This is a post about me, Jabo asked me to do one to introduce myself.I'm following her advice. I am 52 years old, married for the past 27 years. We have two sons, both grown up , one is working and the other studying.So my nest is empty. To top it all two years ago my husband was transferred to another place.I stayed on because of my job. We meet on weekends and whenever else we can manage.In fact a good part of my life is spent in traveling. I teach mathematics in a college.I love my job ,the teaching part as well as being among my students. I am glad I stumbled on to myLot. People are friendly and responsive here.It is nice getting to know you all. Have a good day everyone.

@PainsOnSlate I think so too. My mother used to use beads in her embroidery .She would make these lovely embroidered yokes for my kurtas(short dresses) where she would embroider a flower and the bead was the centre Now she doesn't do much embroidery. but she uses up odds and ends and makes it into something new :)

@responsiveme That explains how you know so much about books! I am supposed to start reading today when it comes to the mail Mental health through will training i believe it is called. I tracked the package, and it was supposed to arrive today, but it is only 12:18 pm and the mail didn't even arrive yet, and i think it comes in that! I am going to spend the evening reading decided i need six hours a day of reading for a couple of hours at a time, and it could be more hours Today it will probably be more as I have nothing to do!

Wow, that really must be difficult living away from your husband for the past two years. It shows that you have a strong relationship to be able to do that. Do your sons live near you, so at least you still have family around you for comfort, companionship and support?

First the good news..its vacation time :) so we are together. No,actually the boys too live away,the younger one is in the same city as his father.He lives in his residential campus but keeps coming over. No family members around where I stay.Both of us come from the same place , so there are three places I keep shuttling in between . Could you tell me about you?

@responsiveme It is great that you are able to be together for a longer period of time at the moment! There isn't much to tell about me. I am a stay-at-home mom with a pretty boring life. I am also a fairly private person, but I love to joke and have fun. I am pretty comfortable talking with most people, but I do have a difficult time being overly serious sometimes, especially on here. I think that maybe I have to be more serious offline, so I come here to have fun and usually not get into anything too heavy or serious ... except when the mood or topic is interesting or is something I am passionate about.
