    Good evening. It is almost 9 p.m. on the West Coast.

    Worked today and then drove dd to the city for an appointment. We were headed up the mountains over by Mt. Lassen to pick up my 4 year old from Daddy but that would have entailed another 4 hours of driving and I'm not sure that is safe. So, home we came.

    The house is freezing cold - it is 30 degrees outside. Trying to get the fire going - I've turned on my electric blanket. I'd love to live somewhere that sunscreen was used every day . . ..

    brrrr . . . . .

    Hope everyone's Tuesday is warm, sunny and a day off from work.

    Almost Tuesday but not quite. At least you're not totally confusing us like Grace does, and the west coast is used to the East Coast coming in early. LOL

    Have a great day!

    [font=fixedsys]no..i am not as confusing as grace-oz...dont know where she is today, havent offered you beakfast as its not quite the right time, not even for me.
    [font=fixedsys]trying to make the most of the weather here before we leave and join all you cold weather statesiders, havent even got any winter clothes any more.
    [font=fixedsys]i think that we have forgotten what its like to live somewhere that you have to pay for heat!! we have to pay for cold air....something that my poor scottish dh has never quite got over.

    Hello cariad, steph, and tweety. I'm just checking in for now. My 10 page research paper is due on Fri. and I have one paragraph typed. I procrastinate about procrastinating!


    Hope everyone has a wonderful day!


    Oh, and a guy I met in S. Korea called but I missed his calls. He's in the Army so I have no idea where he is at right now. Hope he calls back because we really hit it off. Tweety, was it you that said someone would fall in my lap when I least expected to? Well, whoever it was, they were right!

    You're loud and clear, over.

    (what's a 411??? I've searched the web and haven't located that code yet!! You're dealing with a non-military person here, just a civvie!!!)

    Better get some shuteye, soldier. Never stand when you can sit, never sit when you can lie down. Always eat when there's food, and sleep when you can.

    you can't make me!! you're not my mother!!
  13. by   dianah
    Ahhhhhhhhh, you too: SIMMA DA'N, NA!!!




    And, as I like to tell my boys, "I yell because I care."




    (only a true procrastinator -- that would be *moi* --- could know what you're doing!! I wrote some of the BEST high school and college papers, last minute!! I always liked to think it was because I gave the ideas, the little turns of phrase, etc, TIME to fully develop . . . )


    I know you'll do well on your paper.

    For decades in North America, "411" was the code for directory assistance. It has slowly evolved into a general slang for "information". So if someone asks you "your 411", they're kinda asking "What's your status? What's the news over there?"

    Sage advice. You forgot a couple: NEVER volunteer! :chuckle Don't draw fire - it irritates those around you! And NEVER share a foxhole with someone braver than yerself!

    Ok, I'm off to bed
