Here's the thing...

I'm getting really sick of my pseudo-anonymity here in the blogland.  Every time I talk about the husband, I type in his real name accidentally before deleting and replacing it with Mr. Smith.  Depending on how many times I type/delete/retype, I estimate that I am losing approximately 34 seconds a day changing names.

That is an extra 34 seconds that I could be...reading your blogs!  Thinking up witty comments!  Or...changing lives of high school students...you know, "working!"  

So.  I'm finished with anonymity.  

Allow me to introduce myself.  I'm Shaina.  My husband is Matt.  Our dog is Oscar...who I haven't protected with a pseudonym, so...you already know that.

Nice to meet you.

Finally. I was getting really tired of calling you Mrs. Smith...it sounds far too matronly. :)

Nice to meet you too. I don't think with a name like smith you will get too many stalkers. I have googled myself and my husband with our glorious boring last name and we are still hidden. Hope your 34 seconds give you everything you have ever wanted! = )

I've been considering making the same move. Especially since in my case, our first names are more anonymous than our last. Way to make the plunge!

I already knew that :) you go girl!

Nice to meet you! I wanted to start using anonymous names, but then got to lazy and just stuck with our first names.... :-) Haha

Aren't you brave? Hi Matt & Shaina.

I've toyed with abandoning my anonymity, but I'm having too much fun with it for now. I may just follow you eventually, though.

PS - Best of luck with Oscar; hope everything turns out ok!

i already knew your name was shaina - but that's 'cause we're blog twins...duh. :) i've been thinking the same thing. jenn and rob could not be more common names. yet i call him "my husband" all the time. I think at the beginning i even used our family last names and then decided to go all incognito. people will figure out who you are in the end anyhow :)
