Welcome to the October 2013 Dingo thread. run.gif



New visitors to the Dingo Thread may ask, "but, what is a Dingo?"



Dingoes are mamas (defined loosely, when needed) who run, walk, cycle, tri, and participate in whatever sport they need to sustain their awesome mama selves in lives that are definitely dynamic. Sometimes, a Dingo is injured, or life takes a turn, and she has to take a break from her chosen sport. Whether active or aspiring, Dingoes support one another in spirit. When two Dingoes are in the same place at the same time, something incredibly special happens. This is called a Dingo Meetup. They are relatively rare, and so we try to record them with photographic evidence.



Are you a Dingo? You just might be, if:

You sometimes perform acts of brilliance in order to squeeze a workout into a busy week.

You're never ashamed of coming in at the back of the pack, even if you're used to coming in faster.

You have found yourself sincerely respecting and admiring moms in all forms, observing how they're doing it for love, and growing from their experiences as well as your own



You won't know until you try, and all comers are welcome.

Oh wow, it's October. huh.gif Not only are my eyes twitchy, my shoulder has started twitching and I'm getting that run-down cough. Does anyone else have that happen to them or should I be worried it's something else? Strike that. Not worrying.

If you didn't see it, I posted just this morning in the last thread a reply to Geo, JayGee, my new dh experiment and thoughts of our Dingo sister. heartbeat.gif

Nickarolaberry 10-01-2013 09:42 AM

Hi mamas. Subbing. Thinking of you and your dh, JayGee. Trying to explain this to my 10th graders without being too...let's just say...POLITICAL about it. :eyesroll

 

Anyway, back still uncomfortable so no running for me (yet) today.


sparkletruck 10-01-2013 09:50 AM

Lofty - You are stressed. My eyelid starts to twitch when I'm stressed, and I'm guessing your cold is related as well greensad.gif Also, I love what you are trying to do with Dh, but I think much of the frustration, at least in these parts, is that I have to A. discern the need for that kind of intervention, B. figure out what should be done, C. enact it, and last but not least D. hope that he has the emotional insight to be aware of his own feelings and the causes of them so that he can begin to communicate. It's the D. that I think is the biggest obstacle here. On the plus side; my Dh is alarmingly good humored almost all the time. He is a Zen idiot who just chooses to focus on the positive and cant understand why everyone doesn't do the same. I have never dealt with his moods or stress or anything, which, considering that I have those in spades sometimes, makes for a functioning family. However, the idiot part is that he diesnt understand those moods and doesnt know what to do with someone who has them (besides ignore them and wait for it to be over). Like JG, I feel very alone when these things happen, and since it has been so bad this year, we have had a lot of distance and resentment. I'm feeling the need for less good moods from him and more depth/breadth of feeling. And then I'm the emotional f*** up and he's the emotional golden boy. Meanwhile, I am the one anticipating everyone's emotional and physical needs (I find the resources and read the books about Ds and then get Dh up to speed on our approach, for example), making everything happen in everyone's life in this house, etc. b/c I'm the one who has that radar from personal experience... I wish someone would do it for me sometimes... which is why him helping me with the research really helped ... It's a work in progress ...

Lofty - :HugThat's so hard mama.  And I'm sure the fallout of watching such a vibrant woman go downhill so fast will play out for a while.  On dh "use your words honey".

 

Real - That man certainly keeps you on your toes.  You are amazing.

 

I've got to get back to working but wanted to just send out some :goodvibesfor JayGee and everyone else who is dealing with rocky roads today.


JayGee 10-01-2013 01:27 PM

lofty - yeah, if it was PAID leave, I would be dancing around like it was Christmas. But sadly, it's not. Thinking of your MIL hug.gif.

DH went to the commissary to stock up after he got his notice today. Apparently, the commissary is shutting down tomorrow too, so they were having a huge sale on all perishables. My freezer is so stocked with meat, it's amazing!

