Hi. I'm Terri. I've been reading for a little while. I live in central Mississippi just south of Jackson. I'm a Mississippi small town girl all my life. I'm 39 years old. I've spent the last 6 years homeschooling my two girls ages 16 and almost 8. This year I have put my older child in school. Back in 1998, I left my "career" for a "better lifestyle". I live in an 85 year old home on 11 acres in an area still considered "the country" but on the outskirts of a booming metro area. We have chickens, presently one horse, cats, a hamster (presently loose somewhere in the house), and a snake. We have had goats. I miss them very much. After supporting my family on ebay for a number of years, I now sell real estate and love my job. Specifically, I love relocating people from the city to the country. My hobbies (when I have time), include junk-shopping, small town auctions, painting and other forms of art, altered books, cooking, hiking, camping, reading, collecting nature artifacts and some other stuff, (I could go on and on.). I used to be a serious chatboard junkie...but I've given it up. Nice to "meet" you all.
