About Me

I am new to group forums. My BFF has been all over the internet and met some pretty amazing people. I was raised as an Army Brat but spent all my years till jr college living at Fort Ord and Monterey California. Lucky me, I met my best friend at the age of 8, Dorothy. We are still to this day 52 years later side kicks. Spent 14 years living in Los Angelos area. Because of the smog, crime, and pollution our family moved to the great north west and ended up in Vancouver Washington.Been here since 1994 and worked st our hospital for 23 years in the lab, hence, LABLAURI.I am married to a wonderful man of two year. On our first date, he said he wanted to save Venice Italy for his honeymoon. A year later on Oahu, under a big crescent moon, reflexing off the still waters, he asked for my hand in marriage. A year later, we are on a gondola in Venice . Other than my husband, I have 3 boys. Will 36, and my twins, John and Chris 33 I should mention were born on Christmas Day with red hair. Will and his wife have 2 children Joey and FINALLY a girl, Annabelle. John and his wife are expecting a boy in July. Which brings me to my best friend. I wouldn't say we are to competitive, but I will never forget my phone call to her announcing I too was having twins. She had twin girls 4 months before my twin boys. We don't live near each since I left for college but the 4 remain friends to this day.

I love to garden and am starting my first herb garden. UPDATE: Not very successful, oh well.

My favorite color is sage and purple. My husband must really love me because he let me paint our bedroom lavender πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ. The rest of the house is sage.

I play piano but only for myself .

I must be honest, I did not know what a Washi was till my BFF shared with me her stash. Looking forward to obtaining some. UPDATE: we got throw away lab coats now. Wear for a week or so then depose of it. I have since brought WASHI tape to work with me and I have the prettiest and most unusual lab coat. I have got to introduce Washi tape to people! Even got one med tech to check into swap bot.

Favorite Television

I love British TV. and subscribe to Acorn TV. They have Aussie tv shows too. Thank goodness for my iPad and wireless headphones. Hubby can watch his shows and I can watch mine,

Sports

I am a cubbies fan and married into it. Love Baseball and Football. I also love the Seattle Seahawks as I am from Washington. We watch a lot of baseball and football. So I would like anything Seahawks or Chicago Cubs stickies or whatever!

Favorite Crafts

If it wasn't for by best friend, I wouldn't do crafts. I see the hours she spends making and creating art. I started small with jewelry. Still learning but can do the basics. My first mistake was spending three days beading. I didn't know to take breaks. I paid the price. Now, I get up, make a cup of tea, or just move around.

Traveling has given me the opportunity to take pictures. Now I make beautiful cards. Favorites are snap shots from Venice Italy and Kauai.

Travel

I love to travel. I did not know my husband belonged to a time share till I ran across it while moving into our home. What's this I asked. He rarely has used it over the years and I was, give me everything you have on it because it will be used. I love going to the resorts, no travel lodge for me! Other than Venice, I have been to England, Paris, Rome, Florida, San Francisco, Monterey, San Diego, Kauai ( first Anniversary). Victoria BC (New Years). San Antonio Texas just cause...I have us locked into San Francisco again..for Christmas, my brother Dave got my husband and I tickets to the Cubs one night and the next night him and his wife will join us. This fall, the big island and St. Thomas Virgin Island next April. The hardest part is waiting.

Comment: I typically have two boxes on my desk: incoming and out going mail. I go through incoming every three days and register everything. As for sending out, I typically do two big sendouts a week and will knock out every paired swap that day if possible. succulents are pretty forgiving about watering. Is there a whole in the bottom of the pail? when in doubt I water my succulents about once a week.
Response: Fantastic advice thank you!
