Eek, like this SANS has been alive since 2015. Think this high rise does need a new building soon, Mac. I want a room with a view of the beach and blue water, with a tea caddy with tea always ready for me, in the new #13. Kinda fitting with all of us having HHN on our minds.

Warm night, and kids are out with their camp coworkers celebrating another summer camp season that will be over tomorrow. Then back to school for all, as many are college students and teachers.

Two loads of laundry done. Seems little one and older one needed clean clothes tonight. Not used to doing wash on week days. Tend to only do wash on the weekends.

Ah, final load to get out of the dryer. Have s lovely night, with many 💤 deep sleeping 😴.

    Good evening. I meant to stop by earlier but got caught up in other things. Work was a little rough today. I walked in the door this morning and was immediately greeted by my boss who told me the computer was down. She had tried to do something with our scheduling software and managed to completely mess it up. Thankfully about 15 minutes on the phone with tech support was able to fix the problem. I’m a little worried because we are supposed to be getting a new computer next week and will need to install the scheduling software on it.
    My boss also told me today that our client who has kidney cancer also has it in her lungs. Boss doesn’t expect her to be around for much longer. She said that the woman is so weak that she wasn’t even able to sit up for her therapy session. She had to have her session while laying down on the sofa.

    Lynne - I discovered that the beds in B’s dorm are height adjustable. B’s bed was on the highest setting. I thought I would need to get her some under bed storage, but the school has provided two 2 drawer chests that go under the bed and make sort of like a dresser.

    The adjustment is difficult. Remember congratulating myself that I didn’t start boo-hoo’ing till in the car heading home after dropping off at the dorm the first time. The first whole semester was really rough. Important to put on a brave face, kids likely have even a more difficult time after initial excitement wears off and need all the support they can get. It gets better
    I remember the college drop off first time-I was OK (my son was more the mess later), but it was just weird not having her around everyday.
    So far I am doing okay. I haven’t cried....yet. I have resisted the urge to text her and ask how she is doing. I keep reminding myself that she is only across town.

    Charade...it is always bittersweet when they do that first move out. It's sooo exciting for them, to gain that independence, but we are left with the quiet and memories. Sending you a few tight hugs.
    Thanks Pumpkin. I am hoping that she does gain some independence and a little more maturity. It already feels weird not having her at home.

    Yes we are movin
    I’ll put in a request for a room with a Mountain View. I’d also like a big, comfy window seat.

    Almost midnight. I guess I should get some sleep. I have errands to run tomorrow.

    Yes we are moving soon

    I started to make the new thread last week but put it aside and did not get back to it

    Will give a heads up to all when we move to the new home
    That is a good idea!!!!

    Aug 19th would be an excellent day to move..... ::yes::

    Lynne....safe travels today.....have a wonderful trip with your daughter....



    Didn't sleep great.....I think watching Chernobyl was scarier than any horror movie you could watch.....just remembering it all and it is so sinister!!! Weird dream night for sure when I did sleep. Although that's nothing unusual for me...….I delight Tom every morning with a barrage of my slightly strange and very vivid dreams......he loves it.....:laughing:

    Friday today...…..need to post a birthday card to one of my brothers.....and that's about the extent of my duties today...….free day again.....

    I never mind doing laundry any day....but for some reason I prefer to get it all done during the week and leave our weekends free......not sure why as every day is like a weekend...…..:thumbsup2

    And some of Tom`s gifts arrived yesterday......Kyle ordered them with his credit card so when the boxes arrived he didn't even think for a second when he saw his name on the boxes. And I got one of those online card companies to make a large card with loads of uploaded pictures on the front.....he`ll love it. A mix of Tom and I and him and Kyle over the last 12 years......all Orlando pics funnily enough...he`ll love it.

    Now need to wander off on my own to pick up bits and pieces and wrapping paper.

    Boring breakfast of rice krispies this morning I think.......unless...….well, there is bacon...…...:rolleyes1

    And almost forgot...…..3 WEEKS TILL HHN OPENING NIGHT!!!!! party:

    Woot! A Friday is here.

    Thanks Schumi, I hope it is a quiet and early arriving flight.

    Lots of errands to do, and pack before we leave later this afternoon, as my DH says he would rather drive us, rather then we take the train. We both know there will be lots of traffic being a Friday afternoon. Does not matter to me. Unless there is an accident, should take us just a bit more than going on the train. And hey, door to door service.

    MonyK, Safe flight this morning and have s drink at the pool for me, and lots of fun with Mickey at the party tonight. Tried to talk little one to go to that party our last night, but she was not impressed with the last one we went to, so it’s the TL night tomorrow that will be the only park in the World we will go to this time. Fine with me.

