  • Introducing myself!
    Hello! My name is Tami. I've been married for 15 years and have 2 boys (5 & 12). We live in the Seattle area.

    My hubby is a Jouneyman Painter but is beginning to pursue a career in computers.

    I am a work at home mom. I have been a Medical Transcriptionist for 6 years but hope to quit that in the next 6 months. I now have a new business that is going to surpass all our expectations and help us live healthier, safer lives, and help us get rid of the "month-to-month" paycheck worries!

    I look forward to meeting some of you!

  • Looking for new friends
    Hello all !
    I am a recent addition to the "stay-at-home" workforce. I was an administrative assistant in a high stress job. I am very into frugal living. I am married, with a grown son and 2 grandbabies.
    My husband and I decided to try to live on one income, so that I could be home for the first time ! After trying it for a few months before I stopped working, we found that it was possible. I now have time to do things that I never had time for, as well as take care of 2 elderly family members.
    I would like to meet new friends here, and share information and ideas. Looking forward to talking to you !

  • Hello everyone, my name is Linda. I am 55, married 35 years this coming April, have 2 grown children, 1 of each, and 4 wonderful grandchildren, 2 of each. I work about 50 hours a week managing a small title company of 7 ppl. The fortunate thing about my job is my best friend of 20 years works there as does my daughter and my daughter in law. I am getting to the age where I long to cut my hours back drastically so I can stay at home and play with the grandkids, dogs, puter and get back to working on crafts. We bred miniature schnauzers of which I have 3, the mother, the father, and a son from their first litter that I just couldn't let go of. All of the others my husband has made me sell. We also have 2 outside dogs and 8 outside cats. The outside cats come inside when the hubby isn't around. LOL In my spare time my favorite hobby is taking pictures and going to Ren Faires. I also enjoy camping but I have fms so that limits my time in the tent now a days. That also limits my time on the motorcycle which I dearly enjoy, too. As I said in my other post where I explained how I picked my name, I am new to this (going into forums) so if I have chatted on too much, I apologize. I look forward to meeting you all.
