I completely snapped today

Mostly just a vent.

Second day back at school and both my boys have come home each day upset about being bullied. Big D came home with a cut on his chin from being pushed down on ice.

Poor DS has been bullied since kindergarten and no matter who I spoke to or how much I nagged NOTHING WAS DONE! some might even remember when I blew my top that as a part of the get along anti bullying program DS was put in a group WITH HIS BULLY and then got in trouble for not participating, because his bully was bullying him...duh!

So today I snapped. I called the principal and asked him to please one way or another deal with this bullying because at this point I had given my boys permission to defend themselves even if that meant punching/pushing back.

This is a newer principal and he handled it (me) amazingly. He said he would get to the bottom of what was going on and check back in with me tomorrow.

It's a damn good thing victim services approved IC for both dd and myself. All the stress of just her situation has left me a mess. She text me today that she doesn't want to be at school and definitely doesn't want to be on the bus with her exbf.

Even if i wanted to drive her i can't since wh van broke a front sway bar link so he is using my van. That in itself is a stress that keeps me up at night for reasons that can't be mentioned here. I would have had the van fixed myself by now except I don't want to be working under it while alone at the house. Knowing my luck the jack would give out and the van would crush me. Not that I need to be under the van really but since I really should do the strut and sway bar on the other side as well I just feel better with someone else there while I work.

I'm going to have to take legal action against the horse owner since I still haven't heard anything from him. I spent today rounding up horses that were running around the house, fixing fences AGAIN, and standing guard at the water trough while it filed for a second time because that bloody mare likes to knock it over.

The only horse who behaved and stayed on his side of the fence was my mustang.

Christmas with my family this past weekend was bittersweet. My mom lasted all of an hour before she had to go to bed. She was exhausted and sick. I will say that she taught is kids well. My brothers and I prepared and served the traditional meal. The kids enjoyed themselves with my dad who is holding on but doesn't look that well.

The older of my brothers was a mess worrying that mom was having a stroke again and kept taking her blood pressure. It was normal. I had to step into eldest child role and tell him to calm the hell down. Yes they are aging and need help but neither of our parents need to be babied. Mom is ok. She has the flu and after pushing herself to much the week before our Christmas she just needed to rest.

I have a constant headache, my earache isn't responding to the drops I was given, I'm tired but can't sleep and I either eat to much or not at all.

And all of the above is just the highlights of the shit going on. There's other stuff. 2023 is not starting off on the right foot at all at the dragon cave!

Can an ear piercing cause an inner ear infection?

For my birthday in November I got a double helix piercing on the top of my left ear with spiral jewelry.

It's still getting crusty and very sore. Not unusual since my first helix in my right ear done ages ago was so bad I ended up taking out the hoop. Last year when wh got all of his piercings the person re did my helix and it heeled just fine. He said it had been done in the wrong spot.

I cannot move the double helix jewelry. It's very tight. I found conflicting advice. Where I got my daith done they said never touch the piercing, never rotate the jewelry, don't even clean unless in a shower. The daith was painful until I had new jewelry put in by the other person and was told to clean it daily and move the jewelry. It healed quickly after doing that.

So over the weekend my left ear started to ache inside then the pain got so bad I had to take meds and that just took the edge off. Today I put a hot compress on it and felt extreme pressure inside for a bit then total relief. But it didn't last long, it's hurting again. There's also alot of gunk from the piercing.

Can a piercing infection travel to the inner ear?

When I was a kid I had an ear infection in this ear so bad that there was a huge pop and loads of pus came out and I ended up with low tone deafness. I'm sure that has gotten worse since if someone comes up on my left side from behind and says something I usually don't realize it.

I dont think it's my sinuses because I can breathe fine and nothing comes out with the neti pot.

All I do know is this pain is awful.

You can love something but still be totally exhausted and frustrated!

Today is one of those days.

I love being on a farm.

I love having farm animals.

I love this life.

I'm also totally exhausted and fruatrated from today's events. That doesn't invalidate my love for it. It just means that it's not all cupcakes and roses! Some days really are hard. Today. Today sucked.

I was getting dressed when the driveway alarm went off. Turned on the front camera on my phone to see that damn mare running up the driveway and onto the road.

Pure panic. Threw on some clothes over my pjs, grabbed my boots, a halter and lead and went after her. You can't run at her. She spooks way too easy. At first she ran back down the driveway AT me then turned and bolted on the road again. Thank God it's open so drivers can see and there was no traffic.

Horse decides running through the ditch is a better way back to the herd which was watching her from the right side of the fence. And I swear shaking their heads!

Well 6 feet worth of snow and doesn't she get stuck. This gave me my opportunity to crawl down to her, halter her and hold her there til the kids brought me a longer lead. She had been struggling so much to get out she was exhausted. We both just sat there, me trying to figure out what the hell I was going to do next. Then the kids came with the longer lead, I hooked it up to her and she got a jolt of energy. We both made it up to the road again. Once I got her walked past our gate we shut it.

It's hard to keep that gate shut in the winter. It can freeze shut. And stopping the vans to open/close it can cause them to get stuck. It's a shitty entrance.

The rest of the day was spent with all of us (me and kids) putting up wood fences. Making a teepee type support than attaching them with 7 foot boards across, about chest height to the horses. Then crossers so they can't go under. Then a line of black electric flat rope. Came with the horses. Only problem is my energizer won't make it hot. IE send enough energy to zap them so I called my brother to tell him to get the horse owner to buy me one asap!

They are now confined to a small area behind the house where the round bales are. DS and I moved the second water trough over so it not only helps block part of the fence but is easy access in the confined area.

As I was filling that trough, that one mare decided to go for a fucking swim knocking the whole thing over. Had to start over.

She is a royal pain in the A$$!!!

Her owner hasn't come to see the mares in a year. No money given for feed. It's a shitty situation because now I'm legally responsible with them being on my property. Sad to say that's the last time I try to help out anyone with livestock!

The only other thing I can do now is fence off each side of the house to the fence lines so even if she gets out she can't get to the front. I still don't know how she got out today. The fences are up at the back around the round bales. Dd thinks she got out where the fence is along the driveway and the snow is high enough maybe she stepped over.

If I can get a good enough energizer I can line this entire area with this wider rope/tape and pray it zaps her enough to stay back from it.

Come summer I'm going to have to put wood posts into concrete. She's destroyed all of the T posts we put in and torn down the field fence.

Funny enough when I herded all the horses into the smaller area my mustang refused to go on his own. He knows that area was not for him. I had to lead him in the give him a treat.

Also their shelter is on the OTHER side of the small paddock so now I gotta get one up asap. They have a wind break thankfully.

This is just a hobby farm and some days it feels like Hell. That storm blew snow into the shed through the tiny ass door with the pigs so I had to dig them out then pile in more straw. So far so good.

Lost my big gelding a bit ago tangled in fence at the back and torn to bloody hell. Was told it looked like wolves. I've got motion lights and cameras but we saw and heard nothing that night. I was told to put up barbed wire on the outside of the fences but with this mare just ramming her way through fences she will cut herself up bad.

Between the wolves, coyotes, Mrs. Escapee Mare, and way to much damn snow, I'm mentally and physically drained.

I keep telling myself it's not always like this. Today was a bad day but maybe tomorrow will be great, hang in there.

My horsey friend called today and said that I got this. She knows how hard and heartbreaking it can be but I'm strong and will be ok.

Wishing you all a very Happy Holiday

I hope everyone is having a wonderful and safe holiday!

We are snowed in. We have been in a blizzard for 2 days. Snow drifts 4+ feet high, roads closed, people stuck, power outtages, state of emergency issued north/west of us. So far so good we have power. Blizzard has ended but snow squall warnings still in place. Police asking everyone to just stay home.

The kids LOVED Christmas. I put a Santa hat on Big Ds huge dino stuffy and then tried to squeeze it into the largest holiday bag I could find.

Little M wasn't to impressed with her toy hamster but the real ones were a hit.

DS cried when he saw his ATAT walker lego set. Three hours and it's together. He's so happy!

DD put on her Huggle and hasn't taken it off. Her necklace was a hit, same with her electric blanket, room led lights and lego sets.

I got a large folding art table, Game of Thrones series, kids got me a stuffy and candles lol

So awesome.

Now for dinner. Turkey is done. In perfect DragnHeart style I burnt my fingers lol


This has been a great day!

The season has finally stressed me out

Just a vent I guess...

I was very excited for Christmas this year. Still am I guess. But suddenly I am very stressed out.

We have an storm system approaching for the end of the week. That means travel isn't advised for Friday and the weekend. I'm ok with the weekend but now I have to do the grocery shopping early and that's thrown my OCD ass off schedule. We already got a huge dumping of snow yesterday and of course the auger belt on the snow blower broke so guess who shovelled...wh then did a big sweep with the tractor when he got home.

I had made very detailed lists of all the gifts for the kids.

I wanted to make sure they all had the same or close to the same number of gifts to open. I was short for Big D. So I ordered a few things off Amazon that I couldn't find anywhere.

Then wh went out shopping for me. Yes! He actually went out to buy me a gift. He did that for my birthday as well. First time in years...this is a man who hates crowds and can't stand to see the totals of bills/receipts.

Anyways, while out he picked up a ton of stuff for Big D. Some of it I had on my list to get this week, a Sonic the Hedgehog comforter and blanket, but then wh went crazy getting him the huge dinosaur toys. Ya know the ones that roar none stop and are a bitch to wrap lol

Now it's DS who is short on the list. Of course I got him the largest of all the gifts. The massive lego set he wanted. I also got him two smaller lego sets and two stuffys he wanted. Besides socks and underwear and their stockings I have no idea what else to get him. Maybe a star wars bed set? Ugh.

Once he opens the large lego set I'm 100% positive he will be off putting that together for the rest of the day.

I know it shouldn't be about the gifts but this is really the first time in so long we have been able to get the kids exactly what they asked Santa for.

I got almost everything wrapped yesterday. That felt good. The extra tubes and house for the hamster cage took me 30+ minutes to assemble. I am picking up the fur ball today and have to hide it. OMG! I am so glad they don't make noise!

I have three lists in front of me. Grocery, stockings list and last minute stuff. Oh and the gifts list of which ones are wrapped, which ones need to be and which are still to be picked up.

And I have the same lists typed out on my phone. I'm a list freak. Without them I'd most likely forget what I need to do/pick up, but staring at them I'm just like OMG how am I going to get this all done lol

And I'm still dealing with dd and all that shit. School called to let me know she skipped class. She's not eating alot again and is just constantly worried about running into exbf (who hasn't been to school since the incident). Three more days then she's off for two weeks. I'm hoping that helps!

DD has been threatened!!!

Dd broke up with her bf a while ago. She said he was controlling, not letting her spend time with her friends at lunch, saying she can't get anymore piercings or tattoos.

She was sick of it.

At first I thought things were OK then she sent me a photo of his hand (he still sits with her on the bus). He's been using a plastic knife to cut himself.

Also saying things like he will use a real knife, giving her timelines to when she will get back together with him, telling her friends things that aren't true... being manipulative and mean.

She didnt tell me all of this at first.

As soon as I got it all out of her I sent the photos to his mother who had no clue what was happening. His mom said she would talk to him.

Fast forward to today. Dd gets home and is rattled. She said he told her the angry part of him wants to hurt her.

I called the school, explained what was happening and was told an administrator will call me. Sitting here waiting...

The school has control over the bus so hopefully they can make sure they are separated.

I'll be talking to the driver tomorrow. I told DD to sit with one of her girlfriends from now on.

I told dd to habe her phone recording any time he's around her.

I was going to ask when I should involve the authorities but I think I'll just go call thr non emergency line and see what an officer has to say.

A little mojo or some prayers sent for dd (and me) woukd be really helpful right now smile

Fun question

How would you wrap a 4 foot dinosaur stuffy?

Yep. That's all that Big D asked Santa for so I got it. Last one. It's currently hidden in my closet.

Wrapping paper is just a no. Easily rips and I'd need two rolls lol

Garbage bag? Not very festive. Think there's Christmas bags out there large enough?

Giant box? That seems like a good idea but I don't have any. Guess I could put out an APB on our community page right?

Anyone got any other ideas?

Maybe stick a Santa hat on it and make it look like he's trying to eat the Christmas tree?

Is there a new bug going around?

I know influenza, rsv and covid are running amuck right now but is there something else out there anyone knows of or a new variant?

I feel awful and have for a week but it doesn't seem to fit with what everyone around here is experiencing.

