He prescribed a drug that should counter it. After a while they will wean her off the medication. Hopeful that it works. We are both breathing a little easier for now.

Really tough when you kid is sick and you aren't there to do anything about it. She handled it like a trooper.
That's tough to handle when she's so far away. I'm glad she seems to be handling it well though. Hopefully she'll be fine soon!

NOT going to be a good week. Manager just got news he's been promoted, so he's gone, being replaced with a guy with a big rep for making people miserable. Long list of grievences with the union etc.

Got home to find out both kids caught lice again. Now I've got a long night of cleaning to do.

I am not a happy camper right now.
Wow. Rough day. I don't think I know anybody who has as screwed up of a management situation at work as you do.

The lice problem isn't much fun either...

Wait a minute. Exactly how is the spray gun considered cheating? As far as I'm concerned, that's the only way to go if you're doing outdoor painting.

CJ - Hope Pirate Princess feels better quick

Brent - Ugggg... lice sucks. Not easy on anyone at home. Hopefully you get through that quick.

David - You were in the exciting and magical world, why would you even think to return? I put it into perspective. When I am not at WDW I make the best of it at home.
- I crank up the Aerosmith tumes in the car while I am driving to work. That takes care of Test Track and RnRC
- I run into people I haven't seen for a while and say "It's a Small World"
- And I work with a bunch of Dumbo's

Holy Cow, I found 5 minutes to sit down and read the DIS.

Ryan - great videos, thanks for sharing! I see the Disco Yeti is still in full force.

CJ - Sorry to hear about Crash's headaches. Glad she's doing better.

Brent - I hear you on the "when it rains, it pours". It will all pass eventually.

And everyone else I missed - or or or


Well, break's over. Back on your heads.

I wouldn't advise closing your eyes while you drive to replicate Space Mountain.
I love taking the top of my Jeep and blaring the soarin music when I drive.

Ahhh the joys of travelling for work. You get to see exotic conference rooms from around the world. (that would be the least successful vinylmation series ever)

This time of year is great. The parks were not crowded at all last week. When we went to see the princesses we were the only people in line and got to spend 15 minutes or so with them un-interrupted with them playing and talking with our kids.

Most of the times we've been its been 6-9s this was the least crowded its ever been for us so it was a neat change. Between being religious about making rope drop and following a tour plan I think we still do about as much when it's crowded.

You'll be at Disney of course you'll have a blast.

I think they expect a 7 at MK on 10-10 which I don't understand for a wed but a 5 for HS on 10-9 which should be awesome , don't fully understand the ratings but we will have a blast

Agreed. September is fantastic. I still tell people about walking through the queue for Big Thunder Mountain and getting to the front, and having the CM's say, "Ah, just pick whatever car you want to ride in."

There seem to be a lot of things that impact the crowds. During the fall MNSSHP runs some nights during the weeks. On those days MK closes at 7 and so the crowd levels are typically lower before 4 pm when the hard ticket holders can get in. They were also only running Main Street Electrical Parade on certain nights. During the 5 days we were there, there was only one night when non-party ticket holders could see Wishes and MSEP. MK was slammed on that night comparatively. Extra Magic Hours can also impact a parks crowd levels.
