well, we had every intention to go and get some things done. BUT the van had other plans! Tommy used the remote start on it, then noticed that it shut itself off. come to find out, he thinks the battery is dead. so, he asked a neighbor if he could take him to the store.......that neighbor took him to get his set of jumper cables and then Tommy will drive it over to the store. he thinks it is the battery, so he will pick one up while he is at the store. then he has to go pick up our taxes and check. then run to the bank....then he will more then likely come back here and we will see what time it is.

we are going to get caught up on pictures, probably next Friday since Brandon doesn't have school.

jules & sue~ I am hoping that your moms start to feel better soon.

sassy~ thanks for the valentine's card! I got it yesterday and it was a nice surprise to see!

Back again for a few minutes...

Susan...it's just stress...thinking I am getting an ulcer I swear with all the worrying. V's company will be laying off 2300 before the end of the year. The way the company is they won't say who or when until the day, and they won't say how many at one time. But so they don't have to pay out the arse...they lay off 499 and then wait 91 days for more layoffs...this way they don't have pay pay two months severance to the workers...just kick them out the door. We will know tomorrow if V will have a job or not. Was going to say, guess things could be worse, and I guess they can but this is pretty bad. Wichita depends on the aircraft industry and among the 4 big ones right now (Boeing, Cessna, HawkerBeechcraft & Bombardier) there have been too many lay offs...not good. Never used to worry about anything I don't have control over but this could possibly wreck us and for once I am worried. But like I said, it could be worse and I am sure we will bounce back somehow. Anyway...girls! Sorry the R's are fighting. I remember when me and my sisters were growing up. My oldest was ALWAYS taking my things, never asking. Even when she moved out she would come over while no one was home and things would go missing. Oh yeah...I really hate looooong bridges over water...totally freaks me out. I have gone across the Golden Gate bridge several times growing up but as an adult I don't think I ever could...always thinking of earthquakes in that part of the country!

Jules...so sorry to hear about your mother. Lots of hugs to you both. Keeping you in my prayers. Thank you for the card! I was excited about the baby but not so much now...maybe when it gets closer I will be...

Sue...glad to hear your mom is feeling better and home. And yes, I would say the hubby is definitely a keeper!

Mindee...sorry about the battery, sux! Always something isn't it?

Sassy...thank you for the card I received today...that was very sweet of you. Very nice surprise to get the mail and have not one but two cards in the mail! Boy, I feel special, lol. Thank you!

Kathy...hoping you're able to take a breather today. How are doing doing with your walking?

Hiya Tammy, Katy & Asia

Well, I went and bought groceries. Tried not to spend so much but never fails...I get nothing and then the total shocks me. DD told me I need to quit organzing the grocery cart to where it looks like I have nothing, lol. Get it all bagged and that's a whole nuther story...oh well, gotta eat, wash clothes, etc. I was in the local grocery store one week and the woman in front of me had a bazillion coupons. I was amazed when the lady said her total was $54 something and you saved $95...what!? Where does one get that many coupons? the most I have ever saved with coupons was $10 that why I don't use them half the time. Anyway...

I've got a couple loads of laundry to get done and a 2 mile walk to do so better get going.

Have a wonderful day!

Cristina--thanks for the prayers, hoping the radiation treatments will take care of the cancer cells. Sorry to hear about hubby and the threat of a layoff. Teri is having a terrible time finding a job--one of the assistant managers called and told her to go to corporate and she would back her up--she said that Teri being fired was in retaliation of wanting to transfer to the other store. I know what you mean about the grocery store--I have started making a tick sheet as I go so I stay within my budget. Buying diapers and extras for Dominic makes things hard. I sort my groceries too...makes it easier to bag and then put away when you get home.

Mindee--good luck with the van--Hubby changed the oil in our car and will do Teri's later this weekend.

SusieQ--Ry gave us such a rough time from around 15 until he moved out at 18--then when he was having to deal with an irresponsible roomate--he said himself he started to turn into hubby and saw why hubby said and did some of the stuff--he really grew up after moving out. Teri borrows my stuff all the time--and the stuff I have here for Dominic she takes without telling me....

Well I am going to go into work a little--I can get more done with nobody there...it will make up for some of the time missed on Wednesday at the hospital with Mom.

Have a great day--will try to get back later..

Good morning, ladies...

Feeling icky...not sure what happened. I was fine when I got up and went to get the rugrat. Came back and felt a migraine coming, and just felt sick to my stomach, not sure what is up with that. Anyway...

