The emergency IEP meeting this morning did not go well. I pretty much knew the school wasn't going to be open to doing what's best for my son. Even with my hired Educational Advocate and Neuro Psych saying that ds absolutely needs a One to One Aide, the school wouldn't budge.

So, we are going to meet again in 3 weeks.

Then, 3 weeks after that, the Neuro Psych is going to observe ds at school.
This whole process is going to take such a long time, I'm afraid of what could happen in the meantime.
DOK Is the school not budging because of $$$? I'm sorry you & Roo are having to go through this! Can the timetables be moved/adjust if things go.. not well? I'm keeping both of you in my thoughts!

Since I'm having the baby in the hospital, my piercer is already ordering my jewelry retainers for me I love that woman! And I ordered the funniest onesie ever. It says: My parents love me like zombies love brains. How awesome is that!?!

Anyway, happy September everyone! Lets hope things start to finally cool off again!
Love the costume idea! I wish I could rally DH into a family costume idea, but I think that would result in us being the Super Mario characters...

And such a quirky onesie!!! mmmmm brainsmmm

Go to the bottom and click on "Are You Paying Attention?" This cool PDF blank list thingy comes up that is really deceptively simple. We all know we can do this w/o the list, but sometimes visual reminders help. Ones that someone else came up with.

Me lurve StumbleUpon

It is so hard to type with one finger bandaged up!
Cool, Maia, thanks for that. And ouch to the finger!

DH would prefer raising them Jewish, but I refuse to budge on the issue of religious freedom. Until that day comes, DS loves observing Shabat with fresh-baked Challa, and daily prayers with Mommy(his favorite is holding the incense with me and blessing his bedroom )

I'm preggo with #2, due Nov 7, but I am secretly hoping she's here by the New Year!

Just wondering: how do you ladies feel about Trick-or-treating?
I feel at heart "Halloween" is pretty much a maltreatment of a most sacred day-but Trick-or-Treating is all about the kids, and I can't wait to dress DS up for his first trick-or-treat. But of course, we will celebrate Samhaim with lots of food and fun!! I just hope we can avoid one of our In-Laws usuall tasteless cards with a snaggle-toothed witch...

Anyway, so glad to have found you all!!
Welcome, congrats on the next baby!, and I love all the secular Halloween stuff. I liked it as a fundementalist christian kid and I love it as a relaxed eclectic pagan. :-) I choose to not get bent out of shape about the stuff that bothers me and just enjoy the stuff that I enjoy. <3

It's like, there's social holidays (Halloween) and religious/spiritual holidays (Samhain). Plus, I'm not persnickity about celebrating on the exact day, so it's no biggie for me to have our Samhain celebration on another day. That way, DS can concentrate on the excitement of Halloween and T'orT without the seriousness of Samhain.
Make sense?
I should post "The Halloween Witch" again...I can't believe it's getting to be that time already.
This. Yes.

we do some similar studf here, there is "Hogwarts" that gets set up nearby which gets bigger and better each year. Complete with Potions Class, the Sorting Hat, and a Hogsmeade! we also ToT and eat chili at my parents. Dressing up is fun fun fun, and we sometimes throw a party here at home as well. My dh is particularly good at manning the fog machine.

Basically, if it could be the tacky halloween "stuff" every day, I'd be happy.

Cari- Sorry about daim losing his job, and big fat yay on another prospect so soon!

Mo3- good luck/good news re:your dh trying to make some changes. Manifesting growth!

Maia- you visiting M yet?

AND- it's only 74 degrees here today and RAINING! Yippee! My seasonal spiritual side is gonna bust out!

This town is notorious for fighting giving a personal aide. There's money in the budget but they try to placate the parents in the hopes the parent(s) will just give up. This time, we are not backing down. We will play their game for 6 weeks. Then, if ds is showing signs of stress and non learning, our Educational Advocate will request mediation. If that doesn't work, we need to get a lawyer and take the school to court.

If something serious happens in the meantime, then that would push things in my favor. However, I hope and pray nothing serious happens.

I've been thinking about this a lot. Specifically, to me, I think dragons mean passion - not particular sexual passion, but general passion-for-life, including passion that is protective of others. I wrote a poem about a "dragon feeling" when I was a teen that was about inner passion and power and learning to manage those feelings without hurting others. My grandma and my dragon friend are/were both passionate people. I got a postcard from my friend today, coincidentally! (or maybe not!) Haven't heard from her in many months. So taking the dragon may also mean renewing this friendship? There is also a Chinese New Year fable about Dragon and Rooster that I enjoy reading to the kids every year, so that feeds into the symbolism for me.

