Re: WEEKLY CHATTER - Sept. 25th

A vote for hate the smell of bacon, don't mind the taste.

I have a bunch of kitchen gadgets, waffle iron, griddle, crockpots (sm and reg), toaster oven, toaster(dh's recent purchase), kitchenaid (with several attachments) I've tried yogurt makers, and several other things out in the past.

my sewing machine is a huskystar they don't make it anymore, and sometimes on a straight stitch it goes zig zag for me without my switching it. I would love to get an upgrade but no money for it. atleast with this machine I don't struggle with the tension like i did with my last one.

multiples for wedding gifts happened to be 9x13 pans. I kept 4 glass ones and got rid of the aluminum and metal ones. in 15 years, 1 has broken.

sorry to hear about the broken arm at elbow and it possibility needing surgery. if it happened at practice or games the league should have insurance to help cover the cost of your deductible, as long as its above a certain amount. Ours baseball accident deducible was $50 and our out of pocket cost was $30 so they didn't help us.

Thanks!!! I don't think I'm brave at all. Just a lady whose always wanted to be a mommy. I'm just blessed to have my little guy. He's the answer to a long held prayer. I hadn't thought about #2 that much but another lady from the clinic I conceived through will be doing another round of IVF the beginning of next year and it really got me thinking this past week about trying again. We aren't getting any younger and it's taken us a while to conceive our babies via fertility treatments so I completely understand where she's coming from. I have appointments set up to speak with my OBGYN and the fertility doctor (I have PCOS and had gestational diabetes and high bp while pregnant). I just turned 35 and would love for Ezra to have a sibling.

I got married in Vegas (didn't get married in the Catholic church until over a decade later.)

Got one gift. Guess what?
Waffle iron!

I feel much better when active.

Are you going back?

I just truly don't have a good place to store small appliances in this kitchen so no fun gadgets for me until we move :sadface:
Consider a good thing. They seem to multiply.

So waiting on that phone call. She said they come to your house, so thats nice, but I'm nervous for him.
Early Intervention is usually very good.

I meet with my OBGYN next week and the fertility doctor two weeks after that. My son was my third IUI with donor sperm (I'm a single mom). I'd love for him to have a sibling. I'm not getting any younger and I'd rather start the process up again sooner rather than later. Hope everyone is doing good.
No problem just jumping in when you can. Real life comes first.

B--i have a hard time motivating myself to exercise but always feel great afterward. I need to start doing more, my pants are getting snug.

K--I'm assuming it's an early intervention program? Those are typically great. 1 of my bios and two bonus kids have had speech through EI. They will come out and pretty much play, but carefully watch his speech and communication at the same time. He will have to be delayed a certain amount to qualify (in our state it's 50%, so an 18 month old would be speaking on a 9 month or younger level). If he does qualify they will set up visits to help, which still mostly look like play. Whether he does or does not qualify, they can still give you great tips to help move things along. It really isn't bad.
Yeah, I'm letting the kids make donuts and then the fryer is out of here.

I was wary of having someone come here but it worked out great.

I feel good energy-wise but I'm having a hard time moving my legs! Hopefully that will get better over time as I keep going.

Have any of you tried motherwort for postpartum/baby blues stuff? I've been having some extra anxiety and exhaustion, moodiness, etc. so I asked my midwife if she had any recommendations and she said motherwort. Got some yesterday. I didn't notice a big difference yesterday (I added some to my raspberry leaf tea) but I'm going to try some again in a minute and see how it goes. I am feeling better emotionally today than I was yesterday, so maybe it's already working!

My husband picked elderberries on Saturday so I'll be making elderberry syrup in a little bit too. Trying a different recipe, but I think it will be good. This one: Tyrant Farms Elderberry Syrup. Ideally I would make it with honey but honey is like gold where I live, it is SO expensive, so organic sugar will have to do.
Really? How much is honey?

I've never tried Motherswort. Let us know if it helps.

I must have missed the post. It might need surgery?

I have a corning ware set that I've had for ages and they don't break.

Trying to get school done early.

We got 2 blenders for a wedding gift. At some point (not wedding) we were given a waffle iron. We didn't use it for a long time, and one day we decided to bring it out and it didn't work. We must have told the story because we were gifted another waffle iron but the same thing happened, we waited too long and when we tried to use it, it didn't work. We are pancake people for good now.

I'm going back, but maybe not tomorrow. I am so sore today!

It's something like $6 for a little honey bear. And you can't buy it in bulk, it just isn't available. One of the few things I miss Costco for.

The Motherswort seems to be helping...yesterday was my best day in a long time. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel...that we really will get past the I-can't-do-anything-because-I'm-so-tired-and-have-to-hold-my-new-baby-ALL-THE-TIME stage. It also helped that she took a 4 hour nap yesterday. But I can feel hope again. I've been just surviving for so long, since I was first pregnant (this time), and I'm ready to LIVE again.

Re: WEEKLY CHATTER - Sept. 25th

My Thursday Pilates class has started back up! They canceled it over the summer. So excited. I also got out for a jog at 5am this morning (its SO dark but before the kids wake up is my best option).

I just started working out again and it is my abs that are killling me. I know the pain is good but still WHY!!!!

You must really like waffles for everyone to buy you guys a waffle iron LOL.


My house is a complete disaster and I have no motivation to clean it. I want it cleaned I just don't want to do it, but I am going to try. I am giving myself until on the computer then it is an all family cleaning time.

Re: WEEKLY CHATTER - Sept. 25th

Running around in the rain today. Went to See You at the Pole at both the local high school and middle school. Took Aiden to bowling, Autumn to work, did gymnastics class with Hannah, got lunch, picked up Aiden, got a little diesel, and back for Natalie's gymnastics class. After this, we are going to go sit at Chick-fil-A and wait for Autumn to get off work, as there isn't enough time to other going home. She and I then have Bible study with a friend before church tonight. Won't be home much at all.

Hannah apparently is finished eating -- she is ripping her chicken nugget and throwing it on the floor of the truck. This is one part of having littles that I did not miss. Good thing littles are so stinking cute.

It can really be so exhausting you don't know how anything can get done.

Glad you had a good day.

I was cleaning last night and this morning. These kids astound me with their capacity to create grime.
My dh says he would love a custodial job. We should trade jobs I tell him.
I totally forgot I have an event tonight and I can't go to Zumba. I'm so bummed. I completely planned my day and week around it. I was hoping to increase to 2X next week etc.
I'm thinking I'm just going to have to do some sort of workout today before the event.
