we get our share of blimps floating about here for various sporting events. When they have the US Open nearby it's rather creepy seeing it hover overhead for a week.

FSU, now waiting for the big one next monday

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

hey homie coastermom, long time, no see.

glad you stopped in to share how 2013 has started for you!



good luck in college and hope you do fine in it.


are you going for a teaching degree?
i think you were working as a teacher aide at one point.
if i'm wrong, correct me on that.


when you have finished your homework in the evening, stop on by again.
we always miss homies when they are not around!

it's been very quiet here lately...are we in time-out?

not any specific but i'm in sticker shock as to pricing out the disney hotels for early June. Rack for values was over $155 a night rack, with best rate with new promo $120...moderates well over $200 a night! Might be sticker shock since i haven't actually booked disney via CRO for a few years but the next time somebody complains about the prices of Universal onsite hotels they certainly need to take those figures for non-deluxe properties into comparision imo.

ok off soapbox, have a great weekend all...i'm off to get a tooth that broke off yanked.

Just popping in to say Happy New Year everyone! Haven't been on as much as I would like lately - just busy with life.

Yesterday we were out at Tanner and Zephyr's breeder's place and went for a spin on the Sled which was an absolute blast.

hope they fix that broken tooth for free.
you already have the pain of the tooth removal and fixing youse up, you don't
need the double whammy and have the pain hit your check book also.


yea, i looked at the motherland rates for june and the end of sept/first part of october for the portion of my vacation prior to the darkside.
i'm sure rooms will fill up even at the escalated prices.

for october, i already have 10 nights at rph to start once i check out of the motherland.



i hate paying $155 a night for a value when i can get the rph at $144. kwim?

crossing my fingers that i get a pin this year.
if that happens, everything will fall into place.


keisha, can you book dvc for june?
or have you already allocated those points for another trip?
