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 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!

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

Great deal on the financing, Cara.   I looked up the menu at your restaurant.   I love reading menus, you know.   Dungeness Crab Mac and Cheese for me, please.   Mmmm....

We had snow flurries blow all day here.   No accumulation, but enough blowing around out there to be annoying.   And cold.   And cancel the softball game.   It's spring!   Where is my heat, and sun, and flowers?   This is no good at all.

Yup Renee, we got the white stuff.  DH was guessing about 7 inches.  My drive in this morning...

We bought a snow blower from my sister and BIL.  They moved to town and didn't need one as big as they had.  DH was out playing with it at 6am!  It's really heavy and wet snow, so it came in handy this morning!  All the school are closed around here and DH is home with the girls.  Oh Monday, I don't like you today...
