What's happening today?

I still can't alter my profile because my email address is in use. So, baseball sig is still there.

I can see PPWM! That one was huge. But I can't open it.

No reading or posting from Chrome or Firefox.

But, IE is working so I can read and post. I hope everyone trickles back soon. Someone mentioned that routines are changing with the boards not working. That is so true. I hope it's all working soon and we can get everyone back.

I tell you what's not working for me: your Word of the Day post.   I have opened it and opened it (both of the threads).   It tells me the page is not available.   I have done everything I know how to do.

I think I would be okay with the stranded thing for a day or two.   I’d lose my mind with boredom soon after that.  

I did try that Contact Us link to change me email.  I never check the account I have on there now, so changing it isn’t a bad idea anyway.

Tracy, why don't you try going here:  http://www.ivillage.com/contact-us  and requesting an e-mail change.  Use another e-mail address (start a new one if you have to) and then you can go back there and change it back to the one you use now.  Maybe even if you ask them to re-set it to the same e-mail address it may work for you. That was the only thing that worked for me (Thank you, Evelyn!).    Either way, if it works, you will be glad.... I know I was... also, it seemed to fix other things at the same time.  Or, maybe that was a coincidence? 

I know how you felt when you seen the PPWM thread... I got all excited too and Ash and my hubby asked me what happened because I hollered, "YES!"  LOL  They didn't understand the excitment.... well, they just don't understand how important you gals are to me.  I could not get into it at first either... just kept loading and then finally the error message.  But, yesteday I finally got in!

Boy, Sandy... you sure are causing havoc ..... you got a big presence there girl.... I was crazy and stayed up late last night (until almost 11 pm which is LATE for me!)  watching the coverage on Fox News Channel... it was unreal.  I was amazed that NYC got hardly any rainfall but flooding is terrible, especially in lower Manhattan (I think) from the storm surge.  I guess it was a full 2 feet above the record height!

I hope you are okay there in CT..... and that Candice is okay in Boston.... and of course, everybody else.  I guess there have been 16 deaths so far... but I think that is very low for the size of that girl!  I just do not understand people who do not heed the warnings...I am thinking this may be a good QOTD idea ... Tracy, wanna put that on your phone list of other ideas?  LOL

Remember Amber was supposed to go to Philly for a work conference Saturday, Sunday, Monday & Tuesday but was cancelled?  Well... her boss was the one who checked her e-mail and seen that it was cancelled.  She called Amber and tried to call the Dr. that was going with them but she could not get hold of him.... the reason she couldn't get hold of him?  He was already on the plane flying to Phily.  He had and earlier flight than Amber & Michelle did and did not check his e-mail before he left.... so he is stranded in Philly until at least Thursday or possibly longer.... lol. 

I know it's not funny but I kind of giggled a little .... he has the money so staying longer in the hotel shouldn't be a problem (he is single and lives in a very modest house in the city of Flint and works in 2 other practices as well as working here in the Trauma Services department as a trauma surgeon). 

I guess Michelle tried to call him all day yesterday but there was no answer... I told Amber he's probably sleeping off a hangover from hitting the mini-bar too many times in his room! =)  More than likely he has no cell service.  

If it were me, I would ENJOY THE HECK OUT OF IT!!! As long as I had power.... and food!  Four or five days by myself in a hotel without having to worry about how much money it was costing me .... that sounds awesome to me!

Well, I have got tons of work to do.... I better get at it.
