Morning Ladies,

I am so happy for you to go back to school! In life, I always want to feel like I did something great that made me happy. I know we are all moms and our family comes first, but we need some Woman time also and not just Mommy time. :)

Way to Go! :bravo:

Well Andrew has been sleeping since 6pm yesterday b/c of his sinus infection. I sure hope he is feeling better today. I am gonna go to the gym so if not I will leave him with mother in law.

Have a great day :)

:coffee: :coffee: :coffee:

IT'S A GIRL!!! She had Libby Jane this morning, Oct. 16th at 6:23. I'm waiting for the details on weight and etc. She went into labor around midnight and really a hard time having contractions. They said it's normal for someone that's had so many and also the cord was around the baby's neck pretty tight. They said that's another sign of having inconsistent contractions. Sis said she's getting too old for this, LOL. I'll be going over there sometime today and let you all know more about it.

Andrew didn't sleep well. He is still sleeping now, though. He is sooooo congested. I let him play outside alot yesterday because it was so nice and he really seemed to feel better yesterday. The night times always hit harder. Anyways I probably won't get a nap in since I'll be going to see sis.

Michelle, glad you're day got better and the school stuff is working out. I've been feeling well. My hips don't hurt it's my pubic bone that hurts but by no means does it hurt like it has in my past pregnancies. The baby moves like all the time.

Penny, hope your Andrew is feeling better.

Hello to all you other sahm's out there. I'll check in later when I know more about the baby. Hope you all had a good night and have a great day. TTYL

10-16-2004, 11:08 AM
It's me....Andrew is really sick, I think a mix from allergies to his asthma. I'll give him a breathing treatment later. Because of this, we can't go to sis's house. This will be the first time in 8 kids that I didn't get to see right away. It's killing me and the girls are so saddened by it.
Sis said Libby fooled everyone weighing in at 8 lbs. 3 oz. No one thought she to be much over 7 lbs. A real blue face from the cord being around the neck. But otherwise, everyone is fine and healthy. If Andrew isn't better by Monday I'll take him to the doc. If he is better maybe we can go to her house. Tuesday is my doc's appt.
Anyways, I've got to get some things done while Andrew is content. Otherwise, he just wants me to sit and hold him.

10-16-2004, 11:51 AM
Okay no one is ever going to know about my sis if you don't wake up and read this. LOL!!!

I also thought I'd add for a laugh, I guess my tummy is really growing because my panties are rolling underneath my belly. I've been able to wear these up until now.
Hope you all get a good laugh out of that one.

10-16-2004, 11:52 AM
Morning gals :)
Thanks for your kind words. Penny and some others mentioned getting a personal trainer. I've actually been thinking about that seriously. I think there is one who comes to our building even (we have a workout room). Another option is, L.A. Fitness is right down the street and they have daycare, so if I find a personal trainer there, that would work too.

Penny- I hope Andrew is feeling better too!

Crystal- congratulations!!!!! I'm glad mother and baby are now fine, but the cord around the neck thing is scary!

Michelle- hi! Liam's party is coming along fine. We're having soooo many relatives and friends here that it will be crazy for him LOL. How about Teagan's??? Is she walking? Liam is walking. More each day . . . I still can't believe a whole year has gone by!

Okay, I know I'm missing some of you from yesterday's thread, but we're on our way out the door to another Birthday party. Everyone we know has October Birthdays. This is the second of FOUR (not even including Liam's party!). I told DH forget saving money for the holidays, we should only budget for October LOL.

10-16-2004, 12:37 PM
Morning ladies...

Crystal-tell your sister congratulations on her baby!!!! :cheer: That would be so scary to have the cord around the neck. Glad she is okay though.

It sounds like you're going through the same thing I did with Nicole. I hate it when they are that miserable. I'm not sure how you are, but it scares me to death and I am so edgy until Nicole is breathing better and feeling more like herself. I'm so afraid she'll end up in the hospital.

And don't you just hate it when your underwear rolls. Mine always did too. Esp. with Nicole because she was my biggest baby.

Penny-Hope your Andrew gets to feeling better too. It must be that time of year. Well have fun at the gym today.

Michelle-I'm also glad to hear your day got better. Today better be a good one for you, huh?

Well good morning to the rest of you. I've started my day out with a bang...I've drank enough water to sink a battleship and I started cleaning my kitchen right after I got out of bed. I was going to do it last night but after I dropped Tiana off at her dad's ( a nice 30 mile drive...yuck!), my sister Janet called and said she found the place where that stupid pumpkin was... We looked until 10 with flashlights but it was just too dark. Maybe we'll find it today, but knowing our luck, someone already has probably found it. My DH didn't get home last night til after 1 am. He is doing a citizen's police academy training course so last night was his ride along with a patrol officer. He won't admit it, but I know he had fun. He's always wanted to be a cop. So needless to say...I had the bed all to myself for awhile.... :D
Well, time to get back into the swing. This house won't clean itself and I want to get most of it done before my SIL comes to pick up Kayla.

Have any of you tried Herbalife? If so, how much weight did you lose, and how fast are the results?

10-16-2004, 12:53 PM
Did everyone join a gym or what? I haven't, but I am about to. I peeked at the scale this am and got really angry! This surgery thing got me all out of whacka nd I need to get with the program blood sugar has been very high due to poor eating and NO exercise. So it's back to it...BIGTIME!

Went to a cross country meet today, it was cold but fun. Now I am sneezing my head off. I am doing laundry ALLL day long!!

LEIGH!!!!! WB, we missed you!!

YAY CRYSTAL!!! Glad the baby is here finally and doing well. Sorry Andrew is sick. Hope he gets well soon.

HEy Chris, we'll be cleaning together!! Laundry first for me.

Penny...sorry that Andrew is sick, too!! Poor Andrews!! Hope you are enjoying your gym membership. When did you start going? What do you like to do the best? I LOVE those ellipticals and I like group fitness classes, too!

See you gals at the next laundry swap, must get this house in order!!

Love to all!!

10-16-2004, 01:10 PM
Hi all,

Crystal...congrats to your sister!! Glad everything worked out ok with the cord and all! Hope Andrew is feeling better soon!

Leigh..welcome back!!! Woo haven't left us :D . When is Liam's party?

Cindi..must be laundry day...that's on my list too.

Chris..have fun cleaning...if you run out of things to do...hop on over ;) .

Penny..hope your little Andrew is feeling better soon too!

You guys didn't have to send the sick kid vibe over here though...Tony's not feeling well today either. He seemed fine when he got up but by breakfast he was very whiny (more than normal :lol: ) but didn't feel warm. An hour or so later his eyes were glossy and he was he has a dose of Tylenol in him and he's passed out on the couch down here. His temp was at 102.7 so hopefully the tylenol will keep it down for awhile so he can rest. I hate when the little one's get sick 'cause they can't tell you what's wrong. :( At least he got sick today and not Tues night before I go to work! He should be over it by then.

Michelle...I need the challenge. Let me know what you have in mind! What does your dh do?

Red...never tried herbalife...sorry!

Well, I had better go switch the laundry loads. Dh went to run errands and when he comes back I'll let him stay down here with the boys while I attack the upstairs. It needs a serious vacuum, mopping, dusting, decluttering!! Yikes...that's going to be all day :lol: .

Hugs to all...ttyl!

10-16-2004, 02:11 PM
Hi Everyone!

I just got back from the gym. I left Andrew w/ my mil.. He is feeling much better today. Hunter and Nicholas didn't wanna leave the

Anyhow, I did the high impact step aerobics class today... Whew! It felt great! An hour class and now I am ready for the day. I can't wait to see the scale next week :)

You are being quiet! Where are you girlie?

I think a trainer would be good for you :) Maybe once I get smaller I will get one to help me target my "problem areas".... I have many!

Is it just me or when you start losing weight you start having more and more problems!

Poor baby! I can't believe all the kiddos are sick :( Hope the challenge works out for you and Michelle! :)

Oh I hope you find the pumpkin today! Hooray for you being on the ball today! Yah! :)

I think I just love the gym in general. It gives you a good feeling knowing tha you are there making a different in your body. And you feel great afterwards too!

I am so glad that your sis had the baby! HOORAY~ I am glad everything turned out ok with his cord! Nicholas had that happen also. Scary feeling. Dh can't watch Andrew so you can go? I know it is killing you :( Hope he starts feeling better soon!

Well I might take the kids for lunch somewhere so I will check back in later :)

10-16-2004, 02:17 PM
Good Morning Ladies!!

Crystal WWOOOOO HOOOOOO tell your sis I said congrats and that name Libby is adorable!!

Geri I'll figure out a "plan" for us tonight :) while I"m at work and I'll email it to you tomorrow.

Redhead, no haven't tried herbalife, I don't particularly believe in weight loss supplements...only in the meds my doc prescribes for me.

Penny hope you have a wonderful workout at the gym, I'm going downstairs to workout in a few minutes.

Leigh omg Teagan has been walking since she was 11 months exactly and now she's basically running all over the place what a monster but I mean that in the most endearing way possible. I want to see pics of Liams bday party!! I'll post some of Teagans after I finish this post!

Chris today will be much better since I've already gotten to sleep in! LOL I needed the sleep so badly!

Ok girls I'm going to load up Teagans bday pics and then go workout! Love to you all!

10-16-2004, 02:46 PM
Good afternoon all!!!

I'm back!! :) Just got home a little while ago from taking dh back to his truck in Olathe. Boy I am so tired so I hope to get a nap in sometime today.
Crystal, I am so thrilled for your sis!!!! How long was her labor?? How long did she push? The cord being around the neck is very common in women who have had several kids already. My midwife said babies can move so freely inside so the cord usually wraps around the baby or something like that. Tanner had his cord wrapped twice around his neck and once around his body, it was scary. But I'm so glad Libby is here and safe in her mothers arms! Do you think this will be your sis's last baby?? How old is she?

Well I'd love to get personal to everyone else but I have a million things to catch up on here, like housework and lunch and such, but I will be around later!! :) So glad to be back!

10-16-2004, 03:17 PM
Thanks everyone for your congrats.

Penny, dh is working all day today and tomorrow for his grandparents so I won't get a chance to go at all.

Spryng, sis is 31 and says she's getting too old for this. She would love this to be her last but neither her nor bil believe in birth control at all, so it's all in God's hands.

Okay, Andrew is terribly ill. If he's not better by Monday he'll go to the doc. TTYL

10-16-2004, 03:42 PM
Hey everyone! Well I weighed this morning as well as yesterday cuz I just felt like it and I was down another .5! So I'm gonna say 1 pound for the week and I will try not to peek till next Friday! LOL So now I need an even 10 pounds to get to my goal weight!

Never did get the the store yesterday since mom and I got side tracked at the mall! LOL Got some good stuff though LOL So I guess I will have to face the crowds and go grocery shopping today, don't really want to but I don't think we could survive till tomorrow without it.

Slept horrible last night since Bayley kept dh and I both up till like 3AM!!!!! I think she was gassy and/or constipated but it seemed to have passed and she is napping now so we'll see what happens. I don't feel too tired yet but the day is still young :)

Tonight we have my neice's babtism and birthday party and we are having a chili/potato bar at my sil so I am looking forward to that. Our family hasn't gotten together a lot lately since 3 of us are in college right now so it will be nice to get together and catch up. Tomorrow will be coffee with my cousin and our long lost friend from high school so that should be interesting. After that we are going with a group of friends to the corn maze and pumpkin patch, it should be really fun. I am looking forward to it.

So anyway that is what I am up to, what are you all doing today?

Penny it was great chatting with you last night, I miss doing that. Great job at the gym today! Isn't it great how you feel after the gym, like you have so much energy! Hope you get a lot done with your new energy today! LOL I'm glad Andrew seems to be feeling better, must have been his long sleep, huh? Bayley did that night before last. 6pm-8am. It was lovely

Crystal YAY!! Your an auntie again!! That is a super cute name! Man I respect their beliefs on bc but that is a lot of kids! LOL and to want to be done but not sure if they will have more or not is scary too. I guess just scary financially but having lots of kids would be great!! So sorry Andrew is not feeling well, I hope he gets better so you don't have to go to the doc.

Leigh your back!! I though you had abandoned us forever!! So Liam is walking huh? Not Bayley, we have tricked her into taking a few steps here and there but she doesnt like to do it. She will in her own time though. She walks really good with something to hang onto and push and she stands up on her own, she's just not to keen on the walking. Let us know how the party goes! Do you have a theme?

