I hope you don't have to have surgery for your abdomen.

I'm sorry you don't feel comfortable with your weight. I found it difficult to feel good about my size and had very disordered eating when I lived in Montreal. So many super thin and perfect-seeming people. There are boutiques where the largest size is a 6 Know that you are beautiful and eat healthy so that you can be strong for yourself and your family. Look at Romi and Liam- your body MADE those people! It is awesome

The job situation goes not far. We had to spend most of the week applying for Medicaid and Unemployment and job banks, temp agencies, personnel services and all that junk. Our friends who got fired too have already found jobs but the hours are 10 hours a day, 7 days a week making military vehicles. Ethically, this would be very difficult for Kam and the hours would be even worse.

oh mama! that's hard! I hope you don't have to have surgery. maybe that's the good thing about living in rural vermont--most women around here are sporting comfy clothes like me...no pressure!

Oh, doudat, I'd feel bad, too. Shame on that nurse for making you feel so crappy. We love you no matter what shape you are.

I was wondering about you, too. Something right will come around.

Everyone is asleep and I'm here eating chocolate ice cream. I spent the day preparing and cooking meals for the weekend, it's going to be in the 90's. Blah. Guess I'll be spending my spare time in the kiddie pool.

Thanks mamas :
And the nurse didn't say anything to me, it was just my reaction to my weight that made me feel crappy. That and the stupid Diastasis Recti... Anika: that's when your abdominal muscles separate during pregnancy but don't fuse back afterwards.

But milf made me

another job offer:
3 days a week, 12 hour days, every other weekend, 6pm to 6am
auto manufacturing with heavy lifting

all this seems doable except- it's only $9 an hour and 15 miles away with gas prices being over $4 a gallon

thoughts?

it starts tonight and Kam doesn't know yet because he's out job hunting

hmm...seems like a lot of driving for $9.00/hr... hate to see you spend a lot of your pay on gas. but some money is better than no money-right? it's long days for you too, mama!

That's the catch. It would be less money than unemployment insurance, which we don't know if he's approved or not. It seems wrong to accept unemployment if there is any chance of us surviving on the income. Gah!

He applied for a job at the library and that's biking distance. Also a few goverment/state jobs which would be great for benefits and since we live downtown, would also be biking or walking distance.

Personally, I would hold out for a job closer to home and take the unemployment insurance. And I wouldn't feel bad about it either. That's just me though. Dp goes on ei every winter because he's in landscaping, and can never find a job that will pay as much as the EI does in the winter or that wants a worker that is going to leave in March, yk? Plus it would never work out for us with childcare costs as well.

And can someone tell me what milf means??

i second what anika said-- take the insurance and hold out for a closer/better job. that'd be awesome if he got a job at the library!

hehe


koofie, that sucks about your condo. We are in the process of buying, and it's the opposite problem for us. Everytime we find a house in our price range, it's gone or there are multiple bids. It can be so frustrating!

Oh and we've been working on the house a ton. This weekend we'll be finally sanding the floors in the trash room (which is no longer trashed and has been painted), the bedroom and the kitchen. We're removing the doors so the front part of the house will be all open. It's wonderful to not have to go through the bathroom to get anywhere and I'm excited about the floor being nicer. I guess this means we're staying here! I've found that I can sand all the rust off the tub so it's looking better too.
