I'm going to have to start using a periscope to see the back of my top shelves in the kitchen. #shortgirlproblems

I have a step stool. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I need at least a 2-step step stool. Even then it'd be hard! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I have a step stool with 2 steps, but the periscope would come in handy for the moments when I just want to know what's up there - I don't necessarily want to get out the stool, climb up and look. - Corinne L
My husband just gets me to do it for him. (He's 5' 2" and I'm 5' 6") - April Russo

TiVo Mega is a 24 TB DVR that can record 3 years of TV shows | Digital Trends - http://www.digitaltrends.com/home-th...
TiVo Mega is a 24 TB DVR that can record 3 years of TV shows | Digital Trends
"TiVo is announcing the TiVo Mega, quite literally its biggest product yet. The 24 terabyte server-like appliance can record more than 26,000 hours (or about three years’ worth) of SD TV shows, or 4,000 hours of HD content before any deleting is necessary. In other words, it’s a DVR hoarder’s dream." - Cristo from Bookmarklet
Yes, but will it have a pause buffer longer than 30 minutes? - Cristo
Will it have a screensaver? :) - Cristo
If you already have a rack for your A/V gear in your ski lodge retreat that hooks up to your 150-inch projector with your 9.2 audio system in a dedicated theater room, then you'll definitely want this. - Eric - Poppa Large
Wherever will we put it? - Mary Carmen
Well, I don't have a ski lodge or 150-inch projector, but I do have a rack. :) - Cristo
The bigger problem is that there isn't that much on TV I want to watch, and for the shows I do want to watch (mostly sports), TiVo isn't that good about figuring out how to record them all (and how to keep recording when there's a rain delay). - Cristo
It's surprising that it's been 15 years since TiVo introduced automatic recording & thumbs up/down, yet they haven't really improved (as far as I've experienced) the quality of the automatic recording. This in an age of machine learning and big data. - Cristo
I've got two TiVo HD XLs and I only really use/watch a fraction of the available storage. Of course, this isn't just a problem with TiVo—it's a problem with cable. So many channels of complete and utter crap that can't be unbundled from your monthly plan. I'm not going to weep when cable suffers the same diminishing subscriber base as newspapers in the future. - Cristo
Idea: crowdsourcing realtime TV data (I should patent this idea just as I should have patented delayed TV). 1) For example, you could automatically record breaking news, and TiVo viewers could signal when it occurs. You could be notified that TiVo was recording a breaking story. 2) When there's a rain delay or other unscheduled live delay, users could advise the TiVo cloud that the... more... - Cristo
Waze for TV. - Eric - Poppa Large

I don't know how to keep going right now.
I'm ok but I'm scared. Not going to hurt myself, don't worry please. Just need to let this out somewhere. - Lo
((hugs)) If you need something, please let me know, Lo. Peace to you. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Well it's hard not to worry. So if you keep trying I'll try not to worry. - MoTO: Team Marina from Android

