Good morning ladies.
I wonder where everyone was last night. I went to bed earlier than usual with a headache. Woke up this morning feeling much better.
WI this morning.......3 pounds off....WOOHOO. When dh gets home it's measurement day too. I have him do them so I know it's consistently in the same place.
I'll be in and out today. Have to run to get another part for the shower and run by the school.
WATER CHALLENGE!!!!! 100 oz
We can do this girls.!!!
09-28-2004, 08:54 AM
:coffee: :coffee: :coffee:
Deana, wtg on those 3 pounds. That is awesome.
Geri, I am so sorry to hear about the bossman at work. Hope the mood is better today. Good luck with those sitters.
Penny, that's great you and dh are going away. I know you can't wait. I'm glad you said something, I almot forgot that my anniversary is Thursday, the 30th; 9 years.
Leigh, glad the in laws came and helped. We don't know for sure about dh having a paycheck the next couple of weeks, they were still discussing this yesterday, maybe today I'll know something.
Well, I put Andrew to bed at 900, he was asleep by 930 and I was headed to bed at 1100. Right then Andrew woke up and we didn't go back to sleep until after 200. I have NO idea why. He was wide awake. I tried laying with him in his bed, on the couch, giving him a bottle, finally we got up and watched tv, I thought maybe he'd pass out. The dh got up and told me and Andrew to get in our bed and he'd lay on the couch. It didn't matter Andrew still was wide awake for a while, finally after 200 sometime we fell asleep, then I woke up after 400 and put him in his bed, then the clock went off at 615 but dh got up and I turned it off. Then Ally and Andrew woke me up at 730. So I did actually get 5 hours in but I don't know what his problem was. He did have a little tea for dinner which he always does and he didn't have more than normal. I had given him no medicine, he hadn't had much sweets today, especially since lunchtime, so I don't know, but I didn't like it. At least I got enough sleep to school today, it's our last week before fall break, so I don't want to mess it up. Between school, laundry and my everyday duties, I may not get much more done today.
Sure hope everyone had a better night than me. TTYL
09-28-2004, 09:22 AM
Morning Ladies :)
WOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Weigh to Go IDAHO! :) :)
Sorry you had a bad night :( Is Andrew cutting teeth maybe?
Well I gotta wait around for the monthly pest control guy to spray then I am off to get some groceries.
Hope you all having a wonderful day!
I am still doing ok on plan but I got that new incentive to do even better...lol I wanna look good on vacation :)
09-28-2004, 09:25 AM
Penny, he might be. He has been but I thought they were already through. But he can't breathe at night time. He tries to breathe out of his nose and can't. Always been that way. It's not like he's stuffy, he just can't. Maybe he knows this and knows that it's uncomfortable and doesn't want to sleep, I don't know.
And don't forget, when I wanted to look better for vacation,.....................I got pregnant. HEHEHEHEHE!!!
09-28-2004, 09:57 AM
Thank you Penny and Crystal for the woohoo's and wtg's. I am sooooo happy. Measurements are done and I am sooooooo excited. I lost an inch off my bust and 2.5 off my waist. Now if these darned hips would go away I wouldn't feel like such a pear ;) .
But I got hit with a double whammy from both mom and dad's sides of the family. They all have big butts. So I am doing what I can to defy heredity and get rid of it FOREVER!!!!!!!
Crystal: Sorry you had such a rough night with Andrew. Not being able to breathe at night may be the problem. Have you ever talked to the Doc about sleep apnea with him. My mom has it and snores horribly. They have told her she needs to have her adnoids out but she hasn't done it yet. She also went thru a sleep study to find out she had apnea. That is probably what is waking him and being so little it probably startles him awake at night. You may want to do some research on it online and see if he has the symptoms.
Penny: Have fun going for groceries today. Hope you're having nice weather there.
Well, my "friend" is here and wants to get on the puter so I'm going to work on my horrid kitchen. Main project of the day. I'm not stopping until it's clean.
09-28-2004, 10:15 AM
Deana, thanks for your suggestions and I will do that. The only question I have is that some nights he sleeps fine, other nights he wakes up takes a bottle and goes back to sleep. Last night was the first in a long, long time. Now he does have asthma and I've read that that can affect them at night and make their breathing difficult. However, that's usually his breathing from his chest, this was just his nose.
