What was odd was that I'd comment and hit "track conversation" then 20 minutes later see I wasn't updated. I do have an old log-in from years ago, I just have to find it. If not, I'll just keep using StinaRocks. Cuz I kinda do!:D
Yes. Yes you do!

I think we were talking about how nice your one eye is.

BTW, stop looking at me like that.

We're going to be driving SIL and Fiance down to school tomorrow. Had a blowout with her the other night about her not being able to clean up after herself and do what we ask her to do around the house. She claimed she'd be moving her stuff out of our house at Christmas. A-okay with me.

So I've been wanting to go visit my bro and family in teh midwest for awhile but haven't gotten to it because it can be pricey and it's out of the way and it's hard to get time off. But my nieces have both had babies and I haven't been there and should really go. He e-mailed me today and said Weird Al is coming there (finally). I looked at the date and was a Monday (dammit). Then I relized that it's a Monday HOLIDAY! So it's a long weekend from work (I'd only have to take one day off) and we'd get to hang out (he is SO FUN to hang with) and I can see everyone. I just can't decide if I should really soend the cash right now... And I don't want hinm to think it's just to see Al - it just brought it to my attention and seems like the timing is right. Hmmm... what to do?!

Plus, I would have to take that Tuesday off and I wanted to take the following Friday off to be wioth my kid, who has a half day at school. I don't want to push it.

Go. Work will be there when you get back. Call in sick that following Friday to stay home with your child. As they say, no one ever said they wished they worked more on their death bed. Live now. Since you're visiting family, it should be a cheaper trip than say a full vacation trip.

I say go, buuutttt, how secure is your job? I mean I'm all for going, but you gotta think of your kid and her security and all that. If your job is secure, just go then call in friday tell them you're sick. And don't tell them you're going out of town though. Just take off Tuesday as a personal day then Friday, you're sick. Shithappens.

My job is very secure. I guess it's more of a guilt thing. I do have los of time saved up. There's just always so much to do here! I'll give it some thought. My other thing is that I'd love to take my daughter WITH me to the family, but that's REALLY too much $!

Stina, GO! Forget the guilt! You owe work NOTHING. Go have a blast! Or we will harass and haunt you!

Well if you have the time saved up screw the guilt. Just go. Have some adult time, go see Weird Al. Then invite them down for the holidays or something so you and your daughter can be with family together and they will be doing the traveling not you. PLUS they get to be in FL for the winter and not the stupid snowy Midwest. Win/win/win.
