I thought I would start one. Let us know what you are doing these days.
I finished painting DD's new bedroom over the weekend. On Sunday we moved the furniture in and we have started the transition from crib to bed. So far it is going well. She napped in there yesterday for the first time. Only came out 3 times and today she did not come out at all. I think we will stick too naps for now and then start sleeping there at night in a few weeks. She also gave up her bottle recently, so that is great. Now just potty training. I tried for a few weeks but I do not think she is quite ready yet. I think we will wait till after the baby comes. Just less stressful for me and for her.
I've been busy getting rid of more stuff out of the girls' bedrooms to make more room. So far, by the looks of it, we're not going to get moved into bigger housing until well after DS is born, which means he could be sharing a room with us until he's 6 months to a year old. Eek!
So DH wants to start clearing out things we don't need or use in the kids' rooms and then begin moving all their toys in their rooms. Then he will move his work out stuff downstairs so we have more room in our room for when DS comes. However, I don't like that idea since in 2 weeks he's going to be going through a buildup for the next deployment and having his work out stuff downstairs just seems useless to me.
This weekend we're getting DD2 a big girl bed because it hurts too much for me to try and bend over to get her or lay her down in bed. Ha ha, I'm pretty short (just under 5'1) and since I'm planning on staying pregnant at least 2 more months (ha ha) and again since DH will hardly be home, I'm the one who has to get DD2 in and out. I think she'll really like her bed. Plus it has drawers under it so we can get rid of her dresser that recently broke (the bottom drawer is broken so it hardly pulls out and takes a lot to push back in...I'm sure we could fix it, but the dresser was free so it doesn't matter to me if we keep it or not).
I have started to get more organized with the girls lol. We recently bought closet organizers that have 8 slots in them, so after I do laundry I put their clothes for the week in there and their shoes on the bottom. It really helps a lot in the morning so I'm not scrambling to get them dressed and hope I have enough clothes clean and folded lol. Plus DH can't have the excuse the he didn't know what to dress them in if he lets me sleep in in the mornings.
I go in for my 3 hour tomorrow and I'm hoping I pass, although I'm not looking forward to being stabbed 4 times lol. Then my next appt is the 9th. I swear I feel like this pregnancy is flying by! I can't believe I'm already over 30 weeks along!
Sounds like she's doing good going into a big girl bed! I'm glad it's not too stressful. I know some kids have a hard time (lol apparently I was one of those kids) staying in bed. I hope she likes her bed and that she starts to potty train easily!
I've been busy getting rid of more stuff out of the girls' bedrooms to make more room. So far, by the looks of it, we're not going to get moved into bigger housing until well after DS is born, which means he could be sharing a room with us until he's 6 months to a year old. Eek!
We're kind of in the same situation. Our house is 2 bedroom and DD already has the one bedroom, so DS will be with us until we move to a bigger house, which won't happen until well after he's here. DH is still unemployed so there's really no telling how long he'll be in there with us.
I spent the weekend cleaning vomit out of DD's carseat. She had some major vomit on Saturday morning while we were out and about and after washing the padding part 3 times and cleaning the belts and buckles with clorox wipes, q-tips and toothpicks several times. And then febreezing all of it, I can still smell the sour in her carseat. Yuck.
I've already installed the new carseat in my car. I guess I'm totally weird, but we had it and I couldn't stand it not being ready to go. I've already started thinking about packing hospital bags and all that too. Someone stop me, I'm out of control!
We still need to make sure all 3 seats will fit in the back of our SUV since we only have the one car. DD2 is in a booster car seat, and since CA changed the age requirements to be out of boosters, DD1 had to go back into one at the beginning of the month, but hers is just the seat without the back. We're hoping to squish DS's in there too ha ha. It just keeps slipping our minds on the weekends.
I've already got my bag partly packed. Just with DS's things (clothes, blankets). I'll pack my part of it in March and then of course toothbrush and stuff when I'm leaving. And as weird as it sounds, I'm anxious next month to begin precooking dinners for when he arrives lol.
I am not too worry about packing the bag or installing the car seat but it is probadly becuase I know exactly when this baby is coming (unless something major happens before then). But I am going to go through our baby clothes and pull out anything that is neutral, wash it and start putting it into the nursery dresser. I still have to move DD's clothes into her new room, but that will happen this week hopefully. I need to buy some more storage bins to organize DS's and DD's old clothes ( I am looking forward to knowing what this baby is so that I can get rid of th extra clothes we will not need).
