on the second article, it's more a criticism of the other article, than an expression of my experience raising hawk.

i have fun. the kid is fun. sometimes i am tired, or bored of the same story over and over ("read the george! Read The George! READ THE GEORGE! hot ballon!"), but even then, it's just damn funny. i enjoy our time together.

sure, there are times when i am tired, stressed, and frustrated. but that's just life. i had that in my life before i had hawk--so he's not the origin of it.

i don't know. i'm just happy. what can i say? LOL

congrats on the condo.

good luck with NAET! i hope it works for the gut issues!

Fly by but what Zoe said here struck me: Before having children, mostof my frustrations were numb: Bored, so you go out to dinner. Unfulfilled by career, so you wait it out until you can be a SAHM and re-set, etc. My frustrations now as a parent are more passionate instead of numb. For some reason that feels harder, but Zoe points out that maybe it more alive? Going to ahve to think about this more.....

MMM-

Things are coming along with the move. We've started the purging/organizing and packing. It's nice to be able to take the time to do it this time around. Last time we moved, we only found out we were going to have to leave a few days before my due date (thank you landlord ) and we did the actual move when Westley was 2 weeks old. Thankfully we had a ton of help, because I was pretty much useless, but nothing got sorted and purged before we left. I'm hoping this move will be less traumatic.

I am over a letter we got yesterday though. We've been in the process of applying for an individual catastrophic health insurance plan for months now. We had to get physicals and everything, and we received an email a few days ago that they were mailing an offer of insurance to us. It got here yesterday. They want to hike my premium up 46% because I complained of mild stress incontinence at the physical. It's just the dumbest thing I've ever heard, not to mention that the physical was months ago, and I haven't had any episodes of stress incontinence since April now. So now there's going to be more paperwork and phone calls and delay instead of having this all over with. What do they think is going to cost them extra by taking on someone with stress incontinence?

the laser surgery or medication to manage it as you age? IDK. weirdos, those insurance companies.

Freaking absurd, Angelorum. I hope the process goes smoothly.
post #412 of 607
For all the faults and flaws and shortcomings of our public health system, I'm freaking thrilled that we have it. No one cares if I have stress incontinence. And, there's currently a hospital run, midwife managed homebirth trial happening in our area which means that I may even get a homebirth without having to pay a cent! (Note, this is in the same climate that is trying, and close to succeeding in killing independent midwifery and homebirth so it's not all daisies and roses!)

Angelorum, that situation is appalling and I hope you can fix it. I hope the packing is going well too!

TTC #2 is scary for so many reasons but essentially I decided that I wanted to do it now to get it out of the way. Such a weird feeling to be as excited as I am ambivalent. I'm really hoping that I can avoid some of the craziness and wobbly mental health that went with TTC Sebby. I also hope it takes a lot less time!

Oh, and my other news is that a midwife friend and I are going to start a post natal and early parenting support business. It's gonna be awesome. And much more manageable with a small nursling than attending 40hour births! We just need a great business name. Suggestions welcome!

oooh, I think I would like that! No suggestions for a name, but I'll try to come up with some ideas.

The plan we were applying for doesn't even cover drugs, so they can't claim they're hiking the rate to account for that. Surgery maybe, but I'd avoid surgery as much as possible. And MMM that homebirth killing thing is also appalling, I'm really hoping it gets resolved. But on your possible homebirth.

Yesterday was Westley's first birthday . My sister and her four kids were in town, so they all went to the pool with us in the afternoon and then we had dinner and cake at my house. The pool closed after a couple hours due to lightning, but I would have wanted to leave soon anyway for Westley's nap, and they gave us free passes to come back another day for the early closure. Westley had great fun playing with his cousins, and he LOVED the coconut flour cake I made! His poops have been all chocolate this morning Now I just have to tackle the giant mound of dishes we dirtied last night

I'm really hoping these things for you, too, dear! that the first time works and we're in a DDC together

Happy belated Birthday, Westley!

As for me, having a bit of a breakdown today. I thought that I would just lose it if we didn't get pg this cycle (our third ttc since my last m/c), but I didn't realize I would also lose it if we did get pg.
