TW Tuesday 3/14

Who's on your list this week?!

Re: TW Tuesday 3/14

  • Right now? My work VPN. I'm supposed to be teleworking (Fed employees can do unscheduled telework because of the weather) and it's not connecting to any of the servers. We have servers in Norfolk, San Diego, and Hawaii. I'm not driving into work because I don't have a parking spot and am not walking my pregnant behind 3/4 of a mile on ice and the Metro bus service is now severely limited for my area. I refuse to burn leave because I am saving it all for the baby. Fun times.

    My hubbys job! With this snow storm (we got 2 inches**eyeroll**) and they mandated that my husband stay overnight into today and he missed my anatomy scan this morning and they wouldn't let me record or FaceTime with him   :'(

  • Winter Storm Stella is top of my TW list, followed by my city administration which has made zero effort to plow that I can tell.
    My Subaru Forester is half buried already! The second yard flamingo is long gone!

  • @lfk2013 I was totally freaking out because the same thing was happening to me this morning but then I realized I had accidentally turned off the wifi switch on the computer. 

    @nktrodden826 that seriously blows! Hopefully they gave you tons of printouts

    @nktrodden826 awww I'm sorry :( u should have rescheduled honestly !
  • There are two men at work who are acting like stereotypical women (emphasis on stereotypical), with all their drama and backstabbing. They wasted so much of my time today. Assholes.

  • TB app is on my list because the first thing I saw when I logged in was "Eating junk food affects baby more than you realize" and I was about to sit down and enjoy a nice snack of nachos.

    Oh my goodness @GlitterFish I hope someone else is shoveling that for you!  We are moving to upstate NY for our next military duty station and I've become too much of a whimp to deal with the northeast winter again.

  • @lfk2013 I always try to tag you as "ifk" and it takes me too long to realize it's a lowercase L. Anyway that is such a bummer - did you end up going in?? Hopefully the servers started working. ugh. 

    @nktrodden826 that sucks :( sorry DH missed the scan. I wouldn't have rescheduled personally bc the timing of the scans is important, plus I would not want to wait any longer. it stinks they wouldn't let you FaceTime him though :( 

    @GlitterFish At least Stella actually hit you guys lol. We were supposedly getting 12-24 inches and it's maybe 4 inches and just nasty wind and rain now. Not even pretty. ick.

    My TWT is Stella bc I loooove a good snow storm and it was lame here (just outside NYC).

  • @irishrose54 it's so drifted from the crazy wind right now I have no idea how much there actually is...probably around 2 feet

    Haha, I also saw that post! It really makes me think twice about eating junk, but it seems to be all baby wants!

    I told my mom about this article and her response was "I ate very healthy when I was pregnant with you and look what happened"  :s

    @OperaSingerMommy Are you going to Ft Drum? They normally get it a lot worse than here! My coworker drives there to see her bf every weekend!

    @irishrose54 I definitely wish you had kept it!!!

  • @GlitterFish West Point!  I went to college in Ithaca so I've done the hardcore snow thing but MAN I'm not ready for that again!  Luckily we don't go for almost a year and a half so I have time to enjoy a bit more sunshine lol.

  • @GlitterFish Haha, I always thought anything that wasn't the city was upstate.  I only lived in NY for college so I guess I'll need to work on the lingo, lol.

  • TW is DH, he has been stealing my body wash. He has his own and it took me forever to find one I liked since I am real sensitive to fragrances/perfumes this just smells fresh and clean like an open window which is perfect. 

    it's just a regular body wash you can get at any big store but the closest "big store" is half an hour away. So I am dangerously close to being out of body wash and I have no desire to drag two toddlers a half hour each way in this cold to buy more nor will I use his wash. Ugh

    Lol, you are hardly alone!

  • @Dcwtada see if Amazon Now has it. It delivers within two hours 
  • @BusyZee wait what? What is this magic of which you speak? I have amazon prime but this sounds different.  
  • Ahh poop, we are not a zip code they deliver to yet. Whomp whomp- I almost had a life changing moment.

  • @mslynn2012 NO No and NOOOOOOOOO. Give me swamp weather. Give me 100% humidity. Don't care. Warm weather can't be your TW when we're all buried in a blizzard here!

  • I'm sorry to get your hopes up ! But amazon now is a life saver! @Dcwtada

    I almost felt guilty about my post, but if you could see the pool of sweat I'm sitting in, you'd understand. (Or maybe you wouldn't - I'm a SoCal girl born and raised, so I remain blissfully ignorant to your blizzard weather...)

    We get our share of those 87/feels like 120 days here, too...but I feel like a good blizzard here and there balances it all out. (definitely wishing for the crying/laughing emoji right now)
