Discount Motilium, Siena and I curl up on the couch to read a bedtime story. I notice a gnat or small fly or something in her hair and casually brush at it, expecting it to fly away. Instead of flying, 30mg Motilium, it scuttles deeper into her hair. I look closer and see at least three more bugs crawling. OH.
Lice, Discount Motilium.
I send Matt to Walgreen's for lice treatment and immediately begin bagging up couch pillows and washing sheets and clothes in hot water. Our washing machine and dryer don't stop churning for days, 1000mg Motilium. I check Elliot's, Matt's, and my own hair compulsively. Motilium usa, I research non-pesticide remedies and become more knowledgeable than I ever wanted to be on the life cycle of the louse. Discount Motilium, I find bugs in Elliot's curls two days later and the laundry and combing intensity ratchets up yet another level. Luckily, he still has the fine, wispy texture of baby hair and is easily combed through. Siena, Motilium craiglist, not so much. We spend hour after miserable hour combing and grousing at each other while "watching the Olympics." Siena can't see much because her head is angled down and she has hair in her eyes. I miss every stuck landing in gymnastics because I am scrutinizing strand after strand for nits, Motilium us, or trying to get the fine-toothed comb through her snarled ends without causing tears. We end each combing session exhausted and furious with each other, Discount Motilium. She resents me for hurting her, and I resent her lack of appreciation for the insame amount of patience it takes to comb two cubic feet of thick, snarled, bug-infested hair on a screaming person who hates you for doing it, 200mg Motilium. That child has a ridiculous amount of hair.
When Lice Shampoo #1 doesn't work, we treat Siena's hair with Listerine based on a friend's recommendation on Facebook. 500mg Motilium, She stinks of mouthwash for days, but I am perversely excited to comb out a bunch of dead baby lice (nymphs would be the technical term) after the treatment. Discount Motilium, These bugs are too young to have laid eggs, and I don't see any nits. I begin to dare to hope that we are breaking the cycle and getting past this Time of Awfulness.
The next day I find four adult lice in my own hair.
Having made the highly embarrassing phone call ("Hi, Motilium canada, I can't come in to the office today because I have head lice"), I call my mom and beg for help. She comes over and treats my hair, 150mg Motilium, combing it with the nit comb and patiently listening while I complain about everything. (Also worth mentioning: our air conditioner that had functioned flawlessly for eleven years spontaneously died on the 95-degree day that I had both lice-ridden kids at home with me, Discount Motilium. The guy who came out to fix it was probably terrified by the unhinged look in my eyes.)
After more than a week of High Infestation Alert, I've got the new routine down to a science: wake up before the kids, run around the lake (to reduce stress, theoretically), 750mg Motilium, come home and strip the beds, wash all the bedding on hot, comb Siena's hair, Motilium overseas, check Elliot and Matt, send them off to camp, comb my own hair, change my clothes before moving laundry from washer to dryer (to prevent anything I might have combed onto my shirt from getting into the clean laundry), dry on high heat, Motilium ebay, shower and scrub my hair, then re-comb. Throw in more laundry and re-start the dryer before heading to work. 40mg Motilium, Come home, make all the beds with clean sheets, check all the hair, sterilize all the combs in rubbing alcohol and hot water, wash all the dirty laundry from camp plus anything else the kids might have touched that's washable, Motilium japan, throw it in the dryer, collapse. I have just enough energy left over to be a complete jerk to everyone, 250mg Motilium, snapping at the kids for things like hugging ("get your heads AWAY from each other!") or daring to lie down on a couch that's recently been vacuumed, and berating Matt for failing to make lunches exactly the way I would or for loading the dishwasher wrong. Discount Motilium, *****
The combing sessions continue to take a toll on my relationship with Siena. When I'm not terrorizing her with the nit comb, I'm constantly yelling at her to keep her hair in a ponytail, does she want to give us all lice again for Pete's sake, Motilium india, and things like that. Her already teenager-ish attitude gets even sassier, just as my patience levels hit rock bottom. Motilium uk, We need a mediator just to get through conversations like "What kind of cereal do you want for breakfast?" but of course, I resent Matt for trying to mediate and do my best to make him regret stepping in.
