All the sense! That's how my deck found me, too. I was positive I wanted this other one, but that one kept calling me back again. So I bought the one that wanted me. That was something like 20 years ago, and I have never regretted my decision

Wow, that is awful. I'm so glad you're feeling better! I would have freaked also, thinking it was a heart issue. How did they even figure to test for MSG? How did they realize it after, from the tests? Sorry for the 20q's, I am just interested

Mama, you do not look remotely like you are old enough for all those babies Especially the older ones.
Your celebration looks awesome, and your property is so pretty! Great idea, masks...I'll have to remember that for next year.

Mamaofthree, thanks for sharing your Beltane blog entry. How wonderful! And happy birthday to your baby!

Mine will be four on Tuesday. Have to figure out a time to slip out and pick up a present. Maybe I'll take him with me tomorrow. He has been into my beading supplies and making necklaces for everybody, so maybe I'll print off a Michaels coupon and let him pick out a bucket of glass or wooden beads to work with. Dh is away till the weekend so we will put off our family party till then but I want to do SOMETHING on his actual birthday.

Condolences, Veda. Hope that your celebration went ok.

I'm envious, Val! I'm waiting till next weekend for celebrations to begin.

Not happy about circuses either, Shadowmoon. I gave away a couple sets of circus toys that someone insisted on giving my kids because it just felt so wrong even having them in the house.

Keep us updated on the countdown,Maia!
I slept right through the event that I was supposed to take my kids to but woke up feeling functional, if not well. Hoping that if I take it easy tonight I'll be ok to work tomorrow.

That is a scary story, Aeress. I am so glad you are feeling better. Hope you get some real answers about what is going on there.

That is a beautiful deck, Mamachrys! I get that dizzy/giddy feeling about crystals sometimes, and while tapping, sometimes.

I think the advice to wait a bit is good though...surely TO must have some occult shops downtown that you could browse through? I bought my first deck at the Worlds Largest Bookstore there, but I don't know if it is still there? I haven't been to TO in a decade...

I'm sorry your me time got interrupted, DoK How unfair and frustrating.

And that your daughters were being so `dramatic', Clay. Rescue remedy sometimes helps when my sons get into a mood where they can't help upsetting each other.

I hope to heck M really does go get his window unit at his dd's tomorrow...One, because with his leukemia he really gets knocked by the heat, and Two, because if it's really hot when I get there, I am going to die. I don't handle heat well. Plus he probably won't go get it while I'm there, because his dd lives with his ex, and she's...well, they both have issues with me, or the idea of me, and I haven't met any of them yet ( whatever).

Good idea on the Rescue Remedy. I'll have to try to remember that one!

Well, yay! Wasn't trying to, honestly...mind if I ask how old you are? You look like you could be their older sister, srsly. How old are your kids?

Where the heck is everybody? Enjoying Beltaine? Clay, Cari, Aweyn, where you go? Femme Rouge? Gun? Lioness? Anybody??....anybody home???

It was something like 83 here today, and very, very stormy-looking, but no rain. Hopefully tomorrow. The NOAA site says 90% chance, but here that means it could storm or it could be bright and sunny I know where M lives, it's still 82 right now, and it's like 8:30 at night

Our celebration went well today, even if we had to muster up the extra courage to make merriment. We had an altar full of bereavement candles--it was needed, and we also had a figure of Pinocchio on the altar, since the newly departed woman had a gigantic and lovely collection!

There were good feelings, all around, happy generations of pagans and others alike, and the maypole went great- it took us for-ever to get the ribbons off, we try to 'slip' them off the tapered top but the ribbons got caught in splinters occasionally, and were a slow chinese-finger-trap-style PITA. But we did get the weave off in one piece- and it's hanging over the fellowship door with last year's. Some folks got pictures, and when I get them I'll share them. I'm really grateful to our fellowship for going along with this for the 2nd year in a row- it's not like they have to let us have a Sunday morning service for this. I'd like to continue this yearly at our fellowship, whether or not we are given the morning service time. We had such fun!

