Glad it''s a wee bit better at least!

Ugh. Why anyone would remain near someone who would take their child and refuse to return them just boggles the mind

Cari--- I appreciate your love of coffee. I don't know what I'd do without. DS's dad is a coffee roaster for a local shop and the aroma permeates everything he touches, mmmmm
Hehe awesome job!

Coffee = elixir of the Goddess

I totally wish I could use that group... but th possiblility of anyone being in Aussie on there and wanting exactly what I have is slim to none

that's awesome

omg.. we actually SLEPT. Quinn slept, no coughing from Connor either. Dunno when Quinn relocated to our bed in the night, but he wasn't as irritable as previous nights thank goodness. He is still rather chesty and sinusy though, so we're gonna hang out at home yet one more day. I suppose I'll take his wee sample to the lab when dh gets home, although I'm pretty sure it's a waste of time.

Going to a new doc Friday afternoon about my elbow. Hoping for some real answers and a referral for PT.

I really like that book. My 2 year old rarely makes it through the whole thing - unless he just wants snuggles and the book part is incidental. He really likes
Owl Babies.

I need more magic in my life, I think. I see some daily things as magical, but I find myself feeling in search of something more on a mystical-woo-woo-bend the laws of nature sort of magic. I wish I knew more about ceremonies and rituals and whatnot, because I reckon I could use something like that in my life.
You're welcome to steal it! Useful saying, that.

I was a serious...well, during Y2K I was positive the lights would go out, and it would be TEOTWAWKI for sure, and though I don't really go there anymore, I still do have survivalist tendencies.

Magic: I highly recommend Phyllis Curott's book "Witch Crafting".

Up, the above co-worker got her daughter back just before we left work yesterday.

What craziness! I met someone like that, once. She emailed me in a huge crisis, begging for sanctuary, and ended up going back to the guy the next day. I felt so sorry for her 4yo, who was acting out like crazy, attacking my then-8yo out of the blue. My poor ds was totally bewildered. She moved with her ds and her guy to a city 2 hours away, and I haven't heard from her again.

So do it! It really is that easy. No, I don't want to be an herbalist. Lots of great knowledge, but no money in it. I do it for fun and for my own household pharmacopia

Now that's some awesome news!

Taking a bit out for me, of course, first...I want to go out to lunch, dang it. I haven't been out to eat in forever.

Thanks!

What in the world is "body glue"?? Or "sock glue"?? Whatever they are, they don't at all sound like they should be synonymous

Boo for estate grumbles. And good luck with the epiphany!

Well, I don't drink anymore, and I'm not Irish...but I will be, by marriage, in a couple days, as well as Catholic-by-marriage (or by handfasting, anyway).

Yay!
It may very well be the med. Lots of meds cause dizziness. You can look up the side effects online. May be as simple as not getting up quickly till you're off the meds

I don't get incredibly bothered by it, i just don't really participate. I'm not even remotely Irish anyway hehhe. Now some corned beef or colcannon, I'm down with that any time, not just one day in March I do LOVE all things Irish.. as well as scots (which dh does have not to far back scot ancestry)

DOK, good luck with Physio. Dh has had physio on tennis elbow as well as chronic shoulder pain from repetitive stress injuries. It's really helped him to do the excersizes for them both.

Clay, did I mention your hair is very CUTE!?

Robert Jordan's series "Wheel of Time" (?) is like that... huge enormous books, come out every other year or so?.... so he spends the first 500 pages rehashing, then the next 1000 pages developing the next chunk of the story. i got tired of it after book 3 or 4.

Well... celebration were premature... pain came back with a vengeance. Had to take codein this afternoon... Seems like I need to choose between heavy dizzyness causing nausea(from 600mg Advil) or invalidating pain. 400mg of Advil is not enough...

I love persnickety! One that really had DH going, and even totally stumped a friend of mine who totally prides herself on having an extensive vocabularly was "twitterpated". They didn't believe it was a real word until I made them look it up! That was a good moment

Any thoughts about St. Patricks Day? I dislike celebrating a Catholic saint who began the systematic destruction of a culture and religion. I also dislike making a religious holiday into a drinking fest. But I also feel like it is a good way to talk about family history – both DH & I are of Irish descent (although I have some Norwegian to balance it out). We’ll be doing something the following weekend for the equinox – not sure yet, likely weather dependent.
Cool link, I'm sure DS will love it!

St. Patrick's Day. Hmm honestly with us being fairly new to Paganism, I never thought much about it. But to be honest, I've always felt it was more a non-holiday and never really did much about it in the first place, so I guess I'll stick with that!

On the fun side though.... I GOT MY HAIR CUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How's she feeling now? And you new hairstyle definitely suits you! Oh, yeah, and that horrific song? It's now stuck and repeating in my head. Thanks! LOL!

Maybe I'l make a "basket of snakes"! We're a solid 2 months from real spring and I don't really have the space right now to start any seeds inside, but maybe we'll do that in early April and celebrate the coming Green Up & Leaf Out.

Incidentally - In my apparent determination to require my children needing therapy, on Easter Sunday I'm taking them to see an owl - the Easter Owl - who eats Easter Bunnies. This time of year I lead owling walks "owl prowls." One year my kid's walk was the night before easter & I gave the kids chocolate easter bunnies so they could be like owls. The kids giggled & howled with delight. Some parents were horrified. But I love my kid's owl programs - "the gross, gory & cool." It's all about how owls kill, puke, poop and do other nifty things, and I teach them really big words like crepuscular. 5-8 year old love it - I've even had them thank me for using big words.
Apparently a year or two ago the local Pagan organization went bowling on St, Pat's day and littered the bowling lanes they were using with rubber snakes (they didn't leave them or cause a problem with it). I'd definitely be on the snake side I think!

The Easter Owl is hysterical in kind of a sick and twisted way...I love it! DH loathes Easter the most of any holiday. I don't know, something about his dad poaching a deer out of season and DH going to look for his Easter basket and pulling back the shower curtain to see a dead deer draining in the tub kind of ruined it for him I guess. He was around 4 yrs old.

