What is this thread about?



Once upon a time, things got quiet here on the weekends, so a thread was started to just hang out and do a virtual crop. Since then it's grown into more. Several people are now "regular," but we're always open to newcomers. We chat about anything and everything. (Warning: Sometimes we stray into areas that may be considered "adult," although we always try to be tasteful about it.) We share our latest layouts, pictures, whatever interests us. We have fun and encourage each other.

It's now all week long, too. Since it is a new thread each week, it's easier for anyone to join. Even though we start over each week, it's STILL pages and pages long. Don't be intimidated, we are happy to have anyone drop by and say hello. Some of us read all the replies and keep up, but it is not required. Warning: It can get addictive!

VCW Yahoo! Group

This is a place where we can store info - email addresses, geographical locations, birthdays. (We started this because we wanted to know who we have to go looking for after major events such as the recent hurricanes in the U.S.)

Sign up for the group. You have to be approved for the group. There are a few people around here to keep an eye on the admin of the list, so the approval shouldn't take too long. The approval process isn't because we're elitist or anything - it's just our way of making sure that those who have access to our info there are "known" to us and not just people signing up randomly to farm the information. The purpose of this site is to store emergency contact information for the members of our group. Please be respectful of its intended use and do not abuse the information.

Once you're approved, you can add your info to the database and/or your birthday to the calendar. If you need help with either of these functions, just yell and someone here will give you instructions.

Most of us also really love BLING and encourage bling usage...some to the point of "pimping" but hey, whatever gets the blingy point across!

And I'll move this over since it's too good to be missed.....



Wanted to grab your attention. Did it work?

For those of you who have listened to the trials and travails of ESD...if you would like to "meet" him in person...

(I can't believe I'm even saying this)

He & Wifey will be on Dr. Phil next week. Yes, Dr. Phil. I believe it will be Tuesday's show. (NOTE: Now confirmed according to web site.) According to the local grapevine, the topic will be young couples getting a divorce while having young children. (NOTE: Also confirmed since web site is updated.)

If you would like a preview...

(This is new info, btw.)

Go to the Dr. Phil home page. As of Friday, the first thing that comes up is about Friday's show with the Kardashians.

If you go to the lower right corner, "forward" and "backward" arrows will light up when you move your cursor over them. Go TWO CLICKS BACK to the panel about the "Young Wives Club." Where it says "Tuesday Click Here," click it and you'll get a video/commercial teaser for that day's show.

Ummm...ESD & Wifey are the ones talking about him lying all the time. (Which is hysterical to me, because one thing Kim wondered was whether or not they would talk about his compulsive lying.)

Thank you thank you!

And now, since I need to be up in slightly less than 5 hours, I'm going to head to bed. It has been quite an eventful afternoon/evening here.

Don't know if/when I'll have a chance to check in tomorrow. Might not be until tomorrow night if there's some down time at work. But I'll see you all eventually. This has been a fun week, hanging with y'all more-or-less in real time.

Thanks for starting the thread, Jenni.

I hope that the show will not affect Kim in any way, except maybe provide her with a good laugh.

I know that Ethan has a great mom and grandparents and even uncles and aunts (are they still in touch after Ethan's half-brother was born.. is that the right term, half-brother)? In a way, I hope he doesn't learn about ESD.. or that he won't be hurt by the knowledge of him.

Everytime I hear a program talking about adopted kids, my heart race faster, I'm so easy to cry. I can't explain it.. just something..

It's like when those ladies who were curious why I was sad about my adoption, I am almost incapable of explaining it. If affects me. Should it? Maybe not. I've got loving parents and a great childhood. Now I've got my own family. But I can't tell you why it's profoundly shaken me up. Turned my world upside down, even though it shouldn't?

I pray that this will not affect Ethan. That he will be sad, maybe, about his dad's loss (of not knowing Ethan), but may he not be affected and may he always be thankful for the great people he has in his life and be blessed by that.

I am working on the MOST FLOWERY LO I've EVER done!

And probably with the most frenzy stamping!

And waiting to see if my coworker offshore has signed off on the request. She's having a mtg right now about this, and she promised me she'll sign off and asked me to go to bed! She knows how crazy I am.

But I just wanna know! I'm just crazy!

So I"m still here.

Cathy and Liz - you know how close I am to the NH border....couple of minutes.

For those that don't know, (at the risk of repeating myself to the others) Once I'm in NH, it is only another 15 minutes to Maine. So the trip only takes me 15-17 minutes to be in three different states.

I know I've said it before but, I really LOVE my little corner of the world!



I love that corner of the world too! 'cept for the snow!!

I'm only a little farther away than you are, Pat. It takes me a little over an hour to get to Maine from here. I also used to go to Maine and VT for the day on a whim.



Psssttt...hubby started looking at the map last night and started planning our route...
We're motorcycling to Bar Harbour! And we just need to find the least pain in my rear way to get there!
and lookey lookey lookey...Manchester's just about where we're gonna be lookin to stop for the night....didn't you say there's a hotel right down the street?




WHEN?? Love me some Bar Harbor! Great hiking in Acadia! If we could swing it for a weekend we could meet up there. Or maybe further south on the Maine Coast and get Pat & Liz for a bit too???

The support group meeting last night was interesting. The speaker was disappointing. They were only trying to market their center. Didn't really answer people's questions very well. I had to salvage the meeting about an hour earlier than a speaker would normally end - but I managed to get everyone discussing great stuff!!

And we had the largest turnout I've seen in all my years. 50+ people!!!

Well except for the meeting when I got the county reps, state senators/reps and federal reps/senators there.

So I was filling DH in on how peaceful the mornings have been. How well the boys have done and what great help they have been this week....

