It would be a real shame to break traditions. Traditions are what families are built on. To help you out I am willing to take your burden on, just send me your tickets and room reservations. You have paid for them right?

Does this work if you don't have Hulu or Nexflix? My blu-ray has those on it

Responded before reading through the thread...........NEVERMIND.

You also have to worry about the ever changing park hours. They might just change the opening to 8am.
Thanks guys for the advice, hopefully the plan will work out, we prob can get away with not dealing with the princesses since DD just did that last month but there's always a chance she might have a different idea on that haha

8 year olds. That's what I thought and that's why I never coached it. But, I guess I need to defer to someone who does this job for a living. Plus, that was the only reason we lost last year. I guess they are just starting them out earlier that way.

Didn't realize that about Mia Hamm, and she had a good career.

No way you cold race skids in our warehouse, no room there for much (and we have one of the districts bigger warehouses.) We call 'em skids, head office calls them pallets.
We called them skids as well. As for grades, mine do ok so I'm not worried about that.

I'm willing to suffer through those bad seats anytime. Ironically, I hurt my back while exercising to lose weight.

Thanks. It is better. I have a another round of steroids and muscle relaxer but tried to just rest it without going with the meds. Fortunately, I had some days off from the holidays, weekend, and sick days.

There can never be too many summer days now. When mine were in first grade, I didn't like all the days. Now that my oldest is 10, I can just kick them outside when I leave for work and ring the dinner bell for them to come home when it gets dark.

Then on Friday I met up with the president of Team Frozen Monkey. Randall. How does he get my attention while I'm stilling on Dumbo waiting for it to start? By yelling 'GO TEAM BARRY!' I didn't know whether to look in his direction or vomit. I was holding Christopher so vomiting was out of the question. After the ride we had a nice talk and hung out for a while...



All of Randall's sweet talking saying how he didn't really like Barry and how he wanted to switch sides to Team Tim got me off guard. He got me in a headlock...



Tossed me to the ground, and started to stomp on my back, legs, and ankles.



The only way I could get him to stop was to offer him a FP to ride Space Mountain with me and Juliana.

We also met up again during the Osbourne Lights on Saturday night.

(It was a pleasure meeting you and your wife Randall. Can't wait for January!)
Awesome meets Tim.

Thankfully, the day that it happened we just happened to be at MK and only had a short walk to BLT to get it handled. And we didn't miss out on a whole half a day of pictures!
You don't believe me when I tell you that I control the universe... but somehow all my little plans seem to come together.

Not saying I agree, but that is the thinking behind it. I coach 4 sports, both girls and boys and it has been a developing focus.
Well, I really don't need to teach mine to be any more aggressive as she had that. I had plenty of aggressive players, but I just taught them to play through the ball with their feet as opposed to pushing. I think it is too young, but I may just have to do it.

Agreed. I played defender (soccer) and didn't have to throw many elbows. I solid shoulder would deter most offensive players. Usually, players through elbows and push when they are out of position, tired, or can't catch up. I usually had more weight on me than other players, and while I knew my stamina limits, I could still enforce and sprint a short distance when needed.

Minimum 1 TB

I would guess you can probably find a 2 or 3 TB for about $100

Just tell the kids there will be no Christmas this year, because we are really Jewish.

Worked for me...

Do your children (still) do Santa? You may just be able to get a small artificial to conserve money and be able to have the tree when you return.

Agreed. I wouldn't go with less than 1TB.

External Drives have 2 flavors. USB (You have to physically plug them into a USB drive on your comptuer every time you use them) and NAS (Network Attached Storage which connects via a LAN cable to your router.)

I like the NAS version because you don't have to move it around (HD's are susceptable to banging) and it can share files with multiple devices at the same time.

I am watching this one to see if it goes on sale during Black Friday / Cyber Monday. If not, I'll just purchase it outright as it is still a good deal.
