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.

Morning Ladies -

Yup Renee it is Friday!

 

Well we have snow falling from the sky this morning.  The thick white stuff with lots of water in it so it is heavy!  Ride into work should be fun.  It will also be fun seeing who shows up in the office today and of course snow = grumpy old folks calling wanting to know when they will get their cars shoveled out.  Ummm - how about you just don't worry about it since you should not be out on the roads you crazy people!

I hit the sign in link.   I was not authorized to view that page.   So I hit refresh.   Website not found.   Three times.   On the fourth time I was able to get back to iVillage and the sign-on link came up.   Finally.   I logged on.   And waited.   Nothing.   I hit refresh and signed on again.   And now, six attempts later, I am here.   I am weary.

We finally made it to the weekend.   I couldn’t be happier.   It was exercise skip day.   That said, I am going dancing tonight so that will count.   I love putting on my boogie shoes.

Enjoy those grumpy calls, Sandy.   Our snow is almost gone.   Just some hanging around in corners.   I hope that was winter’s last hurrah here.   They are still saying 60° and sun for tomorrow.   I’ll take it.   DS has baseball practice and DD has a softball game.

Renee, I’m home after the first week of April.   Tell him you want to find a race in KY then.   I’ll join you!

I saw where Shelly got admitted into a room around 11:00 last night.   It doesn’t sound like Waylon has been feeling sick, so that is good.   Hopefully this is a quick visit.

Hello ladies from our room at the hospital.  Waylon isn't feeling bad, but his labs are showing some scarey numbers. So hopefully, they can pump him full of IV fluids and his numbers can come up and hopefully stay up.

Ok, Mel, I have to ask, you have maternity shoes????

Tracy ~ I am jealous of yourdate night out dinner and dancing! Sounds like fun!

Sandy ~ Grrrr to the grumpies!!

Waylon went to the play room with Joe, and I am headed to the cafeteria to get a salad and something else. :) Enjoy!!!

My aunt had a scare with my grandma last night. My aunt from WI came in yesterday to give my mom and other aunt a break. Anyways, she woke up at 3am and couldn't find my grandma. She went out to the living room and found her on the floor with a pillow. Don't know how she got there. My grandma can't walk without her walker and that was still next to her bed. My grandma can't remember why she went out there. I hope this was a fluke. Ususally there is no one with her at night so we don't know if this is what has been happening or not. We shall see. My aunt had to call 911 to get my grandma off the floor. She can't get up herself and she was too heavy for my aunt to get her up. They checked her out and everything was A-ok so I don't know. So sad this is happening.

Shelly hope your stay in Pitt is short and sweet!

Missy the interesting thing about your grandma to me is she had her pillow with her.

Well how about this one - just got off the phone with the local police department - one of our resident's was moving her car back to her parking space after we cleared the snow and ran right into her apartment!  Oh joy!  The Officer said she thought it might have been driver error but now thinks it could have been mechanical failure.  Either way she can't stay in her apartment.  Wonder where she plans to sleep tonight - lol!

Oh Gaye I'm so happy for Mr. RooBen (and his new owner)!!!! 

I am sitting here being bored out o fmy skull I've played games, read my book, talked to mom and P. Went for a walk around the floor. I could go to bed,but I'm not really tired enough, I know I would just lay there.  I brought some nail polish so I will paint my toe nails. . . .

Waylon got an NG tube placed and the "clean out" meds given earlier, he will have a colonoscopy tomorrow sometime.  This poor child has just been through so much, itjust breaks my heart!!! I also miss home, P, Sally, Smokey and my baby Jeffrey.  

Ok, enough blubbering, off to paint my toes!

Missy, my daughter is good friends with her hair stylist, who co-owns an upscale salon.  Daughter colors her hair and spends a lot, and Carlos does Courtney's hair, too.  Courtney is a redhead.  Carlos thinks my daughter and her daughter are gorgeous, so he asked Courtney to do the photoshoot.  He has other connections, so we might see Courtney in a Neiman's ad or a Nordstrom's ad some day.

Here is Christine's glamor shot.  (Trust me, she doesn't look anything like this when she gets up in the morning Wink

Christine LeBoutillier Gray

Those of you on FB know that DFW Pug Rescue took in 37 pugs and four other breed dogs from a puppy mill that closed down.  Because of the "all hands on deck" call, I volunteered to take another foster.  Yesterday, I drove to Keller to pick up Gemini, brought him home, put Roo Ben in the car and drove him to West Fort Worth for his recheck at the vet clinic.  Roo Ben was declared healthy enough to be adopted, and an adopter was waiting in the wings for him.  I said good-bye to Roo Ben about noon today.  He has gone to Shreveport, LA, with his new family.  He will be the companion and only pet for a 37-year-old mentally-challenged man who lives in the guest cottage on his parents' property.  He is high-functioning, and has a part-time job, so he is capable of caring for Roo Ben.  They loved each other instantly.

Gemini is a four-year-old male who is doing so well for a dog who has spent his life in a cage.  He is friendly and loving, and Jabaar is helping me housetrain him.  He has pottied outside three times today!  I will post pictures separately.
