Thanks. The doctor was not sure what to suggest except more testing. I feel like I am wasting my time and should head over to my naturopath, but I'll give this another appointment and see what comes up.

I'm pretty sure it's teeth, the Hyland's teething tablets helped alot. I think we need to do them again so he'll sleep. I need to run but thanks everyone on the compliments on the pics of the kids. I am thinking of you all as I read along, much love!
Have a great time! I've had luck with the Hylands too, although I still think DD is a ways off from a tooth surfacing, she still benefits from them.

Today I had my review at work, to which I wonder alot, the work related part lasted all of about 5 minutes. They had pretty much nothing to say except that I do my job very well, very consistent with my work and just to keep up the good work and learn as much as I can. Then we talked about water parks for the next half hour. heh. I really don't have it that bad, I mean, not very many people get the opportunity to such freedom at work as I have. Most of my posts are made from work, and I'm starting to do some of my own writing... Though I sometimes feel guilty about posting from here, and those are the days I keep my posts short. It's time I learn to see the glass half-full, for real.
Teeny, Congrats on things looking up between you and DP!
: And reviews at work...bleh! I remember those things, they just felt like such a waste of time to me. And I would also goof off on the internet during work and everyone was always IM'ing each other so we wouldn't have to walk 10 steps...
Ah, the days.... but I don't miss them. My industry was pretty stressful and still is from what my friends still there say. It was easy work and we had really flexible hours and could easily and frequently work from home but it still wasn't my thing. I quit there in 2004 and am so glad. Its good that you like your job though and see the importance of seeing the glass half-full. Next you can work on filling the glass to overflowing and letting all that joy spill out into all areas of life.

hope that doesn't gross anyone out. I am dairy free for Henry so what is he next best thing?! just don't tell my dh...he will be grossed out.
laughup That's awesome! Maybe you could tell him about it after he has eaten them? Just for a little fun
salt_phoenix A wild horse! Oh my, that is so awesome! I love seeing all the deer around our place, but a wild horse would just be too awesome. I'm a horse person at heart, I just don't have the space for one right now. We live next to a doctors office in a remodeled house. There is a doe and her 2 fawns
that frequent the back yard of the office. They have a wood fence surrounding their yard, but one panel is missing and the deer slip through the fence there to spend the night and early mornings there. There is an apple tree there too, so they even have food. I see them nearly every evening from my bedroom window.
: The postcard swap is on! I haven't figured out how I am going to make them, but the ideas are brewing in my mind and I'll come up with something. I think this is going to be so much fun!
On pets and spiders..... Having grown up on a small farm, I love critters mostly. I have even held a tarantula and thought that it was so cool to feel it walking up my arm, but I don't think I would own one.
There are several resident spiders in our apartment, some live and some get squashed. There is another poisionous spider here in the PacNW called the hobo and I'm not sure how to id it, so some 'suspicious' spiders get squashed, others scurry across the carpet as I approach and I don't pursue. I have mixed feelings about pets being only indoor. I am one of those that has seen, as in literally watched a car hit my favorite dog when I was 12. It was so sad cuz there was a strange dog across the street and so our dog was protecting his property. There was a car coming down the hill and around the corner...... then it only badly injured my dog so my dad made me go to the house to get a rifle to do the kind thing.
I know it would be much more natural for my cat to be an indoor/outdoor cat. But when he was a kitten, I just couldn't bring myself to do it after having several of my pets being severely hurt or killed when I was a child living out in the country. But then OTOH each year we kept one steer from the rest and corn fed it. I always named this one Beef, and I was fine with it being taken to the butcher shop in the fall. We even made a contest of guessing the weight. We butchered our own chickens, rabbits and pigs. It's all life and death and I guess just like there are freak accidents that kill humans, the same can happen with spiders, cats, etc.
On the medical front...I have a transvaginal ultrasound tomorrow. They don't suspect the digestive tract because my pain is too low. So we'll see what that brings.
Today DP surprised me. I told him that my parents want to see DD and also need some help and so I will probably be going there later this month for up to two weeks. His response was to be sad and worried. "Two weeks? I thought at most you'd go for 2-3 days." He says he misses me already.
So I told him it would probably be closer to 1 week but I'll see. He is trying to be better, I can see it. He is a really good person, he is under a lot of stress and hasn't been handling it well. It is a 12 hour drive and I'm not sure how DD will be about being in the car for so long. And stopping to care for her will make it closer to 16 hours each way. So I'll see, I would like to make the trip straight through, I'm not going to push DD's good nature just to save $60 on a hotel room. The cheapest plane ticket is still about $200 more than the cost of gas.
This morning I started laundry and then logged into CW. DP was like "what's this?" with a little sarcasm. I told him and he was starting to laugh and then I said there couldn't be any negativity cuz I get more done now and so it's good and he better be quiet about it if he likes the results.
Then he wouldn't let me make lunch for us cuz he didn't want me to claim points and thought it was funny that I wouldn't let him make the bed after the linens came out of the dryer cuz I wanted to claim the points.
to everyone! TTYL
