Sandbox - I have mine covered by a tarp held down with some bricks. Seems to do the trick

Ruth - that sounds cool. Hope you both score!

Awesome Colleen!

Bday parties - miles only has 9 kids in his class this year and there is a limit of 15 in the 4 year old classes next year. I think in elementary school there is a limit of 25! 34 A LOT of kids. Is it mixed ages? What about the kids that are his age and the ones he plays with most?

So far I've always included my friends and their kids in his bday parties, but I think I'm finished with that now.

Ok, so Miles has this horribly annoying habit of as he wakes up in the morning he starts flicking my nipple ((this has been going on since he was a baby) I HATE it and immediately stop it but he does it every morning. This morning I told him it wasn't nice to play with my body and it was MY body and he wasn't allowed to touch without my permission. He looked at me and said, "but mom, I like to play with your bod.".

For some reason I am not seeing your pictures here, Colleen. Sad I'll try to refresh in a minute. So is that everything finished in your kitchen now? :woohoo:

Birthday parties - we usually just have family. BUt last year we invited her Sunday School class. This year we will probably go back to just family. Actually I can't imagine planning a party at all right now, but C is talking about "being 4" and having a party already. :roll:

I know I sound like a broken record, but I am so tired. Four and a half weeks to go...

And although I cleaned for hours yesterday, my house is a wreck. A BIG wreck.

Oh, I meant to say, Ruth, that sale does sound great! So it is new things? That is neat! At the consignment sale, people pull wagons. You could take a wagon to put your bags in and for Noelle to sit in if she got tired of walking around...?

And Mel, sorry you are on your own again. Sad

How are you feeling about things today, Nicole?

How about you, Kelly? What time is your appointment?

Cristina, I'm glad you are getting your lump checked out again.

:bigarmhug: to all of you!

Morning!

Colleen your kitchen looks AMAZING! Love the backsplash Smile

Ruth, that sale sounds great. Hope you have lots of luck.

Mel, hope the time DH is gone goes quickly.

Kelly, thinking of you.

Me, I'm nervous. I know that I cannot do anything, but I'm still nervous. I'm trying to put it out of my mind and not worry too much until there is something definitive to worry about. Its hard. I really want to take a couple of days off work to digest this, but I'm afraid that I might be missing some serious work time in the near future and so I'm here. I also think that it helps to have the distraction, even if I would rather be at home.

Just had to vent about it a bit. Thanks for listening!

Good luck today Kelly and Nicole -thinking about you!

Hi guys,
Both Karina and I are both sick, bad coughs. She went off to daycare though I thought she was pretty sick this morning so she went to my ob appt with me instead of straight to daycare. So the ob referred me to a breast clinic and I will be getting a fine needle aspiration Feb 16th, same day as the next ob appt. My doctor said it's very likely benign but she wanted to rule anything out. The doctor who examined me initially said it was just fibrous and didn't feel the need to follow up (this was before i was pregnant). So now I am doing this just to be safe.

Colleen-your kitchen looks great! I love the backsplash, so creative!

Kelly-good luck today. KUP.

Hugs to Ruth, Mel and Nicole.

I'm not getting tea time today. And I foresee a meltdown in my future.
Abigail slept all of 50min in the car while I picked up Jax, ran to the bank and the post office. 50MIN!!!!! She was up an hour and half early this morning, has been IMPOSSIBLY grumpy and sleeps 50 minutes. Jax isn't napping today, even though on our way home, he told me "I'm so ready for my nap, momma."
I'm exhausted, short on patience and can't stand the pile of dishes staring at me.

Well, I don' think it's morbid, I think it's human. BUT proceed with caution.
I don't know how it is in CA, but in the US, *most* policies carry a wait period clause, usually 90days where if you are dx'd with a termnal illness it voids the new policy. Did you look into this? You'll want to make sure that they will just not honor the increase, instead of writing a whole new policy with a new start date.

Dang, I multi-quoted so I could make the new thread, but now have no idea what I was going to respond to. Let me see how I do...

Emily ms - So glad the tarp works for you! That's what I did in the beginning, but the sun melted it. Sad It's impossible to keep anything outside here without the sun destroying it.

How annoying with the nipple! That would make me crazy, I'd punch DH if he did that, can't imagine Pax doing it!

Coll - the kitchen looks FANTASTIC!! Do you love it?

