And 2-3 weeks dairy/soy free minimum, maybe a month. And if that's the problem, it will get worse before it gets better, for a few days or a week.
Hey who has the fake TIVO that hooks up to the computer network? Dh and I are debating about it next, since we're killing the DTV this week.
Sheri, woohoo!!! House!! Yaay!
Kathy, how's the weather today? It's rain rain rain rain here, ugly boring drippy rain, not a perky happy storm like I enjoy.
Pam, how was the cheesecake? Gosh, I feel like I missed a week here, and I was really only away for half of yesterday and half of today.
Michelle, Lauren sings all the time. It's such a nice thing to listen to. Then she'll make some screech noise and *ack* there goes my quiet music moment!
Aviva, we're in that place with $$ too. And we're cutting and hacking everything we can possibly find to cut. No more DTV, no more house phone, no eating out, no lots of stuff. BUT on the flip side, I'm buying healthier foods and trying to make it all work out.
Joyce, yes, it's both. My brother is the young one and the boy, and he pretty much can do whatever and whenever he wants no matter how screwed up it is, and my parents always always always always think he's ok, and when they don't think he's ok, they don't say anything. Me, I'm the older and girl, and I have these internalized expectations that I have always felt obligated to meet, even if my parents didn't mean to do that to me.
Take the job! Take the job! I am so jealous. I've lived all of my life in BORING OHIO and I want to go somewhere else. I can live vicariously through you. And ask Fiona to go too, she might love it!
Pam, can you take all the stuff that A can do independently and put them in shoeboxes so she can go get a box when she has nothing to do? Then you could suggest a box for her when things start to get nutty?
And I'll send you a box of chocolates to coax you out!
Joyce, bummer on Fiona.
Sheri, ooh moving this weekend! Woohoo! And Mr. C will do just fine, I totally cried on the first day of first grade for the same reasons. The expectations are so different than K was.
Ack, dh just told me he is going to Stennis Space Center, MS, this week, uh to like the middle of all the worst hurricane damage. ACK!
OMG I just realized I am like 4 pages behind. Heck you guys might have started a new thread already... reading faster. Must read faster.
Happy Bday Emily and Jessi!
Yaay Kaitlyn on the potty training!
My dh is all for the commune too, but he says we have to have solar and wind power and he'll be in charge of that with the other geek guys.
Oooh Lauren is so seriously into stuff. She's trying to climb, pull, tackle, take over, whatever she can to the entire house. I need to do some bigtime baby proofing. And diaper gymnastics too, yes! If I had a linoleum floor in the kitchen I'd just leave her in there naked and wipe the floor, but nope, we have old pine floors here!
Baby bath poll: Lauren goes in the shower with dh or I after a nasty poo that doesn't make it in the potty. Otherwise, we wipe her bottom down with a wet cloth every day, and her face/hands/feet as needed when they are dirty. No soap or shampoo for my baby, although dh will wash her bum with soap when he's got a poo girl.
Memory poll: my first memory is about 2 yrs old, when I had ear tubes surgery. I remember so distinctly the green tile wall (think hospital green) and the burnt orange woven material on the bench in the hallway (looked like burlap, not quite so rough) and then someone coming at me with a gas mask. Very lovely memory.
Pam, if zoloft can take the edge off and help you cope with the situation better, wouldn't that be ok?
|If you have to get up for one last snack, I want you to know we'll be right back!
Oh yah, gymnastics, L crawled off the changing table on to the nightstand, across the nightstand, and into the window the other day - I guess she really wanted whatever was in the window, ended up with her face pressed against the screen and her toes on the nightstand... dh was right there watching it all and waiting for her to get stuck.
I want some cake!
ROFL Andy, nice ddddc!
Jessi, my niece is Evie, because her mother, grandmother, and great grandmother are all Evelyns and living, so we named them Evie, Evelyn (her mom), BIG EV (granma) and then Grandma Evelyn... easier to tell them all apart.
Bday poll - I really don't remember my birthdays... I can remember specific things about some years when I got some specific gift, but nothing spectacular stands out.
Laura, come on, make 1000! You can do it! I wish I could help ya on the fussy baby bit, but I don't have a clue. Lauren does that too.
Andy, L wore the sailor outfit the other day, and is in the denim jumper now... she gets pissed though because she can't crawl in a dress!
Nicknames... I can't think of one for L. I am really Elizabeth, but my parents had a big fight over that one - one wanted a formal name, one wanted a fun name, and they compromised, making Elizabeth into Eliza into Lisa for me.