I have mild nausea every day. More in the morning but it can hit any time. (No not pregnant).

I am tired, very tired but not fall asleep at table tired which is what I've heard other people describe their fatigue.

I'm finding it hard to drink and stay hydrated. Coffee either takes me all day to finish a single cup or just makes me sick to my stomach. Water makes me vomit. Plain tea is ok. Anything carbonated gives me bad heartburn.

Constant headache. It's there ALL the time and just varies in intensity.

It's been warmer thus rainy and damp and I thought maybe I'm just blah but it doesn't explain the nausea or not wanting to drink thing. I am eating. Snacking a bit during the day and then having a decent dinner.

No fever, no cough, no sniffles. Just an overall blahness.

I dont want to feel this way anymore. I'm actually excited about Christmas this year and still have stuff to do.

Anyone else just having weird sick feeling that doesn't fit anything?

Need opinions kid hit in eye

So little M was hit on her face with a dodge ball in phys-ed class while wearing her glasses on Wednesday.

Yesterday she didn't want to wear her glasses because her nose and around her left eye hurt.

It's a light purple under both eyes and there's a red mark on her nose from the glasses. There's no swelling. Today she wore her glasses but says it still hurts all around her left eye. Her nose doesn't hurt where the red mark is as much. Still light purple under both eyes.

My question is should I get an x ray done to see if there's any fracture around the eye? I mentioned doing that to someone and their response was not to since there nothing that can be done anyways so why risk her getting sick in a hospital when RSV and flu and Covid are going crazy.

The top sheet debate

I saw this hashed out on my community FB page and now I just read through the comments on a FB reel talking about this issue.

So I gotta ask....

Do you or do you not have a top sheet on your bed?

The issue is that younger people now aren't using top sheets which has the older generation in knots because the top sheet is there to protect the comforter/blankets from body oils etc. It's easier to wash a top sheet then a comforter.

Funny enough I do not have a top sheet anymore. My parents bought me/us a king size fuzzy blanket that's super warm in the winter. We actually have a fleece type bedset of sheets. Anyways I can easily wash the blanket.

Weirdly many nights I don't even have the blankets on me lol

My kids are even worse. Trying to get them to keep their fitted sheet on their mattresses OMG! I am constantly telling them to make their beds every day.

Child medication shortages?

Is this a world wide thing, North American thing or just a Canadian thing?

With the current state of infection of covid, influenza and RSV up here there's parents pleading for anyone with child acetaminophen to help with fevers.

Our children's hospital has postponed surgeries because they need the staff for the number of children now being admitted and our health units are recommending masks in all indoor settings.

Anyways, someone in my community group posted a dosing chart for acetaminophen using 325mg and 500mg pills for children 3 months and up based on weight.

According to the chart both of my older kids can take a full 500mg tab. Does this sound correct?

I usually don't medicate for low fevers. When my dragon hatchling were all sick a few weeks ago I didnt give them anything. Just kept up fluids and made sure they all got a lot of rest. They weren't sick more than 4 days but I kept them home longer to make sure. Other kids, I'm hearing, are sick for weeks with the same symptoms.

My twins were a part of a study that vaccinated against RSV to see if it prevented infection and hospitalization. When Little M did get very sick I was told it was probably that vaccination that prevented her from needing to be admitted.

Totally embarrassing but i need to discuss

So, ya, this is embarrassing but I'm curious if anyone else experiences this.

Every time I get my period I also get constipated. Like the system shuts down and as Gandolf said "you shall not pass!!!".

I hadn't had that damn monthly friend show up since September but she rolled in like the flood gates of Hell opened and as they opened the rear gates locked shut.

A trip down the Google rabbit hole and I discover this is common. Why did I never Google this before...

I always increase my Fibre intake, drink way more water than usual and frankly being tethered to the toilet because I gotta pee what feels like every hour, is nuts!

Hitting up the Restorlax now but I fear it'll rip the back gates off their hinges just when I'm taking in a physio session.

Why? Why does being female have to come with so much crap (or lack there of)...

Friends vs acquaintances

So I saw a reel on FB that I thought I saved but I can't find it. It was a woman saying that if you don't have any friends by your 30's then it's because you're just a bad friend. Or something like that.

Honestly it hit me hard.

My birthday is coming up. I'm in my 40's. I wouldn't say I have any close "friends". Acquaintances, sure, but "friends"

So that made me wonder, how others define friend vs acquaintance and do you feel that either or both are required for a fulfilling life?

For example, in my younger just out of high-school days I met a group of people online from Australia. We had our own club, hung out online, even called eachother. One male member and I kept in touch. He's like my dad's age. He's watched through pictures, me grow up, get married,watched my kids grow up. We don't talk every day. But when we do it's like no time has passed. To me, he's a friend,although a very distant one.

Then there's people I know from school that, sure we may talk more often, but I wouldn't call them friends. I'm civil, especially to the ones who treated me like shit while in school. Who am I kidding that was 99.8% of them.

I tend to have people feel comfortable to just unload all of their life crap on me and actually through alot of work I've gotten good at learning to just listen instead of trying to solve or help. But at the same time, I'm sick of everyone dumping on me. Where MY person to offer an ear or shoulder?

Yes I moved away from people. But I've been the happy nice person and gotten out in the community and there's just no one I feel I could be friends with.

Of course if someone wants something, help, money, I get tons of texts or calls or whatever. When I can't help, well I'm ignored. No those aren't the type I want as friends anyways and perhaps it's ok not to have that social group but it sucks too. For my brothers birthday all of his friends took him out for dinner.

I used to have a good group within the reptile/exotic pet hobby but I find now that there's so much bickering amongst people in the hobby it's just not worth re establishing contacts.

I recently joined some groups for like minded people for stuff and wow, the amount of you must do things this way, if you don't have this background then you can't do that. I. Not new to this craft and know enough yet to see actually newbies be shot down for just asking a question. Ugh. Same shit happens in the reptile hobby.

As much ad I wish I had friends taking me out for a birthday dinner I feel there's more peace being me with just me. Is that such a bad thing?

Need phone and computer help please

So I've always been able to plug my phone into our computer via USB cord and be able to download all the photos from my phone.

Went to do that the other day and nothing happened.

Rebooted both phone and computer snd nothing.

Today I plugged my phone in and a notification came up on the computer saying the "USB device not recognized".

What would cause this?

I did just have an IOS update on my phone.

All I can find on my phone is Link To Windows which is NOT what I'm looking to do. I dont want to answer calls through the computer.

The computer is running Windows 10 of that helps.

I've download pictures from this phone to thr computer before so I habe no idea why it isn't working now other than the update to my phone changed something.

It's a Galaxy A52

Any ideas or help is appreciated. grin

The lions mane, need hair help

I have been compared to a lion having a bad mane day more than once.

I have curly, wavy hair that will form ringlets.

I have struggled with my hair.

Being a red head, growing up being called carrot top. Ugh.

Now in my 40's the red has darkened and silver streaks are showing up.

Besides colouring purple for fun (also temporary)I have no plans to dye it.

The thing is I have always brushed it out and tied it up. Same Ole same Ole....

I'm tired of that.

So I got out the diffuser and spent some time allowing the curls to curl. Of course this looked good at first but then Bam! Frizz and loss of curl in certain areas.

When I went shopping I picked up products for curly hair. A defining cream, a gel for the ends and a defriz spray.

Testing them out tomorrow.

If you have curly, out of control hair, what's your go to products and routine?

My part is temperamental. I can part on the right or left but mainly in thr middle.

I wondered if how I used the diffuser was wrong so I watched videos and....not one said the same thing. Seriously.

Most of the time I don't even blow dry my hair, just leave it but of course if it's not brushed out when damp and put up its just one big fizzy mess. With winter on its way I can't go out with it wet/damp.

I just need some input into what others do.

TIA grin

Im getting the works!

I had my physio assessment and was told I have a 3-4 level whiplash injury. The issue is in my neck but is causing the pain, numbness and tingling in my shoulder, arm and hand.

So I am scheduled for therapy until close to Christmas. 3 times per week at first then down to 2/week.

Physio, chiropractor and massage. All of it. Like OMG!

The next day I got an email from my insurance saying they had approved the treatment plan and it was totally covered plus some if I need it.

This is exciting.

I do need to me mindful of what exactly causes the severe pain I experience. During her phsical exam there was no shooting pain.

Then last night I was adjusting myself in the sofa chair, pushing myself up and wow instant pain. There's also serious pain if I touch right below my collarbone.

Our van won't be ready for at least another week so I have arranged for a week extra for the rental. Hopefully thats enough.

It feels good to have my pain validated. Like ya I am hurting even if I'm not screaming. Last night's push left my arm aching all night, I had a serious headache start and I've been sore all day today. That's just from pushing myself up in a chair!

Has anyone here been a kidney donor?

My adoptive brother is in need of a new kidney. Since he was adopted into the family he's not a blood relative however he is family and I love him.

I've decided to go through to see if I can be a donor.

It's not just an out of the blue thing. I've been thinking about doing this for a long time. (One of those things I just haven't talked about that's all).

I have a call with the donor team Tuesday.

So has anyone here done it?

Just looking for some insight.

When the infidelity affects the kids

Every Friday I go do my weekly grocery shopping. Wh gets home early so he's there when the kids get home from school.

A few of weeks ago DD came running out as soon as I got home. NOT normal for her! She's always the last out to help bring stuff in.

She says to me she has to talk to me when no one is around. shocked

Turns out she saw wh work phone with text open to AP.

She didn't read through texts but saw APs name at the top where the contact info is.

She didn't want her dad to know she saw it so I promised not to say anything to him about how i knew but I did confront him later asking why, if AP had quit, was he still talking to her.

Of course wh claimed he wasn't at first until he realized I wasn't giving in. Then he admitted to talking to her. Since I have cameras and Vars I assume he just thinks I know that way.

I know he is hopeless and there's no saving the marriage. I have no hope for it or him anymore. Just biding my time for things to fall into place.

Anyways back to dd.

She was angry. She's asked me over and over who AP is so she can tell her to F off. She's told me her dad isn't worth staying with anymore and that I should have divorced him a long time ago. She also said she won't live with him ever and AP will never be her step mom.

DD hasn't been feeling well. Dizzy spells, her bowels no longer working, not eating. I took her to the doctor. I have a phone appointment tomorrow to find out the results if her bloodwork and ECG.

I had a meeting with her high-school about her IEP last week. This week the same person calls me to say one of her teachers is concerned. Dd has a mild intellectual disability and there's a huge project coming up so they wanted my permission to have dd spend that period in a student success class where there's help. DD has gone there before for help so it's not new. I told her dd wasn't acting right, not eating, had seen the doc and we were waiting on results. She asked if it was OK to have a chat with dd and I said of course! She calls me back afterwards saying dd said she was stressed by that class and just didn't want to eat. So she suggested small snacks to help keep up her energy.

I also know dd has been bullied a bit but that some if thise bugging her apologized and things were better.

I dont know if she's really just stressed over what she saw on her dad's phone and it's screwing everything up. All this crap started around the same time. She does know that the school counselor is there if she needs to talk about anything but she doesn't want to talk to anyone.

Other than be there for her what else can I do?

Do you prefer long or short nails?

I was a nail biter growing up and my mom tried everything to get me to stop. Even promised $5 for every nail that grew past the end of my fingertips. Alas I never saw any money.

Working in Healthcare I preferred short nails since they didn't rip gloves or scratch by mistake.

Now though I have allowed my nails to grow. They have always been thin, ridged, easily broken. I've increased my dairy and find my nails thicker, though still ridged.

Today I wanted to get all of the pigs set up in the old chicken coup which is closer to the house, for the winter. In the process I caught my nail on my middle finger on a board. It bent back but didn't break. What it did do is rip off the nail bed so it began to bleed like crazy. Can we say PAIN! I ended up having to cut the nail short and then tape it so I didn't catch it again.

Funny story, when dd and I went out she got a small can of Pringle to snack on. She tried to open the inner seal but the tab part ripped off. At the time my thumb nail was super long and thick, like screw driver worthy. So I offered to open it. I tried to puncture the top with that nail only to have it snap. Dd just laughed.
Dd, ds and little M all bite their nails. Dd is the worst though, she has hardly any nails at all. Big d grows his nails out so long so quickly I have to trim them every few days!

I'm starting to wonder if short nails are just better suited for me and my farm life. I do like the long nails, sometimes even wear nail polish. Also like the ability to gouge out eyeballs if I ever need to lmao.

