Hidden Journaling Reads -
I'm ever so proud of the woman she is becoming, but once in a while, I wish she could stay little and still fit in my lap. Don't get me wrong, she still SITS in my lap - she just doesn't FIT there anymore.

I miss the little girl more than the big girl will ever know or understand. The young woman in the picture may disagree, but in my heart I know that she'll always be my baby and need her momma - even if it's just a little bit.

They would be Bon Bons...

Because I got asked today if I sat on the couch all day and ate Bon Bons. So I thought I would bring some of those Bon Bons I am accused of eating into reality in some way, if only through a picture in my avatar.

It was crazy forum drama. By far the weirdest day ever for me on scrapbook.com

Whew, ACU. I didn't get anything done yesterday so the rest of my Geagua Lake photos are still sitting on my desk and I didn't get the daily challenge done yet. Maybe today I'll have some time...I can't believe how much this challenge really motivates me and gets me scrapping!

oh no... bon bons have made it here too. I guess it is only appropriate that discussion would find its way back to the challenge forum. One of the absolutely most bizarre things ever... and yet I still find myself refreshing to see what happens next.

Jade, there's a thread in the General Scrapbooking forum asking about polls. This person has another account on Scrapbook.com, but at first denied it. She was pegged from the get-go by another girl, and then things spiraled from there. She said something about people not being able to track her IP because there were 400 people in her office building or some such nonsense and several of them also use sb.com. So I wondered (in print) how her employer would feel to know she was paid to surf the web all day. The person asked if I sat on the couch eating bon bons all day.

Anyway, it was a bizarre thread, and it is still there this morning, surprisingly. If you have the time, witness the train wreck for yourself but I don't recommend commenting at all. A few others dug their claws in, but sometimes being "right" isn't always the best, kwim?

Well, shoot. I got to work today, got ready to post the daily challenge, then got a message to talk to the boss, and by the time I got back to it, I'd forgotten that I hadn't done it already and I just found it under a pile of papers on my desk. I'm SO sorry!

OCT 5 - DAILY
Today is Do Something Nice Day.

Update your blog and tell about something that you did for someone else today, not because you had to but just because you wanted to be nice.

Jade,

I don't see a problem with using #29. In fact, I think you SHOULD use it! I can only imagine what a layout from that one would look like!


Here's another site for anyone who might be looking for some help with the weekly!

No. :P I had bad food symptoms, not the ralph kind, if you get what I mean. It kept me up half the night and the cat kept me up the other half the night, and then that one out-of-control thread the other half.

You have to -do- certain things during a certain time of the month in order for it to be another condition, and that didn't happen this month.

you commented on my blog that you wanted the recipe for the cookies. I just use the recipe that comes on the sticks of butter flavored crisco. It is the best one I've found!

Good morning.

So, I saw that Wicked is coming here in December and I've been asking to go see it for a while now. J told me to go out and see how much tickets cost, and for the cheapest, it's $40 a ticket, but you sit in the 3rd balcony, all the way in the back!

To get decent seats, it's at least $80 per ticket!

I don't know if he'll agree to that for a Christmas present or not.

I just have to tell you I'm still feeling crappy so I went and checked to see what day of my cycle I'm on because surely I had another week before AF was due, only to discover I'm on day 30 of my normally 28-day-cycle.

However, I'm really crampy and my boobs hurt so I have a feeling AF is coming, anyway.

It wouldn't be impossible for me to be THAT this month, but it would be highly improbable.

And I haven't told my husband because he would flip out. lol

Yes and no. I'm really tired today so I'm sure that whatever it is is causing that. Thanks for asking!



hmmm... not feeling well and really tired... noticing smells more than usual??? hmmm



I just have to tell you I'm still feeling crappy so I went and checked to see what day of my cycle I'm on because surely I had another week before AF was due, only to discover I'm on day 30 of my normally 28-day-cycle.

However, I'm really crampy and my boobs hurt so I have a feeling AF is coming, anyway.

