Nic - Any chance you could beg off family trip to prepare for the upcoming school year? I think you have a solid case for needing a little solitude to get ready. So sorry you're back around to a dark spot.
Thank you mamas for talking me down. :) I do like Jo's questions and ask them to my wannabe grazers. I'm also very thankful that they are children who will eat everything. I guess it's mostly an issue of me and dh getting on the same page wrt how to guide choices and some firmer guidelines for appropriate snack times. We generally have never been much of snackers, I was never the mom who remembered to bring water/juice box/fruit leather/pirate booty/grapes/raisin...
Good morning mamas,
Kerc - Just generalized anxiety? Or is it pre-school year stuff? Anyway I hope it subsides.
MelW - You are amazing! I hope the night was quiet and peaceful or else fascinatingly busy.
Gaye - It's kind of sweet that you and Date #2 are working so hard to get another date.
Lofty - Your birthday dinner sounds delish. Good luck with the new RP! That's exciting!
RR: RP couldn't run today so I'm going to take dd1 out for a...
Good morning mamas,
RM - Sending prayers toward you and FIL.
Geo - That's a lot of sickness going around! I hope your family is done with it all.
Real - I hope that a new path reveals itself for you that's better and more inspiring.
Lofty and Jo - I'm a little confused but I know they are coming or have come and I want you both to enjoy them whenever it happens.
MelW - That cake looks awesome! I'm getting really excited, that trip is...
Just back from the vet where our old dog headed off into the sunset. It was all very peaceful and the vet was very compassionate. I feel like a great weight has been lifted, now to find the time to rent the serious steamer to clean the upstairs and start to contemplate having to refinish the floor downstairs to eradicate the smell.
Now I'm taking the kids to court because dh is having a hearing with a bunch of witnesses and he wants them to see...
Gaye - Glad you had a fun time with your date today. Here's to many happy returns. :)
Lofty - Isn't your birthday imminent? Any plans?
Geo - Oh my, that remodel sounds like quite a nail-biter! And yahoo for a good therapist fit, more for a better meeting time.
MelW - would MIL instead of studio be a good thing?
Mommajb - Don't sweat the spelling (say I as I tye on a terrible work computer with a crap keyboard) just blame the...
MelW - Yes, I recognize the flood of high-energy kids dumped on registered for extra-curriculars. My two are still traumatized by the spring break camp I put them in this year in which every total PITA kid in the district was also enrolled. I finally made the obvious connection though to those kids and why some theatre programs are 'by audition only'. I'm sure now that those auditions are about attention span and following directions more than innate talent. And a...
Tiredly checking in for a peep at Gaye's date. Glad it wasn't painful and a good ice-breaker for more hopeful ones to come. I wouldn't want to talk on the phone much either.
Kerc - You sound uber productive. I've been gradually working my way through my closet. I'm thinking I've been smaller enough long enough now that I can get rid of the 2 size up stuff I never wear.
Jo - What's the opposite of francophile? I think I might be that....
Me and my miracle elixir. I might have skipped it but dd went all negative on my class today and pointed out every annoying thing that happened with the new kids. Left to my own devices I think I would have felt just fine about it.
Pass the merlot.
