Um, well here it is midnight and I am just packing boxes to mail tomorrow. If its okay with everyone I will take Eman up on her offer just in case my kiddos dont make it. We may still come if that is okay but we have to survive the post office at noon because I have to take kittens to vet at 930 then L to tutoring at 1030.

ASF- I am also deficeint in Vit D, testosterone, DHEA and progesterone. He will give you some cream to use. I forget to use it most days. How we can be low in vit D in New Mexico is beyond me tho'

I will check in the morning. What time Eman?

I think we are going to make it. Call me and I can pick up pizza or snacks at Dions or Trader Joes after tutoring.

I will give C some decongestant so she isn't leaky.

Dh got a small bonus today with his regular pay. After I pay off Christmas, credit cards, yard cleanup, new fence in Ohio, rent, mortgage, daycare, gymnastics, car payment etc today, we are broke again. But I am thankful that we have a job and get a little extra. Its been a long time coming.

I think Dh will take us out for sushi to celebrate. Our big splurge

See ya later.

So is it just elmh and I that want to do soap? Or doularn, do you want some? emans, I know you don't want any, but can I use your kitchen to do it? This kind is a little different than what we had before and the instructions said that you can use the microwave. . .I tried some yesterday and it works great. Less mess that way, I think.

I also don't have many EOs. Pretty much just tea trea and orange. No colors. Elmh, do you or anyone else have any to bring?

thanks for hosting Eman and thanks to crazy for organizing the supplies. I just took my snowmen and trees out and they came out great (well one tree is funky but that'll just be for me then ) I'm so happy to have these done! One less thing!

Tomorrow we're going sledding. I'm not really looking forward to it (I hate the snow) but dh got some snowpants for me so warmth will help the situation!

I can't believe that video is for real, ASF. I was nearly hyperventilating while watching it!

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

Anytime Eman, anytime. I just need to drive again. He did really well with the lightsabers but just doens't know when to quit or back off.

So since I started this medication I've had really vivid dreams. One was related to the Handmaid Tale, one my mom died (that was freaky) and one I went shopping without kids for like 5 hours and bought stuff only for me (that one was fun!) Well last night I had one in which I went in to labor and Doularn was here and we left to go to the hospital when I was 6cm. Anyway I had the baby on the freeway between Wyoming and Eubank on the side of the road with only Doularn and dh there. Doularn did a great job in my dream as dh was on the phone with 911. I named the baby Ezra (a name I LOVE but dh HATES!) and was going to give Doularn middle name rights but then woke up. It really seemed real and for a second I thought to myself "Did that really happen?" Weird dream!

Went sledding today. Thought Little S would love it and he cried the entire time and had to be in arms. S loved it and has already asked to go back. We plan to go 3 more times between now and when dh has to go back to work.

Mama of three.

Yeah but I'm not pregnant. Can I have accurate birth dreams while not pregnant?

We went sledding just up past Doc Long at around mile marker 4 on the side of the road. There was just this great space with lots of hills and not to many trees (at ones you could get around with lots of room.) Lots of fun and fast hills.

Figured out why Little S didn't like the sledding. He spiked a fever last night. I think it finally broke this morning at around 6 and now he is UP. Dh got up with him only for me not to be able to sleep at all so I might as well get up. I think I got maybe 2 hours of sleep last night. I kept expecting Little S to vomit (he was mighty burpy last night!) but it never happened. Now we're watching Wall-E.

So for half right, lets go with that I will be there but the side of the road thing will turn into something else. With your history I don't want to catch your baby and deal with a PPH on the side of the road if you don't mind

Happy Solstice! Happy First Day of Winter! Happy Hannukah!

I second the meet up request for this week. We'll actually be able to attend since Adam took the week off.

Elm, that's nuts! I've had many vivid pregnancy/birth dreams while not pregnant and none of them have happened.

Yay winter!

Doularn, it's funny but in the dream you kept telling the 911 operator to get here now because of my history and telling me not to bleed. Like I could control that.

AH, but yes I would say that. On the off chance your mind could help in some way. Like "stay with me- dont pass out". A funny thing I thought of. When C was born and didn't breathe, the apprentice commanded her to"breathe in the name of Jesus..." like she could do that and like she knew jesus as "jesus" at birth".

Hows Tuesday for "regular ole playgroup"? I'm off. I was gonna say the same thing but didn't for fear of being too goofy. I LOVE being with you all :

ASF- thats great Ds will love it. Let me know if the movie camera doesn't go and I will take that too.

Where and what time? Dh said he'd take us to play while he's home. We hace speech that morning but that means we'll be dressed early and ready to head out. It's possible I might bring a nephew or 2 to come play but I'll try to convince dh to go play at grandma's with them instead.

We rearranged the house today. Why did I do this when I'm so sleep deprived?

COmommy what is with the fish jammies, R was beside herself that she couldn't wear them.

Elm don't worry, DoulaRN can smoosh a uterus like nothing you've ever felt, you'd be afraid to bleed

The kids are busy on Tuesday so M and I are having girl time

Well I've had my uterus smooshed several times on 2 occasions now, so I feel I know a good uterus smoosher.

It's 4am and my son is AWAKE. Probably because he puked but dh and I were up anyway (neither of us could sleep, nothing fun was happening unless you count the baby's head jamming in to mama's ribs fun.) I'm tired.

We'll see how Little S is doing tonight before I commit for tomorrow. He seems fine but between the fever the other night and this, me thinks he's not!

Not possible when the baby is sick though. Every time I moved, he cried and then he puked and has been up ever since.

I'M HOME !!!!!: No babies want me around today. So far. But by the afternoon I will be beggin to go in. Good thing we got that little bonus. My paycheck is gonna be pitiful next time. But time is better than money till after the holidays anyway.

DH is whining he is sick and we almost had a real argument at 630am about whether he was sick enough to go to the Urgent Care THAT IS NOT OPEN AT 630AM.: My professional assessment is that he has a head cold and sinus headache and as usual has not idea what real sickness is. DS is now sniffly cause he slept with DH last night :

So i was thinkin about PG here but it depends on these guys and I hear the weather is gonna suck here pretty quick. But its below zero at my Ohio vacation home so I will take it.

Didi I tell you my new laptop is purple? I guess i should be nice to DH for that

Also we should be getting a bunch of packages today from back east !!!

i am probably out for tomarrow as i have an apt with dr jones and then i am baking cookies with my mama :

elm - sorry he is sick

my neighbor just laughed at me I was outside taking down dipes : and he laughed and said "so i guess you are a real hippy then - you even hang things outside in the cold. I thought you might be one of theose trendy hippies" At least he was pleasently teasing me or else i might checked a dipe at him.

Well, they still get dry because there is always sun or wind here. I even had them out when it snowed because i never believe that snow is coming till i see it coming down so i had to yank em down full of snow
