I like the DVC Radio and Sorcerer Radio channels. There is on channel, "Listen to the Magic", that has the Halloween and Christmas music. I am a VIP as I kept getting kicked out when the channels filled up and it was really frustrating. Has not happened since joining the VIP program.

I can gauge the local economy somewhat by the "abandoned animal index". If they are just puppies, kittens, or strays the economy is its usual dismal self for eastern KY. When we start getting well fed and groomed pets the economy is getting pretty bad. We had a new fluffy black cat dropped off today. Just because we run a farm doesn't mean we want your pets. Coyotes will probably get this one before the week is out.

Getting ready to go to bed. Haven't started packing for the trip, but I saw DS's ear muffs and figured I'd toss them into the backpack I'll be carrying in the parks while I knew where they are instead of scrambling around looking for them later. Next thing I know I'm tossing in the ponchos, Dramamine, extra contacts, sunscreen, and Advil. Already got my park bag ready with the exception of bottles, baby food and snacks.

I think we might use a second park bag this year, just to leave in the stroller with some extra clothes and maybe an extra bottle or 2 so I don't have to pack quite as much around the parks all day.

Just 10 work days left...

Evening.....

sort of one of those days....once again Amelia forgot to bring home her homework, DW was not impressed, this is happening alot lately. Also, she went behind our backs, brought a toy to school, one she just got, and it was broken. She then lied saying I gave her permission to bring it Youngest jumped on DW's back while she was bent over picking something up, ended up pulling something, so she's in a lot of pain. All this, while I'm at work.

Then DW gets a call from her mom, she and her step-dad were broadsided by a deer tonight. Yep, they didn't hit the deer, the deer junped into the side of the car. Thank goodness they had slowed down just before it hit. Both are fine, a little shaken, driver's side banged up pretty good.

On the plus side though, Amelia was awarded her first four achievement badges from Brownies! Good on her...now just needs to focus on schoolwork.

Okay. Sorry and I hope DW gets better. How many points was the deer? (Glad they're okay but that's an important question).

Have a great trip

Hi Ryan, you remember Princess in Oz from the LAST thread? She lives in Melbourne.

They couldn't find it, so it's still out there somewhere. It's stalking your children. It's making obscene calls to your phone. It must be stopped!!

One of our family traditions is to watch the Christmas specials on TV. One of our favorites is The Muppet's Family Christmas. It no longer show up much on TV, so my DD1 bought a DVD a few years ago, but unfortunately it was a very poor recording. The other day she was surfing the web and found it on You Tube and I would like to share it with you. If you can get on a large screen for you family to watch, you won't be disappointed.

Got to do Disney this year with NO backpack for first time since 2000. It was amazingly wonderful.

Misbehaving, back, and deer in one day. Time to stay inside and hide from the rest of the world.
