How did I get to be the first poster today? And new thread starter?

Not much to say, but thought I'd get us off to start the new month! Sorry for my lack of creative thread title!

ETA: link to old thread

Oooooooo wacky. You must be psychically linked. Or else March is being lionish in both places. Here it's kind of like a soggy, muddy, cold lamb. Pew.

Happy March! Went out for drinkies with some school mates yesterday afternoon (happy hour). It was fun - we went to a restaurant in the tallest building in Portland. It was quite a view. And good food. There are three of us with birthdays this week; crazy.

Operation W is going well. We are down to once a day and often Lily even forgets to ask. But I remind her if it's getting late because a. I get sappy that it's almost over and b. my boobs get a little uncomfortable after 24 hours. Sigh. I really wanted this to happen but now that it's happening I'm a bit sad. Although I do love that I don't have to wake up at 5 am every day and try to fall back asleep while DH and Lily lie there snoring beside me.

Hope everyone has a good day.

S.

i ate breakfast and i just got to work and now all i can think of is eating something else. RAVENOUS.

and spacey. drove all the way to walgreens without the purse this morning. back home. back to walgreens. you get the pregnancy brain picture :

tequila or any kind of cocktail sounds amazingly delicious right now. it shouldn't but it does something sour sounds great. we've been really hooked on the paul newman's virgin limeade lately. why are they virgins???????????????????????????????? isaac calls it lemon juice

that phone thing drives me batty. i have to hide to make phone calls.

we met a doula last night and both liked her. we thought about interviewing 2 and then deciding but i think we'll just go with her. i think she'll be a lot of help. and her personality is very analytical. i'm debating about whether that would be a good thing (or if i want more woo woo?) but i think it is a good fit with our personalities.
post #8 of 313
who'd you interview? if it was kelley burke, i'd say it'll probably be a good fit since like 75% of the people that have interviewed me in the past 2 years and then her ultimately chose her and had a great experience. i have never met her in person, though.

Well, today is officially a better day!!

It isn't Friday yet, but it's practically Friday. Good enough for me.

Hugs on the pregnancy brain. It's sooo hard!

I'm going to go eat while the little man sleeps.

TC- are you going back to doula-ing? I didn't know that. Cool.

oht, reading but not feeling inspired to post this am. all is well at the moment.

peace out
post #11 of 313
Ahhhhhhhh.... what a difference a day makes. Especially when that day includes DH deciding to take today AND tomorrow off to spend time with his mom. *pumping fist in the air* YYYYYYYYES!!!!!!!!!!

I did not do tequila shots yesterday. But that was only because we didn't have any in the house. Okay, I admit it, I was being dramatic. But I DID have a glass of wine at 5:00 and BOY did it make a difference. Freshened me right up for the evening chaos.

Okay, baby freaking out. Must go.

it wasn't kelly but i asked for her because she was highly recommended to me for her massage background. i guess she does massages at a salon a block down for my office...villa villa coola. still might try to get in there for some pampering. (or maybe checking out zenana.) kelly isn't taking clients right now. it was gretchen. are you doula-ing claudia? i assumed you weren't right now with S being small. the massage background with kelly sounded reallllllllllly appealing to me but gretchen said she does massage too.

my parents are coming into town tomorrow night and staying until monday. quality time with the grandparents. it is my dad's bday on saturday. WHAT TO GET THE MAN???? we are baking him a cake on saturday. i'd love to get him a little something though but i am uncreative. stumped.

We nurse once a day at our house (okay, A&A nurse 20x/day, of course). We only do it at bedtime and it has resulted in me not having very satisfying milk - as in "Mama, no milk!#$@#!@#!" and "It's not working today" I feel bittersweet about W too.

Yeah, those fuzzy blue guys have a hard time remembering how to do it. :

Okay, so I remember pre-kids a period when I had a really stressful job. I walked in, and my roommate handed me a drink (gin and tonic?), and I could just FEEL the stress trickling away as the drink trinkled down. And I thought, "Ah. This is how people with @#!!% jobs become alcoholics." :

Maybe they are Vegan Nun Lemons. It's Paul Newman's--are they organic? I assume that puts them one step closer, anyway.

Back to your regularly scheduled afternoon.

dangit. i've been wracking my brain for the perfect present for a friend's daughter and i finally decided a waldorf doll was the perfect thing because they are SO dang cute. and i just figured out how much they cost. whoa. if anyone knows about affordable waldorf dollies...shoot yr info my way pls. of course if i had time to MAKE one.......

whoops. yeah grover can't remember how to do it either. but his mouth is nice and wide open for a good latch

i think they are virgin vegan AND organic limes. and they're probably grown at convents.
post #18 of 313
Jster I think you just take a stick, wrap some fabric around it, and glue some wool as hair.
Remember, in waldorf, less is more. The kids make up the rest with their imaginations.

btw, I waldorf.

Emmalola, all I can hear in my head is the theme song from.......dangit, I can't remember the movie. Oh, its "the twilight zone" I knew it would come to me if I stared at the screen long enough.

Got some long overdue things done at the DMV today, after three previous attempts. : Talk about red tape.

Yay for drinks! MCSB and mm! I'll be partaking tomorrow night out with some gal-pals!

Not much to report, just checking in on my girls! And juice I'm so glad today's better.
post #20 of 313
i've heard great things about gretchen, too. and i'm not doula-ing right now or in the near future. i'll probably wait until next summer(2008) to get back to it because my parents hope to be moved out here by then and i'll have some more reliable last minute childcare options in addition to bill. if you feel like interviewing someone else, i have a couple people in mind for you. let me know.

will write more about my crazy afternoon expedition to trader joe's with tired marek and woken out of a nap stefan later... suffice it to say, we spent more time in the bathroom at TJ's and the bathroom at the library down the way than we did actually shopping and reading books... :
