    I caved, have to hop on and do about two hours of work. The emails haven't stopped and since this is a short week and the tone of the emails I have been receiving have been increasingly passive aggressive it's time I get this ship righted.

    Hubby is drilling (Navy) in Newport, RI this week (his 1st spring break). I'm at home with the pets, morning/all day sickness, and a bum knee. And tomorrow I have a night meeting. Ugh.

    Have you tried eating candied ginger or drinking ginger tea? I remember the feeling of fatigue, too, and taking 6 hour naps. It's temporary...

    I hate when the first day of the week I see my voicemail box has 10 messages, my email is full, and I am not feeling like "catching up". Ugh.

    I've tried the ginger route previously and it hasn't really worked. Ginger ale isn't even working this time. Woe is me. It isn't the worst m/s ever but it certainly doesn't feel great. I'm hoping there are just a few more weeks of the nausea. With the other pregnancies it eased up around 11 - 12 weeks.

    that's why we are all here, to avoid work.

    I need to start and finish up my mid-term review documents and something for my ordinance amendments...plus I didn't sleep well last night, need some new pillows.

    Let's see if I have something else to whine about....I got nothing

    Turns out the problem with the back door wasn't so much the hardware as the door itself. Now I have very attractive escutcheons and doorknobs on a door that doesn't close properly and a major bit of repair work to do this Spring. The previous owners apparently believed that brute force was always the best approach even where a light touch would do just as well.

    Someone is a grumpy gus this morning... with that said, I like when people respond to the listserv with unsubscribe. It is clearly marked that you have to go to the place where you subscribed and put your email in and his unsubscribe. Now 400 people know you don't want to be on the list you subscribed for. Thanks.

    It's a rainy, windy day here, and I've finished my "gottas" for the day. Thinking about heading down to the bookstore to browse a bit...

    Why did they just touch down and go... seems dangerous?

    Pretty standard pattern work that most military aircraft do at regional airports. They shoot an approach, come in for a mock landing and then hit the engines and circle around a few times. I've seen Harriers, C-130s of all kinds including the big orange ones from the Coast Guard, and helicopters doing it.

    My fair city experienced the worst possible in 1992 - a C-130 crashing into a hotel and restuarant.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
