I am well and blessed, sprite. For wintertime, I'm feeling a lot of light this year --- within and without.

hi kids, the ax variation on car part is an ice skating move
7:08 am

Nipped back to say that I do sometimes get up in the middle of the night - frozen I might add, and play Babble until it's too cold to keep going!
7:08 am

that is wonderful, ch1212! Great to see all the work on the 'inner self' pays off. Same here, doing well and so far free from the winter depression. Everything being snow-covered helps, grin, it is SO white!
7:08 am

hi JBV!
7:09 am
JBV

hi sprite - I've been seeing pictures of the snow in Europe on the news - is it so unusual for this time of year? or just too much of it?
7:09 am
MollyL

JBV, I tried cluing the ax as a skating move once. I had no idea how many people think it's spelled the same as the car part.
7:09 am
Patxxx

But, I'm in good company as none of you lovely lot can possibly still be sane. Literate, but nuts!
7:09 am

they showed people stuck in their cars in Italy - the highway people were bringing them food!

until last year we had a streak of warm (and wet) winters. Last year and this year are much more like the old times. Snow is not unusual in winter, but the amounts in such a short time are.

babble fish are words you should have found without help, but didn't, because sometimes you just go blind. Words that, after having been clued and found, make you hit yourself over the head with a fish.

For the Moms...my sister was married when her kids were young. (She's divorced now). But her husband was on the road all the time. So my sister basically raised her kids on her own. She was visiting my her daughter, SIL and granddaughter this weekend. After my niece handed baby girl off to Daddy for a bath, she gave my sister a big hug and said "Mom how did you do this all by yourself all these years." My sister said it was a golden moment of Motherhood.

we all do what we have to do,after my wife gave birth to our son the same night we came home,she developed a painful and dangerous blood clot from the birth and was hospitalized for a month doe to that and other compilcations,so i took care of our child alone for the first month,and brought him in every day for momma,brought bottled breast milk homes for the night feedings..lol was doing so much laundry at the start when i had a basket of clean clothes i would just toss the kid on top and carry him around that way as there was no one else to watch..will never forget that first month..now he is 17 and grunts at me...lol

I live 34 miles frm work, and have to drive over a mountain pass, whch is hideous in winter. I want a shorter commute and better facilities - I live out in the sticks
1:38 pm
stidmama

It's a good thing for the reasons listed but a bad thng as it has come on account of husband's philandering and my finding out
1:38 pm
stidmama

esp. the shorter commute bit.
1:38 pm
Glantarell

thanks for the hot cider, it's lovely - do you know that all british cider is alcoholic?
1:38 pm
stidmama

*stern mama look at philanderers everywhere* what a terrible thing to discover!
1:39 pm

for real??? in the states, if it has alcohol we call it "hard cider"
1:39 pm
dfmchfhf

*makes a mental note not to go to Britain for cider*
1:39 pm

4:01 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Grieving online for a nice person you never met is bizarre when your real family is sitting near
4:02 pm
Kaplan the Magne

But "real " is in the eye of the beholder, or something like that
4:02 pm

Kap, it's amazing how much affection you can develop for a person you have never met face to face. I fell for my husband that way (not on a dating site)

4:04 pm
MollyL

Dan and I were helping a mutual friend with some web design work. Because of that we started emailing each other, and it got less about the work and more about the relationship.
4:04 pm
Kaplan the Magne

It's very sad- I've been chatting with these folks for 5 years. Never met this woman but knew all about her family...
4:04 pm

4:05 pm

The internet has extended many people's web of relations, and links to the past.

Jennifer Anniston's dad is still there too, my sister told me that
4:24 pm

It's OK- just led to a musing on the reality of virtual friendships...

I mean Gian. Someone noticed she hadn't posted since her surgery...
4:34 pm
stidmama

so. I just learned that Tarell is a river in Wales, and it means something like bubbling spring?
4:34 pm
jmcnrick

you are glan on my computer glan
4:34 pm
stidmama

surgery? Jill?
4:34 pm
MollyL

I think it's an internet cookie issue for Glant. She said Jilli's profile was one of the first things she clicked on using her new computer.
4:35 pm
Kaplan the Magne

No- no one here.
4:35 pm
stidmama

did you try clearing the cache, glantarell?

