Safe travels, Mrs B. We'll miss you. Hope you take lots of pics...and share, share, share when you return.

Sorry about the 'net thing at home, Tiff. It stinks when you've got to change providers.

:wavey: Hi mandoura. How's life?

I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art today, and the first place we went was the ancient Egypt area. Wow! Such incredible painting and sculpture! They have quite a display there... an ancient tomb has been transported to New York and reconstructed, with all the original painting on the walls. And there is also an entire temple that was moved from the banks of the Nile when the dam threatened to destroy it.

I have to say the god Anubis freaks me out a bit. The whole "dog-head-on-a-man's-body" thing. :scared: :silly: ;)

I really wanted to take some of the Egyptian knickknacks home with me... think they would have noticed? Some little statues and figurines would look nice on my mantel. :angel:

Ok the story now. Just remember AQ what you have to look forward to ;)

Last night I came home and the house was completely empty. Hubs and Sam were at a teacher meeting and Nate SHOULD have been home. After phone calls to friends, neighbors and a trip to the school no Nate. Then I remembered that he said he had a Math Meet. So I called the boy he walks to and from school with and sure enough I was told that Nate hadn't walked home with him because there was a Math Meet. I go back to the school at the usual designated time and no bus, no kids, no other parents. I think OMG! I go home check the actual Math meet schedule and it says FEB 1st not JAN 31st. Call hubs and then 911 to report him missing. I felt stupid but nothing was adding up. Of course I live in a small town and everyone knows everybody. Meet up with the policeman and call hubs asking him to go back to the school. We finally find Nate on a bus coming from the Math meet. Hubs calls back and says the other parent at the school is also getting upset. He tells her it is ok the bus is on its way home. Finally 1 hour 45 minutes after the bus was due back- the phone rings and Nate says "Hi mom, it is so nice to be loved and missed". :lol: What a kid. I still feel a bit stupid but not overly. :o

The joke- I laughed with the policeman stating that already I was calling them and Nate wasn't even a teenager yet :lol:


Aw, nice kid. Sorry you had a scare, but glad it worked out! :)

There were some paintings of Mt. Katahdin and some Maine lighthouses at the museum today. :hearts:

:eek: Glad Nate is safe! :hug:

I totally understand all the emotions you must have felt! Sometimes my mom likes to repeat things 20958235 times to me on the phone, telling me I should remember to do this, not do that, I eat and sleep properly..that I get impatient and tell her to stop! "Yeah I know mom!" :lol: Then she tells me to shut up and that I would understand once I have my own child :haha:, that I'd be worried and constantly thinking of him/her when they're away. :awww:;) I love my mom! :hug:

Speaking of 911...I remember this incident several years back...I think my brother accidentally hit "911" on the phone once (he was like 5 at the time :)) and all these cops came to our house. My parents opened the door and told the cops nothing was wrong, but the cops kept eyeing my dad suspiciously lol. I think they must have thought there was domestic violence going on and that my mom called 911 and my dad's presence was pressuring my mom not to say anything to them at the door. :haha: The cops kept trying to sneak peaks through the windows right after that to make sure everything really was okay. :lol: My brother got the chiding of his life about the seriousness of 911 after that. :o

Yes, the old Egyptian antiques are awesome. Luxor is a real museum. I don't know about the Metropolitan but in Cairo Museum, I doubt it very much anyone will notice anything is missing ;) . A lot of things are stacked in a pile with very little security :rolleyes: . One cannot imagine the amount of stolen, gifted and "lost" little "knickknacks". :eek:

I thought Anubis would freak you out because it is the god of the dead/mummification. I used to wonder why it was so black unlike the jackal it represents until I learned it is the color of death. :scared:

Hey Mandoura :hug:

I'm good, I got up about a couple hours ago, did some cleaning, took a shower, and just ate my breakfast lol (now being 3pm for me;)). But I'm feeling really rested and almost ready to go out and shoot some ball. :)

But this day kinda stinks...like, literally. I got fed up with my clogged up sink and bought this Drain Opener thing to do some massive de-clog. ;) I followed all the instructions, poured half of the bottle down the drain, and rinsed with tap water...and it's not doing anything but making some old junk regurgitate back up into the standing water and making the sink area reek! :mad: I'll probably pour the rest of the stuff later to try to get the sink normal again.....since I'd like to start washing dishes at some point? :shrug::silly::lol:

Jace...welcome to our world of 'homeownership' (where there's always something going bad or needing to be fixed)? BTW, don't you have a landlord who could take care of that drain for you? Now the mold, that was probably you...but the drain...I think that's part of what you're paying rent for.