Sorry you're so tired Candace. Sad I can't even imagine.

Yes Ruth, that sale sounds amazing, I would love it!! I hope you scored a lot! I'd love the info on the cauliflower too. Smile

Kelly - I'm just getting online for the first time today. No names set in stone yet. His middle name will be Wayne (my dad's name), so we'll work with that. The name of the week is Jude Wayne S... but I'm not convinced it fits. Ideas anyone?

Have fun in SD Kelly, totally jealous of your meet-up! My BFF will be there that week too, I had joked with her about stowing away and camping in her room, but she didn't think that was a great idea! lol

Jan - so sorry you're losing your doc. Sad That's so sad when it's someone you're really comfortable with.

I hope you're feeling better Cristina! It's so hard to be sick while preggo. I'm glad you're getting your lump checked too, you can never be too safe. So sorry about the lay-offs too, that's so tough. Sad

Sorry for the awful day Mel. I had that day earlier this week. Just.wanted.it.OVER.

Congrats Auntie Karrie!! I love newbies!! They're so cuddly and perfect!

Another busy day today here. Pax had a complete and total meltdown at drop-off this morning. The worst one to date. *sigh* It was so weird, he was completely fine this morning. Excited for school, talking about all the things he was going to do, couldn't wait to show off his new spider-man t-shirt, etc. Fine all the way to school. The minute I parked and opened his door, he FLIPPED out. "NO, NO, I don't want to go in. NO! I'm shy! I'm scared! I can't go!" and on and on. I had to physically carry him into the house, carry him to his chair, pry his arms off my neck and leave while he was screaming at his teacher that he wanted to go home. :confused: She called about 10 minutes later and asked me to come get him because she couldn't calm him down. I had an appointment at 10 (this was at 9:25), so I got someone to cover for me and went back to get him. By the time I got there, an aide pulled me aside and said that he was FINALLY calm and that she thought it would be fine for me to go. Ugh. His teacher keeps reassuring me that this can be common, it happens to a lot of kids, etc. but I'm wondering if I should get some professional help. Do you think a counselor could help him learn how to deal with his anxiety or would that be overreacting? Is 3 too early to worry?

Other than that, the day was good. We had a MOMS Club meetup which I ended up making it to and we had a great turnout. We've had trouble getting people to attend events, so this was really nice, we even had a few new members show up. Then we ran a bunch of errands after school. I must've properly tired them out because they're both napping, yay!

Wendy. True story. Are you ready for it? When Jax started preschool at the pre-school, not the mom's day out program, he was 2 1/2. It was in Oct. Every.Single.Morning he cried, Every.Single.Morning I left peeling his arms off my legs. They suggested I try the circle drop-off in the morning, that some kids have an easier time getting out of the car and leaving mom, than mom leaving them. This was Freudianism psychobabble. Didn't work, but it was convenient, so we stuck with the drop off. So, after like 3 months of this I was just done. On the way to school, I just calmly told him, we are going to school, this happens twice a week, you have fun, I am always there to get you when all the other moms come to get all your friends. All this crying and fit pitching at drop off stops today. You are a big boy (he really wasn't) Jaxon and these fits every morning are just un-necesssary. Do you understand what mommy is saying? He nodded yes. We are waiting in line for our turn at drop off and I just keep repeating this. It's his turn and the director opens the door to get him, he turns to me says 'bye mum-mum', puts his arms out for her to pick him up out of the car and he went and stood in line. She gave me a look, and I just said. "we had a talk this morning, and if I had known that was all it was going to take, I would have done it a long time ago."

Hello All I am "home" at my moms waiting for Dh to arrive.

It went well.. I am rather sore and achy right now hot damn that is a big needle! She took 12 samples.
according to the Dr she said to her it looks benign.. fibroid likely.. but it might be atipia which means not cancer YET but over time could turn cancerous.. they remove those. I should hear on Wed sometime as late at 7:30pm. I have a hematoma under the skin (blood) so I will have extensive bruising.. the location is near the nipple but to get to it they had to go in from below and not deep as to not knick the chest wall.. so it was far.. almost the whole length of the breast. So yeah lots of bruising there too... too tylenol and have an ice pack on it.

