Good Monday Morning Ladies. Hope you all had a great night. Mine was okay again, I think Andrew woke up like twice. And in between I slept so hard. Woke up with a pounding headache though.

Kristin, Happy Birthday Sydney.

Jill, glad you got some clothes. There are not alot of places to go for maternity here. I can drive to Mesquite, about 35 to 40 minutes from my house and have more places to go, but expensive. I do like to go to Sears, they have great sales. Good luck in school.

Penny, after a busy Saturday, hope your Sunday was more relaxing.

Geri, I'm with you I HATE TO IRON. I wait until I have this HUGE pile of clothes to iron at once, which really makes it worse, but I'm a procrastinator anyways.

Hello to Deana, Amy, Chris, Spryng, Ricci, Michelle, Mel and everyone else out there in SAHM world.

Today we are calling the bank to tell them we've got the closing $ so proceed. I don't care if it's a yes or no, I'm just tired of not knowing anything. If it's a no, then we can move forward with another plan. I need to go to town and run a few errands, but we'll see. We didn't get our reading done in school on Friday, and I like to stay on the same lesson plans for math and reading so today we'll just do reading so tomorrow we'll be back on track. Friday will be our last day and we'll have like a two or three week Fall break. Haven't decided yet. Probably just 2 weeks so we don't get too comfortable. I won Andrew a 12 pc. winter lot of clothes on ebay. Like 4 outfits with pants and tops, a jean jacket, a winter coat and two more items that all look really nice for shipping and everything of $25.00, I thought that was good, I probably won't have to buy him anymore after that.
Okay, gotta wake up dh and get him out the door. TTYL

Just a quick note. On my way out the door to get shower parts and such.

Crytal: Glad you had a good night. WTG on the ebaying.

I'll be back later.

Have a great day everyone.

All right, my morning isn't starting great. I had to do the bank statements today and pay some bills and we are getting our first effects of dh not having a job. And actually he did get paid for last week, but he's not this week and he's not looking for a job. I don't have enough to buy groceries, which I don't need to terribly bad today, I can wait a few days. I don't know if he'll get his first unemployment check this week or not, but it's not enough to cover bills, which this next week is a HUGE week of bills and I will need groceries. I haven't found my local wic office yet, still looking.
I have to run to town to make a deposit and get some milk. Not that any of y'all wanted to hear all that bad news, but it's hitting and I'm trying to stay calm and under control. Okay, out the door, talk to ya later.

mompen
09-27-2004, 10:24 AM
Crystal,
I know things will work out for you!

Have you contacted the Medicaid office for the children yet? What about the food pantry?

When dh quit his job to open his own business, we applied for Blue Cross (the same co. we had with dh's old job) they rejected us b/c of Andrew's kidney disorder.
Our children are now on Medicaid so I know what it feels like to need help.

Hang in there! I know it will all work out for you!

Hey girlies. It's my big day at school today!! I'm up early and it's not too bad so far LOL I need to get dressed and get some things done before I go and get the baby up but wanted to check in first and say hi. I have to go in early today so I can get books and stuff before class starts. I should only be gone till about 2:30 Central time and I only have one class today and then tomorrow I have a day off! Shouldn't be too bad right? Ok just a quickie from me. Need to go get some breakfast and get dressed so I can be ready to go soon. Have a great day and I'll talk to you in a few hours!!

Hope you have a great day at school!

What classes are you in?

Morning!!!!!
Just a short hello.....
The ONLY way I can iron is to rent a movie that I know Dh will not want to see, or a TV show (favorite sewing or craft show) that he won't watch. At least I get some "me time" while performing the miserable job. Now if I can just find some way to iron while walking I would really be smiling.
Have a great day ladies.

Hi all.
Jill, have fun at school. Hope all goes well.
Penny, I know that doing this assistance stuff is hard, now. I called and got a wic appt. but now I need the kids shot records and in order to get those I have to go sign a release at the doctors office. That office is 20 minutes away and the wic appt. is wednesday. So I have to go to the doc tomorrow to turn around and go to the wic appt wednesday. so long slow days at home, huh? I've got to call medicaid next, but I have to find out if my doctor accepts it. I know my pediatrician does but not sure about my obgyn.
Anyways, we're having some lunch. TTYL

Good Afternoon all! I am having an awesome day. I burned 520 calories today, I was on a roll! Treadmill fat burning program for 45min and the bike for 20! I did a total of 5 miles between the two. I feel so good. Now I am eating my salad with chicken in it for lunch. So far I'm in the negative for cal's today. YES!!

