    Budget talk right now. DW says I have allocated too much $ for vacations. So, it really is a wait and see right now.

    Mark did a few posts back.

    Just checking in. I'd hate to miss a thread entirely! :rotfl2:
    Not much has changed here. We are hoping to take some kind of vacation before Spring but it won't be Disney. At the top of the list is Yuma/El Centro to visit my DW's best friend and to see our son perform with the Blues at the 2013 El Centro Airshow. 2nd on the list right now is Pensacola, again to see our son. Third is probably the Myrtle Beach area, possibly with our daughter and 2 grandkids. This all depends on how my DW feels, which isn't great. She sees a new neurologist this week and we're hoping that sheds some light on some things.
    Other than that, I'm just trying to hang in.
    Hope everyone else is well and enjoying Winter!

    Noticed. Was trying to catchup on the thread and in my rush before meetings, didn't check.

    With regards to the $ for vacation, I posted the amount we try to save annually. I should add that we try to take at least two vacations a year. One more local and then one somewhere else. We have done Disney, DC, Niagra Falls, NH, VT and looking for a quick somewhere to go this year on Feb. Vaca. Not sure we have agreed on a location yet.

    Good to hear from you, Mike. Continued prayers for your DW.

    Last year, we did the HHI DVC spring break, summer trip - Reds, Indy, RFC, & Mammoth Cave, and BLT in October. This year, we have the BWI booked for Spring Break and the Dream bookended by a couple nights at WDW at BLT. I would like to do another baseball game this summer and a trip down to Opry Mills Mall in February - a fun day. DW says that I am spending too much vacation $. Budget talks continue.

    She was impressed with Paul's time this year. Her goal is to take him down next year. Barry and Tim? Don't think so. She is thinking about walking on to SH's Cross Country Team next year. She will get her butt kicked but will be in super shape.

    Nice pic and good meet up. We need to plan for a Sox game next year. Are there pre-game tailgate opportunities available?

    Hey Mike. Best to you and your wife. How about some pictures of your son and the Blue Angels in the coming year? We haven't seen him in a while.

    That last post should have read this also: what's up all? Did I miss anything spectacular?

    Well with being a single dad it's a lot diff, the next 2 trips are really only plausible because I have SW flight vouchers so that helps, after these 2 , I would like to do HHI like I talked to you about before, that is drivable (WDW is also drivable but DD would be driving me nuts) so waiting on that till she's older but the march trip budget I would say is $1500, the DL trip since I rented pts will prob borderline 2k, but also that's me and DD so I would imagine yours would prob be quite a bit more

    I got my car back, it took awhile since everything was showing OK, so after my mechanic called me a few times (he knows I'm usually pretty accurate with pinpointing the problem) while I was on the phone with him it finally acted up, it did turn out to be the alternator like I thought:thumbsup2, but if someone who had no idea about cars brought it in most likely it would have been going back to the shop:scared1:, The alt was pretty pricey like I thought it would be and with a oil change it came to $366, not bad for not having to break down somewhere:confused3

    Pricey, but better than being stranded and better than a car payment.

    DW and I drove for our honeymoon to save $, but I probably would fly if it is just the two of us. Everything is x4 for the next decade.

    Just all our usual words of wisdom. :fart:

    Glad it was just the alternator.

    Send some of that white stuff this way. It is below zero here and there is no snow on the ground.

    I think we're getting unaided by southerners. They are canceling evening activities because the wind chill is only -20

    I sense the penguins are mobilizing.

    Agreed. It is supposed to be 13 degrees tomorrow morning here. A pile of snow means another day off and not having to go outside. I really need to convince DW to move to CJ's front yard with me.

    As long as I have the fear of her shiving me, I'll always have the need to be a few steps ahead. :thumbsup2



    Or out of the race. That may be safer, and less exhausting. :thumbsup2


    Seriously, if she starts training more, me and my achilles are cooked. :scared:
