:lurk: Tiffany, I wish you could come talk to my brother. He recently moved out, but has phoned me every day about going to see the doctor. He came over yesterday (he had a check from his grandmother here) and he was talking - and I told him he just had a cold. He is DEAD SET on going to see a doctor. 1. He doesn't have insurance and 2. there's nothing they can do for him. I told him both of these things PLUS the fact that he needed to take care of himself. Since he moved in with his friend, he's not eating/drinking like he should, he's partying and doing whatever young, stupid boys do, but definitely not taking care of himself.
Holly- Totally understand the frustration of having them bail on you. A few days ago DD had a christmas concert at her daycare and I invited my parents and my inlaws to come (they live about a 2 hour drive away). They all said they were coming, so I rsvp'd for everyone... cooked a big chicken dinner, cleaned my house, scrambled to come up with where everyone was going to sleep, and then they ALL bailed on me. I was so annoyed!!
Aww, Amnda, that totally stinks. Do they not realize, regardless of the fact that we're pregnant, that it's a lot of planning and prepping on our part. It's so rude and inconsiderate. I'm still up in the air about whether or not I'm going tonight. I just don't want to....DH thinks I'm kidding, but really, I'm not! I just don't know what to do.
I'm sure we'll all be busy over the next few days so I just wanted to say Merry Christmas from our family to yours! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday, and who knows? Maybe we'll have a few babies too!!
ETA: I just realized my c/s is in exactly 4 weeks :yahoo: Hoping she'll come a wee bit sooner, but otherwise 28 days and counting!!
Holly- what did you decide? Hell hath no fury than a woman approaching her due date.
Amanda- sorry your family did that to you too.
Santa (aka dh) is busy here. Seems wasteful right after having a birthday party. And I didnt even give DS the presents I bought him.
Went to Church. Feeling blue with the discomforts of pregnancy, the fact that I am still working with dh and ds home, missing my family, news stories, etc.
Tiffany, they called while I was napping to see if we could go to BILs to exchange gifts before going to dinner. I said no stinking way! They came down here to exchange gifts (which I still don't understand why we couldn't have just done dinner here), and the whole time my niece was itching her head like crazy. I am beyond livid because she STILL has lice! If my kids get it for a 3rd time, this pregnant woman is going to castarate BIL! I sprayed all the furniture and had the kids hair done (girls pulled up and Cam had gel in his hair). We went to dinner, but I kept to myself. I sat on the couch and played with my kids. I was irritated, and even after about a half hour DH said somthing about my niece and so we left early!
I got a Christmas miracle two days in a row....Cameron slept until 8:30!! He is normally up at 6. The kids are busy enjoying their gifts and I'm trying to get myself motivated to get ready for my mom's house. I'd rather lounge around in sweats all day. I did not sleep well last night, so I don' t have a lot of energy.
I'm sorry you're feeling kind of down. :bigarmhug: You're nearly there!! Just take it one day at a time!
I woke up early and could not go back to sleep. Guess it was a rare year when I was up waiting for ds to wake up. I think I was mostly just hungry. Anyway it was a really nice morning. I had some cereal and waited quietly in the living room for ds and dh. Now we are using my old bread maker to make some bread for a party tonight and ds is playing with one of his toys. I might get some of that nesting stuff done today.
Sorry about the lice. I have no experience with that, thank god.
Only 7 more working days to go starting tomorrow.
Sounds like you had a nice, peaceful morning! And yay to only 7 more days of work left! I have off until Jan. 2, and then I have 2 1/2 weeks of work. I am planning on working right up until the 18th, but we'll see how Reagan feels about that ;)
Hopefully we won't get it again...I'll be checking their hair like crazy while we're home on break. I do not ever want to deal with it again, and twice while pregnant is brutal!
I hate being so behind on the thread. I know it's justified but I like being on top of things. Will try to catch up more later today. :D
I hope everyone that celebrates Christmas had a good time yesterday. We only had one (of a few) family get together's yesterday. It was really nice but we were out way later then we expected and DH went back to work today so he got virtually no sleep as he leaves before dawn. Little man has his first pediatrician appointment today so I'm excited for that. We're expecting 10-18 inches of snow between tonight and Friday morning so I'll be amazed if DH goes into work tomorrow. It sucks losing the money as all his paid time is used up, but obviously he can't get to work if it isn't safe.
Im with you Mia im so behind!! Ladies i hope we can keep our board active !! I feel soo sad when I look on other boards and its like completely dead :( ! Its sad especially when you get close to your board members and its like over soo quickly ..
I don't plan on going anywhere ;)
