I am glad you like the stuff! The day I mailed the package you mentioned getting the Pooh movie from the library! So I knew it was okay that I sent videos!
Yeah, he LOVES Pooh!!! And, since there is no violence in the Pooh movies, I let him watch them. So, thank you!

Oh, and I love the card too, so impressed that you drew that!

I am proud of you for saying something to your Mom. It is so hard to do sometimes.

Speaking of Moms...mine is in town. She stays about 30 minutes from us when she's here. She stays up by my other siblings (fine with me!). She is trying to manipulate me into coming up for Christmas Eve AND Christmas Day. How is she doing this?? By the offer of food. She told me yesterday that she bought some yummy desserts for Christmas Day, now she is telling me that they're from Christmas eve and if I want some I better come up on that day. Oh well. I don't need them and I am not making those trips.
Ok, I hear Amelia in my room squealing on the bed. She is nutty!

i had surgery. i had an infection that wasn't going away, it was at risk of becoming a blood infection (requiring iv abx and a hospital stay) and that was the only day i could get in. kind of sucky. we had a great family dinner that night, which was wonderful, although i was in a fair bit of pain. i'm feeling much better today.

oh, and i'm 31.

We collect ornaments from places we visit, too. I have one that was handmade by a local artist in the Bahamas that we got from our honeymoon. I have one from Greune, TX, another from Carlsbad Caverns, and a shell from Melbourne, FL, that I made into an ornament since I couldn't find any for sale. I also have some handmade ornaments from Albuquerque. One is a hot air balloon. If we go on vacation somewhere I try to pick one up. It's fun to remember the places we all went together that way.

It's not that it's too heavy. I think my regular AF is heavier. It's just really, really dark brown with a slight reddish tint. It's so dark it's almost black. I know, I know...TMI? I think I'm going to call my midwife.

See, my DH just doesn't get the coolness of ornaments. I'd LOVE to pick up something from here and there, and he just thinks it's silly. You know what I'd really love? Chili-shaped christmas lights. I know they have them somewhere. But I wouldn't want them all red, I'd want multicolored so I could hang them on the tree.

You know, it occurs to me that I never went in for my 6-week postpartum visit. : Probably no point now, huh?

DD won't take a nap. She cannot be reasoned with either. She doesn't understand that she will feel so much better if she sleeps. She is eating a yogurt right now. All she's eaten today is a small bit of applesauce, and a little bit of yogurt. You know those squeeze yogurts kids love with all the nasty ingredients? Horizon makes an organic version that I bought for my kids (ds has been begging for some). So she's squeezing the yogurt into her mouth. And on the floor.

I wanted to send cards to everyone, too. I was secretly thankful to have a minimum requirement to participate. Sometimes I wonder what happened to me. I used to be such an over-achiever. Oh, yeah. I remember now. I had kids.

You see how flaky this has made me? I was closing windows and found this half finished post after I just sent my other post from a different window. I'm slowly losing my mind.

this year DH had to ask me, "Am I 32 now or am I turning 32 in November?" We are now both 32.

And as to losing one's mind - you all know how I recently drove around without buckling my DS in. Well, I've topped it. Monday night (it's taken me three days to get up the courage to admit this) - keep in mind Monday is my hardest, longest day and I rarely get home before 7pm - I tried to go home to SOMEONE ELSE'S HOUSE. I turned on the street before mine, thinking it was mine, then was turning into "my" driveway, wondering why there were no lights on at all, and when did the neighbors get those crazy bright Christmas lights? How did I not notice them? As I'm pulling into the driveway I see the FOR SALE sign. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that's what it took for me to realize this was not my home. My home is not for sale! I've only lived here three years. You'd think I could find my way home after work.

post #953 of 1217
Elsanne, you're so ancient. I think my mom liked Joni Mitchell : But I do know who she is. :nana:

I wish this sick little girl would go to sleep. I'm running out of mommy adrenaline.

OT - Tanya needs a senior member title.
post #955 of 1217


I've been thinking the same thing. Any ideas? Must have something clever to offset my practical username.

ETA: I've noticed plenty of us seen-yer members without titles.....

Claire beats me! Old lady! nyah nyah! :nana:

I needs me a senior member title too. Hard to think of just the right one.

And, Tanya, my mom is the one who liked joni mitchell, ohkaaaay? I just happened to have been around while she listened to it. It was her "clean the house" music. p.s. sorryyyyy about that sick little girl. "mommy adrenaline"...truly I understand that now.

Do NOT even tell me that I'm the oldest one here!!!: I turned 35 in June! If I ever get the "senior" put in my title, it will be quite appropriate.
post #960 of 1217
Since I know I'll never get around to it with the disastrous house and sickies galore, I uploaded my Christmas card for those who want to gush. I made it myself - my newest hobby if I ever get the chance again - is digital scrapbooking.....
