BBB'rs report to FB STAT.. STAT
Julie, I just sent you a fb message. You need to rejoin that group. Very Important. VERY
ohh good call Mel.
Hey Julie, You have great taste. LOL
I know, right???
I sent the request to join the group.
Emily, are you cold and clamy, yet dripping with sweat? What about your color, are you nice and pink, or are you pale and greyish? If you are really truly worried, why don't you call your Dr and ask if they can do a quick ekg?
Nope fine color wise and, well, everything wise. Everything I feel has a completely reasonable explaination, I just can't seem to shake the anxiety. My docs office sux and can't get me in...like ever. But if I still am feeling weird tomorrow I may go to Stat Health and just have them reassure me that I'm fine.
Emily hmmm you are freaking me out... you had better be seen ok.
Emily- I hope everything is ok.
Kelly- I have thoughts like that at times. Makes me feel kinda guilty.
Mel- buy the couch woman.
Colleen- freaking me out about the teenage years.
Dh is finishing up the flooring now. Running into issues with the molding though. I put the dresser and the two side drawers together myself. Kinda poud here. Hopefully we will have it all done by tomorrow. That is when we were planning.
Mel, I need a price opinion on this:http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewitem?itemId=300663724652&index=0&nav=SEARCH&nid=77389187661
What is "reasonable" and have you seen another one in a 6.anywhere?
I haven't seen a Tullah in a 6 but I don't pay attention to that size at all. A good price would be $35 or less. A reasonable price would be $40. Gypsy Blue is from 2010, (I think) it retailed new for $56 We have that dress and LOVE it. It did run big, so a 6 should serve you a long time.
Colleen, I have a question for you. Joey lost one of his top front teeth yesterday. It had been really loose for about a week. But it looks like the root is still connected to his gums. There's a funny, fleshy looking thing hanging down where the tooth was and the tooth is hollow. Anything to worry about?
I can't say for sure...but the root normally resorbes away...so the hollow looking tooth is definately a good thing....i bet it is just a tissue "tag" from the tooth below stirring things up as it is errupting, and when the tooth came out, it just pulled te extra tissue down....if he is unbothered by it, if the area doesn't feel sharp to his tongue, then my guess would be tissue tag....
Good morning ladies. Might take the kids to Hopscotch today. Depends on whether M comes today or not.
Crap. It's the 17th of Feb and I haven't done any laundry for the kids yet this month. So much for my stupid resolution.
Kat, I want to see pics of the project.
Headed to a friend's house today for a playdate, but she lives about 40 minutes away so when we get together we spend a lot of time so it's worth the drive! Our kids all get along really well, so it works out great. But I won't be around at all. I'm going to try to post a video I took yesterday of Brian, though. It'll make you smile.
Thanks Colleen. He said it doesn't hurt at all so that's probably all it is. It's actually kind of funny, we've been saying all week that it's just holding on by a thread so he says that must be the thread! lol
Have fun with your friend Ruth!
Mel, have fun at hopscotch, if you go!
Oh yeah, and Mel... if you see the video (in the Pic thread), can you please give me some hints about dealing with Brian's cowlick? DH has one, too, in the same spot - but his isn't nearly as bad and I've kind of learned how to cut it. But that doesn't work with Brian's hair, since his is a lot more thin and fine. It just sticks straight up no matter what I do - we even tried some gel and it didn't last long. I think it's kind of cute but people make comments about it all the time... and it won't be cute forever...
I could also use advice on cowlicks. I was going to post last night that I look like a 2year old boy with my AWFUL cowlick!
Hope everyone has a good day today. Kat, I can't wait to see the room too!
Cristina, if you are lurking, thinking of you. :bigarmhug:
Nicole, are they still moving forward with gene study for you? I hope so!
We're here all day today until I leave for my appointment around 4pm. Laundry is on my agenda for the day, too.
And cuddling Wade. He was running a fever and getting a cough last night. Hoping he is better when I go get him up in a sec!
Emily, how are you feeling today?
Yep,we are going to hopscotch.
Candace, I thought you didn't have radiation on Fridays????
Ruth, length is the only thing that will correct that cowlick right now. try to not cut that area any shorter than the rounds of the scalp on the sides and the occipital bone in the back. That doesn't mean the hair below that area has to be longer. And don't change the direction of the way it wants to go. (This is very difficult to explain in type without the ability to point to visuals) Think of the cowlick as a circle, that area grows in a rotation. You are trying to split that circle in half and are cutting it for the top half of the circle to come forward when that entire circle needs to go down the back of the head, not towards the forehead.
