Hello Im Erika


First of all congratulations to you board owners, fab board, and I have been watching its development.
I have read all your introductions with great interest, I feel so blessed to be among such nice people on runboard and all over runboard.

Im Erika, its not my real name, but like Sertab its the name I use on here, a few know my real name, but I don't like it and I love the name Erika its my middle name anyway.
I have 4 sprogs who depend on me, they are my life and my reason for being here. They make me sad and happy all in one day, but at the end of the day when I say goodnight and I get their hugs and they tell me they love me it makes the sad parts go away fast.

I have 4 dogs, that will grow as I breed soon and with the breeding them I find it hard to part with them. I intend to keep 2 more, and that will be it for us pet wise.

I do believe in god, and I find his work very interesting, I have my own personal beliefs and do pray etc. I would like to go to Church but have no one to go with and it is something that I wouldn't do alone. Over the last few years of my life I think I have called on God a lot more than I have done all my life, and the power of prayer has helped me a great deal.

I meditate too and that also helps to clear my mind sometimes of daily traumas that come along.

I have a very good memory some people say I have a photographic memory, my memory is more for detail. I will remember the colour of your sock 20 years on. Sometimes the memory is scary for me because I can't forget things I want to forget. So have to deal with them in other ways.

I found computers 2002 and never knew how to turn them off, every night I would just switch it off at the plug, it was only one day when my Mum was around she saw what I did and told me the correct way to turn off a PC, I was angry with myself for not knowing that, so decided to get online and really learn how to use them.

I can to Runboard with another person who was the original owner of my board, she got bored with it and handed it over to me, since then it has changed in every way and to win board of the year last year was something that was just out of this world for me. I could never have imagine that anything I could ever have done would have done so well, so for me to win that was one of the best things in my life.

Being taken on as a moderator by Corey for The Directory actually made me cry, to think that he thought I was good enough to help him on his board made my day so wonderful, I was on a constant high, and I still am.

I moved to my home town where we live now and never went out for so long that I became a bit of a loner here. I don't have many friends here as I find it hard to trust people. My friends are all from my other town.

I own a Pizza shop, and we are better than Domino, they moved here to try to put us out of business but we do better than they do.

Now I have rambled on far too much, sorry about that.
Good luck with the board again and its nice to know you all. emoticon

Edit..
Since I loved my middle name so much ive changed it by deed poll, so im now legally Erika. emoticon

 emoticon Replacing the kids with dogs, now why didn't I think about that. emoticon I think its more that each child has a dog, right now one doesn't but he has shown great respect to them so he deserves one too, so he will have the next pup, and then well I want another one. emoticon

Thanks all for the welcomes.

Re: Hello Im Erika


Erika I also had four children all grown up now and I did replace them with dogs. My two are my babies, you will see stories about them all over the place. You children never stop being your babies though and when they get married you gain more children, so I now have 6 people to worry about. My eldest and his wife are leaving South Africa in three weeks to settle in Edinburgh so the pain of parting is just around the corner for me when I travel to Johannesburg to say goodbye to them. My mother tried to explain how it felt when my sister left to live in Canada 20 years ago, we used to tell her that she was only a letter or a phone call and then an email away, but it's not the same thing. So now I'll be forced to do some travelling because I have no intention of allowing them to never see me again.
Good luck with the pizza place. One one of my trips to the UK to visit the kids, I will take the opportunity to visit you and Sertab so I can meet you in person.

I'm the same way! I can remember a lot of things that I've said, or what I was wearing or someone else was, or other detailed like stuff.. but I usually forget peoples Names.. and I hate when that happens.. someone will come up to me and be like Hey Josh! Haven't seen you forever. And I'll recognize their face, and mayb e even rememeber doing something with them.. but I never remember their names lol.