Anyway my mom has offered to take Everly tomorrow to give me a day off.. I have not accepted yet but I am thinking a day on the couch watching movies sounds nice. I don't know.. hard to just

Miles's little legs are so short that I think they'd just be pants on him (I'll have to measure) but they look like the comfort he demands!

wendy....sarah cried and clung onto me preschool(4) , kindergarten and 1st grade......finally the 2nd week of 2nd grade, all my talks must have finally "clicked".......and she never had an ounce of anxiety again......this was at the same school and i remember drop offs being absolutely exhausting......when she was in 1st and max was in preschool..max would just walk to his line like a big boy and i would have to stand with sarah, walk her to class and deal with it everyday...........seperation anxiety at it's worst......good luck
and yes, i LOVE my kitchen!!!!! thanks!!!!!

:bigarmhug: Kelly...praying that everything turns out just fine.

:bigarmhug: to you ladies for me just posting a hug instead of reading back and realizing what is really going on.

News:
1. We close on the house tomorrow at 9 a.m.
2. Grace has thrown up three times today. Twice tonight..once all over me....I'm hoping this isn't going to be an all night thing...it's been 1 1/2 hours since the last time.
3. MIL is taking the morning off to stay with Grace and then most likely I"ll have to call into school to get my 1/2 day sub extended to a full day. And then that means having to redo sub plans since I only left plans to get through the first three bells.

fun times ahead

Wendy- can I chime in on Pax?

Alex recently went thru this at daycare. It sounds like what Alex felt, except Alex was puking instead of crying. I think it is/was separation anxiety. I did quite a bit of reading and it really sounded like what was going on. Similar story, sound be fine all morning or night before- talk about what he was looking forward to, then panic when it was drop off time.

It honestly took all of January to get it better. I decided to really down play his puking or crying. Act like that was normal. We together came up with 3 steps for drop off (think Agent Oso style). 1) hug and kiss 2) say I love you 3) say bye bye. We started talking about the 3 steps in the car and then when we got there we did them and I left right quick. Like pulling off a bandaid, he did much better when there was a plan and it was quick.

Separation anxiety or school phobia- my sister did this in kindergarten. Crying and stomach pains before school. My mom would actually drop her off and go sit in the car and cry. she did eventually get over it, but it was a tough few months for my mother and her.

The best thing (I think) is to just keep pushing thru and making him go, down play his behavior (the crying) and make sure he knows that you will always be there to pick him up at the end of the day. On the other hand, it is possible he is just too young for preschool yet and then maybe its time to pull him out of school and try again in the fall? This really wasnt an option for me, since it was daycare, but I cant say I didnt wish it was optional!

Alex is doing much better now. No tears or puking over day care or at daycare. It did take about a month to work thru, and it was so hard to watch him struggle. I honestly dont think its something that needs professional help, I really think its part of growing up and learning to be away from mom. Its up to you to decide if its time now or if that time can wait- and only you can decide that for your family. Of course its easier to keep him home and them its gone away, but thats no guarantee it wont be back again next year or in 2 years when Kindergarten starts, you know? I guess thats what Ive got for you- mostly just wanted you to know that it isnt just Pax and it sounds very normal to me. Good luck to you!!

Oh my. That sounds terrible. I hope you recover well AND that it turns out to be a benign lump. It just sounds to invasive. Wow. Hope you are able to sleep tonight (due to pain AND nerves!!)

Kelly- ((hugs)) Glad the initial exam looks benign. I'm sorry you will be sore. Did you get a "fine needle aspiration"? That's what I will be getting in 2 weeks so I want to know if it's the same thing. I hope the final results remain benign....I hope you feel better soon.

Mel- the clothes are cute. Why do some of the monsters look familiar? Did he have other clothes with monsters like that?

Also Mel, yes, I would say my job is precarious. Not thinking though I will be "laid off" but "fired." My boss has written me up already once, then we had a follow up conference call and another one....I just can't seem to please her and my opinions on what to do in situations differ from hers so she sees it as poor judgment rather than a different viewpoint. So I really don't know how much longer I will be here, but my last day before mat leave is March 16th.

Kelly, OUCH! What a relief that they think it's benign - hopefully it'll just be confirmed! My sister has had a few benign lumps removed (not sure why, maybe it was the 'pre-cancer' thing you mentioned) and I think her recovery was pretty easy. I vote that you take it easy tomorrow!!

Colleen, LOVE LOVE LOVE the kitchen!!! The backsplash is awesome! Totally makes the room. Biggrin Love it!

