Thanks for starting the new thread, KMJ!

Emans, sorry to hear about that. So what will that mean, exactly?

So I just found out I'm going to be working full-time this summer. I got that internship I had applied for! I guess that means I passed the background investigation I'm kinda bummed about not having the summer off to go have fun, but I guess that's what the weekeneds are for. So yeah, I won't be making it to pg for a while. But anyway, it's only the summer so it's all good!

KMJ - bummer about the flat tire. Were you at home at least?

Emans - more donuts? j/k I know how frustrating the weight gain issues are. What did the dr. say?

crazy - congrats on the summer job! too bad you're going to miss pg for awhile.

I cannot believe it's May already!

KMJ hope you get it fixes. Costco is great if you can get there.

Congrates and bummer about the summer job : We'll miss you.


The plan is to talk to OT at school as a start, he will refer us if the school can't help and go from there. I'm trying to think of empty calories and medicine in some twisted way, but that only solves part of the problem YK? At the very least he has to go back in 3 months for another check.

It seems like you would want to find out why he's not gaining weight. I've seen him eat. Granted, it's not a lot, but he does eat. I don't know. How frustrating for you.

Hugs, Eman's. Sara hasn't gained much in the last two years, either. No one seems worried about it, though.

Congrats on the internship, crazy!

I was driving the kids to school when I noticed, so on the access road going 25 mph. I parked it back in the driveway and took it to Firestone once M came home and put on the spare. Quick fix and not much trouble, thank goodness. Didn't find any obvious cause like a nail.

And the Yanks won a nailbiter in the bottom of the 9th so I'm a happy me today.

Anyone going today?


Can I just say that I love the nursing attitude here in NM : R had her soccer party at a pool over the weekend of course M needed to nurse. I attempt to find a empty spot and try to be a bit discret, I'm wearing a swimsuit and it it the pool afterall. Anyway that is the exact spot where the coach decides to set up the trophy ceremony. He doesn't bat an eye when he realizes what he did, makes a light comment and keeps on going. Then a mom come up and starts taking pictures not realizing what I'm doing then again is totally cool with the fact that M nursing is in all the photos.

Okay so I tried to register for a graduate class and it said I couldnt if I wasnt in a program. I am in contact with the advisor who keeps track of such things. She says that there arent any classes offered for Fall that I can take at this time. SOOOO I think unless I get some special persmission I am not going to be able to take a grad nursing class.... diappointing at first BUT.... that may make my decision for me. Partime day care for C is still gonna be a problem.

My dad died two years on Thursday, I've been asking him to help me figure out what to do. I need a sign... perhaps I will get it.

THe deal is I can take Pathophysiology over the summer, ick. And then pharmacology in the spring. So Fall I cant take anything.... so if C get into pre-k I need to find afternoon care for her if I want to work during the week or I can go back to weekends.........

I cleaned out C's room today. Funny thing, once i put everything where it was supposed to be and threw crap away, the toybox was empty. SO I took it away. I wonder if the same process could work in the playroom.

Hi all. It's nice to be back. The 6 hour car drive today included a screaming rendition of the "Mamma Mia" musical by S and just plain ol' screaming and whining from both of them. 15 hours in the car over a 4 day period was just a little to much I guess. But we had a blast at the Great Sand Dunes. DRN, you need to take L there. He'd love it!

Eman, sorry E isn't gaining any weight. Hopefully OT will work out perfectly for him.

Mama of three.

Glad you're back and alive.

DoulaRN, is there anything relevent you can take? I'm sure you've already been through this but something? Any chance you need an english filler or something so that you can fix the child care thing?

Hey all, sorry we have been so scarce. We have been really busy here with Nana visiting and trying to do some work on the house. It sounds like everyone else has been pretty busy too! Today my baby turns 3!! : Where has the time gone?? She got a trampoline from DH's folks, and she is really excited about it. We are taking her out to lunch today and she is spending quality time with her Nana before she has to go back home tomorrow.

Emans - big on the struggles you are going through! I hope you can get some answers about E's weight soon.

elmh - glad you had a good trip (well, without the whining part). We haven't made a trip over 90 minutes because DD wigs out being in the car seat for too long. We really need one of those big campers so she could run around while we drive.

doularn - on the school stuff. Making that transition to going back to school is so rough. I hope you can get the course work figured out. What classes might you have to take again?

crazy - Congrats on the internship!! Way cool. We will miss you at pg though!

peace - glad to hear you are getting around better! I hope you can avoid the surgery.

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

DoulaRN, well then I'll be starting from scratch too, or maybe by the time the M is older D will be able to afford to keep me a kept woman

Happy Birthday C and L!

Little S's had an appt for a sweat test today. Not fun at all and he ended up crying for about 10 minutes. And what's worse is I was all alone and he was so pissed at me. Well hopefully the test will show nothing (we don't want Cystic Fibrosis, thank you very much.)

My house is so messed up I don't even want to think about it.

Oh elm sorry. I can't remember how long it too to get the sweat test results, but E was younger so he really didn't care. Seriously how much can these kids put us through.

It's after 12 I'll take that margarita

It determines (somehow?) if he has Cystic Fibrosis or not. They clean his arm and then tape little electrodes to his arm, wait 5 minutes, then tape a thing that catches sweat over that. He has to be really hot (sweats, long sleeve shirts plus a sweater this morning) and sweaty for it to work. It's not painful, a little tickilish maybe, but when you're 2 and someone is holding your arm and putting things on it and you're hot and cranky, well it just sucks.