I'm running the oven cleaning function on our oven today (for the first time since we moved in 3 years ago bag.gif) and boy, does it stink!

loftmama 10-01-2013 02:36 PM

JG, glad you found out about the commissary in time!!!

Sparkle, there's no easy answer is there? No formula? It's just hard, dammit.

Plady, thanks for the answer: use your words, honey. Simpler is better and I like that. I also like what someone else said (Towson?) "Read the room."

Really shouldn't be here. I've been making medication spreadsheets all morning. "Neccessary." "As needed." "Use when..." Plus others... At least I'm getting my spreadsheet fix, right?

MelW 10-01-2013 09:01 PM

Lofty, I like the idea of practicing/teaching to verbalized feelings. I'm (mostly) fortunate to be married to the son of a narrative therapist, so he's good at using his words. A common theme in my life when with a group of women: they talk about their husband's lack of communication, I complain that I wish mine would just keep it to himself a little bit more. The grass is always greener, right?

Sparkle, I learn so much hearing your perspective on your relationship. I'm the zen one here. I like to think I'm understanding, and certainly work to pick up slack when my partner struggles, but sometimes I feel a need to ignore/avoid for fear of getting dragged down into the pit of gloom. I also think that the love languages stuff really applies to us- I'm absolutely an "acts of service" person, and often respond to his struggles with nice meals and mowing the lawn, when he'd prefer quality time and conversation. Meanwhile, I can be found out running his mail to the post office.

JayGee, good luck with the furlough. Way to stock up!

I picked up a 12 hour shift on Sunday, and then we had a huge storm and power outage at home. It was a slow windy/rainy drive home, then a candlelit evening in bed. Otherwise I'm busy but not swamped with school and work. I got an A+ on my first health promotion paper, and have my first epidemiology/biostats exam on Friday.

My oldest is doing the "30 days of yoga challenge" on YouTube, which is a series of 20 min yoga videos. I'm trying to join her as much as possible.

tjsmama 10-01-2013 09:08 PM

Subbing.

I called in sick to work tonight. bag.gif In my defense, I do have a raging UTI, and my PA mommed me into it...and legitimately, I do pretty much feel like crap. I just feel kind of bad calling in for a UTI, especially when we're crazy busy, you know? But on the other hand, I slept all day yesterday, went to bed at 9pm last night, took a four hour nap today (two hours each before and after my doctor appt) and am ready to go to bed again at 9pm. So, I guess I really am sick?

rr~ROTFLMAO.gif I was going to try to run 6 miles today. Or failing that, to go to spin class. Instead, see above. Sigh. We'll see how I feel tomorrow, I guess, but I may not get anything but my 14 mile long run in this week, if that. On the bright side, it IS a drop-back week...I just don't think they meant to drop back THIS much. rolleyes.gif

mel38~Can you put the Colorado Marathon 1/2 marathon on the race list for me? May 4, 2014.

Realrellim 10-01-2013 09:32 PM

lofty--your method makes perfect sense and should work. You've also hit the problem on the head. Anyhow, I think the therapist suggested something similar. It requires work on DH's end that he hasn't been willing to do, but hopefully your DH will respond more positively (and likely will). On a different topic, I"m sorry about your MIL. That is what I understand about those situations and yes, it's very hard. About the cough, I get it when my asthma is acting up. Usually it's related to a cold or allergies; sometimes it's definitely connected to stress. Stress can inflame the body, so I don't think it's unusual, though clearly not optimal.

Nic--hope your back is better soon.

MelW--I'm laughing about the grass is always greener.

RR: need to run and do not want to. Apparently this is the way Tuesdays go.

