Hi Catherine :wave: welcome to the village! I'm Dee, I live in upstate NY with my hubby and 10 kitties.
I have never had children myself, so I don't know how it is with having a granddaughter live with you. But these ladies here are the best. We have quite a diverse group here in the village with one main quality, everyone is very caring.
So jump on in and post away I'm sure you will soon love it here as much as we do.
Hi CatherineID! :welcome: I don't think anyone here is raising grandchildren. I'm in my early 40's and have an infant and toddler of my own. It's quite a shock after having the first one 1/2 grown. (Ds#1 is 11) Even though ds#2 will be 1 in a couple of months, I still feel really tied down at times. It worries me sometimes when I think about how old I'll be when they graduate high school. On the plus side, between the wrinkles and sags, they keep me young at heart!
Hi and thanks for the re-welcome. I joined the board back in November and I think I did a newbie message then. I didn't visit much because, well, the holidays hit! This seems like a very friendly board and I do love living a frugal and simple life. Thanks!