Way to go on those inches too. That's where you always see the biggest difference.
09-28-2004, 10:45 AM
Good morning ladies...
Sorry I wasn't on for long yesterday. This stupid rheumatoid arthritis is killing me right now. RA isn't really a true arthritis, its an auto-immune disease which decided yesterday was a perfect day for a massive attack on my hand. I was supposed to have 8 pills on Sat. and I only had 6 before I realized it was too late in the evening to get more. Yesterday my hand started hurting. It swelled up in my carpal tunnel area again then the swelling pushes on the nerves which sends this excruciating pain up to my shoulder. I was up most of the night because it hurts alot worse when I lay down. When I got up this morning my hand looked like an inflated rubber glove. Hopefully it will feel better today.
Anyhow, I weighed in yesterday and lost 3 pounds. Yippee!
Crystal just a quick question for you-Does you little one have allergies? My little girl has asthma and allergies and she has a hard time breathing at night. Her nose swells up inside. My littlest one won't sleep either when she can't breathe but you can tell with her what's going on because she takes these panting shallow breaths and you can really see it in her ribs and in the hollow of her neck. When she's like that my husband props her up and she sleeps between his legs using his stomach for a pillow. Being elevated makes it easier for her.
Gotta go get some stuff done. I don't want to make my hand any worse. TTFN and I'll check in later.
09-28-2004, 11:01 AM
Chris, I'm so sorry about your RA. My mom goes through her tough times too. Of course, hers is in remission, but it still effects her mostly in the hands at certain times.
About Andrew, asthma is actually caused by allergies so he does, however we haven't been able to figure out what exactly. It rares up in mid winter and mid summer, but because he's got it, it effects his sleeping always anyways. I try to keep him propped up on like three pillows and I think that may help him but during the night he tends to squiggle downward. I don't think he suffers from sleep apnea after researching some of it, I think it's a ton of situations. He shares a room with the other girls in which the oldest is scared of the dark so there's a nightlight, but I think it bothers him, I'm trying to find a way to dim it as much as possible. He's been playing outside alot lately because the weather is so much nicer and when he spends too much time outside he tends to not sleep as well. It's too hard to tell a little boy that he can't go outside when his sisters are. Besides we use window units which collect dust and mildew that I can't actually get inside there to clean and that can affect his asthma. I'm excited to build our new house, because he'll have his own room with little or no night light, centeral heat and air so no dust mites and mildew flowing in there and I'm anxious to see how that helps him.
I've got to get off and prepare school. Hope you all have a great day.
09-28-2004, 11:04 AM
Good morning everyone! We had a terrible time last night with the storms coming in off of Jeanne. I was freaking out everytime the wind picked up real bad b/c I am terrified of tornadoes and there were several last night, but not around us thank God. It's finally died down outside but still windy. Yesterday I got in 64 ounces of water and managed to exercise for 25 minutes. I figured out why I've been feeling so lousy lately, I've been skipping breakfast! I would usually grab something around lunch time but by then i'd be starving and want to eat everything in sight. I decided that every morning I will start out first thing with atleast a bowl of cereal, even if i'm not that hungry. I know it will help me out in the long run.
Deana/Chris: Way to go on the weight loss!!!!!!!!! Doesn't it feel awesome when you step on a scale and see those numbers swinging to the left!!
Crystal: I'm sorry about your little one.. :( I'd call the doctor to rule out any allergies or colds that could be making him stuffy. I hope he gets to feeling better tonight so that you all can get some rest.
Penny: Hey girl! How have you been?
just wanted to say hello to spryng, ricci, michelle, cheri, cindi, and everyone else out there!!! I hope you all have a wonderful day!
09-28-2004, 12:11 PM
Hi Ladies just a quick post from me this morning before I go back to bed, I really need to catch up on my sleep.
Leigh so glad you got so much done!! Sounds like it was a great visit!!
Penny :grouphug: Miss ya girly!!
Chris Way to go on the loss!! Woo hooo!! I hope you feel better soon!
Deana same for you girly way to go on the loss keep it up!!
Spryng How long is DH home for (I just want to know so I know how long he is gonna keep you from us ;) ) LOL I'm so selfish.
