Talking Better late than never...

Well, I've been here almost a month now and realized I never really introduced myself properly! I have a tendency to join forums and just jump right into the conversations.

Anyway, so my name is Monica and I am 24yrs old. I live in Calgary, Alberta but once I am done with school I want to move to the west coast. (preferably somewhere on Vancouver Island - in the Victoria/Sooke area) I am currently finishing up my degree in Early Childhood Education in school and also am working part time in a kindergarten with children with special needs. I love kids a lot, but don't have any of my own. (don't plan on having any soon either! hehe) I do have a few fuzzy children though (2 cats and 2 dogs - the dogs live at my parent's house though)

I LOVE cooking and have ever since I was little. I remember always being in the kitchen when my Mom made things. I also really liked cooking with my Grandma and have great memories of that. When I go to visit her (she lives in Nebraska) we like to cook together - she makes THE BEST vegetarian lasagna in the world!

Anyway, I already feel "at home" here but figured it was high time I properly introduced myself - so here you go!

Grumblebee, I've enjoyed your thoughts on things, and am surprised at your age - you're quite wise for 24! I wish you the very best on your continuing education - what a noble profession.

I also must say, I LOVE your new avatar!

Hey grumblebee! Thanks for the introduction! We are glad you've made yourself at home with all of us, happy to have you here.
I'm very impressed with your schooling and career goals. I have two kids of my own, my avatar. Aidan, who is 2 and Callum who is 2 months. We live in Maple Falls, WA and are about 15 minutes from the border. When you come out in this direction, we should meet up and have some coffee. We can invite pds too. She lives down by Seattle, but I'm sure she'd go to great lengths for a cup of coffee. ;) A warm welcome to you!

I'd only drive about 8 miles for a cup of coffee but I could be convinced
to drive all the way to Vancouver to meet both of you and your families!!
