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.

Waiting on the car to warm up so I can head in.  We got around 6".  Most schools and daycares are closed today. 

Sandy - I hope your day is better today!

Tracy - I am jealous of the trips...did I mention I can conform to suit case size!  lol  Key West sounds awesome!  My idea of vacation is relaxing by the pool or lake and doing nothing.  The idea of Disney has never appealed to me because running all day doesn't sound like vacation to me.

Well I better get my cereal finished up and get going...I'm expecting my 30 minute drive to be 60 today.

Susan, the window was finally replaced last Monday. So happy to be able to see out of that window again.

Sandy, I hope you have a better day today. That was nice of your dh to take you out to eat.

Tracy, I was sure we'd have a snow day too but was surprised Kelsie went. We got a dusting. It is going to be a cold one today but it will warm up in the 70's by the weekend. Woo hoo!

Mel, do they know what is causing the toothache? That is crazy you have to suffer through it.

You're all welcome to join at any time ;-)   Jeff and I would welcome nightlife company.   The B&B we are staying in has a nightly happy hour.   I have been all over the Trip Advisor reviews and they almost all talk about how everyone there gets to know each other and become friends.   One said you can always find another couple to eat with or go to a bar with.   We like that idea.  

We have done almost every touristy thing they offer in Key West.   The last time we were there we bought Tour Passports which, for a discounted price, got us into all their tourist attractions.   Our agenda this trip is to do nothing.   We will snorkel, or out on a catamaran that offers snorkeling one day.   And we want to rent bikes.   We will laze by the pool, ride bikes around town, kick around the wharf, or lay around the beach.  Other than that, our only expense will be dinners/drinks.  We’ll be at a B&B, so breakfast is covered.   There is a fridge in our room so we’ll pack in sandwich stuff and then go out at nights.   Happy hour is 1.5 hours of open bar and “light snacks.”

Our B&B is on the Key West ghost tour.   The tour comes up on our porch and talks about the house ghosts.   You all know I am all over that.   We said we may do that one night, it’s the only thing that wasn’t in our tour passport in 2009. 

I went to bed with a prediction of 1-3" of snow.   Woke up to a dusting.   And a snow day from school.   I live 3 roads away from a main drag.   My road, and the more frequently traveled side street I live near, both have asphalt showing on them.   Neither of those roads are plowed or salted.  I can see grass in my yard.   Yet we have a snow day.   Now the last day of school has been pushed to the Tuesday after Memorial Day.   We get a 3-day weekend, then have to come back for one day.   Stupid.   I guess the only upside is that without this snow day, the last day of school would be the Friday of the 3-day weekend.   That means we'd be working graduations on that Friday night and all day Saturday.   This way we at least get the weekend off. 

Because of the snow day I slept in.   I started my workout at 6:00 instead of 4:50.   I feel sloven.

Now I have to find something to do at work all day.

Morning Ladies-

Well I had a stress filled work day yesterday.  It was so bad John actually came home from work early and we went to PF Chang's for dinner.  Sure hope today is better. 

Any way who else is envious of Tracy's two beach trips coming up - one end of this month to Florida and the other in June for her birthday to Key West.

Tracy, Key West is a place I always wanted to go.  In season, off season, any season!  What a deal!

Christine says the photoshoot was for advertising for the hair salon they use. 

Here is a more demure shot.  Not sure you will be able to see it because of privacy settings.
