, I tried reading a bit in the politics subforum but I got distracted reading one woman's posts in order to see what stupid thing she would say next.
: Luckily before posting I realized what frame of mind I was in and just left.
jeaninevp922, I hope Jamison is feeling better (and you are sleeping better soon). Yeah for the piano. We have a drill and extra paint in our pantry despite having a very large garage. FIL doesn't want the rechargeable battery exposed to the changes in temperature.
Can you hike with your mom? Send her out on errands? Have her paint a bedroom? Babysit so you can go to dinner with dh? I know what I would do with my in-laws for 24 hours. Not exactly
: but more like climb a tree and hide. Luckily they get a hotel room when they visit any more so that they can go rest. All the kids wear them out. maylea_moon
, your dc are exactly three years apart. My mom keeps telling me that would be the easiest age difference to handle. What do you think? My secret theory is that she experienced many other age differences (1, 2, 4, 5, years) and thinks that anything other than the way she did it would have been easier.
Jess, I was hoping you would post more and let us know how you are doing. I miss your updates and summaries. I hope you are facing Monday strong and ready to take on the world.
We opened some of Linus's presents tonight. He got a pair of Keen tennies size 6 so they must be for next fall, the cutest two pairs of striped smart wool socks, a silly toy, and a not very cute coat that is w - a - y too large. The socks are my favorite. You would think at this point in my parenting life cute socks wouldn't get me so excited.
That was from my in-laws, they love REI. My parents got him a musical card that he and Charlotte play over and over. They struggle with age appropriateness and enjoy getting the dc things that will irritate me. Some of you have mentioned different sensory issues; my issue is very much noise or what some of you may call sound. So, there was no real party, just a family visit. He was a bit cranky as my Pop woke him up from his nap being loud (this is the norm for these visits).
Personally, I am having so much fun losing weight and getting back into shape I cannot decide what to try next. That sounds funny even to me. Seriously, I have made a list of different types of exercise to try or work into my days. My mom left a yoga dvd as I only had VHS tapes and I want to order some belly dancing workouts. Wendi
, I love hearing about your yoga and Wii.
: It gets me going to try more.
