DVDs for me? I dream of the day! Right now Blue's Clues is keeping the girls amused while I sort paper in the kitchen and Tor.... hmmmm... Tor is eating crumbs off the kitchen floor.

I'm gonna go now...

So the car is FINE! I need to get a hose replaced, coolent just topped off, and had my windshield was on backwards (blush)...too a little over an hour and cost under $130 for everything! I love my mechanic.

I bought my ferret baby girl a ferret dress. She's so cute in it. ds's bright blue guitar came in today and I was able to get it and sneak it into the house before he saw it.

Dh bought himself DJ Hero and I know it's wrong but he's awful at it! LOL! But because of his awfulness the kids are cracking up which makes me smile. I spent under $100 on groceries and decided that peanut butter/chocolate is going to turn into a peanut butter/ chocolate cheesecake!

I have eaten at all yet and I've been out since 7am. I came home to do that and some schoolwork and then I'm back out to get the balloons, candles, and make my tatoo appointment. Then I should be done for the day!

Hope all is having a good one.

Did you notice that bed is six freakin' grand??? For a bed. Yowsa. If I had 6 grand I'd be paving my driveway.

I don't want it in black cause I'd spill stuff...I'd do that anyway. I'm just, well, the goth in me still hasn't gone away, I guess; I'm still more comfortable in black than anything else. Even if I do wear colors now and then

So my kid is staying overnight at a friend's house; I have the whole quiet house to myself. This almost never happens. So where's M? Hanging out with a friend, so no uninterrupted phone calls

Mmm. MLS cruising. Haven't done that for about oh, a week or so. My latest thing is looking for inexpensive tiny homes on good semi-rural acreage locations where I could use the house for cooking/laundry/bathing and put up a yurt addition for me --er -- I mean, for the kids to use for a bedroom. The Yurtlady commented in the yurt thread in the country living forum here a few days back that she thought it was a great idea. I was so excited. It means that yurt living is meant to be in my future.

Sunshine, there should be yurts in your nature centre, I think!

And definitely, yurts on the beach!
I told my husband that if we ever separate/divorce, I would demolish the crumbling cabin we have on the other side of our 5 acres and live there in a yurt so the kids could freely come and go between mom's and dad's.

See? That's what I thought, but I'm not sure. It shouldn't be on my credit report, but...on the other hand, I'd like it taken care of.

Come ponder with me about food!

Well, but can't you check the credit report? I mean...you've decluttered the thing; what's done is done. But there has got to be a way to find out if it's been cleared up or not. You'd think.

Dang, I'm lonely. I didn't realize how much I've come to depend on talking to M every night

Mai-It's adorable clothing for pet ferrets and it's a pink tutu dress for her.

Appointment is scheduled for April 21st, but they told me there will probably be a cancellation and get me in earlier than that! Also, got a Madison piercing today. I'll get pics later.

Now I have to finish some homework and then relax with either a book to read or some writing.

Oh my! How well do you heal? Or is this a short term piece? All the folks I know with Madisons have pulled them after a few months... but admittedly I only know 3 or 4 people who had them. My old house was across the street from a wonderful body art shop and it was fun the hang out there with the kids. Actually, it was a very kid friendly shop and they sometimes hosted art shows there too. (they moved shortly after we did, but they just moved down the block. Here they are. Love them!)

weather- more snow coming tonight. bleh!

weekend plans- really really really want to get the wiring done. There's a bday party for one of dd1's friends but with tor and I still sick, I dunno. We tried to go shopping today and it was a true fail.

ok, that beach bed is AWESOME!
i have wanted to live in a yurt since i was a kid. we had friends who lived in a yurt while they built their house. (they also raised chickens, goats, had 10 acres, grew their own food.)
decided not to order in food, because i didn't work, got canceled again. so i made some serious yumminess with sweet potatoes. i love making stuff up and it tastes good. lol

we are watching an old star trek movie: the voyage home. and the new doctor who. (after the littles go to bed)

have a great weekend!