It wouldn't be impossible for me to be THAT this month, but it would be highly improbable.

And I haven't told my husband because he would flip out. lol



hee hee... I just got all a flutter with excitement... need me to run to drug store for you??? if it makes you more comfortable.. I'm late too... but right there in that improbable boat with you.

I'm not going to take a test until Sunday morning. I don't want to get myself excited, but I'm scared to be disappointed, too. I figure if AF hasn't come by Sunday, I will be less likely to be disappointed if I take a test. But then again, I went through it in March/April where I was very late and not THAT so I tend to be doubtful.

Oh DAD GUMMMMMM it!

I'm sorry. I cannot BELIEVE this.

I'm a total and complete IDIOT!

I have all the challenges lined out for the entire week, and I didn't even think to get online today! School sports eligibility due today and it's the week before 9 weeks tests. I'm a hamster on a wheel! Megan, you are welcome to fire me if you want.

oh Melissa my neighbor is going through the same thing, somewhat. But she went to the doc yesterday and she is not prego. AF has not arrived yet, but she is on meds to help her get prego. So I am always asking her what is going on, if she has taken prego tests, if she is doing what she needs to do to get preggo lol. I feel for ya'll. I have "given" up trying and just seeing what happens. Which is the same thing, I just drive myself crazy less this way

and neat daily!

Jade, that is what we did as far as the just seeing what happens.. I stressed over it for years and let it consume me... did fertility treatments for a year, when we "gave up" it finally happened.

well I havent been trying for long but I had a miscarriage 2 months ago and this would be my first change to get prego after the miscarriage. So I am stressed something is wrong with me. We got prego with westin so quickly. So I dunno if it will take us a long time to get prego again or not. But I don;t want to drive myself crazy about it

Jade, we didn't try with Ethan. Just got pregnant. With CJ, we tried for almost 8 months before I got pregnant. I actually remember the whole thing. I stressed so much for months and months and worried that something was wrong with me (there actually was, but the endometriosis diagnosis didn't come until CJ was 6 months old). I would have menstrual cycles so painful that I would pass out or the pain would be so bad I'd vomit.

Then we said, alright I need to go back to work, so we stopped trying. I went on a couple of job interviews, never heard anything. I woke up one morning and said, I think I'm going to take a PT and see what it says. It was positive. Then 3 days after that I got a job offer. It was crazy, to say the least! I took the job and didn't tell them I was pregnant until I was about 3 months along. lol

So yeah, there's probably nothing wrong. The body just does what it does. I have a friend who tried for 2 years before she got pregnant with her first and they started trying for their second right away and still haven't gotten pregnant yet and he'll be 3 in a couple of months. And there's nothing wrong with her body. I always feel so bad for her, to have to wait THAT long and know that there's nothing wrong.

I know. My friend tried for 3 years and finally got prego. I don't think she wants to try again b/c of all she went through. But they told her it was her weight and she just lost a ton of weight so I dunno if she is rethinking it or not. My other friend that is going through all the infertility stuff now has been trying for about 2 years and finally this doc ran tests on her! Can you believe it? I would have been so mad. They never did any tests just told her to loose weight! Now this doc told her it may not even be her weight! What is wrong with some docs?

I had been told most of my life that it would never happen... I would only get my period about 3 times a year, was told that I just didnt produce eggs normally. Funny Mel, the same thing happened with me and the job, I had to go take a pea test for the job and was thinking something seemed funny... stopped and got the PT on the way home and found out it was positive. I didn't tell them either for about 5 weeks after I had my first dr visit, I was already 3 months along and was just too excited to keep it to myself anymore.

We are not officially trying now, if it happens it happens... then we will know it was meant to be. I actually had found out I was preggo again early this year but lost it the end of March. It definitely hurt but I got my baby girl and she is more than I ever thought I would have so I am happy with what I have.

