Congrats Gun!!

Morning mamas. Yesterday was so flipping hot! This morning it is a bit on the chilly side, but just beautiful. I hope everyone has a great day. I am off to work in the garden.

DoK - have you checked with your doc?
I went to the doc on Saturday. I'm feeling much better now. Still tired and feel wiped out but that could also be from allergies.

Congrats on the job!

today is wednesday. tomorrow is thursday. then it is friday! AAAAACCCCCKKKK!
now the nerves are full blast! ia m getting married. what the hell am i doing? dont worry i am not going to call it off, i am just nervous. it is a big event, my whole family is going to be there. did i buy enough beer?

<breathe>

ok now that i got myself together.....

i have to go check the cupcakes again today, i have to go to the salon and look through their hairstyle book, and i have to stop at the store for cat food and look for the jewelry i want to wear. and then there is what i have to do tomorrow. there ig o again. breathe jennifer breathe...

i have social anxiety anyway so this is mild for me.
i did put my rose quartz back on while i was typing this. things seem to be going well though, despite my worrying. the food is all taken care of, the drinks, my MIL, clothes, etc. my mom even found somebody (her husbands relation) to take pics and supply speakers for our music. we were are prepared to buy them, but it seems like now we dont have to.

the only thing driving me nuts right now is me, and DH who is too tired at night to take advantage of a hormonal woman. lol. 2nd trimester surge in libido is not helping right now. . he still has to make the signs tonight after working a 10 hour day. go to work and cut drywall, come home and cut wood. at least they will be sturdy and rain proof. it is looking like it is going to be 66 deg and partly cloudy. i am sticking to my original prediction. rain in the morning with an afternoon rise in temp to the 70's with enough heat to un-mud the ground. that might be wishful thinking though .

i found out i do not need to clean the lodge. the park manager said he would sweep, mop, and scrub. all i gotta do is double check everything. then rearrange and decorate.

LM~ yer sweet. maybe look for one of these guys, if you have time. i think they'd look lovely on you, and i find them very calming... i've just started wearing one, since my last bead store trip, and i lurve it. wish i'd known that sooner! just be sure that the day of, you go to bride land... where no problem is YOURs... but someone else deals so you just dont even know about it. hugs, you! it'll be awesome. oh, and please eat the day of. make sure someone saves you food. i'll be thinking of you!!!!


FR~ gak. i was right, i'm afraid. there will be no flowers for may baskets from my garden this year. i dont know if it's that it's hot, or just that it was so cool for so long then got HOT so fast? but the sweet peas are really fading fast this year. last year i was still picking arms full til the end of may!!! this year, i'll be lucky to get more than two small vases full at the beginning of may. sniff.


val, yes! this new moon has been something, huh? ::


gun, that is awesome about the job!!! weeehew!!! (and, yer trying again! yay! hugs and baby dust sweetest one!!!)



DOK, have you ever tried taking local honey? it's awesome for allergies...
and LOVE the tent/canopy idea! i'm making ds one when we get our new place. yay!


bella, hugs you. the trip sounds like an awesome idea!! maybe make some flying beads to help you cope.




:so, i guess i'm most into pushing camp, so.... anyone have any additional camp thoughts/want to claim a topic? i'm thinking after the 1st i'll start a seperate planning thread and we can go from there..... ??:

Morning All.

Well, I won't be going to VA to visit my friend. Things are just too crazy right now with the way DH is and this deployment, which is almost over. I really feel that I need to concentrate on us and am trying to manifest more harmony between us. Not sure exactly how to do that though.

My sister and nephew are coming over today. I am very excited. I have not seen my nephew in a long time and not only do I get to spend today with him, I am spending the night at my parents tomorrow. My Mom and I are going to the midnight showing of Wolverine (did I mention that on here already *hides*).

Anyway, LM. Your wedding will be beautiful and I can't wait to see pictures.

Talk to you all later!

