KaraBoo- Most of us just invited ourselves to the group. If you like it, feel comfy and can deal with our wackiness then come on over sometime.

I went Christmas shopping today by accident. Mervyns is 40-50% off everything. Took the kids for shopping for DH. He's done and I almost have the Wii stuff under my belt.

Here is what we did today. Pediatrician for both kids, got oil changed (walked around furniture store while that was going on), mall shopping at mervyns, JCPenneys, Game stop etc, lunch at the mall ( i never really got lunch myself), Dairy Queen, Carosel ride and LOOOONG walk back to the car.

I am sooo beat !!!

Last night was great! Very much needed and so fun to see everyone! Thanks Doularn for the ride and I owe someone (either Doularn or COMommy) some money. Just let me know how much!

I had the weirdest dream where Blue gave me some money to take C shopping for a Christmas present (for C and it wasn't weird that she was asking me to do that) and then dh and I headed out to the mall with my 2, C and eventually another little girl, a little boy named Ian and Kermit's F. Everyone was really well behaved and even dh enjoyed himself. Very weird.

Blue, we use Animal Parade AcidphiKids priobiotic with Little S.

Elm- I paid for your dinner but have no idea how much so don't worry about it.

At work today.... I'm kinda sleepy.

Thanks Doularn. I owe you lunch then! I meant to pay you after you got back to the table (for once I actually had cash) but was kind of out of it at the time.

Prayers needed for my niece. She was spiking temps all day (up to 102) which in a normal kid, no biggie, but with her, very bad. Since her hubby is really busy with their new restraunt, dh took them to Urgent Care to run some blood tests and make sure she's not really sick. He left here at 4 and now it's almost 7 and I've heard nothing.

Dh got home at 10:30. They did a chest xray and it was exactly how SIL thought it would be (not sure if that's clear or just normal for K.) Blood tests weren't in, but they think it's not a secondary infection, so that's good. Just a lot of BS at the urgent care and waiting around. Next time, SIL will just call the pulmonologist they see. She has is cell number but hates bothering him on the weekend unless K is really bad.

So we think my grandmother has Guillain Barre syndrome/disease. Apparently she was fine Friday and now can barely walk The doctor however wants to "wait and see" how things progress : She is an old (but healthy) woman what are they waiting on.

I'm trapped at home all day waiting "on my blow" : I could do tomorrow though. Thurs, and Fri are out.


M clapped this morning, she didn't realize what she did but was all excited when I got happy.

Eman. I hope she's okay. And yeah for clapping!

We're out for this week. Tomorrow I have so much baking to do (I'm bringing homemade rolls and cake for Thanksgiving) and I think S has a cold. I'm hoping that it will be gone by Thursday or else I'm on the hook for dinner too.

{{HUGS}} emans! I've known someone with that disease and it was a long recovery, and that was in someone who was only 35. I hope your gma gets whatever treatment they have to offer!

I can do pg if we do it tomorrow (wed).

Oh, and emans I hope you have fun with your "blow". It's going to be a hard one, right? LOL

Ohhh you missed it at MNO then. We are getting insulation blown into our attic today. They refer to it as "our blow". He said we were going to have a hard blow (because of the crawlspace). That our blow would take about 2 hours....... You get the idea, I was tring to not be a 12 year old on the phone when he was telling me all this, but really it was quite funny.


So anything for tomorrow then?

Just popping in briefly to say C had her surgery today and did great. She slept for a few hours once we got home, and is now in the mei tai on DH helping him make soup for dinner (corn chowder). I'll update you all later, but her new teeth look great, and we wish we had found this dentist over a year ago - he could have totally saved her teeth!!! The last dentist did a hack job on her back fillings and they had cavities under them! :

Yay for the blow emans, and for your g-ma. Mine just got moved to a locked home because the last place got bought out and the new owner wasafraid of my grandmother.

Have fun thisa week, and i'm looking forward to PG next week!!!!

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

Glad it all went well Blue! And that sucks that she has cavities under fillings but I'm glad it was caught!

Anodyne came over and we dyed silks! Lots of fun, beautiful colors and some exhausted kids! Ds did a lot of heavy work (bin full of water to move around) and played in the freezing cold water almost the entire time.

that sounds like fun (the silks, not the cavities!)

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving

We had a busy day. HipStitch has a sewing class for homeschoolers on Tuesdays and we went to that. We had to rush home, eat lunch, and head over to the library for Pokemon League. DD is having a bit of a bumpy time lately with her friend...I don't understand why a friendship between a nearly10yr old and a 10yr old needs to be so complicated!! Lots of preteen drama from this other girl and we're all getting weary of it. DD's had her heart broken many times by this girl and I just don't know how much to interfere!

Oh I hated being 10. My friends and I fought all the time and then would make up in a second. All the drama just got old real quick!

Hugs to everyone. What a sucky week so far for you all.

I worked with a mama who miscarried 21 week twins today :

Elm- I would love to dye silks if you do it again. Glad you and Anodyne are getting some time together. Good for both of you.

Going to sleep so I can go back for more tomorrow.

ARGH! Little S's diaper rash is back! I think he might have eaten to much corn yesterday (1.5 cobbs) but it's also looking a little yeasty. I am frickin sick of this!

Also, now both kids have runny noses and coughs and are sneezing. Guess we're not going to Thanksgiving afterall (it's at my SIL's house, the one with the baby on the vent.)

Doularn, that poor mama.

So for all you old timers, I saw Xmas today The weee bab is sooo cute he has the most amazing eye lashes.


Doularn, that is terrible.


Elm, try to enjoy the fact that you don't have to participate in the craziness, has S seen anyone about the rash? Maybe a new perspective......

The only one he's seen about the rash was our doc. He said yeast. The rash started though when he passed the corn so I'm thinking he might have an allergy to that in large amounts (cause we need another one.) It looks yeasty in nature so I'm switching off Monistat and Triple Paste and I think when he wakes from nap I might wash his bum off with some diluted grapefruit seed extract. If it continues, I'm going back to the doc.

And I will somewhat enjoy not being with crazy people but I feel really bad for my SIL who will be stuck with her parents and her brother and his wife (whom she does not get along with at all!)
