Getting to know one another

There are a lot of new people who have joined Family Corner recently and it has been fun meeting you!

Tell us some things about you and some fun things about yourself!
It takes time to build up friendships, just like in real life!
So, everyone take a turn, the "oldies" and the more recent newbies!!

I will start!

I am sensitive and sentimental.
I can spend hours in Barnes And Noble.
I hate telephones.
I love and miss my best friend, Eileen.
I grew up in Tacoma, Wa.
I am addicted to the show "Starting Over."
My favorite childhood memory is Camp Wakoma.
Being on the train is my favorite place to be.
I go camping two or three times a year.
I go on a spiritual retreat once a year.
I have very eclectic tastes in music...........60s and 70s rock; non twangy country; zydeco; Harry Chapin; Banshees in the Kitchen; christian; blues....
I am very shy but I want to sing karaoke and skinny dip someday!
My favorite book is "A Walk Across America. "
I was not blessed with children.
If I could eat Taco Bell every single day, I would.
I can fall asleep just about anywhere.
We live in a very tiny house with lots and lots of stuff.
I know all the lyrics to the Sugar Hill Gang's, Rappers Delight!
I have lived in eight states.
I have seen Elton John in concert.
I love magazines, movies, reading and Family Corner!!

Who wants to go next??

hugs, train

Doesn't sound so boring to me!!!

OK, here goes, this is FUN...

I have lovely children...

I love walks on the beach and open fires and candlelight...

Mmm, the smell of freshly mown grass reminds me of school sports days. I would sit in English and watch the school caretaker mow the grass ready for me to sprint my socks off!

I can sit for hours and plan all the things I'm going to do that day and do NONE of them! I'm very good at planning!

I set myself deadlines such as, "I'll only post one more message and then that's it for today..." then, several hours later I wonder why I'm so cold I can't move! There's no heating in here!

Then I have to have a bath to warm me up!

I'm good at "wasting" time!

I'm considering speed-dating...

I could eat a hot chicken in one sitting...

I have good friends...

Sometimes I panic when I think I'm halfway through my life...

I can't bear rude people and sloppy service...

I'm a good cook but I hate clearing up after myself...

My bedroom is a disgrace...

I'd like to be more spiritual...

I did ballet for 20 years...

I'd like to be French!

I love bread and dripping...

I have a tendency to go on and on...

Thanks, Train, glad to make you laugh! By the way, I forgot to say I do Tai Chi, so that's where I'm off now!

I can't wait to read other members' posts...

Love and hugs xxx

I want to get to know you all better! This is fun train, thanks!

I like to eat bread crusts, even the ends of loaves.

I like to garden in the rain.

I like to be home with my family the most, that is the best vacation for me.

I want to travel the world with my family, too, though.

I am made up of all these conflicting desires and usually end up doing them too. Variety is the spice of life for me.

Planning is a joy. Doing is not until I get started and then it is fun.

I am 5 foot 5 and I don't look as heavy as I am so losing weight is not encouraging bec everyone keeps saying, Oh You don't NEED to lose anymore! Tell that to my scale and my doctor and my heart.

I like summer least, it's the heat and humidity.

I love the west with it's arid air.

I am a voracious reader.

God is important to me. Otherwise I would be deflated and sad.

Italian and German foods are my faves
Don't like Celery but eat it when have to
I like things on Lifetime Channel

Well I'll try this....

I love summer time. Like to get out in yard with kids, mow the lawn and work in the flower beds.

I love Mexican and Italian food.

I live in a small house of a family of 5.

I also LOVE my FROGS!! LOL

I like sitting on the front porch in the warm mornings with my cup of coffee before the kids wake up.

I'd love to go to a Billy Currington concert sometimes.
Take my kids to Walt Disney World.
And then one day go on a Carribiaen Cruise. ( Yeh Right)

I have only lived in 3 states.

I need to excercise more but just can't get away from the computer. LOL!!! I"m very addicitive.

My life too is boring..

Let's see....

I have two wonderful kids: dd almost 8 & ds 2

I live in a tiny apartment with the kids, my dh, & 2 cats (it isn't really tiny, it just seems that way cuz all of the stuff)

I homeschool my kids

I'm still trying to lose the weight I gained when pg with my youngest

I'm addicted to books-not just reading them, but buying, too (we have 5 overfilled bookcases)

I'm terrified of spiders

I'd love to travel the world with my dh & the kids

I adore frogs & will be getting some as soon as we get a house, along with a dog & possibly a snake

I always have an open can of Diet Mt Dew, but can't stand any other diet soda

I can't deal with stupidity or laziness, but can deal with ignorance

I'm a very organized packrat

I'm shy, but can be very outgoing if I'm comfortable

I have sung karaoke & gone skinny dipping

I love to cook

I have lived in 2 cities in the same state, but attended 7 schools by the time I graduated highschool

I love camping & fishing, but haven't done either for years

I wouldn't say my life is boring, but there isn't a lot of variety in day to day life