NRR: Lots of things are flying through my head but I'll settle on this one: the Jessica Ridgeway trial was set to begin Thursday. Today Austin Sigg decided, against the advice of his lawyers, to plead guilty. Obviously, that's a good thing and it will save both families the pain and horror of a trial. It wasn't even a plea bargain, just him pleading guilty to all of it. He had said that he would. And he did. And if you ever want to think about something that completely messes up the way we want to think about the nature and good and evil, there it is. It would be so much easier to think about him like I think about oh, Ted Bundy, as all-monster. But monsters don't lie on their mother's bed, waiting for mom to come home so they can confess. It's more like Dostoevsky than Law and Order, and so much more tragic and harder to reconcile. I guess it leaves me wondering, once again, about the capability every one of us has inside us to be evil or good, or both.

It will have been a year on Saturday. For her and her family, and for his. candle.gif

sparkletruck 10-02-2013 11:09 AM

Real - I have had similar thoughts about sanity as you describe about the capacity for good and evil. Having come to the line where I can feel the wind from the butterfly's wing of insanity (I read that somewhere and thought it was pretty accurate), I am much more empathetic and moved by others suffering. Sanity is taken for granted, and insanity is marginalized as other b/c it is so terrifying to think of how easily something so awful can happen (and then be regretted) - physically or mentally - to us or our loved ones. Anyway candle.gif for them all

MelW - I think of your situation a lot too - it gives me insight into how hard it must be for Dh. I suspect you are a little more aware and a little more helpful, but I think my Dh is coming a long (what choice does he have redface.gif). I am very much an "acts of service" kind of person as well, and he is a hug-will-help person. I was able to help a friend last week when I ran into her after school pick-up at the bookstore with our kids and she was having a wreck of a day, and I wasnt. One of the windows of light in her life is the potential to start grad school in the spring; I asked what was happening with her app. She said she has to call and track it down but hasnt been able to, so I said I would. She ended up with the name and number of the proper person to talk to and got it sorted (I also took her son with me for the afternoon and then took her and him out to dinner). I mention that b/c I knew that sometimes even making a bureaucratic phone call is just too much, but I dont know if my Dh realizes how much something seemingly so small can help. he does now b/c he saw me do it winky.gif Anyway, I have other thoughts but Ill pm you

Gaye - you do sound sick and you should rest! Im sorry things are crazy at work and you feel bad about it, but rest. goodvibes.gif

JG - thinking of you during the furlough

JayGee 10-03-2013 06:43 AM

Safe travels, Jooj! Hope Paris was great smile.gif.

Heading out for a bike ride this morning. It's been a couple of weeks since I've been able to bike with my friend, so I'm looking forward to it.

NRR - DH home again. This furlough crap better end soon. We're going to run out of money eventually. Although I really do like having him around during the day mischievous.gif!

Mel38 10-03-2013 07:47 AM

wave.gif Happy travels, Jo!

 

JG - so sorry about all the trouble and stress this shut-down is causing! Yay for a full freezer, though, and try to enjoy some family time for a few (hopefully not too many more!) days.

 

MelW -  congratulations on your A+!! And the 30 day yoga challenge sounds neat.

 

Real - What a troubled and complex person. It's hard to even think about him as a son, and about his mother. It sure doesn't fit my idea about what he was and what motivated him. Very sad time for the victim's family.

 

Lofty - I'm so sorry to read about your MIL. I hope you get some swimming in during this stressful time. BTW, your description of how blissful the swimming felt lately really has me yearning to get back in the pool. Thanks for that.

 

Nick - how is your back? Have you heard from our Dingo friend lately? Just wondering how things are going...

 

Gaye - I've got you down for that race. I hope you are feeling better today! Best to rest and not drag out the infection, give yourself time to heal really well. You've got a marathon coming up :wink

 

I missed all of September, but have been reading and trying to catch up. All I can say is, this school year has been challenging so far. I have reached a point where I know that I need to seek out professional help for DS, at least to begin by getting him an official diagnosis. I know so many of you have been down this road before, and - without going into too much detail today - let me just say that I'm so happy to have you guys there in case I need help, direction, shoulder to cry on, whatever. :grouphug


Nickarolaberry 10-03-2013 08:17 AM

My back is on the mend. I ran on Tuesday and am hoping to get one in today. I registered for another half, on November 10th (Monson Memorial Classic Half Marathon).

