February Roll Call....

Yeh, I know, it's not quite February ... but I am so-o-o ready for January to be done!

Tell us who you are, where you are (generalitites will do!!), what name we should call you by and anything else you'd like to share, plez!

So many of the Ladybugs have scattered since the latest changes here at iVillage, but I would love to build this little Friendship Garden of ours back up again.

I'll start...

My name is Katie but you'll most often see me sign myself as Kt.   I am a lazy typist!  I live in the middle of the bottom third of the Michigan mitten, where it has been bitter cold of late. Our temp today is at about 7º and it is blowing 20-25mph winds! I'm staying inside!! 

I have two grown children and several step-grandkids, and at least 4 great-grand babies.  I have lost touch with many of the step-grandkids as they have moved away over the years. I live with two purr-babies; one, Miss Molly, is an Egyptian Mau (brownish, spotted and short haired) and the other, Georgie, is a Main Coon (orange & white and long haired). Neither of them are pure breeds, but they come close in looks!! Both are rescue cats. Miss Molly from the Humane Society and Grorgie from my back yard after he was dumped two winters ago. Both are talkers and snugglers!

My plans for February?  Several Victorian Day meetings (a re-enactment group); a VFW Ladies Auxiliary meeting; a Red Hat get-together; and probably a family (self adopted!) gathering to celebrate the birthdays from the past couple of months when it was too cold and too busy with other things to hold!

Okay....your turn!

Hi KT, it is almost like I have never been here.....I know it has been a long time. But then....

I am Janet from Nebraska, 5 kids, 15 grands and 4 great grands. Been married to the same man and this will be 53 tears in Nov.

I make jewelry, I have always been interested in crafts. I am a pretty good cook, but don't do much of anything any more...Old and lazy....

We spend our summers about 100 miles away in Yankton SD. We have a camper up there...it is really nice. Then we come back here to freeze....lol

Del retired in 2005 so we just do what we want to do and try to get out of the have to dos.....lol....

Hey, Janet, good to see your smiling face here in the Garden!    I sure do miss the "old times" we had here.  Hoping that some day the 'fun' will return to our special place here at iVillage!  Thanx for posting.  Hugzzzz.....

Hi I am Wren from NY and I have 2 kids and a hubby who is still working as a graveyard night clerk.. my daughter just got her Rn and is working at the local hospital my son 19 soon is in his first year of college. I do cook and bake * I hike and bike and do a lot of walking but at this moment in time I am not walking I injured my archillian tendon while square dancing in Sept.. so for me I am out of that and in therapy I was working as a deli assistant at the local gas station until Nov when I up and quit on them.. due to the practice of re dating I won't and for that I up and quit..

Hi, Wren.  Good to see your post!!   OMG, are your kids all grown up now?!  When we first met they were both so much younger!  What is with these kids of ours aging beyond us?!!!   I cannot believe my "baby" will turn 50 this summer.   Hope you are surviving this nasty winter we have been having.  The folks out your way usually have much more of this nasty stuff than we do....but maybe not this year!  I am so-o-o-o ready for spring to arrive!

Hi Kt, as you know I've been away for the past few months taking care of a sick husband.  Glad to be home again and back in the swing in things.

Good to be here, too!!!

Glad to have you back home in Delaware and back here in the Garden, Shari.  Praying that you and your DH have a lot of good years together still. So many of our Ladybugs are dealing with some 'heavy stuff' in their lives lately.

I am with you on the spring I can't wait this winter has been terrible. My kids well are 18 and 24 but will be one year older The 24 just got her Rn and is finally working at a local hospital and the boy is into computer he is in college at a local community college Both are very good kids.. I am still married and we dance are in 3 clubs of square dancers.. Since Sept I have a tendon issue in the ankle so my activity is not to good... I was working at a local deli until the lady ate my head off and I just couldn't handle the mouth of being so rude in public. OH Kt its not the same in iV anymore and I do miss it so much the wild and fun seem to have vanished.. I still come and read a lot in here and I do post to a few still... My kids are still at home with us and for me that is wonderful. I don't worry so much beside the 18 yr old doesn't have his license yet.. so I am the taxi for his college.. Well Spring can get here at anytime now... YOU all have a great week ... .
