    Lydia, you not only need a surveyor, but a fence... and maybe a cop.

    Lydia, how scary! I hope you find a surveyor and can build a nice big fence. (That your neighbor helps pay for.)

    LOL well they didn't sound terrible, but I think for me I would have to try them to really get it. And I'd probably love them. But I've never seen them! Maybe I could find a recipe somewhere.

    All I can say is she has absolutely no social skills. She said that 15 minutes after meeting me (and she didn't know it, but 3 weeks after my miscarriage ... yeah, really). And then she wonders why people run from her school like rats from a sinking ship.

    While I worked there, her school was vandalized every single time we had a day off of school. Every single time. I've never seen anything like it. And although it wasn't in the greatest part of town, it by far wasn't in the worst part, either.

    I confess for the card DH got me for our anniversary, the card was sweet and sappy, but what he said at the bottom made me laugh. He said something like I love you blah blah blah, "and thank you for 7 years of wonderful service". This man ONLY thinks about sex. I think that's as far as his brain can comprehend. Even after his sweet words, he has to put in something sexual. I got a good chuckle.

    I confess ... CD 1 today. Which is a heck of a lot better than CD 58 when you're testing negative.

    Almost never. The only one I've ever had that long before is post m/c. This one I'm fairly certain is stress.

    Mandy about your ex-principal. Working with thoughtless people who are in charge is frustrating.

    Lydia. . .I hope you get a nice tall fence. . .and soon!

    I confess I was just looking at houses online and really want to move for some reason.

    Ooooh there was Bejeweled on the little touch screen on the seat in front of me during a flight from the US to Amsterdam. Guess what I did for 7 hours

    Lydia, I confess that I think you're showing more than I am. How are the twins responding to the baby news?

    Bejeweled! It's entertained me on at least 5 US-AMS flights and will again next month, too!

    Lydia-LOVE the avatar! I can't wait to see your belly grow this time around! I think I sort of missed it last time-I was fairly new on the boards and didn't know who I should be following yet

    I confess dh came home early once he heard about my confrontation with the neighbors. He was furious! He told me not to give them the birthday presents I'd bought for their son and not to have their daughter come over and hang out anymore. And we found out that the bil had asked MY contractors to help him measure some of MY property, while he was trespassing on it. My contractors told him he wasn't their boss. I'm really unhappy about this situation, because I liked having them as friends and I thought they were really good neighbors. I have sensed a distance between us lately, and I think the bil is instigating a lot of this.

    Thanks for all the comments about my avatar. If you go back on my blog to the early days (2006-2007), I added in some pre-birth entries, including belly pictures with the twins.

    I AM totally showing, and I only have one pair of maternity pants. It's pretty obvious to random strangers that I'm pregnant. I'm showing more now than I did at 30 weeks with my first pregnancy. One of the other multiples moms suggested I'd be one of those people with only one baby on the first ultrasound and they'd find one or two more at the next one. Just when I was feeling safe!

    ETA: The twins are saying hi to my belly and kissing the baby (belly) in the mornings when they wake up, and at other random times. I still don't think they know what's in store for them, though.

    I'm sorry to hear about all the goings-on with your neighbors. Especially since you all were friends to start with!

    How sweet that they are already kissing the baby, awwww!

    On the note of siblings, Lorelai was practically begging for one at the playground the other day. There was a 7-month-old that she stuck to like glue... his poor parents, she was on top of him hugging him and patting his hair and she kept repeating, "Good baby! Mommy see baby?"

    I told DH that we need to get her more babydolls.

    Lydia, do you think the fact that you've had twins is the reason you are showing more this time?

    Undoubtedly, and just the fact that it's my third pregnancy. I thought I had a trim tummy, and it was especially flat after my illness this past summer, but I guess inside it was still the belly it knew it could be. Everything is stretched out from before. Others in my birth month on their third are experiencing the same thing.

    I did that once, too. I got off the plane looking like I had put Tabasco in my eyes.
