Good morning all! Didn't want to confuse anyone by posting in yesterday's thread because I know some of you just look for the day of the week and click on it, lol. So here it is!

OK, today I don't have too much planned. Some light housework... I think I will work on my new cleaning list. I taped The practice last night so I'll watch it sometime today. Dinner tonight will be beef stroganoff... sounds good right now! I'm starting to get nervous about my appointment on thursday... seems to be coming way too fast. I just hope it doesn't hurt!!

Mel, I hope you get to the bottom of that acid reflux... sounds so painful! And my weekend after dh left went fine. It went fast actually... he'll be home this friday so I am looking forward to that! Also, he may be home much more very soon! If he puts in for day driving at his company maybe as early as next week he can be home everynight and every weekend!!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed and my prayers going! I want this soooo badly!

Penny, you crack me up... I'm finally being how hot I look huh? LOL! That is matter of opinion! But I will have dh take a pic of me this weekend so I can post an updated one. I'm almost 10 lbs lighter than the one in my avatar so maybe there will be some changes. And I think you will definitely be in the 150's by the time you get those clothes off of layaway! I am starting to do that too, buy smaller. Since all the summer stuff is on clearance I'm buying size 6 stuff for next year... I'm hoping next year is the best year ever for summer. I should be nice and toned if I workout like I'm suppose to and be at my personal goal weight. So a size 6 should be perfect I think. But it is a great motivator!

Cindi, you did sooo great yesterday! Keep it up! I'll tell you how I keep my kids out of my bed... when it used to storm they'd end up in our bed and believe me I have to have room to move so I cant stand them in bed with me, so instead of putting them in my bed I'd put bubba in bed with Ava and that works like a charm. I never hear a peep from them. In fact it stormed late last night and I put bubba in Ava's bed and all was fine, no matter how bad the storms get as long as they are together it doesn't bother them. But when the weather is fine they sleep in their own beds. If that won't work for you you can always set up a pallet on your floor so that they are close to you but not in your bed. I don't know how 5 people can fit in a queen size bed, lol. I have a queen and at times I feel me and DH is too much for it, LOL!

Ok, I'm off here for now unless someone snuck in on me,lol. TTYL!

09-06-2004, 11:20 AM
Hey girls!!

Good Morning!!

Hope you are all doing well!! Anyone have anything planned for Labor day?

QOTD: What is your favorite Personality trait that you have?

Answer: I like that I am able to look at things objectively and come to a conclusion after hearing all parts of a story.

FUN QOTD: What is your favorite Cartoon Character?

Answer: I loooveee Animaniacs and Johnny Bravo.

Spryng I bet you can't wait for DH to come home this weekend!! I know you will have a great time and I can't wait to see a new picture!!

My 2 year anniversary is tomorrow and we are going out for dinner and a movie. Nothing fancy, we were going to go stay at a nice hotel but we will miss the girls to much so we decided not to lol.

Anyway I need to get the house cleaned. Hope you all have a great day.

09-06-2004, 11:29 AM
Spryng, I will keep my fingers crossed that DH is home soon and gets the day driving job. That would be awesome for you and the kids. I can't imagine how much you miss him when he's gone.

Michelle, congrats on the Two year anni coming up!!! YEAH!!! I have to think about those qotd's

Penny, thanks for your concern. I don't want bugga to have anything wrong with him, but at least it might be an answer to our troubles.

09-06-2004, 11:39 AM
Good morning.QOTD: Do you have any tattoo's, and if you can, tell us where.
Yes, I have two. One on my ankle, and one right below my collar bone.
I hope everyone is having a good day. I went to the lake yesteday with my brother,SIL, and my mom. We rode the jet ski, and went out on a boat. Today we are having Eric's birthday party. Gotta go to walmart and get some stuff.

09-06-2004, 11:47 AM
I have 4 tattoos and 4 piercings 2 oriental style butterflies and 2 japanese charachters one butterfly is on the base of my neck, the other is on the center of my lower back with the japanese characters on either side. The symbols stand for truth and honor, my tats are all black with no color in them.

