Ugh, Sarah-Lou, I know that swift-change-of-behavior-once-mama-arrives. WE get that a lot here.

Hang in there, and try to feed and nourish the relationship as much as you can. It's a hard time for all.

i'm awaiting a landscaper. yay! i hope he can help with our current state of disarray. i'm also awaiting the windstorm.

that sucks sarah it's hard. when will you be graduating?

i'm kind of surprised it is loud in L&D because i thought it was surprisingly quiet in the room when i stayed there. like i would expect to hear a lot of screaming and/or commotion but i didn't hear much of anything. are they expecting you to sleep in some area where you can hear everyone in the halls?


ebin mr. so far easy baby is getting harder to put down at night. and waking more. he just doesn't succumb to the newborn sleepies like he used to dangit :

kk - you *are* lucky you're 2 people looking for one job. stressful but manageable!


i haven't done a whole lot of work this month. i *could* be doing some today. (i should). but i need to work on halloween costumes after the landscaper visit.

Where's that baby????

EL, I think you're in a race with Heath for "dealing with the most ornery relations" prize. (Winning this category is no prize...)

TC, just be glad that whatever potential damage it is, it's to a BABY tooth. (Small consolation, but still...)

Wave to Jacquie, Sherri! (Lurkers: I know you're out there.)

MCSB: I think you're getting "punished", and I'm sorry. Are you going to be *done* after this year? I know this isn't much consolation (my skill today), but it seems like kids this age are way more adaptable than older kids. Translation: Lily may not like your busyness now, but it could be worse later! :

(I'll 2nd that it was super quiet in L&D--also PP for me.)

Ug--the dh of my friend, the guy who got the ax... he got zero severance. *Nice.* : Looking a lot more rosy around here after I heard that. Still haven't heard from the firm, and of course I'm antsy when the phone rings, when the mail comes, etc. Sent inquiry about teaching microbiology again come spring. Dh and I are really talking about all the options, all the flexibility, incl. each of us working part-time (the biggest benefit to me teaching is being able to buy into to group-rate benefits). Part of me is really freaked out, but we're very stable, so it could be a good transition to better things.

Baby is staying put for the foreseeable future it seems!

jstar, I was at OHSU L&D yesterday. Very loud.

Thanks for the words of wisdom, everyone. KK, DH and my mom both keep telling me the same thing - that it is hard now, but it is better now than when she's 6-12 or whatever. I hear that, but it doesn't make it easier for *me* right now. I graduate in June, and hopefully then my schedule will be more sane. Depending on what type of job I get, it may be a 9-5, or may be a typical mw schedule with a couple of clinic days and either 1 or 2 24-hr call shifts a week. Some practices do 12-hr shifts, too, so that would mean more days but no 24-hour chunks.

Hoping for easy quick baby vibes, HF!

You love me, you really REALLY love me. ::

Not much going on here. Katie's class took a field trip to the apple orchard today. We rode on a hayride. I can't remember the last time I rode on a hayride! We had a great time, and bought lots more apples, even though we have a bag already in our fridge. My dh makes the best applesauce, so I think I might have him make some this weekend. We've already made apple crisp a few times this year, but I love it so much we'll probably make more.

It's my good TV watchin' night. Grey's Anatomy, ER. I'll turn into a vegetable!

Boy, do I really have nothing better to say, I'm talking about my TV night? I'll make you sorry you ever pulled me out of lurkdom, KK!
post #148 of 317
Sherri---have him make a nice chunky applesauce and I'll send you my yummo muffin recipe! And then send some here!

Off to watch the red sox and hope for the best!

claudia--we so totally need beach house pics one of these days!

Me too! I have a feeling Juice is not rooting for the same team as us though! :

What's this about the muffin recipe? Will I be privy to its secretive yummy goodness?

Awww! Thank you! I'm here! Lurking every couple days and too exhausted to really type anything back. I might get some sanity back over the weekend (All my papers get turned in tomorrow..) so I'll try to pop in and say a real hello then.

Bees and crabby siblings and money troubles... : I wish they'd go away for everyone. Until then- HUGS for all the MMF and even I'm getting stalky Heather. I feel deprived of my MMF and I find myself randomly sitting in biology thinking "I wonder if Heather is in labor right NOW." Ahh I'm too sad. :

I you all anyway

I had a bunch of other things to say, but they evaporated as I relived last night's loss.

