Yea, that sounds rather un-saveable. I think the bowl that melted on our element was only on there for the briefest of seconds before we noticed, so it was coated, but did not melt thoroughly into the coils and all.

Good luck!

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Luckily no one was hurt. I really doubt the element will be saved though. The plastic was pretty much liquefied and coated many sections of the coil. I was looking at them today and the big ones cost about $30, but I forgot to find out what type of stove it was.

Oh my goodness, Mel! That is very scary. I'm glad no one was hurt!

edited to add - I had a plastic bowl melt on a element recently. I was able, with some patient picking at it, to manage to get it peeled off the element once it had cooled down. Good luck with it. It will smell like burnt plastic for the first few times you use it. Cover the smell with some nutmeg or cinnamon sprinkled in some boiling water on another element at the same time you use the plastic-y one.

I'd better go out and rent Fireproof quick, I could use the advice. My kids tried to burn down my kitchen yesterday! lol My oldest left a chair by the freezer, which is by the stove. My toddler got up on the freezer and turned on one the elements,the same one that had a plastic bowl on it. So the bowl is ruined and so is the element because its coated in plastic now. Good thing you can buy them nearly anywhere!

Mel - fireproof is a regular movie that you can go rent.

Sam - marriage encounters sound great, I'm gonna have to look for something similar around here.

I haven't watched the new movie either but have heard of similar things like the Marriage Encounter your talking about Sam. There is a preacher names Travis Plumlee that does alot of classes on Marriage and read about them all the time in the Baptist Trumpet. I haven't attended any of them but heard they were very good. As for going to the movies I have a hard time staying awake in movies and right now I would have to make to many trips to the restroom.

Marriage Encounter is a religious based weekend for couples. There are facilitators who help you and your spouse reconnect through prayer and talk. It;a a great weekend. Not what I had originally expected, but was very valuable at the time for us.

I've never seen Fireproof. Is it just a regular movie I could rent or like a self-help type movie? Sounds like a neat idea though.

what's a marriage encounter? I think dance lessons would be fun, but I'm so not ready for that. of course the only kind of dancing my hubby will do is line dancing, and he already knows how to do that, used to instruct in it in fact, so I'll just have him teach me when I'm ready.

Love Dare sounds interesting. Has anyone been to a Marriage Encounter recently? My DH and I went to one about 20 years ago. It was fantastic. Not that we do the suggested journaling - it just wasn't natural for us.

I have to say that the dance lessons have been very good for my husband and I. We are workin on something together that we have to actively do together - unlike watching tv together.

I don't know if you've seen the movie fireproof (if you haven't you should) but anyways, the Love Dare is what he did in the movie. it's a 40 day thing and each day they give you something to do for or with your spouse to help you to have a closer marriage and learn to REALLY love your spouse. it teaches about loving unconditionally and how we can't do that on our own. I really think all married couples should do it at some point in their marriage.

Yep. the Lord provides us with many opportunities to get closer to Him and our loved ones, doesn't He? I hope ti works well for you both. DH and I have not started the Love Dare yet. We were supposed to start last Wednesday (Ash Wednesday) but he was too tired to read the intro with me before bed and then left for school trips until tonight. I can't wait to start!

I'm glad the pain from the angioplasty is lessening for your mother. And trust is all we can do, you're right. My friend always says, "God is in charge".

Welcome mel, and thank you for the prayers, she sure needs them. sorry I didn't respond sooner, I've not been online too much the last few days.

Cherly, I'm sorry you're not feeling well and are having braxton Hicks, I have been and will continue to pray for you and your baby daily.

Thank you all for the prayers for my mom. Right now she's doing ok, she's getting past the pain from the angioplasty, but has bronchitis pretty bad, which makes everything more complicated and painful due to all the coughing. She's a little bit concerned, she says that for the first few days she was really scared, but she's putting her trust in the Lord, as we all are, and she's feeling better about it. I am feeling a bit better about it myself, the more I turn to Him the more comfort I find. I also talked to my MIL today and she was telling me how hubbys grandpa had to have the same surgery almost 30 years ago and has been healthier since, and of course in the last 30 years with all they've learned and all the technology available now it's supposed to be even better and safer now. Of course it's still the heart and it's still scary, but she's in the Lords hands.

as for the weather here, it's crazy too, we don't get snow, but it's rainy for 2 or 3 days, pouring yesterday, just drizzling today, but then it's sunny for a day or 2 then rain again. oh well, we need the rain. California's headed into a water crisis now. all of our lakes and rivers are drying up, the lake where I live, used to be one of the most popular tourist attractions in Northern California, and provides water to most other parts of California. but it's too low now, isn't much of an attraction at all and not much water to provide to the rest of the state. So I'm greatful for every inch we get right now.