Jace :hug:. Hope the sink is OK now. Of all household nuisances, anything related to the kitchen and bathroom really gets to me and, I think, is the worst. But as AQ suggested, maybe the landlord should help. And as Matt said, draining stuff take time to work. Give it another try. Hope you'll be doing the dishes soon. :D I am fine, hanks for asking, except for a very nasty cold that I don't have time for. Ask Lee, she knows what I am talking about. :lol:

:hug: Sue. How are the kids after your 911 episode? Appreciating being loved and missed or did the jokes start? ;)

Jace, it's so great to hear you love your mom! :hug: :hug: And yeah, you know the stuff we have for the sinks it says to pour it and then let it stay for some time (like 6-8 hours or smth) and only then wash again so it can kinda 'work' on the clogging or how to say it (sorry for my English). :shrug: Maybe they are different liquids of course.
Have a good weekend everyone! :wavey:

Planning to go to Brokeback Mountain next week- office staff night out for dinner and a movie. About 7 of us are going. I am looking forward to seeing it but wish it wasn't so sad.

its still hockey not figure skating. Hitting and physical play make the game. We dont have goons in the traditional sense but hard checking players who make it tough on players who want to skate around untouched but if you wanna talk skilled players alone Canada matches up with any country easily.

Who do they think I am? I should just leave 'em in a lurch. I've been trying to tell them for months we need to bring a second programmer up to speed for coverage and such. A second set of hands would come in real handy right about now.

Interesting.

My asthma actually improved when I moved from the country to the city. Less pollen?

Has anyone else here run into the problem of accumulating too many friends/acquaintances over the years? (Not saying I'm popular, just old :lol: ) I have some guilt over not being in touch with quite a few people, but it would be so much work!

Maybe annual Christmas Cards are the answer. :lol:

My asthma actually improved when I moved from the country to the city. Less pollen?Probably...but Richmond...while it has ~750K+ in the metro-area and is a "city", we still have LOTS and LOTS of trees which kick out sooooo much pollen. We even joke that mid-April to mid-May is the Green Season. That means that no matter what color your car is, it'll be covered by so much pollen that it'll look green. You should see it in the gutters after a rainstorm. Unbelievable.

And we really don't have an prevailing winds to carry pollen or pollution away; the mountains block most everything substantial from the West and we're just a tad bit too far inland for the ocean breezes to clean/clear things up.

Has anyone else here run into the problem of accumulating too many friends/acquaintances over the years? (Not saying I'm popular, just old :lol: ) I have some guilt over not being in touch with quite a few people, but it would be so much work!YES! I've had to just let some of them go. I rarely keep up with anyone from high school or college anymore (we haven't even had the first Reunion :rolleyes: ) and, at best, just one or two former co-workers from each of my previous jobs. And being married complicates things even more since you've got your spouses friends to fraternize with too. Deciding on who to invite for a dinner party can be a trying experience sometimes.

Maybe annual Christmas Cards are the answer. :lol:I hate those things. :mad:

How's everyone doing? :hug:Pretty good today. Busy (at work) but the home life is settling in. The nausea is more gone than here and I'm starting to feel myself again (except a lot fatter :lol: ). Plus, the prospect of getting back out on the courts is energizing me. Nicer weather is just around the corner.

I do the Xmas thing. This year was the easiest as we took the cowards way out. Had a pic of the boys and sent it to snapfish for a premade holiday card. Wrote a limited amount on the back and then opened up my computer directory and voila!

We've probably got a dozen magnetic frames on the fridge...full of our 'kids'. I like to rotate in the new ones as I get them and file the old ones. If that 'child' is coming to dinner with their parents, sometimes I like to pull out their old ones and see if they recognize themselves.

And Nermo I am not "insane" not yet anyway. Here's another Sue story- many folks here know how much I adore the folks I work with; we have a great time together. Anyway a few of them are a little mad at the other doc and this morning I was the lone ranger in the office. I came in and on my computer monitor was a pic of Lucy from peanuts where she is behind her desk( whatever it is called) with the saying "the doctor is in 5 cents". Well someone had written in the organized doctor is in. That sent me looking for images on the internet and when I found that one of snoopy I just had to use it :lol: With all the stuff going on in my life right now I am just everywhere. Tonight I decided NOT to join the boys for dinner at a friends house so I could catch up on some paperwork etc. But I had to check the Davis Cup scores to see that ARod lost. Unbelievable. Poor guy.

