Kat--job market sucks around here (oops sorry CE--I mean "the job market is really bad) ............over 12% unemployment and no jobs to be had. Everyone is hoping the economy turns around soon. Many of our factories went to Mexico.


V--I'm going to an asthma specialist tomorrow (after waiting 5 weeks for the appt)--I can't get over the cough---any exercise, raising my voice, or at random inconvenient times. Tired of puffing my inhaler. I'll let you know what he says--hoping something new out there.

Happy birthday to my dad, Papa Joe today!! He's uh....born in 1942....uh...old!

Kat, good luck on the search.

Mel, good to see you. Check in more often if you can.

V, that sounds like a very good birthday cake!

Jo, TE, CE


I finally decided what to do about the pool, went with the more expensive one because I felt more comfortable with them. It's only money, right? This afternoon I'm picking up Reid which always makes me smile.

I did, both ways. As a taller person, I'm sure business would be better, but it's OK enough. I don't know how you're sitting or the plane you're on, but I was in the window, 2 person side going out, and that felt better, though I'm sure it's really the same room as the 6-across middle. It's mental, I'm sure, but...

Sometimes you can pay a little extra, normally about £50 so $80 to have the bulk head seats which have tons of leg room. You have to be over 16 maybe 18 though! Most international flights also allow you to prebook your seats so have a look and if you google best flight seats or something like that there is a website that tells you the best seats to sit in. Personally I prefer to be as close to the front as possible as those planes are huge so once you land you're then at the front of the passport control queues

Sounds good


I've just been naughty, the girls went to Guides (yes they're still going even after I was very cross last week) so I made myself some french toast doughnuts I hope they can't smell them when they get home in 10 minutes

Hey All!

Well I did do an update in the wee hours but evidently I did not hit the post button. Poo happens. I had a terrible headache all yesterday through this morning. I'll blame it on that instead of saying that I'm a dummy.

I know that Kat's dress for the vow renewal looked wonderful and she found a place for it to happen.

CE has been buried up to her behind in snow. While T will be buried in Girl Scout cookies soon.

JO wanted to know if the cookies were all that and she has been dealing with boiler people.

ROSIE was trying to catch a bad staffer in action.

DAWN is now staying at the Poly for vacation.

JANET went to the zoo and got some good pictures.

LESSA had a bout of dizziness with a nose bleed. Please, if that happens again go straight to your doctor. PROMISE!??

ANGELA knocked her shower door off it's rail but JO told her how to fix it.

V has been helping TE who is going to Europe. TE found out that she may have to pay for a toilet.

I see today that MEL checked in. She has had sickies and NB is leaving her for an Asian work tour.

OK that's all I can remember.

We have not seen Z or Lori or JV for a while.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
I don't even remember what I wrote about myself.

We have our ressie for the Ip-Dip meet in October. Doug and I will stay at POFQ. Just a 3-day thing, no hoppers or dining plan. Rockie may join us.

If the doctor says it is OK, we will be going to Ireland in June too.

The dishwasher is a wash. We can't find anything wrong ourselves. The numb-nuts who put it in did not put it on a separate water line. It's with the kitchen faucet and ice maker on the fridge. So it is staying where it is until we see what happens with Doug.

We got the truck back at 5PM. The new fuel pump is in and they didn't find anything else wrong. I hope it will hold up for a few more years.

OH yeah, my NY resolution was to go back on the low-carb thing. I've lost 6 lbs since Jan. 2nd. Considering I have lost '0' in the past year, I'm happy. Now I just need to stay focused and keep losing.

Dinner is ready. Crustless chicken, baked eggplant with parmesan, and pasta for Doug.



Later!

Did you ask them if you would be reimburses if you pass the check (which I am sure you will....right). Most places here you have to pay first and then if all is well, they five you the money back!

That was the one with the warranty as long as you own the house right? Good choice I think, especially if they were the one's you were more comfortable with!

Evening all. Another crazy day at work. I swaer they did NOTHING while I was out AND they expect me to still do things from my other job. I finally told them todday that I can't do both. My stress level is through the roof and I am not getting sick again becasue of that place.

We are waiting on pins and needles. Jim's union and the school district have a tentative agreement, but none of the details have been released yet. We won't find out anything for sure until after the ratification meeting at 7pm tomorrow night.

Now we just have to worry about my union's contract. We can't strike, so I am not worried about that...but a raise would be nice

Had a Home and school meeting which ran late and I am just getting home. I'm tired and heading to bed. Hope you are all having a good night

Hi all, from the land of rain and mudslides!

It's been a crazy few days... appointments, rain, shopping, rain, ortho, oh and then some more rain. Rain stinks. Well, at least it's not snow.

Anyway, just popped in to see how you all are doing.

Good night!

Just colored my hair (same as usual, just covering grey) and still just waiting for D.

I'm not hungry, but all I want to do is eat. I'm trying for water instead. I have kept off the weight I lost by not eating the whole week of Book Fair back in November, but I'd like to get rid of more - and for sure don't want to put it back on.

Water, water, water. (Sorry T - don't mean to make you think of rain...)

One guy actually told me the only way to get it back is if it doesn't work out!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Long stinky day. KC ended up coming home from work late which caused arguments and drama for a while. We finally sat down to eat at like 10 frikkin 30. Not cool. Now he is playing games with his friend from work and I am surfing the web soon to hit the bed and read.

I decided to read Chasing Harry Winston before the others, no clue why. It's good so far. Night!

Oh no, hope she gets better :


Waiting in again, it's 9.20am here and I was told the man would call me between 8 and 10am to give me a 3 hour time slot for when he'll visit. Hopefully I'll know soon as it's another limbo day

I ache a bit this morning from chopping stuff in the garden, it's amazing that you use different muscles doing stuff like that!!!
