Morning ladies

We should be outside enjoying the nice hot weather... by the weekend it's supposed to be 70. In the upper 80's today. We may get 1 or 2 more hours in the pool before fall officially hits. According to the Farmers Almanac we're supposed to get a lot of snow this winter. That'll be fun with the kids .

Spryng... thanks for explaining why dh is looking for a new job. Hopefully he'll find something he likes that pays well enough for you to stay home. So, you've choosen to take the Pill hey? You'll just have to make taking it a part of your daily routine. I used to keep mine in my makeup bag so that when I would "paint the barn" I would see them. Now that I'm not working I don't always go into the makeup bag so it's a good thing I don't have to worry about that anymore .

Michelle...I know nothing about Allie Scott...I'll check it out later...but BIG HUGS to you! Love ya girl!!

Crystal... my advice to you... and you can take it or leave it .. is to talk to Dh..even if he won't listen to you! He has no right to get you into a big loan when you're going to go on WIC and he's going to collect unemployment. What would happen if...GOD FORBID, anything happened to either one of you???? You have to share your dreams with him or you'll be miserable or resentful of him. I don't think it's all hormonal. Sorry...had to share . Congrats on hitting the 5 month mark.

Deana.....Wooo hooo on the 3 lbs gone! Way to go!!

Leigh... I had FNC on this morning to see where Dh was and I went into the kitchen and I heard "that was Jonathan Serrie" ... and I missed his report! Oh well... just know I'm thinking of him and hoping he is safe.

Cindi... OMG girl. You have had your share!! My prayers are with you at your biopsy...for Christian's surgery tomorrow and for poor Hope. How are you going to keep gloves on a little girl???

Penny...stay safe.

Hi to everyone else. I need to do a little banking and get off of here and get the boys outside for awhile. Did my 3 mile walk this morning and have eaten well so far . OK, so it's only 10:48 am...but it's a start!

Have a great day and I'll TTYL!

Hey Deana! West Coast here so I don't get up till way later than everyone else! LOL

Man lot's to say this morning ladies, I am supposed to go to the gym in a few minutes but mom will have to wait so I can post! LOL Had fun chatting with you Kristin, Spryng and Deana! We ALL need to try and get there more often, I miss group chats! Really scared about the hurricane and I live on the west coast, I've been watching it like a hawk lately. As I'm sure most of you have. Not much planned for the day, need to go to the gym and then take back a couple things to Michaels (craft store) and then come back and walk to City Hall and argue about the water bill again. I'm telling ya I'm not going to pay a bill that is triple what it's ever been in the 4 years I've lived here!! Just not going to do it, they will probably just say, ok well we'll turn your water off! That will shut me up! LOL Ok anyway............................................ .....................

Crystal I feel like your hormones are only playing a small part in your unhappiness right now. Correct me if I'm wrong but from all the posts I have read since I joined it sounds like you have very different views from your husband on how you want you life to go. Constantly you are giving up what you want for what he wants and I don't think that is fair. Yes I know that you believe that you need to follow your husband where he leads you but I strongly believe that he needs to honor your wishes as well. I don't know you or your husband except from these posts so you need to do what you know is best but from my personal opinion I would talk to him about how you are feeling. Maybe it won't make a difference in his decisions but at least you would know that you were heard and that you gave it your best try. It might make you feel better. However don't do anything that you don't feel comfortable with. Sorry if this is too peresonal but I felt compelled to say something. Congrats on being 5 months today! You are over the hump, hope you get a lot done today.

Deana kick back and celebrate!! 3 pounds gone!!!! Yay!!!! Go ahead and veg. out today we won't tell anyone! It was great chatting with you last night, keep us updated on the chickies, k?

Penny I hope that you get supplies and I also hope you don't need to use them! Gosh thanks for keeping us updated on what is going on with you! I am thinking about you constantly! Stay safe and keep us informed.

