Hi Susan,

I have been here five years. I lived in Watertown and worked in Eden Prairie. I formerly live in Indiana.

I miss Minnesota tremendously and am a very disgruntled ex pat. Moving from MN to NM has been an economic and personal disaster. We left very high-paying positions in a high quality of life state to live in the Land of Underemployment. My ex-wife got out, living now in Missouri.

I am stuck with a house in Sandia Heights I cannot sell working three contracting jobs to make a little more than 1/2 of what I made in Minnesota. The poor economy only exacerbates the stituation.

Sorry to be so negative about New Mexico, but there are lot of ex pats that would sell their souls to get out.

Thanks for writing back Susan! I just sent you an email with my phone numbers etc. I am so tickled to hear from you! I look forward to a beautiful friendship with you. I think we shall have fun getting to know each other, and sharing memories of Minnesota, as well as our new adopted Albuquerque, that we both love so much!

Hi Susan ! You found MamaCat14 ! Yes, indeed, I am the one who left the comment in the Star Tribune yesterday Nov. 11th ( or 12th ) . I was so glad you made those comments and than wrote back to me. I was born and raised in Minnesota, and lived there most of my life up until November 2004 when we moved to Albuquerque. We live in the SW corner of town near I-40 and 98th St. area. I am glad you made contact with me. I hope we can get to know each other better. I have a lot of medical problems, and I'm on oxygen 24 / 7; but we still get out and go places when we can. My housekeeping is not always company ready, but thats just too bad ! Doesn 't stop me from visitors. We love going shopping and eating out; and traveling when we can. We have two birds, yellow cockatiels, a male named Clyde, and a female named Princess. They are very sweet, and are always sitting on our shoulders when we are home. I love my cats, but my husband won't let me have them anymore. ( Bummer ! ) I'm hoping that someday he melts on that.
Do you have family or friends here that brought you here ? When we moved here, we didn't know anyone except our real estate agent and we were holiday orphans. I always told people that we were up for adoption! They got a big kick out of it. Technically, we still can be ! LOL ! Since we have moved here, I have met a distant cousin who moved here a few years ago, and another one has too, who I have never met yet. Now my son moved here 2 years ago, and just one month ago, my best friend of 41 years just moved here from Reno. But I'm the kind of person who loves collecting new friends, and extended family members. My family never knows who I'm gonna "ADOPT " next. I leave 'em guessing. LOL ! Oh, and if you haven't guessed by now, I love chatting! Anyhow, please write back anytime. Glad you went back to the Trib and found my comment.

Welcome to the Land of Enchantment! I'm not the gal who left the comment on the Strib site, but I'm glad you're here! Where do I have to look if I want to read the comment that brought you to DCF?
