Yeah, that snow was crazy. My DH was up in Minnesota (20 miles from Canada) on business yesterday and he was really hoping for some snow up there so that he could test drive a snowmobile at Polaris. He was shocked when I told him that we had snow down here. He should have just stayed here
You mentioned Polaris--I really need to go shopping there. Ok, I don't need to, but I want to because I want to go to The Gap, since the one at the mall here closed. So many things have closed up around here that I wish were still around...Ruby Tuesday...TGIFridays...and some others I cannot think of at the moment. Argh. It's so depressing to go to Ontario anymore. Do you come to that part of town often?
I didn't even know that The Gap had closed. It's been a couple of years since I went to the mall. I do head over that way when I really need a certain store or if I'm craving some Greek food. Every time I go over that way I'm surprised at how many things have closed. We were there a couple weeks ago and I was shocked to see that Michaels and Pier 1 had closed. When I was in high school, Ontario was always getting something new and it was the place to be. I guess that was about 15 years ago
Have you lived in Mansfield for a long time?
I hardly go to the mall here. Its so small I hardly find it worth going to unless I really need something from there. Funny I say this since I am planning to go there today. Lol. Growing up in the city with 50 malls to choose from tends to make you a little picky when you move to a smaller town and have fewer resources. Ha ha.
Oh, and I really miss Pier1 too. Loved that store!!!
It's funny when I go back home to C-bus and see all that has built up or changed. I mention a change to my parents and they are like, 'Oh yeah, that's been gone for months'. It's crazy how fast things come and go.
I've lived in Mansfield since Summer of 2004, but yet it feels like so much longer. I'd like to move somewhere else (out of the state or country), but I just don't ever see us actually moving too far from Mansfield. At least I moved out of Columbus like I always wanted to. So I should be grateful about that at least right? Ha ha. Beggars can't be choosers they say.
I've been looking for someone in the Wooster area for quite a while. My husband works over in Wooster and that's the area we tend to go to for shopping and doctors. Are you involved in the Local Roots Market? We went there for the first time last weekend and I was pretty impressed.

I imagine so! If you had the opportunity to go back there, would you?
I would definitely take another year or two and live in another country, but I would want it to be somewhere different and preferably English speaking this time
I imagine living in a foreign country and not being familiar with the language could pose some issues. I think if I ever moved to a spanish speaking country I would do ok--I love learning foreign languages. But Asian languages seem like that would be really difficult to catch on to. I wish I took some language classes like those in college, but never did. Oh well.
I always threaten my husband that I am going to move to Canada to live--they have a lot of things I like. Cooler weather, hockey and Tim Hortons. Ha ha. Oh well. It's good to have a dream.
For those of you looking to meet like-minded mamas in the Mansfield area:
I just wanted to let you know that the final plans are being completed to start a chapter of "Holistic Mom's Network" in the Mansfield area!
First meeting in early Feb, 2011.... I'll post more specific details within the next week :)
Hello there! I'm about 15 minutes from Mansfield, OH and I'm definitely interested in meeting up with like-minded parents. There are so few of us in this area! I am 30 and I have a 2.5 yr old daughter and am expecting baby #2 in August. I will be moving to Canton in Jan/Feb, but my whole family is near the Bucyrus/Mansfield area. Oh, and I am still looking for a homebirth midwife (already have a doula).