Big time parenting mess up

Last week my 3 elementary kids went to a cross country meet. I was so happy they made the team and were getting to compete.

DS came home with a limp. He said he tripped, rolled his ankle and fell, then got up and tried to continue only to roll his other ankle. He walked with another kid to the end and ran the last bit to the finish line. He said his foot was sore but didn't cry or appear in serious pain and seemed fine the rest of last week. He would say he was sore after getting home from school but was fine at home.

This week much of the same. Fine in the morning before school but sore when he got home. Then yesterday a kid shoved him into a shelving unit. He hit his foot and got a nasty bruise on the right side of his ribs. Also the middle toe on his sore foot was purple. He was really limping. I told him I'd take him to urgent care today. Well This morning he could barely walk so I took him to the ER.

Doc sent him for x rays and it turns out this kid has a broken heel. They didn't cast it (is that nornal for a heel break???). Just gave him crutches to use for 2 weeks to stay off his foot completely. He is to see our family doctor within the two weeks to be assessed and we were told 6 weeks until it's fully healed. He said only give him Advil for pain.

How the heck has he been walking on a broken foot for a full week??????? Doc showed us the x rays and the bone is totally broken.

Now I feel absolutely horrible that I didn't drag him to the hospital when he came home from the cross country meet.

I thought at most he maybe it was a bad sprain but not a break. No bruising, no swelling (his toe is purple and now really swollen and funny enough the x ray we saw didn't show that middle tow but I wouldn't be surprised if it is broken too).

I let the school know so that they can arrange for him to use the elevator to get to class. DS is bummed out because he won't be able to manage Halloween on crutches.

I just can't win. Take the kids to the hospital and it turns out to be not that bad and get an eye roll from the doctor. Don't take the kids right away and it turns out to be something and still get an eye roll.

This sucks!

The difference a switch makes!

I've posted plenty about being on a well and the nastiness of our water, the constant pipe breaks/leaks, having to replace the water heater (a few times), pressure tank, control box pump etc.

The pressure has never been good and I chalked that up to having crud blocking thr pipes. Late last winter our water line froze. We didn't know it had frozen from thr well to the house and feared the pump or control box had gone again.

The well company we deal with came and checked and just happened to see that our pressure switch was wrong. We had a 20/40 and the pump requires 30/50 or higher. So they brought me a new one. I told them it was all good I'd install it once the line thawed (had to stick heaters in the well and in the basement facing the pipe) but I never got around to it.

Well wh and I did it and OMG. I had forgotten what a "good" shower felt like. I could spend all day in there lol

Something so simple made such a huge difference. Excuse me while I go shower lol

Need help with bowel problem

Warning: I need advice on pooping, TMI ahead...

I'm really frustrated and need all the advice I can get.

My dd, now 14, has always had problems with her bowels. As an infant she struggled to poop and when she did it was hard rocks. I brought this up to all of her doctors who just put her on laxatives. When we were eventually sent to a specialist after a few years of me constantly bitching and we were told her lower bowel was the shape of a grape fruit and all the stool was just settling in there. Again told to just use laxatives.

For years we struggled. She had support staff when she started school mainly because the laxatives made her constantly leak so she had to wear pull-ups all the time.

Then at one appointment with her endocrinologist, the suggestion was made to wean her off laxatives and get her on a bowel routine. Over the 2 months of summer vacation we did this and it was amazing. Dd would sit and try even though she didn't feel she had to go. I increased Fibre and she has always been good at drinking tonnes of water.

For years this has worked but now it's not working.

DD actually asked me to buy her the chocolate exlax. That works but she will leak again before she finally goes.

She says she doesn't get any feeling to poop. She knows she has to go when she has tummy pain and her butt hurts. By then her bowel movement is the size of at least four Campbell soup cans stacked one on the other. It's thick enough to plug the toilet so we end up having to bag it up then open the septic tank and dump it in.

This is insane! I'm still so mad I didn't push even harder when she was younger to have doctors investigate WHY she couldn't poop. Why she doesn't have any feeling to poop until it's causing her pain.

It's going to take a while to get her in to see a gastroenterologist again. First need referral from family doc and family doc could take a few weeks.

In the mean time any advice or suggestions to get her going daily? Or even every other day?

She is struggling emotionally with this and just her overall health. She keeps saying she's just all f**Ed up. She's still to small, her eye sight has problems. Thankfully our optometrist is on top of that and she's going for further testing in 2 weeks.

Is there something she can take daily that won't make her leak but will help her go before it gets so huge?

What is your comfort food?

I pondered this while enjoying my cream of potatoe soup with shredded cheddar cheese, and other added veggies.

I love cream of Broccoli as well.

But the more I thought about it the one thing I tend to put in ALL of my meals is onions.

Chopped up in a salad, soup, mashed potatoes, pasta dish, stir fry, meatloaf, on sandwiches, even my own sad but tasty blooming onion.

Please NOTE I say MY meals. I live with a bunch of picky eaters who prefer breaded EVERYTHING and I'm sick of that. Only Little M has what I call a normal palate of food preferences.

While I enjoy onions I dispose onion soup.

I coukd say soup is my comfort food but if it doesn't have onions in it, it's just not good. I guess that means for me it's onions.

What's your comfort food?

Is it selfish to have some expectations

In a friendship?

I'm at an age where I am sick of giving and not receiving anything back.

I want friendships where the other person will say hi once in a while, reply to a message or email, be honest.

Is that to much to ask?

I mentioned this to "a friend" who got cranky with me about it.

Seems I'm good enough to vent to and be expected to be there when they want but I'm selfish if I want the same....

What say you SI?

Need perspective on this

Ive been talking with an old acquaintance of mine, lets call him R. He's constantly depressed, talks about wanting to die. I've always said I'm available if he needs to talk but after last night I've reached my limit.

He has a friend who is dying. Last I heard the friend, J, was on palliative care, death wasn't imminent.

Yesterday R sent me a screen shot of a Facebook post J made saying he got bad medical news but really great personal news, details to follow.

R was pissed off J didn't tell him directly what the news was. I guess he wanted me to agree that J was being mean by not sharing that information with him. After a long day, being tired and sore myself I didn't clue into that. R made a comment about what HE thought the bad news was making it sound as if J is under hospice care. I just said that if he's still under palliative care I didn't think that was what's wrong, would just have to wait and see what J says.

R snapped at me. Told me to fuck off and that I'm nothing but a piece of shit.

I'm trying not to take it personally since he's all depressed but damn! I've said he needs to see his doctor, try antidepressants, even go to the ER with how he's been talking and he's always had one excuse or another.

He lives to far away for me to do anything to stop him if he decides to attempt suicide but I do know mutual friends who are close. Do I bother informing them of his current state?

Part of me is just royally pissed off and thinks he's playing the poor me card but I'd hate to think he is successful and I did nothing.

Is this normal from doctors?

Well first I wasn't able to get on here this morning. An error page kept showing. Wonder if it was just me.

Anyways last week wh got hurt at work. Ended up taking him to the ER. While there he mentioned that within the last couple of weeks he had passed out. They immediately do an ECG. He's then sent for an x ray of his shoulder.

Er doc says he has AC separation and rotator cuff injury.

Ecg didnt show anything so he makes the suggestion to follow up with our family doctor for the shoulder AND to see about having a monitor put on for his heart.

Wh is put on modified duties for 2 weeks, forms for work related injury all done AT the hospital.

The moment we got home from the hospital I called family doc and made it very clear that the appointment was to discuss a HEART MONITOR and see how his shoulder is healing.

Last night was the appointment with family doc. All that was discussed was his shoulder AND the doc ended up filling out the same damn work injury forms with just one change, ordering an ultrasound and the possibility of needing physical therapy depending on what the ultrasound shows.

When we bring up the heart monitor the doc says that he does ONE issue per appointment and to make a separate appointment for the heart thing. OMFG!

The office was empty, I specifically told reception what NEEDED TO BE COVERED and the time needed for that, it takes us an hour and a half to get there and wh works so he's limited to just the evening appointments.

Wh had to finish filling out the forms with his info then the receptionist needed to make copies. While he's doing that I ask her for another evening appointment for wh. She gives me an afternoon appointment. So I say again, LATE evening appointment. After the third time explaining I asked for a specific TIME hoping she got it.

Anyone else wanna pull out their hair and scream.....

Is this a new normal? Making an appointment for each thing you want to discuss with your doctor? And frankly the forms didn't need to be done AGAIN, nor the total shoulder range of motion thing when it hadn't even been two weeks yet.

The main concern was to get the heart checked to rule that out for why he's passed out. Grrrrr.

Prayers and mojo request

My brother has had the same friend since kindergarten. This guy had been an adopted brother of mine. Part of our family. He's an amazing man!

A few years ago he required a kidney transplant.

A few days ago he ended up in the hospital. I just heard today that tests reveal his body is suddently rejecting his new kidney.

So I'm requesting the amazing healing energy of SI.

Thank you smile

A question about burns

It's DD's 14th birthday.

Baked a cake. Actually a double cake. In a very large pan meant for lasagna lol

Anyways went to get cake out of the oven and my arm touched the edge of the pan. Of course stupid me didn't just put it down and regrab it. Noooooooooo. I instead stood there with my hands in the oven, arm against the pan THINKING what should I do. I didnt react, I just froze.

5 seconds or so later I snapped out of it and put the cake on top of the stove then ran my arm under cool water.

The burn is about 2 inches long, an eighth of an inch wide and white. That part doesn't really hurt. All around it does. It's red around the burn. It hasn't blistered. Can I just leave it open to the air or should I cover it?


Yes I'm a wreck lol

Being a creature of habit

Is anyone else like this?

For example I stick to the same route to and from town to do shopping every week. Always the same route. That way if I have trouble or disappear my family knows where to look. If wh drives us anywhere he alwsys takes a different route or deviates just to piss me off.

I also shop at the same grocery store and for the past 2 months they have been renovating. They bought thr vacant store space beside them and expanded.

This has sent me into a fucking frenzy.

I followed the same route through the store, made easier by the one way arrows during covid (loved them!). I buy the same crap every week so it was easy to get what I needed and get out because I knew where everything was.

Not. Anymore...

Except for produce, everything has changed. And it's a drastic change. Baking stuff is in the isle with ketchup. Frozen foods are in freezers all around thr outside instead of just the back. Toilet paper etc is where the pop (soda) used to be. And cupcakes cups that used to be in baking stuff is now on an end cap by Deli. WTF!

OMG I'm going to lose my friggin mind!

Please tell me I'm not the only person who wants to run through the store screaming...

And of course since today is a holiday everyone was losing their minds yesterday. Encountered the cream of thr crop for driving stupidity. Making a left turn from right hand lane, people running stop signs, parking diagonally across parking spaces. mad

And of course 2 of 3 banking machines just had to be out of order the day I need to get out the mortgage money. Gotta say I didnt realize I swore out loud until all the people in line looked at me. Then they all agreed and while waiting we all had a great chat. It was fun.

Usually my one day a week out of thr house is relaxing but yesterday was NOT.

Missing child ends in tragedy

Sunday a young boy with autism was reported missing from his home.

Once word got out the entire community went out to search. Three separate police units from different regions, helicopters, drones, dogs, boats, ATV's, people from far came to search. Security surveillance caught him heading north on one street.

We all had hope he would be found safe.

Then just over 24 hours from when he was reported missing, police divers retrieved his body from the river.

Hundreds of posts and so many asking why no Amber alert was issued. Amber alerts are for abductions, not lost/missing children.

Now we have a petition to created a new alert system for vulnerable children/individuals. I pray it gets implemented.

I didn't read about it until late Sunday when I checked out community Facebook page. If everyone had had an alert come over their phones, radios maybe, just maybe he would have been found sooner.

I hugged my kids tighter last night. The entire community is grieving today.

Proof that theres something in our water!

I am 100% convinced that whatever is in the water here makes things bigger! I've seen big crickets but the wild ones are massive. Like June bug size.

Worms. Wow.

I've set up our home cameras that send my phone a notification and photo of whatever motion set it off. Captured the following. I've cropped the pic to just the creature.

At first I was panicking thinking OMG we have scorpions here. Nope this is a little jumping spider, typically with black and white stripes. They are cute. This one, not so much. Either he's taken on a gym membership and is working out those front legs or he's fallen into a vat of nuclear waste or there's something in our water because:

This isnt normal!

Sexual assault at my kids school!

