Morning everyone,
Well the meds. helped. Now I am just very tired this morning. So I guess I will be taking a nap sometime today. No big plans for today, other than working out and going to my TOPS meeting this evening.
Hanna, glad that you are getting some answers too! Sounds like you had a busy day yesterday. Glad it ended on a happy note. Hope your dentist appointment goes well!
GG, thanks for the info. I might have to check into that about the chirocoptor and that one x-ray.
Hi to everyone else! I must go now and get ready to eat my breakfast and run into town real quick for my dh. He just told this. So I will check back with everyone later!
Have a great day!
Take care,

Morning all... I just wanted to say I hope you all have good day today.

Kerry, glad you're feeling a little better. It's hard to get through your days when you hurt.

Talk to you later!! :)

07-08-2008, 10:17 AM
Mornin' All!

Poppy, Hope you have a better day today!

Kerry, Glad you're feeling better!

Hanna, Sucks that they have to keep tweaking Sean's meds.

Have a great day all!

07-08-2008, 12:07 PM
hi everyone!

Kerry I hope you do have a chance to take a nap!

Lauren have a good day at work today. I know it is a shame how the meds keep changing for Sean but I guess this is very common among bipolar children, they're bodies change and so those their chemestry... I really feel bad for him.

Christina and Poppyseeds :wave:

I am getting ready to go the dentins, I really hate going....

See you guys later!


07-08-2008, 12:21 PM
Christina, LOL, no, got here in the normal amount of time! :)

07-08-2008, 12:27 PM
Hi guys,

Well, we are still par for the course here. The doctor said that Cass's foot seems to be fine and he would just leave it alone. If she gets worse then we will see about an orthopedic. He says that when children hurt themselves this young they seem to forget how to walk the right way. Just to give it time and she should go back to walking correctly.

Lauren: I'm glad you were able to get to work in a normal amount of time today!!

Hanna: I'm sorry that Sean is having a rough time. It makes it so tough on Mom when the little ones are struggling.

Kerry: So glad to hear that the meds are helping. I hope you find a good long term solution to the headaches.

I hope everyone has a great day today!!

07-08-2008, 02:23 PM
just a quick hello,

Karen, I hope the dr. is right about Cass' foot. Does the limping seem to bother her or does it seem painful (beyond the fact that she limps)?

Hanna, good luck at the dentist, hope it is over quickly.

poppyseeds, hope work goes better for you today. I forgot if you said earlier, are you actively looking for another job?

Kerry, great to hear the meds worked!

Kinda rainy here today, I think I will do a little cooking and take it easy. My knee is bugging me from my run yesterday :( I think I will just do the non-impact part of my pilates videos. Not very much cardio, but I should listen to my body. Will have to be super-vigilant with my eating today, I made choc. chip cookies last night and I always eat too much cookie dough. :( No food sticker for me, but I came in at just over 2000 calories, so it wasn't horrible I suppose. I won some sort of "gourmet meal" and they come out to the house and cook for you and two friends (if you want). They are coming out tonight, I am kind of curious about the whole thing. The "catch" is they want to show you how glorious their cookware is, so you have to watch them cook the whole time. Should be interesting...

07-08-2008, 02:27 PM
Happy Tuesday everyone! :)

All is well thus far. Just taking a break on the computer between kid responsibilities. :comp: I have one at summer school until mid-afternoon. :book2: My youngest is still asleep. :sssh: And my oldest skipped one of his summer college classes. He just walked through the house half-asleep and crashed again. He had rehearsals for a local production last night until very late. He's like a zombie right now. :tired:

07-08-2008, 02:33 PM
Afternoon Everyone,
Well no nap for me yet. I went into town with my dh and then came home. I did my 3 mile walking dvd. Just got my shower, got dressed and eat my lunch. So now I am free for the rest of the day, until I go to my TOPS meeting. So hopefully I can squeeze in a nap here shortly. Still feel a little tired.
Poppyseeds, hope you have a better day at work. That sucks when your boss is rude and thinks he can get away with it.
Lauren, glad that you got to work in a timely fashion this morning. Hope the rest of your day goes smooth. Did you start painting any yet?
Christina, hope today isn't super busy for you. Sounds like you dove into being busy again after a nice holiday weekend.
Hanna, hope that your denist appointment goes well for you. Hope they can get Sean's meds. straightened out again. It must be rough on him to have these changes going on inside of him and he really doesn't know what is going on.
Karen, that is great that Cassie's foot is fine. I hope that she starts walking on it soon. Hope you have a great day too!
Hi to everyone else. Hope that you are all having a great day! I think I am off to take me a little nap now. I'll check back in with you all later. Have a wonderful afternoon!
Take care,

