Here I am checking in. G is napping and should wake up soon so my time may be short.
Sherri-whoa. Red nail polish! G dropped a bottle of my red polish in our Texas bathroom right before we listed it! Luckily, it was tile, though the white grout was a bugger to clean. Glad yours finally came out
And, bummer that Grey's Anatomy was a re-run! That's one of my new fave shows...guilty pleasures.
Oh, and yay for the house offer. That's wonderful!!!
We had our first snow here yesterday morning. I'd say about 4 inches on our deck, less other places. I took G outside to play in it, but he wouldn't wear gloves or his new boots, so he ended up with cold fingers and wet feet. We promptly went to Target and got a pair of Ladybug rain boots he said we needed to take home and a couple pairs of gloves that I have no idea if he'll wear or not. Now we just have to wait for it to snow again since it's already melted.
G's naptimes have been a real struggle the last few days and he's even been giving dh a hard time going to sleep at night. The struggling has caused dh and I to feel more anger than we thought possible at a little guy who means no harm. So, we've been doing lots of deep breaths and talking about how frustrating it's been. Today I just decided I wasn't going to let him get to me, and the naptime happened with just a little fussing, as opposed to tears from each of us. I'm hoping it's just his bottom canines bothering him (yes, he doesn't have his yet...my slow teether).
Went to a new friend's house today. Met her in LLL, she's got a May 2005 baby (he and G actually have the same b-day!). We had a good time. Though her little guy went to sleep 1/2 way through our play time. I forgot how much more they used to sleep, even just a year ago. Anyway, G had a good time being the "big" boy for a change and Braden loved watching G make his toys work in ways he hadn't thought of yet. It was nice to talk to an IRL mama. I haven't had a lot of that lately.
What else, what else....oh, emmalola....go with the OPK+ (and I hope you get the house)! That's cool. I'm on day 28 of my cycle, which is actually 2-3 days longer than they are typically. I haven't been charting, though, so I'm not 100% sure of when O happened. I feel crampy, though I felt that way when I was pg with G. If I'm not bleeding by tomorrow morning, I'll take a test in the morn. I don't really have high hopes though....maybe my cycles are just getting longer (they've been on the short side since they came back).
Lisa-hope you have an offer from one of the two.
Sarah-glad dh made it home and you and L made it throught the week. We'll be doing a couple days along in another week or so.
Renae....where have you gone?
Heather, it's good to see you back.
Re: hair color: I once had my hair dyed dark red and truly loved it. I just couldn't afford to keep it up and it took 2 or so years to grow out (that's how curly hair does it, I've been told). Anyway, I really loved being a red head.
I hear rumblings from the boy, so I better go.
