Happy Solstice coolshine.gif

 

We had a full but enjoyable one.  Monday DP and I got back from our trip and the family did our "no lights" longest night.  We played Monopoly by candle light and told stories.  Then yesterday we got up in the dark (still no lights) and drove up a mountain to welcome back the sun.  We saw two deer, a mountain grouse and lots a other birds.  Last night we had a Soup and Solstice party.  We had a fire pit and burned our yule log.  It was really fun ~our first Solstice party. loveeyes.gif  Now, I'm lying in bed with a cuppa pretending the cleaning faeries are busy at work in the kitchen.

 

LM- I hope you get it figured out soon.  Sorry you're not feeling well. 

 

Valerie- I need to join you in the kitchen...lots of dishes to do.  Sounds like a cozy atmosphere for you family visit though. 

 

redveg- I hope you enjoy your celebration today. smile.gif

 

SweetSunshine-What a pretty pentacle. 

 

I enjoy reading about all of your Solstice celebrations.  I hope we are all feeling the love and light of the season.

A beautiful pentacle, SweetSunshine! How sweet of your friends to do that!

 

My DH got me the Kitchen Tarot too! Yay us!

 

Hoping to get some Xmas baking in tonight with my cousin. I haven't seen her in months because our schedules don't mesh well, but she's like a sister to me, so I'm thrilled to see her.

 

Lioness, I hope you fin some answers--that sure does sound suspicious and painful.

 

More healing vibes please! My best friend had her baby, and they were supposed to be discharged today, but he started having labored breathing last night. So they must stay another 24 hours. I hope it is just adjusting to the outside world, but as my friend has a heart condition, there is the possibility of more.

Yay for the Kitchen Tarot (I lurve lurve LURVE that deck!  it's always spot on)!

 

Yay for jobs and jewelry and happy holidays!  Yay for a bright and merry new year!  Yay for us!  LOL

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

We had a good Solstice... my brother and sil were here, we watched the sun come up, we ran through the woods with jingle bells, singing carols, and throwing birdseed.  We tossed pictures (and a necklace I made) into the well as an offering to Mother Holle and the other Shining Ones, and even had a yummy dinner of roast chicken, cran orange relish, and sweet potato "fries".  Very solar festive.  :)

 

Today was tough... Laia (5yo) had her first big dental visit.  She did great, though now that the meds are wearing off she's a bit grumpy and ouchie.  It was one crown, one deep filling, and 8 smaller fillings.  Next visit they'll do the left side (these were all on the right side) which is another half dozen small fillings and one big one.  DH picked up a thing of ice cream for her (she isn't supposed to chew for a while) and she had a decent time with the various sedation meds so I'm feeling really relieved.

 

On a harder note... DH seems to have "lost" almost 200 dollars.  He had it in his wallet and now it's not there.  :(  It was a gift from family to help cover the dental work and I'm in a bit of a panic.  Plus dh is really beating himself up... almost in a scary way.  Wish us a quick find and a peaceful afternoon.

So glad everyone seems to have had a good Solstice.

Just got some unpleasant news about my so called best friend. Apparently my mother talked to her after my big convo with mom and my best friend was all upset and since then has been telling everything we talk about to my mom. MY mother posted on fb today that "now it is time to fight, not wallow in self pity. I am a good mom, and have my loving children as a reminder.Let it begin...." So apparently she's planning to make my life difficult. I'm betting she's talking to the priest, the nuns, etc and gonna attempt a Catholic "intervention" or something. Oh boy! Can't wait! So glad I have my pentacle now. Its a comfort to have the loving protection it brings.

clay: could it be in the washer? dh and the kids will sometimes leave money in their pants and i will find it later in the washer.

