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.

Seriously Susan - be sure he documents all of this just in case they don't pay him all they owe him. A quick and simple trip to the Labor Department will get him everything he is owed in short fashion. The old boss won't be happy but that would be their problem not your John's. It happened to me once. I think they thought I would not bother to try and get my pay check - silly them!

The bad part is is that the boss (the husband) promises this stuff, but the wife (who does the books) doesn't follow through with it. Another excellent reason he is outta there!

Two words of advise Susan - LABOR DEPARTMENT! I would not trust her to pay him at all.

I feel like Im lost LOL  Im running here and there and everywhere and nowhere all at once LOL - Although I am NO WHERE near as busy as Tracy LOL

Yesterday Jeffrey woke up with an ear ache, he has had like 4 or 5 ear infections this winter so. . I sent Waylon to school and took Jeffrey to the doctor, no infection, just fluid build up. Zyrtec and Nasonex for 3 months to see how it goes.  

Came home and went to get mom and deliver some Yard Sale stuff, but my great Aunt showed up so I went and did the meet.  Came back and got mom and Jeffrey and did a grocery run. I spent almost $200 and we still have nothing to eat hahaha

Came home and did 2 loads of laundry, then the school called and said Waylon was staying over to get caught up on some of his work, so I had to go pick him up at 4:00, because he has meds due at that time or he could stay until 6:00 and ride the activity bus home.

I know, not an overly busy day, but I wanted to just crash all day. So this morning, put the boys on the bus and went back to bed, slept until 10:00! I am feeling much better now. Gonna tackle the boys room and get it scrubbed and straightened up. Gonna try to move them into thier own beds, see if that happens.

P went back to work Sunday evening, and worked yesterday. Got a text from him this morning, I was in bed at 730, dog tired, sorry I didn't call <3 u!  He is a changed man, and I NEVER thought I could be able to say that!!!

It is sunny and near 80 here today, I have on shorts!!! I am LOVING it!!!!

Her excuse every year is that they are still technically laid off, so they aren't back on weekly pay yet.  BUT, DH didn't file for unemployment this year because we worked at the pallet place and left there to go back to the dump truck job because they told him they would pay him more to come back...take a stab at what else didn't happen!!  She told him on Thurs it would be Fri, on Fri, it would be Sun, etc.  It will probably be ready today because DH wasn't going to go back to the shop till Fri.  He was going to be bringing the dump truck home because the job they're at is an hour from our house (in the opposite direction from the shop).

She has always been a b*tchly little thing to deal with.  2 weeks, I can do this!  lol

DH gave his notice last night.  He didn't get home from work until 7:30.  I can't wait until he has normal hours!  He'll start here on 4/22.  He seems excited to start something new.  I know he will enjoy all the extra perks that come with this company - OT pay, 401K, clothing allowance, etc.  He still doesn't have his check from last week...he's supposed to get paid on Thursdays.  Grrr.

Good Morning,

Busy day yesterday and today will be worse. I have a meeting after school that will keep me so late I will only have about an hour to get home and get DD fed before she has to be at the softball field. Oh well, we'll figure it out. Always do.

I could NOT go to sleep last night. I tossed and turned forever before I drifted off. DS apparently had the same problem. He came in my room about 11:30 and told me he couldn't sleep either. Not sure what's up with that.

It's supposed to be 80° here today. Happy Tuesday.

Morning Ladies -

Renee and Daisy it sounds like you both (and your DHs) are enjoying being kids again.  But of course that's what grandkids are for right? 

So Louisville won last night - sorry Tracy and Daisy - i had them to win but that's about it.  I think I came in somewhere around tied for 81st in John's office pool - rofl!  Tonight it will be all about our Lady Huskies!  Go Girls Go!
