Where is everyone?
Parent - - By kelly_v Date 2017-11-03 6:37 AM Edited 2017-11-03 6:42 AM
I was working from home yesterday and for whatever reason I don't think to log in when I'm home usually even though I'm on the computer just the same as I am at the office.

A Dell tech is coming to look at my work computer between 1-5pm today. It better not be close to 5pm :cry:

Assuming I can leave work normal time I want to take B to my city's downtown for their live holiday displays. Seems super early but they do it on the 1st Friday in November I guess (although I swear it was later last year but maybe not). It isn't a big thing but might be fun to do after daycare assuming he isn't a monster

sent him in a footed sleeper yesterday that was size 6-9 months and it fit him well. Had a clothing change at daycare and he came home in a 12 month sleeper that also fit him well. Today he's in a 9-12 shirt and 9 month pants and both are snug. Baby clothes sizing makes no sense. I think he has maybe 2 weeks left of fitting in this 9 month stuff and then he's done. Good thing most of it was either secondhand or in-law gifts!

Scheduled to have his 1 year old pictures on Sunday but now it looks like rain. I'd be ok if it got pushed back a week as I'm not sure how DST will work with his naps - I think he'll be ready for a nap right at the start of pictures on Sunday.

I really need to work on his 1st year book. I mean we only have 2.5 weeks til he's 1!

Started B wearing Huggies diapers because I got some awesome sales with them. He's done well until the last week when he had like 4 days of overnight leaks. I sent Huggies an online comment/email about it and they didn't even ask extra questions just said they were sending me a $45 Visa giftcard (ie you can use it on anything) and some coupons. Dang! These diaper companies really want your business because it is similar to when B was younger and the sizing was way off on Seventh Generation diapers we had stocked up on and they sent me 4 or 6 packs of diapers for free to make up for it.

Does any sizing make any sense? I can wear anything from a S-L and a 4-12. :roll:
Parent - By kelly_v Date 2017-11-03 6:54 AM
that is true, I have clothes all over the place
Parent - - By Mickeyd Date 2017-11-03 6:45 AM
That's awesome on the response from Huggies.  :grin:

Speaking of early holiday stuff, Sirius's holiday station is live already.  :laugh:

I've always been against the "Christmas creep" but I think now with B I want to really embrace it all and do whatever I can. He is getting his picture with Santa before Thanksgiving but that is because it is a free event so you take what you can get (it was in December last year but we didn't go since he was like a week or two old)
Parent - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-11-03 8:42 AM
Enjoy it while they are young. It makes it more fun! I love the holidays because of the fun things to do with the kids. :cool:
Parent - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-11-03 6:47 AM
Way to go Huggies!:cool:

--I went to bed at 8:45 p.m. last night. Super tired from not sleeping the night before.

--Shelled some more beans yesterday. These are pretty little white ones. : pbbt:

--Not looking forward to getting up at 3 a.m. tomorrow. :cry: We’d like to get to the auction at least 30-45 minutes before it starts so Iowa can look over the discs he’s interested in. If we get one he’ll have to go back up later and get it because it’ll take him 8 hours to get it home.

--Trying to pull my head out of my ass and get some weight off. :roll: I’d be content with 10 pounds but ideally I’d like to take off more like 15. We’ll see.

--Busy day today. I hope I feel better than yesterday. Surely with some rest I will.

--Yesterday was really hot and muggy. It was gross. I’m okay with cool, crisp fall-like days. :happy:

--I need to go feed the cats. Bear is meowing. It sounds like he is on his death bed in dire distress. :cry: He has a meow like no other cat I’ve ever heard. :laugh:
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2017-11-03 6:47 AM
Eww on the super early wake up.  We did that last weekend and it took me 2 days to recover.  Of course it didn't help that I couldn't fall asleep until after 1 when I had to get up at 3:30... :roll:
Parent - - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-11-03 6:54 AM
What kind of discs are you buying? I meant to ask earlier.

Get some rest:hug:

Haha! You are torturing him by having no food!!!:laugh::laugh:
Parent - By spiritbear [us] Date 2017-11-03 7:05 AM
These are both Massey-Ferguson discs. I think they are 21’. They fold up on the side toward the middle and you can tow them but because of the size and what they are you can only go 30-35 mph. Too big to get on a trailer without taking them completely apart which is an all day job. He can’t find anything around here. There are some but they are junk and everyone wants 3 times more than they’re worth.

Bear just out and he’s still out there carrying on. I should record him. It sounds pitiful. :laugh:
Parent - - By kelly_v Date 2017-11-03 8:13 AM
If you are able to pull your head out can you pull mine too? Except I think I'm more in the 25lb range at this point.

I like crisp cool fall days (with sun) better than the warmer but muggy fall too

I feel like I need to participate in a some sort of weight loss challenge or something to get me motivated. I tried to get the girls in my book group interested in the idea but they all rolled their eyes. They could benefit more than me. A couple of them have put on a lot of weight in the past 3-4 years.
Parent - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-11-03 8:43 AM
I'd love a no-sugar challenge:cool:
Parent - - By kelly_v Date 2017-11-03 11:58 AM
for whatever reason challenges don't work for me. Maybe if I had one where it was like "lose 5 lbs or lose $50" or something. At work over the holidays they do something where if you don't gain between Thanksgiving and day after Super Bowl Sunday you get a $25 gift card or something but that doesn't even motivate me.
Parent - - By spiritbear [us] Date 2017-11-03 2:27 PM
I was thinking something to do with money. Like everyone has to put in so much and the winner of the challenge gets it all. The “lose 5 lbs or lose $50” would probably work well for me too. :laugh:

I’ve  read about things before where you sign up online to donate to a cause you don’t like or a rival College sports team if you don’t meet the goal. But I’d be afraid I’d just lie lol

I'm here. I'm back anyways. Our UPC went off and just started screaming for no reason. So I had to disconnect everything and reconnect it to regular power strips. I'll go at 10 to replace the UPC unit. So my nice clean black pants are now dusty from crawling on the ground unplugging things.


