Hi Schatz!! I'm glad you checked in.
GMM, Woohoo!! Glad AF finally arrived!
Shantimama, I would love to live in your neighborhood!
Yikes! That happened to Naomi while we were on vacation. Except that she actually passed out. We had to wait in the sun for the dolphin encounter folks and they were late. She was reading HP and walking around with her nose in the book after having it in the book for the hour drive to this place. So, not only was she dehydrated, but she was probably a little motion sick, too. As soon as they let us into the park and we started walking toward the dolphin pool she said she felt sick and had to sit down. I got her up and walking again (shouldn't have done that) because we had to hurry to get there or she wouldn't have been allowed to participate. But then she just stopped dead in her tracks and said, "I feel dizzy." And the next thing I knew I was lowering her to the ground. Immediately her skin was completely soaked with sweat. She was only out for a few seconds. We gave her some water and some almonds and within a couple minutes she was okay to walk. By the time the dolphin encounter started she looked pretty good. A friend of mine who is a nurse said that once this happens, people are more inclined to have it happen again, so we should make extra sure that she is well-hydrated. So, next time you go out to run, be extra careful, okay? I agree with dr.Jen about making the decision later. You still have time to decide. Heck, you're already past ready for the half!
Bec, ugh about the money. Been there, too. With the "justice is too expensive" deal. Took a few years to get it behind us. I hope it works out okay for you!! Love your new ddddc!
eksmom, good to see you! Fun to know that others are reading HP, too. Naomi got our copy first, as soon as we drove back into town last Friday (we had it pre-ordered from our local bookstore). Fletcher and I are both going to re-read HP6 before we read 7, and Fletcher has 6 right now. I almost can't wait! But, since it's the last book and the frenzy will be over for me for good as soon as I finish it, I suppose there is no harm in prolonging the anticipation a bit longer.
Dr.Jen, sending big vibes to you for tolerance and peace during your visit tomorrow!!
I'm also thinking of you a lot lately. You are doing so amazingly well, considering. Are you having any symptoms?
High: Watching my daughter and 10 of her friends swim and dive in the lake for several hours this evening. She and one of her friends planned a going away party for another friend who is moving. The first half of the party was at the lake and now they are all in my kitchen making root beer floats. She is such a good kid and her friends are such great kids, too! I feel so lucky right now!
Low: Shallow, I know. I'm miserable over the huvacious amount of sour cream and onion chips I consumed at the party. Among other things. Including a root beer float. Ugh. I think (and I know this is ridiculous and impossible) I can see the fat already accumulating on my body! I had a good 6 month period where I felt pretty darned good about my weight. I'm so scared right now.