07-08-2008, 04:14 PM
Kerry, HAHAHAHA :rofl: You thought I'd start painting soo soon after buying the paint? Silly girl, not until at least next weekend! :lol3:

07-08-2008, 04:36 PM
hi !
I just got back from the dentist and running a couple or errands. The denstis didn't have good news, I have to go get a root canal :yikes:

I am very tired, I am going to wait for Sean to come from school and I am going to see if he can go plat at a neighbors house, I am going to take a nap!

See you all later


07-08-2008, 05:34 PM
Happy2be - I just had a root canal not too long ago. It was easy enough. I hate the dentist. I cry on the way. So... if I can do it you can do it!! LOL

Mama - I am signed up with several different temp services for direct placements but haven't heard from them. I need P/T thru the summer and can start F/T in the fall. Temp agencies don't really do part time so I just have to call them when I'm ready. I also have my resume on Monster and careerbuilder and I'll be sending out my resume daily once I can do F/T. It's not worth getting a P/T job for 7 weeks. I don't have the energy to do the interviewing and everything for another P/T job.

My day was awful because I got in a fight with my boss and he went and told my boss that I have an attitude problem. I guess I do when he's involved BUT I asked him nicely for something and he just started arguing with me. The man's a nutbag.

I hate being miserable. I'm usually a very 'up' person... I enjoy doing things and meeting new people but that guy just brings out the worst in me.

07-08-2008, 06:20 PM
Good afternoon......

I just finished the 25 min workout. I figured I would balance between the 45 and 25 min workout during the week. I got on the scale this morning and I have dropped 3.5 pounds since I weighed on Thursday. So I am kindof happy about that. :carrot:

I am getting back on track and so proud of myself. I just hope I can stick with it.

I am glad to hear that everyone is doing better today. Talk to yall soon.


07-08-2008, 06:32 PM
OHHHH Fergi!! Congrats on the 3.5!! Awesome news!!!

:hug::flow2::flow1::cheer3::cheer2::congrat::cheer ::yay:

07-08-2008, 07:09 PM
Hanna, :hug: about your root canal, I had to have one last year. It wasn't too bad during the actual surgery, but my jaw was really sore afterward.

Congrats fergi!!! progress feels soooooo good! :D :carrot: :D :cheer3:

07-08-2008, 07:52 PM
Hey girls!!

Fergi, congrats on the weight loss!!

Hope everyone is having a good day today. Dropped kids off at VBS, then ran a few errands. MIL picked them up & they're sleeping over her house. I will get them after VBS tomorrow. DH came home from work at 4:30 and we had a nice afternoon, if you know what I mean ;)
He's getting ready to grill some steaks while I make the rest of dinner, then I thin we'll watch a movie, maybe go for a walk.

Okay, I'll check in tomorrow and respond to everyone. HOpe you all have a super night!!


07-08-2008, 08:00 PM
Thank you for the congrats.:thanks:

07-08-2008, 08:12 PM

Well I finally went out and got my run in, whooeeee its a warm humid one out there. I didn't get to run yesterday, DH wanted to get paint and all those goodies to start working on the computer/tv room for the kids and instructed me I needed to start cleaning carpets. So when I was ready to go run last night he told me he wanted me to stay home with him and watch a movie. So no exercise for me yesterday. My eating isn't too fantastic with him home either.

fergi, :high::high::high::high::high:way to go girl!

Hanna, sorry about the dentist thing, bummer

Lauren, I would have been happy to wait til the weekend, DH says we'll be done tomorrow. He keeps forgetting that I do have a life outside of him. I'll be gone most of the day tomorrow, silly boy.

kerry, I had headaches for years I know how they can knock you on your rump and keep you down for days. Give yourself some rest time.

