OK, here's me;
1. I am 41, but rarely admit it. (Have been told I look a lot younger)
2. I have never been married, and have been single for the past 10 years.
3. I live with my 17 year old daughter, Elysha. We are a lot like the Gilmore Girls :)
4. I keep, breed, show and judge cavies. (guinea pigs) We have had over 100 in the past, but only have about 25 now. My main breeds are black American cresteds (smooth black cavy with a white rosette on the head) and Self Dark Eyed Whites. Have had cavies all my life, since I was 4 years old.
5. I used to do talks with animals to schools and groups. I had a lot of exotic pets at the time; a skunk, Short-tailed opossums, African Pygmy hedgehogs, loads of exotic rodents (Duprasi, gophers, Mara, zebra mice, Gambian pouched rats, Pygmy mice, Harvest mice etc) various amphibians, snakes and lizards, and inverts. It was a bit like living in a zoo!
6. I make and sell jewellery.
7. When I was younger I had pink hair for about 5 years.
8. I have one tattoo (a celtic knotwork band on my arm) and the following piercings; 10 in my ears, 3 in my nose, my belly button and a labret. (between lower lip and chin) Although sometimes I don't wear any jewellery at all.
9. I drive a really tatty old car, it cost less than my Chi's lol
10. Elysha has kneecaps that dislocate (a human with LP!) so is often on crutches, and sometimes in a wheelchair :(
11. As well as the dogs and cavies we have a cat called Blue, a gopher called Hovis and a pair of Syrian hamsters, George and Millie.
12. I am allergic to molluscs.
13. George the hamster is currently loose in the house, as he escaped from his tank.
14. I never drink instant coffee, it doesn't taste like coffee, it just tastes brown.
15. i love to sing, I used to be in bands when I was a teenager.
16. I didn't go to University until I was 27.
17. I make collars, leads and harnesses for cats and dogs, plus matching jewellery and accessories.
18. I used to not like Toy breeds. I was always a big dog person, and working with dogs, (groomers, kennels) it was always the tinies that bit me. I am converted now, I can't see myself ever having anything other than Chihuahuas. :D
19. I love horses, and trained to be a riding instructor, but have never owned one of my own. It is my ambition to breed a foal and train it myself from day one.
20. I have 2 sisters, one older and one younger, and an 8 year old nephew and 3 year old niece.

Ooh, me!! Me!

1. Um, I'm 29, sigh...the number 29 is so ugly, I'd rather be 30 twice. I think. Dh says probably not and that I should cherish my last year of 20's...though it's half over almost.
2. Dh is 5 1/2 years older than me. We met when I was 18 and I KNEW he was the man I was going to marry from the first instant I saw him.
3. We're Christian, I got saved when I was 19.
4. We've been married for almost 9 years! People told me I was insane to get married at 20, but I wish we would have gotten married sooner.
5. We have 4 kids and would welcome more if the Lord saw fit. They are 8 (boy), 5 (girl), 3 (boy), 1 (girl). They go *CHILL*, *stubborn*, *STUBBORN*, *chill*. I guess my boys are the extremes. My first almost never cried, and he's just always been a really good boy. My youngest son is a stinker! Thank goodness we had two others first, he would have scared us out of having anymore. lol
6. We homeschool. Love it. We do classical-ish style, based some on Charlotte Mason.
7. We are prayerfully considering being full-time missionaries someday in the nearish future. We'll see where God leads us on that, but my husband is absolutely fascinated with Russia and Ukraine.
8. We're really boring. Really, really boring. Our idea of a good night is watching tv/movies together after the kids are in bed. It works for us.
9. I've never been in a bar. I was 20 when my first son was born, and I just never wanted to be away from him. I'm a very attached Momma.
10. I don't work. I haven't since right before my first son was born. I also never finished college. I dropped out a few months before I got pregnant because I just wanted to be a mom and it seemed pointless to me to keep going to school and going into to debt to never use my degree. I couldn't decide on a degree anyway, and switched from high school drama teacher to biochemical engineer (really I just wanted to take more calculus) to high school english teacher in a matter of months. It just wasn't meant to be.
11. If I ever worked again, I'd probably be a midwife (after some schooling obviously). I'm in love with natural birth and have had 3 homebirths.
12. My dream is to buy a 12 or 15 passenger van and fill it with kids. Dh faints every time I bring it up. lol

Been here a long time and not actually sure if I participated in this thread. Hmmm..

*I've only driven a car once in the past year. I hate driving and will avoid it at all costs now; but I LOVE car rides. It's not being in the car that weirds me out, it's being in control of it.

*My picture was in the Savage Garden Fanzine once.

*I have a lot of poetry published but don't really like it anymore LOL

*I want to be engaged and keep looking at opal and rose gold rings... not a diamond or yellow-gold girl myself. I prefer white gold or silver... but rose gold has become my exception to the rule... I WANT THIS RING!!

...here we go!

I am currently 29 years old.

Along with my Bear, I've got a cat named Butters, and 2 siberian chipmunks. The female chippie, Boogie, was actually in a UK mcdonalds commercial for the second Alvin & The Chipmunks movie!

My parents live 1500 miles away. They never let me visit because they're afraid I'll never leave!

I've been in a relationship for almost 4 years now. He is very abusive. I want to leave, but I am on a fixed income, and need to save money so I can leave the area. (fyi he does NOT abuse my animals)

I love trashy reality tv, which I recently re-discovered. I didn't watch television for 2 years prior!

I was born into a Jewish family. My grandmother (still alive) is a survivor of the holocaust. She was in Auschwitz.

