Well, looks like we will be looking for a cage, too.

I was researching parakeets, and a lot of people say that the "starter kits" are too small of cages for two birds.

Our cage says "starter kit" on the bottom.. ah, well..

Sorry for the ridiculously short notice, but this evening there will be a meeting for EC mommas (and pappas & babies) in Anchorage. That's elimination communication for those on abbreviation overload. Wednesday 11/12 from 5-6pm at Kremer Chiropractic* at the NE corner of 36th and Denali. (*Kindly hosted by Dr. Jessica Allen). If you are interested in trying EC, already are or just want to learn more please come.

If you can't make tonight, or if you are reading this after the meeting, feel free to contact me via pm for more information about future get-togethers.

You don't want them anymore? I don't think 4 would be that much more work than the two I have...

well, we rescued one of them and never intended on keeping it. Then got the other to keep the first company. I'd love for them to have a new home.

PM me if you want to discuss it more.

your mailbox is full!

this is what i was going to pm you:
nak. let me talk to my dh an see if there is some way we can transport them to anch. maybe a very warm vehicle and lots of blankets over their cage would do. i will also research it and call our vet to get a better opinion.

Hey, count yourself lucky...we have TWO teens (three when DSD is here) plus a gaggle of teen friends, and 3 more kids, AND ourselves...

and one small stand-up shower and one pedestal sink and one puny toilet.

I love my house, I love HAVING a house, but I've been encouraging B to put in an outhouse for just this reason.

love, p

When we had one bathroom in our old place, dp taught the boys how to pee in the yard. I was not so thrilled with that idea.

We put toddler potties in the bathroom (they were still little then) so we ended up with 1 bathroom and three "potties".

Interestingly we have three toilets in our new house, but they are in seperate rooms now.. my kids were SO amazed!

Growing up we had only one bathroom. Was very interesting when we had church groups come stay at our house -- at one point I think we had 13 people sharing the one bathroom. That was hard. I have decided that I always want at least 1 1/2 baths.

the cool part about living in Alaska is that peeing outside is cool! LOL
All of my kids know how to "camping pee" and we utilize this technique frequently when traveling the AlCan and other lonely roads.

There are many days I miss the simplicity of a cabin and outhouse though.

Ugh, excuse me for saying so- but why would someone want to sh!t inside their house? Thank heavens my husband and I found each other... we've agreed that we'll NEVER have an inside toilet. Ewww!

Well, as much as I love outhouses, there comes a time when it is -50 and 3am and you're 8 months pregnant....and, well, you just cannot make it all the way outside.

I think the worst part of the outhouse situation in interior Alaska is having to put all shoes and a coat to go potty! LOL

But you know, you have a point. If you really think about it, it is kinda gross. At least now days people are smart enough not to throw the chamber pot stuff out the window and onto the street below! *Blah!

And I venture to say that many in ALASKA agree with us too.
I am BEYOND grateful that I live where I can pee anywhere I choose
without having to look over my shoulder. Town living is NOT for me.
So I'll iterate, wow, judge not lest ye be judged, yk.