DD2 is in a booster car seat, and since CA changed the age requirements to be out of boosters, DD1 had to go back into one at the beginning of the month, but hers is just the seat without the back.
DS1 is the same age as your DD1 and was all excited at the possibility that he might get to be out of a carseat/booster soon. He wasn't even close the the 60lb weight thing but still hopeful. Now that its 8 and 80lbs I told him that he would be in it till high school. I was planning on keeping him in it either way until close to his 7th bday but now it will be even longer. Oh, and I'm with you on not being tall enough to get DS2 into the crib anymore. I'm 5'1" also and we don't have a drop down side on the crib. When I lowered the matress a few months back I had to get (kid you not) a 2 step stepstool so that I could get him into the crib when he was alseep. Now my belly is even making that an issue...lol.
I think DH is nesting cause he has 'projects' that we are doing each weekend until baby arrives. Kinda good though since this weekend I was forced to clean out all our closets with him which ment I was able to pack up all the 0-6 month baby clothes that hadn't totally been put away yet. And sorted through all my different size cloth diapers which were just everywhere.
This week I get to go to visit the Chiro 2 times. I've been going for 3 weeks now and it has made such a difference with my sciatic nerve and hip pain. Not even just why I just always lived with it in the past.
Lol with the step stool! DH kept telling me that I need to get a step stool instead of the bed, but whenever I get the step stool out, DD2 steals it and then half the time I can't find it anymore. I actually have to use one to get to the top shelf where the adult plates are in the cabinet or DH has to get them ha ha. And I was mad about them changing the laws in CA with the booster seat. DD1 was so excited to be out of it and then I looked it up and they changed it from age 6 to age 8 for being in a booster. DD is only 40lbs now lol so the 80 lbs hope is out the window. My only hope would be if she got tall enough, but I don't think she's going to grow like 8 or 9 inches in the next 2 years. Ha ha.
I've been having the worst time trying to sleep. I can't breath at night because someone is determined to suffocate me lol. Then if I'm able to breath I'm just not comfortable so I lay awake a lot. Hopefully he will learn he's not suppose to be in my ribs and will drop down so I can breath!
Well I must go cook dinner now. We're having spaghetti so I can load up on carbs! Lol.
VA law is the same 8 or 80lbs my DD who is 8 1/2 is only 42 lbs.... I just got rid of her Booster.
I know we can't fit her booster in the backseat of my hubby's truck with my son's car seat and the babies car seat.
Wow.. your daughter must be a very slight build! My daughter is 4.5 years old and is 50lbs!!
We are doing well these days... into knights and castles around here. We made shields and decorated them with coats of arms today. It was fun... I think tomorrow we will be making swords since shields without swords just turn into bludgeons!!
Thursday is my last day with four and after that I will be down to just two little ones. Debating whether or not to take on any more little ones before the baby is born, but not sure. Car seats are definitely a consideration since right now the van fits the three car seats and one booster, but we wouldn't all fit if I got a sibling pair... unless my daughter went in the front which I spoke with the manufacturer and they said is ok because the airbag turns off, but I still feel uncomfortable about doing.
I just put DD's into her big girl bed for the second night in a row. Last night went really well, hopefully tonight goes just as well.
We have been on the 8 or 80lbs for awhile. DS is 4 and 50 lbs so he has a way too go in the booster. DD is 2 and 30lbs so she has too stay in her carseat for awhile yet. Can't move to a booster until she is at least 40lbs.
As per usual, we are just sorting, purging, and accumulating baby stuff. I've been busy with the start-up of my new school term, getting myself registered at another school, and keeping the house spotless, because it is SO embarrassing to have friends or family show up, and have a ton of my sewing/knitting/homework projects just piling up around me. I have started my mass collection of cloth diapers, which I'm excited about
One more phase of getting ready for baby...we got DD2 a big girl bed today! She loves it so far (hopefully she'll sleep in it tonight ha ha). So we have the crib free now and a few weeks to get her use to it before LO comes.
Then we need to clean our room up and get rid of a desk so then we can have a place for baby to have his crib. Gah in 6 weeks I'll be considered full term! WOW!
It's been such a long time since I've been here, you guys probably don't even remember me
I can't believe this little guy will be here in 2 months! Time really is flying by. I think I may have about 10 outfits for him and that's about it. Other than my belly, you'd never know we're having a baby. I had DD's nursery all done by this point. But, we're still trying to sell our house, so there's hardly any point doing up a cute nursery and then move. I'm definitely more laid back with this one.
