    Hey Mac! Hope everything is OK!

    No, the baby comes in April...so plenty of time to think up names! :)

    Right now our concern is Hurricane Sandy. We are on the South Shore of Long Island and already are getting some serious wind gusts. We are under a mandatory evacuation but we are staying. We rode out Irene and are going to do the same with Sandy. I'll keep checking in as long as I have power and web!

    I hope you stay safe and well....looks very nasty!!!

    Macraven.........hope mr mac is doing ok :goodvibes

    We`ve all had flu again!!! DS missed 2 days of classes and has gone today but none of us feel quite right yet. Nasty bugs and viruses all over the place. Been in bed for 5 days so slowly getting back to normal. Got no real energy yet.

    We had snow Friday and it was perishing out apparently (dh did all the shopping).......today is so mild in comparison.......then we wonder how we get all these bugs!!

    Sat with hot tea and jelly beans.

    Hope everyone is doing ok :)

    morning all

    6 inches of rain by midnight and 60 mph winds projected here. counties east and south of us supposed to get blizzards:scared1:. We're in the spot where the arctic front is colliding with the storm so it's bit of a crap shoot projecting exactly what wicked this way comes, i feel so special.:rolleyes1

    trick-or-treat cancelled until Saturday, sandy is turning out to be a big old hag. i'll be spending most of afternoon taking down outdoor display so it doesn't go airborne, then put it back up again end of week:upsidedow

    for yinz guys directly on the coast hunker down.

    Hey all! Remember me? Yeah, I'm always here but never have much to say. Glad to hear everyone is well after this incredible storm. We're all well here - Janet, we just booked a cruise (yay!) for the first time since 2004! Surprisingly, on Carnival we were able to get a cheaper rate for being IN residents than for the military rate (only by $60, but still). Going on the Carnival Freedom (just DH & me) on January 6th to the Western Caribbean. 6 night cruise but got one of the awesome aft wrap balconies so we're excited! :cool1:

    I thought of you guys when I saw this pic this morning and read the comments. This was from one of the NJ subway stations and the comment was "It's just like the ride at Universal...except they don't have the reset button to press when they're done!" :eek:

    Greetings from a wind blown Phila. :wave:
    We lost power for a day, and a lot of others are still dark. Many traffic signals dark too.

    Kids are happy, no school for 3 days!


    We miss USO and are really thinking about seeing the Hollywood version.

    Stay safe everyone! :)

    a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

    :dance3: i can smell the new theme park!

    marci - lol i thought the same thing when i saw that pic. congrats on the cruise booking:thumbsup2and the aft, best cabins aboard imo. Keep that weather eye on the horizon;), CCL usually throws out some extra love to vets in November and you could flip that rate. Did u book early saver? We wound up with nice OBC but you do have to be diligent about checking and submitting the form.

    Janet - don't think we're going to get any more OBC because that was the last cabin in that category so there are no "comparable" rates. Plus we booked within 75 days so too late for ES. Decided we wanted the particular cabin (balcony) more than a little more more OBC so we'll just be happy with what we have!

    i'm so glad you waited until you got home from your holiday before you got sick.

    sending mummy dust and candy and well wishes you all pull through this and sneeze no more....

    i hope it is not bertie beans you have when you say jelly beans....
    some of the bertie stuff tastes nasty.

    oh, i did get to meet up with vicky on my darkside trip.
    she was a delight to be with.
    i see she hasn't made her way back here to talk about her fun but hopefully she will soon.

    been thinking about you marci!

    how do you like living in indiana?

    getting adjusted to it yet?


    since we all still have your old address, thought we would use your other place for our thanksgiving get together.
    don't worry, we won't trash the place.
    we will even take out all the empty bottles and paper plates when we are done.
    figure your place in GB is close to cicielli's (how ever it is spelled) in canada is closer for the homies here to travel to......

    hey, how's the boys doing?

    Hey Mac - boys is all good! :thumbsup2 Visited Matt in CO and Stephen and Eric a couple weeks ago in Boston for their Parents Weekends. Everyone is surviving! If i didn't tell anyone, Matt will be doing a semester exchange to West Point next semester so hopefully we can plan a trip out to the East Coast to visit him, the boys in Boston, my brother, my husband's parents and sister/family, and most importantly, our good buddy Killington (skiing).

    You're welcome to go up to GB but I'm guessing the new owners of the house might be a bit miffed at you crashing the place! ;) We actually sold shortly after we moved here (actually got the offer the day after we moved all our stuff out!). Glad to be done with Wisconsin! There's lots of room in this house though without the boys so you all are welcome to crash here any time you want!

    marci great to hear you're settling in well to the new digs & the kids are doing well.:thumbsup2 Don't see a ticker for your cruise missy!;) trying to count on fingers and toes if you'll be gone same times as us but need more coffee before brain kicks into gear.
