Glad you are doing ok. Sorry that you haven't been feeling well!! I've caught a cold as well. We've been going like crazy too. Gma is going to sell her home in January, so all of DH's things have to be moved to our property before the snow hits. We've been lucky that it hasn't already. And the weather man gave us good new that we will have the weekend free of snow as well. DH is going to see if he can get off work on Saturday so we can finish this weekend.
DH's work is super busy. Tire change over (to winter tires) is in full swing. My work is ok - maybe a little too slow for me, but no one is complaining, soooo....
The girls are doing pretty good. DD19 goes back and forth about liking college and then thinking it's stupid. Not sure what to make of it. She's just at the point where she wants to live at home because it doesn't cost anything, but doesn't want any rules or to help out with the house. DD10 made the drum band - she had to try out, so she was very excited. She also is in advanced band. Her grades are good. She has those moments of not wanting to do homework, but that's nothing out of the ordinary for a kid.
DD19 has a volleyball game Saturday, and there is a hockey game Saturday night too. Otherwise, we will just be moving the rest of DH's stuff.

Thanks Sue - DD10 seems to be heading toward the musical world and that's good with us!

I so agree with you about setting the rules before hand, but I can't DH to jump on board. He's the type that takes things as they come, and I'm starting to think that this will back fire on us in not too much time, but we will see. DH still would like her home at 10 during the week and DD19 wants to come home when ever and just text DH any time to keep him informed. I had to put a stop to the texting. I don't sleep through it and I don't fall back to sleep very often. So far so good on this point. I told them neither of them are being realistic and they should pick somewhere in the middle. I wish they could get on board, but both are still willing to fight this through.
DH likes the idea of writing things down and signing them, so that part will happen once he gets there, but we will have a ways to go.
DD19 decided to sell Mary Kay this weekend. I wish she would have waited til next summer. Get a year of college under her belt. She's thinking that she will be able to quit her job. But she will have to make or break on this one.

Are you feeling any better?

I totally agree with you about Mary Kay, but DD19 isn't seeing that yet. She's already leaving hints that she will be quiting her job. Hopefully she will take her time to figure this all out. She's not typically known for that though. sigh......

I've got to get the grocery store and sams soon! I didn't go to the grocery store this past weekend and it's definately showing. I think I will go to sams at lunch today. It will help save a bit of time.

Glad you are feeling better!!
