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.

Good gravey!!!!!!!!!!!!! I posted this morning, like 8 hours ago, I come back and it isn't here. Came back again and it was there. . . went to reply to it, and it says "the post you are trying to reply to does not exist" WHAT?!?!?! I just read it. Then it took me back to page 1 of the Babble thread, when I went to the lastpage, my orriginal post is gone!

And yes I know "we are aware of the problems and are working on them" BLAH BLAH BLAH it is a whole loaf of BOLOGNA!!! iVillage really doesn't care that they are loosing regular members over a change that was supposed to go "unnoticed"!! Ugggggg

No, no one else got burnt, just me. I was reading up on my medications and the anti-seziure medicine I take for my chronic headaches makes skin sensitive to sunlight, so I think I figured it out!!  Just need to wear some good sunscreen and a floppy hat for my face.  

Tracy ~ Your weekend sounds so long and exhausting.  You deserve a day off!  I know you enjoy it, most of the time, but you have to have a day of rest somewhere in there!!!!  

Rainy and gloomy here today so far. I have a to-do list as long as my arm, I need some of Tracy's energy to get started. Once I get going, I am pretty good, it's the initial "get up and go" that I have trouble with LOL

I went to Wal-Mart yesterday and found the ring I want LOL  Did I tell you that P picked his out already and I bought it for him?  This is what he got:

And this is what I picked out and sent him a picture of:

Photo is loading

It is blue and regular diamonds set in white gold. It is BEAUTIFUL even if it is from "Wal-Mart"  I'm afraid he won't think it is "good enough" for me. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!! Oh well, what ever hepicks out I will love.  And this is the diamond and wedding band with it!!!!!

Well, better go get the day started. Have a great Monday!

Good Morning Ladies -

Any one else having problems with seasonal allergies?  I am just suffering something this year something awful!

I hear you on the short weekend Tracy.  Working on Saturday and running around trying to get stuff done yesterday tuckered me out too.  I didn't get as much done as I wanted but got somethings done.  Laundry is done except for a huge pile of ironing I need to tackle when I get home tonight.  I let it go and now it is beyond pretty.

Renee I forgot to say your two little ones are so cute!  I am sure I don't have to ask if they had a good time or not.

Daisy when is the wedding in Texas?  Pretty soon right.

Shelly, did anyone else get burned? Your face sounds awful.  Amd painful for sure.   Being really pale like I am, I have burned like that before, but it's been a long time.  Sunburn is miserable.

My alarm went off at 4:20 this morning and I felt like I had hit the wall of exhaustion. I turned it off and turned on a later alarm. And then I laid there with my mind spinning with guilt for not getting out of bed to workout. So 20 minutes later I got on out of bed and worked out. I'm running a little late for my indecision, but I made it.

I got it all done yesterday. I feel like I had absolutely zero weekend, no sitting and doing nothing at all, but I did it all. Yesterday I got the grocery run done, bought the plants for my garden, got the garden bed weeded out again and the soil turned, all the plants in the ground, the softball run done, saw the bulk of DS's baseball game, finished the laundry, got it all folded and put up, cooked supper and cleaned the kitchen. And I was sound asleep by 9:45. I need another weekend.

This week brings 3 softball games and 1 baseball game. And on Friday, I have nothing. Nothing at all. I cannot wait.

Am I healing?  I guess so, but it sure doesn't feel like it to me. Soo painful!!! I took a shower this morning and the water hit it and knocked most of the white scabs off, so now it is just regular scabs, And HURTS!  I keep my antibiotic cream on it and Aloe, but it just isn't healing up fast enough for me. The inside of my bottom lip is a light shade of purple. YUCK

P left for work today. :( Just over in Ohio, but luickily it is only 5 days a week, instead of 6! So he will be home Friday evening.

Hello,

I survived another Prom. I added it up. I have now attended 17 Proms in my life. Wow. I don't take pictures of the kids. The best dress I saw was plastic. Yes, plastic and multi-colored. Her date wore a tux made of blue duct tape.

I would dearly, dearly love a day at home today. Won't happen. I need to get my garden in. I can't remember a time where I haven't had my garden in on April 28th. I have zero time! I could get the plants this morning, but then when could I plant them? Maybe tomorrow. I need to look at my schedule for next week. I know softball doesn't play tomorrow. But she has a game every other day this week. I am picking her up from her dad's house at 11:00 this morning and then we are headed to another town for a 3-hour softball practice with her summer team. And DS has a game that I will just make when we are getting home. So, that's leave the house at noon and get home around 6:00.

I also need to mow again. The areas that I didn't string trim the last time I mowed are almost knee deep. Ugh! I need more time.

Happy Sunday!

Good Morning Ladies -

Gaye so happy for RooBen.  He just looks like such a sweet little happy dog.

Tracy how was Prom Night.  Any good pics?  Did you get rained on?

Missy how did the tag sale go? 

Sounds like everyone was either out and about of spring cleaning or mowing the lawn.  Oh the sounds of spring!  Love it.

We actually had a beautiful day yesterday.  I had "visitors" which helped make the time go by.  Of course half of them I had convinced to come out on Saturday while I knew I would be there instead of making seperate appointments during the week.  I went Sandy shopping for a bit when I got off duty, came home and then John and I went to an outdoor type mall and actually got to sit outside for dinner!  We did some more shopping after we ate.  The weather was just so nice the place was packed.  It felt great to be "outdoors" again.

Today I am heading to the Y for my back to back classes then home to shower and get dressed and then I need to hit the grocery store.  Not sure what we will do after that but for sure I will fire up the grill for dinner tonight.
