Alright, then I'll get there at 11ish too. I think it might be just the two of us (and maybe Doularn.)

Why oh why do kids cut their own hair????? Dd cut a big chunk out of the back. I can hide it, but errrrrrr. And C cut his own hair. His isn't that bad and it's so short it will be fine. But, dd.... She said "oopsie." It was finally growing out from when C cut it a year ago. Ugh

COMommy and Rach on the hair.

Sorry we missed you today at the park! I took the kids and the puppy down to get him shots and chipped. It took two *long* hours to get it done. Poor Z has been feeling miserable from teething (four front teeth at once!!) so it was joyful. I could use a break too.

COMommy - YAY on the job! I hope it keeps going well.

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

Sorry I missed the park. I found a birthday party invite yesterday in L's back pack, so we had to go shoping for a present. Signed the kiddos up for swimming lessons, and tried to find a GPS for this trip. Met Dh after work and got 2 more sleeping bags. Temps will be in the 40s at night. Can I mention how I hate sleeping bags. They make me claustraphobic and not to mention I am to friggin fat for them. Should be a great trip. FYI tomorrow is the scratch and dent sale at REI for anyone interested. I will be back to work....

COMommy, what is in the air? I'm sorry.

To those interested in the boy clothes my sister sent, I'll make a post on the other board.

I just came to the realization that the wedding I'm going to tonight will basically be a high-school reunion for me. Joy...

Hi, everyone.


I feel so alone and isolated over here, but so far mostly good, or at least it could be a lot worse. Tomorrow should be lots of fun, not.


Blue glad the puppy got chipped.

What is up with all the hair cutting, hopefully it will be out of everyones systems before we get back.

Have fun at the wedding Elm. High school reunion huh? I feel like the last 20 years didn't happen when I'm here. I miss the green but man I do love where we live

Mom to ds 9 dd 7 : and dd 3/08 : if I can I go to

So two hours before I was supposed to get in the car my MIL canceled no explaination, not that it matters but still, R is heartbroken, there is some sort of petting zoo around here I'm going to try to find and they opened a Dunkin Donuts so maybe goats and sugar will help her . I mean really what does she have going on in her messed up little head that she can't see her grandkids for a few hours every few years. I know I rant about my mother but she really makes an effort when it comes to the kids.


ASF I get back Thursday night. I'm not sure if that means I'll be on the couch on Friday or if I'll be at the park needing to get the kids out.


Other than mom being mom things are going well.


Comommy glad to hear Codaddy's job sounds good, that is such a huge relief.

Mom to ds 9 dd 7 : and dd 3/08 : if I can I go to

Eman, hope the rest of your trip goes well. That's really uncool of your MIL.

The wedding was fine. It was actually pretty great until Little S kicked the flower girl in the face. They were playing and she was laying down on the ground, so of course he HAD to kick her. I don't understand kids. The high school reunion part went okay. I wasn't friends with these people and I'm not sure anyone recognized me, which is how I survived high school.

ASF, I'd like to do *something* today, but that could be anything. Call me if you want to get together.

I'm fine with swimming on Wednesday as long as we go to a zero scape pool. Little S has to much confidence and not enough skill for anything else without my hubby around.

Mama of three.

elm - dh took a half day to do the first day of camp with C - he didnt trust them to be competent enough with HIS LITTLE GIRL. He had to monitor it to see it was okay to leave her the rest of the week. When she gets home i will see if she is up to doing anything or is too beat. She had to get up at 7 and went to bed at midnight.

emans - that stinks about your mil - i dont get why these mils dont want to see these beautiful grandkids whenever they can

comommy - we may be able to meet wednesday - again it depends on how tired she is after 3 hours of vball etc. She gets out at 12ish...

Maybe we should just hold off on trying to swim until next week. I just looked at our schedule and we have stuff every day this week, so I'd be ok just meeting on Fri. I always swear that I'm not going to overschedule and somehow it just happens.

We really do need to plan another MNO soon. Maybe drinks on a patio somewhere???

I think we are totally out until next week. We have been in major survival/stress mode here lately. Luckily MIL is *supposed* to come tomorrow for several days, which should really help with the stress level.

It's cool ASF. I figured that she was probably tired. And I ended up doing a huge organizing job in my living room anyway so all is well.

Happy birthday! Have a fun trip!

Nana has been here less than 24 hours, and already my stress level is way down. I am seriously considering moving to be closer to the woman for the extra help she gives.... Now if only FIL wasn't part of the package :