My kids came off the bus one day talking to eachother about police being at the school. Turns out one of the grade 8 boys assaulted a girl. Of course it's just rumor from all the kids. Nothing had been said by the school and won't because of thr Young Offenders Act.

Like what the Hell is going on....

Worse is what I discovered on DDs phone...

She and I went out alone last Sunday. She was sitting in the very back of thr van when, she could habe sat up front with me. Turns out she was video chatting with her bf. rolleyes

She made some comments about her dad and that whole shitty situation that made me worried. So I checked her messenger account.

The messages this bf is sending her....omg. wanting to plant his seed in her, fill her hole.

I wasn't dating at 13 so is this talk normal?

Dd and I have had the sex talk and her response to him always try to change the subject or shut him down. But still. I worry.

Now an assault AT THE SCHOOL!!!

I'm just a mess now. More so than before. My only comfort is that dd knows to go for thr balls. She floored ds once and then gave him a black eye. Anyone attacks her and they will be sorry.

Recurring theme is dreams/nightmares

Has anyone ever had a recurring theme in dreams?

I haven't had it happen in a while. Yesterday I laid down for a nap and I had the weirdest dream. This isnt anything new but the constant in every dream is that I try to call for help and my phone doesn't work. I cannot call 911.

Previously it's been dreams of people trespassing, stealing or setting up camp on my property.

Yesterday's dream was about 2 orcas being stranded on one side of my flooded driveway. Yeah so weird. I am NO where near the ocean.

At first I see one orca jump from the flooded ditches to our side. I briefly wake up then doze off. Then I'm dreaming there's a huge truck and crane in my driveway trying to get the now 2 orcas back to the ditch where they can then swim back to open water.

Ok so yeah I'm close to a waterway connected by locks but...again, not someplace you'd find killer whales! The man in the truck asks me to call for more help and no matter how hard I try I cannot connect. DD is there with her her phone and makes the call saying its ok mom I got this.


Why can't I ever get help?

I know I feel helpless now. That I'm frustrated I get no help around here. That I feel trapped and alone. But these dreams have been happening for years.

Maybe I can change the dream so I'm using a CB radio instead. Easier to put out a 10-200 (police needed) than trying to use my phone.

When you move away and they all move too

My parents moved from the city to a small town. Like small. Teeny tiny small. More cows around than people! First year there I went to the catholic school in a slightly larger town about 10 minutes away.

After a year of being beaten and bullied my parents enrolled me into the small public school in the town we lived in. From grade 3-8 and then onto our tiny high-school. There was 107 students in my entire high-school.

Ok to say I enjoyed school would be a lie. Teased, called names, at least not beaten but that took me beating the crap out of one of the bullies to get everyone else to back off.

When high-school was done I never looked back. Moving up here was great. Far from everyone right...

So why is it I keep running into people I went to school with?????

And why do they pretend like our school days were so great and are so friendly now...

These same people would moo when I walked by, called me horrible names, were cruel. When I refused to have sex with one guy in the library next door to where all the teachers were I was treated even worse!

Everyone thought I was the good girl when I was actually dating a guy from another high-school, yes having sex, drinking and smoking. I was by no means the good girl! They didn't see that side of me until I brought my bf to a dance and we started dirty dancing lol. Even the teachers were shocked. laugh

So when I happen to run into them I just want to tell them to go f off. But I don't. Cause I'm an adult and mature right....grrrr

Can anyone else relate to this?

In house separation sucks!

Wh has been sleeping on the sofa since March 8th. He left for a few days but knows I cannot keep him from the house.

This is maddening. He keeps insisting we need to spend time together to reconnect. Barges into the bedroom any time he wants.

I've tried to get it through his head this isnt how separation works and when I've brought up things like separating the phone bills (which he has to call to do cause he is account owner) he will say things like "this is my house", "where do you think I am going", "you can leave" etc.

Guess it was dumb to think he would make this easy.

DD is now out for the count. Poor kid has the worst headache, a fever and a sore throat.

DS has a cough and the sniffles.

So far the twins are ok.

I still feel blah with bouts of sudden severe nausea.

Looks like this will be another week away from school.

I think there should still be masks whikr inside. None if us got sick until thr mask mandates were lifted.

Update on my dad

He's doing good.

They took out the shunt for the dialysis. Kidney function is good. He developed what they think is an infection at the site so he's on antibiotics.

He goes to the hospital once a week for chemo.

The only issue really is bowels. They don't work so he is on laxatives that work way to well. My mom has tried to get him on a proper med schedule and bowel routine but he's being stubborn.

My brother is doing as much as he can, as much as they will allow him to. Lots of driving. He's stressed but handling everything like a champ.

I called my mom to chat. She seems in good spirits.

Watching your parents slowly deteriorate is difficult.

Of course here I am panicking thinking I am in trouble. Please let that not be the case.

Dorothy, I will reboot my phone and see if that helps. I did a scan just now to see if I have a virus and it was clean. Also did device care. If I don't create a new thread after I reboot that means it didn't work and I can still only create New threads not reply to existing ones.

Why are male goats called Bucks when they do more Ramming than bucking?

More kids!!!

Just welcomed triplets to the farm family.

Dd woke me up saying she could hear a baby goat.

Pearl had her kid before Christmas and they are in the nursery barn up close to the house so I thought maybe that's who she heard.

Went out to check to find one little tiny all-white kid outside by the goat trailer door. Dd crawls up the ramp to find two more kids inside. Mom just standing there staring.... rolleyes

One of the other goats was trying to push all of the babies out. So we locked mom and babies in the back half of the trailer.

It's a 30-foot camper trailer, renovated with thick plywood and filled with straw. Was nice and warm in there.

Mom had two does and a buck. The all-white doe is the runt. I saw each kid nurse but if the runt doesn't grow well we will bottle feed.

That was a rude awakening at 12am but of all the reasons to have to wake up, teeny tiny pygmy goats kids is fine with me.

Pretty sure dd would have spent the night out there had i not told her to get inside to bed lol.

Photos to come. grin

Water well questions anyone else on one?

Our line from thr well to thr house froze last week.

Friday I figured out the frost free hydrant for the garden hose wasn't working because the inside part broke. I left the broken handle off since the inside part was stuck then drove to town to pick up a new one. By the time I got home wh was home...and fuming.

The stuck part had come out and for maybe 2 hours water was shooting across the backyard. He had to shut off the water.

We replace the hydrant and all seems fine. Wake up Saturday morning with no water.

Not knowing if it was frozen, the control box, control switch or the pump itself, i called the company that installed the pump. They came by Sunday with a new switch and control box but still no water. They went into the well snd figured out the line was frozen. An hour with the hairdryer going on the line from inside of the house and two reptile heaters IN the well and we had water.

But it is bypassing the pressure tank. The tank remains empty and when we turn on a tap the pump goes on.

We have been using a 20/40 switch when we are supposed to have a 30/50. Well guy brought is a 40/60.

Obviously our pressure has sucked. But if we install that switch will we get more pressure without the tank being full?

Wh wants to replace all of thr T pipe and connections where the well line enters the house this weekend. Its supposed to drop to -23. Is it safe to have the water shut off that long and not freeze the line again?

Anyone else here own sugar gliders???

I do, of course lol

Since the house is chilly where their huge enclosure is located i moved our 1.3 Group to a smaller cage into our bedroom.

We discovered they enjoy the solid wheels and have a few of them. Two in this cage right now. Solid wheels due to their long tails being able to get caught in the hamster type wheels.

Anyways my three girls were fussing up a storm. Really angry at eachother. First it was just the normal female and the leucistic female. Then the pied female got into it.

Turns out they were fighting over who could use the larger of the two wheels. The pied girl and leucistic girl were both in it facing in opposite directions trying to run.

This of course won't work and was funny as can be seeing them both trying to get the wheel going.

I guess all the noise upset the male since he came storming out of the nest box and kicked them all out of the wheel. He then got going so fast he got whipped out of it.

They are a riot sometimes. grin

Quick question about oven elements

Can you put a 3000W bake element, listed as a "universal replacement" in a stove that had a 2500w bake element?

(Talking about the bottom element)

So yeah, my stove blew as if Thor himself was having a lightening fit inside.

I was cooking pork chops. All of a sudden there was a ZAP. Then the element broke into flames, sizzled, snapped apart and went out. I shut off oven then made a dash to SAVE THE PORK CHOPS 🤣

It was the Gods way of telling me No DragnHeart you will NOT be baking a cake tonight... damn!

I have checked every store that sells elements within a hour of where i live. Everyone has the 3000w. No one has the 2500w.

Of course i got the 2500w spec off the web from searching for my stove.

Are the specs on the back if the stove? I haven't bothered to pull it out yet. Lol.

Wanna see two kids habe a shit fit. Dd and Big D both were like OMG mom how are we going to cook our breaded chicken fingers... rolleyes

Thank goodness for toaster ovens lol

Sudden case of hives causes?

I was laying in bed watching a video on puff pastry and started to get itchy. Then it got worse and was spreading. Got up looked in mirror and im totally covered in hives around my neck and face.

Took a Benadryl. Stopped scratching. Isnt as bad. But WTH!?!

I dont know what ive done to trigger this.

Haven't eaten since dinner.
Added shavings to pig box hours ago.
Using the same detergent on clothes/bedding.
Im not allergic to anything that i know of.

Any ideas what else can cause hives?

I just do not understand why so much resistance

Here in Ontario we will be going back to a modified stage 2 of reopening. That means back to certain public health measures for 21 days.

50% capacity for malls and retail.

Closing of gyms, theatres, zoos, amusement parks, no indoor dining etc.

Remote learning until at least Jan 17th.

Cap on indoor gatherings of 5 people.

Capacity limits on funeral and other such services.

The list is long as usual.

The outrage at this just shocks me.

With covid numbers in the tens of thousands even if just 1% of those need hospital or ICU care, the reality is our hospitals will be overwhelmed.

What did everyone expect would happen with the numbers of people who went against public health recommendations over the holidays...!?!

I am happy there is a delay in kids returning to school! Many, like my 3 younger ones, arent vaxxed yet. Stick 30+ kids in a small classroom and pray that covid wont run rampant is irresponsible.

(I got my three scheduled for their shot tomorrow).

Its the third day of the year and already it feels like theres no end to how cruel people will be. Social media is swamped with conspiracy theories and people just raging. Anyone saying they approve of the measures gets a written beat down and called names.

Its just so depressing!

I don't understand how so many people can be blind to the obvious. Ignorance or just plain arrogance?

I feel helpless and hopeless and so alone.

Anyone else feel like this?

They did it again and i want to scream!

Got a notification from an App that ds teacher uses (and may i add shes the ONLY teacher who uses this app so i have to add yet another one to my phone Grrr).

She sent out a reminder that the kids are to wear festive colours today since they are doing the first recording of their Christmas concert.

She also said absolutely no black because its against our "countries culture".

This is in contrast to a message i got yesterday from Big D's teacher asking that all her class wear black today...

A bit of a back and forth with DS teacher i find out that each class has a different country to represent.

Great....could have told us before the day of...

And the explanation that the snow days we had threw a wrench into their plans is BS! They would have know before today what country they were representing since they are recording the performance TODAY...


My DS is incapable of realizing he will need specific clothes etc for events like this. I need better communication from his teacher. And sorry to say i said so lol. I dont think im in her good books today. blush

What gives you satisfaction?

What makes you feel good?

I built a gravity fed pig feeder. I cannot tell you how wonderful i feel that i accomplished that.

Gathered all the wood.

Measured wood.

Cut wood.

Screwed it all together.

And viola! Happy Pigs!

Also happy me. I can fit three bags of feed in it, so I'm not hauling out buckets of food twice a day. I save that for water rolleyes

Pigs, unlike goats, know when to stop eating. They get full. Goats, well they are "Pigs" and will eat until they quite literally explode.... look

Bonus: i can fill it from the outside of their pen.

That was Tuesdays project. Monday, though i managed to get stuff done, wasnt as satisfying. Came out to do feedings and was greeted by all of my goats, ie NOT in their pasture.

Their round hay bale came apart ON top of the electric fence knocking it down. I hadn't yet put up the gate for the wood fence i built. So that was Mondays job. However i was using the commercial grade chain link fence wh got. Most of them came already on the metal bars so we had huge panels. This was one not on the frame. Just the chainlink. So i built a wooden frame. 6 feet tall, ten feet long. Using scrap wood we had here meaning 2"×6"×10' boards. Heavy...

