Hi everyone! I joined today because I recently stopped blogging after 4 years of blogging A LOT and I'm starting to realize that it was not only my writing outlet, but also my community. I had people to talk to (even if it was only about blogging stuff). I just need to find me a new community and new things that I like to talk about....I kind of lost myself and I'm looking to find myself again.

1. How old are your kids? Do you have boys or girls? I have two girls - 5 and 6 years old. They are 15 months apart and so drastically different people!

2. Where did you grow up and where do you live now? I grew up in the middle of a corn field in Illinois and now I live in Metro Atlanta. For those of you who aren't familiar with Georgia, "Metro Atlanta" is pretty much anything south of the North Georgia Mountains and North of Savannah. It's a HUGE area. I'm NW of Atlanta. :)

3. Where did you meet your husband / significant other? We worked together in Illinois in a call center for T-Mobile. We still work together, but in a very different company and doing very different things. We're all grown up now!

4. What do you like to do when you have time to yourself? This is a bit embarassing, but I like to play video games: World of Warcraft, Call of Duty Black Ops, things like that.

5. What's on your mind today? Yesterday was a very bad day. I realized that I have no real friends that I can talk to when things get tough as a mommy. Yesterday, my hubby came to my rescue and spent the day with me like we used to before kids, but we can't call off work every day just because I'm feeling overwhelmed. I need a new outlet.

Good morning Y'all! I'm originally from a very small town that even a lot of people from my home state of Mississippi haven't even heard of.... I currently live in Panama City, Florida with my DH of 10 yrs... Between the two of us there are 4 kids, 3 boys and 1 girl..... In my spare time, I enjoy sewing, crocheting, scrapbooking, reading paranormal romance and murder mysteries, among other things...
What's on your mind today? I'm looking for any other moms of ADHD kids for advice on meds, activities, and to talk about those "rough" days...
