    absolutly no idea It always amazes me how I can do such stupid things and then suffer because of them.
    So needless to say my wipeout on a wet frostted grassy hill yesterday has left me moving VERY slow and feeling stupid. At least today I can turn my neck and my heads not pounding quite so badly, somebody come beat my husband since he's got a cold the world is ending.:scared1:

    I have to
    take a shower
    get 1 child from school
    get boys to the dentist
    L to swimteam
    figure out dinner
    mail letter

    other than that probably nothing much will be going on. still have laundry that I didn't get to yesterday.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Eek - Christy, be careful with yourself today, don't overdo it!

    Also chilly over here... fuzzy socks are the sock du jour, I think....

    Switch laundry
    Get myself to the nearest mall - my Macbook cracked, and luckily, it's under warranty for another two weeks. I just need a new keyboard cover, but... ARG!
    Head to school

    Class #1
    Back to mall to pick up computer (hopefully!!!!!!!)

    :hug: Hope you are feeling better soon Christy. Falling is no fun and the aftermath can hurt way more than the initial bump.

    Have to go make a lunch and run it to school. Little Bit will freak out when he sees it is rib sandwiches. ICK. Think McD's only grosser, fattier and chewier. And not in a good way.

    Chilly chilly here today too! It snowed yesterday. Check out the Patriots game coverage from yesterday. I think they had 3 inches in Foxboro, it's all gone now though.

    • Go to WM and look for MS punches - NOPE
    • I'm working. My boss is out for most of the day - his wife is still recovering from hip surgery, but he will be in later.
    • I need to do some research about what we are going to do at our Junior meeting tomorrow.
    • Leftover tacos for dinner tonight
    • Homework duty
    • Dishes

    Hope everyone has a great day. Christy, take it easy!

    House - Day 3

    So far we are accomplishing everything we need to get done, but not everything we want/hope to get done. So we're not behind, but I was hoping we'd get ahead of schedule since I know there are going to be things that will take longer than we expect. I think it might be today. And every night, when we come back to the apartment DH and I repeat, "I don't want to be here."

    Workin' in the Scrap Room!

    Load to the House
    Sand the walls
    Wash everything down
    Home Depot (primer, paint)
    Mattress Delivery 12-2

    Ideally, I would like to be able to prime the walls today, that's the thing I don't think is going to happen.

    Hope It will all get done. don't stress over it now.

    Thanks for the well wishes and the be carefuls. I forget not to literally run headlong into my lists. I'm trying to lay low but need to get something done. I"ve told DH at least 5 times a year for the past 4 years he needs to build some steps into this little hill going down to the pool filter and he hasn't. This isn't the first time I've fallen there but it's definately the worst one normally I land on my well padded butt.

    Holly My boys get the same speach for picture day, and they just yes me to death durning it.

    Nancy you deserve a me day!

    Okay off to change over laundry.

    Hi, all! 24th anniversary today! Nothing special planned - DH will pick up some sirloin tips at the store on his way home tonight and we'll have that with bearnaise sauce - yum! - our favorite. Z2H will have to celebrate with us after she gets home from work later tonight. No presents for each other - months ago we signed up for a weekly evening waltz class that starts next week - and that was our gift to each other. (Just what I want to do NOW...spinning around when I'm already constantly dizzy!)

    I haven't posted here in a few days - I went to the neurologist last week and got SO crushed and depressed. The tests she gave me any third grader would have aced and I had so much trouble. (I was going to post here and call it "Are You Smarter Than A Third Grader? NO!") She said I do have delayed processing speed and brain injuries in perhaps a few places (based upon the test areas) thanks to the car crash and concussion. I'm going for a CAT scan this week. The good news is that she thinks these problems will be temporary and will heal - probably within a few MONTHS! (But in rare cases it can last a year!) Ugh! So, no driving and I get to feel loopy, spacey, and stupid for a while longer...

    I've been feeling rotten and sorry for myself, but yesterday, TinkerBean drove Z2H and I around so we got to do a fun run to Ms/Js/ACM. A little retail therapy (DCWV Travel Stacks for $2.97!) and 5/.95 paper made me feel better! And I finally got to work on family layouts, since I'm all done with my swaps!

    Off now to walk the poor dog (finally!) and I'll take the bus to do some shopping before the kids get home from school. We're lucky to live somewhere where public transportation is so handy.

    Christy, sorry not to have made it up to see you while the foliage was so pretty. It is probably over by now in VT. Sigh... Hope you feel better soon - be careful!!!

    PBF You're more important than folliage. there is next year or spring for sugaring season or both!! At least it's temporary although a VERY large pain. Sounds very much like what my uncle is dealing with. I hope that you are reporting all of this to the ins company. The other divers ins should be handling this all. Hang in there I wish I was closer to help.

    Ouch, Christy, take a nice hot shower and something for the pain. I hear you on the husband cold issue. When my husband has a cold, he is certain it's the flu. When I am sick, oh, it's just a little case of the sniffles. ;)

    Thank goodness it is under warranty still

    I am with Little Bit on this one. :eek:

    He is probably thinking Boy, my Mom sure takes good care of me in her own crazy way. ;) :rotfl2:

    Oh, PBF, I am so sorry about your neuro eval, but let's hold on to the news it will be temporary and will heal. I know it won't be as quickly as you'd like but that is good news that she feels it is temporary. Accent the positive, my friend. :hug:

    My Monday to do list:

    Communication book
    Get DD up and ready for school.
    Call Mom
    Lasagna for dinner
    Watch Castle if I manage to stay up that late.

    How much can you fit in your wood stove and how long does it last before you have to reload?

    AWM Ours is a wood furnace (not the outdoor models) we use about 15 pieces of wood daily and feed it 3-5 times. It could hold a LOT more but any more than that and I've got windows and doors open and it-20 out. the heating guy thought log cabins=drafty. It took us a good 3 years to figure out how much. If we're gone from the house or overnight we put in more. Tom fed it last night at 8:30 and just at 6:30 and it was still 70 in here which is cool......

    We can put 30" length logs in our woodstove. DH puts in about three logs when he gets up at 3:00 am, I put in another two at 7:00 am before I leave for work. Another three when he gets home at 1:00 pm, another three when we go to bed.

    Our house is usually around 68-70 degrees.