 

Our friend up north is hanging in there, despite expected (but still really :angry) challenges designed to undermine her will and confidence in herself. She is safe and I'm sure would appreciate continued prayers, support, and good wishes flowing her way.

 

I am also dealing with a ds who is totally miserable at school, and probably should be evaluated (at least for my own peace of mind) and I'm not sure if dh will go for that. :irked I am starting the district paperwork anyway and we'll see what happens. I don't think where he is now is a great place for him, but unfortunately my options are very limited and not altogether different except in size. Bleh.

 

Dh got a job. Did I mention that? It's nearby. So we're here, for the foreseeable future. Not altogether sure how I feel about that but at least the kids are happy with the stability.


Plady 10-03-2013 08:58 AM

Mel38 - :grouphug We're here.

 

Gaye - yes, rest!  Anyway, you always seem to do best on interrupted training right?

 

Jo - Oh lalala!  Safe travels today, I hope you'll have some chances to check in from the next stage in your journey.

 

JayGee - I can't stop thinking about you and everyone else thrown into limbo.  Hoping for a speedy resolution.

 

Nic - Congrats on the Providence half.  I think your time is a great one, especially if you were chatting the whole way!  Glad dh has a job, does that reopen any options for you?

 

MelW - A+!  Nice job!  Way to lead the pack!  I'm very interested in all the talk of carers vs. caretakens and love language types.  I love that we've got a range of representatives here too.  I was chuckling at your thought that you sometimes wish dh would just shut up about feelings already though, that's got to be a rarer issue among wives. 

 

Sparkle - Thinking of you, hoping that worse doesn't come to worst.

 

Real - :Hug  and :goodvibes for a sense of closure for all concerned, you included.

 

Had Shanti Chicken for dinner last night, sending thoughts and prayers her way.


Runningmommy 10-03-2013 12:25 PM

I am sorry about the kiddos needing diagnosed and for the mamas needing a hug and understanding.

 

RR: none this week but have plans on getting in yesterday's 7 miler at some point today.  Have had something every day and night this week and I am worn out.

 

NRR:  went to lawyer about being sued and the bottom line is that three of the violations will be easy and one costly and lengthy.  The good part is that we don't have to cut our vacation in half as the lawyer can move the court date.  Bad news is lawyer is 3 grand and the varience is about the same amount.   sigh.  Two kids start braces this month (2 plus years for each of them and follow up for another 4 years) at around 9 grand.  THANKFULLY our new insurance will cover orthodontics at 50% (lets hope there is no cap!!!!).  Dh lost an aunt and an uncle the last week.  Can you say overwhelmed and need a vacation!!??

 

shoot just looked at the clock and it's time to pick up ds2 from school already!!


Geofizz 10-03-2013 12:36 PM

Mel & Nic, please let me know if I can help with any direction on testing.  As I've mentioned, I've amassed enough experience to write a book.  I'm always happy to help a dingo.

 

Congrats on the stability Nic.  I hope this job sticks.

 

Lisa, so glad you got the legal things on the right path.  Sounds pricey and expensive.

 

We're going to RadioLab tonight.  Anyone listen?  I can't wait.


sparkletruck 10-03-2013 01:11 PM

Yay. Im glad to see this, even if its a "no, duh" kind of thing. Apparently scientists have found that reading literature (as opposed to non-fiction, or cheap lit.) increases reader's empathy. Must get DD1 to stop reading so much lit. and find some literature for ds other than sci-fi...

RM - goodvibes.gif

Nic and MelW38 - If comic relief ia any help, my Ds, on monday, wrote in chalk in front of the door to his classroom (ie, in the walkway/doorway outside his class): "You suck Mr. Teacher's Name! I hate you!" bag.gif The teacher was kind enough to take a corroborating picture to include in his email to me redface.gif

Mel38 10-03-2013 02:55 PM

RM - yikes, what a lot of cash all at one time :( So sorry about all the stress going on right now. I hope you still got your run in.

