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, that sounded bad. :(  Some of the guys here have dropped 10-12 lbs already.  I know, slow and steady wins the race.

Susan, is your contest by weight or percentage of weight lost?   Ours here are always by percentage.   I would be happy with 4 pounds.

Oh Susan guys always seem to drop the weight faster than ladies!  What is with that any way?  It isn't fair!  John will decide to get back on track and cut out sweets and he drops 5 pounds in a week. I look at the stuff or just smell it and I gain 5 pounds in a week.

Missy I meant to say I am sending good health vibes to both the men in your family dealing with health stuff right now!

Good morning.

Mel, any funky dreams last night?   You didn't dream about naming your baby Leek or Chive did you?  Good luck with the cloth diapers.   I had visions of doing the same.   I just couldn't.   The disposable ones were just too easy to use.   But I really wanted to do the cloth thing.   I'm pretty green and the idea really appealed to me.  I have also heard that it's easier to potty train a cloth diaper baby.  

Missy, how did Ray's appointment go?   Your stepdad any better?   I hope so.

Susan, with that being a percentage contest, and you are down 4 pounds, you are doing good.   I am set to weigh today.   We'll see how it goes.

Anything else going on out there?

One of my co-workers just called in for the second day in a row.   I hope he doesn't have the flu.  We'll be disinfecting his desk today.  

I leveled up on my Jillian Michaels DVD yesterday.   I did it again this morning.   I just walked to the kitchen to get more coffee.  Every muscle in my body screamed at me.   Wow, that hurts.

I hope today goes by fast.   We are headed for a record high of 70° today.   I am ready to be out in it.

Morning Ladies -

So Tracy in level 2 does she start to "yell" at you?  I am a afraid of her so I could never do her workout - lol!  

Mel - cloth diapers???  For twins????  That's going to be a lot of laundry for you!!!!

Missy I hope the men in your family get good news today.

Where are Guss, Shelly and Daisy hiding out???

Our crappy weather from yesterday is done.  It was a bit of a slippery ride home from work but today it is suppose to warm up into the 40's.  Not 70 like where Tracy lives but still pretty nice for us this time of year.

LOL well I have awhile to decide if we actually use cloth or not( DH says hes onboard, but when it comes down to it, I can see myself doing all the laundry, unless hes going to magically start helping when the baby is born! lol)....Its more the cost factor for us... and some of the green factor...

I was telling MIL that I wake up starving in the middle of the night.... she said that happened to her... but with the twins she had( she lost them when she was 6 months pregnant) but not with the other 3!

Okay got up early to throw everything in the crockpot for dinner tonight- using the split pea and sausage soup recipe, but using ham instead...  had some toast, and now Im going back to bed!

Weird - everybody is wearing their Christmas sigs this morning (except Mel - pretty tulips, still). Wonder what mine will be?
