What's everyone up to today??

I've been dealing with frozen hot water pipes in my kids' bathroom as well as a frozen drain. Apparently when we finished the downstairs bathroom (directly below), the exhaust fan was placed poorly and with the freezing temps we've had have stopped up those pipes. So annoying. I was up until midnight trying to fix them to no avail. DH is out of town so that's why I was messing with it. Our temps are supposed to come back up out of freezing for the first time in a month this week so crossing my fingers we can get them flowing again before anything bursts. :dramaqueen:

DS's hair was looking wild so I cut it this morning and he seriously freaked out and cried the whole time. :dontknow: So weird, he usually doesn't mind the clippers so much. Now the kids are watching Monsters, Inc. and are happy again. Need to go to the mall to get Wallflowers from Bath & Body but really don't feel like loading up the crew. I have a coupon that expires soon though.

UGH! That really sucks about the frozen pipes! I hear some people in older houses have to leave their water on a tiny bit at night to avoid freezing. Eeeeek! I hope it thaws really soon.

I'm having a yucky day. I woke up with a sore throat and then my breakfast made me want to hurl. My tummy has calmed down now though so that's good. I still feel like going back to bed but I need to get some work done. Sad

Oh no, sorry you aren't feeling well Sad Hope it is a fluke thing and goes away quickly.

The annoying thing is my house is less than 5 years old!! Not sure why they didn't insulate the pipes properly to begin with.

Ashley - that sucks about the pipes! I hope it works. I remember my parents dealing with that when I was a kid

Heather - I hope you feel better.

As for me, I'm at work. Boo! DS said this morning he didn't want to school and wanted to stay home all day with mommy. I told him I would much prefer that too. Instead I am sitting here trying to figure out how to export data from a sql server into Microsoft Access, so it can be useful to me. I could ask someone, but I'm stubborn and want to figure it out myself. Wink

I think DS might be coming down with something. We just got a cold spell the last two days and he was coughing last night and a little groggy this morning. We'll see.

I did just have a YUMMY lunch with an old co-worker at Urban Hibachi (its a Benihana/Kobe style restuarant, but much cheaper and you don't sit around the table.) Steak and noodles with a shrimp tempura roll. Soooooo good. I have leftovers for lunch tommorrow too.

Ashley - ugh! Sorry about the pipes and with dh being out of town too! I hope they thaw quickly!!

Heather - Feel better fast!!

Noelle - In my past life I knew how to dump data from SQL to access, but now I do childcare in my home and I'm afraid it's damaged my data mining lobe!!

AFM - I'm glad it's nap time and wishing my LO would start to wiggle where I can feel it soon!!!

Noelle: totally jealous of your lunch! I loooooooove that kind of food. Sorry your DS wasn't feeling in a school mood today. We have days like that and I feel so bad sometimes pushing into going (aka: forcing) but then when I pick her up, she always is glad she went. Good luck figuring out your work stuff. Access is one of the few Microsoft programs that I've never even touched so I'm no help. But I understand wanting to figure it out, I"m like that too.

Lauren: hoping you get some strong kicks soon! Even though I started feeling my little guy at 14 weeks, it was few and far between literally until the last week he has started going nuts in there.

Survived the mall. DS wanted to pull all the candles off the shelf and DD wanted to smell everything so I got in and out of there as fast as possible. Now lunch and then kids' naps. I need to clean so I'm looking forward to it.

My new job is requiring me to write complex sql queries, but my brain is not taking it, that's why I'm trying to figure the exporting so I can "cheat" and let access write the sql for me. Lol!

Maybe in 9 months, I'll be back into the swing of my brain.......oops I forgot, I will be a sleep deprived, pumping machine by then. Ok, maybe I'll get my brain back in about 1 1/2 years?

It's all worth it though!!

I'm thinking about what's for dinner.

Grilled Cheese and soup sounds good to me Wink

DH is at a business dinner, so it's just DS & I, but I should go to the store and get milk and more fruit, but I really don't feel like it. I should make myself. Maybe I'll go to whole foods because I just need produce and organic milk, so I want spend the "whole paycheck" there Wink

My hubby is an expert at sql queries and access...so I'd just make him do it. Blum 3 I'm working in C# right now. I need to make a report from scratch and my head is spinning! Between baby brain, DD's birthday party this weekend and my cold, I'm ready to go back to bed. Sad

It is pretty blizzardy here today. I had to go out and shovel the steps in the front because I fell down them this morning taking DS to the bus :mad: DH is so busy that he doesn't get home til late so he hasn't had a chance to shovel.

Soup and grilled cheese sounds yummy for supper Smile I need something simple to make......

I like fixing stuff when DH is gone too... I can get by with giving the kids some apple slices with peanut butter and a bowl of popcorn. Obviously that doesn't work when DH is home. Wink

I just put a broccoli/cheese/sausage/potato casserole in the oven for tonight. It's a recipe I've never tried before, but I can't see it turning out bad. Everything I put into it is stuff I like!! Smile The kids will more than likely just pick at it... they are like that with most new things. My oldest is much better about food now though, so she'll at least eat it.

Dang it Sandra, quit falling on the ice! I fell on Monday and my whole body is sore. I was holding DS which sort of made me fall on my side butt to keep him as high as possible so at least that kept me from hitting my stomach but boy did it rattle me. Be careful girl!

Laurie: casserole sounds strangely delicious right now. Hope it turns out!

Heather: jealous you have leftovers, that makes life easy!

I'm working on time-outs with DS (he's pestering his sister today) but he thinks me chasing him back to the bench is the funniest game ever. Grr!

Y'all be careful on the ice ... No ice here, but I'm certain I could manage to fall anyways!

I really miss writing SQL queries, BUT I'm home with my kids which was what I wanted for now. Still miss using my grown up brain sometimes. I was actually an accountant, but no matter what job I had I needed up finding a way to do SQL, or something similar. It was my favorite part! Accounting is too boring. :homework: When I go back to working outside the home, I'm going to be seriously considering a career change.

I made tuna noodle casserole tonight, and OMG, it was good!!!!!!!

We stuck with chicken noodle soup and toast tonight. Wish I had leftover spaghetti!

DH is working late tonight. I should really clean up the kitchen but I mostly just want to keep watching episodes of 24 on Netflix. LOL.

I made a batch of marmalade today. I enjoy canning, and I haven't gotten to in a while. It sure does make a mess, but I love seeing all of my colorful jars and having food on hand.

I remember falling with both of my other two, but, fingers crossed, maybe I won't with this one.

I had cooked chicken breast in the freezer and leftover corn in the fridge, so I put that in Kraft foods and came up with this: Santa Fe Enchilada Bake recipe

I know I am tired tonight and am ready for bed!

Oh it was! It was a little spicy for the kids liking, but me and DH loved it! I had a little of the chicken filling I set aside and ate it with tortilla chips, it makes a great dip. I use the Kraft website a lot too.

Our spaghetti was good. I grated cheese on top and baked it in the oven. Ummmmm! My dad phoned while I was making dinner. He had made himself a nice big pizza and when he went to cook it in his oven the element went! He drove the 10 mins to our house to bake his pizza. LOL. Then he took it home to eat. DH & DD weren't home from the grocery store so I had a 30 min visit with my dad while I made cake pops.

Ugh, I feel gross. I know if I go to bed now (8:15 pm) I'll be up at some horrible hour tomorrow...so i'll try to tough it out.

Oh Leah, that Enchilada looks great!!! Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

We ended up with tacos for dinner. I wanted to use up leftovers from tuesday and DH has an issue with leftovers.

Tonight is grilled cheese and soup though, because I really want that now Wink It's florida, but it's chilly here (don't make fun), it was 49 F this morning. I'm from Michigan orginally, but I've adapted and now 60 F feels crisp and chilly to me. lol!

Yes it is a very easy to use website. They even have a search to include or even exclude certain ingredients. Or you can search by low fat, kid friendly, quick and easy, etc.

Thanks for the recipe Leah. I'll definitely hang on to that one.

Heather, you inspired my taste buds so I made spaghetti last night too (well angel hair but close enough). DD doesn't like sauce on noodles so she had hers with just Parmesan cheese but DS went nuts over dinner. I even used spicy marinara so I wasn't sure if he would eat it but he ate a ton. Score!

Random question...so I'm getting DH a pool table for his 30th birthday that's coming up. I've researched what I'm getting endlessly and now I'm just stuck between green and tan cloth for the top. Stupid I know but this is a long term investment. My house is very rustic with lots of wood and browns/cremes/tans so tan would really fit in but green is so traditional for pool tables...I don't know. Anyone have any thoughts or general opinions?

Ashley - Glad I could inspire! My DD doesn't really like pasta or sauce so she doesn't eat spaghetti. We don't push different foods on her because I don't feel it's worth the fight. She eats healthy so that's all that matters! One days she'll eat normally, right? I was picky at her age but now I love different food!

As for the pool table, I'd probably go with green because it's classic and if you ever wanted to re-sell it you might have an easier time. That said, I know absolutely NOTHING about this topic. Blum 3

I have SO been into grilled cheese lately! SO good! There's just something simple but good about them. My tummy loves the idea of them too!

Ashley - I do think the green is tradtional, but I think the tan is so elegant looking in a house, especially if you are getting one with the leather pockets. SOrry, that wasn't much help, lol!

I did stop at whole foods and got some fruit and milk, but didn't make it out of the store without a dozen mini chocolate cupcakes! I ate 3! :eek: they were so good. I felt bad so as I was checking out I threw a copy of fit pregnancy on top of them. They must have thought I was crazy.

Oh, and I remembered why I don't shop at whole foods much. 3 apples, 3 oranges, 1 1/2 organic milk, mini cupcakes and the magazine and I paid $25. The lady in front of me bill was $439 and she hardly had a cart full. I wasn't nosy enough to spy on what she bought. I love that store, but they are expensive.

