Welcome Mits where do you live and where do you go to school. Yes we are a close knit group but we have been yacking to each other for several years. Trust me newbies are always welcome.
We have supported each other through all kinds of lifechaning events. We have become grandparents, lost loved ones, and supported others when they were facing major illness. I could not have asked for a better bunch of friends a few years ago when I had a seriosu health issue. You will never find a better support group then us.
We may not be normal but we are always there for each other.
I live in Grove City (Columbus) at the heart of it all.
Here is my run down (to get to know ME a little better):
Married with 4 children, ages 24 (with a granddaughter), 22 (with a grandson), 16 and 3 year old.
I go to school full time. It took me 43 years to decide "what I want to be when I grow up". LOL Been in school now almost 2 years. Pursing a nursing degree.
I work at the local hospital in the Emergency Room (because I'm morbid and like that kind of stuff-which is a good thing since I'm going to be a nurse.)
I worked there for 14 years before quitting, then went to work for a non-profit agency running a program for the elderly. 3 days before Christmas last year, they decided not to renew the grant money funded for that program and I lost my job (and my heart). So, I went back to work at the hospital that I had been at since I was 18.
We love to cruise and are trying to do 1 per year (which is challenging with only 3 breaks a year from school), we are pretty much limited to when we can go.
That's pretty much the low down on me. Now everyone knows me. hehe
I love group that are tight like this. I became really tight with my cruise buddies on my 9/11 roll call last year for the Epic. A few select have become VERY close friends. We talk on a daily basis on facebook, confide in each other, send cards and gifts, and we are planning a reunion cruise. They are a great bunch of people!