Chris I was super excited when I read that your sister had found the pumpkin. Did she though? Do you think someone else already found it? I hope you guys do, that would be so cool! Good job on all the water already. I havne't had any yet so I need to get on it!

Cindi you should totally join a gym. It would be so good for you. I'm glad you seem to be healing well from your surgery though. That's great! Have fun with the laundry!!

Geri I hope Tony gets to feeling better, I don't want that sick kid vibe either!! LOL Mabye when I got rid of my flu with those pills it sent them out through the internet LOL Sorry :( Good luck in your laundry, I have to do some too!

Michelle I am jelous of Teagan and Liam walking!! Geez!! Bayley is almost 13 months! I guess normal range is 11-15 months though so she is still on track! Hope you get your exercise in. Can't wait for you to start school!

Hi Spryng glad your back! How was your WI? How was your visit with dh. Good I hope. Hope to talk with ya soon!

Ok I need to get off my butt and get going on this house. I'll chat with y'all later!

10-16-2004, 04:08 PM
I'm back. Taking a break for a bit. I got most of the house cleaned. Just have to vacuum the family room and change the litter in the kitty boxes and 2 more loads of laundry... I did cheat though and sat down for an hour to work on Kayla's costume. I am almost done. I have to sew the bodice to the skirt and make the underskirt to make it billow out like a ball gown and then we are done. I think she'll look adorable...but I'm prejudice. :D

Anyhow, still OP today. Drank a little more water. I'm saving most of my points for tonight. My SIL is cooking dinner for us tonight at my MIL's house. We are having steamed crab and shrimp scampi....OH YEAH!!!!
I plan to indulge but not overdo it.

Jill-my sister didn't find it. That pumpkin is buggin me. Too bad its a rock painted like a pumpkin, because if it was real, I'd probably smash the darn thing out of frustration.

Michelle-glad you got some rest. That helps out so much. I didn't get much last night but that's okay. Nicole woke up around 3:30 and wanted to watch "Stitch" (lilo & stitch)...I said no. Then she's "pay toys"...Mama said no to playing with toys. She did settle down and go back to sleep though.

Yeah...where is Melissa? I haven't seen a post from her yet? Hmmm.....

Well gotta get Kayla ready to go. My SIL is picking her up to go "help" her cook. Nicole and I will probably go visit my mom for a bit. She gets lonely alot now since my BIL doesn't work nights anymore so she doesn't have my niece and nephew to take care of. I know she misses them. Maybe we can cheer her up.


10-16-2004, 04:12 PM
Hi again everyone! The birthday party we went to was lots of fun. They had an excellent majician. Also, the people are really good friends of ours. Their daughter is now 6 and I first met them when she was three :) But Dh has known the wife/mother longer- they went to collge together.

Chris- glad you've been doing well with the water!

Michelle- Yeah, Liam's been walking since 11 months as well :) He only runs when he's using his push cart, though. I'd love to see pics of Teagan's party too - Liam's is next Sunday (the 24th). Does Teagan say some words? Liam now says, "dog" "mama" "dada" and he said "banana" a few times one night, but has not repeated it, so who knows what that means?

Cindi- guess we both need to start over.

Geri- oh no! I hope Tony's better soon. Wow. Something's really going around!

Penny- :bravo: on the workouts!

Spryng- hope you get a nap in :D

Crystal- jeez - I sure hope Andrew takes a turn for the better very soon. Poor guy.

Jill, sounds like me- putting off grocery shopping until the last possible minute LOL. :cheer: on the pound gone, gone, gone! Also, it sounds like Bayley is cautious about walking, but she'll be doing it on her own soon enough.

Okay, I'm off now. Liam is asleep - worn out from the party. DH went to try and hunt down formula. He's on a hypoallergenic kind and for some really weird reason, every store I've gone to has been sold out of it :(

10-16-2004, 04:19 PM

And here is a picture of our dogs Jaxxie and Yugi cuddling under the table....

enjoy :)

10-16-2004, 04:22 PM

Looks like Teagan had a great birthday. She is so cute, and so is her sister. I see you have a LLasa Apso (bad spelling)...Are they good with kids? My Dh and daughters are pushing for another dog and DH has put the stipulation that it has to be a small dog. TTFN


10-16-2004, 04:23 PM
Leigh Teagan is saying bath daddy, dog, mommy, cat, there, ball, yum...just a few and she has started brushing her hair which is so cute!!!!