A much-needed weekend restores much of my sanity and Siena and I plan a girls' day. We head out for brunch, school shopping, a haircut for her (thinking we just might have eradicated the lice; if not, at least a trim will make the combing easier) and a movie, Discount Motilium. We're both excited as we agree on croissants and orange juice to start our day, then are immediately thrown into conflict when she resists my choice of bakery, 20mg Motilium. I consider giving up on the whole plan and just going home to do more laundry. Instead, I manage to convince her that this particular award-winning bakery knows what they're doing when it comes to breakfast, 10mg Motilium, then we get to the front of the line and learn they're out of orange juice. I bring her lemonade to the table and she immediately launches a tirade about how she knew this was a bad idea, she knew we should have gone somewhere else, etc. Discount Motilium, Things improve when her cinnamon roll is delicious and I gently suggest she get over the bad mood or we can go home. Somehow, Motilium paypal, I find the deeply-hidden reserve of patience to say this nicely, rather than as a snarled threat, and she stops grousing. Motilium coupon, *****
We're happily chatting, Siena enthusiastically explaining something to me in her highly-detailed way (look at the length of this post; I wonder where she gets it...) when an older woman stops by our table on her way out:
"I just want to tell you how much joy it gives me to see you two together. It's beautiful."
I thank her, surprised, and after she leaves Siena asks if we know her, 50mg Motilium.
"No, I've never met her. I guess she just liked seeing us having fun together and was nice enough to say so." I find my voice catching slightly as I say this, Discount Motilium.
On the way to her haircut, 100mg Motilium, Siena tells me she wants to cut her hair to just past her shoulders. My length.
It looks adorable on her and she is thrilled with the result. I am too, and relieved that it will be easier to comb, Motilium australia, if, you know, we have to keep doing that. Discount Motilium, *****
After successfully finding all billion items on her school supply list, we head to the movie theater. Motilium mexico, I've heard good things about Brave but don't know much about the plot. I am surprised to find it's a mother-daughter story of conflict and forgiveness, of two stubborn people finding a way to love each other and accept each other's differences. I am even more surprised when Siena climbs into my lap during a particularly scary bear scene. She's eight, fiercely independent, and tough as nails. She loves to brag about how various Harry Potter scenes are "NOT scary AT ALL" to her, Discount Motilium. It's been years since she wanted to sit on my lap or even hold my hand during a movie. I wrap my arms around her and squeeze tightly, as much for myself as for her.
The movie ends and we continue to sit in the dark theater. She leans back into my shoulder, nestles her head against mine, and stretches her legs out to the empty seat in front of us. I have a fleeting vision of previously undetected lice crawling out of her hair and into mine -- is all my obsessive cleaning, combing, and overreacting about to be undone by a re-infestation. As quickly as the thought enters my mind, I answer it. I don't care.
We sit like that until the credits are over, then she slings my purse over her shoulder and we hold hands as we leave the theater.

Buy Motilium Over The Counter, So, Siena started Taekwondo back in January or February (who really remembers these things precisely. Not me. It was winter, anyway) and absolutely loves it, 200mg Motilium. Actually both kids started the class together, and for a minute they were both really excited about it, Motilium coupon, but there were a handful of challenges in having them both in the same class (different ability levels, different attention spans, etc.). After a couple months, 10mg Motilium, Elliot asked if he could be done for a while. It was hard for him to make it through the 45-minute class, and he was finding all the seriousness and discipline a bit of a downer, buy Motilium Over The Counter. (Perhaps we should look into stand-up comedy workshops or breakdancing classes for him; I think either of these would be a better fit, 250mg Motilium, personality-wise, at this point in his life.) Plus, who wants to be in a class where their older sister is constantly excelling, learning each new skill quickly and competently, Motilium australia, and demonstrating an almost uncanny ability to focus, despite all the distractions of other students and teachers practicing other skills nearby. 1000mg Motilium, Not Elliot, at any rate. As he happily tells everyone who asks, he's "taking the summer off." After that, 40mg Motilium, we'll see.
But Siena is another story all together. Buy Motilium Over The Counter, There is just nothing like the experience, as a parent, of watching your child step into something that absolutely suits them. Motilium overseas, Siena is competitive, almost to a fault, but Taekwondo is all about individual progress. If she works hard, Motilium paypal, she improves. It's that simple. 150mg Motilium, She's moved up to the "Juniors" class with kids her age and older, with her belt level (gold) and higher, and she is extremely driven to do her best in this setting. And she is physically capable of much more than I would have guessed, buy Motilium Over The Counter. Somehow, 30mg Motilium, because she's my daughter and looks a lot like me, I always think in the back of my mind that she and I are the same. 100mg Motilium, But she can do more push-ups -- at the age of 7 -- than I have ever done in my life. She can watch someone demonstrate a sequence of kicks and punches, and then recreate it, first leading with one side of the body, Motilium us, then the mirror opposite. I can barely comb my hair with my left hand. Buy Motilium Over The Counter, She runs fast and jumps high and balances on one leg while kicking with the other and is just generally very good at all of this. 500mg Motilium, I find myself constantly amazed.
