1. First Name
Kathy short for Kathleen which I only like a few people to call. Like the patron at work who is from Ireland and says with this accent.
2. Age
Fortie-ish.
3. Location
Franklin, Massachusetts which is South East of Boston. I love living in New England and especially Massachusetts because it is a very liberal state.
4. Occupation
Library Assistant. I can't say I'm Librarian because you need your Master's Degree to be called that! I love my job and my library, which great. I would like to get Master's but have been putting it off for years because of money and also fear that I can't do it. I really like what I'm doing now and would be so happy if I got more hours and moved up.
5. Partner
Alas, no one. Never thought wanted kids but lately have been feeling like the old clock is ticking and yes I would love a child.
6. Kids
See above!
7. Siblings
I have four brothers and a sister. The are all quite a bit older than me. I was a change-of-life baby. A surprise for my parents who thought they were all done.

8. Pets
I lost my cat, Arthur, after 19 years. I would love another kitten but can't really afford it at the moment. I recently took care of my sister's golden retriever. I'm totally in love with and think maybe yeah I'd like a dog. But they are so much work and the expense...

9. List the 3-5 biggest things going on in your life.
Really boring and dull!
I guess, work, money, and family crapola.
10. Parents
My mum is in her late 80's and yes I live with her. She couldn't live on her own and no way do I want her in a nursing home.
11. Some of your closest friends are:
My mom is my best friend and the fab Jane Brady here on LJ. I have some more close friends that I made at school and work.

That's it. Very dull life.

I keep thinking of you as thirty-ish. That's the age you look!

And, as you know, my life is boring & dull too. In a way, that's good because there's no drama or unusual stressors occuring. I am definitely grateful for that, having had my share of it in the past.

You don't want a kid--especially now, being 40-ish--trust me. They are such a HUGE commitment in both time and money. More work & expense than a dog, that's for sure!

I was 20 when I had Seamus--early enough so that I was on my own in my forties. If one is going to have kids, I would recommend they do it before the age of 30-32. You need that youthful energy to keep up with them. Under 25, you're still trying to "find" yourself...

BTW--it's me, "Jan Brady"! (I'm sure you could guess.) :-)

And I love the Ice Cream at Spruce Pond. It would be dangerous for me if I live within walking distance---I'd be there all time.

Yeah... we try to limit ourselves to ice cream no more than once per week. We have a friend who lives in the Chestnut Ridge Condos near you. My uncle lives behind CVS as well. So far we love Franklin!

Ahh! I learned a bit more about you! Never knew you were a change of life baby! I have an uncle who is a year older than I who was also a change of life baby! And I didnt know you took care of your mom. I did this for several years with my grandmother so I know what a task it can be.