Ricci have fun at the party.

Mel I Hope bugga is okay. Keep us updated :)

09-06-2004, 12:00 PM
Good morning ladies. Boy, we slept in very late here LOL. It's nice, but now I think we'll be on this late-night schedule. Still have my list of chores for today, which I always wait to tackle during Liam's naps.

Spryng- glad the kids did well in Church. Do you think you'll take them more regularly? I've been feeling like I'm lacking spiritual fulfillment and would like to try out various churches or something, but also worry about really being able to concentrate if I also have to watch Liam. I think the appointment will go well - I'll be thinking of you :) I can't wait to see your new pic!

Cindi- :cheer: on the 2 mile walk! I have no advice about keeping kids out of bed LOL. We're co-sleepers.

Penny- I love the idea of a treat every night they sleep in their own bed. That's a great idea!!! You're brilliant LOL. I truly have to now share this with some of my friends . . . Oh, I am positive you'll get those clothes out of layaway. Melissa won't let you do it any other way :lol:

Melissa- Wow- I bet you're right about the acid reflux. Keep us posted on what the doc says.

Michelle- Happy almost-anniversary! I bet you'll have fun on your date with DH :D

Ricci- sounds like you had lots of fun!

Is Crystal out of town?

QOTD 1: I think I am a very perceptive person. I read people fairly well and do a pretty good job taking other people's feelings into account.

fun QOTD: Hmm - can this be a group? I love King of the Hill, but can't single out one character in particular.

QOTD 3 : No tatoos :)

Okay, gotta really get the day going LOL TTYL.

09-06-2004, 12:44 PM

Hope you get your list of chores done. I am gonna go check out your list :)

Let us know about the dr. I sure hope everything is ok! :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIC! :balloons: I love the jet ski :) They are so fun! Hope you had a great time!

I know I need to get my butt to exercising! Hope you have a good day! Dh will be in in 4 days! YAH! Are you going up Thursday to see him?

Ok I gotta finish cleaning this nasty house! YUCK!

09-06-2004, 12:49 PM
Oh Shut! I forgot the qotd'

#1 ... I am usually an upbeat entergic person :) Most of the

#2 ... Ok this is a hard one! I think I like Winnie the Pooh and Cartman :) BTW, My hubby's favorite is Snoopy :) He is tattooed on his arm :)

#3... No tattoos... I always said I would wait until I was skinny... well, I am still The only piercings I have is one at the top of my ear and just two at the bottom. Again, I was waiting for the belly when I was skinny but I will never get my belly to look good enough for

09-06-2004, 01:39 PM
Hello again!

Boy I've been burning cd's like crazy this morning. but now I'll have some new music to listen to in the van.

OK, QOTD"S!! So glad there are so many!! :)

Ok, QOTD 1- I like that I am serious yet silly. I can be very responsible and clear headed but at the same time I love to act dumb and say off the wall things. (guess that could be a fault too, lol)
fun QOTD- hmmm... don't really know. I love Patrick on spongebob, no matter what mood I am in, if he's on tv he cracks me up. He's the animated version of Phoebe from friends! LOL
QOTD 2-- no, no tattoos... YET! I do plan on getting one eventually. My dh doesn't have any either, but my parents both have them. My mom has a black rose on her breast (I don't encourage big breasted women to do this! LOL.. now it is a very LOOOOONNNNGGG stem black rose, LOL!) and my dad has a peace sign with a marijuana plant growing out of it on his bicep. I always loved it, it's very colorful. What can I say.. he enjoyed the 70's! LOL!

Penny, I hope I can go up thursday to see him, but I don't know yet. Right now he is in Denver and will be there until tomorrow night, but he has family there and they are having a blast!

leigh, I probably will take the kids to church more often. It made me feel really good. I felt the same way you do, that something was lacking so I decided to just go! LOL...

Ricci, can I come too!! You sound like you've been having lots of fun! I want to have some too! :)

Michelle, happy anniversary!!!!!!! That's so nice! I hope you guys have a great day together!

Ok, I need to make me some lunch and then my soaps will be starting soon. TTYL!

09-06-2004, 02:30 PM
Hey everyone! Just woke up! LOL Dh and I slept as long as we could before Bayley couldn't take anymore so we are up now. Had a good time visiting with his parents yesterday up at their campsite so that was fun. We were going to have our friends over today for a BBQ but they are fairly new friends and we can't find their phone number! We looked in the phone book and everywhere else we could think of and still can't find it, oh well I guess we will just hang out here and do our own thing.

So I was at Toy's R Us the other day and guess what they are selling again...................Garbage Pail Kids trading cards!!! Does anyone remember those? I freaked out and bought a pack cause I just couldn't believe they were out again! For those of you that don't know what they are it's baseball card sized pictures of Cabbage Patch Kids that are really disgusting! They crack me up, I might take a digital pic of one later and show you all. Sorry I am so excited about these but this was straight out of my childhood and I couldn't resist.

Thanks for all the advice about weaning guys! For the past few months I have been exclusively pumping and just nursing Bayley once a night or early morning. She took to a bottle right away after she was born so I have been able to pump and give her a bottle for a long time. I have been mixing whole milk and breastmilk for the past few weeks and she is totally on whole milk now so we're done. I did pump a little yesterday morning and it seemed to help, I'm not sore today at all. Kind of going to miss these two though :) I know I will go back to what I was before I got preg. or smaller and I am not looking forward to that, I told dh to wave bye bye last night, he was sad LOL
Ok enought of that.........................................

Spryng I'm so excited your dh is coming home this weekend. Good luck on getting him a local job, I hope he can get one! I can't wait for an updated photo I'm sure you look so good! I know people have been noticing a diff. in me lately since I have almost lost 10 pounds!! I was wearing clothes from before I was preg. all weekend so that has made me feel soooooooooo good. I'm going to go shopping for school (for me) after Bayley's birthday so I hope to be even smaller by then! You are doing so good on your weight loss, I'm sure you will be nice and toned by next summer!

Mel I have heard a lot about acid reflux in children, I know they were starting to link it to colicky babies and I thought that was really interesting. The more I think about it the more I think you may be right about Bugga. I actually hope that's what it is because I think it is easily treatable and you will be able to get sleep again!! I know how miserable it is to have acid reflux cause I had it when I was preg. Well it was probably just severe heartburn but it made me throw up a couple times and I didn't get much sleep at all! Let us know how it all turns out.

Michelle congrats on the anniversary!! Ours is on Wednesday! It will be 4 years! I hope you guys have a blast, I think we are going to dinner too and then will go shopping for Bayleys birthday. We went to the movies last week and there really isn't anything else we want to see so we'll call it good. I hope you are having a good day!

Hey Ricci! I am jelous about the jet skis! We were watching people on them at the lake yesterday and were wanting to ride some so bad! I hope you are still enjoying school!

Hey Leigh we are on a late schedule this weekend too! I hope I can get it back to normal though cause this wont cut it when I go back to school! Hope you are having a good weekend. Good job on your organizational stuff! It's sounds like it is working good for you.

Penny I am sure you will be in the 150's by the time you get those clothes off layaway, just keep at it and get in that exercise!

QOTD: I like that I can diffuse tense situations and I can make people laugh (usually)

QOTD#2: I don't think I have a favorite cartoon character, maybe Kim Possible?

QOTD#3: I don't have any tattoos and probably won't get any but I do have my bb pierced, not so pretty these days! LOL

Ok I am finally going to post this and I hope someone didn't sneak in on me! I was trying to help dh cook breakfast and burnt the bacon while I was supposed to be typing this so we will see! TTYL

09-06-2004, 02:39 PM
P.S. Spryng I am on Chapter 3 of the game!! My son is now like 8 or 9! Ya I've been playing it a lot but I only have till Wed. so I have to get it in!

