You need to see the mirror in order to SEE why you have to smack yourself!

Why do you think something is wrong with us Farmwife? Isn't everyone trolling Crohns forums at 9:00 on a Saturday (isn't that in a song by Billy Joel)

Oh, Crohnsinct, she just doesn't understand you, she's not able to give you that emotional support you need! And, it doesn't matter how much you do, it's just never enough! All her talk about sweet apple blossoms



Aww, but I can imagine how hard it is for you to be at the church fair, eating your pizza and sugared dough and forcing down that cab while your poor little baby is nursing herself as best she can! You're doing the right thing... making her a stronger person, a more independent person who can take care of herself! (Think, think, think... there must be some reason you need to be driving by that exit!! )

And, yep, listening to that same Billy Joel song here!

Weekends are when I can catch up here.... I peek now and then on my phone at work and at the end of the night during the week. A year ago, I would not have thought this was how I would spend a Sat nite

YES! Driving by that exit on our way to and from infusion tomorrow. On our way back we will stop and drop off a care package and maybe if I am really, really lucky she will fit us in to her very busy schedule and let us take her out for a bite to eat. It is an awkward time but come on Italian and in college...won't turn down food and especially if it is free. Here's hoping she has an appetite and the cold hasn't ruined my big chance!

Beating you all - spending quality time with my gorgeous boy while catching up with the forum on the laptop. Talk about multitasking
Slightly concerned by the smell of burning meat from downstairs - yes I am making a meal from scratch - steak pie, but been too busy on this forum to go check it!
Oh well - my husband says it's not a meal I've made without the house fire alarm going off

Farmwife: candy at school? Definitely not clean!

Saw G today. She looks great. We had a quick meal together. It was adorable though watching her sisters just gab away so excitedly telling her their stories each vying for her attention. T told her that one day she went up to her room and cried and sometimes goes up there so she could smell her.

When we dropped her off it was a tear fest. She said , "See? this is why I don't come home and don't want you to visit. It is too hard to say good bye all over again" She broke my heart.

But yes, it was great seeing her. I may see her again next Wednesday...I bribed her with shopping! She isn't a princess but desperately needs some new shirts she says. Yay!

If one is afraid Tesscorm that's good sign to not ask.


I'm feeling better from the flu.
Three days and no body cleaned!
Good night to all.
Think of me as I'm ironing to 1 am this morning.


No call from the doc today.

So tomorrow is O's 13th birthday and she is leaving on a retreat with the youth group. She requested unclean brownies. For some reason my girls are convinced their dad makes better brownies than me. For years we have used the same box. They say he has a special ingredient. Yeah, he doesn't cook them all the way so they are mushy! Anyway, O is licking the leftover batter in the bowl. Sure sweetheart...you go ahead and lick that raw egg batter with your suppressed immune system...I don't care what you all say I am NOT giving back my mother of the year award! And tell DCF to come tomorrow morning because I am drinking my wine right now!
