buttons: swan yes, it sounds like he might have done that. I would love to stay up with H however really I need to be asleep by the time he gets home or very soon after

Swan: buttons - my husband asked our son once if I still turned into a pumpkin at 10pm, he then said that he wished the other woman would go to bed at 10pm and give him some quiet time to himself. Apparently she stays up until he is ready to go to bed (he has always been a night owl) and expects him to entertain her until they go to bed, my son said his dad told him that many nights he goes to bed and just lays there so he doesn't have to hear her yammering.

Kmkrn: Hello Swan!

Swan: KmKrn - It looks like we are going to have bad weather this year all over the country, Irma is heading for Florida. I haven't heard anyone say it yet, but if I am recalling correct the last time there were hurricane's like this, we got El Nino here and that brings too much rain, flooding and sadly because everything is so dry mud slides.

Kmkrn: Swan - Yes, I would hate to be a weather reporter right now. I never can understand why they go INTO a storm when everyone else is leaving!

Kmkrn: Swan - I talked to Suz215 over the weekend. I think she knew that we were talking about her. She called to see how we were in our crazy weather situation here.

Kmkrn: Swan - I forgot to change my color again! Sure wish it would remember that for me!

Swan: KmKrn - the news was just saying that Irma should only hit the south part of Florida and that it should be at its end of strength, most of the power will be over the Cuba area, so hopefully that means she will not make a left and hit your area again.

Swan: KmKrn - How is she doing? How funny that we were talking about her and she calls.

Kmkrn: Swan - Yes, I don't think that Houston could handle anymore right now.

Swan: KmKrn - I wish it would keep the color like the other program did, but there isn't any place for me to set that on the back end. Bill forgets sometimes, but when I edit, I just change the colors.

Kmkrn: Swan - She's good. Very busy with her grandson--she says that she is his "G-Uber" or grandma uber!

Swan: KmKrn - I can see that, the two of them are bonded very tightly.

Swan: Hi buttons

Kmkrn: Welcome buttons! How was the start of school?

buttons: Hello ladies...

buttons: Kmkrn the start was tiring. I forget that I end up needing a nap when I get home for the first month or so. I had my old group for the 1.5 hrs and the ones who were challenging struggled even on the first day. How's it going for you?

buttons: hey swan the "new" job still going well?

Kmkrn: buttons - I agree! The first day of school especially I always came home a took a nap before dinner! It's hard to get back in the routine. I'm working a lot already at school too.

Swan: KmKrn - I have done my Uber days for my grandson, but he will be driving himself in a month. He even has a car already, his dad was telling one of his long term customers that his son was learning to drive and she offered to sell him her used car for $3,000.00, he jumped on it because she has a few cars and rarely drives the one she offered him. He says it needs about $400.00 repairs and it will be good to go. He brought it home one night, it looks darn near brand new, but is actually a 2005. With it being a Mercedes my son will be able to maintain it easily since that is what he does.

Swan: buttons - still going good and I enjoy being busy

Kmkrn: Swan - That's great!

Swan: KmKrn - Also the body is far more sound that many cars on the road now, it isn't a tank, but is much better than some of the light weight zippy little cars on the road. He is a good driver and a responsible young man, but things happen.

buttons: Kmkrn it's not even that we had them the whole day, it's adjusting, plus it's nasty humid/hot here and H struggled sleeping so fur baby woke looking for him and well I was awake at 4ish and never really went back to sleep. H is working nights so isn't home until 11 on top of it

Kmkrn: buttons - Yes, that is a schedule that takes some adjusting to for sure!

buttons: swan that's wonderful about the car

buttons: kmkrn he's been doing it for a while now but only near the end of last school year so it didn't really affect anything, it's been mostly since start of summer so it is really going to take adjusting since I'll need to come home and make next day's dinner and ensure fur baby gets a walk, also trust that H will take her for a decent walk before he goes to work

buttons: swan glad to hear it's going good and that you are able to remain busy

Swan: KmKrn - is your husband still home or has he gone back to work? Did he have damage to his apartment?