Spryng I am up for the water challenge totally!! I will be guzzling it ALL day! LOL Sorry you are not feeling so hot, it's weird how eating the wrong thing can do that to you. It was almost immidiate after I ate pizza the other night that I didn't feel good, crazy. Drink a lot of water and get your exercise in and I'm sure you will feel better.

Hi Michelle sorry I didn't stay up last night I got really tired and had to get to bed. How was the rest of work last night? Can't wait for your days off!!

Leigh I will keep dh in my thoughts too, I hope he is safe during the hurricane, they've kept him safe so far right? He'll be fine. Good luck with your deep cleaning, it's my deep cleaning day too but I did most of it on Sat. so I won't have to do much today. How was your sleep last night?

Cindi your right it's not fair!! LOL But what doesnt kill us makes us stronger right? Sorry I'm sure that didn't help much. I'll be thinking of Christian tomorrow. I'm sure everything will go great. You need to take some time for yourself, I know easier said than done, right? I hope you don't come down with that cold. Good luck today with your biopsy. Let us know how it turns out, ok?


All right ladies I have spent enough time on this and need to go get the baby, get dressed and get to the gym. I'll talk to you all later!

QOTD: My parents were great! My dad had a great upbringing and brought that to our family and was a great dad. My mom didn't like the way she grew up and so decided to try not to do anything that her mother did and it worked good, she is a great mom. Still is! I pretty much parent like they did I guess but Bayleys not even 1 yet so I don't know! LOL Ok that's it for real now!! TTYL

Jill: Thanks. I needed someone to tell me to kick back.....NOT !!!! My kitchen is horrible today and I have laundry out the ying yang. So I still haven't touched either, or my water or excercise. I HAVE to get cracking. It's already almost noon. I feel guilty sitting here all day. Of course dh never is much help either, he tells me it's ok to take a day off and I sit around feeling bad about it.....darned if I do, darned if I don't. Hope you have a great trip to the gym. We are supposed to get rain tomorrow but so far only a 30% chance. OK, OK I'm going now......I don't need a day off right now, maybe when I get everything caught up.....HAHAHA!!!!!

I'm back!

Just got home from the bank and got some groceries. Then dh calls me on the way home to inform me he has to be in florida by thursday!! Can you believe that?! Why would his stupid company give him a load that goes to florida?? I know they see the news. Now I am worried. I know he is a safe driver but every state he will be going through will be affected by this hurricane and he's never been in anything like that before so I am so worried. Leigh, you'll have to keep my updated on the path of the storm since your dh knows more about it than I do. I saw him on the news the other day when he was in sarasota. Why did they move him out of florida??

Well, I had a smoothie for breakfast and now I'm starving again so I need to eat lunch. My nausea passed a little while ago so I'm feeling a bit more normal. Boy I hate this phase of BC pills. Hope it doesn't last long.
Ok, I will get personal in a little bit. TTYL!

hey there to all of you !!! I'm baaaccckkk - from a long whirlwind weekend, with dh home, spryng I know you can understand... adn then taking all day yesterday to clean up ! It seems I have missed a lot, I don't know anything about this Allie Scott thing. I will have to go look at the site about it. It sounds sad, so I'm not sure I can handle that today. :>: A little boy in Sydneys pre-school class was in a bad car accident and is now mild ******ation. I feel so bad for the family. they are actually going to use his situation to teach children about "different kinds of people"...and bring him up to class even though he doesn't know what is going on anymore....I am a room mom, and I will be there to help, but it will be so hard.
I had a blast talking to spryng, jill and especially you Deana! I found out alot about you and the time flew! It was so nice to just visit with someone that I have stuff in common with...not my almost 3 year old! !!!
I WILL get back here to get personal during nap time today. (which is soon I hope)...I haven't done a darn thing around my house after just the initial clean up from the weekend...so I need to get busy on that too. I have something for all of you to read below from me to you :
I wrote your name on a piece of paper, but by accident I threw it away.

I wrote your name on my hand, but it washed away.

