Hi Mamas,
I blogged over on hipMama for a while, but I got tired of the cliques and catfighting, so here I am. I'm a single mom of two teenaged girls, I'm in a metal band (Placenta) and I'm in a couple of chapters of the new book "My Mother Wears Combat Boots" by Jessica Mills.
I live in Oakland, CA and I run a successful housecleaning service.
Rock on.

I used to post on the hip mama forums back in the dark ages (i.e. about 7-8 years ago).
