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.

Renee, I love a long recap.   Thanks.   Sounds like all your girls are doing well.   I bet Casey listens to you on the taxes next year.  

Mel, yeah, I hope you get more than $4 back.   That's pitiful.   Go take that nap.   Once the twins are here your napping days are over.   Is DH going to keep working third shift once they are here?   If so, not having anyone to share those sleepless nights with will be hard.  Especially when you have to get up for work the next morning. 

I have been to DS's game, got his baseball number, my dad took RA to softball practice, and I have been to the grocery store.   Getting ready to go to Krogers for the stuff Wal Mart didn't have, pick up RA, come home for lunch and head to the baby shower.

Well I am home from visiting my Dad, grocery shopping (all put away too) and my eye brow appointment.  Just took the dog out and fed him.  Got to get ready so that when John gets here we can dash out the door to go pick up the in-laws.  It's always an early dinner when we take them out.  Perhpas I should put my blue hair on???

Got my house cleaned up. Floors swept and steam cleaned and 3 loads of laundry done. Tomorrow we are going to the Sportsman show with mom and dad (campers and boats and all of that kind of stuff). Looking forward to a day out.

Shelly, I love those shows. Jeff and I salivate over the $300,000 campers.They look awesome. I'd love to retire and tour the continent in one of those.

Don't get me wrong, I'd take a boat too.

Quiet weekend around here. I was busy all day yesterday. DD's softball thing was great. They sent the girls into the locker room and the parents into the main portion of the field house. They had a black drape covering the door so you couldn't see in. They had the lights off, strobes going, and music thumping. Parents got pom-poms and noisemakers. There were balloons all over and all the girls' names were on the wall written in those funky colored duct tapes. One girl, one of the girls that had attended one pre-tryout practice and made the team anyway because she is a great athelete, was 45 minutes late so we waited for her. Nice. The mom said the girl fell asleep and then took her time in the shower. And the mom was okay with this. Should go well with her. We parents were not happy. They should have started without her.

The girls got introduced and were all in matching shirts, with all their names on the back. We saw an inspirational sports video then all the coaches talked. For a long time. Then all the seniors spoke. All 7 of them. This was also a potluck supper. By this time it was 8:45. It has started at 6:45. We ate and left. My DD was very happy though so that was good.

The worst part of the night was getting the uniform list. She is required to purchase $285 worth of uniform pieces. That's not the actual uniform either. That's provided by the school. She'll have three sets: maroon, white, and black. I have to buy her a t-shirt in 3 colors, practice pants, practice shorts, a hoodie, a nylon V-neck pullover with her name on it, 4 pairs of socks, 2 belts, long sleeved t-shirts, Under Armour cold gear in white and black, Under Armor heat gear in white and black, a warm-up jacket, in 2 different colors, with her name on it. And the list goes on. They are required to look alike travelling to games. I take donations :-)

I am getting ready to go help my friend paint her nasty house.

Good Morning ladies!

Didnt end up going back to bed for a nap... had coffee and watched netflix instead lol. went to the in laws around 3pm... the snow/rain started in the middle of the night.... was freezing rain when I took snoopy out this morning.... now the weather network is saying 25-35 cms of snow( almost a foot!) for today.

I guess I drank too much last night, and got up 3 times to pee, instead of my usual 2 times grrrrrrr. so will be napping today, because I slept like crap!

Im not sure whats happening with DHs work when the baby is here, Im hoping he looks for a day job when Im on maternity leave, and Im really hoping I can get my drivers licence before then too....

Tracy- glad you had fun at the softball thing! Boo on waiting for the girl who fell asleep!

Tracy such is the price of fame I guess right?  I agree with you on they should have started with out the prima donna!

I was wondering where Daisy has been hiding too.  Have not heard from her in sometime now.

Well I am back from the "Y" - showered - just need to get some clothes on and get out the door.  Bunch or errands to run then back home to tackle the laundry. Such a fun Sunday I tell ya!

Oh my goodness, I'm awful. I was supposed to let you all know about Daisy. Sorry. I forgot. Daisy has been busy. The basement is still being worked on. Someone was coming this weekend to work on it. She has been busy at work doing office stuff for radiothong. She had to get a lot done because she took off Friday and went on a crafting weekend with Mary and Ashleigh. The cord for her laptop is broken so she can't get online. Hopefully she'll be back with us soon.

Hey Renee, Ray and I rented that movie last night too. Didn't expect all the drug use though.  Ick, makes me cringe.

Tracy, that is stupid expensive. I thought soccer was bad.

I was wondering about Daisy too. Thanks for the update.
