But since I can't tell them WHY I'm being so unrelentingly anti-social it looks really bad. DH and I had wanted to wait till valentine's day but... I don't know that I can make it that long. I'm going to look into those sea band acupressure things... acupressure (well, acupuncture with those mobil pin pads) really helped last time. At least it's Friday... this has been a very long week. Hmmm... seems like it's been a very long month for everyone here.
I'm sorry you're having a rough time, but I'm SO happy that everything is olooking good so far! I know you have a bit of time to wait yet for the definite all good, but holy moly that must have lifted a huge weight off your shoulders! Had a laugh at your parking spot story... I would totally do the same and if they complained, Um SORRY that is a parking spot for a CAR...not a table?

aeress, hugs! i remember the icky snow phase....blech. it's warm enough today to open the house, and i am praising all the great spirits of sunshine and warmth.
i remembered an idea i had for imbolc, and wanted to come share-- i'm sure some of you have mentioned this in the past, but i came across an idea online to do cherries jubilee for dessert! (or bananas foster). flames, right? anyhow. i got a kick out of that idea, and plan on doing it. YUMMERS.
mo3~ lurve the name! hope you got some yummy food, and hope you're all doing well and enjoying your "babymoon"! maybe someday soon i can come meet her in person, and make sure her momma has some good FEs. :-)
Mmmmm flaming desserts sound NOM hehe.
I have my first night on my own at work tonight, little bit nervous so I'm going in early to clarify a few things with the guy working before me. Just so I know where the car key is, how to get INto clients houses if I do have to go out on a call etc lol. and other assorted stuff like that!
The boys finished their first week of school... Connor's teacher & I met thursday, she offered extra help etc with his reading but said he's a lovely boy in class :) Apparently there is a skills test in a few months and if he doesn't pass it he will get lots of extra funding for assistance...I'm pretty happy with that ;) Lucas is having real problems.. he broke down in tears because he is afraid (after they went donw the behaviour management chart) that he'll get sent to the principals office He says he tries to be as 'good' in class as some of the other kids, but he sometimes can't. So I'm going to see if we can't catch the Principal on campus and have a casual chat with her about what happens if you DO go there, so he can see that she isn't a monster that will eat his soul and all that. He's also stressing over the NOISE... he says too many kids talking, too much NOIse from the construction going on all over the campus still. He says he can't concentrate on his work... knowing him that's entirely accurate.
And ye gods.. I have to share what my MIL did.. you guys know how I'm always saying I have an awesome MIL right? SO I never expected this! She drove them to school for me Friday as I had training for work, and I mentioned he was stressed.. she launched into a speech about (to lucas) how it was so much better if he settles into school now, and we all have to do things we don't want, but when kids wait till high school to go from hs to regular school they have missed out on learning so much that they HAVE to be sent away to boarding school or they will never go to university or get jobs etc!!!! I blew an effing gasket at her, and I raised my voice and told her to stop RIGHT NOW as she had no idea wtf she was talking about and wtf was she doing trying to terrorize the kid instead of just saying 'you'll settle in soon and love it, don't worry' to him!?!??!!? She was awfully quiet after that ( I had to leave not long after anyway) and i apologized for yelling but said I stand by everything I said and let her know that I didn't need her to discuss it with him at all. ugh.
Anyway.. gonna get some laundry done and such :) Have alovely day/evening mamas
