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.

Super cute pics, Daisy.

Still seeing a pink umbrella, Susan.   I was still sporting my Valentine's Day heart earlier today too.   Ugh!

Dang, all you work-out machines and cleaning machines are making me feel really lazy!  Great job all of you... I can't wait to get outside and start cleaning my patio area... it's going to be fun out there this year with Luke & Presley!

Speaking of Presley... she is sick.  Friday evening she threw up about 6 times then Saturday she seemed to feel better but then yesterday she had it coming out the other end and Amber said it was terrible... filled up the diaper and messed up her clothes about 3 times.  Poor baby girl...

Then this morning, Amber called me.... guess who's sick now?  Amber.... so I went out to start my car and it wouldn't start... great!  I had to go get Ash out of bed to take me.  I thought I was going to be late but I made it with 3 minutes to spare!  Amber is still sick (throwing up) so I am going to have to wait for my husband to come get me after he gets home which won't be until after 4:00.  Oh well... only 30 minutes.  I told Amber if she was still sick tonight, I'd come over and watch the kids until they went to bed.  Nick is there today but he has to work tonight.

Tracy - great pics... especially that can coozie!  I texted Tracy Saturday night asking her if she was using that coozie because it seemed to bring us luck... lol.  I cannot believe that Michigan is in the final!  It's great!  BTW, I won our family brackets!!!  Everyone has to go eat at a place of my choice!

I was wondering where Missy was too!  Glad you are coming back...

Renee... Kynsie & Dominic DO favor each other.... wow!  Sometimes we don't see it until we look back at the pics.

The granddaughter of the lady across the street was flying a kite out in our field the other day and my husband took Luke out there to see it.  He was so darn cute ... Katie got a couple pictures and sent them to us..aren't these the cutest things!?!?

Great photos Tracy!  Good luck with figuring out the plans for next year. 

Sandy - productive day!  I was pretty sore from the deep clean too.  Washing baseboards on my knees, washing walls up and down the ladder, in my back and arms from sweeping and carpet cleaning.  You know the crappy part...it doesn't "look" any different.  But I know its much cleaner.

Great photos Tracy but I am not so sure on the fish dinner you had. Hmmmm - Any way sounds like you are between a rock and a hard place for next year's spring break.  Maybe Jeff will have a change of heart and not make you feel guilty if you don't go with him.  Good job on the weight loss during vacation.  I am sure those 4 - 6 mile walks you took made up for a lot!

My body is screaming at me today.  Saturday I ran around in the morning then went to the Zumbathong - Sunday I did my two hours of Zumba and Aqua Zumba at the Y - came home and swept out the garage - there was more sand in there than at the beach - cleaned out my car - then went in the house and started laundry (four loads - washed - dryed - folded and put away) - changed the sheets on the bed - vaccumed the floors - steam cleaned the downstairs hardwood and upstairs bathroom floors - then started the switch over from winter clothes to spring/summer clothes - took a shower - started dinner and sat down on the coach at 5:00 pm - every part of my body hurts today - I am getting too old for the marathon thing!

Sounds like you had a great family day, Renee.  

Yes, my mom went with us.   We have done the beach trip for spring break together for the past 5 years.   Next year is her last year to teach before retiring.   Jeff has always gone to his mountain house for spring break; taking his kids and meeting his parents.   It's just as likely as not to snow on them while they are there.   He said several of the roads he wanted to drive on (backroads in his hunting areas) were still closed for heavy snow.   He has forever told me that is the way to vacation for spring break.   That makes me shutter.  I want heat.   Well, he is now telling me he is ready to do the beach thing next year.   It's my mom's last year and she wants that spring break beach trip as a break from work.   My kids want to go with my mom one last time.   I approached the whole idea of waiting one more year with him and he got a little ticked off.   We'll see what happens.   My mom and I have also spoke to my friend we travelled with on Friday.   That family had never spring break beach tripped before, but she said they are hooked and will be back next year.  We'd like to go to the same area as them next year.   So now, what to do?   At least I have a few months to figure it out.   We need to book by about August or it'll all be booked up.  

Jeff and I leave for Key West in about 10 weeks.   I am so ready to get back.   I am almost certain I was meant to live in a tropical climate.  

Back to work today.   I don't want to go.  I did get up and work out this morning.   My arm is still jacked up so I can't do the weights with Jillian Michaels tapes.  I really need to go to the doctor about that.   I am now thinking tendon damage.   I did my Wii Fit again.   Despite eating like a pig at the beach, I was down 2.4 pounds since my last weigh in (the Thursday before we left).   I guess walking 4-6 miles a day really did help.   I was very pleasantly surprised.   Back to the diet today though.   Ooof.

Awesome pics Tracy- Looks like you had a real good time =).. What memories you are making for them kids ! And LOVE the coozie =)

OK blonde moment - did your Mom go with you?

Kynsie just went to her new school for 2 days- then spring break- she goes back tomorrow. Molly did get her some focus first pills and she is taking them.  The Dr prescribed 5 mgs of Aderal and the pharmacist would not fill it with out talking to the Dr. - something about not giving it to her because she is under 6. And the insurance would not cover it without the dr oking it also because there is not a generic for that?  I am not sure... So since she turns 6 in 31 days Molly is just gonna wait .. So we shall see .

Had a wonderful day today with the family ... The sun was shining - John had more fun then the kids flying the kite.. Good Food, Good company =).. Maggie and her bf came on his Harley- nice day for that.  Molly took the girls to the movies later and Casey, her BF and Chase hung out with us..  

And tomorrow Casey has an interview - fingers crossed ladies !! Its at 1:45 at a drs office in the hospital.. 

Well its that time again,,, the week-ends go too fast =/..

Night All!
