We just started mygym yesterday for Colin. He absolutely loved it. He tried to take over the place! He was running all over.. it was like a gold mine for him, as we dont have a lot of space in our house, so the open floor just had him crawling around like a mad man.

We are trying to get ourselves together for our trip to Disney next Friday. We will be staying in my parents house, so I need to get baking to bring down bread and some snacks. It feels so overwhelming just for a vacation. I know most of you have done this already, this is a first for me and I need to sit and put things in perspective.

Hi Stephanie,

I love MyGym! My nieces went there frequently when they were younger, such a great place for kids. One of them even had their birthday party there, they did such a great job and everyone had so much fun.

Good luck with preparing for your vacation :) Just take some deep breaths and everything will fall into place. I think it gets easier with time, becoming almost routine taking care of the many little details of a special diet.

Linda,

You sure have been busy! I'm glad that both of the boys, and you :lol: , are enjoying hockey and that's great that Ty is joining in and really making a lot of progress on the diet :)

Has anyone been following the reports on the latest hostage situation/school tragedy in Colorado? It's upsetting to think about how easily it was for this guy to come into the school with a gun, take the 6 girls hostage, sexually assault all of them and then kill one of them. So very scary, sad and tragic.

Julie,

I think I saw a headline a couple days ago but I didn't click it to find out where the school was located. I have not read anything about it.

Yes julie.. I have been as much as my stomach will allow. It makes me physically sick how these things happen. I think back to how naive I was in high school. I couldnt even imagine that happening.. now its more and more frequent. I feel so deeply for those kids in that school and those poor girls. They are scarred forever. The one that was killed, may her soul rest in peace. The poor girl. I pray for all of them that live in that town. It must be awful

Julie,

I've been following the Colorado school story. My question is--how did that man get into the school in the first place? The school I worked at here had locked doors, and when you check in, your face appears on a screen in the main office. If you don't have legetimate business there, you won't be let in. I don't know--possibly he lied his way in?

It's just so unfortunate. That poor girl, she had just turned 16. The whole thing is just so sad.

From what I understand, the school is not locked down, unless I heard wrong. It's in a relatively small town so maybe that is the reason. They just held a press conference and I was watching it, they have video of the guy sitting in his car on the school grounds, so they suspect he had been there at least an hour before going in.

There are conflicting reports that he asked a student where he could find a list of certain students and he was directed to the classroom, again not verified, but I can't help but think was this a situation where he found these specific girls on MySpace, or something similar, if it was planned out or what.

I guess we will see as we learn more.

I feel very badly for all the girls who were assaulted, and how very tragic the one who was shot died.

Boy, you think kids are safe at school.....

So very upsetting.

Julie,

I just went and read the article online. My daughter wanted to know what was going on. I wonder how much this will haunt me the next few days or whatever. She scares easily. Makes me glad I'm homeschooling. I reiterated that she could make friends at church, she didn't need to go to school for that. We haven't been to church much lately. Once Mitch has healed up enough he will take the older two so they can go and Seth won't have his nap messed up all the time, unless we go to our old church, then the drive would be long enough if he fell asleep right away.

I live in a smaller town and would think it was totally safe from this type of thing also.

I have to wonder if the swat team made things worse for the girl that got shot. The article said she tried to run at that time and the guy shot her then himself.

So sad. :(

Like it.

Patti has a new one of her kitty that is cute too.

Rachelville is almost dead because your smiling face isn't here. :)

We've all branched out into helping newbies and such I think.

How's school going?

I've started homeschooling my daughter (1st grade). If she wouldn't be so hard on herself it would be much easier. :P

Carla,

Morgan's smiling face is probably another reason this thread hasn't been very active. :)

Hope all is well with her.

Yes, she's finding college to be a little harder than she expected, but she's adjusting well and making friends. She has no time for Rachelville now. :( I'm sure she'll pop in occassionally to say hi though.

Patti-Allo is looking damn fine!.Such a handsome chap :lol:

Thanks Nikki! You know, I really think the gluten-free cat food is making a difference with him. His coat, which has always been beautiful, is even softer and isn't matting at all on his back. He's throwing up less, too :rolleyes: Guess gluten wasn't so good for him, either. I just wish I'd changed him over a year ago! :D

How are your kitties doing?

:( I have a sick kitty!!

Poor Felix (my rather large shiny black kitty) has bad teeth and has to go into the vets next week to have all his teeth out :blink:

I noticed he wasn't eating much,and wasn't his usual friendly self and he was dribbling alot,so took him to the vets and he said all his teeth are rotten and they have to come out (although they will try to salvage any if they can)

Poor thing-it was such a trauma getting him in the travel box.He knows as soon as he sees it where he's going! He cried like a baby all the way there,(and wet himself! :( ).I don't think he likes the car journey either.

Anyway he's on antibiotics and Prednisilone until his op next week.

The vet said once his gums heal he'll be able to eat fine as the gums harden up.

Oh no! Poor Felix :( That sounds terrible. At least after the operation, and he heals up, he shouldn't be in pain anymore. The poor little thing. :( So, he'll be able to eat--that's interseting (and good).

That's the sad thing about a pet--they can't tell us when somethings wrong, so a lot of times when we notice something it's already progressed.

My cat dosen't like to go in the car either--of course the only place he ever goes in the car is the vet! :D

Please let me know how Felix does next week.

On a completely different note, is your son still scheduled for his procedure this Friday? Boy, you have a lot to deal with right now!

Yep, Alan is scheduled for Friday ( Oh please god don't let it be cancelled again)

We have to ring the ward before we leave on Fri morning to check it's still on.

I hate uncertainties <_<

Felix is booked in for next Wednesday.

* wringing hands * So much anxiety!! (My eczema is flaring up big time! :o )

My Dad is quite OCD -- did you ever see "As Good As It Gets"? Well, that fits my dad to a T!! He brushes his dog's teeth every time the dog eats! :lol::lol:

LOL! :lol:

I'm not even gonna go there!!

I have another cat ,and she can be nasty! She'd scratch me to ribbons .

I don't know why but I've found that castrated males make much better pets.

Ooops :blink: LOL! I think the above statement could apply to men too!!! :lol::lol:
