post #241 of 296

Hey, Goldberry!  Welcome/welcome back!  I remember you as Salvia from other threads, though I don't think I was active on this one when you were.  Congratulations on Phoebe!

 

Clay - that is a tough choice.  I would hate the drive, too. And you are going to be having a baby and will have to cut yourself some slack - you just aren't going to be able to make it every day.  My pendulum/gut says "pay for the preschool" though.  Getting out of the house is going to be important to you - to all of you.  Is there anything you can find to do regularly with Tor and babe so you can stay in town during preschool hours at least some days rather than commuting back and forth?

 

It is so not ideal but I'd probably pay the cc and then withdraw the $ if necessary again in Sept for the school fees.  Does the interest savings for a few months make this worth doing at all?

 

I'm sorry that the job ended, but not sorry that you won't be stretched so thin anymore.  You need some of your energy for *you*, mama.  Hugs!

 

re: prayer - teaching children a prayer practice is important to me because (long story short) there were times when I was a child that I felt very afraid for physical and/or spiritual reasons, and prayer helped, even when there was no one to turn to.  I hope  my children are never in that kind of place, but if they are, I hope they will have prayer/meditation as tools to prevent despair/panic.  (DId I share how my dentist-anxious middle child sat in lotus in the dentist's waiting room and Om'd for 10 minutes to reduce his anticipated pain? It made it easier for him and was his idea!)

 

I think that if I had come to Paganism before having my first child, I would have tried to write/develop my own prayers and meditations.  Since I did not, I am pleased that they/we have the resource of very old prayers that have comforted so many millions/maybe even billions of people over history.  I love the idea of adding new words to old rhythms.

 

Valerie, I've read McGowan's book The Source of Miracles.  It is lovely - made me want to visit Chartres, or build my own labyrinth, changed the way I think about the Lord's Prayer.  I really recommend it highly - and thank you for  recommending McGowan in the first place.

 

(going to post and edit at this point, tired of losing posts :))

 

re: prayer beads

 

I started doing necklaces in each color of the chakra/in chakra stones over a year ago and have returned to the project lately.

My first was a heart chakra rose quartz necklace that I call my "patience" necklace.  I just restrung my solar plexus "abundance" necklace and my sacral chakra "trust" necklace.  The "trust" one makes me really happy right now  - connects to my TM.  I restrung it to add some lovely chunky carnelian stones that give it a satisfying weight.  I may edit to add pics...

 

I have a bunch of white/clear quartz, amethyst, and flourite beads that I want to make into a crown chakra necklace.  One problem I've had is finding wire strong enough to carry heavy/stone beads that doesn't fray and discolor the beads - that was a real problem with the rose quartz and I had to take the strand apart and clean the beads.  I don't want discolored white/clear quartz!  I've been using nylon-wrapped steel.  I am a beading newbie - what would you all recommend?

 

When I first tried using my dh's rosary, I had no idea what prayers to say.  I sat in meditation and said a different prayer/petition/thought for each bead.  And it worked - I made a very powerful spiritual conection to the Goddess usually known in my world as Mary.  I love the idea of the Pagan Prayer Beads book and the Pagan Lending Library. I'm in - more later!

it's actually sort of the same concept as FEs...... change the energy pattern, and send energy along the new pattern, and that new pattern becomes habit. (tapping, too. ;-)

 


exactly. yoga helps that too. i occasionally use my rescue remedy. i am interested in some FE's can you give me just ONE to start with. i am looking for something to help with emotional stuff like depression. i might sneak it into DH's tea too. ;)

It's the companion book to this called the Sweet Poison quit plan.  The experts would never be allowed to say that it's addictive and bad... just look at how much $$ he US govt pumps into the sugar /hfcs industry!  It's really sad that they are resigning entire generations of american kids to eating rubbish and starting on the road to a very unhealthy life.. all for the sake of $ .   The things the book says make perfect sense.. so much sense that it's fairly obvious that the govt & food industry DOES know this,  but they dont' WANT to know it as it is not in THEIR interest.  I am absolutely making the shift!   Today the kiddo & I stopped at the coffee shop (we had to grab a few things at the supermarket so while we were there ;)  and I suprised my barista friend by ordering a regular flat white with no sugar, and added my own splenda :).

