Hi Sharon, I missed that Uber brawl.......these people are NUTS😲

I watched both of these videos today and you are right Lois, these people are nuts!  I think it is a sad commentary on today’s society.

 

Melody, it sounds like you are prepared for the storm that is heading your way but what a storm it could be!  Stay warm and safe!

Les is excited about the storm (our son is living with us so we won’t shovel/snowblow). He also has his crystal ball for pictures, that’s what he’s excited about. They’re both excited about cookies 😂

HELP!  My body has been invaded by a sloth... 

Man, talk about lazy...

 

I have to start on my taxes today.  Definitely not looking forward to it.  This is the latest I've ever got on the tax wagon - I have no idea why I didn't start earlier.  It will be an interesting combination of regular wages, unemployment money, the COVID supplement, some 401K money, estimated tax payments.  If it doesn't look good, I'll pass it on to a professional.  

 

Melody - it looks like you really are getting slammed - I got a Fedex notice that stuff in/out of the Denver area will be delayed due to storm.  Fires in fireplaces and cookie baking do sound like a good idea!

 

Debbie - what do you mean by "weird crowd" in Vegas?  I thought it was always a weird crowd.  What was about it that makes you say you won't go back until things are normal.  Where did you dine (always want to know about food).  

 

OOTD:  Right now, I'm in my fleece lounging hoodie.  I may or may not stay in it.  Like I said, a sloth... 

 

OK, now that “weird” comment made me laugh! As for taxes, we just pulled ours together and have our appointment soon. 
 

Stay safe, Melody. Nice that your son is there to visit with and help out if you need it.

 

OOTD black jeans and a black and gray hoodie top.. It was a bit chilly here This morning when we shopped for some plants. Yes, I know, warm compared to CO!

Hi Lois, that’s too bad about the delivery delay.  Hoping it all works out for Monday.

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! Our granddaughter arrived early yesterday morning.  All is well, labor went quickly for a first baby and our DIL pushed her out in 6 minutes! She exercised throughout her pregnancy including squats and all so we wonder if that helped. Asked the kids how everyone was  today and the answer was “tired, tired, and full of poop”! Waiting to hear how the first meeting of our grand daughter and our grand cat goes. This cat is used to getting all the attention......ie-we fly 2000 miles to take care of her when the kids are traveling. Good thing for her that we can fly stand by😸

Congrats to you and your son and DIL!! 🍾🥂

 

A grand-cat is great but a grand-daughter is something entirely different. 👶

Congratulations Sharon!  A previous new grandchild!  Expect the cat’s nose to be a bit out of joint with the new baby. I love a quick delivery, so much less stress on baby & mom. Exercise during pregnancy definitely helps. Melody

Congratulations! Being Grandma is my favorite role in life.

 

I spent the majority of today organizing my craft/sewing/SheShack space. I'm not done yet, but at least I can find a good chunk of my sewing and Cricut supplies. Now all I need to do is get into the closet and organize all my fabric so I can find it and actually sew!

 

And exciting news for me too. My older daughter and grandson were supposed to come for Christmas, but cancelled because all the numbers looked so bad and were worsening. She texted me and my younger daughter and asked if she could come for Easter and the following week. Yay! I get both daughters and grands. The only drawback is that I still have to work, but I'll have all four in the same place at the same time for the first time in nearly two years. I. Can't. Wait. Plus, younger daughter is vaccinated, and older will be by the time she gets here, along with her boyfriend.

Hi @Lois R -- I was wondering if you would mind dropping me a line at cruisemom 42 @ gmail.com. (close up all the spaces).  I wanted to ask you about your experiences on Silversea.  I am looking for a good Black Sea itinerary and none of the other cruise lines offer a full circumnavigation of the area.

 

I considered them one time before for this same cruise -- they had great pricing for solo travelers. Now, I'm not finding such a great deal for solos, but after seeing their itinerary all the other ones are so disappointing...

Lois, Sherri, Anita, cruisemom42, Melody And PurpleHays, thank you for the congrats. Very excited to start this new adventure. 
 

Lois, thanks for explaining the use and meaning of Mazel Tov. Until now I have only  heard it used at the end of a marriage ceremony. 
 

Melody, yes the cat is, as of this morning, quite annoyed with it all.

 

PurpleHays ( I wish I could remember your name), how great it will be to celebrate Easter with your family. 2 years is a long time, no wonder  you can’t wait! 
 

We got a bit carried away when we stopped at a nursery and couldn’t resist purchasing bedding plants. The selection was so extensive that it was hard to choose. Today I worked on several pots that needed spring plants and DH started on the front yard flower beds. We have a long way to go! 
 

Time to turn the clocks ahead-ugh!

Happy pi day. In honor I’m making a blueberry pie & a cherry pie.
 

Our son, who is living with us (until his house sells & he can get another house, divorce) is out shoveling again. Not too bad, only about 8-10” so far, still snowing. It’s high moisture snow which is great for water table & tough on the back. Parts of Colorado are measuring this snow in feet, we’re lucky here on  most of Front Range under a foot mist places.

Ha! I don't use it much here, and I do envy that y'all have been on this thread since the beginning and know each other's names. It's Christy.

 

I' sooooo excited that I can't stand myself. My grandson was 8 and almost as tall as me the last time I saw him (July or August of 2019?), so I'm sure he's taller than me at almost 11. Then again, his Mom is 5'9", her father is 6'4", and his father is 6'10". Yes, that's 6'10"! He comes by it honestly.

I can understand your excitement, Christy.  We haven’t seen our oldest grandson since March, 2019. He was 13 then and about an inch taller than me, I am 5’ 8”.  He is now15 and over 6 ft.  Plus, he has a beard!😂😂😂.  When we have FaceTimed with him, it is like talking to a different person. It makes me sad that we have lost this time with him.
 

I am glad you will get to spend time with your grandson!

 

Sherri🙂