Amy way to go on the exercise and water!! You better eat breakfast girl!! It really is the most important meal of the day :D
Geri good luck with the sitter situation! So are you officially back at work or is it just a couple days a week? Did the boys totally miss you yesterday? I bet they did :D
Crystal I hope you get some rest today!
Jill I'm ordering my school books on Friday I only need two right now, I only do two classes at a time and they each last 9 weeks. First off I'm taking Persuasive writing, and college study I'm not sure the exact names of the courses just the books lol.
Ok well I'm gonna go back to bed I'll TTYL!!
Love to all!
09-28-2004, 12:34 PM
Checking in between sinkfuls of dishes and loads of laundry.
Chris: Sory to hear your RA is taking it's toll on you today. Get some rest. :bravo: on the 3 pounds gone forever. I'm right with ya girl. Drink that water. It really does help.
Amy: Thank you and yes it does feel great to see those pounds go away. Eat breakfast girl. It jump starts your metabolism for the day to burn those calories. I learned when getting started with my diet, that you need to keep food in you so that your body is constantly using the calories. If you don't then your metabolism slows down to conserve energy, therefore burning less calories. I went from eating twice a day to eating 3 meals and 3 snacks virtually overnight. I feel like that is what has helped alot along with drinking my water every day. Good luck and WE WILL ACHIEVE THINNESS!!!!!
Michelle: That boss of yours is working you too much!!! We miss you. Get some sleep and talk to us soon. Thanks for the kudos.
Spryng: I'm with Michelle on the selfish. Dh can't keep you locked up away from the puter ;) .
Well back to the kitchen. Haven't decided on what's for supper yet, need to do that.
09-28-2004, 01:05 PM
Just checking in before lunch. We got school done. I put in scooby doo 2 and Andrew watched the whole thing while we schooled. That means after lunch, NAP, NAP, NAP!!!
Hope all is going well for everyone.
Check in later.
09-28-2004, 01:47 PM
All three of my kids had/has sleep apnea. That is what I was thinking also. It can't hurt to have him checked :) Hope you get a nap in today!
Weigh to go again! I am so happy for you!
IS 3 the magic number today? WOOHOO! :bravo: Great JOB!
When do you get an answer on the loan? Have you gotten it yet?
Is Jeanne calming down now? I am sorry you had such a bad time with the storm! I hate hate hate hurricanes!
Well I have three different places I am looking at for vacation
Las Vegas, Gattlinburg, or Colorada... Yeah I know I named two cities and a state......lol
I need some input from my friends.... :) I need a flight, hotel and rental car...
I am checking priceline and cheaptickets as Kristen advised :)
09-28-2004, 02:07 PM
Deanna - Congrats on the three pounds down. That is wonderful.
I weighed in today and I am down 1.8 It is a Mommy, Dad, and Me class so there were kids for JW to play with. I really did not stick to core or flex. I tried to do a little of both, but it gets confusing. I am going to try to stick to core this week. I was bad about my workouts last week, so at least I know how to improve.
I am exhausted. I am going to get a nap and caught up later.
09-28-2004, 02:48 PM
Spryng knows alot about the core if you need help!
I am here for you :) Congrats!!!
BTW, I talked to hubby and he wants Vegas!
09-28-2004, 03:04 PM
Melinda: :bravo: on the loss. Spryng is a moderator on the WW board now. She has all kinds of info. You can do it!!! Drink that water!
Penny: Have you ever been to Vegas? I went almost 10 years ago. Didn't get very far from my hotel but what I did see I enjoyed. Hope you have fun and hit the BIG jackpot!
OK, "friend" is gone and headed back to St. Louis today instead of waiting. Phewww. Now I have to run to town and get shower parts and trim. I'll check in later.
Crystal: Hope you get a good nap in today.
09-28-2004, 03:18 PM
AN HOUR AND A HALF NAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I feel boggled now that I'm up. But I'm so glad I got that in.
Penny, have you ever been to Vegas? How long are you gonna be gone? Let us know.
Melinda, wtg on those pounds gone forever.
