OH NO!!! I am so sorry, that stinks!!!! Sending you lots of

Whoa. I know you're flustered when you forget to use your green font...

I'm sorry you are having a bad week...I hope things get better soon.

April is cancelled once again DD is insistent that she wants a party with her friends (and lots of presents, lol). I wasn't thrilled with the rates anyway, but sad I won't get to meet Candace and her crew.

So it looks like Feb is our last trip for a bit. Not sure when will renew the passes so putting away the Disney Visa for a while.....so sad

I personally came to the conclusion as much as I love them, it's a little more responsibility than I can handle right now.... I've firmly become a FELINE person, they are warm and cuddly too, they are a bit more independent as you can go away for a weekend and they'd be fine with food and their litter box, boarding is half the cost of a dog! I don't have to walk them, but still have the joy of pet ownership lots to think about, one things for sure -- pets bring something special to our lives! If its right for you and you family, you will know Enjoy if you do decide to adopt a new furbaby!
Marie Thanks for your vote....I know that is the other thing stopping me. Upsetting our two felines with a dog would be a big deal. Our older cat is 10 and she is already hassled enough with the younger male. He torments her pretty regularly.

DH has kid duty today though! I took off the whole Christmas break, so it's all him today...

He just ran out to get some coffee and donuts and then I'm off to work....the kids are still sleeping and don't even know about their "good fortune" yet.
Candace: Sounds like the start of a beautiful day for a kiddo! Hope they had a good day!

Hope she's better today!!!
Jeanette: Thanks...I too feel like I would do most of the work with a dog if we got one. But I do love them, all animals actually. I just have to stop looking at the dog rescue's website that is near us. Thanks for asking about DD. It is nice to be home alone with her for once, she is growing up so fast. I keep sneaking glances at her profile and notice how she is turning into young woman.

Wookie: Awww I am so sorry to hear of that mix up. Please don't get too discouraged. I still think it is amazing that you are managing to do schooling on top of everything else. Hang in there.

Ah, good -- sounds like she's on the mend now... especially with mommy's TLC. LOL at the pic of Perry! All I could hear in my head when I saw that picture was, "If I fits, I sits." Would he be named after a certain blue platypus, by chance?

Okay, thought of something else... has anyone been to Charleston, SC? I need help, really.

OMG, Candace... he's not a kitty any more! He's a BIG kitty!

What shenanigans did the kiddos get up to with their daddy on snow day?

Ha! Yes, he has an odd obsession with water cases that are empty. If the plastic is still on he loves them even more! After that pic, he hunkered down and had a nap in there! He is weird!
And yes, he is named after Perry the Platypus!! Can you tell we like P&F??

I refuse to show Miss M the kitty pictures because I just knooooow what'll come next: "Mommy, I WANT one, please?!" ... and that will carry on for days and days.

You know, I was just reminded by the breakfast thread someone accidentally posted here. The Captain's Grille is a very nice spot for breakfast.

Perhaps we'll do that one morning....I'm sure we'll get sick of the lounge food everyday.
