Isn't that the truth!! (and the root of a LOT of all of our problems

Anyone who has read the Bible should probably (again, IMO) consider themselves an environmentalist, but a LOT of the current Christian groups have very little to do with this issue
Sorry I've been out! We were camping in the Ozarks! Ben got to go on his first canoe trip. He and daddy went with my parents. Molly and I stayed back in the cabin. It was fun (other than some bee stings for Ben, and spider bites for DH and I) though a little crazy. I kept thinking of Salt Phoenix and the life in the camper. I used to think that I could LOVE a life on the go, but after the last 5 days, I'm not so sure.
Also, I'm cranky...3rd visit from AF already, even though I am EBF day and night. She never goes longer than 3 hours without eating day or night, and AF is already back. Don't mean to be too witchy, but I'm pissed at my uterine lining. Couldn't I just have a few free months!??
Dea, mine has been really long each time, too. But it hasn't been heavy the whole time. This time, it was spotting for 4 days and then started full flow, and hasn't let up yet. We'll see how long it lasts. Hope your procedure goes well!
Sleep is still quite broken, but I am working hard to get to a place of acceptance on the issue. The fact of the matter is that I am not willing to force her into anything right now, and I don't believe in CIO, so I need to embrace that we are co-sleeping together right now, awake 5-10 times, and DH is in the other room with DS. BUT, this phase will last only a short while, and then she will never be my LO again. DH and I will sleep together for the rest of our lives, we don't need the next few months. (However, please don't hold it against me if I break down now and then if I get a little tired
