Hey all,

Kid fun-filled Easter weekend. A friend's 2 yr old b-day party and puppet show on Sat. Easter bunny, church, and Easter egg hunt at grandparents on Sunday. I'm tired, but the girls had fun. At least I am off from school today, a Spring break day. I go back tomorrow. Thursday is my last day in the classroom for student teaching!!! I have been applying like crazy to school districts. Wish me luck.

I am also trying to get stuff together for a yard sale the first weekend in June. My house feels so full of stuff right now with all of the girls' toys and my teaching stuff and our regular junk.

tom is back at work but kiddos won't let me post. We had a wonderful week with him off and a nice easter.

sweets- WFE is getting poor reviews, but I would like it if you could see it and report back. I'm pretty certain now my obsession is with Edward, not Rob. But, my obsession is also wearing down a bit too, which is nice, it was getting out of control.

amers - you don't have to download just for me, but would love to see them. Do it in your "spare" time. :roll:

carter - wishing you LOTS of luck! I think you've probably done such a fab job in the classroom student teaching (just seems how you'd be) that I'm sure a school district will pick you up in no time flat. They'd be foolish not to! Teaching is so hard and I admire the profession tons!!!!!! Sounds like you all had a fun weekend -- hope you didn't do too much with your back. One of my coworkers is having difficulties with hers now, but to be honest, she complains endlessly about it and unfortunately, I'm the closest body to her proximity wise, so it seems she's always lamenting to me about this/that/the other hurting. I feel so bad because she's got lots on her plate to deal with right now, but I wish I didn't have to hear her constantly telling me and then also telling anyone/everyone else she comes into contact with. The better side of me says she needs some loving arms and attention, but the other side of of me is getting frustrated at the endless complaining/super whininess of it. God must be testing my patience, or teaching me some lesson! Did the girls get tons of chocolate and Easter fun goodies? Good luck getting yard sale stuff ready too. Am hoping to get some of my junk into a friend's yard sale, but not sure I have time to deal with all of it right now. Fall would be better for me, but it would be nice to get rid of the stuff. I hear you when you say full to the gills.

gard - yay for it being a good week with Daddy home. Am sure you guys had fun and so did the kids for Easter. Didn't realize that WFE is getting bad reviews, but then again, sometimes what the critics hate, the people love. Am willing to give it a go and see what movie is like; may be a while before I get to it. Am kind of wanting to see another movie that comes out in a couple of weekends. Looks like fun loving romantic girlie flick. Seriously, remember that I'm the one who has to REALLY want to see the movie before I'll pay the high price to actually see it in the theatre.

mary - hope you had a great Easter weekend too. I know you were worried about too much candy/chocolate/goodies for Jen, so let's hope that everyone paid attention to what you told them and got her non-food stuff instead or only little bits of sweet stuff.

Had a pretty quiet holiday weekend, which was fine with me. I pretty much managed to totally blow of Friday, but the weather was just lousy all day (rain, rain, and more rain) so I acted like a couch potato. Except for laundry, pretty much nothing got accomplished. It's been unusually hot here already for April. We seem to be having pretty crazy weather all across the country at the moment, so I pray everyone is safe and sound and no craziness to be had. Must get the a/c in my car fixed too, it's blowing hot air and not cycling. Yuck -- hot weather and no a/c in the car is not a good mix. Have a great evening everyone!

Having a rough week ladies, please bare with my absence :roll: . Easter is suppose to be a happy time but I was depressed all weekend :(. My brother & SIL came to visit Friday since he was on break from law school(been 2 years since we last seen each other) . Well my mom came over and confronted him about the bad blood between them(they haven spoke in 7 years) and he got really irate with her (outside not it front the kids THANK GOD). She left in tears, I was in tears....it was horrible. After abotut 20-30 min he calmed down and finished playing with the kids, I sucked it up' for their sake. He appologized 'for putting me inbetween'....like that makes me feel anybetter. I just don't understand how he can be so nice to me but have total hatred toward our parents who never did him anything but tell him he needed to grow up. Sometimes I wonder if hes biopolar. Anyways, as the week progresses I am slowly starting to feel better. Hoping to be back to my cheery once all the dust settles.

On top of that Jacob has been really cranky from the teething so I'm not getting much sleep. Lots of other stuff going on too but really don't have time to list it all. Please say a prayer for me to help me get through this rough patch :PPPPP. Hugs.

