hi from another Georgian! Ok, I'm not originally but it's where I am now. Welcome to MDC! I don't post on much on here but I lurk a lot. Lots to take in. I hope you get as much inspiration from these mamas as I have!

What part of GA are you in? I am in Monroe, kinda near Athens, where UGA is. Be sure to check out the Finding your Tribe section of this forum, hopefully you will be able to find some MDC mamas that are close to where you live. That's how I met a very good friend of mine.

we're in conyers just east of atl.....i grew up down in south ga wayyyyy in the sticks.

you're right....there's a lot of good advice here. i'll definitely be hanging around the fitness and weight management threads because that's the one area of my life that i seem to have no control over.... looking forward to getting to know you all better! :

Hi! We're from Stone Mountain. I lived in Conyers once.
I'm a SAHM with ds 3 and dd 2. I want to homeschool, so maybe I'll run into you some here and there.

Awesome! I go to LLL meetings about once a month in Athens...I LOVE that town. We should meet up sometime.....then there's a really cool park in Loganville that we could all meet at too. Only problem is we only have one working car right now, so I'm not as free to come and go as I'd like to be....but sometimes i drop dh off at work if i have something to do. I'm definitely up for meeting new friends.....

I have thought about going to a LLL meeting, but haven't quite made it there yet? Do you like that group? They meet on the 3rd Tuesday each month, right?

We have only one car too. I had to sell my Jeep because it was killing us on gas. I take DH to work and sometimes its a pain, but it sure beats having two car payments . . . and two tanks to fill.

I am super excited to meet other Mamas so we will definitely have to get together. Just let me know whats good for you. I am pretty flexible.