PSA: when using old wood make sure any old nails are hammered in good or pulled out. At one point while trying to lift it into place the whole thing came down On Me. Nail cut across my thigh and the wood bruised it all. Didn't rip my pants. Still scratching my head about that. Came very close to needing stitches and yes my tetnus is up to date.

Needless to say i had some choice words and I'm pretty sure the neighbour heard me lol

I did get the gate up, goats back in and all seemed ok. Until Tuesday morning. Goats not in pen... i didnt have U nails to attach the chainlink all along bottom board and they were pushing it out just enough to get out. Put a board on top and screwed it in place for now. That worked!

Wednesday and Thursday i spent extending the roof over the doors of the pig house and closing it in more to avoid any drafts. Put in 4 more bales of straw and its fun to watch them tunnel through it.

I could sit in their pen watching them all day.

Animals are funny

I transferred my water monitor into a larger enclosure. 8 feet long. He has large branches to climb on, a huge water bin, heated floor on one side and basking areas.

Ya know what he likes to climb on?

The walls. Plywood walls he can climb across with ease. He also likes to climb the cage wire at the front.

But whats funny is that if he sees me looking at him he freezes. Will stay so still as if thinking i cannot see him. Ever so slowly he will start to climb down then will make a dash for his cave. Over and over he does this.

Hes hanging from the wire now...

In contrast my Savannah monitor comes right out to greet me when i walk in the room.

Yesterday i found my white goose walking around the out of thr pasture. I told her that wasnt acceptable and started to walk towards her. She ran to the fence, flapped up and over it and then hit ice when she hit the ground. Ever seen a goose skate? I nearly peed my pants i laughed so hard. She did that wobble try to catch herself and totally failed.

From in the pasture the duck and other goose just went crazy. I assume they found it funny too laugh

I need to vent warning curse words

School spirit days. Theres one every other frigging week and i hate them! Wear pink, wear a jersey, wear a school shirt, wear blue, wear something camo.

Its a non stop headache to make sure all the kids have them and its ALWAYS a fight with them not to argue over who wears what or that they dont want to wear something at all.

I dont need this added fucking stress over god damn shirts!

My children's IEP's have "technology" listed to help them.

You know what that technology is?!?

A computer program that READS FOR THEM.

So lets NOT teach the kids with difficulty reading to actually read, we will just give them a program that does it for them. What the ever fuck.

Im busting my ass fighting with the kids doing reading and sight words at home and at school they aren't even reading. mad

We got a good dumping of snow last night. Wh bitches this morning that he feels just so unprepared, oh there's so much to do. I lost it. Said i have been telling him this exact shit for months yet he comes home from work, sits on his ass, does fuck all and expects ME to do it. Fuck!

I have a thousand things to do and i can't even get help with dishes without a fight. Today i am changing the wifi password and hiding ALL of the chargers!!!

Man i need a drink!

Giving dd a mental health day

Dd and i headed down to the city yesterday for her yearly endocrine appointment. The 6 month one was done via a zoom meeting but this time they needed to do bloodwork so it was in person.

We are nearing the end of her growth hormone treatment. Her growth has slowed down. Shes made it to 4 feet 9 inches tall. Shes now a whole 80 lbs.

According to Transport Canada shes officially allowed to ride in the front seat if a vehicle. Shes so happy about that.

She is NOT happy that she may not grow any more. Maybe another 2 cm. Thats what the doctor thinks. She is just barely on the growth chart. And with her growth tapering off there's a chance she won't stay on it.

We have to wait for her bloodwork to come back to see if we can increase her GHT. If we can we will give it another 6 months.

Dd was given the option to stop now. She didnt want to. She wants every last bit to get taller.

She was talkative on the way down there. Didn't say much coming home.
Started sniffling. I knew she was upset but she wouldn't talk about it.

She didn't sleep well so today i kept her home. The school seemed ok with it.

I dont know what to do for my kid. She was always looking ahead to the therapy making her taller and it has done an amazing job from when she started. Its just not the end result SHE was hoping for, even with being told it has limits. Genetics plays a huge roll and thats just something you cant fight.

Shes also angry we didn't start sooner.

Part of me feels i failed her but i know we did what we felt was best at the time under doctors advice.

Im worried she will become depressed. Trying so hard to make sure she is ok while dealing with the other kids issues. I feel wiped out. And that drive yesterday was HELL!!! Hell!!!

Any advice on how to help dd accept herself as she is?

Womans heart attacks

I woke up around 2am with crushing chest and arm pain. Figured since i had over done it on the weekend and slept on my arm it was no big deal. Pain went away in about ten minutes, arm was sore all day.

Then with my morning coffee i got something In my eye. Flushed it out. Still not better. No visible foreign matter. As the day went on it got much worse. Gross gunk started to come out. Decided once the other kids were home from school and dinner was made i was heading into town to see a doctor.

Went to urgent care. Thought I'd have them check my shoulder/arm too. Discovered that if you have something in your eye and you mention chest/arm pain they will send you to the ER. Urgent care doc didnt even look at my eye.

Had my blood pressure taken three different times and each time it was different. Normal then down then up.

Got a full cardiac work up. Bloodwork.

I always thought men got the chest and arm pain while woman get the upset stomach, neck and jaw pain. Was told thats true but woman can have a range of symptoms so they had to check to be sure.

Happy to report my heart is in good working order. My eye on the other had has a significant decrease in vision and a scratch. Got drops and getting a visit to an ophthalmologist, yay me...

The heart thing is really scary. Kept thinking I'm to young for a heart attack. Heart attacks arent huge in my family but strokes are. Guess its time to shape up and get healthy.

Now for a few hours of sleep before its time to get up. Sheesh.

Convincing myself im not to old for this!

I am sooooo sore today!

Yesterday was beautiful out. Decided to continue with my wood fence on the goat pen.

Already built two 8ft sections. Just had to move them into place. Realized my fence was NOT straight and had to move five done sections over. Then got smart and strung a line up so i wouldn't mess that up again.

This fence isnt into the ground. Its a bitch to dig post holes or pound T posts in so each 8ft section is screwed to a crosser so they look like H. That way if the goats head butt it the crossers take the pressure and the fence stays up. Not the best explanation but it works. Anyways...

Wh helped with one section then got on my nerves so i did the rest myself with him coming to help here and there. I got smart and built the next sections in place so all i had to do was stand them up and screw.

Each 8ft section is two 4ft. Three 4×4 posts with 8 horizontal 2×4 joining each, so 16 total. Its a heavy section. My arms feel like jello. I had to wear my rubber boots because its all wet there but these boots are also steel toe. My legs are so sore too.

We put up field fencing last year to keep the horses further back. I was going to leave a space between the field fence and back of the goat pen for the tractor but that means pounding in T posts for the goat/sheep fence. Said screw it and will continue the wood fence right to the field fence then line the inside of the field fence with the goat fence so they cant get through. Means the goats have more room.

This isnt a bad thing since i want to be able to extend the pig pen which is beside the goats. Just means 4 more eight foot sections to build. shocked

That said, my body really hates me today. I mean OMG ouchy.

Wh old neighbour was a WW2 vet. In his 90's using an old sickle to cut the grass in his ditches. The man was amazing!!! Wh was gifted that sickle. Im in my 40's and building part of a fence has left me a blob the next day. Geez!

I keep having to tell myself "I am living my dream" lol.

Part of me feels defeated. Now i had help, the kids helped a bit, wh helped a bit. I just hate that my body isnt up to par like it used to be.

Today im staying inside but taking care of inside stuff so i dont feel like im slacking.

Hopefully tomorrow ill complete that fence.

Anyone elses "dream" seem so hard at times?

Developing allergies?

I thought I'd be creative and paint my nails. Got glitter nail polish in a five colour package. Loved the purple, of course lol.

Noticed that the stuff chipped really easily and wanted to "touch it up". Ya that doesn't work well with the glitter stuff. So went on the hunt to find my nail polish remover so i could just redo it. Found it and did the hack where you put the remover in a small container with a sponge thats cut so you can soak each nail. It came off really easy. But...

I touched my chin before i had fully wiped off the remover and man oh man did i break out in hives. All the way down my neck.

A few days after that my deoderant caused severe itching.

Now dish soap is too.


I have a shower and i come out itching like mad!

All the same soaps, deoderant etc. Nothing has changed.

Is it possivle to just develop allergies like this all of a sudden?

Choosing wall colours

Need advice/opinions on how to chose wall colours when you have an open concept style house.

Our front entrance, kitchen, living room, and dining room are one big circle.

There is no real break between the kitchen and living room. There is a wall from kitchen to living room meaning one wall in both rooms.

If i paint the kitchen one colour and the living room another, which colour do i paint that one wall?

I guess it would be easier if i drew out blueprint of the house to help.

Wh and i have decided on the flooring for each room. I know the colour of the kitchen. The colour of the living room dining room and hall is all still up in the air.

Sciatica? back hip buttocks and leg pain

A couple of weeks ago i was reaching to pick up some 2x4's and twisted hurting my back. Pain in lower back, hip, buttocks leg. Horrible pain. Lasted a couple of days.

This past weekend i moved the wrong way and pain is back with a vengeance. I cannot sleep. Laying down hurts. Sitting hurts. Standing is tolerable.

All on left side.

Warmth feels good. Ice makes it hurt more.

I am trying to stay moving but man i cannot take the pain.

Is there any specific stretches i can do to help ease this before i see a doctor?

Any plumbers here?

Oh man as if my life isnt f'ed up enough...

Put a small load of laundry on just before going to bed. Laying there, unable to sleep,i hear a gurgling sound.

The laundry room is off main washroom which is beside master bedroom.

Walk into bathroom to find the toilet overflowing and the tub overflow with water pouring out of it, filling the tub.

A. Turn off washing machine.
B. Plunge toilet. Success, it stops overflowing.
C. grab every available towel to soak up water on floor.
D. Attempt to plunge tub drain. Water has stopped coming out of the overflow but tub isnt draining AND i broke the plunger... mad

Water is now slowly draining from tub.

I turned on tap in bathroom sink. Water does not back up into sink!
Same in kitchen.

So being that its most likely a clog, its in the line somewhere between washer, tub and toilet.

I have taped the toilet shut, set up the potty and another garbage can for toilet paper, praying the kids get the hint IF they get up in the night to go.

Its now 12:02...fml.

So is my best bet to get a bottle or two of draino in the morning OR a snake thing?

Note, all water is gone from tub now. Im to scared to try flushing the toilet.

Kid crying wolf i am so angry

DD has always been dramatic and demanded people do things for her or do what SHE wants.

Even in fucking kindergarten this kid knew how to manipulate people to make them do things for her. Her then teacher asked me if dd was capable of say putting on her boots, coat etc. When i said hell ya she can teacher explained that dd was making people believe she couldn't do things so everyone was helping her. She was so tiny and "cute" and everyone was in line wanting to help...

Teacher put an end to that...

DD uses her small stature as an excuse why she cant do this or that. It's all bullshit and she knows that I know its bullshit.

I do not put up with her crap.

Every day she bitches that she cannot help DS with dishes because she has homework BUT she can sneak out and play with the baby pig one of our sows just had. I called bullshit and told her so and she helped ds all the while mouthing off.

Once done she goes to her room to do her homework.

Then she comes out demanding i help her with her art. Not asking for help, demanding it. I explain how to do what she needs to do and she flips out becauze I wont do it FOR HER...

She blows up in my face that i dont care, want her to fail and no wonder she wants to KILL HERSELF as she storms off to her room.

I needed a minute to calm down then went to tell her that since she feels suicidal i would be taking her to the hospital as soon as her dad got home.

Wanna see a kid change her tune really fast. She not only finished her art but has been saying she doesnt want to kill herself so no need to go to the hospital and its no big deal etc.

I told her its a VERY big deal and not something to mess around with.

Shes been all nice since. Grrr

Teenage girls suck!!! Glad i was never one lol.

Damn good thing shes having special education psychological testing done. Ill be adding this incident into the mountain of paperwork i have to fill out for her..

I know life with kids is only going to get worse lol. No delusions there but tell me i am capable of dealing with all this shit.

Around and around i go

This sinus thing is an ongoing problem now.

It flared up again, left side, ear, teeth, above and below my eye all so painful.

On antibiotics AGAIN!

Tylenol Sinus offered No relief from the pain. Tylenol with codeine did only if i took 3 at a time and of course that lead to no BMs for a week.

Advil plus Tylenol plus naproxen eased it enough i could eat.

