Hey,

Glad to see some other people from the area. I'm on the North End up in Everett, WA. I've never lived in Seattle... always north of it. Grew up in Mountlake Terrace, WA but I now live in Everett with my hubby.

Used to live over there. I was living in an apartment complex called the Renaissance for a while. Glad to get out of that place though... wasn't the nicest of complexes... lots of crime. Now we live in North Everett which is good for my hubby because he's close to the base.

I used to live over there too. I was literally on the edge of (unincorporated) Lynnwood and Mukilteo. Right off of Bev Park road. One side of the road where I lived is considered Muk and the other side is considered Lynnwood. And just down the road was Edmonds, and on the other side was Everett. hehe. Anyway, now I'm over on the Mill Creek side of unincorporated Lynnwood.

I actually grew up part time in Mukilteo. My mom's house was in Edmonds and my dad's was in Mukilteo, near the Kamiak area. Although he moved there before it was built, when that area was still considered Everett!

There are actually quite a few of us here from Snohomish County.

Kind of OT but I actually interviewed to work at the Renaissance in Lynnwood..they did seem to be rather "eh''. Their reviews weren't too great.

Hi,

Welcome to the boards!

Congratulations on your wonderful baby son! My baby is going to be 5 years old this summer, so I don't frequent the baby boards much anymore. But I'm sure you'll find all sorts of great information and people here at MDC!

I am a 40 year old unschooling, belly dancing, artist-mama of one almost 8 year old. I just had brain surgery and blogging.jpg about it a bit because it's just so surreal.

That is a scary area (if that's where the Renaissance is-- it def sounds familiar, but I can't remember). One of those apt buildings back there was in the news recently b/c a couple of drug dealers that were living there dumped a body on the side of I-5 in Mountlake Terrace. Yikes. Not a month later in that same area, some young teen got stabbed (I think it was?) and killed. : So sad.

Tonight DP was telling me that the Taco Bell there was in the news because someone in a stolen car was discovered by the cops while there, and tried to escape. This is all second-hand, but I believe he ran over a police officer (who is apparently okay) and smashed into a wall or something. Weird.

And why I am going on about such horrible things right now, I don't know...

Also, that's too weird about your location! Too bad I don't still live over there, it sounds like we'd have been neighbours. Of course, even now I'm only 5-10 mins away. There's another mama on here that practically lives across the street from me where I'm at now. Like I said, there's lots of Sno County mamas on here.
