Jaz quickie here
just think you are 'doing school' now to change your career in the future. Your 'job' now is to pay the bills as easily as you can
Just hold strong, you are chomping at the bit for that freedom which is coming your way when you graduate and find a 'new niche' that will work for you!!!
Exciting changes coming your way my friend

LOL Trig on the eating at night/omelet story. I tell ya, if it isn't one thing, it's anther! Your Dh probably tripped her hunger when he started cooking the hot food and she could smell it- stirred up her appetite!.

We had a couple of sunny days but now the rain and storms are back. Oh well. At least the grass is mowed! Pool is supposed to be opened on Thursday, guess we will see if they can get it done or not

Jaz- Yes you are right, we are on the same page and that helps TREMENDOUSLY. We kind of switch around with who plays the heavy on minor league stuff- certain things bother him and not so much me, and vice versa, but on something major we are both all in like a tsunami wave.

Girl, I feel for you on the cube work life. I literally could not. I know this about myself. There is just no way. My body and mind won't have it, plus I don't like putting up with other people or being told what to do. LOL I am a piece of work!

LOVED the pics you sent. LOVE THEM!! Ava and her brother look a lot alike IMO.

Blue- Yep, definitely had it easier with the other two. This one has pulled out the manual and is ticking the "teenager" boxes. He is definitely cowed at the moment though. He has no recollection of triggering his parents like this before. Thanks for your words, and your thoughts and your understanding. Nice thing is, through it all, he understands that our love for him is immutable. It was and is and always will be what it was at his birth- he can't make it more, or less in any way. It just is and always will be. As long as we got that, we'll survive all this other stupid shizz he is putting us through.

Look at you, working on multiple projects. That is just so awesome. I am so happy for you, and proud of you and how you have handled the changes and adversity. This is the icing on the cake!

KMom- So sorry that your older daughter and family canceled. I understand why for the Dh but wish the Daughter and kids had come and just let him work. Lord knows I certainly would have and not thought twice!

God love you putting up with company for 11 days, TWICE! There is no one on the planet that I would want staying here that long and sometimes that includes my husband and kids!

Glad you are staying strong. You've been missed and glad you will be back around!

LORI!! Your trip is practically here! Are you so excited?! I am excited for you!! Take some pics to share with us.



Things are going fine here. Picked Ds16 up at 12:30 for his wisdom tooth removal consultation. He gets them out early June. Keeping him close by and all restrictions continue for quite some time to come. But things are going well overall.

DS19 got his grades today and he rocked it out. By UMD standards he finished his first year of college with a 4.0, by law school standards a 4.13. He is really happy with that. I tell you, the Econ class was the first time I have ever seen the kid really really sweat. He worked his BUTT off for that grade. It's good for him to be so challenged.

DD23 got a promotion at work, which is awesome, and was also accepted into an online Masters degree program at Penn State. So she is doing awesome also. Yay!

Got gym time in today so all rings will be closed. I think today will be day 27 or something like that? Crazy!!

Had Roadkill for dinner tonight and tomorrow will be crack slaw, then leftovers Thursday.

Hi gals.

Trigger---hmmmm. My head hurts. I wonder if it's from all that hammering.

Know just what you you mean about later at night when we're worn down by the day. That's when they can slide one by us easier, and they know it. Laughed when you described kiddo as "mooshy." My teenager was too, as well as seemingly really lazy. But then he sprouted up a half foot in about a year when he was 16. Sometimes I think they're just tired out from growing in so many ways.

The kiddo is going to do just fine, in fact, she is going to do very well. I just know it, because I know your love for her. Her laziness will disappear when it suits her, and not a minute before. But then one day, you'll watch her go after something like a bat out of hell, and you'll think, who is that girl?!

Eh---they may not always fly straight, but they fly just fine if they were loved and respected and considered.

Jaz---Those pictures are so dear. Ava is adorable, even though I know she struggles. But she's looking kind of chubby, like a baby should. I'll tell you pal, you raised one heck of a daughter. I'm sure her hubby is great too, but I know who the bulk of her care falls to. And your daughter just keeps keepin' on, just like you.

As for work, I agree w/Trig. It's temporary. You're lining up all your pins, and before you blink, you'll have bowled them down, and be somewhere else w/another degree and more choices. That said, like Nic I could never deal w/cubbies, which is why I became an independent contractor---which ain't no bowl of cherries either. This is why any way you slice it, they call it WORK.

Oh...and, "On top of all that- you are rolling with a sweet pot on LC." Just let it be said, I don't inhale. Don't know how you do it darlin'.

Also agree w/Trig, worrying about water retention from brats is something to take OFF your list of worries. It's not real weight, and your choices are limited enough as it is. Just enjoy your brats when you have them, and don't let the scale boss you around on this! LOL, it's just f'ing w/you.

K-mom---Oh, SIGH, that must be so disappointing for you---your daughter's family needing to cancel. Not to mention, OMG, I get you on all the work to change all the work you did to make the arrangements to begin with. In the old days you just called your travel agent. Haha, where did they go? Now we get to do it all ourselves on those never ending sites with never ending info, and we're scared to death how much it might cost us to click on the wrong thing.

On your bathroom---renovation is just another word for SURPRISE! Who knew what was underneath? It's always about what you can't see. But then it gets done, and it's great. Still, frankly, I hope to never do it again. A silver lining in my situation.

Lori---You leave what, tomorrow or the next day? I have loved the build up to your trip and hearing all about it. Sending hugs and hopes your way for the race, everything else will be a lot of fun. Can't wait to hear about it, and hoping you'll drop us just a line or two from bonny Scotland.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Worked my butt off today. By tomorrow I should be most of the way there on my projects to be up to date. Very happy to have them, but it's a whole new world, and learning new clients is a whole different kind of work, plus the work. But I'll be so lucky if even one of these new clients ends up giving me more work. Not because I didn't please them, but they are small and not the kind of steady work I was so used to. But they sure have blown some wind under my wings. I'll take what I can get, and they've shown me, I can get it!

Great day on plan today. Two brats for lunch. (hello, Jaz). Pick them up at a local convenience store. Love the Johnsonville ones, so chewy and good. I add hot peppers, a bit of onion, and mustard. Totally satisfying and worth a quick then gone bloat up, if it happens. But I won't know specifically, because I don't do the scale these days.

Will get back on it when I feel it will be more friendly to me. Otherwise, can't expect it to tell me something I don't know. And I do know I've gained some pounds. As always, my clothes will tell me when it's time to risk the scale again.

Dinner? Blissfully not hungry at all. Hubby is out of town, so I'll make something when I feel like it. Probably a burger w/all kinds of melty cheese on it.

In any case, my carb count should come in really low today. Like maybe 10 to 15. I'm pullin' myself back into the saddle. Feels good.

Oh dear, just re-read my post. How could I leave out Nic?! I'll tell you how, fried brain today. But Not going to let that stand.

Nic---Haha. Nothing better than a cowed teenager. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Wow on your oldest son's accomplishments in his first year in college. I remember everything he went thru to excel, just in getting into where he wanted to go. That didn't work out in every way he wanted it to, but it sure did work out in an excellent way for him, from what I can see.

He is the achiever kid, right? Which doesn't mean the other two aren't, it just means they're going to take a less straight and aggressive path to it. My brother is like that. He was always the one with straight As and a clear mission. Although I'm the older sis, it took me more time to find me. There's hope for both types, as I can personally testify to.

Congrats to your daughter too. A Masters these days is an excellent choice to assure more choices!

How are you doing on the NOs. Still comfy?
