I am Ladybird and this is my website. I am wife to Birddog and mommy to EC, aka Babybird. Our extended family includes our canine children, Jake and Elwood, and feline kid, Callie. I live in a zoo. I have an addiction to winter coats, Calvin and Hobbes and really bad reality television. I truly believe that all problems can be solved by a Washington State Martini. I love the feeling of sand between my toes and cleaning my ears out with a q-tip. I watch documentaries and listen to NPR. The purpose of this blog is to keep in touch with friends, while trying not to offend my family. Let me know how I am doing.