Then after the potluck, I crashed. Soooo out of energy. I feel better now, though; and hope to 'make it' through the evening w/o another nap

Animal circuses: I'm not down with those, either. I went to RBro. as a child and with the clowns, mad animals, fearing for the acrobats, etc. I did not leave delighted, as a spectator should. I don't think my kids are missing out.

Tarot: I need to find my decks, classic Rider and an Arthurian one. I don't think I've touched them since I've had children, except to move. sad.

Anywho, In a spiral-like pattern, here's some May love for everyone!

Aeress, sending good vibes your way! What a scary story! My parents used to put Accent (MSG) on everything when I was a kid... they know better now.


Well... celebrations are over... and AF isn't home yet. I was mistreated by friends, wanted to unwind alone by surfing the net when we got home, DH got upset by my choice, voices got louder and being PMSing I retreated in the bedroom to cry...


Well, think I'm going to go to bed since the neighbor seem to have stop playing with fireworks.

Good night!

My 6 yr old is asking me to get some Ben 10 books from the library for him...who is this Ben 10 and do I want to go there?

I know Roo likes this character, DoK -- could you (or anyone else) please fill me in a bit?

Called 911 this morning. Smoke detector/carbon monoxide detector was going off in the basement. Couldn't tell if it was the real thing or not so I had to be safe.

Firefighters said it's a faulty detector. Phew!
Called building manager phone message service and when the bldg manager called me back, he asked me why I didn't just call him.
DUH. Because it could have been a REAL emergency for all I know! Good grief. (and because the firetruck would get here faster than the building manager who lives one town over.

Ok, must shower to get ready for spine doc appt.

Oh boy. Hold on tight, you're in for a ride! Ben 10 is a boy who discovers a watch like thing. Turns out, aliens made it. It attaches itself to Ben and he discovers that he can use it to temporarily turn into hero aliens. Ben turns into an alien when he needs to defeat bad aliens.

It's definitely an attitude filled, kick butt cartoon. Sadly, my son has picked up on the teenager badittude from that show. Plus, he's more 'violent' now than he was before he started watching Ben 10.

Although, some people would argue that my son is just acting "like a boy" now.

There's a new Ben 10 series on the Cartoon Network now. Friday nights at 8:00. The new alien Rath is great, I admit. He cracks me up.

Holy cow, 37, really? I would have said 30 tops. And you have a 16yo?? Well whatever you're doing, keep it up, mama! Looking good!

It sounds like a great time, even with the bereavement I've never heard of trying to get the ribbons off the Maypole! That can't be easy.
I don't use my tarot cards very often, either, and I still have to use the book, even after all these years but I like to have them. I have the Herbal tarot.

Aww, man That's how I unwind, too...and ds thinks that if I'm quiet, at the computer or on the phone listening to whomever I'm talking with, that that's an invitation to yak at me Boy, if I'm stressed and trying to unwind, that is the wrong time to try to yak at me.

Glad it was nothing, DOK. Better to be safe than sorry, I always say, especially when it comes to safety. Boo on your landlord for not understanding that!

Ben10-- my boy is heavily into that. I think it's stupid, but whatever. I'm sure that whatever I liked at his age was stupid to my parents, too

DS has a plastic Ben10 watch and wears it lots. He had one of the newer ones, but got this older version from a friend who didn't want it anymore, and it broke. I tried to find it on Ebay and it's going for a ton of money!! He still plays with the broken one, though, just pretending instead of whatever it's supposed to actually do.
He also has a Nintendo DS game or two of it.

I don't think it gives him any extra attitude at all, but that may vary by child. He has enough of that w/o Ben10...well, sometimes.
I am not in any way a GD parent so I nip that in the bud with total restrictions, on whatever is causing the attitude.
He does like cartoon violence, but he doesn't like "real" violence at all, and he's very compassionate with little kids, animals, and grownups, so I'm good. He hates blood. Like, in the first Spider-Man movie where the uncle gets hit by a car, and Toby McGuire finds him, and you see blood filling his mouth very briefly, my ds turns his head away. He can't watch that kind of stuff at all. He couldn't get thru Pirates of the Caribbean or Lord of the Rings. But Ben10, he's fine with.
Ben10 I think is kind of like this kid who...well, not really a superhero, but he has powers via this watch, that helps people. Sort of. I find it harmless. We haven't read any of the books. Maybe I'll check them out when I go to the library next.

