Gyros don't have to be lamb. I love lamb...but the one time my husband tried a lamb burger it literally made him sick, so now he can't even stand the smell.
Stacy, I'm 15 1/2 weeks. I cannot for the life of me put a ticker in my siggy.
I don't care for lamb meat. It has an odd taste to me.
And Stacy, I totally agree with you about why so many marriages fail.

I ate lamb last night. Icelandic lamb is so good! The sheep live in the mountains, basically marinating themselves by eating wild thyme.
Vegetarian + Pregnant= all this meat talk has me close to barfing. Sorry guys.
I confess I'm sick of this place. There are mega churches and billboards asking you to "come walk with Jesus" around every freaking corner. Maybe it makes me seem geo-centric (is that even a word?) but I didn't think places were actually like this, and now I'm starting realize this is what a lot of the country is like.
I don't like most fried things (except chicken fingers, fries, mozz. cheese sticks)....I don't like bacon, I don't like skin on the meat, I don't like things like salad dressings, sausages, cream cheese (only a little once in a while), sour cream, cream soups, anything other than skim milk, don't have a huge sweet tooth.....it's amazing I'm not thinner than a size 24.
I need to lay off the pasta I think....LOVE pasta, popcorn, tomatoes, cheese.
I confess I took Josh to a children's gym place that shows movies some days. I dropped him off and as soon as I left I felt guilty. Plus, I couldn't find the Starbucks that my GPS said was there, so I went to Borders, ordered a drink and walked around. I found that 3 Kittens book Gru reads in Despicable Me so I bought that. LOL
I need to plan better next time...find a spa nearby or something
mmm you guys are making me hungry.
On the marriage thing, my marriage is good now but it's taken an incredible amount of work to get there. Don't regret tjat. I agree that we aren't taught to have healthy marriages. We're fed all this romantic crap and that only goes so far. Marriage only works if both partners are 100% willing and able to do the work to make it a success. If one partner isn't, the other can't do all the work for them.
That said, I slept on the couch last night because I didn' want to sleep alone in our bed.
That's great about the job interview!
Me (40) DH (47) & furbabies * m/c 7/08 4/12 11/12
I have to admit I am so POed at DH. I just overheard him saying to Oscar, while they were doing preschool lessons, "if you don't sit still and finish this activity then you'll have to go to SCHOOL" like it were some kind of PUNISHMENT. A, we don't punish when we're learning. B, school as a punishment even if we did? Dude we may actually SEND him to school some day if it makes sense and what I want him thinking he's done something WRONG to be SENT there?
He usually has so much good sense, don't know WTF has gotten into him today. And then when I came out and said "mama and daddy need to talk for a minute, buddy" DH totally laid into me that I've been attacking "everything" about his parenting lately. Okay yeah, I'm 7 months pregnant and crabby but I have NOT been attacking "everything" and that was just a lame ass excuse to keep me from focusing on the real thing which was that he just used the "threat" of school as a punishment. After a lengthy discussion (fight on his part, he was all sorts of pissed off at ME) he seems to understand my point, but is clearly still mad at me. Mad at ME?
How is it that they can spin it like that? Dan always does that with me too. Drives me insane!
Stacy, that would have upset me too. I think sometimes parents get so caught up in what they want the outcome of their tactics to be, they forget that the journey is where the lesson lies. I don't think I will ever, ever, ever get dbf to understand that. And yes, every time I bring it up to him he tells me all I do is come down on his parenting. Well, sorry dude. When you tell Savana she's going to lose every toy she has if she kicks the back of your seat in the car (yup) I'm going to say something.
