Morning gals. ANother quick post from me. I swaer I'll try and catch up later today :) DH is taking Liam and Duncan to the park so I'm going to make the looonnnggg drive to Walmart. There were some things I tried to get at Target, but they didn't have them :( So, I'm going to try Walmart.
Guest room is better, but far from finished . . . seems like it will take forever.
09-19-2004, 12:54 PM
Good morning ladies.
I slept in this morning. Dh got home and crawled in and I didn't even know it. I was up at 6:30 to go potty then went back to bed. I woke up at some point after dh got in and realized Abby had come in too. I finally made it out at 9:40. So getting a late start today. But I didn't get to sleep til 2 after taking dh lunch and then reading for a while.
Trying to kill time til the Chiefs game at noon.
Jill: hope Bayley's party is a great success and the weather cooperates with you. That cake is just too cute.
Penny: Hope you got your lessons ready in time. Have a good day.
Crystal: Glad dh is feeling well enough to take the girls. Have fun grocery shopping.
Spryng: Did you go to see dh this morning? WTG on the mansion. Sounds like you had a fun day yesterday.
Michelle: Aren't you off work today? Dh has to work again tonight so I would like to chat tonight with anyone who can make it.
Anyone for water challenge today? I got down 124 oz yesterday. LMK if you want to.
See ya all after the game.
GO CHIEFS :cheer:
09-19-2004, 12:54 PM
Big day ahead! I was only up till like 12 so that wasn't bad, dh still hasn't cleaned the bathroom! ARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGG I was kind of mad but he knows he has to do it and it better be done before I get back from picking up the cake or else!! LOL Anyway we gave Bayley her presents this morning and she is currently playing with them right now. She has a bunch of toys that make noise now so that is good! NOT Well none of them are too bad so I won't complain too much! Ok well that's it for now, I need to jump in the shower and then get Bayley in the bath so I can trim her bangs a little and get her all ready (except for party clothes cuz she can ruin them in no time!) I'll check back in later. Hope you all are having a good morning so far! TTYL
09-19-2004, 01:12 PM
Jill I hope you have a wonderful time with dear Bailey!! Happy Birthday Bailey!!!!!
Penny have fun at class today! I hope you got your lessons together with no problem!
Well Teagan is walking more and more I'm just tickled pink about it!! Its so darn cute, she gets worn out fast though. I've been practicing walking with her all morning and she just love the attention!
Ok guys I'm gonna get showered and dressed because we are taking the girls out to lunch today.
Oh Deana sure I'll try and make chat also!! I would love tooo!!
09-19-2004, 01:14 PM
Oh yeah I'll be a part of the water challenge today :)Yesterday I got 66 oz. in. My goal is for 100 oz today.
09-19-2004, 01:15 PM
Good morning all...
Jill-have fun with the birthday party. I skipped parties for all my girls this year. Needless to say...I'm on the bad list.
I'd like to try this water challenge. How much do I have to drink? Pretty sure I'll end up in the bathroom alot but I guess that's better than in the kitchen snacking.
Duty calls. My house won't clean itself and my little girl is wanting to watch Jammin' in Jamaiica ( Barbie dvd) again. I'm guessing I'll be watching it like 5-6 times today. Have a great day everyone!
09-19-2004, 01:37 PM
Michelle: Glad Teagan is walking more. I think I remember those days....lol. Hope to see you at chat tonight.
Amy: Water challenge is 100 oz. Gald you want to join us. It sooooo much helps with the loss. And yes your toilet paper consumption does go up, but it's worth it....lol. Good luck. Have a great day.
09-19-2004, 01:44 PM
Good morning all!
Sorry I'm late getting here. I just got home. I had to run to walmart for something I desperately needed (female problems, lol) and our walmart here doesn't open until 10 am so I went to the super center in the next town over... but I went ahead and got groceries too so I'm set for the week. Today I plan on relaxing some, I had a really rough night last night. And cleaning, mostly folding laundry. I hope I get a good chunk of it done. I don't get to see dh today afterall... he just didn't have enough time and I hate to drive 3 hours for only an hour or so of visiting. But I will see him this thursday for sure! That is when his vacation starts.
Chrily, enjoy that barbie dvd, lol... and I hope you get alot done in your house today!
Michelle, that is wonderful to hear about Teagan!! She'll be running circles around you in no time, lol. Enjoy your lunch today! Been playing sims much lately? Have you ever tried buying that generic memory for you computer?? We've bought some online before and it works just like the name brands but for a fraction of the cost. I think I can get a 1 GB for about 150 bucks. I'm going to order some tomorrow so my game will play right, lol.
Jill, hope you and Bayley have a wonderful day!!! She's growing up too fast huh? Enjoy it! :)
Deana, you are a KC chiefs fan?? DH is obsessed with the Broncos... who played the chiefs not long ago. Hope you enjoy the game!
Leigh, enjoy that quiet car ride all by yourself! And I hope you find what you are looking for.
Crystal, how are you feeling today? Have a great day!
Penny, I know we'll see more from you later! Have fun at church!
Well my stomach is calling and it's lunch time! So I'll TTYL!
09-19-2004, 01:49 PM
:bravo: :cb: :cp: :dance:
EMILY! congrats on your WI! Everyone needs to go back to the last thread 'cause they must have missed your post! We always congratulate eachother here and I see they all missed you!!! Congrats again! :D
Happy birthday to Bayley!!
Parties were fun yesterday... going to go for a bikeride with my bf today... need about 100 miles to wear off the past 3 wks eating :o . Probably going to have about a 5 lb gain at WI tomorrow night. YIKES!
Sorry I can't get personal with you all but I was just checking in :D . Hopefully later tonight.
Oh, Ricci....BTW....the Cowboys stink! :lol: Love ya anyway!!
09-19-2004, 01:54 PM
Hi all. Me and Andrew are back from buying groceries, got them all put away and he is napping. Haven't heard from dh and it's sooooooooooooooooooooooooo quiet here. Thought about napping, but sometimes when it's this quiet, I can't. Go figure, I know. I hadn't had lunch so I may do that.
I would love to join one of these water challenges, but you've got to be kidding, there's no way. I have to down 32 oz before sono on Tuesday and be done by 100 and not pee until after the sono at 200, not sure how that's gonna work.
Oh, Andrew is awake, Crying. Gotta go.
09-19-2004, 02:24 PM
Hey Everybody, I got a quick second so I thought I'd stop in to see how everyone is doing. It is so beautiful outside here, thought about taking my son to the park to let him play for a little while. I woke-up this morning and my mom had made pancakes, I ate two of the stack of four or five she made me! I haven't got in a lot of water today but I will definately be up for a water challenge tomorrow. My mother-in-law went to Costco's and bought a mountain of toilet paper for us so I'm good on that. LOL Well, I'm off here for a while, I'll check back in to catch up on everyone this evening.
SAHM to my wonderful 4 year old son Chad Jr., married almost 5 years (Oct. 2) to my best friend. :)
STG: 169 by Sept. 30th.... I hate time limits, but this is one I think I can stick to.
09-19-2004, 03:34 PM
I am in on the water, but I have a late start! I will just drink as much as I can!!
Took Christian back to ER last night for fluids, so I am late getting started! He is much better!
Back later, after I shower!
09-19-2004, 04:50 PM
Hey everyone, I'm ready for the party! So now I have 2.5 hours to sit and wait! Oh well it's better than not being ready and having people start showing up. Anyway Bayley is asleep and I have my sis and bil and mom here already and we are just hanging out. I gave Bayley a bath this morning and cut her hair for the first time and gave her some bangs, she is so cute! She's going to have 2 pony tails in her hair and have little black ribbons in them. I can't wait to show you all. Sorry to keep going on about this but it's a special day for me! So anyway I hope you all are doing good today!
Crystal how nice to have just Andrew and have all the groceries bought and put away. Put your feet up and relax while you can. Glad dh is up and about.
Penny ahhhhhhhh sorry about your lesson! I hope you got it all done. I'm sure you did and I bet all the kids had a blast! Let us know how it went.
Hi Leigh glad you are making progress with the spare room, is Liam sleeping in your room right now? Hope you have a productive day!
Deana glad you got to sleep in, feels so good sometimes huh? Thanks for the wishes of good weather I think it worked cuz this morning it was really cold and raining and I was freaking out but in the last hour it's gotten sunny and warmer! Thanks so much! Good luck on the water, I'm not going there today! Tomorrow for sure though.
Michelle thanks for the HAPPY BIRHTDAY thing, it was so cute! I made Bayley look at it this morning and she liked it! Congrats on Teagan walking, maybe it will rub off on Bayley soon!
Chrily hope you are having a good day, shame on you for not having birthday parties! LOL just kidding, they are pretty stressful!
Spryng sorry you had to run out so early but glad you got what you needed. Bayley is growing so fast! I can't believe it's already been a year. All day I have been going through my head what I was doing at this time last year! I think around this time I was sleeping after my epidural and feeling fine! Glad you got some cleaning done yesterday. Not sure if I buy it though, I still think you were playing SIMS, I saw it at Costco today and had to laugh!
Geri I bet you could get in a hundred miles of biking easy! LOL Hope you have a great bike ride, thanks for the birthday wishes!
Amy good job only eating 2 of the 4 or 5 thats an accomplishment in itself! Hope you are having a great day!
