Hi ladies. Today I realize once again no matter how stressful and complicated my life is, it could be so much worse. My heart and prayers go out to the CT families

So here is my quick (but long) update.

- DH’s job is still on the never ending roller coaster, but he is making contacts to do consulting on the side for now and can probably build that pretty big. Thankfully his accounting degree and multiple licenses in the financial industry make him pretty valuable.

- My sweet lovable DS9 gave his teacher the middle finger after a huge tantrum in school where he was even trashing his desk around

- DS9’s biopsies now show eosinophilic gastritis, a very rare condition, so we are going for patch allergy testing next week, 2 more days he will miss of school Well I am going to take him for a couple hours before the appts so he can at least get that day’s work. Three endoscopies in a year and a half and each time it shows something new. What’s crazy is we started all this because he said his stomach kept hurting but had no other symptoms and luckily our pediatrician knew he wasn’t the type to make anything up and took it very seriously.

- My mom’s oncologist isn’t happy with her latest round of labs, my dad’s cardiologist isn’t happy with his EKG and put him on a heart monitor for 24 hours, but they wont give me more info than that, so I'll just sit and speculate

- I had to put a call into my surgeon’s ofc today because I seem to be regressing, nurse said it is probably normal since it is a very long healing period but watch over the weekend and if I get worse she’ll get me in first thing on Monday.

i_heart, see you aren’t the only one to complain and vent But even with all of this, it is nothing to compared to those that lost children and loved ones today.

Christine – I hope your iPad arrives soon, but it is fun trying to decipher your posts right now

Miss – I usually give a gift card on top of donating to the class gift, but not everyone does. Have you been taking advantage of the $10GC deal at Target lately? I know you can easily spend $50 in the dollar section

Jen – oh I am so jealous! Have a great day with DH tomorrow, lunch and shopping, perfect

i_heart - how scary about the blow out! Glad you got everyone moved safe and sound! That happened to us once, thankfully just as we had pulled off I95. DS19 blew out 3 tires last year and I wanted to kill him, but that was only after I knew he was okay I know you want to refill the emergency fund, but I think you should keep your resies the way they are.

Debrn - sounds like a great split, hope it stays

Jeanette – sorry your DH is feeling neglected lately. Sometimes men just don’t get it I know you have to work, but I hope you have a good weekend

Janet – I hope you enjoyed your 29th bday Does that mean maybe next year we could celebrate the big 3-0???? Then we can celebrate that one for a few years too

Wookie – OMG, I love your DS’ career goals!!!!!!! It always amazes me what goes through thier little brains

Marie – DOUBLE YAY So glad you are finally getting a partner again! And congrats for taking the plunge and applying for the job. Like you said, you would have probably always wondered.

Hello Ginny, Linda, Candace, Dani, Kook, and everyone else I am missing.

Melissa

Hopefully the 2 weeks will fly by. I hate waiting for test results!!



That's what I keep telling myself



What I did the years that we did a joint teacher gift, I would give the teacher the gift I was planning on getting them at the end of the year. I would usually get them a gift certificate. This way they could use it to buy things to set up their classroom next year.



I read about that on FB this afternoon, and it just breaks my heart. I can not even begin to imagine the pain they are going through.
I would love to hear those comments

Oh my Melissa. You sure have a lot on your plate. I am keeping you in my thoughts. Your poor DS You take care of yourself too. No relapses allowed for the mama! I'm sorry for all the uncertainty with regards to DH's job. And health issues with mom and dad on top off all of it? Wow! You are so right when you said you are on your own rollercoaster.

The New Year is almost upon us. I'm hoping that 2013 brings resolution to all of your worries.

I'm so sorry things are so stressful right now. My mom has always told me that God never gives you more than you could handle. Sometimes I think he must think I have the strength of all the Avengers times infinity. One of my favorite sayings that helps me is "This too shall pass". If that doesn't work there is always, "Candy is dandy, but liqueur is quicker."

When John Michael would say what we call John-isms, my DH would ask me where he got it from. I told him that I used to try and figure it out, but it hurts my brain a lot less to not even try.

I LOVE getting to help people with Disney trips!!!

We have never had a date night at WDW. It really depends on the budget and what they like to eat. We loved Le Cellier on our last trip. If it's in the budget, V&A's would be on the top of my list. Especially if I could swing the Chef's Table.

Ladies, if you can kiss those babes tonight, and thank God for every moment! This tragedy takes my breath away...so very very sad. My heart cries for those families, and the school...community...everyone!

Okay...ahhhh...sorry, love you all!

Agreed. I've had my breath taken away so many times since yesterday. Listening to the stories, seeing those little faces. Knowing I have a baby in kindergarten and I have known all of her little classmates since they were babies. And my gentle, kind 3rd grader, who is excited to go to school everyday....those babies in CT were probably like my babies....

Those parents probably have presents wrapped that will never be opened....dances classes that won't be attended....they could have been planning a trip to Disney...I just.dont.understand. It hurts my heart soooo badly...

I keep trying to make sense of it, but there is no sense to be made about something as ridiculous as this.

What is very sad is the shooter is said to have personality disorder, this is usually not successful with treatment because they have antisocial qualities.These people don''t have the capibility to think rationally, even worse have NO remorse... Many are criminals and wind up in jail. I am not giving him excuses, but our mental health system is so underfunded and so many long term facilities are no more..there's more people like him in mainstream society..I see them a LOT in and out of the ER It is so very very scary. I just wish I could place my kids in a bubble and protect them forever

They are all male Industrial Engineers so no Very Bradley for them

I usually get a separate teacher's gift...

Here's another shopping tip-Kipling has lots of things on sale at their website.You can also use a retailmenot code...RMNOT25 gives you 25.00 off 150.00 plus free shipping.

I am finally a bit caught up. I made a big pot of chili yesterday, and got meatballs done today. I divided, then packaged them up and popped them in the freezer. Having some things done ahead is a big help to me.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend.
YUM!!! I don't know if I know Kipling....hmmmm

Hi Melissa,
Our favorite at WDW is Jiko. The food is amazing, and everyone who works there seems to really love the place. Their wine list is great, too.


On another note, take extra good care of yourself. recovery after surgery isn't easy, especially when you are a busy mom. Sending you hugs.

Hi everyone

Iheartthemouse: yay for the gift cards! I was seriously thinking of a trip down to target to take advantage of this!

Well, as you can see on the discount thread, it appears there may be a discount headed our way for may! I am excited !

I went back and forth last night from crying about those poor children to blocking it out and only thinking Disney thoughts. Seems tacky, I know but I couldn't think about it non stop, too too heartbreaking. I don't know if I can bear seeing any of the faces of the little ones.

I emailed our teachers last night t find out what our schools procedures are during lockdown. DH told me not to, but I just need to get some info. Our school is one of those that you can walk right in, and straight down the hall if you wanted to. The total unpredictability of this tragedy could happen anywhere. It is a scary world our kids are growing up in.

Well, as you can see on the discount thread, it appears there may be a discount headed our way for may! I am excited !

I went back and forth last night from crying about those poor children to blocking it out and only thinking Disney thoughts. Seems tacky, I know but I couldn't think about it non stop, too too heartbreaking. I don't know if I can bear seeing any of the faces of the little ones.

I emailed our teachers last night t find out what our schools procedures are during lockdown. DH told me not to, but I just need to get some info. Our school is one of those that you can walk right in, and straight down the hall if you wanted to. The total unpredictability of this tragedy could happen anywhere. It is a scary world our kids are growing up in.
I guess it doesn't even matter....
Our school is locked and has a buzzer system/video monitoring just like this school had, and the shooter was still able to force himself in. Evil was too strong.

I read a list of all the names, so many babies....it's truly disturbing that this happened.

I am trying to take this as a lesson that I need to cherish my kids every single day. I mean, obviously I love them....but I just need to show them and tell them and enjoy every minute. I hope to never know the horrors that those parents now know, but we can't live in fear or evil wins.

********long sigh********

Yay for possible discount Jen!!

DH just asked me this morning if I think I will upgrade to CL....I think that if I do it, I'm not telling him!