 

I'm feeling very edgy with the whole NZ earthquake at the moment... I listened to the news earlier and the presenter was talking to a lady on a mobile phone that was trapped UNDER HER DESK in a collapsed building.  And the silly cow was asking things like what is around you... HELLO the building is around her,  she is terrified and this is what you ask her??  Comfort the woman, let her know help is on the way etc... I'm so disappointed in humanity at moments like that!    On the upside, we heard from our brothers almost immediately.. they are a couple of hours south (in Dunedin) but Nigel often goes to Christchurch with work so it was nice to hear they are ok.  We have had a bad year thus far, down here in the southern Hemisphere :( 

 

 



thanks. he is going to get evaluated at a rehab place today. he keeps waffling about going to rehab or just getting counseling and antidpressants. he is scared i think. he hasnt drank since. i am going to fill out paperwork to see about getting county funding for him to go to therapy.

 

splenda is made from sugar. have you tried stevia or anything else?

 

oh my yes, you guys have been hit hard this year. i am so glad to hear you and your family are still ok.

 

post #243 of 296

Thanks for the welcome backs! I will be sending the book to Valerie and she can coordinate passing it on when she is ready.

I love having a third daughter! You are right, it does feel magical, especially because I am the third of three daughters! We do still have our goats- and two sheep - and ten chickens. Love them and I should be out feeding them right now!

post #244 of 296


Oh, how am I going to do a quick fly-by? I have so much to say, and so many of you to reply to, and about nine minutes, lol!

Thank you to ALL about the rosary suggestions, especially Aubergine, Sweetsunshine, and Clay, all of you YES were very helpful!! Later I'm going to collate and print them out, lol. Somehow. And then maybe I can start a rudimentary praying thingy tomorrow, or the next day! YAY!

It does, which is why I LOVE "fake it till you make it". I have people tell me that "fake it" is lying and so won't do it, but hell-- no, it's not. You DO eventually "make it". It's growing a habit, IMO.

I had to read it a couple of times, but YES, it clarified a LOT. Thank you! And I'll be thinking of you amongst my own hugely busy day, tomorrow. I will try to remember to light a candle for you hug2.gif Must contemplate your school vs. debt issue. I have the same sorts of conflicts (well, not at all the same but the feelings are the same).

Woohoo Salvia! I mean, GoldBerry (lurve it!). Congrats! Love the name. We had a succession of parakeets named Phoebe when I was a kid...even the boy ones lol.gif Yeah, we liked that name in our family smile.gif

I hate that! Those days, sometimes the only thing that keeps me going is knowing "All I have to do is get to bed at the end of the day, and I can have a new day tomorrow". Hang in there!

Lioness-- dunno if it'd be any helpful, but he's welcome to dialogue with me if he wants to. Seeing's how I've been there and all. Well, not rehab. But I'm an alkie and all that. If he has questions. He can relay them through you if need be. Or y'all can PM me. Glad to be of help :)

there are some FEs that are supposed to be *excellent* for addictions, if your dh was interested, there are certainly FEs that might help.

 

there are also many that are splendid for depression-- in fact, there are a lot of articles online about people getting off depression meds and using FEs with amazing success. how does it mainly manifest for you? anxiety/fear is often treated with mimulus. i read about that one being used a lot with anxiety/depression. mustard might be better for "gloom" as opposed to *fear*.

 

but those are just two from the english line.... there are oodles others, that might be more well suited to you. the FE threads (there are two, lol) are *excellent*.... but i admit, can be overwhelming. BUT, bluets and panserbjorn are both wonderful and very giving of their time & knowledge. might be worth a pop over and ask for suggestions. (or tell me, and i can think about it, too. :-)

 

links, if you want to peek/post: FE thread in H&H and FE thread in spirituality

 

hugs, hon. feel free to PM me, if you like!

 

ETA: i just did this online quiz that someone on one of the threads had posted, and it "found" my remedy-- the one i am taking... which makes me feel ok about suggesting it. :-) might be a way to help find a FE to start with...

post #246 of 296

I'm so sorry to have been so invisible guys! Thinking of you daily. Currently immune system is attacking my bladder (cystitis) so yeah...

 

Thinking of you Clay, and all who need it. :)

post #247 of 296

UnschoolinMA, hoping you find some relief soon!

 

Clay, I'm thinking of you too...

 

My pagan shop may be moving...to 5 minutes away from me! It's all very preliminary, but things feel promising! My friend really wants to expand and make it into a spiritual center more than a retail shop (though that too). The property being looked has lots of land, with a pond behind it.I told her I'd love to start doing handfastings and other rites of passage--it's something I've been wanting to do for awhile now. I've looked into Cherry Hill Seminary--anyone else hear of it?

