post #101 of 188

I'm late to the party, but congrats to Nicole and happy birthday to Cayden!

 

I was busy celebrating my own birthday this week - the 15th was my third annual 29th birthday.  It made me feel all the more pressed to work on baby and house and career plans as fast as I can.  I know I need to slow down and take one thing at a time, and trust Kali to lead me in the right direction, but knowing and doing are very different things.

 

Is anyone here in the Baltimore area?  I'm wondering if there are any other Pagan bookstores in the area besides The Turning Wheel.

Where in the world is everybody?? Y'all off busy doing summery things?

 

We did NOTHING today. Slack, slack, slack redface.gif

 

Well...to my credit, ds and I went for a small walk to/in the cemetery around the corner. He brought a bag lunch but before he could get his sandwich halfway done, a yellow jacket landed on the bag, so we hightailed it away from there...at least, put the food away, but we kept walking.

 

I feel called to learn yoga, a little bit. I feel like I need to move, but I hate exercise, frankly...and I've been way too sedentary. I'm not usually like this. I've always hated exercise but I've never been this much of a lazy slacker! I found a site online that gives free lessons, but I tried to do the first one and you can't go full-screen with it irked.gif and it's a TEENY tiny image. I'll keep looking, though.

Oh I hope everyone is keeping cool this weekend - especially if you're in the midwest!!  I had a wonderfully large multi-quote response ready to go, but then DH distracted me with ... oh yes making the kiddos lunch.  shrug.gif while I sat inside with the A/C after doing a considerable amount of work outside today. 

 

Anyhoo - brief recap - Wolf - Yup, It is Jean Auel's series.  I got my library card (finally) this summer and I am remembering how much I love to read.  *swoon*

 

MaxsFox - Happy Birthday and don't worry - we're never late to the party here, just fashionably late delayed sometimes winky.gif

 

Maia - I could have used a slacker day today.  But that's what we did yesterday - sorta which really means I got some time to run a bunch of errands alone while DH wrangled/entertained the kids.  I did find at Target in the dollar bins - these super fun crayola workbooks for 3+ kids.  They had a series of 5, so I picked them up for boys and I think I'll go back to get some more since #1 is burning through them at lighting speed.

 

Yoga - I would check out yogajournal's site.  If you register (free!) they have a build your own sequence series, and personally I love the gaiam videos as they are very easy to get into and I just found them at our library (including the meditation ones too!!).  I would start with AM/PM yoga as it is very gentle to starting up a practice.

Welcome to the world, Cayden Alexander!!!  flowersforyou.gif hooray hooray hooray!   looking forward to hearing his/your birth story.  

 

Wolfcat, I am excited about your book!   I love the idea, I want one now for me and Z to read!!!  I hope everything with it works out well and it's everything you hoped it could be...and more, of course!!  that's just so cool.

 

Maia, when I started yoga I started with a yoga for beginners through Gaiam.  it was slow but really helped me to get the main poses down. It was good groundwork. 

 

Happy Birthday, MaxsFox.  orngbiggrin.gif  

 

This weekend our family took the camping trip I was asking the advice for.  It went pretty well, actually.  I'm very proud of my little family!  We were up in what they call the "western foothills of the adirondacks" and the weather was perfection, thankfully.  That full moon helped us with lighting, also, actually.  Z loved the lake - my sister gave us this special little float that had a place for babe and her legs and then a spot for it to go around me so we could swim and be comfy and not have the death grip on her...just a mild grip... it's a beautiful lake though and no motorized boats are allowed on it so it was so so peaceful and beautiful.  Thanks to everyone for the advice.  It helped to have a few familiar things from home and we used the PnP when we were cooking to keep her safe and keep the "not for Zoey"s to a minimum.  

 

Hope everyone had fun summer weekends. :)

Wintery things here :)  but not even doing a great deal of those... I sorta feel like hibernating at times.  And I'll be honest... not really feeling the MDC love these days.   Everything is snarky and nasty,  it sucks a lot of energy to waste time getting involved in threads only to have them turn into near shit fights greensad.gif  I know THIS thread doesnt, but just the whole site is feeling teh suck lately,

I agree with this - but I think there are a lot of things in the mix, which kind of makes it double uggarific in my book.  I saw your post in that trainwrecked thread in LAS about your experience with the boys.  I was sad to see it take the turn it did and probably it was not the best title of all times which added to the mix (and I mean gasoline to the fire), but it started out as kind of an interesting discussion.

For yoga online- try the yogamazing podcasts! You can get them at iTunes for free and the guy does great at describing what good posture should FEEL like.
post #110 of 188

I like yogajournal.com they have video lessons as well as poses based on skill level and condition or reason for your yoga session. I am a fanatic yogini and practice at least fifteen minuets but closer to an hour each day. I can not get over how much I love yoga, I hope to someday become a yoga instructor.

Oh and since this is a Pagan Thread, where can I find information on if there is a Universalist Church or Pagan Alliance like organization in a small town that I'm moving to this fall? There is a Universalist church in a town close to the one I am in now but I've only made it out there twice in the past four years and I would like to get more involved and active in my faith (or one of my faiths)

post #111 of 188

MamaYogiBear- check out WitchVox... they have a fairly up to date listing of active groups by region.  And if you don't see anything "right there" in the specific town, see if you can find a group within an hour or two drive and then contact them... they might be able to give you contact info for a more local group that simply isn't big enough or interested enough in publicity to post on WitchVox.

 

Camping- YAY!!!!!!!  I'm glad it went well, and I hope you have many more family trips to come!  :)

 

Slacking- I busted butt over the weekend and got TONS done on Saturday.  I paid for it by being nearly paralyzed on Sunday and while I'm feeling a lot better at the moment, I'm still pretty sore.  The weather here is just plain nasty... hot as heck (well, mid 90s) and HUMID.  It keeps doing that annoying "rain for 4 minutes then stop" thing that just makes the humidity worse... everything is damp and hot and unpleasant.  Not my type of weather at all.  And this morning my mom stopped by in the middle of our homeschool block (two hours where we just focus on school stuff) and threw the whole routine off.  DD1 got into a huge snit, ds was no longer distracted by his pile of special activities, and dd2 just sort of wandered off.  Argh!  And then as I got everyone back on track after my mom left, my aunt called and that was it.  I gave up!  We did just about everything I had planned for the school day though so yay to that.  (but can I say DD1 was all excited to read a story to her grandmother and my mom was just... "not supportive"... of dd1's new reader abilities and that caused the metldown and I can just see that I'll be working on dd1's confidence for the next week to get her back to where she was before my mom arrived.  sigh)

 

Garb- I really wanted to go to the thrift store and look at sheets/pillowcases/curtains that could be turned into garb for our SCA trip.  I pulled everything out from last year and while each kiddo has one or two items of clothing, they really need 5-6 tunics each.  Dh is fine, I found enough garb that will fit my belly to last a week, but the kids?  A very big "hmmmmm".   But I'm just so icky feeling due to the weather... I can't bear the thought of piling everyone into the van and driving into town.  I just want to sleep!  lol

I keep reading about that, but I haven't seen any of it. I've been looking on purpose, too. I mean...not any more than I've always seen. It's always been there. I think I'm just aging out of it, actually...which is sad, because it's been such an integral part of my life for the past 10+ years greensad.gif

I don't have pods or i-anything...it'd have to be streaming online. For free.

I'll check them out! They do have free yoga here in my town. I think it's to promote yoga in hopes that the people will go to lessons given by the instructors that donate their time to the community yoga, or maybe they just want to promote yoga because they love it, but either way, I need to get off my lazy arse and get up and GO. You can't beat free live lessons.

 

UU should have websites...maybe google "UU <your town>" and see what comes up?

You ALWAYS bust your butt, Clay nut.gif I get tired looking at your list of what didn't get done in your day!

 

They need all those tunics because you're there for a long time, right? Maybe can someone watch the kiddos while you go alone to town? How much time do you have to make them? How many hand-me-downs can you use? Do you have anything up in that attic anymore that might suffice?

 

Yeah...it's due to be hotter than hot here, for the foreseeable future. We had a reprieve for two days where I got to turn off the A/C and I actually wore sweats for a day or two, indoors! But now we're due for mid-90s again greensad.gif

 

Oh, the showing that was canceled...all the realtor could get out of them was "location". We haven't had any others, and there's an open house on the 31st; please send out "sell house" vibes! Is it against policy here for me to post the link to my house? Maybe y'all could post it on your FBs or something? I'd be so grateful to get the word out any way possible.
 

 

post #113 of 188

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  The weather was nice here in MI, but the really hot and sticky stuff is this week and it's got a nice hot start to the week.

I loathe Mondays.  *sigh*  Back to the weekly grind of homework and housework.  Good thing my mom picked up all the kids today and they won't be home till Wed.

I actually mopped the floors today!  That's a pretty big deal, as it ends up being useless when the kids are trekking through the house constantly.

 

We are spending time looking for a new place.  And, my van that broke down and got fixed last week, broke again over the weekend.  This is rough lol.

Good, positive thoughts!  All will prevail, and there is a reason why moving keeps getting pushed back.  Must be the universes way of letting us know there is something better, and we need to wait a little longer before we decide.  ha.

 

Anyone have any favorite witchy/pagan online shopping sites you just can't live without?  I feel the need to treat myself with a little something. hehe

 

Anyways, I hope all you ladies have a lovely weekend.  I'll be back later to read and respond.

 

Namaste

LeeAnn

post #114 of 188

Aw Maia... that's sweet!  I often feel like I'm running waaaaaay behind so it's nice to have a voice say dude, you did it now and then!  :)

 

Tunics... yeah, this year we're planning on staying "just" 6 days (the actual event runs for 14 days, we stayed 8 last year).  People get very very dirty at Pennsic (temps in the hundreds with a heat index that puts it into the serious danger zone, random torrential rainstorms that turn everything into nasty thick mud, dust, the works) and there isn't an easy way to launder stuff so especially for the kids I'll need a "new" outfit for each day.  Right now the children's garb I have is one gown for dd1, one gown for dd2, and a tunic for ds.  There is also one skirt and one shirt that fit dd2.

 

Tunics (or drop the hem and it's a gown) are pretty easy... a t-tunic is pretty simple.  Just fold a rectangle of fabric over with the fold at the top, hem the sides and shape the sleeves.

 

   -----[___]-----

The final product looks like a T.  :)  Last year the kiddos were small enough that I used thrift store pillow cases as tunics (just cut neck and arm holes) but this year that wont work.  I'll still probably use thrift store sheets though.  And there is a garb exchange at War where I might be able to find one or two items that would fit the kids (people bring outgrown children's garb and put it on a grab bag table) but it's not a sure thing.  So I just need to do it... on the one hand it would rock if dh could watch the kiddos while I shopped/sewed on the weekend, but on the other hand our thrift store has it's big 50% off sales on tuesday/wed so in terms of budget that makes more sense.  The kids love the thrift store but it's hard to keep all of them in line with so many "fun" things to look at.  The real torture is that the store puts all their books along the back wal... hundreds of really fun things... but along the other side of the aisle are all the clear glass items.  So the ONE aisle where I really want to take my time and focus on titles is also the one aisle I have to constantly be on "broken glass" alert as ds goes bonkers.  Why oh why couldn't they shelve the tupperware there? 

post #115 of 188

I need all the prayers, good vibes, and positive energy you ladies have.  Max and I are looking into moving north and buying a house.  That would give us some land for a small homestead, save us money, and be closer to my son.  But Max needs to find a better job that will be able to pay for me to stay home with our future kids, and the area we're looking at is pretty rural.  Please send happy career vibes his way!

post #116 of 188

Hopes sent for a solid job and a happy move!  :)

 

Another hot and humid day here.  Ugh.  We did have a wonderful thunder storm last night which cooled things off after midnight, but since it left the ground wet... looking out the window I can see the road steaming and practically feel the humidity building up.

 

We are absolutely totally without a doubt going into town today... I intend to spend as much time dragging my feet through air conditioned stores as possible.  Hopefully the kiddos will be sweetness and light (giggle) or at least turn their self preservation instincts up to high so they realize that being well behaved in an air conditioned store is far far better than being trapped with cranky mom at home even if they can run wild there.  LOL

 

SO today's plan is homeschool, then into town to browse for fabric very very veeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyyyyy slowly.  Then home for lunch, splashing in the kiddie pool, and general collapse!

 

Oh, looks like we may be searching for a new family practice dr.  I don't want to!  But the doctor we see at our practice is leaving and if we have to get used to a whole new doctor we may as well try to find one that takes our insurance.  But I hate doctor shopping, and I really like our current practice.  On the other hand, 200-300 out of pocket for a well baby visit and a newborn on the way?  Not so good.  And while we use a delayed/selective vax schedule each of those vax costs around 100 dollars (some more, some a bit less) because we HAVE insurance that would cover the cost (so our practice can't use their state funded vax) but the insurance wont cover the vax at that practice so we don't get reimbursed.  Ugh!  Send me some clarity vibes, 'k?  Much thanks!

Good vibes for all! Use them for what you need. wink1.gif

 

It's hot! and humid...

 

We ate the first potatoes from the garden last night. coolshine.gif Salad, carrots, onions and radishes where also from the garden. There is one tomato that is almost ready to pick... yum! I'm glad for DH's green thumb! greenthumb.gif

 

I think I know how I'll make my labyrinth! lightbulb.gif If it goes right, maintenance will be as easy as mowing the rest of the land.  thumb.gif First step is to clean the area and get rid of the weeds... DH is suppose to pick all the leftover rugs he can find in the dumpsters on the work site; it will save us a lot of work to just cover the area with rugs and wait till the weeds are gone instead of pulling them out.

I just don't want to lose my optimism about this along the way.


Congrats and sending positive, confidence vibes your way.

I am headed to Pagan Pride Fest next month, so that should be fun.... but, here is the thing;  I have set up an alter in my living room and no matter how matter-of-fact I am about no one putting things on the alter the people in my house will not listen (mainly DH and his cousin who is our roomate).  So, what do you do?  I am thinking I need to get my bedroom cleaned up and possibly set something up in there, but I really think the same will happen especially with DH.  He just doesn't care, and it is driving me bonkers!  lol 

 

Anyone doing anything special for the full moon tonight?

TIA!  namaste.gif

LeeAnn

 

 


I would move it to an area that was all mine.  I enjoy having my alter in a place where I can go an enjoy a bit of quiet and that is visited mostly by me and a cat or two.  The full moon was beautiful, no special plans just soaked up her energy.

I have been spending the morning hours out in the garden before it gets too hot.  Funny thing you mention yoga, just yesterday I dusted off some tapes to start getting back in the swing of it.  My body has been feeling so stiff when I get up in the morning I have to do something.

We had a salad from our garden, delish:)  A labyrinth that is something I have been planning for over a year now.  I want to wait until we get to where our barn is though as there is more land.  I hope to see pictures of yours when and if you get a chance:)

How in the world did you make that? That's cool. That had to have taken some planning!

Oh, good luck to you, too! So am I. Trying to sell my house and move north. I can't be with my true love until I'm divorced from this dang house. Might you be interested in Asheville, NC? winky.gif

How did it go? I hope you were able to find some fabric and have some peace in the a/c. Ick about the doctor.


 

post #120 of 188

The kids didn't get the memo about being nice to mommy.  LOL

 

The very first store we went into, they started running in the aisle.  I told them no.  They kept running.  I reminded them of how we behave in a store, told them no running, and... they ran again.  Only this time the smacked into each other.  We left the stor within 5 minutes of our arrival with Torin screaming under my arm, Laia sobbing that she'd "be good", and Rowan screaming like a banshee and bleeding from her nose (the point of impact for the three way crash).  I sat in the car and cried for about 10 minutes.

 

Then I drove to Dunkin Donuts, got an iced coffee and a chocolate glazed donut at the drive through, cranked the a/c in the car to full and found a parking spot.  After my coffee/sugar fix and a few minutes freezing in the a/c I informed the kids that the day was starting over, if they wanted ot make it to dinner time it was going to be a "good" day with no more fussing, and we headed to the fabric store.  Torin couldn't stay still there so we went across to Target where I picked up sone discounted curtains to use as fabric for the tunics and a car seat for the new babe.  We're home now, the kids are watching a dvd, I'm contemplating filling the splash pool next to the house (one of those small inflatable pool things) and trying to get my heat addled brain to come up with a dinner idea.  Probably rice and veggies... if I make the rice now it can be cold by the time DH gets home, and we have some tofu in the freezer... so a cold rice/tofu/veggie salad type deal.  And watermelon for after.

 

The T tunic- do you mean how do you make an actual tunic, or how did I draw the tunic?  :)  It's a not very well done asci drawing (a super smilie!)... I know a few people who craft amazing asci images though.  And I'm hoping to get four dresses out of each curtain... Laia picked out a green cotton curtain and Ro picked a light blue cotton one.  Neither color is very period, or a color that will hide dirt/dust but ah well... they like them, and they'll be automatically color coded which will make getting dressed easier.  I figure the scraps can be turned into smaller "patchwork" tunices for Torin, though I found an old blackwatch flannel sheet upstairs during my weekend cleaning that should supply him with the half dozen tunics he needs, and if I leave the sleeves off and make it a bit baggy it shouldn't be too warm.  He loved getting soaked in the mist tents last year and the flannel will hold the water longer than the cotton the girls will have so it should be ok.  I think.  Probably.  LOL
