I live in West Texas about ( 300 miles west of the Dallas/Ft Worth area). I teach 1st grade. I have been married to a wonderful husband for 17 years. He had a son, 32, from a previous marriage. We have an 11 year old daughter and a 7 yr. old son. Two dogs a border collie and a tea cup chih. I was just recently diagnosed in Dec 08.
OK.. here goes..
I'm 51 years old and live in N/E Indiana. I moved here 10 years ago, today!! (Wow just realized that!) I'm orginally from NJ, I lived all over central NJ. I met my husband online .. I like to tell people I bought him on eBay. Anyway, he's from IN and I moved out here to be with him. We've been married for almost 9 years. He's a wonderfully supportive man. When we met I was recovering from my last bout with Lyme Disease and he helped nurse me back to health.. so he's watched and helped with my health issues since the day we met. Between us we have 4 kids, his two daughters and one son and my one and only son. His kids all live right here in the same town as us and my son is still in NJ (whom I miss terribly). We have 4 grandkids. We love our 2 dogs, Chloe and Zeke and we have 2 birds, Cheech (parrot) and Simon (canary). In Nov. 08 I left my job as the Exec. Director of a non-profit org. due to my health issues.. now I'm looking for a part time office job. My hobbies are bird watching and photography. I love the outdoors and every season, except winter. I've lived a very full life and wouldn't change a thing... well, maybe the fibro, but then I wouldn't have met all of you wonderful people.. so there's a reason for everything.
Thanks for posting this thread LeeAnn, it helps us get to know eachother a little better.
You and I definatly have to hook up someday!! It's weird how much we have in common!!! Except, you can do all the math problems, I officially retired from doing math!!!
Oh and of course you can steal my "bought him on Ebay line".. I'll just do a quick copyright on it, you know me, I love those quotable quotes, but you're more than welcome to use it. LOL
