You don't wanna know. But no, SeaMonkey's still a SeaMonkey.

Still in the same place, only slightly more urgently now. No idea where we're going, but the lease is up on 31 Jan. : I'm trying not to think about it...

Hello Sisterfriends,

Sorry it's been so long since I have posted here.
I have been a bit under the weather and I have kept my online "habit" down to the bare minimum.
But I am on the mend so hopefully I will be able to post here more often.
It is so nice to see some new members join us here as well as the return of some members that I hadn't seen around MDC forums that I frequent in a while.
Thanks to all that kept this thread going.
Unfortunately, I have my son calling me to give him a hand right now, so I will have to come back later to finish my thoughts.

Take Care,
Erika (I don't wear a fro, I'm just a sister who likes this smilie!):

hey mamas of color, glad i found you

We are an african american family. we are older parents, professionals, politically liberal and socially conservative. our biggest challenge is staying afrocentric in our white rural community and raising kids with positive self-esteems.

anyway, i went to barnes and noble two days ago while my husband was "in town" on business and bot myself a mothering magazine as a treat. of course, i have read it cover to cover. i had forgotten all about this message board...i am not sure i would have know what to do, if even i knew about it previously. i havent seen the magazine in years. i was pregnant when we moved to colorado from new mexico and overwhelmed with life--had no time for magazines. anyway. i have two kiddos age 2 ds and 6 months dd, we breastfeed, cloth diaper part time, we are more AP than our parents, but not as much as alot of others. we plan to home school. i just started using mama cloth. i am addicted to diaperswappers.com

(sigh) sorry to be so wordy.

I've just had the craziest two weeks... but i think we're on the mend now. I *think*. : It's a very long story, though, and i'm only posting it once... so it's going in the blog. Hope all is well with you ladies!

Rhynna - amazing!

Random thought/question that ran through my mind tonight - how is your hair done, tonight?

Mine is up airdrying in five fat braids after a rather strenous washing & combing session.

My hair's just in a ponytail. I'm about to take it out so that I can sleep half-way sitting up, in a position that's slightly less uncomfortable than the others.

Hey Rynna, I have been keeping up with you via your blog. Big hugs to you mama and congratulations on your new baby boy! I hope life is a little easier on you

technical questions

okay i need some help, can you tell me is there something i should be doing so i dont have to scroll down each and every time to view this thread. is there a way for the most recent posting to be first? i am not very tech savy, so keep your instructions basic...thanks. ajv

my hair is all over my head, i go to denver next month and will have my cousin (who is a beautician) cut it short--much like the old halle berry, but at 300 pounds...

Rynna,

Your birth story was like reading an adventure novel. Whoa!!! I am soooo happy you are doing much better. Keep well girl.

Yesterday I held my ChunkityButt niece for a while, and she was pulling my hair, making noises at it. Of course this made me laugh, because my sister wears her hair very short, a la Halle Berry of old these days. Chunkity was just fascinated by my hair because i've got a heck of a lot more of it than her mother.

Bear is so sweet! I'm smitten with him. I'm planning a slow day today... meaning I'm not getting out of bed for anything more interesting than the toilet. Wish me luck.

I've been MIA for quite awhile but I'm so glad that I found you all!

For those of you who don't know me I live in a suburb of Atlanta and am mom to a daughter who will be 5 on Sat and 3.5 year old boy. We were seriously contemplating a move to FL but have decided to stay here but hopefully will move into a bigger house in our neighborhood.

We were traveling a lot the past 6 months, first b/c of the possible relocation and then b/c the kids weren't in pre school. Now that we are settled it's time to think about a third baby, in preparation I've lost about 35 lbs. I've gotten pregnant heavier than I am now but would really like to loose some more weight before conceiving again. My husband is on board and since he was my eating buddy that has made a world of difference. Of course I'm mad b/c we're doing the same thing and he's lost more

Congratulations to all the new babies. Eilonwy, I'd still like 4 kiddos so I'll have to read your blog so see how you are faring. And oyinmama, I'm another thrilled customer. Geographically, we've been all over the place and my hair looks like it. Now that we're home it's time for me to order some more of your fantastic products. And that's not empty flattery , I'm 99% I raved about your goods here when I first found them. Am glad that you found us!

I hope you all write and let us know how you and your families are doing,

Take Care

Kia

My little Bear

Life is completely and totally insane. I'm horribly depressed and things are very very complicated. I suppose it's mostly my fault, I've always had a tendancy to complicate things. I don't even know what else to say... things are pretty damned screwy. The baby is cute, though. They're all cute, actually, but the baby is warm and snuggly and delicious.
