Weekly Thread April 23rd - Page 8

post #141 of 156
Ds2 had another low blood sugar attack at school yesterday. Once he ate, he was fine. Ugh.
I need to go to the grocery store so badly it isn't even funny. That has been my plan all week to get up and go bright and early. Wouldn't ya know, one of dh's guys broke his truck or something, so he had to pick him and the parts up. Who knows what time he'll get back from that. There is no way that I am taking all of the kids when I am hormonal anyway! I'm ready to bang their heads together now- I can't imagine taking them in public this morning!

Where in the hell is my sunshine? It's dreary and supposed to be rainy here today.

Beautiful and sunny here! Supposed to be all weekend after a week of rain I'm excited, I just wish I had more energy to do "stuff". I'd invite everyone over (we live next to the beach ) and we could all enjoy the sunshine together just so long as no one judges my housekeeping skills as of late.

I'm pretty pissed at my dh right now.. last night he was a total ass, I asked him to massage my back because hello.. I'm huge and my back is killing me. He acted like I asked him to give me the moon and stars. After a 3 second (no joke) half ass rub he goes back to whatever was so interesting on the internet. He spends all of his time in our bedroom on his damn laptop. So anyway, I stomp out of there after sitting next to him (im)patiently because I'm angry and hurt and sick of being ignored. The jerk doesn't even get up to see why I left.. a few hours later I see that he's sleeping and I was getting tired so I go to get into bed (jerk has all my pillows), pull 2 pillows out from under him and he opens his eyes and moves toward the center of the bed. : Aidan wasn't sleeping in our bed last night so I was hoping to stretch out a bit, ya know? I say are you going to move over so I can get into bed? He moves over more on my side... now I'm like livid so I just snatch my blanket and pillows and slept on the couch WITH Aidan. wtf? At 7 something this morning he wakes me up and asks (innocently) why are you sleeping on the couch, yeah buddy because your ass wouldn't move. RAWR

Oh Nic, that sounds crummy of your DH!

I have a headache today. Guess I'd better pull out the Neti Pot. I'm cranky too, unbelievably so, and DH is at work this weekend for some special stuff they have to do, which upsets the balance of everything. He usually takes the 3 yr old to Tap Dancing class on Saturdays, since it's at 9am in the morning, but I tried this morning and the kid just threw a tantrum. I don;t have patience for it, and told him ok, we won't go then, which put him further into tantrumland. We ended up not going just because time ran out.

Ohhh my head!

Panthira I hope your day gets a bit better. I have yet to use the neti pot this morning I need it.. just a bit of congestion leftover from this cold!

tantrumland is SO not my fave place to be, so sorry mama

woke up with a splitting headache thats coming from my neck. OWWWWWW.

i had a similar incident with my DH last night. i asked him to rub my feet a bit as the tops were getting a tiny swollen, and they had been aching a tiny bit. so he puts a foot in his hands and squeezes it softly like 3 times then does the next one... uh DUDE thats so NOT rubbing my feet!!!!! grumble.
sorry your DH was being a UAV last night Nic.

Miss J should be here any second. i dont want to move today. let alone take care of an almost three year old and an almost two and a half year old.
i want to nap. and cry. and make my headache go away.
and i cant take my medicine cause it impares my ability to take care of the girls.
maybe my mom will come over and give me some help.

How obnoxious! My DH isn't much for getting off the 'net & doing any rubs either : , but at least he gives me plenty of bed space - if he tried hogging it, I think I'd do what one of my preg. bitches did to me when I was sleeping on the couch next to the whelping box, & she was due anytime - just climb over & lay on him! (Since I weigh considerably more than the 130 my preg. dog did, he'd have to move I think he knows this....)

We're having hot sunny weather here - wish I could send some of it to you in cooler places!

Oh Nic I sure wish I lived closer to you! I'd love to be at the beach! I wouldn't care what your house looked like either yours can not be worse than mine right now.... too busy outside to care about the inside!
How come dh's can be so loving some days and such a$$'s the next? Dh snores so loudly some nights extra loud on nights when he has a beer or two while watching the hockey game... I'm like dude you could try some to be compassionate...a) I can't have a beer with you and b) you snore so damn loudly and keep me up half the night!

I love my long skirts for this reason.. nothing to bind me in at all, total freedom! I wish I had a few more and some tanks to go with them. I'm waiting on a care package from a friend in Nevada. She said she had tons of stuff for me in there including a car seat!

We just got back from the ren. fest, and we had a lovely day. Ok, so it was a little hot! I had one person say that I should have the baby any minute, 3 ladies were in shock that I am 29 weeks because I was SO tiny, one guy (who worked there...and this was kind of his job) teased dh and myself with I know what you have been doing, and one guy said I had magic in me. All in all it was a fun day despite Benji being crazy napless. He was also more energetic than usual. He got a huge bruise on his chin from falling straight on it, bruised up his knees, arms, and elbows, and was covered from head to toe in dirt. It kind of reminded me that I have been keeping him from being a boy lately. We have been playing inside a lot lately. I am a bad mommy for that! Dh just stepped out of the shower so it is time for me to step in.... It is kind of sad, but we really don't fit in there together any more!

*gasp*

January 08 has a ddc now.

It truly feels like time is flying but standing still all at the same time.


DH made up for his asshattery yesterday by being sweet today. I finally got him to help me in my "trimming" endeavor. I felt so "overgrown" recently and was unable to do anything about it.. not for lack of trying either I just couldn't see what the hell I was trimming at and was terrified of cutting a labia or other very important parts. TMI but I feel so much cleaner in that vicinity now!

I started sewing up some cloth wipes. I had an old flannel receiving blanket and a couple of flannel pillowcases that seldom get used (too hot!) so I cut them up and they actually look really nice. It felt good to sew and it wasn't complicated, I tend to get frustrated pretty easily lately. I'm wondering if I can't make some mama cloth in a similar fashion.. just need to figure out some absorbency issues.

Way to go Nic! I have to say that I was a little lost when I saw the 2008 ddc! We got moved up another row, and it was also a little disturbing.... Ok, so that is not really the word, but now it is getting more and more obvious that we will all have to get these babies out of us. I really need to start my Hypbirth cds quickly!!!!!!

Yes I saw that too.. I was a bit perplexed at first. There was a thread in the ddc main forum about it.. seems we weren't the only ones that felt twitchy about it.

Hey Nic....the mama cloth I have is really just a prefold diaper cut to size, then sandwiched between two layers of printed fabric with wings to snap underneath your panties. They have an opening for stuffing it with a folded doubler that you could also easily make - check out how they look online at different sites and I bet you can easily figure it out.

All I"ve ever made is some cloth napkins out of a huge flannel sheet - just zigzagged the edges and I didn't even bother pinning them. I really don't sew well at all!
