Hi, I'm a single mom of 4 - oldest boy (16), daughter (14), daughter (11), daughter (7) and we live with my mother who works full time like I do. I was born and raised in San Diego, CA and now live in Vancouver, WA just north across the Columbia River from Portland, OR. I work for a boutique law firm as an Admin Asst and enjoy it. Currently trying to figure out how to balance "me" time inside my day - having a hard time and feeling worn out because of it. Not dating, no time - lol! Looking forward to helpful hints :-)

Hi my names Melissa. I have a 18 month old girl, Avery, and a 5 yr old step daughter, Presley. I grew up in a small town in Texas where I met my husband of 4 yrs and we'll be moving to Grand Forks, ND in February. I usually like cleaning or editing videos and pictures, and blogging when it's nap time.

Welcome! I hope you figure out how to get time for yourself.  Maybe you could pay your son to watch the other children once a week so you can get some time.

Hi, Melissa! Welcome to CafeMom! This is quite a move for you from a warm state to one with a very cold winter?

Welcome to CafeMom Melissa,
Any special reason you decided to move there?
Nice to meet you :)

Welcome to cafemom. It is so hard to find that me time for all of us! All I can say is you have to carve some out for yourself, even if it's just sipping a nice drink in a bubble bath, or having a mani/pedi. Good luck to you. (btw, love the area you live in!)

 Hi and welcome! I have a 14yo daughter, too, and a 13yo daughter, and we're in AL. How long have you been single?

 Welcome, Melissa! I love your daughters' names. :) I have two girls, too, but mine are older, 13 and 14 now. Are you excited about the move to ND?
