  1. Cheryl – He has one of those, but it doesn’t seem to help with this particular symptom. (They’ve tried more than one kind, of course.)

  2. I am not getting outside as much as I would like but I like what I am doing. We don’t leave baby unattended (napping in playpen for example) due to the predatory nature of some of the other children. Makes it rather challenging to get other stuff done but it is okay to not get it done.

  3. Mumsee – Do you worry that when those with the predatory tendencies grow up and leave, they will eventually abuse other children?

  4. My aide told me yesterday that she will be gone next week on Thursday and Friday, but Friday is a teacher workday. Our entire staff of employees is attending a Trauma healing workshop. With fighting between groups and other things, I am sure that it is needed. She was so tired the other day. A friends mother had died and they all get together to mourn most of the night in a haus cri.

  5. I plan on going to the weight room later today with a friend who just returned for a month. Not sure how much to do since I injured myself the last time.

  6. Kizzie, yes. That is why we try to work with the school and the sheriff dept to keep them apprised of the issues. But, of course, the children are so nice and pleasant and social, it is difficult to see until you have worked with them for a while. Then you start to notice things and then adding them up. People want the best from each other.

  7. I was very careful. Only lifted one 1 kilo weight and just did 10 reps. Other than that I did a mile on the elliptical and did 20 situps. No weights really.

  8. The evening service was a hymn sing tonight, so I thought that I would go. However my car had other ideas as it wouldn’t start. Pretty obvious that it was the battery. I will probably buy a new one tomorrow.

  9. Sounds like grandson’s dad will be coming this weekend, staying a few days, then taking baby home on Thursday. That will be good.

  10. Made it through crazy Thursday. My class had PE and library after lunch. When I went to pick them up in the library they were doing great, but the workers were gone. Huh! I spent all morning not even going to the bathroom so as not to leave my class alone and then I found them alone in the library.

  12. did I mention that several depressed folks have been asked to leave and get help? They need help and it is a good decision, but hard.

  13. Lots of rain today Too bad seventeen did not bring her laundry in off the line. Well, it should be well rinsed.

  14. It seems like the little one just got there. But I am sure it has been a long time for you.
    Maybe this was practice for the next little one coming your way. So glad that you finally got her to the doctors.

  15. okay, I just booked a trip to Cairns for over the break. It was getting very tricky. They didn’t have any room on the flights on the days that I wanted to travel. so I kept looking and looking. Then emailed to ask if there was room at the missionary hotel in Cairns. They had room, but I will have to switch to a two bedroom place for the last two days. Not quite as cheap but the exchange rate is good and this place is cheap.

  16. We are a bit concerned that he is going home so quickly but he does belong with them. He is actually the least of my challenges here. A very happy easy going baby for the most part.

  17. Husband left last night to go pick up son in law. They should be back this evening and we will be done with most of our part as we hand him back to daddy. That will be good to see.

  18. That baby has certainly done some traveling. I hope you took lots of pictures, because it is doubtful that he will remember this trip.

  19. Must have been nice to hold and cuddle a baby again. When The Boy was a baby, I couldn’t get enough of him.

  20. It was, and he is on his way again. He did not cuddle much but loves to sit next to his person. Really wants to be standing up and running.

  21. Baby has been on the road or in the skies for close to twenty four hours now. Another six hours until he lands and then off to the house.

  22. wow, this doing two miles in a half hour on the elliptical really wears me out. I don’t do any resistance, so it is just keeping my legs moving for 30 minutes. I sure need a shower afterwards.

  23. so funny to be talking to my self on here as the emails come to me.

    how are you doing, Mumsee. Have things settled down there at all? I think you said something about more family coming?

  24. Hi Jo, I have been getting out for my morning walk as the bike no longer seems to fit the schedule. By getting up between four and five, I have time to walk for about thirty to forty minutes, it is a start and a very nice one at that. Such a beautiful area and such a beautiful time of day.

  25. Yes, more family arriving today. Daughter and son in law and two grands coming up from Boise. Two year old and one year old. Should be fun! They plan to redo the cupboards in the kitchen: painting and adding hardware. I told them I was in no hurry as I still have some quite destructive children to get through but it is a gift from them and we will enjoy it.

  26. Twenty two year old daughter continues to tell some incredible stories and we continue to not believe any of them, though we no longer mention that to her. It will come. Husband did tell her yesterday that he is not interested in hearing about all the raves she has attended. He reminded her that he has always told them nothing good happens after ten. But he did not ask if she got pregnant at that time.

    She continues to work around the place and seems to have a good attitude ever since that one extraordinary evening. Hopefully, she is not doing any illegal activity. She only leaves home in our care but if she had her friend deliver something, we would not know.
