The Atmospheric River is still with us. No flooding or parasailing, Susan. Just consistent rain, which is good. We need it.

I'm glad that you're keeping the atmospheric river down there for the most part this time.  We don't need it.  (It's rained some off and on but it's also our rainy season so that's nothing new.  But not like we get when we have the atmospheric river here.  That's when we get things like flooding.)

You know, saying "ignore this thread" to this group is like saying "don't push the big red button!" 

Homeschoolers.     They always think the rules don't apply to them.

Cardiologist report: this doc was a major answer to prayer. He was appalled at the lack of communication from the previous doctor and apologized profusely even though it wasn't his fault. Dd's heart

Good morning!

Yay for rain!  And also no rain! 😄

So yesterday when I was a Publix getting ladyfingers and mascarpone, the checkout guy asked if I was making a recipe or if I just really liked ladyfingers.  I told him my daughter was making a recipe and the guy in line behind me said (in a very heavy Italian accent) that he congratulated dd for using mascarpone for the tiramasu, because Some People think you can use cream cheese, but it just is not the good thing.  He was an Italian chef and dd12 was so tickled about the whole thing. 🙂

I should have brought gloves on Chester's morning constitutional.  It's COLD out there!  24 degrees.  And I tossed a tennis ball to him in the park and his leash got off my hand and he tore off across the field.  I lured him back over to me with an irresistibly big stick.

Coffee!

Morning.  Happy Friday!  It's super duper cold here and we're supposed to get tons of snow starting Sunday and going right through until Tuesday.    Yuck.  At least my Monday and Tuesday classes haven't needed to use makeup days yet this year.   

Our heat system seems to be keeping up okay.  Maybe a few degrees lower than ideal.  

ETA: A Thanks for the reminder Krissi booya!

Friday!!!!

The rain kept me up all night. We have a skylight in the bathroom and it is amazingly noisy when it rains.😡

School and work today!! I need to remember to take oldest DD to get her allergy shots. I usually take her on Friday, right after school,  but I have an IEP meeting as soon as I get her home from school, so we’re going to have to go after the meeting, so that will be out of my routine and I am more likely to forget. I should write myself a note.

I have never made tiramisu. How did it turn out, Susan?? Baby only made the ravioli from that Raddish Kit. And that was a lot of work, even though they did turn out yummy.

She's making the meal tonight, though we'll do the tiramisu this morning and chill until dinner.  It looks fairly easy - just making the whipped cream/mascarpone, dipping the ladyfingers in chocolate sauce, and layering the two.  I am thinking the ravioli will take all afternoon to make.

Dh has been having gurgling in his ear for about 3 weeks so he finally went to the clinic to have them take a look.  The doctor saw some fluid but no infection, so he is supposed to take prednisone for a week.  Isn't there an ITTer who gets loopy on prednisone? Slache?

Dd14 just asked me, "What's the Latin word for stick?"

Ummm.

I've never studied Latin.  She is not studying Latin.

When I asked her why, she just said that she wanted to know.

Google to the rescue.

Dinner was delicious - cheese ravioli and vegetarian antipasto salad and tiramisu for dessert.  So yummy.  Then we watched The Peanut Butter Falcon.  It's an amazing movie - incredible writing.  Dd22 said she's seen it 7 times and says she discovers something new every time she sees it.  Available on Amazon Prime.

Evening. All up and caffeinated for the night shift. Taking the dog with me tomorrow for her bloodwork. She growled at the cat tonight which is not usual for her. I think having to go out to the bathroom so much at night is bugging her, too.

Hopefully get her problem sorted out tomorrow or at least find which endocrine system we need to hunt down.

We went to two Home Depots in two different cities but we got paint for the kitchen.  It's white paint but a very specific white.  Who knew that figuring out exactly what white to use would be so difficult?!  And I think that we've figured out a tile backsplash - which is not white.

Morning, Happy Saturday.   Dh and I are going to look at the new location for the science center this morning.   Still can't come close to making a decision or starting to negotiate since its NNN and we need to know what those numbers look like.  

This weekend, other than that visit, we are stopping at the science center to feed the animals, do some cleaning, and giving vacation feeders to the fish.   We may not get there again until Tuesday depending on what the coming storm actually does.   Seems to be a pretty good bet I'll at least be cancelling Monday classes, if not Tuesday as well.   I hate making decisions this year.  I used to go by what the schools do but so many are virtual I can't go by that anymore.  

I'll work on classes and school this weekend as well.  I'm definitely, 100% taking this summer to get the entire year of school and classes planned out.  No more of this doing it as I go along.

Good morning!

Jean, I had a dream that our roof was leaking during a heavy rainstorm and water was gushing into the basement closet.  I couldn't find a single bucket!

The Silly Pup wanted attention at 5:30 this morning and barked and whined until about 6:30 when the girls got up.  We were not amused.  The Two Youngest are at a community garden helping work on a Scout Eagle project and dh is determined to take down the Christmas decorations today.  It's time, I suppose.