How come it doesn't surprise me that our lovely Doc Sue...is the organized one? :p

Most of my buddies are either in serious long-term relationships, are engaged, or are married...some even about to become daddies. :eek: And there are a few female friends that limit their connections to me because of jealous possessive husbands (like I'm going to do anything untoward:lol: ). :rolleyes:Now you're talking my life (when I was your age...and even a bit now) except I was on the 'other' side. By 25, I had graduated, had no school loans, owned my own house, responsible job. The rest of 'em were still carefree (although wildly in debt)...livin' it up every weekend, new cars, new clothes. It seemed like it only took a few years and, BAM, they were all married with kids. And me, I hadn't had a date in years and no prospect for any.

Now, things are rather muddled...as we have friends of all ages and in all stages of life...but it took us a decade to get there...so time is on your side. We worked really hard to maintain relationships with couples who had kids (even when we didn't) and I hope we can continue in that pattern. There's nothing worse than suddenly being left out when you become the only single guy/gal in a 'couples' crowd...or the only childless couple in a 'family' crowd.

Sorry some of your 'attached' female friends are having to curtail their relationship with you. Things do have to change a bit but if everyone can stay adult about it, you might find yourself with one more friend ('him') rather than one less (her). My hubby's best friend is a woman and from the start, she was the one more uncomfortable with the concept of them. But hubs made it clear, if I made him choose (I never did), I probably wouldn't like the choice. He mentioned that they'd dated in high school (years ago) and realized even at that young age, they were better suited as friends than lovers. That's all I needed to hear. Now, I fondly count her as one of my friends too!

OK, I'm finally at my last straw and need some advice here.

Little Lee's weight is a problem for quite sometimes now. Hubby doesn't think it's a big issue and so do I. But his doctor insists it's an issue. The problem is: little Lee is taking medication for his AD/HD problem and one of the side effect is losing appetite even his appetite didn't exist before. The medication helps him a lot. He feels much better because he is doing great in school and everything else when the drug is working.

His height is average, that's following perfectly with the 50 percentile curve for height/age but his weight is now at the 10 percentile and declining. He grows about 3.5 cms in last 9 months but lost 2 lbs. From 62 lbs in August 2005 to 60 lbs last week. Otherwise, he is healthy.

His doctor suggests seeing nutritionists and hinting if his weight doesn't increase in the near future, he has to stop the precription. He suggests another new drug that won't affect appetite. The problems I have are, little Lee was slim before he took the Ritalin and I don't really trust newer drug and it may not work with little Lee. It took us a few years to finally have little Lee try Ritalin, as our last straw.

Right now, I am 'forcing' little Lee to eat more. Getting more carlories and fats into his diet while keeping hubby and I from them. :rolleyes: (btw I gained about 3 lbs already since the beginning of the year)

Any suggestions?

Any suggestions?Oh boy, this is a tough one. As someone who's been underweight all my life (including now...the doc's nurse just rolled her eyes at my last weigh-in of 108lbs...saying...she's 4 mos pregnant and still doesn't top out at 110lbs/50kg)....I know that no amount of eating would change my physique. As a young child, I weighed 32lbs/14.5kg in 1st Grade and was the tallest girl in my class.

What complicates matter for little Lee is the medication he's taking. If one of the side-effects is a suppressed appetite, then I think you're right to be more careful. Otherwise, I think most young, thin children do a good job of self-regulating their caloric intake (suddenly stick-thin teenage girls, however, don't fall in that category). I don't see where a quick trip to a registered dietician or nutritionist would do any harm (in fact, I think we ALL might benefit from such a consultation). They'll probably ask you to keep a diary of the food he eats and you might be surprised at how much he's actually taking in.

Agree with AQ, Lee. Good to get a nutritionist's advice. She/he may very well give you loads of hints to add in those extra calories. I had a problem with Nate as a toddler. He was diagosed as a failure to thrive kid because he did not eat. The pediatrician was up in arms and wanted to do all sorts of tests. The problem is that Nate wanted to only drink and not eat as he was so fussy. I let her take some blood tests but asked if I could do my own thing with him for 2 weeks before we embarked on any other testing. BTW she was unhelpful when it came to giving nutrition advice. Fortunately I am well read on that as many cancer patients also don't eat. Needless to say rather than fight Nate I went with the "flow". I started feeding him carnation instant breakfasts/protein drinks. In those 2 weeks he gained weight and everyone was happy. Eventually he grew out of whatever he was in and started getting interested in food. So end all- have you tried carnation stuff etc. Any type will do. And I used to add ice cream to it as well; for the calcium and the calories. Good luck.

