Finding Old Friends - refugees of other sites, come out come out and play!
My introduction post was not really a proper introduction, since it looked to be a test that would either allow me to have an account here or not. I didn't realize my intro was going to be my FIRST post here at Persona Paper. Sincerely sorry about that!
I would like to say a warm fuzzy hello to past friends who may have come here from Bubblews and prior to that, from Mylot. I was originally Mommyboo at Mylot and I used the same handle over at Bubblews, I just wasn't there much. I have lost touch with the majority of people I used to talk to almost daily, so since I found this site and there seems to be a huge infusion of people coming, if you remember me from one of those places, PLEASE comment and let me know who you are, HOW you've been, and jump right in!
I don't remember a lot of names, but I do remember some writing styles, topics, and general humor, and please don't be offended if I don't remember you, if you're memorable from now on, I will for sure! This post is also for people I don't know already, because I'm sure I would like to know you too, especially if you're currently active here or plan to be active here.
OH! A little about me besides the fact that I run and I like coffee. I've been married for 10 years and have 3 kids - only one is still at home (she's 10). I have 2 furry kids - both boys, Simon is a retriever-corgi mix and Rusty is a red lab. They are both rescues and very silly and affectionate, as well as occasionally annoying. I coach cross country for kids and have a paraprofessional cert that I'm not using right now - but I do want to get back into something part time. I have traveled more in the last few years since I started running competitively again than I have for vacations and leisure previously. In fact, I try to plan vacation and leisure trips around a run or a race because that means I usually will get to see other aspects of an area than you would normally see. I guess I'm not your average tourist. In the past 3 years I have traveled to Vegas for the first time (and been back several), Arizona, several places in Utah, and I've also been across the country to MA (for the Boston Marathon). I would love to hit other states by running something in them - great way to see the sights, right? I also like all food... well, almost all food. I don't purposely avoid anything - unless I don't like the texture or taste.
All in all, I am very glad to have discovered this place, and to be here with all of you. I'll check in periodically to see who shows up!
