Oh I def think they will be nice neighbors I'm kind of worried about feeling like we can't live like "youngins" though without annoying anyone. DH even got annoyed that Chloe was outside in her jammies. I'm not all about having to all of a sudden be prim and proper and all that yk? I can only imagine what they would think of our "I did not vote for Bush" bumper sticker that was on the car we traded in. DH is all big into not getting super controversial stickers again. Sigh. lol

I have to find a place to get Malachi some xanthum gum today so we can make his muffins. I know I was told some HFS before but this dial up stinks and I can't look. I did a quick search and it looked like everything was in Milwaukee or other far away cities.

I wouldn't worry too much abou them being uptight. Maybe they are and maybe they aren't, but it's Fredonia, not Mequon or River Hills. They won't try to run you out of town.

Unfortunately, I think the only place you can get that stuff is at Outpost in Milwaukee. There's one on Capitol drive. Sorry. We can get it through the co-op too. It won't be until next month that you can order it though, as the Aug delivery is coming on Saturday. Good luck getting it though.

Faithopelove - I totally know what you mean about PO hours and such. I grew up in Appleton (big city with all the amenities any time of day and night) and moved to Saint Cloud almost 2 years ago. I think its totally lame that the PO is closed for lunch hours. Our gas station even closes at 8 PM! What if I need an emergency grocery item??? I also hate driving 20 minutes to the grocery store. I guess that I'll have to put up with it though for living in the wide open country!

Married to DH 7 years and have three fantastic kiddos! DS 6, DD 4, and DS 2 ...... lo and behold another is on the way!

The PO nearest to us doesn't even deliver. We have a mailing address for the next town that will deliver.

LOL! My DH (he grew up here) makes me call it "the falls." I guess that would help distinguish the two, huh? But when I was looking for birth centers before we moved here, I found one in Menomonie and one in Menomonee Falls and I was quite confused.

I'm a summer Wisconsinite. I winter in the tropical sunshine of... Alaska? Talk about frozen tundra.

In the summer I can be found roaming around the Stevens Point area.
