The kids get a ton of candy just from that. After school we go trick or treating around town, and because there are only 20 kids in town, everyone is very generous with the candy. We are also going to a gold mine just outside of town to go trick or treating (they are also doing some fire safety and mine safety while we are there). Last year we got over 20 lbs of candy between my two girls. I usually dig through it, throw anything with gelatin away, keep the good stuff for me, and the girls will get a piece or two a day until they forget about it.
Your town sounds like our town! Except yours is a bit bigger All the kids who go to school here come here for t&ting - we end up with about 40 kids running around. I love it though, because there's no vehicle traffic that night - out-of-towners drive in around suppertime to sit at town houses and hand out their candy, then they don't leave town till after 10pm. Makes for so much less worries with the kids.

But, I decided to look for a different costume and I found a horse! So I bought it for Kai, because who wears a horse costume?! It's hilarious!" This kid cracks me up - and he's only 6. Later in the day he called him "Angrykin Kaiwalker" when he was throwing a little fit over not getting more cookies. Then he looked at me and said "get it? Instead of Anakin Skywalker?! Cuz he's being angry! And his name is Kai! Hahahahaha"
What a great kid!

Oooo! I need... well, okay fine, I want... to find a good pair of fall boots. Maybe I'll get a chance to look this weekend.

AFM: Today is a nothing day - thank goodness! This weekend will be super busy - FIL will be here tomorrow so we'll be unpacking the van, I need to run around and pick up some Subs, donuts, and coffee for the guys helping us. Then Sunday will (likely) be church and going to in-laws house to help unpack boxes and whatnot. Then Monday is Thanksgiving - not sure what we're doing, but I know MIL wanted to do something.

While I know I can have small amts of tuna, I'd rather not take the chance, it can have a lot of mercury. But I just really hate any fish that is cooked, and even though I think raw is safe in small amts my family pretty much won't let me, lol.

Re: Chat Thread ~ Sept 30th-Oct 6th

Thought I would drop in tio say HI!
Pretty busy here and I just don't get a chance to check in much. We have had a party booked every weekend for a few weeks. Got one tomorrow too. Good for the money, bad for a tired momma! LOL
My next MW appt is next thurday the 11th and I cannot wait! I will be 14 weeks and will have another US to see if the SCH is gone. Wish we could see what the sex is but I bet it will be too early. I have still been sick, but not as bad as it was. Getting more and more excited about the baby and can't wait to start planning and making stufff for him or her.

As for Halloween, I always dressed up as a kid but I am not as fond of it now and it is toooooo much trouble to take this many kids out to TorT since we would have to drive to each house. I am thinking of having some of our homeschool friends over for a bonfire to roast hot dogs and marshmellows and let all the kids paint a pumkin and play games and have fun. That would be so much more fun for us I think.

mmmm... I get sad when I realized I didn't eat my can of tuna that week. Well, not really sad, but I really need to set a reminder and make all Thursdays 'tuna salad' day or something... yummm..

they actually had PSAs out a few years ago encouraging pregnant women to eat a can of tuna a week. Most fish is too expensive for some households and women were scared of tuna, but the baby does need the DHA and fatty acids.

I don't like most fish. Well, I usually like salmon, but this baby does not. Tuna? yumm!

It's official: my second trimester is sucking way more than the first one.

NOT ideal.

Hopefully it'll calm down soon.

I'm sorry. are you just sick/fatigued?


I'm tired allll the time and it doesn't help that poor DH has been having nightmares because of stuff that happened at work (he is a firefighter & EMT) and is waking me up in the middle of the night when I'm already sleeping restlessly and getting up at 2 am to pee. I feel bad for him, but at the same time, I'm selfish and I want to sleep through the night as much as I can NOW! I don't wake HIM up when he has to work the next day and I have a bad dream.

But on a good note, I found the heart beat tonight!!! 145 bpm. It took me a while to get around the placenta but I got it after a couple minutes. So awesome to hear. I can't believe I didn't buy a doppler for DS!

Yay for the heartbeat! I really wanted to, but I didn't. Maybe tomorrow.

I'm just like double nauseated. I barely made it through grocery shopping without puking or eating dinner. My abdominal area is extremely uncomfortable.

I'm hoping things are just moving and once the uterus has moved up or something, maybe this won't suck.

Its not horrible - I can't give the impression that it's so bad when others are on medications. But it was supposed to get better, not worse, with the second trimester

Sorry to hear about your lack of sleep. DH is still hacking the nights away and that wakes me up. In addition to peeing and rolling over, etc. but atleast that'll be over when he gets better. An emergency worker is much more constant.

Luckily he's not volunteer, so he never takes calls at home and I don't have to listen to a radio (thank GOD - my mother does though, haha). It's really only bad when something terrible happens at work and he can't help but carry it home.

A lieutenant at the department was diagnosed two weeks ago with acute lymphoma and has a couple months to live at best. Wife and kid. DH has been responding to medicals for a female soldier who was injured on deployment (middle east). She can't stop having seizures, incontinent, PTSD, etc. Husband and kid(s), not sure how many.

It's really hitting DH hard. He's not a Christian and he's finding himself really struggling with some BIG "why" questions right now, so I know that's a contributor to his unrest.

We're also struggling with some marriage stuff and his insecurities around that are obvious causes of some of the dreams... It's just hard for me to have sympathy at 4 am.