Ok I'm off to check the other boards

10-16-2004, 04:24 PM
Actually yugi is a shih tzu and a very playful one at that! I can't wait til his hair gets long enough I can put a ponytail in it!! lol

10-16-2004, 05:20 PM
It looks like Teagan had a great time at the party! And Yugi is just so cute ;)
Is that your arm in the pic.... :) It looks nice :lol:

We have a Yorkie and she is sooo good with the kids :)

WTG on the other .5 pound! WOOHOO! I was down again this morning but I am gonna not weigh again until next Friday :) After Tom leaves :) Congrats again!

Glad you had such a great time at the party! Let us know what you decide about the trainer!

We are glad to have you back :) Hope you get caught up on all your housework!

I am so sorry Andrew isn't feeling any better. Do you have a Saturday clinic there? I will keep him in my prayers.

Well I am gonna lay down with the kids for a little while :) Have a great day!

10-16-2004, 06:08 PM
Ohhh! I love those photos, Michelle :)

Penny- did you get a nap in?

Well, I'm considering starting that Step Diet - the home page here has a link to a book review of it. I think, since I walk anyway, this may be eay to integrate into my life. It's basically walking a certain number of steps as well as reducing portion sizes, but it isn't overly restrictive. I may begin to use the principles to make them a part of my daily life. I think my only concern is finding places to walk once it gets cold, but they probably give suggestions for that in the book. I'm still thinking about it though - not sure. I have to look at it in person before I decide. Also, still want to keep the possibility of a personal trainer . . .

10-16-2004, 06:13 PM
Hi everyone! How’s the day going for everyone? Me… bad as always. But.. Good news! I did exercise this morning. I went walking for 45 minutes. Mostly because I was pissed off with my dh… which I still am… but it was exercise nonetheless . I started off ok, with a salad with crabmeat and f/f dressing. But.. Then I got bored and lazy and ate about 6 chocolate chip cookies. The trim-spa seemed to work.. Until then. Or maybe it didn’t work at all. Who knows… I’m in a crappy mood today… it’s PMS. I know it… and I look and feel even fatter today. I hate the way I look right now. There’s more fat on my body now.. Then before I lost the weight.. What kind of bull is that? Sorry chicks.. But I totally suck today. Just needed to vent for a while! I started watching I Robot yesterday on DVD… if anybody is wondering.. (I LOVE BOOTLEG!) :) And anyone else who has a life as lousy as mine knows why. :lol3:Mom’s never get to go see movies… at least this mom… Anyways, I saw Will Smiths butt… the only darn reason I wanted to see the movie.. But I started getting into it. I guess I’ll watch the end and maybe do some sit ups or something.

Penny.. I PM’d you about the clothes. Thanks soo much for your encouragement.

Ok… EVERYONE!! You all have been SO encouraging!!!! You all are soo sweet and your words…even though today it don’t seem like it.. Are really helping me out!

Crystal… sorry about Andrew.. I hope he feels better.. But on the up side.. Congrats on the new Niece!!! I can’t wait until I have one… well actually I can. My lil sis is only 18! :lol:

Michelle- Great pics! What cuties.!! The doggies and the babies are beautiful!! :)

Well I better go before it’s too late! Luv u all!

10-16-2004, 07:49 PM
Penny, I'm here, and I'm so glad that Andrew is feeling better.

Michelle, great pics of the kids. So nice of you to share.

LEigh, I am so glad you're back to be with us. You'll get back on track. Join our challange.

Crystal, Congrats on the new baby niece. I bet she's beautiful!

Jaymi, HI!

Chris, How ru?

Deana, where r u ? hope you are having a great weekend. I hope you don't think I was being to pushy about the curves thing. I know you'd be there if you could.

Anyway, ladies, I just skimmed through posts. I am beat. Bugga up 3 nights in a row with a cold as well. I thought it was an ear infection, but they are clear. Oh and the dr still wants us to go to the Endo, so we are going on the 26th at 8:15 a.m. . Other issues the dr wants checked too. Ughhh, it's always something with him. We are getting there though. I think, by the time he's three, we'll have all these quirks worked out.

