Darn it, where did all my other multi-quotes go? I still don't love anything but the photos capabilities of this new MDC.
JayGee - I agree with taking it easy until you get more of a diagnosis, have you tried acupuncture? I know you've probably tried everything at this point. I'm so sorry.
Bec - I hear you on the pet reaching it's total vet value. I'm glad Gromit had a good outcome though. That's a relief.
Penelope - Enjoy your time! I'm impressed that you've rented a bike, you rock!
Nemesis - Not on your loop through WA though we're farther north up past memiles.
Real - Damn girl! You are one active mama pulling two littles around in you trailer!
Gaye - Oh that Colorado sun! Beautiful shots and what a ride! Is that your cancer-free friend? Have a great TRI!
Nic - Glad you had some time to talk with dh. And welcome back to NE! I bet that the roads will be cleared pretty efficiently there since it's hardly news when it snows heavily. I grew up in NE CT and we did fine with a front wheel drive back in the day.
JenLove - Any decisions on houses? That's a big decision, do you feel more connected to one place over the other? I guess I'd say that the house is such a long term commitment and moving-trauma, while sucky in the moment, is over so quickly in the grand scheme that I'd go for the house with the better feel if all else is equal.
DrJen - You must be getting ready for your move huh? Did everything get ironed out with the appraisal?
Mommajb - Any news on your impending westering?
RM - How are you doing mama?

And seriously, I DO NOT think your Dh is worried about you gaining weight, more likely worried that you will turn crazy on him. At least that's what my Dh likes about me exercising is that it makes me sane
This is really true. I wonder if I've been off my mojo since I'm not ready to face that reality but I can pretend that everything would be normal if I just don't get out there to see. Babbling. Anyway, yes. Good point and JayGee - That's what I think too! Your dh does not sound like a Shallow Hal, I'm sure he gets that exercise is important to you and just doesn't want to see you losing it without verified cause.

Good luck to them today! Kick ass boys!
RR: Well, I swam a bit the other day. Then my whole torso ached all night. I'm guessing it's an indication of my feebitude.
NRR: DD1 is having a hard time. She has been the greatest big sister to Ali G since Day 1 but suddenly it's like she has reached her limit on patience and kindness and she just can't tolerate anything anymore. I can understand but it's hard to see it unfolding because really Ali G is so cute. She's sweet and funny and says really nice things like, "Chiara, I'm glad you're my sister today, I love you" so when C jumps down her throat for singing everyone Happy Birthday in the morning it makes C look like a big meanie. I've been trying to make sure I get lots of one on one time with C in addition to the counseling sessions but it's hard. The effects don't last long once we add anyone else into the mix and it's exhausting trying to buoy her mood all the time. That sounds terrible doesn't it? I'm just finding it very hard to see how our life which from my perspective is pretty sweet, could feel so awful to her. She just seems able to extract the worst aspect of any situation and see only that. Yes, I guess empathy is not my strong suit. SIGH. And her gloominess makes me wonder if I'm having false memories when I think back on her early childhood and remember her as being really happy all the time. And if that was the case, what happened? Did I totally screw up and do something or not do something that's ruined her? Either way it feels like I failed her. Frack.
Other NRR: I'm trying to start this half day theatre camp this summer and I just can't get kids to sign up. I seriously don't understand why. The price is on the low end of summer day camps and I had such an overwhelmingly positive response from the kids and parents over the fall show I really thought some of them would come out for this. But no. The only thing I can think of is that they get to be in the show for free and don't want to pony up any $ to do it at all. But seriously, it's $5 an hour. Who can even find a competent babysitter for that? (and of course I don't make anything close to that unless we get about a dozen more kids to sign up). Whatev. On Monday I get to pawn my wares to pretty much every kid that's likely to be interested when the Missoula Children's Theatre comes to town - but again, they do it all for free so maybe I'm just delusional that there will be anyone left who's into it enough to pay anything. Frack me.
Thank you Battlestar Galactica for my new family friendly potty mouth.
