Yes, lunch. Let's plan for mid next week. We head out Friday morning to Long Island for Evans baseball, but can do maybe Wednesday. Let me know if that works and where. I'll head to your area since my schedule is more flexible.

Philip had to return to work, but we somehow managed to find this place.

Nice job guys! OK, Philip is off the hook for not having a picture.

Good luck. Hope it goes well. Maybe she's afraid of dinosaurs.

It's amazing how fast you forget what it's like to hold a newborn.
Congratulations on the new niece! DS went to Dr. this week and is 5'4'' and 144 pounds. Doc says he'll be at least 6'2'' after he hits his growth spurt. Can't even remember when he was that small.

And the funny thing about the picture is, it looks alittle blurry, but that's just how I really look haha

Good morning!

I am super excited about the ~10% chance of being able to change our 7-night WDW summer vacation to a DCL 8-night cruise on April 26th (this year!) so I have to come share. How sad is that? (Being excited at a slim chance, I mean.)

My wife has never wanted to take a cruise before. With all the issues with Carnival lately, I thought the possibility of us taking our first cruise was flushed down the toilet (unless you were on the Carnival Triumph.) She was even more set in her ways to never cruise.

Then I found out I could possibly get a good deal on a cruise out of Galveston in three weeks. I emailed DW this morning about the possibility of taking advantage of the awesome deal even though we would have to take the kids out of school for a week to do it. I told her we could do the cruise instead of the WDW trip and we could save a bunch of money (that got her thinking.) It is the 8-night cruise that stops at Castaway Cay and a full day at WDW resort (with a park hopper ticket included!) I laid out the finer points and how Disney Cruise Lines was again rated the top cruise line by Conde Nast Traveler, etc. I at least have her looking at our family budget tonight to see if we could afford it and she sent an email to the kids' teachers to see if it would be feasible for the kids to miss that particular week (it is a few days after state testing, so I think it could be OK.)

I know my chances aren't that great, but I am excited I didn't get an immediate "NO!" from her. Baby steps.

I just wanted to share in my excitement - I know no one at work would 'get it'.

Thanks for clarifying. I always wondered where the Oblivious came from.

So an update on the home front here. Re-entry from vacation mode has sucked. We had a great time in Hawaii but the 5 hr time change has kicked us where it hurts. Last night I was finally able to get 5 hrs of sleep (normal for me is 6-7) after 3 and 4 hrs the 2 previous nights. DD(10) has had a rough transition with homework piled on and then not being able to fall asleep until after 11pm (normal is 8:30 - 9). Hopefully this weekend will correct our clocks.

As for Hawaii, it was once again awesome. I tried to log as much as possible on the Book of Face so that friends / family can reference... (I'm talking to you there Captain).

Well, back to trying to whittle down the inbox. (Even with cleaning the BBY each night of >200 messages / day)

Prayers for those in need; Praise for those deserving; Bacon for all!

That is so awesome for them! I know DW looked at me with a yearning face after holding a newborn a few weeks ago. Then I had to remind her that it would be really hard for us to have another, considering she had a partial hysterectomy in January - but I would be willing to try.

Glad you had a good trip.

Nice meet up. Looks like you are going to take the non Disney meet up record.

Congats to you Brother and SIL. And no, I am not interested in holding a newborn for a number of years.

Thanks everyone !!!

Very low key, just bumming around at home today, I did get it off, not that I requested, but worked that way, work tomorrow night though, no "party weekend". DW wanted to plan a trip to Gettysburg for me to do some ghostwalks, but I shot it down, need all the $$ we can for Disney. Pizza and wings tonight, with a good movie on with the girls will do nicely.

I'm still worried about how my kids will deal with the jetlag. It's always brutal coming back east.
