why are there 2 lists, google and yahoo? i'm only on one (yahoo), is everyone else on both? do they do different things, or do ppl just like one better?

Joi's MNM made several really cool paper airplanes for Sprogly last week, and he takes great care of them, and takes them back and forth to daycare. We are to look for a book about paper airplanes at the library today. Which reminds me, I'd better look in the catalog before we go so I know where to look.

Which stretch of road are you talking about? There's no alternate route?
my son is really into paper airplanes also. he has invented a few of his own and we have a huge basket of airplanes he's folded. he loves the books that have tear out, colorful, glossy pages with folding lines and instructions for making really cool ones. there is a kids one that i bed sprogly would like!

Well, we're only just now going to the farmer's market, so I really don't know if we're going downtown. We might go just to go on the MAX, check it out, and if it's crazy do something else, because just taking the MAX is entertaining in itself for the Sprog, but I'll see if I have any energy when we get back...

That was fun. Slow going, but fun. Stopped at our old park, and man, my hatred of dogs/owners has been revitalized. Sorry present company.

Jill, the google mdc group was the first one. Claudia made it a long time ago. Allison only recently started the yahoo group. The google group has more contact info in it, and now it has the calender. But you don't need to join the group to get the calender. You just need to give me your email address.

Oh, and I felt stoopid because I don't get the calendar thing.

Happy Birthday! Oh, they're also having wine tastings at the Sellwood and Seven Corners New Seasons this afternoon.

Were you able to see the calender? I'll approve you and it should send out another email.

I've never been, but I know you're insane for thinking about parking downtown. Stay on the eastside and walk across the hawthorne bridge. They've got a late of traffic closed, and you should have a good view from there (it's encouraged). Or maybe even from the OMSI esplanade.

right but since claudia is not around currently, it's a list only of people who got on it long ago... i thought the yahoo was made for that reason? i guess i don't really care if i am on 2 lists or not, it's not like i am really calling anyone anyway...

husband was going to do the flugtag, but it's at naptime, and the kid doesn't want to leave home anyway. he's into weekends are pj time...

The google group isn't even relevant to the calender anyway. The only connection was that I sent out an invite to the people on the google group as a way of reaching the most people with one address. I suppose I could do the same with the yahoo group, but as it turns out I have to add people individually anyway, so just pm or email me your address and I can add you.

Or, if a person is on the google group they can check the posts and there will be a link there.

Yeah... this is true. And I'm definitely in hypochondriac mode since my friend died. Todd told me the other day that I need to stop thinking that everything is going to kill me.

I guess it could have been the pumping that was causing me to spot and be really thirsty/hungry.

A small amount. This was more of a play doh smell he said. I don't smell it now though. Weird.

Although, shit! He went to sleep at 8 last night. Do night-weaning kids just always get up super early at first?

I got Nico's bike seat set up on my bike, I think I might take him somewhere today. Anything fun going on, eastside?
There ALWAYS something fun going on at my house!

I can vouch for that. The last wedding I did was at King Estate, and their wines were definitely in use there.

I would go out there again if anyone else wants to! They do have a nice restaurant.

It was a regular chicken egg. Not like a . . . . you know, tree nest birdy egg. It must have either fell out of a tree or off the roof. Or maybe someone threw it? I have no idea. It seems like a sign or something.
weird

Wow, that's awesome! I'm sure the whole sleep situation WILL improve... sometime. But it will.


I think tomorrow my gay boyfriend and I will go to Bishops and do something with our hair. Eek!

Are you still in stuck in the doldrums Pauline? How was the car show?

I'm heading out to my bike shop to drop off some cookies for the mechanic. Might see how close I can get to the bridge, just for kicks.

Eh . . .

Sophia and I took a nice nap together. I was feeling pretty unappreciated this morning so I verbalized my feelings to Shawn and now I have some chocolate bars. I do like chocolate bars.

Good for you!

Ugh. Ru now has a bit of a snaggletooth. It's not horrible and doesn't seem to be bothering her at all. I only noticed it when she smiled at me earlier. Apparently she fell on the patio while everyone was outside this morning, and I was in the shower.

Dentist? Hm. I have a chipped tooth that got that way when I was 7, and I never did anything to it. It's still totally fine. Never had any problems with it.

WWYD?

Today at the farmer's market Sprogly couldn't catch a break. First we thought we were getting in line for popcorn, but it turned out there was a long line going the other way (I really didn't see it) and people made it obvious that they would have been disgruntled, so even though we'd waited, we left. Then Sprogly had to go to the bathroom, and when he turned to say something to me right before it was his turn, a woman walked right in front of him into the stall. Who cuts in line in front of a child doing the pee pee dance, anyway? Then again, when he wanted lemonade, and I gave him the money and he waited in line, and someone who was right behind him ordered the last lemonades, right over his head. I said something, but the guy just scowled at us and walked off. The only other thing they had left was iced tea. The girl behind the counter was only a high-schooler, otherwise she'd have had a brand new asshole, because I swear she looked right at Sprogly before giving the lemonades to the guy.

He really likes getting in line and ordering by himself, but I guess I have to teach him to assert himself, because people don't even see him. We went back to the popcorn place, and this time I told him to remember who he was behind in line, and don't let anyone get ahead of him, just to say excuse me if they do. So he did fine.

We got a book about how to make origami airplanes. How exciting. I love the library.
