I know what you mean Melissa. I was a part of iVillage years ago. But there was some upheaval and changes made which caused me to take off. But when I suffered a miscarriage, I came back in search of support. After a few stops along the way, I found the Christian Sisters trio of boards. That led me here. :smileyhappy: All these boards have really blessed me a lot. That is why I wanted to host one of them.

Dinner on the patio sounds so nice and relaxing.

I think it is great when a Dr is so thorough. Our Dr being so thorough is what caught my fil's leukemia in it's early stages.

Oh, I could speak cosmetic and blow your mind then lol. I used to be an Avon rep and did a lot of their training online. I am not good at crafts however.

As soon as things settle down here I need to google hair loss in women.  Apparently it is something that runs in my mom's family.  I had a bit of loss last year and had my thyroid checked.  That came back fine. Now again this week I am losing tons of hair.  I try not to be a vain woman, but I am very particular about my hair.  I've always been so happy that I had thick hair, and now it is not nearly as thick as it once was.  Makes me a little sad.  :smileysad:

I was an Avon Rep at one time! They didn't have all the online training then.  So sorry to hear about your hair loss. In my family we have thin hair and with the thyroid issues I have been losing a lot too and am afraid to continue to do so.

Cindy - hormonal changes, vitamin deficiency and stress can all be causes for hair loss. It can also be hereditary just like in men.

Ok girls - you better sit down for this update!!!! Sorry so long but I need to vent to someone.

Saturday after cleaning my own house (kitchen, baths, dusting, vacuum) - went to the rental house at 2pm. DH and another guy who works with DH painted the 2 bedrooms (this is not the first time they have done this). I wiped down the windows and baseboards for those rooms. My husband's bosses are a married couple that own 3 local car washes and they own this rental property (DH manages the car washes for them and does almost all of the handyman work for this property for them). The man boss was there and started to vacuum the one room, he then started cleaning the kitchen. He asked me to go ahead and do my normal cleaning (the 2 full baths, vacuum the entire house with 2 full staircases, the living room, 2 large halls and dust.  We also wiped out all of the windows, dusted all baseboards, wiped down all of the doors and those going to the 6 bedrooms.  Left at 6pm - picked up dinner on the way home.

Sunday morning (DH 50th birthday) - was cooking breakfast (8am) when DH looks at his cell and realizes one of his brothers called him at 10pm the night before. MIL called ambulance to take her to ER with heart and blood pressure issues.  I think this is the 4th or 5th time since May. DH decides after breakfast that he wants to drive to NC (3 hours away) to visit and asks me if I wanted to go. I said not really since I am still hurting and I really need to work on getting rid of ALL this clutter in my house since I was given a deadline of end of summer break or else DH would be helping to make the house more of a hoarder/storage place. He was not happy with my response so I asked if he wanted me to go with him - and he said yes please. So I got ready and we left around 9:30am - did not get home until almost 10pm. 

Today (Monday) - DH asked if we could go to Target (he has Monday's off). I had to go pick up a prescription at the dr's office for my sister and drop it off at pharmacy, drop off Avon books, pick up bus keys and then pick up the bus since school starts next Tuesday (the shop is closed Friday and Monday). Asked DH if he could take me to get bus and he said yes and we could also go to lunch at CiCi's. So I leave around 9am to go run my couple of errands and get the bus keys. Prescription pick up at dr's caused ALL sorts of issues - could not drop at pharmacy and pick up at different location, can not have refills and so dr had written 2 so that BIL has 2 months worth yet dr forgot to sign the 2nd one. Called my dad and asked if he wanted to go to lunch since it was his birthday. Got home at 11am to pick up DH. He wanted to eat first which was good since I had just called dad to meet us. Told DH about Dad coming once we got to CiCi's. Went to Target after and all was good - got home around 2:30pm and UPS delivered my AVON order.  At 3pm I went to drop script at pharmacy for sis (45 minutes and 35 miles one way) and took the recyclables to the dump since they are closed on wed and thurs. Got back home around 4:30pm. DH must have had some kind of blow up while I was gone because he was in a mood. I now have over 300 VHS tapes/cases sitting in the middle of my den floor and was told that I did not need to fix dinner and don't worry about cleaning/straightening/getting rid of any of the clutter and "stuff" in the house ever since he knows it will never get done and he is just going to turn it into a hoarder/storage house.  AAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

I have been struggling so bad with all this over the past year.  He gets all out of shape everytime I do anything for my family and every other week when my AVON orders arrive.  It is just driving me nuts.  Sorry to heap all of this bad news on you guys but it does help to get it out.  

GREAT....now I am getting a migraine.  Just what I need.
