I also know quite a bit about the Opportunity and Curiousity rovers. I would love to share/discuss my research if anyone is interested and it would be great to hear about other topics! I can't wait to hang out with Mickey and the gang!
Welcome

My dad is sailing with us, and you might find him interesting to talk with. He is/was an aeronautical engineer at Lockheed. He helped design the propulsion units for several of the Apollo missions. Not quite rovers, but I'm sure it could be some interesting conversation.

I know that seems crazy... My husband thinks I'm nuts (not saying I'm not... )! But I just wanted to say how awesome I think it is that you'd be willing to share your research with us. And even though I am not interested I'm glad you put it out there! I will pass this off to my husband though, he might like to hear what you have to say over a beer or something.
That would be my husband. He HANGS on every word of the rocket launches while I just wish it would be over so I could go back to what I was doing.

GOOD for Your mom! But I must say, Nancy - your list makes me feel . . . TIRED!

We got an offer on our house today

Well I keep thinking if I don't write it then it won't be so but alas I have concluded that's not going to work. I got news today that I will be under going emergency eye surgery on Saturday to reattach my retina and repair a retina tear also. After boo hooing about it all day I'm sad to say the Fosbinders will be canceling our trip. I begged and pleaded to no avail for postponement but dr said NO! Can I have a miracle please ... I so want to go.

We print on card stock, laminate in our home machine, and then tape or glue magnets to the back.

I am SO sorry to hear that You'll be really glad though, when your recovery is over and you can SEE! Come on the WBTA 2014.

Oh, did I forget to say? My bad. We won the bid on the HUD house. It needs lots of work, but it's virtually identical in floor plan to the house we wanted to build but couldn't afford, AND in a much better location. Having a contract on the old house is a huge weight off our shoulders.

I like "vent covers" from the HVAC department at lowes or HD. They are STRONG magnets.

Happy Day, all!

You're going to need a vacation after all that!

LindaBabe - CONGRATS! Both on the offer and putting in a bit - bet that's a huge weight off your mind!

sharan56 - Oh no! So sorry to hear this - best wishes for an easy surgery & quick recovery - eye issues are scarey stuff!

Getting all our ducks in a row - prescriptions refilled & printouts of important documents (cruise check-in docos. insurance policies, copies of passports) done.

Still to do: Finish up one of the FE gifts, make a couple of minor purchases and do the final whittle-down of clothes.

Still trying to decide if we're going to the MDR on the second semi-formal or duck out to Beach Blanket Buffet that evening. I guess it depends on our servers and/or tablemates.

Still to do

  • Get rid of the nasty cold I woke up with this morning - arrrgh!
  • Buy a few last odds and ends
  • Pack
  • Give my dear mom a refresher course on how to catsit our three furballs
  • Hope that the FE I ordered will arrive on time - otherwise I will have to hang up a completely undecorated Ikea one!
  • Work another three days
  • And that's it!!

I'm thinking of dressing formal here at the house on one of those nights. After all I bought a special dress for the occasion and I hate to waste it. Lol....my husband owns three boats so I could just sit at a table on the back of one and pretend I was cruising. Do you think he would be upset if I used a permanant marker to draw Mickey on the side and write Wonder under it. The Wonder would be if I was still alive if it did... Ha ha. Maybe I should use erasable markers instead.

All you DISers that watch the prices and you see another deal like this one please email me. I don't always get updates. By the way Shelby told me the Amazing Race came thru Epcot last week. Two of the girls stopped to ask her where the place was they were trying to find. She was so excited
My email is sharanfosbinder@gmail.com

Yay! Congrats! How exciting. Maybe I can live through you. I want to move and have for a few years but due to multiple circumstances it just isn't happening. DH seems to just want to build an addition to our current home. We really should go on "Love it or List it". It would take a ton to make me love it.
