~*~ pagans foolin' around in april! ~*~ - Page 3

post #41 of 448
Wow. Now, I know that my mind has been preoccupied with other stuff but I am so terribly embarrassed that I've been posting in the March thread. Wondering where everyone was. Knowing it was April, but not making the freakin' connection that a new thread would be up!

I mean, come ON! Where's my brain?! That is just so unlike me.

Ok, now I'll tell you why I'm all messed up. I just found out yesterday that ds's blood work results were even more abnormal than previously thought.
He just had more blood taken yesterday and I hope to Goddess the low numbers were a fluke. Because if not, I don't know how I will get through this.

So please... Light a candle; Say a prayer; Send positive, healing energy, etc etc.
I should get the results on Monday. Please please please let this not be what they are concerned about.

i say go for it. wombat is right, it is NOT cheap. i'm uninsured and i just had 3 fillings replaced, plus a root canal, plus a crown on the root canaled tooth, and so far it's like $3K. i used Care Credit, but still. it'll be years and years before i pay it off. and i have more to go.

mama, that is what duct tape is for. in a half year or a year when she's over it (or years later, after the new baby gets done with the buttons), someone clued me that WD-40 takes off tape residue

well...it'd be funny if it had some context! i don't think i have ever heard it before, and just seeing a picture (and trying to figure it out) didn't really do anything for me. it would be silly calling someone that, though. it's a fun new term. maybe i'll adopt it i get it about the head up the rear. but i didn't get it right off just from the smilies.

oh yeah, i had one of those, too! that was after Rio was not a toddler anymore. the duct tape worked when he was 2 and under. after that i got the armoire, and locked the handles with a baby lock, one of those long ones.

I have a funny tradition with a previous pagan womens group I was part of... when I've moved, since I obviously cannot have you all over for a housewarming/house blessing party... I will take photos after we're settled and have a VIRTUAL houseblessing party! Everyone will be invited to grab a cuppa their favorite beverage and some chocolate of course, and take a virtual tour of our new house hehehe. Silly but fun!

I just realized I haven't made plans to 'cleanse' the new house yet... granted the only leftover energy floating around is from the builders hehe, but I'll still have to plan a little something. But can't stand the smell of sage so I'll have to get creative.
cute house, cari! needs some shade trees though, for sure. i love the bathroom sink! aren't i silly?

a virtual house blessing! just as cool as the Yule ball! let's make it a potluck!

try sweetgrass for the cleansing. sometimes i actually use whatever incense i have on hand, though

oh no, mama! : :

what is it they are concerned about? why did he have bloodwork done? if that's not too personal. you know i'll be thinking about you guys.

oh, and i would've completely missed the April thread if someone hadn't posted a link to it. i did the same thing, not connecting it. it's all good.

hang in there

I can't even type out what the fear is. I just can't.

They were testing for Celiac disease but also did a CBC. Ds's former pediatrician didn't even catch the low white blood count! It was his new pediatrician that caught it.

Hi everyone!

Indigo - I am sorry about the car. How totally sucky.

DoK - I am hopeful that the previous tests were flawed. and that you will get good news on Monday. I will be thinking of you and DS.

Cari - sweet house! I am ready for the housewarming!

Not much happening in my neck of the woods. Hitting the parks. Thinking vacation thoughts!

i wish we had no tv. DH would not go for that. cable will steal your brain... of course the internet steals mine more than the TV .

im going to go for it. i was just worried. i am excited to actually be proud of my smile again. they wont be white but they will be the same color!!

yay beads!
yeah, we do... when it's close, it blends, which is nice, but this far apart, i kinda seperated things, so hidden eggs (we dont hide the basket. never heard of that one til i met dh.) will be april 12th. i'm kinda thinking of it as advent, as we did the bunny house and decorated eggs so far ahead, lol.

Oh DoK... hang in there. Bright light and blessings to the young one... it's going to be ok. It just has to be. Do you have the celiac results? Could celiac cause the other readings to be off? (We're testing dd1 for celiac next week, and I know it can go hand in hand with other autoimmune disorders.)

Duct tape- might work, might work. The computer is a laptop and the power button is right on the work surface (and it glows blue). She only gets interested when I'm actually using the computer... she walks over, takes a look, waves at the smilies, and then PLOP goes the little finger right on the power button as she asks "push?" in a totally innocent little voice. Now, the computer generally requires that you hold the power button down for a certain number of seconds before it "believes" you, but somehow she has managed this a few times.

We bought the laptop (for those who don't remember... this was a year or two ago) after dd1 discovered the joy of computers and managed to trash our desktop computer during the minutes she was left alone with it. Much pain and sorrow followed, and the laptop does have a full replacement warrenty on it as a result of that experience. Hmmmm. It's probably expired, which would explain Ro's sudden interest.