Maybe this is how every parent feels, given that, at first introduction, Motilium uk, their child is usually a lump of adorable but helpless baby-ness. To see these lumps transition from three basic needs (food, Motilium usa, sleep, change diaper) into walking, talking human beings, is obviously the major miracle of parenthood and the reason mommyblogs and 70% of Facebook posts exist, Motilium ebay. It was amazing when my kids learned to talk, when their talking turned into conversation, Motilium india, when their rolling turned into crawling into toddling into kicking a soccer ball, etc. Each of these milestones is spectacular when your child achieves it for the first time; their progress endlessly riveting, buy Motilium Over The Counter. Still, you expected these things to happen at some point, 20mg Motilium. There is something insane about seeing your child -- not so long ago a helpless lump of cooing baby -- demolish a milestone you never even would have predicted for them, such as getting a new belt in Taekwondo. 50mg Motilium, We enrolled in the classes because the kids begged to take martial arts of some kind after watching a bazillion episodes of Power Rangers. Since martial arts was a better Power Rangers takeaway than say, early 90's hairstyles or obnoxious teenager attitudes, I agreed, Motilium canada. Buy Motilium Over The Counter, I thought Elliot would love it, Siena would tolerate it, and both would tire quickly as the Power Rangers infatuation waned.
Instead, we now spend three evenings a week at the dojang, 750mg Motilium, where Elliot plays with his Lego Star Wars guys while Siena does her class. I either work on my laptop or watch her, mesmerized as my first baby bows respectfully, speaks Korean, Motilium craiglist, executes complex routines of kick-punch-turn-block, and refrains from whining for an entire hour at a time. Motilium mexico, Who is this kid?
Matt's kid, that's who. Matt's and mine, but like I said, Motilium japan, she looks like me and she's a girl -- it's hard not to expect a mini-me, complete with the same strengths and flaws. Instead, she looks like me but loves math (my personal Kryptonite) and has a sense of direction that puts GoogleMaps to shame, buy Motilium Over The Counter. Rather than ask Siri where a place is, I would ask Siena every time. Matt used to practice pitching by endlessly hurling a tennis ball at a strike zone he outlined on his garage door. Siena runs through Taekwondo combinations whenever she has a minute of downtime.She asks about the score of whatever game is on and grinningly derides Packer fans at every opportunity, while I barely notice what sport we're watching. (Does anyone else think it's ridiculous that ice hockey and basketball are still going in JUNE?) Not that I need more sports fans in my household, but I love how she shares his enthusiasm. Buy Motilium Over The Counter, I guess I love how Matt and I are two different people and are raising children who reflect a combination of the two of us, plus their own unique traits. I'm glad I married an athlete so my children don't have to dread Field Day like I did, and I'm also thrilled when my children beg for poetry at bedtime. I love the new and unpredictable elements they introduce to our lives, like Taekwondo or playing Real-life Angry Birds by running and flinging themselves onto the couch. I love the random, crazy scramble of parenting and I love that I don't have to do it alone. Happy Father's Day, Matt.

Buy Motilium No Prescription, Elliot, singing: "Deck the halls with bells and jolly, falalala LAH la la la LAH!"
Siena, as condescendingly as possible: "NO, Elliot, it's not 'BELLS and JOLLY.' It's BALLS of FOLLY." [With this exact tone of superiority.]
Elliot: "You're mean!"
Me: "Seriously, you guys. First, Motilium craiglist, 50mg Motilium, it's JUNE and you're arguing over Christmas carols. I admire your exhaustive search for new material to fight about, Motilium ebay, Motilium japan, but seriously.
And second, 500mg Motilium. 200mg Motilium, You're BOTH wrong. HAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAA, Motilium uk. Motilium canada, HA. HA."

