That's so cute Lee! I'm glad you got to start the thread! I was up with strawberries last night...getting ready to make some strawberry jam!<br><br>
We went raspberry picking yesterday w/friends at Kruger's. I'm hoping to get lots more done.<br><br>
I'm actually excited about stuffing my freezer and stocking my shelves!<br><br>
Well there is that excitement of preserving food for our family and then there is this little babe growing inside of me that will soon greet us...in about 5 weeks(give or take)!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Happy July everyone!<br><br>
I'm happy that DH's big project at his new work got put on hold so no travel (he was planning to travel to Northern California every other week for 4 days) in the foreseeable future!<br><br>
I'm so relieved that as of today, our whole family has medical and dental <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:<br><br>
I'm excited that my mom will be visiting for a week starting Sunday and we are going to Seaside for 4 days of it.<br><br>
I'm so thrilled Indy will be four in less than 2 months and that he will start preschool three mornings a week in September!<br><br>
Here's to hoping that the weather stays in the 80's because we were severely hurting here with no AC... The weekend was exceptionally hard on Gracie because it was so hot she did not get regular naps at all, stumbled around and got way too many bangs and falls for her little body.<br><br>
Off to get breakfast going for all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat">: Have a great day!

<div style="font-style:italic;">Oh... Ericka, honey! It sounds like you have a bad infection. Call the dentist, pronto, and tell them about it! That isn't normal for a root canal. There should be after hours, or on-call dentists, at least I would hope.<br><br>

they gave me a strong dose of penicillin and more vicoden. my right side is still really swollen, but my left side isn't...but man all those lymph node spots still hurt like a [email protected](*&.<br><br><br>
ON A GOOD NOTE....<br><br>
Campbell had her 2 yr exam yesterday. She is <b>22lbs</b> and in the <b>5%</b> and <b>32.5in</b> tall and in the <b>25%</b>.<br>
They are <b>NO LONGER</b> concerned about her weight <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:<br>
However, we have a video EEg on the 12th at Emanuel which we could be there for upto 4days. This is to decipher wether she is having seizures or sleep apnea or just breath holding spells. It's also to monitor behavior and get what really happens on video. Which I am completely glad for, cause I want to get to the root of this problem, we have been dealing with this for almost a year now.<br>
We also discussed vaccines. The doctor is SOOO comfortable with delaying them.<br>
Let me just say, I <span style="color:#FF0000;"><b>LOVE</b></span> <span style="color:#000000;">Dr. Anne Vestegarrd at Broadway Medical Clinic.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:</span>

is it normal for a child to be obsessed(sp?) with trains?<br><br>
OH MY is my child ever obsessed with thomas the train. We have a train table that I bought her for her birthday and she has lots of tracks...some thomas, some target's learning tree, some melissa and doug. We have to have about 50 trains, if not more.<br>
She wakes up talking about trains and goes to bed talking about trains. The other day during the thunderstorm, she thought the thunder was a train and kept looking for it.<br>
We also have thomas books, movies, a train hat, a thomas interactive phone, magnet set, books on cd and so forth.<br><br>
I kinda wanted her to be into girly things...does that sound bad? Like I bought her that kitchen at Christmas with all the wooden food...and it doesn't ever get touched. Or she got some cool tea sets for her birthday and doesn't have an interest in them. Not even into her baby dolls anymore...she'll play with her doll sling though..and put trains into it.<br><br>
the other day she had a gift card to Target and she picked out cars :/<br>
I love her...but I'm not into trains and I am trying to be <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> I just wish I could play dolls or tea parties with her :/

<div style="font-style:italic;">I got that sheet of paper while I was out today and was able to find a food bank to help me from that list.<br>
Yes, Jim and I are actually married. I told them at DSHS we had no food and they still would not give us expedited processing because DH had income in June. Never mind that he hadn't received a paycheck since June 6th... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> If I'd waited until July 1st to apply we could have gotten our benefits the same day. But my caseworker told me that at the end of our appointment. Sigh.<br>
I was told by the WIC intake person that very same thing, and was told with a very solemn voice that many, many people are in the exact same position my family is. It makes me feel so sad for everyone, because I know what a weight it is for me to carry.<br><br>
I just have to say that I am so, so thankful to have this community. I have gotten so many sweet PMs, and Lyla stopped by with food and Tiffany sent me some PayPal and a mama I have never met offered more help...I'm just really overwhelmed feeling the love here. I just really want you all to know that I appreciate it so much. You guys rock the hardest, seriously.</div>

I am so grateful that I get WIC and help from the state.<br>
I lost my job 3 weeks ago, so my brother is the only one bringing in income right now. We're struggling too. Although, because there is only two of us and campbell, we don't eat that much and we get $425 in food stamps and while we do run out in the middle of the month..I always try to stock up to last us to the 5th. We're cutting it really close right now. Nothing fresh...but I think we'll make it to Saturday. I'm hoping that my blueberries raspberries ripen soon...then I can pick fresh berries off my back porch <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat">:<br>
the only thing campbell is missing right now is bananas. It's her favorite and well...just not in the budget.