But we all know that the Rockies are going to win the World Series. I'm just rooting for the ALCS to go to 7, so the opposing team is tuckered out and the Rox are well-rested. Is that tomato a strike?)
post #154 of 317
Checking into to say I have NO idea about anything sports related. And I love love love the fact that John doens't give a crap about it either. :

Have you guys seen this? Soooooooo cute and sweet and funny. I especially love how the daughter creeps into the frame at the end. Totally appropriate.

We've all be sick here all week. :Puke Lurrrrrrrrvly. I am finally feeling pretty good today, but it's been a long week.

Due to said sickness, I read all the posts this week, but honestly, they didn't really stick in my foggy brain. Forgive me.

I do know that HF has not had the new babe yet, so I guess I'm not that out of touch. FWIW Heather, I'm thinking..... the 26th. Mark your calendar.

Did I mention both Mia and Jett are going to be tigers for Halloween. OH THE CUTENESS!

We are actually going to an adult Halloween party on the 27th. I guess that means we should dress up, but neither John or I are that into dressing up. Any easy, cheap costume ideas? :

Gotta hop in the shower.
post #155 of 317
Checking in.... Made DH stay home this morning, but then a whole lot of nothing interesting so he's at work now. Went to the chiro this morning which was lovely and proud of myself for not smacking the old lady who had the nerve to say "Are you looking forward to twins?" :


Go Sox! (but yes KK...those darn Rockies are playing far too well!)

doug was rooting for cleveland.

i'm crazy because i booked him a flight to amsterdam last night. it was free (the miles i was going to use for colorado but it's a blackout time for free flights). i think i did it because i *wish* i could go somewhere unencumbered and i know i wont; be able to for at least 2 years. he is so freakin excited. he couldn't really believe i did it he'll be going with our friend who used to live there so he'll probably only have a couple of nights in a hotel if their dates don't overlap exactly. i'm so nice!! now i need my mom to come up that week

i need to go brush this huge dreadlock out of my hair and take a shower.

:
though I grew up an AL fan (my brother is way into sports). I'm not a huge sports person, but I do enjoy jumping on the bandwagon for championships and such!

jstar-I wanted to second your hair loss woes. I'm losing gobs of hair every time I shower...I seem to be losing it earlier than with G. I've got loads of hair to begin with, so I'm at no risk for going bald. But, it's annoying. I'm finding my hairs all over the place!

Halloween: G is going as a fireman (if I can borrow the outfit from our neighbor, that is). I wish I could sew something cute like many of you have talked about...just isn't one of my skill sets!

heather: thinking of you and those last days. I just hope you're keeping comfy!

meg: sorry you've all been sickly. That's no fun.

okay, A is now fed, so I better get into the shower while I can. We have to hit the grocery store today...not much food in the house.

I have to agree, the Rockies are on a big roll, it's going to be tough for anyone to stop them. I'm still pulling for a Rox-Sox Series. : In order for that to happen, Boston needs to light a fire under the arses of the bottom of the batting order. Seems the same ones are keeping them alive in the middle.

Meg, so sorry to hear about the sickies. That truly is a big fear for me, the whole fam coming down with that. Glad to hear you are all on the mend, though.

Heath, hope you are staying quasi-comfy while you wait on the twins, er, I mean baby. :

You da'bomb Jess for booking your hubby a trip like that. Wanna marry me? : Is the trip coming up soon, or somewhat far off?
post #159 of 317
he's going in january. that way if we can swing CO in march there will be a decent break between the 2 trips. i *really* want to go to CO but it will be totally last minute if we have the fundage to do it. i should give it up but i have an overdeveloped sense of entitlement (aka spoiled) so i'm having a hard time giving up the idea i'm really into the idea of spending hardly anything on christmas this year though.

jacquie. unlike you i AM half bald to begin with. you're lucky you have hair to spare
post #160 of 317
i am sooooooooooo not into baseball. thank g*ddess i don't live in new york anymore, and thank beelzebub i'm not dating that crazy mad yankee fan i dated in high school... yeesh...

jess: i miss you. wanna come play? or can we come play at your house? oh wait, you're still going to try for halloween fun next weekend, right?

fiddle-y: i miss you, too.
