Clay- go for it! Cats don't take up much space and they are such sweeties! ( except my rather grumpy cat)

Singin- I hope you get answers. Sometimes knowing is good/bad, isn't it?

Let the preparations begin! Making turkey, rolls, cake and cranberry relish. I am tired already!
Thanks Karen, I'm a little better thank goodness. Headache is intermittent now and my throat is a lot better (lots of warm mochas are helping that ) However last night Lucas's temp popped up again and he was whingy so I had to crash on our very short couch next to him... so I'm exhausted again Can't a girl catch a break!? He had this temp/queasy thing sunday night and part of Monday.. then tuesday was head injury day... and the temp popped up again wed night. WTF??!!!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving mamas!

What I'd really like to do is get a massage.
I'll probably do a little work on my website, too. It's just been updated and I think it looks MUCH better. But, I like playing with it.
Reading in a cafe sounds like a nice way to spend the afternoon to me! I love doing things like that, people watching on reading breaks can be interesting. I used to be a website tinkerer as well! I was self taught basic html and such.. long forgotten now though!

I'm going back this afternoon and if she is still there i'll do the paperwork.
*gryn* I hope she's there! I would have had no choice but to pick her up the second she sat down next to Ro, it would have just melted my heart

So, as you saw above... I am in dire need of sleep lol. I slept on the couch from just before 2am till 430am when dh got up (slept is used very loosely there... more like I listened to Lucas moan & groan and rewet his cool cloth regularly etc ) I did get back to sleep after that, but the darn sun was well & truly rising at 430 ah you can tell the solstice is coming.. wish it would come and get it over with so the sun can rise at more civil hours All 3 boys were up by 630am as well... Lucas asking for a nurofen, and yep sure enough, his temp was back up again

I am declaring this week Turkey day break, since it's fairly obvious we are getting nothing done

Maia, not sure if you have flown yet or not... thinking of you and sending CALM vibes your way! I was positively spastic at this point

Pictures tomorrow... kitty is here! We totally blew the textbook "new cat introduction" though. Mike met us at the mall, he checked her out (vet/animal behaviorist stuff), we did the paperwork and then grabbed supplies at Target.

He took his car home, I had cat + kids. Well, about three minutes into the trip the zipper on the cat carrier pulled apart and we had free range cat! She was really good, but free cat + ds's diaper blow out a minute later with screaming + 30 minutes in the car, in the dark, with deer in the roads..... ugh!

Then when we got home I basically grabbed the cat, threw her into the house (with a dog, in the dark) and ran back to get ds. Then ran back to get the cat stuff.

Buit she is pretty chill, VERY loving, and totally gorgeous.

Pics soon...

Clay sounds like kitty got quite the introduction to life with your family!

Hey Everyone things have been crazy insane the past week or so. Hugs to anyone who needs them and Happy Turkey too

Morning mamas,

Clay - yay for the kitty! Can't wait for pics!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating this weekend! I hope it is full of love and family!

I will be doing a doula workshop so I am thrilled! I am hosting it (but not teaching) so I am glad it is all coming together.

I have lots to do today...I don't even know when to get started. DH has been working so much this week that DD is starting to call my cell phone dada. That makes me so sad!

Change of plans. Roo is staying home with me today. He has a low grade fever.

Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends!

Yay on kitty! I'm envious but I wouldn't bring a cat here... DH is not to be left with a kitty... He hates them.

Maia, I'm happy to know it's great but I can wait for updates - you have better things to do than sitting at the computer right now!

Oh, going to dig in the space under the stairs for my Advent candle holder... already only four weeks before Solstice!

Maia-
post #576 of 641
Hello! Regular work day for me, but I hope all of you who are having family time/turkey days have a grand time.

I haven't posted in a few days but did read back. And I've kept starting to post but being interrupted before the third sentence and just having to shut the puter down.

I was rooting for the cat, yay cat!

(And rooting for you, Maia! )

I have not as an adult been responsible for a pet larger than a hamster. Mostly . My family were not really responsible pet owners when I was a child and I have been needing to make sure that it would be different for me. So far so good. I have found my self imagining while reading this thread the feel of a largish dogbody snuggled up next to me. Sorta like how I used to "feel" my babies around me before I got pg.

So sorry that Roo and Lucas aren't feeling well Hope a day of rest clears issues up for them.

Had a lovely moment lately. One of my charges is in K half days and just had a parent teacher interview. This little guy has been with me since he was a baby, and has always gotten to all of his developmental milestones just under the wire -- spoke latish in a very verbal family, didn't see the point of holding a crayon properly until right before K started, etc. Well it was a glowing interview, apparently, and I got a big thanks from the happy and relieved parents for preparing him so well for school on all fronts. I didn't do anything special, we just hung out and played -- very unschooly. But I love him and I'm proud of him, too. I love that his parents see me as having a stake in how he's doing. .

singin angel, my kids have a relationship with "daddy in the phone" too. He's away for work most weeks during the week. It does suck.

There has been some talk of a work promotion for my dh and us moving to a small town a couple of hours away. *Very* ambivalent about this -- I'd be moving away from (feels like I should say `bailing out on') family and friends that I don't want to leave.

But last night I found myself looking really closely at this print I never liked but that dh has insisted on having up on the wall of our bedroom forevah, of a country house by a lake with a great big barn and lilac trees. I was brushing the dust off the frame and fell asleep imagining what the floorplan of that house in the country might be like....never before in the fifteen years we've had that picture thought of opening that door to that country house/country life and walking inside.

Block play is over and small boys are approaching me with books so I have to go.

Love it!!! I was gonna join in the 'do it' chorus...but as I am catching up on several days at once....I'm jumping in on the end of this. I'm so glad you adopted the cat and that the cat is chill enough to handle real life.

I had just gotten accustomed to a pet-free home for a year and then the free cat decided to move in and then we adopted the great dane. Life is busier and messier now, but it is so much more full of life and love.

I'm thinking of Maia today and hoping that her reunion is wonderful and all that she has been hoping for (and maybe a bit more.)

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it. Happy 'Papa's Home on a Thursday' for us.

We don't DO any thanksgiving stuff normally. I usually don't even cook anything out of the norm. But...when I went by the grocery store yesterday for milk they had turkeys on sale for 49 cents a pound. So I could spend $9 on a tiny chicken to roast (my intention) or $6 on a 13# turkey...um, let's see....

hugs to all,

Happy Thanksgiving mamas! Dok, hope Roo feels better soon.

Lucas still has a low grade temp, and now Quinn has started a little cough in addition to his hoarse voice. Apparently there have been cases of Whooping cough in the local area Which would be JUST what I need, NAWT!
So he's not going to kindy, which they will appreciate as he has been just AWFUL for the last 24hrs.. whining and wailing about everything

Thank Goddess it's friday is all I can say
