Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Date Night, Pink Punk Cosmo and Mike the Trainer

Joining the girls over at Blue Monkey Butt for another installment of What the Hell Wednesday. Jump on over, read some funny stuff and link up...if you're playing.

Date Night happened. What the Hell? I know, it looked to be doomed, but it all worked out. We went to Friday's for Dinner and I had a Pink Punk Cosmo. You really need to try this one. It's a cosmo poured over cotton candy. It's yummy. I had two just to be sure. My ass thanks me and my Wii Fit trainer (Mike) wasn't impressed. Girls gotta live. We also ate...a lot. Thought for sure Mike was gonna toss me some fat burners that work, or at least suggest some, instead he made some comment about late night snacking...What the Hell? He's lucky he's not fired.

After dinner we went to Target and did a little shopping. Ended up getting Valentine's gifts for the kids. Yep. We were living it up. What the hell?

Some old school friends want to take a girl's trip to Nashville at the end of February. I REALLY want to go but Hubster thinks we should save any extra money since his job is going to end in March. Then yesterday he calls to say that he received a credit for some purchases he made at Christmas and had managed to come up with an extra $150. He's thinking about driving to the Lego Store in Raleigh (3.5 hours away) to pick up a Lego kit he really wants...What the Hell? Shouldn't THAT extra money be saved too? Just doesn't seem right to me.

Okay. Gotta run. Have a cute little boy staying with us today and have to get some small stuff up and out of the way so it doesn't make it into his little mouth. Have a great Wednesday.

  1. Using cross-laminated timber as the main ingredient in a building design clt has many benefits. Compared to steel or concrete CLT is reasonably easy to work with on site. Prefabricated sections arrive on a truck, are quickly craned into place, and are simply joined together with a skeleton crew. It has been said that if you see someone with a saw or a hammer on a CLT building site – it means something has gone wrong.

    Of course when it comes to timber building – there is always the question of fire-safety, but CLT is vastly different from stick-frame wood construction. Mass timber is significantly more difficult to ignite and once it catches fire it begins to char, causing it to burn at a slow predictable rate. Believe it or not, engineered timber laminated wood like this can outperform structural steel in a fire. In one test, a glulam beam was pitted against a steel beam in a fire. The steel failed after 30 minutes, while the timber remained straight and true, retaining 70% of its structural integrity.


Thanks for stopping by. Let me know you were here.
