be responsible and don't spread germs, it's flue time.
Same thing with any kid that has to be kept home from school. Flu, chicken pox, etc. These kids should be at home recuperating not out shopping with their parents.

I am now enjoying the Vampire Diaries, and Supernatural. I love that they are on one right after the other, so I get horror fix on Thursday evenings.

Favoritism on the boards, that's my vent. Thought I'd get it out before I end up leaving this place.

Wanna talk about it? I haven't been around much to see what's going on lately.

I just got a little worked up over nothing, just that I see some folks like to be THE authority on everything and no one can disagree.

But, there's more than one way to skin a cat. Eh? So not any one way is always right.

venting about people that can't make a decision. i used to cook the whole thanksgiving menu by myself . last year i bowed out. i am to old for all that work. in an case here we are the the younger set (50 being the oldest) can't decide what to do, dinner here, or a sat buffet. dinner on the day , my favorite. just decide already. tell me what to bring and get on it. another thing , they seem to buy a lot of ready made desserts.

I hear ya... I have a brother-in-law that can't make a decision about anything, although he serves on boards, has an important job, etc... Drives us nuts, too.

No kidding, I decided a number of years ago I was not going to make another pie for a family dinner, I wanted to try my hand at other things. I even offered to show those interested how to make the pie crust that they loved. No takers and now, whoever just brings a store pie for dessert. I've stuck to my guns and every year I change things up a bit, serving something old and new, knocking the socks off everyone. This year will be a Mediterranean style meal and the apartment smells heavenly.

Oh boy does this sound familiar. I stopped making the Holiday Meals for everyone and guess what no one else wanted to do it after I quit! I didn't know what to think after since I never got invited to anyone elses after all the work I put into the many meals and didn't get much help doing them either. I can only chalk it all up to laziness on the part of everyone else. Oh well too bad for them, I'm still enjoying a great meal with just me and hubby. To me this is pretty sad!