JULES...you are welcome, I will keep your momma in my thoughts and prayers. Hoping Teri finds a job soon...that is BS that she was fired for those reasons. That is exactly why I sort the groceries, lol. Don't work too hard on your day off missy!

Hiya to eveyrone else

Was going to go for a walk and let Cambrie ride her bike but with my stomach feeling like it is, that is not going to happen. Besides, she has prechool at 12:30. Maybe after I take her, I will come back and lay down...a nap always helps.

Well, I've not gotten a call from V. Not sure when they hand out the notices but they are laying off 1000 right now. Guess I got things a little mixed up as to how they do it. But today, they are letting 300 go with 2 months pay, and then the other 700 will get letters with a 60 day layoff notice. Doesn't make sense the way they are doing it...300 get two months with pay and the others have to work the two months and then they are screwed when they walk out the door. Anyway...not going to worry about it 'til, and if something happens.

I'll be back later to chat more...have a great morning.

Happy Friday Ladies!!

Sue--Glad you have your mom home. Hope she continues to improve! Take care of yourself also. Sometimes we forget!

Jules--So sorry about the cancer with your mom. How scary. Hopefully she will get the treatment she requires to take care of everything. Wishing Teri good luck with her job searching.

Mindee--Did you get the Van back on the road?

Cristina--I would be beside myself also with worry about a layoff. My dh has had to fire a few people recently and they are also having a ton of layoffs. He is upper management in a chemical co but I still worry about his job. I feel like noone is safe anymore. He works 10-12 days and is constantly called over the weekends and evening when things happen at the plant. I worry about his stress level. Hope your tummy feels better.

Susan--That was a beautiful view of the bridge. Can you imagine Cristina trying to drive over the 7-mile bridge in the Florida Keys!

Hugs to everyone else . I went back to WW this morning. Usually go on Wed. but today's class was huge. There must have been 60-75 people there. The leader was great, but I'm not a fan of waiting in line forever to get weighed. I'll probably still go back next Fri and then get back on my regular sched of Wed. Next Wed I have a dental and hair appt. Lost the same 4 lbs that I've accounted for since being off sick. Just made it official. Going to eat a little tuna for lunch, watch my soap, do a mile on the elliptical and go get my nails done. Going out to dinner tonight, don't know where. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I plan to shop a little tomorrow and Sunday, Lauren and I have a meeting with our Church for wedding planning and then have a bridal show to attend in the afternoon. Then it's get ready to return to work on Monday. Take care everyone!!

Good Morning!


Cristina - I think ( hope at least) that is just all the stress you must be going through w/ lay offs and house selling. It really would bring me major anxiety. Maybe a walk would help you, staying in the same routine and such.
*sigh.....it sucks though I will send you warm vibes.....can you feel them?? I would love to go to SF, how long is that bridge???

Jules- I borrowed from my mom when I lived w/ her. I remember I was going away for my birthday w/ tattoo man and I asked to borrow her overnight bag and she came unglued. Said I had taken her jewlery months before without asking and no one respected her things ...yada, yada. I said ...."sheesh, if it bothered you that much why didn't you say something at the time????"
anyway, so I cried and my step dad knocks on my bedroom door and said "you can have my bag",,,,which made me cry harder. He is so sweet.
I was like what???? 43 at the time.....you think I was a teenager. lol

Mindee- How goes the van? Hope it was nothing major!

Tammy - You probably would have to pay me (and big bucks too) to stand in line to get weighed. lol I think the hospital has a WW meeting but it is like at 7am in the morning.....argh. Good for you on the 4 pounds!

Sue- Thinking of you and your mom, hope you have a restful weekend.

Beck is coming to the coast w/ 2 of her girlfriends to celebrate a birthday, just like 15 miles down the coast. When suggested I could pop in Saturday after work to snag a hug she said no.......*GASP*...don't wanna ruin her image.
Whatever that is....lol, keeping in line w/ her spoiled teenage brat. Fine, that didn't hurt me.
What hurt me was yesterday when I didn't even get out of the car when dropping Gab at school and she jumps out and says "bye mom!!" and runs off to the playground. omg - I was the lone parent standing out there in the cold all year watching my kid play because she didn't want me to leave. lol
Turd.

Also, she made Shark in swimming, from Minnow! Yay, G.

