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.

So sorry Renee.  Hugs to you, Kay, and family.

Of course we watched Justified, Tracy.  To good (looking) not to watch!  Did you watch the entire episode already?  What did you think?

Renee that is very sad for the Johnson family. Guess she knew when she wanted to leave.

Let's see if I can post.

Renee, sorry to hear about the Johnson family.

Daisy, sorry I thought you said Amber but it's Ashleigh that fell. How is she feeling?

Tracy, I love planning for vacations. Especially this time of year. Takes you to a whole new, warm place. Can't wait to hear which area you decide on. Either one is a good pick.

Well, look at this. I was trying to post a new siggy and Hunter is in there. I'll have to figure out what I did wrong later.

iVillage is all wacky for me today.... I posted a recipe and it had an extra box ... there were three... subject, summary and body..... it was weird... I put the recipe in the 'body' box and left the summary box empty. It all ran together.... ugh... hopefully they are doing something that is gonna fix a lot of problems.... Ashleigh's arm is feeling a lot better.... it is still sore and she said it was hard to wash her hair and she cannot pick up either Luke or Presley but at least it isn't as painful as it was the day she did it. Her boss did call her again and told her she could get treatment and he'd pay for it but she told him if it did not get better she would. He and his wife both treasure Ashleigh so I am sure they would definitely take care of her if they needed to... he used to be (and can still be sometimes) a big jerk but he is generous with her. Now if we could just get him to put her on an insurance plan! He gave her $400, a Kindle Fire HD, 2 beads for her Pandora bracelet (that they got her last year), 3 or 4 bottles of lotion from Victoria's Secret, a zebra blanket and all kinds of other stuff for Christmas... and gives her an extra $50 each month for her to go to the post office twice a week... which is only about 5 miles out of her way. Anyway.... she is doing better and her injury is documented but hopefully she won't need to worry about it in the future. Renee, i will pray for Kay and her in-laws...sad stuff... but glad you get to spend some time with Dom (hope you don't mind if I shorten it... I am not really sure how to spell it... lol). It's cute... Have fun vacation planning, Tracy... Glad your dad is home, Sandy... did they ever figure out what happened to him for sure? Mel, did you ever get to have that talk with your dad's wife? I hope so... i hate when people do that to me, it's miserable. Well, I've been interrupted at least 6 times since I started this..... and I forgot what else I had to say. Better get back to work.... got PLENTY to do!!!

Daisy it sounds like Ash works for a small company. She should find out if the belong to the Chamber of Commerce. If they do she may be able to get on a group plan through the chamber.

Ok Shelly, I am seeing your FB post.   What's up?   The school official in me is dying here.   You know I live for that stuff.

Morning Ladies =)..

Yes half a day gets me out at a nice time.. Love it ! And we were told yesterday we got a raise !! They wanted everyone at the same amount- unless you had been there forever. so I think I am getting 78 cents more an hour !!! YEAH ME ! Also today I will get paid for 18 hours of paid time off I did not use last year... I am pumped =)

Guss how much longer is David home ? Where is he off to after ?

Sandy your dad doing ok?

Daisy I didn't get your tex back till late last night- I am actually fighing with unemployment for a week last Aug. They said I filed late without good cause. I did it online on the first day I was off (Mon) and they have no record ogf it- I called Marvin the following Mon and that is when it said I didn't file. So I did it again on that day- Mon and  they are saying I should have filed by the previous Fri- nice huh

Well, that just sucks, Renee! I know you are always on top of that stuff.... even calling when we were in Ohio having our Q&E (Quality & Enjoyment) time... don't give up and I will keep my hubby on it too. I don't know if he will get it but I don't want him to give up! I'm up, ready to go to work except for taking the curlers out of my hair ... woke up at 4:10 am... hopped in the shower, played some words with friends and checked email. I was thinking about tackling the mound of dirty dishes in the kitchen but didn't feel like it this morning. I hate when the dishes get so backed up ... then I just avoid them like the plague! I keep hoping that when I come home from work my fairy godmother will have done them for me... but nope... Ashleigh usually helps me but her arm is still bothering her. Oh well... my hubby told me he'd help me tonight! I had a panicky day yesterday at work... I have been looking for the checkbook in all the boxes we haven't unpacked yet and could not find it anywhere. I have 3 checks to write and I figured I would have come across it before long. But, then my supervisor (little bossman) needed the ABA (?) number off the checks so I had to make it my #1 mission. He and Maria even came to help me go through them. Big bossman came in and wondered what all the fuss was... when we told him we were looking for the checkbook, his eyes got all big like he couldn't believe I lost the checkbook! We double checked all the boxes but still could not find it. And worst of all... i did not even remember packing it. It was 3 weeks ago and we were packing like mad-people that last day (which was when I packed it because I use it all the time). I was off work for almost 2 weeks so heck if I knew where it was or even IF I had packed it. Thankfully at 3:15 I started digging through a box that Dave swore up & down he had looked through twice. I figured it wouldn't hurt..... yep, there it was in the bottom. I was saying some mighty thankful prayers I tell ya! Well, I better go get these curlers outta my hair and go get my car started so it can warm up. Check back after I get to work, gals....