09-06-2004, 05:32 PM
Hello Everyone! I'm still alive!! I did actually lose 2 lbs... even though I messed up big time! :lol: I went out of town this weekend on the spur of the moment... and now I'm pretty sick.. I think I'm coming down with a cold... my head hurts to even think.. so I'm going to try to log on tomorrow or later today and update everyone! I hope everyone is having a blessed day!

09-06-2004, 05:51 PM
I went for another walk, I think the track I am using is more than a mile and I went two laps. My pedometer said 2.5 miles but I don't know if I completely trust that. I am sore today though. There are a couple of good hills on it, so I think it's a good one to walk. I can't tell you how much better I feel after I do that...I guess it's like that "runner's high" I have heard about.

Gotta take back sooon

09-06-2004, 06:00 PM
HI there ladies! So glad that you all seemed to have fairly good weekends ! ;) Mine was good...but to me its not over, dh is finishing the fence now, and dd is napping, I am getting the desk cleaned off, then when dd wakes up we are all going to be outside..we are going to clean the garage, and get the yard work done this afternoon/evening, and then tonight we have to do the bills and pack for dh to leave tomorrow morning :( He gets to come home each weekend, but I am not going to be used to this, so we'll have to see how it all pans out. SO this week he will only be gone 3 nights. SO....BUSY REST OF THE DAY FOR ME !!! :) I wish I could nap today, but I have to get this desk cleaned up so I can move my mouse farther than the middle of the pad! :lol: its getting really bad !!!

QOTD#1 : I think that my ability to read people is really good, and I think that I am always "real"...I don't try to be something I'm not. I don't pretend to be rich or extremely happy all the time like alot of people I know. I just live MY life for me and the ones I love, and that is all I will need in the end !!! :)

QOTD#2: We are loving, loving DOra around here, and Spongebob, rugrats and fairly oddparents. Those are the only shows that sydney really watches, and she gets to pick 2-3 1/2 programs a day! I like Jimmy Neutron too ! :)

QOTD#3: NO tattoos....yet...dh has a bulldog face with a backwards cap on his arm and I have been to " Grinn and Barrett" (local tattoo place) twice to find something I like, I think if I do get one, it will be on my hip or lower back...not noticable all the time !! my ears are double peirced and I had my belly button and tongue peirced but took both of those out when I got pregnant (i went through this whole, act like a woman not a teenager thing, when I was prego, LOL !!! my favorite thing to tell dh was "grow up" when he would do somehting imature! :lol:)

okawy getting a little personal now (from what I can remember!!! :) :)

Mel - GO with your mommy mind! That is what my mom always sounds like you are right on with the acid reflux thing. Make sure that you get all the testing, etc, done that you want done! I will keep you and patrick in my prayers! :)

Leigh - glad that your organizing is motiviating you so much, I am rally getting into that too lately !! :) I know how you feel about getting some sprirtual nurishment! :) We felt that way too about 2 years ago and started going to churches until we found one we really LOVE!! SOme of yo were saying that you dont' want to fight your children at church, and/or don't feel like you will get anything out of it if they go...we felt the same way too! The church that we found has a "worship service" for kids!!!!
From birth to 2 years old, they go to the nursery, they just color and sing songs, and play, then they become a "spark" which is 2 and 3 year olds and they have their own little worship service, and then once htey turn 4 they go to "livewire" which they go to until 6th grade...after that they sit with their parents! WE lov eit, because it is really safe for them, you have to have a key card to drop off and pick up downstairs, and then you just go get them when all is said and done..they get alot more out of it, and it enables me to actually pay attention! :) sometimes they come and sing upstairs for us and stuff, its pretty cool !!! :) Okay - the book has been written, just thought that I would share with you all! :) sorry if I was long winded !!! haha!

SPryng - glad that you had a nice surprise visit from dh!! You are so skinny girl, a size 8 is a dream for me! :) I need to get my butt in gear and STAY on track! I keep doing whats "easy" though. gggrrrrr......

