  1. Little By Little... Robert Plant
  2. Slave to Zep, I am so happy for you! I wish you and your lucky man a beautiful life together!!!
  3. I just went bowling yesterday afternoon for the first time in years. When we first arrived around 2pm it was normal in there, but after fifteen minutes it was like a disco. Just like you described. At first i was annoyed, but after a few minutes i got used to it. Anyway, bowling with my sister, oldest niece and my five year old was fun. Today i was happy to see my daughter take her second ice skating lesson. Took lots of pictures too. I love having such an active child!
  4. Saw two movies lately. Two weeks ago took my daughter and one of my nieces to see "The Princess and the Frog". I really enjoyed the authenticity of New Orleans the movie brought to it. I even shed a couple tears towards the end when the firefly died and joined his true love My daughter fell asleep half way through (but she's not good at sitting still long). My niece really liked it. Today i took my daughter to see "Alvin and the Chipmunks, the Squeakquel". Wasn't sure i would be able to sit through it, but it wasn't too bad. Best part, we were the only two people in the theatre! My daughter really liked it so was worth the trip. I am hoping to see Avatar at IMAX soon.
  5. Having a nice lunch at Cheesecake Factory with my daughter and one of my sisters... checking out ice skating rinks, and signing our daughter's up for lessons... first one this Sunday! Picking out a karate (Kenpo/kickboxing/self defense) studio to send my daughter... as soon as the end of dance season in June. An appointment to register for summer camp/swim club for me and my daughter this Monday. Loving the idea of juggling so many activities and watching which ones she excels in! Seven days off after working this weekend!
  6. "fixin" lol. Sorry Dzldoc, don't understand what you are asking... but i don't usually break things, but some things break down themselves (tv's, heaters, cars, etc) without my help. HYE been in a treehouse?
  7. Do you mean an intravenous catheter, a urinary catheter or something else? Most people in the hospital are awake for those types of catheter insertion. Seems kind of personal, but i had both place, awake, before having a c-section. The IV was worse, lol. HYE been skiing down a triple diamond slope? (great fun)!
  8. Having a nice time at an indoor swim club birthday party today. My daughter loved swimming again and so now we are definitely going to restart swim lessons this month. The life guard was her swim instructor over the summer so it was great to see her. Also happy about signing my daughter up for ice skating lessons this month! We're running out of days of the week.
  9. Spending the day with my sister and nieces. Seeing Disney on Ice with all the girls, then having a nice lunch at a seafood place (fresh lobster tails, yum). Taking nice pictures of the show and getting 277 pictures developed today! I love having a digital camera.
  10. My first year in 17 when i won't be working Christmas Eve or Christmas Day (except for 2004 when i was still on maternity leave). Going bowling with my sister and nieces tomorrow, Japanese food for dinner tomorrow night, and mom is cooking a fresh turkey dinner on Christmas. Happy Holidays to all!
  11. Hi slave to zep, i would love to trade weather with you (or join you there)! I was happy all day. Got some nice fresh fruit and other food supplies for the "big storm", lol. Needed to go food shopping anyway. Had grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch (comfort food). Shoveled snow with my daughter, who was a big help with the broom. Enjoyed watching all the snow fall while feeling so much freedom. My poor coworkers are stuck at work in "snow emergency" conditions. They may never get home (due to policy, not just weather). Looks like we will end up with close to 2 feet by morning when it should end.
  12. Hi Virginia, we are getting your snow up here now So far looks like close to a foot and i hear they are expecting 18 to 24". We haven't had this much snow in a long time either. I'm getting ready to go out and shovel now so i will only have to do half the job tomorrow. It's 20 degrees but not windy. Tomorrow winds are supposed to pick up.
  13. So glad i am off the weekend and with the expected snowfall, i don't have to worry about driving in it (if i don't want to go out). I lucked out this time.
