I am hoping to make some new friends in your group.   I heard about the group through Cheryl (Mom's_ Angels1960).  Sounded like it could be fun and informative.

I live in the Central Valley, CA.  I am a SAHM now since I retired from teaching several years ago.  I am married to a mostly retired farmer and have one son who is 24 yrs. old.

Hoping to get to know and share with y'all.

G'day and welcome to 40ish.  I'm Aramanth from Australia - call me Manth, most people do.  I'm lucky enough to have been married to my best friend for the past 21 years.  He's a Mad Scientist (for real!) and I'm a SAHM to our two Beautiful Daughters (Mad Scientists need Beautiful Daughters - it's the Lore!).  Athena is 19 and a 3rd year Engineering student, while Ishtar is 18 in **10 days** and a 1st year Science student.  

No, this doesn't mean we're Empty Nesters.  Like many Australian students, the girls still live at home and commute to campus each day - not too gruesome, a half-hour train ride away which they both find is just enough time for some casual novel reading.  Most campuses here do not require students to live-in, indeed most don't have any kind of accomodation on-site.  If you can't live at home for whatever reason you get an apartment, rent a room in a share-house or boarding house, depending on what you can afford and what's available.

With the girls at University most of the week, I'm doing something I have always dreamed of and taking a creative writing course.  It's a self-paced, online course through a local college and I'm nearly finished - just battling with the Poetry unit, then the section on editing your work to go.  After that - who knows?  Maybe I'll get that novel written!