No RX Motilium, Siena and Elliot are obsessed with the song "We are Young" by the Band Fun. (Whose name is Fun, 40mg Motilium. Motilium uk, period. with the punctuation included, Motilium paypal. Motilium india, While I, too, Motilium us, 1000mg Motilium, take my fun very seriously, I think fun, Motilium usa. Motilium craiglist, [exclamation!] might have made a bit more sense. Then again, 50mg Motilium, Motilium overseas, I've never formed a super-popular indie pop band with a hit song that you can't ever get out of your head, so what do I know?)
My favorite part of this, 10mg Motilium, Motilium coupon, aside from the band name, is the fact that Elliot thinks this lyric: "my friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State" somehow refers to Star Wars, 200mg Motilium, 20mg Motilium, and the Empire. We encourage this misconception, 500mg Motilium, Motilium japan, as it allows us to avoid explaining what getting high in the bathroom is really about.
[You've probably already had this stuck in your head for the last several months like I have, Motilium mexico, 100mg Motilium, but in case you haven't, here's their website.

Motilium For Sale, We survived spring break a couple weeks ago, but only just barely. Motilium uk, We spent the whole time here, with one night at a hotel downtown for a mini staycation, 20mg Motilium, Motilium paypal, and the kids chose to spend every minute of their time off from school fighting with each other. It was truly incredible, 40mg Motilium, Motilium canada, the way fighting (both verbal arguing and actual physical punching and hair-pulling) seemed to be the ONLY activity they could agree on all week.
It didn't matter what we did, Motilium craiglist. 750mg Motilium, A trip to the zoo. Fun, Motilium For Sale. But then they argued the whole way there about who got to tell a story, 50mg Motilium, 150mg Motilium, and whose story was better, and "Siena's being MEAN, 200mg Motilium. Motilium usa, She said my story was DUMB!" and so forth. They argued as we walked around the zoo, 250mg Motilium, 1000mg Motilium, about which exhibit to see next, or who was eating more popcorn, Motilium mexico, 500mg Motilium, or (how is this even possible?) who touched a shark better. As if there are levels of skill in shark-petting, Motilium india. Motilium For Sale, They argued the whole way home ("You got to feed the goats more pieces of goat food. Motilium australia, It's not fair!"), argued right up until bedtime, Motilium coupon, 30mg Motilium, and woke up arguing the next day. And this continued for every day of the break, Motilium ebay. 10mg Motilium, By the end of the week, I was venting to anyone who would listen about how much my kids fought, 100mg Motilium, Motilium us, and several friends and relatives suggested that they were learning life skills such as conflict resolution and so on. I know this was meant to be reassuring, Motilium japan, Motilium overseas, but it left me more unsettled than ever. When in life do you successfully resolve a conflict by punching someone or pulling their hair until they cry, Motilium For Sale. Have you ever run tattling to your boss, out of breath in your desperate rush to blame a co-worker for starting a fight, before they can blame you. Who reaches their desired outcome in a negotiation by threatening to break all of someone's toys if they don't do what you want.
I fear the only life skills my children are developing lately are the ones that will serve them well if they are ever chosen to compete in the Hunger Games. Short of a ruthless televised death-match in a fictional dystopia, I see little use for the behaviors they've been honing. If this is how they "resolve" conflict, they are going to lead lonely, miserable lives.
Your advice, on parenting or on boarding schools, is most welcome here. I quake in fear at the thought of summer vacation.

Clonidine For Sale, Elliot is five today. Five. He woke up happy and sunshiny and excited about life and the two new packages of matchbox cars Siena gave him at breakfast, 50mg Clonidine. Everyone else in the family woke up with storm clouds over their heads, 30mg Clonidine, but Elliot managed to tune out all the grouchiness and played with his cars happily until we had to leave for school.
He's definitely a morning person, my little guy, Clonidine ebay, awake and ravenous at 6:00 a.m. every day (and has been since babyhood, only it was more like 5:15 then), Clonidine For Sale. Clonidine overseas, In a family where his sister resists going to bed every night, his dad stays up till 3:00 a.m. watching political debates on public television, Clonidine india, and I drag myself, 250mg Clonidine, grumbling, upstairs to bed around 11:00 every night wishing I could stay up later and not feel suicidal in the morning, Elliot is definitely on his own timetable, 500mg Clonidine. He's also the only member of our household who doesn't like chocolate (and I include the cat here, Clonidine japan, who is more than happy to lick the frosting off an unsupervised cupcake or a plate left on the table).
