I’m Procrastamom. I’m also Vicky. I’m 38. First and foremost I am Mom to daughters Ashley (19) and Andie (14) and son Adam (12). I’ve been married to the love of my life and high school sweetheart, Richard, for 19 years. Have you done the math yet? Yes, we’ve been in the bonds of holy matrimony and the throes of parenthood since the tender age of 19. Many thought we wouldn’t last. They’ve been wrong so far. And now I’m channeling Shania Twain. Looks like we made it — Look how far we’ve come my baby — We mighta took the long way — We knew we’d get there someday… We don’t own our own home, but for the last nine years we have owned our own cat. Her name is Pizza Maria. We let Ashley name her. We say we never make the same mistake twice, but Richard would like to get a dog and name him Jackaninny. Clearly we are not cut out for pet ownership.

If you’re an old friend and have found me using the many clues and keywords in the first paragraph, then please email me to say hi at procrastamomATgmailDOTcom. If you’re truly one of my friends you’re smart enough to figure out that you need to replace the AT with an @ and so on and so forth. If you’re too stupid to do that then we were probably never really friends in the first place and also, you smell. Move along.

If you’re not yet one of my friends, but would like to be then please email me at procrastamomATgmailDOTcom. I am currently taking applications from people who would like to say nice things to me, people who like to buy me things and Bill Gates. Bill, I’m in serious need of a yearly vacation to somewhere hot and beautiful my friend and if you’ll just take a minute to go through the change embedded in your couch cushions and direct it my way, I would totally toss a handmade thank you card in the mail for you, buddy.

If you’re ever offended by any of the material in this blog or the values that I hold, please feel free to click the X in the top right-hand corner of your browser window…if you’re a PC user. If you’re a Mac user then you need to utter “close this filthy blog” into the microphone embedded in your bottom lip, or whatever it is that you elite and mysterious Mac users do with your space-aged contraptions. I have no idea. The only time I ever tried to use a Mac I almost brought down an entire Fortune 500 company’s system. That was a short lived temp job right there. Seriously though, if I offend you please move along. There’s plenty of blog fodder out there for every taste and if I’m not right for you there’s someone else who is. Fly away Little Bird!

If you’re sticking around you need to know that I am a serious COMMENT WHORE (read: crazy person). I love, love, love to get your comments (read: save every one in a folder named My Precious) and treasure your input (read: stay up all night reading and re-reading and also analyzing)(see also: crazy person). Please never hesitate to tell me how much you adore me or agree with me or politely disagree or how you had the same experience or give me assvice.

For eight years we lived in the same house as my parents. In the basement (just as cool as Chris Farley living in a van down by the river. Okay, not that cool). In February 2008 we ran away and moved into our own house that we don’t own, but really love a lot because there’s not one person over the age of 50 living there. We have our little family of five back together again and, best of all, we now have PRIVACY!

My birthday is April 27th. I like white gold and my birthstone is the Diamond. Please shop accordingly.

  5. Hey, just wanted to tell you I tried to leave a comment on your most recent post but there’s no comment form showing up 🙂


  6. Hey Izzy.

    I had the comments turned off for a few days for a kind of “test peiod”. But who am I kidding? I can’t leave them off forever (read: more than 6 or 7 days).

    I’ve turned them on for my most recent posts, so comment away.

    It will make my day!


  7. You are TOO funny. I was searching Google for some ideas for my 8 year old son’s Nerf Gun party and Google pointed to you. I clicked, I read, I laughed. The first thing up was your little letter to the parents of the kids at your son’s party. I think we might know some of the same people because those same kids have been at some of my kids’ parties (though this is all purely hypothetical as we live in different countries! Keep up the funnies!


  8. Killing myself here…..

    You rock…

    we need to get together!


  9. Ok I stumbled across your site on the mom blogs and I’m glad I did. Like you I tend to put things on the backburner, not always but mostly. Also I love, love, love to get comments and I love to leave them so there you go-another comment whore. As for living with your parents maybe you and I can start some kind of club because I’m living with my in-laws. Oh happy belated birthday and in case your wondering my birthstone is a garnet but I prefer diamonds-umm what girl doesn’t!?! Ok gotta go.

    Just found your blog an am sorry you’re taking a break. You know, sorry in that oh-so-selfish-who-cares-if-you’re-tired-of-blogging kind of way.

    I’m a former Port Coquitlam/Port Moody-ite, so it’s fun to encounter someone online who has ties to home. Have a great break!


  11. Good God! This is also hilarious! I have hit blog jackpot! CHERRY CHERRY CHERRY, suckers. I will now obsessively read all of your archives. Cheerio!


  12. Hey!! I live Down by the River!!

    But we’re not cool enough for a van. And since neither “sedan down by the river” nor “jeep down by the river” has that certain je ne sais quoi we just have an apartment. Which is down by the river.


  13. Wow, we’re almost related. My maiden name is Fennell…. and I am Canadian too…. ooohhhh scary (for you, not me). Back to reading your blog now. Buh bye.


  14. Hi, there!..91f4efdf5c24723910d3b188ee7239df


  15. Hillarious and wonderful stuff. I found you googleing and i will come back again:)


  16. I found you by way of Mandajuice, and I will be back! I grew up in Coquitlam on the border of Poco and went to Highschool in Poco and most of my life did and still does revolve around Poco. It’s nice to read someone from my hometown. I am now a Victoriarite and adjusting to life on the Island.


  17. Hi there, I found you by way of cafemom and had to click on your link after reading your comment on Maressa Brown’s blog for today (Santorum calling President Obama a snob…). I view have yet to read a comment of yours that I don’t agree with. I post on thestir as TJ and only as a guest. One of these days I’ll get around to becoming a member… Hope you get this as most of the posts above are from quite a few years back. Look forward to visiting this site often and reading more of your comments on thestir.

    Another commenter visiting after viewing a comment on the Stir. Since you’re a comment whore, I figured even on a very old post, you’d be cool with getting a comment.

    I appreciate the perspective you bring with your commentary on the Stir. I can hardly bear to read the comments and so I go there very rarely. And now, I’m enjoying some of your past entries here on your blog. You should get back into the writing!
