Back study was DENIED.
We knew he had slight scoloisis, like I do, but the Xrays indicate close to a 20% curvature. They are worried because he has at least another 4 inches that it "could" be a problem.
They referred him to his primary who will refer him to an ortho I'm assuming.
He'll probably/hopefully end up like me who ended up with xrays until he's done growing.
Bummer is...NO treatment to help with the stretching.
Good news, they included the xrays to bring with to the doctor since our insurance doesn't cover xrays at all:smileysad:
Always something isn't it??

Oh crap. I have scoliosis, but it hasn't been a problem. Well, at least you got xrays?

...GOOOOD Friday morning, ladies?!?!?

...how's the week been treating you?

...what's your weekend looking like?

...ours is full...really full?

...home football game tonight?

...Natalie's playing in the pep band?

...tomorrow both girls have xc meets?

...NO events on the calendar for Sunday?


...could use a breather?

...weather is supposed to be cooler for the meets on Saturday?

...the times are staggered so we'll be able to both without splitting up?

...however, with one at 9 and one at 4, in opposite directions...it will eat up the entire day?

...I'm so worried about Mariah?

...her work load this year is INSANE?!?!?

...I keep telling myself she'll settle in to a routine, but holy crow??!?!

...up past 11 every night doing homework?

...she had the XC pasta dinner last night, got home, worked on homework until after 11, and had BEFORE school practice?

...so she was up by 5:30?

...she asked me to make her a coffee on her way out the door?

...I hate that she needs it, but I did it for her anyway?

...Gerad's a little annoyed by the coach putting before school practices on Friday's, after pasta dinners?

...plus, now it means they're running in the dark, and he doesn't like that for safety reasons?

...they do it because of the football games, but you know what?

...practice gets out at 5, games don't start until 7, sure band kids have to be there by 6:30, but I think it's doable?

...Gerad is NEVER one to question the coach, but he's itching to email him?

...I'm thinking once he realizes how DARK it is when his kids are out running, he'll call off before school practices?

...Fresh/Soph years they only had before school practices the first week or two of school, then they went to all after school?

...so we'll see if he calls it off after today?

...I mean, the coaches ride their bikes with the kids, but there are 60+ kids on the team, there's no way they can monitor all of them?

...and they don't run at the school, they run out 2-3 miles and run back, so I have to worry about them being hit by a car in the dark too?

...NONE of the kids wear, or even have reflective wear?!

...ok, I'll stop complaining?  :smileywink:

...hoping this is the last AM practice though?

...and hoping Mariah can get a grip on her school work?

...she said the saying is this, "Welcome to Junior year.  1.  Good grades?  2.  Social life?  3.  Sleep?  Pick two?


...so far, that's right?

...ok gotta get crackin'?

...got up waaaay too early this am, thought I could knock out some editing?

...no such luck?

...been farting around on the net all morning?

...hopefully I'll have a productive morning after I drop Owen off?

...happy TGIF ladies??

I had to take notes on paper so I remembered what I wanted to say since I'm on my phone and not on my laptop. I need to get internet installation set up!

I'm sitting here while Layla is in the tub. Regina has to work tonight and tomorrow at 7:00.

Missi, I don't think the kids should have practice in the dark mornings either! Not safe! I don't see any reason that it would conflict with football.

Reading Mariah's dating story...I'm not ready for Rhiannon to start dating but I'm looking forward to her having a "normal" hs experience; like you know, not having a baby her sophomore year.

Christol, sorry Max didn't get a back study but at least you got the xrays.

Lauri, I'm glad you guys had such a nice summer. I hope the boys had a good first week of school.

So cool you're getting your realtor's license!

So crazy about that murder and so strange your ILs didn't call you!

Karol, Regina and Layla are doing well I guess. I haven't been back over to their house since they moved in.

One thing I know, Layla doesn't get bathed enough. I used to get on Regina about doing it more when they still lived here. She's so lazy!

Layla is doing well at daycare from what Regina says.

Regina has classes everyday. I hope she learns how to manage her time.

Her one roomate, Annabeth, who is also her bff, is already getting on her nerves. AB is nice and I know she really cares about R and L but she is a bugaboo type person, very in your face.

Shelly is the cutest little cheerleader! :smileyhappy:

Okay, I'll be back. Gotta get the munchkin out of the tub.

...Lauri, I was wondering how many hours your RE course is? 

...Missi, I completely agree about running in the dark..not cool?  I hope the coach changes the schedule?

...Karol, how was Shelly's cheering this weekend?

...Carmen, been crossing my fingers things go well for Regina and that Layla adjusts?

...bet it was nice spending time with Grandma this weekend:smileyhappy:

...My weekend was a whirlwind? 

...Claire had try-outs and had to grab her at 7?  Ran to Target for a few last minute things?  Made the white sauce and started the cookies for Max's party?

...Max had 3 guys spend the night after the football game Friday night?  Picked them up at 10:30 and they opted to eat at McDonalds instead of ordering pizza?

...finished the cookies and climbed into bed around 12:30?

...Up at 9:15 to get Claire ready and to try-outs?

...came home and made waffles, eggs and bacon for the sleeping boys?

...ordered pizza to arrive for the noon party?

...party from 12-3?

...cooked from 3-7 for Annie's party in addition to helping set up the yard and string all the lights?  Alanna was my sous chef and helped by doing dishes as I finished with a pan which was a HUGE help?

...I ended up making what would come out to 3 pans of lasagna, Parmarosa shrimp pasta, Italian Chicken pasta and vegi pasta?  Caesar salad, caprese salad and garlic bread rounded out the menu?

...The Evening In Tuscany SURPRISE at 7:20 was a success?  She was completely surprised?  I picked that theme because she wanted to go to Italy for her 40th?   Last guests left at 2:15?

...Up at 9 to clean up?  Grabbed Claire from Tina's, had to break the news she didn't make it and watch the slow tears fall from her eyes?  That was HORRIBLE? I explained that she was essentially trying out for a HS team as a 7th grader and they thought that next year she'd make it with no problem?  I wonder a little bit if her age did come into play? 

...picked up pie, had lunch and stopped at Target again for lunch stuff?

...laundry, more house cleaning, Orange Chicken dinner at 6, more cleaning and I'm ready to hit the WALL?

...BUT both Max and Annie had a fabulous birthday?

...I surprised Max with the bike he wanted?

...Dylan/Tina paid $150 towards it because of Dylan's accident with Max's original bike?

...I was a little disappointed with Craig because he didn't stay for dinner tonight?  He left at 5:45, WTH??

...Max's highlight of the weekend though was Dylan texting this morning and telling him Happy Birthday and saying that he was sorry to miss the day with him?

...so that's it?  I need to be studying but I thnk my pillow needs my head more:smileywink:

...Hope your week starts out fantastic?!?

Christol, I'm officially exhausted by your weekend. It sounds fun though.

I'm glad Max enjoyed his birthday! And Annie too.

Even though your description of your weeked tired me out, I'm slightly jealous you always have social things to do.

I feel like I don't really have any friends here to"hang out" with.

Layla is here again. Haha! Regina has class on Monday nights.

Rhiannon had a scrimmage today. I didn't realize parents could go so I didn't. If you didn't see on Facebook, she made the A team. :smileyhappy: I'm so proud of her!

I had to pick up Joey from my mom's anyway. She let him stay home because his throat and head hurt. Ugh. He doesn't pull that crap with me.

I'm going to start giving him allergy medicine and see how that goes.

So I originally thought Rhiannon only had games on Thursdays which is when Joey's games are. Rhiannon has games on Tuesdays though also. I'm so glad. So I can go to her games on Tuesdays. And I won't have to miss any of Joey's games because he can't handle it.

Joey did well in his first ever soccer game last week. He's just not naturally athletic like Rhiannon is. He's just kind of awkward right now. It makes me kind of sad. I hope he grows into his body better. I'd love for him to just keep improving at soccer. He is doing well though. :smileyhappy: Ack! I just feel so much more protective of him than I have of the girls.

I'm ready for bed! Haha!

I'm so glad my summer work schedule is over! We were working so much due to student apartment turnovers.

I've started my sorority house again. And I have several residential homes now. I like my schedule pretty much.

I'm making more money and that's great. But this isn't a forever job so I'm still looking for something else.

Alrighty, Layla wants to eat. Hope everyone had a nice Monday. :smileyhappy:

DYK I thought I'd pop in to say hi?

We are crazy busy?

Cole and Noah both had their first games this past Saturday, both at  10 am, different locations?

The plan was for Frank to coach Cole and me to cheer for Noah?

That plan was revised when I went to leave the house and had not one, but TWO flat tires?

Frank was being calm and saying, "Just let me think"?

I said, "I've got this" and called my IRL Christol, lol, aka Carrie?

She has a boy playing the game before Cole and one on Noah's team?

She agreed to take me from Cole's game to Noah's?

Her sons game went down to the wire so she stayed as long as she could.  We made it to the jr high game by half time?

Noah won, Cole lost?

I missed seeing Cole score the extra point?  :smileysad:

I was pms'ing and, yes, I shed a few tears?

Cole plays Wednesday and Noah Thursday so we will both get to see both boys play this week?

Carmen, did you enjoy your Layla time?

Missi, I'm sure Mariah will be fine once she settles into a routine?

Helen, how has Eloise adjusted to not dancing with the witches?

Christol, what class you taking this semester?

Lauri, congrats on getting your RE license?

Karol, LOVED the cheer pics of Shelly?

I'll try to find some more time to post?

I barely have time to read anymore?

Have a great week?

...can I just say that?


...Christol, your weekend sounded insane?!?!

...have you recovered?

...sounds a BIT like our weekend coming up?

...Saturday is this:  2 XC meets, one football game, one back handspring clinic, and still finding time for hair, nails, etc for Homecoming?

...Thursday is anothe crazy day for me?

...shoot in the am, have to cook the equivalent of 4 meals for the pasta dinner in the afternoon?

...tonight Mariah takes the compass test for her college courses?

...she had an epiphany last night after yet another missed assignment?

...she's pulling it together?

...she can do this, she just has to DROP everything that doesn't count, right now?

...no tv, no internet, no social until the work is done?

...I think we'll hit a groove after Homecoming?

...and another gear will come when XC is over?

...I've never wished XC to be over but yowza, I'm thinking she needs the break?

...so glad she doesn't have a job!!?

...Nat seems to be adjusting very well to 7th grade?

...that's the thing about my two...Mariah is KNOWN for having it all together, Natalie appears to be more of a screw off, but in reality, Nat has her stuff together, she just makes it seem easy?

...her gymnastics are progressing rather quickly, so that's exciting too?

...some extended family stuff is hitting the fan, and it's making my tummy hurt?

...nothing I can talk about, out of respect for the family, but my kids keep saying, "Mom, are you crying, or is that your allergies?"

...thinking about replying, "Stinkin' allergies!"?

... :smileyhappy:

...there is a cloud over our board, isn't it?

...what the heck?

...I think it's the transition/stress of the time of year, don't you?



...well, I'd best go make sure everyone is up?

...today is my catch up day?

...because it's crazy for the rest of the week?!?!

...happy Tuesday, ladies??