While I sometimes wonder how I possibly gave birth to an early riser who hates chocolate, in other ways, Clonidine us, he is definitely my baby. Clonidine For Sale, He loves poetry, and back rubs (both receiving and giving -- he gives the lightest, barely-touching-you little back rubs and then asks sweetly, "was that gentle?") and Star Wars. Clonidine australia, Like me, he would be happiest in a world without dogs, and with more time for art projects, 40mg Clonidine. While his eating habits have become increasingly picky, Clonidine mexico, I still hold out hope that he will remain more open-minded than his sister about foods with multiple ingredients that -- gasp. -- touch each other. He likes pasta with cream sauce and vegetables, 10mg Clonidine, he'll eat chili if it's not too spicy, 150mg Clonidine, and he adores miso soup. While he requested donut holes from Trader Joe's over cake or cupcakes for his birthday party, his all-time favorite dessert is the tres leches cake at First Course, which is made with lime zest and drizzled with a passionfruit coulis, Clonidine For Sale. Siena always orders a dish of plain vanilla ice cream, so you can see why all my foodie hopes are pinned on Elliot at this point, Clonidine usa.
He is different from his sister in other ways, Clonidine coupon, yet they are best friends. While Matt and I went into this whole two-kids thing knowing that they would -- duh -- be two different people, we are still caught off guard at times by how unique they are.* They both adore school and the Taekwondo class they've been taking three nights a week, Clonidine uk, but they bring vastly different energy levels and attention spans to their classes. Clonidine canada, Part of this is age, I'm sure, but part of it gives me anxious visions of Elliot bouncing spastically around a high school detention room while Matt and I bribe his teachers to give him passing grades, 200mg Clonidine. Clonidine For Sale, Then again, he loves doing homework, so much so that his preschool teacher has started making up extra assignments for him ("make a Lego monster and draw a picture of it").
The energy thing has been challenging this year, 1000mg Clonidine, as we've watched him go from the gentle back rub guy at home to the kid who gets overstimulated and starts karate-chopping his friends while lining up for snack time at preschool. We have lots of talks about behavior and impulse control (only we call it things like "making good choices") and he seems to be making progress in terms of reigning it in a bit. The Taekwondo class actually seems to help, 750mg Clonidine, especially in recent classes where Elliot has been paired with one or two other white belts to "train" each other. 20mg Clonidine, He loves coaching the other kids to kick higher, punch with the other arm, yell "ki-yap" as they kick, Clonidine craiglist, and so forth. Then they bow to each other to show thanks for training one another, and the sight of these little white-uniformed guys bowing respectfully makes my heart melt, Clonidine For Sale. Clonidine paypal, In general, Elliot makes my heart melt. He is sweet and cheerful most of the time, 100mg Clonidine, and he brings at least one notecard a day with a drawing of two stick figures, one with longer hair and one with shorter hair. Sometimes they are labeled "ELLIOT MAMA" and other times they contain some additional detail; we might be standing on a hill or in a field of grass. If this is what the last few months of four have been like, I have a good feeling about five. Clonidine For Sale, [gallery order="DESC"]
*I know you're not supposed to compare your kids, but, honestly, show me the parent who doesn't. How do you ignore obvious differences in two of the most important people in your life. As long as we're not putting too much judgment into the comparison, merely observing rather than saying, "Why can't you be more like _____?" I think we're okay. They're both amazing little people, and they both have things to work on. As we all do.

Buy Clonidine Over The Counter, Today was amazingly warm and spring-like, and -- in possibly related news -- Elliot is in love. Clonidine uk, First, with a girl from preschool, 500mg Clonidine. 150mg Clonidine, But also with Siena, it turns out, Clonidine canada. Clonidine coupon, This made for an interesting evening.
When I picked Elliot up today, Clonidine australia, 1000mg Clonidine, he had a picture from his sweetheart -- a heart with a monkey. (Monkeys are kind of her thing, buy Clonidine Over The Counter. When he went to her house for a play date, 10mg Clonidine, Clonidine paypal, she showed him her extensive collection of toy monkeys; it was pretty impressive.) Elliot had drawn her a picture as well -- of his family. Perhaps so she can become more familiar with her future in-laws, Clonidine craiglist. Clonidine us, Or perhaps just because that is the theme he's been exploring in all of his art lately, creating endless iterations of the four of us standing outside, 750mg Clonidine, 100mg Clonidine, sometimes with grass, sometimes with a bird overhead, 30mg Clonidine, Clonidine mexico, usually with the sun shining. Anyway, 20mg Clonidine, Clonidine india, I asked him about the picture she had made him, and -- honest to goodness -- he blushed, Clonidine ebay. Buy Clonidine Over The Counter, He said he "had to tell me something," and after much hemming and hawing he confessed that he was, in fact, in love with her. Clonidine japan, "I hope Cupid didn't shoot an arrow at me," he added [emphasis his], 40mg Clonidine. Clonidine overseas, "It sounds like he might have," I teased, 50mg Clonidine. Clonidine usa, "Well, now I'm really nervous."
