A new month has arrived and things are looking better already.
Thanks for listening guys, good to get it all off my chest.
I'm really glad she is ok and that it was not worse. Prayers for a speedy recovery!!!

Wow... I got a raise. I didn't think that was possible given my freelance status. It's a modest increase that equates to about $2k-$3k per year, depending on how much I work. But there is the potential that my other job, which pays me based on the rate I get from this job, might therefore increase too. If so, then it's more like another $10k per year. Either way... today is a good day.
Congrats!

Isn't that awesome! That means I have a good excuse for getting such a bad time for the race. It also means I don't have pancreatic cancer which crossed my mind. Two weeks of some heavy duty antibiotics and a crap load of pepto and I should be good to go. Hooray for bacteria!!
Good to hear you know what's been causing you problems and that there is a somewhat easy treatment. Much better than the alternatives.

It's the best way to do it (except for ADR's)

I believe our day is 8:00 am until 6:00 pm. So we would leave Orlando and head back to Port Canaveral around 3:00 just to ensure we have time to get back, and return the rental car.

Oh no... Prayers for DW Nick.

Good luck with the insurance company. The important thing really is that everyone is all right. Looks like you have an angel looking out for you.

Well, you can trade the Flyers for the Leafs. You will at least feel comfortable rooting for that type of team

For anyone who has never had a burrito (or whatever else) queso style, you do not know what you are missing. I used the last of the queso dip from Superbowl food leftovers and poured it over a homemade burrito - beef, cheese, tomatoes. To make it even better, add bacon. As I type this, I can actually hear my arteries closing up a little tighter. So worth it.

Thanks everyone for the kind words and prayers. It could have been a lot worse . In the last week we bought a new van, closed on the new mortgage and still fighting with the insurance company. We are about 2000 apart on the value of the vehicle. Hopefully this gets settled soon.

Like I said feb is turning out to be a good month so far.
In other news the restaurant is still doing well, we are kinda coming into our slower period. 2-3 weeks and then we are back at it. As some of you may know DW is a TA, so we have approached a local company to take us both on and we are starting to sell travel together. I go and write my test soon and will be starting on the next few weeks. Of course we will focus our attention to Disney products but will be open to all destinations. The office was hoping that we could build some more Disney business for them.
This should keep us busy!! If we were not busy enough with a restaurant and two young kids.
Another adventure, hopefully it all works out.
Wish us luck....and maybe let me know how to add a few more hours to a day...24 is just not enough!

Glad to hear it is not serious, hope she recovers soon. I hate dealing with the other guys insurance; i fought for nearly year when soemone hit my wife. Luckly my insurance picked up most of the tab until his paid up.

From the AP:

Kentucky produces 95 percent of the world's bourbon supply, according to the Kentucky Distillers' Association. There are 4.9 million bourbon barrels aging in Kentucky, which outnumbers the state's population.

We have our priorities.
