Well, he does have mucousy poop, but that's because I overdid it on the dairy this week (he also had blood in the stool again ) I have to go back to restricting dairy more, again.

So I can't tell - but wondering, what would mucousy poo mean if it weren't from the dairy?

I'm a little suspicious. See, I have always worked for the state and going to private industry is just scary.... So this one job that I have to call and get more info about today is in the city next to mine (Lancaster~10 miles away) and the salary is like $20k more than what I make now. No way. There is so gotta be a trick.... Probably is. Will find out today I suppose.
I too am a state worker. I am too scared to leave it. The benefits keep you tied to it. And I'm too scared to not be in the union.

The company probably sees a good thing when they got your application!

Thanks! That's what I was thinking, wait and see. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't being too relaxed about it - yk, I tend to go to extremes, either too nonchalant or totally paranoid - like with my first baby, forget it - first cough and I would have driven into Philly to the Children's Hospital E.R. at 3 am for sure

I KNOW! That is what has kept me driving 60+ miles one way for the last 4 years--to keep my benefits and state job. But seriously, I need to be closer to home. I really hope I can transfer to like a city job (still SOME security) but if I can do that and be closer to home, I think it will be better, yk? But they are so few and far between and with two boys, I just need to move soon...

And then my poor babe wasn't feeling well yesterday and I drive a van so I couldn't immediately leave to go to him or I would have left all the people I drove in stranded. And today, I couldn't even go in late or wait to see how he was doing (I left C with my sister) because traffic bites if I go in later. So I am leaving early after I finish this stuff but it's just to hard. : Gonna have to suck it up and be one of millions who does not have a state job...

:

I worked for a hospital for a while and had state benefits though I wasn't a state emloyee (bizarre classifications that worked to my advantage)....and I know what you mean about the benefits. I hated giving those up when I left the job. Good luck to everyone making a change or thinking about it!



Meantime, I forgot 2 other chatty things.

I ordered a free sample kit (had to pay $4 shipping) for some mineral makeup, cause I've always been so tempted by it but never wanted to spend the huge $$, because i don't wear makeup often anymore...but this has a built in SF, is supposed ot be really easy and lovely, etc. etc. and found a linky to a sample offer they have on the natural home & body care pages here, so I took the pluge and ordered - I can't wait to get them!

Also, I've been reading up on a few threads in spirituality about "Treasure Mapping"...anybody here do it? It's pretty interesting, and I think I'm going to do it this year - I figure there's nothing to lose, and if nothing else might help me think more positively and get a little motivated. Thought I'd add a link in case anyone was interested... this is the thread from 2006, post #9 has some FAQ...for 2007 the date is April 17

Oh my gosh I LOOOOVE mineral makeup! I swear by it, it's the only foundation I'll use now (and I have tried absolutely EVERYTHING!!) Is it Bare Escentuals? Their BareMinerals was the first mineral makeup and it's so incredible! It looks really natural and makes your face look awesome, and it has nothing artificial and is really good for your skin. SPF 15 too. They used to be only in San Francisco but now you can get their stuff in a few places - and we have a whole BE store at that big mall near us. So anyway, girly moment for the day, hope you like it when you get it!!

It's actually Everyday Minerals, I read good things about them on the threads I was reading here...so we'll see if I like it! I have been obsessed with the infomercial for BE for years now but just couldn't bring myself to shell out that much $$...the Everyday seems less expensive overall and there's no "club" package, and the sample kit is free (well, $4) so I figured why not. Who knows - if I can get all purty in 5 min, maybe I'll start wearing makeup again when I leave the house! :

Well, thanks to your girliness, I was motivated to do a little something extra, and have started actually doing my makeup in the morning. I'm usually up about 10 minutes before Samantha, so after I pop my contacts in, I spend 5 minutes on my face. I feel a lot better, as silly as that sounds. Just more awake.

Apparently walking down the stairs is the funniest thing that has ever happened to Sam. Every morning when I bring her downstairs with me, she laughs hysterically the whole time we're walking down. She's easily amused.

