Ha, I bet Sara was glad they had Levi with them in MN when she got busted. They said they arrested her after a long investigation. I can just imagine those orders sitting on someones desk: "I'm not going to do it, YOU do it." "Uh uh, I'm not doing it, YOU do it."

Seems I'm going to have to go do some news hunting to see what y'all are talking about.



Next time I decide to do sewing for Christmas, I need to start in July and not have last minute ideas. I decided spur of the moment to make Autumn a skirt and shirt for Sunday, but have it be a surprise, which means I have to sew when she's not around (ie asleep), which means being up late getting it done. And we got a new fleece horse panel in at work this last week (Autumn's in love with horses), and Autumn's been asking for a new fleece blanket for months now, so I have a blanket to make, too. At least that one isn't needed until Christmas, so I have a few days to do it. And Natalie has a stomach bug, so she's on the couch, which means I'm sleeping on the floor when I finally make it to bed. Which means Andrew is going to be grumpy in the morning. Anyone else's husband get annoyed for things like that?

But please don't ask people to debate whether Anchorage (or any city, really) is a big town or a small town. The mud starts slinging! We all have strong preferences, it seems.

Boy, I wish we had easy access to raw milk in Anchorage. I just can't swing a drive out to the valley. Heck, I can't even manage East Anch.

Busymommy,
You can get raw milk in Anchorage!
Our farmer has several people in Anchorage that drive out to his farm every week to get milk for their co-ops.
PM me, and I will give you the Byers phone #.

I currently live in Pelican, pop about 70. I think I get to call this a small town without argument
I am comfortable with a variety of sizes, but this place is a bit too small for me to want to stay here, or raise my kids here.




ETA, I've been trying to think of sig phrases that will get people to click (and discover the HH thread). Do you like my latest?

I do not know any of the other co-op heads, except the one we got milk through in the valley, untill I took over my own group.

Claire, I also just learned of you being the owner of Birch Tree Baby. Susie told me. That's terrific! I've been on your website many times and have learned a lot. I would really like to support Alaskan businesses. I hope to be able to order from you someday.

I'm glad to know that people do get raw milk in Anchorage. We've been considering moving next summer so that my husband doesn't have such a long commute. I'd miss the milk terribly though! It's really doing so much for us healthwise. It'd be a huge step for us, though, especially with a brand new baby and grandparents in the Valley, but driving two hours a day isn't worth it.

It was for us. We really love living in the Valley. We just moved from Eagle River. My husband's commute is longer, but we've felt it is totally worth it. I will say that my husband has some flexibility in his schedule and leaves early and returns early to avoid the worst part of rush hour and if the weather/road conditions are too bad, he can usually work from home for at least part of the day, so that definitely helps.

Hi Everyone,
Seems like with HSing and hockey going on this winter I never get to MDC anymore.

Can I gripe about hockey! The FBKS youth hockey thing is just appalling. Twice a week is killing all our free time and the older kids go three times a week for five months long! I'm so sleep deprived w/o a weekend morning to sleep in. DD loves it though. It's so frustrating because there doesn't seem to be a league for slacker hockey parents. The rec leagues spend just as much time on the ice as the comp teams too.

Anyway, I'm happy about solstice, nighttime driving is really getting under my skin this year.
