Q&E Babble
Fri, 12-21-2012 - 7:34am

Okay, I give.   I am doing it.   I miss PPWM too much.

I want to babble.   I think you all want to babble.  So let’s babble here and then go back to PPWM when they finally get us fixed.   I know, it’s discouraging now, but I am too optimistic for my own good.   I do think iVillage will get this mess fixed.   One day. 

For those not on FB, Shelly is monitoring Waylon, debating on a trip to Pitt.   He ran a fever all day yesterday and most of the night.   At her last check in, he’s down to 99.   She’s calling the coordinator this morning.

I had my work party last night.   I took a platter of Jalapeno Cheese Grits.   I have never had 6 people ask me for a recipe before.   I heard they were, “on point” and “ready.”  I love it when I bring the most popular dish.   There wasn’t a scrap left.  

Off to get dressed for work.   As of 3:00 today I am done until January 2nd.   And then I can start counting down for my spring break beach trip.

Happy Mother's Day ladies! 

Went to church, DH made breakfast, tried to nap but the girls were too loud, and the girls had a "party" for me.  DH and Brooks went and got me a hanging flower basket yesterday while I was gone.  Yellow daisies.  Went to grandma's, moms, and MIL's to deliver tulips.  I like getting something they can actually plant and have come up every year.  Mom has a side of the garage that is "Susan's Side" and that's where all the flowers go.  Her dafodil's from last year bloomed this year.  They were pretty. 

I have a "Tracy" week this week.  Something to do every night.  Is this week over yet?  lol

Tracy ~That sounds like a really good cake!!! I might have to try it!

I'm here this monrning. Looks like it is going to be apretty day around here. Sun is shining,might be a little chilly, but it is pretty out there.  Good day to get some Mother-Son pictures!!!  Out for Chineese dinner later this afternoon.

I have been to a couple Clevelnad Indian's games before Tracy, and I LOVE watching it live like that. Not to big on TV though.

Well, the dryer stopped need to go fold laundry!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

The game was great, Shelly.   I'm ready to go back to another one.

Lazy day here, finally.   This is the first Mother's Day since my divorce where I didn't have to argue with the kid's dad over time.   Every year in the past he has argued that since it's Mother's Day the kids need to be with him so he could take them to go visit his mother.   Not that the holiday means a squatting thing to me, but it's Mother's Day therefore I think the kids should be with their mother.   This year he was like his theory in the past never existed.   He just sort of said they'd be with me all day.

So, that leaves a fun filled day of laundry, vacuuming, mopping, and other assorted cleaning ahead of us.   My dad is picking up KFC for supper.   I love that idea.   I am making a layered strawberry ice cream cake for dessert.   My mom loves that cake.   I make a white layer cake.   I whip up real whipped cream.   When the cake is cool I half-melt strawberrry ice cream and layer the cake, ice cream, layer of whipped cream and repeat.   Then you ice the whole thing with the whipped cream.   Freeze.   It's wonderful. 

The rain seems to finally be over here.  Now, it just needs to warm up.

Hello ladies!!!

Happy Saturday afternoon.  Was up at 7:00 got Jeffrey ready to go to the stock sale with his dad (ugggg)  then Waylon and I went to town and did some grocery shopping. Home and just relaxed with Philip. The 3 of us went to the bedroom and just laid around. I was looking at a new beading book, Waylon was on the iPad and P was going back and forth between us LOL It was nice!

Now we have dinner on the grill and just waiting for my Jeffrey to get home!!! I always panic when S takes him, I am so afraid that one time he is just gonna RUN. He is just crazy enough to do it to hurt me.

Daisy ~ Hope it is just a cyst the doctor found.

Renee ~ WOW all 4 teeth at once?! Brave girl!!!

Tracy ~ How was the game????

I think school here doesn't go out until like June 3rd or something like that Ugggggggggg

Ok, I'm off to flip the pork chops on the grill!Enjoy your evening!

Good morning. I am here. I slept in a little since we didn't get home from the Reds game until 1:00. It's still wet and disgusting here. My grass is soon to be knee level but I can't mow it. It's always raining. DD's travel team has already canceled their practice today. I hope DS's game is still on.

I am getting ready to go to the grocery, come home and start cleaning.

Yes, that's how I have to respond to or read this thread too. But it's totally worth it to me. There are too many steps, it's cumbersome, and inconvenient, but if that's what I have to do to keep living in our Q&E world then I'll keep doing it. And my hat is off to all of you others that just keep on plugging away making this laughable software work.

Sounds for sure like you are smart for not believing anything he says!  It sounds like he can't even keep them straight anymore!  SO glad you are away from that jackass!

I was wondering how y'all read this thread?   I am going nuts shuffling through it every time I want to check!  It opens up to the very first page so I have to choose the LAST page and then I have to scroll down the thread until I find the last post I have read.  It gets really time consuminmg so a lot of times I just do not come here while at work and I'll check at home... but I got to wondering if y'all have to do that too?

So, Renee, Maggie had her wisdom teeth pulled at U of M in Ann Arbor?  Or am I losing it?

Better get back to work... it's raining cats & dogs outside but I love it!  Supposed to cool off this week-end a lot.  Was wishing we could go outside tomorrow night but it doesn't look good at all.  Hope everyone has a great Friday!
