DYK December
Sat, 12-01-2012 - 9:39am

DYK I cannot believe it’s already December?

DYK I got up early today and ran?

DYK I finally remembered to take my phone with me (I never do that) and I ran the MapMyWalk app while I was running?

DYK I finally know exactly how long my run is?

DYK from my driveway and back to my driveway it is 3.1 miles?

DYK I thought it was 2.9?

DYK I am getting ready to drop DD off at softball?

DYK then I’m taking her friend home and DS and I are headed to help my parents with their leaves?

DYK this will be the third time?

DYK they have a big yard with oak trees?

DYK that’s a PITA to take care of?

DYK that my mom seems to be doing just fine - hasn't fainted since Thanksgiving and her doctor (whom she talked to after the first time she fainted a few months ago) thinks it may be the sulfites in the wine that she is reacting too?

DYK the doc suggested switching to organic wine?

DYK my mom thought she would just not over-do it again, as she and dad frequently share a bottle with no ill affects?

DYK I told her she should still get her potassium levels checked?

DYK that when I told her that, she said that for years my Grandma was on magnesium/potassium supplement to help with leg cramps?

DYK I think that Sandy was on the right track for that, but I didn't mention my motivation for asking to my mom?

DYK know that she is skeptical of "woo-woo" stuff?

DYK I can't get into the PPWM thread 

DYK I was able to get in and actually post in it earlier

DYK I have to keep signing in even with the "keep me" box checked

DYK I have to keep going in and changing my thread options

DYK this is getting old

DYK like Cara I feel like we are going backwards instead of forward

DYK I'm glad Cara's Mom is doing ok

DYK I wonder if Cara believes in my "woo-woo" stuff - LOL!

DYK that there are 'woo-woo' things I definitely believe in, like Sandy's intuition?

DYK that I don't NOT believe in 'visitors', etc, but I am not an absolute, total believer, either. Know what I mean?

DYK that I should be making dinner, but I am so dang tired, I just want to sit on my butt at the computer.

DYK that we have a HS Band Booster meeting tonight, and I am totally not motivated to go?

DYK that I just want to stay at home and have a glass of wine, instead?

DYK that we missed last month, so we really need to go?

DYK that while I have definitely been in a Christmassy mood, it has been a "shop online and then curl up in front of the fire and admire the tree" sort of mood, not a "perform six times, take 80 middle schoolers on a field trip and attend two band concerts in the next three weeks"  kind of mood?

DYK I haven't seen PPWM in months?

DYK I still get Error 503 Guru Meditation?

DYK I wish the guru would stop contemplating his navel and get on with it?

DYK the PPWM thread is hit or miss with me

DYK I am glad I do not scare people off with some of my thoughts

DYK I do not broadcast a lot of "what I get"

DYK I am very careful who I tell "stuff" to

DYK some people might want to burn me at the "stake" - rofl

DYK I like Cara's Christmas spirit - glass of wine in front of the fireplace admiring her decorations

DYK that's my kind of Christmas spirit too

DYK I have to attend a Fair Housing and Affirmative Action workshop this morning

DYK I hope I don't fall asleep

DYK Webster contemplates his navel every morning when he goes out to do his business

DYK sometimes he contemplates longer than others

DYK I have gotten two gifts for John for Christmas

DYK both were purchased on line

DYK he better not open the boxes up if he gets home before me

DYK if he does he won't have any surprise under the tree unless it is me in a box

DYK I hate all the issues still going on?

DYK I am going to start a thread about issues so I can make sure they are reported?

DYK I want everyone to list issues they are having there?

DYK I do know they are aware and working on the jumping sigs?

DYK that Cara is right about my color in posts? I do use Word. I am still having huge issues with hitting "Post" and I get a "website cannot be found" screen. Sometimes if I copy my initial paste I can recover it with paste, but sometimes it isn't there. So I get the fun of using Word. A lot.

DYK I am done with overtime for another week?

DYK my feet are oh, so grateful?

DYK I had a great, relaxing night last night?

DYK Jeff and I watched the season finale of Sons of Anarchy and then there was a Duck Dynasty marathon on so we watched that?

DYK they finished with a Christmas special?

DYK that show cracks me up?

DYK Jeff said I met some of them years ago at that show (S.H.O.T. –Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade) we went to in Vegas?

DYK Jeff is going to SHOT again this year?

DYK I am not?

DYK where he works part time in a gun store now, they are sending him; paying his flight, hotel, and a food stipend?

DYK only paying for my flight and food I still don’t have the money?

DYK my mom and I have reservations to go to Ft. Myers this spring break?

DYK it is a lot further south so it’s more expensive than where we have been going?

DYK Jeff and I are also set to use our Delta Frequent Flyer miles for a round trip ticket each for a Key West trip this summer?  That’s their off-season so rooms are very reasonable.   The room we are looking at has a small kitchenette so we can cook in some to save money.

DYK I’d love to slide Vegas in there too, but unless Jeff pays the whole thing, it’s not in my budget?

DYK I need to get moving towards work?

DYK I wish they would fix all the kinks already. grrrrr

DYK that I have to leave for work soon...

DYK Snoopy and Tessa wont be too impressed that they have to sleep in the living room!

DYK that AF is on her way.... and I drank a cup of that fertility tea... and I did some research online and I found out that one of the ingredients in it, ( vitex) shouldnt be mixed with clomid...( they cancel each other out) Crap, hope that doesnt screw me up!!!  I start the clomid in a few days...

DYK I called my health insurance and its not covered.... so I need some crossed fingers and positive thoughts that this works on the first go! ( its $7 a pill, and I need 10 pills!)

DYK I couldn't get on here yesterday without a lot of hassel

DYK I will post my "issues" in the other thread

DYK the list is LONG

DYK this is getting old

DYK if I took this long to fix a problem where I worked I would probably be told my services were no longer required and they would walk me to the door

DYK it is Friday

DYK that makes me happy

DYK I have an early morning appointment out of the office today

DYK I need to get going soon

DYK I would rather stay home and sit on the coach all day
