I hung up.

Yeah, something doesn't sound right about that

Sadly, this is true

It has been a crazy start to the new year, DW got into a car accident, other driver was in the wrong lane they hit head on. Thankfully they we not going to fast and kiddos were not in the van. DW is okay, but has some whip lash and here legs are really sore. She started some therapy and we are hoping that helps. All things considered we are pretty lucky. Someone was definitely looking over her that day. We are still fighting with the insurance company over value of the van. We were also renegotiating our mortgage and had to go vehicle shopping all at the same time.
A new month has arrived and things are looking better already.
Thanks for listening guys, good to get it all off my chest.
Wow, another case where it could have been a lot worse. Hope DW gets better soon, and some good things come your way.

Wow... I got a raise. I didn't think that was possible given my freelance status. It's a modest increase that equates to about $2k-$3k per year, depending on how much I work. But there is the potential that my other job, which pays me based on the rate I get from this job, might therefore increase too. If so, then it's more like another $10k per year. Either way... today is a good day.
Awesome!!

Thanks...Poly was a once-in-a-lifetime thing I think, could never swing that kind of scratch now. If we could, we'd do it in a second. Funny thing is, POP fills all our needs well, and it's the only resort the girls really know.I hope a free dining offer comes up, and we can jump on the chance to try POR

Thinking back, I don't know if we even did any ADRs or did any table service back then. I remember walking up to Liberty Tree and getting a next-day seating, which I had to cancel when I got ill.

Upon further review, we did one ADR for Crystal Palace on DW's bday...but this was 7 years ago, might have been easier to book back then

Solo trip? Probably about as likely as a solo trip for me.

POLY is better than no trip (no that I have stayed there) but it isn't high on my wish list. Didn't care for the food at Ohana and the theme doesn't do much for me. Wouldn't mind checking out the luau once. There are others I would want to stay at first.

The family is away so I prefer early mornings for getting work done. Nobody else in the office for another 2 hours so I can turn up the internet radio.

Nobody produces illegal bourbon. Bourbon has to be aged for 2 years in new oak barrels and nobody that produces their own liquor will go to that trouble.

Isn't that awesome! That means I have a good excuse for getting such a bad time for the race. It also means I don't have pancreatic cancer which crossed my mind. Two weeks of some heavy duty antibiotics and a crap load of pepto and I should be good to go. Hooray for bacteria!!
Ummmm...Congrtulations?

Glad it wasn't anything serious and prayers for a quick recovery.

Good Morning Dads! It looks like we are finally going to get some snow this year. Depending on who you listen to they are calling for anywhere from 12-30" tomorrow and into Saturday. Our luck had to run out sometime. The only bad thing is that it will most likely cancel our Saturday sports schedules. It's so hard to find dates to make things up with our limited space.

We have already planned the family game time by the fire with hot cocoa and snacks. Of course mom and dad's cocoa will have a little more bite to it.

Glad DW was not seriously injured. Vans are always tough with the insurance company due to the resale values. We were in an accident with a van a long time ago and they argued for several weeks that the resale value was not the same as the amount we owed. Eventually they backed down and paid what we believed to be fair. Good luck with getting it settled.

Congrats on the raise! Every little but helps. Good luck getting the raise on the other job.

My annual review is due next week and would expect around 3-5% increase similar to the last few years. As usual, it will be May by the time we get to it. At least it's retroactive.
