It's definitely getting colder huh?
It's Isaac's birthday tomorrow so we'll be hanging out with my parents and probably won't come.
Should we see about changing days again?

happy birthday isaac!!!

we'd be up for a change in days. it looks like there is a possibility that i may not have ocean anymore after this week (or next), since a & j are thinking they really do need full-time care after all, and we all agree that she would probably do better with the same, consistent caregiver for all 5 days. also the dynamic between o and amy is....challenging....and we think maybe o needs more than i can give her when amy is around, needing the *exact* same things. so they are investigating a few options this week, and i'll know more later.

so all that to say, that monday tuesday and wednesday are back on the table for us

I wish I had been more on the ball in checking weather because today may have been the better day? Should we switch to Wed starting next week?
I liked meeting on Wed before because of its mid-week status and we really tend to meet once a week (despite aspirations for twice-weekly-meetups).
So far partly cloudy and 54 for next Wed...

Yes, Deb, I agree!
Maybe we can do more mom's nights and less playgroups when winter sets in and playgroup moves indoors. Us adults can handle close quarters better than the kids I think

So uh David is outa town on a camping trip to Maine with a buddy. He'll be gone from Thursday to Sunday. I'm trying not to panic at the thought of have both boys for almost 4 days with no help, not that I'm looking for help just some friend time so I don't spend everyday cleaning the house and doing laundry.

Anyone interested in hanging out? Pretty please? Dinner..mom's night anyone, I'll host!?
Feel free to e-mail me direct, call me or post here...do I sound desperate?

Hi, If anyone wants to come here tomorrow - I can host.

No problems switching to Wednesdays going forward, either here or anywhere...

I was also wondering if anyone has any navy blue or brown or light blue or grey or cream colored scrap yarn I could use? I'm making Sam a scarf and the yarn is varigated and I wanted to do a little fringe and thought the fringe would look nicer in a solid color.

Steph - Warren is working on Saturday so, I could also use someone to hang with. Do you want to make plans for the morning? I am flexible with location and time and stuff...

Gray would be perfect - wool is good, the yarn I am using is wool. It is the yarn I was using to make the longies I never made...Thanks!

Miss you guys!!! Poppy has been so sick (on the mend) and Ethan has been kinda sick so we haven't been around and my driving status still stands

I'd like to host something but, DH is home until who knows when so I'm not sure that would be the best environment for him to get homework done, sigh. Hmmmm, He goes to school Thursday afternoons if anyone would like hang out in the 'bucket. It's an option

boo-hoo. i have 2 stupid school deadlines that i'm stressed about coming up on wednesday and the following monday, so i won't be able to play over the weekend or any time next week. though, i may be seeking park meet-ups during hours when i don't have help w/ cooper so that i don't go insane. i'm tottering on insane as it is.

Yes, we are going out...but I was thinking of going to Summit, but I'll go wherever.
Also we can't come this wed. because it's veteran's day and Andrew has off so we're going to DO something we'll see what it is. But normally wed. are good for us.
I'll probably go around 10 to the park.

I'm with Sonja for Wed. David has it off and we are going to find something to do as well!
We ARE going to the park today, I'm thinking Humbolt and we'll get there around 11.

Oh and I'll host next week, so come on over. I'll be making something but I have no idea what that will be....perhaps chicken tortilla soup!

Hi Friends!

We're out for most playgroups, as Ocean just started full time daycare. I miss you all though, and would be up for mama-related activities at some point.

Also, we're picking Ocean up early today, and will probably head over to Humboldt for a little while in the afternoon, if anyone wants to join us. 3:30 or so...

(and oh, did i mention we're having twins?!?)

we're headed out to humboldt now (2ish, by the time we get there), if anyone wants to join.

also, where are we going on Wed?

and, does anyone have a copy of - Our Babies Ourselves and/or Kids: How Biology and Culture Shape the Way we Parent - that I could borrow?

I'm a horrible person and never made it to the playground.
I was overcome with the need to do chores instead. I think I'm losing my mind...wait it's gone. Lost in this never ending pile of laundry.

DONT FORGET WED IS AT MY PLACE EVERYONE!!!

Sonja- I hope you and the fam feel better! Any deer meat this time?

Just wanted to say we are FINALLY over our illness and would absolutely LOVE to get out this week. I'm dying for some interaction with someone other then the kids and my husband. Don't get me wrong, I love having my DH home during the day but, I miss my Mama friends!!

Steph's place this week? Sorry we missed the Halloween party, sick kids and all.

Oh, and we missed the Kanga Mamas too I REALLy wanted to go.
