Lots of hug.gif and goodvibes.gif for everyone!

 

Christmas was great. Good time for everyone involved. I'm happy.

 

Taking it easy today. More parties to come this week. Not much online time.

 

Love and Light! heartbeat.gif

post #302 of 360

No time for lengthy replies to everybody right now, but just wanted to check in and let y'all know I AM ON THE TRAIN!!! joy.gif Somehow, I made it, against ALL odds. M and I lost today to be together, but we have tomorrow, and what's left of tonight (it's 5:40pm) which isn't much, but at least I'm here, and I'm safe. Val, glad your Christmas went alright. DOK, hope you're hanging in there. It doesn't look as bad out as M was making it out to be, but he has yet to pick me up and he's got two bald tires on his front wheel drive and it's all uphill to his house from the train station...sigh. I made it this far. I have faith. Cari, how's your finger? Sunshine-- yay. For now, huh? Whoever I missed...catch up with y'all later. I'm just so relieved I'm here.

Maia- I expect that by now you're seeing the weather get bad.  I know that you are west of me so it may not be as bad there.

Hoping you and M stay safe and warm.

Oh no.  I am glad your ok now and didn't get stiches.  Hope you heal quickly.   Love the hair.  I am thinking about going to a shorter style but am so nervous to just do it.  Right now my hair is  down to the middle of my back, but I would love  a sassy cut like yours.  I just need to be as brave as you.  Looks great!

 

Thanks hun,  I have to unwrap, clean and take off the yucky steri strips and replace them today.. NOT looking forward to it!  Ty for the compliments on my new do mamas!  Mine was well past my shoulders too inge, and it had to go, I was just not enjoying it anymore!   I'm funny with haircuts... I find a stylist I am comfortable with and once I trust them (after a few cuts)  I let them in on a secret.. it's hair, it grows back ;)  I will not get irate  if she suggests and I decide to try, something adventurous and it isn't perfect!

Wish I could do bangs.....I have this very wierd, small section of hair right at the front and middle of my forehead-it's like the follicles are oriented straight up instead of however the others are, so unless my hair is long enough to weigh it down, the hair there goes up in a wave-like bump.irked.gif So if I cut bangs, without serious intervention from a hot-iron(which I cannot get the hang of) it sticks up in a bad way.

 

 

tentative success with DS! Got Everyone Poops, he loves it. Lots of encouragement, potty trips, rewards, and apple juice-today he had a seemingly pain-and-anxiety free poop!!!biggrinbounce.gif OH, keeping the fingers crossed...

 

Did I ask if any of you ladies have/have had a copper IUD? Got mine put in like a couple weeks ago(ish??) and still having cramps on and off, got pretty bad today. Just wondering if that's normal for some women? Of course nobody's in at the OB, and it's not enough to warrant me having her paged.

 

love and light to all

Ty for the grats :D  I have to do fringe/bangs.. I hate my forehead lol.. I have frown lines across it so I prefer to camoflauge them hehee.  Glad your little man seems to be taking well to your anxiety free poop campaign!  thumb.gif  No IUD for me so I have no idea.  I know cramps are pretty normal for a few days, but not sure about past that.

But the part that bothered me is I KNOW she's been feeding info to my mother behind my back and she had the nerve to talk to me like I'm not mad at her. Its all ridiculous and I know there's more to come. Now that the holiday is over, I don't know what my mother has in mind. She's made a big deal about "when the news comes out" on fb... I don't know. I'm glad to be home and away from my family. I don't know what's in store, but its likely to be ugly and I'd like to stay out of range. I can totally see her trying to bring back the burning times and thats not a warm fuzzy thought!


Really, is your mom just nuts?  And your friend.. wow.. I would be hard pressed to tell her that it NOT how a friend behaves!  :(  I think I'd dump mom from my fb honestly,  she is abusing the privelege of being there by attempting to intimidate you and posting things like that.

I should be using this slow week between Christmas doing homework, is what I should be doing.  And housework.

 

I made Nigella Lawson's gluten free Nutella cake for dessert yesterday and I have a third of it left.  To. Die. For.  Sublime. Will be making that recipe again!  I need to find out how much a case of Nutella costs, because as I was eating it, I made a resolution (probably divinely inspired)  to donate a case to the food bank in 2011 -- morale food.  

