Good Wednesday Morning - July 14th

  1. Man do I miss all of you guys...

    Shawn (dh) got back from Boston today...got me a Harvard T-Shirt.... and am I soooo relieved. I told him that if he ever wanted a divorce he would get primary custody 'cause there is no way I am raising these boys on my own...

    He rocks by the way

    My orientation is crawling along...nuff said.

    Big crazy thing...swallowed my crown 3 days ago (porcelain = 1200 bucks) still no luck finding it though I know TMI....

    Hope all is well with all of you...

    Kimmy - thinking of you daily
    Fran - you too
    Leslie - of course you
    Jnette- yup..you too
    blueeyes - uhuh...you too!
    dinah - you too!
    tweeter - you know, you too
    all of the rest of you - YOU TOO!

    just crazy busy..
    wasted on the mainland,
    XXOO

    Good to hear from you, Kate, and glad dh got home safely. Wow, and brought you a t-shirt!! I love to sleep in a huge t-shirt!!
    And I'm not about to ask how, exactly, you are conducting the search for your lost crown, lol! Suffice it to say, at this point you are the Queen of SOMETHING, even without your crown!

    Hang in there w/orientation. I ALWAYS get so sleepy!! So hard to SIT, I want to be up doing something, anything!!

    We baked peanut butter cookies tonite. 13-yo helped read the recipe:
    me: so what do we do next?
    him(strolling around the kitchen, never in one spot for long): I dunno.
    me: what does the recipe say?
    him (making his way over to stare at the paper): mmmmmm, put the butter in.
    me: OK, don't unwrap it yet, the recipe calls for it to be softened. Put it in the microwave for 10 sec., then unwrap it into the bowl.
    him: OK. And so it went . . . Oldest helped transfer the cookies from the baking sheets to the cooling racks. They both helped eat them. No one answered my call to help clean up, though. . . . youngest finally came in. "Mom, we have to start on these earlier next time, I want to watch my TV program (Early Edition)." me: "Yes, cookies take a little time, so you have to think about what else you want to accomplish in the evening and decide if you have time to do them." Ah, life's little lessons . . .

    I better hit the sack. See y'all in the mornin'.

    Take care, Kate, check in again soon. -- D

    Good night and good morning!

    Suzy253, I did enjoy The Girl With The Pearl Earing, although it was a little slow paced.

    Next I'm probably going to watch Shattered Glass. But also got an indie movie "Just One Time" about a guy that begs his girl to bring another girl home so he can watch them have sex. In a duh moment he agrees to do the same, thinking she's going to watch him and a girl have sex, only she brings home a gay guy. It's a comedy and looks real cute.

    I'm watching all the movies I can before my course starts next month. Just not in the mood to read books, which is weird for me.

    Congrats Warrior Woman on getting the job. Hope it works out for you, or at least is tolerable so you can get lots of paychecks.

    Good Morning all!
    It's finally cooled down some here (good snoozing weather). My dogs are at my feet and the kids are still asleep and hubbys at work....ahhhhh! Peace!

    Took the kids swimming yesterday and of course, I got burnt on my back and chest AGAIN, but the water felt so good and was actually warm!

    Just have to finish cleaning carpets today and finish up my laundry before going in for 2nd shift today. ( I do so love my days off! Just had 3...right in a row!)

    Kate~ Sorry about your "mishap". :uhoh21:
    dianah~Peanut butter cookies sound so good about now! (I'm starving!)
    Earle~I love the way you think!
    Tweety~ Enjoy your movies

    God bless each and every one of you and your senses of humor....I always get a giggle when I read posts like this one started! :chuckle

    Morning everyone! I believe it stopped raining...could be wrong though! Still cloudy and breezy...maybe it will help to dry things out.

    Hiya Kate...nice to see you again. erm...any sign of that crown yet?

    Dianah---did you have pleasant dreams???

    Leslie...you are too much! Noticed your posts on the what can I do with my BSN....thread. Still no reply to questions 1-15. Man...some people just have these delusions of grandeur. Sad.

    Tweets---a new tweety avitar. I like it! Yeah...the pearl earring was a bit slow moving but at least the acting was good. The other movie sounds real cute. Haven't heard of that one.

    Julie--I love the cool sleeping weather too. Take care of that sunburn!

    and Warrior Woman--congrats on your job!

    I have the breakdown of my A&P exam...looks like I'll be concentrating today on the nervous system/special senses and the endocrine system today. Lucky these are the ones that I have the best grip on--just hope I don't lose my grip!!! Not as anxious and weepy as yesterday. that was a bad, bad day. Hopefully it will be a fruitful day for me. but I'm soooo tired of this.

    Cheers for now...
