Tell me about yourself

  1. I have a wonderful dh 36 y/o. Two little boys 4 y/o and 2 y/o. My boys are both getting potty trained. I tell you what my youngest just started and is doing awesome. My eldest took 2 years to potty train...and he's still not liking popping in the toilet.

    Oh yeah I'm 31 y/o.

    My boy's are very entertaining!!!

    Dh loves to fish.

    I love the Internet, reading, traveling and working out. I work on a telemtry floor. Most days I love my job.

    I came up with the name "askater" because I figured skated for 12-13 years while growing up.

    We seem to share ages and interests. I am 31, enjoy exercising, reading, surfing the net and taking ballroom dancing with hubby. We've been married almost 9 years, no kids. Family are all out of state, so we spend a lot of our off-time visiting them. I love my job .

    I believe I mentioned this before, I have 9 sisters and seven brothers, I am the youngest, and my screen name is my one sisters name who wanted to be a nurse, so I use it to honor her.:kiss

    Hi! I am a 45 years old LTC nurse disabled from back problems, hubby is 51 years old and disabled. We don't let it get us down too bad. We have two furbabies, dogs, named Madchen and Junge. They act like they are humans. They don't ask to use the car, but they sass us. Worked for 25 years as a nurse and loved every moment of it. Am having a hard time adjusting to not being able to work and knowing that I will never be able to work again. Love to use the computer and surf the internet. That is what we do for entertainment. Love this board. Nice to meet everyone.:roll

    I am a 19 (20 in 11 days) year old Student Nurse in my second year, and I am English. I don't have any children or a b/friend, I don't really have the time!

    As well as uni and my placement hours, I work in a hotel, and for a nursing agency as an AN and am currently in the process of applying to work on the Bank.

    I love reading, I am addicted to the Harry Potter books, but enjoy 'grown up' books such as the Handmaids tale. I spend my free time, on the internet, although more when I am trying to avoid my essays!

    I am 34, married with 3 kids, 16, 13, and 3 y/o. I'll be graduating from an ADN program in just a few short weeks! I enjoy reading (for pleasure, not text style!), internet, and when I can find the time and the money, redecorating the home we bought 2 years ago. I used to love going out dancing, but haven't been able to find the time with school and kids.

    Rusty, congrats on staying smoke free! I've often wondered how you were doing! I tried, but went back. Hopefully when I'm done with school I'll find the will power to do it again.

    I'm 32 y/o (will turn 33 at the end of May) & married for 2.5 yrs to a handsome 35 y/o man. I have one daughter from a previous relationship who is 13.5 y/o and a honors student/saxophone player in middle school. I also have 3 cats, Rascal, Basil & Charlie...all striped tabbys.

    I work for my cousin at his restaurant equipment shop currently and I just started school...taking prereq's this quarter & will take the pre-admission test this summer. I've already got a bachelor degree in psychology (grad back in '94).

    I love to read, surf the internet, cook, bake, sketch, and window shop. I also enjoy exercising, since I started weight watchers this past January and have shed enough weight (30+ lbs) that I can actually enjoy exercising!

    I live in Southwestern Ohio, near Dayton. Was born & raised here. Lived out in Southern California, near Los Angeles, between 1998-2001...and I definately like it better here in the midwest!