 

sunshine: be strong! i am so sorry you have to deal with that. seems so strange to me to have people that nosy into your business. like if their way is the right way, isn't still between you and god? and you know you do not in anyway have to get into with them. just refuse to go there and be in that house. ((hug))

 

had a minor freak out today with all the crud i piled up in the next few days. lol what was i thinking? i have to STILL make candy, and tomorrow it is 6 quiches for IHELP and then i have to make a pie and sweet potatoes for my mom's and then we are hosting a potluck here on sunday with dh's family and i have to do cheese/meat and cracker and all the flipping drinks. and i still have to clean the house, and deal with the kids and what have you. i know it is just alittle something everyday, but it just feels like so much. lol eeek!

I have to go there for the holiday, for my little sisters. So I have to find a way to control myself and not engage them or let them mess with my head or my heart. I am glad that there are people who know me and who I am and accept the whole package, no exceptions!
post #268 of 360

Clay- I hope the money is found.  And ouch on all that dental work.  I can't remember...Does she not have enamel on her teeth?

post #269 of 360

Clay - my DH has done this... ugh - I would check any spot (the side cubbies in cars, the middle part between seats, under the seat, in the couch, under the couch, various coats, jackets, pants etc.)  If that doesn't turn it up - can you put out a wish or request for it to return to you ASAP?  I've done that before with "lost" items and they seem to turn up then.  argh, Im heartsick with you in a BTDT kinda of way. :(  Good to hear about L and her trip to the dentist... and mmmm mmmm ice cream yummy.gif

 

Sunshine - That sounds like a declaration of war! Good grief! Is there a way for you to talk to your mom before the holidays and get her to set aside this onslaught until after the holidays have passed for you & her to have a discussion.  P.S. when did it start that when an adult child changes religious beliefs meant one is a "bad mom?"   P.P.S - super pretty pentacle, I hope that it can provide you the comfort and protection you may need during this holiday season.

 

Awww the kitchen tarot... hmm DH just called and asked if there was anything else I wanted for the holiday.... *hello sign from the heavens*  Can anyone recommend a set of oracle cards?  I'm about to go back and search the "camp threads" for inspiration as I thought we talked about daily rituals there and those came up.

Mof3 - I am looking at your list and I am about to do all of these:  jaw.giffaint.gifsurrender.gif

post #270 of 360
In my mom's "faith" which is pretty much an extremist, "traditional catholic" cult, if your child "leaves the faith", it means that they will lose their soul, unless they come back to the church. In her eyes, she has clearly raised me wrong, if I am not strong enough in my catholicism to stay catholic. We were taught very young that if you are not catholic you are going to hell and I even used to go around to any non-catholic I met and tell them as much. Its so twisted, but thats where she's coming from. There IS NO option on religion. Period! I know she's talking to people and have a bad feeling about what she's gonna try to pull. I'm pretty much gonna walk in Friday and tell her right out, we're not discussing it over the holiday and if she tries to start with me, I will leave. Its her choice, be cool or I won't be around. I'm not coming to argue or ruin Christmas. Going to try to remain internally in my safe circle of love and light and protection!
post #271 of 360

not a snowball's chance in tucson i can catch up, but i hope all are well and enjoying the season!

 

we got to play in the snow yesterday, so it was a great success. :-) also saw and felt the eclipse. i will have to come back and read what you all felt about it! i felt stunningly cleansed. 

 

i'm trying not to freak out about all the stuff that's not getting done/done the way i'd like, and be happy that my curtains are almost all freshly laundered. ahhh. nothing like clean curtains. :-)

 

solstice lurve & blessings!

Glad she did well hun, hope it's a relatively easy recovery... ice cream will help that ;) hehe  I 'lost' 50bucks once like that... have no idea how, but it was back in a time when that was our grocery budget.  I REALLY hope it turns up!

Um wow.. your mother is a presumptuous old biddy if she would really do this at a family holiday gathering? 

Personally *I* wouldn't do it.  It puts you in HER space where she will feel justified acting however she wants.  No way would I go to HER house, knowing she planned to basically attack... I would tell the family I DO want to see that sorry, while she is being hostile and harboring delusions that your religion is any business of hers... you'll be staying home and enjoying the day instead of fending off attacks!   I hope you manage to shut her down.  And that she somehow finds the enlightenment to mind her own business!