Swan: buttons - my father in law worked the graveyard shift for decades and I always felt so bad for him because on his days off my mother in law expected him to switch over to her schedule.

buttons: swan H has worked these weird shifts before however it's been on a rotating type situation, there is no way for me to have him switch to my schedule before I'll be up, walking fur baby, going to work and then he'll be gone when I get home. Through the summer he's been awake reasonably early however not as early as I need to be for school, he'll have weekends off which is nice but it'll be a challenge for me as I will nearly fully be responsible for the meals. I feel for your FIL with that expectation having been place on him, that really isn't reasonable

Kmkrn: Swan - My H spent 6 hours driving to Houston very early this morning. It's usually a 3 hour drive. He had to use a different route also since there are a lot of roads closed. It's a mess, but his apartment was OK he said.

Swan: buttons - my mother in law was a very self centered person and she spoke the law! I personally always suspected that he worked that schedule by choice, he would get home from work just in time to drive the kids to school, he then did whatever grocery shopping or other errands that needed to be done, when he got home he would spend about an hour with her, then head upstairs to sleep through the day until it was time to go get the kids from school. By then it was time for dinner, he liked a couple shows and then would take another little nap before heading to work. She didn't work, she didn't drive, she was pretty much a stay at home person. I always hated when my husband would get late shift schedules, but usually I would just stay up later and spend some time with him when he got home, then we would go to bed.

Swan: KmKrn - at least he isn't having to deal with a housing issue, they have shown the roads and mess there on the news, it looks horrible and very challenging for those there

Kmkrn: Swan - Yes, there are a lot of people who weren't so lucky (and don't even have flood insurance)!

Swan: KmKrn - I heard that over 85% of the people don't have flood insurance in that area and federal assistance is going to be delayed.

Kmkrn: Swan - I just checked my email and still nothing from Lisa about resetting my passwords. Luckily I am home now and it is easy to log in since my "smart" computer can remember my password for me.

Kmkrn: Swan - Yes, but the amount of help that is "flooding" into the area is amazing too!

Swan: KmKrn - I will remind her again, I know she has been working some long hours with Disney, but said she was going to have two days off together and would try to get to everything.

Kmkrn: Swan - Thanks!

buttons: swan yes, it sounds like he might have done that. I would love to stay up with H however really I need to be asleep by the time he gets home or very soon after

buttons: swan that's horrible with the insurance, usually the case

Swan: KmKrn - I might try contacting the program IT person too, maybe he can help.

buttons: swan usually the case with natural events

Kmkrn: Swan - It's not urgent. And I am usually home, but on the rare occasion when I am not, I cannot log in.

Swan: buttons - I understand, I didn't do it every night, I had a job, two kids and other responsibilities, but a couple nights a week I would try. With him going to work around 3pm, he was usually gone before I got home.

buttons: swan right

Swan: buttons - I am a regulated sleeper, typically up by 6am and in bed by 10pm, have been that way most of my life, in fact my husband always called 10pm pumpkin time. When I was in Missouri and working midnight to morning and then going to my second job until 2pm and trying to sleep after that, it was so hard for me, but when you are exhausted you eventually learn to go to sleep when the sun is still out.

buttons: swan wow, I'm not such a regular sleeper

Swan: buttons - I got that way when I was in the Marine Corps and it just stayed with me.

buttons: swan right

Swan: buttons - my husband asked our son once if I still turned into a pumpkin at 10pm, he then said that he wished the other woman would go to bed at 10pm and give him some quiet time to himself. Apparently she stays up until he is ready to go to bed (he has always been a night owl) and expects him to entertain her until they go to bed, my son said his dad told him that many nights he goes to bed and just lays there so he doesn't have to hear her yammering.

buttons: I am going to head off ladies. Hugs and prayers. Take care

Swan: buttons - night

buttons: swan hehehe

Kmkrn: ALL - Good night and I hope you all have a great and safe week. Prayers for all affected by the weather everywhere (floods, wildfires, etc.).

Swan: I am going to sign off too, need to finish dinner for the family, it is my night to cook. Have a great week KmKrn

buttons: swan yes, it sounds like he might have done that. I would love to stay up with H however really I need to be asleep by the time he gets home or very soon after
