Nichole I use Simple Green. I got it at Fred Myer with the other carpet cleaning solutions. It does need diluted though.

I'm starting to wonder, although I haven't tested yet. But the lack of milk and the not picking up in that arena does make me wonder. I also have been HUNGRY lately.

But stranger coincidences have occurred in the past, so I'm giving it a little bit of time. But if things are still weird this time next week, I guess I'll test.

Speaking of being pregnant, does anyone think it's weird that I am saving the pregnancy tests from Lilith? I put them in a little box while I was packing...

Hi, I'm Carrie, I live in Vancouver, and I thought I should try to brave the Big Thread this month. I don't have a computer at home, so posts from me will probably be erratic. I'm stealing some internet time at the in-laws' house right now while the little one plays outside w/ them.

Y'all have probably met me if you've been into Milagros on a weekend lately -- I work there Fridays through Mondays. I have a 2 year old son and a husband (and a dog and cat).

We use tape -- lots of masking tape. And furniture. And onestepahead.com has some nifty plug protectors for things that are plugged in that I was going to get, but luckily (knock on wood) the kiddo seems to be leaving things alone for the time being.

Yes, yes, YES! Please. I loathe HFCS. My son reacts to it SO strongly. It's like giving him crack. I can only imagine what it does to his poor body. I'd love to have a get together where he could actually have fun w/out me having to police every bite he takes. Although he does have to avoid dairy, too...

I will be making plans to be out of the house, but would like to offer a suggestion about what to use to clean the floor other than degreaser. Sigh!

I survived the floor being replaced yesterday. ALL DAY! I have to be away when she's cleaning though...Sigh again...

Thanks for your help ladies!
BioKleen's Bac Out! It's great, low suds, and smells like limes. : And it's made here locally. I can't say enough great things about the stuff. And you can get it by the gallon.

I just saw Kids'n'pets at FM. It says that it's non toxic, bio degradable. I haven't used it so I don't know how well it works. The bottle did say that it could be used in a carpet cleaner.

I second Bac-Out for carpet cleaning. Doesn't leave a sticky residue or a chemical smell. I'll have to buy a gallon of it if I move to a place with a carpet (please, gods, no).

Have you had a pp AF yet? Just wondering when your period is due.

If I remember correctly Hedy is the one who has problems with cramps and was taking Magnesium to help with that. And isn't Ruby 2?

If it is something you keep for the other kids.. then it is not weird at all. I guess it's not really weird even if you didn't keep it. s

C'mon, didn't we just start a calender? She said she was due in 3 days that day we were all talking about it. 2-3 days ago, I think.

That's too bad Beth, because you're in it. You started the same day as Pauline, it turns out.

Let me know if you still don't have it in a few minutes, if Eliza got it then I'm sure that everyone must have.

Post your periods here ladies, or on the calender, and we'll follow AF as she travels through the mamas. Looks like we do have a cluster going on.

Since two people got it, I'm wondering if it got caught in some spam filters. The "invite" is kind of junk mail looking, it's a form letter.

It's not public. PM me your email again. I know yours is one of those that are impossible to forget, but I managed to.

Also, I sent this to the MDC google group, so if you're not in it you won't get it....