I think I'm going to take up my own idea, root out some old blank index cards or cardstock scraps and start making my own deck of personal symbols like this. I don't know if it will ever evolve into a personal tarot deck, but I think it could be useful having images of significance to me all in one place, to shuffle through and meditate on.

I want to know more about the white bowl or whatever the second object was I chose in my dream. I think I'll try to meditate before bed and see if I can manage to request another dream about it from my subconscious, for clarification.

I am wordy but definitely *not* arty, so the idea kind of intimidates me.I love browsing decks online though. I can see how designing a Tarot deck is often a fulfiling and significant project for an artist who works in fantasy images.

It'd be an amazing way to learn the Tarot or to deepen one's knowledge of it - you'd really have to connect with every single image/archetype to be able to produce your own version of it. It'd take a while, though. There are, what 80 cards in the Ryder Waite deck?

Oh, that is *so* unfair! Joining you in praying for a safe and happy-as-possible school experience for Roo while you fight - successfully! - for what he needs.

Yay Cari! You are a force of nature, you know that? That is the *fastest* job loss/new job turnaround I've ever heard of!

ETA about the zombie onsie. I love zombie lit/humor and my family can't stand it. I'd love to make all of my kids wear that shirt, but I don't think they'd go for it.

so happy september is here! even if it brought a heat wave with it :/

back to read posts :P
post #48 of 630
DoK- I'm so sorry! I hope things go smoothly for Roo and that this ends quickly and in your favor.

Cari- huzzah!

car- Yup. The brakes went out on dh today. We've had it home a week or two now and whammo. I'm glad it was dh though because he handled it much better than I would have! And get this... while the car was in the shop (getting the THIRD transmission) one of the tires went flat. It was fine when we brough it in, but when we went back 2 weeks later to get it, it was popped. Well, we told them they had to fix it since it had happened while they had the car and they did. Well, today they called to remind us that we hadn't paid for the tire yet! OMG. I need a spell here I think. These guys need a readjustment big time.

weather- in the 90s with deadly humidity. I hate hate hate weather like this! It's disgusting and sticky and icky. It's supposed to change soon though so here's hoping it does.

I was going to say something like this. When I was little, my parents had to fight our town just for giftedness testing, which the town said I needed, but wouldn't pay for. I was also under special needs at the time (Chapter 766, I think?). Anyway, it sounds like you have a plan. I hope that it doesn't come to a fight...it's absurd what you have to do to get what kids need.

Yikes, glad he's safe! Re: tire... how the heck did it go flat? can you have it examined for a puncture or something? Because unfortunately if it had a slow leak or something.. I doubt they'll back down :S I'd still argue the heck out of it though, especially if they weren't old tires!

He's not the kind of guy to waste time When he called to tell me that he thought they were going to fire him, I hopped on the job search site and already had alist of courier type jobs for him to browse. It's also a case of, while we would be eligible for our version of unemployment, plus a parenting payment for me (we'd have still had about 1500 every 2 weeks from the govt all up if he couldn't find work straight away) .. it is not something we wanted to have to do! Plus DH also reallly wants to rub it in their faces that it took him less than a day to get a job elsewhere, and hopefully he even ends up a little ahead $$. He's really .. angry? upset? disillusioned? that his awesome customer service work wasn't worth a thing to the company.

DOK, sorry Roo's school is being so damn useless! I hate that schools job is to act in the best interest of children, and they just don't want to do so

I'm Loving our Springtime weather... it's VERY warm today here (28c, 82F) and just beautiful outside I actually enjoyed hanging out the laundry My veggie garden is going crazy! I think I'll wander out with the kids and inspect for more ripe strawberries

I know there were other posts I wanted to reply to but I'm a tad brain dead today! Thanks for all the good thoughts & vibes for Daims job situation... he's off delivering paperwork to the new employer now!
post #51 of 630
so if i am feeling a bit better tomorrow we will be meeting up with a new homeschool group tomorrow. it will be nice to get out, even when it is suppose to be 102! lol

dh scheduled a massage for me, but my hose is so runny i told him to reschedule. i am not sure if the supply buckets for your nose. lol

dh and dd took a brisk walk this evening and are planning on do it every evening, until they feel fit enough to run (dh thinks about 2 weeks), and then they are thinking about training for a marathon... dh wants to do the whole thing, but dd was thinking maybe a 1/2. all i can say is WOOT! now just to keep them doing it for 28 days, hopefully then it will become a habit and they will really be into it.

