Looks like I need to put the stalking machine into high gear.

21 with two helpers (Me, Kerc, Kate~mom, drjen, pattiann, eksmom, geo, HBM, jaygee, and mamabeth).

I think I got everyone...If I missed anyone please post again or pm me? Wow 21 kids!! And I'm having my ds do it and he'll only be 18 mos old. It's not a "race" it's just something fun for the kids to do. I figure make it maybe a quarter mile and have at it! The bigger kids could always do another one that was longer and more competitive.

I agree with kate~mom - I prefer the sleeveless and lighter color. I can go with sleeves, but I really don't want a dark one. I would never wear it because of the heat. Is it me though or do all those sleeveless ones look really tight on the armpits?

After not having much discharge all day today, a big ol' glob just came out, enough so that I needed to make a special trip to the bathroom to deal with it.
That's the post that has everyone : right?

boy, that's kinda exciting. mine came out a day or two in advance.

btw - i'm totally in for a shirt this time. last year we had no money, but this year the universe has been giving us our share and I can get one. i mostly run in the woods, so any color goes. personally, i like sleeves. then i can run from work without having people ask me about my tattoo. and i hate it when people ask me about my tattoo.

In the Greens cookbook, there's an awesome spicy kale and potato soup. not really friendly for dc, but oh so yummy.

:


I forced myself to put my running shoes on this morning because I was going to the Y to lift weights. Holy smokes, those bruises on the top of my feet are killing me. The one on my left foot is the size of a half dollar. Owie. I limped all around the Y. I think I figured out why, too. I forgot that I got my orthotics recovered (had new foam put on because the old was about to fall off) on Thursday. I'm guessing that extra 1/8-1/4 " of foam is enough to push my foot up into the top of the shoe and cause pain. Not sure what to do about it. I think I have some really soft foam in my medical kit that I might be able to tape onto the tops of my feet and maybe help cushion it a little. If that doesn't work, I might have to run the half without my orthotics, which is probably a bad idea.


STBX is pissed off at me. Apparently he didn't get around to doing his expenses (to get reimbursed) and now we may not have enough money in our checking account to cover our mortgage payment. Why is he mad at me for this, you may ask? Because I had the nerve to do what he told me to do several months ago and get my own credit card, but I didn't tell him about it (not intentionally, just never came up/didn't think he'd care). So I paid off my balance on Friday and he didn't know why there was an "extra" payment to Amex which is apparently going to cause our financial downfall. Even though it's the SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY I would have spent using his card! I can't decide if he's more mad that I didn't tell him that I got my own card (which ok, maybe I should have, but HE TOLD ME TO) or that he no longer has access to see what I'm spending. I'm not trying to hide anything, honestly! I kind of think he's mad because I still have access to see what he's spending, although all he would have to do to change that is change his password. Grrrr. Now we "need to have a talk" this weekend. No $hit, sherlock. We haven't "talked" in like a month, since he was last having second thoughts (which I'm sure he's done having again). : So. Annoyed. Ok, sorry, enough of my novel...back to your regularly scheduled dingo programming...

Dude. If you go to Greens, DON'T order the kale. Yuck. Get the risotto.

Yeah, I'm on an anti-kale crusade.

We did have pumpkin soup a la kerc tonight.

You guys are cracking me up!!! Foil hats, lint kale.... I can't take much more.

Okay, I need an invite to the Dingo yahoo group. I def. want a shirt and don't want to miss out on things anymore.

I felt so good all day since I ran this morning. I went out with my mom and sister and 5 month old niece today. We went for lunch (where I didn't eat and fed the babe instead), and then I strolled her around the mall pretending she was mine. While I was gone, DH put our toilet in the 2nd bathroom as a surprise. Yay! I'm feeling so on top of things and ready for the New Moon to plant my seeds inside and make my treasure map with friends.

DH found an awesome cupcake recipe using m&m's so I just ate one and now I'm off to watch Jon and Kate Plus 8!

Can I have a Dingo Yahoo invite, too? I'll be in need of a motivational running shirt once the babe arrives. Or do they make them in maternity sizes? Ever noticed how maternity workout wear is . . . usually lame?

Dang, I never realized what it's like to be on this end of the stalking. I think I might have gotten y'all all worked up for nothing. : I've had a little bit more of the same gunk but I really think it qualifies more as heavy discharge than plug. DS has really been working on my cervix today; there was one time I swore I thought he was going to punch his little hand through. Otherwise nothing's going on except for enough BH ctx that I finally feel confident identifying them as such. I actually really have it in my head that there is no way I'll go into labor before 39 weeks.

Got home from bell rehearsal a little while ago; DH was putting EK to bed but she started hollering for me from her bedroom, so now I'm off to bed with her. Nighty night, y'all... you need some catchy name, like the Order of the Foil Hats or something.

That is such an excellent picture. What personalities!

We are still : over here, too. I'm so effin' sick of it, I can't even tell you.

I had an awesome massage tonight -- finally used my gift certificate from Christmas. She worked me over HARD on the shoulders/mid-back and was finally like, "Um, yeah -- you're not ready to let go yet." I think I need to get back on the regular massage bandwagon. I just wish they were cheaper! I LOVED my massage therapist in Okinawa -- $35/hour and she was the BEST. Consummate professional, darn good at the massage itself, and just way cool human being. Sniff. Good memories.

Well, time to knit or something!