*hugs* You are strong and amazing, even when you don't feel it. And if you need some helping hands, I've got 2. :) - Heather
(((Lo))) How're you doing? - Anne Bouey
One breath, one step, one day at a time. Repeat as necessary. It won't make it better, it just gives you something else to focus on, when everything else is too overwhelming. *hugs* - Bette Cooper
I was just thinking I was finding my way out of this long depression/trying to figure things out period and after 9 months of unemployment I had a lead on a job handling desserts for a new restaurant. Husband started new job with Americorps which is a great fit for him, but doesn't make much money. I've been trying to use my difficult secondary relationship as a venue to improve my mood... more... - Lo from Android
Last week I had some really bad fights with secondary, struggling that even trying to use every tool in my box, and some new ones, but it's still going badly. I send him an email asking that he actually attend couples therapy with me, and went to the park to swing for a while. Healthy coping skills & stuff. - Lo from Android
I don't know how but I fell off the swing, broke my left arm and wrist and fractured four vertebrae. I'm in a brace for three months. probably can't do the restaurant job. Don't know how long before I will be able to earn money. I don't even know if I'll be able to dance again. The pain is unreal. My husband is stresses caring for me and afraid he will have to quit his job. I cried most... more... - Lo from Android
I am sure i will get through this and it'll be funny someday, but I haven't felt this relentlessly like dying since I was 23 and completely out of it. - Lo from Android
It's hard because the feelings are much stronger now, but the coping skills I have been learning are sometimes useless. I can't take deep breaths or go running, really get any exercise at all, so calming down takes a fucking hour. I can't share my feelings as freely with husband for fear of breaking his spirit. And idiot boyfriend is being extea-suppprtive, but still kinda clueless,... more... - Lo from Android
And I'm being extra bitchy thanks to pain. I look in the mirror and I'm like JUST STOP YOU ASSHOLE. - Lo from Android
For some reason I haven't felt comfortable talking about this. I haven't even told my parents. So it is big for me to share. Thanks, guys.I totally went on for a while, but I know you guys will be nice about it. I really appreciate that. - Lo from Android
One of my favorite fb friends really hurt my feelings yesterday so I suspended my account, as I'm too sensitive right now and I make mistakes typing with one hand and painkillers... But I'm glad, it reminded me to come here. Still feels safe, after all this time. - Lo from Android
Yikes. I'm sorry you were injured! Are you still in Madison? I imagine you already know your resources but just in case: http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html... http://host.madison.com/news... Was the original work taken care of in... more... - Spidra Webster
Thanks, Spidra. I have no idea what I'm doing actually, just figuring out what to do and what I need. The ER were like, okay, you're cool, go home, take some advil, put some ice on that wrist if it hurts. My stoicism in crises often misleads doctors, they weren't even going to take x-rays of my spine initially and were stunned over the course of the evening as they discovered each... more... - Lo from Android
Next time you see a doc, bring the form for a disability placard. You can get a temporary one and you have as much reason to need one as someone who's got a leg in a cast. I can imagine that it affects your stamina and how far you can walk. If you get it, it can help a little financially with paying for any meters. Even if you don't own a car, the placard is assigned to you. That is, you can use it with any car you're being ferried in. http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/drivers... - Spidra Webster
If your household income qualifies, definitely apply for any and all help you can get with food, utilities and things that may not be healthcare. If you can get help with overall expenses, it may help the healthcare costs cut less deeply. http://www.benefits.gov/benefit... (It's depressing to me how many of these programs are for only for mothers. It's like if you don't breed, you don't matter. But try to ignore that and use what you can. Like low income utility assistance.) - Spidra Webster
Sorry to be responding in a "fixit" way if you just wanted to vent. I do really get how depressing it is to be in pain all the time. - Spidra Webster
That is a lot for anyone to take in Lo, so far I haven't heard you express any feeling that isn't completely understandable under those circumstances. I don't have any magic answers for you but hope if you just hang in there especially through the physical healing some peace will come. - Steve C Team Marina
thanks folks :) - Lo from Android
*hugs* That is a seriously sucky string of events. Writing helps me get through emotions that I feel like I can't talk to people about. Sometimes I write like I'm talking to someone I'm having trouble communicating with or make up a character to be my avatar and put them in dire straights so I can get a kind of relief from what I'm going through. I know you said you're typing one handed, you could scribble it out in pencil? Good luck with the next appointments and if you need more venting, go right ahead! - Heather
Heather reminded me that Dragon makes speech recognition apps which are free or cheaper than the desktop equivalents. http://www.nuancemobilelife.com/apps... Best to download those and practice with them so you can not do a lot of one-handed typing. Innocent one-handed typing... - Spidra Webster
Thanks for the update, Lo. We're here to listen as much as you need. - Anne Bouey
Thanks for sharing, Lo. Hugging you from here...and, like Anne said, we're here to listen whenever, doll. - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
*gentle hugs* We're here for you when you need to set some of that stress down. I hope you heal quickly and completely. - vicster: full-bodied
Thanks guys. I cannot enjoy real hugs or snuggles for some time, so I am taking all the ehugs I can get :P - Lo

Thanks to a FB post by our very own Mary Carmen, I discovered that a blogger I knew & loved in my early years of blogging is still writing - and has written 2 books!
Ooo, which post? - Mary Carmen
The Disney princess one from Wide Lawns. I had dinner with Victoria & her husband nearly 10 years ago when they visited CA. Back in her early years of blogging she wrote the funniest stuff about working in the HOA office of a upscale south Florida neighborhood. - Corinne L
Very cool. I thought her post about the first day of school 1970s vs 2014 was hilarious. - Mary Carmen
God bless WordPress archives & search tools that work! Here's the post I wrote about meeting her:http://www.girlwithmoxie.com/2006... - Corinne L

