      Hello, I’m new to this site and have been taking the time out to learn all it has to offer. And so for I’m very impressed with this site and you ladies. I am a wife and mother of four, ages 22,18,16,and 4. I made a choice to stay home and raise my kids. Now they are old enough to watch themselves and help me with my 4yr. old. I’m now ready to get out and venture and try new things, meaning career, a social life with other adults and just doing what adults do period. I don’t get out to often, so I’m really slow to what’s really going on out in this new world. So what I’m asking is for you to help me with different ideas on the things I mentioned I’m ready to do. I will read each and everyone of them, in hopes that they will help with my new decisions in life. My sincere thanks to all of you....Shanda69

        • Hi Shanda69,

          Welcome to the Fabulously 40 site.  You will love it!  The women here are all so friendly and helpful.  I’m sure you’ll get a lot of great advice and information.  

          If you are looking to get out and mix with others, you may want to join a book club or exercise group.  Meeting people who are interested in the same things you are is a good place to start. There is a great site called MEETUP.com.  You can go to the website, sign up and start looking for local groups that meet in your area.  Type in your interests and they will list the groups in your area and how far from you the groups meet.  I just moved to San Diego and joined 4 groups so I could meet new people.  It’s been a lot of fun.  

          If you are looking for work, again, think of things you like to do.  You could volunteer at first at a place you think you would like to work.  A lot of the time, people will hire you if you have volunteered because they know you and can learn a lot about you.  

          You may also be interested in working from home.  That way you can work around your family and their schedules.  I work from home and love it.  Make sure you thoroughly check out any company you go with before doing anything.  Go to the Better Business Bureau at BBB.org.  You can see the company and it’s rating according to the number of complaints filed about the company and the number of resolutions the company has addressed.  For example, my company has an A+ rating and they have even won awards from the BBB for the company’s ethics and standards in their business practices.  

          I hope I have been able to help you somewhat.  Send me a message and let me know if it helped or not.  

          Have a wonderful weekend.

          Best to you,

          Maryann

        • Hi Shanda,

          Maryann gave you some wonderful suggestions, I will only add to check out our members in your area.

          Go to Members (button on top) put your zip code and miles and you can message and connect with them and perhaps go out for a girls night out.

          We just launched local group in SD and are slowing moving to expend.

          Have a great weekend and remember that forty and beyond are the BEST years of your life.
