This format is new to me but I was thinking we could do a weekly thread where we can chit chat and talk about how we are feeling, what is going on in our lives, etc. Just get to know eachother better.

Btw, as I mentioned in the Who We Are thread I'm a big cryer while pregnant. Today in the car Stevie Wonder's song 'I just called to say I love you' had me weeping! LOL Something about going through all the months of the year and the holidays and the passing of time...I nearly lost it when he sang,
"No summer's high
No warm July
No harvest moon to light one tender August night
No autumn breeze
No falling leaves
Not even time for birds to fly to southern skies"

I asked dh if he thought it was a particularly moving song or are my pregnancy hormones already out of control. His reply, "I don't know--I've never listened to it long enough to say--I would change the station immediately if it came on." Bah! What does he know about good music?!

And here I sit weeping over the MDC writing groups posts...such amazing talents. ( http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=204268 )

So, what do you think about the weekly threads? ANyone can start them on Sunday or Monday morning??

Sounds good to me. I am not online much on weekends (never really) but if one isnt started by Mon. AM I can do it.

I have been particularly weepy too. I was like this with Maxi as well. But only CERTAIN things make me cry - like if I am confronted by someone or faced with a difficult situation I just start crying.

Like right now we are fighting with workmans comp over paying DH who was hurt playing and now they dont want to pay him. So the min. there was a problem what happened? I started crying - totally inappropriate and just, weak! I am so wishy washy now! That would never make me cry before.

I just done feel pregnant at all but when stuff like that happens I realize I really am!

I'd love to participate in weekly threads! I'm kind of new to this format, so I don't think I'd be a good one to start them though!
