He does believe in Santa Claus. My parents make a big to do about Christmas every year, so we play along. I think we are going to have such a fun time. Wimberly does look similar and very cute, do you and M ever spend time there?
YES, definitely add sharp cheddar to the casserole next time. It mixed with the cream sauce to make a really yummy cheese sauce. The Swedish Chef approves.
Oh man...I am soooo hungry right now! This thread is not helping, but I love reading it, lol
ETA: Ya'll confused me talking about food over here....I thought I was on the recipe thread. Ok, have my bearings back now.
Alissa, yes I was prescribed zofran but I didn't find it to be the miracle drug some speak of. I just suffered through. Although, I might have had better luck with it during DS2's pregnancy since I wasn't quite as sick with him but I had already written it off at that point. I'll have to give it another shot if I get the pleasure to be so miserably sick with pregnancy again.
Alissa - that sounds like so much fun! I used to go with my mom to Williamsburg - which we used to live right across the water from and they had a ferry so... we'd go and shop and shop and shop. I love my mommy.. She moved to this place..really far away and there's really nothing to do there, but ...those are always fond memories I have so I'm sure T will remember it as well
I've thought about not having "Santa" believed in, but it creates so much fun for those years that they do believe in it, I think mine will definitely believe Santa.
Lynn - I'm starving too! Jina and Alissa make me hungry with all this talk about yummy food!
AFM - I just called the pharmacy to see if my Zofran can be filled yet. I didn't have much hope because they said the 16th, but I am SO miserable and DH is OFF this weekend and I didn't want to spend it on the couch. But alas, no, they can't fill it 'til the 16th. Sooo, I asked how much it would be without insurance (Zofran is really really really expensive, but I get the generic, so...I wasn't sure)...and they said for 30 pills it'd be 57 dollars. FIFTY SEVEN DOLLARS???? I was seriously thinking like 500 or something. I've been miserable for two weeks because I thought it cost so much. SO, DH is out now getting my meds - and some lunch. I'm so flippin excited. Zofran worked miracles for me.
Jessica - I am so glad that you were able to get your Zofran for an affordable price. I hope that it makes a huge difference in the way you feel this weekend. Did you have a nice birthday?
Lynn - Haha, everything crossed that you have a reason to be deathly ill as soon as possible. Are you doing anything fun this weekend?
AFM - Eeeek! I just signed on to host the Do You See a Line board. I love that board because it's so exciting to squint at all of the "maybes" vicariously. LOL I hope I can get it moving again. If anyone has any great ideas about it, let me know!
Alissa, I lurk on the DYSAL board all the time..lol. I will move my screen back and forth and bob my head up and down looking at those pics. I get so excited when I see a line, even if I just made it up!
I really didn't do anything for my birthday. DH asked me (at 530pm) what I wanted (he was at walmart) so I told him to get the movie What to expect when you're expecting. It's based on the book and it's supposed to be funny, but he couldn't find it. So be bought me a card and some dark chocolate. I honestly never liked dark chocolate until like last year, but he remembered I started liking it and his card made me cry....AND he signed it ...however, I also cried over the Pedigree commercial yesterday, so that might be hormonal. Haha. I'm okay with it - he made me an IOU for when I feel better to go out for dinner. He said maybe a movie, I said I'd rather eat..LOL
Took my Zofran as soon as he walked in the door with it. It's helped a little, but I had already eaten something I shouldn't have. I feel like my food is constantly sitting at the back of my throat ready to come out - like it's not getting digested or something. Very weird.
How was everyone's weekend? Mine ended up pretty good. I felt better today, so I got a LOT of cleaning done. DH invited his mom and brother over for dinner and he cooked steaks on the grill. I didn't eat a steak, but I ate some salad and a small bit of potato. Then I ate more salad (mistake). But I had a good time. Then I talked to my mom for about 30 minutes. So it was nice.
Vent - sorry in advance -
BUT - as a CONSTANT worrier - here's my worry of the day. DH cut the grass yesterday. My brother cut it not this past Wednesday, but the one before it. Apparently, the city was out measuring the height of the grass on Friday. It needed to be cut. I won't lie and say it didn't, but DH has been having school and/or work and he hasn't had a weekend off until this one and he was out at 8 in the morning Saturday cutting it and weed eating. Anyway, I rent. My landlord is a butt head, even though we have given him ZERO reason to be. I pay my rent on time, we've only been here two months. So now I'm super concerned that my landlord is going to get a letter from the city about the grass. I looked it up online and it says the letter will either go to the owner (which would be the landlord) or the person registered under the utility company (that would be me). I saw the guy go by from the city.. the guy who told us about it said he was either measuring ours or the neighbor. The neighbor owns a lawn care company so I'm pretty sure it wasn't his... I didn't see the city guy stop, but I wasn't really paying attention. I just don't want a confrontation with the landlord. I try very hard to be in the background all the time. So, I told DH that if the landlord called (for some reason, he ALWAYS calls me, not Tim)..that he's going to have to talk to him. DH said fine, I'll tell him to shut up and lick my... I know he was trying to make me laugh, and I did...but that's probably not the best thing to say.
