Moms of Many August

: Welcome :
post #2 of 157
Hello all!
I'm starting off the month with my 42nd birthday! Just got back from a week long vacation....too much driving with 5 kids squished in a minivan! Now mama needs a REAL vacation! Looking forward to my long weekend coming up this month with just the hubby and I in St. Thomas. Anyone been there? Any tips or suggestions?
It's been a very strange summer here, weather wise. I wonder if August will bring more of the same?
Hope you all are doing well!

Happy BirthdayTHANKFULFORFIVE! Your holiday doesn't sound to restful to me!

We are having odd weather here too. Several times we have nipped to the shops on our bikes and had to stay out a bit longer than expected because the heavens have opened and we've had to wait for a dry spell to cycle home in.

Whoops! There was a new thread. I posted this on the other one. Sorry to be a downer.

I don't know if there's an August thread, but I wanted to let you all know that we did lose the baby. I'm having a bit of a rough time right this minute, but I did write out what happened here.
I hoped it would make me feel better, but not so much.

Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers. It's very kind of you all, and one positive thing I can say that came out of all this is that I really did feel uplifted and loved by all of my friends, but online and in real life.

Oh I know. About a month ago we were going to Trader Joes. My 5 year old fell down in the parking lot in a handicap spot. As she was picking herself up some woman tried to fly into the spot and barely gave DD the time to get up off the ground and on the sidewalk. :

Later we were in the store and we were on one side of the isle and another woman was on the other side. DD was walking between the carts and this same woman plowed her way between me an the other woman and nearly ran over DD again. I had to pull her out of the way.

As we were leaving she got in her car and sped off. It was then my 10 year old DD said, "That car doens't have a handicap sticker." :

Happy August. I can't wait til fall!!!!!!!

Thanks, all. My family is coming home today. I can't wait to hold my little guy.

Church people keep calling. I've turned the phones off because I just can't deal right now.

This week I'll be playing catch up. The house went to hell in a handbasket over the last two months.

Hey, so far, so good on the over-the-door shoe rack!