Neti pot used daily. Helped a bit but i still couldn't get through the night.

Used heat and cold packs, trying anything to alleviate the pain. Drinking alot of water.

Up until this morning the pain was constant. Today i wake up and only if i press above and below my eye does it hurt. No pain in my teeth or ear. But... BUT the left side of my face is now swollen like a balloon.

As bad as i look i am Ok with it. Not being in pain making me crazy is so wonderful. Maybe the antibiotics are finally kicking in? Maybe using the neti pot has loosened something. Last night i had TMI.....globs of green and blood come out of my nose.

How do i convince my doctor to refer me to an ENT? I cant keep going through this and being thrown on antibiotics each time.

Birthday party invitation and covid

Little M came home with an invitation to a birthday party next month.

I know that we can't live in fear and things have been lifted regarding covid but is this a really good idea?

She cannot be vaccinated.
She has had severe respiratory issues leading to hospitalization.
Shes on daily medication as well has inhalers.

Theres really no details in the invitation other than the location and date. I doubt everyone will be wearing masks. I will be contacting the parent to get that info but should i even consider letting little M go?

I know she wants to and wants to hang out with her friends more outside of school. Its just still so scary. Covid numbers are up in unvaccinated here.

Nail health advice

I have always been a nail biter. I would go through periods when i didnt bite them and they would grow out nicely then back id go to biting.

Well i dont do it anymore. Thus my nails have been growing out but they keep breaking.

Now i have to say i have NO idea how anyone wears fake long ass nails or grows out nature ones. I cant type on my phone, i end up scratching myself all the time...i get them caught on stuff.

I just broke the nail on my left baby finger. Man that shit hurt!

My thumb nails are nice and thick and dont bend but all my finger nails are thin and bend easily.

Is there a supplement i should be taking, a polish i should put on etc to help them not break?

TIA grin

Anyone else feel self care is overwhelming?

I know i need to take better care of myself. I have lost a bit of weight, clothes are loose, more flabby, though the scale doesnt show much. Its something. Of course i got that by simply not eating. Not healthy.

But i am stressed all the damn time.

This past weekend i had a total breakdown.

All the kids got new shoes, indoor and outdoor, for school. Little M misplaced her old outdoor shoes and asked if she could wear her new ones. I said yes.

What could happen in two friggin days...... rolleyes

Well Murphys damn law. She loses the new ones BUT finds the old ones. We spent two full days tearing the entire house apart.

All. Of. Us. Wh was already pissed off he lost a game on his new phone and had already reset his old phone before he realized it even after i asked him to make sure everything transferred properly. Add in missing shoes and a house now torn apart. He was not nice to be around...

I have a huge shelf/shoe rack at the front door. Thats where shoes are to go! Do ya think MY damn demon children can put them there??? No!

I totally broke down. Feeling like no matter what i do these kids just wont listen. I wanted to go walk into the forest, out the back and into the river! I have been militant with them from day one on cleaning and keeping things in their place. I have taken everything away from them. I have used praise and rewards. I just dont know what else to do to get it through their god damn little heads.

I am tired. The sinus thing has returned. The pain, pressure...lots of OTC pain meds, antibiotocs and neti pot and i am barely functioning. Got garbage out and one load of (mostly mine) laundry done. I should be resting but if i dont get things done A. It wont get done and B. Ill end up hearing about it.

I want to go soak in the tub. I wont. And i dont understand why i can't do something like allow myself to have a hot bath.

What is wrong with me...

New things and anxiety???

Its a normal thing to experience some anxiety with "new things" right?

I expect that with things like a move, new school, new job, but what about small things?

Wh and i have paid off the tabs on our phones and could finally upgrade. We wanted new phones so dd could then have my current phone and DS could have DD's phone, all of us on the family plan.

We all went to the store yesterday to "look at" our options. Ended up ordering the new phones which are being shipped directly to us. Wh wasnt much help picking out the phones, saying whatever i got he wanted since he isnt tech savvy...

We both prefer android over iPhone and i wanted to stick with the Galaxy A series since i am familiar with it. It was a choice between A32 and A52. 32 in stock 52 not. Not much of a price difference but a lot more storage in 52 so we went with them.

The problem was not being in stock. I order off Amazon. Its not like i haven't ordered stuff before but today i feel anxious about it. I could have done it all online through their web site but doing it In store knocked off 2 weeks in shipping time.

Maybe it's the switching of data from our old phones to new phones that has me uptight. Buy In store and they do that for me.

Since i have to go back to the store to set up DD's old phone for ds with a new SIM card i was told if i had any issues with smart switch they would help.

This isn't a huge deal at all but i feel like theres a rave going on in my stomach.

I have been making small changes lately. Drinking more water, less coffee (one cup down from a full pot). No longer biting my nails so now i have talons lol. Vaping less. Less snacking. Seems i am losing weight too. All of that and yet im not feeling better. Still tired snd a hell of alot more anxious about stuff. Wth!

Anyone else feel this way?

And we have more piglets!!!

Went to feed tHE pigs and our large girl who NEVER misses feeding time didn't come out of the house.

She came out only after i went in to check. Two little piglets were in the corner. Two more were dead. Squished by mom is what it looks like.

Of course mom had to pick the non farrowing side.... so while she ate i set up the bumper bar so she can lay down but not roll onto the babies.

I also removed the dead babies and took the two live ones out because the other two females wouldn't stay out of that side of the house. The kids are caring for them now.

Both piglets are girls.

The black one has glazed over blue eyes, blind maybe? It doesnt make any noise and cant stand as one leg appears injured.

The brown piglet squeals nice and loud. Looks healthy. She can probably go back to mom. The other one will be hand fed.

Mom still looks full of babies so I'm watching her. I have her locked into the house now so the other pigs won't bother her. They can use the other side.

Bella doesn't seem to even notice lol.

Vent a weekend of raging

Have you ever just been full of rage for days? Ok its a dumb question to ask on this site but man oh man i raged non stop all weekend long.

I was supposed to drop off some things to my parents and do some early school shopping Saturday but I felt off, sick, not myself....ok i felt like i had been drugged. That ugh feeling. I slept like shit, felt shakey. I knew it best not to venture out.

Wh kept pushing for me to go, despite me saying i wasn't up to it (long drive). He wouldn't stop pushing. It was getting on my nerves.

I told him we needed to get the grass cut BEFORE it rained and that he needed to cut AROUND THE HOUSE before doing along the driveway where NO ONE FUCKING WALKS. I said it nicer then that but he then snapped at me saying i have no right to tell him how or where to cut the grass and to just keep my damn mouth shut because i don't know anything.

He tells me to shut up a lot.

This time it triggered absolute rage. I screamed at him. I screamed at the kids. Told them all they were a bunch of useless shits that walk over a mess instead of cleaning it up and i was done being their fucking slave.

Ya know what they all did all fucking weekend???

Played video games.


I had already started laundry Saturday morning but guess what, i refused to finish it. They want clean clothes they can get it.

Dinner. Ya fuck them all. Told them to figure it all out themselves. Good thing i taught the kids to cook.

I ended up sitting in the van at one point because i knew if i stayed inside i would start throwing things.

I have asked DS to get off the PS4 three times since i got home today and that was after telling him NO games today. So i walked up to him and calmly asked if i need to smash the TV to get his attention... he whinned...shut it off and is now pouting in his room.

Next up is the wifi...dd wont get out of her fucking room, wont do her daily chores without a damn fight and threatening to run away because omg mom asked her to clean the litter box or help with wifi is off. See how long before she comes out to bitch.

I swear wh has told them not to listen to me ever...

And yesterday we had an unexpected visitor who actually commented on the fact that wh didn't cut the grass WHERE WE ALL WALK AROUND THE HOUSE. Ha!

I'm better today. i still feel shitty, sick but not able to really pinpoint what exactly feels sick. Rage wise I'm better. Then again wh is at work. I don't have to see him and i can ignore his messages.

Note: i always tell the kids i love them but im jot going to tolerate shitty behaviour anymore. I deserve better than that and they are old enough not to act like that.

New glasses any tips on picking frames?

So i finally caved and made myself an appointment to see an optometrist.

I desperately need new glasses as my current frames are being held together with hot glue lol

That and well my age is showing because my sight has changed sooooooo much in the last year. I used to only need glasses to drive, now i cannot see my hand in front of my face clearly, cannot read a text with my glasses on.

I have been using the virtual try on feature at this optometrists web site. I am struggling to find anything that i like.

I am ok with wild and crazy.

My face has aged horribly. I mean so totally awful i won't need a mask for halloween. Thank god for masks in public!!!

I have the eye lids are swollen and hang over my eye lashes ( yes going back to my doctor this time for this problem), i think i can take the award for most wrinkles in one face lol.

(Can one thin out in the face if they lose weight because i am totally motivated to go skin and bone at this point).

I know round frames make me look fatter than i am.

More rectangle frames like what i have now look better than my old glasses that are round.

Should i opt for thick frames or thin ones or the ones where the lense are only held on at the top, no frame around the bottom?


If you wear glasses how did you pick your frames?

Psychological impact of covid

DD had two eye appointments today so it wasn't worth dropping off twins at school and heading back home. Just brought all kids in at once.

That meant two hours between start of school and eye appointments then another two hours before picking up twins after appointments.

(Its a 35 minute trip home and then back so not worth the time or gas to drive back and forth)

Brought the older kids to a park in town. Awesome park. Has a splash pad. Huge swings and climber.

They love it and we were the only people here in the morning.

After the appointments we came back to a busy park. Not packed but theres people here now.

DS said he is afraid to be around anyone because he cannot get vaccinated.

DD doesnt want to be near people either even with her first shot.

Its not like they are up in peoples faces. Everyone is still maintaining distance and my kids have masks. But they are very hesitant to go play.

DD also said shes not comfortable because there could be kidnappers around, listening to much online about the sex trafficking stuff... its good to be aware and informed and know what to do but now my kids just seem scared all the time.

With things opening up more and things going back to the old normal ways, how do you help your kids feel safe?

When i was growing up i was out playing with my friends until the street lights came on. No adults watching us every second. I havent been a helicopter parent, i have let the kids go play but maybe I've been to protective?

Clerical errors how is this even possible?

So i have mentioned wh was approved for a newer vehicle and we ended up with a van. Everything was handled over the phone. Vehicle itself was in a city on the other side of province and was driven out to us. When it got here, the driver took off the dealer plates and our new plates were put on.

Ownership with said plate and all the paperwork was provided.

That was back IN MAY.

Today i left to pick up the twins from school.

Passed Ontario provincial police parked at the 4 corners in town. I had watched a dump truck stop in the middle of intersection earlier and thought oh good cops are watching.

No sooner thought that that i noticed officer was behind me, then lights and siren...

Two officers approached, one on each side.

My van was flagged because my plates were NOT ATTACHED to this vehicle....


They take my license, ownership and tell me to wait. I try to call school no answer so i email teacher. I tell the officers where i am going and that if they want they can follow me home to get all of the paperwork i got when the van arrived.

They then say to come with them to their vehicle. I am shown the alert and am instructed to go pick up the kids, come home then take all the paperwork to the ministry of transportation to sort it all out In a separate vehicle.

So i finally get a hold of wh tell him to get his butt home after telling him what happened, head to town get the twins and head home.

My brother came by to pick up other brothers boat so he stays with kids and wh and i go to town in other vehicle.

Wh had contacted dealership. They said it was a clerical error with MTO, get to MTO and they say its a dealership error.

MTO speaks to dealership. But it needs to be taken care of at thr MTO office in thr city the plates were purchased so dealership will be figuring it all out. We hope.

I have to still get kids to school AND have an appointment for dd tomorrow so MTO says go to OPP office and explain, which we do so im told at OPP

office they will send out an email so im "hopefully" not stopped and ticketed.

Wh said we will just do what we did before getting second van, idrive him to work and take the other van. That avoids any chance if a ticket and having van towed.

The plates were registered to the van on May 21. Yet taken off on May 25th. Who did it and why remains a mystery but dammit my nerves are totally shot!!!

Anyone ever experience a clerical error like this before buying a vehicle???

Tush? Medical peeps need some opinions plz

So dd has this rash thing on the back and sides of her neck.

It appeared after going swimming.

No rash anywhere else on her body. No one else has this who was also swimming.

Doc prescribed Betamethasone .05% 2×/ day. Other than moisturize it she says the cream makes it itchy.

A rash is a rash but this has been going on for over a month. It looks to get better then gets all red and scaly again.

