And Congratulations to you too hoping, that is so exciting and very selfless of you to do that for someone
Allie - when I weaned Kash from formula to homo milk, I did it a third at a time....do it over a period of 2 weeks so you don't mess with the stomach too much, and just go a third at a time until it's all milk. If he is having problems with it, then take longer to get to the full milk.
I just got home last night from being away for about 10 days. Got most of my Christmas shopping done now, except for a few people. Man is it ever getting expensive for Christmas!!! Not really sure what happened to the true meaning of Christmas......seems to be all about expensive lavish gifts now......not from this person it sure isn't, but there is just way too many people to buy for!
Hearty - I am sorry about your frustration. Men really don't get it at all.
I am feeling good though. I am going to be booking my first prenatal appointment for next week I think. I have a 24 hour heart test scheduled for tomorrow, so I am thinking I will have the results for that by next week too and kill two birds in one stone. The heart test is just because I was getting dizzy all the time (low blood pressure), so they just want to check my heart out as well....nothing serious or with the baby.
yes it is. The crappy thing is, I have to go to the Hospital in High Level to get it done....so I have to be there for 9:00 am (earlier to check in and what not), and then drive back home and go to work. Then drive back again on Wednesday to get it removed for the same time, and then again back to work. It's 138 km each way!!! And she said it would only take about 10 minutes......seems like such a waste of my time to drive all that way for about half an hour total!
Mel- I'm loving your ticker!!! I hope the heart test goes well. It sucks you have to do so much driving for it.
Thought I would share Penny's 1st pet store experience:
Friday, while we were at the mall I decided to pop into the pet store as a little treat for Penny. Little did I know how terrified she would be! Every time I brought her near the puppy pens or the birds she would hold onto me for dear life and make a shuttering/ disgusted noise and her little body would tremble for a minute. I thought she was just overwhelmed by the amount of animals at one time so we choose a small, cute English bulldog to take to a room and play with. She hid behind me the entire time but would stick out her hand wanting to pet him. As soon as he came near her she would snatch her hand away and hide. A puppy will not be anywhere in our near future thatís for sure! Plus after him being in the room for only one minute he peed all over the floor and proceeded to slip and slide in it through out our visit as well as poo every where. We learned a valuable lesson that day, neither one of us is puppy ready. Tim was happy to hear there would be no begging for a puppy from either of us for a very long time!
That sucks that she was terrified of them though. Hopefully in time she will come around and enjoy them.
I like taking Kash into pet stores as well when I am out of Town. He loves them. We have a cat at home though. It was funny last night, as I think the two of them missed each other, as Milo kept hanging out around the tub while Kash was having his bath. Kash would reach out his hand and Milo would swat it, and they kept doing it, all the while Kash laughing!
Oh man, welcome back to hell at work today! My supervisor is such a witch! She didn't even get into the office until after lunch and then was being so rude to everyone. She freaked out on me because I knew about this surprise that is happening and it's supposed to be confidential. She was like I am the supervisor and I am the one that is supposed to be approached about it and then I delegate it out. You shouldn't know anything confidential over me and blah blah blah. So I told her that even her boss doesn't know about it, and that I am the only person in this district that knows about it, as corporate has one contact person per district to help them out with this surprise taking place. So she asked me for the name of the lady and was phoning her to give her shit about it! WOW! What a way to ruin a nice thing that is happening, and now I don't even want to be this contact person anymore to hand out the surprise.........
Mel- We have a cat named Niko and Penny adores her. They do the swatting thing as well and Penny is always following her around... not sure Niko adores Penny as much though She even tries to say "kitty cat."
omg, what a drive this morning! I left about 7:25 am, and pulled into the hospital a couple minutes after 9:00. Then it was like the lady even forgot I was coming, so I was a little annoyed about that. It was snowing last night and so the roads were horrible...I almost hit the ditch 3 times, but thankfully I was able to keep it on the road. There was so much traffic that there was major whiteouts happening. The plows haven't finished clearing the roads yet either (and they do a crappy job anyway). I was so happy to get to work at 11:00!!! Needless to say, I refused to go back in tomorrow morning again and said since the doctor is here tomorrow, he can take off the monitor instead and bring it back with him!!
