I think Ruthla will fit in fine anywhere on MDC, or should I say everywhere? It seems that every time I start hanging out in a new forum, Ruth is already there. I don't think she sleeps. Ever. She is omni-MDC!

Trust me, I sleep plenty!

It's more that, when I'm awake, I'm likely to take lots of breaks when I'm working and check out MDC at least every hour for a few minutes at a time.

She spent a LOT of time in the "1,231 by 12/31" thread, which morphed into "3,112 by 12/31" and then "8002 by 2008"!

So, the verdict's still out?

Good to meet you, Ruth

I doubt I ever introduced myself when I rejoined. But I'm disorganized like that :

So, anyway, Welcome to MDC

I have retired from administration work, so if you have a question about anything MDC-related, please contact Cynthia Mosher. Thanks!

So glad you finally decided introduce yourself!

Well, I can't imagine sleep fitting anywhere in the picture. I too was on the original MDC board. I have been here for what does that make it, 9 or 10 years now (???). I used to be a moderator here. Was very active. How you got to 33,000+ I have no idea!?!! When you are ready to share the secret to no-sleep, I hope you'll share it at MDC first LOL.

I'm pro-adoption reform, but not anti-adoption.

I'm no longer breastfeeding or cloth diapering anybody or cosleeping with any of my (not so) little ones, but I do snuggle with the 6yo before bed and first thing in the morning most days.

I mostly follow a Traditional Foods diet, although my kids' diets have lots of room for improvement. I try to minimize how many disposable products I use- we use cloth napkins, washable rags for cleaning, cloth grocery bags, etc.

I think I'm going to fit right in on MDC! :
And it only took 30,000 + posts to day 'Hi'