My son is super excited. We asked the building manager if we can hang a silk bower/canopy from the ceiling in ds's room and he said ok. So now Roo is carrying my wholesale Sarah's Silks catalog around everywhere and trying to decide which one to get. He said it's going to be his own magical space. Aww. (I'm going to have to save up for it, though. I tried talking him into the much less expensive playscape but he wasn't going for it).
mama! i hope to all the gods that you don't have swine flu :
yay about the canopy. those are so cool! his magic space, aww! that's so cute! i'd get one for my ds but he has bunk beds.

bellaluna: JMO-- i think to promote harmony with DH it'd be a thing to do to work on yourself, as in manifesting calmness and confidence and peace within yourself and your home. visualize not reacting hugely when he has PTS from being over there. remember that he has lots more on his mind now, bigger things, like...world peace, maybe, and he's perhaps not going to be as worried as you are about the littler things, like...marriage actually i don't mean that to be funny at all, but i wanted to lighten the tone a bit so you don't think i'm sounding be-yotchy, kwim? but anyway. hope that made sense.

Trying to catch up before the end of the month and.... nope. Not a gonna happen. Soooooo...

Big hugs to those dealing with illness, whether that is a physical or a spiritual/emotional condition. For the body maybe some hot soup, citrus fruits/juice, tea (I love gypsy cold care), echinacea, probiotics, and massage. Find one of those online "rub your feet right" sites and after a foot bath give yourself a foot treatment maybe? For the spirit, perhaps one of the bach flower remedies? Aspen for fear of the unknown, Gentian for self doubt, Hornbeam if you feel overwhelmed, Star of Bethlehem for emotional loss.

And huge hurrahs to those with things to celebrate... graduations (or a loved one's successful defense ), weddings, adventures!

Weather- it snowed last week, then was in the 90s over the weekend, and now it's a (normal for us, for the season) 50s with some sun. But the plants are seriously confused. This should be an interesting May Day.

Still don't have any good plans for Beltane... somehow it keeps going wobbly. DD1's preschool has a maypole and morris dance on Friday, then one of the local ecovillages is doing a fest on the weekend, then close friends are hosting a combo May Day party (may pole, music, huge bonfire) and Birthday party (four adults sharing a birthday) on the 9th. But my personal plans just keep getting pushed aside.

Be pretty! Be practical! Be Pagan! Visit Pagan Hearth & Home!

Just found out our local library is having a May Day Celebration. It's on Saturday...Complete with may pole dancing. Trouble is, it's probably going to rain.
Ah, Spring.

Morning mamas. Today is going to be nice, as usual I will be spending most of it outside. I hope everyone has a good day.

Beltane- I too have no plans. I am finding it difficult to keep my thoughts on one thing at a time. It must be the Spring, I have all these things I want to start/finish around here, plus getting ready to move to our land, too much going on.

well, I managed to salvage yesterday. met with my dff and discussed the concerns parents had about tuition- found a few resolutions. I also got to chat with her about all the stuff between dh and I and felt so much better. Yay for friends!

I bought some Mike's Hard Berry yummy goodness and dh and I talked.

Beltane plans- stir fry shrimp for dh, fake chicken for me and the girls. for dessert something berry- torte maybe? I have to pick up the materials for the baskets and flowers today. Kids are going to Grandma's house in Saturday

Beads and Stuff- my necklace is done- I am short maybe 5-10 beads, so need to pick those up today.

thanks. i did pick up some aventurine. same exact color.