<div style="font-style:italic;">so. you know, it's real cute when your kid asks why, why, why... for oh about 6 months. now, it's extremly annoying, because he's looping... he asks a whole series then repeats the whole thing. i try to be sooo nice and answer them all, but im getting too exasperated. i tell him that he already knows, that he just asked, i just told him, and to stop repeating questions so many times. i feel so bad, i was probably like that and hated feeling annoying and then just did it more and still felt bad... but i answer honestly and completely, and he can ask for HOURS and HOURSZ.... i suppose i could change the subject? he's such a talker, i don't always want to talk for HOURS every afternoon... especiually when he must lead and control the conversation, he will even tell me what to say, 'can y ou say that, c an you can you'?<br><br>
so...<br>
why is that car stopped? why does the light go green-yellow-red and not red-yellow-green, why does an up arrow mean go straight, why do some people honk, why do some people like red cars, why do some trucks have wheels that they do not use, why are brakes loud, why does the train not go on the road and the cars on tracks? why do some cars have 3 red lights and some have 5 red lights and some trucks have no yellow lights? why?<br><br>
what would happen if we drove off the road? what would happen if we saw the police? what would happen if i threw my shoes? what would happen if i ate my shoes? what would happen if cats wore shoes? ....<br><br>

Our insurance used to cover Dr. Shu at Shoebox Dental in Bethany village. He's very nice with great staff. A zillion miles away from us and stuff (in the building where I used to work), but very nice....<br><br>
SO...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> all around, and please contact me offline if you think of me? I'll try to keep up, but it's not something I'm, as Savvy would put it, manifesting for myself. I'm manifesting 78-degree weather every day and rain at night for my plants. I'm manifesting an awesome used bike with the stupid rebate check we finally got. And I'm trying to manifest sanity for our pending trip to Utah. And playdates. Playdates? PLAYDATES!!<br><br>

Well there is that excitement of preserving food for our family and then there is this little babe growing inside of me that will soon greet us...in about 5 weeks(give or take)!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"></div>

<div style="font-style:italic;"><a href="http://www.kbadgerdds.com/" target="_blank">Krista Badger</a> was pretty good, and I found her from some other recs from the portland tribe. And it might be good to switch up the gender if he had a bad experience with Pike.</div>

i've heard good things about her too. i FINALLY got on the bandwagon and made an appointment for isaac at dr pike's for the end of this month. and then the next day he sees an optometrist to see if he needs glasses. our ped screened his vision at 20/50 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> we have neither vision or dental insurance so those visits are going to be a doozy. i'm choosing to do those things (and pay other bills) instead of paying my quarterly self-employment taxes. so that will hurt next spring too. i owe a whopping three grand to providence for my appendectomy (after insurance). we don't have it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> hello payment plan.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

that is great! and i hope you feel better. the trains in the sling thing is cute.<br><br><br><br>
tiff - don't feel guilty about stressing. ebin is still getting most of his calories from bm. my mom was here last week to babysit because i had a conference to attend. she said 'he doesn't really eat much!' he's 13 months today. at this time isaac was really chowing down on the solids....i think because i worked full time and he just didn't dig bottles.<br><br><br><br>
july! we just did most of our fun things in june. i'm just looking forward to the flowers blooming in the yard. playing with the kids. loving the summer sun!!!

Awe, Lovely Sunny July - I love it!<br><br><br>
Last Friday I was taking my sweet time at the ATM while the machine beep beep beeped at me to take my card back. Whatever - I have a toddler, beeping means nothing to me. BUT, I should have paid closer attention because it sucked back my card. Yesterday I called USBank to get it back, but because my address has changed they're considering it a stolen card. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: The account number is no good, all of my automatic payments will need to be changed, I have to go to a branch location to get a new card.. ARGH! Stupid stupid. She even asked if the PIN was away from the card and safe, if I had signed the back, etc. WTF? The card is safe in the ATM, right? Why are you worrying about me signing the back, it wasn't Stolen! Grrr.<br><br>
Um.<br><br>

SO...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> all around, and please contact me offline if you think of me? I'll try to keep up, but it's not something I'm, as Savvy would put it, manifesting for myself. I'm manifesting 78-degree weather every day and rain at night for my plants. I'm manifesting an awesome used bike with the stupid rebate check we finally got. And I'm trying to manifest sanity for our pending trip to Utah. And playdates. Playdates? PLAYDATES!!<br><br>
Sara...?</div>

Hey! No fair! I'm stuck responding to a quote written by someone who won't be back to check. I think I probably should have a playdate soon. The only trouble is the playroom is up in the attic, which gets really hot towards the end of the day. Yeah, the kids could hang out and have fun downstairs, but they'd have significantly more fun up in the awesome playroom. I'll have to think about it.

Sav, Dr Royse is who Addy sees for toothly stuff. she loves him, he is kind and gentle and so is his staff. they have a great play space, and they are really patient for kids who are anxious.<br>
he talked Addy through everything. letting her feel all his tools, and even let her hold the spitty sucker thingy by herself when she asked to. it is a great place.<br>
and its downtown <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

<div style="font-style:italic;">Happy July everyone!<br><br>
I'm happy that DH's big project at his new work got put on hold so no travel (he was planning to travel to Northern California every other week for 4 days) in the foreseeable future!<br><br>
I'm so relieved that as of today, our whole family has medical and dental <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:</div>

<div style="font-style:italic;">I think it's a distinct possibility. It took me a day to read/quote from this past Thursday on...and while I try to post, Milo is chasing Zel as a zombie saying "brains brains" while she giggles and runs...I don't feel super worthy to stay home if I'm thinking about sneaking off to catch up with my lady friends.<br><br>
I like that! When do we see you?</div>
</td>

Honey, when you stay home is EXACTLY when you think about sneaking off to catch up with lady friends. 'Cause when else do you get anything resembling an adult conversation??<br><br>
You see me as soon as you say, "Play. Here. Now." or something <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> Actually, I thought of you the other day when we drove past your house...well, over the bridge, so close enough! Thought of dropping by, but I'm never sure if people are open to drive-by visits. Anyway, DH is home for the summer, and aside from a few too many dentist appointments, our days are wide open. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:

Isn't that a great feeling? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Even when you LIKE the in-laws, it's nice when the visit is over.
