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.

Believe me, I get plenty of oink notices too.

Hey, I forgot to tell you all this one.  I got a text from my ex on Tuesday telling me he was home from his FL trip a day early and he'd take care of getting DS to his baseball practice that night.   Um, I had a whole intricate system in place that day getting everyone where they needed to be, when they needed to be there.   I had to make a ton of calls to reshuffle all of it.   And then there is the obvious, who comes home from Florida a day early?    The answer to that is one that didn't go to FL.   He said there were issues with their flight so they ended up canceling, getting refunds and then they went to a KY state park for 3 nights.   He had been home since Monday morning.   What?    First off, the airlines don't give refunds, they give vouchers for a future flight.   Second, it was cold and rainy here last weekend.   What a crappy get-away.   And he had said they were going because his gf had a training she was attending for work.   I just shake my head because that's all I can do.   I don't believe a word out of his mouth.

Morning Ladies-

Renee hope Maggie is feeling ok today.  All 4 out at the same time - ouch.

Daisy hope it is just cyst for your mom too.

Tracy I'm the opposite of you for yesterday.  I ate more a lunch than I usually do because I thought I was having a light dinner plus exercising.  Change of plans late in the day = big dinner + no exercise = MFP warning of oink-oink-oink!

I hope Maggie is feeling okay today.

Ahhh... end of year field days.   I think DS's is next week.  I can't believe 2 weeks from today is it.

I woke up famished this morning.   I never wake up hungry.   I got to figuring- I had a 6" Subway sandwich last night about 6:00.   No chips with it, just the sandwich.   And I didn't have a huge lunch either.   I wish I had remembered to finish my My Fitness Pal entry yesterday.   It would have been one of those days with a warning that I wasn't eating enough.   I love those days.

I hope its a harmless cyst too...

Maggie got her 4 wisdom teeth out - she was puffed up quite big- but wouldn't let me take a pic .. She was a trooper !

It took only and hour and a half- we stopped and get her pills filled and i brought Amyah home with me. Maggie took today off.

Ahh Missy I loved helping at school  =)..

Ugh on the late night / long days Tracy- Hope you get some me time this week-end !

Renee, why are you in Ann Arbor?

I had to take my mom to have an ultrasound after her chemotherapy today because the dr. thinks he found a new lump.  I can't figure that out since the other 3 tumors have decreased so much in size that he can hardly feel them at all.  Weird...   I hope it's just a harmless cyst...

Sandy, the wedding is June 8th.  Ashleigh, Sheryl and I are leaving on Wednesday June 5th and will return Wednesday June 12th.  My hubby, Amber, Nick and the kids are leaving Thursday, June 6th and will return Monday, June 10th... a really quick trip for them.  Amber wanted to stay longer but Nick and my hubby do not have much vacation time.  I'm glad my hubby is going with them, not sure how much help he will be but I am glad he will be with them traveling with 2 toddlers, or whatever a 1 & 2 year old are called nowadays. 

My parents are leaving Tuesday, June 4th and returning Tuesday June 11th.  It is going to be CWAZY in that house... Amber, Nick and the kids will be in a Drury Inn closeby but the rest of us, including Sheryl and my parents will be at Susan's. 

My BIL's sister, who lives about 3 miles from me, is flying in for the wedding but she is going to stay at a hotel too.  Her husband cannot go so I think Jim is going to flee to her room to get some rest... lol.  It's okay with her, she loves it... she's about 13 years older than him and I think she dotes on him like a mother would.... and I think HE loves that although he always acts like it gets on his nerves.

Well, I need to leave in about 15 minutes to take my mom for her 4th chemotherapy treatment.  I sure hope she doesn't talk the whole time again... but I think she will.  i don't know what she takes to make her so talkative but, she mumbles the whole time because of the meds they give her which make her sleepy.  I really hope and pray that she just gives in and goes to sleep instead of fighting it talks for another 7 hours today! 

I know that there are a few of you that would love to hear your mother mumbling for 7 hours ... sorry about that... i do not mean to sound uncaring and of course I love her. 

Sorry I didn't get to say everything I wanted to, but I have to finish up a flyer and run copies of it before I leave.  Have a great day gals... I will try to check in on y'all with my kindle at the dr. office.