I am so tired and cranky. so no body mess with me...ok?! lol . seriously, if somebody tried to pick an argument with me, they'd be sorry. Mrs. Grumby needs a week of sleep straight through. Have a good night all. see ya tomorrow.

10-16-2004, 09:19 PM
Hi ladies!

I'm back from my training, picked up pizza for supper and got dh off to work. Now I'm sitting here trying to type this with ear drops in and my head cocked sideways.....not easy!!!

I wish I could get personal but this is so hard to read sideways. I need to be laying down.

Lunch at the training session was chili, I had about a cup and homemade chicken noodle soup, I had abou 1/2 cup and some carrot and celery sticks. So I think I did good. I took my own snacks and drank water all day. I got 80 oz down so far and will hopefully get another 20.

This is taking so long to type because I keep making errors and correcting them.

WTG to the losers. WTG on Libby. WTG to those that got to clean.

Mel: No I didn't think you were being pushy. You are right, if I could I would be there. Maybe smoething will come up in the next couple months.

I'm going to lay down for a bit while the kids watch a movie.

I'll be back on in about an hour or less and get more personal then.


10-16-2004, 09:20 PM
btw, my pizza was a small garden and I only ate half. 500 cals.

10-16-2004, 10:28 PM
Penny yes thats my arm lol thanks for making me laugh LOL you crazy chick!!

Ok I need everyone to email me their addy at

That isn't my main addy but just put this one incase some wierdo picks up my email address lol. so just take out the no spam part and email your address to me please that is only if you are comfortable doing so.

I feel great I've been totally on plan today I had a 6inch sub that I made. roast beef and light may which is only 1pt per tbs, and 1 slice of fat free craft cheese at 1 point per slice and it really tastes like cheese too!! and 1 tsp mustard on a whole wheat roll with lettuce and tomato. I also had half a pear so I'm at about 15 points for the day and I'm going to have a 3 inch sub for dinner with a small banana and a small pear.

Geri, I've been thinking about our challenge and I want to encourage both of us to drink at least 80 oz of water a day (don't want to set too high so we feel like failures if we don't meet it) 3 servings of fruit, 4 servings of veggies and not the canned variety lol. frozen or fresh would be best for us and then at least 20 minutes of exercise a day. Anything you want to add or do I sound like the challenge ****? (hey I'm german I can say **** ;) LOL )

Oh yeah Penny your a doll I'll paypal you the money as soon as you let me know how much :D Thanks for doing that, your clothes will be my new goal since they are all so cute, just like you ;) ummmm yeah thats right I'm azz kissing LOL and yess I know I spelled it with 2 z's but I try not to offend anyone ;)

Jill hang in there Bayley will walk when she is ready to :D Taylor was a big chicken when it came to walking and she walked like the day before her first bday.

Oh BTW speaking of my dd Taylor she has totally kicked the binky habit and she has been without binky (even at bedtime) for 2 weeks now (I think) She doesn't even ask for it anymore. I also went and bought her some cloth training pants, the pullups I think were still too diaper like to her and didn't make her feel like she should go to the bathroom. But she seems to be doing well with the new cloth trainers.

Spryng can't wait to hear about your job!! I hope you get it!!

Deana MMMM pizza!! Yummy!! I hope your ear gets better soon!

Oh a sad thing happened today, my sisters pomeranian got hit by a car, he ran out the front door :( They took him to the vet immediately or rather called the vet and they met them there immediately, it looks like he broke his pelvis which will heal, and either fractured or broke his tailbone so there could be nerve damage there that would prevent him from peeing or pooping...also they did xrays and they can't locate his bladder, they don't know if he emptied it out really well when he got hit or if it burst, they are keeping an eye on him at the moment but will know more come monday about the options available to them. I feel so bad for her :( Everyone please say a prayer for my sister that she can remain strong no matter what decisions have to be made.

Jaymi hang in there and GET YOUR BUTT BACK ON PLAN!!!! I'm comin down to kick the crap out of you if you don't get it in gear ;) Yeah so now I'm the diet drill sargeant LOL You can do it!! Look at the success you have already achieved come on girl!!!

Chris, How are things going? It is so rainy over here!! How does the weather in Billings look? I even heard that its supposed to snow soon!! YUCK!! How are the kids?

Well I see I've gotten a bit long winded here and I'm at work so I better go for now! I will talk to you all later!!