Ben woke up with a nasty cough and darth vader breathing. Hes at mils house. She says hes been fine. I hope shes right. Hes not Running a fever atleast.
Emily, how are you feeling today?
Yep,we are going to hopscotch.
Much better thank you. The anxiety is gone. Frankly, I blame all of you who were talking about it, lol. I am so not an anxious kind of person, but I couldn't sleep the other night (the kind of insomnia that has the craziest scenerios ever running through your mind) and it just hung on. The insomnia I think is hormonal in that it happens about once a month but it's never hung on like that before. Kept freaking out about what would happen if something happened to me in the middle of the night, how long would Miles be alone before someone figured it out. Can't describe too much 'cause I don't want it creeping back.
Have fun at Hopscotch Mel! And really, no laundry at all for them? Not even socks and underwear?
We are leaving tomorrow morning to head to my Mom's house for the week. Miles has "mid-winter" break next week so I might be scarce. My BFF is 8 1/2 months pregnant so we usually spend a lot of time doing stuff with her, but I think we'll be doing less this time. But today we will be packing and cleaning.
slow at work today and twinkletoes is working my last nerve...it's gonna be a long day

mel.........gotta love kids that are daredevils!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!! no fear.....good and bad!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!!!!
Wow Colleen, what a super busy weekend. It sounds overwhelming, but I know you will pull it off with a smile, you seem to have the energy of 3 people.
Peg, posting from the phone is obnoxious, lurking from the phone would have been fun if you all could have given me something to lurk.
So who's sick of hearing about my couch drama? The chick from the store called me this morning, wanted to know if I was coming back in today to get that sectional. I said, nope probably Sat when I can do it without kids. She said. Oh, well the 20% off was only for Thursday, today our sale is 10% off, but if you can come in today I will give YOU the 20% off because we weren't able to finish the transaction yesterday. And then I don't know how she worded it, but it sounded like she was insinuating that Saturday it wouldn't be on sale. I said, well that is odd, when I called the store after looking last weekend, the guy made it sound like if I was paying cash and not financing the purchase, then the 20% off would apply no matter when I stopped in to pay for it. She hemmed and hawed around and acted generally confused on the matter and finally just said, well, because it's YOU I guess I can do the 20% off on Saturday too.
And here's my thoughts on this.....it's what I wanted to say to her, but kept it from coming out of my mouth.
I realize the general public falls for this song of dance of yours, but I don't, and quite frankly I'm offended that you think my intelligence is somewhat lacking in this area. I'm 42, not 22. I've been in this situation of buying big ticket items many times, and I gauran-damn-tee you I won't be buying that sectional for any less than 20% off whether it be today or 2 months from now. Not only that, but now I will be taking the time to visit Thorton's and see what they have and for how much and you better cross your fingers they don't have something even remotely close, because I'm now prepared to pay $100 more somewhere else.
damn mel...you should have said that to her LOL...i hate salespeople like that......i told off a mattress salesman at sleepy's one time for practically the same thing....he had to call the 'district manager' to get a price.....whatever buddy...I was 8 months pregnant with alyssa's trying out mattress (what fun :rolleyes: ) so steve was sitting at the desk and the guy calls his manager and says 'steve is here and wants to know a price on the such and such mattress' and i hear the manager say 'well is he there with his wife' and i flipped...lol....wtf does he care if he's with his wife it shouldn't matter!!!!
i hate sales people....car sales are the same way
Wow Mel, nothing like a pushy salesperson. :rolleyes:
Good luck this weekend Colleen, and have fun!!
Awesome Kat! It's looking really good! What's Josh think of it?
Colleen, wow. I am sitting here in my chair doing nothing and I am so tired I can't imagine doing even half of what you have planned over the next several days. :eek:
In fact, I was supposed to call the physical therapist and schedule more appointments for myself (per the surgeon's request on Wednesday). I haven't done it yet. *sigh*
Kat, Josh's room is looking SOOOO good! He is going to love it! I saw his closet and was happy that I don't have to empty the girls' closet any time soon.
Mel, that furniture lady doesn't know who she was messing with...and if she would have had her act together you probably would have bought it yesterday!!! I'm guessing Thornton's is their competition. Sucks for her!