Okay, gotta put clothes in dryer and I'm making chicken and dumplings for dinner. So I'll get started in a bit. TTYL
09-28-2004, 04:33 PM
Hey guys sorry it's taken me so long to post! I got a call from Bayleys doc yesterday and they said that her routine urine test came back with an elevated amount of e.coli and they needed to re-test to make sure they didn't contaminate the sample themselves. I was horrified when I found out she could have a lot of e.coli in her system! However after talking to the docs, and Kristin last night it seems like it is pretty common in girls since their little parts are so close together. I also learned that everyone has a little e.coli in their system and that is normal. Learn something new everyday! So that's what I have been doing today. We slept in and didn't go to the gym cuz Bayley was up a few times last night so we had just enough time to get a bath and get out the door this morning and then went and had lunch with dh. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I have gotten nothing done in this messy house! Oh well, I'm sure someone wants to challenge with me right? LOL
BTW who sent TOM!!!!! I mean I was almost glad to see him cuz I have been so tired and I was afraid I was preggo since I haen't gotten my bc pills yet. But now that he is finally here I want him gone!! Oh well I guess we all have to deal with him sooner or later right? LOL
Deana your post last night was so cool! I feel the same way about all of these girls! You have all helped me so much and I really don't think I could have done it without everyone. It's true that it helps you lose cuz you always want to be able to report a loss or something good you did and it really helps being a part of this group. Anyway WTG on the 3 pounds down!!!! that is so cool!! Isn't that real close to 10 pounds gone so far?? AWESOME!!!!! Oh and congrats on the inches down too!! I forgot to post and tell everyone that I measured last week and was down 2 inches all over. I was kind of excited but expected more until I added up all the inches lost since July and it's over 10!! That made me feel better, slow and steady is not my style so I have to be careful not to get discourages that it is not miraculously done in one second! LOL
Crystal glad you got a nap but I hope you can find out why Andrew gets up so much. That would be nice if it was something treatable. Not that it will be a big deal once that new baby comes! You'll be up anyway! I think it will make a big difference once you get into a new house and you can get away from the mold and dust. I bet that has a lot to do with it.
Penny so exciting about your vacation! That will be so much fun for you guys! We will miss you though :( Vegas sounds fun! I went to Reno when I was really little and we got to go to Circus Circus and I loved that, not quite the same thing though, right? LOL I hope you are getting some things accomplished cuz I'm not!! Challenge later?
Chris so sorry about your RA! That sounds really painful, I'm sure it's hard to deal with. We are here for you though! I know it probably hurts to type too much but just know we are thinking of you! WTG on the pounds down!! I'm sure that put a bright spot in your day!! You are doing great!!
Amy I'm sorry about the storms. Living on the west coast we don't get them but since I have met all of you and you are dealing with them I have been having nightmares about them! I dream that there is no where to go and we can't get away from them!! So scary! Sounds like it has passed over though. Are there any more out there heading your way? I hope now! Take care.
Hi Michelle. Cool about your books. I got mine yesterday, they are so freaking expensive though! I'm glad I got one used so that it wasn't that bad but geez!! I am taking a persuasion communication class so we have something in common! Cool we can have intellectual discussions about persuasion now!! LOL Hope you got some sleep!
Melinda WTG on the 1.8 down!! YAY!!
Allright I guess it's back to this messy house! If anyone wants to challenge just give me a ring, I need a kick in the butt! TTYL
09-28-2004, 04:33 PM
Good afternoon all :D
Not working today but will be tomorrow. Thanks for all the cyber hugs! Made me feel better.
Deana...congrats on the 3 lbs and the inches. You go girl! :cb: Glad your "friend" got out of Dodge early ;) . Working on that water...40 down...60 to go. It's still early.
Chris...congrats to you too on the 3 lbs. :dance: Sorry about the RA...don't know anything about it...sounds awful though.
Amy...wtg on the exercise and water....yes, eat your breakfast. It's the most important meal of the day! :)
Michelle...hi there...slow down lady! How are the little darlin's doing?
Melinda...woo hoo on the 1.8 lbs. :cp: So glad you're back posting with us.
I have a theory about Spryng...she goes on the computer...dh comes in and catches her...it's in their room...OH WAIT...I forgot she got a lap top :lol: . She'll be back...no one can resist us.
Dinner is whole wheat spaghetti and meatballs. Then it's off to meet with the 2nd potential sitter. I met with the one that's closer to the freeway this morning. I swear I told her full time on Wed & Fridays.. she has all these time conflicts...grrrr. I really liked her otherwise but hopefully I like the other girl too. She's further out of my way but $2 cheaper per hour for both boys and she said days and times were fine...we'll see. Have to be at her house at 6:00 tonight. If she doesn't work out then I have another name and number I can call from someone at TOPS.
