View Full Version : Hi from Wisconsin

09-29-2008, 11:24 AM
I'm new to this forum. My sister Lu Lu has been a member for a couple of years. I am a mother of three. Our daughter is 24 and married. Both are soldiers in the US Army and are on their way to Iraq. His second tour and her first tour. Our oldest son is 19 and is taking this semester off from school before switching to another college. Our youngest son is 17 and is a senior in high school. My husband is operations manager at a food plant.
I like to scrapbook a bit and make cards a lot. I knit, crochet, needlepoint, cross-stitch and sew. I bowl on three leagues and have a good average. I am a stay at home wife and mother. I have worked in the past. Mostly at a garden center in our area. I still work there occasionally when they need extra help or special projects done.
We have a 12 year old dog and are now taking care of our daughter's kitten. If anyone has any advice on what to do with a kitten I'd be glad to hear from you! I feel way out of my element in this situation!
I am excited to be here. My sister is always talking about this site and says many good things about it.

Glad your Sis convinced you to join us. We have a lot of fun. I'm sure there is someone who can help you with the kitten.

Where in Wisconsin do you and LuLu live? I lived in Kenosha twice and taught in Racine and Belmont.

Welcome to the board, Deb. That's great that you share a hobby with your sister. I wish my sister scrapbooked.

So Luann are you originally from Wisconsin or is Deb from here? or neither?

As for the kitty....I love cats (I have three)....they pretty much take care of themselves. Just have a litter box, food and water.....they will be playful at this age...but they are fun!

How does the kitty get along w/ your dog?

LuAnn and I are both from Wisconsin. LuAnn and her husband went to school in Kansas and moved to PA after graduation. We live in New Berlin which is west of Milwaukee. The dog is an outside dog so the kitten and dog haven't really had too much contact with each other. The kitten hisses when she sees the dog and the dog tends to ignore the kitten.
