Hi! I'm Carrie, 37, from Central Iowa. I was born in Columbus Ohio, moved to my mother's

home stomping grounds of Clarksville Tennessee, and ended up in Iowa. Tennessee will always

be "home" to me, but DH is a farmer so guess where I'll live for the rest of my life?!!! We've

been married for 17 years.

We have a 14 y/o daughter who is studying for her driver's permit (watch out!); a 12 y/o son

who loves school but don't ask him to study; and an almost 9 y/o daughter (her birthday is

Christmas day) who loves to give me hugs and kisses.

We live on a farm, so we have oodles of farm cats, some rabbits, chickens, and a border

collie. We also have a one year old Yorkie named Murphy.

I work as an administrative assistant and treasurer for the church I am a member of. I

basically live at church.

I don't have time for hobbies as we're always carpooling the kids from one thing to the next.

However, when I get my life back I will start writing again. I love to write.

I have been here at the KT since the very beginning, but I don't post a whole lot anymore

because of lack of time, but I sure do love this place!

My name is Kevin. I live in Kingston Ontario, on the shores of beautiful Lake Ontario. I am an

ordained minister with the United Church of Canada and serve at a small church (30-50 on a

Sunday morning).

I share my life with a wonderful and understanding partner, Robert. We often joke about his

problems being the "preachers wife"!!!

No kids, no pets, only houseplants that will soon be going to that great compost pile in the

sky. (No green thumbs at my house)

I'm not sure what I have to bring to the Kitchen Table. I always get asked to say Grace when

I visit (occupational hazzard), so I will thank you for your welcome and wish everyone well.

Hi all,

Figured this was just as good a time as any to finally come out from behind that curtain..Been

lurking way to long now, snuck in once but no one saw me so now I will make it official.

My name is Cindy, I am 45 years old and I live in the Windy City. Married 3 years and have

3 children, 21,19,18. I own my own business and work from home at night and have a part time

job during the day to keep me out of trouble. I have 2 furbabies, Snickers and Ed. Christmas

is my most favorite time of the year. I love to craft, my specialty is decorative painting and

floral designs. I feel like I know most of you already, have shared tears of joy and laughter

this last year with you, but now I need to sit at the real table so I get a piece of that

cheesecake and maybe a nudge from Pugsly....

HI...I'm Christina

27, new mother of an 8 month old boy

Married, 4 years (been together for 8)

grew up in South Jersey, now living in Maryland for the past ?...6 years.

Discovered "thathomesite" after seeing it mentioned on the HGTV Decorating board a few

times. I started out with the marriage forum, them moved on the pregnancy and then to

parents and parents of infants. I've been visiting those (parenting) boards religiously for a

long time now, and only recently branched out - and I am sooo glad I did. I lost my mother to

cancer 8 months ago (day after DS was born) and the only 2 friends I have with kids live

FAR away and all the rest work (I'm a SAHM)...Therefore this site is my only gaurunteed

adult conversation each day (other than DH - who often works late) But even if I was still

working I'd be here, I love to talk (and listen) so this is just great. My only gripe about this

site(KT) - there is soo much activity here that I can't keep up (I think I am like the 50th

something person to post under this thread - is anyone really reading this ?) baby woke, dogs

gotta go out

Bye for now

Diana in Wisconsin, here!

Live on a small farm in southern Wisconsin. Raise chickens (for eggs) have a 1/4 acre garden

that feeds us most of the year, and grow flowers to sell and eat (fancy-schmancy restaurants

use them) and sell raspberries too in late summer.

40(and still not used to it yet!) married 5 years to DH, after a 3 year "test-drive", who is a

Microsoft Engineer, handsome, funny, hardworking, etc.

Sonny, 13, who came with the marriage (he's been "mine" since he was 3) is a typical

teen...into music, the computer, videos, skiing, and avoiding work of any kind!

Furbabies are: Cinder, 8, Black Lab. Murphy, 4, Black Lab. Tim, 15, mutt cat. Sydney, 13,

mutt cat. Bob, age unknown, lives in the barn and keeps things under control out there!

I work part time for the Seed Savers Garden Store, where I am a staff gardener. They

actually PAY me to talk with people all day long about gardening, seeds, heirloom veggies, etc.

