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.

Well we are still "buried alive" so to speak.  Still can't get out the garage, off the front porch our out onto the deck.  They do have payloaders out there right now so hopefully the driveway will get cleared.  I am going to try and tackle some of the back deck.  we also have to get some off of the roof over the front porch.  The way it connects to the house the snow piled about a foot high up against the windows in the guest bedroom.  When that melts it can leak inside and down the walls.  Happened to us once before and we didn't have as much snow out there.  

UGH - my body still hates me from all the cleaning I did yesterday.  Well I won't have to worry about getting enough exercise in this weekend - lol!

A lot of the side roads here still have not even been cleared.  We got one heck of a lot of snow and this is New England.  We are use to snow and have had 3 feet plus on the ground but we don't usually get it all in one storm.

Tracy you are a true friend.  We have had apartments left in condition like that.  It is just gross.

Well of course you had the windows open yesterday Tracy =)..  The bleach smell and the yuck smell!

We had renters like that- unbelievable.... Glad you are there to help.

It was sunny here yesterday too- suppose to be 42* .. I see grass showing on the lawn.

Sandy OH my ... Thats all I can say !  I am so glad you didn't lose power.. And did I hear another one was heading your way?  Oh my ...

Well I didn't find any number 17's last night.. I wish I could say thats all I lost. Glad it was set aside $. And I worked OT Friday and again tomorrow and we get a $25 bonus on next weeks check. 

I did play 017 and 117 mid-day yesterday BUT I guess I should have played it 4 digit instead:

(Tell me again Sandy- I promise I will listen better !!!)

Tracy, just looking at the pictures makes me want to shower. What a pig he was! You are a great friend! I can't imagine her husband not helping.

The SEC seem to get all the good players. We are Big Ten fans but we do like Vanderbilt.  Nebraska looks like they had a good recruiting day.

Sandy, have they called off schools? Our city would be paralyzed with that much snow. Stay warm.

Mel, did they call off work again?

Good Morning Ladies:-) Tracy you are a true friend! That house looks like a hot mess.... Sandy hope you can get out of the house soon, I would go stir crazy being snowed in.... Susan I hope Brooks had a good birthday! Way to go Maggie! I bet she is excited to have a car again! I have church this morning and then David is going to ruck with a friend. He is going to try to make the try outs for the 21st WMD unit in NM so hopefully they will let him cancel his ALC if necessary and let him go. Prayers please!!! Omg, my husband is really getting on my nerves, I am totally PMSing still(thank you IUD) and he acts like a total tool....I need a physical for the EFMP screen for Germany, but tomorrow I have to take Evey to the orthopedist for a follow up about her neck, and he is trying to tell me he can take her instead so I can go get a physical, UMMMM no he doesn't even know what the heck is going on...so how could he take her? And tell the doctor what? I don't really know what is going on? Ugh, Evey's won't even be done and filled out until probably Friday, so its not like I am behind the curve or anything... Alright I am going to go shower and calm my hormones.

Sandy, I think I have probably mentioned this here before, but I have never minded shoveling snow. I actually kind of like it. If I were in your complex I'd come over and take care of your deck.

Guss, when is the Germany deadline?   I mean the date you will know if you all are going or not.  So much stress there.   I hope the PMS stops soon.

I am so happy everyone is coming around a lot again.   I love it.

I went over and helped my friend for another 2 hours this morning. She was bragging on how much better it smelled today. Um.... in what universe? It still makes me want to puke. I have no idea what she is thinking unless it's just no choice but to be super optimistic. She started the bathroom today while I scrubbed light fixtures, ceiling fan blades, and the kitchen cabinets. They are encased in so much nicotine. Even after scrubbing with hot bleach water I could run a paper towel over the cabinet doors and they were yellow.

Tracy I hope you were wearing rubber gloves and had shoe covers on!  BELCH!!!!

I actually do not mind shoveling snow either.  Today the sun is out and it is in the mid 30's.  I took my jacket off because I got so hot shoveling.  John's shoulder is still not 100% and he was told no lifting. He pushed the snow off the roof over the front porch and then I cleaned up all the snow from it .  There was a LOT!  John was able to push the snow off most of the back deck so we are pretty well set.  We can get out now BUT there is no palce to really go.  Everything is pretty much shut down.  A lot of the side roads you still can't drive on without getting stuck.  I am guessing today will be a good clean-up day and tomorrow things shouldn't be too bad. EXCEPT - a wintery mix is headed our way for the AM turning over to all rain - YIKES!  We will need an Ark to get any where if that happens!

Oh Tracy, I would have needed a mask and gloves up to my shoulders. I'm gagging just looking at the pictures. I don't know how you did it. I'm guessing he didn't have a girlfriend. Ugghhhh

Sandy, I'm glad you got to dig yourself out some. Will you be able to go to work or do you get a day off?

Guss, sorry David is aggravating you so bad. Men have a way of doing that sometimes.