Personally I do not mind a good fight... to bad it looks like you are walking into an ambush. I would be prepared, both mentally and spiritually/ magically as well as physically -- if you have to leave for your safety (of any type... I find someone "attacking" me with an "intervention" a threat against my safety) then know while you may not have your blood family's support you have your spiritual sisters, spiritual brothers and Divine Mother and Father's support. :) Your choices are yours, and have very little to do with your mom, or any one, but YOU. I wonder if she would feel the same if you stayed within the "cloth" and just became Methodist or even Jewish, sigh. It is good you have something to make you feel safe :) but remember it holds no power except what you give it, even without it you are strong. To me it looks like she is going to ruin the holiday all by herself, with no help from you ;) Let her be the fool, then others will only be able to see you as you are and her as a fool.
 

post #274 of 360

thinking of all you lovely ladies and hope everybody's Solstice was wonderful.

I must say I am especially thinking of you sunshine, as religious freedom is pretty much my strongest conviction.

Know that all of us will be there in spirit by your side, surrounding you with love, light, and protection.grouphug.gif

 

Yule eve we did gifts so DH could be there, and I thought I'd try to bake cookies with DS and such on Yule...no such luck.

We're in crisis mode, with DS trying to retain his poop, getting beyond hysterical when he feels the urge/poops.  

He has a freak accident and pooped in his underpants while out with DH and the IL's-he's never pooped outside of home, and then only in diapers, and it obviously has caused huge anxiety for him..When he (obviously) needs to poop, he needs to stop whatever he's doing-be it playing or eating, and starts crying. Yesterday this went on for hours.  It did not seem to be painful, except for today,when he finally went he was pretty much screaming and there was blood in it.  He's not constipated and has actually gone every day, normal consistency. I think just since the accident he is afraid and ashamed. Of course we are very nonchalant about it and tell him it happens, and cheer him on when he finally poops...I've talked with the ped's office but am afraid this could spiral out of control fast...I won't go long without getting him into the office to see whichever doc is available, though I am pretty much certain it's psychological.

We're trying to remove all stress about potty, praising any potty efforts, doing scheduled potty visits where we just read or sing while he sits on the potty, we're going to pick up "Everybody Poops" asap, comforting him as best I can...got any "try this" or "don't do this" for me?

It absolutely kills me to see him SO upset and thinking he's doing something wrong.greensad.gif

post #275 of 360

NMM: I wish i had some advice, but my 3 year old has still no interest what so ever in the toilet. he is perfectly happy to never use the toilet. when i do try and put him on it he is so upset. i have no idea what he thinks is going to happen. anyway good luck. maybe a break for a bit from the toileting might help/ or would that maybe cause him to back peddle?

post #276 of 360

NMM- Oh that must be so hard on ds. Keeping things low key and letting him know we all have accidents, will help but sometimes it takes awhile. I had a little guy that went to my center who wouldn't poop on the potty. His Dad finally resorted to giving him a book and a glass of water and telling him that he needed to poop on the potty before he could get up. I know this approach isn't the gentlest, but the Dad said he was just kept calm, told ds that pooping happens to everyone and he would feel better when he went. I guess this went on all day but he did eventually go. He would just take ds back to the bathroom every few minutes. I guess ds finally gave in. For some kids, this would just make them more unwilling to try, but with this kid, it just reinforced the idea that he needed to do his work. I guess he came out and said, "ok, I pooped on the potty. I'm done." From then on, he had no problems.

 

Sunshine- keeping you in my thoughts. I would charge a special stone or item to keep with you and rub to give you strength and protection.