She hasn't changed soaps, shampoos, anything that would explain this reaction.

Any advice or opinions are greatly appreciated.

Products you are really happy with amd would recommend

What products have you purchased that you just totally love?

I saw a product advertised and thought it was perfect for when the kids throw a tantrum.

Yes we are now the proud owners of The Screaming Goat. A small (didnt realize how small) toy of a goat standing in a stump. When pressed the goat screams.

And more funny than the goat itself is that the kids ACTUALLY USE IT when they are pissed off or upset. DS was trying to complete a task in thry ps4 game Spyro. He was getting so angry then stopped went into the kitchen and pressed the goat.


Ds was able to then finish the task lol

I had a screaming fit (not me the goat) when the fix we did to the well didn't work.

Its amazingly cathartic lol

Anyone here on a well with submersible pump?

Ya. No water. Joy.

I do have a question at the end so bear with me.

Through watching videos amd talking to a contractor here i confirmed that the pump itself is ok. Power supply is ok. Pressure switch, however wasnt working as its supposed to.

Switch is all corroded and the part that moves below the springs isnt moving.

So new switch purchased.

Mistake #1. Already had a damn new switch hanging on the peg board above the work bench. Face palm!

So instead of waiting for wh to get home i figured id get it done myself...waaaaaaaaa why must Murphys Law be a thing....if it CAN go wrong it WILL go wrong.

Step one undo wiring (ya ya after killing power, did that yesterday so all good.)

Step two, unscrew switch from copper pipe that comes off T pipe.

This is where things went wrong. Instead of the SWITCH coming off, the copper pipe unscrewed from the T pipe. Usually NOT a big deal however i cannot get the copper pipe off the old switch...

Problem number one is that we had replaced the pressure tank and that tank is larger than old tank and it pinched the switch so that in order to unscrew it i ended up bending the sides. This happening on the old switch is fine but i can't do that with the new switch when screwing it on.. so

I require a smaller copper pipe piece that's threaded on both ends to attach back to the T pipe. One more trip to the store once wh comes home.

My question is does the length of the copper pipe that attaches the switch to the T pipe matter? I wouldn't think so...but im no pro lol

I have decided that we will be installing a water softener system with iron removing salt. That requires an entire re-piping of that whole section from where the line comes IN the house to where it attaches to the UV light. Fun fun. During that install i will move the tank over so theres no issue with the switch. Right now i just want water. And a shower.

Random thoughts

I get those every now and then. Something random will pop into my head and I'll think hmmmmm I wonder.

For example. How the hell does anyone hit a porcupine on the road? Its not like they are fast and dash out in front of you like crazy squirrels. Have you actually ever seen one walk on asphalt? They walk funny with a "ewe ewe ewe" expression trying to touch the road as little as possible. And it's not like they are small. So you ain't gonna miss it.

Also, for those of us weirdos who have Milk Bags...what do you do when you cant find the damn milk container? I swear I have four these stupid containers in the house. Cant find one though ...

I ended up cutting a juice container in half and sticking the bag in there. So along with the sock and Tupperware top thief I have a milk container bandit.

Ever have any totally random thoughts/questions?

Funniest things your kids have ever said?

So Little M got into the Harry Potter movies with WH while they snuggled and she was sick. All the kids joined in and got into the movies.

Today while watching Sister Act, DS yells to me from the living room as I'm cooking dinner:

"Hey mom, the old lady in the penguin suit is the lady in Harry Potter"

"Penguin suit" I'm dying....

To cute not to share not a spider promise!!!

After WH went to work I headed back to the bedroom and as I walked in I turned on the light.

That's when I noticed these two. One pair of our sugar gliders.

Top white is Juliet. Bottom regular is Bob.

The looks on their faces are just priceless. I disturbed their "activity" by turning in the light. It's as if they both are saying "dude for the love if god turn off the light" hahaha

Note: the bottom is newspaper that their cage mate Mo likes to shred every night. Not sure why she does that. I clean the cage daily and wash their bowls when they are asleep in their pouches or else Bob comes after my fingers...hes protective if his girls.

Fb messenger question

Wh showed me his messenger on his phone because there was a conversation that was "locked" and he didn't understand why ...(duh that's the secret conversation feature AND it was a with a woman no less....*rolls eyes...)

Two things:

First when I logged into his messenger from MY phone this person doesn't even show up on his list...what's with that?!?

And if you send someone a message in messenger using the secret conversation feature that means this woman could have opened it and it would appear on his screen but that doesn't mean necessarily that HE started the conversation right?!? And that's why she doesn't show up when I open it on MY phone? Ugh!!!

I hate this secret conversation crap!!!! Thanks FB for making hiding shit easier...

So what do you get when you challenge a pig to a tug of war?

Why can't you share a bed with a pig?

Funnies that aren't so funny

Ya know those stories that you read that's funny but it's because it didn't happen to you?

I got one of those. (Warning snake involved in story).

My parents came up for a visit and to help with anchoring the framework for the new garage doors into the cement. Watching WH and my dad work together is funny enough but...My mom doesn't like snakes. Like really doesn't like snakes. Here she is standing to the side of the garage having a smoke when WH swoops in, grabs the garter snake that's attempting to get into the garage and whisks it away in one fluid motion hoping that she didn't see. (He ran away with it, he didn't throw it!)

Nope. She saw and wasn't the least bit happy that a snake had been that close to her. So for the remainder of the visit she stayed on the opposite side of the garage.

That is....Until once again WH comes swooping in to grab the SAME snake that is once again trying to get.into the garage, this time from the other side. OMG the look on my mom's face was priceless.

At that point WH says that the snake must like her. I think had he been in arm's reach she might have slapped him lol.

If you could not adult...

What would you do first?

(Not sure if this is going back to being a kid with the knowledge of being an adult or not. Or just having a day to just not be an adult. Your choice I guess ). Ya know, cause adulting just sucks sometimes.

I would first:

There's a place I pass on the way to my parents. They have bouncy castles. First time I drove by it was a huge panda. Then I saw a huge tractor and actual castle. I'm assuming they provide the bouncys for party's. I think I'd rent every one they had, set them all up in the backyard and just bounce from one to another all day long.

Then once I had my fun of being Tigger I'd break out the finger paints and create a masterpiece.

What would your not adulting look like?

Fun with eggs

I wanted to keep this light and fun so here it is in F&G.

DD's class was given a home assignment. They will be doing the Egg Drop Challenge on Monday.

Create a device that will protect an egg from breaking when dropped off the roof of the school. The instructions were pretty open but rules included no balloons or parachutes.

DD and i have created the ultimate marbled, sponged, baby powder & pop bottle, elastic egg protection unit.

We have successfully dropped it out of the sunroom onto the driveway with egg remaining intact. Cross winds were a bit of a concern but we corrected that will the marbles.

(Pictures will come I promise).

I also added a bit of my artistic humour to the project, which I'm sure should get a laugh...

So..... If you needed to drop an egg off of a roof, what creative idea would you come up with so that it didn't get scrambled?

Rules: no balloons or parachutes. Oh and the egg cannot be hard boiled...

FB messenger question

Is the option for "secret conversations" turned off when you install messenger?

I never had it on my phone because it was to full with pictures and videos of the kids and had no space. We got the computer, I downloaded everything then wiped those folders so I had space. Messenger got loaded. I rarely use it hit today while going through the options I see the section for those secret conversations. Mine was not turned on.

So I check WH phone. The secret conversations option was on....

No surprise there but before I go off the deep end on him....Is there a chance that when installed that option was already on or,like my phone it's always off unless you turn it on?

Tips for sites

I was looking through WH phone. He has an Android. In settings....It has a "site settings" section. So, he can visit a web site and delete that he's been there within the History BUT it's listed as a cookie I think in this other section.

Guess what? My WH has been looking at porn. Ha! Even with deleting the history I have evidence of ALOT of visits!

It lists the sites according to KB. So I'm assuming the sites with the most KB he visits often. Joy.

Hope that helps those looking for evidence.

Funny snake story

The title gives fair warning. Continue reading only if you can find the humour in ME having the shit scared out of me

2am this morning got up to go to the bathroom. I don't turn on the bedroom or hall lights so I don't wake everyone up. Come out of the bathroom, take two steps into the bedroom and step on "something". Reach down and I KNOW...its a SNAKE!.

Instead of clamly turning on the light I scream bloody murder thus waking WH and all four kids.

We had been given three ball pythons over the weekend. Beautiful snakes! And totally harmless. Because WH and I got consumed with the pump problem we didn't set them up into individual containers in our rack but left them in a huge bin on the top of it with heat.

Apparently they popped the top.

That means that THREE snakes were MIA.

The one I found with my foot WH grabbed.

I found number two behind the door.

Number three???

By this time the twins were screaming and the older two had come out to see what was going on. WH asked them to look for the third snake while he went to tend to the twins. From the living room DD and DS call out that they found it. Yay. I go grab it and put it back with the other two.

Snake escapees recaptured. Lid secured.

I have handled small gators and caimans and large lizards with nasty attitudes but a small snake sends me screaming. I chalk it up to being half asleep. Needless to say WH teased me about it this morning.

The gift that freaks you out?

Only I would be given such a gift....seriously why can't someone show up with a truck and trailer with a horse or pony or even a donkey...?!? Nooooo. Here DragnHeart how about the world's largest Tarantula...

The photo doesn't do him justice at all. He's got his legs tucked in, but at full spread he's as large as a dinner plate. (That's 12" across!). He's due for a moult. Seeing as they fling their hairs at you when stressed (it's a defence thing and the hairs are very irritating) I hope so, his butt is nearly bald. I was told he's more docile than usual but I won't be handling him and yes I'm using "him". He hasn't been cooperative in raising his butt for me to take a good look to determine sex.

This is a Goliath Bird eater. Something WH always wanted and MINE. Haha! Ok so I'm not 100% excited about this creature and I can't tell you how long the drive home felt with this guy in a clear container on the passenger seat...the whole time moving around. Shutter!

One thing is for sure. I won't ever me a hand model...yikes my hand looks bad! Lol

Need help asap with android

Is there a program (Dr. Fone for example) that will log the conversations from Facebook messenger?

Or is there a way to have the facebook messenger conversations backed up or saved without WH knowing, something I can do through messenger itself even if he deleted the conversation?

I checked WH fb activity log. Last night while I was out he sent a friend request to what appears to be an employee from his previous job (their mutual friends are two people I know who work there). Noessages have been exchanged as of yet but I know there will be...

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Do you have a particular line from a movie you find yourself using or just really like?

Currently WH is using "fa-da!" Alot. It's from the animated movie Home. We can't help but giggle when one of us says:

"Can I come into the out now?" Or

"What us the purpose of your face?"

Again both lines from Home. (Can you tell we watch this movie alot... ).

So yesterday WH decided to clean out the ball pythons cages and while I was sitting on the sofa, handed me one to hold. In this photo doesn't it appear that he is absolutely huge??? I took this with my phone.

It has begun!!!

I am not a sock person. Bare feet all the way...even in the winter (inside of course ). And luckily my kids have followed in my footsteps...pun totally intended. sandles and crocs being the preferred footware.

But alas with school finally here the shoes and socks thing is a must. And with new socks comes the sock monster. A little invisible fellow that eats up socks like candy...but of course just ONE from a pair. He IS real!!! Last night I washed 6 pairs of new socks for DS. This is what I was left with when the load was dried and folded.

Somewhere there's a matching set just like this one but I fear its in the belly of the dreaded sock monster...

(And yes he's totally into Spiderman right now. Shirt, pants, socks, shoes, jacket...even his underwear lol).

I first saw these in a mall display many many years ago while with my dad. Nothing like spending an hour or more staring at these learning how to make them appear lol He bought a couple of plaquemounted ones. I got a calendar. Recently I found the calendar. These things just pop out at me. I don't have any problem seeing the image. WH can't at all and refuses to look at them.

So, has anyone else been fascinated by these and can anyone here tell me what this is a 3D image of? I have 12 more I can post. (Note: I took the photo and made sure I could see it first so the image wasn't distorted by the camera.)

Let's start off with grumpy frog. Yes grumpy frog....this is a Pixie frog. And yes he can draw blood if he bites...he eats mice sometimes but prefers worms.

This is him in comparison to a milk container. He's still so small & cute lol

I'm working on getting photos but some of our animal friends just aren't being cooperative...or are in the mist of eating rats and are not to be disturbed

There are two seasons in





And while I know the construction needs to be done being stuck waiting for 45min with all four kids in the truck was NOT fun.

