Oh cool! How do you want to do this? I could pick it up or we could meet somewhere, like KP mall. Whatever you want to do

We could meet at the play place in KP? I guess i'll bring the kefir in a jar. Do you know how to prepare it?

Ps. I grew up in Transcona went to Wayota, Murdoch and KE for Cosmotology.

I can probably just google how to prepare it, right?
Play place sounds good. Keeps DS busy if I get there first!

I actually grew up in BC and moved here when I was 18 I didn't go to school here at all but I lifeguarded at the YMCA in EK, and at almost all the city pools. lol. Maybe I've seen you there or taught your kids swimming lessons and we didn't even know it.

LOL 7 oaks was my home pool!! And North Centennial was our sister pool so I was mostly at those 2 pools. Oh and KP outdoor pool in the summer. I LOVE that pool. I love what they've done with the place now.

I only worked at the Y for one year though. Back in 05 while I was still just engaged. They don't pay well a the Y. lol.

I have kicked a lot of people out of seven oaks. Lol. What was the story? Maybe I'll remember. And how long ago? I quit summer of '08 while I was pregnant, and went on mat leave

This is too funny. lol.

I'm so over winter already! Thankfully today was warmer than the what it was earlier this week... but if this -20C w/-30C windchills crap keeps up, it's going to be a very looooooooooooooong winter. I'm just glad DS2 is able to get around in the snow and enjoy it this year instead of screaming at the top of his lungs every time he gets put in the snow.


Mama to my 3 wild things.

Well I heard it was supposed to be a more mild winter... but with more snow than usual. I can handle that. Shovelling is good exercise and I hate the cold!

 Hope baby comes soon. I dunno what that's like. My baby came 6 days early. Even though I fully expected to go late.

 This snow is killing me! in my head spring was just around the corner and I was already planning the garden!  We have a small/medium yard that becomes a yard only for our dogs in the winter, so that's all good, but the snowbanks around our entrance and down our driveway are way taller than my 2 year old! they're probably about 5 feet high!

Hey all! I'm from the 'Peg too!

 

For you pregnant mamas out there, I offer placenta encapsulation services! This could go for you wymyn who also still have a placenta in your freezer... Someone told me once that they encapsulated their placenta after it was in the freezer for five years, and it still worked wonders!

 

Also, like Lia_&_Eva's_Mama, I also would love to live off grid! We're thinking of moving out to the Grand Beach area, building a cob house, and buying a geo-dome greenhouse. :D Oh, and there must be goats!

 


I'm a queer, poly, pagan, (dis)abled, crazy, crunchy, intersectionally-minded feminist. fsonj & I are mamas to our unschooled/freeschooled 12yo & 3yo!  (Ask me about co-breastfeeding, supplementing at the breast, inducing lactation, eating placentas, undisturbed birth, and parenting a genderqueer child with Aspergers!)

I sure hope so, bcblondie. :) If you're looking for help in that area, I can suggest some herbs/supplements for you. I also highly suggest going to Dr. Shaoli Shi (Traditional Chinese Medicine). She's a miracle worker!!

Thank you for teh tips. :) I'm on clomid now which has worked for me in the past, so. Just hoping that'll work again. If not I'll be willing to try other things. :) I very much like herbs. :) (helped me avoid need misoprostol after my missed miscarriage.)