Patricks birthday is today and He is 2 already! Thank you all for the birthday wishes for him! HIs party went well and he loved the thomas themed cake. We now have a ton of thomas stuff around. He's enjoying it all quiet a bit!!

Jill, Good luck at school today, Let us know how it goes.

Crystal, I hope dh gets a job soon. Do you need coupons for anything?? I have a ton of things I could send you. I know being short on cash is real hard. Good luck with medicaid and wic.

Deana, I hope you get everything done you need to today. Are you drinking your water today???

Leigh, I tried to view your pics, but wasn't able to for some reason. I wanted to see your renovation/decorating.

Geri, Happy Birthday!!!! Sorry it's belated, I was crazy here with bugga's birthday prep, didn't mean to pass you up.

Kristin, How r u? Maybe I'll catch you online later. How was watching your uncles children? I hope all went well.

Cindi, I hope christian is feeling better. Let us know. HOw r u doing with the water intake? Oh yes, I think I remember reading you lost 2 lbs. YIPPIE. CONGRATS!!!

Anyway, Since I did all this exercise, I MUST SHOWER or you will all smell me across the country. LOL. I'll check in later girls!

I'm back for a few. Had to take dd to school then go and buy a shower curtain liner and rings so dh can get a shower before work tonight. He has the sheetrock up and now we have to tape and mud, let it dry for atleast 24 hours then we can put up the shower board. He needs to be getting to bed though so I doubt we will get much more done today. Atleast we have the water back on now.

Crystal: Good luck with Medicaid and WIC. I had mine on WIC too until dh starting a better job. Luckily our appts. were right here in town. I know everything will work out, just take it day to day.

Mel: Is that what I smelled? LOL....just kidding....it was the cows across the road. WTG on the workout and YES I am drinking my water today. Have been doing really well on that. 100 oz every day for over a week now. I peeked at the scales yesterday and was down 3 from Tues. I peeked again this morning because of the way I ate yesterday at the family reunion, but I drank all my water....and I was down another .5......Tomorrow is WI and measurement day so I'm hoping to see a 4 pound loss this week.

Jill: Hope your first day of school is great. Don't forget about us......

Ginny: What a great con....a tv in the laundry room or kitchen. I may have to ask for one for mine now.....LOL.

Penny: Hope you have a great laid back day.

Spryng: Tell dh you need to come back now and then....he can't have you all to himself ;) . We miss you too.

Hi to everyone else. Better go see what dh is going to try to get done today.

Hey ladies! How is everyone? I didn't think I'd ever get back on this computer. I've had such a busy and hectic weekend and my computer has been acting buggy for some reason. I sign on and then after a couple minutes it shuts down! I hope I don't have a virus in it... :( I went to my cousin's wedding Saturday and had a blast! It was like a high school reunion for me b/c I forgot my cousin is good friends with alot of people I went to school with. It was nice catching up with them. It was so funny b/c there was this guy there who I use to have the biggest crush on in high school. We talked for a while in school but never dated. He was at the wedding and boy has he changed!!!!!! Let's just say he isn't that fit little baseball player he was in school! Not that I can talk, I'm atleast 40 pounds heavier than I was in school! There was so much food at the reception, and yes, I ate alot!! But that meal was my breakfast, lunch and dinner so hopefully it didn't hurt me. I stayed over at my mom's saturday and we watched "A Beautiful Mind". I had never seen it but I really enjoyed it. I like those kind of movies, and I loveeeeeeeee Russel Crowe!! Well, I'll get off here now, I'll try to get on in a little while when my ds isn't in such a foul mood! Talk to you later! :)

Good afternoon.
I just got up from a so so nap. Sort of just dozed and such. Woke up with a terrible headache. Anyways, thanks for your concerns. I'll keep you all up to date.

Mel, Happy Birthday to Patrick. I forgot he and Andrew were so close in age, my Andrew will be 2, Dec. 1st. I'm not sure about the coupons. I've been clipping grocery coupons each week and looking around the net. Plus I'll get on wic and such. It may take me a week or so to see how things are going and be on such a tight budget to realize what I need, but I'll keep you're offer in mind. Thanks.

Andrew's nose is running today, he's not really cranky because of it, I just hate when it happens. I don't know what I'm cooking for dinner yet, I'll let you know. TTYL

Hello all!!

