No going home news for baby Niles today.

We got the pics taken at the hosp and the bmom helped and picked some out. We had a great visit and he is a hungry little fellow! There are some concerns with the bdad. SO we are just on pins and needles.
It feels exciting, a bit nervous, not because of me, but my DH drives my car sometimes and I worry about him because of his job. It is a pentagram made out of ivy, no mistaking it for what it is, but I love it. Also says blessed be.


gun, I hope everything goes well with Niles, health wise and involving the bdad. Will be thinking of you.

I am in awe of them, after 26 years they are still so in love. They worked through their 2 times of wanting a divorce and still stick it out with each other. They are my example, even if its flawed.

I have a job interview at a local car dealership tomorrow as a sales person. Its a job and I need one. My Dad is not thrilled, he's a mechanic and very much dislikes care sales people.

Congrats Heather on the new baby, if I haven't said it already.

to all.
Good luck on the job interview. Congrats to your parents. I also don't think it's a flawed role model for relationships, it's an honest one, therefore a perfect one imo.

Oh poor little one. I hope everything comes back positive. Thinking about you and your little guy DOK.

Thinking of you and the roo...

Candle burning for Niles too. And general "get healthy" vibes to all the owies, ouchies, and sickies (of the physical as well as emotional variety). I think this is going to be a challenging winter season for a lot of reasons...

OK, the "if you haven't got your health" line from Princess Bride just came to mind. I need to watch that film again.

Ok, this is really weird. The regular pediatrician wants to see Roo on Tuesday. After that exam (etc), they'll decide whether he needs to see a pediatric cardiologist and they will have to set that up themselves (otherwise, I wouldn't be able to get an appt until Nov!)

I'm rather surprised that they even want to wait until until Tuesday.

They even do this for adults, sadly. Here's hoping for a hole in their schedule-book for him!

Hi ladies. I am very sleepy tired for some reason this morning so I won't reply to too many posts yet. Just wanted to pop on and say,
Yay for the sticker on the car! We don't have one on ours because we are still wanting to trade it in next year.
Hope that someone cancels and appointment so your little guy can get in sooner than that.
I also feel a tie to my grandmother more so than my mother, but my grandmother is still alive and a devout- emphatic christian. But she's very into no chemicals and working in her yard and making things with her hands. Other than the christian aspect, I feel more like her. Even though I get along better with my mom. Lol. Or maybe the same just different ways? Who knows.
And keeping baby Niles in positive thoughts for you. Hoping everything turns out the way its suppose to.

Okay. Off to go take a nap. I've been studying my real estate exam CD.
(Could be why I'm so tired. Lol.) It doesn't flow fast enough for me.

Hi Mamas!

I have been so out of the loop lately. I have spent the last three days at the armoury working...including one 13 hour day...with the princess! Ouch!

We are also (on a side note) on this ttc journey and my chart looks insane. The last two were great...this one, it looked great until a few days ago and now it is all over the map. I'm confused and wish I had someone in real life to turn to about this. The doc refuses to give me a referral to an OB. I plan on visiting our primary midwife Tuesday since she is going on mat leave for the next year So happy for her. Maybe she can have a peek at the chart and see if I'm insane. Not sure if this is related to anything but I've been teary-eyed (to songs like itsy bitsy spider) and nursing has been owies...just doesn't make sense because it doesn't look like I ovulated...maybe I should have posted in cycles camp lol.

I was thinking of all you ladies yesterday when I was walking home mid-morning and saw that there were so few people outside. It is like fall hit and the people are now indoors...turning their focus in...

Personally I am still loving the weather. It is another sunny day but with a cool breeze and the leaves are changing colours...just stunning!

Tonight I leave for another weekend on course. I'm completely exhausted from the lack of sleep and I'm hoping to get a little while I am away from here. Whoever is in my room...well they will hear my thermometer haha. No secrets I suppose :P

s I briefly saw a few things...I hope Roo feels better.

Gun - I hope all goes well with the echo and you get your little one soon! I hope bmom is getting better after the PPH.