So glad it is Friday! I get to sleep in tomorrow.

Rip has a playdate she doesn't want.:roll: Apparently the house isn't clean enough for her. Meh. Whatever. At least it doesn't smell. She is getting all hoity toity because all her friends have these big, newer houses and we don't even have stairs and our house was born when I was:laugh: She practically drools when at other people's houses. It is pretty obnoxious. She would rather play at their houses. And apparently we don't have a smart board. Whatever that is. Oh well. put it on your christmas list. :roll:

HOLY CRAP! She is NOT getting a Smartboard. WTH those things are expensive:shocker!::mutmad::roll:

Cant wait until 4pm when I go home and clean for the playdate and then go to bed early. :mischief:
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2017-11-03 6:48 AM
The only smart boards I've heard of are the ones used at schools.  :wtf:  I would imagine those are super expensive.  Unless there's something else also called a smart board.
Parent - By kelly_v Date 2017-11-03 8:15 AM
Whats a UPC? I only know it as the barcode for buying stuff!

I was probably like Rip with the house. Our neighborhood was far away and wasn't as nice as other friends' neighborhoods and houses. Funny about the stairs because I always felt like our house was not as good as others because it was one story. Silly I know but it is true.
Parent - - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-11-03 6:52 AM
Oh! And Q paid me an $400 of the money he owes on soccer and docs and dentists.:cool: Now he only owes me $157 which he said he would pay after Christmas:shocker!:

I'm impressed. I guess my new shared gdocs spreadsheet with their costs is working.:cool:

So, yup, I'm gonna go get some good new shoes for my poor feet:cool:
Parent - By spiritbear [us] Date 2017-11-03 7:06 AM
Nice you got some money out of Q. I’m sure that helps.
Parent - By kelly_v Date 2017-11-03 7:16 AM
Yea! Shared doc sounds like a great idea
Parent - - By kelly_v Date 2017-11-03 6:53 AM
I got some updates from people so I thought I'd share - some are still around just not as much and others we would love to see come back and post some more:

Gregg "I'd love to post more but this POS radio station is killing me"
Suzi "I'm still here! My weiners keep me busy....and I don't mean Gregg!"
Dee "Hi guys, I miss you all. I'm making super awesome cookies lately. Maybe I will try a running shoe or runner cookie someday!"
Bama "Building a house and wrangling kindergartners keeps me busy. I'm just glad to be out of the RV and into my awesome new house!"
PBA "Sunshine and Snickers bars - it's all you need. Well and some cute grandkids to chase around"
Eggy "Travel, travel, and more travel. I need to travel to the city of some runangoers! I can't believe my daughter is about to go to college....that makes me old"
ME "I have an awesome wife and great kids, oh and I even run a bit too. I'm living a blessed life --- and I live near Kelly_v so that must make me even cooler"
Nooner "Hey guys, I like to peek in every once in a while and see how you're all doing. I'm still a running machine knocking out states trying to catch up with Spiritbear"
Vito "Did anyone ever figure out if I am real or a figment of your imagination?"
Baggins "Remember me? I'm still lurking around a bit, hope everyone is doing ok. In peace, Dan"

Ugh! I miss all these peeps!:cry::cry::cry:
Parent - By spiritbear [us] Date 2017-11-03 7:07 AM
Thanks for the update. :laugh:

*i'm around today.  :happy:  I have the day off. I'm hoping to find enough motivation to run and do a bunch of errands.  I know the run will happen, the errands, well, we will see.

*In May, for his birthday, I got my Dad a new tablet because his old one had insufficient memory and one kid or another was always having to go over there and "fix it".  He's been texting repeatedly all week wanting one of the kids to fix it again.  Turns out, instead of just using the new one to play his casino games, he's kept different accounts of the same 2 games and plays on both tablets.  :roll:  He somehow deleted google play and didn't know his log in or password.  My kids can't fix that.   He kept arguing that they should be able to recover the account he didn't even have the name to.  :roll: :mutmad:

*The weather man promised some sun today.  It sure isn't this morning. 

*I'm really enjoying The Good Doctor.  It's the show I didn't want to like but still do. 

*I made blueberry muffins for breakfast.  :grin:
Parent - By spiritbear [us] Date 2017-11-03 7:43 AM
I’ve been thinking about making some blueberry muffins. :happy: I’ve been stuck on these apple ones I make that are to die for.
Parent - By kelly_v Date 2017-11-03 8:15 AM
old people and technology :roll::roll:

I saw a preview for the Good Doctor and it looked good but I never remembered to record it
Parent - By Ballet [us] Date 2017-11-03 1:46 PM
I like Good Doctor too.  I still need to watch the one from Monday.
