    Oh my, that does sound pretty scary gaamy!!

    Friends. Rumors go around about every year, but the actors have been pretty clear that it won’t ever happen.

    I imagine it was terrifying having family as close as NJ!

    I was working as a phlebotomist (person who draws blood) at the city hospital. I caught word from a patient and then saw the second plane hit live in a patient’s room. I was able to stay up to date on what was going on during the rest of my shift via patient tvs, and then went home and glued myself to the tv like everyone else, I’m sure.

    We usually splurge on the winter coats (though her current one is one I scored on clearance a couple years ago, which doesn’t help you now). It’s definitely wise to buy it a little big so you can get 2-3 winters out of it. I’ve found that Sears has really good quality coats and they will have some great sales. I’d expect to see winter gear arriving in stores within the next few weeks.

    As for snow pants, we don’t splurge there. I buy them at Target or Walmart and they’re usually under $20. We’ve found that the overall kind tend to work better than the pants. They stay up without much hassle, and they keep your kid completely sealed off from snow even if their coat rides up. It’s worth the extra little bit of bulk. I’m not sure I’d go with the rain pants if you’re expecting very many cold days.

    I would only buy hiking boots if they are completely water proof (water “resistant” is worthless in snow). Snow boots are bulky and ugly, but they are worth their weight in gold when out in the snow. I usually get Morgan’s at Meijer, which is a chain store similar to Target. I look for the lightest pair I can find.

    I know it all seems like a lot of bulk, and it is, but kids adapt to it quickly. And if we get another winter remotely similar to last winter, you can’t be too prepared with warm winter items! Honestly, what Morgan hates the absolute most is winter gloves. For kids the choices seem to be either those stretchy kinds you can get for .99 that get soaked in seconds, or huge ones that they can’t even move their fingers in. So I started buying her women’s XS as soon as she could fit in them halfway decently.

    Morgan’s Skechers have always held up pretty well, and they have lots of cute styles that may go well with dresses.

    I took care of it! Most spam actually gets caught before it goes live on the site, but once in awhile some posts slip through.

    I rarely eat much of a breakfast, or any breakfast, unless we’re out and about on the weekend. I may have toast and a yogurt if I feel empty. But usually too much food upsets my stomach the first few hours I’m up.

    I love to cook breakfast food for dinner though!

    I take care of my underarms and around the bikini area year-round. I only shave my legs when it’s shorts/capris weather. I’m very fortunate to have fine, light, slow-growing hair on my legs so even in the summer I only have shave once or twice a week.

    Sometimes I take the shaver to my little unibrow when I don’t feel like plucking, but grows back so quickly that way. I’m scared to wax! I probably should though.

    It got down in the 40′s last night. I love when it’s cold at night and still in the 70′s and 80′s during the day! After tomorrow our highs are only going to be in the 60′s. I always enjoy the beginning of fall, bringing the jeans and hoodies back out. But then it leads to winter…. Boo.

    It can be tricky to get the right size! They suggest the larger sized cups for women who have given birth and/or are over 30, but that didn’t work so well for me with the Diva. I may have been okay with their smaller one but I’ll stick with my Lunette.

    I went to school with a boy who had a really large area of his face affected. I don’t think they started to remove it until he was in jr high or high school. But I don’t know much about it.

    What I do know is that you should never hesitate to get a second (or third!) opinion if you feel like you need more information or feel even the slightest bit doubtful about the care you are receiving! I’ve switched my daughter’s pediatrician twice, and when I had serious skin problems in my young adult years it took 4 dermatologists for me to finally receive the care I wanted/needed, so I don’t regret it for a second!

    This must have gotten buried! lol

    We didn’t do anything exciting at all. My husband was sick, and Morgan is so tired from the first few weeks of school. It was really nice to not have plans or anywhere we had to be!

    That does sound pretty silly. I could see them not wanting candy or gum passed out, but stickers?

    TS, you may try a different cup if the Diva didn’t work for you, if you’re wanting to find something that is reausable. I got mixed up before, I have a Lunette, not a La Luna. The Lunette is a billion times better than the Diva Cup, imo. It’s not nearly as deep (I have to completely trim off the stems on all of them), and it seals instantly with no finagling.

    Sorry for the OT posting, lilybell! I’m a bit of a menstrual cup fanatic. Best things since sliced bread, I swear. You couldn’t pay me to use a tampon again.

    That’s awesome! How nice to have a teacher who is so proactive in helping your daughter!

    YW, I used ricotta, fresh mozzarella and parm. I have half of the cheese and spinach mixture in the freezer and I just may be making it again tonight! Soooo yummy.

    Yeah, exercise/activity usually helps me more than anything else! Usually I’ll make myself do some deep cleaning and kill 2 birds with 1 stone. I get horrific cramps every other month or so and no OTC meds help at all, and I loathe the way hormonal birth control makes me feel.

    I’ve read in many reviews of menstrual cups (I have tried the Diva Cup, Moon Cup, and La LunaCup) that they have helped ease cramps for women. I don’t know that I’ve noticed a difference in my years but I do love my cups! :)

    I guess I better snag one too! I’m sure Morgan will jump on the bandwagon if she starts hearing about them. lol The one my cousin got had 3 or 4 puppies and she was so excited because the one she got as a kid only had 1 in it.

    She keeps herself trucking along in the mornings. We used to have battles, but 2 years ago I instituted a rule that she’d have to pay me a dollar if she misses the bus because of her dawdling and I have to take her. She’s never had to pay me. :)

    Third grade is really big here, too. They have their first year of I-STEP (Indiana standardized tests) testing and there’s a relatively new reading test called I-Read that they have to pass to move on to 4th grade. It’s a lot of pressure!

    And of course her school fell for Common Core Math a couple years ago, and that’s what we’re stuck with for now. Homework takes twice as long as it should because while she knows how to solve math problems fairly quickly in her head, the way the book wants her to do it confuses her (and me!) to death. It’s the first book in my life I’ve ever wanted to toss in a bonfire.
