Hey Veronica i wouldn't call that bronze...it looks more like poo brown to me

Good afternoon all
Appointment went well, all good, dont have to go back to the hospital for another 6 weeks yaay... Bubs is head down (but of course will more than likely turn again), measurements all good, so im happy about that! Im felling 99% better, 1% still a bit "how ya goin" but am eating normal again so all is fine. And no1 else has had the so i rekon it was my bread after all LOL.
I just went to Westfields and spent a few $$, got all my toiletries and a few other things for hospital, actually spent less than i expected so that was good! I actually got 98% of my toiletries from the Reject Shop!!
Nicole ~ Hope you feel better soon!
Bec ~ Hope you are resting up!
Shan ~ COME BACK SOON!!! I would definately be pushing for a credit on your account now! My dad got stuffed around with the phone company for ages and he ended up with a $1000 credit!
Anyway i have a bunch of catalogues sitting in front of me calling my name so guna go read them, then vacuum, then go get Tahlia (a bit later than norm though for no particular reason except that they will be outside playing and she loves it out there so she can play a bit longer )

Vanessa - How are the wedding preps going?
Aidan & Isabel are awake, so trying to do some jobs while juggling them. At least Keenan is still asleep.

Well I think this evening I finally feel a bit better. DH and I have major cabin fever and I have been at him this afternoon. But he is going back to work tomorrow so hopefully Audrey and I will be able to get out and do something. We also made my mum sick. It is awful how these things spread.
Nat - We went onto Heinz Nuture formula. Audrey is still having two bottles of breastmilk and one formula but the stash is nearly exhausted so it will be time to move on to three bottles of formula a day soon.
Rach - you must be getting so excited. You sound like you are getting really organised for DF getting home.
Ness - Nice to see that you are still around. How is Ryan?
Moo - Are you going to do a test?
Posted 01 May 2007 - 06:18 PM
Bec+3 we were hafving problems with our internet I rang optius and I asked if they were in australia they said no so I asked for someone who was it helped.
Lara- I know I should do a test but I can't get one 2morrow as I have an extra toddler and no car seat. and murphy's law tells me as soon as I do a test AF will pay a visit. I think I have to wait another a couple of stressful days. My periods have been all over the show since being on the pill so who knows.

Geeee Roni... Could have thanked the babysitter when you got bronze!!!!! j/k.
Posted 01 May 2007 - 07:14 PM
Have PM'ed you back Bec... I am SO excited not only about seeing BJ (which i am kinda freaking about) but also about seeing you my dear friend!!
Well this arvo the kids all slept which was great. Then i dragged them to the gym at 5pm (poor things!) I did 10km on the treadmill and now i am f**ked. It is all good though as i am trying to burn this last 1.9kg which i think is permanently attached to my butt! OH well, i will try to get rid of it and if it stays there then maybe i am mean't to be this weight.
Anyhoo better go, feral children are having dinner, then i am going to chuck them in the bath and *hopefully* get them to bed at a decent hour

Rach - I am nervous for you, I will never forget the few days before seeing Adrian after being apart for weeks or months. It would drag on and I'd be a nervous wreck and then it would be SO good to see one another and then it would be SO hard to re-adjust to being together again! We never fight apart from in the first few days of being reunited I think it's because you put so much pressure on yourself imagining what things will be like when they come home and when they do it's not the magical solution to everything and they're jetlagged and you both realise you each have faults and aren't the perfect specimens you'd been building up over the months of absence - But it's all good, hey?! Just a bit nerve-wracking at times!
Sorry for that ramble...!
I've finally started to sort through my photos from Brisbane, here's a few
Jack, Josh, Damian and Kirsten
Off to keep working on more photos!

I am sooooooooooooo exhausted. First day back at work today and god my brain is hurting! Few teething problems in the family for our first day but I feel confident we can work it out. DH picked up Zoe and he said she was pretty whingy and clingy when he got her home then she power spewed twice When I got home she was laying on DH with her eyes shut but seemed to improve greatly when I got home. I really hope she wasn't just so upset and missing me that she made herself sick. Anyway my fabulous DH had even unpacked the groceries we got delivered while looking after a sick baby so I was impressed. Day care say Zoe is doing much better which is great. Now if I could just learn this new job..............
That's all I have time for I'm sorry - Susie hope you are adjusting ok to being at work.

Mel: tired here too and I have only done 1 day
I knew as soon as I went back I would be wishing I was home.
I prepared everything the night before so I didnt rush around in the morning.Gee a day at paid work is so long. I feel like I've lost a bit of interest and everyone has moved on.Maybe cos I have more important things waiting for me at home
I am possibly thinking about asking to work only 3 days (M,W,F) as my replacement will be kept on (boss's daughter) and they have nowhere to put her anyway.That way she can take up some of the slack.I'm thinking 4 days is a bit much.I might suggest trying 3 days until tax time (helps to min. tax also here) and see how I go.
By going back to work makes me appreciate even more whats at home.
Roni: those photos are beautiful.Love the sparkling water one.
Rach; i might start using my tready again to during Winter as its too dark by the time I get home from work to go walking and I have been pram walking almost everyday since Jack.I have been good and packing a healthy lunch for work and i am determined not to go back to my old ways of eating crap at my desk.I dont want to undone my good work
Bec: Jonah is still in the lead. How toned are your arms. I developed muscle in them just from carrying him around all year.
Jack has really evened out though cos he's getting taller so the weight is alot more evenly distributed. Cheeks are still there but not the chipmunk variety like he was early on.
Moo: I think Optus are owned by Sing-tel which are in Singapre which is why your help is probably not the best. We have Optus and they are ok but the other choice is Telstra which really isnt much of a choice
Moo, would it be a bad thing if a positive came up. Maybe its just late cos your stressing. One of the mums from IRL mg just told us shes pg today with her 2nd. Shes very excited. I guess it got the ball rolling as to who will be next.
Has anyone else started their bubs on cows milk. At the moment I'm doing a 1/3 formula / 2/3 cows milk.Wont be long til I do complete cows milk.I still have a few tins left to use up.
better go off to bed. I have even started reading a bit again in bed. Amazing the other things out there when you switch the comp off
i'm readin How to Babyproof Your Marriage and its quite funny and hits the nail on the head. Only 2 chapters in so far.
* hi Shannon down there