    Tea for me, and my list. I will wait until the kids leave, then be out the door quick. Hoping the morning traffic is not too bad.

    My fav Addams family member
    Yep.... Uncle Fester was awesome.

    Heads up to my fellow Halloween animated decoration button pusher.....LOL....Big Lots has their Halloween merchandise in the store. I stopped by yesterday and they had some very nice options.

    We did take Elise for a ramble up into the woods behind us today.....she is adorable and we love having her anytime......her face was covered in purple as she stuffed loads of brambles into her little mouth.......I told her mother when we took her home I’m not responsible if her tummy is upset tonight......lol.....glad she wasn’t staying overnight here!!! We did have a little spray bottle of water to give them a wash before she ate any.....but she wasn’t interested.......she’s a hardy little thing! Hope you’re having a great day.......
    That is so cute...yep....the after effects of all the berries would not be fun, but at least it was fruit...:)

    Thanks family for the birthday wishes for my son. He is on vacation with daughter in law and will be back today. So will celebrate tomorrow or Sunday. Will let him pick.


    Have a great Friday Sans family.

    Since there already was a clown sighting today ...

    View attachment 426196
    Cat.......why’d it have to be a cat........:rotfl:

    I was so disappointed by the IT remake.......watched it in record time on the plane during one trip over.......the original was never a real favourite of mine, but should have left it alone........



    Heating has been on today........rain hasn’t stopped at all. But, feels so autumnal instead of summer like as it’s supposed to be.

    My niece is out in DisneyLand right now......like Tom she’s a big SW fan but has been so disappointed in it. She’s sent us a couple of pictures but they cut their time short their and heading to Vegas a couple of days to finish off their trip. Loved California though.......they spend almost three weeks out there every year but had never visited DL before. Don’t think they’re planning on going back to the parks again.

    Dinner is chicken mac n cheese........and Chernobyl later......

    Sigh, just as we were ready to head out, flight delayed an hour. Everyone cross their fingers and toes no more delay. Did talk to the Portofino and they were so nice, they will check us in, and have our room keys ready when we do arrive.

    Hope the rain lets up, MonyK. Nice to be at pool if raining, as wet already.

    Thanks for the fun wishes from Robo and Mac. Thank you ladies, we are getting excited.

    Hi everybody :wave2:

    Glad to see monyk enjoying her pool time...have a fruity drink for me 🍹

    Lynne...hope you get on your flight without any further delays and have a wonderful time.

    I made our scareactor dining reservations today since we enjoyed it last year and it's a good way to wait for HHN to start as opposed to baking in the sun. We also got some awesome pictures so why not?

    Not looking forward to the next few days in the garden center as it's supposed to be in the upper 90s...bring on the powerade :drinking1

    I'm resting up today and only doing laundry...made a nice healthy grilled chicken salad for lunch with fresh cucumbers and tomatoes from my garden.

    Hope you all have a great day and stay cool :flower1:

    Just a fly by. Haven’t been able to catch up. Exhausted each night. Even though we take afternoon pool breaks. Most days anyway.

    Last day :sad1: I don’t know where the time goes. Back in our room. Going to start packing. Then one last kick at the can tonight.
    The Max pass is worth its weight in gold. Been able to get so much done. Making FP for next ride while waiting to get on current one.

    Well better stop procrastinating and pack.

    Just booked Cabana Bay for our return trip next year! I'm so excited, but didn't want to create a thread just for that. I'm signing the papers to close on selling my moms house on Tuesday. It sold in 7 hours to a wonderful woman who is just thrilled to be purchasing it. I'm so happy to be at the end of this long, long process. I don't even want to think of how many hours I've spent on the phone chasing down various things, turning some things off, some things on etc. I just wanted to share my gratitude for finally coming to an end point.

    ahhhh, Friday night and a free weekend ahead.

    Good evening. Today was errand day. Did my favorite thing (insert sarcasm here) and went to the grocery store. I decided to clean out my refrigerator before I went shopping. I found things that had expired in 2016. Oops.
    I guess tomorrow will be laundry day.


    Looking forward to hearing reports from everyone who is leaving for vacation soon.


    Welcome to Bethany.

    :welcome: to your new home here with us!

    It's just a chat thread and hope you come back and stay with us.
    We love adding homies here!

    What a great thing to get that house sold.
    You will sleep well tonight knowing Tuesday will come soon and the house will no longer be under your care.

    When my parents left their house and moved to a retirement place, I had to get that house ready to be sold.
    It sat on the market for one week shy of 13 months.
    Only had one offer on it and took it
