Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! Little orphan annie had the right words there! I just can't keep up here. My bread machine is whirring away, making a spelt/rice/potato bread (I'm considering adding the tamari almonds, but maybe next time). YEA!!! Well Brownies sucked as usual, I am SO done w/it. the school asked me to reconsider and I just about jumped down the ladies throat w/a no so fast...
is there no end!?! Anyway, one more meeting (party) next week, and then the campout and that's it. I do hope the girls find someplace for next year (my kid is in, but the others...).
I am too scared to commit to 1000 mins., 'cause if I can't do it I'll feel like a failure, and I just don't need that. So I'm increasing my walking on my own, and trying to squeeze in the exercise at home, but sometimes I just need a freaking break. I don't want to work out, I want to curl up w/a tea or iced tea or lemonade and read a book for half an hour while the baby actually sleeps :LOL . Today, although I had to nurse him twice in between, he's giving me almost 2 hrs., but I also did the diaper laundry, and two other loads, cleaned the kitchen floor and made the bread for the machine (oh, now THAT was hard! :LOL ). I guess I'm feeling kinda fried. Jerry WASN'T away this week (although to hear me complain you'da thunk it, huh?), but next week. This week he's been pretty gone, tho, not getting home till after six (except yesterday when he had a softball game) and then really needing to veg. out. He's pretty stressed at work these days. So exercise isn't my first priority. Gotta say, tho, that not eating wheat has def. given my body a chance to lose some weight. I'll bet I've lost 5lbs in the past 10 days or so.
And milk supply is high!
Laura - WELL DONE to Megan on both the semi-tuck roll w/a twist (gotta love the little athletes!) and the laugh!!! Baby laughter is just as pure as it gets, eh? And I think Lisa's idea of the t-shirt is a GREAT one! I've got a permanent marker here...can I send it?!! :LOL
Joyce - (shiver smilie) - I hate wondering whether I've gone and done some duh thing to a large appliance. I do it once in a while, and it always makes me wanna go sit quietly in the bathroom and not be disturbed (until dh tells me it's ok to come out). I am SO bad at stuff like that. I actually returned a dvd player once, condemned it probably!, because I couldn't get it to work. I didn't have the tv on the right channel.
: I suck sometimes. BUT - I did figure out what was wrong, so sometimes I'm bloody BRILLIANT!!! I do hope this one is ok...
Paq - get some sleep, honey. Take her to the park, bring some comfy quilts, and snooze under a big shade tree. You'll feel better...and so will she!!! (Or will Nana walk her for a while outside while you get a bit of sleep?)
Az - I wanted to comment on the MIL drama - what a drag. I honestly have no advice, but I'm glad to be here to listen. I'm still looking for a strawberry diaper, but no luck. What about getting the fabric and sending it to someone to make a custom? Flannel strawberry material or cotton knit might be easier to find, wouldn't it?
what we do for our kids...
Lisa - I'm getting a lot of emails about the nurse-in in nyc, and it's starting to look like it might be BIG. A bunch of mamas are going because they are SICK of being put in the imporssible position "breast is best" but "don't let me see it!". And they are RIGHT! I really do wish I could go...sigh.
Laura - I pm'd you about something - I got an email from here, she's going to the nurse in too. She seems totally legit and a mama herself. Obviously only if it feels right to you...
Ok, time to move laundry and maybe time for one diaper search! Yea!!! Lots of hugs mamas! xxx andy