I got a new magazine today called Purpose Driven Connection, written by Rick Warren. the same guy that did the purpose driven life. and in this edition there is a dvd and study guide for 40 days of love. so as soon as we finish working through the "love dare" Nick and I are going to work through that together. Looks like the Lord's planning on keeping us busy.

Hugs,
Shandy

I actually battled out in it some. I had to go get me a longer pillow to be able to sleep with. I am beginning to have problems now so I hope it helps me out. The flakes were big and coming down hard. It was neat to watch it.

For us we have had snow since lunch and probably have around 6 inches or more on the ground. I has really been pretty watching it snow all afternoon. It's supposed to stop sometime during the morning hours and will only get in the 30"s tomorrow so I am sure it won't melt any. The best thing is the roads are not bad yet and thankful for that.

We got the nasty weather in time for the weekend. Tuesday and Wednesday were pretty nice with above zero temps. Yesterday was warm, but it rained most of the day, was windy and the temp plummeted by about 20 degrees by the evening. Today was gorgeously sunny but was very cold. Just a few more weeks and spring will be here!!

Good Morning team and man is the weather strange around here. Yesterday we were up near 50 but today it supposed to have snow showers with possible 3 to 6 inchs which how knows if we will get it. It's very windy and blustery and I still have to finish my grocery shopping. I just hope we all stay well and don't get sick again. I hope the weather where in your area is better and have a great weekend.

That's a good idea to get checked. Sometimes a urinary tract infection or dehydration can cause more non-productive contrations/Braxton Hicks from the irritation in the urethra area.

My friend had a lot of trouble with an urinary tract infections - it lasted from 16 weeks pregnancy until the baby was 6 weeks old!

Take care!

22 weeks and 3 days

I have them almost daily if I get up and move around much and have had them almost the whole pregnancy but not as bad until now. The heart is really up there and beating pretty good as well. I go back to the doctor next Friday and plan on asking her what she thinks.

Dealing with quite a bit of Braxton Hicks contractions on and off throughout my days. Last night was pretty bad and didn't feel well either. The baby is now up around my belly button and feel like it's about to explode but I am surviving though. It's supposed to snow here tomorrow after having thunderstorms yesterday so the weather is always changing. Trying to get my groceries stocked back up after losing everything we had during the ice storm.

actually, I'm sorry you didn't miss anything I didn't post it, didn't really have the energy to explain to all my groups so I just posted it in my blogs. She was found to have a block in her heart and was getting an angioplasty, when they found that she actually had 3 blockages, and now they're going to be doing a triple bypass next thursday. I've been very concerned and totally freaking out over it and praying more than I have in years. but I haven't been eating because of it, which is a good thing, normally I'd eat myself out of house and home over it.

My sister and I like a local restaurant here in town where we also split a meal so I don't over eat. I really enjoy it too.

Got home about an hour ago from church and lunch afterwards. The preacher talked about obedience to God and how our #1 motivation for obedience should be Jesus' love for us and His obedience to God even to the point of His death on the cross. I think sometimes when I am "rebelling" for whatever reason and I want to do what I want to do and not what He wants, I tend to forget that Jesus didn't WANT to die on that cross either but He did it anyways and that alone should make me want to do what He wants me to do. I know that now I need to work on remembering that instead of thinking about what I'd rather be doing.

as for lunch, I know I should have just eaten what I had at home, but I really wanted Francisco's (a local mexican restaurant owned by the guy who leads our music at church and his family) so we went ahead and went there, but I shared a burrito with my husband instead of having a whole one to myself. I was still full when I was done, and would have eaten the whole thing normally, so it wasn't so bad.

I am hoping that the vein pain eases up for you. I am sure that you wear support hose to help. I know one of the teachers I work with had the same problem during her pregnancies. What we do to have children!!!

They are always some kind of pain or another! LOL But so worth every minute of it. emoticon

Headed to the grocery. Want to make good choices there, since it affects the rest of my week.

I have already been using the ice packs CJ and they help some. Some days are rougher than others and depends if I do alot of moving around on how bad they might be. The are in the legs and the right is worse than the left. I had a huge patch on the back of the right leg that I have had for a few years now but they are beginning to come up on top of the uppper right leg and hurts to have the little ones I keep sit on them. Very uncomfortable but I just put up with them. My hubby was the one concerned and wanted me to call the doctor to make sure. I had already figured out this would be a way of life until I have her.
With his school they never have snow here just rain so they never add snow days in. This is the first ice storm we have had here since 2002 and they didn't miss as many days then as they did this year. I am still not for sure what they plan on doing with the days but sure they will tell us soon. I really wish they would just take the spring break and leave the end of the year where it is at but afraid that won't happen. Have a good Sunday and take care.