Still can't believe my luck! The rest of the time I work from home, selling books on the

WWW, (I'll post my URL at another time), and workin' my butt off to keep up with the

messes that DH and Sonny leave in their wakes!

My hobbies are: The KT, my pets, my garden, reading and crochet. I don't watch much TV,

aside from The Weather Channel (addicted) and gardening shows on HGTV!

That's all folks!

Guess I'm one of the oldies at the KT. I've been here about two months later than the KT

first began. I'm not sure if that's 3 years or what? I've seen a lot of people leave and I'm

not sure where they all went or why?

I guess I'm also a loner because my friends and I move on to new and different things. My

hobbies are counted cross stitch although my eyes are having difficulties lately seeing those

small holes. Guess that's what happens when you turn 50! Yep, it's hard for me to believe. I

never had any children so it's hard to believe that I could have children who could be in their

30s. I do have 3 nieces 21, 13, and 11. A nephew who is 19. We all live in the same vicinity.

Brother and sis are about 20 minutes from me. My parents live 5 minutes from me when not in

AZ. Residing at my house is my DH of 13 years. Two furbabys Kelly and Maxie 10 and 8. I'm

out of a job right now but work really hard at home keeping up the house and doing the jobs

hubby doesn't have time for. He works 3rd shift as a printer. When you take your pictures

with Fuji or Kodak film think of him. He prints the material on the canisters they come in.

That's All For Now!

Married, to husband # 2. I have 2 daughters a son. Each have 2 children so that makes 6

grandkids. I have a great-grandson, just 2months old. He is a darling, of course!!

We have been retired for 20 years. We used to spend the winters in AZ. It was so much fun

to see some of our great country. We wanted to see more, but circumstances changed quickly.

I enjoy gardening, both flower and vegetable. I really like to quilt, that is usually my winter

project. Right now I am embroidering a set of dish towels for a gift. I also like to read, and

so does DH. Our TV isn't used much.

I don't do much posting at the KT. I read the posts as often as I can. You are all such a

friendly group of women

and so caring. My favorite flavor......Chocklit.

My name is Tally and I've been married to Mr. Tally for 12 years with no kids by choice, but

care for 9 rescued special-needs cats and my wonderful mentee Lindsay, whom I've been

working with for going on 4 1/2 years. Lindsay is a gifted child in a very sad social and

emotional situation who gets bored easily and is at risk for dropping out of school and/or

getting involved with kids (read:gangs) who are more her intellectual peers but much older

and more mature than she is ready to handle. (Her brother went down this path and is

currently a guest of the state for a gang related armed robbery after several bouts in

juvenille detention - father died when she was 7) Her mom and I work together to help keep

her on track and stimulated in her school environment and encourage after school activities.

I'm just now beginning to deal with the BOYS issue and it's anyone's guess what's she's going

to ask or say these days. I also get permission ocasionally to bring her to work so she can see

what I do for a living and get involved in the work environment and people interactions.

I'm a VP of Finance for a motion picture studio in Hollywood, Undergrad degrees in Music

and Nursing, Master's degree in Business Administration and am a member of Mensa. I had 2

other careers before this one - a nurse and med student dropout and then several years as a

retail fashion & accessory buyer.

Special interests include feline health & behavior, playing the Celtic Harp and gardening -

especially hybrid teas and container gardening. I'm also on e-mail lists for Lupus support (my

sister in law is a victim of Lupus), Feline Immunodeficiency Virus support (Feline AIDS &

Chronic Feline Herpes owners) and parents and mentors of gifted children who share ideas

and support for handling special situations related to these kids.'s all folks! Come visit our website for pictures and more info....

Hi there. Well, it seems that there are a lot of Barbara's but I am the one in Wyoming.

I am 26.

Married for four years.

A going crazy SAHM to two beautiful little girls ages 2-1/2 and 9 mos.

Born on the east coast, spent most of my life in IN, couple years in WA and now in WY for

the last almost two years.

Spent three years married to the military and am so glad my husband decided to get out.

My husband is a hunter so we will probably never leave Wyoming. That is okay but I would

really love to move out of town.

I guess I'm kind of boring. I do have hobbies but haven't seen much of them in the last couple

of years. I love to read christian fiction mostly.

I am so glad I found the KT. I am very far from family and don't have many socializing

friends so I get a bit lonely at times. Coming to the KT is my adult time.

Thank you so much for being such a great group of people.
