Hi E, If possible can I have a password to read your writing? I've been away for a bit - going like gangbusters at school and work fulltime at each. Hope all is well with the 3 of you and that you have a wonderful holiday season. Hugs, M
from ebombmom :
Hey! You're writing again. But I can't read it. The last password you emailed me isn't working (unless I'm missing the username info?). If I may, can I come in? :)
from souljourn :
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
from souljourn :
E, thanks for the note and for checking on me. I am hanging in here. Working like mad and barely getting any sleep. I never realized there were such shades of tiredness and fatigue as I now know. How are Lucy and Pete? Hope things improve in your corner of the world. Here's a super, giant bear hug to cheer you up... (((((((((((((((((((HUG)))))))))))))))))
from souljourn :
how are you doing E?
from lavanotes :
I hate it when tunnels are long and dim. Mine is like that too right now. Financial stress is the worst thing in the world. I hope things clear up for you.
from souljourn :
E - Hang in there. You will see light at the end of the tunnel. It is just tough going for right now.
from souljourn :
Hang in there toots! Remember to breathe.

Hi, I was just wondering if I could have your password. :) Thanks. ~Ash
from ebombmom :
Heya, if you're alright with it, I'd love the password once you lock. Can you email me at ebombmomATdiarylandDOTcom? Please? :)
from souljourn :
The picture of Lucy w/ Santa is gorgeous!
from souljourn :
Having no children of my own *yet* I have watched as I traveled with friends who have children. The stroller is nothing short of a life saver, for them - even if the stroller is the type that looks like a thin collapsible umbrella. Carrying a munchkin along with your baggage, whilst traveling gets tiresome, not to mention the “hustle bustle” and jostling of holiday travelers - and the fact that neither of you are rested. What ever you all decide, I've said safe travel prayers for you. I hope that you have fun while home w/ family. *I remember First night in St. Pete, Florida. It thought it was the single smartest concept anyone had ever thought of.* Have a super dooper holiday! Hugs, Auntie M
from souljourn :
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year E!

Dear E: I went to www.ask.com and I wrote in "where can i find tips for air travel with an infant." Can't take credit for that, Jeeves did all the work. Glad you found them helpful. What else is a good Auntie supposed to do? Smiles & Hugs, Auntie M
from souljourn :
And yet another: http://www.parentingjoy.com/airtravel.htm I'll stop here. Auntie M doesn't want to get on your last nerve. You all have a terrific flight and a wonderful visit! Hugs, Auntie M

Hang in there E. I have heard it gets better as they get a bit more mature. Sleeping thru the night is a HUGE accomplishment. You are right what a pair you and P will be! Hugs, -Auntie M
from souljourn :
Ya'll will get to dress those lil pumpkins in holiday outfits. Too cute!
from amomslife :
I'm so glad we don't have to battle the winter and the snow this year! Moving to Florida was a very, very good decision. I remember the way those type of driving situations scared me breathless! Be safe!

from caspia :
The ring timberwolves is up and running.
from caspia :
By what about the T-Wolves, do you mean there ought to be a ring? I can fix that if you're interested.
from sillyme00 :
you are not a bad mother, I let my daughter sleep on her tummy too and she is just fine. I also let my daughter sleep with me from time to time and it is great. I know that there are things that I do and I now think that it makes me bad or think that I should have never even started doing. It will all be fine
from jelibeary :
Don't feel bad Brenden only sleeps on his tummy and now he is 8 months old and hasn't had a problem. I also let him sleep with me everynow and then. So don't feel bad. Your a great mother.
from caspia :

