People are so foolish about this kind of thing.

That's a tough vote. I'm not sure which way I would want to go. I think that with social security having such a risky future, I might be inclined to vote to opt out and then invest the additional money in my paycheck.

Ah, gotcha. I guess I don't entirely know what Ed does, so I didn't realize that his job would be affected by something like that!

Maybe you should ask Leslie to ask her DH about this. The City of Arlington has been out of SS for a long time. The retirement plan is through TMRS (Texas Municipal Retirement System) and they have a 401K and a 457 plan too. As far as I know it's a good thing.

Oh! I got exciting news last night! My friend Nicole got engaged over the weekend! She was so nonchalant about it and managed to wait the whole day to tell us at happy hour. If that were me, I would have been in everyone's office first thing in the morning showing off my ring!

The ring is absolutely gorgeous. The diamond was in a ring that her fiance's grandfather gave to his grandmother for their 25th anniversary. He had a new setting created for it, but I think that's so special that he used that diamond.

So I have a fun wedding to look forward to next fall! They're hoping to have it in one of the wineries north of here. Possibly the one he proposed at.

So at happy hour we were celebrating an engagement, my friend Kaitlyn's wedding (yesterday was her first day back at work after her honeymoon) and my friend Rachel's divorce, which is being finalized today.

Even Vinny commented that that was quite the range of celebrations and then asked if anyone was knocked up to complete the cycle. LOL!

Has anyone heard of sugaring? Apparently it's a slightly less painful, but equally effective, form of waxing. Maria was telling us about it so I think she and I might go in a few weeks.

Vinny chimed in that a woman with a Brazilian is very sexy. We may have crossed to a new level of friendship with him last night!

Tracy, do you have the option(not really the word I am looking for) to contact your DR teacher about the SS change thing? Did you have a teacher or do it online, I can't remember. Look around on DR's site and see if there is any info or suggestions.

Just a thought...

We never had that problem back in 2007 before the road construction was complete and we had multiple floods in a two month time frame.
Oh gosh! I saw on the news this morning that you and TX had 5+" of rain already in less than 24 hours w/ another 5 more predicted for many areas!

When it comes all at once that fast the creeks & roads can't keep up.
Like us in March.
CRAZY!
I hope Ed stays safe while driving!

I could never hold that kind of news in all day. How exciting for her! A reception at a winery sounds romantical.

not yet. As of right now it's just a system that has the potential to become a storm. There have been some insane systems moving around out there and just now is the first time that there hasn't really been anything. The system that is out there now is really far away still so there is some hope that it will stay away.

They have meetings I can go to. I watched the powerpoint presentations already. I just don't know if it's right for me. They can't/won't answer questions about individuals. They only say 'vote based on what's best for you'. Generic and lame.

I want the DEETS!

Oh??? Too bad he's taken. I like him.

I haven't heard of this sugaring thing. I will have to check it out online or something. Though, I have to admit, I'm nervous about photos popping up. NSFW.

This is quite an informative article about it. I think it's a little pricier than a waxing, but might be worth it!

Vinny totally loves us. For 12 martinis, 8 shots, 5 beers, pizza, and wings, our bill only came to $82. He didn't charge us for any of the shots (SoCo & lime for the first round, Cafe Patron for the second), the wings, at least a couple of the beers, and a few of the martinis. It's nice to be friends with the bartender!
Wowza! Awesomesauce!

The ring is absolutely gorgeous. The diamond was in a ring that her fiance's grandfather gave to his grandmother for their 25th anniversary. He had a new setting created for it, but I think that's so special that he used that diamond.

So I have a fun wedding to look forward to next fall! They're hoping to have it in one of the wineries north of here. Possibly the one he proposed at.
That is exciting news! Sounds like you all had a regular ball last night.

She wheels me into the back room and tells me to get on the bed. She sees me struggling to breathe and I ask her to help me on the bed and she says "No, you can do it yourself". Then she is yelling at me to take off my shirt so she can put electrobes on my chest. I ask her to help me and again she replies, "No, you can do it yourself". So I get undressed and they put the elecrodes on me and the Dr comes in to listen to my chest and he can hear my breathing is shallow and labored and he asks me to breathe quieter. They take a chest x-ray and a ct scan and say all is normal and sends me home with 101 fever and blames it on the fibromyalgia.
There's no excuse for that.

I'm back and I'm all clean and shiny now! Ed woke up for a few minutes, but managed to go back to sleep. He must be exhausted to still be sleeping!

That's wonderful! NO man is an angel, so if you've got one that loves you and takes good care of you, that sounds pretty good to me!

Interesting...
I wonder if the at home version works?
You could try it at home first (leg) and see how it feels.

Then tells me it's gonna be hard for him to leave work early to come home and get the boys and go all the way back for services tonight (it is Rosh Hashanah). Poor baby! Not once asked me how I am feeling, if I needed anything. He is on my list!
That just sucks. I'm sorry Aly. Men can really be buttheads.

I haven't heard of this sugaring thing. I will have to check it out online or something. Though, I have to admit, I'm nervous about photos popping up. NSFW.
He informed us that he is never getting married. He's been with his girlfriend for 2.5 years and has no intention of proposing. Said it's just not for him. Weird.

The link I posted is safe! No inappropriate pictures, actually I don't think there were any pictures at all!
