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.

I'm here.  Busy Monday morning in the office.  John started work this morning.  He was nervous and excited.  He's out on a delivery right now.  I hope he's back for lunch. :)

I wonder what Renee's "surprise" will be!

Sandy, how do you even pronounce a name like that?

Good Morning ladies!

Tracy your week is exhausting, at least you can tell us about Prom and the people who end up looking terrible or s k a n k y. Apparently that word is profanity....

Sandy good job working out when sick! Thats dedication:-)

I have been so tired, I read just about everyday but I have either nothing to say or am too lazy to go thru the hassle of posting. I can see the teeth coming in on Garrett's gums, he has been a terror. Apparently there is an FDA warning against benzocaine so baby orajel is out now, so I have been feeding him tylenol and advil. Teething tabs don't work. Its been a nightmare. Garrett screamed himself to sleep twice last night, I mean seriously he was so tired he just needed to sleep and nothing I did helped him so I just walked away and closed the door. I did give him a pillow tho so he was more upright and that seemed to help....

Evey has schoool today and I am going to clean while she is there. I might go out this afternoon with mom and leave the baby and Evey with my dad....I need a break so bad.

Morning Ladies -

Mel great job on the clean out and great way of getting rid of stuff - give to MIL so she can toss it - love it! 

Tracy I keep meaning to ask you - do you like baseball????  LOL!  Oh my those are late nights.  I don't know how you do it.  It is way too cold around here to be playing ball that late at night.  Heck it is way too cold to be playing ball around here!  No opening windows and letting any spring air into the house either - if I did we would be wearing our coats in the house like Jeff does!!!!

So it was rather quite around here over the weekend.  Was everyone busy???

Renee - congrats to Molly.  Does she get a pay increase for passing the test or is it that she just gets to keep her job?  Perhaps that is the announcement that I was expecting -   ummm - wait a minute - nope - stay tuned for somehthing bigger and better coming from Renee soon!

Missy have you gotten your husband out of the house and into his own office completly now???

Guss how is the new computer?   Everyone ok in your house?

Shelly any news coming from your neck of the woods?

Mel have you come up with any girl names yet?  They just showed a new baby on the local news today - her name is Calliope Viola - you won't be able to use that one it's already taken! 

Where the heck is Miss Daisy been hiding????  Hope everything is ok in her househould.

Susan's been pretty quite this weekend too. Hmmmmm -

It's me again.  Happy Monday.   Not really.   The week ahead is exhausting to me. 

Monday:   Softball game at 7:30, Varsity is playing first tonight.   Baseball game at 7:30.   Ot course it's one of two games all season where the V team plays first, making it so I can't see both games.   I am stepping out of the box and going to DS's baseball game.   I miss way too much of his stuff.

Tuesday:   Softball game- be there at 5:00 and we will be home around 10:00

Wednesday:   Baseball game at 7:30- be there at 6:30 and we'll be there until about 10:00

Thursday:   Home softball game so I have to be there at 3:30 to open the concessions stand.   We'll get home around 10:00.

Friday:   First round of softball tournament

Saturday:   Minimum of 2 softball games, times unknown for now, baseball game at noon, and I have to work our school's Prom that night.

Not going to be a really fun week.

Great job on the clean out, Mel.   I love your plan of giving it to your MIL with the intent of getting rid of it.  I remember you telling us about the grill in the living room.   Is that still there (please say no)?   What about a nursery?   How are you planning on decorating the baby's room? 

I didn't have a theme at all.  I have always hated pastel colors.  Always.  All I knew is that I wanted bold, primary colors in there; boy or girl.   I got solid colored bedding, all in contrasting primary colors, and I sponge painted numbers and letters on the wall, in red, yellow, blue, and green.  

Sandy, great job on working out despite feeling sick.   I ran for 40 minutes today during DD's practice.   It was a little over 3 miles.   I told you, I am very slow.  

I washed the window sills in Pine-Sol this morning and left the windows open when I left for her practice.  It smells great in here now.   I am here having a beer or two.   I love a nice, sunny day.   It could be warmer (60) but it's better than cold and rainy.

Cara I don't know how I do it either.  I will say I dragged myself there but once I got going I was jumping around like a jack rabbit.  I really like the Sunday morning instructor.  She use to teach dance so she has good music and fun stuff.  Our warm up this morning was to a Michael Jackson medly number - fun - fun - fun.

I hate the kind of stress you are having.  You know the kind that wakes you up in the middle of the night making your mind race.  I always try to tell myself there is nothing I can do till the morning so I should sleep.  Doesn't always work.  Actually most times it doesn't work - lol!  I still try to talk myself into trying to let it go.

Way to go on the Zumba, Sandy. I don't know how you do it.

Ugh. I am totally in a funk because of work, and I am having a hard time pulling out of it. My principal totally dumped on me on Thursday, and now I am not sleeping.

I am hosting a choral contest at the church next to my school on Wednesday, which is not helping my stress level either. I think I have everything organized and ready to go, but I keep waking up at night and worrying about that, too. At least that will be over after Wednesday. Well, I will have bookkeeping stuff to finish up afterwards, making sure the piano tuner, the audio guy, judges, and the church all get paid, as well as submitting receipts for the judges lunch and other expenses. That shouldn't be too big a deal, though.

good afternoon ladies.  went out to MIL's for supper last night.  marinated pork chops on the grill.  YUM!

the girls went to church and then to breakfast with my parents this morning.  I got a pineapple and canteloupe cut up, the meatballs for supper mixed and rolled up and I have a batch of homemade BBQ sauce on the stove simmering. meatballs will just be in gravy tonight and then I'm going to throw the bbq sauce in the crockpot with some ribs this week.

Been on the cool side here, but at least they're not talking about too much rain this week.  We're pretty soggy from the last 2 weeks.

hello ladies! :)

MIL came over yesterday and helped us clean up a little bit! Oh the joys of living with a hoarder! LOL. I was able to toss out quite a bit of stuff! ( pretend to give it to MIL, and shes going to toss it for me.... shhhhhh lol)

Off again today, did some housework, and finally hemmed my other pair of work pants(I use hemming tape) Hoping to vacuum today, but that will have to wait till DH wakes up...

Cara- ouch on the UTI! hope the antibiotics kick in soon!

Sandy- hope you are feeling better soon! good job on going to zumba!

Tracy- I agree with Sandy! DD looks all grown up!
