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.

Tristan is watching the Seahawks -Falcons game.... not sounding good for the Hawks. I haven't been watching, but there is far too much cheering from the Atlanta fans for it to be going well for Seattle. Everyone here is sure wishing that the game was in Seattle since the Seahawks are undefeated at home.

I asked one of my vegan friends how she knew she was getting enough protein and calcium in her diet, and she told me about My Fitness Pal.  I did it for awhile, but I have been remiss and haven't been on the site for a couple of months, now.  It is a good tool; I agree.

Not looking great for the Seahawks, and as a Saints fan I would LOVE for the Falcons to lose. Absolutely LOVED watching Peyton Manning choke last night! I am so hoping Ray Lewis gets another Superbowl, I love a good story....

Not an Atlanta fan here either... not sure why but I never have been... lol.

Watching New England and Texans right now.... we, normally, would be pulling for the Texans (because my sister is in Houston) but our Michigan boy, Tom Brady, has our heart so we always pull for New England!  They're behind right now 3-0 but I know our dog's namesake will break out soon!  LOL

Sorry, I got distracted by the dog charging me (he literally runs and jumps on my legs) wanting out so I figured it was an emergency.... he hiked up on a bush for probably 2 seconds, turned around and ran up on the steps to come back in... what the heck???  LOL

Anyway, I forgot what I was going to say...

Brady is probably excited like Webster is because New England is winning!

Well, either way, I'm glad Tom pulled it out!!! I guess he had some help from the other guys too... Hopefully they will do the same thing to Baltimore next week!! Getting ready to head to bed... gotta take some ibuprofen before I do though... my back and arms are sore from lifting those heavy boxes at work today... and I don't want to be even more sore in the morning. Hope everyone had a great week-end ....

I do like oatmeal and so does DS.   He eats it a lot.   I made an oatmeal dish a few years ago from a recipe that Sandy posted.   It was good.   I don't know why I never made it again.

Lazy night here last night.   No football watching in my house.   I have zero interest in the NFL.   Jeff ended up offering to take me out to dinner so I chucked the kids to their dad and went.   Jeff is leaving for Vegas this morning.   I want to go.   Bad.   But no money for it.   All his trip is paid for by the gun store he works in.   One of the owners was going to this trade show along with Jeff and one other worker.   Jeff was angry all yesterday as the owner called him to tell him that he decided not to go so when he called to cancel the room he was told that if he, the man paying for it, wasn't going to be there then he could't get the trade show room rate; meaning Jeff and the other guy will now have to share a room.   They did have 3 reserved.   He was furious because that just sounds like a big ole lie.   Why would the resort care who is there?   He thinks the store is just being cheap and doesn't want to pay for 2 rooms.  

Yesterday I got the cleaning, laundry, ironing, and kitchen scrubbing done.   Why can't all weekends last 3 days?

Morning Ladies -

I love oatmeal.  The dish you are talking about Tracy was baked oatmeal.  I have not made it in a while but I have been thinking about making it.  I am going to check out the recipe Mel posted.

Daisy you must have a happy house this morning - Brady got it done!  Go Pats!  So how does your office look all pretty?  Still have more to unpack?  The show was good.  Not fantastic, but enjoyable.

Tracy I think the same as Jeff - they didn't want to pay for two rooms.  Stupid because they were paying for 3.  Still saving the cost for one whole person to go.  Any way he still gets to go and for free!  Bet he isn't in the room all that much either.

Boy it sure is dark out this morning.  Wonder what time the sun is coming up?
