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.

Wow - chatty girls, today, hooray!  Way more action today than a normal Sunday, even before boardpocalypse!

Got a grocery trip in today (Fred Meyers and Safeway), gassed up the van, stopped at the liquor store and Starbucks. It wasn't too crazy, thankfully. I made sure I got done before noon, though!

Made a batch of biscotti, got the last couple presents wrapped, made some Chex mix. Need to get going on dinner here soon - making lasagna tonight (my brother's fave).

That would be me in the body cast too!  LOL!  

Tracy, you can use venison in any beef recipe but you may have to lard it to keep it from being too tough.  A friend was telling me that he had sweet and sour venison once that was to DIE for, so I am hunting for a recipe.  

Daisy, us old timers just CAN'T do without our iVillage fix!  I NEVER give up; in fact, my family will probably bury me with the computer!

Shelly - you can change the sort in individual threads by clicking on "thread options" at the top of the thread. If you want to change the way the whole board sorts, go to "My Preferences" in the side column then click on the General tab. There is a check box for "Sort topics by time of most recent post". I am not convinced this actually works, though, since everything seems out of order most of the time.

Thanks Cara!!!  Got this thread fixed, the others I'm ok with.

WW3 at my house earlier today LOL

P was here and I have told the boys and told the boys to clean their room, to pick out what they wanted to keep and the rest, there were 3 boxes in that they can put themin, and we would donate them. WELLLLLLL  P saw their room and went nuts, and he told them twice to sort the stuff out . . . . of course they didn't listen, so he got mad and packed everything up in the boxes and put it out on the porch and said it was going tomorrow. Both boys were bawling, and he said now maybe you will listen to your mother! I just sat back and laughed LOL

Yes he was here today, and will be back tomorrow and on Wednesday, so he says. . . . .he wants to spend time with them, fine by me. He is cordial to me, and isn't feeding me any lines so I'm good. 

Did I tell you all we now have a cat???  Yes, Smokey was a stray that came in andwouldn't leave, so we decided to keep him. He is sooo pretty. Here is him and Miss Sally:

It may only be 8:00 but I am soo ready for bed!

Well Good Morning Ladies!!!!  So nice to see so many of you back here!

Shelly that is a pretty kitty.  Nice to hear "P" is coming arund to see the boys and is being decent about it.  Hope he keeps it up.

So we did make it to the park last night to see the Christmas light display.  It is the kind you drive through and it was fun.  We went to PF Chang's first for dinner.  Shelly talking about her birthday dinner got my mouth watering for Chinese food!  After the park we stopped for a night cap at a local place and shared an order of meatballs.  Then we hit Stew Leonard's before they closed and got the rest of the food I needed for tonight and tomorrow.  It was heavenly because there was hardley any one in the place so we could just zip in and out.  I just need to get going this morning to the Italian bakery for the stuffed breads.  I got a lot done yesterday so the rest of today will be pretty easy.  Like Daisy, I hope my company tonight does not stay too late but I have a feeling some of them will.

I had a great time at my swim team thing.   It's always great to see that group.   We're doing it again Wednesday night.

I got up early today, could not go back to sleep, so I went out and got the few things I was lacking.   I started at Starbucks to get espresso to dunk lady fingers in for my tiramisu.   And of course that meant I needed a mocha for me.   And a bag of fresh coffee beans for my mom.  In looking at stocking loot, DD was way short.  So I went to Rite Aid and got her some lip gloss, Chapstick, and a mascara.   I also needed Draino.   My bathroom sink is backing up a lot. 

Now I am home and getting ready to cook.

Shelly, glad to hear P has showed up.  I am sure the boys were happy to see him.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Tracy, I just noticed I need some stocking stuffers. Eeek! Walgreens here I come.  I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas! I will continue to pray for the family members who are having health problems. May you have peace and memories this season.

Tracy - here is the updated forecast!

Yup...I'm still in the 8+ area!  I'm glad I took Wednesday off of work, but a little worried about the drive in on Thursday!

I have all my food ready.  We're hitting church at 3pm today and then the madness begins!  I made a cheeseball for mom's tonight.  I had to "dress" them up a little and used the cookie cutters!
