I have had the 8-ball only be wrong a handful of times, and I've asked it lots of stuff. I believe it is just as valid a divination tool, if it's done with intent. As for your "yes", yay! But also ask it will you get pregnant within X-time frame

For those of you have do or have lived in the South US: Anybody else hear or use the word "mash" in place of the verb "push" as in pushing a button. When I'm in the elevator I sometimes slip and say "Mash 5" for "Push Floor 5" - I've had other southerners tell me they'd never heard the term.
Thanks for the links! Though I had to realize, between my asking and your posting, that I really don't have time to look or investigate or make more salves

Nope. I've lived in the south for 22 years-- 14 on the Outer Banks and 7 here in the mountains, and I haven't even heard that in passing. What part of the south is it from?

I can't beleive Beltane is in two days!!! We are freezing here!

It's suppose to be way warmer by Saturday but DH told me he saw rain on the weather report.

I'll be inside almost all day anyway... Dance Recital day for DD2! 11am and 3pm.

I want to look at this week specials at the grocery and plan something special... probably for breakfast on Sunday. But then... DH have a class all week-end... so it might end up with Sunday's supper.

I'm surprisingly excited for Beltane, especially after brushing back up on some of the traditions. I will have to share with my mom the tradition of "mayday" bags was soooooo pagan (she's a methodist and takes my approach to religion in stride), and how we're going to do it with the boys this year.

If its not raining this weekend, I'm going to see if DH wants to help carve out an area in our backyard for a nice sized firepit. Our neighboors next door made one and its nice. Now I want one, with some loungy chairs to relax in once the boys are asleep in the summer.

DOK - I hope everything went well with the MRI. Re: full body scans - it would be just my luck something would pop up on it, then I would have anxiety about it. So I'm in the no camp and as long as I am still trucking along, I'm fine

I was there for 2 hours! They were so far behind, it was absurd.
I won't know anything until the 3rd.

I'm really annoyed that the spine specialist only ordered the mri for my neck. I was thinking they'd also check out where I was having the actual pain.

It's not fair that I have to wait a week for the results.

I have a question: If money was no object, would you get a full body scan? Many people are doing this if they have a family history of cancer or aneurysms. Or if they've been feeling ill for so long and docs can't figure out what's wrong.
Waiting DOES suck, but at least you're waiting for results and not to have the test right?

Me, I do not think I would get a full body scan. My family is FULL of diabetes (II), cancers (generally lung & colon, so VERY preventable by lifestyle) and heart disease. None of these things would show up before they were actually happening anyway, and almost every single one of them is something I believe I am preventing by living a healthier lifestyle than my family of origin They are EXTREMELY overweight southerners, who fry everything they eat, eat over half a pound of red meat at a meal, are not active, and most of them smoke. I on the other hand, use 250g (1/4lb roughly) of hamburger in spagetti to feed my whole family of 5, rarely eat a meal that is meat & veg (and when we do it's a smallish peice of meat and more veggies & grains by far), I do not smoke and do not hang out with smokers, I am active and rarely fry anything I figure, for me, that a body scan would be a big waste of my time.

I know that they don't do the reverse T3 test here, as the results aren't always reliable or something? But they do check the free T3 & T4, as well as TSH. My T4 is hovering at the lowest range of normal, but my TSH is high (and has been very high at times past .. which I did not know till now) I was SO happy to find out that my doc (well one of the 2 I see) was happy to do a trial run on synthroid if it comes back borderline again, instead of waiting for a totally outside the ranges result. I was afraid it would all be put down to me being plump

You can always do a vision board on the next new moon? I guess they don't pack the OOMPH that TM's due, whole aries new moon & all that, but you can still manifest things into your life!

Truly about your kids bikes too. Can dd's be repaired at all? My stepdad was the king bike fixer upper in our neighborhood growing up.. almost anything short of a broken frame can be patched up!

Actually it depends on where the pain is... but he might be doing exactly the right thing. A LOT of 'mystery pains' can be due to damage/pinched/inflamed spinal nerves. Here is a chart (scroll down a little bit to find it) .. if this is for your elbow pain, the last spinal nerve in the cervical region could be causing the issue. The body is such a weird thing.

Not much going on here... it's another long weekend here and . in that dh does not get holiday pay since he's self employed but that we get 3 days of family time. I would not be so irritable if it weren't like the 3rd one in a month!

