GranolaMama: Good luck on the job!
Big hugs to you, BeantownBaby. I can only imagine the stress of such a loss during pregnancy. As it is, I can’t stop crying, this pregnancy, about the loss of my father, over 18 years ago. It’s wonderful that they were able and willing to do the u/s at your house so your mother could get a look at her grandson before she passed. Good luck to you, too, on the job!
spughy, I hope you can get the itching tamped down. I love the idea with the Halloween Candy Monster. I wonder if, at five, my daughter is too old to institute something like that. I do remember reading that a little every day is worse than eating it all at once, and I’ve been trying to figure out a way around that.
Wow, scarletsmiles, I wish I had more room in my freezer. I would totally follow suit and be making freezer meals on the days I have energy! I hope your husband gets a good job at a good place!
maydaymom, congrats on the certification!
veganyogamomma, wow, I hope you guys find an alternative arrangement soon! If I had to live with *my* mom, I think I would slowly go insane. I love her to pieces, but she drives me crazy! :)
afm, wow... it's been a crazy week! I totally stressed over the storm hitting on the coast and watched with anxiety as all of my friends out that way checked in via facebook. At the point I wanted to start crying, I decided to push myself away from the computer. Tuesday was spent working on my daughter's costume--FINALLY! I finished it at 6am Wednesday morning, only to discover that the neckline dropped so low in front that my daughter's chest was exposed. Oy. So, I spent most of Wednesday frantically trying to size it down. Didn't work. I still wound up sticking safety pins in it to make it fit. It looked adorable, at least! I'll have to post pictures! Yesterday was spent catching up on the sleep I missed out on Tuesday night. I woke up with my eyelids swollen Thursday morning and decided that more sleep was a good idea, and I finally feel normal, today. Needless to say, I won't be doing any more all nighters for a while! I have so much cleaning to do, it's not even funny, and NaNoWriMo started yesterday! I gotta get my butt writing! One more week until I get to see my baby, and possibly find out what we're having!!
