Seriously, now, where is Christina?

I just wrote on her facebook wall too... but it seems she hasn't been on there much lately either.

Anyone hearing from her?

I know people come and go from these boards- I actually miss a lot of our Moonbeam mammas who used to post fairly regularly (at least during pregnancy!), but, Christina was always around!

Come back, Christina! Tell us you're ok!

I'm betting she's a bit overwhelmed with school/work/family. We all hope you're ok and need you to drop in, even if it's just to let us know you're still alive.

Lots of love to you, girlie!

I think you're right, but, it's just not the same around here without her! Smile

I'm so sorry ladies!!!! I miss you all, rest assured, my life has absolutely nuts right now!!! So yes, here it is 6:30 and I'm ready to go to work the kids lunches are packed my brekfast, lunch, AND dinner are packed and I've got like 5 minutes before I have to start getting the whole clan up so I thought I'd update (thanks for the fb nudge, Mara!)

1. Christmas was overall good. 3 of us got stomach bug on Christmas Day Sad but otherwise was nice.
2. My ex-MIL passed away on the 29th of December very suddenly (her spleen ruptured and she had massive infection that over-took her organ by organ in a matter of a few days). that was really hard for my kids - they were very close to her.
3. I've started school!!!! Talk about a total time suck!!! I have no time to think anymore. My DH has been amazingly supportive so I spend any amount of free time I have with him - he's a very high-touch person so not having me around is really tough on him. Monday he took me for a couples massage - awesome!!
4. Work is crazy. I am the project manager on a very high profile project and it takes every minute of every day at work. I have to get up in front of 450 people next week to present the project!!!! Totally nervous about that.
5. The side effects from the bp meds have subsided except for the cough. The cough is really really bad. I go back to the doc in a few weeks and I'm going to aks for a different med. But my bp is under control Smile
6. I've lost 9 lbs over the last 8 weeks. Slow, I know, but it's progress in the right direction. Especially since it was over the holidays too!
7. I need a root canal Sad This is a tooth that's already had a root canal but the crown isn't right so infection got in and it hurts. That'll be done next Friday - ugh.

Ok, that's it in a nutshell. Gotta head up to get the kiddos up now but just know that I love and miss you all. pg.org needs a droid app so I can check and post with my new Kindle Fire (DH got it for me for Christmas) or my phone. That would make it easier for me and after all, it's all about me isn't it?????

Hugs to all of you and give your moonbeams (and their siblings) a huggie from me too.

So glad to hear from you ! Great great job on the 9 lbs, that is awesome! And as the spouse of a person in school and working, I feel for both you and DH, it is a lot to take on and I admire you so much for tackling it! Good to "see" you on here Smile

Hey! HI YOU! We were all sick on NYE, so, I know all about that! Sorry about your ex-mil, especially for your kids. Sad

Way to go on 9lbs! Also 9lbs in 8 weeks is, as far as I'm concerned, impressive- hardly slow. It's also what they call sustainable. So again, go you!

Good luck with school! Are you enjoying it at least?? I'm glad your hubby is being so supportive! Smile

Now, someone get on that droid app so we can have Christina back! Smile

It's great to hear from you! I'm so sorry to hear about your kids' grandma. Hugs to them. Boo about the root canal too.

And I agree with Mara--9 lbs in 8 weeks is superb!!! Go you!
