Jaimee, I was thinking small town. I'm a small town girl. If I avoided people for having different parenting philosophies, I wouldn't have anyone to talk to at all.

Abra, awesome bus.

Sonja, I'm doing an anti-rain dance for you.

Nicole, I'm jealous, I totally want to DD for the heathens.

Mal, lol, yay for feeling done.

I have nothing tonight. Soren is suddenly very big headed. He fell off the stoop earlier and put of a laundry basket later. Poor kid appears to have been beat.

Going somewhere crazy would probably be bad for me. I'll be such a light weight. Crazy means more drinking... Bad news bears. LOL

Mal, I know I'm crazy. But people with 3... Jaimee... Amanda... Kali... Who am I missing? Clinically insane. LOL

Yay for meet-ups and booze (except for Ash, who's still recovering)..

 

We're going to list the bus for $22,000

 

Oh, and Jaimee, that's exactly how I feel about long term friends.  Since I know that we'll be leaving here soon, I think I can enjoy these people.  We need to get out and socialize, even if it kills us.  heh.

 

I have 3!

4 here. So much easier than 3.
post #25 of 2728

Yup, the more you have the easier it gets.  I'm thinking 12.

DS got his boot today.  DH got his letter today.  I am in super introvert mode.

post #28 of 2728
Ash, did he lose his job completely?

Eli is in full on whiny mode... save me faint.gif

Oh no it's even better- he has to go to work and HE DOESNT GET PAID. But he is considered essential for military operations so there's no choice. So he can't find other work OR file for unemployment. Because they are the government and they pretty much do whatever they want. So basically right now we know we get no pay for at least 30 days even if a budget is reached tomorrow. After November 1st if everyone is back at work because a budget has been reached we will get regular paychecks in mid-November. But a patch has to be passed by congress before we will get back pay for the unpaid hours they are doing now, and that could take months and months.

Super extra shitty news..

 

Barbara (our dog that just got the csection) just got killed by a car.  She bolted out in front of a guy totally randomly while my mom was outside with her.  She's never run in the road before.  It's complicated because my mom's boyfriend has severe depression and he woke up this morning saying that this dog was the only thing keeping him alive.  It's sad, it's going to suck here tonight even more when he gets home at 8:00.  My mom is traumatized from seeing it and Kevin already wants to kill himself.  Sucks.  Really, really sucks.

Sorry Ash, a lot of the mamas that I met here today are going through the same thing.  :(

post #33 of 2728
Ash, that's awful. I'm so sorry you're going through that.

Abra, oh no. What a sad day.
post #34 of 2728
Oh no Abra!

Today needs to go away and not ever have existed.
post #35 of 2728
OMG, ABRA! =(=(=(

Ash, I am really sorry. I'd 100% help you if I was in any position to, but as you know, I most definitely am not.

I hate the government and money all over again.
post #36 of 2728
Thank you Nicole. We will be fine. I just might have to give hand jobs on a corner or something...which will be hard because I think that's the back up plan of half this town.

And guys, I saw Mal. Her face even. She really does exist!
post #37 of 2728
I'll just start giving hand jobs, too... Then I can help you. =)

OMG!  Abra, I'm so sorry about your dog!!  Keep us posted on how everyone is handling it!

 

Ash, I can't even imagine how uncertain things feel for you guys right now and it just sucks.

 

So many of our group could use some help right now... I wish there was a way we could actually help each other.

 

And I saw Mal, too!

HAHA now that's a friend!

Yeah, jeans tomorrow isn't happening. I literally don't have a fitting pair right now. That was way more depressing than I thought. I can get my 9/10s up, but not even close to buttoning. And of course I have no maternity jeans because I wear scrubs at work, so I didn't even worry about it this pregnancy.

SO I'm wearing maternity khakis tomorrow. I hope they don't say anything about it. FMLLL
