Another New Identity

So if you happen to follow me on Twitter, you may already know this.  It really, really pains me to admit it, but admit it I must.  I am no longer a "Yuppy". 

Some of you may argue that maybe, due to my age, I haven't been an yuppy for a while.  After all, "yuppy" does come from "young urban professional".  But I say, you are truly only as young as you feel.  Plus, I do consider myself to be young still.

But I digress.  You see, due to finances, and many other reasons, this past spring we sold our home and bought a new, less expensive one - in the (gasp) suburbs!  I know, I'm still in shock and we moved nearly 4 months ago.

Don't get me wrong, it's an amazing house with an awesome yard.  But we're back in the boonies.

We gave up a neighbourhood with schools, coffee shops, and being close to the pathway system for a bigger house and yard.  Sure, we saved money, and the Babe seems to like it, but I'm still getting used to it.

Here's the Babe seeing his new backyard for the first time:

So forgive me yet again.  I was first the "Pregnant Yuppy", then "Yuppy Mom", and now because I still feel it in my heart, I will continue to be the "Yuppy Mom", even though it's not entirely accurate.

And if you don't like it, you can:
