yay Mamabeth!!!:



Myself, I just turned down job offer (for crappy PT job) #3. Could the universe get it together and make those offers when I am actually looking for a job?

congrats, mamabeth! sounds like that was something you really wanted.

i woke up at 5 AM today, had the perfect opportunity to run while dh was getting ready to work, but i did some computer work instead. now it's near 11 and i'm wasting more time at the comp. don't know if i'll just stick the kickboxing video in again or what.

hope everyone who is sick feels better soon. i hate being sick in the summer, nothing worse than that.

Go Beth!!! I owe you an email, btw.

Dh got home yesterday evening from a 3-day trip and I did a nice 4 miles this morning. Ahhhhhh... mama feels less stressed. I'm starting to feel like I can actually do the 10K at the end of September.

I got the keys to my office yesterday - I'm a little woozy with the power. They finally told me I had email and gave me the password set-up protocol and I had 55 emails! My co-worker and I hauled a bunch of furniture to the hallway outside our office to make a student lounge. Mmmmm, fake ficus!

MB...Congratulations!!!:

Plady..Happy Anniversary!!!

Went out this afternoon looking for the dmv so I can renew my dl. I could not find it! Despite having the address and directions! Urghh!

Tonight I may attempt coloring my own hair. I'm very scared to do it!
Time for wine!

Mamabeth that is wonderful news! Congratulations :

Plady - happy anniversary (our 10th is coming up in october)

who's watching the opening show tonight?

eta: went on a 4 miler with jgmommo. Guess it was a bit too soon, really tore my tummy up. But it was an interesting outing. ds in my jogger, her ds in my old jogger, my dd riding her bike with training wheels, her dd flying on her bike.

:: Yay, mamabeth!!!! Congratulations! They're lucky to have you and don't you forget it!


Happy Anniversary, Plady! Sounds like your dh is feeling better emotionally now. Is that so?


We're getting ready to head to Ocean City, MD for a week of honky-tonk, beachy wonderfulness. It's been a long time coming and I can't wait to watch the sunset over some water.

I have to run 15 miles by myself while I'm there. It's new distance for me and I'm a little freaked about not having a partner to support me. Dh just said he wants to try it but he's never run more than ten miles in his life. Is it stupid for him try? Is he likely to get injured? I'd love the company but I don't want him to be foolish.

Mamas, I need some advice. I'm very sick ~ fever of 103.1, chills and shaking, the sorest neck I've ever felt in my life and a headache that 800mg of Motrin isn't touching. My neck hurts so badly I just want to cry. It radiates down into my arm and thoracic spine and I've been laying in bed since about 3:00pm. I have cold/flu symptoms as well, with achiness, stuffy nose, coughing, etc. And I found out today that hand, foot, and mouth is making the rounds at the YMCA child center .

So, should I go to the ER? I'm worried about meningitis, to be honest. I've never felt a headache like this, ever.

That was my first thought. I personally would go in. Take care and keep us updated the best you can.
post #255 of 913
jaygee~Meningitis popped into my head too. I'd go to the ER. Please keep us updated.
post #256 of 913
Jaygee~I'd say go. And do it now, before it gets any later and the Friday night crazies start making their appearance in the ER. The sore neck is worrying, and a 103+ fever is nothing to take lightly either. Go get checked. :

towson~What about having him join you for part of the run? You could do the first half by yourself and then have him join you for the second half. I would be worried about him doing that distance if he hasn't been training to work up to it, and we all know what babies men can be about pain, so I wouldn't want that to screw up my vacation, kwim?

So, needless to say I am NOT napping. Right as I'm getting ready to lay down, the phone rings. It's the biker's nephew. Essentially giving us an ultimatum that unless we can come to a financial agreement tonight, they're going to have their lawyer contact us tomorrow. : H called him back and he pretty quickly backed down, but I *just* stopped shaking, nearly two hours later, so napping was not gonna happen. H has calls in to a couple of lawyers, but being that it was 3:30 on a Friday afternoon, I'm sure we won't hear anything until Monday. It's all just so ridiculous, we're willing to be nice (or at least WERE), but we get threatened because we're not moving fast enough? And they haven't even mentioned a number of how much they want from us, because they don't even have any bills yet. We've offered multiple times to go ahead and file a claim with our homeowners' insurance, but no, they'd rather just handle it privately. Which seems to me indicates that motives there are not entirely pure. Blork.

And I feel kind of bad because H is under a ton of stress at work right now AND he thinks he may have shingles. He really doesn't need this stress right now, but he's being absolutely phenomenal about it. He keeps telling me that it will all be fine, it's just money. And you know what, he's right. Still doesn't help with the stress of it all, though...

Jaygee I second pp.

towson - I also second gaye, have him join you for the harder miles and definitely keep it shorter, otherwise he'll be miserable for days afterwards!

*SO* not his call. It's like you back into somebody in a parking lot, and they want you to pay out of pocket instead of contacting *your* insurance. Yeah, no. I'd call your homeowners' right away and direct all of his future calls to your rep there, who has experience with this kind of thing. If he's angling for some big money thing, an insurance company isn't going to just roll over.

Sorry for the doggie metaphor.
post #259 of 913
Jaygee, you went, right? I hope so...

MB, way to go! I'm focusing now on the prayer and waiting, and it is HARD! Well done!

JenLove, I have been to that shop once. (I don't get out much.) AWESOME baby gifts for NFL-type folks, and of course totally family friendly. A super-nice bunch of people and a great place to network. I work about 4 blocks down the street.

Mandy, Mine goes back and forth, though he used to be like that nearly 100% of the time. I feel like I married a child, and he recently grew up. There's still a lot he just doesn't do, but there's a ton more he does do. I did change my reaction, and while I am usually not a tit-for-tat girl (like, NEVER with money, for example), if the house is a mess and he is lounging, I lounge. Often, the next AM, when we are not tired, I say "let's do it," and we clean, whole family, together. We're done in like an hour or so, and he helps keep the kids from messing it all up before I am done, and I feel better. WHatever...I know how you feel; it's not the work itself. It's the sense of inequality.

I might go turn the TV on and try doing some writing while the kids watch...

Oh yeah, I agree, Penelope. The only reason that we're holding off is because our rates will go up if we file regardless of whether we're liable or not, so reaching a private settlement *may* actually be a little cheaper. And they don't want us to file because we've told them that our insurance company has told us that they don't think we would be found liable which means they wouldn't get anything. Now, we would rather that the injured man gets the money rather than our insurance company, but they may not leave us a choice, kwim?