Today DD and I headed out together. I decided since we had AC in the car we would chance the same route. To my surprise ALL of the work was done. Road nicely paved.

DD says from the back seat "mommy did Lightening McQueen pave this road? It's all new". OMG!!! I replied that No Lightening McQueen didn't pave the road. If he would have been done sooner. DD nods and says " probably".

(This after spending a good five minutes trying to convince our goat Stripes that the car seat Was. Not. For. Him...I needed some laughs).

share your "awkward" moments

I'll begin.

Last night it was hot. WH goes to the bedroom after kids have gone to bed to search for his "skull boxers" and in the process finds a black spaghetti string camasol top for me (we share the same closet). I think oh what the heck I'll just wear that and my black boy shorts while we watch a movie. As I am about to leave the bedroom I grab my PJ pants and WH asks why. I say "because knowing our luck someone will come to the door tonight" (see where this is going...)

Movie starts. WH is rubbing my leg. We talk a a bit. A nice evening. Then it happens. Door bell goes off. ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!!!!

Both of us jump up, I grab my PJ pants and start putting them on as I run through the kitchen, grabbing my zipper sweater and head to the sunroom door. Of course by this time the visiter is at the sliding doors of the living room banging away. Ugh! (We really need to install a gate to prevent people from getting up that far!).

The guy almost yells at me "are those your cows?". Ummm no I tell him. Turns out one has gotten out of the field and is enjoying the long green grass at the side of the road. I didn't stop to tell WH (who was getting dressed) what happened. Nope I just grabbed my keys, hopped in the truck and proceeded to block said cow from the road. WH came down and shooed the cow back through the gate I opened, he actually touched it...I am so proud of him lmao

All this done with me in my pjs.

While it could be said that I have psychic abilities I tend to lean towards "its just my luck" this would happen while I'm sitting in plain sight in my underwear...

here fishy fishy fishy

Never been "normal"... Can't even have a "normal" fish. This is an electric catfish. And yes he packs a punch. So much so that when we got him the guy getting him out of the tank used a glove all the way up to his shoulder and a net large enough for a shark to get this is the largest one I've seen. 6" at least.

Just thought I'd see if anyone else here is into fishys lol

goats have grown!!!

Its amazing how quickly these guys have grown. Starting with the brown one that's Spot, then Stripes (white) then Fuzzy. Fuzzy is the pygmy. He was huge with a winter coat. Now he's shed that and wow is he tiny lol.

As you can see their horns have come in. I have to be careful lol. Stripes likes to head butt me. Spot is so tall when he stands up he can almost get over the gate.

one cup of cuteness

Met a young woman looking to rehome her pet dumbo rats. Got Splinter (an albino),and Kella (black with some white).

A couple days after bringing them home Kella had a litter...

Most are albinos. Two all black. One black with a white tummy and white feet and these five.....blues. Well grey blue.

Aren't they just adorable? (I had the measuring cup full of food for them then took out the five out to determine their sex. All are boys. Wondering if its a genetic thing that ONLY boys turn out this colour).

wheres the bacon???

In my sunroom because Monty won't stay out of the fridge!!!

(This is what happens when people know my WH will take in unwanted pets... ).

At least yes litter trained. Told he's crate trained but the only way to get him in it is to bring out his harness...runs for the hills when he sees it. On the other hand he loves his coat.

i can't believe i just said...

"Please don't pick your nose with your toes" to DD.

Yep. You read that correctly. My lovely six year old just proved she's very flexible and needs to use a Kleenex!!! Gross.

It also proves that she has really tiny toes when she can fit one up her nose...

Isn't being a parent fun

ya know what makes me sad...

Is that there will never be a "turkey people" thread full of photos and the sharing stories of gobbling with ones turkey...

Tom is still in the basement. WH thought since the "deck pen" needed his touch... that Tom would yet again be spending the night inside. All was well until we heard a bang...Tom decided that his pen was now his perch...40lb bird can't fly eh WH?!?

For Christmas WH actually bought me a turkey call kit. One wood box and top that you rub that makes turkey sounds, one puck looking thing that you again rub with a stick and a mouth piece (I haven't tried that yet).

So the kids and I spent some time before school "talking" to Tom. I'm not sure what we are talking about but man can he gobble loud! He also coos and clucks softly.

Man I hope he doesn't think I am his mate

understanding data usage?

Is there a way to understand data usage? On the online cell phone account I can see info on airtime used, texts (sent received numbers) and data usage. Its the data usage that is confusing.

WH plays the game Tribes. Every morning he does whatever he does in the game while we have coffee. I have noticed that early in the morning there's always high data use, maybe 5.56mb or greater. Is that something that would show when an ad pops up in his game? Or is that like looking at a web page?

We aren't using iPhone anymore. On my old iPhone I know I could log into private web viewing that wouldn't show on the log. I don't see that "feature" on this phone. I had full access to WH phone yesterday. His call log is intact, his web history intact and dating back months. Nothing suspicious on the phone at all. Just weird times and amounts of data usage showing on his accoubt. I have started making note of when he has the phone at home and when the data is high to see if I can make sense of it but any insight is greatly appreciated.

Is anyone familiar with this site?

I am getting regular emails stating that my info is "out there" on so many sites and that if I "click here" I can remove said info.

I have never clicked the Link.

When I had DDay I searched for OWs SO and know I must have used that site (I did searches everywhere but don't remember specifically). Now I'm getting emails that he is doing searches on me. Again there's a "view details" link and no haven't touched it.

Is it possible the site is fishing for me to click their links? I strongly doubt ows SO would bother to look me up now.

deleting linkedin account?

I have been all over the site both full and mobile and I can't figure out how to delete the linkedin account. I can see where it allows me to upgrade but nowhere can I find a place that says delete account.

they are All girls!!!!!

Dd came home and began making a reindeer hat. I remembered I had bought a set of reindeer hats (each with a name of Santa's reindeer) and I gave them to her. Between making us wear them and wearing them herself she asked what the names were. WH, while wearing "Dancer" said "his name is..." To which I replied...

"No actually they are all girls!"

WH once again says "his" and again I correct him lol

He then says "you will come to my side on this"....

Ummm no! According to the following it turns out that all of Santa's reindeer are girls and that's that!

snappy come backs and practical jokes

I lack the ability to have snappy come backs but man do I need some! Have been taking all four kids out Christmas shopping a lot lately (still trying to find a gift for WH). You have no idea how many times I get asked if the babies are twins.....

Really??? After about the tenth time saying yes I really started to wish I had some snappy come back, especially when they say "oh look a girl and boy, Are they Identical?". WH suggested I look at them with a smile and say "no they're triplets" then go into panic mode freaking out about where I left the third one Do you think that would be a bit much?

Now when it comes to practical jokes I am totally on the ball! WH brought home a bag of cat nip in hopes that we could keep our cat from "playing" with the toilet paper.

We also have a chihuahua that is smaller than the cat but insists on humping him non stop. Why the cat tolerates this even a little is beyond me. I thought hmmmm maybe we should cover the dog in catnip and let the cat go to town on him...then it occurred to me. My brothers gf has two cats. She wants slippers for Christmas...why not marinate the slippers in catnip...

Again, to much???

movies you can watch over and over and over

Does anyone have a particular movie they just love so much they can watch it over and over and over without getting bored of it???

I do!

How To Train Your Dragon...

Man I love this movie. Ok ya totally goes with my screen name but more than that the subtle humour is brilliant and the entire scene between Hiccup and Toothless without any dialog is amazing. The best part is that this movie will continue over and over as long as the DVD player is on. No need to start it up again. WH and I watched this nightly for at least a month before putting on another movie.

Hopefully Santa will bring me number two for Christmas lol

theres got to be a better way!!!

11 hours of VAR recordings....not my record though, I think that was 15 hours but OMG my ears hurt!!!

Mostly because I had ear plugs in and there's a background hum that's blaring at times...ugh!

I used to download the file to a computer then view in a player that "showed" the recording. I could pick and chose what to listen to by seeing spikes in the recording indicating something more than just the HUM. I don't have that computer anymore or any to use at the moment so I had to listen to it all...

It was set to voice activation only but that Hum sets it off. Maybe setting it at a lower sensitivity will help.

Has anyone had this problem with vars?

weird email activity

Wh and OW2 used one email they created to avoid mei found out, changed password and account has been unused since.

I still keep it active though. Ow tried to contact who there so I keep it to see if she does again.

Anyways, other than the regular outlook emails the account has just receives two emails. They are from a site that sells stuff. One was a welcome email, the second a products on sale email.

The email has subscribed to the site.

My question is: will web sites add random emails to generate business or has someone (either WH or ow) signed up using that email?

Its not a sex or relationship site at all but the store this site is based off is in the same city as ow. It just rubs me the wrong way, ya know?

t/j christmas cards post cards

I'm getting nostalgic - did anyone ever do the postcard chains when they were a kid? I did and literally received hundreds from all over the world. This is even better, because it's a) personal and b) well...sparkly!

I saw this question in the other thread but its locked now so can't respond. I didn't do a post card chain but I did go crazy with pen pals. It started as a school project in our French language class. Write to someone in France. There was a program. You fill out the form and they mail you names and address of kids from around the world. Well I didn't stick to France. I sent out requests for all over! I think I maxed out at 26.

I found that very enjoyable and I always looked forward to the mail I have since lost touch with most or we use internet/email but I would love to go back to snail mail.

koodo mobile users? mms question

I use the self serve app to track usage and pay my bill. I set up WH account so I could pay his bill as well. When I checked today I noticed that his MMS sent/received numbers don't match to mine so.....

1. Are MMS photos sent through texts?

Since he has WAY more sent and received than I do that means he is sending and receiving photos in his text messages? This doesn't sit well with me at all...

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

can you delete a linkedin account?

I am about to have a nervous breakdown. Wh has a LinkedIn account. Ow viewed it. He might be able to log into the account itself but the email used I have control of. He does not so....ow views and I know about it. Its sent me into horrible bitch mode. I want to tear a strip off this woman...

So is there a way to just delete the damn LinkedIn account? I can't find it and anything to do with editing only shows how to upgrade. I want it gone!

you guys are lucky lol

Yep. Lucky that I can't figure out how to post a video of the best prank I have seen. Unsuspecting people open doors or come around the corner to then be chased by, wait.......

A HUGE spider!!!

Its actually a dog in a suit but at first glance all they see is eight huge hairy legs running at them.

One setup had human body parts (fake of course) hanging from webbing. Then the dog spider comes out to chase the guy and his only escape leads him into a mass web.

No worries. I might be ok with real spiders but something like that would have me screaming and proving I can still run like when I was in track and field lol

oh crap busted!

When using a Var, make sure its hidden well...

I had put the var in WH car. I thought I had snugged it nicely under the floor mat but alas it was NOT "under" the mat!!!

Yesterday DD and I had a mommy daughter day. We took the car. Wh was putting her car seat in the back and there, plain as day was the Var. Ugh!

Wh had worked a double shift and I hadn't been able to sneak out to the car yet to retrieve the var.

We exchanged looks but nothing was said. Needless to say I know putting it in the car is now useless. Owell...

At least he didn't think it was a bomb lol

whats your ring tone???

One thing I LOVE about my new android phone is the ability to download new ringtones without having to deal with iTunes. So..... Yes I have been having fun listening to different ones. My dads ring tone is the "angry ring". He's been known to not answer his phone until it gets very angry because he finds it so amusing lol

I have a nice selection of rings. Walter from a Jeff Dunham show, excuse me sir, cotton eye Joe and fishing in the dark songs. Muppets (a favourite).

So today upon seeing the fox outside I quickly snapped a few photos, text WH then ran out the other side of the house to bring in our tortoises. In doing this I pocket dialed WH. Yep. His phone went off in the middle of helping a customer. And guess what his ring tone is??? For ME its the phone telling him that its his wife and not to answer lol. Figures!

So what's your ring tone? Do you select different tones for different people or just stick to one?

unwelcome visitors lol

I don't have a problem with spiders. I can handle snakes. I welcome wild turkeys. But....I draw the line at cattle! Lol

I went to meet the kids at the bus to find we had two visitors in the driveway.


These two apparently knocked down part of The fence trying to get to some yummy bushes on our side. Ugh! At least they are friendly. I called the farmer next door and he came. Its amazing how the bulls knew him and followed him to the back gate and into the field.

WH would have been locked in the house. He's terrified of them lol