I ended up failing my 1 hour glucose test the other week and had to take the 3 hour. THANKFULLY I passed the 3 hour with normal results, so no GD for me! I was majorly relieved. I've already gone through too much with this pregnancy with the surgery last November.
Any who, I am going to TRY to keep up with this board now...Promise I'll try really hard!
ds is 42lbs and we're no where close to putting him in booster, his current seat is 5pt to 65lbs (doesn't convert to booster) but we'll be switching him to a new seat when baby it out of bucket. Then we'll get him a seat that goes up to at least 65lbs or more and then converts to booster
this weekend is a little bit of a bust, ds has diarrehea (although completely fine, we just need to stay home) and I've been fighting a cold or something. Trying to get some cleaning done, we'll see how the day goes
I had success last night with DD2! She stayed in bed all night! Okay minus the one time she rolled out of bed, but she was more upset about being woken up than actually falling out of bed lol. Once I put her back in bed and covered her she laid down although when I left the room she cried (normal night routine for her ha ha).
Jennifer - I remember you! Lol. I was wondering where you had been! I failed the 1 hour glucose too, but I'm pretty sure I passed the 3 hour since I haven't heard anything back. Also the only reason we have all ours clothes so far is because I bought them off ebay and Craigslist lol. Other than that I haven't been in a shopping mood for baby at all! Good thing we have almost everything still!
LJ - I hope DS feels better soon! Diarrhea with kids (or in general) is no fun at all!
Also, in other news, one of my HS friends had her baby boy a week early early this morning. He weighed 9 lbs 10 oz!!!! Lol so I'm hoping for a small baby again lol!
My first DD was 19 months old when my second was born. Something that was suggested to me, that REALLY helped, was right before baby gets here, give a new set of sheets/pillow cases for your older daughter, to get her excited about her new bed, and she might be less likely to suddenly reattach to the crib. We found some on clearance for cheap, and it was a life saver from screaming jealous drama! haha
...I just re-read that and realized I used a million commas. My editor brain hurts now. Whoops
Lol. Yeah DD2 loves her bed. She gets excited every time I redo it (putting her stuffed animals on it).
Shew so today we switched the box mattresses in our girls' beds (the one DD1 had was 1/3 of the size of DD2's new one, so we switched it in case she falls off again it won't be as big of a fall lol). Then I went through DD1's stuffed animals on her bed (she literally had probably 50 stuffed animals on her bed...most from my mom...and huge! GAH!) and then went through both girls' clothes! Then I folded laundry and will be putting it away soon. I feel so accomplished today and it's not even noon yet! Lol.
Now if only I could get DH to start doing our room instead of trying to get into better shape lol. But then again he needs to get back into better shape since they're beginning their build up in a week or two and will be run into the ground if they can't keep up. Gah.
Also I need to go through all the girl clothes I have still and get rid of most of it (key word is most since I'm still hopeful for a 4th in my future lol and don't want to get rid of all the baby clothes just in case!) I'm just excited that I'm finally getting things even further along than what they were!
My daughter is 4.5 and still falls off the bed nearly every night!! We had a side on it for a super long time, but took it off in the summer because the other two kids we had at the time were younger and didn't have one so she felt she didn't need it. Whats funny is that she doesn't even realize she has fallen off!! She just goes on sleeping... we pick her up, put her back in bed and she doesn't remember any of it! We also take her to the bathroom in the middle of the night and if we didn't hold her she would fall off the toilet. One time she rolled out of bed, and cracked her face on the bed side table (we have moved it now..) and when she woke up in the morning, I asked her where she got the big bruise on her face, and she had no idea!
Last night she freaked me out because when I went to check on her before I went to bed I couldn't find her... eventually I found her in our bed, and moved her back. We got quite the chuckle this morning because she had no idea she had moved beds!!
Ha ha Heather! Kids are so funny! My older one has fallen off a few times and doesn't realize it. She also sleeps in weird positions and I've taken pictures lol.
Wow, I suppose I'm lucky on the bed front. DD was just about to turn 3 when we put her in a twin bed (before she was in her crib that was converted to a toddler bed). She hasn't fallen out once! She loves that bed and has to show it off to who ever comes over to the house.
Night two in the big girl bed went awesome. I put plenty of padding down just in case she fell out again (lol) but she never did! I had to peak at her in it too even though DH kept telling me not to. She looked so sweet in it!