Aw, E. I had tears in my eyes reading Lucy's arrival story. Hugs to you all. *waving at Lucy the little cutie pie!* - m
from souljourn :
Oh wow! Congratulations! Hello Lucy! E- She's precious!
from the-wraith :
Hey first of all happy mothers day, I bet you are very proud of your little girl :) and second of all thanks for adding me to your list of favs :) Hope you are getting some sleep.
from souljourn :
Happy Mother's Day E! Hugs, m
from the-wraith :
Hey there, Ive been reading your diary for quite some time now so i thought it was about time that i left a note to let you no that i am reading you every single day. I also wanted to say good luck with the birth of your baby , im sure everything will be just fine. Can't wait to hear how everything went :)
from souljourn :
I'm glad to hear you are feeling and doing lots better E. Hang in there, its sooooo close! Hugs, M
from souljourn :
E take some deep breathes. Its normal for you to be concerned. Remember the so called experts some times make huge sweeping generalizations in order to better discuss and maybe perhaps defend their own points of view. Hang in there. I know you are going to be a stellar mom.
from souljourn :
Hang in there! It may be helpful to ask your physician for a dietary listing of "safe" foods.
from souljourn :
I beg to differ with you E, you aren't a doofus. It's the pregnancy. Yeah, that sounds good, its the pregnancy. (No offense Bump, really). Hugs, M
from souljourn :
So E are you gonna don a pair of cute sandals and take a pix of those feet? Or you just gonna stand there bragging about how great they look and feel meanwhile taunting the rest of us!
from souljourn :
Hang in there E, don't let that Director get the better of you!. Sending hugs your way. {HUGS}, {HUGS} and more {HUGS}. -M
from souljourn :
Dear E: Re: Hurt Feelings Club, you are so much of a mature person, in having admitted that you aren't sure if you really put your feelings to rest with respect to the difference of opinions w/ the other journal's author. That speaks volumes of your personal character and depth of honesty. In the end, each decision you and P make will be what you feel is best, no one can take you to task for that, because Bump is yours. You won't always have clear cut info and I'm certain there will be times where you may feel hesitant, but your hearts are in the right place, and you are both very intelligent, caring and investigative folks. Bump, in my opinion, is in the best 2 pairs of hands possible. Please don't sweat the small stuff, and one man/woman and his/her opinion is just that AN Opinion. Don't forget we all have one. Be well and have a great doctor's visit. Hugs to you - you know I'm in your corner always! m :-)
from pazzobello :
There are definately no hard feelings on my end. I have enjoyed the debate. Sometimes it feels good to take a strong stand on something. I don't often do that. I do see your reasons as valid, the issue about having to go to a laundromat is one I will have to consider in more depth. I do agree that spending a few hours in a laundromat several times a week would really suck - but as far as it costing as much as using disposables, I disagree. When I said "someone like you" I meant, someone who is planning to be a stay-at-home Mom, and is somewhat strapped financially. I should've been more clear on that.
from libbyo :
by the way, for future reference, the phrase "someone like you" often does not have good connotations. I do not feel that I am a bad person who has made a bad choice, I have chosen a path that makes the most sense for me at this time in my life. Thanks!
from libbyo :
This is the last note I am going to leave on the subject. I have considered my choices, and frankly, to get right down to it, right now cloth is not an option, perhaps in the future it will be, but at the moment, it isn't. I appreciate your opinions, I have heard those arguments many times before and yes, I read your entry in its entirety. One day, when I have access to a washer and dryer or even the option of purchasing my own, I will consider cloth much more seriously. I took no personal offense whatsoever to your entry and replied more to help you understand that for me, it wasn't as much of an option-since you basically made it clear that you think it is idiodic not too - I however, also understand that different people have different circumstances and everyone can't be grouped into one big category. What I did take some offense to, was your response in my guestbook, I felt like you weren't even really listening to the reasons WHY cloth isn't a reasonable option for me at this time. Anyway, I hope there are not hard feelings. I don't much like to debate, especially since I feel that at this point in our lives, the only thing that can cause people to change their opinions is a desire to, and I tend to take things personally that maybe weren't meant to so much so.
from pazzobello :
I chose my car because it's one of the most environmentally friendly ones made, when everyone else in the world drives an SUV. My husband and I car-pool to work. I recycle EVERYTHING, and motivated my workplace to start recycling when I began working here. I do everything I can think of to make a difference for our environment - that is why I feel obligated to voice this opinion so strongly. Usually I am a very open-minded individual, and I love to listen to both sides of the story. I often have trouble picking a side because I can put myself in other people's shoes so well. But, now that I am bringing a child into this world, my motivations have been multiplied 100-fold. I want to make this world a better place for her, in any way that I can. Believe me, my family hears about it as well! I think maybe you took my entry too personally. I am not trying to judge you - I am simply debating my side. You were one of the first people to reply to my entry, so you just happen to be the one now involved in the debate. Your reply was so quick, in fact, that I have to wonder if you even read the entry in it's entirety. I worry that a person who has already made the choice to use disposable diapers will look at that heading and skip right over it, assuming they've heard all the arguments on the issue. I feel I have some fresh ideas that I haven't read anywhere else, and my hope is that one of them will be the trigger of doubt that will make someone like you re-consider her choices.
from libbyo :
Does that mean you are going to stop driving your car and walk or take a bus everywhere? That is a major environmental issue too... I think if you are planning on setting the example, why only do a half job? No, I don't have washer dryer hookups, No, I wouldn't save enough money to buy them anyway if I have to pay $10 a week to go to a laudromat. I highly doubt you would want to sit in one for three hours a few times a week with your baby either. My point is that you don't know, or understand all of my circumstances, so to be so harsh in your citicism, is unfair. Does your entire family use cloth diapers? Perhaps your arguments would be better suited to them.
from libbyo :
It was too soon for me to make this reply in your guestbook, and yes, that was a harsh comment, one that I find to be unfair. For one thing, it is easy for someone who has their own washer/dryer to make judgement on someone who doesn't and would need to haul baby and self to spend just as much money in a laudromate every week for hours on end. Secondly, I don't think anyone has the right to say that ONE way is right and ONE way is wrong. What might be right for some, may not be easy or even feasible for others. Some might have problems with the fact that the U.S. is rapidly running out of clean drinking/ground water, (studies say if things keep up, there will be major problems within ten years) yet here are these people doing three extra loads of laundry a week to save money, but you know what? I am not going to pass judgement on people until I have walked in their shoes, or tried both methods... I will read your diary, because to tell you the truth, it is one of the ones I enjoy the most, but please don't assume that I am selfish or inconsiderate just because I am unable to do things the way you are able to, or have different opinions.
from youngblood20 :
4/16~ *Raises Hand* This is one thing We have gone back and forth with since We have started TTC. I really really wanna cloth diaper. But I know NOTHING about it. I wanna make the diapers ect but I dont know where to start.. I dont know BASICS .. Can you help me out? LOL I need to know EVERYTHING lol No kids yet so I know nothing.. :)
from souljourn :
E, Maybe you could work 1/2 days that way you could work a bit and handle your personal affairs as well? Or perhas 1 day off per week to get things in order?
from souljourn :
Awwww E! I'm feeling just awful hearing all that mess you have to go through w/ the registry. It was supposed to make things easier and more organized. Try to think positive. This too shall pass, and when it does, you'll have the cutest, most adorable lil baby in your arms smiling at you and Pete. Hang in there! Hugs, M
from souljourn :
Hello E: I can't take credit for the new design Evil Edna did it for me. She's such a sweetheart!...btw, wasn't trying to give you a spelling lesson. You spelt it right, but your use of the word is for the "plural". Hugs, M
from souljourn :
Hello E: *round of applause* Proud of you for reading that syllabus, and keeping the instructor on her toes.