... he says "so what are you telling me? That I'm the cause of all the mayhem?"

Exactly!

And I didn't actually say that he causes the mayhem. I just said that it was a great week! I can't help what he inferred from that message

Probably some time in June, maybe mid to late June. Not sure yet. Just starting to plan. Trying to decide whether to take part of the Friay off and ride the fisrt couple hours on Friday and spend the first night in PA somewhere, then on to Manchester, then Bar Harbor on day 3...or leave early Saturday and have to ride further. We've done up to 700 miles or so in day before. Two summers ago when we went to PA we rode out to Bald Eagle state park? I think, we stopped at 5 or 6 and I lost track. We've been to Coudersport/Wellsboro twice, we can do that in 5 hours...but hubby really likes Worlds End State Park.

Still planning. I will keep you all posted I am sure.

As long as you don't cause yourself undo stress.




No stress here. hahahahahaha
Working on HUGE work project for AdvancED accredation visit at the end of this month. I have two quarterly assessments to give and score in the next week. Just finished the GT testing process with my class. Working on publishing 19 literacy fair books by TOMORROW! Report cards are due in a week. I have 3 ACR's to write reports for and attend. Now two albums to do and I just went to the doctor yesterday and she thinks 1. my thyroid is acting up or 2. the antibiotics I've been on have killed my kidneys...temporarily, hopefully. I'm on a water pill and lost 7 pounds last night.


Oh my gosh...I'd better learn to spell accreditation before our accreditation!


First off I'm tired just reading that! And second, I can NEVER spell that word! And my life revolves around getting my company, and keeping my company, ready for it at all times!

In fact, they just put out two really nice brochures. I'll send you those when I send you the money for the pin.
I know they have a big office in Phili and are huge all over the Mass area. well...our corporate office is in Peabody.

But I also know that the main keeper of the corporate image has a system set up to do a Google search or something and pull up every time someone types our name online.
Now....explain to me why anyone would mention the company they work for on a PORN site?! But one of our former employees did!

One of the different hats that I wear at work is Search Engine Management and Optimization. it is astounding where your company name can get mentioned. And what terms people use to search for you.

where are you moving to?




Grove City...so I'll be much closer to work. Instead of a 45 minute to an hour drive it should only take me about 15 to 20 minutes depending on traffic

I wish I could come help you Susan. I just don't know if I could take any more on this week.




I'm touched that you would even want to come help! Thanks, Elizabeth! When we get completely moved in I would love for you to come see my new place.

The newest from his dad is that he wants us to leave the curtains. My mother paid for the material and made these curtains for me...but he would like us to leave them for him.

They are totally going with us...DH had suggested leaving them before and I told him no. Those are our curtains...and they will fit in the windows of our new place. Plus my mother said no, as well. She made them, she can take them back.

Actually most of them could be packed tonight cause there are also blinds up. The only room that doesn't have blinds is our bedroom. Good idea, Liz. They are coming down tonight!

I don't feel happy. Does that mean I didn't?

I'm hoping these will sell. We need to raise money.



How much are you selling them for?



$5. We sold quite a few last night. Hoping we'll sell more at the resource fair at the end of the month.


I'll mail you the money if you save one for me!



Cathy - Please save me one also! I will get the money in the mail to you!

it's not funny! well actually he guessed pretty close to what the total was...
but his visit yesterday was his "checkup", his bloodwork (test for heartworms, etc), his 4 vaccines, a prednisone tab to counteract that, and his meds.....$260.

Still cheaper than my KIDS, but ya can't turn it into the FSA for a tax deduction!

I went into shock when I took my moms dog to the vet for all his shots and stuff. Thank goodness I had her credit card and it didn't come out of my pocket.

I just got some bad news about my poor sister.

She was just diagnosed with Spina Bifida.

Like dad said it's a birth defect but as a child she never complained about any kind of back problems but after she had Cierra all of a sudden she was having all kinds of problems. They think the pregnancy aggravated the condition.

Next will be test to find out how much nerve damage and then she'll probably have surgery.

I hope that the show will not affect Kim in any way, except maybe provide her with a good laugh.

I know that Ethan has a great mom and grandparents and even uncles and aunts (are they still in touch after Ethan's half-brother was born.. is that the right term, half-brother)? In a way, I hope he doesn't learn about ESD.. or that he won't be hurt by the knowledge of him.

Everytime I hear a program talking about adopted kids, my heart race faster, I'm so easy to cry. I can't explain it.. just something..

Turned my world upside down, even though it shouldn't?

I pray that this will not affect Ethan.



That's what I'm hoping. I did write to the Dr. Phil show last night, asking for reassurances about what is going to be aired. We'll see if I get an answer.

Oh yes, the aunts and uncles are definitely still in Ethan's life. Not as much as we would like, since both sets now have babies of their own (Aunt Heather gave birth to Cousin Chloe just last week), but everyone is still on excellent terms. Of course, none of them ever speak to their brother.....

Shirley, of course finding out you were adopted would turn your world upside-down. It meant that everything you assumed during the whole time you were growing up was wrong. That kind of news will leave its mark on anyone. I think the big difference there between your situation and my husband's is that he grew up knowing he'd been adopted, so there was never the "shock" moment.

Never think that your feelings are wrong. They are right...for you...at the time...under the circumstances.


I am not worried about Ethan at this point. This show being on will not affect him. If he even gets to SEE the show (which I strongly doubt), he has no idea who that person is. He won't know that they relate in any way to him.

(Wow. A Rainbow Recap just for one post.)

We tried to warn you about snow=evil and how if you wish for it once it's all over because the snow sees an invitation and then keeps coming back uninvited.