Everyone went to bed around 9 last night except me.. I wandered outside and drank a lush hot chocolate with the moon. She was AMAZING last night It was actually a little brisk out so I had to take a blankie wrap My favourite kind of weather.

Yay for family time, Cari! Unfortunately, there is one bike fixer around here I found but it'd probably cost just as much to fix as to buy a new one. The whole gear/chain thingamabob broke off the tire part (can you tell how much I know about bikes?) and it's pretty screwed. And we have a bike outlet at the factory that makes them here, so it's probably just cheaper to get her another. I almost feel like the consequence should be "no bike" because she broke it after I kept telling her it'd break if she kept dropping it instead of using the kick stand. But I really like bike rides, so really it punishes me!

DOK-I don't think I'd get the full scan. It'd make me paranoid! I already have random aches and pains everywhere. I don't think I'd *want* to know.

liza-s-my family is from KY and we lived in NC and I've never heard anyone use "mash" for "push".

It wrecked our electric since I turned on every light in the house till dh got home three days later!

weather and wonkiness- very odd. Snow this morning, but probably in the 70s tomorrow! The wind is wild with leaves, branches, dust devils, and cloud shadows racing across the hill. There is a lot of visual "stuff" happening outside the window. BUT I keep thinking I see something out of the corner of my eye. Sometimes I think it's a big black dog, other times a person (man?) in a long dark coat (like a trench coat). When I turn, nothing is there. (I'm seeing this through the windows, not inside). I don't have a sense of negativity or anything from the "visual flicker", but every time it happens I think "is the door locked?", and I go and check. It's odd. Any thoughts? Like I said, I don't feel threatened by the flicker, but it's odd that it keeps happening and a bit unnerving.
on the Dr Who anxiety attack. Not laughing about the peripheral dark figure so much -- I'd be tightening my protections physically and spiritually. Sounds like a Samhain apparition, not so much a Beltane thing?

I personally prefer the summer solstice to Beltane. This climate is almost guaranteed to be too chilly to enjoy a holiday involving outdoor frolicks on May 1.

I don't actually own either of the Brooks books. I read them from the library last year, and got the free sample chapters on the kindle last night. I find myself browsing zombie novel sample chapters in moments of insomnia a lot, actually. Surprisingly, or not really , there are a lot of really *awful* zombie novels out there. I've never actually spent $$ on one. I figure at the first hint of actual zombie menace, but before power goes out, I'll order the Zombie Survival Guide for a refresher.

Sounds like a lovely visit with the moon, Cari! I will bundle up on Saturday night and hang out outside after the kids go to bed, weather permitting (dh still away, boo!)

I came in from an errand this eve to find my neighbor's black cat, named Lestat, curled up on my front door mat and we had a little chat. (If he were fat that would complete the phonics lesson, but he is not).

It surprises me to realize how clearly I understood that he was telling me that he hangs out in my yard in the evenings to warn that scrawny little calico newcomer who lives across the street away from the South Side of the Street, which is his (Lestat's) lawful territory by right of conquest. I told him he was welcome, please don't poop in the veggie garden, and thanks for keeping the rabbits away, Probably no surprise to those of you who own cats, but I'm inexperienced with them. Wow, they seriously *can* communicate!

Crossing fingers, lighting a candle for the job of your dh's dreams, Unschoolin'! Glad you are doing well!

I think I'd jump on the chance for an MRI -- I'd want a full one and a nice long consult to interpret it, though. Had to pack up all my kids today for a dr appnt to get some test results -- they were not the problem I was thinking -- a very happy surprise to me! Wishing you a similar feeling of relief on the 3rd, DoK

I know what you mean. I am afeard of accidentally moving to such a place.

That sucks about your kids' bikes, kittywitty.

at your being sandbagged, set up and suckered onto the PTA, sunshine! Those volunteer press gangs can be vicious when they scent someone with the talent to handle the money! Wishing you and your family ease for those various aches and pains.!

I think I just got suckered into volunteering for one of dd's things. I said once, to myself, that I should, and now it looks like I really will have to. Not a direct fulfillment of anything on the TM, unless it is in a general way....I think there are some people involved in that group that I am meant to know better.

Have fun at your dd's dance recital, Valérie! I will be at a conference all day -- doubt there will be a Maypole there, though you never know! Expect to meet at least one lady I've never met except for bumping into her online on a couple of unrelated forums for coffee at the break. Am really looking forward to that.