It is tomorrow. the wedding is tomorrow. breathe breathe breathe.. huff huff huff, omg omg.

i have to got to the chiro today, then i am going to get my mani/pedi! havent had one in a long time. i wasnt going to get fake nails but i changed my mind. i have so much stuff to do that i am afraid the paint would come off my real nails. they are so thin. i never paint them b/c it peels off within hours. so ia m going to see what kind of fake stuff they have.

finally made a decision on the cupcake decs. the lady called this morning andsaid she already made the 80 yellow cupcakes (at hyvee) but said she would make me chocolate ones today. no problem. the dec i wanted on them looked awful even though she did exactly what i asked. so i picked something out of the book. it will be much better. chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese/buttercream frosting. with little pink and orange flowers and green vines. much better than what i had thought i wanted.

i made a hair appt for tomorrow. the lady who is supposed to be doing my hair is past her due date! she might not be there and doesnt know if someone will fill in for her! i have to make a back up appt! so that has me worried. the hair college i am getting my nails done at would be able to get me in but it is 30 mi away from the lodge. i better start calling around.

all i am waiting on is to hear from the music man. the last piece of the puzzle. i am hoping my mps player will work with his setup b/c i personally chose all the music. my favs from the 60' 70's. some offbeat stuff also like stray cats and dr hook.

here's praying everything goes right tomorrow! wish me luck!

Gah! I'm a bit bummed out. I'm not going to make my personal sales goal for this month. Wish I knew how to get a few more orders in. Hmm, maybe I should showcase a fabulous magical book. giggle.

Ds is looking forward to the May Day celebration on Saturday. We read from the BFB of Festivals and he really seems to remember the info well from there. I was even told that he talked about it at school. Aww.

Lioness- Best Wishes!!

Ok, so it's actually May for me now but I'll wait for you guys to catch up hehehe. Today (in the US) is my sons 16th birthday! He's having ice cream cake & got a swish illuminated new keyboard for his birthday and I sent him a nice gift card so I'm sure more techy toys will be coming lol. I just talked to him and Jon, who's up there for the weekend Jon's update: he's been discharged from all therapies! AND he's going to return to work in a couple of weeks : We never thought he would recover so FAST!! He said he's just going to show up at work one morning hehehe! (his boss has been holding his job for him all this time) He was pretty happy with my plan to be there for his birthday

yay Cari! i'm so glad. i hope he'll allow you to post pics. that's one amazing recovery!

Lioness-- happy wedding tomorrow! you'll just glow, i know you will. remember to breathe! the day is yours! i can't wait to see photos.

mamas-- i got my acceptance letter to the nursing program yesterday! : i'm happy, but i'm also really, really nervous. mostly about two things:
1) having to possibly get a roommate to help out with ds. it depends on my clinical hours.
2) being able to handle doing this *with* a kid. yikes. but i know plenty of other mamas who've done it, and with more kids, and with a job. they are my strength. i just don't handle lots of things well.
my treasure map says "Nursing Made Easy" in the career spot!

oh, aweyn, no, i didn't yet. i may or may not. email him, i mean. it's not about fear; i'm just too busy.

You can do this Pam! Where I went to school, and mom too, most clinical hours were day shift... I think mine usually started at 7am report. If that's the case you might need some before/after school care? But it shouldn't be huge! Congratulations and good luck :::

I'm sure Jon will be fine with me posting a pic or two on caringbridge for all the people that have been thinking of him through all this, I just didn't think to ask But I'll definitely put a couple on my photobucket to share with you mamas! You all helped hold me together through that 8wks of hell, so I reckon a picture or two of us all in good health is a fair repayment

Now.. starting thinking it will rain money into cari's bank acct thoughts lol. Our 900 buck tax bonus just hit the bank today.. that's half of a plane ticket I'm going to loot the other half from hubby's tax acct and add $ to our fortnightly deposits to make it up by the end of the tax year in June I'm willing to go into a little debt for this.. but if I can find a way to minimize that life would be good

Lioness - wishing you a wonderful love filled marriage, and a great wedding day!

Maia - Woo-hoo!!!! That is so awesome!! You can do it. Nursing programs are hard work but worth it! I had only 2 evening rotations in clinicals.

Cari - I am so happy about Jon's amazing recovery!! Yay Jon!!!

