Hey there, Sorry I didn't come by yesterday. I don't know why I was busy,..what on earth was I doing? Actually, I had a couple little things to do yesterday that ended up with me and my work partner waiting a ton, and then all of a sudden the day was gone! Luckily, the day involved plenty of cake and ice cream to make up for all the waiting. http://bestsmileys.com/eating2/1.gif MICHELE - >Where is everybody? I'm starting to take it personally -- and lately it seems like threads die after I post -- or go on but like I was never there. I'm beginning to feel a little paranoid about it What on EARTH are you talking about, you weirdo?! >I've been really bad today. I ate THREE chocolate chip cookies. Okay, THAT'S better! LOL. Yeah, Aunt Flo, the major beeeatch. She's really put a damper on the week. (ewww, LOL) > So tell us all about your birthday.....Did you ever get a piece of cake? Thanks! I had a nice birthday. My actual bday was with my family, and the day after was spent celebrating with friends. My family took me out for sushi and hmm, I GUESS somebody must have mistakenly thought that I wouldn't like to eat cake after sushi. http://bestsmileys.com/expressions/6.gif But I'll forgive, as they all must have been mighty jetlagged. But with that and Aunt Flo on my a$$ (ewww, LOL), I was raging for cake by the 29th. Lucky for me, I had many opportunities to have cake and ice cream! And I took every single opportunity to my advantage. The best was discovering a branch of COLD STONE ice cream. http://www.coldstonecreamery.com/icecream/ice_cream.html My work partner promptly bought me some. http://bestsmileys.com/eating1/3.gif It was divine! >I did not workout yesterday and I MUST do it today. I MUST!!!! I'm not talking about that today. LOL quietly. DANA - >Yes Michele - I am mad at you. You're always doing your fancy typing and I must admit that you make me feel a bit inferior Yeah, yeah, give it to Michele!! LMAO. So Aunt Flo was with you before she came over here? That witch. >I am getting so old!!!! Oh, brother!!! What is this, down with ME week at Hatesville?! Cheers to Gabe! I hope he's enjoying his school. JANJAN - Hiya! Thanks for dropping in to wish me a happy bday! DIANE - Thanks for the bday wishes! >"you may want to bring a barrette to the hospital." LMAO! Too funny. >I know I talk non stop about the pregnancy and I hope that doesn't bother any one. It is pretty much the only thing on my mind. Yeah, well, I supppppose that's all right, just so long as you don't go on and on about your cats. http://bestsmileys.com/angles/9.gif Actually, I've never been so involved with a pregnancy before, and personally, I find it pretty cool! >Today I am just one month away from the due date! OMG, you're KITTENS! Er, I mean, you're KIDDING!! Wow, that is totally soon! Ack!!!! JEN - Does Kashi have different flavors? I wish Kashi were available here. I think I had it when I was in the States last summer and thought it was all right. Maybe I just needed another box of it to have it kick in, because I do love cereal. What makes it so high in protein?
