Hi to everyone who is pregnant after a loss! There seem to be quite a few of us around. Let's get this board moving again!!!!
Yay! Thanks for starting this Alissa!
I'm really excited to get this board going! We should totally start a gtky thread!
So does anyone have any fun plans this weekend? Tonight, T is spending the night with his cousins, and DH and I are going to the Adams Mystery Playhouse for dinner and a show with DH's sister and her new boyfriend. We went once before and it was sooo much fun, so I am really looking forward to it. What is everyone else up to!
Oooh! Date night sounds like so much fun. The mystery theater looks like a riot. You'll have to tell us all about it. I hope T has fun at his sleepover. ~sigh~ Sometimes I miss being a kid. We're going to go visit my MIL and SFIL on Saturday. I always love visiting with them. I'm so glad that I get along with my MIL....lol. Then on Sunday we'll probably just take it easy. I dunno...we never really plan anything. We just kinda go with the flow. lol.
Jina, we are very much go with the flow type people too. Which I think is good in many ways but has really made it hard for us to get into routines with little ones which is so imperative to keeping this house from being crazy land. LOL
DH and I are celebrating out 12 yr anniversary this Sunday...we are going to dinner Saturday to officially celebrate it. I have picked out an italian place downtown...weve never been before but it has great reviews. I love italian, so really looking forward to that. Otherwise just hanging with the kiddos and I am off today so a 3 day weekend. Yay!
Lynn, congrats on your 12 year anniversary! Mmmmm....Italian sounds amazing. I have to watch my carbs because they want me on a Gestational Diabetes diet, but oh I love pasta. You'll have to tell me all about what you get so I can live vicariously through you!
Jina - we have gone one other time before, and it was a hoot! The only thing is, the food is not that great (DH describes it as "Worst wedding buffet food ever" if that tells you anything) but oh well, the show should be great. Also, it will be the first time we are meeting SILs boyfriend. There is a slight amount of drama there because I guess he's much older (like 3 and a divorcee with two kids and everyone treats and thinks of SIL like she's still a kid even though she's 27, so it's a mild scandal. I'm looking forward to meeting him though. Everybody treats her like a kid, but SIL has a good head on her shoulders (she's a freaking engineer, who owns her own home and has a career she loves; she's not a baby) so I'm sure he'll be great.
That's awesome that you get a long so well with your ILs. I do too. It just makes everything so much nicer and easier. Some of the horror stories I hear about some people's ILs give me chills. LOL
Just going with the flow. Unfortunatly, we did have plans for raging waters with my son but then realized those plans had to be revised because mommy can not go on any of the water slides. It was a bummer for me. So maybe a beach day or even just hanging out by the pool. DS wants to go to grandparents house because his new scooter is coming in the mail today and ALL i want to do is spend time with him. Ugh, he is becoming independent and does not need mommy all the time. It makes me sad sometimes.
Lynn, 12 years! WOW, congrats. We are half way there. And every year we add we always say its another year of hell. LOL We love each other dearly. Hope dinner is great.
Alissa, usually those dinner shows never have great food and worst of all over priced. Altough DH & I went on a dinner cruise for out 6 yr anniversary last year and it was great overall. Food was awesome, music was great, and best of all romantic which is something we rarely get a chance to have sine DS is always around.
PN - How old is your son? I was thinking about taking T to a very small waterpark we have near us this week while I am off on vacay. Obviously I won't be doing the water slides, and I think T is big enough for them anyway. They also have a leisure pool (with a play area for smaller kids), a lazy river, a fountain garden, and a sand play area, so I think he and I could have a fun time there.
The food was actually better this time around at the Mystery Playhouse (and the show was HILARIOUS!) so we had a really nice night. I think SILs new boyfriend is older than we thought though because he mentioned having a 22 year old and a 24 year old (SIL is 27...) so....but he seems nice enough. I just think SIL may have downplayed the age difference for her mom's sake. LMAO! Anyway, we had a very nice night.
Oh, that made me laugh about "another year in hell." DH and I have been together for 9 years (married for 7) and our running joke is that you can serve less time for robbing a bank...
Before I comment on my weekend plans, I just want to say.. I've been very lazy and the laundry I have done..it's folded, but still in baskets. My dog (the littlest one) just crawled into the basket like it was her bed. haha!
Anyway, I ended up heading to my moms for the weekend. She lives three hours away in the mountains in VA. I left after work and we went to her land to let her HUGE dog run around. I ended up having an asthma attack, that was fun. Mom cooked a steak dinner that I couldn't even eat half of. But I had a good time with her. This morning, I woke up and could never get my stomach under control. Drove 3 hours home constantly grabbing the plastic bag beside me thinking I was going to puke.
DH was home when I got here... I semi-whined that I wanted a taco salad from Taco Bell and he took the hint and went and got it..lol. Poor guy, he got a chicken taco salad because he knows I like chicken, but ..I really wanted beef. I didn't say anything, I ate it anyway....it was so sweet of him to go I didn't have the heart to tell him. I shouldn't have eaten it though.. now my tummy hurts.
But then it always hurts, might as well eat something I like.
Alissa, DS is 6. And is a tornado most of the time. We ended up at the water park on Sunday. I layed in the wave pool like a beached whale for most of the time and was envious of all the very pregnant bellies I saw. DS ENJOYED the slides. Had a blast. Glad to hear the dinner show went well and food wasn't so bad this time around. Maybe a better chef that night.
