Not a pretty picture.

Similar mess…
More food…
Less square footage…
An added roomy to help double the potential ciaos…
And a whole building of similar such spaces.


That does not bode well.

Wow. I thought ours was a lot. We've been living on a super tight budget for years anyway so unfortunately there's no more fat to trim. Ours will be almost entirely from fundraising and draining the savings account. Some stocks might get sold ahead of schedule as well.
It's always easiest to just ask for forgiveness. If you run early in the morning and the have an en-suite master bath, that'd be the one I'd use.

She would sleep for 5 minutes and then wake up in a "frantic" like state. I don't know if it was night terrors or what. She seemed as if she was coherent during the night, but there was no consoling her.

Needless to say, I feel like a zombie today and I have to frickin' work!

We were told by doctor never to wake him as it can be dangerous somehow. After about an hour and a half he fell back to sleep and then woke up normally about 20 minutes later. Can you say "REDRUM"? It was really creepy.
Wow those are both really freaky. We only have to deal with DS's sleep walking. Most of the times it's not urgent, but we did have one situation where he walked into our room proclaiming "I have to pee"before heading into our closet. I woke him up that time.

Welcome welcome. So is Brett your name? Love the list but I tweaked one line for you. Of course if your other 2 were Dole Whips and Ohana shrimp, you could probably go back to the way it was.

DD went with my mom this weekend and I know what you mean. I love mom to death, but she REALLY needs to remember they are not 3 any more. The bigger issue this time was they went to make a Christmas list. My mom bought her 3 items on the list while they were out and let her have them. REALLY? Whats the point of making a list? I think we have a 3 day boot camp training every time they come back from there. Of course the wife tells me for the 3 days that it is my fault.
Yeah. When the kids go to DMIL they come back deaf. Last time they were at my parents DS watched a lot of Tom & Jerry so there was some hitting issues.

Depending on what the shows are, you could spent $100 on an AppleTV and then about $20/month on a combination of Hulu+ and Netflix streaming and you can cover much of what's carried on most cable packages.

My problem with moving to a setup like that is my college basketball addiction.

Live sports seems to be the biggest problem with dropping cable for most people. The current generation appletv can be bought from apple for $85. I just ordered one for DW so that she can mirror her iPad on TV.

I pulled my lionel out as part of our christmas decorating, as I played with it it made me wonder if there is an O or G gauge monorail that functions the same way. I've been looking around at the shuco and e-r monorails but neither of them are in production currently.

LOL...yes.
Brett C. Williams...now you can Google me...but hopefully not in a creepy way

I think 1 and 2 may be Le Cellier's Strip Steak and Major Domo's Favorite Pie
that I had at Cinderella’s Royal Table...although we just had O'hana's dinner on our last trip and it was AWESOME!!!

We ate there the first day and they rolled me out and onto the monorail!
