Hi all,

I had a long morning.I went in to work at six.Was sent home by 8:30.

Got home and layed back down.D21 woke me up about a half hours later.Had a splitting headache.Not like anything she has ever had.So we went to the hospital.

Her Magnessium was real low.So they gave her a IV of it.He blood sugar was low so they gave her two bags of IV and told her to stop pigging out and then not eating for long periods.To eat 6 small meals at once.

She had gotten up at 6 this morning and eaten 3 cold peices of pizza.They said she raised her blood sugar and then it dropped.

So when she finally gets that medicade and see's a Dr they are going to have to watch that.She is hypoglosimic.(extra points if I spelled that right)

This being a Grandma thing is not as easy as I thought it was going to be.And the baby isn't even here yet.Still due christmas day.

My apartment is starting to feel so small.My best friend offered to rent a room for D21.She lives in a huge house with 4 bedrooms.That may work for a while.And give me a break.LOL

Well I have things to do.My apartment is so messy.And no one is home.

Hi there Bridget,

Haven't "talked" to you in a long time...

Your daughter needs to take care of herself now. I remember with the twins is was so hard to eat at all because I had the most horrible heartburn you could imagine. Had it with the other two and I thought that was bad, but the twins were bumping up against my esophagus (now I need points) and it was tough to eat anything. Maybe thats why I had 14 1/2 pounds of babies and only gained 20 pounds.

So she needs to get off the pizza and give you a break. It might not be a bad idea to give you a break for a while and let her stay with your house endowed friend. Maybe you could get some sleep. Because you need to take care of Bridget too.

D21 has no problem eating.In fact she eats to much at once.Then gets full and sleeps for hours.

I have been trying to get her to go for a walk.She has already put on 15 pounds.She always needed to put on a few.But now is not the time to do that.I keep telling her she shouldn't put on to much since it won't come off as easy.I want to gain the healthy 30 to 35 pounds.But when I'm not here she eats huge amounts.I'm going to stop buying junk food.

Not much going on here.I had a date tonight.But I'm tired so I canceled.We plan on going on a Sun Cruz tomorrow night and play some poker and slots.

I'm going to bed early tonight.I need a good nights sleep.

My date just canceled.But it's all good.I had a backup plan.

I'm going out to shoot some pool.I don't work tomorrow and the sitter had already come and got D13.We were suppose to go on a gambling cruise.In fact we were suppose to leave about a hour ago.He canceled a half hour ago.

Bummer!! He just don't know about me.This is the second time he has canceled.Plus I canceled last night.

I'm thinking we are just not that into each other.Nice lookin man.But hey good lookin ones are a dime a dozen.Good looking men with manners are rare.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.I know I will.LOL

Hi all,

How is everyone?Me I'm good.

Still have moody pregnant 21 living with me.She will be 22 on the 29th.Wow they grow up fast.This one faster than I wanted.But well she is grown.Not much I can do about it.She still hasn't found a job.I don't think she will find one since she is showing big time.Gotta admit that belly is cute as all get out.

D13 mood swings have swung to the happy side.That God for that.

S18 still living with me.Gives me most of his paycheck.I try to turn it down since he is saving for a car.But he told me that with D21 in the house I'm struggling.He can't sit by and let that happen when he doesn't need a car right now.His job is less than a block away.I did good with that one.

Job is about the same.I have gotten some managment classes in.I have no plans to become a manager.But this will be good when it is time for a pay raise.

I have decided to let my date from last weekend have another chance.But I did tell him if he cancels again don't ask me again.LOL

We are going to go on a casino cruise this friday.That is if he doesn't cancel.LOL

Thats about it.Exciting huh?

Hey Briget:

Sounds like you've got your hands full. Gotta be a lot of estrogen in your house!

Your son sounds like a peach. What a guy. To put up with a moody teen and a pregnant sis, contribute financially - you've done really well with him.

Yeah, see how your date goes this week. It does sound like fun. If he doesn't meet your expectations just say...

NEXT!

Hi Brigit!

Good on the boundary thing with the date. I hope he follows through this time. The casino cruise thing sounds like fun.

And your son is awesome!

Hi all,

Well my date wsa wonderful.Ok a little background on this one.I'm still suprised about it.

He is my co-captain for my pool league.About three years ago he joined my team.I had known him about a year before that.So I have known him for quit a while.

Every Monday he picks me up and takes me to the pool hall.We always talk and laugh on the way there.Just never saw him that way.Just friends.Very good friends.He is a smart,funny and very nice guy.Good lookin to.In his own way.LOL

Well about two weeks ago (was it) I went out on a date with the guy who took me to a really gross dive bar.I was not impressed.

That following monday I was joking with league guy (thats what I will call him)about my date.The guy came over to ask me if I wanted to go out.League guy kind of postioned himself in between us and just started talking rambling nonsense.lol The guy gave up and I haven't heard from him since.lol

At the end of the night he asked me out.He has never done that.We have gone out as friends.But not as a real date.

I told him I didn't want to change our friendship.That I would go if we made sure we didn't change our friendshio. Two canceled dates on his and one on mine we went out last night to the casino boat.(I'm down 20 bucks) Had a good time.And he has a really good sense of humor.Cause my sister who is a prankster got wind of our date and pulled a good one.Just to let you know if you can come up with a good prank I'm all ears.

She gathered every family member she could get of ours and went on the cruise.They dressed is very outlandish outfits.And came up to us while we were out to sea already.No running.Although I thought I was going to jump overboard.lol

League guy thought this was funny as all getout.Could not stop laughing.Said I had a nice family.lol

They even brought S18 who had a good time just going from slot machine to slot machine trying to win.

O yeah and I slept with him.I think our friendship has changed.Opps.He kissed me and that was it.I just let go.I didn't expect this.And I don't know how I feel.What if this blows up in my face?Or worse turns out to be wonderful.I don't know which is worse.

So that's it.

Ummm Briget...

I thought you wanted to stay friends. Sometimes you need to show a little more restraint. Sometimes it is better when you wait a little longer. OK, that said...

I hope you are happy and have no regrets. Sounds like you had a good time.

Wow three days since I posted.A lot has happened since then.

Barb,No regrets.Not one.So far this has turned out to be wonderful.He really is a great guy.I'm still a bit gun shy.But so far so good.It feels good that we were friends first.

I don't think that I said that I wanted to just stay friend.I just don't want to lose the friendship.That comes first.He is one of the few rare people who will call me to the carpet when I really need it.He pulls no punches.But somehow does it in a way that doesn't hurt.If you asked me who I count as a close friend I would have named him as one of my top five.

I didn't think he was interested in me.We are so different.But we like the same things.We have different backgrounds.But have some similarities.(sp).

He was born in Korea.But was adopted and raised by an american family.I was raised in foster homes.I know it is not the same.But yet it sort of feels like a common bond.

We like the same things.He understands that I'm not a girly girl.I don't wear dresses.(I love how I look in them.)I love to play games that most woman only kind of sort of like.I'm competitive.I love to win.He has never let me win at anything.I have to win because I was better.I like that.

I think I could ramble on about him.But I won't.lol

I know this has changed things.But for once I'm going to take a flippin chance.He just may be the first one that is truely worth it that has come alone in a long time.

Wish me luck.or at least common sense enough to ruin a good friendship.
