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.

Hmmm.... I have inserted a picture three times now.   No picture showing.   Of course it's probably showing 3 times to you all.

Ugh, Renee. Are the roads still that bad there? I have this (mis)conception that everything north of the Mason-Dixon line is very prepared for snow and it's a non-issue when it happens. I think our whole city has 4 plows. It snows an inch here and we come to a screeching halt. I hope you find a way to make it into work.

No snow here but it's cold. And getting colder. High of 29 on Saturday? You can keep that elsewhere. I hate it. 30 days until we leave for Florida.
I Googled our condo. Here's the pool. Ahhhhh

My lovely ex is going out of town tomorrow. Get this schedule I have tomorrow. Get off work at 4:00. Get DD to the softball field, dash home to change clothes and race back to the school for a softball concession stand worker meeting at 4:30. Then I have to get DS home somehow so he can change into his baseball clothes. He has practice at 5:30. Then I have to pick up DD at 6:00. Then DS has to be picked up at baseball at 7:00, and dash straight to basketball. Basketball practice starts at 7:00 so he will be late. When in there will any of us eat? Homework? I have no idea. He picked a great night to go out of town for a date with his GF, huh?

Hello Ladies:-)

Renee that sucks about your car, and the snow!

Missy apparently my sign in luck was short lived:-(

Ugh so my morning sucked. I woke up late, had to shower with Evey(who HATES showers, not a fan of water over her head) she screamed the whole time, then she stained her new shirt with toothpaste being silly, head butted me when I put shoes on her and finally I got her in the car to go to PT annnnndddddd my car wouldn't start......it's been like -4 degrees at night and my battery apparently does not like cold....so David jumped it and off I went to PT. Garrett didn't nap all day, no idea what his deal was, needless to say I am drinking a glass of wine right now!

David did however get some information from Army Community Service about Baumholder....they also gave us little back packs that had coloring books and crayons and other things in it. I thought it was sweet...

Anyways I need to go break up Evey and David's wrestling match, he is making the dog angry, she does not like Evey to sound upset...

Oh we got the snow... did we ever,  NO FUN.

Got back into town around 5:30 - John wanted me to meet him to grab something to eat. Didn't walk in the door till 7:30,  ( After leaving at 4:30 this morning!),,  

Did a load of laundry and just sat down.

I did back this car in the garage- and did I tell you it has no power steering?  Building muscles- didn't know I excercised did you now ?

Schools are closed for tomorrow. we got maybe 4 inches and now its raining/ice.  

Night Ladies !

Susan ask what would happen if you didn't replace the sensors.  And look around for a deal on the tires.

So much to catch up on and I didn't take notes.

Renee, sorry about the car problems.....that blows.

Guss, I haven't had that kind of luck being signed in already. I have to sign in at least 3 times for it to stick. So old!

I know there's more but i can't remember. So good luck to whomever needs it!

I got up this morning and did my exercise...yawn!  I hadn't done my DVD since Thursday.  Oops!  I ran Sunday at least. That could be why I was up a 1/2 lb this week.  I didn't even log in and record any calories on Friday.  I knew it would be too depressing.  I know I had at least half my calorie allotment in beer! :/

Sorry about the car problems Renee.  I need to have my car looked at somewhere else.  One place is telling me that I have 2 ABS sensors that need replaced and it will be $300 ish.  Plus, I know the thing needs tires.  That's a chunk of change!  I will have someone else look at it to make sure.

Morning Ladies -

Renee that stinks about the car problems.  Lucky a co-worker stopped for you.  We are getting your storm late tonight into Wednesday morning but it looks like it will be a mix turning over to all rain.  Still a mess but better than more snow!

Crazy busy day yesterday.  Hope today is not as hectic.

Oh, and Guss, I am way envious of your log-in sticking.  I still have to log in at least twice every time I post.   It doesn't recognize my first attempt.   We usually get there on attempt #2, sometimes not though, but if I leave the page I am gone and we have to start over again.
