  • One of my coworkers has been clearing her throat every 2 mins for the last couple days. I am not exaggerating.  It doesn't seem to do anything and it is driving me nuts, NUTS :rage:

    I got some updates about my cat. He went for his follow-up visit last Friday and his blood glucose had skyrocketed since last May. He is now on insulin. This is causing me stress because I hate needles and I have to inject him twice a day. He doesn't seem to mind so that's helping. Vet is suspecting it might be cancer because he is too old (almost 18) and too skinny to be developing diabetes now. I went again today and his blood sugars were even higher so we're increasing the dose of insulin. I will also have to test him with a glucose monitor this weekend. If playing with insulin doesn't seem to work, we'll do an ultrasound to see if he has a tumor on his pancreas or bowels.
    I also had a very stressful day at work last Friday and I had to keep monitoring the situation over the weekend. It is finally under control.
    And finally, for some reason, calculating how to lay the new floor is stressing me out. The room is L-shaped + there is a hallway. I feel like I need to know some advanced math formula to make sure I won't have 1" planks against the walls. Manufacturer says the minimum should be is 3". This sounds silly but it is causing me anxiety.
    Needless to say, I woke up at 4:30AM and was unable to fall back asleep.

  • @rikiteacup Oh man! So sorry about everything! Maybe throw something at your coworker? And hope that insulin works for your cat! That's a bummer that work has been stressful! Flooring is tough but you got this and it will look great!

  • @rikiteacup Oh man, so much on your plate right now! I bet you're doing an amazing job giving your grandpa kitty his insulin <3 I hope everything smooths out for you soon.

    On my mind: has anyone done a custom framing/shadow box thing for their wedding invitation or other sentimental stuff? I am the least sentimental person possible but I forced myself not to toss our wedding invite/etc while cleaning in the basement but now feel obligated to do something with it. I'm not at all crafty enough to put one together myself but have been poking around Etsy for possibilities.
  • @Swiftlet do you mean building the box or how to arrange items inside the box?

  • @taylor2020 wow, that is a great idea and it looks fantastic.
    If I were rich and lived in a mansion with a 200+ sq.ft. WIC, I would get a seamstress mannequin and display my wedding dress.

  • @rikiteacup sorry you are going through so much right now.  I would totally do the passive aggressive move with your co-worker and ask if she needs a cough drop or a drink. 

    @Swiftlet Etsy is a good place to start but I would try Pinterest too because you might find some inspiration there as well.

  • @taylor2020 how neat!
    @rikiteacup mostly arranging. I don't think I'll attempt it on my own though! My crafting ability is pretty pathetic ;)
    @celticknotfire definitely pinterest!

  • @Swiftlet our wedding invitation is in a double frame with the invite on one side and picture of us on the other. We got it as a shower gift from Macy’s

  • The Chicago cold has come too soon!!! 
    I left home this morning and it was 9° with a wind chill of -6°. Brrrrrrr.

  • @sassypants2010 I can’t blame you. I come from a culture of “we don’t start fights but we’ll finish them” though... so I might have skipped straight to that.

    @sassypants2010 We are bad parents, but DH and I ask "did you tell the teacher?" and follow up with "well if she doesn't do anything then push them back". DS is super small so I don't want him getting pushed around.

    I do always wonder if we're the last people in the world at a birthday party telling our toddler "well push them back then..." Seems like maybe we are lol.

  • @craftywitch I told him last night that self defense is acceptable but only if the teacher option had been used. He just gets so flustered with thinking the teachers won't do anything and my hands address tied since I can't go beating up 1st graders. I doubt you're bad parents, my son is small also which is part of why I want to just tell him to go feral if no one is doing anything(besides making both write apology letters, eye roll).

  • @daffodil_shoe yay! So glad you can get back to work and not be stuck on bed rest.

  • @ibabyloveb87 weird, that’s exactly what happened with DS1 Sunday night! He had a lower fever (100.0) Sunday evening. When I checked on him at 10:00 while he was sleeping, he was completely drenched in sweat so I moved him to a dry spot on the bed. Monday morning it was still 99, but was done by 9:00. Then no other symptoms 🤷🏼‍♀️ So he went back to school today.

  • @ibabyloveb87 I spent the day binging Disney plus with a sick kid too. Mine has had a cold for a few days but woke up with a high fever and has been miserable most of the day. Fever comes back when the Motrin wears off so no preschool tomorrow and more Disney binging. Glad he seems to be feeling better 
  • @daffodil_shoe that’s so odd. Must have just been a little short-lived virus. 🤷🏽‍♀️

  • I am catching up from a not so fun weekend. We brought my car in for a diagnosis and ended up having to leave it for $2k in repairs. Our heat in our house isn't working properly and then DD came down with croup. We cancelled all plans on Sunday including our family pictures and my Mom's birthday celebration. We kept DD home Monday and today. With all this chaos going on, half the time I don't even remember I am pregnant. Makes me miss being able to be so in tune to my 1st pregnancy with DD. 
  • My random is that last pregnancy (Dec due date) I did not need to buy a pregnancy coat so this time I was like oh I can just wear the coat open. I didn't think about the fact that three months of cold is a lot longer than 1 month of cold, and that I would be bigger this time around. It was 19 degrees this morning and I left the house in a fleece!

    @zseirecarg this pregnancy is so different for me too, but i never felt "in tune" with my daughter either. I don't know if its a defense mechanism but I haven't been able to really get attached to either until they get here.

    @daffodil_shoe yay for being off bed rest!!! 

    @sassypants2010 I have the opposite issue, my daughter is a tattle-tale and it drives me NUTS. "Mommy, the cat is eating my doll's hair!" - well don't leave it on the floor!!! Sigh.

  • @zseirecarg, what a weekend!  Hope your daughter is feeling better.  I hear you on how different pregnancy feels this time around too.

    @leksiL, I borrowed a friend's maternity coat.  I was just going to tough it out but I realized DD is going to want to be outside when it's cold so that wasn't going to work.

  • @leksil I was pleasantly surprised that i can still button my pea coat. For now. But I can’t find a maternity coat I like ugh

  • I got a maternity coat last pregnancy from motherhood. Winter lasts forever here and my regular coat doesn’t zip anymore. Maybe there will be some good sales with Black Friday coming up?