Unfortunately they probably have no choice to wait till Tuesday I used to know a few specialists when I was in nursing and they all worked 10hr days, or longer, and the longer the shifts... the more mistakes happen. Someone that's been at work for 12hours and is exhausted is not someone you want evaluating Roo's ticker. Not to trivialize this, but hopefully the fact that they thought it COULD wait till tuesday is a good thing (if they didn't think it could wait you'd be sitting in a paed ward right now). Sending healing energy his way, well what little this busted old body has at the moment You guys have had a bumpy enough road lately, you could do without this!

Heather, usually murmurs are nothing to worry about, so here's hoping it's minor! Hope the issues with the birth father aren't huge

Hubby is off getting his business tax done, bit nervous as it's our first year with a business and we're hoping we have plenty in the tax acct to pay whatever is owed. Should be fine, but that doesn't stop me from worrying lol. After that we are packing overnight bags for Lucas & connor and heading to the grandparents house for a visit. The boys are staying overnight and mum is taking them to swim lessons in the morning before returning them We'll have Quinn, but without the oldest 2 he's cake

Babies!!! Yeah. I look forward to pictures of more (Niles plus the others waiting to emerge).

Holiday Trees - Have you looked into a Norfolk Island Pine. It is a potted plant/tree. Definitely "christmas tree" like - except you see more trunk than most. (Okay, a lot more). I've thought about getting one, but my house doesn't get enough light inside in winter for it to live.

Wedding Rituals - DH and I thought about a handfasting, but decided against it for a few reasons. (One being that our "minister" was a friend for mountain search and rescue and we decided he'd get a kick about tying some ridiculously complicated mtn. climbing knot) We ended up doing a candle lighting ceremony - in part b/c it wasn't terribly pagan and we didn't need to explain anything to our folks about what we were doing. We got 3 lanterns - his, mine and ours. After the ceremony we gave "his" to his mother to take home so we'd always be grounded there. And mine to my folks. We also talked about doing a knotted rug - our lives intertwined are the basis for our home. I think we are going to still do that, probably for our 10th Anniversary (June 2011). A friend had a "brick making ritual" - she and DH brought sand/soil/etc. with them that represented where they'd been in life. They poured them together to make a "brick" that is their foundation to their new life together. (It's now somewhere in their garden.)

I'm still congested. I've decided I'm probably allergic to the babe. I love fall, but mine is almost over I'm afraid. Snow is down below 2000 feet, its raining today and I can't see the mountains - I won't be surprised if they are white to below 500' in the morning. We've had frost on the roof - but I still have blooms on my "hanging" strawberry plant and my lettuce is still alive. Its getting harvested tonight. Anybody know how cold collard greens and kale can take it? I know I can still harvest after 1 or 2 light frosts, but I don't want to push it. I probably still have the equivalent of 12 bunches to harvest so I am trying to avoid pulling it all before I really need to do so. DS is doing better with his teething, but it is due mainly to a diet of frozen blueberries, bananas, cold carrots and tylenol.

BTW - I am a huge carrot fan. I once ate too many while stressed and actually got a bit orange. But after the first frost Alaska carrots are soooo yummy. Our have some of the highest sugar content of any worldwide. I doubt many get shipped out to the rest of the world, but if you ever see them, get them. (I know some are shipped to Japan actually b/c they are pest-free). I got a new variety of purple potato "Misty Magic" - they are almost black inside and stay dark purple even when cooked. We're eating them for dinner tonight. I'm thinking purple potatoes with carrots and collard greens and salmon - it will at least be a really colorful dinner (purple, orange, green and pink). All local food - greens from my garden and salmon we caught, the rest is farmer's market produce.

Cool thoughts to those in the heat. Dry thoughts to the wet & rain. Healing thoughts to the sick and swollen-fingered. And sweet baby thoughts to all - whether they be human babies or project babies or new beginning babies.

Yeah but it's still a pine, which we're allergic to. (I do like Norfolks though).

