    Will Harry Potter die?

    July 21st is going to be Harry's 17th birthday, no? His magical coming-of-age where he is no longer a child? Yikes!!! Love the title!

    BRYAN WILLIAM Is Here!!!

    First of all, congratulations Marla on the birth of your new grandson! I'm so glad everything went well and that your daughter and the baby are doing great. :) That said... I'm so sorry to hear about both Cammy and Melissa. I didn't know you had lost a daughter years ago, and my heart goes out to you. I'm just so sorry, I don't know what else to say really. I can't imagine what that must have been like, and what Cammy's family is going through right now. It sounds like she got NEC, which is something we NICU nurses wish could be prevented or cured more than anything. Just like with Cammy, it can take a preemie that is doing awesome and turn things upside down in a matter of hours. It's just not fair, the way this world works sometimes. You take care.

    I'm old, fat, and out of shape. And Hungry!

    EXACTLY!!! You were sick as a dog and yet, because you lost weight, people were happy for you! :uhoh3:

    I'm old, fat, and out of shape. And Hungry!

    I feel for you, believe me... I just had a baby 25 days ago. I gained 24 pounds with the pregnancy. In the three weeks following delivery, I lost 29 pounds. So yes, I am actually 5 pounds UNDER my pre-pregnancy weight. By most standards, that is EXCELLENT. But nooooooooooo... As soon as certain people hear this, they say, "That's good, now if you want to lose more weight..." and then give their opinions. Yes, I know I'm overweight. That's one of the reasons I only gained 24 pounds - I didn't eat for two while I was pregnant. I ate normally, which for me was already obviously TOO MUCH for one person or else I wouldn't have been overweight to begin with! :uhoh3: The reason I lost 5 pounds was because I actually ate better while pregnant, and the 24 pounds really, truly was baby herself and edema. I am already in my regular blue jeans. But since they happen to be plus size jeans, people feel entitled to express their opinions. They think because I lost 29 pounds that I'm off to a great start on some crazy diet plan. Uh, no. I just was careful not to add to my weight problem while having a baby. I hope to lose REAL weight now, sure, who doesn't? But I'm pretty darned happy with myself right now for having a healthy pregnancy (weight-wise) and am so tired of people making me feel bad...

    Grey's Anatomy- New Season!!!Awesome!!

    THANK YOU!!! She's like Super Doc or something. Is she an OB/GYN, neonatalogist, or pediatric surgeon? Because she routinely is seen doing all three jobs - and supposedly is THE BEST in her field at all of them. Very unrealistic. It reminds me of when I used to watch General Hospital. Bobbie was a nurse at GH, and she seemed to work on every single unit, depending on which character was hospitalized. She'd be in the ER one day, the NICU the next, OR the following week, then the ICU...

    It's a GIRL!!!!!!!!

    Hey everybody!!! Just wanted to let y'all know that I had my baby on December 21st after a looooooong induced labor. I ended up having a c-section but am recovering well. My daughter is just gorgeous (if I do say so myself) and is doing great! She was 6 pounds, 7 ounces and was 19-1/2 inches long. We got discharged on Christmas Eve and have only been home a few hours now! Gotta run, but here's a picture...

    Positively brilliant! "South park" de-constructed...

    I haven't watched it in years, either. I used to love it, but there was one episode that just really upset me. It was the one where Mr. Garrison was all upset that his father didn't sexually abuse him as a child because he felt it meant his father didn't really love him. I was so disgusted I turned it off and never looked back.

    Favorite Holiday Movie

    Definitely "A Christmas Story" by far. Isn't it TNT that plays it continuously for 24 hours on Christmas Eve? I have it on ALL DAY LONG... Also like "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" because it brings back memories of watching it as a kid.

    Positively brilliant! "South park" de-constructed...

    My best friend since childhood is a gay man, so this is always a sensitive topic for me... There are many stereotypes about homosexuality that bug me, and South Park hit on one of the biggest and most taboo: pedophilia. This one especially hurts me because my friend is the greatest guy in the world and absolutely loves kids, and it kills me to think that there are people out there who could possibly think he'd be a danger to them. This could not be further from the truth! :angryfire South Park is right - if the scouts want to exclude gay men from their organization that is their choice. But I'm just glad that someone finally had enough guts to show the world that pedophilia has nothing to do with one's sexual preference. This should be common sense, but obviously it's not and like I said, it kills me to think about what goes through people's heads sometimes...
