I've read and will comply.
I'm Jess, 26, married to Wayne, 28. We have a two-year-old, Cooper. We live on the Western Slope of Colorado, but I'm originally from Colorado Springs, with a brief stint in Seattle when I was 20. I was planning on moving there permanently after I graduated college, but I met Wayne and now here we are. I'm a freelance writer for the time being because it lets me stay home with Cooper, and Wayne is a heavy-diesel mechanic.
I am addicted to pop culture, vampire fiction, and music from the 90s. I'm a vegetarian Atheist and a sucker for animals that need a home. Jillian is my online BFF, and probably knows me as well as anyone else, including my husband. Our boys were born five days apart and I am determined to eventually make a playdate happen for them, even though they live in different timezones. I am grateful for the interweb for giving me her, Perez Hilton and my liberal support system.
I like the rules! :D
I'm Alicia, married to Tom, 1 son William ( 6.5 months), we have 3 kitties - Lil Max, Bugs and JackJack. We live near Detroit, Michigan in a house we've owned for about 3 years. I work in retail, Tom does IT, William chases the cats, eats his toes and loves to be a handsome lil dude. :)
:love3: Okay you made me choke up! Did you know I was a big crybaby?

Damn we are sweet.
Read and agree.
My name is Lisa. I'm 37 with 2 kids and a husband. We live in Michigan. I grew up here and am a die-hard Michigan State Spartan. I've lived in Dallas and in Baltimore/DC. I was a third party recruiter (aka headhunter) for years and now use my free time coaching job seekers on finding employment opportunities the way recruiter's do.
I'm about as easy going as a person can get. It's almost impossible to offend me. I love honesty, no matter how ugly it is. I'm more upset by the polite who are fake than the rude who are honest. Different opinions fascinate me more than anything else. Always being around people with the same point of view or values bores me to an extent. I'm nosy as the day is long. I want to know as much about people as I can and understand where they are coming from. I can't seem to stop myself from inserting my opinion in sticky situations and trying to be the voice of reason. As much as I appreciate different opinions, I hate it when people fight because of them. Fighting makes me very uncomfortable. I never fight. NEVER. I'm incapable of pulling if off.
Most of you know, I am a true moderate. I can identify with Dems and Reps. It all depends on the issue at hand. I hate the idea of a two party system. It sometimes leaves me feeling I don't belong anywhere, when I suppose I should view it as belonging everywhere.
I read the rules and I agree to follow them.
My name is Renee (Nay) and I am in the Atlanta area, but grew up in the Detroit area. My primary job is working as a firefighter/paramedic (with a BSN) and as soon as the city pension is vested, I am done! I am currently in a Physician Asst program at Emory School of Medicine, and I hope to career transition into working part time so I can be there for the kidlets.
DH (Tom) is currently an Assistant Fire Chief for another muncipality in this area, we do not work on the same paid dept. We both belong to the same part time dept and work opposing schedules at times. He also teaches for NFA and FEMA.
I have 6 kiddys via adoption, and my main job when I get home from work is Laundry Mountain with washer/dryer on both floors going.....and answer the infamous question of "Mommy, I am hungry when are we going to eat?"
My me time is now my 20 min of silence when I get home from work, and my son announces to the household that I am in time out and to leave me alone....
Hobbies: cooking, sewing, quilting, reading, sleeping is no longer a necessary function, it is now officially a hobby with me.
I am Catholic, I come from a huge extended familywith 91 first cousins and only one sibling. My poltical leanings have always spanned both parties, I try to see things from both parties view, but usually I end up on the Democratic side.
I read and agree to the rules and guidelines, too bad you don't know at what percentage though!! muahahahaha!
My name is Deniz and I have one little boy, Jace. I am very, very, very, liberal and would love to live in a world with rainbows, gay marriage, and sunflower seeds along with peace signs as currency. I am very sarcastic and like to joke around with people. I have a crush on President Barack Obama. The end.
I have read and agree to abide by all the guidelines. :)
My name is Jessi, I am from GA. I married to Matt, and DS Sam (4/21/09) so a new mommy hear! And I am so typically the new mom!
Living in GA, especially the small town we live in, there are possibly 10% democrat/liberal? Maybe. I look forward to getting to know you all and forming some friendships with people that lean more toward my morals!
I've read and will follow the guidelines!
I'm Kim. I'm 32 years old and am from Upstate NY, however my husband and I just moved our family to Maine! We have four kiddos, Emma (8 ), Aodhan (6), Lillian (4) and Nathalie (2), and we are expecting another girl in January!
I"m a computer programmer and I now work remotely, with little company all day so the bulletin boards are a great outlet for me! I'm a practicing Catholic, however I have come to terms with those things the Church teaches that I do not agree with. I'm happy I've found a balance in my life where my faith is always there for me and provides a solid place for me to ground my beliefs...but it doesn't do my thinking for me.
I would consider myself a 'very left leaning moderate'...depending on the actual issue at hand, i could be anywhere on the scale...but for most things i would say at least a little liberal. I'm very opinionanted and argumentative...but try hard not to be rude.
On the more light-hearted side, I love to knit and want to learn how to sew/quilt! I hate cooking, but enjoy baking....and LOVE eating. :) I love watching TV but try not to let myself watch too much. My favorite shows are House, Lost, Big Bang Theory. There are a ton of others though that I watch at least semi-regularly!
I could keep rambling, but I won't bore you! Just as a warning, I make TONS of typos...some of them are ridiculous. I look back after I've posted and wondered how anyone can make sense of what I wrote sometimes. I type too fast for my brain i think, or maybe its the other way around, not sure! I fix what I can...but if something looks really bizarre...just don't mind me, i probably just wasn't paying attention.
I've read and agree.
Hi all. I'm Lana, wife to Dan and mom to 8yo DD Lillian and 5 yo Daniel. I've been a way for a bit, but I've been around here for quite some time. Not sure what to say that won't make me sound like a total snooze fest. I'll piggy back off Sandy's good idea to do the list of 10 things but maybe ammend it to be 10 things most people don't know about me.....
1. Have to start off with the fact that I've castrated a pig and collected the sperm from a stalllion and inseminated a mare with it. The worst part was that they made us wear a helmet to tease and collect the stud, so on top of the whole situation, I looked like a total dork.
2. I sing really really loud in the car and it's usually to musicals. Not only do I sing, but I do a whole performance. I'm like Mama Rose on stage, final scene, but in a mini van.
3. I have low self-esteem.
4. I love reality tv.
5. I'm incredibly indecisive. I've been known to go into The Home Store and walk around for 2 hours, picking up and putting down stuff trying to make up my mind and then leave with nothing. It's pretty bad.
6. I always get hurt in the stupidest ways. I broke my toe showing the dog how to jump over a stool by demonstrating how to do it. I broke my tooth playing lights off tag. I broke it a second time by mimicing a growling dog. And I have a scar on my lip from when I was attacked by a vicious.....rooster. Seriously.
Couldn't think of 4 more. I was going to put that I think Patrick Stewart is way sexy, but I was scared I'd get kicked off the board as an embarrassment to my political party.
Oh and I ahve to follow Kim ont he typo thing. I'm am horrible at typing and I don't have a spell check function on my browser so you'll have to live with my constant "lieks" and "hte".