DH is out job hunting so I'm able to get on the computer without him thinking I'm abandoning him, lol. Men.. sheesh.
I haven't been able to catch up with the post from the weekend yet. I hope everyone had a good weekend. We did. Yesterday after church we went to MIL and played Cranium, it was lots of fun and laughing. Today we have some friends coming over to visit tonight so I've been trying to get this house back in order. So far I've completed my living room and that is it. I still need to clean the kitchen including moping it and the bathroom and the kids rooms. But dh will be home in a little bit to help out so it won't take too long. Dinner tonight is One dish rosemary chicken with white beans, not sure about sides yet.
I got sick on friday night and threw up not long after taking my BC pill that night. So it came back up I suppose and then saturday I started bleeding again. I guess it's TOM even though he shouldn't have been here for another week. Is that normal when you miss a pill?? I wasn't going to sift through my vomit (sorry so graphic, lol) to find it so how do you make up a pill you miss like that? But anyway, because TOM is here I'm really tired today so I'm going to take a nap soon.
Well, phone is ringing... shoot! TTYL!

Just wanted you all to know that dh called and said he will still get a paycheck over the next two weeks or so, most likely. The contractor we were working for, called and wants us to finish the job no matter what it takes. So that is GREAT. Plus, the man at the bank called and said that nothing else should stand in our way. The paperwork is in underwriting and all they do is make sure all the documents are there. More than likely we will close early next week. So all this good news and I do understand none of it's in writing yet, but it all looks good. I really didn't know what we were gonna do for the next couple of weeks but God was listening and he said here I am. So anyways. We've got to finish school.

Spryng, glad to see you. I wish dh luck with his job.

Hey Ladies back from school and baby is napping so I have a few minutes before I start some housework. School was good! They had some kind of welcome back party going on in the courtyard but I didn't snoop too much cuz I had things to do. I actually felt good being there which I really have never felt before. The university is 45 minutes from my house and let's just say the community there is opposite from the one I live in. I live in a rural, conservative, farm community and Ashland (where the school is) is very a very liberal, enviromentalist type of community so it's quite a culture shock evrery time I'm there. Last year I truly hated going there because I didn't feel like there was anyone there I could relate with. Not that I think there is a right and wrong way to live your life but I have chosen how I want to live and when there seems to be no one around that believes the same as you it's hard to find happiness. Anyway to wrap up this rant LOL I decided this year I was going to try and make more of an effort to have a positive attitude and focus on what I DO like about the school and see if it helps me out any. So far I've had a positve vibe from it so I hope it continues. It will also help that I only have to be at the Ashland Campus 2 days a week, the rest will be in Medford where it's just night class and I don't have to be in the actual town. So in a nutshell I had a good day! LOL

The rest of today I'm going to clean, pay bills and watch Hunter for a couple hours. Dinner is a WW noodle, chicken, broccolli cheeset thing, sounded good so I hope it is!!

Oh ya and the weather here is totally great. We're going to have 80 and sunny the rest of the week and I am sitting here with my window open and it's just beautiful outside!!! Maybe that's why I feel so good!! LOL Oh and I DONT iron!! My best friend is a spray bottle of water and the dryer. If that doesn't solve it I don't wear it. I would say that I have probably ironed less that 30 times in my life and I don't plan on making it much more that that. Well maybe when I'm a teacher LOL

Thanks for missing me Penny!! I am taking Research Strategies which is a class that you pretty much just learn the best way to write a 15-20 page paper in!! YUCK!! I have persuasion and Media across cultures. I think they are all pretty straight forward classes. So far I have only had research strategies so I will tell you if the other ones are ok after I've had them! LOL Glad you are having a kick back day, you deserve it after all that craziness this weekend, always glad to be a slave driver!! Which weeble wobbles did you get! I love those things! I even cut out the characters bios on the back and kept them so I would know what their names are! I am a freak, right?!!

Ginny hope you got your ironing done!!

Crystal sounds like everything is working out for you! That's great! I'm excited for you to build!

Mel you are so awesome!! Good for you for burning all those calories!! Mom and I are going to walk tonight since we didnt go to the gym this morning. We will go tomorrow and will start going on Monday and Wednesdays as soon as I get my schedule down. This waking up earlier thing is not cool so far! Glad Patricks party went well. Did he get any weeble wobbles! LOL Sorry I had to throw that in!

Deana I know I have said this before but you are doing so good!! You inspire me to do better! I've been doing good anyway but I know I can always do better and you help me drink my water every day! As soon as I read your post I go looking for my water, so thanks for reminding me!! Glad your shower is almost done. Want to come do mine? We have a leak and I think it is why our bill was sooooooooooooooooo high! I hope it's less this month.

Amy cool about the wedding. I love social gatherings with people you haven't seen in a while! It's almost immpossible to resist those foods at the wedding too so just start fresh today!

Spryng we miss you!! Tell your dh to go back to work! Just kidding, but he does need to let you get on here a little more often we need you too!! I hope he can find a job while he is home. Sorry about the bc pills, it does usally make you spot a little when you miss a pill but it should go away once you resume again. I would think just missing one pill wouldn't make you start early unless you stopped taking them. Hope you are feeling better and I hope they stop making you sick soon!

Well it's almost 2 and I haven't eaten anything for lunch yet so I need to get going. IM me if you want to scrub your tub with me! I gotta do that big time, it's yucky! Oh ya PS did anyone watch WIFE SWAP last night? I thought it looked dumb but there were very few choices last night so we watched it and it was interesting. Any thoughts on the show? I'll tell you mine later! LOL have a great day girls!!

Hello Ladies! I am back for the week! LOL! dh is gone again until Friday, and Sydney is taking a birthday nap! :) We have already had so much fun today...Adam stayed home this morning so he could celelbrate her birthday with her on the day and we played "I Spy" to help her find her presents that I had hid in 5 different spots in the house, it was so cute her trying to figure out where they were all hidding and I got the whole thing on film! :) Then we went to IHOP and she got to get the funny face pancake and then the waiters and waitresses came out clapping and singing (mind you this is 8:30 this morning :lol: LOL) and gave her an ice cream sundae! So we left and daddy left to go back to KC...then we played outside and went to lunch with MIL. It has been so nice today! Her party on Sunday will be Dora the Explorer themed! :) Well, for some reason sydney is getting up...ugh...so I am going to go see whats up! :) TTYL! I'll be back tonight!

09-27-2004, 05:25 PM
Hi everyone.
Jill, so glad you had a good day. It's got to be nice getting out for yourself and for education purposes. Should make yourself feel really good. Does your mom keep Bayley while you school?
Kristin, so glad that Sydney is having a good birthday. I like that idea of i spy to find presents. That's a neat tradition that she will always remember and even pass on to her kids.
I decided to make skillet chicken for dinner, dh eats it in tortillas like tacos but it's chicken fajita meat with hot sauce, black beans and corn simmered in the skillet. I like it as is, it's always good. And there's usually enough leftovers for the next day, yeah.
I decided not to go to the doc to get their records until early, early on Wednesday, so tomorrow I should be home all day and I will get caught up on laundry and some big cleaning including my desk organization that I've put off.
Leigh, where are you?
Okay, I'll be back later. Btw, Alisa's birthday is in a couple of weeks but my sister is due two days after her birthday which is also my sister's birthday, but I haven't decided what we're gonna do for her birthday especially since my sister might be in labor. I'm waiting until the week of and I'll just call the invitations. Don't know what I can afford either.
Anyways, I'll talk later.

Grrrr!!!! I can't believe this. I wrote this huge long post and lost it! I'm about to cry with my computer frustrations. Anyway, I have brief use of DH's computer right now, so I will attempt to address each of you.

Crystal- :grouphug: on the money issue. I knew something would come through for you. And congrats on the ebay win- I find some great deals on things for Liam there.

Jill- I'm really glad you're enjoying school so far. I hope you continue to do so :)

Deana- so I take it you are doing some remodeling?

Penny- I miss you too! I've been having support group withdrawal! I miss you and think of you gals every day. How odd about the two girls you know!

Spryng- sorry you got sick :( I'm not sure about the pill thing. Good luck to DH on his job hunt.

Hi, Ginny!

Mel- wow! :bravo: on all the calorie burning. Hmm- not sure about the photos unless photobucket was temporarily down. Happy Birthday to Patrick!!

Amy- glad you had such a great time at the wedding.

Kristin- Happy Birthday to Sydney :)

Hi Chris!

Okay, I'm posting this before it's lost again LOL. The inlaws were here this weekend and boy did they help a lot. We got so much stuff done with the condo- it looks so much better. ALso, we threw out tons of stuff, which also helps. TTY when I can :)

Hi to all.