 

And now I'm thinking I want to change my major. I have coursework toward a PhD in Applied Linguistics, but I haven't gone back (for many reasons) since my DD was born. Lately, I've been thinking about Anthropology instead, but....I'm having trouble justifying starting over again.

post #248 of 296

Witchy- I have had some leanings towards returning to school, but every time I imagine myself in school, studying with three kids underfoot, I get all anxious. That was a sure sign that I wasn't ready. Hehe. I think anthropology is great! My masters/doctorate is the one thing I want to do just for myself. Do you feel ready? I don't believe there is a perfect time to do anything, there may be a better time, a harder time, a quieter time, a busy time, but best time is a near impossible time to nail down. If you are ready, go for it!

 

UnschoolnMa- Sorry you are having a really bad patch! Thinking of you!

 

This Saturday I am teaching a Harry Potter class, well, more of a rotating center based workshop, but we are calling it Hogwarts on the Lake. I am looking forward to it. The kids are making wands, hats, potions, quills. Then the following week we are doing more potions, a magick spell, and another activity. This week, the kids get "Bertie Botts", next week we are doing pumpkin juice and pastries. Lots of fun!

post #249 of 296

Boo to chronic pain.  Hope you feel better soon, Unschooln.

 

V. cool about the Harry Potter do, Aeress!  And the car, btw!

 

Just popped in to say you are in my thoughts, Clay.  Hoping hard that all goes smoothly today.

 

Popping cell salts, hoping to ward off (yet another) migraine.

Thread Starter 

Clay- You will be in my thoughts today.  Hoping you get fabulous news.

 

Aeress- I told my son about your HP class and he wishes he could go.  It sounds like so much fun!  Would you be willing to share your outline/curriculum for it?

 

Hi to everyone else.  So sorry that I don't have time to respond to everyone.  I'll try to respond to some of you on fb later.

Hugs to all!

post #251 of 296

The girls are playing their recorders along to Rob Zombie's Living Dead Girl.  It's hysterical!  Which is good, because I'm looking for some fun and giggles.  I've decided the best way to get through today is to just smile and laugh and deny deny deny!  The weather is helping too... it just started snowign again with these HUGE goose feather style flakes.  Very Mother Holle, so I'm feeling blessed and like everything is going to be what it needs to be.  Thanks for the thoughts and vibes all!

 

~~~~~~

School- The drive will stink (especially given my phobia!), but I've been driving 30-45 minutes each way for two years already (so Tor's newborn days were spent similarly).  Although the drive will now be longer, it's not hugely longer than it already is.  Though I'm sure it's going to "feel" longer since I have to go through town during morning rush hour.  Ugh.  And shudder.  And whimper.

 

There are sort of two conflicting sets of problems.  On the one hand is our family dynamic/needs of family members.  DD1 is crazy outgoing and active.  She adores all things hands on and at high speed.  Legally she has to be in school this coming year.  DD2 has SPD and is very, painfully, withdrawn from things that can cause unpredictability (like other people)... and part of her therapy over the past few years has been to work one on one with a PT to learn how to accept and manage new sensations.  She was getting 4-6 hours a week of therapy and making progress.  But now she gets NO therapy other than what I can manage to provide and those gains are slipping back.  She needs to be in a more sensory intense setting where she can at least hold the line.  So, the law says dd1 has to be in school and her own personality says she needs a lot of social/interactive/outside time.  And her personality says that dd2 hates to be outside but needs to be challenged by a nurturing social and sensory stimulating environment.

 

The push and pull of the outgoing extrovert and the withdrawing introvert!  And the real challenge is that due to our rural location we "need" a program that can handle both dd1 and dd2 at the same time/same place. Our local elem school is very financially challenged, under staffed, and friends who have taught there (mostly subs, the school has high turnover) said they personally wouldn't send their own children there.  But more to the point... they don't have a program that dd2 could attend.  If dd1 attends that school then there are no programs for dd2 that we could reach (programs here all have very similar start/end times and with a half hour minimum drive to anywhere I can't be in two places at once!  lol).  So despite being free for dd1, the public school option isn't really on the table.

 

Then there is the financial push/pull.  Our credit card debt is such that we would need 30k+ to pay it all off.  So while the tax return would certainly be a step in the right direction, it's literally a drop in the bucket.  (it's under 5k)  Dh wants to use the tax return for the cc debt and then "find a way" to make the preschool tuition payments.  I'm all in favor of paying down the cc debt (I'm the one who really pushed for it and the one who stresses about it more) but if we put the tax return towards that then I don't think we can manage the preschool tuition.  The school contract is VERY explicit and, short of the  there is no way out of paying the full year tuition once the contract is signed (even moving away or withdrawing the child doesn't negate the financial obligation).  So once we sign the contract we are absolutely committed to paying.  I told dh that IF we sign the contract then we HAVE to have the money sitting there in the bank... and then he can "find a way" to add the amount of the tuition payment to the cc snowball.  He didn't think he'd be able to do that, which kind of proved my point that we just don't have that much "free" in the budget once my extra income is removed.

 

ARGH!  lol  No one warned me about this when I got pregnant with dd1, you know?  Sure they said life would be crazy, but this crazy?

 

And I was thinking that maybe if we didn't do the preschool we could instead sign the girls up for children's yoga (there is a studio just for kids, they can assist children with special needs in the general classes, and there is a 4-6 age group that both girls could attend) and maybe horse riding lessons (since I know hippotherapy can help with sensory integration and maybe it would also give dd2 more confidence in her abilities?).  I also have a friend who teached irish fiddle and maybe we could do a back to back fiddle lesson for the girls?  I just don't know if that sort of thing would result in more driving for me and if it would provide enough of the right sorts of stimulation for dd2/social interaction for dd1.

 

Giggle.  Now off to dance in the snow and hope for happy scans and a negative cancer score!  Or at least answers and plans of action.

post #252 of 296

Clay - sending positive healthy A-OK vibes all day today.

 

Quick pop-in as I feel like I have been MIA for too long, but I have kept all of you in my thoughts as I try and keep up with the pace of this thread.

 

Work = beastly and many other words which would consitute a UAV for me, but I have one bright spot which was a new deck I had ordered back over xmas.  It arrived weeks ago, but in the midst of decluttering my desk or as I refer to it - the island of broken and forgotten things, I found the mail package again.

 

Now I've been skeptical when I hear folks say - you know when you find "your" deck of cards.  Well I found mine (or it found me!).  I opened them and ooooooh the hairs on the back of my head stood up and yup - we're gobsmacked with each other.   love.gif  Here's a link of what they look like: http://www.amazon.com/Healing-Angels-Oracle-Doreen-Virtue/dp/B001HC7VRK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1298566847&sr=8-1#_

 

Miss everyone dearly and I hope to pop in more often!  Healing thoughts, hugs and joy to all ya'll!  blowkiss.gif

How cool would that be. You could walk to it! I've heard of Cherry Hill, but not much else. Just "heard of". Anthropology sounds fun. Actually Clay has me interested in working in a library-- or a bookstore. But then it'd be like working at a flea market, or a bakery-- too much addiction there for me! lol.gif

Gawd, that sounds so fun. Hey, if you can get Bigelow's Pumpkin Spice herb tea, it makes an amazing pumpkin juice, both hot and cold. If you sweeten it.