Ok I've been on this thing for awhile and am getting made fun of by my family so I guess I better go. Hope you all have a great day! TTYL
09-19-2004, 04:52 PM
cindy didn't mean to forget about you but your post was at the bottom and I guess I didn't see it. Scary about Christian, is he doing better now? I hope so, get that water in!!
09-19-2004, 05:36 PM
Well, game time is over! Go CAROLINA!!!!! LOL Hubby sent me out to get supper earlier, he wanted McDonalds.. ugh, I wanted Burger King so I could get me one of those grilled chicken salads! I won!! He He. Hey Jill, hope the party goes great.. I know it will! I know I haven't been posting on here long, so I don't really know yet how to go about all the personal stuff, but I want to thank everyone for their support. You have all been great in helping me to keep my goal in sight and to understand when I have a bad day(s). So far so good, I threw away a kit kat that my little boy gave me.. I didnt' let him see me do it though. He's finally getting back to his normal sweet self after four days of not feeling good. Cindy, I know how scary it can be when one of your children gets sick, I truly hope Christian gets to feeling better. My son had to be hospitalized twice in two years for what doctor's simply called a virus. It tore me up so bad seeing him in there, but our prayers were answered an nothing serious ever came out of it. You all will be in my prayers!

I'm back again. I mopped, I swept, I conquered...not much! I got some stuff done then went to wal-mart for my medications. I'm glad to be inside though. The wind is blowing and its getting kind of cold outside. And yes...I am on my 3rd time watching the Barbie dvd. Humm, guess that's why I'm on the computer.
To all of you who are sick of calling me Chrily...my name is Christina. Most everyone just calls me Chris. TTFN. Gotta go procrastinate some more. I bought some paint and a roller to paint the living room with. I want color so I'm finally ditching the white.
09-19-2004, 10:10 PM
Good evening everyone.
Jill: How did the party go? Didn't know for sure what time you were having it. Hope Bayley had fun and got ladybug cake all over her...... :hb: . It happens to all of us. Did my weather wish work?
Chris: What color will the living room be when you get done? How was Barbie today? LOL
Amy: Ok, the CHIEFS stunk big time today. Panthers rule this time :foot: . This has to be the best spot for support there is. I was new just a month ago or so and have felt like all these great ladies are family. We will support you, push you, scold you......whatever you want to get you where you want to be. Skinny. :bravo: on the pancakes and the kit kat. Great job resisting temptation.
Cindi: Hope Christian is doing much better today. I know it can be tough. How are you feeling? Did the discomfort from your procedure go away? Sure hope so. How's the water going? I have 70 ounces down, working on the rest. I will get there.
Penny: Did you not get your lesson ready and they tied you up and kept you there? LOL Hope you're having a good day.
Emily: :cheer: on the WI. Sorry I missed it on the other thread.
Spryng: Glad you got your shopping done. How long is dh going to be on vacation? We know we won't see much of you while he's home, but watch the eating or I will drive there and get you......LOL. Yes I am a Chiefs fan. Can't you tell?
Geri: How was your bike ride? Dh's cousin had left a mountain bike here a year ago and dh got it out the other day and asked my oldest if he wanted it, he said no. So I'm thinking about taking it up, but I haven't put myself on a bike in sooooo long I'm not sure how my body would take it. And I would have to find the right time to go ride so the kids wouldn't want to go with me. We live in the country and there is a hill both ways on our road that I'm not sure the kids would handle very well so I need to go without them. Still mulling it over.
Hi to anyone I missed, sorry. I will be in chat tonight. Hope some of you can join me. I really hate to talk to myself so much.....but like I tell my kids, I'm the only one around here who will listen.
09-19-2004, 10:26 PM
BTW: I posted a pic on the website of Abby's artwork from preschool Friday. It is so good. This is a class of 4 and some 5 year olds and from what I saw, most of them just did swirls or lines. My baby painted a picture of herself. I'm soooo proud of her. And today we were working on letters and she wrote everyone's name in our house, with help.
09-20-2004, 12:37 AM
I think I need to scratch the heck out of the Barbie dvd. I've got the words memorized now. I'm going to paint the living room a beige color...it kind of looks like coffee with cream would look. I know, not much of a change from white. But after we painted one daughter's room pink and the other one's room purple...beige is good. The only room I'm doing white walls with is my 2 yr old daughters. I got a lady bug theme going in hers. It should be cute when I'm done. I plan on using that chalkboard paint somewhere in her room so she can doodle with the chalk.
I am paying today. I skipped breakfast and have been snacking and bingeing all day. I'm going to start fresh tomorrow. And I'm going to drink water until I explode. TTFN and see you tomorrow. :wave:
