Good thread, Missy!
I'm a SAHM with 3 kids (2 boys - 17 and 15 and 1 girl - 12). We have two cats, Gigi and Shadow, Ricky our Hav who is 8 mths. old and #2 Hav on the way at 7 1/2 mths. I was a pastel artist, painting with dry pastels, exhibiting and selling my work. Due to a busy family life and health problems, I stopped painting, but then got into a bit of computer graphic art. I've left that because sitting at the computer too long isn't good for my neck/shoulders and back.
I've done rubberstamping and card-making and I started scrapbooking a year ago and love it!! Guess I have to be doing something creative! lol
I haven't done any s/booking since the fall because I got very busy raising our new pup, and we reorganized the garage that I was/am using as my studio - still lots to do in there, but when it's all done I'll send pics. I am on the way to recovering from back/sciatica problems that have plagued me for years so am looking forward to doing more with Ricky and the new guy. I'd love to attend obedience/agility classes!
I, too, am a soccer mom of one of our boys, Alex the oldest. He's been in regional competitive soccer since he was 10, playing since he was 6. At 17 this year, he says this might be the last season, so we'll see. We love it!! Our plan is to attend the games with our pooches which should be fun.
I am perfectly bilingual which is pretty much necessary in this very French province, Quebec, and am married to an Italian. Our kids speak French a lot, as well as English so we're often gabbing in a mix of both languages. We have a huge family, esp. on my side, so gatherings are loud, food is plentiful and there is a lot of fun.
O.k....... now I'm just rambling........