"BECAUSE, 200mg Clonidine. 250mg Clonidine, Because I am in love and it makes me feel all nervous."
So that was all very sweet and lovely, but then the subject came up again at dinner. He told Siena he was in love with his preschool gal pal, and I inwardly cringed because this is just the sort of ammunition big sisters love to use to torment little brothers, buy Clonidine Over The Counter. Instead of taunting him, though, she gave him a hug and said, "that's GREAT, Buddy. I'm so happy for you!"
Of course, I felt ashamed for having doubted her, even in my head, but I deflected that shame by starting to tease her about whether she was in love with anyone. (I'm sure I picked that up in a parenting book somewhere.) Her answers were all indignant but smiling, making it clear that there was some object of her affection but she was not going to share any more about it at the dinner table. At this point, Elliot jumped back into the conversation.
"You know that I'm in love with someone else, too."
At which point he immediately started kissing her hand and arm, looking at her adoringly. Eventually, this got old for Siena and I had to separate them before the love-fest turned violent. I tried to have a conversation with Elliot about how siblings and girlfriends are not typically the same person, the family tree needs to have branches, etc., but I'm not sure it got through.
I blame the warm weather.

Where Can I Buy Motilium, WOW. It’s been a whole year. Sometime last winter, my life exploded and my free time all but disappeared. Motilium coupon, Free time that was not dedicated to watching TV, that is – somehow I have managed to squeeze in an embarrassing number of Bachelor/Bachelorette episodes around all the parenting, working, and trying to keep the house from completely falling apart. (My brain capacity is permanently diminished after all the Rose Ceremonies and “is s/he here for the right reasons?” discussions.) But pretty much everything besides work and bad TV fell by the wayside for a while, Motilium usa, including exercise, adequate sleep, and my beloved blog.
By now, I’m sure most readers have moved on to something with more recent and – let’s face it – more compelling content, Where Can I Buy Motilium. Motilium paypal, My last post was last February, and it was about sandwiches. To those who still care (hi, Andrea!), I apologize, 750mg Motilium.
While it's possible that a few people out there might have missed my overuse of parentheses and completely random topic selection, I know I was definitely missing my outlet for recording funny or exasperating family moments. I thought briefly about just being done with the blog, Motilium us, but lately I’ve been missing it more and more. Where Can I Buy Motilium, I write all the time for work, but I crave the first person, conversational, over-punctuated-to-my-heart’s-content blog writing. The fun writing. Time to try again.
Here’s a brief recap of the memorable events of 2011, bullet-point-style because this is like going running around the lake for the first time after a long winter on the couch: best to start slow, 20mg Motilium, and try not to hurt myself. Let’s hope my face doesn’t turn fuschia like it always does after that first run. Here goes:
- January: I set ambitious goals for my freelance projects on top of regular job hours and test the limits of never saying no to anything, leading to high stress, lack of sleep, and lack of blogging, among other issues, Where Can I Buy Motilium. Siena makes a sculpture for her school art show entitled: The Land of Cozy. Motilium overseas, The accompanying description explains that the Land of Cozy is like a giant comfy bed, where the girl can curl up with her stuffed animals while her father is taking care of her, because her mother is away at work. I cry at the elementary school upon reading this.
- February: our house is broken into and my beloved laptop is stolen, along with every other electronic device we own, 250mg Motilium. The children are devastated to lose the relatively new Wii, not so much because the device itself is gone, but because “all our records and scores and Miis are gone. FOREVER!”
- Where Can I Buy Motilium, March: ?. Motilium ebay, [Ed.: I don’t really remember March. Insurance claims from the robbery, work, more work, and it was cold a lot, Motilium india. I’m sure some other stuff happened, but I wasn’t blogging so it’s hard to recall exactly what.]
