Re: Child's Birthday Party RSVP

Seeing as how I have a wedding RSVP that was supposed to be returned by the 16th...feel free to ignore me. I'd put another note in the cubbies. All of the bday parties we've done wthe kids have had our phone number/email to rsvp to, and about 1/2 or better, don't. A couple times I've gotten no's, an...

Re: at what size would you switch to a CS

My original ering from Kay's was similar to the ones Gypsy posted. I'd never seen anyone w/a CS for an ering at that time. Well..Princess Di, but she was a princess so I never thought to do anything other than a diamond.

Re: Do you regrets having kids?

I always thought I'd be a mother when I was younger, but by the time I met my husband, I was pushing 37 and my perspective had changed tremendously. We consciously decided not to have children. I'm nearly 49 now, and despite declarations from tons of people that I will eventually regret it, I have ...

I'd eat that naughty carrot but I'd not have anything to do w/that Nightmare Orange. That's like..from Hellraiser. If Pinhead had an orange, that would be it. It waits for me under my bed.

Re: Do you regrets having kids?

My brother will never have kids, even tho he wants them. His wife will never allow it. And if there happened to be an oops I'm pretty sure he'd end up a single dad. It makes me feel bad. I think he's pretty resigned to not being a daddy. So..I have to content myself with drumming my fingers on the t...

Re: baby name re:SS list and popularity

I kinda think we're screwed no matter what. I hated my name when I was growing up. My mom spelled it different, Missi instead of Missy. Pissy Missi. Messy Missi. Ugh.

Re: food prices..no jobs..

I can't get out of the grocery store for under $100. Generally it's about $125-$150, weekly. That's not counting pet food, cat litter, shampoo, etc. Milk is 4 something a gallon, the good 93% hamburger is 5 something a pound.

Thanks Minou! Ha, Monnie, wouldn't that be something? I would totally cheese out if there were acknowledgement from a magazine!

Re: Do you regrets having kids?

I think the "hard" part about being a parent, is the things that go along w/it. The decisions and the judgement. Stay at home, go back to work. Nurse or formula. Co sleep or own bed. The list is never ending. Not sleeping. Eating cold food. Never having enough time in the day or hands/arms...

You can mess w/some stuff on Gemvara maybe, see if that helps? you won't be able to choose the exact setting you're looking at (well, I dunno, I've only ever played with the eternity bands).

No. Sometimes I tell them we're selling them to the gypsy's. Sometimes JD and I argue over where these kids came from. Sometimes we tell them they didn't come as ordered. "Hmmm...I'm not sure I ordered a sassypants little girl...lemme find my sheet...yep, see, right here, I clearly marked NO fo...

Re: Packrat's yard pics 2014

sarahb, yeah the trumpet vine is a bit bossy-there's currently about 5 little babies sprouting up in our yard that got mowed down for the pics.

Shoot, I was going to mention, in the front tub bed, the old metal pump and tub are actually a working water feature. The water collects under the rocks next to the flowers in the tub and cycles back up and out the pump. And in the back, that honeysuckle stump bed right off the back deck-the galvani...

Re: Packrat's yard pics 2014

sarahb, the plant on the pole is the neighbors trumpet vine! It's sprouted up about 40 babies so far...we've put a few in the back along the fence behind the tank to see if they will climb up the fence back there, green up that corner. I like that they put it there b/c it looks like it's in our yard...