I pray that your pains will subside, Cherly. Do you have varicose veins in your legs? I had them between my legs when I was pregnant. I had to sit on ice packs to get some relief! Unfortunately, two of my pregnancies were during the hottest part of summer! Try and get some rest and stay off your feet.

That's too bad about the schools. We get so much snow here that in my memory, we have only ever closed schools (within the city) twice in about 25 years.

I know that some of the school around here will be going into June and some cancelled their spring breaks in March to make them up. Not for sure what the kids school will do. Christopher has bronchitis and will be out again today just to rest. I also plan on calling the doctor with these varicose veins because of the pain they are causing me when I walk. I have never had this an not for sure if it's because I am diabetic or not. Feels like I have huge bruises everywhere and they just ache. I should get me some answers and they will let me know what to do for relief. I have been using ice packs so far and that has helped some. I hope you have a good Friday and thank goodness the weekend is upon us and we can sleep in tomorrow.

Cherly, I'm sorry your having problems due to your pregnancy, I'm praying that you'll be feeling better soon. and that everyone here and their kids will be feeling better with this sickness going around everywhere.

I didn't know that schools added on days at the end of the year for snow days. we don't get snow here, so I never got snow days when I was in school. never even been in enough snow to really know what it's like. but we're hoping to spend a christmas in Kansas soon, with my in-laws I'd be seeing snow then. When I was in Louisiana they had hurricane days at school, where you got off of school because they thought a hurricane was coming, but they didn't add on days at the end of the year.

I hope the flu shot powers-that-be got the formula right this year. I think it was last year that they miscalculated and the most prevalent flus weren't covered in the mixture so many still got sick. Here's hoping you stay flu-free!

I've had a fair number of students out this week with a big. It is that time of the year. I got a flu shot for the first time this year. So far so good!

Hello all and dealing with a child who I think may have strep throat. I tool him to the doctor Monday along with Mikayla who they think had a virus like strep but he was not that bad yet. I am taking him back due to I feel the is getting worse with the coughing and having severe headaches for the past few days and dosing him with motrin just to help him feel better. I sent him this morning because he has a field trip but called the doctor I took him too and he thinks he might have strep but wants me to take him to the pediatricain so they can check him to make sure. It alway seems when it rains it pours on my kids. I was excited today though because one of their teachers had some maternity clothes she give me and was tickled to have them and they actually fit. I can't hardly find maternity clothes around here anymore. Thank goodness for that help. I am really beginning to show with the basketball look now. I now am getting ready and my hopes up for June. Take care all and have a good day out of school Sam.

Here in Arkansas they figure no snow days in the kids school years so I know they will either lose spring break or add on in the end. I am ready to know so I can prepare the kids for it.

Our board adds 5 days that they add or subtract from depending on the number of snow days. We're only going a few extra days at this point. We've missed 8 days so far. Who would have thought that we would have hurricane days on Indiana??? Sometimes the state will authorize making up the first 5 days, then making up 1 for every 3 days after that.

I am just wondering Sam how much the kids school year will be extended due to the ice storm. Some around here are going until June 2nd now. I don't know yet about the kids school. Glad your day went well and for the most part the kids had a good day as well.

Not that we don' t all have faults, but gossip and church just don't go together. Good for your mom for being able to keep it in check. I'm just sorry you weren't heard...

Had a good day at school today. It's hard to believe the school year is 5/8 of the way through already. Time just flies by.

Have a pleasant evening everyone.

Unfortunately there are several people around that like to gossip everywhere. Sorry that it put a hamper on your bible study though. Getting up and trying to get going this morning. With this pregnancy I am really battling varicose veins swelling and making it tough to walk without tons of pressure. My right leg is especially bad and trying to put an ice pack to reduce some of the swelling on them. Very painful as well but I will manage. The kids are up and getting ready for school and it's supposed to be a pretty decent day today until tonight when another cold front moves through and makes it cooler. I hope you all have a good day and Sam take care at school.

just got home from womens bible study, it was not so good as usual, we're studying from a book called "the blessings of friendships" only problem is my mom is sick and she normally leads it, so the lady that leads it tends to get off track a lot so we didn't get much done tonight and we have one lady there, that likes to gossip and stuff and when my mom's there leading she puts a stop to it, the lady leading tonight didn't do that, so of the 1 1/2 hours we were there at least half of it was listening to this lady gossip. I just tuned her out and read my bible while I was waiting to get back on track. I know tuning her out sounds rude, but I didn't know what else to do, I tried to mention that is not what we were there for, but she just told me to butt out, just cuz my mom wasn't there didn't make me God so it was kind of irritating