  14. Atlas, she needs to be in Rehab. Not that it's guaranteed to work because we all know it often doesn't. You are just prolonging your own pain in a situation you can't control or improve. I think you would also benefit from talking to a therapist. I understand your love for her, but she can't reciprocate. She manipulates you and uses you. You deserve a better relationship than this one.
  15. Hi slave to zep, you're welcome! I know how much pride and joy you feel for your son! I'm so glad to hear he is making such wonderful progress! It will be so nice you get to spend quality time with your family this year at Christmas! Have a great holiday! I am off Christmas eve and Christmas day this year but working eight hour evening shifts on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. At least my daughter will get to spend New Year's Eve day with my sister and her girls. They are seeing Disney on Ice and then going out to dinner. I know she will have a great time.
  16. Hi Danny, that was a wonderful thing to do for the bird. You saved his life! I'm very proud of you Quite a few years ago when i was with my exhusband i noticed an injured pigeon in our driveway. He had injured his leg. My husband and i found an animal rescue place (it was on a Sunday as i recall so not much open). The place was quite a drive but i begged my husband to take me. He picked up the bird (i was afraid to) and we took him there. We called to check on his progress and were told he was doing fine a few weeks later. It's a good feeling to help an animal in need. Foxes running around your area? I have never seen one where i live. The red fox is a beautiful creature.
  17. So heartwarming to hear such good news! What a nice Christmas present your son has given you, slave to zep! He sounds like he has some talent that needs to be explored! Have a great holiday season! I was happy my daughter had such a good time at school today (it was carnival day)! Getting some major cleaning done around the house was nice, too!
  18. Atlas, don't you feel you deserve better? This girl has proven to you, quite a while ago, that she does not want help. Once you realize someone doesn't really care, then it's time to move on. It took me a long time to see that with someone in my past, but once i finally opened my eyes, it was easy. Your self respect can only be beaten down for so long. I am sure there is a girl out there with more to offer than this one. No reason to feel unhappy so far today!
  19. Raining all day. Tempature currently 45, winds at 3 miles/hr. Such a dark day, happy to be hibernating in the house.
  20. Happy that a long, busy weekend is over. Working Friday through Sunday will do that to you Now i can enjoy knowing that i only have to work Wednesday this week and off until Monday! I guess sometimes working all weekend isn't so bad (when it's over)! Happy that despite cold temps, the sun is shining bright! Watching a bunch of squirrels running around outside through the window. I think i'm gonna take them some seeds/nuts i have in the house outside (since they are going in my trashcan, lol). Hotplant, i see what you are talking about. I do wish Spats was still here, but wow, that thread was so negative. Hey Doc, did you get that snow you were talking about? I am happy we got just an inch of snow this weekend. Wasn't enough to disrupt traveling to and from work, thank goodness!!! edit: i guess i missed all the fun. I noticed the bring back spats thread but that's all i got to see.
  21. It is a funny show and i love that aspect of it. They are all unusual, but i have a feeling they are typical for Hollywood natives. Have you noticed the clients are even weirder than the realtors? If you watch a few more episodes that will be clear. Try to look past Chad's oddness and you will see his resemblance to the Beatles, lol. Not just the hair...
  22. Hi Virginia, yes, lol, it's Chad Rogers !!! You have to watch the whole season. I started watching this season because i like Bravo (Top Chef, Rachel Zoe Project, Millionaire Matchmaker) and i kept seeing previews for his show. I instantly found him adorable, since he has the look i love. I really love the show now and hope they will replay last season's shows since i didn't watch back then. Chad may seem like a geek to some, but i think he is a really cool guy. I love Starla, too. I don't use Twitter much, but i like to read his page. He responds to all his fans! Glad you feel better!
  23. Spending the day in Center City with my sister and all the girls. Seeing the light show at Macy's was very pretty, shopping for clothes for my daughter (as usual ), a trip to Reading Terminal Market for lunch, and dinner at Hard Rock Cafe. Today really felt like winter (the temps and the activities). I'm ready for spring now!
  24. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope you had a great day!