I actually heal really well, but my piercer will be keeping an eye on me. So we'll have to see.

Nah, I got brave and did it. It's a surface piercing sideways through the lower neck skin. There's a good pic on Wiki.

I want to get more holes in my ear-- I have some high up and some lower, but there's a big space in between that needs filled in. I think I'll have to go to one of those cheapo places like Piercing Pagoda, though, cause I just don't have the money to get them "really" pierced.
I want an eyebrow piercing. DS thinks it will look awful. Am I too old, do y'all think? Is there an age limit for piercings?

Madisons aren't scary! (well, not unless you have a baby/toddler who is in the "grab the shiny thing" phase) They just don't heal very well in general.

I would say there is no age limit on body art, but there should be age limits on the jewelry/images maybe? I know people in the "corporate goth" and "business steampunk" categories. They maintain a personal style that works for them but also fits into other settings. A piercing or tattoo can fit into any style, you just have to pick the right image or jewelry! So maybe a small ring just slightly different than your brow color, or matching the color of eyeglasses/watch/accessory worn frequently? Or a subtle blue/gold/silver/rainbow shimmer on a slim barbell... maybe with birthstone caps or other small but meaningful stones?

A hot pink stripped ring with dangling baubles might look a little off. But you never know. If you really want that, then give it a try! The nice thing about piercings is that (for the most part) if you don't like it you can take it out.

I really want to get my nose pierced. After Gillian pulled mine out and I couldn't get it back in, I figured I would wait until we were out of the pulling shiny metal things stage. I imagine I am there, maybe for next years birthday. I have been doing lots of new things this year, actually, come to think of it, I really have broken out of my old me mold in some ways.

I agree, Clay, about the no age limit but I find myself trying to balance what is accepted in general society and my desires. I don't really care if people judge me because of piercings but I deal with such a wide group of people, I feel like i need to appear neutral at times.

I feel like I am so out there as it is, in my religious beliefs not to mention my political and social beliefs, I am afraid a piercing would just push me into "that weird women, who homeschools and is a hippie" category but still, I am that weird hippie who homeschools. hehe

I think we are going to take the kids to How to Train a Dragon.

Hey all. Had a good birthday for a change! DH got me a new fairy statue, DS got me a new set of gaming dice and dd got me a lovely outside decoration of the sun and moon with green crystals. I got the t-shirt in that I've been wanting for 3 months (it's completely tacky, but for some reason I just LOVE it!! Got it in pink no less. Says "Freya, Goddess of Love and War. If you lay 'em slay 'em" Teehee!). Today I think we're going to go see How to Slay a Dragon. Then the rest of the birthday money I got will go to bills, but I'm good with that.

Haven't done any decluttering. After being sick for 2 months with bronchitis and then being down for a couple weeks so far with this blasted shoulder thing, I'm just trying to get on top of the laundry and house!! If I can do that, I'll be happy.

Went to fire circle last night. Not a good night there for us. One couple usually always hosts it, so it was at their house. They were having a birthday party for their 10 yr old at the same time. The dad told our kids to go join in, and I confirmed about 15 min later with the mom that it was ok for them to be joining it. Our kids are younger and they weren't invited, so I didn't expect them to really be involved, but the mom had commented a couple times that she'd found a way to integrate the party with the fire circle, and was pretty adamant that our kids were welcome as well. Which was all fine and great until it came time for a game and she gave glow sticks to all the kids but mine, telling them they were too young to play. Seriously, why not send them back to us BEFORE you start the game? DS was crushed. Then the person that I was supposed to plan the Beltane ritual with agreed to plan it with someone else (after telling her that I was supposed to help plan it!). So definitely an off night. Meh, they happen.

