  1. Oh Muriel, congratulations! How wonderful for you both, and what a sweet guy he is to make the scene just right! Please, keep us updated on wedding prep! (LOOOOOVE weddings!) As for me, just got back from dinner with DH and my DS/BIL and nephews, to celebrate Eric's and my birthday. Putzing around on the computer while I digest nummy fajitas. We're supposed to be getting a Nor'Easter starting tomorrow, and I'm supposed to work the next three overnights, so I'll be packing extra clothes in case I get stuck there (half of my co-workers live an hour or more away, and I'm not sure if any of
  2. Let's see, so far I've found most of my office and fixed the darn shredder, but now I have to vaccum up all the lil bits that are everywhere . Laundry is going, and have dug out the tote so I can file 2008 misc paperwork that DOESN'T go to the taxman...his stuff is in a different pile. Weather here is just....poopy.....switching between rain and sleet, so driving is fantabulous from what I hear....unless there is a dire emergency, I ain't goin' near my car!!!! Gonna go pretend to clean upstairs in a bit...maybe I'll wander into a Clean House marathon and Niecy and crew will kick my tookus int
  3. What a weird fall/winter its been! I've been online lots but I feel like I'm getting nothing done as far as emails and reading here, etc. Doing that now and trying to find my office at the same time...too much junk mail!!! This evening, DH and I are putting up the tree and putting together my Santa table. Maybe I'll even remember to take pictures this year!!!
  4. Holly, I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you lots of hugs and good thoughts
  5. Kind of a weird work schedule this week and next...I worked Wed/Thur overnight, I'm off tonight, I work Sat night, off Sun, work Mon/Tues overnight, and then I have a stretch off, 6 days I think? In any case, today and Sunday are a bit shot, but it's all good. I slept most of today, and now I'm going through mail on my desk, and catching up on emails and such. I'm trying to stay in the same up at night/sleep during the day pattern so I'll be set for work, and really I am a night owl anyway so it's all good. I figure I'll do "office" stuff today and housework when I get up Sunday.
  6. Headed to work in a couple of hours..staff meeting in the AM so I won't even get home until 11Am and then back to work at 7Pm tomorrow. heidi, I'm with you...feeling really craptastic but nothing I can really pinpoint..just general yuck. Saw my psych nurse today, had some med changes, and she plans to send me to a neurologist who specializes in sleep disorders to find out why I sleep so much (who knew that 30+ hours at a pop was considered excessive? ) But seriously...the sleep thing's been ongoing for awhile and neither my regular doc or psych nurse can figure it out.....have had so much blo
  7. Oh no, certainly not! What I meant was the eye candy somewhat compensates for not being able to mini! Nothing makes up for honey withdrawal! :lol:
  8. Economy. Blech. I have been picking up overtime as much as possible here, and so has Eric...unfortunately, it is rare that our schedules coincide. I think for all of October, we've spent maybe one or two days together . I also don't have a lot of time for minis right now either, which is making me even sadder! If I didn't have y'all to give me eye candy, I don't know what I'd do!
  9. Had a weird forum-related dream last night....I dreamt that there was a hide+seek thing going on with Heidi's lil spider Norman, and that when you found him hiding somewhere in the forum, you got to use him in your signature as well.... Was pretty cool actually, and something I could see happening LOL
  10. Weather channel here as well. It's looking like Kyle won't hit Maine *too* bad, but the storm keeps dancing around so that could change, joyous. I have to remind Eric to weigh down the trashcans or bring them in so they don't go flying...I so do not like the idea of having bags of used cat litter scattered all over my porch and what passes for a front yard for us!!! mmmm mullets..........
  11. I am currently trying to decide if I'm in one piece or not...It's been a really long month at work, and I am now on a stretch of 7 days off (I love you Karen!). Last night was a really rough shift: I literally spent 5 hours trying to figure out clients' medication issues, and doing so in the middle of the night when you can't talk to a doctor= NOT FUN! I had to sort through everything that each client had brought, and had to explain to one why I couldn't give him some of the meds (like the one that expired in 1994, and he wasn't even positive if the pills in the bottle were actually that scri
  12. Let's see, kind of an odd day yesterday....went out to dinner with some friends, then they wanted to go out drinking/dancing but I just wasn't up for it....eric and i vegged on the couch for a bit and then i got into an odd cleaning fit (at midnight!!!) and cleaned until 430AM. Skipped my staff meeting (blush) because getting up at 730 after going to bed at 430 just didn't appeal....went to the orthodontist at 11, got one of my teeth shaved down (OWWWW) and new liners (invisalign braces). Thankfully now my poor mouth can heal....my last pair ended up very twisted and had sharp bits everywhere,
  13. Heidi, this may sound a little weird (ok maybe a lot weird) but we had a *cough* friend ( thankfully no longer in our lives) who had a bit too much to drink one day and dropped his IPhone in the toilet (I don't know, I didn't dare ask!). Anyway, he sealed his in a baggie full of uncooked rice for a few days and after that it worked fine....maybe that would work for you? I hope that Miss Nat has thought about things and has a change of heart....... My day? Yeah, I spent too much money. Not that I wanted to but I kinda wanted my car to be legal! I'm now registered, inspected and clean! Also
  14. Ugh! Way too much going on lately so I've not had much time here on the forums (POUT) The last week in July/first week of August was the Bangor State Fair, and I do security for that, so I was gone pretty much 12-16 hours every day for that. Got my check for that, which went into my car...registration and inspection first, and as my "reward" for working so much, I got my car detailed..it is now LITERALLY squeaky clean and there are no more dubious stains or smells (see if Eric ever gets to drive it again after tracking dog poo all through it...GRRR) Getting caught up on other stuff this week..
  15. cut the top off the soda bottle and you can use it for water while you paint. Could also use it as a tool holder. How about a pop cap from a glass beer or soda bottle? The kind you need a bottle opener for.
  16. Steve, I love the magic shop! It's coming along so nicely!!!!! My day today: trying to find my (life-size) house. I really don't get it! It was clean when I started my 5day stretch of overnight shifts, and now, it's pretty close to being trashed. Other than a few kitty toys strewn about, I'm pretty sure it wasn't the fuzzies.......so what the heck did DH get up to while I was working???? LOL I know it wasn't anything weird; he's just a messy guy, and I did know that before I married him....but it still does get frustrating at times. Ah well. I've had my little vent, I'll get the place pic
  17. Well, so much for getting anything *useful* like cleaning done yesterday! My best friend stopped by and we ended up going out to dinner and spending the evening relaxing and chatting, which was great fun, so it's all good. So far today, I went to staff meeting at work, went to the bank, and am now getting some bills and stuff done. Then I'm going back to bed to take a nap before work tonight...Will be working nights the next three days so i probably won't have time to check email again until Sunday, yikes! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
  18. Let's see...I'm being really lazy so far today...unfortunately that's how I've been a lot lately on my days off.....I hate med changes that make me loopy and lethargic at first! I have taken a shower and gotten dressed....if you can call it that...yoga pants and one of Eric's old army t-shirts....My plan is to get caught up here at the forums, then go load up the dishwasher and make an attempt at starting laundry...if the sheer amount of it doesn't make me scream and run away crying! I also have to change all four cat boxes and collect all the trash for Eric to take out. Man, he's spoiled..
