I'd join BaBa at Mimi's house. Then, probably head to southeast asia. I'd like to go somewhere I've never been. There are plenty of places on that list, but I'd like to see it while I can (before NK starts WW3).

Cupcake- I agree that you should go to Europe now and meet a nice European guy. When I did my study abroad, one of the other American girls went to Italy once every couple of weeks and fell in love with a new guy. It would take her a few days to get back to school. Sounds flaky, but it was very romantic.

Ooh, I love Vermont! Spent a couple of summers there as a kid (summer camp). The green mountains are stunning, and every town is so quaint. They fight vigorously to keep it that way.

:

I want to go to South America. Chile or something, it looks interesting and exotic to me for some reason. Don't know if I would be able to go though, would love too.
Mexico seems fine, we are planning to go to Cancun next summer
Can't wait, to go to those beautiful Mexican beaches, my mom is Mexican, but she's not coming with us

DH wanted to go to Madrid this summer but heck, there's no extra money and I don't feel like traveling 8 hours with DS on a plane yet. His parents are disappointed. Sorry MIL and FIL lol.
DH lived in France until he was 8 years old, in Nord Pas de Calais or something like that. I don't know if I spelled that correctly He lived in a very very small and rural like town there and I love to listen to the stories of his childhood. Very European (well duh lol).
Wish DS could experience something like that, but that won't happen. DH moved here for a reason

I met DH here in America so you have to keep your eyes open BFF

My sister is here with her DH, 5 year old DD, 3 year old DS and and 4 month old DD And my brother is coming aswell, I love to have all the family together.
Which reminds me that I would love to have another baby, a little girl. Heck I even have the name for her.
I feel much better, I guess it was just a day thing, but it was enough to ruin it.
We don't really celebrate the 4th, yeah call us idiots

Question for our Canadian friends...Do you consider yourselves American? I realize we're all part of North America, but I've always heard the distinction between Americans (people from the U.S.) and Canadians.

The reason I ask is that at the fireworks display tonight, I joked with DH that the woman singing "God Bless America, our home sweet home" was Canadian singer, Celine Dion. But then it dawned on me, maybe Canadians are Americans, too!

Soooo....What do you think? Do you consider yourselves Candians only? Just curious...

Hey mamas

I am back! My aunt just left for the airport so I am a bit sad now, I really don't do goodbyes very well. I hope you are all OK? I'll try and read up to see what I have misses but I am not sure if I will get around to it. We had a lot of fun! Apart from the dental operation my aunt did here because it is soooooo much cheaper here, but it didn't hurt afterwards so we still had fun.

I saw you are talking about where you want to travel and I honestly feel it is alright to stay put. I don't necessarily enjoy vacations in the classic sense, and besides we have most wonderful weather here right now.

I agree that staying at home is a great idea sometimes. We are sticking closer to home this year. Saving for Bean and enjoying local sites.
post #646 of 1378
And welcome back! Sorry you are missing your Aunt.

No, I consider myself Canadian. Though, I've been told that I do not have a Canadian accent.

I'd love to meet a nice European guy. I melt at foreign accents, like French or Italian. I also love a British accent

hi there, i followed this over from the lonely mamas thread. I am so friggin lonely. I know a lot of people where we live, but I just can't connect with anyone, they only get together to go to bars or develop friendship according to popularity (its worse than high school!) and I guess I am more on the "hippie" side (whatever that means anyways) so I am too crunchy for regular people. I have no friends other than my dh. I miss being around women (I don't even have a mom to talk to) My best friend is so crazy anymore I can't identify with her anymore, and I started a job to be social with a lot of people my age and I just don't get invited to do anything! (maybe because I have kids they assume I can't have a social life) I don't mean to post a rant about feeling sorry for myself but I am just so fed up with being friendless, sorry for the rant, but I need some support!

Welcome! I get you, mama! While I meet and know lots of people, I am always the "weird one". I am sorry you did not find any friends at your AP group. This thread can be a lot of fun though when you get to know everyone here, so I hope you enjoy posting here!

Oh, and can I have your input about the following, mamas? While my aunt was over, a wet patch showed up on the bathroom wall, and a day later the wooden floor in the living room started "bending upwards", after which the wood started coming out. Totally unrelated problems at the same time, pretty expensive. I am renting, so called landlady to sort it out. Four different plumbers/carpenters came and they all said it was due to bad construction - leak in the wall and the glue holding the floor together stopped working. Of course, the landlady then proceeded to blame me and told me I should pay for it all to get fixed. Her father came to see me, and we finally agreed that indeed, this is NOT my fault. A day later she asked me to pay again. People here tend to become nasty when they have to pay for stuff. I foresee ongoing unpleasantness. I HATE the idea of having to move but I don't like this either. Plus, the police still has to come to my house to confirm I live here, so that I can get my son's birth certificate. My DD would not adjust well to moving either . OTOH, the rent prices have probably gone down now, because of the recession, so I could find a bigger place for less money. WWYD?

How are you today???


Welcome LoBleusMama *hugs, DS joins too*

I know what you mean, I've always been the weird one of the group. When we moved to Phoenix it was worse, I had no friends at all. Unleast back in Boulder I had my own little group of weirdo friends I still keep in touch with them, but it's sooo different right now becuase any of them are parents, and it's difficult to relate.
I try to talk with DH's female co workers, or the wives of his friends but heck, we are way too different. I'm a hippie mamma Welcome to the club

Tell us more about yourself mamma
Hobbies??? are you a SAHM or a WAHM or something?

Thanks, BFF I'm doing okay. I've been losing weight recently (7 lbs) and I kind of wish I didn't reveal it as my grandma said "There goes your seven pounds!" We were at a wedding reception and I was having hors d'oeuvres. I danced like a maniac though!

I'm proud of my accomplishment so far!
post #657 of 1378
And rightly so BFF:
Congratulations!!!!


As I said my sister is visiting us with her family, so we have a house full and my so very curious 5 year old niece Avril, is asking me what I'm doing as I type:
"Auntie what are you doing?"
*explains to dn*
"HIIIIIIIII"

so she says hi to you BFF and to all of you mammas

We absolutely do NOT consider ourselves American, or remotely American in any shape or form.

Our national character is drastically different, largely due to our history. America was born out of revolt, revolution and the frontier, while Canada grew slowly out of colonialism into independence while still honouring and maintaining our British political heritage. Did you know that Queen Elizabeth remains our sovereign and Head of State?

True, Canadians (and the rest of the world) are heavily influenced my American media and culture. It is also very easy to be overshadowed when your neighbour is a major super power. But I don't think Canadians mind at all. That's just who we are.

Canadians are much more knowledgeable about America than Americans are about us. I guess Americans feel we don't matter?

It is very funny that Celine Dion sang the national anthem. I don't think that would ever happen here. Last year, there was a big hullabaloo in Quebec (by separtists, really) that Paul McCartney sang at the 400th Anniversary and he didn't even sing the national anthem. They just didn't think it was appropriate the Brit participate in the event.