ETA can anyone here say off the top of her head which new moon/house/month would correspond to the Fame and Reputation bagua? I did not really address that area on my tm and I think I need to do some work there if I'm going to engage with my dd's activity as a volunteer. I'm always nervous about not being - well -- good enough -- around dd's friends' parents, coaches, teachers....I am realizing that I've been putting across an image of being very shy/ not well off/overextended there for years and need to address it to boost my confidence.

Wow.. they really DON"T make them like they used to, do they I don't think I ever used a kickstand on my bikes in my life and never had that thing break! If it was a case of being warned, and then continuing to do it anyway.. I'd agree that a little bikeless time isn't a bad idea to help them learn to be a bit more careful with their things.

It was And I had a chuckle about your description of your kitteh chat.. ALL of my cats have been like that. VERY 'talkative' .. I miss doing something and 'hearing' in my head.. what on EARTH are you doing!?! I could literally feel my cats thinking that at me One day, when I have my own house, I'll have a kitty again

Honestly, I think manifestation magic can work any time of the year. Our first real brush with it was last fall, when we wrote a list of what we needed to have happen: jobs, a roof over our heads, etc. And from the new moon to full moon in August(and a few days thereafter), boom boom boom. We had jobs, a new apt, and movers. So while it might not be at its greatest intensity, I really do think you can effect manifestation magic anytime. So don't let that stop you!

And I'm sorry about the bike thing, too. That does really stink, though let me also reiterate that some no bike time might be in order. hugs.

Come ponder with me about food!

Good Morning Mamas
I miss being here. It's continued to be a whirlwind of a time with being displaced from our home and other unexpected things like getting a new job and losing it 3 days before it began. It's been a time of hunkering down and coping, frankly. Luckily for me, these times also bring great appreciation for what I do have in my life, great family and community-just to mention a couple important ones. It looks like we might be able to move back into our home this weekend Which of course is Beltane, and also incidentally my birthday I love my birthday. I'm getting my hair cut and colored today which is a big treat, so things are turning around.

kittywitty-I usually do TM's during the Aries new moon, but this year it just could not happen. I'm doing one anyway-hopefully tomorrow for my b-day. I can't imagine anything but good could come from spending some time with myself to focus on what I really want-any time of the year.

I hope my life settles enough to be around a little more. I'm thinking of all of you wise women ~~~~Blessed Be~~~!

Not the grim! The flicker and feeling passed, not sure what was up with it... physically I'm sure it was leaves or dirt or shadow, but to consistantly interpret it is the same way/as the same shape puts it into the "message" category.

manifestation- Go for it! I think moonly maps and holy day maps and birthday maps all make perfect sense. And may be even better than the big treasure map in terms of keeping the energy fresh and the intent at the top of your mind. (boo hiss for the bike theft and breakagge though )

weather/holy day- well, we had 2 days of snow but today is sunny/70s and tomorrow should be too. We planted two cherry trees, two apple trees, and 6 raspberry canes last night but it really doesn't feel like spring. Or any specific season actually. Snow and 70s in the same week? It's just a jumble. I wanted to host a may pole celebration tomorrow, but the yard is a mess, the fire pit buried in construction debris, and the house is still not "additioned" so there is no interior space. Maybe I'll ask dh if we could focus on out of doors tomorrow, maybe move the firepit (it's too close to the addition) and trim back the underbrush? That way we could at least have a fire and the debris would be gone. Hmmmm... and maybe a small may pole using one of our older trees?

zombies- does anyone remember the zombie research earlier this year? An epidemiological study that used "zombie-ism" as the disease. It was a serious paper/study but done in a lighthearted manner. There is also a book that is a collection of research (serious/lighthearted) on the undead... zombies, vampires, etc. It was a fun collection!

dr. who- the Empty Child/Doctor Dances was one of the highest rated episodes on the fearsome foursome review site (love these kids and the minute by minute parental review) so I am not alone in my "lights on" response. Of all the episodes to watch alone in a big dark house! At least it wasn't Blink.

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

Thanks for that link. I do know that it could be a cervical spine problem but it could also be a problem in the spine a little below that. I get paid in the spine below that area and ends between my shoulder blades.

