Bummer!
I hope it gets better for you!

BTW, did the Food Nazi give you some good advice on what to eat? I'd love to hear any tidbits of info that you've learned.

I'm glad that she understands.

Thanks, Jess!

So true! I get overwhelmed in department stores!

I think they get their stuff like the next day or by the time the challenge rolls around, because did you notice they all then had their swimsuits on?

I think I'd plan ahead and wear my swimsuit under my clothes.

I do, too.
I know I never used to have a problem.
I cant tell if I have no patience, don't care about "stuff" like I once did, can't stand the clutter in my house or I just can't afford it.

Or maybe it's all of that. Shopping isn't fun like it used to be.

I tried to find out if someone teased her in any way but she said no.

Tom does not own a gun but he has a "I'm not afraid to go BACK to prison" talk all worked out

Hopefully she'll confide in you about the reason for not wanting to wear a skirt again.

I love Tom's "prison" talk that he has planned!

((hugs))

It's really tough on parents when the little ones start showing their independance and making decisions on their own!! Good luck surviving this stage!

You know I want details about the food!

Did you have an appetizer? What was your main course?

I've never tried pisacio cake, but I imagine that it is tasty.

I do feel awful that they missed out on what I'm sure was an expensive trip, but come on! Don't you think that if you're going on a trip like that, you'd make sure your passport was current?? I know she had a passport, so she had proof that she is a US citizen, but still. Rules are rules.
What a bummer!
She should've made sure it was current.

My mil would like to see this mall. I like shopping, but I don't think I like it that much. Plus, I would have to pay for my own flight, split the cost of the room, and take a day off of work. That's a lot when I'd probably rather be home with the guys.

I told them that I would pass this time, but I did seriously consider it. Did I make the wrong decision?
I think that if you didn't have 100% desire to go on this trip, then no, it's not the wrong decision.

We just watched it earlier this week.

I thought of you and Jus when I saw your boyfriend. It was pretty good.

This weekend we need to go out and get 2 things - a spider strainer and something else I hope we remember when we get to the cooking supply store near here - and I guess he's making chicken.

Homemade fried chicken sounds soooo good right now! Especially if there are some homemade mashed potatos and gravy to go with it.

I hope Tom has fun learning to cook this! Let me know what you think about the recipe.

Sunday is football day so I'll either be on my couch, at Flipside, or both.

This sounds like a fun weekend!

The only thing that is planned for my weekend is for the entire family to work at the annual Fire dept. auction and bbq Saturday night.

This will be my 17th year helping!! Gosh the time has flown by.

My job is to write down the names of the people that have the winning bid on auction items.

Sunday I am taking photos of the Sunday School classes at church and we will have lunch at the inlaw's house.

We rarely fry anything, but when we do, I'll pour the used oil in a container with a tight fitting lid and through it away.

I *love* going to cooking supply stores!!! That sounds like so much fun!!

I'm not going to do that where I live, so I just don't ever fry anything!

She is soooo sweet, but I'm totally frustrated with her chewing.

She has several chew toys, treats, etc, but she's chewing on the wooden support beams for the porches. She also digs/bites up my plants and carries them around and leaves them in various parts of the yard. Uggh. Our back yard looks like rednecks live here!

FYI--there is some partial nudity and one suggestive "going solo/master of my domain" scene....

I don't know if you're planning on letting Kate watch so I thought I should warn you.

Here's Trixie Schauer (aka Trav) and some of her girlfriends ready for a night out on the town!

Travis is wearing the blue dress. I have more photos of him, his cousin Trent, and his friends on facebook. It's hard to tell in this photo, but Travis has some really nice arms and some great abs! If he were to work out, he would be really buff.

you are right, the back bothered me more and it wasn't needles.

So I am not allergic to anything, yet I still have the burning sensation and I broke out in hives all over again. He gave me a prescription for Zyrtec for the hives, Zantac for the burning sensation and an epipen in case G0d forbid I have trouble breathing or go into anaphylactic shock. Still they donít know what is causing all this, just giving me stuff to try and mask it and keep it in control. Made an appt now with the gastroenterologist to see if he can find something.

sorry to say she is right Leslie and I have found the threes are worse than the 2's. My kids were both angels until 18 months and then they became terrors. LOL! He is still the cutest thing ever though, wait until he starts to talk and gives you that sweet little grin. It is so hard to be mad and firm with them when they do that.

You do have a great child! You've done a great job too!
my boys still like to snuggle and they are 6 and 9. I still am dreading the day, but my sweet little Brandon keeps telling me he will never he too old to snuggle and hug and kiss his mom. I hope so!

Les, you know what else I do?
I make a point to ask Kate if she'd like to do something with me.
Or rather could I join her doing something.
She'll choose a bike ride/walk, a board game (this is a good one to get in the habit of early!).
That way we spend time together but it's something kind of on her terms.

Last night we all sat on the porch in the dark and watched the lightening.
She was a chatter box the entire time! Other times I can't get her to tell me anything.
Edie is right. I do the same with the boys, separately too. Today I had lunch with Brandon since he was the star of the week this week.

So I am not allergic to anything, yet I still have the burning sensation and I broke out in hives all over again. He gave me a prescription for Zyrtec for the hives, Zantac for the burning sensation and an epipen in case G0d forbid I have trouble breathing or go into anaphylactic shock. Still they donít know what is causing all this, just giving me stuff to try and mask it and keep it in control. Made an appt now with the gastroenterologist to see if he can find something.

Gosh, I hope that the gastroenterologist can give you some answers and that the new RX's work.

Travis is wearing the blue dress. I have more photos of him, his cousin Trent, and his friends on facebook. It's hard to tell in this photo, but Travis has some really nice arms and some great abs! If he were to work out, he would be really buff.
LOL! How funny!

He is still the cutest thing ever though, wait until he starts to talk and gives you that sweet little grin. It is so hard to be mad and firm with them when they do that.
I'm hoping that he's just getting it out early.

I'm sorry. That's so frustrating!

My mil would like to see this mall. I like shopping, but I don't think I like it that much. Plus, I would have to pay for my own flight, split the cost of the room, and take a day off of work. That's a lot when I'd probably rather be home with the guys.

I told them that I would pass this time, but I did seriously consider it. Did I make the wrong decision?
I don't think you made the wrong decision. That is a lot of money for the flight and the room, just to go shopping.
