Girly Man

I'll admit I'm kind of girly. I like girly movies and girly music. Former students have picked up on this fact and have poked fun extensively.

This probably originates from the fact that I was the only boy growing up and have five younger sisters. I can't tell you how many times I've seen Dirty Dancing, Adventures in Babysitting, Grease etc. As you can tell from my teaching blog my music tastes run the gamet but usually settle on folky/girly tunes. I can't help it. I have been surrounded by girls my whole life.

I'm not sure how I ended up married to a girl that has four brothers. My wife is just as tough as her brothers. She could beat the two younger ones in an arm wrestle until they were dang near in college. The first time I actually remember noticing my wife was when I saw her in a fight at the local gas station with two other girls. It's really kind of funny hanging out at my wifes family dinners while they are talking guns, trucks, fights they've been in. My boy told me the other day that when we move to Canada we should get one of mom's brothers to show us how to hunt. He didn't even ask if I knew how to hunt. ha.

Why the self deprecating admission? I've spent the past couple of nights browsing the internet for blogs similiar to what I'd like The Simple Farm blog to be like and it seems like 99% of the bloggers are women. The terrible thing is I like reading all the girly posts and comments. I wish I didn't and I hope that none of my male friends read this post as I'm sure I'll never hear the end of it.

Anyways, I've added a few blogs that I like at the bottom of the home page and they are listed here as well.

http://thepioneerwoman.com/
http://coalcreekfarm.com/ - tell me you don't like this lady dancing in her kitchen in front of her kids.

If anyone has any other blogs I should check out please send me the link.

Even if they happen to be a little girly.
