Tiara Pup was teasing you because it looked like you were hinting or reminding of us of your birthday tomorrow (HAPPY DAY BTW!!It's the same as my MIL) and we had been mentioning that some people leave silly comments don't worry though, Becky has promised to attempt to keep him in line with a rolled up newspaper! I'm excited you submitted a challenge entry! Happy dance!! I did too but it is way, way , way out there. I bet if ya all read every entry in level four pretty much everyone here would be able to spot mine in a minute!
Dee Jay I'm glad to hear you are getting some extra money. That always helps relieve some anxiety I'm sure. I have been so blessed with my editing jobs! At first they were pretty low amounts, but now they are building up and $25 here and there really helps.
We are going to NC next month so Q can show me around Duke, then the four of us (M's married now so she has her own us and isn't coming on the family vaca
but I'm so happy that she is married to such an awesome guy) Then we are going to cram the four of us into Chris' little Dodge...uhm I can't remind what it is but it's small. The first 13 hours to NC won't be too bad. I'll bring my huge pregnancy pillow and maybe an egg crate and make a bed for me in the back seat, but the ten hours to Orlando are going to be tight. Q is tall about 6 feet and has knee problems and Chris and I are just fat. Good thing Lyd is so skinny. We'll probably all be a tad grumpy by the time we get there but hopefully will have a nice time. Lyd and I went to Disney 3 years ago with M so probably won't spend too much time there. Man it has gotten so expensive. Lyd and Q really want to check out the Harry Potter section at Universal but it's like pretty much all roller coasters and I wouldn't willingly get on one for a million bucks (though Chris has said for a million bucks he'd knock me out and force me on it...think about that if you're not married!) Hmm am I the only one foolish er I mean blessed enough to be married? Oh no Leah and Laura are too.
Speaking of Laura, I am doing a happy dance!!! I've been quite worried about you and have sent emails and such so I'm so glad you popped in. Leah is right, you should consider going to the conference. I personally know someone who has set some money aside to help if someone wants to go. I also know people who are willing to sponsor someone for a gold membership. I really do hope you will consider it.
Leah, that sounds awful about your co-worker. It would be really hard to work after getting blind-sided with news like that. Once I came into work and saw the sheriff walking down the hall then heard the new mom screaming and crying. It turned out after she had her first baby her husband went home and celebrated and the house burned down with him in it. It's amazing how in 12 hours you can go from best day ever to worst day ever. I'm glad that you got a GOOD REVIEW and found a new apartment.
Barb!! I'm happy to see you actually pop in too instead of just lurk around behind the scenes. I'm sorry about your hip, it sounds dreadful. Is there anything they can do or does it look like you might need a hip replacement? I'm praying.
I'm not sure if Seema is still lurking or not. I know she has been really busy. She shared some exciting news a while back and recently she sent me an email with some of the details. I'm so happy for her and even a wee bit jealous. So if you are lurking, Seema, please come on in and tell everyone what you have been up to recently. It's so way cool!!
've been doing some editing, knitting and made roast beef, carrots and cabbage for dinner. It's hard to want to cook for just the two of us, especially when I'm never sure what time Chris will be home. That's a good thing about a pot roast though, as long as there is liquid in the pan it doesn't have to be taken out at a specific time.
