Hey, there! You can call me GEN, or G, or whatever you like as long as it's nice.
I'm 27 years old. I live in Pennsylvania. I have been married to my hubby for 6 years, and we have a beautiful, sweet, funny, energetic 9 month old baby girl. (Can you tell I'm in love?) We have a cat who regularly pukes on our white carpet. I like to read, write, cook, and craft, among other things. I also like to fill out forms and look at the insides of peoples' houses (only when I'm invited
). I am a bit of a mixed bag.
I also have a tendency to become an internet addict, so forums are dangerous for me. My previous experience with forums disappointed me, as some of the members got way too serious for my tastes. I am hoping that here I can find a fun, casual, inspiring place to hang out, but also that I can be successful at being responsible with my time (i.e., not spending all day online!).
By now you have probably learned way more than you wanted to know from someone you just "met," but you may discover soon enough that brevity is not one of my strengths. Bless you for reading on.
Anyway. I have two resolutions for the new year, although I'm making them a little late. They are:
1. I am going to get off my duff and start living my life again. I am a SAHM and have allowed myself to get a bit shut in. So I am going to call my friends, set up playdates, take some time to myself, get back in the groove!
2. I am going to make time to be crafty again. I have so many crafty-type hobbies and so many things I want to try. I am an artsy person by nature. I love to create. But it hardly ever happens because I don't make the time for it. Because I love it so much and because I'm always bummed that I don't do it more, I am resolving to set aside time to be creative. That's where this forum comes in. I'm hoping it will inspire me.
Thanks for letting me introduce myself. Now I'm off to my knitting!