Jan, I'm still sad that we're losing our pedi. Sad I hope you find a new doc that you love.

Candace, :bigarmhug: I hope you are able to get some rest!!!!

Wendy, I remember Mel's story about Jax and the drop off - hopefully you'll have a really quick change of heart from Pax like that somehow. :bigarmhug:

Asparagus: I loosely used this recipe - http://allrecipes.com/recipe/roasted-garlic-cauliflower/detail.aspx Changes: 425 oven for 25 minutes and then covered for another 12 or so - we did this so it would be soft enough for the boys to eat (poor Brian still only has 4 teeth! lol). Since it was such a big hit, I'll probably use 2 heads of cauliflower next time and actually put the broiler on for the last few minutes like they recommend. I forgot the parsley - oops - but added some different spices. Also just put the cauliflower/oil/garlic in a bowl to mix and not a bag... I had my DH get some more tonight and plan on making more tomorrow! yum!

Cristina, I'm glad you're getting your lump checked out even though it sounds like they're pretty sure it's benign. Always nice to just make sure! So sorry about all the work problems. Sad You mentioned before becoming a SAHM after #2 is born - is that still a possibility?

I swear, these boobs just seem like more trouble than they're worth sometimes!

Cute clothes, Mel!! Are we going to see any modeling pics? Smile

I am so tired. So the resale shop that does this bag sale actually has two locations. It was a tough call deciding which location to go to first, because one location has better clothes but also a MUCH bigger crowd. We chose the better clothes location... and we chose poorly. Sad Normally these bag sales are all women and maybe 2 or 3 men. At the first location, there were several men and people were basically just grabbing as many clothes as they could and then going off into a corner to sort and then roll the clothes they were keeping. The racks where they keep Al's size had THREE items left on them by the time we walked in 5 minutes after they opened (there was a long line outside but we didn't want to put our kids through that). I did find some things for me and Noelle, though, but not enough to fill a bag. Any item not in a bag is 75% off. So I spent $14 and then we went to the other location where we hit the jackpot! I just wish we had gone there first. So this is what we got:

DH got - 2 suits, 7 pairs of pants, 3 dress shirts, 1 nice corduroy jacket.

They're starting to sell baby/toddler clothes again! Unfortunately it was pretty cleaned out, but I did get 4 pairs of pants for the boys and 2 shirts - one of which was a super cute plaid Janie and Jack.

For Noelle - 5 pairs of pants and 1 skirt. We also got about 6 silk Christmas scarves - she was playing with them while i shopped and wanted to keep them and they stuffed in the bag easily.

For me - 3 pairs of pants, 5 casual shirts, 12 nicer shirts/sweaters, and 3 cashmere sweaters! Smile

Lots of good brands (Brooks Bros, J. Crew, Ann Taylor, Gap, Banana Republic, Timberland, etc.). Several NWT. DH also scored on a brand new pair of pants by 'Berle.' Ever hear of that brand? It's all tailored by hand, apparently. The downside is that I'm going to have to 'sew' the hem because it was left unfinished. I'll probably just use those iron-on things.

Soooo, we spent a grand total of $64 and got 45 pieces of clothing (and a bunch of scarves ;). I'm so glad they're starting to sell baby/toddler clothing again! Once that catches on, that will be HUGE for us, especially the boys.

Because of all the time it took going to 2 different locations, etc., we ended up doing fast food for lunch. Gag. Noelle had her very first Happy Meal - but it almost doesn't even count because we all ate in the car and DH forgot to give her the box it comes in. And I think he acccidentally threw the toy away. She only ate a few fries and not quite half of the hamburger. And I had my first diet coke in more than 2 years! I wasn't missing a thing, either! lol DH had an eye appt so I put all 3 kids down for a nap by myself and then as soon as he got home I taught a piano lesson and then put all 3 kids to bed by myself so DH could get on the treadmill. I am so tired.

