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.

Tracy - I have my 1 cup of hot tea in the mornings - ZERO calories!  WOOT!  I add my 30 calories by 2 teaspoons of sugar.

Gus - would you all be moving to Germany?  If not, how long would D be gone?  Baby B is beautiful and so big so fast.  You won't be able to call him "baby" B much longer.

Shelly - J is growing up fast!  When I look at pictures of the girls, even a couple years ago, and see how they have matured, it makes me sad.  Enjoy each day!  How is Waylon feeling?

I got up this morning and did my workout while DH was in the shower.  I'm not sure if I prefer the mornings or not.  I guess we'll see.  I told Natalie last night that I have a goal for this year.  To run a 5k with her.  She was so excited.  I'm hoping the DVD will help with my endurance.  She is so excited to get out and run this year.

I was looking for a runner's prayer and saw this on the internet...Shelly, the will power is in YOU!

Found this pic awhile back, and keep forgetting to post it on a Friday. Not Friday here, yet, but it should be waiting for you East coast girls when you get up.....

Well, I ate crappy for lunch yesterday and it ruined my whole diet day.   We did fish for supper and that helped, but I still went over.   Not going to beat myself up over it though.   I didn't get up early for a workout today.  I may regret that later.   But I plan on running Saturday and Sunday.   Or I could do it this afternoon.

My coffee, brewed from grounds, for 3 cups (24 ounces) I record 7 calories.   I use liquid creamer, gets me 30 calories (working on that) and then the sugar is 38 for 3 teaspoons.   Working on that too.   My amounts have gone down.   I probably need to readjust the creamer entry already.   I think I am using less than the amount I have entered into Fitness Pal.

Snow day here today.   I hate it.   It's not bad now, but they called it off based on what is coming.   There is a little on the ground now.  I hate snow, I have getting out of my routine, and I hate having to make it up.   I can walk endless laps around the building today as I have little to do.  My ridiculous ex had my son last night.   He just texted me to see if I have the boy's trumpet.   Um... it's a snow day.   He didn't even look.   Poor kid.  He got up early and has had a shower and got dressed.  Snow day and he doesn't even get to enjoy it.  His dad.... no words.   And as a side note, the boy has band on Fridays.   I was out of town last Friday.   He picked the kids up.   He has the trumpet.   He never looks for anything.   He just glances around, doesn't see it, and assumes it's here.   We go through this with uniforms, shoes, coats, school stuff, etc. all the time.   It's 99% of the time at his place and he just didn't look for it.   Much easier to accuse me of being unorganized and not getting something to him.

Now I get to wait and see what they will do with the games tonight.   We still may play them.   We may not.   We'll see.

Ah, I love the weiner dog picture Cara! 

This is my long puppy trying to get comfy between the end of the couch and DH.  lol  He thinks he can fit into places he really can't.

We didn't have a snow day, but I just saw on FB that they cancelled afternoon kindergarten.  If we can make it to 1:42 and early dismiss then, we still get credit for a full school day.  *fingers crossed*

Guss, he's so cute and getting big! Germany hmmmmm just curious, why would Evey not be able to go? And when does David have to report?

Tracy, too bad your ds didn't get to sleep. Your ex is just plain stupid. I don't usually use that word to describe anyone but I couldn't think of anything else for him. lol

Shelly, hope you feel better.

Mel, don't know how you kept from getting sick. The smell of sushi when pregnant.....ewwwww I would have lost it. Glad to hear Paul is done with treatments.

Snow day here for Kelsie. Baylie had to go. It was icy this morning but all rain now. Don't know why they don't do late starts in our county.

Morning all !

Felt wonderful sleeping in =).

Not really hiding Sandy just busy. I swear I don't know where the time goes- had no kids all week and sat down to post and something came up. John got up with me a few times this week too and that always throws me off. 

It was very cold all week and we got snow Friday and its snowing out there now.. Amyahs school was closed Friday due to a water main break. 

Mel hope the morning sickness goes away- I remember the thought of yogurt made me sick- loved the stuff and yes after the fact I could still eat it =)..

Oh My Guss - Germany ? Keep us posted ! And I bet Evey will love preschool =)..

Tracy and Susan you are doing super good - Pat yourself on the back !

Shelly baby steps- one day at a time, think positive - you can do it !

Gaye did you ever get over your flu bug?

Missy hows it going working with Mr Missy ?

Sandy your Dad doing good?

Cara the owners of weiner dogs loved your picture =).. Dale sits on Johns lap and John always says " Renee look at my long black weiner " .... 

And on that note- 

Enjoy your Saturday LADIES!!
