Bleh...working nights this week, came home early tonight, DW re-injured her shoulder/arm/chest area bad catching Audrey falling off the bed. Kid is fine, but DW aggrivated a previous injury and could barely use her arm. I came home to help her out. Got her in bed, now chilling out, watching RAW.Add this to her list of issues to see her doc about Thursday.

Got all 4 flights using SW points so $.00 for travel. Now to start planning. Where did I put those Disney Visa points?
Me! I'll be there, hopefully....

Yikes, hopefully it'll be saved, and that you didn't bugger anything up pushing the car

Good morning fellow dads, hope all is well, I have been active in getting back in the dating game and focusing on my daughter, shes been upset more lately so I haven't been on much lately. Hope I didn't miss much, sorry Norm about the car, hope it's nothing to serious.

Thanks guys. I feel like shooting it. Tax value is $2700. NADA has trade in values from $1300 to $2500 and retail (dealership) was $4K. So, depending on what's wrong and how much it costs ... I hope to have it fixed.

But think about all the exercise you got pushing the car! Hopefully it's a cheap repair.

"A couple of weeks?" CJ - you know that's still winter in Jersey, right? It's going to be cold. Like really cold. Please make sure you post pictures of you making a snow angel!

The Force is strong with this one.

Between this and canceling your spring trip, it hasn't been the best few days. I hope things turn around for you.

Yeah, not the best few days, but at least we made the decision to cancel. It really would have strained the budget. My fear is this is a valve or cylinder problem. Still, I'm hoping for the best.

I worked out that way. Plus SH will play Syracuse and Marquette (I think) while I am there so also part of the timing. Not worried about the cold as much as snow. It has been a few years since I drove on that stuff. May buy the rental insurance which I never do. I have cold weather gear and besides, after a few days, I will be back in sunny South Florida.

Sorry about the car, but good wheel time for DD. Best to learn at about 2 miles an hour.

As much as we like to live vicariously through your dating, family comes first.

You do realize that it will be very cold diving up there in February.

I guess technically, but they are New York teams. I know it is a new stadium and part of the deal with the NFL, but really, who chooses to play in NY in February?? It will be interesting to see who goes.

We thank god every day for what we have (good and bad)! Good luck with the profiles. It's a wonderful thing you are doing to bring a child into your family. I remember looking through when my old assistant (left employment after the adoption to be home with her new baby) was adopting. It's very emotional task.