OMG, that's like the day I heard my 10yo ds (well, he was 9) singing something by the Dead Boys, around the house, and then another day, God Save The Queen by the 'Pistols. I was like, how in the world do you know those songs??? I mean-- I listened to them when they were new! Like 25 years ago! Turns out they were on a skateboarding Nintendo DS game. Who knew. I saw White Zombie back when I was like...hmm, awhile ago. Can't remember if I'd gotten sober by then or not. I think maybe so. I don't know why but I'm thinking they were with Type O Negative? But that can't be right. I must be mixing up shows.

 

How are you today? It's 2:25-- did you get your stuff done yet? What's the news, hon? Oh gods I hope it's good, or at least Not Bad hug2.gif

 

M had an utterly horrid night last night, and all day yesterday, actually. He had a run-in with his boss first thing in the morning, and got sent home. I kind of don't blame him, as the boss is a young, I-inherited-a-business-I-know-nothing-about-but-I'm-your-boss kind of idiot, and treats M like a slave, and M just kind of had it up-to-here with it. OTOH, he could probably have handled it with more grace than he likely did.

He got really, really depressed over it-- he's over a barrel. It's not like jobs are a dime a dozen. Even though he can't make ends meet as it is, it's better than the alternative.

 

Then, as if that wasn't bad enough, he needs more meds (higher dosage), and he was more depressed than he should have been, and....check this out-- it was past his bedtime, the icing on the cake arrived-- his ex told him, in a very vindictive way, that 10 years ago she never did sign the divorce papers or sent them in, so they aren't divorced after all huh.gif Here he was thinking he's been divorced for 10 years!!! I don't know if it's true, or she's just being...well, something I can't say. But I'll tell you what, she said she wanted money out of him, and he said he didn't have any, and get this: she said "How much does <Maiasaura> mean to you? Find the money". yikes.gif Son of a motherless goat. Srsly???

 

Thankfully that particular issue has plenty of time to resolve. But ye gods!!
 

post #255 of 296

ktg, yay for cards!

 

maia, oh, gods, hon. hugs for m.

 

clay, i actually *adore* the horse/yoga/fiddle idea. i mean, i can understand feeling the need for "more" (ok, not really, i'm such a simplist, lol), but it seems to me there might be a lot to be said for flexibility in your plans right now, and given the school's inability to provide that, i would personally lean away from it, just purely pragmatically. and, again, i lurve the horse/yoga/fiddle plan. there's just something about it that feels good to me. thinking of you today.

 

dh is one major step closer to completion of his grad work. i'm so proud, and sooooooo exhausted, lol. it's been a heck of a week, dear gods. but he just gave me a really bright spot by indicating that when he's done, i get to play "eternal student" next, lol.

 

happy rodeo weekend, all! (yeah, i know. you all dont have that....) 

post #256 of 296

Clay- thinking of you!

 

Maia- what a bunch of crap, sheesh, what a horrible thing to do (the ex wife)

post #257 of 296

I didn't even try to keep up in January and February. I spent too much time in my DDC I suppose.

 

*hugs* to many of you as I read some of the last few pages.

 

I am 21 weeks today and so far so good...baby looks awesome and other than a small cold I have at the moment, things are doing well. We have an interview in early March for DD's school. I'm not worried about the school part, because she loves preschool. I am worried about the school bus since she doesn't have the strength in her ankles to go up stairs by herself and she has hypotonia so her abdominals aren't strong either so I am afraid that sitting in a school bus without restraints may not be a good idea. I will have to see what they offer.

 

Clay - you have so much going on mama, I am wishing you a few moments of meditation so the gods can speak to you about what is best for your family.

 

Like many of the treasure mappers, I am in a decluttering mode. I did my two bedside tables today and it looks great (they have 3 shelves each so there was a good pile of stuff. Part of it is getting ready for baby I know.

 

I am trying to find some great resources for a blessingway. So many thoughts about it...I don't have many people to invite...but I would like to make a necklace (maybe get some online friends or people far away to send a few that we can put together), walk a labyrinth, and not sure what else...maybe a few readings or picnic in the park providing the weather is good. I know there is one book out there that is pretty popular. I may just have to hit the library and take a peak.

 

Sending lots of healthy, peaceful vibes to all the pagan mamas!

post #258 of 296


Clay, good luck hun.  I agree though, I wouldn't obligate myself to pay the tuition based on the idea that you'll find it somewhere!  If dh doesn't think you can find the money to snowball the cc debt after paying tuition it's unrealistic to think the converse would be true either.

Um... how could he not know he did not recieve a final declaration of divorce (or whatever it's called?)????  I'm pretty sure that'd be extortion and that he should give legal aid a call and/or contact a paralegal that handles divorces.  If he filed 10yrs ago but she didn't sign there may be a way around her?

 

 

It's my work weekend, so I will likely not be on till sunday night or monday!  I have to share something cool though... I get to go to the kids 'parade' (which is basically an assembly) today because Connor is student of the week thumb.gif  He's been in his new, grade 1, class about 3 days now and he really likes it... and the teacher is terrific.  Lucas is getting better in class, behaviour wise, slowly but surely, as well joy.gif

Maia, I just have to say - jaw.gif  at the story of M's ex.  What a pile of coprolites.  I'm sorry he had such a bad day - hope tomorrow is better.

 

 

Migraine - gone  almost instantly with cell salts.  See Cell Salt thread in Heath and Healing for more on my astonishment about this.  I've been fighting migraines for 20 years and have NEVER experienced such complete and instant relief.  And it hasn't worn off, either.