Karen, I have a friend who has a 11 year old and he got his leg broken last year during recess, another boy jumped on top of him playing football and cracked that sucker in two places and he walked strange while he had his cast on and my friend didn't think anything about it, but now he still walks kinda on his tippy toes and the dr. told her it was just gonna take some time for him to get back to "normal". He's not doing it near as bad as he was a couple of months ago.

Gotta go, try to check in tomorrow. Trish

07-08-2008, 08:15 PM
well for me work went well...except for my horrible migrane. Kerri..i had to think of you since i posted last night...but you know what i did...i made a late apt for my chiro. I left work an hr early (it was a 2 dr day) and got adjusted. My migrane is now pretty much gone. I swear by chiros definately.

congrats fergi...keep up the good work!!!!!

hannha-root canal isn't too bad...not horrible...but definately not a day at the beach LOL

alright all...dinner is ready.

07-08-2008, 08:22 PM
Hi All!
P- Congrats on the afternoon with the hubby...don't you love it when the inlaws take the kids? I had my son right after our first anniversary so we didn't get much time alone...but I have good parents and inlaws who even though they live in PA and NY and we are in VA, they help out when they can...enjoy your evening!

Kerry- You should definitely read the number series when you are feeling better...I raced through them...easy, mystery, and funny all in one!

Fergi- congrats on the loss...i am sure that makes you feel just awesome. way to go!

GG, Lauren, Hanna, Sunshine, Poppy , Trish and all the rest, Hello and hope your week is going well.

The kids did pretty well today and have been behaving...the cold seems to be getting better. Tomorrow I help out at the daycare taking the kids on their field trip to the pool. Allie will stay there and Nate and his friends get to go.
She started on sweet potatoes tonight and seemed to love it...lets hope she doesn't inherit her mom's love of food...any food :)

Take care all!

07-08-2008, 10:24 PM
hi everyone!
My tooth is throbbing tonight!
I have a bad headache too.

Fergi congratulations on the loss!

Trish it is a wonderful feeling when DH wants you to be w/him! that is great. Forget the calories when you have great moments like that!

Pam enjoy the time w/DH too!

Poppyseeds that is not right, is that considered harassment? you should check into that. People like that should be reprimanded.

DH is home tomorrow, I have no clue what we are going to do, we are both very tired. We'll see...
Any way, see you guys tomorrow got to go figure out what to do for dinner.


07-08-2008, 10:42 PM
Hi Hanna... it's not harassment unless he's doing something to me that's related to sexual harassment or doing it because I'm a woman. I don't know why he's doing it and I wouldn't be able to prove it either except that he does it to all the women and not the men. All of the women hate him. The difference is I'm the only one that he manages. He is not their boss so they don't have to do jobs/projects for him. I do. Bleah.

Oh well... 7 more weeks and I can find another job. The countdown is on. LOL

07-08-2008, 11:36 PM
Fergi, congrats on your weight loss! Way to go! Keep up the good work!
Pam, enjoy your time with your dh! I bet that doesn't happen too often.
Hanna, sorry that your tooth is killing you this evening. I will send positive thoughts your way and lots of hugs. Enjoy your day tomorrow with your dh.
Trish, will you need a vacation after your dh goes back to work? LOL Sounds like he has you busy this week.
GG, glad that your headache went away. I will have to check into who is a good chirocopator around my area. Thanks for the tip!
Erin, I have the first one in my library book bag. So I hope that I can get to it before I have to take it back. Glad your cold is getting better. Enjoy your fieldtrip tomorrow!
Poppyseeds, sorry your boss was a jerk to you today! Glad you have the countdown going for you to look for another job. Hope he isn't a butthead the whole seven weeks to you though! Stay strong, even when you want to just let him have it!
Hi to everyone else! Hope you are all having a great evening! Well I went to TOPS this evening and lost 3.25 pounds. So I am happy. I guess I finally figured out how to manage my food and exercise for once. So I better stick with it and hopefully more pounds will come off. I would atleast like to be 20 pounds lighter when school starts. Opposed to what I was when it ended.
Well I must head off to bed. I have a dentist appointment in the morning at 8:30. So I need to get up early so I can get my excerise in and then get ready for my appointment. So I will chat with you all tomorrow.
Take care,