My mom just called and offered for the girls to spend the night with her tonight. Think I will take her up on that!
Hi Peg and Karrie! Hope the last while of work goes by quickly for both of you!!
Peg, what did YOU being there have to do with the price he gave Steve?! Ridiculous.
I'm guessing because if i wasn't there he would need to bring me back another day....since i was there there was a better chance that a sale would be made that day and i guess maybe it's the opposite of cars...maybe they think the woman know more about mattresses where as they might be able to get one over on the may...idk.....and actually i didn't care i was just pissed that he even asked.....steve told the guy to tell him he's an a$$hole and we walked out ROFL!!!!!
That is hilarious, Peg! There is a ridiculous mark-up on mattresses.
I wanted to take a nap but I just heard Wade cry. But he's quiet again for the moment. Hoping he goes back to sleep.
Peg, I remember that mattress story from when it happened 4 years ago.
A night with the kids at the grandparents sounds heavenly. You better be getting lucky.
I hope he's quiet for you too candace and that you are napping right now as I type
So Peg, did twinkletoes' meds kick in?
no but there were 3 of us on so we talked him into leaving early
Well whaddya know, he did go back to sleep! I just got about a 40minute nap. :woohoo: Needed that. The treatments aren't really that bad, but I am definitely worn out by Fridays.
And I meant to say, Mel, yes I do have treatments every M-F - but after today, week 4 is over!
re: the getting lucky...that would be nice. DH is too scared of me getting preggo.
Anyway, naptime over. Have to get up and do a quick speed clean/pack diaper bags/change clothes before I leave here in 30 minutes! Wish me luck. :roll:
DH is going with me again today so we're having 2 date nights this week. Much needed!
Cristina, anxiously awaiting an update from you when you feel like it! :bigarmhug:
thank god jack napped......i got all 3 bathrooms cleaned, and i cleaned the truck, vacuumed and washed the dash......can't pick my brother and chris up in a filthy truck, and made kairi a bouquet of tissue paper flowers to put ontop of her gifts.....it's the most random gift bag of goodies.....lucy and abby did all the shopping.......they bought her a stuffed kitty and put a cinderella tiara on top of it, a coloring book they thought kairi could handle :rolleyes: and some moon dough and sidewalk chalk........oh and bubbles....LOL!!!!!!! so instead of just putting tissue paper ontop, i made 3 huge tissue paper flowers (since she is 3 ) and covered her gifts that way.......we're the only ones going over tomorrow....:( my niece literally has noone but me.....her brother is only 19 and doesn't have a license and lives about 30 minutes away.....her father lives in cali....her mother lives in nh, her boyfriend is an only child.....so it's just me and my troop going over to help celebrate with kairi........
ok.........blue hair supper and then sarah's LAST BASKETBALL game........i'm not sure if i'm happy or sad.......she said she's not playing softball, she may play basketball for an aau team.......but that is not very time consuming..........so...................it's time for her to look for a job............she's gonna be getting her permit in about 5 months...
and since i never seem to talk about my little blossom abby.......abby can write her name now........YAY!!!!!!!!!!
Told ya you had the energy of 3 people. :woohoo: to Abby
yay for a nap candace...yay ...almost done
colleen......it depends on the aau team...some of them are VERY time consuming!!!!!!! and Yay for abby writing her name wooottt
I hate sales people too. Super hate Car salesmen. I really hated it when DH was selling cars for a little while.
Candace- Enjoy your time while the kids are at grandma's.
Karrie- Josh loves it. He keeps giving me hugs and kisses and saying thank you.
aww kat...so glad that he loves it...that is awesome!!!!!!
Wow, WTG Abby!!!! Such a smart lil cookie.
Kat, love what you are doing with Josh's room! It is going to be so nice when you finish.

Emily love that avatar sexy Momma!
Colleen yup, I'm tired reading about your weekend into next week! I hope you have a blast! And whoohoooo for Abby writing her name! Good job girl!
Dang it the 'topic review' is only showing smilies, wth? Now I can't remember what else I read, I'm sorry!
Gonna chug some NyQuil and call it a night, long day. That weirdo who sent that creepy Valentine card? I thought her son was a brat before, but now it's 100% confirmed. He is just terrible, and she just sits there, other parents were the ones correcting him. Yuck.