Off to try to clean house then to a movie then gaming tonight, so a full plate. Tomorrow we just have the kids Irish Dance lessons, so it'll be an easy day.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hmmmm... I'm not finding pics, though I'll keep looking. Are people familiar with corporate goth? It's a nice group of people, and an example of "growing up" a subculture. I tend towards steampunk and sca so I borrowed fashion ideas for creating a work look... first in graphics at a very "corporate" firm in Boston, then as a lab manager/instructor in a dust/dirt intensive field, then as a "face of the library" role where looks were very regulated. I know some very elegant, pulled together, professional people with facial piercings. I don't know if I could pull it off, but they managed to blend eyebrow or nose piercings into the look without drawing attention to them.

I'll keep image hunting.... though now I was another piercing! Not till Tor is older though.

ETA- a nice tragus piercing, and the folks I know have this style of eyebrow piercing, only a bit more subtle with smaller caps that blend into their brow more. (they can swap caps... subtle at the library, fancier at home)

I know it has a high rejection rate, but usually so do the dermal anchors, which mine is healing just wonderfully! So we'll see.

I agree, there really is not age limit. My piercer is in her late 30s and still gets them. Their beautiful.

Clay, I almost got the tragus. It was between that and my Madison. I will probably do the tragus later. I get ansy when I sit in the shop and know I NEED to get something done.

On an even wonderful note..today is Ds's 5th birthday!!! I can't believe that my baby is already 5. He loves his guitar and I have both a pic and a video of him with it on fb.

I did have one question. What age should a child be when you stop giving them gifts during their siblings birthdays? Dd will be 7 this year in October and I still gave her a little gift today so she wasn't upset when ds got his present.

But when should we start explaining to her that it's his day?

Good selling vibes to you!

Happy 5yr Birthday!

Hmmmm... I'm trying to remember what my parents did and I don't remember ever getting a gift on my brother's bday (or vice versa). Our trad was the bday kiddo got to pick dinner, and there was a party of some sort, and mom got a gift too. But I do give my own kiddos smaller "sibling" gifts. I don't know when that will stop. Maybe around ten or so?

Mike is wiring, and building the interior wall to turn the addition into two seperate rooms! Once the interior wall is framed we'll figure out where to wire the ceiling light boxes. The thought of a children's room with toy storage (and a door that can be closed ) is making me giddy!

A piercing or tattoo can fit into any style, you just have to pick the right image or jewelry!

I was thinking of something more subtle, actually...like the ring ones on this page: http://tattoo.about.com/cs/pbrow/l/blpgaleyebrow.htm

I don't work outside the home, but I will have to get a job soon to keep my CNA certification current. Someone told me I can work PRN somewhere, then quit when I get a nurse to sign me off. That sounds not-kosher to me, but I have to get signed off, so we'll see. I may still work a little bit.
At any rate, I can wait till this summer or so.
M and I have pretty much decided on finger-ring tattoos, so that'll probably come first Then maybe the ears, then maybe the eyebrow. Dunno yet. Then maybe the other two tats I have coming

Then the person that I was supposed to plan the Beltane ritual with agreed to plan it with someone else (after telling her that I was supposed to help plan it!). So definitely an off night.
Ye Gods, how rude!

On an even wonderful note..today is Ds's 5th birthday!!!

I did have one question. What age should a child be when you stop giving them gifts during their siblings birthdays?
I'm 50, unschoolin'. I look 35, but still. I still want one!
Happy birthday to your ds!

Ten, Clay, really? I'd say....four My ds does not have siblings, but I used to get him little things when we went to his friends' parties. I did stop doing that around age 4, and just explained to him that it's <insert child's name>'s day. We had to do that shopping for the gift, and then wrapping the gift, and then giving the gift ("Remember? it's so-and-so's birthday, so it's their present. On your birthday you will get the presents."). So it was a lot of coaching, and a lot of repeating, but it paid off

interesting about the sibling gifts. i have never done it, and my kids have been fine. we just sort of let them know that it was so and so's birthday and when it was their birthday they would get the same sort of celebration. we also have the birthday child pick out all the meals and cake.


reading a really great book: "Full Moon Feast". really great recipes and just great stuff by the author.