Since I know I'm not going to have two hands free tomorrow, I just wanted to type this out really quick before I go to bed. My BFF gave me this book for Christmas and I've mentioned it a few times (Loving the Little Years... Motherhood in the Trenches). I haven't even read half of it, but I love these little nuggets and I also love that the chapters are only a few pages long. Smile I read this excerpt a few days ago and it just hit me right between the eyes. I've been thinking about it ever since and wonder if anyone else can relate. Here we go (good thing I can type fast! ;)). Oh wait - disclaimer - there are definitely religious undertones so if you're offended or bothered by that sort of thing, skip it! Smile

"For a few months there in the middle of the wet, gray, rainy part of winter, I had two nursing infants and two toddlers - three out of four in diapers. It was very physically, as well as emotionally, intense. I can remember around this time taking the garbage out and just standing outside the door taking some deep breaths, getting ready to go back in. (When taking the garbage out becomes a 'destination,' you know you are really in the trenches!) It was somewhere around this time that I realized I had better strike the word overwhelmed from my vocabulary.

God gave me this to do. I may not be overwhelmed about it. I can try as hard as I can, and maybe fail sometimes. I can try as hard as I can and fall asleep at the dinner table. I can try as hard as I can and be completely burned out at the end of the day. But I may not be overwhelmed. Actually, I may be overwhelmed, but I may not say that I am overwhelmed! The words have a real power over us. If you say it, you allow it for yourself. You give yourself that little bit of room to say, "But I can't!"

When God gives us children, it is work that He is giving us. Word that comes with huge attendant blessings and bonuses, but work nonetheless. So imagine yourself delegating a task to someone (your children come to mind). Imagine you are asking them to clean up a room. You can see the work that you are giving them. You know that they need to pick up the dress-ups, the plastic food, and the books. You also know that what you are asking is well within their abilities. Now imagine one child looks at it, takes a deep breath, and dives in. But the other picks up one piece of food and then lies down to cry a bit about all the rest of them. You know as a parent that lying down and whimpering about the tasks does not get them done. It makes them harder, slower, and more difficult in every way. The child who is really working faithfully will see progress, will see that the task is doable. The child who is feeling sorry for himself will never get past that emotional low without some disciplinary intervention.

Do you see yourself in that?

......

... deciding to be the kid who would dive in and not the kid who would stand around anticipating the work and getting overwhelmed has some real consequences. You have to know that you are giving up those moments that you were allowing yourself. Deciding not to say it is different than never actually being in over your head.... I am still frequently in over my head. Actually, most of the time! But deciding not to wallow in that fact has removed one of the biggest obstacles to my work - my own calculations of how hard the job is."

Thoughts? Maybe a fun Friday conversation? Smile I'm going to bed now and I'm not going to complain tomorrow. Or at least try not to. Wink

Yep, I am most definitely the child that is continuously throwing myself a pity party reagrding my 'work'. Especially this last month with Rick sick. Yesterday, I felt that overwhelming attitude creeping up and remembered 'this is a choice, how I respond to my children is a choice, if I even allow myself to think I don't have it in me today, then I won't and the day will be miserable.'

Great story
Caroline has given Jax a strategy for working through his speech difficulties. She has labeled his speech, Green Speech, Yellow Speech, and Red Speech. Red is angry, tantrum throwing frustration. Red stops the message from getting through, it is ugly etc. Yellow speech is just the stuttering, speech with some mistakes, but yellow speech is ok. The message still comes out and people understand you. Green speech is easy flowing speech. Only Jaxon is in control of whether his Yellow speech moves to green, or red. Mom isn't in control of it, dad or Caroline, only Jaxon can choose to stay yellow or green and not move to red.
So to stay yellow or green these are his strategies
1. Take a deep breath and relax
2. Slow down
3. Think it through
4. Finger tap if you continue to get stuck
5. Keep it moving

Abigail eats the dog food. To get to the dog food, she has to climb under the couch. If I turn my back, she makes a bee line for the bowl. On Sunday, I kid you not that I pulled the couch out from the wall no less than 15x to remove her and dig dog food out of her mouth. She flat out waits for me to be busy, she knows she isn't supposed to do this, she eats more dog food than the dog. I spend every single day fighting this battle. By 5:00 Sunday I was just done with this. I came back from the bathroom and she was under the couch AGAIN. I snapped, pi$$ed me off and I got very angry. I literally thought to myself, (thank GOD I didn't say it out loud) either this girl is dumber than a box of rocks, or she is purposefully being defiant. But, I am MAD and I just start yelling at her about this whole situation. Serious over kill. I mean she is 20 months old, not 16, and I was literally yelling like she was 16. Sad Not my proudest moment. Wait for what happens. As Abigail is SOBBING, and I mean SOBBING, Jax says to me. "Momma, your speech is very red momma. You need to take a breath and relax. Slow it down a bit momma, think it through. Momma, only you are in control of your own speech, Abigail can't help you be green. :eek: NO KIDDING. Wow talk about a wake up call.

