Is it wrong of me to have evil thoughts whenever I read the Facebook status updates from my cousin, who lives in Kissimmee, regarding going to Disney this weekend or last weekend or whenever?

Seems like they go about every weekend. Not that I wouldn't do the same, but still... just keep rubbing it in.

Quiet around these parts today. Everyone must be out training for the marathon weekend.

Today is my daughter, Adeline's 7th birthday. DW, both grandma's, and her little sister have taken her in to the city to empty the bank accounts at the American Girl store. Too bad I had to miss that part of the day...
Happy Birthday to define!

You should have read the message DW sent up after I posted about being in EPCOT last week.

I've been asking myself that a lot here lately - why did I settle in KY instead of moving to FL? Now, my life lessons to dd everyday include saying prayers, Dave Ramsey financial planning, and moving to Florida after graduation.

Or, you have your first official stalker. Way to go on the meet up.

Exactly. I'm thinking CJ can support several of us. We can take turns entering our septic waste into his storm drain.

Happy Birthday to your dd. DW tried to get me to stop in the American Girl doll store in Atlanta on the way to WDW for several years. The GPS somehow just couldn't find directions.

Looks like Team Sparrow may have more room on the couch. It is great that you guys are running, and I will cheer you on.

Happy Birthday Adeline! I hope you enjoy your new dolls & accessories as much as you enjoy eating Ramen noodles and expired hot dogs for the next month!

Looks like the Carnival Triumph decided it is ready to be on the move again...

At what point do you just give up and turn it to scrap?

Appears to have sustained damages to the horn in its stern. Sounds painful.

All in all not a bad take, plus I think my son will really enjoy The Battleship & the Mine, since that is all boy stuff there
Good job, thats an impressive haul.

DD says "That was rude. Please get out."
I approve
