‘Morning all…

Got home last night to discover that the deadbolt on my front door no longer worked.
Frustrating… but they’re easy to replace not all that expensive and the retailer rekeyed the new one to match the rest of my locks for only $5. Not a repair that I was planning on, but other then time, it didn’t really set me back all that far.


So…
What’s up with y’all?

Hummmmm…
I’ll reserve judgment on these until I hear more details. I’ve got my doubts as to how well they’ll pull these off. Considering what was offered for parts I, II, and III…

Very disturbing, this. Poor work done, it was.

It’ll be on again and I’ll catch it then.
We don’t like to break out all the Christmas trappings until it’s at least December. Next week I’ll start the decorating and such. But then again, we’ll leave it all up into the first week of next year, so it all evens out.

For my DD, it breaks my heart and maybe her mom feels like DD is better off like it is (holding my opinion out) I don't know what her deal is, thank you, had to air that out for a min
Wow…
That’s… ummmm… yah, that’s not good.
People never cease to amaze me. I believe that your girl is certainly better off now, but explaining it to her will never be easy. Prayers to all concerned, and soldier on sir. It sound to me like you’re doing a mighty fine job under difficult circumstances.

These are the drivers that cause the real problems and where the police are needed. Not doing speed traps and slowing me down in the AM.

Still having a hard time with the age gaps of the first three movies - Padme, Annikan, and Kenobi. Then, when you add in the 4th with the really old Kenobi and Luke and Leia are twins? Maybe we won't notice that any of them aged 20 plus years.
I think the reboot will have to be with new actors.

From the articles, this trilogy is supposed to be a bette group of story lines than the other 6. I hope that's true. If not, all you'll hear is "Disney ruined it". Not really an open mind going in.
That is what I hear too. I just wish they would update the Heir to the Empire trilogy and go from there. Twenty years later and those are still the best Star Wars novels.

Can I go home? My XBOX and Skyrim are lonely.

Thanks for the vent, feel much better now, (not really) but you get the point.

Matt

Sorry about the rough morning Matt!

Hope it doesn't set the pace for the rest of your day.

Had Dinner club last night at my house (in-laws and sister in law switch every Wednesday for dinner).

We talked about our upcoming Spring Break getaway to Daytona Beach.

We're gonna do a one day getaway to MK on Tuesday of our week there and my in-laws decided to come with us. (at one time - they had said they were going to Sea World with my other SIL's family).

I tried to get a dinner ADR at BOG for 7 of us - no dice!

But I was able to snag one at 'Ohana!

So, it will be a first for my in-laws as they've never been to any place besides MK and EPCOT. I think they'll be amazed by the Poly.

Lined up my sons babysitter for the 9th, have tickets to a gift auction in the afternoon, last year they had Dis tics but instead I won 4 season beach badges for a private beach (Probably will not put in for the beach this year, who knows if it will even be open next year)

But anyway I have to figure out if I want to take the day off (it's a Sun it would be no pay) or see if I can do a 8-12 (at time+ half)

You appear to be having a bad life right now.
More XBOX would be good.
More Disney would be better.


I desperately need a major dose of that second one.

`Ohana as a back-up plan.

We have a lot of this kind of driving in NJ, you did good you held back unlike here in NJ, I guess that's why NJ is a road rage state

Don't feel bad. I broke my glasses yesterday morning, didn't have a spare, and had already used my 1-pair-allowance from my vision insurance for the year. So that was $300 I wasn't planning on spending. Sigh.

As unexpected expenses go, that one certainly beats my 2 pair.
The lock issue was little more then an inconvenience.

As for glasses… I’m ridiculously hard on mine and damage and loose them regularly. The good thing is that I only need reading glasses, so they’re inexpensive to replace.

My family knows this fact and usually I end up getting two or three sets in my stocking each Christmas. Far and away one of the most useful things I receive gift wise.
