Default Intro--California Sunshine from California

Hello all my name is Lisa or Cali as everyone calls me here I live in Northern California,work for the State of California,I'm 33 and the proud mother of a beautiful four legged furry kid Dallas the cat (my only child) lol

I found PTO almost 3 years ago while searching for information on where my loved one was headed.What I found was much,much more then I ever expected! I was initially amazed at the wealth of knowledge in the California forum and I found not only information and knowledge but also support,understanding, camaraderie and friendship all over the board.

A lot has changed over the three years since I joined I am now a moderater here of many forums and I am no longer with my loved one who is home now.Why am I still here? Well the people at PTO welcomed me with open arms three years ago and have continued to do so since then.You have been a huge help to me throughout my break up and sad times,this place has become a life line of sorts to me and I feel I still have plenty to offer here although I no longer have a loved one in the system ( I do however have some great friends/penpals still inside).

I am here to welcome you to our home,give support and help however I can and share my story and the information I have learned as well as to get that from all of you which I do on a daily basis.

Thanks for everything!
Cali (Lisa)

Hi Lisa~

That was a beautiful introduction...I know that when I first joined PTO, I was very shy to talk to anyone (not knowing how everyone would be about the situation I was in). However I had no reason to worry...everyone here has been great! I'm glad to see that you decided to stay.

Nice to meet you Cali LOL damn you work for the State? Wish I'd known that BEFORE I offered to sign the divorce papers, I had some Cal Pers questions, sheesh.

I'm with you honey, PTO is the best thing that ever happened to me along this ride...

Your friend,
Patty

I hate it when I miss introductions (or in this case, am belated) of great PTO members (and staff in your case! )

Thanks for everything you have done at PTO and for the "sunshine" that you have poured on the multitudes!

I'm with David on this one. I am late as hell on this INTRO- or REINTRO!!! LOL, Lisa, you know you are on of the few people on PTO that make it worth me getting on PTO. Did I say that right? No, I love PTO and you are one of the reasons. Should have said it like that. WELCOME! LOL
