My Intro

Thu, 04-29-2004 - 3:00pm

I was going to just lurk around until August, but since I was welcomed so nicely by the cl's, I thought I would jump on in and introduce myself.


My name is Jo Anna and I have a 9 year old dd, Samantha.

Thanks for posting your wonderful intro! Samantha sounds like such a fun and intersting kid!


Since this is turning into an intro thread, I'll post more about me, too:


I am Janet, mom of Sam and Rachel, who are 11yo twins in 6th grade. We live (along with my dh) in suburban Philadelphia. I WOH as a software engineer, part-time. I feel like I have the best of both worlds - a terrific job, and I'm home to meet the school bus every day! I had been scrapbooking regularly for 2+ years, but haven't touched them in a while :-( Maybe your post will inspire me, like Sherrie is hoping to be inspired with her cross-stitching, LOL! I'll have to check out your pictures. I have done some embroidery, but then started mostly needlepointing. The last project I did was for Sam and Rachel's nursery, while I was on bedrest during my pregnancy! The only "hobbies" I make time for now are reading and exercising. I'm more regular with the first than the second ;-)


I've been posting on PS for too many years to remember, LOL! I know it was before it was part of iVillage. I've been a CL since '99, starting with Parents of 1st and 2nd graders, as it was called back then. I've been CL of the Jewish Family Life board for a few years also.


Rachel and Sam are both good students. They're friends (I always get that question ;-), but VERY different from each other. Rachel loves basketball and softball, and plays the piano (although she want to drop that). Sam plays the saxaphone in the school band. He is an avid reader, but his first love is TV and video games! (We limit those, or he'd be a zombie ;-)


So glad you've joined us.

Janet
