My name is Abby. I work full-time as a RV Detailer in a big company. In another month, I will have been working here a year. It is hard busy work, but since I have achy bones and am in pain every day, it helps me to keep on moving. Since I started working here I have been working 5 regular 8 hour shifts per week and typically working on both Saturdays and Sundays 5-6 hours per day. I love working and I truly enjoy the people I work with in this RV Lot. In our particular lot we all get along, There isnt any petty arguments or fights or none of that. We work hard and we laugh hard too!! I feel lucky and blessed to work with a wonderful group of people!! I do have 2 College Degrees in counseling but after 4 years, even though I was a pretty good counselor , it wasnt the clients that I struggled with but other counselors. So I stopped working in the field. After that I worked with Alzheimer/ Dimentia folks. I loved my folks and enjoyed them so greatly.. They had the best most fascinating stories. We had great times. Although they didnt remember my name or anything like that, we still did fun things together. People may think I could never do this type of work, but I grew to love them all and would do anything for anyone of the folks. I did that for a year, than had measly jobs here and there. But this one as a detailer is a keeper because I can apply for other jobs within the company. So theres plenty of room for advancement!!

Hi Letty, My name is Abby I was also born and raised in California.. San Jose, California. I live in Oregon now. I moved here with my husband in 1985. Well actually he was still in the military and i moved here in oregon to his moms house with my 2 children. I love to write and definitely know the struggles that come along with Domestic Violence. Ahem... My first marriage was like that... It was a nighmare, I was verbally and physically abused, it was horrible and unfortunately took me years to overcome the feelings of being worthless, the depression, the hurt and so many other things. I also coached soccer. What a great game. Well if you ever want to talk i would be happy to write to you.. Oh yeah one more thing, I am a Latina or whats some would call hispanic mom of 4 all grown children 38,36,29,25..

Hello there Smiley Happy

 

My name is Cathe, I am 51, live in California, a loving Mom of 6 (4 of my own and 2 stepkids), Nana to 8, happily married wife of 12 years to my teacher/writer husband Rob. I love the ocean and everything in it.. living close to the ocean is my future dream.. I have always felt comfortable by the beach.. swimming, walking, sailing, surfing, body surfing, boogie boarding.. I love to have parties at or by the ocean with family and friends.. On a Zen day, I just love to relax on the beach with a good book or my journal. I will be an almost empty nester this summer.. my husbands 16 year old is with us part time, and my 2 youngest: 23 and 25 are moving out. My hubby and I love to travel and are going to Disney World in June for our 12 year anniversary! So excited! We've only gone to Las Vegas or Reno.. or local places in California together. I have traveled on my own all over the U.S. & several countries in Europe. I can't wait to share the world traveling with my hubby!

I am also an avid photographer, scrapbook artist, mixed media artist and art journaler. I love to create albums of memories mixed with paper crafts.. for family and friends to enjoy for years to come!

Hello,  

 

I'm a senior and I keep busy but would love to have a person just to chat with occasionally.

 

I have a husband, 1 daughter and 2 step-daughters and 7 grands and my 'baby' Sam, a West Highland terrier.  I like cooking, gardening, keeping the birds fed, crocheting, sewing and reading.  I walk every other day for about 2 miles. 

 

If you would like to be a pen pal, please send me a message.

 

Cindy