Jill - Sounds like you got lots of good advise about weaning.....what mel did is pretty much exactly what I did too. It worked well thank god! Sounds like its a good thing you only have that game until wednesday! haha! :lol:

Ricci - Happy Birthday to Eric!!! Sounds like you had so much fun! bil has a jet ski and we love it! :) our boat is where I would live if I could, during the summer ! :)

Michelle - Happy Anniversary :love: - I hear ya about leaving the munchkins! You know what is weird, is our 2 year anniv, is nEXT tuesday, the 14th!! We got married a week apart !!! :)

Penny - your menu sounds good, how is teaching going? Thats nice that dh is home today to do the yard work! :)

well I better get going on this desk! :yikes: so I will see you guys either later tonight or in the mornign after I take the princess to pre-school !!! ;)

TTYL !!! Hi to anyone I missed! :)

09-06-2004, 06:03 PM
WOW !!! Cindi - congrats on ANOTHER walk !!! I need to get motiviated again, you make me want to! :)

Jaymi - Hello! sorry to hear you aren't feeling well :( Where did you go this weekend? did you have a nice time?

okay - now I think I am officially caught up! :) :)

09-06-2004, 09:46 PM
Hi gals! Sorry I've been MIA most of today. I'm feeling a little under the weather, but am hoping it's a weird reaction to the storm coming in LOL. DH comes home tomorrow afternoon!!! I can't wait.

I have still gotten almost everything on today's list done.

Penny- can I come by for BBQ??? I love BBQ! And those roast beef poboys sound delicious!

Jill- I remember Cabbage Patch Kids more than garbage pail kids cards. They sound funny though. I love your new avatar pic! Two cute gals :D

Jaymi- hope you feel better soon.

Cindi- you're doing so well! I'm proud of you.

Kristin- Hi! I've missed you - but sounds like you've had a productive weekend, so I guess that's good LOL. I keep slipping and doing what's easy too. I really need some sort of reality check. I thinkpart of it is that I'm almost the weight I was when I got pregnant, and I like the way I look in clothes and stuff so there isn't a huge motivation for me to keep going. But I would like to be in the 140s . . .

Okay, gals. I'm tired, so I'm logging off for now, but most likely will post again before the night is through.

09-06-2004, 09:56 PM
Hey girls! Hope everyone is having a good day. It's been slow here. Dh and I are just trying to clean the place up after having a weekend of trashing the place! LOL We're getting ready to have some lasagna and salad here in a few minutes but I wanted to write first.

Leigh I just saw the news and it said the storm is coming through Georgia!! OMG are you scared? I can you believe another one is coming?!! I would hate to live in FL right now! Good job getting all your housework done!

Kristin Hi! You guys are doing a lot today!! Geez, come on over and build our fence too will ya! Hope everything is going good and you are getting a lot of time with dh before he leaves.

Ok so I covered over my saved game today and now I have to start all over!! I decided that I would just turn it off for good and take it back early so I could get my life back to normal! LOL I was super pissed that I covered over it though! I think God was trying to tell me something! Like get it together girl! Ok so it's dinner time and I need to go but you girls have a nice night and I will be back later! TTYL

09-06-2004, 09:59 PM
I cried when reading this I'm gonna print it and frame it and put in my girls room
Hope you like it

Paul Harvey Writes:
We tried so hard to make things better for our kids that we made them worse. For my grandchildren, I'd like better.

I'd really like for them to know about hand me down clothes and homemade ice cream and leftover meat loaf sandwiches. I really would.

I hope you learn humility by being humiliated, and that you learn honesty by being cheated.

I hope you learn to make your own bed and mow the lawn and wash the car.

And I really hope nobody gives you a brand new car when you are sixteen.

It will be good if at least one time you can see puppies born and your old dog put to sleep.

I hope you get a black eye fighting for something you believe in.

I hope you have to share a bedroom with your younger brother/sister. And it's all right if you have to draw a line down the middle of the room,but when he wants to crawl under the covers with you because he's scared, I hope you let him.

When you want to see a movie and your little brother/sister wants to tag along, I hope you'll let him/her.

I hope you have to walk uphill to school with your friends and that you live in a town where you can do it safely.

