Taking an unexpected, indefinite-amount-of-time break (6/29/2014)
BC survivor - 18yrs - WOOHOO!
Hello! I'm Karen. I have a husband of 32 years and I have 4 boys. My oldest is a Marine and an Army Reservist his cute little wife and my 4 grandaughters (one is 9 and the twins are 6yo and a 2yo) live near Nashville. 2nd son got married after Thanksgiving and I have another cute DIL...awesomeness. #3 son is in trouble and is home again for a bit, and the baby may never leave here...at least they do go to school and work!
Our girl Lucy Fur.
I am Christian. I love my life, except when I don't.
I quilt ...I sew (even more now that I have granddaughters)...and I still have a lot of rubber stamps from my card-making years ago...am getting back into it too! I do a lot of home dec and small sewing items. I really love man tools and can use them more recklessly than my husband. It's only a machine.
"It's not what we say or what we feel, it's what we DO.
There are lots of southern sayings that just roll out of my mouth...bless my heart.
I love swapping and rate ASAP..
I am winning in the family brackets pool so far....for the FINAL FOUR! I won it last year too...and I know ..oh so very little about college basketball.

I'm a die-hard heavy metal fan...but I really like all music...from gospel, bluegrass, jazz to Elvis and Bob Dylan, Beatles, Alice Cooper, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Avett Brothers... Van Morrison is my fav. I have a hard time with country (depends on the song/singer).
I think the new term for my music obsession is Americana....

Love flea markets, thrift stores, clearance racks and yard sales!...and I have the 'crap' to prove it!
My kitchen is decorated with red plus whatever color I want for the season....well, there is red in every room of the house but my son's rooms. Love teals and blues and greens...purples, pinks, reds...don't hate any color!
