Welcome Kim!!!!!

How awesome to do back-to-back cruises. I'm doing the Wonder b2b cruises in August to get my 7-day DCL fix this summer.

Wow - another Scout family.

And definitely post when you can. (love the avatar pic)

This is going to be a great cruise. I cannot wait to be on the Magic again.

What pets do we have.......

We're cat people in this family so over the years we've had 3-4 cats at one time. Right now we have three. We buy purebred Maine Coon cats so we have two Maine Coon cats and a domestic short hair stray that showed up on our doorstep one day and adopted us.

The kids also each have a hamster.

Its my job to make sure the cats stay away from the hamsters.

I've seen the short haired cat eat an entire squirrel (tail and head and everything).

Welcome aboard Kim.
I really must get some time to sort out a list of who will be on the cruise, starting to lose track now, I don't want to be going thru 300 pages looking for names. Will try get time this week.

As for pets we have a cat (Thomas) and 2 Goldfish (Dory & Nemo)
Thomas has a page of pics on DS's website http://www.disneymad.co.nr/ its down the right click on My Cat

I have always been a cat person, don't really like dogs. My Brother has 4 Maine Coons. Don't think I have any pics of them.

Hello all & welcome kimlam1!

Okay, so it's been a rough few days...

DH had back surgery yesterday, they put an artificial disc in. He's doing well, just very sore. I'm glad he's home now & he'll hopefully be pain free!

DS has been sick since Monday night, with "flu like symptoms." He had also been complaining about his knee for about a week. My mom took him to the doctor for me while I was at the hospital with DH. The pediatrician is sending him for xrays & to an orthopedic dr. She thinks he may have osgood-schlatter disease. Well I had never heard of it before & the word "disease" completely freaked me out. Of course I looked it up as soon as I got home from the hospital. It's not nearly as bad as it sounds, thank god!

st.somewhere - sorry to hear your sick now too. I hope you're feeling better.

Stsomewhere.....get better soon. And let the family pamper you (like that's going to happen now that the spring sports season is starting ). But do let the family take care of you.

Soccermom.....yikes, back surgery. I know in the end that DH will feel so much better but that is not an easy recovery. When your back hurts, everything hurts. And its not like the pain comes and goes, it hurts all the time.

So sorry to hear about DS. Glad he went to the doc to get it checked out. DD had a really bad virus last October with her fever spiking to over 103. The doctors ended up giving her an IV and she bounced right back.

Glad the doc is telling you to take DS to the orthopedist. Hoping its just something short term like a growth spurt or maybe some fluid buildup.

Soccermom- I'm glad to hear your DH is feeling well. Remember to take it easy yourself.

Ski- My kids are not into sports-YET! DD can't wait to goin the dance team though. I have a few more years. They are into scouting, student council, art club, and science club.

They would rather have the free time after school to just hang out.

They do enjoy watching the Japense game shows like Ninja Warrior.

Wayne- take your time with the list, no hurry.


PS- I am feeling much better this afternoon. I have been on meds for 24 hours now. But, I am going to rest for another night.

kids activities...is there a smily that groans???

We have done it all...been there...done that probably got a lot more kit than a t-shirt

tumble tots...swimming lessons (not so much an activity as a necessity..but anyway...)rainbows (baby brownies) x1, beavers ( baby cubs) x1, Browniesx2, Cubsx2,Footballx1,Tennis x2 ,Gymnastics x 2,Ballet x1, Tap x1,Kindermusic X1,County Choir x1,school choir x2, church youth club x1,violin x 1,cello x1,flute x1,drums x1,electric guitar x1, trampolining x1, hockey x2 ,netball x2, scouts x2,pony club x2 ( yes folks...we even had a pony! But unlike the majority of disgarded hobbies, he is not in the cupboard under the stairs! ) Thankfully, as the girls have got older they have settled on a few activities. Now its just Scouts,Hockey, Netball,Trampolining,choir,youth club, drums and guitar! and they ski or board when they can! Youngest DD is working her way round the orchestra...just the brass section to go! well....you have to have a go eh! The music and netball are all school activities, the rest still involves chauffering them about....mostly by DH...the joys of shift work

More musical children here......both kids play the trumpet.

They were both playing the violin but decided they like the sound of the trumpet better.

DD loves to sing but decided that doing choir and band at the same time was too much.

We have 2 cats, sisters, and 1 dog. We used to have another dog, but we had to put him down in 2006, he was the baby of the bunch.

I love Maine Coon cats, my babysitter had two and they were the most friendly cats!! I think ours might be part, at least DH thinks so.

Now I need to find a trustworthy pet sitter!! DS moved a few months ago, and he lived here so he watched them. I really don't want to kennel them all, I would rather them be home.