Lee
02-13-2006, 05:56 PM
Thanks! Little Lee doesn't drink much too. I think that's one of the problem. I'm the kind that believe drinking water will help you gain weight although water itself has no calory.

One thing is, does he need more carbohydrate than protein? Right now, I am adding half and half cream to his milk :lol: to boost his calories and fats intake.

If he isn't a big drinker either you are better off giving him milkshakes. And it isn't the fat content you want. Pretty equal carbs to protein so that is why those drinks are so good. And I would use 2% milk as that way he will get enough water as well. I would not give him water at all as it is empty calories but if you are worried about hydration issues then those sports drinks work as well. Problem is if he is finicky then you don't want to fill him up with just drinks. Again it was a no brainer for me since Nate just did not eat. Funny how he is still my problem kid :lol: BTW he did not need a cast for his arm. Yes it was broken- the distal radius but it was a fx like a squishing of a aluminum can- so he only needed a brace. Should be healed in 2 weeks just in time for swim team! Nate was psyched!

BTW he did not need a cast for his arm. Yes it was broken- the distal radius but it was a fx like a squishing of a aluminum can- so he only needed a brace. Should be healed in 2 weeks just in time for swim team! Nate was psyched!Nate broke his arm?!?!?! What did I miss?

Well, most of them are married, so-far-hetero guys. Some of them send unexpected signals to my gaydar, but i tend to ignore him 'coz i'm not into cheating or Brokeback affairs. But considering the persisten lack of sex lately :sad: i guess i'll have no choice :angel::hug:

Been there...even on the hetero side. The no-sex part I could deal with (either by :tape: taking care of business myself or just going without)...but it was the emotional closeness that comes along with good sex with a partner you care about that I missed the most.

If he isn't a big drinker either you are better off giving him milkshakes. And it isn't the fat content you want. Pretty equal carbs to protein so that is why those drinks are so good. And I would use 2% milk as that way he will get enough water as well. I would not give him water at all as it is empty calories but if you are worried about hydration issues then those sports drinks work as well. Problem is if he is finicky then you don't want to fill him up with just drinks. Again it was a no brainer for me since Nate just did not eat. Funny how he is still my problem kid :lol: BTW he did not need a cast for his arm. Yes it was broken- the distal radius but it was a fx like a squishing of a aluminum can- so he only needed a brace. Should be healed in 2 weeks just in time for swim team! Nate was psyched!

Thanks for the info.

Good news from Nate. I was worried he might like my friend. He fell off his bike and was thrown into a ditch. Doctors had to cut open his arm, screwed up the bones and sew him back. He was like having a zipper all the way from his upper arm, past his elbow and half way to his wrist. And after the bones were healed, they had to open his arm, again to unscrew :rolleyes: Hopefully this is not necessary with modern technology.

Probably Walmart doesn't have it. The one I go is the supercenter, i.e. have everything including grocery. But there's nope in the breakfast aisle or where the portarts are. Since most children in this state is overweight, :p they don't stock this type of food. :shrug:

How come it doesn't surprise me that our lovely Doc Sue...is the organized one? :p

Now you're talking my life (when I was your age...and even a bit now) except I was on the 'other' side. By 25, I had graduated, had no school loans, owned my own house, responsible job. The rest of 'em were still carefree (although wildly in debt)...livin' it up every weekend, new cars, new clothes. It seemed like it only took a few years and, BAM, they were all married with kids. And me, I hadn't had a date in years and no prospect for any.

Now, things are rather muddled...as we have friends of all ages and in all stages of life...but it took us a decade to get there...so time is on your side. We worked really hard to maintain relationships with couples who had kids (even when we didn't) and I hope we can continue in that pattern. There's nothing worse than suddenly being left out when you become the only single guy/gal in a 'couples' crowd...or the only childless couple in a 'family' crowd.

Sorry some of your 'attached' female friends are having to curtail their relationship with you. Things do have to change a bit but if everyone can stay adult about it, you might find yourself with one more friend ('him') rather than one less (her). My hubby's best friend is a woman and from the start, she was the one more uncomfortable with the concept of them. But hubs made it clear, if I made him choose (I never did), I probably wouldn't like the choice. He mentioned that they'd dated in high school (years ago) and realized even at that young age, they were better suited as friends than lovers. That's all I needed to hear. Now, I fondly count her as one of my friends too!

