Jina - That's basically what this is, self imposed rest. They told me to take it easy, so I decided that probably meant that I should take off work, send T to play at daycare (since I have to pay for it regardless), and just sit on my butt for the next week and a half! Omygosh, forgot about the chat! Yes, I will be there!
Today I didn't know what I felt like for lunch, so I ran to Whole Foods and picked up some tofu salad rolls (good, except the rice paper is a little rubbery) and some Artichoke and Pea Bisque. What did you end up having?
As for M's birthday present, he is always on the go, what about a nice messenger style bag to carry all of his stuff around?
Bonita - That is nice that your Hubby can take over for you to let you go to the store. What all did you get at Hobby Lobby?
To everyone else, hi!!!
-Alissa, mom to Tristan (5) and Reid (the baby!)
Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
Alissa - Enjoy your vacay!
Jina - Men are so hard to buy for. I like the messenger bag idea, I actually sell those (two types).
Bonita - Good luck with the homeschooling
Clarkton (Lynn) - Hi! So good to hear from you, and CONGRATS
Hey to everyone else Been so busy lately! Nothing real exciting to report. Saturday they're having a kid's fashion show at Dillard's at the mall and Hannah wants to be in it. Should be fun!
So today I bought some craft books at the used book store. I am excited about the idea of making a doll house out of boxes. It is so cute. I just know my girls will love it and I bet I could make it for less than $10. DH and I want to do more craft/home made presents for Christmas this year. This will be the first year we will be home for Christmas in several years.
That sounds like fun, Bonita.
Alissa, lol...sounds good to me! Now I'm craving Whole Foods! I love their white pizza but only from the Kirby location in Houston. I also want some broccoli crunch! Yum! I ended up eating a tv dinner...yuck. I really need to stop eating so much processed junk.
A messenger bag is a nice idea except he's not the type to carry a one. He has a back pack that he uses all the time. I'll have to think about it some more.
Bonita, yay! glad you're getting your shopping started so early! Hehe...I'm bad. I don't even start my shopping until after Thanksgiving. BUT, I do have the list completed so shopping is pretty painless for me. I do majority of my shopping on-line!
Mary, Awww....the fashion show at Dillard's sounds like so much fun! Plese share pics!
Hi Jina! Will definitely try to get plenty of pics to share!
Mary, Yay! I can't wait to check them out.
AFM , I just want to thank everyone on this board and especially the ladies on this chat thread for all the support I've received for the past two years. I really don't think I could have made it this far without you guys. I feel like I've made some really good friends on here that I'll always treasure. Out of respect for the ladies who are currently going through a loss or ttcal, I will be moving over to the pgal board. I hope this isn't goodbye....just...see you later.
Ditto to what Jina said. I have truly enjoyed getting to know each of you, and consider you dear friends. You have been there for me through two losses and all of the anxiety and excitement of TTCAL, and I truly value the support and friendship you have shown me over the past two years. However, I would never want to make anyone who is TTCAL uncomfortable, so I will move over to the PGAL board as well. I hope to see everyone around on the boards, and most especially on the PGAL board.
