Hi ladies,

I've been reading every post from my phone but am afraid I don't have time for personals right now as I'm busy getting ready for our big trip. We leave on Thursday and won't be back till the second week of June.

AFM:

Selin had her 15 mo. checkup today (and I still cannot believe she's 15 months old already - how the heck did that happen?) and everything looks great. Her ear infection is completely gone so the ped said we could stop the drops and she had her last dose of the new antibiotic tonight (let's hope she's not allergic, haha). She weighs 21lbs. 4oz (30%tile) and 30-1/2 in. long (50%tile). She's mostly in 18 mo. clothes, although some of her 12 mo. pants still fit her.

No further news on the job front. I bugged my boss again about the FT opportunity and he said they're meeting about it this Thursday, the day we fly out of town of course, and that he should have more concrete info for me then so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he'll call me after the meeting. I'm still applying to schools as well and am trying to keep up hope that I'll find a teaching position and won't have to go back to the corporate world.

I'm becoming a bit addicted to eBay lately. One of my friends told me how she gets awesome deals on clothes for her DS and she is totally right! So far I have bid and won on two pair of new shorts for Selin for $5 including shipping and a new sunhat for Selin for less than $4 with shipping. I also won a bid on what I thought was a full-size LIttle Tikes Cozy Coupe car but when I picked it up from the seller today, I realized it was doll-sized! I felt like such an idiot because the description did say "dollhouse" but I totally didn't get it. I bought it anyway because it was so cute and Selin loves it. Then we stopped by a new Salvation Army store and as soon as we walked in, there was a full-sized Little Tikes car for sale for $8! I took it as a sign, grabbed it and brought it to the register and bought it before someone else did, haha (and Selin absolutely loves pushing herself around in it). I then went back and found three pairs of pants (one of them was from The Childrens Place and still had the tags on!) for less than $4. Yes, I'm a cheapskate and proud of it! DH was jokingly saying tonight that I should start a website about how to buy things for less because I rarely pay full price for anything. I get such a thrill out of a good deal. :-P

Hope everyone is having a great week.

That's great!! (well, not great, but you KWIM) That was my ultimate fear "what if things are so messed up that I need to get it removed?". So if a person can get pregnant easily on just thyroid meds, I'll rest much easier!

I just got the results letter for the screening interview I had a few weeks ago and I did not make the cut. Oh well, at least I didn't have to wonder our whole trip whether or not I passed.

I really hope my boss has some good news for me on Thursday about the FT position. It's getting harder and harder to stay positive about the search. :-(

Hey ladies, I have been reading them all - wanted to say hello, but I don't have time for personals.

We have been crazy busy. between meeting with sub contractors and contractors for our home remodel it's been meeting after meeting. Last week we had an electrican, framer, roofer. We also had someone out to look at the house and asses it for baby proofing. my friends husband does it for a living. so lots of meetings.

Friday gabby came down with a fever and had to bring her home from daycare (see my rant about sick of being sick). we had an appt with the ENT today and the Chiro and rather than write it all over again see my blog post here: http://jessica-mike.blogspot.com/2011/05/doctors.html


We are getting tubes for Gabby and I am calling tomorrow to schedule it. I am going back to our old chiropractor because after today I don't want anything to do with the latest one. Don't need to feel judged by my doctor.

DH and I are doing well, I feel like I am a roommate sometimes, just because we have so much going on. and with not getting a lot of sleep I am tired all the time I hope things change soon.

Christine, I have the same addiction to ebay. I got a box of 18 month clothes for Simon around 50 pieces including a few pairs of shoes for 27 with shipping@ Thats almost better then garage sales.

Christine - Sorry about the position. Fingers crossed for you about the FT job.

Jess - Glad you've made the decision about the tubes, it seems like it will be a good thing in the end. GL with all the remodeling, it's a PITA sometimes.

AFM - Sleep has become a major issue for us the last 1.5 weeks... see details in my blog
http://2eggs-overeasy.blogspot.com/2011/05/that-5-letter-word.html
So today we started sleep training, starting with naps. Our issue isn't that he has a hard time falling asleep, it's an issue of staying asleep. He falls asleep on his own wonderfully, but wakes up so easy and can't fall back to sleep. DH is picking me up a new swaddler to try on him tonight. Fingers crossed this works, he's quickly outgrowing all of his.

Hi ladies,

Just wanted to pop in real quick to say goodbye as we leave for Turkey tonight. Even though I was up until 1am last night, I still have a million things to do today! I'll miss you all and will try to read from my phone when I have internet access.

Adrienne - Did you get the PM I sent you last weekend??

Ash - I know you're flying back to the States today - good luck!!

See you all in about two weeks! :-D

(((HUGS)))