Assuming codeine = some type of Vicodin or hydrocodone stuff? Something an old dentist told my mom a few years ago that we've both used when we've got the major dental issues going on was to take 1/2 of the vicodin and 4 ibuprofin together. Since the pain meds usually are mixed with tylenol, and you can safely use tylenol and ibuprofin together, there's no interaction. The ibuprofin seems to give a really good punch to the other, and you avoid a lot of the icky-feeling issues and are pretty functional still as you're taking less of the pain meds. Works better than anything I've ever tried. You may want to call and see if they'd suggest you try that. I hope this is resolved for you soon!!

~~~~~
WOW! I made it through! Going to post before I lose it!
post #149 of 649
Hooray, that long post didn't get eaten!! LOL!

Today was ok overall. In the red tent, so a "great" day just isn't that feasible LOL! Not to mention spent the afternoon/evening with the in-laws. MIL brought lasagna for the adults, and since she'd asked and I'd told her the kids don't like it, she made it a point to bring something completely different to heat up that they would like. That was VERY nice and considerate of her, and I can honestly say I appreciate it. I still totally don't get the woman, and we're probably never going to be best friends or anything, but I don't hate her and I can certainly make the effort to get along with her! She'd learned I'd been sick just last week, and I'm pretty sure that's why she brought something for dinner that would last a couple of meals. LOL so I'm not about to complain about her! She's just a very different person than I am and it causes tension more often than not. <shrug>

I ended up getting together with some of our friends today. I'd wanted to run my calendar of ideas past the one; she's on the board of the pagan organization. Then others started showing up and it ended up in a huge discussion that was actually really positive. I think overall a lot of progress was made, they're going to try to revive the organization while they have the chance, and things look good. It's been at least 3 years of people just slogging through, 2 times to Perkins for dinner a month, one meeting a month that no one goes to, Yule celebration, lather, rinse, repeat every.single.year with maybe 1 outing beyond that. I guess they'd forgotten what all they CAN do - like why just celebrate one of the lessor holidays? Why not have a day at the lake or park with a cookout and fun time for those who just want to celebrate the day with others? Why not do a parks beautification day followed by a picnic? None of it has to be majorly detailed in planning or cost a lot! If nothing else, people are now talking again, and excited about where they can take things.

So, all in all, not a bad day for the most part!

hehehe.. I'm a huge fan of the series. But then I LOVE the characters so I'm kinda committed till the end It's not too much of aproblem for me because I speed read through the parts that seem like 'review'. You know he died a year or 2 ago? Before he died apparently, he chose the author to complete the series, and that's who wrote the last book (using RJ's notes) and it was pretty good

Well crap I hope the codeine helps a little at least? I must have a total cast iron system... I have, in the past, taken 800mg of motrin for fairly good periods of time (major knee problems in the past) and I don't so much as get a tummy ache!

That was really nice of her to do especially on the tails of you being sick! Sometimes MIL/DIL just can't be great friends... and that's just life I guess. But I think it's so much nicer for everyone is at least amicable can be achieved

Sounds like a very productive day with your pagan group... so many things fall by the wayside due to lack of interest and it sucks. And then people bitch about there being NOTHING.
post #152 of 649
Bringing my car to the mechanic this morning. Then to the doc.

Also have to call ds's school to let them know he'll be going back in September (as long as his immune system has improved a bit.)

Valérie- I'm really concerned about your pain. Do you still have a fever?

DH is making breakfast, and the in-laws are coming tonight, so massive amounts of cleaning need to happen today. Not sure if I have the motivation to do it, though....

OK, so what are chooks?
The credit card people upped my interest rate because of a stOOpid mistake...I have an automatic w/d from my checking account, and apparently for a couple of months, I was paying less than the minimum balance. So, they took that as I was in arrears (instead of letting me know ) and so what they do when you're in arrears is, up the interest rate. If I pay at least the min, every month for 6 months, it will automatically lower again. But still. How aggravating.

Ya, you betcha I'm going to have better things to do than be online
Besides that , we're going to see the new Alice in Wonderland, I'm dragging him to an AA meeting at some point (it's like bar hopping, for me ) and he wants me to see some TV show at midnight on Monday , and I might meet his dd this time. Oh, and he has his interview on...I think Wednesday, so I'll have 6 hours alone. I may go to the library or walk around in the park. Or read my book. Or, more likely, surf the TV since I don't have cable at home and it's like candy to me

That's annoying...that's what I hated most about the Harry Potter series, and the Ayla ones.

Aww, poor you! You know you can take 800mg ibuprofen-- I had a minor surgery once and that's what they prescribed. Also after DS was born (via emergency C-section) and the morphine swelled my hand, and the percoset made me stOOpid, I switched to ibuprofen and did just fine.
Hope you feel better soon!

I think I am all packed...just a few loose ends to tie up. Got my boarding passes printed and all I have left to do is make sure my bills are caught up, get some things out of the car that don't need to be there, get ds's meds ready for the housemate to administer, and return some stuff to the library.
WOOHOO!!! I so can't wait!!!

Poor M...he has so many issues, some legal, and especially medical, that he wonders why I would want him I was like, sweetie, in sickness and in health, remember? No matter what. I love him no matter WHAT. We may not have a whole lot of time together, but I fully intend to make the most of what we do have. I love him.

I love that train ride. The reason we ever took it to begin with was, the first time I visited, it was Thanksgiving, and he found out from lots of people that it would take for-bloody-ever to drive from the airport on Thanksgiving. But now it's becoming a "tradition" for us It gives us time to reconnect, and he doesn't have to be stressed by the driving all the way home. And he says "I love it now because that train leads to Pammy"

Only him...anyone else called me Pammy I'd slug 'em

ETA: oh, and YES...our time together is always a honeymoon But this time, a real one, as we're handfasting on Sunday

I found it sickening, silly, funny, cheerful - almost went to rent the movie through netflix - and then stopped myself just in time.

ds really liked it. (but he liked the youtube movies of simon's cat more: http://www.youtube.com/user/simonscat#p/u/6/w0ffwDYo00Q )

your DS is right. it is the stuff they cant digest. they hack it up like a hairball. if they cant hack it up they die. i learned it from Dirty Jobs. lol. love that show. they contain mouse skeletons and other stuff they cant process.
