Q&E Babble

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.

Morning Ladies - Daisy so glad you found that checkbook! Of course it would have been nice if the other guy had actually looked in the box you found it in and saved you all that panic! Hope you got your dishes cleaned up. I hate piled up dishes so that does not happen in our house. Laundry on the other hand - well good thing there is a door on our laundry room - lol!

Good Morning ladies!!! ivillage is being nice again, and letting me post! fingers crossed! Yes I heard from my step Mum.... dad is still alive! Phew. hes back in hospital because he has 2 infections in his foot.... strep, and staph...( they may need to remove the rod in his foot, and replace it with something else, and he still may lose his foot) I told Jane dont ever send emails to me like that again! here we are thinking the worst that Dad has died! she said she was sorry and wont do that again. Geez. I said I cant afford to pay for 2 flights this year, to go home for a funeral. Daisy- glad you found the cheque book! DH started his radiation treatment yesterday... 2 down, 8 to go.... they are all early in the morning, so poor bugger wont be getting much sleep for the next week and a half! I better go and do some wii I suppose... havent done any this week, Im still tired. Oh this is unofficial..... but Ive taken 4 pregnancy tests..... and all have been positive!! ( hence the tiredness lol) found out on sunday... so its still super early! Im off to my doctor ( family doctor) next wednesday, and will have the blood test done( at the hospital not the doctors) to confirm it. so thats my news! Have a great day everyone!

I would have been in a full panic over that checkbook too.   So glad you found it.

I had a great time at supper last night.   I was very proud of my eating.   I never say no to cheese dip at a Mexican resturant.   But I didn't order any last night.   I got the super hot salsa verde (green salsa) instead.   I mixed it with red salsa on my chicken fajitas.   I didn't eat all my rice.   And I split one basket of chips with one other girl and we didn't get it refilled.   With my calorie allotment for the day, and adding generous portions of food to my calculator (I know the restaurant portions are large) I finished the day with 8 calories remaining.

I then got up and worked out before work again.   I better start seeing results soon.  

Daisy, Shelly has it on her FB page that the school Waylon is set to attend in a year or two had a bomb threat yeserday so she is thinking about homeschooling the boys.  

We get bomb threats all the time.   Social media is the bane of our existance at work with stuff like that.   Someone takes a crumb of info, blows it 1,000 times out of porportion, and then the rumors from that creates chaos in the schools.  

Mel, we need an update on that phone call.   Did you hear from stepmom yet?

Sad day, Renee.   But great news on the raise.   Hope you get your unemployment thing worked out.   And yes, I know too that you call  that line all the time.   You and Daisy will be talking about it and I am always like "who is this Marvin guy and how do you both know him?"

No, y'all I'm not still working.  I might go back to train a new hire for a day or two, but right now I'm sick as a dog.  I think I found the one strain of flu that was not included in this year's flu vaccine (which I got in October). Started with a dry cough on Tuesday and went downhill from there.

Daisy - glad you found the checkbook.  I hate that panicked feeling too.

Sandy - I can't stand built up dishes on the counter either.  Our laundrys in the basement, so there's usually a pile at the bottom of the steps.  Yup, that goodness for that door!!

Renee - congrats on that raise!  That's a fair amount too!  OUr challenge is until Apr 1st.  I hope I can make it that long!  lol

Gaye - I hope you feel better soon.  I've heard a few times that there are different strains than the shots that were given.

Hey - the tree and fonts are back!  I'm bored at work.  I don't really don't to enter invoices.  I still have 1 1/2 hours left.