Just on my way to the shower then bed (as Miss Isabel is asleep for the moment... sigh!) but thought i'd quickly post.
Roni - Those pics are incredible!! We need to organise a catch up, its been ages since i last saw you. Do you go to playgroup on Thursday mornings? I saw Purps this morning and she suggested i come along for the boys socialisation as they love playing with Sam, plus for me for more socialisation (as currently i only really socialise with other Mums on Mondays and Tuesdays and i am feeling a bit blah iykwim. So if you do it would be great to catch up weekly.. but either way we should organise a catch up next week when BJ is here so i can come with just Izzy! Can you tell i'm itching to get outta the house. Also what you wrote about when Adrian came home is what i'm freaking about. We were talking tonight and i said to him that i am worried about it being weird between us and me being a cow and not knowing whether to hug or kiss or whatever. I also said that i am so worried about having in my head that he is the perfect partner & father, but then he gets back and his faults will fall on me like a ton of bricks.. He told me i over analyse everything too much, which i know i do, and told me to go with the flow and we will deal with it as it happens. We have great communication which is good cause i think we will need it!!
Susie - I worked 3 days when the boys were little - i started full time but it was too hard, and 3 days was perfect. IT was enough time to have a break but i also got to have a few days with the boys and to do other Mum things - like cooking, cleaning - all the joyous things! I loved just having those days to hang out at home and play with the boys. Also i am going to start Izzy on cows milk soon. I have 3 tins of formula, so once those are finished then i might only buy another couple and start doing 3/4 formula, 1/4 cows milk initially for a few weeks and build it up like that. Izzy is 11 months now so i guess i could start it sooner but i'm too lazy!
Mell - Oh your DH sounds lovely. Poor Zoe on the spew . I'm sure she will be fine in time though - it is a big adjustment for a little person. I am glad your first day went well. Don't put too much pressure on yourself - you are expected to find it tough - its the joy of being a Mum!!
Anyhow better go - want to jump in the shower. A plumber came and fixed my ensuite toilet today so now i don't have to traipse to the end toilet in the middle of the night. There is a toilet connected to Izzy's room too but it wakes her up so you should see me going down the stairs, down the hall, through the kitchen etc to get to the loo.. its a major pain in the a*se!
I am off to the gym first thing tomorrow, then might be meeting a playgroup buddy and Lara (Lara - you going?) for a coffee, then have to get home to get the kids to bed, then have a lady coming to do my eyebrows & eyelashes waxing/tinting, and then i have a huge homeshop being delivered.. busy busy!!

Rach - I agree with what Roni said about DH's coming home. It can be hard to re-adjust especially because you have been doing everything on your own. I remember when DH came over after a month I cried at the airport and was so happy and then the first time he told me what to do with Audrey I was so p*ssed off. I thought how dare you, I have been doing this by myself. Anyway just try and be patient and enjoy your time with each other.

My little man woke up crying, and coughing so im assuming he is getting what his father has I so had plans 2moro so lets cross our fingers that its just an early morning thing!
DP was up and down all night, coughing and carrying on, poor man, but he still went to work, god forbid he lets his body rest so whatever he has can settle down. Walking around in the cold morning air wont do much for it!
BBL for stuff...personals...etc...
Oh and Susie ~ Jordan is on his 2nd week of 1/4 milk 3/4 formula, all is good so going to go half and half on Saturday!
ETA ~ DP informs me last night that we can get a new car....But not until August. He is going to use some of his Super, and cant get it out until then! I dont know how we are going to sort out the car seats so they fit in our car now, we are going to have to go shopping one weekend and try a few seats out

Posted 02 May 2007 - 07:57 AM
Rach you must be so excited
Roni those photos look great I wish I could have been there.
Susie no it wouldn't be such a terrible thing if I was preggers but it is not ideal, I am sure if we find out we are we will be excited but for now I am sticking with stress lol.
The neighbours are having there usual morning screaming match I wish they'd get a clue and relise that we can hear every word of what they say. There eldest daughter is about 15 and she is constantly screaming and yelling but her convo's are intresting sorry you girls don't need to know aboiut there live neither do I. I better get something done today.

Oh, btw, you will have to post a quick before and after of your haircut, it is the rules! lol
Oh my, guess what's back on Prime... hehe The Fairies.

Rach: I'm excited for you, just don't put too much pressure on the first night, or even the first week, jetlag does silly things with your system.