Then this morning I was lying in bed waiting for DD2 to wake up and call for me or even cry but I never heard anything. The only thing I heard was the dog running back and forth through my room wanting to go outside (ha ha). So I looked at the time and was amazed that it was 8:40 and that I had heard nothing! So I got up and opened her door...to see her sitting in bed looking through books and as happy as ever!
I feel lucky to have made the transition to her big girl bed so easy!!!
DD1 didn't go into a twin bed until she was 3 1/2 and that was only because I couldn't lift her out of the crib anymore (yes I kept her in a crib that long because she never tried climbing out and my mom kept telling me I wanted to keep her in there as long as I could.) She was the same way though...when she would get up in the morning she would just call to me that it was time to get up lol.
Now if only potty training was easy like this since she's been showing interests in it. Although I don't want to do too many changes before LO is here.
I'm in the same boat with potty training. Zayne keeps telling me he wants to go potty and we let him go to the bathroom but nothing happens (he doesn't potty) until he has his diaper back on. I know I should be more "on it" but Lexi was so hard to potty train I really don't feel like beating my head against a brick wall with the baby coming soon!
Yeah I'll ask DD2 if she wants to go on the potty and she gets excited and lets me pull her pants down and she'll sit there for about 5 or 10 minutes then she just stands up and wants to wash her hands ha ha. Then about 15 minutes later she's complaining about needing a diaper change lol.
DD1 wasn't trained until she was about 3 and that was only because I worked with her a lot and I could read her signs better than DD2. I've just been so tired lately, but I did buy some training pants for DD2 in hopes that'll give her motivation.
DD transitioned to a big bed just last week. She has done really well, no falling out and she might come out but usually only once or twice and goes right back. As for potty training we gave it a good try at the beginning of the month and she had great moments but then just did not get it. She still talks about going potty but just sits there and does nothing. So we are taking a break and maybe going back to it in february but maybe not till the baby comes.
Ok so I was thinking about this last night (nothing like mixing exhaustion with insomnia!) WHY am I so tired? And I say this only because I realized that when I was 34 weeks Pregnant with Lexi a tornado hit our town and I spent HOURS helping clean up at my work only to come home and help clean up at home. When I was 38 weeks pregnant with Zayne (YES 38 WEEKS) I made TWO thanksgiving dinners with all the fixings BY MY SELF and it didn't phase me. SO WHY am I so tired now?????
I think it has to do with motivation and necessity. If you really need to do it ie. clean up after a tornado, you just find the energy. But if it can be put off or you was live without it you just can't seem to find the energy. At least that is the way it is for me.
I agree if it needs to get done, then you find the energy and get it done. Also, I think when it is your choice it is easier to get it done. My little one crawled into bed with me at 5:30 this morning, and I have been up since, of course he is still sleeping at nearly 8!!, but because he woke me up instead of me choosing to get up, I'm sure today is going to be a dragging my butt kind of day!
Maybe thinking about things like that make you tired. The thought that you might have to do something major like that again? Just a though. But wow at 38 weeks you made TWO Thanksgiving dinners?! I'm impressed. I got stressed with one this year lol. But it's only because I wanted to make sure it was good since I was trying a different recipe for the turkey lol. (BTW totally off subject, DH told me the other day that one of his friends spent his Thanksgiving alone, in the barracks, playing video games! HOW SAD! I cried when he told me lol...I told DH to make sure his friends all had somewhere to go and he didn't!)
Anyway...I'm irritated and tired. Last night as I was getting the dishwasher ready to run I open the cabinet for the soap and see my box of Swiffer Sweeper stuff look water stained. I picked up the top box to see that all the pads inside are ruined. Then I notice the one under it is also ruined. I pick up the box and realize there's at least an inch or two of standing water under the cabinet! UGH! Turns out my sink and garbage disposal are leaking!!! And who knows how long it's gone on for. OMG the smell was horrendous! I was almost in tears because a bunch of new things I just bought were all ruined. We lost about $50 in cleaning stuff for the carpet and tiles. The bottom of the sink is all warped and the wall shows water damage. Ugh. So DH and I cleaned out under the sink at like 1030 at night (remember DH has to get up at 2 AM every day this week and doesn't get off until about 6 PM...he got a 2 hour or so nap in). A lot of the stuff had...yep...black mold growing on it. However I believe that's from it sitting in gross water for who knows how long (about 10 days). So I made a maintenance call last night for them to HOPEFULLY come out today. If not today, then tomorrow. I'm really hoping they come today, esp since I had to clear everything out from under the sink and it's just sitting in the kitchen ha ha.