Thank you for the link - very interesting!!

 

:lol about your DS's note to the teacher.

 

Thanks, Geo! If you weren't always so busy, I would say heck yes, you should write a book! At least Navigating the Education System For Dummies, or Advocating for Your Child 101 :)

Or Toni Morrison?  :mischief

 

Groan on your DS' writing.  At least he chose chalk.

 

Radio Lab this evening.  One friend is cancelling because his DS got sent home early from school for misbehavior.  Something's going around.


loftmama 10-03-2013 06:36 PM

Swam today. Was awesome. Got in a full hour and pushed myself since it's been a while. Hope to get in a 2nd one this week. Glad I did, because...

Dh is stressing me out. He came home from his mom's and crapped all over me. So much for my (read sarcastically) good intentions. I snapped. That's 4 in less than 3 weeks and apparently I can't do anything right. soapbox.gif

Nickarolaberry 10-03-2013 06:49 PM

Oy, Lofty. :HugBummer. You are the crap-catcher for the stressed out and devastated but it doesn't make it any easier. This, I know.

 

Speaking of crap-catching, I went on a late evening run because I was so pissed off at dh for leaving a mess etc. etc. (also my parents are coming for a visit which always stresses me out). I guess the mad helped because I flew through the 6.2 miles in under 58 minutes, and slowed at the end only because it got dark very all of a suddenly and I was afraid I would face plant on the uneven sidewalk in the shadows. Odd that I frequently run in the dark in the early a.m. and have no problem seeing but at twilight it was much harder. Also I didn't have my safety gear with me (reflective vest, hat, flashlight) because I don't think I realized how quickly night would fall.

 

Anyway. Going to be soon.


kerc 10-03-2013 07:57 PM

goodness lofty. work in more swimming!  I wish I could come and ease some of the daily life for you. Supportive measures are really hard to do.

 

on therapy for kids:  my experience is n=1. But goodness, if you're a thinking mama, and can find a therapist that fits, well hey they become an expert and man it's worth seeking them out.

 

on work for the last two days. I'm currently (behind the scenes) looking for a new job. I serve on the U of Wisconsin system commitee on Women and Science. Today I received an email posting of an article from the NY Times Magazine that was titled something like "Why aren't there more women scientists?"  And hey, the last 23 hours at my job have played into every damn reason she cites in the article. Do you cry? Do you say f' it, I'm more than that? 


tjsmama 10-03-2013 08:28 PM

Safe travels, jo!

nic~Glad DH found a job. Sorry you're stressed out, but awesome run!

melw~Way to go on the A+

rm~glad the lawyer had semi-good news for you, but sorry you've got so many expenses coming up. Ouch.

Everyone else~wave.gif and hug.gif

I finished my three days of antibiotics tonight and feel a bajillion times better. I may have slept another 10 hours after calling in sick Tuesday night and then slept 7 hours in between dropping DS off at school yesterday and picking him up, so yeah, I guess it was legit. bag.gif On the bright side, I had a pretty good night at work last night for the first time in quite a while, and kind of had enough energy to chaperone the all-day second grade field trip today on no sleep. Oy. Yeah, that was fun. All was (tired, but mostly) well until we got to the last stop and one of the little girls had a pukey tummy...being the nurse, I got elected to escort her to the bathroom and keep her company, which was fine except that when she felt better (and was immediately my bff because I "fixed" her tummy orngtongue.gif), we ended up in a different group from DS, who was upset...even though I had been with him the whole rest of the field trip. Sigh. Here's hoping that next field trip is either scheduled for when I'm not working or is sent home with enough notice for me to request off, because seriously sleeping.gif right now.

rr~Ha. I WILL run 14 miles tomorrow. Regardless of what looks like some rain/snow awesomeness rolling into town. Yippee.
