Re: *Wednesday Sept 8.10**

Thanks ladies for all the gl. It's going well so far! I feel a bit more relaxed too! We just got done with homeschooling and we read Dumbo afterward, but they're all laying down watching Max & Ruby. Normally there's always someone up and about, but everyone is chilling right now. It's nice!

Korin-- people stole your trash can?! Seriously?! I would be so mad!! lol We're such opposites though! I would prefer to shop online! I hate shopping at the mall or stores! It takes too much energy when I'm pregnant!

Sleep last night was stinky. Finally started to fall asleep around 3:30 and then DD fell out of her bed, hehe. Then in she came at 7 giving me her stuffed animals. So I'm tired. Our friends should get here sometime tomorrow afternoon and DH will be home late tomorrow night. So today is one more load of laundry (maybe two) and more cleaning, mainly bathrooms and floors. And then prolly a nap while she's sleeping this afternoon. Poor DH only got 2.5 hours of sleep last night and it sounds like today and tomorrow are going to be just as busy and stressful for him so I have a feeling when he gets home, he's gonna crash like crazy. I really hope he gets some time off and they don't make him go into work on friday, I'd be ticked.
Hope all you ladies have a good day!
Well, we do go on walks, but only if it's cool and nice and yesterday was hot and humid. HE's also a video game nut, but even that's been put on the back burner.
YAY for tomorrow night!!!! FX he doesn't have to work.

This morning I thought it was going to be rough too. DS woke up at 6:40am and decided it was time to through a fit. Luckily dh calmed him down for me b/c I was about to have a panic attack remembering yesterday and starting the day off the same way! I was able to sleep for 10 more minutes before the kids woke me up again I had them stay in their room until 8 though. I *need* time to wake up by myself before people start demanding things of me.

I decided to take the garbage out to the road and throw the frisbee for the dog for about 10 minutes and just being outside where I couldn't hear them fight really helped calm me down a lot. I came back in and got them up and we've had a decent morning so far. We put away the dishes (they love to help with the silverware and plastic bowls), ate breakfast, did the dishes, cleaned out the garbage can (I've been dreading that for a while). Now I'm about to do some homeschooling I think.

Wish me luck!

ETA: Oh! And wish me luck on this too....I'm not yelling today. Not once. I find with 3 kids, sometimes the only way for me to even be heard is to raise my voice and I'm ~tired~ of it. It stresses me out and doesn't do ANY good. If they can't listen to me when I'm talking then they will just get in trouble, but I refuse to yell today.
Isn't nice when they want to help and then actually DO help!!? Hope the non-yelling goes the way you want all day!!!! 3 kids.........I doubt I could do it.

not with racing, but other stuff....we do the same things! I learned how to play his favorite card games, and he will chill and watch a movie with me (he hates movies, i love them....i like cards, just not his have-to-be-a-brainiac-to-remember-all-the-rules games) we also spend time walking around a park or going to local free attractions (think museums, riverwalks, etc) We also got into the same tv show (chuck) so that is entertaining because we talk about it afterwards. oh, and i have also learned teh rules of football, and even know some of the player's names we also play a lot of 2 player games after teh kids go to bed....Stratego, Penta, Chess, Aggravation, Phase 10, and Sequence. thats my favorite way to pass an evening, although i do like movies now and then when we just cuddle up and watch together!

Kealii~ Yay for dh coming home, and BOO! For no sleep..I hear ya'!!


as for me~~ i was planning on cleaning, cleaning, cleaning today, and hopefully get some baby stuff out....but, DH and I DTD last night...and i had contractions the rest of the night, so it looks like another lazy day for me today so that i don't set them off again!
the boys are being AWESOME this morning (granted, Dinasour Train is on, but still.....)

The boys had their well baby check ups yesterday, and here's the stats: CHristopher (3 yr) is 90th % for height (he grew 2.5 inches since JUNE!!) and 50% for weight
Patrick (18 months) is 90% for height, and 18% for weight!

The height cracks dh and i up, seeing as I'm 5'4, and he is 5'8!! but, his family are all a bunch of beanpoles, and looks like our boys are going to follow suit!
Christopher has reflux disease, so we are officially starting him on Prevacid...hoping it keeps the throwing up at bay...right now, he pukes about 3 times a week unless he is growing, and then it is every day

Patrick has quit eating, but, he is somehow growing so, dr isn't worried, so neither am I !

BUT>>>UGH vaccines again....what a mess to sort through what to do with those!!!! I'm going ot do some research on MMR, and then I'll post a new thread for opinions on our ddc...i would like your ladies' input, but i want some datat to back what dr. told me first. its hard, 'cause my family is all for vaccines. I'm all for SOME, but not ALL!!!


k, i'm going to go tackle dishes....have a great day all, and i'm sure i'll be back later!!
I thought about trying to get in on their game-it will be played at our house every monday, but the thought of having to put that kind of energy and thought into a stupid game seems like a waste of time. I do like strategy games, but the one we have is 3 player. We do like all the same shows on TV, but sometimes I don't want the TV on all the time, but that's how he was raised. I ate at the dinner table, he ate on the sofa.....so guess where we eat? The sofa, but sometimes Bray and I will eat by ourselves at the table, which stinks.

You have some tall kids!!!! Hope the prevacid works like a charm!! GL with tha vax stuff and dishes!!!! I just finished mine.

Just some ideas...

Heather- Good luck on the not yelling. Sometimes it seems so much easier but in the end it really is ineffective and I end up stressed and overwhelmed and the kids probably just think I am a crazy loon!

Kealii- I hope you get some rest today.

AFM: Actually slept well last night although I could have used many many more hours! I think the kids are coming down with something as DS is extra emotional today and DD seems a bit off. I know I am not feeling quite up to par.
I am super excited as tonight I am surprising DD with a special date, I am taking her to see Disney Princesses on Ice... she is going to be so excited! She has no idea! I just hope that I can convince the people there to let me switch my seat... I thought I would be out of a cast by now and I really cannot be walking up tons of stairs, so I hope they will have extra sympathy on me! Maybe I will just wear a really tight shirt and stick out the belly and bring the crutches

Have a great day ladies.
I'd love it if he read to me, but I think he's too self conscious about that. I may have to do some internet research..........
I'm like you, slept okay, but could use several more hours. And what a great night you have planned!!! Good plan on the shirt and crutches!!!

Kellie - Yay for the browser letting this one through. That's gotta make you happy!! *woot woot*

Cecili- My dh loves his computer/video games but I find his biggest obsession is watching movies. Usually in the afternoons once we've had lunch on the weekends he heads to the basement to watch...regardless of what I'm dealing with upstairs, or what needs done. So I get your frustration sometimes. However, for my situation its a bit different with him being home and I feel kinda guilty sometimes if I nag about that when he only gets to be home 2 days a week.

Kealii - Good luck with the cleaning. I'm excited for you that DH is coming home

Heather - sending good day vibes your way. Sounds like you're gonna need em.

I'm trying to stay away from the computer a bit today and get some stuff inside done. Tackling DD'S room where she's trashed it with clothes and stuff everywhere. To see the floor is my mission for the day! i still need to take a pic of it for you all to see for arranging ideas when I add DS and all his stuff into the mix. I think I've figured out the closet arranging but I'm excited to see what everyone else suggests. And I'm waiting for some fluffy mail that didn't come yesterday. I'm stalking my mailbox. Hahaha.
It's almost nap time for the kids...so that excites me and my reward for cleaning is having one with them! Fingers crossed that everyone sleeps.
You DH might have an excuse for one afternoon of movie watching, but he still needs to spend tons of time with the kids and you on those 2 days. I'd be nagging, but I'm good at that! Hoping everyone naps!!!

didnt sleep so well, felt totally uncomfortable all night, the baby was laying transverse and kicking my ribs and hip bones all night, and what felt like my ovaries or kidneys.. some organ was getting a beating.
work was lame last night, but it was nice to have a slow night with all the business we have had.
I want to go shopping today, since i didnt yesterday. I need something.. and online shopping the other day obviously didnt fill that void! lol
dh works again today (will be working insaine hours for the remainder of the month) but hopefully he can be home for dinner.. I would love to make some spaghetti! ive been craving it lately.. that and tacos.
atleast ds has been a good boy this morning, he crawled in bed with me at 7am, and fell back asleep until 9:30, he hasnt been demanding at all .. which im so thankful for.. and right now hes watching jungle junction and chillin. what a good boy!

Kealii- YAY one more day til you see your dh!!
Heather- hang in there mama sounds like you have quite the full house of kiddos.. take a breather.. and i know how you feel. Im tired of yelling at ds.. seems like he wants me to yell at him sometimes!!
cecili- my dh is just obsessed with playing Call of Duty on xbox. but luckily, his xbox had to be sent out to be fixed because it had redring.. so it will be out of comission for a few weeks!
dh is big on helping me clean and stuff lately.. so when we have both been home we do that, or mow the lawn together.. and the other night we took a bath together.. that was relaxing!
Katie- ugh.. well check ups.. i swear those drs come up with vaccines out of their butt sometimes! definately do your research before they pump your kids with them! but seems like your boys are getting big! relax today mama, cleaning can always wait.. and baby needs to cook!
Kellie- YAY for a new browser
Thiele- have fun with your dd, that sounds like a nice mother daughter date! im jealous!
Alisha - have fun cleaning! lol.. im an orginizational freak. i love to have things all have their own place! i think i have a bit of ocd
Mine has been laying transverse and it really IS uncomfortable!!!! I feel ya. for the trashcan issue. i love the red ring of death, but unfortunately, the stupid Xbox isn't the issue this time.

WOW. Sounds like heaven at your house today!!! Hope it stays that way.

My you guys were chatty while I was away. Probably more posts while I did this one.

I thought there would be puddles out since it's been rainy, but there were none.....maybe later or tomorrow. Bray had his boots on and looked so freaking cute. It was nice to go on a leisurely walk with him. I find walking to be getting more difficult as I am getting more uncomfortable, which stinks because my fat a** needs it.
Anyone else love their husband dearly, but thinks that maybe they aren't the soulmate you once thought they were?? Like maybe there is someone out there that IS the perfect compliment?? I hate feeling that way, but it's the truth. Man I wish I could go to counseling more that 2X a month....i really need it, but can't afford it. Booo

Re: *Wednesday Sept 8.10**

cecili! Does he feel the same way? there are some great books out there that are for married couples....Focus on the Family by Dr. James Dodson (spelling) i have heard are EXCELLENT! we have not read them ourselves, though....maybe you can both read a book series for time together, and strengthen your marriage also! There is also a group called Marriage Encounter that my parents went to...it really helped them out!

Nope, no way. He doesn't do workshops or counseling on marriage. He won't read a book about it either. I was thinking that we both enjoy fantasy books.

I wish...I bet we wouldn't have the problems we have if he was remotely interested in our marriage.

have you expressed to him that you odn't feel that he is interested in the bond you two have together? does he have an answer? I don't have any answers for you...i just know when dh and i are feeling "apart" (ok, ok, when i feel we are growing in different directions) we make another effort to go on dates, leave love notes in lunch boxes, and write messages on mirrors (crayola bath crayons are AWESOME at writing on mirrors!!)

Have you ever heard of SPICE? its an acronym that is used to help especially when planning a date night. Your marriage needs to have SPICE all the time to thrive....

Spiritual ~ prayering together (going to church together, prayers at bedtime, before meals.
Physical ~NOT always DTD, but holding hands, back rubs, etc...
Intellectual~TALKING if we cant find things to talk about, i read a passage from "sex, love and marriage by Christopher West"..always something to talk about after that!
Creativity~ leaving messages, planning a special date night where you plan everything for what HE wants, and vice versa
Emotional~ being interested in each other's day..learning what he does at work, so he can talk about it, Roger knowing that when i say "yeah, i'm fine" doesn't always mean that I really am.

This might sound hokey, but if you can get him to sit down for a heart to heart, tell him how you feel, and tell him you would like to try a few of these things, it MIGHT help a little? you write them down and put them on the fridge. the letters are supposed to be arranged on a wheel (like a pie chart) with each section equal to remind you that each part is as important as the next...not one should be too large, or too small.

just an idea....you can throw it out the window, or laugh if you want....you won't hurt my feelings. It just what Roger and I do.

Re: *Wednesday Sept 8.10**

Heather - glad your day is going well! so happy to hear that, especially after a rough start!
Katie - 2.5 inches in like 3 months?? that's nuts! Hope you can get the vax stuff figured out!
Thiele - have fun on the date with your DD, sounds really sweet.
Alisha - FX for fluffy mail! GL with cleaning too!! DD just went down for a nap, so now I'm on here trying to decide if I should clean now, or take a nap and try to recoup my losses from last night's 3 hours of sleep... hehe, not quite sure which to choose!
Korin - Stole your trash can?? that's just weird... I had to laugh, one of the games my DH likes is Call of Duty too, but I like it too and the funny thing is, he'd MUCH rather play with me than online with friends even, the only times he plays games solo on xbox is when I want to knit, and then I'm still sitting by him anyway. I've even recruited a couple of other wives of DHs friends to play, so we'll have game nights with friends where that's what we do, guys and gals all playing a war game. I know... I'm weird but hey, I've started to get pretty good and nothing's much more fun than killing your soldier husband in a war game every once in a while!!
Cecili - There's a DVD series called Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage by Mark Gungor that's absolutely hysterical, and very good material too, but it doesn't feel like torture to sit and watch it kwim? We use it for our marriage retreats with the army and have yet to have anyone say anything negative, and we've had well over 60 couples in our unit alone who have seen it, not to mention the other units that I know that have used it, it's always well-received, with people laughing like crazy... might be something that would be more palatable to him? I don't know, I can't get mine to read either, so I just do it, at least it helps my attitude, lol There's also the Love Dare, that's pretty much one-sided so you read it and it has ways to treat your husband to eventually affect a response out of him. The movie Fireproof is based off of it, good movie too. I know it can be rough sometimes!

I've tried telling him, but he just blows me off like I'm whining or being hormonal. It's the exact way his father treated his mother in the beginning of their marriage, too. Of course, their marriage is hunky dory now. I'll try your SPICE thing, but he doesn't go to church with me and hasn't really gone since he moved out of his parents house. That's the only thing I see being a problem. Thanks for the advice, though.....it's something I need.

I'll look that DVD series up. Maybe I can get his parent's on board to watch Bray so we can watch that............
We've seen the Love Dare movie and I checked the book out, but it lacked soemthing for me, not sure what.

I know money is tight, but if I can fine another strategy board game that is perfect for two players, maybe I can get him to splurge so we have something Different to do!! Things were going great this weekend with DTD 3X, but then they just fizzled.

I'll keep working on it.........as usual.


So I got a call about my appt tomorrow. She gave me an est. total of $240 for the office consult and said insurance covers the U/S, but I told her I hadn't met my deductible yet so It maybe more more like $450. UGH. Look!!! More medical bills. And our pics are next wednesday and that's $200. I swear he's deivorce me if it weren't for the child support.

Thankfully we can get on a payment plan!!

Christina!!!! I'm glad you made there and back safe!!! sorry the kiddos got sick, but only 13 more days and you're a family again!!!!

Re: *Wednesday Sept 8.10**

OK I'm back. I just read through all the chat threads and can't remember anything I wanted to say Suffice it to say, I've missed you all but at the same time I had a great time with my DH. Which only made leaving him there that much harder. I cried for the first 10-15 minutes after I dropped him off at his barracks and he told me later that he wanted to run after the car. I can't wait for him to be home. I just hope he doesn't come home just to be immediately deployed. FX that the person who met with him a couple weeks ago and told him that he would only be at ft stewart for a few weeks before getting sent to CA for 2 months of training then getting deployed is able to do what he said he'd try to do (put dh in a batallion that isn't scheduled to deploy immediately).

Kealii, I'm so glad your DH is coming home tomorrow. I know you can't wait. Maybe your dd will be asleep by the time he gets home so you can spend a little time just the 2 of you.

As far as non DTD stuff dh and I do together, I think most of our stuff has already been said. We watch movies when the kids are in bed, sometimes dh finds some music we both like and we dance to it (not that either of us actually know HOW to dance, but we dance together anyways), we give each other backrubs, wash each other in the shower. Sometimes we just sit and talk. We did very little of that during our 4 day weekend, though. The girls took a nap every day and dh and I had that time for together time and after they were asleep we stayed up for hours. . . but we just spent that time catching up on DTD And I was SOOOOO sore. I tried the witch hazel pads. IDK if they helped or not. After 6 weeks w/o dtd and looking ahead to 2 more weeks w/o, there was NO WAY I was letting something like soreness stop us LOL.

It was a GREAT couple of days. We took the kids swimming, to LOL (OK's Chucky Cheese), putput golf, and bowling. We all had a blast and it was nice and relaxing. The driving on the other hand, not so much. On the way there, we got lost in Dallas, TX during rushour traffic, in the middle of a thunderstorm with cruddy windshield wipers. . . On the way back, Addy started barfing, Evie (my PLed 3 yo) pooped her pants and they were soaked with diarrhea from bum to cuffs. I had to give her a shower in one of those trucker showers LOL. Then I killed my battery while trying to take a nap (running AC w/o the car being on is a bad idea) and had to get jumped off.

Addy barfed the whole way home then started coughing. Last night we got home at midnight and she's been having nosebleeds all day. My gma told her to lay on her back when she had one so tons of blood drained into her stomach, so she's been barfing that all day (part of it is on my carpet ). She hasn't eaten anything worth mentioning in the past 2 days. I'm hoping she will be better soon. I hate seeing her just sit there quietly with that sick look on her face

Other than dealing with sickies, I've been making a grocery list and doing laundry all day. I haven't knit in over a week, so I'm sure I'll pick that back up tomorrow.

I hope everyone had a great week.

Re: *Wednesday Sept 8.10**

Christina - welcome back!! Been waiting to hear how your weekend went and I'm so glad it went well. SS for the sick kiddos though... praying that they get better soon! Thankful it didn't happen until you were on your way home and not to hamper your weekend. Also praying that your DH doesn't get put in a unit that's deploying! As for my DH coming home, we have a buddy of his and his new wife coming to visit, and they're gonna be here a few hours before DH does, LOL. Luckily, these people are VERY easy houseguests, so I'm not too concerned, though the timing does suck a little, hehe. It's only been 3.5 weeks... that's not TOO long for only 2 more weeks for you!!!!!!
