So sorry to hear about your bad luck Moxy! I really hope that your friend pulls through too. I'll keep him in my prayers!

Welcome to the group Baby_Griffin! How cool that you got a wii! We love ours :)

My friends...they tell me he's doing better. He definitively responded to something I said, but...I really hope he pulls through. THey wouldn't allow babies in the ICU (which makes sense, but they said that kids were allowed in special circumstances adn she is closer to him than anyone- it's also odd to me that the two folks who work around middle schoolers are fine, but the kid who stays at home with limited germs is not ::shrug:: ah well).

My husband's laptop was stolen, so was my mom's GPS. Someone went around the neighborhood. This is his school laptop. It's been pretty sucky round here.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. We took Jacob to the children's museum in Cincinnati yesterday, and had a blast. Back to reality today with the first shift of 3 in a row in thE ER. Had a fairly calm day, which means I'm going to get my but kicked either tomorrow or Monday!

Moxy, hope your friend is doing better.
BabyGriffin, welcome to the group :)

Moxyjones - Ah so sorry to hear about your friend. When feeling crappy, you're right, sometimes it does feel nice to eat pizza and brownies. That was me last night with a bowl of chicken alfredo with penne and cheese, ouf!

I could not believe it, we've been looking for a Wii fit for the past 3 months and my parents in law found one! So they brought it today!!! I was so excited! I've played with it before, my sister has one and all I could think of is I want to get my avatar slimmer! Anyway I had some fun with it today and hopefully will play it a lot with the workouts I'm already doing and lose a bunch of weight :)

Was feeling crappy and bummed yesterday so I ended up eating pizza, wine, half a steak sandwich, more pizza, brownies...ugh. I feel emotionally better, but I'm not looking forward to the scale. Blarg indeed.

My friend is still in the hospital- not doing as badly as he was and they want people to talk to him and bring him back essentially. He is very close to my 21 month old so that is where we're going today. Fun rainy Saturday...

Hey there ladies,
finally back and trying to stick with it this time. I've come back to get my butt into gear. I have a 8.5 month old son who I just adore, he's a total sweetheart. Now I just really have to lose my extra weight. I find it hard, especially at night after the baby's gone to bed. I'll have snacks with my husband and know that I maybe shouldn't be eating what I am eating.
I've just started last Monday so hopefully with some support and help from the site I'll be able to lose all the weight by September (time I go back to work).

Good Morning and Happy Friday! It's yet another dreary day today...It started off as flurries, and now is just rain. I wish we could see some sun! I miss my lunchtime walks at the lake!

My Dad arrived from NJ yesterday. He is planning a "buffet" at our house tonight...I was thrilled to hear that since the plan was to go out somewhere. He thinks it will be better to get everyone together at my house so Bella can play in her "natural environment", which I think is just great! I have to decide what the buffet will consist of though...

Moxy-Sounds like a good reason to write your game! I think it's very cool. A friend of mine used to do something similar...he didn't write them, just participated in them. But he raved about it. I hope everything works out the way you want it to :)

Gabby-I'm so glad to hear that you are staying home with the kids until after the new baby comes :) You get to focus on the best job in the world-being a mommy! How are you feeling pregnancy wise? Are your two little ones excited for the new baby?

We're expecting rain all weekend, but I hope to get to Valley Forge with friends from Boston when they come down next weekend (yay!). I'm really feeling the lack of yoga at this point- with a toddler and puppy in the house anytime I get on the floor I am totally pounced ::sigh::. Someday I'll lock everyone out and do it.

The game is being aired, as it were, at Relaxicon in DE April 17th. As for _why_ I'm doing it...I really have no idea. My plan is to do a three-day Shakespeare in a few years and I want to make sure that I can write an 8 hour first, but...I guess I like coming up with stuff and then watching people do crazy things with it? Trying to answer this is the first time I realise that this is a passion to tell a story that is the same as people writing books or whatever but I want people to interact with the story more than you can with a linear predestined book. I dunno, I'll have to think on that...

When I was at the end of my pregnancy I found myself going for walks in the near by civil war era cemetary a lot. It was very relaxing and quiet.

Good luck! Happy Friday!
-Moxy

Happy Thursday soon to be Friday!

Ashley: That stinks about having more snow, in Ohio we had a 65 degree day! It was awesome!!!

Moxy: Good luck with your game, it sounds like a lot of fun too!


