My name is Claudine Sloppy, yes, I love my husband very much, this is why I took such a conversation piece of a last name. Okay, not entirely true- I actually left the last name choice up to the young lady at the Social Security office. She never asked how I wanted my last name, just looked at the marriage certificate and I became Claudine Sloppy- I guess much easier than the hyphenated version, Claudine Gardner-Sloppy (another story).
I officially met my husband about 6 years ago and we married almost three years ago . Yes, my first!!!! I figured I had bypassed the divorce stage by marrying so late!!!!
There is a story to when we actually met for the first time -but what counts is the meeting about 25 years later- you should clearly remember your first meeting , right???
We met on Match.com and I was beyond wary, but, with my friends realization and confirmation( there was a picture) that we had indeed met before and that he was not a Jack-the-ripper or Jeffrey Daumer – I slowly opened up to him. We had actually been in the same wedding decades earlier – that of the friend I mentioned!!!!!
I am 48 years and getting younger everyday thanks to my stepchildren who keep me going strong!!!! This is also a double-edged sword.They give me plenty of writing material but not enough time to sit down and share some of the wonderfully marvelous moments we have shared in the past 6 years.
I used to write occasionally and now it is beyond rare that I get the opportunity to write. I want to change the latter and grow as a writer. I need to make time for writing – this has always been a problem -at least on a consistent basis. I am looking forward to learning and growing by absorbing as much as I can from my peers. I have attended one of the Pennwriters events held locally and was very impressed by the people and organization, so , when I decided to join a writers group, there was no research, I knew what group would be the perfect fit and that is the Pennwriters group.
