Yes it's frustrating that there's no cable competition and in fact Comcast continues to get bigger and bigger. I believe they own NBC now?

So I was doing fine and then suddenly my tummy started feeling weird. DH got me a couple of antacids and I really didn't want to move for awhile. After about 45 minutes, including some shivering, I got up and ran to the bathroom. *sigh* Don't worry, no description. Let's just say I feel a tad better now but I did just basically sit on the couch for another half hour, under a blanket. Bleah.

Does that qualify as food poisoning?

Three of them have been together for three years, three others were together on a different team for two years. It was a really rewarding year for me, seeing the growth over the years in individual and team behavior - we have ADD, ADHD, Asperger's, ODD diagnoses for some of the team members, plus two that are pretty bossy and two that cry easily - it's always been dramatic, and this year, no tears, minimal bossing! Last year's teamwork score was 27/100 - this year was 68/100. Yea for progress! They want to stay together as a team and I'm excited to see how they come along


Global finals would cost ~$14K, so I'm hoping they do well at State, but not too well That much fundraising (in a month!!!) intimidates me!
I realized I didn't say something about this. I did think it! lol Congrats! And yeah I hear ya on the money... how many are there? But that's awesome. Great work!

So Shadow's poop was semi-firm today. An improvement. I know you have just been waiting to hear.

I was at the game in Atlanta when they had Phil's retirement ceremony, somebody gave him a rocking chair and it was hysterical!

The NASCAR commentators from one of the networks - I think FOX - gave Mark Martin and Rusty Wallace rocking chairs when they announced their retirement in 2005. But then the driver who was supposed to replace Martin couldn't get out of his contract with his previous team, so Martin agreed to drive the car for another year... and he's still driving part time so IMO he never really retired. I've wondered since what he did with that chair. LOL

Quiet day around these parts.

Not much going on here... just trying to get cards made for various challenges and get a few things done around the house. In about 45 minutes I need to head over to the high school to help serve dinner to the district jazz band participants.

If they make the connection at Dallas ( their first flight was over an hour late) then my friends arrive here from the UK at 6pm. We've been making beds, moving beds, moving furniture, blowing up air beds. And DH thought last night was a good time to have people over for dinner so all day yesterday was cleaning, too!

Only thing was there was a mixup. We *think* that when W printed out the email she'd received with each school's orders (cheese or pepperoni pizza, and what type of drink), that the paper didn't feed correctly at the page break, because the printout was missing 3 of the participating schools. So we ended up running out of water bottles. Ooops. But somehow she had calculated the pizza so that there were two pizzas left over.

So I got a few big hugs from sweet little Hunter Girl because she was chosen to participate from our elementary school. The music teacher is out on maternity leave so the principal was filling in as teacher/chaperone. There was a slight awkward moment when I was chatting with the principal and Hunter Girl came up and asked me when I'd be at school again. (The principal and secretary are the ones who set up the sub jobs.) I told Hunter Girl that it depends on how often I get called to work, and that sometimes I get called when I have other things going on, but that I hoped I'd get a chance to work in 5th grade before the end of the year so I could see her.
Sounds like a really special evening despite the beverage confusion. How lovely to feel that loved.

NO CLUE that donkeys and mules were ever considered rodeo animals....

well, let me tell you what. Rodeo Houston is an equal opportunity Rodeo and it competes all animals in all categories...
I'd love to have alpacas. I'll bet Sonny would love it too--I can just see him herding them around the yard...

Sounds like you had a great time E!

I'm so glad your NY sister will be going.

That must be such a tough decision when you want to be there but need to take care of things at home, too.

I think your Mom has a point. I know if it were me, I'd rather see people while I'm still around to enjoy it. I know it means a lot to be there too, though. There's so much warmth in sharing memories with people who share that sense of loss, and share those recollections of someone you love so much.

When they called the sudden meeting we were all terrified they were going to whack our entire dept. I was hoping the fact they didn't call us all in to meet in person was a good sign.

I'd left the laptop up by mistake.

Holy cow I wonder how Comcast survives.

I'm on week 3 of my endless sinus headache punctuated by intermittent bouts of severe nausea. I'm in a bad enough mood to hurt them for you. I've been to the Dr several times, they still think it's maybe allergies, maybe a very long migraine, basically they just have no freakin' idea. They do know it's not a sinus infection because they can't see any stuff up there.

I'm tired of my head pounding and I've thrown up 4x in the last several days.

Can't wait to go in to work tomorrow.

I bet you'll be spending a lot of time in front of your tv. I hope your cable problems are all sorted out before then!

And that's so cute and punny... Mark Madness. Love it.

Three of them have been together for three years, three others were together on a different team for two years. It was a really rewarding year for me, seeing the growth over the years in individual and team behavior - we have ADD, ADHD, Asperger's, ODD diagnoses for some of the team members, plus two that are pretty bossy and two that cry easily - it's always been dramatic, and this year, no tears, minimal bossing! Last year's teamwork score was 27/100 - this year was 68/100. Yea for progress! They want to stay together as a team and I'm excited to see how they come along

Global finals would cost ~$14K, so I'm hoping they do well at State, but not too well That much fundraising (in a month!!!) intimidates me!
Congratulations Alyson! That's so cool!!! It must be so much fun to watch that camaraderie develop, as well as seeing so many kids improve individually! That's wonderful!

I hope things go great (but not too great!) at State!

Let's just say I feel a tad better now but I did just basically sit on the couch for another half hour, under a blanket. Bleah.

Does that qualify as food poisoning?
You have my sympathy.

I hope you all have a wonderful, wonderful time! Please tell them your friend here on the East Coast says they should be very happy staying with the best hosts in your city!!!

Well I'm off to eat more sinus Advil, which at least helps some.

G'night y'all.

And that's so cute and punny... Mark Madness. Love it.
OH did I forget the update yesterday? The third cable card worked. I guess I did sleep all day yesterday.

I'm on week 3 of my endless sinus headache punctuated by intermittent bouts of severe nausea. I'm in a bad enough mood to hurt them for you. I've been to the Dr several times, they still think it's maybe allergies, maybe a very long migraine, basically they just have no freakin' idea. They do know it's not a sinus infection because they can't see any stuff up there.

I'm tired of my head pounding and I've thrown up 4x in the last several days.

Can't wait to go in to work tomorrow.
That is so not right. Geez, you have to get rid of it.

I think you did mention it. I just hope it still works - that it doesn't crash on you.

Jane, I hope you get to feeling better soon. You've been under the weather for much too long.