I finally got called back about that job, and I decided after going back and forth about it, that I was not able to take it. I know that if I would have taken it, I would have been really stressed b/c of all the pre term issues, they were very understanding and told me that I should reapply when they post new positions in June! So, that is fantastic news!!! Now that I'm not stressed about working right now, I probably will go past my due date. I feel so much better, all I have to do now is just be a stay at home mom! this might be the only time that I will have this much time off without the stress of work, and taking care of so much other junk!


Exercise wise, I got in two separate one mile walks!

Love this spring like weather, I know it will get cold again, but for now its soo nice!!!

Sounds like a lot of work! So are you doing it just for fun? And where will the game take place once you have it done?

It's cause I'm a big geek...people will always come up with a more rational project for what I'm doing if I don't tell them ::grin::.

I'm writing a Live Action Role Playing game for 22 people (plus GMs)- think of it as a combination acting-improv (you are given a character and motivations and you are trying to protray that person) and a Murder Mystery Dinner party where you have a plot and information that you are trying to learn while playing that character.

However, it's me trying to entertain 22+ adults for 8 hours. LOTS of infomation to create and write and make sure makes some sort of sense. In a couple of years I intend to work on a three-day game! Eek!

So, the answer is "I'm a geek" ::grin::

We're having more snow today :( We really thought we were done with it, and then woke up this morning to it coming down fast! It's just above freezing, temperature wise, so hopefully it won't stick much, but it is still coming down.

I did a mid-week weigh in this morning, and I'm down 1.2 lbs from my start weight on Saturday. WOOHOO! My goal for the week was 1 lb, so now I'm hoping to see 1.5 by Saturday morning :)

Jeni-Glad to hear Jacob is feeling better. I bet it's adorable hearing him yell delicious! And thanks for reminding me about the time change-I didn't even realize it was coming up. Yikes!

Moxy-I feel silly for asking, but what is it that you are working on? I hear you talk about writing quite often, but I guess I never knew what it is...

Delicious! that is an awesome word to learn! Cordelia known "nom nom nom" since that's what we would say while feeding her, though this morning she did say that she would like to eat. Verbs!!

Yesterday I printed out well over 100 pages of character sheets. Time for the first hardcopy edit trying to make sure I haven't forgotten anything. If I can get it done before next week I have someone who will read through it all and tell me if it makes sense outside of the context of my brain- one month to go, here's hoping!

Have a lovely day- we're getting to the point of rain here, I missed all the lovely weather. But I am back to my (Hpgwarts!) jean jacket, so I'm happy enough.

Have fun!

Hi everyone. Jacob is over his croup and his appetite is back. He learned to say the word "delicious" and now he pounds on his tray and yells it when I'm not feeding him fast enough. It's kinda cute :)

I've been keeping up with tracking calories and working out. Still loving the Leslie Sansone videos. We also got a stroller walk in on Sunday, and am still hoping to get one today. Looking forward to the time change and buying an extra hour of daylight in the evening to walk!

Hello :) I'm doing ok here. Went to the gym today and yesterday. I've been feeling pretty tired lately, but I've been making myself stick with it. Things are REALLY picking up at work, and I find myself getting behind on work since I spend so much time on this site! lol I need to work on being more efficient so I don't have that problem anymore. My Dad is heading here for a visit tomorrow...He'll be here for about 5 days, so I'm really looking forward to that! I haven't seen him since November.

Gabby-Congrats on the potty training progress! I hope the DVDs are good :)

Moxy-Allergic to apples? I didn't know that was possible, but I guess it's good that you know and can avoid them!

hello all!

congrats on the potty training! we've decided to not even think about additional kids until she's out of diapers.

I may be allergic to apples I discovered today. Very disconcerting (yes, I know that they are one of the foods that you supposedly can't be allergic to- my dad has been allergic forever and I asked him what his reaction was and it was the exact same one I had and thought was a cold).

My #s are even! Still lots of writing to do, but getting somewhere!

Hello Ladies!!!

Sorry to get this up and going so late in the week!
Hope everyone has had a great week so far, I have been having a lot of contractions, so I have been trying to take things as easy as possible, I still have 11 weeks to go! The weather has been so much nicer, it just puts everyone in a great mood.

Really great news on the potty training front, my daughter has finally said, that she has to go and went, no issues. So...I'm hoping this is a step in the right direction.

I got some prenatal dvd's from the library so I'm going to try those and see if they are good or not.

Have a great day everyone!
