    Hi, I’m nan, new and not too good with computers but I really like this site.
    age: I beat you all! I’m 56. (Thus the granny icon)

    spouse’s age: more

    occupation: I have been a home schooling mom for 19 or 20 yrs but this fall my youngest son is going to traditional school and I have a part time gainful employment job.

    Children: son 33
    son 30
    daughter 24 married July 04
    ” (mother to my new granddaughter born Oct 18)
    son 19
    son 15

    Dream job: well I actually never dreamed of doing what I’m doing now but it is such a blessing from God. After 30 years at home and only one year of college I figured Wall Mart greeter might be all I could get and I really didn’t want to be on my feet all day. This job just fell in my lap when I mentioned to a fellow camper on the Memorial camp out that I was going to start looking for work. She said her brother was hiring people to copy public court records which he sells to a credit reporting agency. I can work as little or as much as I can (during regular court hours) and I could take off for two weeks to travel to my granddaughters “coming out” event. The money is more than minimum and should cover or nearly cover the tuition each year. Thanks Be To God.

    favorite time of year: Fall, definitely

    favorite holiday: that’s harder. I’m going to say tie between Christmas(which we celebrate for 12 days) and Easter Week.

    birthday June 24 (like Johanna!)

    anniversary: Aug 28

    I’m usually a morning person.

    Favorite family activities: walking, biking, board and card games, and now that everybody CAN BE (I don’t mean always ARE) polite, dinners and conversation that stretches when we have time.

    When I’m alone I read, eat, or sleep. But I might be starting to add computer time.

    Biggest fear: I hate snakes. I fear for my childrens final salvation, but not with as much anxiety as I used to; you do have to trust God at some point to love them more than you do and He has more power at His disposal.

    College: I had one year of college and have taken a night course here and there. My lack of a degree has always made me feel tentative about teaching my children through 12 th grade, but I did it anyway.

    Dream travel destinations: Always have wanted to go to Alaska.( I’m suprised by how many others here have included that) More recently I added a wish to see the Holy Land, Greece and Rome.

    I would add that I smile a lot, love the Church, and am a member of a charismatic and ecumenical group which has blessed me and my family, enriches my prayer life and gives me lots of challenges to grow in holiness till Jesus comes or I get called to HIm.

    Posted on the great Feast of Christ the King!

    well I previewed this and the granny face doesn’t show but there is a face in the baby’s birthday Oh, well. I’m open to learning what went wrong there.

    I like this idea…so I’m adding my two cents worth.

    name: Mindy

    age: 24

    spouse’s age: 31

    your occupation: Receptionist at a Homeless Shelter

    spouse’s occupation: Foster Care Program Manager

    age of children: 8 and 12 (both foster children, none biological)

    your dream job: Working with books, but only if the hours would work better with my home schedule. I’ve worked in a bookstore for the last 2 years, and with a new family the hours didn’t work so much, and I had been promised things that were never given. So it was time to move on.

    worst job you ever had: Working at a drive-in during high school

    favorite time of year: Summer, I hate being cold.

    favorite holiday: Christmas, because of the happiness that seems to be everywhere.

    birthday: May 7

    anniversary: April 6

    are you a morning or night person? Night, but I can get up at 7 and be ok most days. Earlier than that is too hard.

    what is your least favorite aspect of your current occupation? I’ve only been here a month, so I am not sure.

    favorite activity with your family? just about anything we do where no one is arguing or we all enjoy being together.

    favorite activity when you have ‘alone time’? Alone time? That only occurs when I’m in the car running errands before the kids get out of school.

    what is your greatest fear? Not being loved

    what is your nervous habit? (biting fingernails, fidgeting, tapping your foot…) I fidget, and can’t stay still for more than a few seconds, I have to move something, even if it’s my toes.

    did you go to college? where? Walla Walla College for 2 years

    if you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? (pretending that safety is not an issue) Well, if money also wasn’t an issue…Europe and Egypt. I really want to see some of the places in the UK, Germany, and Italy for sure, and I really want to see the pyramids and other structures from Ancient Egypt.
