Good Wednesday Morning 5/5/04

  1. Good Morning All! How is everyone doing today? And before Walter gets on me about it, I thought of a good question for today....what is your skin care routine? Yes, even you men.....

    For my face, I have an exfoliant that I use daily and then a special lotion that I put on before my make up. It helps it to look smoother. Then, at night I have Oil of Olay face cleanser and nighttime cream. My body gets the best kind of lotion I can find at a good price. Right now it is Nivea because we got a good deal on a huge amount at Sam's Club. I suffer from really dry skin most of the year, so I have to have lotion all the time, but I can't stand those greasy icky ones. Keri was another one I liked.

    Well, we are off to Buffalo today to go to Children's for Trey and his GI (we think) problems. We might head to Chuck E Cheese afterwards since it is going to be too cold for the zoo. If by some miracle it warms up past sixty, then we'll head to the zoo, where it is much cheaper! LOL! I'm sure I'll have some fun pics to share after today and probably lots of questions of what you guys think after the appointment. I hope that I like this dr. I have become particular in who sees Trey because others don't seem to want to listen to us. Now, he has been pretty healthy for over a month, so they probably won't listen too!

    Alright you guys...even though I'm not here, I expect lots of chatter so I have lots to read when I get back! Don't disappoint me! I'll also have to check threads from the last 24 hours because I can't miss anything! LOL! At any rate, it gives me something to do tonight when I get back and get the kids into bed. Nothing much on TV so I'll hang out with you guys.

    Have a wonderful, joy-filled, fabulous day today!

    Hugs all around....

    well we got the first coat of paint on the baby's room last night. it looks awsome. really don't even need a full second coat just touch ups. mil will be over this evening after work to finish.

    baby still isn't sleeping at night. i think her inscisors (sp?) and bicuspids are all cutting at once. we went through this at 7 months with her first eight teeth. she cut 3 teeth in 28 hrs that time. dh is very opposed to her sleeping with us, but it just means that i start out in bed and end up on the couch holding her. at least that way i get some sleep.
    been out to my friends house and did her wound care. working on the kitchen, and have had my first cup of coffee. goal for the day. bathe the dog, clean up the house, and take a nap.

    girls are up. i cheated and gave them donuts for breakfast. i am sooooo going to regret that in about 45 min when the 5 yo crashes off the sugar. oh well maybe we will take a walk before it starts to rain.

    [font=franklin gothic medium]morning has broken, like the first morning,...bluebird has spoken....(cat stevens, thank you.)

    [font=franklin gothic medium]not much going on...on my second cup of coffee...
    [font=franklin gothic medium]back to lowe's today. lol.

    [font=franklin gothic medium]skin care? not much of a regimen here. i hate to say it, but lately i have been washing with regular soap, whatever is in the shower (dial!), and then applying a special avon cream from the avon lady called "moisture 24." that's it! lol.

    [font=franklin gothic medium]have a good one! enjoy the beach, painting, or whatever you all are doing! hope the hospital visit goes well, kim.

    well kate on weekends he gets stuck dealing with her... I work a Bradley program so from Fri night until Sun morning there all his.

    and I don't know maybe he has a point. My cousin was one of those kids who slept with her parents until she was 3 and then only transfered to a toddler bed at the foot of her parents bed. DH and I love our space. Much as I love my kids I love the fact that my room and bathroom are a baby and dog free zone except with special permission.

    Daughter #1 wasn't a cuddle bug like this. Still cant sleep with another soul anywhere near her. And he worked part time and stayed at home with her.

    Thought about going to the beach today but its supposed to rain. So whats with the sunshine? But if I get in the car and load up the girls the skys will open. lol

    Facial routine apricot scrub twice a day followed by coco butter and plenty of sunscreen in between (what ever I use for the kids)

    Morning all... late getting started online today, but I've been up awhile. Got a little of the cleaning started. I told Jas last night that if he came home from work and saw lots of trash bags on the deck, not to worry, just take them on to the curb and all would be fine! I've got to get some sort of order going on around here again.. it won't be long until school starts, and I KNOW I will not be in the mood to clean what few moments I have that are free. I managed to tackle the kitchen and living room before I sat down here.

    DH took off work again today.. going to the dr finally. We'll see what's up when he gets home this afternoon. I have somewhat of a bad feeling about this, but ... well, we'll see.

    At any rate, I'm off to snoop around a bit online, and then I'll dive back into got two rooms done.. now I've just got to work on the other nine! Hope everyone has a good day...

    The weather is beautiful here today too... should be up in the 80's by mid afternoon.. I wanna go to the beach!!!!

    Cat Stevens is one of my faves! I have his Teaser and the Firecat on vinyl.

    Skincare...St. Ives clear pore cleanser morning and night for washing my face. Nivea or Oil of Olay lotions for my face. I use Pro Activ Repairing Lotion every night to keep the zits at bay and weekly I use Biore Pore Strips and a Mint Julep Mask by Queen Helene. On my body I always use Lubriderm or sometimes some Bath and Body Works if I'm aiming to smell super nice I'm SUCH the girly girl! :chuckle

    I'm off and having a lazy day today. Hoep you are all doing well. Good luck with your little boy and his tummy trouble.
