Oh Ashley! I'm sending pudgy baby vibes your way.
How is she nursing? I know you said your milk has come in (though I can't remember how long ago that was).
Sending positive vibes Charlie's way! I hope she doesn't lose any more weight.
Alisha, lovely pictures! I'm glad you had a great wedding day.
Rin, I MISS YOU!!!
In other news, not relating to this sub-forum at all:
I confess: That is all!
I confess I almost slapped DH this morning! I have really had enough with his language. I know I said I was just going to work on teaching Josh it's wrong, but it really amazes me how quickly DH has to turn to that kind of language to express how he feels. When I told him to say "I'm really angry!" or "Josh is frustrating me!" instead, he said "nobody uses those words. People swear." I said that doesn't make it right! I said that pretty much everyone I know think it's appalling when people swear in front of kids, he said "I don't use the words you do." I said sarcastically, do you need me to tell you what appalling means? And he said "um....I think it means disturbing..." (which I guess is close, lol)
Josh and I were dressed up for a Halloween party and I wanted DH to take a picture of us but Josh was doing something else. DH got so frustratated about that, that he let out a string of swears. Yeah it was under his breath but I heard it. I told him to get away, he was just making it worse, and Josh was starting to cry. I raised a hand to DH and DH gave me a look like he would break my neck if I dared to do it. I know it was poor behavior on my part also but I am tired of just letting it go. And DH thinks all the times he *doesn't* swear should count as good behavior. Ha! I don't care about the ones you manage to hold back--I want all the swearing gone! If you can hold back some of them, hold them all back please!

I'm so sorry for your loss Silver Star
Teneille, Charlie will be staying home, I can just feel it. Gage did the same thing and I had to drive back to the hospital less than 24 hrs after I got out because he had lost so much weight and they wanted to bring him back in if nothing had changed...he gained 30 oz!!!!! Those little suckers know when they are in deep doodoo
Me: Julie-46 DH: Kelly-52 DD: Rhianna-17 DS: Gage-He's 3!
I confess today sucks... After the whole weight check this morning, I finally had a dentist appointment to get this tooth looked at. I have a golf ball size lump in my cheek, and I thought it was infection from this tooth.
Well, I have a consult with the oral surgeon next monday because the dentist said either the tooth is VERY infected (Which he doesnt think is the case because of how hard the lump is, plus the fact that its not draining) OR it's a mass that needs to be removed and biopsied.
Either way, he said he is very worried.....
Yeah, next monday.. The receptionist "squeezed me in". She said he is booking 6 weeks out -- just for consults! but because of my insurance situation she helped me out..
The tooth itself doesn't hurt, its the lump in my cheek thats bothering me... and mainly just because it feels numb. like I've been shot with Novocain
ACK Ash!!! When it rains it pours! I'm sorry! I hope the consult goes well and it's just a tooth issue and not something worse!! Hang in there mama! I hope Charlie's doing well and feeding well and I hope she's gained weight by the morning.

My MIL said she made a mistake with how she told me to make the meat pies. She doesn't use the Lebanese allspice in meat pies--she uses it in the little meat turnovers....so while I think it will taste fine, this is how she said she makes it--
There's something called Bell seasoning--it's in a yellow sort of tin with a chicken on it. She says it's in supermarkets. She also uses ground cloves. She said she just puts a lot of those in until you can really smell it.
I'm sorry for everyone who is having trouble right now.
Do you all remember that video game Frogger? That's how this whole life thing feels to me sometimes.
I hope everyone has a better day tomorrow.

I confess, I just found a really cool flickr photographer that has some amazing pics.
I confess, I'm not a huge fan of spiders but these photos are fascinating...
I made the mistake of click on that link, and me... arachnophobic! *shudder*
I think I'm ready to catch up, after being lame for a little while. Sorry if I miss stuff.
I confess - my dear husband may have swine flu. He's not allowed back at work till Friday and then only if he's cleared at the doc appt Thursday. They took cultures for testing to confirm swine vs seasonal.
I confess I suspect he also has a raging UTI. Why do men not KNOW when they have a UTI like women do? Last weekend he complained of sudden and very sharp pains in the area of his kidneys. I said he should probably get to the dr to pee in a cup. This morning there was a tinge of blood in his urine. They are looking into that as well, but I doubt he would have gone to the doc for it if it weren't for a visit for the flu.
