    Thanks for the advice!! I think we'll probably end up listening to the podcast of the sermon later than night. I'll try to talk him into bringing us home something for lunch or dinner. Maybe I can even convince him to get me an Easter basket - but we all know how he is with presents I just hate being away from family but like you said Meg, hopefully this will be the last year with just us.

    Children mentioned (not mine obviously)
    Meg - I'm so sorry that you can't come to a compromise with church. My BFF's DH converted to Catholism about 2 months before they got married. She is a Methodist minister. They are raising their son in both traditions. In fact, I'm his godmother and DH is the "Methodist godfather" and her DH's BFF is the "Catholic godfather". I'm really hoping that I get to be this baby's godmother too (not sure if it works that way or not).

    Mimi - your dog sounds adorable. I really want a dog and I think that DH does as well. We'll probably wait a couple of years though. Too funny about your parents' dog though. As for lunch, I'm not quite sure. I ate horribly yesterday so I want to do a little better today. I couldn't bring my lunch since I wasn't at home this morning. I really want a green smoothie though. Might have to look into that. Enjoy your sandwich!

    I'll probably make a grilled cheese. Not healthy at all but it's all I have.

    We had a dog but she passed away last year. I think she was about 20 years old. DH got her in his 2nd year of med school and she wasn't a puppy then. She was a pound hound and the most perfect dog. If I could be guarenteed a dog like her, I'd get another one. With us traveling back and forth to the lake and being gone a lot it is so much easier without a dog. Back when we were TTC I wanted a little teacup dog. At the time DH said if we didn't get pregnant within a year, he'd get me one. Now I've done research on them and decided I don't want one. I know a family where the wife is Catholic and the husband is a Lutheran minister. The kids and wife must be Catholic because they take communion but they raise them in both. My SIL is Jewish and BIL Catholic. They put more focus on Catholicism with the kids but do celebration Jewish traditions.

    The thing that frustrates me with the whole religion this is that we had a really tough time getting married in the Catholic church. I had been married before so had to get it annulled but that was way more complicated than the priest led us to believe. We ended up getting married by my Lutheran pastor in our backyard. Because DH was married outside of the Catholic church he couldn't take communion until we got it blessed. A year or so later we found a preist to bless our marriage. We didn't want it blessed by the one that gave us all the problems. (Children mentioned) During all those hassles DH made the comment "if it wasn't for the girls, I'd become Lutheran." So at that time he was ok with being Lutheran but now that things are ok with the Catholic church he won't. Idk if he feels a certain committment to his first wife to raise them Catholic or what. I think had I not had a bad first experience with the Catholic church it wouldn't be as big of an issue.

    Ooooohhhh...and that's who's in your avatar pic right Mimi? For some reason I had always pictured the dog in your pic as bigger. It's funny how you envision things in your head.

    Yes that is Roxie When I tell people that she is a shih-tzu mix they always think that she is little. However, she falls in the medium size (she is 23lbs)

    Can't wait to get home to see the pics Mimi!

    I'm sorry Meg. That does seem not so cool about the church. I can imagine that it was highly frustrating during an already stressful time planning a wedding. Our church practices an "open table" for Communion. I'm very big on inclusion for ALL (yes ALL) but I won't get into that The girls are getting to the age where they can start to show a preference. Is your DH open to asking them which church they would prefer or is that not an option? Sorry if that's too personal.

    My church as an open table for communion also. That is what bothers me so much about the Catholic church. Sorry if I offend any Catholics. I just feel like there is no point for me to go and sit through mass when I can't even take communion. I do it for my family since I really get nothing out of mass. DH would not be open to that. They go to a Catholic school so the girls at the age they are now are very set in Catholic traditions. They try to correct me when I'm not doing something right according to Catholics but then I remind them that I'm Lutheran so I don't have to do whatever. I just wish DH would come to some type of compromise. I'm sure they won't go to hell if they come to a Lutheran church every other week.

    How was everyone's lunch? I hate eating on Wednesdays. I know it sounds stupid. I'm never hungry when I need to eat but I know I need to eat since I leave for work around 12:15. If I don't eat, then I'll starve all afternoon so I have to force something down my throat.

    Like I told you before I am not very religious, just spiritual. I follow Islam, but my religious upbringing was very open. My mother is/was Catholic. My father is Muslim. Both their families were very religious, even thru the Yugoslavian communism. When they decided to get married, mother's family was screaming bloody murder. They wanted my father to convert and he didn't. They decided to get married legally and in a mosque. The reason they decided to do that is because in Islam everyone is considered to be a Muslim, therefore no one has to be converted to be accepted. My mother did not have to do anything than to silently accept the faith before God. My brother and I were raised to believe in God, we were taught to pray by speaking to God (not in a Muslim tradition.) Our parents left it up to us to choose which path to take. When I met my husband (he is Bosnian Muslim too), and our relationship got serious I decided to accept Islam as my faith. Now, this is my reasoning: I do not want to give my children the option to choose. I just don't want my children to be confused as I was.

    Lunch was good! I had my breakfast early because my appointment was at 7:30am, then you mentioned chocolate cheerios and all I could think about was my lunch LOL I hate eating just because I have to too. Why don't you pack some snacks to take with you? Something you can munch on between patients, like crackers, carrots, celery sticks, apple, etc.
