You know, saying "ignore this thread" to this group is like saying "don't push the big red button!" 

Homeschoolers.     They always think the rules don't apply to them.

Cardiologist report: this doc was a major answer to prayer. He was appalled at the lack of communication from the previous doctor and apologized profusely even though it wasn't his fault. Dd's heart

I couldn’t tell from your post what you thought.  Or if there was some manipulation involved. 😆

 

Personally, I didn’t like either of those, but old reels in and of themselves are very cool - if you have a machine to play them.

She has lots of weird old things. She's sent a lot of WWII memorabilia to John. Have I mentioned that my husband is German? Ahem.

No, we have Nazi paraphernalia. That's legal, right?

Okay.  Planning initiated.  I don't think I'm being realistic with how much DS is going to get done, though.  The best laid plans and all that jazz.  The outline sounds interesting to me, at least.  So if the teacher is engaged, there's hope?

Wow!

My dh is also German, but not sure if there were any Nazis in his family.  They are pretty proud of their family tradition of draft dodging, though, so probably not likely.  The other side of dh is Norwegian.

I’m descended from Mennonite peasant stock. They are of German descent, but they speak low German and eat zwiebach. And are pacifists. I’m not a pacifist. I’m not a good Mennonite. I’m also a Calvinist. That’s definitely not being a good Mennonite.🤣🤣

Indeed teacher engagement is half the battle, or more.  Yay for a good plan!!

Good morning!

Imma have the kids work on cleaning out the coat closet that is in the basement and not used as a coat closet.  There's some untapped storage potential there, though.  Might be able to make something of it.  I have a meeting with my health coach this morning.  Might be my last one, as my year on the program ends after next week.

Coffee!

I'm all lower crampy this morning. Is this Braxton-Hicks? I don't remember this, but I don't like it. Slows me down. I have to sit and wait for it to pass each time. It's happened a few times a day for the last few days. Not super painful, but kinda nauseating. Reminds me a lot of the old once a month prelude. 

Are you carrying low?  How many weeks are you?  (#notadoctor  #nordoIplayoneonTV  )

Today's arthritis weather prediction: rain.

I had a really hard time walking up the stairs this morning.  It probably took a full minute to get to the top.  Dd9 clapped for me.

I feel like I'd want to check in with my doctor on this, but I do tend to be a worry wort. I'm also a BIG supporter of drinking lots of water, so I'd recommend that too. I sure hope it passes soon!

I know you don't have time to go back and read THAT many pages, but you did miss Slachie forgetting to Booya(h). 

I'm shocked and appalled, Slash! It's a good thing I missed it; it may have turned my universe inside sideways. I often do read catch up pages, but I've just been so busy, kinda, that I just decided...not.

I'm at the er with youngest dd.  She woke up with stomach pain, went to go to bathroom and had ringing in her ears, then vision blurred and she fell.  I woke up hearing her kind of moaning then heard her hit the floor.  Got her up, tried to go to couch and she got the ringing, blacking and fell again. 

I don't go to er easily but seemed warranted and our local hospital doesn't have any covid.  They did blood, ekg, CT scan and we are waiting for results.

Quoting myself:  swollen lymph nodes due to bladder infection, low blood pressure possibly due to lack of sleep, following up with pediatrician within a couple days.

No. Nope. No way. Not happening. Not possible. Am I making myself clear? 😂

Oldest and Youngest were overdue and nearly identical in size (both in weight and length). No way am I laboring 2 months early. We are not ready yet. I am not ready yet. Did I mention we're not ready yet?

I might have used the wrong word, but contractions that don't do anything can last for 2 months no problem.

Blame Eve.

I did pre labor super early. Like 5 months. Totally freaked me out. I've done it with each one since. All my babies were full term.

Isn't Braxton Hicks the same as pre labor? 

Pre labor is consistent Braxton Hicks and can include gastrointestinal symptoms. Everyone has BH, not everyone has pre labor.

I don't remember having either one. Just some random light contractions in the last couple weeks before they were born.

That's BH. But you said it kept happening and that sounds like pre labor, which is fine. 

It's an owie for no reason Booya!

I had that with Gymnast. Apparently, reading Ina May birth stories was exciting my uterus. I had to stop. I started reading them again two weeks before I was "due," and went to 42 weeks, 3 days. Go figure. 🤷🏾‍♀️

Are we all watching the launch?

Yes?  Not sure how to watch it yet.  We don't have cable TV.  Surely there's a website somewhere?

Found a live YouTube for watching.

I am officially on maintenance phase with my health program.  The director feels Very Strongly that I must eat a high fat, high glycemic carb diet one to two days a week (or at least 4-5 meals spaced out through the week).  I think I can get on board with that! 😄