We are in cardiac now in school, srsly, just today they told us murmurs in infants are normal. Or at least common. But good to check it out anyway; better safe than sorry I always say. So...it's 9:30 my time, now-- did you find out anything? Hang in there, mama

DS does that. He's 8 going on 9. He's been doing it since about 7, 7-1/2. Drives me nuts. How can you be 8 and bored?
My answer to that is usually "bummer"...but if he keeps on, I say "Well, then, if all those toys in your room are so boring, guess it's time to clear them out"-- shuts him right up

NO FAIR! It was like 83 again today By now I should have been able to put the flannel sheets on. Usually they're on by Equinox. Not this year. Today it was so freaking hot when I got home from class, I had to put on the AC and it took ages to cool down!
Didn't help that I discovered DS had forgotten to shut his window...

and one for you

Passed my lung assessment. Whew. That was hard. I forgot to say I would be assessing breath sounds, but the next class was filing in and I kept getting flustered. Yay she passed me anyway!

grats hun.. breathe sounds can be tricky to 'get'!

DH just called me and his tax is all done and it's great We have more than enough put away to cover it, AND we overestimated our income with the govt, so they will owe US a top up payment (plus the 600per kid payment we get at the end of the financial year anyway!) All of which goes straight into the bank (ok most, we may finally get the boys the kura bed from Ikea we've wanted to get them since last year ) because come December we'll have to start making quarterly tax payments to the govt of about 5k. Kinda irks me to do that, because at the end of our financial year they'll end up having to refund about 5k of that so it's a free loan to them All in all though a fabulous result from the accountant (first year as a business, so we were nervous we hadn't done everything properly!)

Off to start getting us together to go over to Nanas house

Hi everyone! Baby Niles came home with me this afternoon and he's doing ok. The results of the echo didn't come back but the ped doc thinks that there was nothing to worry about and gave us walking papers! There is still some weird drama with the Bdad, but Niles is home with us for now! Court for the bparents will be in about 3 weeks. Pins and needles till then. DD has been utterly terrific w/ the baby and I am so thrilled and proud of her.

DoK hoping that Roo is just fine.

Peace- Heather

Cold here this morning, I have to turn on the heat. We thought we would be at our new place by winter, not going to happen until spring, and we had our wood delivered there. So today we will be moving wood back over here so we can use the stove this winter.

Going to a fall festival today. I'm allowing Roo to go as long as he doesn't run around, etc. It's pretty chilly today. After a couple mild days, the colder temps are hard to handle.

There are dragonflies everywhere right now. They sometimes fly in swarms. Very odd to see so many.

Heather- How's your sweet Niles this morning?

DOK-I woke up thinking of you today. How is Roo? Have fun at the festival.

Gun- I was wondering how dd was doing. She seems to have such a sweet soul, I bet she loves being the big sis. So happy Niles is home! Thinking lots of positive vibes for everything to go well in 3 weeks.

Maia- Oh good, I figured it was part of the age. She hasn't said in two days since my friend asked if she would help scrub the floor. *hehe*

Singin-good to hear from you.

This morning is nice outside. Really thick marine layer (fog) coming off the ocean and that cools the morning down a lot. I love it. Today is Saturday! I can't believe how fast this week is passying by. We finally bought some fish for our big fish tank yesterday and the kids are loving watching them. I miss having fish also. I am rereading my Birthing Within book and I've got to say. I forgot how beautiful and touching the birthing art pictures she includes in it are. I found Z. Budapest (sp) website last night and was interested in joining her university. Anyone here been through it? Or know much about her? I've heard of her but haven't read anything she's written or any of her interviews or articles. I know, weird huh. I just always skipped over hers for some reason. But now, I feel drawn to her. Is it just because I wasn't ready for her before and somehow now the universe or goddess is saying now is the time?

Married to a Navy man of 12 yrs.

I'm home and am thinking of ways to jumpstart my book business again. Wondering what kind of incentives will get people to order before the end of this month.
What about offering a discount (in addition to the current free shipping)? Think that would work? Or a raffle entry with each order? Gah, I don't know.
Maybe I should feature seasonal/earth friendly books right now.
Ok, off to redo my online site.

Aw, thanks for thinking of us. Roo went to the festival but got tired from walking. Something is definitely not right.
He did get filmed while there and will be on tv. Ok, local cable, but still.