 

Sorry you had that bizarre cut, Cari - at least you get out of doing the dishes for a while, I bet....when do you start your new job - has that been settled?

  

 

What are your plans for New Years' eve?  We will go to our town's festivities, some outdoor/indoor activities for the kids, fireworks.It can be very cold -- they have bonfires and a s'mores making station and usually they have to thaw the marshmallows out by the fire in order to even get them soft enough to force them onto the roasting sticks.  But there is an ice slide for the children..... New Years is *our* holiday, not a holiday of family obligation, like Christmas. Remember last year's glorious full moon on New Years? This year's New Years will be a couple days away from the new moon on Jan 3rd.  It will be a dark night, hopefully starlit....

 

 

Glad you're coping with your mom's visit well!  If you made it thru the big day you should be alright :D  I really hope your dh's job is a winner hun... that's stress nobody needs!   ANYTHING Nigella makes is NOM.. we love her!!!!!!!!  DH hs alrady taken on dish duty, and supplied me with a plastic freezer bag with a rubber band so I can shower without getting it wet lol.. I can't imagine how much that would STING!!!!  I have my orientation for the new job on 12 January :D  waiting for the HR lady to send me all the details, hopefully this week!    I'm excited .. the job will be good of course, but the  big excitement for me is the financial freedom it will bring us.  We'll be able to save, and clear out some debts to the parents etc.  Looking forward to contributing to that.

 

New years... have NO idea! lol  It is supposed to rain until friday here, otherwise we might go to the big do the town puts on... musical entertainment and such, yummy food stalls, and 2 sets of fireworks!  One for the youngers at 8pm ish.. and the other at midnight. But if the weather is still like this we will likely give it a miss.

Glad you're safely there hun!  (at least i'm sure you are by now?!?)  Enjoy your visit with M! 

 

Finger is ok, will see what it looks like later unfortunately.  Must go out & pick up stuff for dinner, we have decided we need breakfast for dinner tonight!  so I will hit the chemist & get bandage supplies as well. I'm sure its stopped bleeding in there lol but the bandage is for my mental health.. I cannot handle SEEING it, because it looks pretty awful.  Towels are also on sale at Target, and I"m sick of having just barely enough of the bloomin things!  So i"m stopping in there too!  Of course, it is going to storm momentarily, so I guess we'll wait till the deluge passes and it's merely constant steady drizzle to go out :P

Thanks!! Yes, I am safely here! Woohoo! And yes, we are snowed in, but I'm loving it. I can't think of anybody I'd rather be snowed in with luxlove.gif We have coffee and plenty of toilet paper and a kick-ass heater. I'm good to go lol.gif

Glad you gals are safe right now! I hope the power stays on and everyone is warm and snug!

 

Maia- TP is very important! hehe

 

Well, car problems aside, we had a fabulous Christmas, and my sister even announced that she is pregnant! Woot, I will get to be an AUNT! I can't wait to have a new baby to hold and spoil!

post #307 of 360

Trying to catch up lol...

 

Maia- that's such good news!  I know it's no fun to be snowed in/stuck en route but at least it's being stuck someplace you WANT to be instead of some airport somewhere!  Hope the week is fun and filled with snuggles!

 

DoK- hope the blizzard leads to a few relaxing days of hearth and home (with no need to go out for anything but fun).

 

SweetSunshine- I'm glad you made it through the gathering.  Hang in there!

 

Cari- love the hair, loathe the finger slice!  I grabbed a steak knife by the wrong end (it was in the sink, hidden by bubbles) and have joined you in the land of wounded fingers.

 

Weather- technically we have "flurries".  But we're now up to 10-12 inches on top of the 6-8 inches and the ice from the "freezing fog" thing that happened on christmas.  DH is out with the snow blower (the best gift ev-ah as far as I'm concerned... a relative gave it to us last year and o m g it rocks).

 

Speaking of OMG... nutella cake?  Seriously??  I swoon!  lol

 

I'm missing lots of people... my brother and sil go back to AK tomorrow so I'll have more time online, till then, I love you all... hope the season is merry and bright and full of smile!  Be well!

post #308 of 360

Maia- When do you fly home?  Hope you enjoy your cozy time.

 

Aeress- I'm sending you positive energy for car stuff!