Then for some unknown reason DD2 has decided the way she wants to eat today is take a bite of a doughnut, put it back, and when I put it back in front of her to finish, she takes a bite, chews it, and spits it ALL over! UGH! So I gave her mini muffins because I wouldn't let her have any more after she did it again, and she chews it up, sticks her finger in her mouth, then wipes the muffin goo all over the couch! UGH! She's going to drive me crazy today because she was so good yesterday while I cleaned ha ha.
Hopefully my day shapes up because it's only 9:15 now! Ha ha.
Well I'll add to the list of home complaints... Remember a couple of weeks ago we were having sewer back up issues?? Yup, still happening. The water company has come out twice now and used a Drain King, which basically expands your pipes and pushes the gunk back. So everytime they've done this, by the next day everything is backed up again. When we take a shower, the toilet backs up and when we wash clothes, the shower drains back up. Plus everytime the water is run for longer than flushing the toilet or washing your hands, the pop up valve outside runs over. It's very frustrating! So I calle again today, for the last time, and they're supposedly going to come out and do something different. If this doesn't work then DH is going to have to rent a snake and clean out the pipes himself. So wish us luck that the water company can fix it!
And of course, this is the one day that I want to get some extensive cleaning done in our closet, but it's at the back of the house so I cant do anything until the guys from the water company show up. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to chill on the couch and watch tv.
Ok sorry, rant over. Thanks for reading!
You would think they'd know how to do it right! ha ha. that sucks that it's still backed up like that and I really hope that they do it right this time. Do you know if any neighbors are complaining as well? I would be mad if my DH had to do it himself.
I really hope it gets fixed for you! That would be a drag to have everything keep getting backed up!!!
If it's that bad, have they checked out whether it's something more at the street level? One of my close friends had that happen a year after they bought their house, and it turned out that a huge tree's roots had infiltrated the drain field, had sought out water from a tiny leak in their pipe, and eventually broke their pipes, causing the same massive back-up you're talking about.
I hope whatever it is gets fixed quickly, because that's yet another nightmare you don't want to be dealing with after baby gets here!
Well they came out and did the same thing they did the last two times! They said that tomorrow they're going to set up an appointment for someone to come out with a camera. So tomorrow I'm going to call them and make sure that someone is actually coming out. I'm not going to let them ruin my weekend by making my husband have to fix it himself! He's lovingly agreed to take me shopping for sewing stuff so I can get started on the curtains and crib bumper for the baby's room!
Yeah no one was coming out until I called them at 4:15. They showed up at 4:30 or so and I feel bad because they're suppose to get off at 5:00 and it's already past that. However I have found entertainment in it because it took THREE men and a bunch of tools, hitting, smashing, etc to get the garbage disposal off. Lol although they still dunno how to fix it ha ha! How lucky am I!! Of course this is also involving me chopping veggies, mashing potatoes, browning meat, and mixing it all together and trying to get it in the oven...and of course my kitchen is small so trying to fit 4 grown people (one of who is pregnant lol) into this place is not the easiest.
You never know how much you use your garbage disposal and sink until it's broken...oh and the dishwasher too since they're sure when the water drains it'll leak under the sink! Lol yay! Part of me is wondering if this means I get to get a bucket of soap water and wash dishes outside! LOL! Kidding, the other half of the sink has been working okay (for now) but it's already got a bunch of dishes from today and pans from last night (which I planned to wash today if my sink hadn't leaked lol).
And Jenny, I really hope they come and fix your problem tomorrow the right way! That's ridiculous that they haven't yet! And it'll really stink if your DH has to go and do it himself when they should be the ones to fix it! Hope it gets resolved soon!
Katie I'm so glad you got someone to come out and check on things. Hopefully it gets fixed soon!
They are expecting a snow storm for us this weekend! http://www.crh.noaa.gov/wxstory.php?site=gid I live in Kearney which is smack in the middle of the 10-15" area. YAHOO! The thing that really sucks is that it isn't supposed to start getting bad until Friday night which means it should be all better by Monday so....no snow day
Well according to Phil the Groundhog we're suppose to have 6 more weeks of winter, so I guess a snowstorm will show everyone how serious he is. Lol. The only thing here is that it's been windy. Hope you guys stay safe during the snowstorm and really warm!
