I didn't want to read and not respond, because I know how lonely the tribal areas get when nobody on MDC is in your area... but I'm not in Sac, sorry.

Well this is pretty cool

I have been getting into homesteading recently ( like psychoticaly into it LOL)
We are thinking of buying a chunk of land in Placerville when my husband
gets his settlment check and building our own house!

I would love to connect, even doing the email/IM thingy to
get to know some mammas.

Ive been looking for some mammas who sew, as i am trying to get
the hang of that as well. Btw co-op im not vegetarian but
sometimes the TFoodies and the veggies dont get along, i was
just saying i was open to friendship with all mammas.

I love to talk more about homesteading, I grew up in El Dorado Co. in El Dorado Hills to be exact. I love Placerville

so I'm glad you did.

I'm live in Natomas but am probably moving to midtown this summer. I am 26 and have an 8 yo dd. I work (single mom) and have a B.A. I get bummerd sometimes because most mom's groups are for those with small children and most people at our (albeit wonderful) school are not into natural living. I'm at the Sunday farmer's market most weekends, too. :-)

Briseis of Troy: i know how to sew...i dont do it all the time, but know how to follow the pattern and can make my own stuff when i feel like it...lol...it would be awesome to be able to have a bunch of land to be able to live off of as much as possible...how cool that you have the potential for that...

CaliforniaJenn: is your daughter in public school or homeschooled? we do several park days during the week, and you are more than welcome to come hang out with us... we go to Southside park in downtown sac on mondays about 1030am, if you wanna join us...

CaliforniaJenn, you are going to love living in midtown... which you probably already know and that's why you're moving there, but anyway...

I live downtown, and personally I'd never live anywhere in the area except downtown / midtown! It's everything I want in city life. Often I pass people on the street and think "that looks like someone interesting to know", but I never say anything...

By the way, we still have a couple of spaces in the ALACE doula workshop this weekend, if any of you guys or your friends are interested!

Briseis, do you speak Italian??? I studied in Florence several years ago and sometimes linger at the Italian Importing Company just to hear the old men speak my dearly beloved second language.

do you go to ? Im still somewhat new to the farmers market/csa
dealie. We go to the one near our house sometimes but i'd
be open to going to a new one for sure! Ill definitely send you
an email!

Wendy!
I do speak a little...i am of Italian decent but no where near fluent

California jen, i love children of all ages, and have a nephew
and niece your sons age-they visit me all the time ;D.
What farmers market do you go to?

Monkeygrrl, (love the name btw , my daughters pet name is Monkey :P)
Thats really cool! I am new to sewing and would like to become more
knowledgeable about it, we are having to save for a machine and im
still not sure what kind i want to get. I would like to eventually
make some things and sell them on an online store or something.

And if any of you want to contact me, my personal email is
Briseis_of.Troy@yahoo.com

I like to go to the Davis Farmers Market on Saturday's. They have a great playground for the kids, lots of great food, music, places to sit and eat. I also go to the one near Southside park on Sunday mornings.

CaliforniaJen living in Midtown is the best. We lived there for 4 years till we moved to the Hollywood park area. Great people, great food, and everything in walking distance. My dd is 9 and my other is 6 we should get them together to play sometime.

We should set up a date and all of us get together

I work 8-4:30 so I can't meet during weekdays. Weekends are cool, as are Friday evenings and some weeknights.

I go to the Farmer's Market on 8th and W all year or the one at Cesaer Chavez on Wednesdays during the summer.

And of course, I'm at the co-op at least once a week, if not more. ;-)

Wendy, I have a good friend who lives in Folsom who is from Verona and she loves to speak Italian with people.

On the school issue, my dd goes to Westlake Charter. Overall, I love it. My dd has Spanish everyday, art with a dedicated art teacher several days a week, and the school mandates that every family donate at least 30 hours to the school each year. We may homeschool when she hits middle school but I would love if she got into the Natomas Performing Arts School.

Anyone up for next Friday evening????? Any other suggestions??

Too bad concert in the park hasn't started yet that would be a perfect place to meet. We could meet at a park and have a bbq or I could host at my house although I have to warn that I have a pool so that might be a problem. We could always bbq in the front yard to keep the kids out of the back yard. I have lots of space

Let me know what you think

So I'm guessing it's just co-op mama and me? If so, co-op mama, we can meet at the park, if you like.

No it's not a problem We can meet at the park Land Park it has a really nice play structure the older kids might get a little bored but if they have each other to play with they should be ok.

I open to meet at another park that's closer to either of you. I will drive.

Do we want to have food or just meet to talk and let the kids play?

Hmm... Land Park... we might show up. I was kind of assuming I wouldn't be able to go to anything in Sacramento since I don't drive, but I have to go to Sac City within the next two weeks for some paperwork anyways, so perhaps Friday will be a good time to do that

I assumed we'd have it in the evening, as Jen works and Briseis is bringing her husband. What about you two? That was part of the reason I offered up my house. If it's nice meaning no rain the park will work and if we want to do food we can BBQ

Eveningish works for me (assuming I can make it at all - I haven't discussed it with my husband yet, but I don't really see why it would be a problem). The office is apparently open till 5, so I can do what I need to later in the day. My husband may or may not be there, but I expect I can talk him into at least coming to pick us up. Monkeygrrl, Leif will love it if your 4 year old is there
