That is awful about your DH's knee. I hope he is okay. But hey, great news about his quota, even if he hates it. It is at least better than hating it and not doing well.

Alicia, that is a great birthday idea. a few years ago i scheduled a massage and salt scrub on my birthday at a spa. i spaced them out far enough that i had plenty on hanging at the hot sub and sauna time in between. Then i showered and got ready and came home for cake with the family and dinner out with DH. it was a great day. now every year i just want to be alone, but i don't want to hurt their feelings so i end up going with what everybody wants me to do... Do it! you will have a great time.

I broke down and cried at school right as the kids were coming in.  It doesn't help that we have had 2 very bad days with behavior.    One kid tantrumed and tore up some stuff in my room and had to be removed.  Another peed on the door to the bathroom and his mom was a HUGE pita about it, trying to tell me that sometimes he doesn't get to the bathroom on time, no lady your kid did it on purpose!  Another kid hit both the speech therapist and OT.  And soccer started last night and it is going to be no fun. Oh well, this too will pass.

Lauren is 7.5 months old and I still look like I'm at least 5-6 months pregnant. I know I eat junk every now and again and I always overeat but I do lift weights and run 3-4 times a week. I have a decent layer of fat around my midsection but it seems like that is not the cause of the bulge that makes me look pregnant. Does that make sense? It's like the pregnant look is coming from the inside--not the skin on the outside. Is this normal? I don't have loose skin or stretch marks just a firm tummy that looks pregnant. I'm trying not to care too much b/c I'm nursing and I don't want to lose my supply but it's so frustrating when clothes don't fit or when I still look pregnant.

Val, I can't believe Tay is failing and doesn't care. Oh how frustrating!!! I hate that kids have their own wills. Could one of your brothers/father/or his big brother have a talk with him?

I am dreaming/scheming my birthday present already--it's not til July. BUT in July I will most likely no longer be nursing and I am planning a 2-3 night getaway by myself to a hotel to read, watch movies/tv, go for a run, take a shower alone, sleep, eat take out in bed, do whatever I want and not have to think about anyone else for 72 hours. Just me. I think I will even ask my mom to give me the gift of her house cleaner for my birthday. I think the perfect ending to my 'retreat' would be to come home to a clean house.
