post #21 of 938
hey y'all....

it was windy and cool today but we went to the ZOO like crazy people since dd was off school, and it was GREAT! Atl people are just way not into bad weather, and so we had it all to ourselves. that baby panda just kills ya, she is so cute! and our "bad weather" was 10 MPH winds and about 45 degrees. balmy, I know.

I am running semi-long tomorrow (maybe with HBM?) and will lift up Wendy and her sweet family. :

Another vote for RI here! My brother and his wife live in Providence with their three boys and it's always so interesting and fun to visit them. I love that they can walk almost everywhere from their house in town. Very cool! And Plady, my DH has the same anti-New England chip. Darn....

It is positively awful outside today. The entire road/sidewalk/etc. is coated with an inch thing swath of ice. I saw at least 4 kids go down on the walk home from the bus stop with DS. Yuck. Won't be any outdoor running here today.

Happy Birthday, Kerc!!!!!! Hope it is a great one


I have been up to my eyeballs researching dipes for newborns. So much has changed since I CD'd K-so many more choices and I didn't CD her until she was 9 months, so I never looked at the itty bitty stuff
post #24 of 938
i can't believe that I can post on this thread!!!

I started Couch potato to 5 K last week. I'm on Week 2 day 3 tomorrow!!!

My goal is to run a 5k this summer and then a 10k on thanksgiving day!

Ooh, what are you leaning towards? I am weird, I like variety, so we have a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Except we have a ton of prefolds in a huge variety of sizes and types. I just got some orange-edged newborn prefolds from Green Mtn Diapers that are wider but shorter than the usual infant CPFs. I think those + the jellyroll fold, which I didn't discover until much later, are going to help us with the blowouts this time. We also have some fitteds too... Little Beetles, Motherease Sandies, and Loveybums, plus a couple of Very Baby AIOs for the diaper bag or whatever. The teeny fitteds and AIOs are so adorable - with EK we only used prefolds in the beginning, but I like fitteds under wool. Ah, I CD... one of my favorite subjects.

I am so happy for Saskiasmom. She went through a lot to get little Iris here.

Geo, Happy Birthday to your DH!

Poppy, good luck with that decision. How cool to have the option, though!

Just have a quick second, but I have been meaning to ask, and her last post just makes my point: Plady, is there anywhere you haven't lived?? My goodness, seems like you have been everywhere!
post #27 of 938
Oh, and Geo, your research skills are just amazing.

kerc, hope you are having a happy birthday!
post #28 of 938
it's nasty outside, and dh didn't get to leave work until 5 and he's got to travel about 30 miles. i'm fretting about him getting home safely. though, he's got good tires and he's a good driver so i shouldn't be that worried.

for some reason i can't get a grip on actual things i need to do, so this afternoon i knitted a little bit, made brownies, putzed around, but did nothing monumental.

now i have a bit pot of veggie soup on the stove and just hoping dh gets home safely.

This is pretty OT, but does fall in the woo-woo department... we took our dog Hannah to the Chinese medicine vet on Monday. Among other things, she said her qi is blocked. Today she emailed us all the information for feeding a home-cooked diet, and we are probably going to start her on some Chinese herbs at some point after we get the diet underway. This is all really interesting to me; I have a feeling I will learn a thing or two. We have been through so much and tried so many things from Western medicine, and the vet actually said that she could get Hannah back to being a normal 8 yr old Labrador Retriever. I had given up on the idea that would EVER happen, so I can't wait to see where this goes.

gmm - i was not a good vermonter for that reason [among others]: i was a wreck either driving in that stuff or worried about dh driving in that stuff.

geo - thanks for your stalking. i am so happy to hear about saskiasmom; what a relief that iris is here safe and sound

plady/lofty/dingos who cook....anyone have an authentic queso dip recipe they can share? this is what i am looking for:
made with the real deal cheese [white, from mexico?] not velveeta
consistency is milky and almost more soup-like
does not congeal quickly
i don't want any with meat [no queso con carne]

thanks in advance

Hey Dingos! I've lurked on your threads before, as an off-and-on running MDC mama. But now I have a question so I am outing myself!

Ok, so I am about 3 weeks postpartum. I had a c-section after 30 hours of natural labor. I feel very much healed now, but I am still having some bleeding/lochia.

Prior to getting pg, I ran a 10K in November of 2006 and a 10K in March of 2007. I haven't done any significant running since I got pg in late March of '07. I'm really itching to get back into the groove. My plan is to train for a 5K on May 17, take it really easy, & give myself lots of time to run small distances at first and see how things go.

So, do you think I need to wait any longer? Or can I just jump in at 3 weeks postpartum?

Thanks for any advice!
post #32 of 938
Ms. B. Spout - welcome! I personally would wait a little longer to get out running. You don't want to do damage. Maybe try walking a bit. Wait until the incision is healed completely. And CONGRATULATIONS!

Eksmom - I totally am not going to do the frostbite five. I'm running 10 tomorrow, I'm not gonna want to do an 8k race. But could you add this one for me? http://www.flyingpigmarathon.com/ It's May 4th.

oooo poppy me too! Superbowl sunday and all ya know.

I'd do flying pig but I don't know that I will be ready by then.....hmmm......

I jsut saw they have a 5k event.....maybe I'll do that one!!
post #37 of 938
ooo I'm only doing the 1/2 though (realized I didn't clarify that).

Its our family - that would be good!
post #38 of 938
Hi Ms. B Sprout! (said in Susan Sarandon voice) "You need a nickname, honey!" I have had 2 c/s and waited til 6 weeks (and the end of the lochia) to start running. I *maybe* could have started earlier but had significant blood loss with both which I think is typical. I'd wait a few more weeks if I were you, go on some walks, and then start at 6-7 weeks or whenever your bleeding stops. If it comes back, slow it down or walk. Good luck!

Just got back from a chilly (southern chilly, that is) and fun 55 minute run and am about to plow into my oatmeal. mmmmm.......

Subbing because I want to feel the love!
post #40 of 938
poppy, how cool to get that invitation. don't you love how that kinda thing happens all at once? i mean, i have zero opportunties where i am now, but when i did have some cool options, they all came at once.

cheese dish. i *wish* i had a good one. i've experimented but haven't come up with anything. i did work at a fondue rest't in college and have been thinking of recreating the cheddar cheese/beer fondue or the white cheese/white wine mixture (emmenthaler, gouda maybe) as an option.
plady? got an authenic mexican queso dip sans plastica cheese?

ds & i have intermediate ski lessons today and i am so excited. i hope we get quad lessons help.

no races around here to add and i really don't know where i'll be living 2 months from now so i. just. don't. know. okay, that felt good.

welcome newcomers.

computer question for mac users: i have mac os/x and i've been getting this msg for about a month now that i need to delete files from my startup disk. that sounds pretty simple, but when i open my startup disk, it's just full of all kinds of technical stuff that i don't understand. i just don't know what i'm supposed to delete to clean it up. i've spent inordinate amounts of time researching and hanging out in apple support w/o luck. it's obviously something too elementary and simple to bother posting it; i just don't get it in my own brand of english. anyone? anyone? tia!!!

plady, :hearbeat

re: new england. we have the opposite issue. dh can't live anywhere else but here. oh just wait till i get a job. i'd love to have him follow me around for a change. one more year till ds2 is ready for school!!!

oh and i think he's totally serious about building an off-the-grid strawbale or something house here. he's actually got his eyes on some property but every book i've looked at shows houses that don't really look roomy & kid-friendly. i think we'll need an architect for this one but where in the heck do you find'em? i mean, i know where in austin but not in upstate ny.