- April: We welcome a teaching intern from Chile into our home (through an international teaching exchange program sponsored by Siena’s school). She has never lived with a cat before and promptly develops hives and other allergy-related misery. We start looking for a new host family for her, Where Can I Buy Motilium. 30mg Motilium, The kids are thrilled to have her, then devastated when she has to leave sooner than planned.
- May: It snows at the annual May Day parade, usually one of my favorite Minneapolis events. Our teacher from Chile is not impressed with Minnesota. Neither am I, Motilium craiglist. We all contemplate moving. Where Can I Buy Motilium, The rest of the month is a whirl of school events as the year wraps up, along with work events, deadlines, more work, and trying to figure out what to do with the kids after school lets out for the summer. We win season tickets to the Minnesota Twins but are too busy to attend a game together until July.
- June: We head to South Dakota for two weeks, first staying with our friends Sara and Ryan in Sioux Falls, 150mg Motilium, then staying at a ranch resort for a giant reunion of Matt’s extended family, then traveling back with Matt’s parents in their House on Wheels. We visit Mount Rushmore, see buffalo, and go hiking ("forced marches or you’ll never see the iPad again" would be how the kids remember the hiking), 500mg Motilium. Siena rides a horse for the first time, and we stop at the home of Laura Ingalls Wilder in Walnut Grove on the way home, on my birthday.
- July: Matt and I escape briefly for two nights up north with friends, 50mg Motilium, Siena turns seven (seven!), Elliot continues to hone his lightsaber and ninja skills, and we head to Grand Marais for the second year in a row to paddle in the dragon boat races. I love everything about the dragon boat races.
- August: Siena goes to horse camp. Elliot takes swimming lessons and is so proud on the last day when he jumps into the pool unassisted, Where Can I Buy Motilium. We travel to San Diego for my cousin’s wedding, 200mg Motilium, and we tackle a litany of tedious house projects. I spend several gorgeous sunny days inside, painting trim a whiter shade of white and thinking the whole time that, Motilium uk, while Martha Stewart might approve of my prioritizing here, Mary Oliver probably would not. Bunk beds are purchased, Elliot’s room officially becomes “the kids’ room,” and we welcome our second international teaching intern, Motilium canada, this time from Barcelona.
- September: School is back in session, work is in high gear for both of us, and routines are gradually being settled into. 10mg Motilium, Mireia, our Spanish intern, quickly becomes part of the family. Where Can I Buy Motilium, We all spend three nights at a hotel while the windows are replaced in our house, and Matt and I celebrate ten (ten!) years of marriage.
- October: We go apple picking and procure Star Wars costumes for Halloween. Matt dresses up as a Rock Star Banana. Yes, Motilium japan, that's right. Our house is completely torn up as we have ceilings refinished, walls painted, 100mg Motilium, and the front steps replaced. We eat multiple meals on a picnic blanket in the basement while the kitchen is under construction, apologizing profusely to Mireia, who was probably not expecting this when she signed on to live with a host family (luckily, she was very patient and gracious about everything).
- November: I have a work event and a bunch of deadlines, 1000mg Motilium. We contemplate breaking up with our contractors because the work on our house does not look likely to finish anywhere close to on time, Where Can I Buy Motilium. We gets things put back together as much as we can in time to host Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday. Mireia helps us make Catalan food for appetizers; we begin our Thanksgiving feast with a Spanish omelet and Pa Amb Tomaquet (bread with tomato).
- December: Work slows down incrementally and I promptly respond to the reduced adrenaline rush by getting sick. 40mg Motilium, What I think is a cold turns out to be walking pneumonia, although the "walking" part is a bit of an exaggeration. I faint while trying to get breakfast one morning and spend the rest of that day shuffling in and out of various clinics until someone can see me without an appointment, then return home to sit on the couch with an inhaler for two weeks straight. Where Can I Buy Motilium, Christmas comes, and is completely magical. I never get tired of our traditions: family dinner and gifts (just our household) on the 23rd, Motilium mexico, or Christmas Eve-Eve, then homemade pizzas with my family on Christmas Eve, followed by Santa's arrival and then Christmas Day with Matt's family.
- January: We add another holiday tradition by celebrating Kings Day as they do in Spain. Motilium australia, Gifts from the three kings are hidden all over our house, with clues in Spanish leading the kids from one to the next. A few days later, Mireia moves to her next host family. We are all cry on the drive over to her new house. We enroll the kids in a Taekwondo class, Where Can I Buy Motilium. I make some New Year's resolutions and attempt to revisit routines that are neglected but important to me, such as yoga and this here blog. We’ll see how it goes.