I wrote your name in the sand, but the waves whispered it away

I wrote your name in my heart, and forever it will stay.

love to you all....I will say a special little prayer of strength, comfort and peace for everyone today..with this storm and the death of that little girl, I think we could all use it Love to you all TTYL

Alright girls, thanks Leigh, Geri and Jill for all of your words. You are right and I'm going to tell him if and when the opportunity arises. He's a very case sensitive kind of person, so I have to pick the right time to say it. Maybe I can "PREAPARE" (LOL) him tonight for a long talk. It could work. Just hope it's not a waste of time, LOL!!!

Spryng, that doesn't make since to send someone to Florida for anything right now. Maybe that will change.

Okay, finishing lunch, then Andrew will lay down and we can school. Reading has really been coming along.
TTYL

Hey girls got back from the gym earlier and had a late breakfast and feel drained! I don't know why. I usually feel good after working out but I am just tired. I think it's because TOM is coming and I didn't eat good this past weekend. I'll get over it though. I need to just get up and do something and that might get me out of this "mode". Anyway,

Deana I hope you get motivated too! I know I'm not much help but I have been doing the same thing! I haven't seen you post for awhile so maybe you are getting something done.

Kristin glad to have you back! It was fun chatting last night. I can't wait till Thursday to find out your blood test results!! I'm so impatient!!

Cindi sorry about the reschedule that stinks. I guess it's good though if you weren't feeling good to start. Let us know how you are feeling and how Christians surgery goes. I'd come watch him for you if I could!

Crystal I think it is a good idea to talk to dh. Your right about waiting till the right time. It makes all the difference in the world. Hope you are getting school done.

Spryng I am sucking on the water right now, I need to just do it! I'll let you know how I am doing later, hopefully better than I am now. Hope you got a nap in.

So I found this great article about how certain foods help your skin and it is totally amazing! After watching Oprah last week and them saying how Almonds are good for you I went out and bought some and have been eating them like they said. One handful a day and you would not believe the difference in my skin. At first I didn't know what was going on but after I read the article it made SENSE to me. So I am going to post it here if you want to read it. Ok I am going to try and pick my kitchen up and get a few things done. We'll see though! LOL

Good afternoon The condo is clean, clean, clean! And I even took the boys for a 25 minute walk to get a little exercise in. Now I am waiting for Liam to wake from his nap so I can shower. He plays in the bathroom whil I shower, but gives me the most time if he's just woken up

Cindi, I'm still thinking of you and Christian and praying for you both.

Deana- that's great that you're also down inches. It's okay to not get anything done once in a while. We all need a little break now and then, right?

Geri- I wonder if I can look at the Farmer's Almanac online . . . I'd love to see what it says about Atlanta this winter. Right now it's actually kind of cool, but I think that's somehow related to Ivan.

Jill- I think DH will be okay too, but I'm a little nervous because he's in Mobile, right where they say there will be some of the most dangerous storm surges, etc. I hope it somehow weakens a lot before it hits land. I'm glad you got to the gym. TOM is here with me now, so I feel your pain

Spryng- what??? Why on earth would they send him to Florida? Which states will he have to drive through to get there? The weather won't be too bad in the long part of Florida, just the panhandle, but I'd be more worried about him driving through states where Ivan is causing wind/rain damage. But if he's going I-10, then that will be horrible.

Kristin- glad you're enjoying DH.

Crystal- yes, use your powers of persuasion!! LOL.

Okay, I'm off to check out the artiocle Jill posted.

Well I ahve managed to get lunch, fold a load of laundry and start another one. That's it. And there is so much more to do. Guess it will still be there tomorrow....lol. Jill, I hope I didn't come across as brash earlier. Just my sense of humor sometimes doesn't come out right. But I did take your advice and kick back today. Thank you. I think I did need it. Thank you too Leigh. Gee I think I'll take a break today after all. It's already after 3, why start much now.....lol

Leigh: I did a search on your dh's name.I didn't realize he was that famous....WOW!!! Hope he is safe. Yes you can look at Old Farmer's Almanac online. Let me get the link for you. http://www.oldfarmersalmanac.com/

Cindi: Hope all goes as planned to get blood work on Friday and that you find someone to sit with Christian while you go.

