I bet that we are #1 now.....Buddy cannot get enough ice cream
It is so nice that you get to take them out individually. I love high maintenance girls as long as I am not shopping with them. Some day I'll share my shopping trips with Debbie and Kim. Both were athletes, developed muscles in places girls should not until they are 25 and very opinionated about clothing. One shoe trip ended badly until Marisa picked her up, gave her 5 minutes to say yes to the shoe and leave
As Sheryl pointed out we all like free!
As long as the fussing have been taken care of.......................
We are having grilled steak, broccoli and salad. I started a potato and onion packet but Nola was having no part of my fixing dinner so that will wait until tomorrow. Dinner may be , Buddy has been saying there is nothing wrong with the grill but tonight it is just simmering. Mind you he has never used the grill and it is really in sad shape but tonight he said dinner would take a loooooooooog time. I am okay with that, I just poured a glass of wine to hold me over!
Crazy trip! I'm glad that you made the best of it
I hope it goes well.
I'm sorry you're having issues
I think we're having grilled shrimp and corn tonight... and maybe rice... my throat is back to bothering me a lot today and while I'm starving, it hurts too much to bother eating. I will see if I can get down the shrimp and corn without too much issue.
Disney WWYD: We are going to WDW Dec 18-26. I scored a great rate at a Comfort Inn for the first 5 nights but we need somewhere from 23-26, so three nights. Since I am told that is a crazy time at WDW, I thought we'd stay at The Dolphin so we don't have to drive anywhere if we don't want to and I looooooooove that Boardwalk area. Mom says the traffic is horrid and staying as close to property as possible is key. We may not even do the parks those days, but want to be close for dining, extra activities, pool, fireworks, etc. I got a $169 rate at Dolphin the first two nights but on Christmas, the lowest rate out is $319. Y'all, I have never spent that on a hotel and it kills me to pay rack. But it's Christmas! DH is about to have a heartattack Now, I paid $150 for the first FIVE NIGHTS of hotel total so I think we've earned the splurge but he's not as easily convinced.
We can stay at the Gaylord or Celebration Hotel for half the price. But, we'd have to drive anyplace we wanted to go and mess with parking/traffic. Is it worth the extra $150 to stay in the Epcot area on Christmas? Or would you save the money and book an offsite spot?
OH NOOO Praying I know we do things without thinking that's a sign that your doing well TAKE IT EASY MY FRIEND
Sheryl- You're lucky I don't bring out the eyebrow, I am known in other parts of the Dis for that and it means you are in trouble.
Change in dinner tonight, the ground beef was frozen and I didn't feel like messing with it so I am making crab legs.
I am going to be very good tonight and get lots of stuff done. I am off to eat dinner then I am going to find something to dust and fold.
Bejeweled Blitz is offline tonight.
Ditto from me!
Aimee - Are any "true" Disney on-site hotels available? The reason I'm asking is because if the parks fill to capacity, I'm not sure the Dolphin has the same status to get into the parks. Also, I can't remember if they are eligible for EMH or not. Otherwise, I think the Dolphin is a great location and the price is about half of what you'd pay at the neighboring WDW hotels.
Sheryl - I'm looking forward to Thursday!
Marilyn - Mice LOVE chocolate, and meat grease. They are nocturnal and tend to run along the walls - I've read it's because they don't see well and use their whiskers to help them move. So...put your traps along the edge of walls and bait them with meat grease or chocolate.
Glynis - That is a lot of shopping! Good luck!
Lauren - I hope you feel better soon! That sounds miserable.
Kathy - Sorry you are going through a rough time.
Nancy - That really stinks about the farm. Even the weather is not cooperating to help out the economy. This summer has been so weird for so much of the country. I think it's been normal here... Is it? Kathy? Sheryl? Is this normal?
There was more I was going to say...but I got distracted and now I can't remember.
I know someone was talking about a blueberry french toast recently. I looked back through the threads and couldn't find it. Can someone help? If it's something I can fix the night before I'd like to try it this weekend.
Sheryl Hopefully you are only sore and didn't hurt anything.
I have only one piece of carpet to take up but I am all out of steam. Working all day and then coming home to do demo is wearing me out. I found where Mr mouse got in upstairs. There is a hole in the floor of the closet. I will plug that up and my cat will not have anymore snacks.
I thought I should paint as long as the floor is not down. Then I won't have to worry about dripping on the new floor.
Glynis I have not shopped for Alex yet. September has always been his growing time. I am waiting for his growing to stop.
