Borrowed from the CSR thread...
We had this at both the WL and BLT a couple weeks ago. Works pretty well, you just hold your card up to it and the door clicks to open.

Thankfully this time of year you can just put everything in coolers and put them out on the deck.

Had a scare with DS over the weekend. Everything seems to be fine now, but saturday morning he woke with what appeared to be bug bites all over his tummy and his legs. We treated as such with some anti-itch cream, and went to work cleaning his bedding, mattress, and room to try and find whatever got at him during his sleep.

The next morning, he was covered from head to toe in the same bite-like marks, and his hands, feet, and face were all swollen. Pediatrician was not open, so we took him to the ER, concerned about the possibility that the swelling could spread.

At the ER, we're told it's most likely an allergic reaction to Augmentin, the antibiotic he was on for an ear infection. There's no way to be sure that this is the cause, but we've stopped giving it to him and the reaction seems to be lessening in severity over the last couple of days.

It's just so frustrating to not be able to do more to help him deal with the pain and discomfort he is going through. Hopefully he is feeling better sooner rather than later.


In other news, work is good, and DW and DD are doing okay. Halloween approaches, and I've yet to get the decorations out. Maybe this upcoming weekend??
Scary. Hopefully he's feeling better today.

In any case, I don't do this often, but if you guys could send prayers our way, it would be greatly appreciated.

DW and I went in for a check-up on Saturday and everything with the twins was normal, but Soon Ae's blood sugar level was pretty high. She went in again today for some more blood work. I just got off the phone with her and it wasn't any better. So tomorrow (Thursday), she has to go to a normal hospital (we've been going to a women's hospital for all of our check ups) and spend four days there. I don't know any more than that right now, I was only on the phone with her for a couple minutes.

Thanks in advance.

That's what I'm thinking too. DW had this. Stay on top of it and she'll be fine. Prayers to you.

Good morning everyone.

I don't know if anyone else follows George Takei on FaceBook but today he posted a good one.

Have you tried Terro ant killer? Takes a few days but works wonders.

Boardwalk had them back in August. Two observations:

1. The Mickey Head cover pops off very easily, exposing the circuitry underneath.
2. If you're holding two or more key cards, the reader gets confused. Often I'll have my card and at least one of the kids' cards in my lanyard pouch. It's nice not having to pull out one card to slide into a slot, but then I had to pull on card out to tap on the door. So I started carrying the kid's cards in my pocket, so when I got to the door, i just had to lean down a bit, let my lanyard pouch smack into the door and boom - unlocked.

Maybe they should put a card reading near the bottom of the door, by the floor. That way if you manage to crawl your way back to the room, you don't have to reach up to unlock it.

If you cooked it with cheese, he would never leave.

Still don't understand the need for a coolant system in Wisconsin.

Yeah, that really is frustrating. Hopefully they've got the right dianosis and he'll get feeling better quickly.

Sorry. That's a lot of work to have to do in just a few days. I hope the new position and the potential move pan out for you.

Prayers her way.

I hope it is nothing serious. Sounds like it may be gestational diabetes. DW had that with her first pregnancy. It wasn't anything serious, she just had to do some blood work, monitor her blood sugar during and after pregnancy and change her diet. I hope that's all it is!

Get it while you can. There's supposed to be a bacon shortage coming.
