I feel like an introduction is necessary...

...because I've been away for so long!
I'm Michelle...still sorta "new" to the forum as I only registered at the beginning of '06, but I had the opportunity to meet many of you at Shammy's Peep Meet at La Ranita back in April '06. I live in Virginia with my hubby, Adam, and our two children, Malia (my forum name suddenly makes sense, huh??) & Aidan. I work part-time waiting tables at Captain George's which is a local seafood buffet. I love my job...sometimes. Right now I am about 3/4 finished with a Masters in Early Childhood Education...grad school classes and work are both filling my time right now.
I can't believe I have been away from this forum for as long as I have...what was it...like a good month?? In all honesty, I did suffer from some serious post-Playa depression after our vacation. And, besides, that whole thing called REAL LIFE sorta took over...kids, waiting tables, GRAD school...ugh.
Needless to say, I think I need another break in Playa! We will be back in Mexico in March...but we'll be in Cancun for 10 days. Adam, my hubby, and I are going to be in Playa for a few of those days, though...without a doubt. Right now we're trying to figure out whether we can swing a Playa trip sometime before the end of this year (Shammy, oh, Shammy!!!).
Anyway...it's good to be back. I tried logging on last night but the forum was down...I nearly went into convulsions because I had been away for too long. It's good to be back.

I just found out yesterday that I got my job and my Boyfriend has been working there for about a month... we have an apartment all set up and everything now all I have to do is move. I am so excited but scared!!! How is it down there? Can you give me any tips or pointers?? Please feel free to send me a PM or post with any helpful info... I will be living in Portsmouth and working in VA Beach.

Oh, yeah, and nice to meet you here on the forum!!!

Hey,

Good to hear from you. I haven't been around much lately either. Very busy right now.....Hopefully things settle down soon. I am off to Wyoming on July 3rd for 6 weeks so looking forward to not having to work...

I've attached the link below so you can see what it looks like. I bought it from Babies r us, and it folds up so easily....compared to some of the other ones that I looked at. Braydon is 5 mo. now and growing everyday...

Thanks for the link! We're always looking for stuff. I don't think we'll make it to PDC this year, but we're going to Port Aransas on the Texas Coast for sure. Riley loves being outside, so she'll love the wind... just gotta keep her out of the sun!!

OH... thanks for the explanation... I was totally mispronouncing it in my head... sounded more like an asthma condition the way I was reading it!!