Our sink got fixed finally after they had the three guys come in and pry it off. It took them over an hour just to get all of it done (I think pretty much they just took off the disposal and cleaned it out then put it back on? I'm not really sure!) Either way, they're coming back today just to be sure it's fixed. Then I can at least put everything back under the sink and hope it doesn't leak again!
I am not doing too much these days, the doctors have me on strict bedrest. Therefore I can't even shop for the baby unless it is online.
Samantha, I'm so sorry that you're on strict bedrest! Online shopping would be worse for me than in store shopping! LOL Just click and buy!
Lol I LOVE shopping online. It gets addicting. I hate going to the store unless I know exactly what I'm looking for. I've been buying clothes off Ebay and another box of clothes came yesterday and DH saw it and asked where it came from. Then he told me no more clothes shopping ha ha. I'm probably set on clothes until he's 2 years old! Lol!
I agree I would MUCH rather shop online than in a store!
BTW (shameless plug, if you decide to try it PLEASE give me some credit...ask for my referal code) diapers.com is AWESOME!!!! I order diapers and they are at my door the next day. Hardly requires ANY planning ahead! They also have soap.com which I use alot too. I don't use wag.com or yoyo.com much but they are available as well AND you can shop all 4 sites with one shopping cart. PLUS if you spend $50 you get free shipping ($40 if you use multiple sites)
Ok that's all for my "you should so totally use this website" plug
Speaking of shopping online...a lot of websites you can get cash back too! For example I use mrrebates.com a lot. Once you get a certain amount of cash back you request a check and they send it to you!
There's also Amazon Moms club where you get an extra 5% off and then you can combine that with "subscribe and save" and get another 15% off so you're getting 20% off.
Lol that's my shopping advice too.
I like shopping online however its the waiting for the items to get to you that I dont like. I want to review my items over and over once I buy them and I can only do that if i go to the actual store. I have gotten some good things online so far so I can't complain.
Jenny - hoping to hear good news about your water pipes!
They're working on it now!! The same two idiot guys came out this morning to use the Drain King again until the guys with the camera could come out. One of the guys tried to tell me just to not use as much toilet paper! I wanted to tell him that 1) as a pregnant woman I am peeing twice an hour and 2) there are only two people here, we are not using that much toilet paper! Oh well, we shouldnt have to deal with them anymore. Then at 11:30, the guys with the camera came out and checked out the pipes. They said there could be a possibility of 3 different problems, 1 being that there is a tree root issue, but not a big one. One of the possibilities was that our pipe is running in with our neighbor's across the street.. So they went to lunch and just got back about 20 minutes ago. They did a clean out at the corner of our and our neighbor's house, now they're doing something in our yard. The good news so far is that it's not something that we're going to have to fix!!
Samantha, I know what you're talking about with having to wait for the item to be delivered and yes, you can only get so much info and viewing out of the product when buying it online.
Ok, soooo we've got roots at our tap (which is connecting directly to our house) and they're going to have to dig up the roots. Because it's supposed to rain this afternoon and tomorrow, they cant do anything yet. The guy told me that basically we'll just have to use less toilet paper and keep calling for them to come out with the Drain King until they can fix the problem, and to make sure that they've got an appointment set up to dig up the roots. Arrggh!!!
Lol sorry, I know it's not a laughing matter...but "use less toilet paper" keeps making me laugh. Lol like you must use an entire roll a day!!! Gah. I hope they get that problem fixed because I can only imagine how irritating it must be!
Lol Katie, it really is laughable! I'm just going to have to tell my husband to stop being a man and using so much toilet paper when he's in there for an hour!
HA HA HA HA! My DH is the opposite and goes in there for about 2 minutes and is done. All I can think is "How do you do that?!" Lol. Then you have me who has been constipated and if I'm in there for like 5-10 minutes before he's knocking on the door to see if I'm okay! Lol.
HAHAHA @ "use less TP." We seem to be going through a LOT the last few weeks, combining the preggo (me), 2 young girls who still need to be reminded of moderation, and my husband. It's coming out to about 1 roll of Charmin a DAY!! DH and the girls are here almost all the time, and I'm here 1/2 of every day. I am sure the occasional amount goes to spider hunting, and other random times - it's not all going down the toilet... but WOW it seems like a TON to me!
Hope you get some clear skies, to get that fixed!!!
