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.

Okay 3rd time lucky signing in! hope it sticks so I can post this!

Ugh it was so windy yesterday, we ended up losing power for an hour before I had to go to work.... I was using my e-reader for light, trying to find a darn flashlight LOL. couldnt find the bbq lighter to light any candles. it came on just in time to get ready for work, and then just as I was leaving, it went out again.... not sure how long it stayed off.... a few hours at least, because one of my co-workers lives near me, and he called his wife at 1am, and it was still out! Glad its back on!

Brrrrr that is cold Tracy! Good luck on the drive to work!

Okay Im going to bed! have a great day ladies!

Morning Ladies -

Tracy it sounds like you have a "work-out buddy"!  That's great for both of you!  I had gotten away from doing my Zumba Tone at home for a while because John had swiped my work-out sticks.  I did it last night for the 1st time since way before Christmas and I was sucking wind.  It isn't like I don't work-out but when you switch things up you use different muscles etc. and boy did I feel it.

Well it is so cold today and the crap you have on the ground Tracy we are going to get Sunday late in the day and into Monday morning.  Yahooooooooo!  I just love Angel Poop! - NOT!

Good Morning ladies:-)

Tracy David and I started doing Insanity together last night, UGH, its a lot LOL.

I think I paid $3.13 for gas yesterday but I had a 10 cent gas reward and I have to use mid grade...does anybodys car take 85 octane???

Its chilly out here this morning too, I took Evey to school and she told me she was an Evey cube...LOL. I am trying to get some stuff done around here while the baby sleeps(he is finally feeling better and eating more) I need to shower and put some make up on, all before 11:30....I dread dealing with Evey this afternoon she is like in sensory overload after she gets home from school...her OT had some ideas of how to help her but still I am scared of the  inevitable meltdown. Oh well...

Alright I am off to do laundry and dishes, yuck.

Wow, sounds like you girls are all getting ugly weather! We had a couple weeks of mostly below freezing weather here, but we are back to our usual grey, drippy upper thirties to upper forties.

Yesterday was an inservice training, and boy was it a long one. My band colleague was out sick (he looked like the walking dead on Wednesday, but came to school anyway because it was the last day of the semester and he needed to be there for last minute "please can I retake this test because if I don't I won't be eligible to play the first three basketball games and I might not make the team", etc. I don't know how he made it through the day. Another lunch buddy was doing follow up doctor appointments (1 year- post cancer treatment) and another one got to school, but we had to call her folks to come get her and take her to urgent care because she was in so much pain we didn't want her to drive herself. Turns out it is probably gall stones, but she can't get an ultrasound to be sure until Tuesday.  So, (and I realize how petty this sounds!) the only bearable part of these days (grabbing a quick lunch out with the girls) was just like every other day. I ate a bowl of noodles and a granola bar out of my desk drawer in the staff room.

Today is not a contract day, but I need to go in and finalize my grades and get ready for the new semester on Monday. Clean off my desk and piano, and make some progress in organizing the choir contest I have to host in April. Hoping it will be productive, at least. The boys are anxiously awaiting my departure (I'm two hours behind my usual time), but I don't want to go, so I am stalling here......

Yucky cold here too.  -13 with the wind chill this morning.  The snow stayed south of us last night, but I think we're looking at 2-3 in tomorrow and another inch on Sunday.

Sandy - I agree about "changing up" the workout.  I did my DVD Tuesday morning, ran Tues eve and Wed eve and then back to the DVD on Thurs eve and that was bad enough.  I couldn't believe that it seemed a bit harder!  We ordered pizza at lunch today.  I DEF need to do my DVD tonight! 

Our gas prices fluxuate so much, it barely phases me anymore.  That's really sad.  I think we're about 3.49 right now.  I need to gas up after work today.

I better get back to work...I have a lot to get done this afternoon.

Guss how is Evey doing at school.  Does she seem to like it?  Is she interacting with the other kids?

I did not get up early to workout today.   And I went out for lunch with co-workers,   And I don't feel guilty at all.   I will try to get in a long workout tomorrow.   I agree with mixing it up.   Maybe some Wii Zumba will do the trick.

Cara, I have had days like that.   No fun at all.

Freezing cold here too. It was 14 this morning.

Renee, no on the window. We haven't met our deductible. We have plastic and duck tape on it. The window people said it would take a week to order it. Ugghhh, cold air coming through it and of course it has to be freezing weather. All our neighbors have tarp on their roofs. Some how we escaped roof damage. It was confirmed a tornado was right down the street from us. Gives me the chills thinking of it. Ray just said how stupid were we standing in front of a broken window with winds over 90mph trying to fix it. With glass all over the floor. I'm still cleaning up slivers of glass that keep showing up.

Hunter is 1 years old today!!! Can't believe how fast the time flies.

We had a dusting of snow last night but not enough to call school off. Calling for more in the morning.

Daisy, how's the basement?

Guss, how is Evey liking pre school?

Mel, how are you feeling?

Shelly, I hope everyone in your house gets well soon.

Missy that sucks about the window!!! And Happy Birthday Hunter!!!!

Sandy, Evelyn seems to really like pre-school. She is doing better about interacting but it's spmething here teachers are helping her with, and they are great. I love having a few hours alone with baby b to get things things done or just spend time with him. She loves school too, she is excited to go and when I pick her up tells me all kidns of stories LOL.
