Oh, the dentist - no help. Also saying TMJ and my OB said it was probably because I'm sleeping different - listing for the baby and whatnot. Anyway, the dentist told me to just buy a mouth guard and that should help. Oh, and I was only at my OB because I had my annual check up - which seriously - didn't they do ENOUGH checking over my pregnancy? But whatever...its done for another year.

From Nancy (my cousin)
1 pkg lemon Jell-O [the real stuff, not the instant]
3/4 cups hot water
1 pkg lemon cake mix
3/4 cups vegetable oil
1/4 lb lemonade [This made no sense to me at the store and it turned out that my cousin Nancy used frozen lemonade, but what we did worked just fine. I used powdered (which I use all the time to make lemonade) lemonade mix. I made a batch of lemonade (normally), then we took about 3/4 cup of it and added extra powder (about 3 tbsp) to make it stronger. We just drank the rest of the batch of lemonade - wouldn't want to waste.:)]
Mix and bake the cake at 300 for 35-40 minutes in buttered and floured pan [you can use a bundt pan or a regular cake pan - we did this in a 13 by 9 regular cake pan, while my cousin did the bundt pan. Since we changed the pan size, we started with the box's recommendation for our size and went from there.] Poke holes in the cake and then pour the lemonade on after its baked. You can serve and store at room temperature.

In other news, my mouth is still killing me (you know, since the doctor pretty much wrote me off). I made a dentist appointment - I really hope they can find something to put me out of my misery. I have been living on motrin and I hate doing that, but otherwise I'm in abject pain. At this point, a root canal sounds good because it means it is taken care of!
Oh, Adam is really starting to move. He can't crawl, but pushes himself forward - must hurt his face, but all he wants to do is MOVE. He hasn't figured out that he could roll places, though - that is probably coming. I want him to learn to sit up, but he'd rather just work on crawling!

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
Since I'm in the middle of checking in with all my classes, I'm going to use the textbook sitting next to me. It is actually from the course I'm prepping for next term - Western Civ II, Civilization in the West, Vol. C, 7th ed, by Kishlanksy, Geary, O'Brien. Now because this is a three volume series, they continue page numbers (which actually I find rather annoying, but anyway....), so what I did was go 123 pages from the start of this volume. The 6-8th sentences on that page (713) are:
But what occurred between March and May 1871 was not a proletarian revolution. Rather, it was a continuation of the state of siege that had held Paris through the fall and early winter months. Parisians were still at war.
I'm going to tag: Ramble on and on, Christine's Blog, April's Thoughts, The Educational Tour Marm, and Life's Little Moments.

Weather has been really good here, but today was colder. I've been having bad headaches - I think sinus, but medicine hasn't been that helpful and the doctors were useless. Just gave me pain medication and seemed to blow me off. Hopefully that means it will go away.

Adam is really into his rolling over and already working on trying to crawl. He has the leg strength, but not the arm strength. I actually want him to learn to sit up - that'll help me out! He hasn't quite figured out that if he rolls over a few times, he can go places - not really into him learning that! He's just growing and gaining every day!
My classes are keeping me really busy, but the weather is looking nicer here everyday. I can't wait for summer and I can work outside in the yard.
