Godspeed my friend.

Thank you!  The phone call wasn't as scary as I expected and I was able to change a reservation to take advantage of a really good special.

Then, I got plane tickets.  Svengo.  And texted a business.  I almost started our tax return and thought better of it.  Not enough chocolate in the house, lol!

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

Yes. Now worth it. Better carpet helped.

My favorite dessert. Most people don't make it well.

Ok, lurking on the thread, and just have to say the Corries version of the brick song is so much better

I am 2/3 of the way through the Linen Closet of Doom.  I have actually done all the linen part of it.  Now to tackle cleaning supplies and way too many bottles of stuff like sun screen lotion - probably much of it over ten years old . . .

Really?  I got an old expired lotion booyah?

Morning.  I barely slept last night.  Those darn cookies.   I need to get back into my slightly healthier routine with yoga, Tai Chi, and less cookies.    I won't be meeting dd for a little while.   She was around someone positive and has mild symptoms.    Luckily we  hadn't gotten together in over a week just due to stuff, once on my side and once on her side.

Good Morning!!!

COFFEE!!~D

Humph Day!!!

School and work!!

Not-Awana starts up again tonight.

Susan, don’t forget to go to the dentist.

Jean, I didn’t know lotion could expire. But I re-read it and you said sunscreen. Yes, I suppose that does expire.

CW, May the force be with you as you do all the things.

Toto, that stinks about DD. I hope you stay healthy.

Good morning!

Had a headache this morning.  I guess I have to go to the dentist anyway?

It appears that we have entered the ice age.  Next week's temperature highs are going to be around 30 degrees!!  That's crazy for February around here.  Normally the daffodils are starting to pop up by now.

I have one project to get done this morning when I can sneak some time on the PC.  I have been avoiding it for a week.

Coffee!

Part of it is the fact that if we haven't used something in ten years, perhaps I should get rid of it!

Yeah, I used to peek in here occasionally,  but it seemed so exclusive that I don't think I ever posted here before.  New name now, so apparently feeling bolder... ha

Welcome!

I'm sorry that our thread seems exclusive.  It isn't meant to be, but I understand how it probably looks like that.  I mean, the fact that I called it "our" thread kind of proves that...

However, everyone is welcome here.  (And I hope that other people lurking here see that.) :)  I actually enjoy the thread more when there are more people posting.

It's not meant to be an exclusive thread, just a thread for encouraging each other and developing friendships.  

So, please post again and feel free to post every day, several times a day.  :)

And we're kina unintentionally cliquey with code words and rules and stuff. It's like the scene in Mean Girls (I think) "On Wednesdays we wear pink."

I've had tiramisu (lots of Italians in NJ, my ex MIL was born in Italy) but I don't like it.  I don't know if I would like the chocolate version better.  I'm not a fan of soggy cookies.  

Cannolis on the other hand, YUMMY.  And the italian cookies with the jelly in between the layers or dipped in chocolate with sprinkles on the ends.  

Now I want cookies. 

The recipe I use calls for lady fingers, and I use crispy biscotti lady fingers instead of the softer ones, so they aren't very soggy. Also, there is some chocolate, although not much. And it's technically kahlua, not coffee exactly, so there's that.

Planning our little homeschool convention in Austin. We would be ecstatic to have 100 people, so yeah, it's little. But it's a start.

We might have to change venues, because although our governor's executive order allows medical exemptions to wearing a mask, the current venue does not. ::I'm not going to entertain discussions about whether we should or should not.:: We have to decide soon, like tomorrow, as we need to keep the same date (April 23 & 24), and that's coming up on us pretty quickly.

There used to be a rule that everyone has to read the entire thread from the beginning.  It may still be a "rule" but we won't hold you to it. 😂  So feel free to jump in and out whenever it suits you.  We also welcome songs and poetry, especially haiku.

We’re glad you are feeling bolder. Just come in and act like you belong here, and you will.😂

We had not-Awana tonight. It went well. I’m tired. I need to put the sheets back  on the bed and I can’t because the cat is sleeping on the bed. And she gave me one of those one-eye-open dirty looks when I suggested she might want to move,

After you hang out here for awhile, you learn the jargon and How Things Are Done, and then you'll be a pal, too. 🙂

Of course, some of us have met IRL, at least, some of us in Texas. IDK about other states. Several of us live within meet-for-lunch distance. 🙂

Ah, now I understand.  I'll never make it

Also, if you happen to be the first one to post at the top of the page, you have to type, "BOOYA!" (Some people thing it's "booyah," but we love 'em anyway.) Why? IDK. Because. Usually you don't know you're at the top of the page until you submit your reply, then you have to go back and edit your post.

I don't make the rules; I just share 'em.

DH just put her outside. She was highly offended and completely outraged. But at least I can make the bed now.

 

points for quoting myself.

I'm sitting at the kitchen table with Chester in his crate near me - he started barking at 5 but now that I'm near him he's just quietly whining to himself, making sure I know he's still in there.  It's too early to say good morning.  I've been mostly awake since 2:30.

At some point I dozed off and had a dream that I was living in a college dorm.  To make things worse, I found a giant frog in my room that had something sticking out of it's mouth - he spit it out and it was his froggy wife. She wasn't looking too good, lol.

Good morning!

Sir Pups-a-lot has gone on his morning constitutional. 🙄  Gotta get dressed and bring the high-schoolers to tutorial and stop by the post office and go to Aldi.  Have to meet with my health coach this afternoon.

COFFEE!

Warning: DentalPo!  Avert yer eyeballs!   

I got an A- at the dentist yesterday.  My regular hygienist retired (whaaaah) but the new girl was nice and did a good job.  Didn't use that supersonic laser thing, which I hate. 
    
Forgot to mention that from my last labs, vit. D level was up to 29 (from the previous 16), so that's some improvement.  Calcium is still high at 10.6 but generally stable.

Friday Eve!!

School and work!!

I need to make some sort of dessert to take to my mom’s house for dinner tonight.  I keep thinking lemon meringue pie because I think my lemons are ready, but good heavens, that is a lot of work. Pies are a lot of work and lemon meringues are really a lot of work. I might make something else.

Morning. I don't wear pink on Wednesdays. Missed the memo. LOL.

Been up to my ears in writing stuff and trying to deal with sickly dog. More dog stuff today. Other than that, I'm still mostly sleeping at odd hours in the living room on the couch where I can get up with the dog, and just trying to get through a day at a time. Just a lot of time intensive stuff right now.

Lemon curd and whipped cream and spoons. (Does anybody care about meringue itself? I doubt it.)

Also lemme PM you my address for shipping... 🤩

Yes, some people care about the meringue.  And the crust.

Dh will sometimes make a gluten free lemon meringue pie for me.  So, so good.  (But, yes, a lot of work.)

This is a good plan.  Please send mine express mail.  If you want to be fancy, top the lemon curd with a fresh raspberry.