 

Clay- Ooh, I'd love a snowblower.  Not that I want to be the one using it, but I'd love to have one.  hahahah.

 

Cari- Sending you healing energy.  Ooh, I'd love some new towels.  I need to figure out what color to get that won't look dingy after a handful of washes.

post #309 of 360

Maia--glad you made it up north!  We  left before the snow started, so now we're at my ILs snowed in. It's a state of emergency so we're shut in, too.

 

Someone asked what probiotics I had my DH on. They're the Whole Foods brand probiotics. They're tiny little things, don't need refrigeration, and are about $23, I think.

 

I received bad news today, which makes it all the harder to stay in and do nothing. My grandfather has taken a turn for the worse and is near death. Hospice says it could be any time. I am SO glad we went to FL when we did, and that my aunt also went recently. He was my biggest advocate and hero, so this is really distressing.

Yeah, I'm thinking she is! I erased her today from my friends. And when she asks I will tell her she broke trust. And if necessary, I will erase everyone she knows from my friends. My so called friend is very close to be deleted as well. She needs to come clean with me soon or I'm gonna have to be really blunt with her. Its looks like a lot of people will not be part of my life anymore. Its so simple, if you want to be in my life, be respectful of who I am and I will do the same for you. Do NOT lie to me or go snooping behind my back! Do NOT try to make me change who I am, do NOT judge me. Accept me for me, thats all and I will do the same for you. We'll see how many of my "friends" really want to be in my life. Its their choice!

post #311 of 360

Witchy, I'm so sorry about your grandfather. Hugs, you.

 

Sunshine-- you have great resolve. Hang in there. It sucks to find out who your real friends are, but it's a good thing, too.

post #312 of 360

Maia~ Its very hard, but I'm running out of options. My first instinct was to run far away, but that's not practical! So, if I can't "fly" I must fight! This is not anyone else's life to live. Its mine! And who the hell do they think they are being "pained" by my choice. If they need to shun me, they should do so. This waiting for the shoe to drop stuff is getting old. Mom wants to "break the news", so be it and if people don't like the truth about me, they don't need to be around me. I don't want to be back there anyway. I would love to have my friends and family accept and understand, but if they won't, it seems less painful for me, to have them just not in my life! Ya know? I am starting to create my "family of choice" and that is a comfort. This is so not easy or anything I was prepared for, but I have to deal somehow!
:

post #313 of 360

SweetSunshine- I am truly so sorry you're going through this. hug.gif  You have a great attitude and plan, but it is never easy when the ones who should love us unconditionally are not.

 

Witchy-I am sorry about your grandfather's health.  He sounds like an amazing person to have in one's life.  Be gentle with yourself and I hope you DH is fully recovered soon.

 

Maia- SO GLAD you made it there!  Whew that was close!  Have fun. smile.gif

 

DOK-Hope you're staying warm and safe.

 

Wombat-Yay for snowblowers!  My parents also experienced the snow fog in northern Montana.  They said it was beautiful, but they did not want to go anywhere.  Lots of car accidents and people slipping.

 

Aeress- Congrats on the new Auntie status. thumb.gif

 

Cari- I agree with everyone here.  That is a seriously cute do.  Love it!  Also, congrats on the job, but Boo on the finger.

 

Oops!  Gotta run!

post #314 of 360

Hey mamas.

 

I know I haven't been around at all. But all is pretty much going okay. Had my little ds on 12/17/10. He was 6lbs. 15oz. and 20 inches. He's awesome and adorable. I start up with school again January 18th and Ds starts indoor soccer on the 22nd. Going to get busy, but I'm sure it will be fine. Hope to get back into posting again. orngbiggrin.gif

Ok, seriously lol... my friend nancy sliced her thumb the day before I sliced my finger... then our friend paige did HERS the next day.. and now you??????? What, is a big white bandaged appendage a new fashion accessory? ROTFLMAO.gif  Hope you didn't do TOO good a job of it!   We unwrapped mine yesterday and peeled the steri strips off and redid it... it wasn't quite as scary as I'd expected.. but still not pretty!    I don't think 10+ inches of snow counts as flurries no matter how hard its actually snowing LOL!

