PDX in March - Page 33

post #641 of 667
Well the reason I was asking was because the link (that you didn't look at :P) was to win a free electric water heater from PGE. Was wondering if I should enter. But we have a 4 year old gas heater. We looked into those tankless ones at our old house but they ran on kerosene (which is what our heater ran on) and were expensive. Like $2000. So we didn't get one.

I took campbell bowling today at Big Al's and lets just say...I really stink at bowling. It was nice to get out and do something. Recently my back has been hurting so bad and I am so tired, that we just just kinda stay in and sleep...
and I was wondering if anyone knew of a homeopathic med that I could take to help with my craving for soda? I drink WAY to much pepsi and I've been gaining woo much weight from it

So sorry to hear this (and sorry I wasn't caught up on the big thread to at least say something in person yesterday). Sending comforting thoughts to you and your girls.

I wonder if this is something I never figured out with Maddy? Or if she was just different? I don't know, I have baby-Maddy-amnesia.
kieran is having some BAD bedtimes... we don't even say anything until we know he's tired (cause who would go to bed when you are not?), but he says he is not, while crashing and crying... he's just at his most negative cause he doesn't want to have to sleep! hates that he gets tired daily... i think he's growing too, he's in a BAD mood- lots of no, i don't like you, you are mean, spitting, i will hit you, kicking, i will break things, etc. and his new one 'don't say ANYTHING to me'... like anything about not breaking the door or whatnot. he's really mad at ME too, daddy is so much cooler (and yet daddy is probably more 'bossy' than me, he just sees me more). we literally took him to husband's work on Sat so that he did not have to stay home with me and be mean to me... now friday, i had off- he wanted to go to my work! that part of the day was good, then all this other stuff started up.

Hilarious!

Spottiew- That sounds SO awfully rough. I wish I had something more for you than cyber hugs and sympathy. I've only heard, "I hate you!" from one of my kiddos one time, but it really hurt. Even though I knew she didn't mean it, it still stung. I can't imagine feeling like that daily. My youngest has recently started yelling "Don't talk to me!" "Don't say anything!" I take it to mean she's overwhelmed and overstimulated and just needs a break in general. Although she's usually the only one saying anything and for some reason it is usually in the car when she's just about to pass out.

Jodi- You're in my 'hood!! I'll send ya a PM

you both are near my preschool. im free after 3 my kid is nuts, but plays well!

we do NOT use the word hate... but kieran picked it up at school from one kid- who he got along with just great, but the other kid was trying out that word by saying 'i hate you' with a big smile and friendly behavior... the director said 'oh it happens every fall, they all say you are not my friend, then in the spring they are all hugging'... well, that kid left the school and we are down to' i don't like you' instead... i'm not sure what they can do anymore than what can i do, but it still bugs me- he would not have learned that word at home! the one that is making me almost cry now is 'you go into another room now'.... sounds little, but feels really mean, like i don't want you around, don't want to be by you... i try to suggest other words, 'i don't like IT', 'i need to be alone', etc, but he would rather spit in my face then say he is sorry... well next time, don't spit! i know he doesn't always have impulse control, but this is a sorry game... on ther other hand, he will not respect his dad's body, i am really getting tired of that one. and he's into not listening about safety, which is odd, cause he has known that one for 2 years- he likes to not listen! i guses it's always something with these kids

tiffany, is there anything we can do to help you? clean house? shop? good luck apt hunting... there has to be something.

rahter than looking for a "cure" you could replace it with an alternative. i really enjoy juice, usually grape or orange cut with sparkling water. it gives me the sweet, and the bubbles, without all the high fructose corn syrup and additives, etc.

Totally not caught up . . .

Just got home last night and there was a message from my doctor to call so I did and I guess my pap smear was slightly abnormal so they want me to come back and retest in 3-6 months. She said I tested negative for HPV so that was very promsing. She said it was just ever so slightly abnormal.

So has this happend to alot of you? And then things were normal again at your retest?

I had one that was slightly abnormal 4 or 5 years ago. But they followed it up with a kind of biopsy, where they put vinegar or something on my uterus and then snipped a piece off (ack!). It came back fine, and then I had to come in every 6 months for a pap until I had two "normals" in a row. I still don't know what the problem was....

I had it happen once and they retested and it was fine.
