Ok then we'll be there. 12:30 is late enough I'll have time to get the crockpot going, and figure out where the heck cook park is. We just have to leave no later than 2:30, but that should be fine, right??

And theoretically I need to do a massage by 6:30 pm tomorrow... Riiiiiiight....

Wow, glad I saw we went to page 4. I was just about to post it sounds like we are canceling!

Orion lost almost all of our eggs!!! He took them and hid them so well I have no idea where they are LOL! I did find at least a dozen, and they have nothing nearly as healthy as raisins in them!

BUT, the map of Cook Park makes it look huge. Did anybody ever say where exactly?!

Sorry Nadine. That has got to suck big time. Sending you relaxed vibes.

Yeah lisa, I thought if I did the healthy snack then the other ones could be treats, haha Although raisins are still treats around here cause of Otis's teeth.


Cook park is hugh but threre is only one playground so we should all meet there, the entrance to the park is long and you pass some soccer field both to your right and left.

We're going to come by for a bit, we'll be there early, though, like 12 and probably leave at 1-ish. We'll bring eggs, but if we miss the egg hunt it's no biggie! We'll leave the eggs for you all.

Hello westside mamas. Please tell me if I am out of my mind but is it possible to buy a house on the westside (way out) with minimum one acre for less that 150,000? To get an idea of how way out population needs to be less than 10,000. So suburbs are out, rural properties only.

Thanks!

Allison wife and mom to four.

Yes, it's possible. You'd likely be looking at a smaller house that needs some work in that price range, and there's a good chance you'd be looking for foreclosures or short sales, but it's possible. I haven't seen anything like that on the market out here (I'm in Cornelius) but there are a few houses in town on a quarter acre going for 125k or less depending on the condition of the property, so a little further out (Banks, North Plains, the outskirts of Cornelius and/or Forest Grove) it might be possible to find what you're looking for.

Thanks. We keep telling everyone that we are looking for a shack on some land. We can always add to/fix a house later but cannot add more land easily. Right now we are thinking we will stay in WA but way way westside is another option.

Maybe a manufactured home on some good land? Yurts are pretty cheap too.

I don't think we could do a yurt, though I would love to. We qualify for a USDA rural home loan and there are restrictions on the house, location, etc.

this thread was on page 3!!!

Mamas i am going through some heavy stuff lately.
on Sunday i started having some intense pain in my abdomen, i ignored it for a day, thinking it was a pulled muscle. it got worse and worse. Mo convinced me to call the Dr, who requested i come in and get looked at. i did, she poked me, made me cry in pain, and sent me for a CT scan. which revealed that i have something called panniculitis, which means the "good fat" that surrounds our guts and protects them, DIED. it hurts alot.
she called me yesterday and told me after reviewing my CT scan, she also saw a cyst on my pancreas.
so of COURSE i went and googled pancreatic cysts. NOT a good idea. so now i keep having lil mini anxiety attacks. and i am totally stressing out, thinking up all of the "what if's" and thinking how much i dont want to leave my girls mother less and my husband wifeless.
i am a wreck

i have an mri scheduled for the buttcrack of dawn on tuesday, then we will see if i need a biopsy, and go from there. i dont know what i need. Morgan has been a big help, taking care of the girls while i rest and try to just function as a human being, if i take pain meds to manage the pain, i am not really all that helpful in the parenting/human department, and if i dont take them, i am crying in pain doing daily tasks. this has really hit me hard, all within a week.
if anyone wanted to come play with the girls for a while on Sunday or Wednesday or friday or saturday (next not tomorrow) those are the days Mo will be working this week, he has had to totally re-arrange his schedule for the Drs visits, CT scans, the upcoming MRI, and now we dont know if there will be a biopsy, or what....
i am watching the girls sleeping right now, and praying to the fates/stars/goddess/everything that this is just some fluid filled benign cyst from too much sugar, or being such a curvy chick, or SOMETHING other than a cancerous or precancerous tumor. i cant imagine leaving my girls without a mother.
