Hi everyone I'm home

My Nanny loved her party, she cried when she came in to a room full of people, about 30. She didn't know that she was having a party and it was so sweet. She kept saying how wonderful everything was and that she didn't know she had so many friends (they keep dying ) It only lasted a few hours which was probably enough for all the old fogies as my girls call them

I'm so glad to be home though, Mum and Ken (her partner) just argue all the time and I hate it something was even said to me this morning and I so nearly bit back but I refrained myself!!! Thing is Mum thinks it's great having us and I don't think she realises we all hate the tension in the house Oh well we only go once or twice a year

It's a Martin Scorcese suspense movie starring Leonardo Dicaprio. Very good!

I may go through some shakes, but I hope I'll manage with a week off.
It's not noon yet and I see your light on. Have a great time!!!

Fun boy stuff. Were they loud?

Expensive stinks, but when it really helps a person, then, if you have the money, it's well worth it!

We had a nice dinner last night. Not one of my choices to go to, but it was for my MIL so I couldn't complain.

We went back to Best Buy to exchange the Dance Revolution. I was so excited to get the new one home, and it did the same exact thing. Something must be up with the game itself. It just starts freaking out on the menus. We have no other problems with other games, so this is isolated. I'm bummed because I was really ready to shaky my booty!

It really is. Jim and I went in 1999 and loved it. I am sure it is going to be a much different trip with kids though

I want to take Jimmy to see this but I don't think he is quite ready to sit through it yet! Glad you all had fun!

That stinks

+++++++++++++++++

Good morning. I have been so lax with the laundry lately...just doing what absolutely needed to be done, that I have 10 loads that I need to get to today and that's not including sheets and comforters I will be spending the entire day doing this

Jim is going to do the grocery shopping so that I can stay here to do the laundry.

Other than that, not much planned for the day. Jimmy decided today that he just wants to watch TV and play with his toys, which is fine with me. He needs to rest a bit after yesterday.

Hope you all have a great day

Sorry- When I posted on FB, what I meant was that it was the last competition for Baylie's solo. The teams still compete next weekend. We're gone Fri-Sun, then it's the single digit dance that I'll be doing!

We are getting rain Monday and all day Tuesday. It's going to melt all this carp, which is then going to probably cause flooding

Fantastic and WTG Judy can she come and do mine?


Just spoke with Em who spent last week in Florida, they originally were just going for the sun and swimming but it was chilly so they spent 2 days at Sea World and 4 at WDW. She then says they're going back in October and want to stay onsite, so which weeks in October are quiet? What holidays do you have around then? Also because the boys HAVE to be in bed by 7pm they want either a 1 bed or 2 rooms but Joe wants to stay at the GF

Happy birthday to your grandmother. We had a big party for my gram when she turned 91. She was happy and surprised. My aunt came up from Florida for it.

The major holiday in October is Columbus Day. It is a school holiday in a lot of places. This year it is Monday October 11th. I went that weekend in 08 and didn't find the crowds to be excessive. It did get busier over the weekend but I don't think we waited over a 1/2 hour for anything other than TSM. The weather can still be quite warm. It is a great time to visit and see all of the Halloween decorations and then there is also Food and Wine in EPCOT. I am hoping for a quick trip myself depending on the cost to repair my roof from all of the snow we have had.

Jo in October is Colunbus Day weekend which is Monday October 11th so that weekend would be busy and then avoid the very end due to Halloween !! I hear the first week in November is VERY good too!!!

Jo I would tell Em to avoid the week of Columbus day. Excapt for halloween Night, I hear the crowds are pretty good in October. I'm guessing if they want the kids in bed by 7:00 they won't be doing the Halloween Party or anything like that

Down to 7 loads of laundry left

Hi there!

Just popping in so I can keep up.

CEL BEL is having car trouble-again.
I hope it didnít cost you that much.

MO is waiting for more snow.
So are we. Itís been a beautiful mix of rain, slush, snow and ice in the last 20 hrs. YUK!

ROSIE is working on her TR. Pics of Kyleís B-day, post #3681. Her laptop is working again. She says that her friendís baby, Bree is out of the hospital and on antibiotics.

Kyleís birthday looked like loads of fun. Love the cake!
I am so happy for the family of Bree. Iíll keep sending prayers.

LORI still has a head cold. There is a cute picture of Lindsey at post #3680.

Linds is too cute!
Shutter Island is about 2 US Marshals attempt to figure out what happened to an inmate/patient in an institution for the criminally insane.

KAT is trying to get their apartment back together after the exterminator got done. They will have to do it again it 2 weeks. They have a neighbor who works for the housing authority above them. She is going to have the whole building investigated.
Karma! Iím just hoping that the bedbugs stay away this time.

DAWN and family are dealing with the dance competitions. She will be leaving March 10th for WDW. They are staying at POR for 5 nights then moving to BLT!
It sounds like a wonderful trip is in store. Youíll probably need it.

CE was doing the pre-trip scramble. She had to thwart a migraine. And then she was off to their vacation in the snow.

FLO said that the week went well with the kids. Fun Junction was $$$ junction but the kids had a great time. She and Rob like Shutter Island. They had an awesome dinner too. They went out again to celebrate the MILís B-day last night. She didnít get to Ďget downí with the Wii because the dance game she bought wouldnít work.

Bummer about the Wii! Glad you had a great week!

JANET has had cubs and tigers at her house.

Sounds like it went OK. Fun Junction sounds kinda like Dave and Busterís. Do you have one of those around there Janet?

T popped in. She said something about G-Force.
Is that the guinea pig movie? We saw it. It was cute but not exceptional. But hey, Iím 4* years old. Howís the cookies?????

MrsKS and Bill got a refund check for some of his schooling that he got to opt out of because he is so smart. They got a fancy touch screen remote for the TV so that Bill can access the TV easier. They also got a new desk. Bill is boosting exposure for the organization that he manages. AndÖÖThey are going to WDW in May to celebrate his gradutation - 3.84 GPA!!!!!
Windfalls of $$$$ are so nice. I am so happy for Bill! He is definitely a testament to strength and perseverance. Congrats to you and him!!!

HEDY went to see Lion King with her nephews and mom. The souvenirs stand reminded her of AK.
Too funny!

JO said her nanna had a wonderful B-day party. 30 people were there. She was very surprised! Jo says that staying with her mom and her momís partner was not fun. Once or twice a year is enough.
That is so special for your nanny! Iím glad she had a good time. Too bad about your living arrangements. Let Em know that the IP-DIPS will be around on the weekend of the 23rd! I agree with everyone else: Columbus day and Halloween are the 2 times to avoid.


All is well here in Hoosierville!

Gotta get ready for work!