P.S. One good positive thing came about this week, I accomplished all the cleaning I was hoping too on my extra days off!!!!

mary- wow so sorry about the family drama. :hugs: It does sound like something is wrong with him. It's hard to brush that off, plus take care of a teething baby and work.

But good job on the cleaning.

Hang in there, it is impossible to cope with things when you are tired. It does get better. I have my head back finally and I will never take a good nights sleep for granted again. it is key to everything.

Off topic...There are some nice BD articles in EW and People coming out this week, nice distraction if you can spare a second. Jacob looks very good in BD. He's all pissed off and cute. :oops:

Hi everybody - sounds like maybe we are all having quite a week!

mary - I think that gard gave you some great words. It is that much harder when you're worn out and tired. I'm so sorry that you were excited to see your brother and it was going well until he and your mom confronted one another. He obviously harbors some resentment, whatever that is, and isn't willing to let go of that for what he probably sees as good reason. It wouldn't be fair for me to judge why or how, so I won't remotely attempt that. All you can do, is love him as best as you know how and allow them to work out what they need to. Seems like things end up being one on top of the other and unfair to have so much on our plates, but you know there are reasons for things that happen -- and sometimes they're completely out of our control. You were brave and good and sweet I'm sure. Jacob getting teeth is a good thing -- except for it robbing you of sleep. Prayers and hugs and love for you hun!

gard - some days I think my head gets left behind on the pillow at home when I go to work!!! Life certainly gives us lots of hills and valleys -- and sometimes mountains, but thankfully we can pretty much scale most of the stuff, huh? Lord but my head is so tired that it took me three tries before I figured out what EW was in your post :? .

Thankful that Friday is almost here. Long week. Goofy people, and seems nobody happy this week. Sometimes there's just no pleasing anyone -- at least not where I work. Not people I work with, people have to deal with kind of thing. Anyhow, it's a great reason to look forward to having a couple of days off. Anyone into the whole royal wedding thing? I will probably watch part of it, but not all the extra hoopla. Seems strange to be old enough to remember his parents being married, and William as a newborn being shown off to the world.

Happy Friday everyone!!

Hey Girls,

Mary: Sorry for the family drama. trust me I know how uncomfortable it can be. The major face-to-face conflict always makes me sick to my stomach.

Sweets: Thanks for thinking about my back. It is doing better, but I still have pain there. Now that student teaching is coming to a close, I need to get myself in gear. i put off making a PT appt. to get a list of core exercises to use at home...i also haven't been exercising, except a little walking. I am going to call next week to make my PT appt. and I think i am going to do a deep water aqua aerobics at the YMCA since we are already members there for Ella's preschool. I am just going to start with that and gradually add some other things. I've got to do something, or I will end up with more surgery and I don't want that...at least for a very long time.

Gard: Glad to hear you had a good time with the fam, especially with DH home.

Well, looks like we are taking on a minor bathroom remodel, with new kitchen flooring too. Yikes. it's not supposed to take very long so that's good. It's mainly new flooring with a few other cosmetic changes. Our house is over 100 yrs old so any remodel makes me nervous that they are going to run into more problems...but fingers crossed it all goes well.

Keep me in your prayers that school districts start calling. i've sent out a bunch of resumes and applications...and will continue.

Hey everybody - glad Friday is here. It's been a long day .... I got poked in the back again. This surgery was different and I had to stay awake throughout it (took about 1/2 hour) - the anesthesiologist (sp) still gives you stuff to relax, but would rather be out. They had to make sure that my fingers and toes would still move, so that was the reason for awake part. Was an absolute trouper and surgeon impressed at how well I did as you have to lay very still and not flinch at all, but still cried through it just from the pain. Hopefully this one will really help and at least give me some relief so that I can get back to more normal stuff and feel like working out, get a full night's sleep, etc.

carter - it sounds like you guys are taking on some projects that I'm about to do too. Couple of months back, I bought a beautiful bathroom ensemble for a fantastic price at Home Depot (cabinet and sink top with mirro/faucet separate). I have a small bathroom, but the sink is perfect in that it has the cabinet part as well as a couple of deep drawers to one side for storage, which is crucial in my house. The cool part is that the sink is at the left side, but there's extra room on the top where the drawers are. It'll fit perfectly, give me little bit of extra room, and I'll still be able to shut the door without any problem. Friends are storing it for me for the time being (they have a giant basement storage area) until I get the bathtub and shower surround completed and ready for install of sink/cabinet and new toilet. I don't know about you, but I'm kind of ready to say goodbye to my 1950's looking bathroom (can you say icky colored sink and toilet!!!!). If this makes you feel any better, I forget to do my core exercises too. Can't remember if they had you doing some exercises on a balance ball, but I do find it helps with flexibility and sometimes just feels better on my tight back/hips. The whole core thing is really important. And great for you decided on a deep water aerobics class!!! I did one for quite some time and loved it -- feels so good to have the pressure taken off by being in the water and you really do get a great aerobic workout. If you're pretty bouyant (like me -- I have natural flotation devices :shock: ), try part of the workout without a flotation belt. Even better -- -but not at risk of hurting yourself if not so great at floating. Glad too that you could give some helpful words to mary about the whole family drama thing. I can't imagine what that's like! Lots of prayers for you for calls on a job. I know you'll do just great -- like I said before, it seems that you're just great at it, and they'd be silly to pass up on you.

mary - hoping it's a better day today. I can't help wondering what really set off the whole thing with your brother and your mom. Did mom come looking to have it out with your brother anyways? Of course, you can certainly tell me to mind my own darn business too. I see so much stuff at work where people have interfamily issues and disagreements. It really breaks my heart at times. I know you wouldn't want for your kids not to know your brother either so I simply pray that everyone can come to a point - even in time - where they mend fences. Just remember that you don't have control over whatever issue(s) your parents and your brother are dealing with - but can only give them your love and understanding and hope for it to be better. :D Hugs to you sweetie!

gard - you've been silent today. Must be a busy day for you hun!!! And now I remember what movie I want to see (even before WFE) and that's the new one with Kate Hudson "Something Borrowed." Comes out next week, but I won't go on that weekend. Will wait until not crowded kind of thing.

Thinking of you all. Hugs to each of you.

it's my birfday today. I'm 30...or 40...whatever. Going to benihana for lunch. That's where tom and I had our first date and I first realized that life with him could be fun. A novel idea for someone like me who doesn't really have much fun.

Tom and I were married for 6 years yesterday. I put on my dress and we danced with ourselves in the video. I have pics will load tomorrow.

So, I'm in a good mood today.

Brianna is coming to benihana. I think she is old enough.

Benihana is also where we saw Brianna's spirit before she was conceived in a smoke cloud over our heads. Then, we went back when we were TTC #2 and there was no smoke, so I was sad, but there were just two giant pillars.

THe pillars ended up being twins, but we didn't know it then. SO we have two very fortuitous pics from there.

There won't be any magic pics today. Unless its immaculate conception but I am not the virgin mary.

Toodles. Mwah... :mrgreen: :jump:

Happy happy happy happy birthday Nicole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'd forgotten about Benihana until you mentioned it -- how neat that so much has really happened there.... realized or not at the time. Let's hope B enjoys it and it helps her to realize how much joy both her mom and dad have known from there. And shame on you for making fun of yourself about not having fun. I think you do. It might just be in a calmer way than the rest of us. :D

So... hugs and kisses and lots of good wishes for your birthday! Hope you have something super yummy at Benihana. Have never been there, but it sounds scrumptious!!

Hey to everyone else. Am pretty much just hanging out and taking it easy.
this weekend. Am in turtle mode from surgery and moving around pretty slow. Will be interesting to see how I do back at work tomorrow.

sweets- what surgery? you should try benihana. Good date place. THe secret is to pour the sauce over the meat they give you. I really had a great day. I even baked a cake from scratch for the first time. cakes are the same recipe as cookies, but with milk. weird.

Have a good day all.

EOTM Grrrrrr. Besides work driving me nuts I am feeling alot better. I did my greiving over the whole brother thing and I think I'm over it. Mom seems to be too. Life has to go on right? I even managed to get some sewing done this weekend. I fighting hard to find my creative groove I lost several months ago. Lots of cutesy clothing projects for the kids lined up. As for kids, both are doing well, even at this early age they play so well. Jen can make him laugh better then any of us, she spends hours playing peek-a-boo, talking & reading to him. No jealousy yet, she still sees him as a brand new toy. But I'm sure once he's mobile and getting into her stuff she will she will have a change of heart :wink: . Started Jacob of solids a week ago b/c formula wasn't holding him anymore. He licks the bowl clean....lil man loves anything I give him. I can't believe hes almost 5 months :( ....growing to fast.


Nicole -- :balloons: Happy Birthday!!!!!!:balloons: Sorry its 'late' :roll: . I hope your birthday din-din went well. How did Briana react? I've only heard of Benihana's, don't know the story behind it. I don't think we have any near here or surrounding states. I've been wanted to go eat out as a family since Jen was born but it still hasn't happened :P. We always get it TO GO.

You mentioning Jacob in BD sent me out on a search to find some steamy stills. I was so mad at myself I stumbled across a big spoiler...Jacob imprinting on renesmee??? I wanna know but don't wanna know :roll: . I know BD will be two separate movies, but I am guessing there will be alot of time lapsing between them if Renesmee is a teenager? They have me wanting to go wait in line at theater already :wink: .


Sweets -- I second Nicoles WHAT SURGERY :shock: ?!?!? Sending you lots of recover fast wishes!!! On and don't fell bad about not being on FB, I though I was the only one NOT on there...we can be 'faceless' together :kiss: . Sometime I do wish regret not having one b/c so many businesses/people are only posting on there so I miss out on alot but like you I just don't have time to keep up with it.

To answer your question about my mom......No she didn't come over to 'stir the mud' she came over to make peace with him b/c she feared it might be her last chance. She had being praying about it for weeks, and she felt like it was her last opportunity. Its horrible to think about but if my parents were to die right now(lord forbid) I can honestly say I know he wouldn't come to the funeral. But I can promise you he would be there with the lawyer reads the will to make sure he gets half....awful awful awful. My mom regrets 'ruining our Easter' (her words not mine) but now she said her soul is at peace b/c she knows she did all she could to try and reach out to him. She's doing alot better now, she said life has to go on. She has two beautiful grandchildren to enjoy.

As for me and the whole incident I'm doing much better. I have come to terms with the fact that unless God changes his cold heart our family will be torn forever. I just feel bad for the kids for the uncle & aunt (aka Jacobs parrain and nanny) they will hardly get to know. Wished they didn't live so far away, but it could be worse, we could live in different states. Once he finishes law school next year we should beable to visit more often, he spends all his time studying these days. I know it has to be hard for your family living apart. One day I may have to invest a webcam.


Carter -- I knew if anyone could sympathize with our situation it would be you. Its ashame how many families are torn :( .


So much more I wanted to say but I gotta run pick up some office supplies before the weather gets bad, lots of rain on the radar :P.
Everyone else we miss you!!! Lyn, Amers, Jaima, PP....HAPPY early MOTHERS DAY!!!!! Hope you are all doing ok, we miss you dearly!!!!

mary- you have GOT to read BD because i"m not sure what is safe to talk about with you. Yes, Jacob imprints on renesmee as a baby. It's freaky. Did you see the pics of Jacob on the motorcycle?

The imprinting in the movie is said to be done tastefully where Jacob sees her as a grown-up and falls in love, but there is no way to make it not creepy. I love spoilers and I know everything that happens in the movie, so you need to tell me if you don't want to know. something really cool happens after Jacob imprints...

If you go looking for pics, you will find spoilers, so it's up to you.

THe imprinting crap won't be in theaters until Nov 2012, so you have time to read the book. I'm reading it for the 9th time now. Still love it. I'm getting the "complete illustrated guide" from my Dad for my birthday. It's supposed to have all the back stories and such.

OK, I'm still obsessed, but I am proudly not following Rob on his world tour for WFE.

sweets- I would really like it if you and Mary joined FB. Just in case we stop the thread, we'd have that tie still. I just watched the social network movie, it's cool. I have Carter and Lynn on there. I do not understand anything lynn posts on there, it's weird up there in Canada. :mrgreen:

email me at gardangels@juno.com and I will send you an invite to FB. you don't have to even go to the site to check messages, cuz they send them to your email.

OK, and i'd like to clarify that before Tom I did not really have fun. The grief and the lonliness had really jaded me to everything. Dating was painful and I never had fun even when I was with the girls, cuz I always felt alone and missing my other half. WHen I met him, his optimism and sort of rose-colored glasses made me feel like life COULD be fun. and sure enough, his life is fun, and my life is fun now because he rubs off on me.

I noticed it the first date at benihana. It's part of our chemistry that I love.

I talked to tom about this last night and he told me how he liked my honesty and how I wanted to be a mom. It was refreshing to him that I was real and serious about all of this. Which was great because how many guys were turned off by my directness and biological clock? Basically, I liked what he was offering and he liked mine and voila..

We aren't perfect, he had some anger issues and I'm sort of apathetic about some things, but so far we are doing good and life is fun. woo hoo.

OK nuff babblin...
