DoK- yoicks! I hope you heal quickly and easily and there is nothing but good news at the end of the wait!
Dental vibes still on their way for the next procedure... is it a children's hospital? We don't have one locally, but a friend of mine has a ds with multiple medical issues and a nearby children's hospital. Her ds is young but really enjoys going to the hospital despite everything since the staff/setting is so supportive of kiddos and their specific needs. It made me realize that our next home needs to be someplace where there is family friendly medical care. Our town rocks the alternative health world, but there isn't much in terms of traditional medicine and when you need that level of care, well... Anyway, I hope it goes super smoothly for you as well as your little!
Nursing school- hang in there! It's going to be ok!
June- Oh my noggy one, your excitement is infectious. I know it's going to get warm and yummy soon, but we actually had a hard frost the other day with morning temps below freezing and today it's barely in the 50s. Hardly summer time. Remind me of my weather related whining in another month when I'm moaning about the heat, k?
Partners/faith- mixing religions is soooo tough, stay strong!
Partners/moving on- also tough. big hugs.
UU- maybe check out the Church of the Wider Fellowship? It's an online UU community, so it may provide a sort of halfway house in terms of findind and integrating with a UU community that is supportive rather than off-putting. I know there can be a huge difference in "flavor" when it comes to individual UU churches. There was one I visited a few times in Stoughton that was just so stuffy and formal and really not welcoming... they even had assigned seats for "regular members" so you could see who donated at what level! (which is historically accurate for many religions, but not really pc today!)
A bright welcome back to those who have been away, a warm welcome to those who just found the thread, and yay for everyone else!
My mini-update... the brakes on DH's car went out while he was driving yesterday. So I missed my evening belly dance class (my "all on my own" time for the week) and then had to figure out how to hit all the necessary spots today with just one car (DH to work, DD1 to preschool, DD2 to therapy, get DH so he could fix the car, grocery store since the cabinets were literally bare, pick up DD1, etc). Plus I had a lot of cramping last night, really ahrd contractions today every time I moved quickly, and the babe has been less bouncy (though still moving regularly) so that's a worry...
Also because of the cold weather my photoshoot keeps getting moved (packed in cold wet clay on a stream bank, nekkid, for a few hours in 50 degree weather? mmmmmm, no) but the gift certificate expires June 30th so it has to happen! DH is going camping this weekend so I'm solo-pregnant-mama, then next week is dd2's bday, then the next weekend we drive to Albany to pick up my MIL and drive the uhaul back to our town/help her move in... plus it's solstice, plus it's father's day! Then the following weekend (last weekend of june) is my deadline for out of town travel (due to possible ptl)... since we had hoped to score some deals at IKEA, that's the last chance. But the foundation to the addition still isn't in, the code office is still threatening eviction if we don't get the addition up soon, and...well... it's a mess!
But I'm laughing.
Why not? It's all gonna work out somehow!
