I'm hypoglycemic as well. Both parents have full-on diabetes, though, so not surprised.

Thanks, I think I'm 8 or 9 weeks but according to the hospital'c magic circle I'm more like 13 weeks...I have wierd cycles so will probably end up doing a dating ultrasound.

oh, and I have problems with hypoglycemia too. I've learned by experience the best way to eat for me (often and with lots of protien, I generally avoid all carb "meals" like cereal, etc).

What!? Why on earth did she have it sent to your house, ohhhh, to surprise her husband?

Geesh, I am sorry.

Hey, talking about creative stuff, I've actually organized and called a group of moms and reserved the room for ceramics painting for kids to make Christmas stuff for grandparents!

I had fun with a friend painting this week, and decided to see if I could get enough people to reserve the room/have the party, and I do!

My dream is to have a set of dishes I'm painted. But I should start saving!

LOTR wall calendar! Oh, and I have the organizer with entire months blank, too. Lost it, whatever. I hear all th time, 'well you should write it down' how do you explain that that doesn't help?

Let me know how that ceramics party comes out! My dream is to paint a Nativity set. . . It'd probably happen faster if I knit one. . . :

Knitting would probably be easier than ceramics with kids running around!

Heidi, isn't there a pottery place in downtown Lancaster?

*mad Google skills*

There we go! The Pottery Works. I sense a girl's night out............

I hate february.

A bead shop and Pottery, cool! Hehe, they have a couple's night. You don't see many guys in these places.

I do beading too, that would be fun, but not possible with kids at all.

For a while DD was happy with play plastic necklaces this summer while my mom was here. But DH ended up taking her and playing with her. She loves grabbing everything, of course.

having just experienced colored sanding sugar for the first time, I'm sure Henry would eat the tiny beads. . . : well, he'd eat them once, anyway.

I'm going to try to get some stuff done today. . .here's my list.

Vacuum dining room
make bread
wash diapers and covers
unload and reload dishwasher
call and get a haircut appointment
schedule appointment for pictures


both the boys slept in this morning, but I couldn't get moving. Man I wish I was like some people who bounce out of bed in the morning full of energy.

oh yeah, and that's on top of all the regular stuff likemaking lunch and cleaning up after ourselves, and changing diapers, and pottying Henry, and cleaning up accidents, and lurking on MDC, and. . .

I woke up at 9, nursed DD and got up because a friend was coming over and had called and left a message. I have no energy and no motivation. But if someone comes to visit and talks to me, I get stuff done. So, my table is partially cleared and the toys are picked up.

I should:
unload the dishwasher
reload " "
run at least one load of laundry
pick up one of the piles in my bedroom (DH is a little worried the apt will be a mess when we have the baby.)
sometime clean off the bathroom counter
blah blah blah

They must be.

I did unload and reload the dishwasher.
The diapers are on their second wash cycle.
I made dinner.
made an appointment for a haircut.

I can still make bread I think.
DH can maybe vacuum for me.

But he wrecked the car tonight on the way home, so he has to go with the tow truck. . . not sure when he'll be back.
post #415 of 582
Oh no, is he okay? What about your car? Eek, that's scary. Someone ran into us at stoplight, going just too fast for the roads, we've got snow. no damage, but scred the bejeebers out of me. Didn't even scare Elisabeth.
post #416 of 582
EEk, Heidi! That's scary. I hope everything's ok. I was thinking of you today, and how you guys should come over for candlelighting during Chanukah. Problem is - it starts the week of Christmas, so I'm not sure what your plans are.

I got depakote today ladies. Turns out my ADD/HD may actually be my bipolar II - apparently it has some of the same traits.

They told me even if I was add/hd I couldnt ever medicate for it becauses it would put me in a manic state.

Hopefully medicating my bipolar will give me the skills to enact the Feingold Diet, which I have wanted to do for YEARS but lacked the planning skills to do so.

Anyone done Feingold successfully? (Have I already asked that?