Well I got the joints taped and mudded and dh said it looked really good when he got up for work. It was too funny though...he usually goes straight to the bedroom to get dressed for work, but today he came all the way into the kitchen to tell me that the new showerhead sucks......guess we'll be putting the old one back on. Atleast it has massage and is a water saver head. Tomorrow afternoon will be putting up the shower board and then I have to find trim to match for the top and a piece for the corner. We're bringing it around the corner out to the closet door. I can't wait. It's going to look so much different in there.

Amy: Glad to hear you had such a good time at the wedding. Don't worry about the eating bad, just start again and stick with us girl.

Spryng: Hope dh has a good stroke of luck finding a local job so he can be home every night. Wish I could help on the bc pill issue but it's been sooooo long since I took them I don't remember. Have fun with your friends tonight.

Crystal: Woohoo on the good news. Hope it continues.

Jill: Sounds like you had a good day at school. Glad you still get time to go to the gym and that you have mom to go with you. Keep drinking that water!!! If I can get to Oregon, sure I'll come do your bathroom. We have only spent $100 on the whole thing, yet it's not done yet. I want to put the shower board all the way around then paint, eventually. So probably around $175 by the time I get done with it. We got up to 81 today so I'm with you on the nice weather. I'm happy that I can help to inspire you to keep working at losing and drinking your water. I told my mom tonight on the phone that I am soooooo proud of me because before I joined this wonderful group of ladies, I had NO willpower. I have tried to diet in the past with no luck but now I feel I belong and in a way have someone to answer to if I mess up. I am so motivated because I want to be able to report a loss each week and I feel weak if I mess up and don't lose what I think I should. I have never had this kind of support from anyone when I tried and I feel it has made a real difference in my efforts. So in essence, I have all of you to thank for my success this far. THANK YOU :cry:

Kristin: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO SYDNEY!!!!! :hb: So neat about IHOP. I bet she enjoyed being sung to. Hope her party is lots of fun too.

Penny: That's cool about the girls you went to school with on tv. I didn't get to watch it. Hope your day was good.

Chris: Glad Tiana likes her highlights. Hope you had a good day.

Mel: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO PATRICK!!!!!

Hi to Geri, Leigh, Ginny, Melinda, Emily, Michelle, Cindi, and anyone else I missed. Hope your day was a nice one.

I'm going to bed as soon as dh calls on his break and the kids are sleep. I've gotten a slight headache probably from lack of sleep because dh and I stayed up til after 1 this morning watching a couple of movies. Then up at 6:15 to get kids to school then ran all day. Tomorrow should be better. Not much planned except for cleaning my neglected kitchen and cooking supper.

Hi all,

This has been a very long day! My first 8 hour workday so I was gone about 10 hours including lunch and commuting. At about 2:30 they called the entire company into the training room. By the looks on people's faces...this never happens...one of the partners of the firm was killed in a single car accident this morning on his way to work. They think he had a heart attack :( . Needless to say, everyone was crying which made me cry (never met the man) and it was very depressing for the rest of the day.

Tomorrow I meet with a sitter...well I have appointments with 2 of them but I might not go to the 2nd one. The 1st is more convenient...closer to me and the freeway...but the other is $2/hour cheaper. Talked to dh and he said it was my decision and I told him I was leaning towards the more expensive one as she was also a pre-school teacher at one time. I'll let you know how that goes.

I'm so beat right now I'm just going to say hi to you all...pass on hugs to all that need and/or want one ;) and say goodnight!

Jill I am jealous of your weather...we'll be lucky to hit 60 tomorrow and I'm not ready for fall. I need to clean the deck floor so that we can finish staining. We did the railings over the weekend.

Love and miss you all!

HI Ladies!

That was sooo neat that Amy and Christina were on Fear Factor.
My hubby's aunt told me the other day but I had forgotten.

Geri: Sooooo sad. Even though you never met him there is still a connection. Simply that it was another life lost. Hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

Penny: Yes the "friend" is still here til Wed morning. She was here from about 7-noon today and she wants to hang out here tomorrow. Doesn't like to stay at my bil's house by herself. No puter so she comes and uses mine. Not too bad, I'll be cleaning and doing laundry so I won't have ot deal with her much. Then she will be leaving. There was so much drama there this weekend with bil's ex wife and kids and my mil.....glad it's not me. I just listen and have not given a bit of advice this time. I'm all ears and no opinion.....lol. If I get my camera working again I will take pics of the new bathroom when we get finished.
