I smell someone trying to boost her post count!

Juicy
- WOWZA!!! I mean, I think it is really funny - only because it wasn't me - but that is totally something I could see myself doing. I have driven right by my house a couple of times recently...I'm surprised the kids didn't say anything, LOL.

Tanya - Did dd ever get some sleep? I hope she is feeling better! No idea about AF...mine is normal in that respect...but...I have never been so blaoted! I don't normally get bloated at all. The past 2 days I haven't been able to stand up straight from it - bizarre! Hope this is a first time thing!

Cori, I loved the digital scrapbook page you made. Your kids are adorable! I remember you talking about this before, but I was not in a place postpartum to consider it. Can you remind me what software you use?

ETA: DD1 passed out FINALLY about 45 minutes ago. She was SO tired. We let her eat ice cream for dinner And she barely ate that . But I can tell she's doing better than yesterday. Here's to a better night's sleep! Now to convince dd2....

It took Logan about a month to get over the cough enough to stop doing breathing treatments every four hours. He's been off the nebulizer for a week now and is breathing great and not coughing anymore. Our ped said Logan could be around kids after the first week, but I kept him away until the cough cleared. I know he wasn't contagious, but I was worried more about what the other kids could give him. All he needed on top of the RSV was an ear infection, respiratory infection, or whatever. I hope she feels better soon

Yeah, I worry about that too. I am pretty nervous about her getting sicker than she is. It is good to know that she probably isn't contagious anymore though.

Today we HAD to go get our pictures taken! Leave it to my little ham to HATE the girl working at Sears and absolutely refuse to smile. I think they are the most serious pictures ever taken of her! She looks happier in the pictures I took when she was sick!!! I think she is just totally unaccustomed to total phonies and was thorougly not amused!!!

I will post them tomorrow!

Speaking of pictures, I got your card Kim! Thank you! Seth and Amelia are so cute and the card is hysterical. It reminds me of when I was a kid and we always left the bathroom door open and whoever was going would have conversations with people who weren't going and stuff. So when I started going to friends houses I would just walk in and start talking to them when they were on the toilet and I didn't understand what they were so freaked out about!

*peeks head out*

I turned 23 the day before DS was born

post #973 of 1217
I turned in August. It was three days after I lost my brother, so I didn't mention it. I kinda wanted to forget it all together. Otherwise, I would have been telling everybody.

Happy Belated birthday, Maria.
I've been thinking of starting an album somewhere and everybody having the password to add new pics whenever. That way there's one place to look at the pics. And those who are less comfortable posting those on the general web can sheare with just our group. What do you guys think? This would be in January of course.

My cousin is here. It's not so bad, but I do feel more on guard. So does dh. My aunt and my cousin are a really annoying combo. We went tonight and hing out at my bro and SIl's house. My sil and the kids are outa town. Normally I have no escape. We made a gingerbread house together. We got a kit from Target with a gift card. Kinda frivolous when you're poor, but Emma asked for it and I wanted to. It was sooo much fun. She kept saying I'm so ascited, I'm so ascited. I'm not sure she actually knows what excited is, but she was right.
Kimya~ I loved the card it was so cutel. That studio pic of Panda cracks me up. Emma is getting like that too. The last time I took her, she said all kinds of silly things, among them she said her shoes were scared of the table, then she finally said she didn't like the lady and didn't want her to take the pics. I did get one good one and that's all I buy anyway. Sometimes I think those photographers try too hard. B ut I'm sure it's a tough gig. I forgot to Pm you when you were passing out CDs and tell you I want one. Any chance I can still get one of those.

All right, I gotta go back to straightening up. I'm looking forward to January, when we can play with all the cool new toys we got-I mean the girls got. And when I can re-connect with you girls. I feel like we're all running around crazy. In January, all our kids will be well and our houses will be tidy-okay maybe just tidier. And there will be no more family in town.
My cousin did come on a one-way ticket and no money. So hopefully he will go back at some point. He lives in California, but is basically homeless, by choice. We're barely making it here, scraping by. And he eats a lot. I'm not sure how we'll keep enough food. My dh said if he stays too long, we'll have to go live in one of those budget suites hotels. I hope he's not serious. I don't see this all ending well unless he just tdecides it's time to go back. WEll, I really gotta go. My teeth have really been hurting. I noticed the other day that my jaw is hurting too and didn't understand why. Then I realized I'm holding my mouth differently to help my teeth not hurt as much. Maybe next month we'll have the money for the dentist. Sorry to complain. I'm goign to go to bed now I think. Good night all.

Just a quickie before naptime to say OLDER OLDER OLDER than most!!
I'll be 37 on Jan 26th - yes, I'm announcing it already!!!

And Joni Mitchell's Blue album is one of my ALL TIME FAVES no thanks to my own mother who used to listen to things like 'tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree' :

Juice - that cracked me up - but you know I've been unable to find my own way to my own bed at night recently?! I know I'm OK, I know I'm in a straight line and then suddenly there's a completely different object in front of me...

Where are you getting your information from?? Whatever...

Sorry to hear about the teeth...toothache is really I feel for you!

The chaos will end.

I did half my Christmas shopping , but it wasn't half as fun as yours, elsanne! No artisans markets here, just a small shopping centre, an ill babe asleep and a ratty dh both in the car with heating full on and me and dd running around like rabbits on speed! There was something like a sense of achievement though (got dh a really silly hat) and then the Christmas tree in the evening -I'm in awe of my dear Christmas tree, amazing what you can do with a few oranges,some cloves, some aluminium foil and cotton wool!! (Not trying to be cool in the frugal dept here or anything, I just really like it!)

I'm not trying to boost my post count here, I'm just too confused to use the multiquote...

We could use the yahoogroup for this. I think it's only open to members?

: : rabbits on speed. That's gonna be me this afternoon, when DH comes home early to stay with the kids while I go try to finish our shopping.

And if the chaos ended, I don't know what I would do with myself!

We had a problem with the Sears picture girl too! I was sitting on the floor playing peek a boo with Logan. (this always gets BIG smiles) She kept taking a stuffed animal and shoving it right in his face. I was getting annoyed and I said, "We don't really shove things in his face." She kept doing it to try to get him to smile. (UH, won't work hon!) He just looks confused in the pictures.