What he told me was this: "If it's not a problem with the cervical spine/nerve, then the pain can be from the rotator cuff injury or you have arthritis in the spine."

I asked him if arthritis would show up on the MRI and he said yes. I went on to give even more details of where the pain originates and I guess I just assumed he'd want to get a bigger picture.

Happy birthday Femme Rouge!

Just chatted with my mom who shared what they used to celebrate in school (mayday baskets, dancing around the maypole, and even a pagent) I informed her about the history and she was like "COOL! - who knew, we just liked the candy & dancing!"


In other news - the job I applied for has been taken down, and I have not heard a peep about it. I emailed the hiring manager to touch base, but I am pretty sure I didn't get it.

We under a tornado watch now until 8pm so I'm having fun watching the awesome power of the wind, but nervous if things get nasty.

TM movement- I was just gifted with SIX girlie chickens of a good egg laying breed (don't remember if she said Golden Comet or Golden Americuana?). Just ready to move into a coop, they were purchased to round out a flock but then one of the flock hens hatched out a dozen new chicks. So these guys were a bit over the top and in need of a new home. I guess I'll add "building a coop" to this weekend's to-do list! DD1 has watched these chicks since hatching, so she already feels a certain pride of ownership... she was beside herself when I said they'd join our homestead next week.

Okay, here's my updates, since I doubt I'll have much time to do so in the next several weeks.

Tomorrow I'm going to the city to hang with friends and do the Beltaine thing. Monday, I'm staying home to do last minute cleaning/organizing. Tuesday, I go in for my c-sec. I'm DEMANDING that I get to hold the baby immediately, so hopefully it won't be so emotionally icky this time. But I'm accepting much energy for going into labor before Tuesday.

After that, I'll be in maternity recovery for my six weeks.

See y'all after that!

I'm a witchy mama to DS ('06) and DD ('10) with DH, Stormie, a heathen homemaker daddy.

yay for chickens, boo for thyroids, fingers crossed for mri results & jobs & homes & safety & happiness!

kitty~ glad my astro musings helped!


aubergine~ yes, they're very communicative. i used to have 13, so.....
fame bagua... not sure about moons or months (do you have that link from camp? i can dig it up, i think, if you dont), but i'd go with solar plexus for sure. when i have situations like that, i wear some rose quartz at my sp and it helps. also that oil i got has helped with it a lot.

FR~happy birthday, sweetest one!!!! & ditto this: "I can't imagine anything but good could come from spending some time with myself to focus on what I really want-any time of the year."

KTG~ hope you found the slippers! i used to bake during warnings. (gas stove)

wolfcat~sending labor before tuesday vibes, and also wonderful supportive doc and nurse vibes, who give you the babe right away and never take him/her away! here's to awesome bonding, rockin' nursing, and getting out and home fast! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxoxooxox pm me if you need!

yeah for chickens!

we use to do the maypole dance at school back in oregon. and the kids and i would make may baskets for the neighbor back in tucson.

i think i should have added stable mama emotions to my tm! lol i am just not good with not sleeping one night a week and then listening to NPR on my way home. i was so mad when i got home i thought i might explode. lol

dh is sick again. i wanna pull my hair out. in the 18 months we have lived in maine he has been sick almost 15 times. it lasts about 5-10 days each time. UGH!

the little boys and i put the maypole together. so excited! we are going to celebrate on ds#4 birthday.
tomorrow we are all going to NH to stawbery banke ( http://www.strawberybanke.org/ ) it is the opening day for the summer season. AND before we go i am going to the farmer's market which is back on the farm again (in the winter it is inside). we are suppose to have nice lovely warm weather! WHOOPIE!

ahh, astrological insight! any of you read "planetary apothecary"? her word for the day (a few days ago, lol) was "integrate"....

ok, ok. i'm letting it soak. i think i'm turning into a prune, but i'm letting it soak............

Wow. That is a lot. Is it allergies maybe?

I'm so tired. I was going to junk out on popcorn and movie and ice cream, since DS is at an overnight with a friend, but I think I'll just go to bed and read myself to sleep.
I dipped to 178.4lbs this morning so I think I don't want to jeopardize that any more than I already have, what with all the pizza I ate today. Granted most of it was homemade, but still.

179 point something, this morning. Two days in a row under 180. It's so precarious! I want it to stay this way. My goal right now is to stay under 180. Then on to 177. Then I'll worry about lower.
