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.

Still pretty windy here too.  Nat and I tried to run again last night, but it was pretty windy.  We got about .7 of a mile done before supper.  And when we were eating the cold front swept through, rain and winds like crazy!

Went to Mother's Tea with Nat last night for 4H.  I found out about it at 6 and it started at 8 (thanks Nat!).  We stopped at the store and bought cookies.  Ate and played games.  Didn't get home until about 9:30.  Then DH and I watched Justified and didn't go to bed till close to 11.  We didn't sleep real good either.  I see tonight as an early night!

It is still windy here but the sun is coming out.  It is 60 degrees right now and by rush hour tonight it will be down to 30 and colder through the night into Friday.  What's with that????

Switching to my Valentine's Day sig reminds me.  I told DH last night that he had to take the girls out for supper on Valentine's Day.  I think they would get a kick out of that.  A special "date" with daddy.  I also found each of them a Valentine's Day card at the Dollar Store the other day.  Nothing super mushy, they were more along the lines of we're proud of you and your becoming a beautiful young lady.

Couldn't get signed in with my usual Firefox this morning, but Chrome seems to be working.  Why the hell are we still having to play "guess what browser will work today"?

Also, I have flagged Jane the spammer at least twice, and that post is still here. How many other people have flagged it? I am going over to the help board to report it.....

Did any one else watch the past Super Bowl Commercials last night?  They counted down the top 10.  It was great!  Number one always brings tears to my eyes.

If you flag a post and it doesn't get removed, you can send me a PM or email me at HHCM@mail.ivillage.com. If it violates the TOS, it will be removed.

Thanks!

Glad to see you this morning, Renee.   I miss seeing you often.  

Our gas went from $3.19 earlier in the week to $3.39 now.   I just checked my Gas Buddy app.   That stinks.   I will need to fill up this weekend. 

It's cold as $*%$ here.   Wind chill of -6° (-21°C).   It's 8 without the wind chill.   Just bitter out there.   And a snow day to boot.   Looks like we got about 2" out there.   The University of KY is on a 2-hour delay.   Sounds like I am going to have a fun drive into work.   Have I mentioned that I hate cold weather, snow, and snow days?   I ran out of stuff to do on our snow day last Friday.   I guess I will organize recipes today.   And walk around the building.   Today is one of my days off from exercise.   DD and I were comparing moved from Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and the Insanity series she has been doing with softball conditioning.   She mentioned that where try-outs are in 2 weeks, they are pulling off conditioning and doing more softball drills.   She said she was surprised how much she missed the workouts and if I did one, not too early, on the weekend she'd do it with me.   YAY!   And she asked if I could get an Insantity DVD for us to do too.   I love it. 

No overtime for me this weekend.   That is unless my officer out with the flu can't make his game tomorrow.   If he calls in, I'll have to cover it.   He's been sick since Sunday, so hopefully he'll be okay by tomorrow.   My games are winding down.  They packed most of their home games into the early part of the season.   We only have 2 boys home games left.   I do like that my overtime winds down by baseball/softball season.   Her tryouts are Valentine's Day.   DS should try out for the more competitive division within the next 2 weeks.   Then he'll be practicing 4-5 days a week.  

The news keeps saying over and over how icy the roads are.   If it looks clear, it's likely black ice.   I loathe driving that big ole rear-wheel drive Crown Vic police car in this weather.   I slide all over the road.   I see me shoveling my driveway and sidewalk before I head out.   I hate a snowy driveway.
