hi all,
I'm new to this team, so this is an interesting first post for me.

1- my kids and I homeschooled for 11 years
2- I love dollhouses and have over 20 in different stages of completion
3- I am a Duranie (fan of Duran Duran)
4- I am addicted to Downton Abbey right now
5- my dog, Lola, is my soulmate
6- I seem to have a stream of almost constant negative/sad/frustrating thoughts, but still consider myself an optimist (is that crazy?)
7- I have strong intuition, and am trying to learn to trust it more
8- I have felt since I was a child that I live in the wrong country and belong in England
9- I am a couponer (but not the extreme kind you see on tv) and love a bargain
10- my favorite movie is The Holiday

Don't put the key to your happiness in another person's pocket. Keep it safe and secure in your own.

Hi Angel. My maiden name has never caused me any problems. My mother's second husband adopted me, which is how I wound up with the last name Kennedy. I am really proud of the name and proud to be his daughter. My problem with gummy bears is that they are a trigger food. If I ever start eating them, I can't stop.

Well, I can sit in the water all day long. Water and mud make me happy! Still, I need air to breathe-so I am not a fish, but a frog :)

Plantago - a frog? In what way are you a frog or frog-like?

Jackie - interesting maiden name. Was that hard for you at all?
What sort of problem do you have with gummie bears? Like is it an addictive sort of food or do you hate them for some reason?

Wow - we are putting it all out there, huh? That's okay, I have never had a secret about myself!

1. My full name is Angela Adra Dawn Ritter - Adra Dawn is my aunt, so I adopted the Adra part on my own. She hates her name and I love it... and her.
2. Aunt Di in my blogs is not really my aunt, she's a beloved friend who has as many problems as I do... and she's bipolar, which I am not so I am learning A LOT!
3. I was a counselor for Job Corps students, as well as an Equal Opportunity Officer
4. My favorite and longest job was a Marketing Research Analyst for Vistakon
5. I love my parents to death and they are my best friends.
6. I am a sad person most of the time and find humor is the best way to communicate.
7. I often start projects and don't finish them - I get this from my father. (Ask my mom!)
8. I WAS an overachiever, now I am just angry because I can't "achieve" working - my body is working against me and this doesn't help my major depressive disorder.
9. I think my goal in life is to bring laughter to others who need it.
10. I love to read and I love to write and have written one things that was published in a magazine - and no, I refuse to tell you where. It's too embarrassing!

BONUS: I love this site and feel it is helping me save my life.
