Tyler is going to be sooooo excited when he gets his birthday present this year! His birthday is 5/29, which is a Wednesday, so I'm going to surprise him by letting him miss school Thursday and Friday (there's only 1 week of school left after that, so he won't be missing anything substantive), we'll leave early Thursday morning and head to Cedar Point where we're booked at their indoor water park for 2 nights! We'll get to use the water park any time Thurs, Fri and Sat, and we already have our Cedar Point season passes (got those in October), so we can come and go whenever we want. He will finally get to experience a weekday/school day when the park isn't so busy. I CAN'T WAIT!!!

And now.....off to bed to read for a bit. Only two more days left in this stressful work week. Then it will be one week and 2 days without Jan so far, and at least 3 more weeks to go. Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming...

Two root canals- owww! Hope that's not as bad as it sounds!


Deb- sounds like packing is going well. I have a hard time letting go of a lot of my things too, but I've been making an effort. Don't worry about the turtles- I have a big collection of piggies and they will follow me everywhere, and you don't want to know how many stuffed animals live at my house!

Holly- indoor water park sounds awesome! Tyler is going to love that.


It was a long day here. I had to undergo all kinds of tests to make sure I'm ok for surgery. The surgeon still isn't sure which method to use- he will have to see the easiest way to get it out once I'm under anesthesia. They marked my tummy for a colostomy bag just in case it's needed, but hopefully not. So I'm on track for surgery Tuesday morning. I am trying to find a hotel for Monday night because it would be easier to do all the colon prep and sleep close to the hospital since they will probably want me there at 5 am, but NYC hotels are expensive! I'll Priceline some more tomorrow! Off to bed now!

TGIF! But I do have enough work to work all weekend if I were able. I will be all by myself today, not one single other person in the office all day (other than our paychecks getting dropped off), so at least it will be quiet with no distractions, which will help me plow through as much as possible.

Tyler is going to flip out. When are you going to tell him? Does he have to wait for his birthday to find out? How will you keep it a secret from him? You're going to have a blast!!!

YES I think our packing is going well so far. We haven't hit the really hard rooms yet. They will be next. I'm glad to hear that you have a collection of piggies. You know how I feel about my turtles.

Keeping the prayers, pixie dust and positive thoughts going for your surgery on Tuesday. I hope you're able to get a hotel room for a decent price on Monday night. It will make it so much easier to stay in the City the night before. I'll be thinking of you all day on Tuesday. Just keep thinking of Mickey on Mickey's ship and dancing to the calypso music down the deck. That's what I do when I have to do any medical procedures. It helps.

Shell, one of the effects of the March 1st government cut backs is that disability checks will be postponed indefinitely. I'm not happy about that because I just got set up with all my medical and they deduct it from my check that I'm not getting. I don't know what's going to happen to my medical coverage now.

I hope they do something to settle this sooner rather than later.

So John got his first statement informing him of his first pension direct deposit amount. They deducted $2000 for healthcare insurance. John didn't elect to have healthcare coverage by them. They said they automatically enroll you in it if you don't sign a waiver. They said they mailed the form to our house in November. We never got it. So we spent the afternoon correcting the error. We'll get a check mailed to us in about a week from now. Meanwhile, we had to pay our mortgage and there wasn't a whole lot of money left after that deduction so we had to scramble to put together enough money to cover the mortgage payment. We will be eating pasta for the next week until we get that check and it clears our bank. Talk about a panic attack.

Now I find out that I won't be getting my disability check this month or next depending on how long Washington politics continue. This is the wrong time to mess with my money. I need it to get ready for my move. This may delay us. I hope not, but I'm not sure what is going to happen now.

He has to wait until his birthday because he doesn't handle anticipation well. His anxiety level goes through the roof and has a horrible time coping for about 2 weeks before whatever's going to happen. He will have enough anxiety with the big change of end of the school year approaching, so I can't add to that. I will tell him in the morning when he wakes up for school! The night before, his birthday, I will tell him he'll get his present from me the next day. Maybe I'll wrap up pictures of the resort and of the park so he at least has something to open.

Deb, I'm so sorry you're having all these money issues the government makes everything so complicated for no good reason! I hope everything works out in the next couple of weeks so you can get back on track.

Holly- that sounds like a great way to surprise Tyler!


Just another Friday here- kids have a half day at school and then I have to return Olivia's Cheerleading uniform (they are finally collecting them even though we finished the season in Nov) and pick up her "trophy." I just need to dignity the uniform from the bottom of her dresser! Otherwise, I'm finishing some work projects and trying not to stress. I found a hotel with Priceline- not as close as I would have wanted, but we can just take a taxi uptown. Oh, and I went to a fundraiser for the school last night and bought the coolest sweater for cruising! It's a white crochet "circle sweater" and exactly what I plan to wear while sitting out on our balcony in the evening. Those are the happy thoughts that will get me through the next week!

Hello Deb

Oh dear, what a awful news, and terrible ... same here Government cut backs disability too... terrible. Now my friend talked about BSL ACT by government I think I miss something there as not clarified what they talked about.

Today, what a lovely weather

I had a lovely times last weekend for my brithday and on Sunday I had high tea and champagne at my house and had 17 ladies plus my daughter with her two friends were waitress for me and it went very well and I was worned out next day!! I enjoyed it and had a good laugh.

This weekend, I am having quiet weekend..
