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.

Guss, that sounds stressful.   I hope you all get resolution on it soon.   And I hope you kick your funks.   I hate being sick.

Guess what I just did?   Did you guess drink a beer?   If you did you are right.   But before that I really stepped it up and took down my Christmas lights.   Yes, that redneck with their lights still up, that was me.   I never turned them on, but there they were.   It's been rainy or too cold or icy or I'm gone on weekends.   And did I mention it's 70 here today?   I got up there in my t-shirt, capris, and bare feet.   And then I had a Coors Light.   Yes, tomorrow night it's suppposed to snow.

And now I had an "oh yeah" moment and replaced the Santa Claus house flag with a holly leaf winter designed one.   Oh how I long for my "It's 5:00 Somewhere" or floral flip-flopped summer flags.

I was thinking the same thing as I read that Sandy- I am gasping that Tracy still had up Christmas lights!  Get that summer flag flying =).

OUCH on the week long heartburn Missy.. Glad its gone and hope it don't return. Glad Ray got good results from the doc. 

Mel one of the girls' friends from school just had twin girls- born on Sunday- 5lbs 11 oz and 5 lbs 12 oz. She has two boys at home.. They named the girls Miley and Gracie- Made me think of you =).

Gus I hope things get worked out with David.. When is he going to Germany if he goes?

Susan and Tracy you are both doing great! They are starting one on Monday at my work- so you can pig out on super bowl Sunday first...

This mornings ride to work was crazy- it was pouring and pretty foggy ... Our snow is gone.and right now its 56* out there ! Tomorrow a chance of snow and Thursday wind chills will be negative 3..

Dominic is here and being fussy- Gotta run !

Mel, when will the doctor confirm that you are having twins?

Crazy morning here. Super high winds and tornado warnings all over. I went out to take down my house flag, the one I just changed yesterday. The wind was making it shake like a tree limb. With the warm air, it's 67° here right now, it's just spooky out there. The big line will hit within 30 minutes. I hope I don't get a tree down on the house. It's freaking me out some. The wind is howling. I feel like we are about to blow away.

Pretty quiet around here. I emailed the tech support about the empty folders. No response. I have also been over on the Help board asking about how to change my preferences when on Firefox. I have no links at all showing. I'll post about our empty folders there.

Morning Ladies -

Tracy hope you stay safe!  It's warm here this morning but not as warm as it is where you are.  We are going to be getting heavy rain and crazy wind tonight and into tomorrow morning.  That weather front hitting your area now is headed out way.  YIKES!

Missy glad Ray's news was good and I hope your Mom's DH gets to feeling better soon.  

I have the same question as Tracy for you Mel.  When will you be finding out about the twins?

We heard from Renee and Guss yesterday but still no Daisy and no Shelly?????  Come out, come out wherever you are!

Good Morning ladies! Im feeling cranky this morning. Rrrooarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I was looking up flights for Mum for when she visits in september.... and the orginal deal was my sister and I to go halves.... but my sis cant afford to help at all..... so its falling on me... anyway, Mum said its a shame the baby isnt coming next year instead, to give us a chance to save up more $$$.... WTF???

I said Im sorry if we are inconveniencing anyone here...and that she doesnt have to visit this year if she doesnt want to...( she didnt respond to the last bit lol)

Oh to answer your question.... I see the obgyn feb 13th, dont know is shes going to try and find the heartbeat then? Im having my first ultrasound end of february sometime....

Its supposed to rain and snow today.... theres a few parents on my facebook that are cranky that the english schools have been cancelled today....

Sorry I forget what else I had to comment on...

I think (although maybe I am wrong) that they likely won't be able to tell by just the heartbeat - can't always hear them both. Sounds like your ultrasound at the end of the month will be the first official news about the twins. ;-)

Sorry your mom isn't sounding as supportive as she could. Not being right here, she hasn't lived with the loss and anxiety of trying to conceive like you have. She isn't REALLY wishing that you weren't pregnant, I am sure.
