fever baby

so fern has her first really high fever and of course it's on a sticky hot day. does this deter her from needing me to hold her all day? no freakin way. and now her fever won't go down so i'm waiting for the callback from the doc (and holding her of course. and typing one handed. who needscapital letters?) any ideas on how to help her? i gave her motrin and a cool bath, lots of fluids. next will be some tylenol i guess, but if anyone has those magic grandma remedies it would be much appreciated... by both of us. :/

Compost Pile needed

I was wondering if any of you have a substantial sized compost pile that I could contribute to. I raked the yard and have about 5 or 6 garbage bags full of stuff that I would hate to just throw away. It would be great to get rid of responsibly! Let me know and thank you!

mother nature's punch

So I know EVERY year that it isn't really spring yet, but EVERY year I truly believe that winter is finally over. Then it snows again and it feels as though it will never stop. Man I hate winter. I can't wait to sit on the deck that (e:enknot) and I have never spent any time on, since we moved in in mid October. It is a big chunk of the house we have yet to enjoy. Soon enough we will, I'm just feeling a bit impatient.

On the bright side, Mya got into Olmsted's gifted and talented program. She will start kindergarten in the fall. This also means that Fern will get to go to Olmsted too. This also means we never have to worry about moving out of the city. The suburbs just don't do it for me.

I on the other hand did not get into Buff State. I know what you're thinking, but yes, they do not in fact admit everyone. I am that one. My last two semesters at UB were really bad, the last because I was about to pop with Mya during finals, and the semester before I can't even recall why I did so badly. So I am going to try and retroactively withdraw from the last semester, and Buff State wants a letter as to why I did so poorly the semester before. I wish I knew exactly why so I didn't feel like I was bullshitting. I know I was very unhappy with the school (and with the person I was with and with the rat-infested apartment I was living in in the heights), but is that valid to them? I mean, at worst I'll go to ECC for a semester or two and then transfer, so it's not that bad. I guess I am just a little ego bruised. And I'm realizing that the old me keeps biting the current me on the ass. If there was any way to effectively keep kids out of trouble,I think that would be the way - Let them know they will pay for their mistakes much after they stop making them.
