Hello Queen Ima and All The Others!

March 16th, 2008 at 12:31 am

Hello to all my SA friends. You did not know you were my friends, but I did! I have been lurking for several months and decided to jump in and introduce myself to you.

As my bio states, I am a 43 y/o single female (BTW, are you “single” when you are in a committed relationship, but not married to the guy?) living in Northern California. I do not have children – I just never got that “thing” that others get that makes them want to have babies. Now that I’m 43, I guess it isn’t going to happen. My wonderful boyfriend of 5 years has two teenage sons, so I get my kid-fix through them. 

I chose Seven of Seven as my title as it is my birth order in my family – I am the youngest of seven kids born to a career Army Solider and a SAHM. I had a terrific childhood! I never knew, until I was an adult, what a financial thin line we lived on. I had everything I needed as far as I can remember. My mother made clothes, and also shopped at thrift shops. I learned at an early age how to pick out good quality (look at the fabric and the stitching, buy good brands) at Goodwill stores. As a young adult, I moved to California from the Midwest and bought all my work clothes (suits mostly) from thrift shops. I looked great, and paid very little for my wardrobe.

Anyway, I will tell you more about myself over the next few days. I don’t want to make my first entry too long, or you might not want to come back!

I’m glad to be here and look forward to sharing my goals, trials and tribulations along the way.

Cheers!

    Welcome! Kid thing. I have three, they're wonderful and I love them all dearly.... But the desire to have kids... that's something I'll never quite understand. Then again, I am a guy. Then again again, there are guys who also want to have kids. Then again again again, the ones I've known that say that don't just want to have kids, but they only want kids that are from their own seed.... Adoption alone will not do. The logic behind all that (if any) truly baffles me.

    BA, you're so enlightened. Smile
    Welcome, 7, from Fern (2/2). Lots of women in their early 40s get pregnant, so, umm, be careful.

    Welcome 7, I am so glad you have joined us! My father was in the army for over 30 years, but retired when I was only 8 years old.
