May '04 Mamas: Welcome to September!

post #1 of 254
Thread Starter 
I can't believe that I'm actually the first one to start this thread...and it's the 2nd of the month! I hope I'm not missing our new thread in a really obvious place....

Anyway, welcome to September! (One of my favorite months...for personal reasons )

Didn't you know that we're moving up to the teenager subforum this month?

I just wanted to report that I didn't blow my master gardener interview (it was Thurs. night... don't think I mentioned it). Classes start in about 3 weeks.

Otherwise, count me as someone who's just subscribing to the thread.

I think it's just a quiet weekend.

I'm feeling groovy me'self...just finished giving a great class to some great women and am feeling the tribal love...girls are behaving....awwwww...

Happy September! It's going to be a good 'un, I think.

We all went to one of the local fairs today and enjoyed a perfect summer day!

KK--awesome!! Can't wait to hear how the classes are!

This being my bday month---I kinda like it too! Oh and a bit of a freakout as that means next month will be the baby's birthday month!

Elsanne--sounds like a great weekend!

.....subbing....

Subbing. Just woke up from a looooooong nap with Jett and I'm sweating like a pig. Gee, could it be because it's 101 degrees? Drip drip drip...

subbing.

I am hot and lazy. Why are the girls still energetic? Or are they?

Interesting fact: pigs don't sweat. That's why they have to roll around in mud (to keep cool). : :

WOW. Time flies. Hey, does that mean you are a Libra? Or a Virgo?

Happy Birthday, Jacquie (tomorrow)!!!!

Groovy weekend, indeed. Glad to hear about Elsanne and Heather's respective groovy days. Hope all ya'll are feelin' groovy.

As for me, DH tore out our deck and started digging out our basement (to fix the foundation). I just puttered around, hung out with Lily, talked endlessly with DH about how we're going to rebuild the deck. It's fun - we get to design a whole new deck now. All using the boards reclaimed from the old one - we're just going to flip 'em over, sand and seal 'em.

Also our friend who's been housesitting for us moved out today. It was bittersweet - she's an awesome friend, and no trouble to have here at all, and Lily loves her, but it's also nice to have our own space again and move our stuff back to where it was.

UM what else. Can't believe Heather is due so soon. Can't believe new babes are here already. Can't believe school starts in 3 weeks! Ack!

Love to all-

Sarah

whyioughta.... (where is the shaking a fist in jest smilie?)

And for the record, this pig jumped in her swimming pool to cool off today. The kids probably would have preferred we roll around in mud, but since I was doing double duty with a the swimming serving as the day's bath, the mud was a no go.

HF, how can you possibly be due next month???? You're a high speed gestator.

Happy Birthday, Jacquie!!! Hope your day is great and fun and whatever else you would like for it to be.

Lots of great progress and good times in our house these days. DH really seems to have heard me during our big talk the other day and I am quite pleased with his efforts. The past two weekends are the best I've had in a long, long time, and all we did was hang around the house, getting stuff done, playing with the kids. Living life!

I'm starting to toss around ideas of what I want to be when I grow up, I mean, go back to work. Probably won't do that for at least another year, but I may have some schooling to do and now is the time to start kicking around ideas. So far I'm seriously considering personal cheffing (weekly cooking meals for people in their homes, they just heat them up like leftovers during the week) or food writing. Food writing sounds fun to me, but I think I might not be fulfilled long term with it. Not exactly saving the world, yk? I dunno... I might have a hang up about not allowing myself to enjoy my work tho, so I'm kinda exploring that roadblock.

I'm gonna go indulge in some Sunday night tv. Or maybe I'll just go take a cool shower and go to bed. It's 9:45 and I'm still sweating like a.... sweaty sweaterson. Please, oh please, can tomorrow be cooler? :

Meg- just noticed your siggie. And I'm glad you're feelin support on the home front.

Sarah- I am so amazed at all you've done to that house. Sounds totally intimidating to me. I am not a fix-it-yourselfer, and neither is dh. Cool idea for redoing the deck.

Els- good luck with the start of travels tomorrow! I'll be thinkin of you and sending you mellow happy child vibes for the car portion of the trip.

I'm nervous/excited about our big yurt trip next weekend, and the 6 (probably 9!) hour drive we have to get there. I went to Goodwill today and got some wiz-bang toys and lift-the-flap type flashy books for the trip. We have a sedan and dh doesn't drive, so he gets the lovely job of entertaining/feeding both kids while twisting his body back from the front seat. Fun for him.: I can't wait to see my friend and her fam, though.

Does anyone know if you can download DVD's you own onto the larger sized ipods? We can't really buy movies online to download because we have dial-up internet and it takes DAYS to download video onto the ipod. Just trying to think of ways to keep the kiddos entertained.

Goodnight, all. Here's hoping for a cooler tomorrow across the country.

: "high speed gestator" , and it's so true. It's always seemed to me that while my own pregnancies last for decades (and I enjoy it, mostly), others' pregnancies fly by.

Wow on tearing out the deck and replacing it. Sounds like fun!

Good thoughts for elsanne's trip.

Meg, for good weekends. May they continue!

Fern, I don't know for sure about the ipod, but I'd imagine you could do it. Just before all of our long drives in the past month, we bought a portable DVD player with two screens, and it really helped with the drive. I held out for a long time because I don't like having the kids 'plugged in', but then I also don't like hours upon hours of incessant whining and complaining... so there you have it.

Super glad for an extra day off today, though the plans are entirely domestic - laundry and the like. But still, glad to have the day.

Sitting here, wondering why I'm not getting notifications about posts, thinking I've killed the thread... oh, yeah, I forgot to subscribe

Hi all, I'm a may 04 mama too I was wondering how many of your kids have potty learned yet? DS isn't interested AT ALL into sitting on the toilet or child potty. He seems to stay dry overnight but still won't pee in the morning in anything but the diaper. Any advice :
post #19 of 254
fleuretlumiere, sorry to hear about ds...I know there are some other boys on this thread with similar issues. Boys seem to potty learn later than girls, and girls are all I got.

Welcome, btw! Never mind my guff, I am always spouting off around here.