:


(So that's what I get for boasting last night) When I said Elijah fell asleep at 8pm. Um ya. He woke up at like 8:45, puked all over the floor, and then stayed up until 10:30-11. : BUT - he was happy the whole time so I should still count my blessing, eh.

Right now he's laying on the floor next to me. Pooping. Oh Lindsey - I have to give major kudos to you and Lee for Ecing. (and everyone else who does!) I tried to catch a poop in the toilet the other day and oh my, how exhausting! I don't have it in me to do that all the time. The occassional pee is about all I can do!

Makeup: Haven't worn any in years. I think the last time I was wearing any I only wore mascara and that was when I was like, 19. So what, 5 years ago? (as of this month)

Hope everyone is having a good day!

Well, she only poops once a day and she gives plenty of warning that it's going to happen so it's not hard for us...easier than a poopy diaper!

yeah, I don't do the club thing either - the infomercial kit comes with other stuff I don't need which makes it more expensive (and actually it doesn't come in my shade that way anyway - I am super-fair-skinned!) I buy it separately so it's cheaper - actually it's like 1/2 what I used to pay for foundation because I used to have it custom-blended to be light enough :

Once a day??? C pooped minimum of 5 times a day... J I think is closer to 3.

So, um, I haven't heard from my "friend". It's been a week. Do you think she is still compiling evidence to refute or she is never going to speak to me again???

I wear shear mircle or however you spell it. Got it from coops here. BTW, if you havent ever checked out the coop area, do it! Great way to get things.

Yesterday we went for Maggie's appt. The Dr said we could go in right away because she didnt want Maggie sitting out in the waiting room- she said she had some sickies out there. Grateful for small favors but I felt like a complete princess going in while others waited out there with the rest of the germs.

So now that we are over our Year of the Craziness, its time to play house hunting again.: We are looking at one tomorrow.

Hi, Stephanie! My DD3, Samantha, was due 6/27, but arrived on 4/20 at 30 weeks. You should come check out the preemie/NICU forum too if you haven't already. It's a great group! Glad to have you here!

Welcome Stephanie!

I bought some mineral eyeshadow a week or so ago. I forget when, but sometime when I was in Portland. I love it. It's very subtle but wouldn't take much for me to make it darker. I think it's by Bare Minerals? Yea, their i.d. line. I like it. I'm tempted to buy more but it's so expensive. We'll see.

Also, I want to chop off my hair. Like really short, but I have no idea what would look good on me. I want it to still look fairly girly but not take too much "do-ing" in the morning. I also want to get it dyed again. Guess that means pumping again so I can leave Katie with a sitter or taking my sitter with me to the city. Hmm... Leaving her would probably save me money shopping because I'd be so anxious to get back to her. Of course, I also need to go to IKEA to get her some book shelves and that will take longer than I'm willing to leave her for at this point, so I'm stuck with 2 trips or bringing SIL with me. We'll see how the weather goes.

We're getting settled in again finally. My kitchen is almost back in order after the influx of Pampered Chef stuff that I brought back from my Mom's with me. She used to sell it and had a ton of stuff she doesn't use any more so I got to raid her closet. Yay! I'm hoping to try making bread tomorrow now that I've got some nice stoneware breadpans.

We got like 6-7 inches of snow dumped on us Tuesday night, and the wind. Oh my goodness the wind. Then last night, we dropped from a liveable -4 to -24 in like an hour and a half. I had to wrap poor Katie in 2 fleece pouches coming in from the truck because I didn't think to take her winter coat and all she had on was her fleece jacket. Poor kid.

I think we may be down to 1 nap a day. I'm hoping that it is a long one at least. She's been cutting it back for weeks now, and today she was happy as a clam until 1pm after waking up at 9. Ack.

So, um, I haven't heard from my "friend". It's been a week. Do you think she is still compiling evidence to refute or she is never going to speak to me again???
Once a day but it's huge! Sorry TMI

I bet she's stewing but that doesn't mean you didn't get through.

Hi, Stephanie! My DD3, Samantha, was due 6/27, but arrived on 4/20 at 30 weeks. You should come check out the preemie/NICU forum too if you haven't already. It's a great group! Glad to have you here!

