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.

It is light out now and I open the front door.  The drift on our front walk right off the front porch is over FOR FEET - YIKES!!!!!

Gaye I think I would have listened to your BIL's radio program.  It sounded interesting.  Bangor, Maine - I think they got hit with the storm too but not so sure they got as much as we did.

Mel is it still snowing for you?  It is here but slowly letting up.

Morning Ladies !

Sandy KEEP your snow =).. We didn't get what they said we were going to and I am glad.. Saw enough already !

No Gaye, there is no way he looks 72 .. Good Genes..

Daisy I agree with the others I would steer clear. And thanks also for explaining.

Tracy good luck with the closet organizer- I have lots of closet space now that the girls are gone!

Yes  Mel enjoy your day off but also look into the preggo pop- hope the morning sickness subsides- I bet it will soon.

I did Maggies taxes and she is buying a little red pick up truck from John with her refund. It is a stick so that is what we have been teaching her .. She got it titled and licenced yesterday- She told me the feeling of driving is better then any drug she did =).. Here she is at the secretary of states:

 Happy Happy middle child !

Amyah asked if she could get her picture taken with Maggie- for her drivers licence! 

Casey just completed her extornship - she is a Medical Assitant ! Now she has to find a job...

Molly is doing good at her job- they call her in all the time- John has bonded with Dominic big time- he was 3 months old Thursday- he smiles and has just found his hands. 

Molly and I are taking a bus to the casino tonight- Hope we WIN big time ! 

Everyone enjoy your Saturday ....

Morning Ladies -

Holy Moly do we have a lot of snow or what!  Over 2 feet and it is still coming down.  Almost done but still coming down.  Poor Webster didn't know what to do this morning.  Couldn't get out the front door so we opened up the garage door for him hoping he would think he was outside.  Poor guy was afraid of getting scolded for doing his business inside so John and i kept telling him it was ok go go in the garage.  The snow was over his head and he just kept barking at it.  

Roads are all closed here except for emergency vehicles.  No one is going any place anytime soon.  We are just locked in and at the hands of Mother Nature.

Mel I would spend the $1.00 per pregoo pop if I thought it would make me feel better.  Sometimes things are just worth the money!  Enjoy your snow day and NO shoveling for you!

Glad you got a snow day, Mel.   Nasty winter weather scares me.   Probably because I'm not used to it.   I had the headaches from caffeine withdrawl.   I went caffeine free with both pregnancies.  Maybe if you look that up you may get some ideas.   Maybe you already have, not sure.   Sometimes mine got so bad I had a few drinks of caffeine just to relieve the headache.   Queasiness?   Sorry, I'm no help.   I got a little nauseous in the evenings but it didn't last long and it wasn't terrible. 

Daisy, I hope radniothing is easy for you to avoid.   I wouldn't want to look at it either.

Gaye, not a chance I'd guess BIL at 72.   He looks sharp.

I am off to the store to find a closet organizer for DD.   Her softball stuff is taking over her dresser and when laundry is caught up the drawers are so full they won't close.   I am sure I can find something in Lowe's to put in her closet floor and more the softball stuff there. 

And then I am off to help my friend scrub her nasty rental house.   Then to work and then to DS's basketball game.

Sandy, I hope you are safe and have electricty.  I looked up the local news in Sandy's area.   Looks like they are expecting 20" when it's over this afternoon.   All roads in CT are closed.   And I saw an article that said 1,000's are without power.