Hello E: Sounds like all of the details are really coming together quite nicely for ya'll. Hugs, M!

Aw Shucks E! That is the cutest pose...chin resting on hands.
from souljourn :
E the shower invites are adorable!
from souljourn :
E, be sure to post a pix, I'd love to see what the new furniture looks like! I bet its adorable! Oh by the way, there are a lucky few women, who don't get any stretch marks atr all. From what I understand it has to do with your genetics and the amount of elasticity in your skin type. Hugs, M
from souljourn :
Hello E: You are just too sweet. Thank you for the encouragement. These days I'd been feeling a bit discouraged, because the weight isn't coming off, rather inches are. Its 6 of one 1/2 dozen of the other I suppose. I'm alive and in remission - what more could I possibly want?! Really now?! ...From the sounds of it, the little one is going to be here so soon. I sure hope you and hubby are ready! Hugs, M
from souljourn :
The pumpkin announcements are darling! I also like the name Lucas Leslie. Has a certain ring to it. Hugs, M
from souljourn :
Merry Christmas! Hugs, m
from souljourn :
You killed me with this line <snip> "...I think his brain reached it's capacity in 1975." Classic. Glad you had the diary to get this off your chest. Hope you and the baby are doing fine! Hugs, M
from souljourn :
Hello E!
from souljourn :
Praying that you get the condo sold. How very exciting about the new job possibility! Keep us posted girl! Hugs, M

from zspecialkz :
Dear Paszzobello, It is me again, probably your youngest reader. Right now I am in my college english class working on a term paper on how people affect who we are. One of the people groups is the unborn and how we change ourselves in anticipatation for their arrival. I was wondering if you could say something about this, how being pregnant and looking forward to your child's arrival has changed you and your husband. I need one more source and you would be a perfect one. Well, thanks for your time! Kalene
from doombilly :
right, my EX said this once, "Ass Ponys has to be the worst name for a band, ever..." I think Throbbing Gristle, The Circle Jerks, and Anal Cunts,...have them beat by miles. Sorry about the language there. But it does ilustrate my point, no? Glad you like the diary. Sorry I've been so lax in keeping it up.
from grafx-pit :
Hey there. Nice diary. Just read that you're looking for a template? You can check out my site if you like... I'd love to help ya out. ;)
from orchdreamer :
omg! that baby playing the drums picture is sooo cute!!!! It makes me want to laugh and go awwww at the same time. and believe me that's hard to do! haha well have a great day! bye
from zspecialkz :
Hey thanks for the note. Sorry if I was a little harsh on some of the names... Was in a silly mood since I've been home sick for five days now. Family names are cool. I come from a Mennonite/Amish family so I would have names like Iry, Firman, Ida, Arlowene, and Norine to chose from. Don't get me wrong, I love my family dearly, but chances are I won't be using their names. :-) Well, happy pregnancy.