Almost time for boys to get home from school and wake dh. He has to work again tonight then he's off for 2 nights. We're having company tomorrow night for supper so I have to figure out what we're having so I can tell her what she can bring. Feeding 10 people total and their 2 are picky eaters, even if they are 18 and 20.

Oh well, I'm gone for a bit.

Alright girls, school is done. I've been chatting with mil online for over an hour spilling my guts to her. I'm feeling better but not sure what I'm gonna do. But gotta get off and finish some laundry and get the livingroom picked up before I start dinner.

Jill- you must watch Oprah today. Lori Hacking's mother is on!

Deana- Well, I don't think of DH as famous LOL, but I suppose he has done well with his career. He works very hard and is very dedicated. Thanks for tha almanac link. I'm going to check it out.

Crystal- did MIL give you any advice?

Hey ladies. I am so behind on posts and don't have much time here. I just wanted to say that I have found the childrens Mylanta. I gave one to BUgga and he burped for a half hour. Maybe he is full of gas pains....I will give him another before bed. I had to get it at a full pharmacy instead of supermarket or Cvs type store.

Qotd: I am doing everything different from my parents! My mother was married and divorced 3 times. All my mother ever did was yell, scream and at times even hit or throw you across a room. SHe was under much pressure as a single mother and always thought marrying someone else would solve all her troubles. She tried very hard to get us small vacations which my brother and I always loved. BUt life would have been so much better had she not been verbally or at times physically abusive. She was the type to call you stupid, moron, idiot and so on. I NEVER digrade my children and I never will. I have only given the older one a pat on the butt on rare occasion and a very little slap on the hand to show that it hurt when she was hitting and was small. I couldn't get her stop and I thought maybe I needed to teach her what hurt was. Like I said, it was just a small tap on the hand to sting. I felt bad, but never had to do it again. I never want to be that kind of parent. We fill our childrens lives with love. My dh and I hug them and kiss them all the time and hug and kiss in front of them. We want them to see how much we love each other and how much we love them.

Ok, sorry to go off like that, but it's a touchy subject for me. My mother has changed so much with her 2 younger children., so maybe she realized her mistakes. I think she calls them names when they do something wrong, but not hitting as far as I know.

My prayers are with Allies family.

Hello, Liegh, Jill, Penny, Spryng, Ricci, Crystal, Kristin, Cindi and anyone else I missed. I promise I will catch up soon.

Cindi, I'm sorry you got postponed and I hope all goes well with christian tomorrow. Prayers to you and your family.

BTW, I feel much better today. Thanks for all who asked.

Hello again!

Just got up from my nap. Don't know if the nap was good or bad yet, lol... I'm just too tired to think. I'll be making dinner here in a moment. What are you all having?

Melissa, I hope that mylanta works! Sometimes gas can do strange things to babies (adults too, lol!) and my mom sounds alot like yours... even though she and my dad were married she still was abusive verbally and physically and called us names and all that. I told my dh that if he ever saw my mother in the way I handle my kids or the way I handle him then to knock me out of it, lol. I never want to be her.


Crystal, so glad you were able to talk with your MIL about things... what did she say?

Deana, have you decided what will be for dinner tomorrow night? Sounds fun!

Leigh, as far as I know DH will drive through alabama and georgia to get to florida, I have no idea which hwy he takes, Ill ask him later though. But after he drops the load off they should send him up through the eastern states and not back through those other states. I hope so. Florida looks safe right now but not those others.

Jill, I'm going to check out that article too, sounds interesting!

Well wish I had more time but I have to get dinner going and before I can do that I have to clean it, lol. I've been so tired today and haven't got anything done. TTYL!
