Q&E Babble
Fri, 12-21-2012 - 7:34am

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.

Okay, that PT is tough, Guss.   I get up at 4:20 to do it, then work all day.   I then run a house by myself, with 2 kids.  And I am over 40 and fat.   If I can do this, a young in-shape man sure can do it.  But then again, I am a woman and that makes all the difference :-)   I will say, am exhausted by 9:00.  

Off to go clean out the concession stand.   Fun times.   I got the grocery shopping done last night and the beer cheese made.   The list is slowluy getting ticked off.   I can do this.

I hate when I see a typo and I'm on my phone where I can't fix it. I do know how to spell slowly. Where is everyone?

I am here.  Just got her but I'm here.  I slept in this morning then had to rush around to get ready to pick up my Dad.  I took him out for a late breakfast, made a few stops with him and then dropped him off back home.  Went and got my eyebrows shaped and did some shopping (not groceries).  Came home, took the dog out, put away some stuff, tossed in a load of laundry, checked my emails etc. and now I need to think about what to make for dinner.

Ahh Gaye =)...

Shelly what a mess you are going through with Waylon- the girls have all said some very good advice. One thing they didn't mention.. When I am not sure what to do and have tried all my options I tell God I just cant do it anymore- you take it from here =).. Looking back on Miss Maggie that is pretty much what i did- And am happy to say it worked. Just a thought...

Tracy no fun on sitting outside... 

Missy did Kelsie get a grade on Jupiter yet?

Susan having a quiet week-end? 

Sandy just curious are your taxes done? Is he been working week-ends?

Gus sorry you have had some rocky days- When Molly and Maggie were little- (they are 13 months apart) I started giving them 'rinse downs' in the tub.. run the water, pour it over their heads, shampoo, soap em up, rinse conditioner, soap em up rinse. get out. Much quicker then a bath =).. I did everything so anything to speed up my evening... Funny the other day Casey called me and said Amyah just told her she was gonna get a rinse down =).. 

Mel when do we all find out if its pink or blue?

Well I still don't care for March- My Mom and Dad both died in March- and Wednesday I found out an Aunt on my Moms side died.. Born and raised in NY the funeral was there.. they had 22 inches of snow this past week so no we didn't go. Lost track of my Moms family but have found some cousins and we are now friends through facebook- 

On a better note John and I will be celebrating 27 years of marriage this coming week=).. A customer gave us a gift card for Lonestar so we will go there ! He wants to go to a race in Indiana next Sat night so hopefully it won't be freezing ! 

Amyah got student of the month and Kynsie got kicked outa school for the second time .. Complete BS- so Molly pulled her outa that school and she started a different one Friday and she went to the Dr and is going to get some kind of medicine for her .. I have known for a long time and tried to get her to go to a Dr but no one wants to admit their child has a problem- she is just very hyper and probably just needs a small dose to get her in control so she can focus and learn. 

I read but just havent had a whole lot of time to reply- I worked today and tonight am doing NOTHING! My day starts around 3:15 and Dominic is here 2-3 nights a week till 11, glad John takes over at 9 ! Though he usually goes to sleep around 8 and sleeps till she gets here. 

Everyone enjoy your Sat night !

LaughingMorning Ladies -

Renee yes John is working on the weekends and no our taxes are not done yet.  I am glad Molly took your advise and got some help for Kynsie.  You are right when you say it can be hard to think there might be something wrong with your child. 

Hey Tracy are you packed yet?

Hey Guss have you packed up David yet?  Just kidding-lol!

Mel when do you find out if it is pink or blue or are you not going to ask?

Good morning. My day flew by yesterday. I worked for 2 hours helping to clean out the concession stand. It was nasty. Then I got home, changed, and DD and I left for the ball park. It was 11:10. We got home at 6:40. It was nice, not cold. I actually got sun on my face. I think it was up to 58°. Not great, but better than today. It's rainy and cold out today, with a prediction of snow overnight. ARG!! I then grilled us hamburgers for supper, started laundry, and got the dessert made for our family dinner tonight. I found The Blind Side on TV. The kids had never seen it. We watched it, all 3 hours of it. Love that movie.

Renee, I remember you saying a long time ago you though K needed medication. Glad Molly is open to that now. I did it with DS about this time last year. I had to fight the ex tooth and nail on it but I won. DS isn't hyper, but so distractable. He wasn't finishing tests and bringing home loads more homework than his friends. They were finishing in class. The medication has helped him focus.

As for the school suspending Kynsie twice, that is horrible. I cannot imagine. She is 5 or 6. Suspension is not an appropriate consequence. I can't figure out how the school thinks that it is. I hope the new school is a better fit.

And happy anniversary week!

Mel, I'm a little confused on your vacation falling through. If E's house sells you aren't going because you'll have no place to stay and if it doesn't sell by June, you will go? Is that right? If you can't stay with him do you have any other ideas? I think vacations are important. Everyone needs a getaway.

Off to start cleaning. Today I have to clean, fold and iron (laundry is all washed), put clothes away, go to the library, get my toes done, get DS's history project done, and pack for FL. Supper is at my parent's house. I can do this.

Both my boys are on ADD meds, too - neither of them have the hyperactive part either, but it sure helps them focus in class. We don't give it to them unless they are going to school - or, like yesterday when Riley needed to focus on his science fair project.  It isn't the answer for every kid, and I totally understand why parents don't want to medicate, but most of the kids I have talked to about it (the hyper ones, especially) WANT to feel in control of themselves, and it makes all the difference.  Kindergarten/first grade does seem early, but if she is not able to function in the classroom, it may be what she needs. Better to get her on track now than wait and let her fall behind. A good doctor makes a difference - it can take a lot of trial and error to find the right med and dose, and you have to really keep an eye on sleep/eating and growth.

I don't understand the suspension thing, either. Who suspends a kindergartner??? Unless she was actually beating up on other kids, or constantly harrassing them, I can't imagine that happening in my district. And she would have been sent to the site team (school psychologist, special ed, counselor and classroom teacher) to  try different interventions and possibly recommend testing for services long before it got to the point of suspension. If the parent refused testing and the interventions weren't working.... maybe.

Sounds just like my son, Cara.   I bet they take the same thing.   I only medicate Daniel on school days too.   It's an 8-hour dose and when it's gone it's gone.  He likes it.   He says he does better when he takes it.  

Hey Renee, I saw this on FB the other day and meant to give you an atta girl.   Molly was venting on having to leave her babies to go to work and Casey chimed in with this, "I question it too Moll, especially when I was working two jobs and going to school. It sucks forsure, but you know us Bailey's, we were raised to work for what we got."   I loved it.   You did good, Mom.
