Yeah, I got the car insurance straightened out. Apparently dh has trouble paying the ONE bill he's in charge of on time so.
I know it will take awhile to get RIte Care worked out. But it was due to a pretty big mistake on their part so I'm hoping we do get it back.
The kids remain covered so it's not too big of a deal.
It's just such a pain to get people on the phone!
So, glad everyone had fun. Sorry for my ranting!

hope to see everyone here on thursday, but if someone else wants to please speak up. I'm not trying to take over thursdays but I can host if needed and wanted and don't mind at all.

Hi mamas! I just wanted to check in and say hello. I'm sorry we can't attend anything until dp is out of town again, which won't be until after babe arrives.

I'm due today : but so far not much going on. Which is good...had a gbs+ result and did a retest so we need 2 days to get the results in and see where we're at. So I'm taking it easy and laying low until then

It was great to meet you all and I hope to see you all again soon!

Hello ladies!
Gabe and I will try to make it tomorrow. I can bring some clementines. We moved last weekend and survived! We are slowly settling in and I need a break from all the boxes. Here's hoping I can get my act together...
JOJO- The cankles comment has me laughing...I'm so sorry. I had swollen legs so bad the last trimester too!

Hey mamas... just checking in to say Imstill here and planning to come! My hubbins has been on "storm" in Mass since last Friday when the ice storm hit up north. He's a high voltage electrician aka really sexy lineman Needless to say I've had my hands a bit full here. I'm also only 9 weeks out from the loss of our youngest so being without dh for the first time since then has been a little hard on me.

I can't wait to meet everyone though. I'm thinking after the holidays are over I will be able to get to one of the playgroups. Until then I'm just going to keep checking in here.

If you don't mind me asking... what towns do the groups take place in? Feel free to pm me if you don't feel comfortable posting it here.

...hmmm.... I just saw this on weatherbug for tomorrow:
"Snow in the morning...then snow and rain in the afternoon. Snow may be heavy at times in the afternoon. Total snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches. Not as cool with highs in the upper 30s. Northeast winds 10 to 15 mph. Gusts up to 25 mph... Increasing to 40 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation near 100 percent."

thoughts?

I noticed your loss in your signature. I hope you've had a lot of support while your dh was away.

We have met in Cranston, East Side of Providence, Seekonk, Tiverton, East Providence and Rumford (am I forgetting any?) So there's a range.

I'm very sorry for your loss Milkymomma. How hard for you guys!
We meet mostly in and around the Providence area as lovermont said. Are you far from here?

As for the party, Sarah, we don't care about driving personally but what about parking? Is there a parking ban in E. Prov. tomorrow? We will drive through sleet but don't want our car to get towed.

I checked turnto10.com and don't see a parking ban for tomorrow. So whoever is comfortable driving tomorrow- we'll be here:

I have amazing friends... we've honestly had an incredible amount of support though everything. I'm sort of getting back on my own 2 feet now with everyday things... and not doing too shabby with it most of the time I even shoveled myself out of a foot of snow this morning!! : I never realized how looooong my driveway was

Nah, we're in Hope Valley which isn't too far from Warwick. I say I'm about 30ish minutes from PVD. Driving isn't a biggy for me. My kiddos go to private school in New London CT which is a half hour drive one way every day.My mother, sister and cousins live in Norwich CT ... I'm fairly used to shlepping.

How much snow did you all get up there? Seems everyone got a little different. DH said that they got about 16 inches in Boston area

Just sent out an email to those coming to the party today.
Dh checked the weather and freezing rain is supposed to start soon. We're happy to still have the party today (we're not driving, after all) but don't want people to come if they don't feel comfortable driving. I'm wondering if we should postpone until tomorrow?
Please reply here or send me an email or call to let me know...
I feel like we're cutting this decision close.


eta: k- rescheduled for tomorrow at 3- looking forward to it!

so sarah's house, tomorrow at 3 -- this is the party re-schedule and it is also taking the place of playgroup, right? i mean, that would just be silly to have playgroup and THEN have a party, amirite?

Hi, I know that not everyone has family around (or maybe you just don't want to see them )so I wanted to invite you all to my house on Christmas Day. If you need my address, feel free to send me a PM. No RSVP necessary. Things will get started around noon to allow some family time in the morning. I hope everyone has a nice holiday!

P.S. I hope everyone has fun at Sarah's! You can think of me while I work

I just wanted to pop in and let everyone know LJ had her little girl last night around 6PM. I won't spoil the birth story for her and let her tell it but, she had a wonderful HB

Anyway, I really missed all of you yesterday and can't wait to meet with everyone again!