Cari- fun virtual housewarming idea! Sorry the agents are being such blankety blanks.

{Terminology... ummm... yeah. We should stop using the bum/cap expression so as to avoid the "profanity" clause of the user agreement. Given it's wide spread use in the last page or two I'd hate for the thread to be closed. So, ummm. Yeah. To your scattered bodies go. Or edit. Or at least stop using it (though as far as I can tell, the smilies themselves are totally fair game). May your giggles never be lost.}

I'm looking forward to Easter oddly enough. Our Ostara didn't go as planned (that's the day the code truck pulled up and told us the house wasn't really a house) so I kind of feel like Easter is giving me a "do over". Growing up we always had middle eastern food for easter (on the theory that Jesus was from the middle east) and I think it's a nice tradition to follow. Especially since I like middle eastern food! DD1's birthday is this weekend but we're sharing a bday party with one of her friends on the 11th so it's going to be a celebration heavy week... birthday on the 5th, party on the 11th, easter on the 12th.

Oh, and the code guys come back on Saturday morning to do the inspection and decide if we can remain in the house so think happy housing vibes if you can.

cute house, cari! needs some shade trees though, for sure. i love the bathroom sink! aren't i silly?I kinda like the sinks too hehehe. And yes, it needs trees, but sadly it's a new development so all that comes as far as landscaping is turf and a few small shrubs When I buy my own place there shall be TREES :

hehe ok.. can we say someone was wearing a bum cap? that's almost as funny LOL. I'll just continue thinking it in my head I suppose

Can I join in? Definitely not a practicing pagan, since I met DH, but I'd really like to start considering how to incorporate it back into my life.

Right now I'm trying to come up with some way to release the energy from my son's birth to welcome in the new baby.

I think I stared at my (blank) document for about 6 hours before I finally called my BFF up to help me with that one. PM me if you'd like some help.

Low white blood count is really scary. Here's hoping it's not that.

Welcome!

I called my Mom up for help and she told me she was too brain dead to help me I wrote a couple of nonsense sentences earlier and it did nothing. I think I will try again tomorrow and see what happens.

DOK.

Hi Ladies,
Haven't been around because I just can't keep up with the thread. I like all the pagan stuff & how you incorporate it into your lives, but having a hard time finding the time for all the personal stuff. These threads just move too fast for me. And, I'm trying to find the time to work during the day so I can get my business up and going.

However, I did buy "Drawing Down the Moon" and am dying to read it. However, I'm already in the Middle of "Growing Up Green" and need to quit having 2 books going at the same time. It makes it too hard to follow.

Phht.. don't bother with keeping up just pop in whenever you happen to have time and say hi. :
post #54 of 448
But I'm nozy and just must know everything! If someone refers to a situation I'm not familiar with it drives me crazy. I must be in the know.

Besides, you do have to wade through all the personal conversations for the pagan tidbits.

They aren't sure about the Celiac results so they are retesting that, too.

It really is.

Thank you all for the thoughts. I'm going to try to put this in the back of my mind (so I don't start obsessing!) I'll call the doc on Monday to see if they received the results. (I don't like waiting for docs to call me first).
post #56 of 448
DOK- *hugs* celiac can play major crap with your system, so that could explain the numbers. my grandma was very sick before her system got back on track. sending lots of calm to you and lots of healing to ds!- sending love

Clay- sending positive vibes to you for a good outcome!

Cari-great house! :
post #57 of 448
Morning mamas. It has been such a long time since I had a chance to get on the computer. Things have been crazy around here. I hope everyone is doing great. Going to try to catch up now.
post #58 of 448
Morning.

Can someone get my weird dreams to stop? Last two days I have woken up going "WTF was that about?" I honestly have no idea what the dreams are trying to tell me Just too bizzare.

Hope everyone is having a good morning so far!

clay~ sending house passing vibes!!!

cristeen, welcome! congrats on the pregnancy. have you used any form of energy healing? like eft or tapping? or my new fave... i could go on and on and on about it.... feel free to pm me if you've no idea what i'm talking about, lol...

jade's mom, i totally know what you mean about keeping up.... this is basically the only thread i read on mdc (well, and the LOTR and TM threads, lol)... and even then, my time online isnt very regular, which makes it a problem sometimes! but, ita w/cari, just pop on!!! (and lmao about wading thru personal conversations for pagan tidbits. we so need a quote book. heh.)

speaking of pagan tidbits... so, i think i mentioned this at the end of march, but i'll say it again... who wants to host camp next???

happy happy weekend, all! man, that week went by fast!

of course, right?
duct tape works because they can't really see the twinkly lights, but you can still press the button through it. you have to use the regular silver, but i know they have colors out there now too, and i bet anything dark would work.
good luck with the house!