I however am an Atheist. I think my dads a closet Atheist, but coming from an Orthodox Jewish family, he keeps it on the low :p

I have a older sister who is a functioning alcoholic. My parents are in denial.

My parents are rich, and I grew up extremely privileged. Now that I'm on my own, I struggle financially. My parents do help, but its still tough. I hate being almost 30 and broke.

I am left handed, although I can only use scissors with my right hand.

I love trash picking! I've found so much cool stuff that way!

I started driving again last year. I recently got different car. My previous car I bought for $700.

I do not drink, smoke cigs, or do any drugs. However, in my early 20's, I experimented with all three. I am extremely thankful that I never picked up an addiction!

I have no real friends where I live. I pretty much isolate at home.

My favorite band is Alice in Chains. I don't want children, but if I did, I'd name him/her Layne, after AIC's lead singer.

I sleep with my cell phone & Ipod every night.

I am diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. Whenever I was sad as a kid, my mom would buy me a present to make me feel better. I am now a compulsive shopper.

I love Neil Degrasse Tyson & Penn Jillette. They are my heroes!

Sheldon Cooper is my favorite fictional television character.

I love old jars and bottles. My shelves are filled with all the ones I've collected!

I have an irrational fear of seafood and raw meat. Because of this, I eat alot of prepared foods.

Okay Bear is smothering me with kisses, so I'll end it here. Thanks for reading !

I spend a lot of my time with my Chihuahuas and am closer to them than to humans in my life and a wise lady told me that if my Chihuahuas do not like a person then I shouldn't either, as they can pick up on a bad human quicker than we can. So I support their judgement unconditionally on this.

Ok, guess I'll bust in here:

I'm 29 going on 6, or 86, depending how you look at it. But I've been told by more than a few people that I have an "old soul"

I'm the youngest of 6, but I'm an only child

I was born on my middle sister's 7th birthday, and she's never forgiven me for it.

I'm an ex-PK, and I am fascinated by religions. I don't subscribe to any one of them.

All of my children are furry, and it will remain that way indefinitely. Currently I am Mom to 3 dogs, 4 chinchillas and a rabbit. Oh, and then there's my betta Finnegan -- he's not furry, but I love him anyway :D

I find it hilarious when people call me selfish for not having children... especially when I know that their kids were a result of "wanting to be loved unconditionally"

People tend to make the error of thinking that I'm shy when they first meet me. Many of them quickly learn however, that I just prefer to size up the situation and think before I speak -- a quality I find so rare these days.

I am severely irritated by chat-speak -- especially since I've seen kids use it to write papers for school.

I double majored in University - Psychology and Criminal Justice. I wanted to work with serial killers. I use to study profiles after school when I was in Sr. High. It really freaked my mom out.

Then I was sent down a completely different path and now I'm a massage therapist with my own practice, working mainly with people with idiopathic (undiagnosable) pain. I am also a holistic health coach.

I have a secret (not anymore! HA!) dream to be in Burlesque.

I am constantly watching for the time when I get to go somewhere new... I am dying to move out of the US. It seems like every time I start to work it out, it gets shut down by outside forces. One day, one day...

I'm 39 will be 40 January 28th. Been married since 1999. I've always had dogs, can't imagine not! When I lost my chocolate lab 2 years ago I said I'd never get another dog. Well I have two chi mixes now lol. We still have our yellow lab, he's 15 years old. I'm scared for the day he passes, it will hurt my husband so! He's my husbands first dog! I'm a Certified Nurse Aid but letting my license go so I can work our home business full time which I've been doing for past two years now. I have anxiety and OCD, they are pretty controlled but I have my moments. I am not completely happy with my self but I'm working on that! I'm a home body and only have a few close friends. I take what people say too personal, that's probly why I don't post much.

I'm new so I guess everything would be a little known fact. I'm 41, I'm married with three young step children and have never lived with my husband as we are long distance. We hope to fix that eventually. Last year for my big 4-0 I became engaged, a grandma, married, and moved all my stuff across country to my husbands house then came back to my house with only clothes and two dogs.
I have social issues and am probably addicted to the Internet.
I have two grown children and am pretty sure pets have been my replacement for people, including those empty next feelings.
I latch onto an idea or item and research it to death. Right now its chihuahuas as I think I want one. Last year it was Yorkies and I've now ruled those out. I do that for everything: cars, food, ideas, dreams, financials, I just have to know everything about everything.

I don't know any of you as I am new but your stories are so touching. It is incredibly brave of everyone to be so forthcoming.
I am 45 years old. I am a teacher and i love my job. My only child is my daughter who is away in her freshman year of college. She is my best friend in the world and I miss her terribly but she is very happy so that is all I could want.
I am married but pretty much we are more roommates than anything. Not sure I would go as far as friends. He made a lot if mistakes earlier in our marriage and when our daughter was little that I cannot forgive. Too much drinking led to some bad decisions and he was not very nice to live with. I stuck it out because I didn't want to send my daughter with him unsupervised because inwas afraid of his drinking that he would not use good judgement of not to drive with her in the car or something like that. He doesn't drink now and knows he was wrong but for me that doesn't erase the pain he caused.
I have a Maine coon cat, a border collie, and a chihuahua. The chi is only 7 months old. When my daughter brought him home in June I was not so sure it would work out but she had faith and we soon found he is a right gentleman (but a bit cheeky sometimes) and though I am a bc lover I am head over heels for this little guy. I belong to a bc forum and have "met" some great people there whileearning so much about the breed. I hope to find the same knowledge and maybe even a few friends here as well.
