I suppose one of these pages is necessary, so here it is.  Here is something about me.

First of all, this is me:

That was a good haircut.  I should go back to it.

Anyway, my name is Abby and I have a bunch of pets.  I’ve always had pets, and I probably always will (probably?  definitely).  I grew up in a city in Massachusetts, but have since moved to the small town scene.  There really isn’t much of a scene, but a neighbor down the street has a goat.  How exciting is that!?  I want a goat.  And chickens.

So back to me.  I’m going on 27 and that is just… horrifying.  I’ve been married almost a year and we live in a house we bought together.  We both work full time so my awesome parents stop by and check on the animals every day.  I’m kind of a receptionist thingy and my husband is an electromechanical engineer.  He’s a big smarty pants sometimes – I try to make sure he gets knocked down a peg every now and then.

I keep a vintage shop on Etsy and hope to start selling hand made stuff soon, too!  Some day I’d like to work with my hands full-time, maybe refinishing furniture and the like.  It sounds like a dream.  We also attempt to grow plants.  Maybe I could make soaps, too?  Perhaps.  I mean anything’s possible.  I love to cook, but I’m never home early enough to make dinner.  Basically I work a lot and then crash when I get home.  The life of the 20-something.

Animals mean a lot to me – they always have.  All the furry ones are rescues of some sort.  Ed came from a hoarder, Fry (RIP) came from a dude in Rhode Island who drove him up to me and gave him away for free – he couldn’t wait to get rid of the little terror, the twins are from a shelter in New Jersey (Cause4Paws) and Zoso was a Craigslist dog with a family that didn’t want him any more.  And he wasn’t particularly sad to see them go.  This is a long and complicated way of saying I really support animal shelters and rescues that do a lot of thankless work to make sure that animals are kept safe and healthy for as long as possible.  I really empathize with the kill shelters out there since they do so much hard work, only to see animals die day after day.  I can’t even imagine what the workers and volunteers at those shelters go through.

So that’s something about me.
