Hello everyone!

LOL, that's good to know then. I don't think I'd be in too much of a hurry to visit though ;)

Hi Lori! What type of bird do you have? I have a green cheek conure that just turned 17, I've had her since college. We also have 2 dogs, a lab mix and a border collie mix, so add in the boys and you've got a very loud household!

Hi Melissa. I'm Jessica (29), married for 9 years to DH (also 29). I have a 5yo dd and a 2yo (almost 3!) ds. I work full time as an academic librarian, and I'm taking classes towards a degree in computer science.

Welcome! You have some big shoes to fill; CM Pat was probably the best CM this board has ever had, but you mix of the various work statuses will stand you in goof stead, I think :)

I'm Karen. I know my siggie says Kitty--it's a nod to the houseful of felines I keep, and my username here. I'm a single working Mom to a grown man, so I have the parenting gig all figured out now ;). (The trick is back the daughter in law in every decision--I tell you, it's foolproof :D). So yes, my son is 29, married to a lovely young woman. She has a 3 year old from her first marriage. I generally refer to him as my grandson, but around here I make sure to specify stepgrandson as there are those whose panties get in a twist if I don't.

They all live quite close by--closer than they did as I have recently downsized from a fairly large condo to a really tiny house. I know, it's all backwards, but then I had a child without getting married, so the standard path is not always my favorite :)

Oh, yeah, the ex and his wife and kids all live quite close, too. We all get along, and every few years or so take a big vacation together to DisneyWorld. We've been doing this since their older child (John's younger brother) was 2 months old--he turned 15 earlier this week, so a good long time now.

And I work night shift as a typesetter for the federal government.
