    Mother of 3, Grandmother of 4 (he finally arrived - YEAH), live with my husband and 4 cats who tolerate our existence as long as we feed them every day and clean out the cat box.I just got laid off so I will be looking for work after taking a couple of weeks off. After getting flooded 3 times in 5 years, we finally got smart and moved into a much nicer house (a bit higher up) in a rural setting and I love it. Now I have room to start up my fishkeeping again - and maybe get a couple more 4 legged friends too.

    Reading, Camping, Fishing (I throw them back), just being outdoors

    I try to help when I can, but don't always know the right thing to do. Please wait for more opinions or advice before planning a course of action.
