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.

I thought we were concentrating on the margaritas and maybe Cara was knocking one back for Gaye's birthday.

I wondered why Sandy posted the Pugs drinking marguaritas too!  LOL 

Sounds good, Cara... you will have to let us know what you ordered!

I am ready to go to bed... It is ridiculous... not even 8:00 pm yet and I've been ready for quite a while.  But then again, I wake up at 4:00 am too.  Oh well... I had my mammogram today and then took some chili to my mom, came home and ate.   Such an exciting life!

Oh my goodness... the 2 guys who died skydiving in Florida when their shoots didn't open were in Zephyrhills, FL... that is where my parents have a place!  That must have been horrible for those jumpers!!!  I cannot imagine.

Amber had me pick up 4 loaves of Italian bread at the bakery down my road (Aldo's) and it's driving me crazy in the kitchen... I want to dig in to it sooo bad!  LOL  She is taking it to work tomorrow because they are celebrating Doctor's Day.  I told her she got lucky only having to bring in bread and salad dressing!  I also told her if there is any left to BRING IT HOME!!!  Craving some toasted w/butter on it!

Well, I'm going to text Ash and tell her to let me know when she gets home cuz I am going to bed.  Good night, gals.... hope everyone has a good night sleep!

I ordered the Dungeness mac and cheese, of course! We also had the coconut fried King crab strips. Those were not as good as they sounded like they would be. I did have a glass of Chard with lunch, Sandy. Totally felt like I was playing hooky. Unlike the rest of you, our weather was beautiful - sunny and 62 degrees. Chandlers is right down on Lake Union, so a pretty view, too.

Signed our papers and got the good news that we needed to stop our April auto-pay on the mortgage, and that we don't start payments on the new loan until May - we are free of our house payment for a month!

Called the therapist today, first available appointment is April 12th!!! At least we will be seeing Dr. Larry on Monday when we got to clinic.Labs looked better today, potasium and bicarb were good, but his blood count was down to 7.2. I have no idea what to dowith this child!!!!

T-Ball practice is Tuesday's and Thursday's from 6-7. And I am so excited for him to start. His dad called tonight and I told him and he was excited too. He wrecked and totaled his truck a few weeks back. said if he had had his seat belt on, it would have killed him.  He was going to his moms house, up a little one lane road and got over too far on the edge and the bank gave way and he rolled it a couple times over the hill.

Headed to the big town tomorrow - Charleston- going to get the oil changed in the car, lunch out with my momma. We are going to hit up Habachi's Japanese Steak House. And then we will hit up the Dollar Tree so I can pick up some stuff for the Easter parties at school and the boys baskets. Then Waylon's teacher will be here to start his teaching.

Daisy ~ I may have missed, but how is your mom doing?

Mel ~ How is your "morning" sickness coming along?? 

Sandy ~ How is your dad doing?

Tracy ~ 7 days of soft ball!?!?! DEDICATION I tell ya!!!

Renee and Susan (andanyone else that got snow) How are you all doing???  We didn't get anything here,but it has snowed and blowed around all day, and it was COLD. YUCK!!!  I am soooo ready for the REAL spring to start!!!!

Pug is simply "pig" misspelled.  Of course they ate your mac and cheese, Cara!

Heading in two hours early - to clean... GM is visiting today =)..

OMG I am sick of this weather... It was fine again in our city then the closer we got to work yesterday - black ice again... and Maggie was driving... 25 mile an hour ! We came up on an accident- a guy from work rolled his Jeep Liberty.. They took him away in the ambulence.  He is ok but his jeep is totaled. We were 4 minutes late..  Last week a guy from third shift crossed the center line and hit a car head on.. He died 15 mins after leaving work =(..  Have I mentioned I don;t like March ?

Today looks clear out there !  And with the snow falling yesterday where we were going to see a race Sat- they cancelled.  There is another option  - Florence Kentucky.  We are spolied with our track prices- We pay $12 for grandstand and $20 for pits- the one in Kentucky is $22 for grandstand.... $20 for pits.

Gaye I tried to post yesterday.. Glad your daughter went back and visited.. I would have !

Awesome in the refi and lunch Cara !

OUCH on the $ and 7 days a week practice..

Well I need to motor..

Happy Tuesday !  Two more work days =)..

Renee, you are not to travel that close to me when I am out of town.   I would meet you in Florence.   That's close to the OH/KY border.   April 13th is wide open.   Baseball plays early that morning.

Shelly, how much of Waylon's issues are controlled by him?   I am ignorant to the whole thing.   Are his wacky numbers afflicted by something he is or isn't doing?   Or are they just happening with no real reason?    Where is he going when you are in Charleston?   Don't tell me his dad is going to keep him?   If so, will that be the first time ever P has kept him for any sort of extended time?   How's the job thing going for P?   Does he have to apply for a new job or is he waiting for the Union to find him an assignment? 

I saw on the news where one year ago to the day it was 80° here.   Um, it's supposed to be hing of 39° today with those never-ending snow flurries.   SO over it!   At least nothing is sticking.  Our graduation schedule was released last night.   Baring no more snow days (which would be a cruel joke this late in the year) our last day is May 24th.   That means we have graduations to work all that Friday night and all day Saturday, yes the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.   At least it's over after that. 

Well, off to go check email to see if they have called off tonight's softball game.   This is going to be loads of fun trying to reschedule all these games.   Stupid snow flurries.   And cold.
