Morning....thanks guys, I needed a good rant there. It's going to be a tough week. Despite being in the Christmas season, this week is schedualed bare-bones for some reason on nights. My shift leader isn't impressed with that. Saturday will feel like a godsend, off for the weekend

Lots of running around to do as well, Amelia goes to the dentist later this morning, then off to work. Tomorrow I have my bronchosopy, so I'll end up taking the day off to recover from it.

We had a tease of snow on Friday, but it was gone by the next day.

Warm water or no… “skinny-scuba” just doesn’t sound like a good idea.

Nothing I do is "skinny"

Is there a pill for this condition or do I just keep up the cycle of going to Disney

What contract where and how many points?

Well good luck I know how hard it can be to start over at a new job. Hope it turns in to all you expected it to be.

Haha you had the same idea I did, but I guess since I would do prob a BWV or GCV direct once this ones paid off, I will bow out of that bidding

Good Morning Darcy.

And to all the other Dads as well. Hope everyone has a good Tuesday. I get to take tomorrow off, FIL is having his hip replaced and the wife is driving her parents into the hospital and staying with MIL. The good part is DD has a Christmas chorus show that I will be able to go to. You know. Deck the halls and all.

How many points is the smaller one and what resort? Maybe I'll kidnap Stitch from your mailbox and hold him for ransom?

Well I'm glad your finding time in between lessons to check in here!

Is it a whole new computer system or just how they do things? I know when I started here I had to learn GP Dynamics. Not really hard to use, but a big change from what I was using.

Hang in there and feel free to vent if needed.

I used to be the principal at a local college and would get called all the time but unfortunately there was no overtime. The worse time was during the superbowl just as Carolina started a late charge to make it interesting.

Look at it this way, you are not working strictly as an accountant anymore. That has to be good.

I think GF will be slow to sell out. The main target market seems to be young families and GF doesn't seem to jive with that.

You have had too much time to think this out. But, if you option a screen play, send me a royalty. Think DiCaprio will play me?
Hadn't heard that fortunately i'm closing on our resale SSR points this week.

DiCaprio can be an iffy choice. You might be hoping for Catch me if You can DiCarpio and wind up with Gilbert Grape DiCaprio

So do you believe him?

Sorry about the beverly day. Can you talk with the person that took the key? It may just be an oversight on their part and it's probably worth bringing it up, especially if its' gonna bother you.

I hope you get grandfathered in.

I was planning on buying multiple smaller resale contracts too. Wanted to have 60-100 point contracts at a couple resorts. This screws our plans too.

Good morning gentlemen. I was up playing Civ V a little too late last night.

Hope you guys having work issues have smooth sailing the rest of the week. I'd love to be jealous at CJ but the golf courses are still open. I'm trying to get out this weekend and break my personal record. DW isn't quite as receptive to the idea.

Gymnastics went well last night. DD had a blast. Only issue was she liked bouncing on the trampoline when the teacher was talking. DS got bored about half way through. I've got a feeling he won't be doing a second session.

Wife wasn't responsive to my golf habit either until I started taking the kids with me. It makes the round last a LOT longer, but we all have fun. She gets some time off and I get two kids to find my ball in the woods all afternoon. DS is getting pretty good, may need to stop betting him soon.

Good luck with Gymnastics. Neither of my kids liked it much. DS went once or twice and decided it was for girls, even if the men do it in the olympics.