A little dog hair never hurt, right? Besides, they're so darn cute playing together. Sam hands the dog's toys to her

For those of you who are using teething necklaces, where did you get them? My mom offered to get one for Sam if I send her the link.
Dog toys are funner, mom! And a dogs mouth is cleaner than ours

Got J.C's teething necklace on Ebay. Sugar and Spice Kidz has a Ebay store. I think it was around $24 w/ shipping. I LOVE it. It really seems to make a difference. They are 12" and are double knotted inbetween each bead, and they have a screw clasp.

In other news, I'm being transferred It's better than being laid off but I don't like where I'm going to. I might have to deal with complaints to public utility companies. I guess it's not so bad but I really was comfy doing insurance
OOOhhh Prom!! Maybe the theme could be "Under the Sea"!

Oh, sorry you're being transferred. Maybe its a blessing in disguise. :

Me Neither! Too many house noises.

I completely agree that having a baby changes your emotional make up. I know that now I'll cry over more things than I used to. I think as mothers we tend to be a little more empathetic than we were before, ykwim?

I'm putting in for a transfer, so hopefully next year, I'll at least be closer to home.

Anybody else still suffering from pregnancy brain? Sometimes I get worried about myself. I hate it when my thinking isn't clear. Today I asked on of the kids to run to the cafeteria/clinic/conference room before I could get "copy room" out! I swear I'm going crazy. : When will it go away?
Poor Baby, I hope Caleb feels better.

Hope your transfer goes thru and you get to work closer to home.

And definetly suffering from Mommy brain still!! I think its lack of sleep

So this one job that I have to call and get more info about today is in the city next to mine (Lancaster~10 miles away) and the salary is like $20k more than what I make now. No way. There is so gotta be a trick.... Probably is. Will find out today I suppose.
Poor C, sorry he's not feeling well

And hope the new job is everything it says it is!

I didn't worry too much because he didn't have any trouble breathing or nursing, and he didn't act too uncomfortable or abnormal at all (every time the coughing woke him up, he'd nurse and go right back to sleep). Today he's still having these periodic coughing fits that sound really bad, but he's crawling all around playing, laughing and smiling in between them....so I don't know. The coughing sounds really scary to me (different sound than either of my girls has ever made) but I normally gauge the severity of something by how the baby is acting (normal and happy vs. out of it, whiny, sluggish) and he's acting totally normal, so I can't decide whether to get him checked out or not.

WWYD?
J.C had a weird barky cough earlier before Christmas and I debated taking him in, but he seemed perfectly happy. So I didn't and it went away. Listen to your mommy instincts. They're always right

I hear ya!! I was so unsure as a new mom!

Yes, he did. He also gave Caleb a steriod for the coughing, but I read the info sheet that came with it and the side effects stopped me. He told me that he would prescribe it and if the antibiotics didn't kick the cough, that he could have take the other medicine.

And I swear my brain 'recovered' faster with Caleb. , maybe it's because I only had one!

Hi Stephanie! :

One more day and then it's the weekend! Yippee and a long one at that! My mom emailed me today and said she and my dad and grandparents are going to come up if that's ok. We had plans for Sun, but Jonathan is going to see if we can get out of them. I hope we can. It's rare for my grandparents to come to visit.

Aw, this reminds me of DS...he used to think it was the funniest thing for one of us to carry him up the stairs while the other walked behind and watched his peek over our shoulder. Gotta love those babies!!

When I got mine chopped just before K was born, it was a couple inches below my chin, in very choppy layers and chunky highlights; all I had to do ws slap some gel in it and it looked great, spazzy or smooth.

I hope you get your visit to come together!!

K was NOT happy today. She screamed every time I tried to hold her to go to sleep between about 10 am and 4pm....finally at 4pm she nursed to sleep for 40 minutes. I have no idea what was up - I don't think it's her ears, cause she was happy as a clam layign on the floor to play on her back, and she's zonked out right now on my lap...not a fun late morning/afternoon. Hopefully she'll sleep a while this evening then go right to bed for the night. I hate colds.

Guess I don't really have anything else - have a good night, ladies!

Heather, WAHM to DS (01/04)DD (06/06). Wed to DH(09/97)
