Hello All

I thought I would do a little intro now that I am posting since from lurking I know about all of you but you don’t know anything about me.  I’m a divorced mom of DS who will be 12 next week and DD you will be 9 in June.  I am recently engaged to my boyfriend.  We have been together 8 years.  I am a paralegal and live in Sandy’s neck of the woods just a little further north.

Uh oh... looks like the gremlin got your post, Corinna! I'm with you... too shy for the pole! Even if they DID have a fat-girl night! Just in case you check back, I'm Daisy and all of us have been having TONS of trouble posting which I'm sure you know if you've been checking us out. I am married for 33 years, 2 daughters, 2 grandchildren, the Awesome Luke who will be 3 August 31st and the Adorable Presley who is 16 months!

How long have you been lurking on our board?

 

Hmm, I can’t say exactly but it has been a few years, When I was pregnant with my DD and after her birth I lurked on the Junebugs 2004 board and would visit other boards too so I may have been looking back then. I would say actively lurking the last 3-4 years.

What threads are your favorite?

I enjoy, what’s for dinner ( I don’t like when you guys don’t do one), (before changes) Please pay with me, ? of the day.

Do you like to cook?

I love to cook, we bought a house 2 years ago and I can’t wait to redo the kitchen, the setup is awful right now.  I have a lamp post in the counter top.  When we do change the kitchen I will have a larger stove, nothing smaller than 36” I would rather a 48” and it will be gas. My kids are slowly starting to want to learn to cook too. 

 

What's your favorite color?

Favorite color is black

Want to join my pole dancing troop?  We are headed to the Olympics once they make it an official event!

Going to have to skip the pole dancing, I’m the shy girl remember

So glad you de-lurked, Corinna - it is always great to have another voice at the table!

Hi, Corinna!

Gaye here.  The senior citizen on the board.  I'll be 66 next month.  Widowed in 2002.  I have two daughters.  Amy is 44 and Christine is 41.  Amy has two boys who will turn 16 and 9 in March.  Christine has two girls, 15 and 10.  Originally from the Northeast, we have all lived in the greater Dallas area since 1981.

I, too, have a paralegal certificate, although I never worked in a law office.  I was once the compliance officer for an insurance company.  I retired at the end of March last year, and I now volunteer at the municipal animal shelter and foster dogs for DFW Pug Rescue.
