New to CafeMom and new to the group!  Three kiddos (27, 21, & 17), two grandcuties (5 & 2), and three furbabies (2 canine, 1 feline).  Bible-thumpin', people-lovin' Jesus freak (but you don't have to believe like I do to be my friend).

I have a disabling pain/fatigue syndrome that we are still trying to get diagnosed.  I spend my time doing Bible study, crocheting, surfing the Internet, and reading.  I'm happiest when spending time with my immediate and extended familly and our pets.

In my 27 1/2 years as a parent, I've experienced single parenting, married parenting, being the non-custodial parent, being the custodial parent, working outside the home, being a SAHM, having children in public school, in private school, and homeschooled.  My two boys were diagnosed with ADHD.  I've dealt with being the parent of a child who was bullied, and a child who was the bully.  

My oldest child was in the Army National Guard and served a tour in Iraq.  He's married and has given me two precious grandchildren.  My middle child is moving into management at our local Subway restaurant and is a heavy-duty online and PC gamer.  My youngest graduated from homeschool  1 1/2 years earlier than she would have graduated from public school and started Basic Cosmetology at a college where she can earn an associate's degree in applied arts.

I live an hour from my mother, but being an only child, I provide respite care when she needs to take a break from caring for her own mother (who lives with her now).

I look forward to getting to know YOU!