Dd22 is heading back to school today after lunch.

Coffee!

I slept in and had crazy dreams. I dreamed that DD joined a girls soccer club and they made me sell prepackaged salads door to door as a fund raiser, they were 3 salads for $98. Svengo. I am glad I woke up.

We are taking turns rolling out the pasta.  It takes forever.  Now I wish I hadn't sold my pasta rolling thing at a yard sale years ago.

That’s exactly what I said when we made those. That dough is so hard to roll out it started hurting my hand. Why did I get rid of that pasta roller??

Tomorrow is agility again!  Squeee!

Yay!  Does Juliet get to be in class with her bff?

I finally texted the training center here and wonder of wonders, they texted back!  (I registered for class back in December and when I didn't hear back from them, I emailed, but still never heard from them.) I asked in my text if they received my previous registration or email, and naturally, they have not responded to that question.  I hate dealing with incompetent boobs, but this is the only place nearby that offers agility or training classes that aren't located in a pet shop, and they have a good reputation.

I don't know about your area but here the dog classes are booked way out until April!  I think because it's outside and so relatively COVID safe.  So Juliet's bff didn't get in because of the high demand and because my friend waited to try to sign up.

That could be the case, though when I registered, the website indicated that there were still open classes.  And then they didn't respond at all when I later emailed to ask.  They texted to say that registration for the next session opens on Monday, so we'll see what happens with that.

Does anyone else get a "Site Temporarily Unavailable" message when trying to access this thread sometimes?   It's been happening to me a lot lately when I try to open from Unread Content.  I have to go to the regular board list and choose it from there.  

Weird.

We are now in the 8 to 12 inch band for snow.  Starting tomorrow and continuing through Tuesday morning.    I'm going to run back to the science center to finish some stuff up and because I forgot to bring some stuff home when I was there today.  Then I guess we batten down the hatches and ride it out.    First week of my new session and it looks like we'll be closed Monday and Tuesday.  I have to get together all the contact information for new students so I can do closing notifications easily.

Yes - I'm getting it pretty regularly now.  I generally just keep pressing refresh or the back button until it loads.

I'm on list app #8.  I wouldn't be so picky if I didn't use this type of app constantly.  I *have* an app that works the way I like, but  if I have to swipe to a recipe or my menu list, I have to reopen the app and go through several steps just to get back to the list.  Also, it inexplicably deleted my Aldi app and I can't find it anywhere.

Whew.  Found the Aldi list.  Got stuck in a weird category but I think I fixed it.  Imma stick with the app I have and deal with the minor annoyance of it since I am tired to trying to find another that works the way I want it to.

Well, I survived the Afsa, cleaned house a bit. Baby made dinner. Some beef pasta recipe she found in one of her cookbooks. She is quite an amazing little cook. And I got some really good green beans from the Afsa. Go figure.

Why can't app makers make a grocery list app that I like?  Or just a basic list-making app?  I'm so tired of downloading, trying, and then deleting apps.

Use pen and paper, Babe. Can’t ever go wrong with pen and paper. Technology is birds.

We're still looking at properties to move into a bigger space.   I really liked the one we already looked at but it would need a lot of work - floors, ceiling, paint - and they seem to want to do credit rather than paying for it.  We don't have the money to put out for supplies, etc even if it gets us a few months off rent.   We're still waiting to hear back from the realtor though, so it could still work.

I called about another property yesterday and that realtor is going to get us a report of properties that might work for us.  That should be faster than me searching.

Good Morning!

Happy Sunday!

I told the kids that we had to do online church today because of the snow.  Since we've been doing online church since March because of COVID, they just grinned and were like, OK.  

I have discovered that I live in a house full of introverts, myself included.

Church!!️ No snow here, so we’re going. We are all fairly introverted here, too, Junie, except oldest DD, but I like going to church. I just don’t want to have to talk with anyone. 🤣. DH does have to stay home. His work regulations are such that he can’t go.

I’ve been looking for new recipes. When I try to lose weight I end up getting really narrow in my food choices and then I get bored and then I quit. Through calorie counting, portion control and upping my exercise I have slowly managed to take off 10 lbs. which I am happy about, but then o started getting bored and things started to tank.So, this weekend I am looking for ways to change up breakfasts. I found a crock pot oatmeal recipe that I am trying this morning. It looks good and smells good, so here’s hoping...

Nope.  😂
     
I do most things on paper, but my weekly grocery shopping needs a properly ordered list of items from which I can pick and choose by checking the item and putting it into a properly ordered list from which to shop.  Then when I uncheck the items, they go neatly back into their proper place, ordered according to the aisles of Aldi, where they wait to be amongst the chosen once again.

Good morning!

We are back from early service and Sunday school.  I'll head back in about 45 minutes to play for the 3rd service.  It's cold and wet outside, and is supposed to snow all night but I'm not holding my breath.  Gotta eat some lunch. And have more

Coffee!
