about the homestead

The Olmstead Homestead consists of: a smug married couple and their cat who thinks she's a dog. After working 24/7 for a year to put on our own wedding, we are amazed at not only the huge amounts of free time we now have, but how completely incapable of being unproductive we now are. Hence, this blog.

Reed: The Husband. He will not want anything to do with this blog. Really, he doesn't even have Facebook. But he loves me so he will put up with this. He puts my crazy schemes into action, and is marvelous with a power drill. The Husband is also an exceptional and involved father, going above and beyond to take care of his family. 

Stephanie: The Wife and author of this blog. I am a lazy hippie, except when I have a Grand Idea (usually regarding home projects). Then it's crunch time and no one is allowed to rest until the project is complete. I dream of owning my own home one day in our distressingly expensive city. I stay at home with Claire and try to keep the household together. Contact me at olmstead dot stephm at gmail dot com.

Claire: our sweet little girl who has born at 32 weeks due to severe preeclampsia. Despite a heart defect and some delays, Claire Bear is kicking butt at life. She has a wacky sense of humor and an unhealthy fascination with poking Fiona in the derrière. She also looks exactly like her dad, minus all his hair. 

Fiona: The Cat Who Thinks She's A Dog. She chases her tail, plays fetch, and loves to take over the bed while sleeping. Her lack of survival instincts, namely, the fact that she falls down, rolls on her back, and exposes her belly whenever she is startled, cause her to live strictly indoors. She and Claire are buddies and snuggle together.
