over-enthusiastic immune system.  Because I’d never willingly give up caffeine if my colon didn’t bitch slap me everytime I cracked open a can.

Tackling Debt.  Follow me on my journey to clear over $11,000 worth of consumer debt in 12 months.  It’s going to be a bloody battle.

Plus, as a bonus, you get to read about all my failed attempts at being a crafty, organized, put-together mom.  **Guaranteed to make you feel better about your life.**

Why do I feel like I’m selling a Life Time Magazine subscription??