Today has been uber crap filled. I am still waiting on our taxes. I found out that I overdrew my checking acct (because I was mad at Macy's and had to pay them off). Then I find out that circumstances dictate that I remove my DH (urgh!) from using his debit card. I am so mad at him I could freaking spit!! I hate feeling like I need to parent my partner. I had enough of that w/ the first husband. Oh, and DD has strange watery blisters on both thumbs and index fingers that appeared yesterday. My guess is maybe allergies?! We know she has a few food allergies but can't pin it on anything. Maybe that was it? She hasn't had a fever at all so I am not inclined to think chicken pox. But it also wasn't like she was out digging ditches either! Any guesses?

And now I am second guessing my decision to take this recnet job after all. I am doubting my abilities. And fraught w/ worry.
I am hoping tomorrow is better. At least we know it will be for Lioness!!

Peace- Heather

Ty mamas! I'm so proud of him I could just burst... so many people would have just wanted to curl up and join the one they loved, but he soldiered on.

Gun.. I've btdb with the debit card abusing SO : We still have issues occasionally with nickle & diming but he's so much better now... oddly enough we have more money than we ever have, but he's more careful about his small splurges. Go figure?

Lioness... have a blissfully beautiful day tomorrow. I am sure everything will come off flawlessly and you will have a gorgeous day

Sorry to interrupt (I am not Pagan sorry!) I was helping the mods reading and wanted to say that I have experienced those with soaps or lotions, I have allergy issues with fragrances.

Not be-yotchy at all. I have been doing stuff to work on myself. I drove around town last week, with my Mom. Still working out and loosing weight, slowly. You are right on me needing to work on not reacting hugely. I decided the other day that I just need to let it go or at the very least TRY to, cause it gonna be work.

I just talked to him and Jon, who's up there for the weekend Jon's update: he's been discharged from all therapies! AND he's going to return to work in a couple of weeks : We never thought he would recover so FAST!! He said he's just going to show up at work one morning hehehe! (his boss has been holding his job for him all this time) He was pretty happy with my plan to be there for his birthday
That is fabulous news about Jon!

2) being able to handle doing this *with* a kid. yikes. but i know plenty of other mamas who've done it, and with more kids, and with a job. they are my strength. i just don't handle lots of things well.
my treasure map says "Nursing Made Easy" in the career spot!
Yay! :

Happy Beltane Mamas!!!! I am operating on 3 hours of sleep because I went to the midnight showing of Wolverine last night Had a blast, even though the movie was totally shorter than expected.

I am thinking of doing a little meditation for fertility today. Just light a candle and focus on being abundantly fertile I might get my journal and sit outside later to write in it. I will need a new one soon too.

:::: Happy Beltane!

We know she has a few food allergies but can't pin it on anything. Maybe that was it? She hasn't had a fever at all so I am not inclined to think chicken pox. But it also wasn't like she was out digging ditches either! Any guesses?
i HATE that, about parenting a partner. that's why i don't complain (much ) about being a single parent. when ds was born, i had him (and being a first time mom), his father (who was 46 going on 9), and his half sister, who was 11 going on 3. it was bloody awful.
his 2nd son had the same name as he did, and he actually let that boy go to Costa Rica on a credit card that was mine, with his name on it, because the boy's name was the same and then was like..."what?" with this blank look when i was livid about it. the kid ran up $3-400 on it while there, and did dh have any money to pay it? of course not :

chicken pox starts on the torso, i believe. at any rate, not on the fingers and hands! no idea, mama. if it's only thumbs and index fingers, i'm guessing something she touched and had a reaction to?

well...i have got all the prereqs out of the way, so there's that, at least. all i have left to take is the actual nursing classes.
what kind of nursing does she do?

that's what i meant, not the working on you that involves exercise and being out of the house. i meant the part about spiritually, self confidence, not going all needy on him (codependent) cause he is not going to be all about that at *all*, being able to give him space and let him get used to being back, being able to hang with yourself even though he's there, being able to see your part in arguments and not blaming, practicing acceptance. that kind of work

Happy Beltaine, all! off to go a'Maying!
