I just joined and wanted to introduce myself. I'm a mom of 5 ages 26, 23, 18, 16 and 14. I'm also raising my grandson who is 3. My husband and I have been married for 28 years. I work at an elementary school as the registrar, attendance and records secretary. I have a BS in Human Resources Management. I took a job that is not related at all to my degree but I love my job. :)

I have an embroidery business that I need to get off the ground. Three of my five kids live at home. My oldest has his own place about 20 minutes away. The little guy's mom is the 23- year- old. She doesn't live with us and that is a story all in itself. He is the cutest thing ever but at 47 I am about too old for this. I'm so grateful for the ones at home who always pitch in to help with him. It would be nice if they could pitch in with the dishes lol. 

I have more hobbies than I can list - I love anything crafty. I have ADHD so I rarely sit still or do nothing. As a result I have acquired lots of hobbies to keep me busy. My life is never boring but God blessed me with the perfect husband for me as well as really good friends. 

I like most things but I hate drama! This is my escape from the drama in my life and I've got plenty.  I would rather laugh than cry so no sad movies or books if I can avoid it. 

I think I've said plenty so you should know me now. ;)

G'day Dianna and welcome.  I'm Aramanth from Australia - call me Manth, most people do.  DH and I have been married for 20 years and we have 2 amazing daughters aged 17 (18 as of next week!) and 16.  No grands yet and there had better not be for a while - my girls have big dreams and don't need to complicate matters with babies at this young age.

Hi Dianna.  Sounds like you are pretty busy, but hey isn't that better than being still?  It's about time for me to get off of this lap top today cause I'm felling "wasted".  Have a great day!