I know that entire thing had nothing to do with ANYTHING baby. It's just... I can't ever go a day without some problem popping up that I have to obsess about. I hate it. I hate worrying all the time. It makes my stomach hurt and I definitely don't need any more of that!
I have one more week at this store. I went in my store today to shop and everyone's like ohhhh when are you coming back? We miss you!...except my boss. He looked my way, said hey.. I asked him if he could fill out the sheet for my mileage and he said not now, he's busy. ...makes me wonder if he's liking it better with me not being there. Oh look! Another worry! Man..I'm going to bed.
Jessica - Awww, that is so sweet that your DH remembered that you liked dark chocolate and got you some for your birthday. AND signed your card. It's the little stuff that means the most.
I'm sorry that you are so worried about the city notifying your landlord about your grass. I hope that you are feeling a little bit better today. I think the only thing you can really do at this point is just try to make sure that you keep it mowed as often as possible so hopefully the landlord doesn't hear any more about it. I was a little amazed that the city actually comes and measures it and sends notices! I've never heard of such a thing! We live in an HOA community, and I know that they will probably send you a letter if you really let it get out of control (don't get me started about our HOA, they once sent us a letter telling us to repaint our garage door just because it had gotten a little dirty in a big dust storm...) But I've never heard of the city doing it. Hopefully if your landlord does get a notice, he can talk to your DH and you guys can just tell him that you'll try to be more on top of it. Things happen, grass doesn't always get cut perfectly on time. Surely if he's been a landlord for any length of time, he knows that, and won't make too huge a deal over one incident.
AFM - I did have a good weekend, except that I have had a tummy ache off and on all weekend. Sorry if TMI, but I think it's constipation...bleh. Other than that, had a nice restful weekend and didn't do much. Hope you all had a nice weekend as well!
Alissa, how cute that T believes in Santa. We're definitely doing Santa here too. Actually M and I both still receive presents from Santa every Christmas.
We've been to Wimberley once or twice but never really stayed the night. It was fun to walk around and check out the little shops but we didn't really do all the touristy stuff. I'd like to go back and explore the town more soon. It might be a fun trip to take next spring.
Yay for being the host of DYSAL board! I LOVE that board. In fact that's what brought me here to PO. I was pregnant again after my first m/c and I had a real squinter. I was googling around and found myself on DYSAL board and decided to sign up and join PO!
Ugh! Sorry about the tummy ache. Do you take a stool softener? My PNV stool softener (55mg) in them and they really help tremendously. I think you can take Colace (docusate sodium) 50-100 mg daily. Check with your OB about the dosage but mine told me it was perfectly fine to take while pregnant. I've been on these PNV with docusate sodium for about 2 years now and it had really done wonders. I used to have a huge problem with constipation where I was only going once a week. After I started taking these PNV I was going everyday while not pregnant. Now that I am pregnant I go every other day or so. Anyway...sorry for the TMI. LOL
Lynn, haha...we talk about food everywhere. I'm in love with food. I agree with Alissa, I hope you have a reason to be really sick very very soon!
Jessica, yay! I'm so glad you were able to get some Zofran early! Ugh! Now that you know it's only 57 freaking dollars hopefully you can take them as much as you want!
Awww....so sweet of your DH to bring you some chocolate and bonus points for him remembering that you like dark chocolate! I hope you start feeling better soon so you guys can get a date night.
I'm sorry about the grass/landlord situation. I'm sure if you explain to your landlord that the grass has been cut several times since then and it won't happen again he'll understand. And, um, the city measures the grass?! I've never heard of such a thing. WTH?! Anyway, I totally understand the non-stop worrying. I'm a worrier by nature and I'm constantly making myself sick with worry...it really sucks. I wish I could just turn it off but it's something I'm still trying to learn to live with. I know I can get on medication for it but I'm not too fond of the idea. I don't even like taking tylenol. I hope things settle down for you so you can at least have a few less things to worry about.
AFM, My weekend was pretty good. We did some serious relaxing. On Saturday we decided to go downtown and check out a baby store called Wee. They have the cutest stuff! We checked out some nursery furniture and I'm pretty sure I know what crib and glider we're getting. We ended up buying a really cute onesie with a robot bulldozer on it. We also went into Buy Buy Baby and checked out the two strollers we were eyeing. Eeeek....can't wait to start buying some big stuff! We're still waiting to buy the big stuff because we have to clean out the guest room which will be the nursery. We have house guests coming to stay the last weekend of this month so I don't want to dismantle the room just yet.
I have my anatomy scan coming up this Thursday! I'm so excited to see our little Baby Boy.
I hope everyone is having a great Monday!!
Jina - Oooh, how fun to go shopping and start thinking about putting up the nursery. Eeeeep! As of yet, we have done zero work on cleaning out the spare bedroom which is going to be a nursery, but for the moment is just being used as storage. We still have tons of time, but it does make me nervous. LOL
Yes, I have been taking Colace for the past 2 days, and it does seem to be helping a little. I didn't wake up in the middle of the night last night with a stomach ache, so that's a step in the right direction. I just feel so...full...in that area. Gross!
You should come and post on DYSAL! I've got a "True Confessions" thread up, and you could post your BFP if you wanted on the comparison pics thread. No pressure if you don't want to, I'm just trying to get it running a little more quickly again.
