I like your thread titles. I was trying to think of something good earlier, but I think my brain is just mush now.

Love it.

Going to hang with the midwives today ! Not sure how long it will last, the rest of my life is really falling apart.

But got renters for Ohio, just waiting for the check !

So dh and S1 are both sick. S2 is a little wonky, but nothing worth noting.

I can't wait for Friday. I'll really need it by then.

I need MNO.

No midwifery today, I emailed them Monday and told them of whats been up of late and apparently they want to meet with me before i start, and I guess its if I start. But I didnt know that until I got there this morning. I may have screwed up the whole thing by sending the email.

I am going to go to a movie by myself and cry, and cry and cry, I mean continue to cry.

Doularn - I dunno whats wrong but I wanted to offer you hugs!!!

Any of you use the public school system? I ask because I was wondering if you had heard about Obamas live broadcast to the kids on 9/8?

NY haven't heard of the broadcast, don't know if it will be aired at our school.

Yeah, it seems like it lately. MIL comes for about a week every month. And this month my mom is showing up for a week. It is also Z's 1st birthday (!!!).

Highlights of last week: we went hiking in the mountains and found some wild raspberries (Sooooo yummy!!). DH started classes this week and I was certain I was going to go insane the first day being left alone for 5+ hours. And we got 10 eggs in one day (we are averaging around 6 right now).

ASF - Before I forget, which tea house have you taken big C to before? I was thinking it would be fun to try with my C.

Rach - Yep, can't believe it has been a year already! Welcome back from your trip.

Emans - We have 10 hens for sure, an unknown, and 1 rooster, for a full dozen. I have to take some photos of the eggs sometime soon, they are sooo pretty!

We have a new minivan....well new to us. We shouldn't be getting stuck at emans house anymore. I'm a little uneasy about having a car payment again, but it's so nice to be driving something that I'm not afraid is going to randomly die.

I should be good for MNO. I need to remember to tell dh though. I'm good with bringing whatever is needed for food.

I cant get an answer from my dh if he will be home for me to come to mno. The communication is virtually nothing, so if I come I will call and see what you need. It may just be me needing a rather strong drink showing up.

Also, Eman will your kids be there, Can I come with kids?

I'm good with bringing whatever. Does anyone mind just doing a potluck? We could get a couple of Costco pizzas and then everyone bring a side to go with it. Or whatever, I'm flexible. I also can bring tequila and margarita mix since I have the huge bottles from costco. LOL Someone will need to bring ice and a blender though cause mine sucks.

Doularn, you can always bring C over here. Well, L too but he'd be bored since there are no kids his age here.

I don't want to make anything, but I'll happily buy a side from Costco (I love Costco.) Tomorrow is shaping up to be a hectic day. I'll also bring some Sprite or 7-Up for the none drinkers (am I the only one?) and maybe the rest of you could mix it with something.

I'm cool with a potluck/Costco plan. I'll grab pizza or something. I have ice and a blender.

DoulaRN, my kids will be alseep (or at least they will be in bed).


COmommy you can't post new car stuff without info.

Blue Collectabiltea (or however it's spelled) went out of business last month.