Everyone is fine. Despite what the photos show, the house didn't flip over! Pics just showed up sideways. :) - Anne Bouey from iPhone
When I saw the epicenter, I wondered if you guys were unscathed. Glad to hear. - Anika

I didn't think it was that big! It woke us up, but I was thinking it was in the 4.x range. I'm glad you are okay and hope that, in the daylight, the damage isn't worse. - vicster: full-bodied

I was going to give Stephen Mack a pass on the whole "celebrity deaths come in threes" because I figured Robin Williams was big enough to count for three. But now with Lauren Bacall, I'm not so sure.
Don't mess with me, Johns. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Start a 48 hour clock and we'll see. - Brian Johns
Mack speaks the truth. Always in threes. - Mary Carmen
Does the nascar driver killed over the weekend count as #1? I don't want to hear of another celeb death... - Lola Bean (Penguin)
Ooh - good idea. If we don't have anything better to go with by Thursday night we'll go with him and call it a triad. - Brian Johns
I stand by my previous posts debunking the "celebrity deaths come in threes" superstition. http://www.zeigen.com/blog... - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Does Philip Seymour Hoffman not count? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
oh my god. - Laura Norvig
The fact you can't name the NASCAR killer means he doesn't count. GL to all celebs. - Louis Gray
According to my mom, Ed Nelson from Peyton Place & The Twilight Zone is #3. - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
If Thursday night (an arbitrary deadline) comes and goes and nobody else (arbitrarily) famous enough dies then I will consider that scientific proof that the "celebrities die in threes" thing is a myth. I may be willing to join the “Celebrity deaths come in 1.7s” camp based on this very scientific data. - Brian Johns
Followup and Conclusion: After an extensive period of data collection and analysis over the last 4 days, I have changed my mind and joined Stephen's 1.7 bandwagon. Basically, I picked Robin Williams as a test and I haven't seen two other similarly noteworthy celebrities die so I'm going to generalize that experience over the entire realm of possibility and call it a scientific fact.

Why do strangers feel the need to touch my child? It seems so impolite.
How about you ? You dont like touch cute babies or kiss them ? - alireza6211 from iPhone
Not a stranger's baby. And I always ask first. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
There are certain things you shouldn't touch without permission, and pretty much anyone's body is included in that, as far as I'm concerned. A person's hair, a baby...just nope. No touchy. - Laura
Yeah. I don't need Germy McGerm Germ touchin my baby. - royce
i'm always surprised by the people who think they can touch my niece when we're out. - ~Courtney F
I consider small children to be drool infested germ carriers. I learned this at a Christmas event with 30 toddlers standing in front of our seats touching the railings. Fingers were either in their nose or mouth and then on the railing. I will touch no child after seeing this, nor touch railings or carts without a Purell wipe. - Janet from FFHound!
When I worked at the Health Sciences Library in NY, the pathology students used to swab and culture the escalator rails. I will never put my hand on one again. - Mary Carmen
I'm with Laura - I'll never get people who just gotta touch other people's kids, bellies, hair without permission. Partially because we're all disease vectors (nobody needs me taking or sharing whatever we may have,) but also it is just rude :/ - Jennifer Dittrich
I was never that comfortable with strangers deliberately standing too close to my child, never mind invading her personal space even more by touching her. And go out of your way to touch any part of me without warning, and you might be reflexively slapped, even if I know you. - April Russo
I didn't like it when strangers wanted to touch my dog. Start invading my personal space (which would include a baby if I had one), and I get a little antsy. And by antsy I mean stabbity... - Bette Cooper
There is a Mexican superstition that states that if you compliment a baby without touching them, you'll give them the 'ojo' (evil eye). Strangers touched my babies all the freaking time. - Jenny H. from Android
In Italy (at least the Tuscany region) all babies and toddlers are fair game :) - Eivind from Android
I don't get how asking permission doesn't even occur to some folx. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Before leaving the NICU, the docs & nurses gave me all kinds of lessons about baby care, and had me so paranoid, to this day I don't hold or kiss babies under a year, if I don't have to. Even my loved ones, the most I'll do is hold their baby's foot & wiggle it. We gotta protect em all, even from us. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I was just reading an article about how important it is to teach kids about bodily autonomy and consent, both for their own bodies and others. I think it's appalling that people think they can touch children at will, without asking permission. And no, I never touch children without asking a parent, and I'm trying to remember to always ask children, too, in whatever way is appropriate for their age. - Laura Krier
I say we bomb Italy. - Eivind from Android