:worship: You are like Sue Johansson, Drew Pinksy, and Dr. Phil all in one. :) Except you're way more attractive! :lol:;)

Actually I have lived here 15 years and I travel the same back roads in good weather all the time. Yes there are farms; yes I see loads of animals but I have never had to stop in the middle and wait at a "chicken crossing".

I don't think she's anywhere near the mudslide site.

There's hardly any internet access from where she's vacationing.

Thanks Lee. :hug:

I guess I am just prone to worrying. I hope she is having fun and will be back soon. She said she'll be away for almost a month.

The belt test is approaching, right? Are you training harder or the usual way?

About Little Lee's eating "issue", I know Marlo & Sue gave you some great tips, I will add one or two I found very helpful with Nour (I told you before they can live together ;) ) . She sort of had a problem too with her weight. She wouldn't touch cooked food for days. Her doctor told me I should look for what she eats weekly not daily. He suggested finger food and it worked: fried fish/chicken strips, cheese croquette (you told me he likes cheese, yes?), ground beef/cheese dumplings or spring rolls, lots of vegetable/fruit sticks. She also loved pudding/custard. You know the "crème patissière" used to fill pastry? She loved it. She also loved a kind of pudding I made with either yam, pumpkin or black dates. They are very nutritious. Sometimes I added some flour, baked them, cut them into squares and she prefered them to cakes. He also suggested she gets involved in a weekly sport to build muscles and increase appetite. It worked.

Anyway, I hope this issue is settled fast and is no longer an issue. :hug: :)

Thanks mando :hug:

*sigh* Nour interests in lots more food than little Lee does *sigh*

Last night we went out for dinner and he ate a lot. He came home and got on the scale and weight in 62 lbs. This morning after he was up and got on the scale again, 2 lbs just evaporated into thin air while he's sleeping.

I'm prone to worrying too Mando. I guess I am used to Eva's trips to her hometown now as I know her more than 3 years so I'm not too worried when there's bad news from Philippines.

AP Update

If you'll remember, my last doc visit was ostensibly for some bloodwork analysis to assess the risk of serious birth defects...and doc just did the ultrasound for fun.

Well, the results are back...and a big :yeah: up. In fact, the numbers looked so good (and combined with his visual assessment), we're leaning towards no further testing (i.e. no amniocentesis). I think we're just gonna roll the dice like prospective parents have done for eons before all this medical technology rolled around. As cool as it is, I'd rather not go poking down trails that are better left untravelled.

I'm having a few uncomfortable moments...I think AP is active and sloshing all around in some tight quarters. Have only felt one thing that I can reasonably surmise as 'movement' but last night I felt all these strange little flutters...with my hand on my belly. Maybe I was just dreaming...but it seems like things are progressing as they should.

Work continues to be a nightmare and there's not an apparent end in sight although I'll be at a conference two days next week and in class next Friday...so I should get a bit of a mental break.

Hope all the clubbers out there are doing A-OK!!!

Yes...but we can keep hope, hope, hoping...for another Miracle On Ice.

Not necessary, USA has many good players. What the team needs is one superstar like Mario Lemieux/Wayne Gretzky/Steve Yzerman for Canada, Jaromir Jagr/Dominik Hasek for Czechs Republic, Teemu Selanne for Finland and Peter Forsberg for Sweden. ;)

Of course, superstar is not that easy to come by.

Not sure how good will be the teacher and the group is a little bit larger (8 children instead of 6) It's a lot cheaper than the previous one as it's sponsored by the city but I'll see how he progresses and if he needs someone better.

I haven't got much time here just :hug: :hug: to Alfonso, we're getting old. ;) Sigh. I just CANNOT get rid of the kilos I need. :rolleyes:
But here's the news to Alfonso - saw Brokeback Mountain yesterday. :yeah: I knew almost everything about the visual language beforehand so there were no big surprises, but Ang Lee really more shows the story than tells it, and it's good. :yeah: Jake Gyllenhaal could get the Oscar for the supporting male actor, I've really started to appreciate him. :yeah: I'm not so sure about Heath Ledger but they both were good. :)

I am praying Finland will get the hockey gold tomorrow. :DWeight issues...jeez. Even 19w pregnant, and I barely tip the scales at 110lbs/50kg. And I'm a lot like little Lee...and go to sleep...and lose weight. Might sound great, but trust me...it's just as frustrating as it is for those who want to lose weight.

Sorry Lee about the hockey. :yeah: to all the Swedes. It was a fantastic game!

Hope everyone had a good one. Saturday was good and I probably overdid it. It was all I could do Sunday to drag myself around the house.
