I'm pretty sure they're not.

Both my kids were term, and just slightly over 6 lbs.

'We both lie silently still in the dead of the night - though we both lie close together, we feel miles apart inside - was it something I said or something I did, did my words not come out right - though I tried not to hurt you, though I tried, but I guess thats why they say.....'

I don't think your comment is stupid at all, LadyV.

I think a baby born at 35 weeks even at 6lbs or other good weight is considered a preemie, which is why I was worried my snark offended someone. Even though chances are pretty strong the baby will be fine, the lungs may not be fully developed.

My son was 5lbs something but was in there long enough to be fine, which was also my frame of reference for my snark.

If WileE is still saying 'slutty' you should be able to say 'nucking futz.'

so the repair shop SWEARS that my computer is fixed and it just needs a new battery - if i run it on the power cord only, it will be fine. of course, the battery isn`t covered by the extended warranty, so in the best interests of not paying $150, i am trying to find one on eBay! *sigh*

in the meantime, they have wiped the thing clean and reinstalled the operating system.

every stored password and cookie gone! *sigh*

at least all my documents, music and photos are on an external drive.

Pshhh. Who needs silly things like MATH?

I love math. More people need to be taught that it is awesome. I almost want to go teach elementary school, just to instill the awesomeness of math into little kids before everyone else tries to tell them it is hard or scary.

To make myself feels better about my eye infection, I treated myself to an extremely high carb lunch. Mushroom and goat cheese "quesadilla" (it was in quotations on the menu lol), roasted potatoes with rosemary, and some yellow rice. And I am washing it allllll down with moscato.

I really went the extra mile with the moscato, but I'm a little depressed that I'll most likely be wearing my glasses for graduation...sigh.

Stupid eye.

Sorry. I'm kinda grumpy today.
Oh totally. That is why I take Amazon.com reviews with a grain of salt. I just assume a good portion of them are written by the author's friends, family, co-workers, etc.

Call me petty or silly or whatever, but I still can't even bring myself to "Like" a post if this person has already liked it. and I def can't go into a topic if it was started by this person.

It's probably a good thing that I can't see likes on the phone.

Take care of your poor eye! They aren't easily replaced. I hope that your infection clears up soon. I know that eye problems can be painful.

High five, fellow math lover!
If I had felt I had it in me to be anywhere near qualified to be a teacher, I would have taught math because I loved it so much.
It is scary when people can't do the most basic of math-related tasks.

I'm still amazed that people can't figure out 15 or 20 percent tips in their head.
