Thought you got lost in yer Easter basket or something! Poor you with the flu.:( Get well soon!:smug:
I am about to exercise. More later.
Oh! Stevie had a baby! Well, his wife did. A rather large boy with one of those modern names that no one can pronounce. Born one day before his 3-year-old big brother's birthday. I told Stevie they'd have fun juggling birthday parties for the next 15 years and Stevie said (and I quote): " The best thing about it is that we only have to go to Chuck E Cheese's *once* a year!" Now that's what I call family planning!:dizzy:

Bagz, you know, I've been thinking about you, but I couldn't muster up the strength to ask where you were. Can't seem to string 2 thoughts together at the same time. Sorry to hear you've been at death's door, too. But of course the show must go on, right? Exactly what it was like with me last week. Hope you recover quickly and can really enjoy The Secret Garden. The performances are all this week? Wish I could see it.
Hi Cherry, what kind of bracelets are you making? Good luck with the exercise thing. I keep hoping to get back into some walking, but I've felt so awful I couldn't even think about it.
That's pretty funny about Stevie's Chuck E Cheese plans. I wonder if he knows yet how kids can throw a big giant monkey wrench into his best laid plans? :s:
Well, I went and slung hash for the old folks today. Was so tired when I got home, I just went to bed and didn't get up until 4:45. What a combination--being sick, m. cramps and the time change. I may not recover for months... :rolleyes: DH is making dinner tonight, isn't that nice?
Where are those Mediterranean travellers? Did they bring me anything?
P.S. I'm waiting for that photo!!!!

they're back. I confiscated the film and will the photos in the morning.
Bagz, I knew you don't go far from home so there was nothing to worry about. You got a grill and you got margies and you got pizza makings down the street. (Bagz makes GREAT pizza from flour).
I am a Lard Butt. Lard Lard Lard. Butt Butt Butt. How did this happen?
How long does it take to recover from jet lag?
Takes me at least a week, depending on where I've been. I've also heard one day for every hour time difference. The boy will probably bounce right back. Did they bring you presents? A mini Parthenon? A Zeus pot holder? Friends of ours once brought us back some *extremely* rude coasters that we have to keep hidden from the kids. :o
I hiked for a couple hours yesterday and did 30 mins today on the elliptical. Kiwi - I use the machine with no arm movements, just the legs and it's on the lowest setting so it's a pretty wimpy workout. Dh does the arms and legs thing and he's still fattish so I dunno if it really works.:D

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to meeeeeee!!:hb: It was my big day yesterday. Tomorrow is DD's big day so we are going out to dinner tonight to celebrate, she has a class tomorrow evening. DH didn't get me my gift yet. He's sooo bad at presents. We're supposed to go this weekend to get me a digital camera. I wish he'd understand that if we get it this weekend, it won't be my birthday present. It will just be a camera that we need. At least he took me out to dinner and bought me a card. The funny thing is, it was the same card he bought me last year. Geez.
I'm glad your men are home to roost, Peaches. Now you can sleep again. So much for the male bonding. When is your trip to Greece?
Bagzie, dear, when you're not here I just assume that you are off leading the exciting, fun filled life that you have. It never crossed my mind that you were under the weather. :(
I went to the dietician today. I lost one more measly pound. That's the bad news. The good news is that I've lost a total of 10 jiggly pounds of lard. :smug:
That's wonderful about Stevie, Sugar. I hope the childs name isn't too modern or goofy. Parents really need to think these things through. DD's friend named her daughter Araya. Her middle name is Sunshine. That kid will never forgive them.
I hope you're recovering nicely Kiwi. I think you should take time off from dishing up mashed potatoes to the old folks. In fact, they should bring you a hot meal.

How could we have missed it?:o Don't eat too much of this: :hb: but have a great time tonight!
Men are hopeless, aren't they? I have to admit it makes me feel a little better to know that yours is exactly the same as mine in that regard. I'm thrilled that you are down 10 lbs! That is great -- and taking it off slowly is the good way, of course :)
I've got to go make din-din, but I'll be back later and put up the Bagette pics from the show. They are fab!!

I'm at the liberry and right next door by the duck hudda pond is a singer who I've actually heard of who's about to sing and I'm supposed to go over and take his picture. ... so let's take bets.
When I get to the gate, will they:
a) Welcome me in
b) Insist that I pay the $15
When they insist and I say, I'm just here to take a picture for the paper. Not staying. Will they:
a) Say ok
b) Get hysterical and call that @#@$ who's in charge of the thing and let him say as he has before "I guess if she can't afford the $15, you can let her in for a minute."
I am jealous of Wabby and Kiwi's picture are wonderful. I want to put ds in this private school near Herbie but it's expensive and he's balking. I don't mind putting him in the public school near Herbie but it's in the wrong district and they not giving waivers.
Herbie brought me a gold necklace and ds brought me a little rug and a magnet and a thermometer. some other stuff came too. They are sweet boys.

I haven't been ignoring you all; I'm still sick. And I'm sick and tired of being sick, too. It's getting very boring, blowing my nose endlessly.
It was a beautiful day here yesterday, so I slept late and sat around blowing my nose while DH and DD took a canoe ride around the much diminished lake -- instead of a lake in front of our house, it is more like a wide stream. I managed to drag myself out of the house late in the afternoon to take the dog for a walk. I got snow in my shoes :?: :?: Strange, but true, there are still snowdrifts in places in spite of the 60 deg temps and the fact that snow has been gone from everywhere else for weeks. Maybe it's plastic snow.
So I thought maybe today we'd get outside and clean up the yard and drag the bicycles out of hiding. Of course it poured all night and is very wet now. So maybe I'll just blow my nose all day again.
I'm so interesting you can hardly stand it, right? :rolleyes:
I hope they didn't make you pay, Peaches. Don't you have a Press Pass? If not, make one. Community activities are supposed to appreciate publicity.
Those aren't my pictures, Peachie. But you knew that.