 

Clay- Oh no, hope he found it. Sometimes when I can't find something, I just need to remove myself from the situation, calm and center and then relook. Does he have several sections to his wallet. Sometimes dh folds bills into quarters and sticks then in between his cards for safe keeping. Could he have done that?

post #277 of 360

NMM- not to get to graphic but was the blood red in the stool?  If so that could mean he has a hemorrhoid or possibly a fissure which when he poops causes a lot of pain - and the bleeding. I've struggled with those post-partum and yowza! There were days I would just pray I would not have to poop, cus it hurt so bad!  I lived with a spray from earthmama angel baby (?) and it had witch hazel, cucumber in it which I know felt very soothing and cooling to my sore bottom parts.

 

 

As for not going on the potty - we ended up doing pants-free days at our house and then dragging the little potty with us to every room just in case.  It took 6 hours, the first day, and then a dedicated weekend and it seems to have worked.

This is something we have, and actually still are to a certain degree, dealt with.  Quinn is 4.5yrs old, and had no problem learning to wee on the toilet... but poop he just refused.  We continued letting him use a pull up (he only really went at home so I could live with that till he was ready)  then he started refusing to go in the pull up either.  It was somewhat the same, he had a big poop in his pullup and hid in his room one day and cried like he was going to get in trouble.. we have no idea WHY he thought that.  He not too long ago got to NINE days without more than a tiny squdge in his undies... at day 5 we started with movicol, figuring it would make the problem worse if he got seriously constipated & it hurt.  That didn't work, glycerin suppository didn't do a great deal either... we had to give him mirilax.. TWICE to actually get him to let go.  And at that point it was more like force him to let go :(  But he was heading for very unpleasant territory if he did not.  He is still holding it in as much s he can, but our doc recommended just what you're doing, 5minutes on the toilet a few times a day with no pressure.  She even suggested a reward to start with (because he would scream bloody murder if we put him on the toilet and he had to poop but didn't want to!) .. so he sat on the toilet for 5mins and scored an m&m, even if he didn't go.  That cut down on a lot of the anxiety after the first few trips.  He's going every 4days now, give or take.. and when he hits 2 days without a poo he gets 'special' chocolate milk (with movicol, which basically pulls fluid into the intestines to keep the poo from getting dry & hard.. no stimulant effect) to make sure it doesn't go from with holding to true constipation.  When he does go, it's fairly huge for such a little guy but thankfully he doesn't seem uncomfortable... now we're just working on getting him to go more often.  It's been VERY frustrating (on both sides I'm sure!) 

 

I'd say if he had blood in his stool, you might want to try a mild stool softener because it might be hurting to go when he finally does?  Which obviously reinforces the situation and causes more drama.  Quinns is definitely a psychological issue as well,  he *can* poop when he's basically got no choice (yep, I've sat him there with a toy, a book and a drink and said do not get up until you do a poo ... this was after about the 4th pair of squidy undies lol)  but he really doesn't WANT to.   I really do feel for you mama.. we have had a long and worrysome road with Quinn over this so I know how you feel.

 

In other news... Derrick & I both went & had our hair done today :P  He got a cut and his stripe bleached & dyed blue .. I got a serious cut and semi colour :D  I now have a much shorter do, the back is short and it angles down longer in the front, so I can still tuck it behind my ears.  DH was stunned ;)   The girl that does my hair was all excited to get to do something new and adventurous for me lol   I'll try to get a pic online tomorrow sometime to share.  It's going to be SO much nicer to live through summer without long hair ... it was at my shoulder blades before and I NEVER wore it down because of the hot factor! 

 

Hope everyone had a lovely solstice!  Ours was fairly quiet, but we did have some sun!  ALways nice to have a bit of real DAY on the longest day of the year thumb.gif

post #279 of 360

Still looking... this is sort of a textbook example of why we don't "do" cash.  DH has ADD and while he has meds and schedules that help, it's just really hard for him to stay on top of random things (by random I mean "things that are unique/not part of him regular routine").  It's nothing he can change, and he feels  horrible about it (which makes me extra sad because it really isn't a character flaw... it's a brain chemistry imbalance and not under his control).  But it does make life a little more challenging.  He was telling me I should have married someone else because he can't take care of me... I was crying and desperately trying to think of ways to boost his confidence.

