Hi everyone, I'm Cathy.  I just joined the site today. I'm about to turn 35 in a few weeks. I'm married and have 2 daughters ages 13 and 12. I'm from NYC originally but have been in LA for about 16 years now.

My family really enjoys pets, movies, music and hiking. We've been Disney fanatics every Summer but I'm hoping my girls are getting to the age that they are ready to trade Disneyworld for European vacations.

Thanks Bmat!  We've tried to swap Orlando for Italy the past two summers but my girls haven't gone for it. Maybe next year.

Hello! Welcome to CafeMom!

Quoting hecatesdevotee:

1. How old are your kids? Do you have boys or girls? Three years and eight months. I have two girls. Ariel and Rihanna.

2. Where did you grow up and where do you live now? I grew up in Morganza, Louisiana and surrounding areas but now I live in Saint Bernard, Louisiana about 10 miles from New Orleans.

3. Where did you meet your husband / significant other? I met my fiancé on Facebook actually, but neither one of us use the social network anymore. Too much drama on that site.

4. What do you like to do when you have time to yourself? I love to do psychic readings. I am a psychic medium. I have my own business called Hecate's Cartomancy: http://hecatescartomancy.wordpress.com

5. What's on your mind today? I am trying to figure out how I can build my clientele. I actually came across this site through fate. All I can say is that the Goddess let me here. I wanted to see how much traffic my website is getting, and it's nothing to brag about. So I checked out one of my favorite sites that I admire: hecatescauldron.org and was blown away. I went to the list they used to help promote and came across this site. I was surprised but the goddess is amazing. I've already met another Pagan mom on here which is great so...

I also met my fiancé on Facebook. But nice to meet you. Maybe we can chat sometime.

1. How old are your kids? Do you have boys or girls? 

I have one beautiful girl who is 5 years old.  Then I have two soon to be step children; a boy who is 11 and a girl who is 9.

2. Where did you grow up and where do you live now?

I grew up in thebeautiful  foothills of North Carolina.  I've lived here my whole life (25 years).

3. Where did you meet your husband / significant other?

We originally started talking through Facebook.  Then we met and found that we only lived about 5 miles from each other; it was very convenient. :D

4. What do you like to do when you have time to yourself?

If only I had time by myself :)  My days are filled with working a corporate job and coming home to a house full of kids.  On the weekends my time is spent with the children and fiance.

5. What's on your mind today?

There is definate tension between myself and my new step daughter.  I'm looking for some great advice from moms and step moms on how I can make this transition as simple as I can for her, myself, the other kids and my fiance.

Hi my name is Savanah. I will be thirty in December and I am the proud mommy of my 7 year old son David and my 5 year old daughter Kaliegh. I have been separated from my husband for almost three years now and I am single-handedly working on our divorce which I started three years ago. I am a disabled vet and want to become a student but find time and finances are stretched thin. I joined because I am currently living with my parents but am the main signor on our lease as well as the main provider financially and I have no clue how to separate our current situation. My children have been home-schooled by my family up to this point and the only way I can make it on my own is to have them in school which will not happen until next year. My family have been the main care providers for my children since my deployment and firmly believe in homeschooling so I am already in their debt and when they move I will have two children with no care who are too old to go to daycare but too far behind to go to school. I hope I can find suggestions or someone else who may have navigated this complicated situation before. I love my family and do not wish to offend any of them but must insist on my family's (me and my children) independence and education. Any tips or suggestions ladies? Thanks in advance and I look forward to conversing with this awesome group!
