  1. We have a new little DD! Labor was fast and my blood pressure spiked but then dropped which made for some kinda hairy moments but we are both doing well and I'm so happy to not be pregnant anymore! Woo hoo! @RootAnn my age made it harder for me to push as effectively I think but that's all πŸ˜‰

  5. How long have you lived there? Dh bought new underwear and a few things online last year. About a week later he checked on the package status and realized that it had been so long since he had used the website that he sent it to our house 3 addresses ago! πŸ˜„ He was pretty disappointed, but I'm guessing so were the owners of that house when they opened a box full of men's underwear.

  6. Worked in the wee hours. Got up late tho after only about 4 hours of sleep. Have a headache and stiff neck. Checking emails, social media, etc ... need more coffee so I can do a little work. Kid 2 is swimming, kid 1 is playing on her phone. To do: Take a shower. Some work. Get dressed up and go back to Dubai for more sightseeing and fancy dinner. I just realized I will be in heels all day. Ugh!! I am not looking forward to any of this. I don't like fancy, restaurants, dressing up, or heels!! (And my kids will be a pain about it too.) And frankly I

  7. This seems to be a different scam- in the link, when you, a legit customer, order something, the third-party seller you order from (not knowing they're going to scam you) ships an empty box to the wrong address, where someone (who is in on the scam) signs for the package. Because a box was delivered and signed for, Amazon takes the side of the seller and refuses to compensate you for your claim that you never got your item. I think the OP got a phone that someone bought with a stolen credit card. And that she should definitely call the police so she isn't somehow implicated.

  8. The errands are done including picking up ds from staying with a friend. So I bought sunglasses that would fit over my glasses, and I've never bought polarized, quality sunglasses before. I LOVE them! The sun seems brighter to me now that I'm "aging" and these are so nice! Now to get a game plan together for the cleaning out this weekend...

  10. Morning. Still waiting on a phone call. The side of my neck was a little swollen last night after a long day, but after sleep, everything looks almost normal. Then by afternoon, everything is puffed up again. In other news, I got a huge file cabinet in which to keep my character work. I'm turning my less than used clothes closet into my writing closet. Other than that, writing today, and trying to push myself just a little bit. I want to write a whole four book series in a year. Two books are already done since November of 2018, and my goal is to finish the third book by June, and the

  11. "It's not related to how smart a candidate is, what degrees she has, or which top-tier university he did or didn't go to." I sure agree with that, but it's tough to get employers to not use those things as a first level method of quickly filtering through a pile of job resumes.

  13. Good morning! Ds spent the night with a friend after swim last night, so I slept in this morning and have had my coffee. I have some errands to run, so I'll be out and about in a bit. Today sign on to a classroom online to help a group try out a new format errands out begin a big clean-out weekend (go through a lot of school books/papers/etc); My curriculum lapse in memory this week has motivated me! take ds to an overnight thing at church dh and I go out to dinner for a date night

  14. And here I was, unhappy that it's not sunny for camping. At least it's warm here. Sorry about the snow, Selkie! Today is crazy busy! Got dd up early to work on her paper. Breakfast is cooking. Finish packing! Some school things with ds. Drop him at tutorial. Take dd to class. Run errands - make copies, get pencils and pens, get printer ink and print handouts. Remember lunch for everyone! Pick up ds, then dd. Drop her at home, him at the pool. Remind dh to pick ds up! Well, kind of. Both picked up, but mowing the yard instead of swimming for ds.

  25. I need to figure out a transcript and put together grades for this last year. Mostly, we homeschooled with wolves, and it was a fantastic year, with the boys being self-starters in everything, and studying additional things on their own because they had plenty of time to pursue stuff for themselves. But I somehow have to put grades for that...so this weekend, maybe. Pull out everything and decide how I want to document it all for later. I need to do better this coming year.

  26. I love fluff πŸ˜‰ is there somewhat well-written fluff? Lol. Will look at that list! Yes to ❀️ Rebecca and Jane Eyre πŸ˜‰ the dystopian book I’m having a hard time reading is Parable of the Sower. It’s a good book, supposedly a classic in that genre but I’m not in that frame of mind, ever.

  30. Pretty brazen of them to knock on your door and ask for a package. Because in a non-scam, how would they have known (within 20 minutes) that their package had been misdelivered to your address? I think it’s kinda scary.

  35. Well, school went well today. My husband called the plumber and the toilet is actually functional, which is a massive, MASSIVE relief. I've combed and combed my hair with the lice comb and I haven't found more than the one louse that I found yesterday, nor have I found any nits. I got prescription shampoo from the doctor and will apply it and continue combing, but I'm hopeful that maybe I caught it before it became established. I'm less freaked out about the need to burn all of our belongings. The university in San Antonio actually has a sane online transcript request thing, so hopefully

  38. Good afternoon! I forgot to get on here this AM. Sorry about the snow, Selkie. Well, our school baseball season has come to an end with a loss in the district tournament last night. The team was one of the lower ranked seeds so it wasn't unexpected. I'm sort of glad the season is done and DS17 can concentrate on things like school work and the June SATs. Tonight is the big Gala fundraiser at DS17's school and tomorrow night is DS17's prom. Done: the usuals; took dog to the vet (good news: his blood work looks great for an old dude; the bad news: he is most likely in the early s

  41. Agreeing with mum and hopefully these aren't too fluffy for you - Danse de la Folie The Parfit Knight A Little Folly and An Accomplished Woman both by Jude Morgan are very Austenesque, Indiscretion is another of his written in the same vein but I recently re-read it and found it s l o w. Frederica and Venetia are two Georgette Heyers that might fit the bill.

  42. Good morning! It's Friday! I have to take ds14 grocery shopping again this morning and do a little work at the church. Dh took the day off work so he can get some scout things done before the camping trip, though he'll probably nave to work from home quite a bit which is typical when he tries to take a day off. He and ds leave at 6:00 tonight, I think. Coffee!

  43. I still love, buy and use stationery! I like writing thank you notes and condolence notes and get well notes and thinking of you notes. Nowadays I usually just buy blank foldover notes from Michaels or Hobby Lobby and draw a little picture on the front of the notecard. I buy the boxes that have a bunch of different colors in them. My Mom gave my 9yo daughter her own foldover stationery with her name in pink. She loves it and writes notecards a couple of times a week. I also buy a lot of postcards and participate in writing postcards to send internationally through Postcrossing. I love tha

I recently discovered I actually like some of that genre after reading Station Eleven. I found this list which may provide some ideas https://www.silverpetticoatreview.com/2017/04/28/50-books-love-jane-austen/. I have read both Jane Eyre and Rebecca which are on the list many many times.πŸ˜‰. If you want some historical romances maybe Georgette Heyer, Mary Jo Putney, or Mary Balogh. All of these offer good entertainment value and are offered pretty widely b

  45. John gave me the birds and the bees talk today regarding chickens and I just kind of smiled and nodded along. The "white gooey stuff" was definitely my favorite part. He never mentioned how the white gooey stuff got into the chicken even though it came from the rooster that the chicken was married to. I'm curious to see if that was the end of this conversation.

Visited a mosque that allows tourists in - they lent us proper covering so no worries there. Dinner at a Persian restaurant at the hotel. Took a walk after dinner. Back in the room, got sucked into a dumb movie my kids were watching. Kept checking work emails throughout the day. About 2am here, logged into my computer to do some work. Now it's 5am and I still
