I've been thinking for some time about making this blog more anonymous and have finally decided to go ahead and do the work. Effective immediately, I will be going back and changing the girls names and my husband's name.
In honor of one of my very favorite families in children's literature, my family will now be known at the Quimby family. I will remain Thrift Store Mama, my husband will here fore be known as Mr. Quimby (or Mr. Q for short). My eldest daughter will be Beezus and my younger daughter will be Ramona. I am able to make this segue because Mrs. Quimby, given her abundance of common sense, was most likely a thrifty person. I'm sure there is some evidence that I could find that would substantiate this (particularly when Mr. Quimby lost his job) but you'll just have to take my word for it that it's a logical segue.
I'm gaining some new readers (yay!!!) and think that I may want to write about some more senisitive topics, but do not want to restrict access to my blog.