Lots of love!!

Okay, dinner was great. I had one crab leg, 3 shrimp, and a piece of steak along with a baby baked potato...Thought I was doing okay until I got home and counted up the points for that feast...OUCH! over 18 pts. I've overdone it. Maybe I can walk some of it off tomorrow.

I'm about ready to roll over and die. I am just wiped today. At least I haven't gotten sick yet since its my "drug day". All my pills are down and now I got one more week to not worry about em.

Well, I'm going to throw myself across the bed and not move until I absolutely have to. I wish that would be a week from now. Okay, a girl can dream...

Well I watched a movie with the kids after I got up from the ear drop session. Now I'm back to get personal and everyone had probably gone to bed. Oh well, I'm gonna do it anyway :D .

Crystal: Congrats on being an aunt again and Congrat to sis for finally putting us out of our wondering misery :lol: . Hope Andrew gets to feeling better soon. Poor guy!

Penny: Hope your Andrew gets better soon too. I hate it when mine are sick. But then again I hate it when I don't feel good and they don't seem to feel like it's anything to worry about. A little compassion would be nice now and then. Ok, I'm whining! I'll stop. WTG on the workout this morning!

Leigh: YEAH YOU'RE BACK!!! We really missed you. Get back on plan with us. We want a good WI soon! Can't wait to hear how Liam's birthday party goes and see pics. He's getting so big.

Chris: :bravo: on the water today. Where's that darned pumpkin? We want you and sis to win that $500!!! I LOVE seafood. Get some rest tonight.

Red: Sorry, I haven't tried it either.

Cindi: Hope you aren't getting a cold. Take care of yourself. No, I didn't join a gym like everyone else. I want to join Curves but the start up fee is too high. I'm waiting for a free startup special. Then dh will make sure I do. I may even ask him to pay for the start up for my birthday next month. Yeah, that would be a great birthday present. Maybe I can get my mom and his mom to pitch in to cover it for my birthday present. Wow, I just thought of that while I typed it. Funny, I wasn't feeling brilliant at all. Maybe it's just a stroke of conniving??? ;)

Geri: Hope you got your cleaning done today. Wanna come do mine? ;) Hope Tony is feeling better.

Michelle: So glad you were in a better mood today. Teagan's birthday pics are just adorable. So are the doggies. Glad you are getting to go back to school. I wish I could sometimes and I may next year when Abby starts Kindergarten, all day. Then I can take some classes at the Junior College. And yes your arm is beautiful ;) . Emailed my addy. Woohoo on no binky and training pants. Will be thinking about sis and her doggie. Pick me up on the way to Florida to take care of Jaymi, would ya?

Spryng: Sounds like you had a nice time with dh home. How long is he gone this time? I am still :crossed: for you on the job. Did you get a nap today?

Jill: Did you get to the store today? Does Bayley have anything she can walk behind to help coax her into walking more? With Andrew he had a walker he went everywhere in and I worried he wouldn't walk for a while then I got him a walk behind activity thing and he took off the day before his first birthday too. She will be walking before you know it. Then you will wonder why you ever wanted her to in the first place.....LOL. Kind of like teaching them to talk, we spend the next 18 years wishing they had learned how to be quiet instead :rofl:. Hope the baptism went well and supper at sil's. Have fun tomorrow meeting up with the old friend!

Jaymi: Dear, where is your smile today? Put it on tomorrow when you get dressed and tell yourself it is going to be an awesome day :D . You know you can do this girl! Look how far you have come already. Do it for you if for no one else, so you can live a long happy life and be more active with your kids. If dh wants to be a butt about things, let him. But do this for YOU!!!

Mel: Hope Patrick gets to feeling better soon too. (knock on wood) none of mine are sick, just me. Seems like everyone is dealing with ill kids right now.

Ok, I think I got everyone. If I missed you, sorry. I'll be back tomorrow. I've already warned the kids that tomorrow is cleaning day for sure because we have a friend coming in from Michigan on Wednesday to pick dh up to go play cowboy and it will be clean before he gets here. So we see how much of a fight I have to put up to get it done :devil: . And they have to clean out the van before the next scout meeting on Wednesday anyway :D .

Talk to all you wonderful ladies in the morning. Time for bed for me.
