Would love some pen pals,

I love to write! I am 29 years old, SAHM to 2 boys. My hobbies are crafts (woodworking and painting), pen palling, surfing the net, baking, and cleaning.

I'd love to hear from anyone (females only) and everyone.

Take care,
Dawn

pen pals

Yes, as silly as it sounds......I love to clean. lol. I am totally addicted to flylady's website, and love some of her ideas. I don't know if it's as much cleaning as I love, or organizing. Am I crazy? lol

I will definately look into the postcard swap.

Thanks for the suggestion,
Dawn

I too enjoy cleaning

Hi, I would like to be included as one of your pen pals and yes I too enjoy cleanig. Im slow to get started because Im usually sooo busy, but once Im started watch out. I like the satisfaction I get from a job well done. I also enjoy cooking, gardening, reading, and I am learning how to knit. Hope to talk to you soon.

Debbie,

I am with you, I am not a "hobby" cleaner. I do love, however, to hear how others do what they do, because I am always looking for new ideas and ways to cut corners and time. I guess I am a cleaner "researcher."

What is the flylady website? I don't think I have heard of that before?

Please count me in for penpals! I would love to make a friend in the great white North.

Take care,

Sarah

cleaning

You know ladies, I manage 2 motels from front desk to laundry and everything in between. I have learned a lot of things and one of them is that not everyone is cut out to clean. Some people simple hate it and as silly as it sounds, some cant do it. You would think cleaning is a no brainer but its not.... Domestic ENGINEER is a very correct term. You would not believe the people who have never even learned to make a bed. Its amazing. Like I said I have learned quite a lot.

Hi! I, too, would like to have/be a penpal. I enjoy baking (and eating!), reading, the arts (music (piano and choir), theatre), and of course my children! I can't say I enjoy cleaning but I do get a great sense of satisfaction when it's all done - for about 15 minutes anyway, until a "hurricane" comes into the room and dumps a toybox! Oh well, you know what they say about idle hands...

What form are you thinking of for penpals? Snail mail or email?

cleaning

My biggest problem is clutter. It tends to pile up everywhere if your not careful. I cant stand clutter. It drives me crazy but thats not to say that my home is clutter free. It is really hard to keep up with work, family and fun. I try to do a little bit each day so Im not left with it ALL for one day. And sometimes its not all that easy to get your family to pitch in either. So we make do.