i started re-reading "Connection Parenting" it is such a great book.

ok i have nothing really to say, just sorta bored now and not tired enough to sleep. lol

goodnite everyone. <3

Oh, oh! I just read a spiffy book! It's called "The Expected One" and it's a sort of thriller/adventure built around the stories of Mary Magdelene.
on the car front. Wow that's a lot of trouble for one car. Thanks for the book recommendation too

Since I am the outsider in my family, the hippie freak as they say, I get the same resistance from them when I offer advice, it's fustrating. I am glad they found a good Doctor and their little guy is doing better

the school system can and is fustrating. I hope your little guy gets the help he needs without a huge fight with them.

We have nothing in our town And I don't get any kids coming for candy. My kids are past dressing up so we have a few of their friends over, decorate the place, put out the munchies, watch movies and I am the only one dressed up.

Happy Friday Morning Mamas

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I am running around getting things for my kids that they need for school, stopping by the book store for me, and the feed store for, well feed

Enjoy everyone
post #54 of 630
Good morning all!

I am sitting here budgeting and paying some bills. I really hoped to rest today so I could finally start getting better. Dd is almost better, ds is perfectly fine and dh is good as well. But no one here is letting mom get better because "mommy's don't get sick!"

I'm going to be putting my foot down I'm sure today as I deserve to rest. We have Netflix here and last night dh and I watched The Business of Being Born. It was amazing. We learned so much and will watch it with Dp as well. He'll be back in two weeks!

They are calling themselves the "advocates" since they will be my voice in L & D. We will get what we want and if I can find a doula to aid us (though I don't know if they'll let her in if I have my three people) I know I will get the results I want.

So busy day today with me getting stuff done early and then finally coming home and resting this cold. I *might* stop at the medical aid unit to see if they suggest anything else but if not, I think resting, tea, honey, lemon, garlic, vinegar and chicken soup are going to be my best friends.

Would your friends dress up? Mine all do (mostly) and we have just as much fun as the kids. Last year I was a witch (this is my fallback. hm.) complete with stripey thigh highs, red heels and a conical hat. Dh was totally 70's pimp. My best friend was all sparkly fairy with wings, sil was a bumblebee, etc etc. Dh's best friend cam as a cloaked wizard, which was easy as he has this LOOOONG beard and a snake. :-) It's loads of fun.

Clay- Is it time to let this car go? begeezus, that's a lot of car trouble

Cari- lol. I like Daim's attack of the problem. WTG!

If the weather stays as cool as it is right now I might actually be able to clean my van out. Oy vey, it's been too long. I just couldn't physically think of it with 105 degrees.

There is this Kitchen tarot deck I want from Barnes and Noble, who wants to buy it for me??? lol

Oh, my, Clay I'm sorry!
I lurve my Subaru, though-- I'm on my 2nd one. The reason I even have a 2nd one is that I traded in the 1st one at 80K miles. I would have done that with this one, too, but I didn't find another one in my price range unless it was a standard, and I'm way done with driving a clutch. So now I'm up to 111K miles, but I love this car.
I'm sorry you're having trouble with yours! Did you get the tire thing resolved?

I have never heard that before! I heard that you should pick the one that "calls" you. I have the Herbal tarot. I have had it for like 20 years. I went into the store expecting to get this other one, and for some reason I kept being drawn to the Herbal, so I bought it. I have never regretted it!

Yes, all of those, plus have you ever had Garlic Lemonade? Fix you right up, I swear. The recipe is from Aviva Jill Romm, and let's see if I can remember it correctly:
You take a couple garlic cloves, mince them up, and put them in a quart jar. Boil some water, put over the garlic, and let sit for half an hour. Strain them out. Then add squeezed lemons (or I use ReaLemon juice) and honey to taste. It only tastes good if you're sick Drink warm.
I often do a bunch of this at once, so I don't have to expend the energy when I'm sick. I keep it in the fridge in Mason jars.