My main feeling about 2011 is one of relief that it's over. It wasn't a horrible year -- in many ways it was a very good year -- but it definitely felt like the treadmill had sped up when I wasn't looking. I'm looking forward to a little more balance, and a lot more blog time, in 2012.

Discount Clonidine, Ice dams, water leaking into our cupboards, the Sisyphean chore of painting trim in the kids' rooms, and lots and lots of work. This past week, 200mg Clonidine, 50mg Clonidine, and frankly, January in general, 40mg Clonidine, 10mg Clonidine, can go fly a kite as far as I'm concerned. ("Fly a kite" being not exactly the phrase I might have used, Clonidine coupon, Clonidine us, out loud, on more than one recent occasion regarding what this winter is welcome to go do.)
Matt's birthday was the high point of the week, 250mg Clonidine, 1000mg Clonidine, but I spent 13 hours of it at work due to early and late meetings. (We went out the weekend before and on Friday night, Clonidine mexico, 150mg Clonidine, so it was still celebrated -- just not on the actual day.)
I also spent more time than usual this week working from home, which gave me the dubious luxury of all-day access to my own kitchen, 30mg Clonidine. Clonidine india, While it was nice not to be frantically attempting to pack some semblance of a normal lunch for work each day (past Work Lunch FAILS have included a large bowl of oatmeal with a small container of plain spinach on the side, and the day I just shoved half a loaf of cranberry bread in my lunch bag and called it a meal*), Clonidine paypal, Clonidine ebay, I ended up spending more "work time" than I probably should have on sandwich construction.
Still, it made me forget about the ice dams for a minute, Discount Clonidine.
- Morningstar vegetarian "bacon, Clonidine japan, Clonidine canada, " provolone cheese, spinach and tomato slices on an Everything bagel
- (Consumed not too long after Number 1, Clonidine uk, Clonidine overseas, as I was so pleased with my lunch sandwich that I decided to have another sandwich as a snack): Fake bacon, provolone, Clonidine australia, Clonidine craiglist, poached egg, spinach and tomato on thin slices of Italian white bread
- Cream cheese, Clonidine usa, 100mg Clonidine, tomato slices and pickles on an Everything bagel (I'm not pregnant, I swear, 750mg Clonidine, 20mg Clonidine, although I realize this sounds like a sitcom-style pregnancy craving)
- Poached egg over cream cheese, drizzled with Tapatio sauce, 500mg Clonidine, on the last Everything bagel (with extra sea salt)
- Scrambled egg, fake bacon, and cheese on two buttered toaster waffles (= awesome breakfast sandwich full of happiness, and calories)
Hmm. Lots of eggs, cream cheese, bagels. You can see the array of ingredients I was working with. I think Number 4 was my favorite. Discount Clonidine, I am planning to add hot sauce whenever possible to all future cream cheese bagels that cross my path. My advice to you is to do the same.
And that's the news from Lake Wobegon. I think it's time for a sandwich.
*My dad's family recipe for cranberry bread with orange zest and pecans is incredibly delicious. I was actually not that unhappy with myself for bringing half a loaf for lunch; however, after the fourth slice, even I was ready for something else.

The household total is up to six now, Clonidine craiglist. 20mg Clonidine, [For those of you reading who don't have kids between the ages of two and seven, a Zhu Zhu Pet is a furry chattering hamster that scoots around on little wheels.] Siena gave Elliot one (a long-coveted item since she had received one for her birthday in July), 10mg Clonidine, 100mg Clonidine, then Matt and I gave them each one. Then Santa gave them each ANOTHER one and Matt and I entertained ourselves with some jokes about "multiplying like hamsters" and so forth, Clonidine paypal. Clonidine japan, Anyway, what's awesome about having six Zhu Zhu Pets is not the constant chattering noise they make (that's not so awesome), Clonidine us, Clonidine india, but how the kids play with them. They don't just sit put them in the Zhu Zhu habitrail or hamster wheel or surfboard accessories....They like to put all six hamsters on the floor, turn them on so they're scooting around randomly, and then yell "AHH, Buy Clonidine No Prescription. THE ZHU ZHU PETS ARE ON FIRE, Clonidine uk. 500mg Clonidine, DON'T LET THEM TOUCH YOU OR YOU'LL GET ON FIIIIIRRRRE!!"
