Is Quick Reply not working for anyone else??
Geez, how is it November already???Wendi, sounds like a nice, relaxing weekend! Glad your Halloween went well and you got enough candy, even if you didn't find the "perfect" thing to do.Lori, how are you? What's new?
It's getting chilly here!! We woke up to 29 degrees this morning!! It's supposed to warm up into the 50's today and tomorrow though. Tomorrow night we're are supposed to have a nor'easter come in and last through Wednesday - not good for the people who still don't have power!! DH managed to find gas yesterday morning early - he went out as soon a he got up, by the time we went out later the lines were backing up again. They've actually instituted rationing in some areas. Tomorrow Phoebe doesn't have school because of election day so DH and I are taking her into the city - Harry will stay at daycare. She wants to got to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see the Egyptian exhibit. I'm sure we'll do some other minor site seeing as well. We were a little concerned we wouldn't be able to go, but they have gotten the trains running again and all the places we'll be are in midtown so they didn't lose power.
Laura, our generator does run on the natural gas that comes into the house for the furnace and hot water. I can't imagine if I had to go looking for gas just to keep the generator running!! Glad you are feeling better! Is Lacey still enjoying all her knew toys?
Wendi, sounds like a nice weekend - I agree it seems like already we've gotten into the whirlwind that leads up to Christmas!!! We were at Target on Saturday and Phoebe asked me - Mom what happened to Thanksgiving? They were already putting up all the Christmas stuff.
Hilarie, I'm using quick reply, but who knows - it seems like every time I got on the boards something is working differently.
Lori, How are things? Still keeping you in my thoughts!
Wendi-Wow to filling his bucket in 15 homes. That's impressive. We went to a LOT more than that. Glad the party went well too. I'm jealous of your nothing weekend!
Hilarie-My quick reply seemed to be working-but went to full reply so it wasn't abig mess of blech. And-I agree that time is passing much too quickly right now. We leave for vacation in less than 2 weeks.
Lori-Hope all is going ok there.
Andrea-Hope you had a good weekend.
Things are ok here. Tess had a really bad day yesterday. :( She just ate a tiny bit of soft food for breakfast-but not all of it. So we made her an egg & she ate that. We went for a little hike in the afternoon & she seemed ok at the start, but on the way back to the car she just sat down & didn't want to keep going. It was very hard to see. We ended up having to walk pretty slowly right next to her & keep encouraging her to keep coming. We stopped at DQ on the way home (they close from the weekend after Halloween until the weekend of Valentine's day so it was their last day) and she wouldn't even eat her dog cone. So hard for me to see. She ate a bit of dinner, and hasn't eaten any breakfast today. Sigh. I keep telling myself, she's just a dog, but that isn't helping much. Not sure what we'll do.
Sorry Tess wasn't doing well yesterday - hope today is better.
Andrea, BRRR! I heard it was supposed to be bad - especially for those still without power. I saw gas lines on tv last night - it seems surreal to me - like we just shouldn't have problems like that in this day and age. :( The trip to the city sounds amazing - what a cool kid that wants to go to an art museum! Mine would never choose that...Laura, I'm sorry Tess has such a rough day yesterday. It's so hard to go through. When my cat died of cancer, I was glad it went fairly quick - as in, I could see him decline and I knew it was "time". I was glad I knew and had peace about the decision to put him to sleep. Pets are lovely - it's hard to think they can't always be with us. :(DH started late today (because they were drug testing more new employees at 8:00). I think he'll still get off at 5:00, though. I hate not knowing his schedule. I like to be able to plan - to know what's coming. Blah.
