hi poxybat!
majikfaerie land is pretty exhausted. we did a MASSIVE shopping mission in town today, and I started bleeding, after not sleeping much... but at least the weather is warm and pleasant, and I'm home now with my feet up.

i need to join you guys... I am always awake til 4-5 am sometimes right when the alarm clocks goes off for my husband who is a middle school teacher.

I wake up at 11 sometimes 1, it depends... I tried to 'fix' my schedule but the baby has a strange pattern so I end up sleeping the way he does

Evenings ladies!! We had to pack up and head to a hotel tonight. I'll probably actually sleep because there is no distractions of home.

i am still pretty upset about the events that got us here.... i got the carpet steam cleaned today. i ended up getting the carpet protecor put on at the end.
we stayed locked out in our enclosed patio room all day. several hours after he left, I walked int he house, got a headache, and started vomiting.

Apparently he accidently sprayed some on my fireplace and didn't tell me about it. I lit the fire to help dry floor.....and sent the chemicals burning into the air in the house. Luckily the patio room is totally closed off from the rest of the house and my DD wasn't touched.

i opened windows and ran. Geez.......

hmmm....lets see, it's 1 here and we just finished folding some laundry and now it's time for baths/showers. the only one *really* clothed is the baby and his cd. and dh wears boxers as a rule, or else dd just laughs hysterically. she's 3, so bathroom humor is huge around here.

maylanna - i'm so sorry! your dd is chemically sensitive? or worse??? i personally can't even read a new book, because the ink smells so strong i get a bad headache and tunnel vision and nausea.

Good evening.

I'm currently writing a 25 random things about me thing on facebook. Because I moved on from the research project I was working on. Its my break before I move onto the other research project.

What are you up to?

lol, it wasn't me. Not unless I don't know that you are on my facebook friends list. That is an odd coincidence.

Very cool that you are a midwife. What was your journey to becoming one?

okay, just to compound the weird facebook coincidences, someone called jen just friended me, and I don't think it was you. :

I don't even do facebook very much


and my path to midwifery was basically a long, difficult, and unplanned unassisted homebirth (well, the homebirth bit was planned, but everything went haywire), followed by doulaing for some friends, meeting a mw and assisting at a few births, and deciding that's my life... 5 years of independent study including 3 years of practice later... here I am

Amazing, it really can be done that quickly with a small child. How expensive was the process? The cost of midwifery school is daunting to me.

if you do an off-site school like AAMI, it's really very affordable

and I'm blessed enough to have a *very* supportive DP who works at home, and we're unschooling, so we have the flexibility to make it work quite effortlessly

:

The whole thing is under $5,000. Wow. That is accessible to me. I've got the Seattle Midwifery School right down the road from me and I think its like $30,000. I just finished a M.Ed. that in total was less than $15,000 and even though I paid that entirely out of pocket, I still thought it was a good deal. Woah...something to think about...

Are you licensed?