Made a yummy salad for lunch. Co workers ooooo and ahhhhh over it. It is becoming a conversation piece now. Small town and all.....maybe I will get in the paper for it??

to Francie, Sassy, Katy, Kathy, and Asia!!

Hiya ladies...back again!

TAMMY...DS just got back from FL and called on his way from the airport to the Keys...did not want to think about him driving tha bridge! I told him the ONLY way I would go there is if a plane landed there, lol. Yeah, you are right...I am not even sure there is such a thing as job security anymore. To top it off...I just read about a job freeze! A Bridal show sounds fun...hope you and your DD have a wonderful weekend of planning! WTG on the 4 pounds! I think that was another reason I quit WW...the freakin lines are ridiculous. Well, I quit going to the meetings...I still plan on doing it once I get my head set on sticking with it 100%. Too much going on right now for me to focus completely on weight loss.

SUSAN...I am not sure how long the Golden Gate bridge is...but I won't cross it ever, lol. The last time I was in CA they had that big earthquake and showed people on the bridge...no way. In CO once we went to the Royal Gorge and walked across that suspension bridge...I did fine until some dummy decided to drive over it, OMG!!! Anyway...kids are so funny. I remember when Jason started Kindergarten and did that...I've seen kids cry when they had to go but I think I was the only mom standing there on the verge of tears, lol. You can't ruin their image ya know, lol! Love the pic...too cute!

Well, I probably need to go do something. Got the little rugrat off to preschool, came home and had some soup and crackers...feel a liitle better. I just hate that dizzy feeling. Need to fold some clothes but feel like taking a nap. I have a feeling J & C will be by later and drive me crazy...I don't mind them...just not in a great mood for company. It's warm enough they can go out and play so...

Hoping everyone is having a wonderful day!

SuzyQ--Teri borrowed my overnight bag cause her leopard print one is so out of style--I think it's cute. the only thing of mine she took that pissed me off were the perfect pair of tweezers that I have had for years...she lost them of course. She borrowed a choker type necklace and broke it....It looked cuter on her anyway--JR thinks he can fix it.I just hate when she takes my stash of formula, diapers, wipes insert any baby item here and doesn't tell me until I go to use and have to run to the store to replace it...

Tammy--wtg on the 4 lbs. Good luck with the wedding plans. Have fun at dinner tonight!!

Cristina--I used to be scared to death of long bridges--I crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge on the floor in the backseat of my Nanny's car with a cover over my head. My Mom blames Ted Kennedy and Chappaquidick (I know I spelled that wrong...) and the girl that he crashed into the water withdying being all over the news..I WOULD love to go to the Florida Keys...bridge and all...

SUe--glad your mom is doing better!!

Gotta go...

Good to hear your mother will get in to see the doctor in Wednesday!


Cristina - Happy to hear you were feeling better!

I am hurrying because I only have a short break at work. Gaby starts her basketball clinic today, I get off work just in time to take her this afternoon.

Her father was an f-ing grump last night when picking her up. What a jerk.

Different day, different salad....same bat channel....haha

ok- it is recess time!! Everyone needs to come out and play!

Chat more later...

well, I think I found a way to lose some pounds.......I got my tongue pierces last night.....and well, it is a pain in the butt to eat anything until I get used to it being in there. so, I have been drinking plenty of cold drinks, and nibbling on some doughnuts that Tommy bought for me last night. not the most nutritious thing, but I am at least getting something into my system.

now, we are hoping that our neighbor is able to watch the kids tonight and if so, then we are going to go out and go bowling. we asked a friend of ours what he is doing but we haven't heard from him yet today. (he has been going through a rough time lately....so we figured that we would offer him the chance to go out and relax)

the van is fixed, and it was only the battery this time! we do have to get new tires, a transmission overhaul (I think he called it) and back brakes. but for now it is working good!

gotta run, I am going to try and eat some soup.....and then we are going grocery shopping!

Mindee--OUCH!!! That's one peircing neither of the kids have gotten...yet. Teri had too much dental work done. Hope you got a babysitter and went out bowling and had fun!!

I am just washing clothes and then going to take Dominic down to my Mom;s house. It's beautiful out today--not even 10AM and already 60 degrees. I am hanging the bed clothes out on the line to dry!! Had fun at our friends. Dominic played with their kids and had a fun time. The cutest moment was her boy that will be 2 in May was pulling Dominic around in his little red wagon. Wish I had the camera with me.