My girlie-in-law the nurse just gave me holy hell about that 3 aspirin thing. I have always heard that two was not enough.
4:35 pm
Glantarell

I have just owndered because most of my friends are virtual (although I have met osem of thme in erson) and I have always windered how I would know if something haoppeed to them (other than their invisibily online)
4:36 pm
stidmama

oh! I see. surgery, even common ones, can be hazardous.
4:36 pm
jmcnrick

two is enough -- more is pointless
4:36 pm
stidmama

Glantarell needs to put the whiskey down and back away slowly...
4:36 pm
Glantarell

stidmama - tarell is a river, and it runs about 25 yards from my house - which is called 'Glan Tarell' - meaning 'on the banks of the \tarell'.
4:36 pm
jmcnrick

we have worried about that here glan -- especially when a couple were having *ahem* emotional issues

4:41 pm

lol, Champ. My stepmother does that to. Strikes up a convo with a total stranger. I keep telling her, she's either going to get robbed or kidnapped.
4:41 pm

4:41 pm

i have to force myself to talk to people at parties
4:41 pm
stidmama

yes. I LOVE teaching, dread being in meetings or parent nights... go home after the latter two and have to sit quietly in a dark room for a bit. But teaching actually wires me up. *shrug* I am weird.
4:42 pm
Pinikula

I'd carry them in solid covered bags and wrap on arrival...
4:42 pm
MollyL

Can't help Red. Haven't flown in 30 years.
4:42 pm
Glantarell

wrap those gifts and fly - the worst that can hppen is that the cusoms guys open them#
4:42 pm
ChampFit

Well, there's that. You tell your kids not to speak to strangers, then you go out and do exactly that!
4:42 pm
stidmama

red, the scuttlebutt is best to NOT wrap anything in advance.
4:42 pm
redturtlehead

ok thanks jmc, I hate to fly.
4:42 pm
stidmama

take flat wrapping paper and wrap once you get there.
4:42 pm
stidmama

OR. wrap the packages and put them through the checked bags.
4:42 pm

4:43 pm

they just xray carry on anyway
4:43 pm

Champ - and she will ask the most hair-curling personal questions just out of the blue. Makes me want to crawl in the nearest sewer access.
4:43 pm

What about shipping them?
4:43 pm
MollyL

My boss is going to see her Mother in Florida for Christmas. She UPS'd all the gifts ahead of time.
4:43 pm
carleekat

i love flying..security or no
4:43 pm
jmcnrick

they unwrap them in checked luggage sometimes too
4:43 pm
Glantarell

they have x-ray machines that can see what's in your wrapped gifts - if you don't have anything weird you'll be fine

I believe grits are made from white corn.
5:09 pm

5:23 pm

5:24 pm

5:24 pm
Kazzer99

i cant crochet at all
5:24 pm

ra4 = anger; ra5 = pt
5:24 pm

5:31 pm
Nef

It's actually 5:30 PM here, Kazzer, I'm tired enough I wish it was bedtime! ;-)
5:31 pm
MollyL

Neither of my grandmother's recipes were passed down. Which is a shame. I have started a tradition of having cooking spoons from my kids Grandmothers. They are to be passed on so that women of subsequent generations will be cooking with the spoons of the women that came before them.
5:31 pm
Nef

Hi Pini and Glant
5:32 pm
garyandjulie

that is a wonderful idea Molly
5:32 pm

It's a cool feeling to know that I am stirring pudding with a spoon that was used by a Mom who came before me to stir pudding for her kids.

And we are entering another winter storm warning; They say we will get another 5 to 8 inches by tomorrow night (most of it should hit tomorrow afternoon; probably during that Vikings' outdoor football game too!)
5:35 pm