Ruth, I TOTALLY NEED that book! 1. Because taking out the trash is a destination for me (really!) and 2. I can be the child picks up only 1 toy because "I'm so tired." - Thanks for sharing that!!!

Kelly, :bigarmhug: - I hope you let your mom keep Everly today. You deserve a day of rest. Take your tylenol and definitely use the ice packs - they help a lot. I'm sorry it turned into such an invasive biopsy. :bigarmhug:

Cristina, that is so wrong of your boss to write you up because she disagrees with your opinion on things. Hang in there!

How are you today, Nicole? Any word on when your mammo-u/s is scheduled for?

Wendy, no idea on the Pax drop off - sounds like you aren't alone though. I do know Ella cried every day when they dropped her off, but she had JUST turned 2 and kind of had her world turned upside down and from what I understand, is much better now. Keep us posted!

Hi Jan! How are you feeling? Can't believe we're getting kind of close to another round of babies with you and Cristina! :woohoo:

Peg, whatcha cooking for the Superbowl party?

Hi Colleen!

Julie, is your dad still there?

Mel, CUTENESS on the clothes! And Emily, I think Wade has super short legs, too - just like his mama! Aghhh! And Emily, did you finish finding photos?

I went to bed at 9:30pm last night and I feel like a new person so far today! I was so glad that my mom was driving me last night, because I'm honestly not sure I could have done it myself the way I felt!

Mel, if it makes you feel any better (probably not), I would absolutely freak out if my child kept eating dog food!!! :eek: Especially if they did it over and over and over and over and over again...it was a natural reaction.

It is AMAZING that Jax articulated that to you though!! He not only was able to make the connections of "red" and "green" language, but he was also able to articulate it!!!

Ruth, wow..... thank you so very much for sharing that with us! I have used the word overwhelmed in every single email that I have sent DH this week.... I need to remove that word from my vocabulary too because it really is brining me down. That and I need to just quit complaining so dang much.

Emily, :bigarmhug:

You have a lot on your plate right now. I can't imagine being a full-time, single mom to three. If anyone should be overwhelmed it is you.

Was it you that looked at babysitter applications a while back? Is there someone that could help you just one or two afternoons for a few hours to let you nap or clean or do something you need to do?

One of my aunts came one day a week for a few hours and it helped so much when I was having chemo. Hang in there, girl and complain away to us. Really and truly.

Kelly thinking of you girl, I know it'll be good news we hear from you very soon!! I hope ou took the day "off" and get some good time to relax, you deserve it!!!

Cristina, that bites about your boss, she sounds like my old boss.....if you don't agree with her or do exactly as she asks, YOU have the attitude, etc problem. Hang in there as best you can!!!

Nicole thinking of you too, I can't remember when your results would be in, but want to hear great news soon from you as well!!

Candace whoooohoooooo on a good nights sleep! I'm bad and didn't read back too much, I hope that you can feel more strength soon!! And my Dad left this morning, it was sad....Colby was fine until he got out of the car at school, he started crying because he said he would miss me at school because Pop-Pop had to go home. Poor buddy!

Emily you are doing so much right now, single mother of 3 small children....you are amazing that you ARE keeping it together, you are one strong Momma!! Any word on if J is going to have to stay longer??

Mel love those clothes!!! Lol at the mud pic, I so remember that lol! Got my package yesterday this morning but still haven't opened it haha! Here instead lol!

Wendy I'm so sorry there's such a rough time with Pax and school, it's just so hard all around. And heartbreaking because you just want them to be happy.

Jan, I cannot believe you are so far along!!! How exciting!! You still feeling okay?

Colleen you just did amazing work on that kitchen , I'd hate to do anything in there now other than just look lol! But since that's not an option, at least you'll be surrounded by a beautiful kitchen lol!

K, can't remember what else sorry!

Not much here, Colby was really sick last week and was home the entire week from school, Daphne has it this week, but we are still less sick than this time last year. Guess that's good lol!

Ruth I ordered that book last night. thank you.

Sore today and achy .. just took some Tylenol .. DH is about to leave with the kids.. only things I am doing today is Grocery and a quick Target for a few items.
Gonna veg out and watch some movies or something... It's really hard to just sit and do nothing when things like dishes and cleaning need to be done... gonna try to balance today and do some.

