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.

Hello Shelly!  Glad to have you back with us!  Glad Waylon's check-up went well.  If all he has to do is eat this time that's a good thing!  Also happy to hear he is eating on his own and does not need a feeding tube.  That has got to make him feel better too.  Glad to hear at least one of the dads is showing up for some male influence in your household.  Just as long as he behaves himself right?

Daisy that is too funny about poor Presley's head.  Hope you explained to Luke he is not licensed to be a tattoo artist just yet.

Getting ready to head out for my group exercise classes this morning then home to shower and then back up to the hospital I go to see my Dad.  Hopefully he will get out of there tomorrow.  I can tell he is feeling better because he is getting antsy and a bit grumpy and just wants out of the place.  Poor guy.

OMG, so frustrated.   This is about the 6th time I have exited the site and come back in.  I can't reply to a post.   It did this to me some yesterday but I could refresh over and over and over and it would eventually work.   Not today.   I have been trying to post for about 30 minutes now.  I do NOT have the time for this.

When I hit reply I get this screen.   Anyone else getting the same thing?

So, I forgot most of what I was going to say. 

Off to get in a Jillian Michaels workout before church.

Good news on Waylon =)..  I heard instant breakfast is really good for you and I know it has calories- I started drinking it a few years back and gained weight...  Hope he drinks it !

Too funny on the tatto remark Sandy ..

Hope your dad gets sprung soon- and you enjoy your day with him!

Tracy sounds like you got a good amount of things for RA to wear- would have been nice to know she had to have them before Christmas!

I was coming here yesterday to report awesome news.. but things changed yesterday =(,,

Maggie ... IS GETTING HER licence back !!!It will be restricted for a year and she will have to have a thing in her car that she will have to blow into before her car will start. If she has been drinking her car will not start. And after a year they wil reevaluate. She will be able to drive to work, dr apts, day care and any meetings she goes to. The lawyer was very surprised- he said in all his years this is only the 2nd person that they have told on the spot.  WOW! We are all pretty happy =)..

Mrs. Johnson was doing good- she sat up and wanted to sit in her chair, she was talking - only one word things- but talking and her eyes were open yesterday morning- but she went downhill by the end of the day. They called in hospice and she is on morphine. I went up last night and came home around 1am. My sister went home around 4.  She is coming back today.

I have Mollys kids- she is working - actually at the nursing home Mrs. J is in! But not on the same floor. She started there last week. She likes it, and she told the other place she could come back there too. Crazy girl.

OH and my neice that had the baby in the ambulence- her girls are 19 month, and almost 5 months- she is due September 5th. ! I knew she wanted kids ...

Well I need to get moving-

Happy Sunday ALL !!

And it took me so long to post this cuz I made breakfast, ate and made the bed ! Now I see Tracys post- I havent had any trouble.. yet=)..  Just still can't get a siggy in- changed my email and still says my email is taken (my old one)..

Good Morning ladies! guess I didnt sleep very well last night, because Im still tired today lol. I need to wash the dishes but dont feel like it lol. Only doing 1 load of laundry today.... my work stuff...

Oh! at work in the meat department they were selling frozen turduckens for close to $100 each! Yikes! Our in store chef cooked one up before christmas and I got to try a sample... anyway... they didnt sell because it was so expensive.... one lady came through my checkout yesterday, and they were marked down to $25ish... so after work I had a look, and there was 1 left!!! DH wanted it lol. so I have a 12 ish lb bird sitting in the fridge because theres no room in the freezer.... packaging says you can let it thaw for 5 days then cook it... well too bad, my next day off is saturday.... so 7 days.... because its supposed to take 5.5-7.5 hours to cook it!!

So next weekend.... road trip to Canada to eat turducken? LOL

Cara- glad the CM has decided to float this thread at the top!

Sandy- I love old navy!!

Daisy- too funny that Luke coloured in Presley's head!

Hi Tracy,

I'm sorry about the trouble you've been having logging in and this new one with posting. This is something new that's happening, but the tech team is aware of it and working to get it fixed. The login issue is also one of their top priorities and we're confident that will be resolved soon.

I hope this is a NEW tech team cuz if I was working on this since Oct I would have been fired long ago....

Anyhoo its Monday again...  Mrs Johnson is still hanging on- they moved her to the garden room, the final spot. Her daughter and sil are going back to Mississippi today, they have to get back to their jobs. 

Sandy did your dad get out?

Susan did you make those things you posted in the weekend thread ?  MMM they looked good!

Have a good day everyone =)..

Morning Ladies -

No Renee my Dad is not out of the hospital yet.  Long story short - we may be "firing" his doctor this morning!  There were lots of "fireworks" going off in my Dad's room at the hospital yesterday.  Note to everyone - if you get sick and have to go to the emergency room pray it isn't on a long holiday weekend!

Ok - so it's back to work Monday - ugh!  Going to be a busy week for me.  My Dad is still in the hospital and John has to have another procedure done on his shoulder (the one they operated on back in October) on Friday.  He will not be allowed to drive and will need someone to stay with him for 24 hours which means I will be taking Friday off.  I do not think they will be too happy with me in the office but oh well.