Noelle: no that's helpful, thanks. I don't shop at whole foods or similar stores much for the same reason, so dang expensive! But they do sometimes have some really yummy stuff. Don't feel bad about the cupcakes, I made those brownies the other day and ate about 3/4 of the pan in 24 hours then threw the rest away before I could eat them. :doh:

My 4 dozen cookies lasted 2 days. Less than 48 hours actually. And DH only had 2. My kids probably had 3-5 each. And I ate the rest.

I feel your pain. My DH doesn't like sweets whatsoever. He could go the rest of his life without a "treat" and probably wouldn't notice. I can barely go a day!

My DH is a diabetic so you'd think he'd steer clear of sweets......not so Wink He can eat a heaping bowl of icecream like nobody else. He also really can't stomach the "sugar free" treats (they make him sick) so he just eats the real deal goodies with me! And adjusts his insulin accordingly LOL.

I do like sweets but when I run out for a nighttime snack is is most often salty things - I like chips better than chocolate.

About the pool table... my gut feeling was "go with green." BUT... I don't know... when you described your house I could totally see the tan. Maybe you can post of pic of where the table will go???

It'll go where the foosball table is at the moment. The other option I have is lighter wood vs dark wood but was leaning towards dark with all the walnut stained wood in the room (the bar area just outside the pic has wood cabinets the same color as the beam in this pic).

i think dark wood and tan would match really well, but for resale usually green goes better. If you don't plan on re selling tho i wouldn't worry about that. I bought my ex a used table once and he was angry i got him red.... o well.

When I'm pregnant is the only time I crave sweets. I'd rather have a second helping of pasta than dessert when I'm not pregnant (which isn't much better)

Thanks ladies. I chatted with my MIL yesterday about it too and she said the same thing. I just wasn't sure if it was a good thing or not to have it match. I hate stressing over details but its a big purchase!

ETA: Forgot to mention I found out yesterday one of my best friends is due at the end if August. Pretty excited to have a preggo buddy.

I say tan too. Gorgeous space!

Speaking of rooms, we just bought a couch from rooms to go. Its a slate color, but looks slightly purple in our lighting. I need some ideas for pillows that will brighten the couch up (In retrospect, I wish I had gone with at lighter color, but DH was worried about stains even though it is supposed to be stain resistant)

I like your couch a lot. It took me months to find this couch that you can barely see in the pic, but it's similar, a U-shaped sectional with a chaise for the other side. So for me to say I like another couch is pretty serious! lol
Thanks for the compliment Smile It's our basement great room - we just finished our basement last year and I'm loving it! But it is sooo empty (obviously, look at my bare walls!). Decorating is expensive and I'm cheap. :thumbsdown:

Ashley - I agree...dark wood and tan would look great in that room!!!

Noelle - Yay for new furniture! Dark IS nice. The couch in our formal living room is dark brown and it's great. I did scotch guard is and we don't really do a lot of messy activities in there...but it IS nice to have a dark colour. My friend with 3 kids made WHITE slipcovers for all her couches. WHAT? She tells me it's easier because she can bleach the slipcovers but that seem like SO much more work.

Has anyone seen my brain? On my way to drop DD off at daycare I realized I had NO makeup on! Oops! I normally only wear foundation and powder but STILL. My face looks so splotchy and I had black rings under my eyes. Sad Not only that but I had a chiropractor appt after daycare drop-off and needed to go to the bank and Costco! Ugh! So I swung by the drug store and used a foundation sample to make myself look somewhat presentable. Too funny! Blum 3

Haha. I always freak out when I leave without makeup too. I only wear eyeliner, mascara and undereye concealer, but if I have no makeup on, I look like DEATH. I have thin skin and the dark circles under my eyes are horrendous.

Hope you locate your brain soon!!!

I've slowly been wearing less and less makeup as the years go by. Usually I just put on some powder to reduce the "shine." If I'm feeling particularly ambitious I put some eye makeup on too.

As for couches/sofas... leather is the way to go with small kids!! It only takes a kid to puke on the couch one time, and you realize that fabric just isn't going to cut it.

Agreed! We have vinyl in our family room, which is where we spend most of our time. We originally bought it because my step daughter is special needs and gets everything all gummed up. Plus, she still uses sippy cups. Let me tell you the force at which a 15 year old can throw a sippy cup at is enough to splatter milk in places you thought it couldn't go! She has actually managed to dislodge the valves before because she throws them so hard! So ya, vinyl/leather is great. Our couch is a cheap-o one and is really wearing out where I sit all the time. LOL. I re-arranged the room to put myself at the other end of the couch but now that end is wearing out too! LOL

Our fabric couch is in BAD condition LOL! We got it from my IL's when we first got married and it has served it's purpose well, but soon we will have to replace it. That couch has been colored, peed, puked, and pooped on! Not to mention food spills. The fabric is hanging on by it's last thread!
