I'm trying to buy a gift here and there, so I don't have to do it all a week before Christmas! I've already got Connor almost finished, there's just a couple more items I want to get him-- more necessity stuff for potty training lol. I'm hoping to get a list from DH's side of the family so we can start on them, too!

Ugh. I don't even want to think about Christmas! It has been a hard year for us and honestly we are pretty broke. I have a couple stocking stuffers for DD and nephew I've picked up here and there, but that is it. Normally, I start Christmas shopping around May. I need to get some ideas and I have a few things I'd like to make for them, to stretch the budget. I've got one idea for that so far, but need to look for some more.

What is everyone's plans for today?

No Christmas shopping yet, though I'm sure I'll pick up some stuff at Disney next week to save for Christmas. I do most of my shopping in November.

Hmmm, plans for today.... homeschool, grocery shopping, a little cleaning up around here. It's cloudy and cool so I'm feeling lazy this morning... ;)

No Christmas shopping yet. Well, I guess I did buy one small thing for Sophia, but that's it. I can't believe how close it's getting, though!

Plans for today... I start training my replacement at work this afternoon!!! Just 5 weeks left!!!

Re: Chit Chat Challenge 2!!!
 
My plans for today are to lay low. I'm not feeling well. I do have a couple of things I need to get done, but I am going to try and take it easy.

I have started my christmas shopping already. I just need to get a few more things for Avery and gifts for my inlaws and I am done!

Today is a holiday here. I am going to do some housework and then enjoy some time with DH and my daughter!

Urgh, has anyone dealt with re-current yeast infections that don't seem to want to go away? (sorry if this is TMI)

I have only had one before, about 10 years ago. Well 1 month ago I took antibiotics and got one :(... talk about uncomfortable! I treated it with 1 day thing, but I was still on the antibiotics and it came back. So then I treated it with a 3 day treatment and it went away.

Fast forward to last week, a month later, and it is back. I treated it with a 3 day treatment and while I do feel a lot better it is not gone.

Do I get another treatment and try again? Go see the dr? Any insight would be appreciate. Thanks ladies.

I've never had a yeast infection, so I have no idea :( That sucks, though. Can you just call your office and inquire, without making an appt? They can probably tell ya whether you need to go in or can do something at home. :hug:

Hiii everyone. I'm blah :(

I get YI every so often, maybe 1-2 a year usually. I used to get them when I was a kid alot too. You could try taking probiotics and eating yogurt when you are on antibiotics to help prevent you from getting it. I would try another treatment before going to the doc. Personally I use the 5 day generic one from walmart, it is about $5 and it seems like the ones with more treatments help more then ones with fewer. Get the external itch lotion as well and put some on every time you go to the bathroom. For me, that seems to help clear it up much faster then just the other treatments.

I started Christmas shopping at the beginning of August, since DH will be leaving for work on the 18th we'll do Christmas with him that day and then still do Christmas morning so I'm trying to have plenty for her to open, even if its little things. So far I haven't spent over 15$ on one thing but her big gifts are going to be a slide from us, a trike from my grandpa, a doll nursery and carriage from my mom, and the little people animal farm from my grandma. I also got her a princess tent, it was 10$ at the dollar store and she is gonna love it, I'm excited to give it to her! I'm gonna give her a lot of disney movies(things we can't watch on netflix) books, puzzles, balls, and baby doll stuff.

Yep! If she comes right around her due date. It's getting so close, I'm getting really excited! I'm also really looking forward to those weeks in between to get everything ready and just spend some one-on-one time with my pup before his whole world changes. I'm really worried how he's going to react.

Speaking of dogs and babies, anyone have any specific tips or things they did to introduce your dog to the new baby?

Rachel - sorry to hear about the YI. I've never had one, so I don't have any advice for you there, but I can imagine how frustrating that is. Hope it gets better soon!

DH is on his way home, yay! I really hope we get to do something nice this afternoon. But it is really cold out... so who knows.
Hope everyone is having a good Sunday.

Thanks for the YI info. I will try another treatment before going to the doctor.

when we brought helena home we had 2 dogs....with the other 2 we didn't get dogs til they were older so it was pretty easy...but we just kept her in her car seat for a bit to let the dogs get used to the baby and the car seat then took her out and let the dogs sniff her and then they really had no interest in her after that LOL....
