What's the Skinny?

Someone interviewed me.


That's right. One Ms Tori Tarvin from 'Skinny Mom' interviewed me.

Now, c'mon, hold the jokes. I know what you're thinkin'...

Q: Why aren't you skinny?
A: Because I loves me some donuts.

You're thinkin' that 'Skinny Mom' interviewing me is like '17' interviewing Meryl Streep.
Like 'Playboy' interviewing Mother Theresa.

Bring it. I can take it.


Anyway (nose tossed haughtily in air), the interview starts off like this....

I love the fact that every week, we find a new family that virtually opens the door for us and let’s us stay awhile. This week, we are the guests of Anne. And we are lucky enough to be on a farm or as Anne has titled her blog “the Funny Farm.” Now, why is it so funny? Well, it’s not exactly a farm. By that we mean she doesn’t get up to the sound of a rooster to milk cows–there are none–or clean out stalls, or sell any of their produce. Here is why she considers her so-called “little patch of dirt” a farm:
“Because I usually have dirt under my fingernails and mud on my jeans.
Because the critters outnumber the humans by about 5 to 1.
Because we eat eggs from our chickens.
Most importantly, because it smells like a farm.”

With 6 teens and 3-4 dozen animals–and the occasional Foreign Exchange student–we can see why Anne has such a great sense of humor. This blog is chaotic and addicting to read. It’s like TLC without the commercials! There are heartfelt moments where Anne chronicles her son, James’, fight against RAD and PTSD and there are laugh out loud moments like her Mirth Mondays. Come laugh, cry and everything in between with Anne’s funny farm.
