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.

"If he gets that job, he will be working close to home so that means he will be home every night :)"

Anyone else just focus in on this??   So you all are officially living together, Shelly.   That's big news.  I hope he keeps behaving.

Fun times this morning.   I sign in.   “Web site cannot be found.”   I hit refresh and sign in again.   I got sent to the main iVillage Home page.   I sign in again.   Here I am.   Huge sigh….

I got my mammogram last week.   Got my all clear letter in the mail already too.   This week I knocked out my annual physical and I got my annual skin scan at the dermotologist.    Gynco visit done in January.   I’m good for the year.  

Snow blows.   So over it.   We still have a little on the ground, but all asphalt and concrete sidewalks are clear.  DD’s first softball game is Saturday.   They are supposed to scrimamge tonight.   I hope those go off without any weather interference.   They are still calling for 60° and sun by Saturday.   Today is only high of 38, so today’s game may not happen.  

I had a cool travel schedule change come up yesterday.   DS’s best friend’s grandfather is dying of cancer.   Cancer sucks.   There are 4 kids in that family.   They never travel in the spring because dad’s work won’t let them.  But since they might not get to see grandpa again, my friend is taking all 4 kids and heading south.   As I was picking up DS from her house last night she was saying it’s a long haul so they are leaving that Friday morning, kids missing school.   Long story short- so are we.   We got on the phone and got her a room at the same place we are staying on the FL/GA line for that night.   There is an indoor pool there so all 6 kids can swim.   Her hubby was very happy she’ll have a travel partner on the road.   We plan to leave at the same time and stop together.   He will meet them later in the week, so the drive home is taken care of.  They are an hour north of us in FL so we may even meet up at some point.

Morning Ladies -

Tracy I caught the "home" comment too.  Also caught the comment about taking away the video games.  Sounds like a joint parenting effort going on in that "home" also-CoolInnocent

Tracy said reason for the family's Florida trip but it does sound like a great way for her to travel.  All the kids should have a good time in that pool.  I can see pool/pizza party going on!

I am SO OVER SNOW too but alas we have snow/slush on our roads and this storm will not end till Friday afternoon.  UGH!

Good Morning ladies!

I tried to open the wednesday supper thread, but the page kept jumping... so I gave up, and it let me open this thread first go! geez

I stayed up late( well late for me now LOL 11pm) watching lipstick jungle on netflix, poor snoopy kept giving me the evil eye because he was tired! and his bed is the couch! lol

Im so over the snow too!!!

Renee- Im 12 weeks along now....

Shelly- I caught the home comment too! I hope he continues being nice to you! :)

Okay ladies opinions please.... Ive been invited( DH too of course) to a wedding reception( they got married a few months ago at the courthouse, and are having the reception next week) both of them are my co-workers.... I talk to the groom a fair bit, but not the bride, mainly because she doesnt speak alot of english.... but from what I can tell shes nice lol. Im pretty sure its going to be all in french( invitation was french) Hmmmmm I dont speak much french, plus I dont know any of their friends...

should I go? or not? I really dont wanna go.. but then again it might be a nice evening out, and I might learn some culture! lol ( shes from Guinea, and hes from the dominican republic) already told DH we dont have to stay all night.....I guess I cant wear jeans to this can I lol.

Mel - first trimester is in the books!  I know you're already going, but I would go just to make a presence.  You don't have to stay long.  And no, no jeans. :)

Tracy - nice travel plans Tracy! 

Nothing too exciting here.  We need to pack and get everything ready for tomorrow (reception/water park day).  DH will have the car packed when I get home and we'll jump in the car, get the girls from school and head out.

Tracy that is great you have a travel companion!

Mel I would go to the wedding, and NO jeans is right!! LOL

Nothing too exciting going on here. Its supposed to be in the 60's today so I told Evelyn we would go to the park....

David might have a VIP next week, so I will have two days to myself, PRAY FOR IT LADIES. I love my husband but I am an Army wife too much time together makes me want to punch him LOL. Does that make me terrible?? Oh and pray instead of Germany we go to Virginia....PLEASE????

Garrett is sick, so he was up in the middle of the night, I am running on fumes, how did I do this for 4 months when he wasn't sleeping thru the night???