Another observation from today: I can't believe how many people can't spell the word "ancestry" when I'm asked to give my address.
What is that ? - alireza6211 from iPhone
The name of my street. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
So I can spell It now Mary ! , A,N,C,E,C,T,R,Y :D - alireza6211
"It's like 'incest', only starting with 'a' and ending with a 'try' :) - Ken Gidley
Sorry, too much GoT lately... - Ken Gidley

lololol..Ken...lol - Mary Carmen
Actually I cant believe how so many americans cannot spell their own words... - Monaca di V.le Monza from BuddyFeed
I could spell it ... right up until you asked me too, then probably not so much :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I feel the same way about my street: Medallion. But what's even more surprising is that some people didn't know how to spell the name of my last street: Broadway. Seriously. - Laura Krier
The first house we bid on was on Susquehanna Ct. I'm SOOOOOO glad we didn't get that house! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I live near the Susquehanna, it is hellish hard to spell. And the Schuylkill expressway or river is the same for me! - Janet
Susquehanna is such a pretty word, but yeah, it's a tough one to spell. Same with Shenandoah. - Corinne L

Leaning tower of cake. I am so, so bummed about it even though some of it was out of my control (too damn hot in the venue, table / floor sloped to the wall, and quite frankly it was a poor idea). But here it is, and it's done and I think I'm retiring from making wedding cakes for friends ... End rant.

It looks great to me! - Marina's Godmother :-)
Too early to be drinking, Helen! Kidding, you are too kind, and I thank you. It was borderline disaster and I'd like to say I'm over it, but clearly I'm not... - Shannon - GlassMistress
I think it looks fantastic! - Anne Bouey
The temperature and the floor were out of your control, don't beat yourself up over it. I think the cake looks great! - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Take the picture from the "peacock" side, problem disappears. Also, slice and eat the cake. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
^^ was hoping for that but damned if they didn't put the cake in front of a big ass mirror! Hah! I'd say I couldn't catch a break but it didn't fall over so there's that :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Mmm, looks great. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Honestly, it looks really good. You could even argue that any slight lean adds to the peacock effect. Did rhe bride like it? - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Honestly I have no clue if the bride was happy or not. Part of the cake's problem was it was a poor concept. I did exactly as she asked knowing full well it was a bad plan. There are six layers of cake in rainbow colors in each tier. It is crazy heavy from all the frosting. I'm suspicious that the lean is due to one of the wooden dowels inside either broke or forced its way through the... more... - Shannon - GlassMistress
If someone made my wedding cake for me and it like looked one tenth as awesome as that one, I'd be happy, proud of my talented friend and very grateful. Its beautiful. - Mary Carmen
Looks lovely and I'm sure it tasted delicious!! - Sepi ⌘ سپی
What! It looks amazing! You did really well. And take it up as a learning experience - you'll get even better over time! I would be delighted to have this at my wedding. It's really lovely. You done good. - Miriella
I can tell you exactly what the problem was - when you make tiered cakes, you use plastic cake plates under each tier, not cardboard. The cardboard is for single tier only and is not meant to hold weight or pressure from your dowels. The plates have post holes that your dowels go into to keep them from slipping as well. There are also specific dowels you will want to use (not sure if... more... - Hookuh Tinypants
Yes to everything you said. I've used wooden dowels and cardboard on the 30 or so cakes I've done over the years with no problem. Guess there had to be a first, huh? I only do one to three cakes a year so I dont get much practice and it is a practice kind of thing. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I use cardboard and dowels, too, without a problem. However, when you stack a cake 3 tiers and over, I've learned it's necessary to put a long center dowel through the entire cake, boards included. Poke a hole in each separator board, then sharpen the dowel and hammer it down through the entire cake so that it sits in the middle of every tier. Some people use food grade PVC pipe as the... more... - Trish R
Trish. Its there ... even had to go to Home Depot to get it. I wasnt there for the 'autopsy' so I dont know where it failed, just guessing it has to be with the supports somewhere since the tiers were level when I started out. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I bet the supports shifted as the cake got softer when the room warmed up. Cake can come apart between the dowels and nothing prevents that from happening. - Trish R
Considered that - and leaning that direction myself, pun intended - hah! The extra layers and icing made for one heavy cake and I'm figuring I just didnt account for that weight when I assembled. The plastic rods would have been better and I might have avoided the whole thing. Hindsight ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress

New cal-king bed, BOOYAH!
The only trouble with a Cal-king bed (we've owned them for decades) is that your choice of sheets &c. can be somewhat limited, especially from places like LLBean, who've never heard of Cal-king. - Walt Crawford
Target has awesome sheets. The high performance cotton and the organic cotton are wonderful. - Mary Carmen

Question for current or previous owner/operators of small human beings: How much poopin' is too much poopin'? The boy likes to deliver one to two four squirt diapers a day of breast milk which you know leaves a small brown lake of probably 4 ounces each time. The books all say they may go through a period of no pooping. But nothing on regularity.
Yes we'd see pediatrician if thought there was a problem I'm just asking. - Steve C Team Marina
You can call your pediatrician to ask over the phone though. Or even talk to a nurse in the office. I do it all the time! Sorry I can't answer the question though. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
That's about what M does too. Sometimes it's every diaper change, like 4 in a row a day. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Ours were all prodigious poopers, and 4 +/- 2 per day was normal for them. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Great thanks peeps I'll let the wifey know. And I always forget Zulema we can call pediatrician with our silly questions - Steve C Team Marina
Sounds pretty normal to me. Gross, but normal. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Yup. Poopin' is wildly variable, in my experience -- for a few months, when really exclusively breastfed, she pooped all the poops all the time. Now, when she's 50/50 with formula, she poops every few days (in massive quantities!). Baby poop is a mystery. - Jenica
It has always amazed me how much can come out of someone so small. - GRANDMAFORSCARLETT
Just wait till you get to solids.....I have never in my life seen anything so small produce so much. - Mary Carmen
mine also pooped that much or more. what a mess. eta: what mc says about solids. ms 2 produces more than my dog who is 90lbs - Christina Pikas
oh, and as long as no signs of dehydration and there's plenty of weight gain, sky's the limit, imo. but of course your pediatrician would be happy to talk to you about it or if your insurance has a nurse line - Christina Pikas

Major moving stuff and unpacking happening. This is a great thing as this means it will now not happen all at once. Kitchen almost completely set up. My closet is done. Getting bathroom done.
Baby's closet unpacked. The men are setting up their nerd cave. Furniture gets moved Saturday. I start shopping next week for a dining set for the EIK and for new couches and other odds and ends. - Mary Carmen from iPhone

Admitting defeat of de feet. Coming soon: massive sale-slash-giveaway of beautiful shoes that the rheumatoid & spondylitis make it impossible to wear. I'm keeping the Sanitas, Danskos, and sneakers.

"Take the wire out of your mouth!" - Mary Carmen
"We do not eat cat food." - Mary Carmen
"Please don't empty the water bowl." - Mary Carmen
"Leave the cat alone." - Mary Carmen
"Can you get out of there by yourself?" - Mary Carmen
"Stay away from the oven!" - Mary Carmen
"Don't chew on my shoe, it's dirty!" - Mary Carmen
"Where did you come from?" - Mary Carmen
"Yes, you spit up. Please stop sitting in it." - Mary Carmen
"You can't have that." - Mary Carmen
I think this answers your previous question. - Christa
"You can't have that." - Mary Carmen
"You can't have that." - Mary Carmen

Lemme preface I plan to BF exclusively. But we live in a modern age and I also plan to avail myself of modern things. In this photo Every Single Type of formula has soy in it. WTF is that about.

While I have no proof #tinyhuman will be allergic to soy at all I think it'd be prudent to treat her as such until proven otherwise. I get reactions from lotions, hair care, etc that have soy in them and I'm gonna handle this formula and definitely get puked on... Ugh! Come'on 21st century! Not everything needs soy in it. - Lnorigb from FFHound!
Ah, shoot. My friend did research on this, let me see if I can find the brand... Holle. It's not from the US, but you can have it shipped here. They do a soy-free infant formula: http://www.littleorganics.com.au/product... - Jennifer Dittrich
Yes, Little Organics sells it. Peaceful Planet also sells soy-free formula, but I think it is toddler formula. You could try goat's milk formula. - Mary Carmen
Damn Gina!! you two rock! Thanks. I'm super concerned about time in the hospital, cos those bishes, love covering their asses. I'm toying with the idea of bringing some formula with us to deliver, so the hospital stays happy and I stay worry free. - Lnorigb

I have no idea how I did this when I was 7 months pregnant. I am already so over packing and wanna just nap.

Your in-laws provided greater motivation. - Holly's favorite Anna from Android