Mel - what size baggies did you buy for this summer? Elastic waist, right? Everything Hanna Miles had ever had (hand me downs) has NOT fit him right. Seems to me ALL the clothes are made for slims and I've got a husky boy, lol.

Jules - everyone on the mend now, though? Miles pulls the "I'm sad that you'll be lonely" when he's at school every once in awhile. If he only knew how much I love my free time, lol.

Emily - ((Hugs))

Wendy - I think a call to your pedi or a counselor wouldn't be a bad idea. I think anxiety is totally normal, but lasting for up to 10 minutes (or more) I think is extreme. How did he do the rest of the day? (You said you left, him right?) Would taking a toy help him? There's a little boy in Miles's class who is obsessed with penguins and he refuses to go to school without a penguin. Another little girl HAS to walk in with a friend (or she won't go).

Superbowl I am going to attempt a party at my girlfriends with the kids.. previously I boycotted her house cause she has a pool (an amazing one with waterfalls and under water lights etc) with no gate around it.. she also has a 2 yr old... anyways it was always a MAJOR undertaking cause the kids were attracted to the lights and waterfalls etc... I had heart failure a few times.. so i told her "I am really sorry to do this but I can't come over with my kids until you fix the pool area... I hope you don't have an accident and Sophie gets hurt or worse but I am not taking that chance with my kids" SHE FINALLY got a gate installed (albeit with built in torches -don't ask) so I agreed to go for a bit. But I am going to go to my moms with the kids and hang there.. Dh is at a party with the boys.
food- we are talking spaghetti, garlic bread, cesear salad, Smile

Man I feel like this year has been worse than others for sickies... hope everyone is feeling better

I didn't mean to make everyone feel guilty!!!! We ALL have major challenges and obstacles and I didn't mean to downplay that in any way. For me, I get [overwhelmed ;)] easily and drag my feet and don't love my kids as well as I can and I end up being like that second child and it ruins my day. It was so helpful for me to read that section and realize that I need to stop that cycle and stop feeling sorry for myself.

Aww, N is always sad when my parents leave, too. And i called my grandfather Pop-Pop, too! Is that a German thing? Are you German somewhere? lol

I insisted that DH stay home today. He doesn't function well on little sleep and we were up until 1:30am 2 nights ago discussing our budget and then he stayed up until 2 or 3am last night cooking/cleaning and then M was up a few times and even though i got up with him, my DH didnt sleep through it like he normally does.... Soooo, I knew he'd get sick if he got up at 5m to go to school, so i just talked him into staying home. He has the PTO hours so he might as well use them. Its taken me 10 years to figure this out, but i'd much rather him sleep now and function later... as opposed to him being gone all day and then crashing when he gets home and being out of commission for the rest of the day. This way, we have a chance at doing something together as a family later...

ETA: oops, Mel - that was a great story. Amazing that Jax was able to put everything together. And the dog food would make me CRAZY!!! is there anywhere else you can store it?

Hi ladies. Its been one of those Friday morning and I cannot tell you how much I appreciated your quote Ruth. It applied equally at work and at home and I definitely can be the second child. I will keep that in my mind today.

Emily, I'm sorry that you feel overwhelmed. I think you are amazing!

Hi Peg, you are going to your sister's award this weekend right? How did you end up getting her to go?

Mel, that would drive me insane. I used to gate off the kitchen for that very reason. WTG Jax, that was quite a well reasoned speech.

Julie, my kids are always sad when my parents leave too. Can Colby skype them?

Ruth, score on the clothes Smile That is fantastic! I'm glad DH stayed home today too. Any progress on your housing decisions?

Wendy, sorry that you are having such a hard time with drop off. Alicia has trouble too. I've learned to keep it short and quick. We have a routine and stick to it. If I don't all H#LL breaks loose.

No appointment yet. I called my doc and they haven't even faxed it. They said today or more likely Monday and they will call when the appointment is set. I am sick to my stomach with worry. I certainly hope and pray that its B9 or a cyst, but I won't rest well until I know. Yesterday was my grandfather's 98th birthday and I didn't call him. I was too upset and overwhelmed at home last night. The kids were all over the place. I will call him tonight. I cannot believe he was born in 1914...amazing.

Kelly, I'm so glad it looks like it isn't anything serious. You are still in my thoughts too.