Z- like many well known/established pagan leaders, she has some "colorful" moments. You may want to browse some of her writings to get a feel for her philosophy... she tends towards the Dianic end of the spectrum with a blend of female focused shamanism and wiccan ritual. She has made a few "out there" suggestions which tend to color people's impressions of her work, so it may be best to just look at her writings and avoid reviews at first.

Personally I have owned a few of her books, she has some neat rituals, but in the end her ideas didn't resonate for me.

Gun- yay for healthy baby Niles!

DoK- hope you get equally good news about Roo, and that they figure out what is causing the problem.

Maia- yay for breathing! You're just rocking nursing school.

I had a cider donut at dd1's fall festival yesterday... mmmmmm. One of the local apple orchards makes them using cider instead of water to make the dough. They make really tiny batches (it's a small counter sized donut machine) and they're much good yum.

We're having a yellow jacket population explosion around here. There were hundreds at the festival and then today it was even in the paper. Apparently they can chew through drywall so nests on the soffits of homes might lead to wasps inside come spring!

I'm still congested. I've decided I'm probably allergic to the babe.

i love both those ideas! so sweet.
lol@ allergic to babe! although, it might be sort of true in some sense... i know my "allergies" were very different when i was preg...
thanks!

My answer to that is usually "bummer"...
How did I miss that there was a bee sting? I read it all at once as gobbledegook Is it feeling better? Is it really a bee, or was it a yellow jacket? ...
....Passed my lung assessment. ... Yay she passed me anyway!
ok, my 3.5 y/o said it once... "i dont want to do that, it's boring." but he probably learned it from me....
yeah, bee. dont think we have yellow jkacets here? totally swollen and ick... and my whole body is ick. it was not this bad last time. waah.

oh, that sounds so so so good!
huh. so are yj not affected by the same stuff bees are? i've been reading theories about the bee shortage (though, we dont seem to have a problem here... although, we have a lot of the africanized ones....)

i am being soooo whiney. i can not believe how much this finger is affecting my whole body. ugh. and i seem to have reached some sort of level of not being able to be content here... that doesnt make sense, but i used to go in cycles-- get frustrated then find a vibe again-- and i just havent really found one since we got back from our summer trip. it's weird, and sort of like really bad senior-itis, and i just am at a loss as to what to do--ie, tapping and beads havent helped! sigh.

*excuse bad typing*

I can believe it- simple little things will set my day all wrong, like forgetting to put my contacts in. If I wear my glasses, something about the lack of peripheral vision makes me feel more closed, guarded, scared, or frumpy. Then I wonder, "why do I feel xyz?" and look in the mirror, "Oh yeah.."

I digress- I hope your finger heals up quickly. I heard something about ground-up aspirin, but I'm not a chemist/herbalist. gl!


We had our big meal of the day in the mid-day, so now we're all kinda... blah what to do.... maybe I'll mix it up and make waffles for 'dinner'.

YJ aren't hit by colony collapse... they're totally different critters!

YJs are aggressive predators, eat meat and insects as well as juice/nectar, sting and bite several times without injury to themselves, build hives from wood/fiber, and are generally unpleasant neighbors.

Honey bees are generally not aggressive, they eat pollen and honey for the most part, sting just once, build hives from wax, and are in danger of not being around much longer if we can't figure out the whole colony collapse picture.

There's a lot of work being done on this at Cornell, and a few of my friends keep bees (I wish I could but my MIL is deathly allergic and we don't know about the kiddos yet)...

I've never read any Z either...the little bits I've gotten off the back of her books was enough for me to realize she's a bit TOO feminist for me

i'm just not familiar with yj. i understand they're different, but are they not bees? or is it only "honey" bees that are in danger? i understood it was bees in general....

lol, thanks, but if i take you up on that, i'm afraid i'll be doing it til we manage to get out of here, and that's not likely to be for many months.... just having a low point (ok, now i want to watch "the holiday", lol!) thanks for humoring me, though.

speaking of, any rufus sewell fans? i've been watching middlemarch on netflix. ahhh.
