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.

No details to tell, yet. He hasn't even officially asked me yet. Although he did ask my dad if it was ok for him to ask me.  He also asked waylon if it was ok. Waylon said it would be "this summer" sometime when he asked.  I have no idea what kind of "wedding" we will have.  I would like to go somewhere, like Gatlinberg, TN


I think that would be so super romantic. Even though neither one of us is the least bit romantic LOL And I don't really see us having the whole big church wedding, but I want something to mark the day for us.

Guess everyone was having trouble posting today, the board sure was quiet!

Hey it's letting me post!

Missy - nice haul!  One of my sister's friends is having a garage sale during their community ones in a few weeks.  Most of my baby clothes will be there.  I just have to price things with my sister.  I don't have to do anything else except collect money!  Score. 

Sandy - big hugs.  I know what you mean about the time that goes by.  Joe would be 30 right now and it makes you wonder where he would be right now. 

Tracy - I've had that happen with a snake in my yard before.  I was taking old food to the fence line.  I've never dropped anything so fast and ran.  Holy Cow.  Oh and total d-bag on your ex's part. 

Renee - looks like Kynsie had a lot of fun!  I've never really understood the whole American Doll thing.  To me, it's an expensive doll.

Shelly - sounds like you're in planning mode.  Drop some more details, girl!

Good Morning ladies!

Renee- the tea party looks fun!! Kynsie is so big now!!

Tracy- Ugh on the douche bag ex... and yuck on the snake.... I would have screamed and ran away!

Morning Ladies -

So Shelly you have picked out and even purchased rings.  When is the big day?  Have you picked out a day, time and place yet?

Renee "K" is so big!  How did that happen?  Tea party looked so pretty.  I'll bet she had a lot of fun.

Missy that is a great total for a down pour rainy day sale.  Just wonder what you might have made if it wasn't raining.  Maybe less because people were looking for something to do????  Guess we will never know.

Tracy on the "S" I would have had a heart attack.  I can't even type the word I am so afraid of those critters even little ones like you said.  Pictures of them upset me.  Whenever one comes on the TV John always tells me not to look.  Even he knows how they freak me out.  As far as your EX's troll, well as they say there is someone for everyone.  Lucky for them.


Well two years ago today is when my Mom passed away.  It's funny how sometimes it feels like yesterday and other times it feels like it was forever ago.

That tea does look like fun, Renee.   I bet Kynsie had a great time.   She sure is cute.

I have never taken my DD to an American Girl place either.   As far as I know the closest one to us is in Chicago.   DD has 3 of the dolls and had a ton of the clothes.    She used to have a friend over to play with them.   I loved that.

Shelly, those are nice rings.   Who cares where it comes from.   As for your post, it was weird.   It showed for hours that Sandy was the last one who posted in Babble, but when I opened the thread I saw your post.   So weird.   I still hate the software change.

I got the kids fed last night, took DD to softball, came home and mowed the lawn.   I had one swipe to go and that's when I saw the snake.  He was right at my feet.   I screamed and ran off.   The neighbors were out and she made her hubby go get it for me.   The snake wasn't moving.   He was there right by my mower.   I threw a rock at him and it just sat there.   Granted, it was a small garter snake, but I was still freaking out.   The neighbor picked it up and stuff was dripping from it.   He said the snake was peeing.   SO gross!  

And then to end my night the kids mention being with me all weekend.   I was like, "no, Jeff and I have plans."   I haven't seen Jeff in days and I miss him.   Stupid constantly busy lifestyle.   Well, the kids inform me that their dad and his GF are leaving for FL on Friday and they are with me for a week.   HUH??   Nice notice.   He is the most self-absorbed, inconsiderate man ever.    I have plans.   I hope no one ever wonders why I divorced him.  He's awful.   I cannot imagine what the troll he dates sees in him.

Renee, so cute and all grown up. I've always wanted to take my girls to the American Girl store. We don't have one local.

Well, it looks like it is letting me post finally. Ridiculous board.

Yard sale was a rainy, wash out day but they still came out. Never have seen so many at a yard sale at once. We made $704. I call that a success!