On rainy days when you have to catch a ride, I hope you don't ask your driver to drop you two blocks away so you won't be seen riding with someone as uncool as your Mom.

If you want a slingshot, I hope your Dad teaches you how to make one instead of buying one.

I hope you learn to dig in the dirt and read books.

When you learn to use computers, I hope you also learn to add and subtract in your head.

I hope you get teased by your friends when you have your first crush on a boy\girl, and when you talk back to your mother that you learn what ivory soap tastes like.

May you skin your knee climbing a mountain, burn your hand on a stove and stick your tongue on a frozen flagpole.

I don't care if you try a beer once, but I hope you don't like it. And if a friend offers you dope or a joint, I hope you realize he is not your friend.

I sure hope you make time to sit on a porch with your Grandma/Grandpa and go fishing with your Uncle.

May you feel sorrow at a funeral and joy during the holidays.

I hope your mother punishes you when you throw a baseball through your neighbor's window and that she hugs you and kisses you at Hannukah/Christmas time when you give her a plaster mold of your hand.

These things I wish for you - tough times and disappointment, hard work and happiness. To me, it's the only way to appreciate life.

09-06-2004, 10:47 PM
I'm Baaaaaaaack !!!!!

I did as I promised and read all of today's posts, just not the past 2 days since I was gone.

Hope everyone that is under the weather gets to feeling better really, really soon. Hope all whose dh is leaving town, that he will have a safe trip and come home soon. Hope all whose dh is coming home, that you don't get too wrapped up in him and forget about us ;) Hope all those with ill children, find an answer to their troubles.

QOTD: #1 I feel my best trait is that I don't form opinions of people based on what others tell me. I like to form my own after I have had the chance to meet the person and get a feel of what kind of person they are. I think I make pretty sound judgements.

QOTD: #2 I would have to say that my fave is Tom & Jerry. I have had my kids watch them and even though it is violent, it is completely different than the violence they put in some of them today. My kids love them too, especially dd.

QOTD: #3 I have one tattoo. I have a wolf standing on a rock, baying at the full moon with mountains in the background. It's on my upper left front shoulder. I have had it for 5 years. Dh spent 4 years in the Navy and 8 years in National Guard and never got one. My ears are pierced 3 times each but I haven't worn any earrings since my tubal, over 3 years now.

We went to watch dh at the cowboy shoot all weekend and I got sooooooo sunburned.....I feel and look like a lobster from the neck up. I think I ate bad all weekend, not really sure. I didn't have calorie count on everything I ate so it was hard to keep track. And we were about 7 miles away from a small town, in the middle of nowhere basically. So I didn't have access to much. I did take my own snacks so that helped. WI is tomorrow morning so I'm :crossed:

Would have been here this morning but ended up going to my mom's for a cookout with my brother and his family and mom and her fiance. We had a good time and I still tried to eat right. Not sure that small spoonful of pasta salad was good for me :?: but I ate lots of cantaloupe. All the while my BIG sil was eating angel food cake with peaches and whipped cream and giving me a hard time about not being able to handle it. I told her I was doing just fine with my cantaloupe :D

Well it's almost bedtime here so I better get kids on the ball. Dh is off work til Wednesday night so not sure how much I will be here but I will get here and post my WI tomorrow.

Hope all have a great evening and I will see you all tomorrow.

Okay- a poll for Liam's Birthday gift :D I'm debating between the two stroller blankets pictured below. Not necessairily in those colors (just the pics from the web sites). Which do you prefer? I'd like your opinions/feedback before I give you my opinions LOL.

Jill- yeah- the storm is coming here but it's just a tropical storm so tons of rain and windier than usual. The thing about living in FL or the southeast is you get used to bad thunderstorms and the like, so tropical storms don't seem that different LOL. But Hurricanes can be scary when strong of course. Are you going to rent the game again?

Michelle- I love that essay!

Deana- get some aloe on your poor skin LOL. Ugh. Sunburn is no fun.

Okay, I'm turning in. Or at least turning off . . . the computer, that is :lol:
