Thanks, Mary! My poor Owen has bronchitis so we changed up our birthday ditch day plans of going to the San Diego Zoo but it was a nice mellow day! We'll be going to the zoo later this month when they have Spring Break.

Pixie~

SO sorry to hear that Owen is sick! Bronchitis sure isn't any fun! I hope he's on the mend quickly!

The zoo sounds like a fun time! Crazy to think that spring break is around the corner for you guys.

Lloks like it has been dead! Mary you so have to make the facebook move! I've been hanging in there. I am really unhappy at work- we're house shopping for something bigger and it's been a hard process rhis time. We've placed 4 offers (all fair) and been outdone by cash offers. Who the hell has 215k in cash? Whoever they are suck!

Hi Aubs~

{{{HUGS}}}

Sorry to hear about you being unhappy at work. That's never a good thing. Do you know yet if you're set for another year there though? Any chance of getting the younger kids?

Also sorry to hear about your rough times house shopping too. I too don't know who has that kind of cash laying around. Not that we're in a house shopping mode but I can't say that I've seen much movement in the market around here yet. Jeff & Kim were looking a few months ago & found something they liked & made an offer on it (a short sale). They got approved by the owner but before they got an answer from the bank they changed their minds cuz Kim was able to get one of the Forest Preserve houses for super cheap rent so they decided to hold off on buying. BTW, they're engaged now. The wedding is in December.

We had Kelly's baby shower on Saturday. She's 31 weeks now. I'm going to her next appt with her to see the ultrasound & meet her dr...next week. She just started the 2 wk appts last week.

Still no plans for me to move to FB.

No, No, No!!! I have not moved on! Just super busy and can never catch anyone in HYENa-land when I am here. And I am busy with the boy in all my free time

I can't believe Kelly is that far along already!

Sweet Dreams Mary!

I've been swamped with life myself. R is here for his two weeks R&R. We figured out that in the time he's been gone, he's gotten 278 hours more sleep than I have. I've been playing catch-up while he's here.

Just 7 more weeks of school. Can't wait for summer. Got a burn at Key West this week. All is good.

Baby is a she, & her name is Violet Rose.

Yep...we have alot going on.

With Jeff & Kim's wedding, Kelly, Chris & Violet will all be in it. Since I'm the mother of the groom I'm not quite as much in the loop about everything, but I do know a few things.

Had Jerry in the hospital for a couple days in February. He's OK but we have some things to watch now.

I'm sure it's GREAT having R home! I think you should bank all those extra hours of sleep that R got & I'm glad that you've been playing catch-up while he's there. He'll probably owe you a whole bunch more hours when he's back again for good.

Funny you should mention about how many more weeks of school the kids have. I was just thinking about that the other day & thought about you and Aubs & wondered how many for each of you.

Glad to hear all is good with you!

Hi Jen~It seems like there is NEVER 2 HYENas on here at the same time anymore.

It's WONDERFUL to hear that you're busy with the boy in all of your free time. I'm thrilled for you, Sweetie!

As of today Kelly can officially say that she's due next month.

Glad he's OK had to have been serious enough to land there.

Violet Rose is such a pretty name and not so common now. Are either of the names a family name?

Just had the van in the shop today for a routine mileage check-up and to address an oil leak. Guess how much. 1,705.xx. Holy cow!! Of course, $200 of it was to replace a fob that R lost in Key Largo lost year. Between our trip to Key West, field trips, a class ring, etc. I feel like we are broke.

Kelly thinks Violet dropped since we saw them on Easter & Chris seems to agree. I don't remember when is around normal for that to happen cuz she's still too far away from her due date to deliver....but she definitely doesn't think she'll make it to her due date. Her next appt is next Thursday.

I got to go to the last appt., last Thursday so I got to meet her dr (verrry nice!), see an ultrasound, & hear Violet's heartbeat! Violet was sticking her tongue out.

I really want to see them this weekend. Haven't gotten a response yet to my invitation.

I love that she was sticking her tongue out. So funny. I hope you got to see them this weekend.

I had my van back in the shop on Thursday. It was still leaking oil. It cost less than $7 to repair. Not too shabby this time around.

We didn't get to see the kids over the weekend. I had forgotten that Saturday was Chris's Mom's birthday & they had plans with her. They took her to her favorite bakery in Chicago to pick up her favorite cake & some butter cookies, and then to a restaurant for an early dinner.

Baby Mama is pretty uncomfortable most of the time & doesn't get good sleep at night so she really wants to be done now but I keep telling her that Violet needs to do some more growing so it's still too soon for her arrival. I have mentioned to Kelly a few times that the lack of sleep isn't going to change once Violet is here.

On the van, the $7 probably felt kinda like a "gift" compared to what it cost you last week, huh?

Isn't that the truth about lack of sleep. There is a time where it gets better but then they are then they get older stay up later, hang out w/ friends, etc. But you know all that.

I was tickled with the price.

As always, things seem to be busy around here. I've been dabbling with things I should be doing and things that have wasted my time. It's all good to me. The kids and I are getting down and dirty tonight and tomorrow doing some spring cleaning, sorting clothes for donation, etc. My guilty pleasure lately has been Downton Abbey.

She has another sleep interrupter now too, besides Violet. It's Lexi. She's got lots of issues, none of which will get better & it's not a good situation. Chris just can't bring himself to do what needs to be done. He actually had an appt for it & cancelled it the morning of. That was before they moved to their new place. I know it must be very hard for Chris but it's just time so Lexi doesn't keep suffering. Her quality of life is definitely not the same as it used to be. She's 14 or 15 yrs old.

I don't think you ever really have a not busy time, do you?

Jeff & Kim are in Vegas until Monday, for a family wedding on Kim's side. Not sure about Kim, but it's Jeff's first time there other than an airline debacle when we were flying back from his boot camp graduation & the airline had some issue with his ticket so he couldn't go on the same flight as us. Jerry stayed with him & they spent some time in the airport in Vegas.

Kelly & Chris are coming for dinner tonight. YAY. We saw them for just a few minutes last week. She's at 29 days now.

ETA: Kel told me this morning that she thinks Violet has run out of room in her belly. Heehee!

I know it must be very hard for Chris but it's just time so Lexi doesn't keep suffering. Her quality of life is definitely not the same as it used to be. She's 14 or 15 yrs old.
That is sad and a hard thing to do.

Kelly & Chris are coming for dinner tonight. YAY. We saw them for just a few minutes last week. She's at 29 days now.

ETA: Kel told me this morning that she thinks Violet has run out of room in her belly. Heehee!
I hope the wedding was nice. I've been through Las Vegas several times and visited once. I was told it isn't a bad place for a family but I'm thinking that is if you don't go to to the main strip. The kids did enjoy the Bellagio with their water show.

I concur. I wish they didn't have to deal with this.

I got a few texts from Jeff & Kim emailed a few pics while they were there, but I didn't really get any details about the wedding itself. I'm
pretty sure it was nice though.

They stayed at the Luxor.

I agree...I doubt that the main strip would really be appropriate for kids. We went & saw the Hoover Dam when we were there 30 years ago. It was pretty cool & I think almost anyone would enjoy seeing it.

Hi Deborah!

We just a few short weeks away from the end of school. I'm so looking forward to the summer break.

Quickie post~

Hello my Lovely HYENas...

Baby Mama has been having contractions for the past few weeks & some other uncomfortable stuff going on...what I predicted her dr would say at her appt Thursday...all is normal. She now goes to weekly appts but hopes she'll go into labor this coming Saturday. It's a full moon then & a kinda special one cuz the moon will be 30% closer & brighter than other full moons. She has a makeup gig for 2 prom girls that day that will put a nice chunk 'o change back in their savings account so I (we) are hoping she can make it thru that day.

I have given up on Kel doing my hair color for the past 2 months, (so I'm WAAAAY overdue) cuz being on her feet for any length of time make her feet swell up. I don't wanna make her any more uncomfortable than she already is, so I've been coasting on my hair color even tho I'm not happy about it. I finally called my former hair girl to see if she's still in business, check on her prices, & find out how she & her family are doing. It's all pretty much as I expected. None of the stuff is really good other than she is still able to keep her shop open. I guess I have to suck it up & make an appt with her. She is such a sweetheart that I'm really OK with it, other than having to pay her shop price...even tho it hasn't changed since I last had her do my hair, considering our current medical expenses, it isn't pretty. What to do???

Good night my Lovely HYENas...wherever you are...sweet dreams!

Is there a baby yet? Was she able to get through the prom make-up Saturday?

The moon was awesome. I wish we could have gone to the beach to see if we could see any turtles nesting. Best night to go is when there is a full moon for pictures. You can't use a flash so it would have been ideal. However, my kids have lives and they don't always mesh with what I would like to do.

Did you get your hair done? Even though it will be spendy (compared to normal) it will be so worth it. If you've already gone 2 mos. longer than you would have, you feel so good to have it done.

Let us know how things are going.

No baby yet, but she sure has been busy getting ready to make her debut. Lots of contractions that always end up stopping. Baby Mama has not been feeling good at all, which I feel bad about, but it's all part of the process. Sometimes she refers to Violet as a body snatcher. She's at 17 days now, & has her 1st one week check up tomorrow. She said if she hasn't started dilating she's gonna have a strict talk with Violet. *snort* I'm not sure if Kel has gotten the memo that I've sent to her a few times, that Violet is the boss & we're all on her schedule.

She was able to do the prom girls makeup on Saturday, so she got to tuck a niiiiice chunk of money back in the bank. It was also very nice that the girls went to Kel's house instead of her having to schlep all of her stuff over to them.

I got to see the Supermoon on Saturday night for just a little while & it was pretty spectacular. It had been overcast all day & all evening so I was not expecting to be able to catch it, but the sky did some clearing up in time & I'm really glad I got to see it.

I finally did bite the bullet & go to get my hair done yesterday. I'm considering it my Mother's Day gift to me. It was great to catch up even more with the girl who does my hair. It struck me yesterday that aside from not going to her for about the past 2 years, I've been a customer of hers for 12 years. Wow! How times flies! We had a great chat & as I was leaving she thanked me for coming back. I call her a girl but she's married, has 3 kids, & 2 grandkids. She still looks great!

Love that she would have a talk with Violet if she hasn't started to dilate. It will be the first of many I'm sure.

So glad you got your hair done. You must have felt great when you left her salon.
