insomnia+flu=

oh and the fact that I've needed the tv on to sleep since i've been sick..I play reruns of Law and Oder SVU...I'll wake up just to restart my DVR and fall back to sleep....So I rewake up and no tv service...comcast suspended service over a $1.50...SERIOUS??? a dollar fifty??? stupid pricks...then they charge me a $3 charge to take my visa over the phone for a DOLLAR FIFTY
I sure wish I could go with someone else.

oh and I fell asleep before campbell did tonight. She has been really concerned with me being sick, asking like every 5 minutes if mommy is sick. So I woke up around 1am to 9 pepsi's in my bed. Pepsi is my favorite, but since being sick I haven't drank any, which she is concerned about and brings one to me and I'll put it back in the fridge....I figure she just kept bringing them to me for when I woke up...maybe she felt I was behind on drinking them or something?

It must be hard trying to balance the various and sundry needs of so many parents. It seems like there has been a parental schedule change every time the subject has come up. Nice to have a care provider that is willing to try desperately to accommodate parents, but shit! It can't be easy.
Dang, PMS got me again on that one! : You may have found THE right place if the preschool owner is checking in to see how you feel.

And ughs, PLEASE send some good vibes my way! I deposited a check last weekend that they are holding because of the size of it. Half will be available Saturday and the other half the next Saturday! Can you believe that? In this day and age, I don't see the need to hold a check for more than two days. It's like they have a guy on a horse riding between banks and bringing back bags of gold before the dumb check can clear. Today is my last day to pay rent without a penalty and being frowned upon. The branch manager said that if the check shows up in the system today, he'll lift the hold since I'm such a stellar customer, I mean, since I've had the account for a long time. So send some check-seeing vibes my way! It will especially suck if we have no money for my birthday on Friday. It's so frustrating to see the numbers on my bank account but not be able to access ANY of it!

Oh, and, all this wouldn't have happened if I had waited until Monday to go to my regular branch! Instead, I thought a large check should be put in the bank right away. So I drove to Albertson's in Milwaukie to deposit it, and it turns out that was the wrong idea. Branch manager could have immediately lifted the hold, but Albertson's couldn't cause they're not where I opened my account! That's the last time I ever try to be responsible!

If you read all that, thanks for listening. :

Have a lovely day! :

Yeah, but isn't there usually a storm that lasts for 10 - 12 days after the retrograde ends? I haven't looked to see what it is this time, but have heard of that.

Our car... well, the cruise control isn't working now. So... either Todd bumped something on it when he was either removing or installing the starter, which was a BITCH to begin with, or our computer is going out.

Occam's Razor is telling me he dinged it, but my fear is telling me our computer is dying, and we will be without a car soon.

Car vibes needed?

Yeah, that happened to us once. I can't remember if it was when we got the IPO, or when we got Todd's first big paycheck. May have happened both times, and it SUCKED! I hope they can find it, because seriously. People DO have bills to pay!

I think they mainly do it because it takes longer to verify funds on something that large, and they don't want you to get screwed. Oh and of course:

SO glad to know it ended. Some funky last-minute stuff for SURE, though!

Aww she's so sweet. And that is stupid about comcast. "Customer service" doesn't mean sh!t anymore in this day and age. Sigh.

Mine is definitely not over. Car won't start. Again. I am starting to have a really bad feeling about this.

Todd took her in the work truck, and I'm going to drive it around this morning, because I haven't driven a stick shift since 2002.

As does the last minute change. And the fact that she didn't remember I'm coming tomorrow. And the fact that she didn't remember what day I was requesting care.


UGH!

Also, where is Jill lately?
I've been wondering about Jill too . . .

That does seem like alot of kiddos for 2 people to care for. I saw your next post too and I'm glad that she reached out to you to see how you are feeling.


Personally I am hoping that if I just stick my fingers in my ears and go "lalalalalalalalala" the whole preschool decision will just go away. So far so good. It's down to a faint whisper. Sounds like this hey! hey! preschool? preschool? hey! hey!

I just started baking a batch of almond cookies I made the dough for yesterday, and I suddenly realized I had accidentally doubled the butter. They're delicious. I'm going to adjust the ingredients for the rest of the dough when I make the rest, and then we will have almost twice the cookies!
Laura - I would love to have the almond cookie recipe. I love almond cookies. I want to make some that taste like th almond cookies you get a a particular chinese resturaunt in NY instead of fortunre cookies. They are moon shaped.

Aww, that's so cute and sweet!

Candice, I hope your money appears today! Damn those check-holding policies. All Cliff's paychecks get held for two days now that Chase took over Wamu. :

Maddy fell flat on her face last night. Her nose bled a little and she's got a big fat lip. My poor baby. I held her for a long time, well after she went to sleep. She had fallen asleep on the couch, and fell off.

this sounds so promising :


i'll think promising check vibes for you, candice. how frustrating! they used to do that to doug


@ campbell and the pepsis. that is so cute!

kindy roundup was neat. there were lots of only moms there so clearly we weren't the only ones with the childcare conundrum. (a few were moms from daycare). i hope at least one or two kids that he knows are in his class. i am totally torn about full day or half day. i'm ticked about the possibility of paying $335 for public school but found out last night that half day is only from 8 until 10:40. i expected it to be until 11:30 or so (i really had no idea). the half day will focus on the core math and reading and the full day will have more opportunities for art and social science, etc. i'm so torn!!!

Aww, well THAT was a rude awakening, I bet! Poor Maddy!

Ericka, that is just darling about Campbell. She is so sweet.

Jessica, I'm glad to hear the roundup went well!
post #153 of 1116
: for our visit with the preschool today! Here I thought I was passed all my school anxiety 10 years ago. Bah!

Super cute Ericka, drink up!

Oooh, I'd have have a tough time deciding too, Jessica. How can less than 3 hours be considered a "half day". Here I've been counting on school to enable me to go back to work full time.
post #154 of 1116
Sara, you're definitely not alone there. It was something I relived until this year when I saw how settled she was socially with her friends. I was really worried for a while, because she's a unique girl. Her friends are unique too though, and they all have a great time together.

Hopefully, we'll get our car sitch figured out soon, because I just unpleasantly discovered that the speedometer does not work on the truck! :

Candice- for the very FIRST time ever that almost happened to me......
Friday I got my paycheck. I went down to the bank. The woman at the counter looked at it and said "i need to get my managers signature"...ok whatever....manager comes over and says "if I sign it, i am putting a 2 day hold on it".....well I made a BIG stink and another manager came and signed it...how stupid.

:i do love my daughter
post #158 of 1116
oh yeah - i forgot to say your day downtown sounded FUN laura, despite the toddlerisms. you are awesome for doing it anyway


yep - i was counting on K being free so i could afford some childcare for ebin. less than 3 hours seems a little too brief though.

I found that the last time I took campbell, this past summer so she was 2, that there wasn't very much available for kids that age...was it just me? Did I miss something?