also feeling like i am going to lose my mind with dh. i am so tired of always having to pull him up and always be support and not have it given back to me. dh was freaking out about his PhD, and how much it was going to cost, so i have to sit and talk for HOURS with him and calm his fears and tell him it is just money and we will make it work, it isn't a big deal. then we get a medical bill (which i will have to fight with the hospital and insurance about on monday... lovely) he starts freaking out and wants to sell his bike, ok sell it, i told him we don't need the money, but he doesn't ride it and it is about the time people start pulling out bikes here, so it would be a good time to sell it. then he freaks and doesn't want to sell it. i am just so done with this. blaaah! do what you want! go to school, don't go. sell your bike, keep it. get another job, keep this one. just make up your mind! agh! i did tell him that if he sold the bike it could pay for my CBE thing in october. but he was still all wishy washy. i guess that is part of it. i am always super supportive and i just feel like i don't get that back. i am the one who deals will 90% of all the stuff here, and i just want some one to pat my hand and calm my fears. i am just worn out. frick!

i, who have no tatts and no piercings, suddenly, out of nowhere, last month, decided i wanted a nose piercing. i wont do it, as i'm a whimp, but i can sort of imagine. you can get such subtle ones that are really elegant and classy, imo.

~~happy one day closer to TM time, all! between you all and our beach escape, and some oils and RR room spray, and some gardening, and some kismet moments, i'm feeling a ton more hopeful... things are brewing, and given that article i keep talking about (about the full-moon seed planting for the new moon), it's feeling like TM time will be... interesting... sending like-wise vibes to all!

aweynsayl: you can get "clip on" nose rings. they are cool and you don't have to experience the pain. lol

i had a belly ring for years, then when i was PG with ds#4 it got really irritated and infected so i took it out. i have been toying with the idea of getting another, but it HURT for months and i don't know if i want to deal with that now. plus, so much MRSA in the hospitals, i am not thinking i want an open wound in my belly. lol i do want more tats. i love those. i wish i was an artist so i could draw and then post a picture of what i want on my back. lol

I have to vent if that's okay.

My mother and family have always hated me since my birth. Pretty much, I came late in my mother's life and she blamed me for my father leaving, then turning my older siblings to believe the same.

I try to keep from talking with her to avoid her toxic nature when complaining about me, but I don't want her missing out on her grandchildren. I have the whole, if you keep yourself out of their life, then you deal with the consequences, but I will not be the reason for it. That being said, ds kept asking why mom-mom hadn't called.

I finally called her around 4 and told her, "mom, it's Lu's birthday today." You know what she said? "Oh, I forgot all about him. I'm pretty sure the family did too." Did she say happy birthday after being reminded? No. She went on to complain about how the way I feed my kids (no processed meals, lots of water, etc.) was abuse and yada yada. She also forgot dd's birthday last year.

There's so much more but my goddess! How do you forget that and then not say anything even after being reminded? He was sad after she hung up but we cheered him up right away.

ohhh, spock as god. lurve it. i loved the new trek movie. loved loved it.

cari & aubergine, it's so fun looking for fun, but looking for real... man, it's soul crushing. i keep telling DH: "i just wish we had enough money to buy a house that is fit to live in-- or to fix one up." ... but we just have enough $$ to buy one that needs fixing.... and not $$ to fix it, only, it's not really funny.

I lURVE Tainted Love :dance Liked the new Trek movie too Aweyn, my BIL is a purist and thinks it is a vile creation

If you think it sucks for you hun.. try doing it when even a basic house costs 300k plus! I found the cutest 3br place that was 249k (did I share that?) but we can't even get a loan for at least 4more months. I know places will be out there though.. we'll find one when it's the right time for us!

I think we are going to take the kids to How to Train a Dragon.
I had my nose peirced years ago, and think about getting it done again. Maybe one day

ENjoy the movie, I've heard rave reviews from friends about it!

Off to swimming lessons & a visit with Nan afterwards

Ugh. I have a toxic father who's never met my DD, and I haven't seen him since 2003 as it's just easier that way. Anyway, I sympathize. I just don't understand why people need to be nasty like that.

Come ponder with me about food!