Well the towels we already had are a turquoise colour, and a year later they are still bright and lovely!  They didn't have anything to match at target, so I got a sort of taupe/ type colour,.. darker than a beige, but lighter than a chocolate brown.. if that makes sense?  They have just come out of the dryer and they're so lovely & fluffy :D  and I bought THREE new bras (one of mine snapped it's underwire on xmas day) because they were 30% off,  at 17bucks each?  hell yeah!  It has been years since I had 4 bras lol.  I've limped along with 2 for ages.

Good on ya!  Personally I'd just come out on fb and announce ' I'm a bloody pagan already you nosy bittys!!!" and say that anyone that doesn't like that can now exit the friends list and no longer be a concern of mine :)  But I'm jsut bitchy that way lol

Oh I'm so sorry to hear that witchy.  My beloved 'gdaddy' died when I was only 4.. and I STILL remember how I went through the house looking for him.  I hope he has a peaceful & calm passing and is pain free.  I'm glad you got to see him.  *hugs* to you

 

 

Nothing goin on here today mamas... got some house cleaning to do!  My bedroom has turned into a disaster area... you know how it is.. all the crap from xmas gifts .. tags, packaging all over. It's gotta get cleaned.  I'm going to the 10-15minutes thread to make a list lol.  Dh is going to do dishes and stuff that my finger wouldn't like and the boys are tidying their rooms.   I am just freaking out to get the house cleaned (not really FREAKING.. but having a huge urge to do so).  I think it's because my momma would always clean the whole house before new years, because she said it was just NOT something you did on new years (she said what you were doing on January 1 represented what you'd be doing all year long) SO... the house must be clean by new years eve.    AND I'm going to get dh to back his van up and load stuff to donate into it for a trip to St. Vinnies, and anything for kids is going to a friend whose got a neighbor that's a foster mum!.. we have several bags of stuffed toys in the garage, a big dining set that I hate, a washing machine (the lid has a broken plastic hinge, but it still works well!) among other things that I just want OUT. 

 

I want to start the new year with SPACE that is not filled with things that are not used or wanted.  After all that... I'm making a big wok of fried rice NOM!!

I'm so sorry.  candle.gif  May his passing be peaceful.  

post #317 of 360

Witchy- *hugs* thinking of you, your family and Grandfather! May he find peace.

 

Thanks for the congrats for becoming an Aunt. I really am excited.

Car news- We knew about the brakes, but now we have to put in a new battery and alternator. Some 700-800 later and we should be all set. I have had this van for over 6 years and it really runs well, we have put very little into it besides brakes, tired and oil changes, so I shouldn't complain. I can't wait for it to done though.

 

Thinking of everyone!

Right? It was VERY close. Now to see if/how I can make it back on time. I'm supposed to fly out NYE, but the news said NYC and surrounding airports have like 7000 people delayed!!! Sleeping in the airports and such. To think how close I was to becoming one of them! But I have seat assignments on my flights home, so should be good to go fingersx.gif

post #319 of 360

Witchy, so sorry about your Grandfather.

 

Maia glad you made it.

 

Crazy weather here.  We got 18" of snow and the wind was just horrible!!  I am so glad it's over as far as snow goes but that wicked wind is still here.

 

New Years, I am going to do what I do every year, try to make it until midnight but most likely fall asleep. 

post #320 of 360

happy healing thoughts to those who need them, both physically and emotionally.

 

we got back from Canada last night.  had our car searched by Canada customs on the way there.  no excitement on the return trip through US customs (for a change).

 

2-3 days ago, my head was itching really badly.  i thought it was because of the dry air or the chlorine in the water or just a really bad case of dandruff because of a big change in diet and environment (my mom's house has gluten in every corner)...  but last night (at midnight) i discovered the real cause: LICE!  what a pain.  going to smother heads in oil and wrap with plastic at bedtime.  meanwhile, i am queen of laundry and dh is king of the vacuum. with all the indoor activities of the past week or two, it's hard to tell if we picked them up in Canada or took them with us on a US-Canada tour, so i've been canceling lessons and our small New Year's Eve party plans, rescheduling snowsuit buying plans, and letting people (with whom we've been in contact lately) know to start picking over their own family's hair.  just in case. 

 

Cari, i hope this passes quickly.  i don't want to be picking out lice on NYD - if that's what i'll be doing all 2011.  at least my house is clean.  for the moment.
