so sorry...if it makes you feel better my 9yr old DD has failed everyone that they have ever done on her...she can hear just fine...

this is my kids...DS's ears drain if his sinus get backed up (think running nose out your ear thanks to having tubes and many many ear infections as a baby), all the other seem to have a good bit of wax...I just leave it alone and it comes out when they bathe/shower...

DD1 is like this...I say she can hear just fine because she makes it a point to tell you if you are too loud! Not so much anymore but she used to constantly when she was about 6-7 and she would get very upset if anyone raised their voice...she also doesn't like certain amusement park rides...she walks around saying "too fast, too high, too loud"

could you talk to your family about maybe helping you guys come back out that way? Could you or your dh go and get settled and then the other come when everything is just right? I know it isn't ideal but a friend of mine at work's hubby left for CA and she stayed her with their boys...good thing he did because the job he was offered didn't turn out the way it was supposed to be....so he moved back!

So i got a dry erase board today at wal-mart. I am going to hang it above my sink and write out a weekly chore/todo list. This is going to help me stay organized and spend my time where it is needed. . I am excited and hope it will work

Today was a fun chat day on here. . so much fun!!!
I have a dry erase white board in my dining room outside my kitchen doorway...I use it for everything....in fact it still has some fraction math on it from helping my 4th grader with her homework...not to mention a ton of other things....I got a magnetic clip and hung their field trip papers, conference reminders, school lunch menu...etc on it and stuck it on the white board...

Have you tried Blessed Thistle? It's an herb...actually it is one found in Mother's Milk Tea and More Milk Plus so it is definitely safe for breastfeeding...I know this might sound strange but tea (especially the Mother's Milk Tea although I don't make it the way they say to on the box ) has a very calming effect on me...I usually brew 1 reg. tea bag and 1 Mother's Milk tea bag in a travel mug (or tall coffee mug will work) with sugar and a bit of milk....

I have REALLY REALLY bad anxiety....I also have depression which runs deep in my family and the lack of ability to take meds makes it worse for some...my bf is very supportive although not always as understanding...but knowing he is there helps...unfortunately he has his moments as well...it's life...if we had no emotion we wouldn't be human...it's also VERY weather and time change related...lack of sleep plays a part in your mental well being...the thought of the economy...the job market or lack there of...lack of sun and vitamin E...if your body is lacking certain vitamins or protein then your emotions shift...you can tell this around the time you get AF...you start to crave things...for me it is protein...I crave eggs, peanut butter...red meat and I'm NOT a big red meat eater at all....sometimes a change in routine, change in scenery...little things like that help...

well time for me to go not sure when I'll be on tomm. The baby has an early morning appt and I have to go to DS's school to talk to the principal because his teacher is wacked out of her mind again

But they were kind of a PITB to fold down after laundering. I only had five, and that was as many as I would have liked to fold. But during that time I used all five every day.

I haven't used any in a while. I think I could still if I used a doubler, because I'd have to fold it differently and bigger and thus not be as thick. And I have plenty of PFs that do fit well, so it seems pointless to do it. That being said I think EVERYBODY who CDs should have flats. They fit when nothing else doesn't. They don't usually have laundry issues, because they wash so cleanly. You can stuff pockets with them. I still keep one in the car in case the diaper bag runs out or goes AWOL.

I love mine and will use them all the time during the summer...no joke when its line drying weather flats can be dry in as little as an hour....I will definetly be looking at garage sales for more of them....

At our goodwill here...they ask for $1.50 each

Okay I need to get a lot done today.....gonna post my list as it keeps me from mindlessly sitting here all day

go to mcdonalds for breakfast-hubbies treat
pick up a few grocersies at walmart
finsh up the 3 newborns that I started
cut out 4 diaepr order
snap them
sew them
2 pieces of mending (payin job)
cut out covers and more mama pads and family cloth
snap covers
