Mom to 3 boys, 36, 33 & 27 and a daughter who is 21. Great relationship with my fella for the past 20 years. Am NOW attending Bates Vocational College, earning a degree in Facilities Maintenance Engineering. Work as little as possible but occasionally perform odd-jobs for the Pierce County Auditor's Office, the U.S. Census Bureau, the Puyallup School District, and The Puyallup Fair. Get quite a few hours monthly working for Staff Pro, the staffing professional at various venues such as Century Link Field, Tacoma Dome and Key Arena assisting with security at Soccer, Football games and concerts.

The guys and I are members of Boy Scouts of America and my daughter and I are involved in International Order of Rainbow for Girls. We are also involved in the local Anime community, and annually attend Sakura-con in Seattle, in the Spring.

Have lost more than 35 pounds and am looking forward to wearing shorts this summer. Brrrr, only 4 weeks until Spring.

    Hi! I moved to Lacey recently from out of state, and I'm still struggling with how to pronounce Puyallap. Maybe we can keep each other encouraged, although I'll warn you, I'm a bit down... it's been a hard few days. Anyway, nice to meet you. :-)