 

teeth- yeah, dd1 inherited crummy teeth from both sides.  Her enamle is very thin, her teeth "wear down" (none of her teeth have points on them anymore, even her canine teeth are "flat"), and apparently her teeth are also more or less hollow... the tooth they crowned looked more or less fine frmo the outside, but when it broke there really wasn't anything "in" the tooth... just black ick.  Yesterday was the big visit, but we have one more visit to go with another 1500 dollar price tag.  But we may get some back from DH's insurance.

 

And speaking of... I GOT A JOB!  I go today to fill out the paperwork and sign the tax forms and I might even start this weekend.  It's work-from-home doing data sorting for a friend.  He was given the green light to hire some temps to help with the "mind numbing" bits of the job and he asked me and another friend of ours who is a single mom to a 7yo.  It's more or less the perfect job (flexible hours, all from home, decent pay) but I'm a bit scared of the reality.  I'm just not sure where I can fit it into the day... to be cost effective to the company I need to process something like 150 files per hour, three to four hours a day.  Until I see what is involved I wont panic, but the thought of finding three-four hours a day when the kiddos wont be all over me is daunting.  The 7pm-10pm or 7-11pm chunk seem to be the only solid options but I've never been a night owl and this might be the end of me!  So we'll see.  Serenity now!

 

SweetSunshine- good luck!  Check out the thread I started about "keeping the peace at mixed faith family getherings"... it's here in the Spirituality forum.  It mostly has the bean dip/potato salad approach but some posts are a bit more confrontational or involve advanced planning so it may help!  I agree that this might be a good time to practice responses to common questions, to perhaps contact a Catholic priest yourself and ask how he'd suggest you handle a gathering (my mom is similar to yours, and I've found that many priests are a good deal more laid back and over the years I've had a few priests talk with my mom for me and/or give me suggestions for addressing this sort of situation), work a few mirror spells or freezer bindings and memorize the "I'm rubber you're glue" mantra (I lurv spells that make me giggle a bit), maybe charge a little spray bottle of rescue remedy (or an herbal tea mix) so that you can spray yourself off between encounters or use it to help you calm/center during the gathering.  If you can find it, there's a book called Christians and Pagans.  It's fairly scholarly but it might make a nice gift for your mom.  It's written by a pagan academic I know, and like I said it's a bit textbook-ish, but the goal of the book was to de-mystify pagans to christians and vice versa.

Oh no, about the money! Any luck yet? I hate when I do that. And it's always just me redface.gif I have nobody else I can blame. 

 

How do you pronounce "Holle"? Is it like "holly"?

Oh no, sunshine. I'm so sorry. I guess I've been really lucky-- my mom just thinks I'm insane (well, no more than the different drummer I've always marched to; she just rolls her eyes and wonders what "different" thing I can come up with next, to march against the mainstream) but she doesn't try to intervene.

You better! I'm dying of curiosity now! Can't wait to see! Will you post on FB too?

 


So...here I am at my mom's...and I can't access my Charter email online. I called the support people and I need my bill and some numbers on there. They can change my password, but they have to view my password to change it, and they can't view it without those damn numbers from the bill. So I yelled at the guy and said I know it's not your fault but do you think I carry my bill around on vacation with me and someone is going to get an earful when I get  home. No email for me for a week! Unless I can access wi-fi somewhere and it'll still let me get my webmail. Ugh. 

 

On another note...it turns out that M has to work all next week. While I'm there. Every day. We forgot that he had a different job last year which closed down the week between Christmas and New Year's mecry.gifI said Honey, we'll figure it out. You've worked before, 2 extra hours every day for a week, to make up for a day lost. Maybe you can take ONE day off and do that. It'll work out somehow. But dang.