No Superbowl plans here. LOL

Em, baggies are size 4Y

I could move the dog food, but I'm not going to. This is one battle I am choosing to fight. It's not about eating the dog food. It's not like she finds herself bored and upon exploring finds the dish and nibbles on some before she remembers she shouldn't be eating it. This is about purposeful, exact, pre-meditated, 'my mom's not looking' defiance. I payed careful attention to come to this conclusion. I casually got up and headed to the living room gate to use the restroom. Abigail followed me, I walked through the gate, she watched me, and then just as I closed the gate and turned around, she assumed I was walking away. She abruptly turned around and headed straight for the couch and started crawling under to get to the dog's food. Yep, my mom is gone, I can go eat the dog food. She did the same thing yesterday when I was unloading the dishwasher, she came and made sure I was going to be occupied and then went and crawled under the couch.

My sister joking suggested I start feeding the dog broccoli. LOL

Colleen, so awesome that you are almost done in the kitchen. I don't even keep my kitchen clean these days, much less anything else. :roll:

Ruth, I am glad you convinced DH to stay home. I really do think there is something to be said for "mental health days."

Julie, great idea whoever suggested Colby skyping with your dad! That would be awesome. Did you get any lectures about your step-mom's gifts?

If for NO other reason, I will be happy when my treatment is over so dh and I can get back to normal. This has been so stressful for us. Sad

Also, I think I might have some infection brewing at my mastectomy site on the left side. Anybody know what I should look for? Maybe I'll call the nurse. It is NOT the side they are doing radiation on - it is the other side.

mel...broccoli ROFL that's great

candace...hmmm....i'd be surprised this far out of surgery that you would be getting an infection..possible but highly unlikely i would think......signs of infection are severe redness and warm to the touch...aome sometimes red is just a sign of healing but if it is warm or hotter than the rest of you skin it may mean infection.....or if the actual stitches/insicion is breaking open that's a different story.......what's going on..what makes you think you might have an infection???????

colleen...yay for a good visit...i can't believe dan is going skiing....some kind of football fan he is ROFL .....and i really wish they would move the game time up.....crazy how late and with all the hoopla it runs even longer....i didn't take off the day after either this year...usually i do but i'm trying to save my time for you many vacations ROFL

It started getting very tender again all of a sudden. And there is some increased redness. I'll ask if I can see a nurse tonight. I just know sometimes they are already gone by the time of my treatment (6pm). But I see the doctor on Monday anyway.

Glad your sister will be able to be surprised at the alumni game!

eta: I never had any stitches or anything...and it did seem to heal perfectly. This is a different type pain than the scar tissue tenderness.

Colleen, good luck with the grout tonight! Your kitchen is so beautiful, I love it! I am still in awe that you did everything yourself! You did such an amazing job!

Julie, how sad that Colby misses your dad so much Sad And sorry to hear that the kids are sick too Sad

Peg, enjoy your weekend! You prolly already answered this, but are the kids going with you?

Kelly, sounds like a good superbowl! I don't blame you for being uncomfortable with the non-gated pool, I would be the same way. Did I see in the other bbb that you were coming to SD in a couple weeks?

Ruth, I hope your DH feels better after some rest.

Mel, I think you picked a good battle to fight! She seems very persistant with this one. Jax is going to be one stylin kid this summer! I love all the clothes you got him!

Emily, did you tell Miles about the Disney trip or is it a surprise?

Nicole, I hope they are able to get you in soon, I know you must be so worried Sad

Candace, I cannot even imagine how stressful this must be for you and your DH :bigarmhug: I did find a babysitter who is going to come over on Saturday mornings to watch the kids so that will help me out a lot.

Hi Deb, Karrie, Kerri, Wendy, Kat, and anyone else I missed

Thank you all so much for all the kind words! :bigarmhug: to you all. I seriously do not think I could do this without all the love and support that you all have shown me. You gals are the BEST!!! I did talk to DH this morning and he said that they are getting extended until the end of July. Only two months longer than when they would've come home so that isn't too bad. It does have a silver lining though. Originally they were supposed to come back at the end of may, leave for 3 months in July, come home for a month, and then leave for another 3 months in December. Since they are staying out until July now they have canceled the two 3 monthers!! I would much rather have it this way so I am actually pretty happy with the extension. Never thought I would hear myself say that!