Well, I had better get off of here and get supper together since we're going to eat a little early. Hope everyone's having a great day...
Hi to everyone else out there.
09-28-2004, 04:39 PM
P.S. Does anyone else have a 35 day cycle? I think it's so weird, anyone else weird like me? Just curious.
09-28-2004, 05:42 PM
Geri My girls are doing wonderful!! They are looking forward to spending a day off with mommy tomorrow, and I can't wait to spend it with them either!! Teagan is a walking machine now! Did I ever tell you guys that teagan crawled out of her crib the other day or that she is now climbing up into her highchair? She's a monkey girl!!
Jill did you check amazon.com for your books? They have great prices or check half.com I am ordering mine from amazon, oh yeah and did you know that walmart.com has a textbook store as well? Check them out too! Also about the long cycle, I've had a 56 day cycle before but that was when we were trying to get preg. and I was stressing myself out over it all that I just messed up my cycle, my doc said that stress can do a number on your cycle.
Penny I am excited for you to take a vacation, but I really think you should come out here and we can take our dh's and go meet Jill half way and have lunch ;) I mean really how can your dh be soooooo selfish LOL JK!! It sounds wonderful and I hope you have a great time!! Oh yeah keep in mind if you come here I can get you a hotel room for 35 bucks a night ;) (I am shameless)
Melinda way to go on the lbs lost!! That's awesome chicky!!
Spryng, I can't believe you've left us *sob sob* We NEEEEDDD youuuuuu!!! Hope you are having a great day!!
Leigh I hope you puter is fixed soon so you can come back to us as well!! You must tell dh that he will just have to give up his puter while yours is being worked on ;) How is Liam? Is he walking yet?
Kristin I'm so glad that sydney had a wonderful birthday!! When does your dh get back?
Chris are you feeling better? I hope so!! Let us know!!
Deana whats goin on lady? Busy day?
Crystal, glad you got a nap in you must feel totally refreshed!!
Ok I'm gonna have some supper and read a little before work. I've just got done cuddling my munchkins and gettin nose kisses (Tay likes kissing our noses) and I'm going to read while they are chillin out!
09-28-2004, 07:26 PM
I am glad to hear that the nurse said that is common for little girls... but it is still ruff to hear about it! :( I will be a nervous wreck until you get the results! Congrats on cleaning out the car! Come help me with mine :(
Good for you! I am happy you are off tomorrow.... I am gonna get that witch thingy and send it to you.. I forget... :(
I hope you get better luck with the lady you are meeting tonight! Keep us posted!
Glad your "friend" is gone! You are putting on trim this evening?
Congrats on the nap! You needed it!!!!
As far as vacation it is not until next month. Oct. 26 - Oct. 28.. Only a couple days but it will be nice :)
I am gonna jump in the tub and check back in a bit :) Have a good evening
09-28-2004, 08:15 PM
Good evening ladies.
Penny: We put up shower board and trim on it today, got the shower back together and now it just needs to dry good, about 24 hours. We can still use it but it will be completely set tomorrow. I still have to go hopefully this weekend and get 3 more sheets of showerboard so I can do the other walls. We had to replace the plumbing because of a leak. It looks soooooooo good in there now and I got rid of the sliding doors and went to a curtain. Well a liner anyway. I'm looking for just the right curtain. YES the "friend" is gone. She sent me a message that she made it back. Said she won't be back here until Thanksgiving. YEAH!!!!!!
Michelle: So glad you get a day off to spend with the girls tomorrow. You deserve it girl. You've been working soooo much lately. Yes, I have been busy today. Laundry, dishes, running to town for shower stuff, etc., etc.
Geri: Thank you and WTG on the water. I have 80 down now, only 20 to go. Good luck with the sitter situation.
Jill: Thank you!!! Actually that's 11.5 gone forever now. And a total of 4.5 inches so far. Just want my hips to go away faster than anything. I only measure bust, waist, hips. Does anyone measure any more than that? I know there are people who measure everything from ankles to wrists. Scary about the e.coli....hope it was their error and not a problem with Bayley. I may have sent tom, he was here last week and left on Thursday so that's probably plenty of time to get to Oregon.... :lol: . I'm sorry. But atleast you know you aren't preggo, right? :bravo on the loss of inches. Feels good doesn't it?