M has a monster of a cold sore on his lip. He said it's very, very painful and can't even close his mouth, and it hurts for him to talk to me
Please send him healing energy for it to go away before I get there! It's only 9 days...I am glad to see my sweetie no matter what, but I haven't seen him in 2 months and would really appreciate being able to kiss him! *pout*

It's not my landlord...It's the maintenance man, actually.

What is the old Omnitrix like? They still sell them at Target and Toys R Us.

Attitude: With my son having autism, he copies bad behavior. It's not as simple as restricting, punishments, rules, etc. Been there, done that, doesn't work with ds.

All kids are different. Some will act out, some won't. My son is mimic. Always has been. And he fixates. He was fixated on princesses for years. Everyone said he needs a "boy" interest. Well, be careful what ya wish for! LOL.

Ok, gotta leave to get gas before my appt.
post #53 of 638
Valérie-I'm sorry.

DoK-How scary! I'm glad it was just faulty!

Ben10 sounds exactly like something my son would like...but he's way too violent already. I may have to not get that one.

Ok. I need some pagan supplies and etsy is pulling to me. I want an affordable cauldron and I'm thinking one of these: http://www.etsy.com/listing/45763457...belly-cauldron
http://www.etsy.com/listing/45762948...mouth-cauldron
http://www.etsy.com/listing/45762471...-moon-cauldron

I also want a goddess pendant/necklace for pregnancy/birth. Something inexpensive as my van just stopped running and we don't know how much it will be to fix the alternator.

I was going to get a malachite one as it's my favorite stone, but I read somewhere online that you shouldn't wear it until your due date due to it's strong vibrations? But then I read somewhere that the Egyptians used it to safeguard pregnancy...I'm confused!
post #55 of 638
yay! it's May!

I spent an amazing weekend at a cabin with my Witch Sisters!! We ate, we drank, we partied!

We made prayer bracelets, and by made, I mean MADE, twisting wire, beating, cutting, oh it was fun! And we made necklaces, too! I wish I had made more, and everyones was different, and beautiful! I learned how to make my own incense, it's loose, so I need to get a few things before I can burn any. But oh my it smells divine!!!

But here is the thing. Bad things happen when I leave. My son's cold got worse, and he had a fever, my daughter had nightmares, which are really scary! She had one last night, well, two, she says this morning. It's bad enough that it is making me reconsider ever going away from my family over night again. I'm going to have to figure out the best way to protect my family from negativity like that when I leave.

Oh my it's almost 11, I have LOTS to do today and need to get moving in order to get any of it done!! I'll be back though I'm sure. I take lots of breaks lol

The old Omnitrix has a part that you can "pop" down, and it pops up again, but doesn't have any aliens that are external. It's this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/BEN-10-OMNITRIX-...item27b160e81a

I'm sorry if I came off sounding like I was giving parenting advice. I wasn't at all. I was just saying what it's like in our family. ITA about different kids.

PM me your address. I have the perfect thing (or at least, *I* think it is ) and I was going to yard-sale it, but I will gift it to you. How's that for inexpensive?

Subbin'

Little League has started. Got a bit of sun yesterday, didn't use enough sunblock so a a few patches of red today.

Everyone was in bed and out before 9 last night. Was cool. Thinking it might be another early day tonight with everyone's sluggishness, but might have been the weather.

Didn't do anything for May Day, the day was too nuts. But did have girls night out with my crunchy mommy friends. The dreadlocks to "regular" hair was almost 50/50.

STILL haven't planted my garden, ugh! If I am not overbooked the weather sucks. Hoping that Saturday, I can at least get my herbs and "required" veggies into their buckets.

My cervical spine is good. Doc says now we have to look into it being a pinched nerve in the elbow. Referred me to a neurologist. Honestly, I'm hoping this is what it is because he said there's easy treatment for it.
