Ditto.

Ebay is about it lately. Sometimes when I need to zone out, I head for Yahoo Games.



Is it wrong to want to duct tape my kids' mouths shut tonight?

J/K. :

What method of b/c (if any) will you use postpartum?

Awww, I'm feeling the love tonight, and I need it thanks :
YAHOO GAMES!!! What's your favorite? I like collapse I haven't played in a long time and it will be a long time before I can again

It is only moderately wrong to duct tape the kids' mouths. Just use masking tape under it and it will be OK.

I'm thinking I want to go a few months with no B/C other than nursing, but I do want to get an IUD. I think the mirena. Whenever the baby starts sleeping longer bouts or if the baby is a pacifier kid then I'll do it sooner rather than later.
I'm not sure if I want a third kid. I'm feeling overwhelmed right now.
ANYway.


If you could get a $50 gift card to anywhere, where would it be?

Well it was almost 17 years ago...hopefully they no longer exist.

My doctor is in Crown Hill which is part of Seattle and I had to run to Ballard to our pharmacy afterwards today. I love Ballard and would live there in a minute but it is so $$$$. Anyway, I swear I could smell this restaurant Ray's Boathouse. It smelled so good. Its really $$$ but they do have a cafe for us folks with a medium income. So right now I would go there and not take anyone with me and ben and jerry's afterwards..so can I have two gift certificates?


What baby item could you not live without?

I usually head for Jewel Quest - it's sooooo mindless, but addictive. I do like Collapse though too.

I had the Mirena after the last one and it was horrible - the only time I have ever taken meds for depression, which sucked, so I pulled the Mirena and felt much better. HOWEVER, I have friends who love it (and friends who hate it as much as I do too). It is apparently true though what they say - fertility returns quickly after having it removed .

: Homesick!! My family lives in WWa and we don't make it up there very often. Can I have a gift certificate for plane tickets?

With some of them - tummy drops!! Shoot, I can't think of anything else - I keep thinking of stuff, but then think of ways to work around not having it - like a bouncy seat is nice so you can set them outside the shower, but I've also used the infant carseat for that.


What baby item do you really, really want but haven't gotten yet? (For me, I'm torn between a Moby wrap - just used my own cloth last time, but the Moby wrap seems more friendly - and one of those Sit-n-Stand strollers so that the 2yo can hop on - or NOT.)

: that the mirena doesn't cause problems :

I want a swing. I should just borrow my friends, but I don't know why I'm hung up on wanting my own it's silly.
I do want a moby wrap too. I reallllllllly want dressers, but I don't know if it counts as a "baby item". Those sit and stand strollers are super cool.

What is the last intellectual activity that you did?

I loved my mirena. The only problem I had was I was one of the first people to get it at the clinic I was going too. All the drs there had them too (all female) anyway, when it came time to remove it, they had cut the strings to small. They knew it was going to be a problem because it had happen to a few of them (the drs). Anyway, you know I have never given natural birth before and my uterus was tipped. It took about 45 minutes to remove it and I had some select words to say during the process. Of course in the whole of things those 45 minutes was little to pay for what I got from it.

Hmm helping my 9 year old with his multiplication?

Oh I know, I do all my parents paperwork as most of it makes no sense with regard to medicare etc. So I get the lovely task of going over everything and figuring out why things got paid or not paid etc.

what are your plans for this weekend?

I loved most of it - few periods is nice, not having to worry about it is great -but the depression and weight gain was horrible. I have problems with the pill too. My strings definitely weren't a problem - in fact, I wonder if they'd had problems with too short ones because mine were really long - hubby could feel them sometimes and it was really easy to pull out (myself). Oh it hurt going in though!! Holy canoli.

Ugh, I used to have to deal with MILs Tricare blech.


Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. Lounging if possible. Yoga. Refinishing the crib. More lounging.


What is your favorite "maternity" product?
post #93 of 166
heh, my plans for the weekend involve packing and cleaning, and probably a lot of hanging out on the porch with the kids if it's sunny out, then having to languish on the couch with a popsicle afterwards cause it's so HOT already!

birth control? bleahhh--I will probably just do my usual: paying attn to my body along with barrier methods until af gets back to normal--i think it took only 4-5 months last time, and I was 100% breastfeeding, no paci's, co-sleeping, the whole shebang maybe I'm fertile. we want another (another few?), just not ASAP! and i am sooo not comfy with medical bc.

i still don't have a baby swing, and I am debating with myself over whether or not i should care about that. Ian LOVED his swing, so i assumed it was essential for Lili too, but she wasn't as crazy abt it. my one essential baby item--if i truly could not have anything else but diapers, a carseat, and ONE other thing--is a sling. I had my Taylor-made batik-tie dye ring sling picked out in the middle of the first trimester! essential maternity item? ummmm vitamins?? : NO... flaxseed!! :

i am not sure but i THINK they sell these thingies that clip onto a reg. stroller and make it a sit-n-stand one..... www.onestepahead.com maybe?

hmm.......so what is your biggest thing that needs to be taken care of before this baby makes his/her debut???? :

I am really trying to get our house whipped into shape. I have been decluttering. I still have to finish up my bedroom. I have like maybe an hour of work to do. I also need to do the file cabinet and the linen closet.

what will you miss about being pregnant?

: Having a human within me I can't imagine this to be my last pregnancy. . .yet I'm not sure I see room for another in my future


OK this question is kinda odd, and it's a multi-parter. I have an assignment that's due on Monday and this will serve as the "interview" I have to do for it--if that's OK.
I have to "interview" someone who is a different religion than me. I'm agnostic-- so pretty much anyone will do.
I hope this isn't a thread killer. . .if you're really uncomfortable move on as if I forgot to ask a question (and someone PM me please

Ok:
describe you religious or spiritual practice in terms of: language; gender role and gender stratification; marriage/family expectations/obligations/rules; Sacred texts used; Taboos (such as for food or dress); Rituals (how often do they meet; how do they bury their dead; how do they celebrate birth); Major tenants; or the Initiation process (how do you become a member) for example. . .

Is that too much?
I shouldn't have waited until the last minute:
post #96 of 166
oooh, what kind of class is that for???? : I love hearing about religions!
post #97 of 166
: I love hearing about religions too. I'm also agnostic so I can't really answer your questions... we don't do much (any!) religious stuff around here. DH is a Christian but he doesn't believe in going to church.

It's for Cultural Anthropology.
I'm thinking it's a bit much for a fluff thread .
I'm going to go over to the Religious studies forum and ask.


FOR the new question:

Do you have a favorite movie of all time? What is it?

Dave.

Why are there so many songs about rainbows and what's on the other side? (Do I make myself old by saying that? It seems like most moms around MDC ARE old enough to know the reference, but on other boards I'd be ancient and greeted with blank stares.)

Real question:

Are you where you'd thought you'd be and/or doing what you thought you would be when you made plans for what you'd do when you "grew up"?

Hellz naw. I thought I'd graduate high school, tour more with Phish and SCI, move to Philly, go to art school to become an art teacher...live there happily ever after...and THEN have kids. This is as far as I can get from that, but that's ok. I am really happy.

What could you spend tons of money on and not even blink an eye(preferably not baby things, but if that's your vice, you for it)?
