That doesn't sound like a fun week, Doularn!

Did anyone order soap? I need to make some by Christmas and was thinking if someone haddn't that I'd just go to Hobby Lobby and get a little sample of soap. Also, anyone have good holiday essential oils that I can borrow to put in some bath salts? I only need a couple drops and I don't want to buy a whole bottle, ya know?

doularn - i always feel sleepy when i read your posts

elm - print off a coupon online and get a little soap kit form hobby lobby - they usually have a %40 off coupon online. Most of the kits come with scents and colors and molds too

we finally got the tree up - on the table so mr monkey doesnt eat it.

I did order some soap because I didn't like what the local stores carry. Full of nasty chemicals. I only got one kind though. .. Goat milk soap. I wasn't sure how much I needed so I just got a huge 25lb block, since I was planning on some for myself for gifts anyway. It shipped out yesterday so I should have it sometime this week.

I am free any time/day after thursday. So if we did it his weekend it'll be ready for Christmas.

But do we know where we are going to do it? Did anyone volunteer?

I'd volunteer but I have very little counter space, so if someone can do it who has more space, that'd be great!

Thanks everyone. You guys really are the best friends. I've been blubbering all day. Great way to keep the kids from freaking out - not. Dh has been much more calm about the whole thing. He explained it really well to the kids and already has resumes out. The whole thing just stinks. We really weren't expecting it. We knew that there were issues in Chicago, but thought he was pretty safe here if he just laid low.

I think we're ok right now. We just have never gotten much into savings after our horrific year last year. We're ok thru Jan. And dh still has his contract work although it's really not enough to even cover rent - but it's something. We were planning a small Christmas anyway - I think all I have left are some small stuff and postage. I'm trying really hard to tell myself that I can really flip out in a couple of weeks if he still doesn't have anything then. But, now I can just breathe, get through Christmas.

I know you all don't know me well yet but if there's anything I can do, please don't hesitate to call on me.

I can sew little things for the kids as gifts and put together gift bags if you would like or need.

(((()))))

My email is kara @ st jonn . com (without the spaces, of course )

So the soap came in today. Wow that was fast! DH forgot I ordered it so he brought in the mail and was cursing up a storm at "that dang heavy box". Well, yeah 25lbs of soap'll weight a lot!

Friday after noon will work fine for me. Who else is going to be there??

Oh CoMommy, we are so sorry to hear your news! Please let us know if you need anything!

Sorry we were out of touch for a few days, apparently my last post disappeared... My folks were in for a visit, and just left, so we have been trying to reclaim the house. It was actually a pretty good visit overall, since my dad came down too.

I'll see if we can make it Friday...

Just a modifiedartist.gif trying to find some peace and regain my balance.

I love the snow.

I'm hoping to spend today unwinding and getting life a bit back together. She never ceases to amaze and disappoint. Apparently the run to Walgreens to get Christmas lights counted as D and I getting away together :

R had a stomach bug (still maybe) and M deceided sleep is for the weak (ASF what is with these babies lately).

S has an ear infection, sore throat, major snotties, fever and conjunctivitis. Still, she was so sad at the thought of not going out to make a snowkid with J, S and Daddy that I let her go. I just put her right in front of the roaring fire when she came back in.

Hoping for a quiet day with school canceled. I told M to take the car; can't take S out when she's oozing contagion and I don't want or need to go anywhere anyway. I'm sure the bluray player will get lots of use today. Also the Wii. Anything to get through, I'm sick, too, did I forget to mention that? LOL, no time for Mommy's to be sick. Luckily, little baby H's fever was low and broke the first night. He's his usual bundle of happy. Not much napping during the day still, but sleeps all night.

Eman's, ASF, I don't know what I'd do in your place. Sleeping is NOT for the weak, it IS for the babies, don't they know that?

We made S'mores in the fireplace last night, yum!

We are six: Me : Dh : Ds1('00) Dd('02) Ds2('05) Ds3('08) and, wow! Soon to be seven, Dd2 due 4/23.

I'm butting into your thread because I'm wondering if they pick up the trash/recycling on snow days? I drug mine out (in shorts and flip flops : ) but I didn't notice the neighbors cans out?!

and on that note the kids are enjoying making snowmen with the little snow we got. Funny cause in Denver the schools almost never closed, unless it was a really bad blizzard.

We put our cans out this morning, as did all of our neighbors. I hope they come by to get it today.