Ye Gods, mamas, I am over the moon happy

Good Morning Ladies!!! Just popping in and grabbing my first cuppa this morning...
post #58 of 630
The Expected One (and sequals) is by Kathleen McGowan. It's "older" so should be in libraries or available through interlibrary loan.

The car- we had planned on selling it after the transmission was fixed. We actually had planned on cleaning it/polishing it/craigslisting it this weekend but obviously we have to now fix the brakes before offering it. We have a car loan on it so need to have it sell for the price of the loan, and brakes will be essential for that. Our last experience with a Subaru (mid90s through early 00s) was mixed... it also had brake/transmission problems, but nothing like this! We bought this car because we felt like subarus were super reliable and GRRRRRR!

Heading out but planning on having today be hard... dd1 wants to build a robot and, well, she is ADAMANT about it. Which is fine, we've been "building robots" for months now out of paper and blocks and all sorts of stuff. But she wants a "real" robot that worsk and she is just not hearing that this will take time/effort...she thinks she can just get the parts and put them together in an hour or so. She had a totaly fit last night because I tried to explain that it takes time to make this stuff... and that you have to MAKE it. Today may not go well.

Retainers are plastic versions of the jewelry. Only one piercing won't get one because it's permanent.

I have my septum, labret, 4 gauge in my tongue, and I have a dermal anchor next to my eye.

My below the belt piercing just has to come out until after delivery I guess.

Me too Cheers.

Maia-Have a great time! Not that I have to tell you that. We might be trying out that Garlic Lemonade around here real soon.

Millie Ivey-Hope the heat lets up for you today, and you get a clean van. Yah, no way I'd be cleaning out a vehicle in that heat. I want to come for a visit to the Hogwarts party! How fun. I wish we had that. I live in such a cool community, and I'm always surprised we don't have a better event. We have lots of events, but they're all the same: lots of candy, games where they get tons of disposable plastic crap (or more candy). I'd love to have something where there was focus on something fun apart from the HFCS and dye, oh, I mean candy.

unschoolin-Mamas have to take care of themselves too. Demand the rest today. Hope you feel better. I loved the movie BoBB. They had an early screening in my area with a panel of birthing professionals afterward. It was a great discussion.

redveg-Hope you find something yummy at the bookstore. lol I'm the hippie freak in my family too. Funny thing is, in my town the real hippies would be so insulted to hear me be called a hippie.

Mo3-Sorry you're missing your massage mama. I hope it's rescheduled. That's so great your DH and DD are exercising together. Very cool.

Cari- I'm so glad for the fast job turn around. You and Daim sound like cool peeps. Wish we were closer I'd invite y'all over for sushi. Actually, I'd love this group to be able to get together. Such an interesting, great group of mamas.

witchy-Hope you're feeling better and DH hears back soon about the job.

Clay-Hoping your car troubles are far behind you. Gods know you've had way more than your fair share. I wanted to tell you that you inspired me to start a play group for DS and his friends. He had pre-school 3 days a week for 3 hours at a time. His social need is so strong, but we can't afford any more PS. I'm going to host a playgroup for his class once a week. I'm so excited by the idea. This week with the 2 of us on our own while DD was in school had proved I can NOT entertain the little guy...I'm just too boring. Has your group started yet?

Aubergine-Yes. The school is amazing, and I feel so grateful we get to have our kiddos go there at no cost to us. We do contribute school & art supplies, volunteer time in the class and help fund raise, but it's SO worth it- I'm happy to do it, in fact. I love reading about your dreams and your thoughts on them. It's so interesting to me. I'm thinking of starting a dream journal-inspired by your posts. Cool tarot idea as well.

Dok-I hope you and the advocate are able to get your ds everything he deserves. That's so frustrating that they resist. You sound so on top of it though. How is he liking school so far?

LM-Halloween sounds fun around your parts too.

Well mamas, my DD woke up with a horrible barking, can't catch her breath cough. Off we go to the doc this morning to check if she has pertussis. Boo. Right at the beginning of school too. It's really been going around our area-our whole state actually. 2 weeks ago, DP and I discussed the whole family getting vaxed (our kids are unvaxed). Apparently, I should have jumped on that intuition; although, I doubt that would have been enough time to really do anything about it. Poor kids. They are so excited about school and now they might have to miss a lot. I'm holding onto a speck of hope right now that it's just some other virus that won't have them out long. We shall see.

Well I'm off to get us ready for the doc. Have a great day mamas.