Tonight we went out for sandwiches I am pooped.
I've got a couple of overnight french toast recipes that call for various fruits. I'll look through my stuff and post what I can find.
Bethany - I'd like to comment on the weather here but I don't want to jinx us....extremely quiet hurricane season.....I didn't just say that.
Ok, here's a couple of recipes. None of them call specifically for blueberries, but I'm betting that you could throw them in.
Raspberry-Cinnamon French Toast
12 slices cinnamon bread, cubed
5 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 C. milk
1 C. packed brown sugar, divided
1/4 tsp. each cinnamon and nutmeg

Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Sprinkle almonds over the egg mixture. Combine butter and remaining brown sugar; drizzle over the top. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with raspberries. Bake 10 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
Maple French Toast Casserole
7 C. cubed French bread
1/2 C. golden raisins
1 pkg. (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 C. warm heavy whipping cream
1/4 C. maple syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Uncover, bake 20-25 minutes longer or until center is set and top is golden brown. Serve with syrup.
I know I have some more. I'll keep looking.
Thanks Glynis, that first one sounds yummy and not TOO bad for me...
I just went outside and the fighter jets are flying in circles. Kinda cool to watch.
I missed this earlier; I only caught it when I went back to see what I missed in the earlier post!
The guy is hot, but you are a hot mess!
It's NOT NOTHING. You don't have to share if you don't want to, but you are always welcome to share what's going on - good OR bad. That's what this thread is all about! It's like a family dinner in here...you meet up to eat, but the heart of the meal is the conversation and support.
I love a good burger! (Ask Sheryl ) Your kids sound like they are being raised right, and I'm always amazed at how committed they are to their activities.
WOW! I'm glad you're changing it out!
That is unbelievable about your trip - both the way the family dynamics went and also BOTH lights going out at the same time. Are you sure it's not some sort of short?
Say what? ...and I'm actually beginning to get unnerved by that...
Today was gorgeous minus about an hour of pouring rain.
And I KNEW it was going to rain. HOW? I always forget to put up that sunshade thing. My car (with a black interior) was so hot when I got in it to run errands. So when we got back, I put in the sunshade....because NO CLOUDS IN SIGHT. FINALLY remembered! Yes! And I thought to myself...because I'm putting this thing up, it's going to rain. MMmmhmmm. Rain it did!
And yes, OF COURSE I got caught out in it. I was out walking to the mailbox. With the dog that doesn't like rain.
Kathy I found this that Sheryl made http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=30331354&postcount=379 you can easily make pancakes instead of waffles or just zip over to Sheryl's house.
Alex went on a cheesecake factory tour and brought me homw a sampler of 4 different kinds. So far I had a small wedge of french silk last night and tonight I had the carmel apple. Since I am doing so much physical labor I thought I need the extra calories.
My upstairs looks so bad I hope no one comes by in the next couple of days. I forgot to mention. This morning I scared my self so bad. I was coming out of the bathroom and going do the hall and saw a dark shape out of the corner of my eye. It was my recliner but it sure put up quite a battle. Good thing I was alone and no one witnessed my punch a defenseless chair.
Ack! Whatever will I do late tonight while watching mindless TV?
Yes, they do have some but all of the deluxe hotels are pretty pricey. I usually okay at a moderate but hate the buses and end up driving and dealing with traffic anyways. I know, I'm weird. Plus the moderates are $219 We are likely not going to go to the parks on Christmas - if we do, it's be Epcot, which has not closed in the past (usually MK).
I checked and Swanolphin hotels are eligible for EMH and are on the WDW transportation system. But you can't charge to the room, buy the dining plan, or do package delivery.
Can I just say how much I my GI? I was watching TV a couple hours ago and the GI office called (caller ID). Picked it up and it was him! I expected his assistant, since she was checking on why I don't have medication yet. He said he got the lab results and the biopsies confirmed Crohns - what a surprise It is good news, as there is a slightly higher risk of cancer and you never want cancerous cells to show up.
He also wanted to see how I was feeling and when I told him about my throat, he said it should not still hurt. He apologized and said if it still hurts next week, come in and we'll see what's going on.
Nan - Thanks so much for the wrinkle release recipe. It is freaking amazing, my son will not have to look rumpled when he's at LSU!!!!!
That's wonderful news Aimee, hopefully your throat will get better soon!
It's really yummy with raspberries, but I imagine it would be really good with blueberries, too!