That is exactly why I desperately wanted a girl. I lost my mom at an early age but we had the greatest bond! She was my best friend and I wanted that with my own daughter! my mom had tried to have a baby for over 7 years and when it didn't happen they adopted me! I was her prayer baby! Right after she got me I guess the pressure was off and she found out she was pregnant. so my sister and I are less than a year apart. Growing up people would assume we were twins (even though we look nothing alike) because we were about the same age!

I have a question about the monthly. When you say 7 pages plus front and back cover is that 8 pages with front and back? or can you have 5 pages front and back and that would be cover (front of first pg), day 1 (back of first pg), day 2 (front of pg 2), day 3 (back of pg 2), and so on? Does this make sense? I hope I explained it well.

Front and back counts as 2 pages. Just wanted to make sure there was a side/page for each day of the week.

Julie, the adoption part of your story is so sweet. I'm sorry you lost your Mom at such a young age.

I, too, long for a girl. But I will be happy no matter what. If I can get pregnant with #3, this will probably be the last baby my body can handle. And even if it could handle more, my husband is done after that and is getting the big V. And I will probably need a hysterectomy within 10 years. I'm thankful for that long, considering that I had stage 2 endometriosis 3 years ago.

You girls are so awesome. I still haven't told my husband yet! lol

Good morning! I miss out on a lot of baby talk! Excited to see if you are in fact preggers Mel! My husband and I have not been trying but haven't been trying to prevent it either and still, after 4 years, no baby. Sometimes I decide I'm done, my son is already 9 (going to be 10 in Dec) and then other times I really want another one. I guess whatever happens happens. I didn't know the monthly was up...going to check it out now!

So jealous of you all and your close bonds with your mother. My mother has never been much of a motherly figure and I have pretty much lived my life doing the opposite of anything I had ever seen her do. My dad was my mother and father for most of my life, she walked out on us when I was 12 and my dad raised me. The resentment I have towards her has gotten even worse now that my dad is gone. I want to have that wonderful relationship with Jolie that I never had with her.

Julie that is such a sweet story, I worked with a girl who went through the exact same thing with adopting then finding out she was pregnant. That seems to be a huge factor on it is the pressure of trying.

BJ - I was never close to my mom either growing up. I'm sorry to hear what you've been through.

Melissa I am rooting for you! Come on, baby! Wish I could help

One of my biggest fears is that I won't be able to have my own children. I want to be pregnant (not now!) and go through labor to have that wonderful miracle handed to me after all the work. I do know that my period is WAY off. My doctor keeps telling me, "As long as you get 3-4 a year, you're ok." My paps always come back normal and the exams go A-ok. There's no history of miscarriages or trouble with pregnancy in my family, but I still worry that with all the medicine I've taken in life that I won't be able to conceive one day. Now I've never had sex so there's no way to gauge how "careful" or not careful I've been and the result of that so I really don't know what will happen!

I will say that I miss being on BC though. My complexion is shot to hell since my doc took me off it (for regulating my period) since he put me on another medicine that can cause stroke when combined with BC. I'm hoping that with the weight I've lost (35 pounds since May) that I can get off that medicine and go back on my sweet BC. I never know when AF will come, ever...some months nope, some months heavy. It's hit and miss. Just finished my visit and I'm happy she's gone now for a month or two (or three).

And I have a question about the challenge:

Do mini album layouts count towards your layout goal? I have a mini that I posted that has 12 6x6 layouts and another mini that's 4.5x6 with 11 layouts. How would that be scored?

awww BJ you can have a wonderful bond with your daughter! I am sure you will cherish it!

I don't think I have ever not had AF visit me (except when I was preggo). I did get on BC at an early age to help regulate my period. It was pretty bad when I was younger. I guess that is good and hopefully that means I am ovulating every month. We will see what happens. AF is about to over stay her welcome! It is time for her to go!

Yes, mini-albums count towards your goal. Check out the 1st post for the rules on how many LOs a particular size is worth. I think it is 2 6x6 mini album pages=1 LO towards your goal and 3 4x6=1 LO towards your goal and 4 4x4 (or smaller)=1 LO towards your goal.