Crystal: Glad you got a nap in today. Hope tonight is better for you.
Well, going to surf a little. Anyone up for chat later?
09-28-2004, 08:28 PM
I'll check in tomorrow sometime and hopefully my arm will feel better. My first 3 fingers are numb and so is my palm. The rest just hurts like crazy. I'll rest it some more and maybe take a hot bath later. That seems to make it feel better.
09-28-2004, 08:47 PM
All right ladies, one load of laundry done, kids bathed, kitchen cleaned. My feet ache. I'm gonna sit down and watch some tv until kids bed time. Hope everyone has a good night.
09-28-2004, 09:25 PM
Chris, I hope you are feeling better soon.
Crystal, I hope you get better sleep tonight!
Deanna, WTG on the 3 pound loss and the loss of those inches.!!!!!
Amy, I hope all the storms disappear soon. Storms are nasty!
JIll, so sorry about bayley. Very common for them to get that is right! Make sure you don't use bubble bath too, because it can irritate the area and make it more prone to germs too. LMK how it all turns out. I hope they bagged her and didn't catherdize her.
Hello everyone else. I'm so sorry I haven't posted today. I thought I did in the morning, but then realized I didn't get to it. I was at the gym at 9am with bugga and did a 45 minute / 320 calorie workout.!!! YES! the scale better move this week.
Penny, thanks for the exercise invite, I'm sorry I couldn't do it with you. I'll call you soon. YOur doing great! Keep up the good work. We'll work out a new plan of attack. Maybe in one week intervals.
Crystal, Send me your email address and regular address I have clothes for andrew that you can have. I was givin sooooo many and i know you really could use some extra for him. I don't want any money for them.
09-28-2004, 09:42 PM
Just a quick update...the sitter is great! She has a 3yo boy and a 9 month old boy (also a 12 yo but he's in shcool) so lots of boy toys for my guys. She couldn't have been any nicer. It only took me 10 minutes to get there so I'm not that far out of the way...just seemed further! So she's sitting this Thursday and then starting next week on Wednesdays and Fridays...Mom's keeping Thursdays. A little stress gone from my life :).
Deana...60 gone...working on 80.
Penny..still exercising although I missed a couple days last week...TOM was evil to me and discouraging me! I ate better today than I have been so that's good too. I was up again last night :(. I'm not changing my siggy 'til it goes down!!
Hi to everyone else. Must get a TOPS report done then I want to catch NYPD Blue.
Oh Jill..I think you mentioned that wife swap or whatever it's called. Was that the one with the real anal retentive couple? The wife that cleaned her house 5 hours a day??? And the other wife that let her dogs crap in her house (eeewwwwwwwwwww!)...there has to be a happy medium betw those two! I think that's me! Who has 5 hours a day to clean?

hey ladies, sorry I was MIA today! :lol: Dh is gone and it was absolutely beautiful here,so I spent a lot of the day outside. It was a weird day for me...lots going on, and we are going to have to put my childhood dog to sleep before the end of OCtober...she is just not enjoying life anymore. :( I have been reflecting on a lot today for some reason. Even sat outside by myself to think and read in the beautiful sunshine...it was 69 degrees here...just how I like it, sweatshirt and jeans, but warm enough to feel on your face! :) I think I am just rethinking a lot of things lately...my weight loss strategies, etc. I am not successful lately and I feel like I am constantly setting myself up for failure. Anyway, a virtual kick in the @$& would be great! LOL :lol:
Michelle - Dh is gone Mon thru fri for a total of 2 months. he has been doing this for 3 weeks now, so we have about a month left of it..unless it changes...with what he is doing he could end up cominghome earlier, or stay longer! Hope you have a wonderful day off with your girls! :)
Deana - :cheer: congrats, congrats! That is so great about the inches and pounds! I am so proud of you and hope I can feel that way soon!

Geri - SO glad that you like the sitter, that is so important! :) I watched that wife swap show too....both extremes, but I think that was the point, to show them each how to get their issues in check! LOL! :lol: The no noise thing made me so mad....I think noise is joyous when its my child laughing (awww, I know) anyway, have a great day and work tomorrow...I think you work tomorrow...LOL!
