    Morning everyone :wave:

    Overcast today and it’s 70. So thankful not to have to deal with the snow and ice anymore. Had my share for years of of that weather. Having my morning mug of coffee :surfweb:. A few errands today.

    Lynne you all have really been hit this winter for sure. Hope you’re weather breaks soon and you get some good weather.

    Schumi sounds like you had a lovely Mother’s Day. You will have the best gift when you leave for Orlando Tuesday.
    What a sweet gift your son gave you to get your new luggage.

    I guess this means that schumi is not having all of us over for that pancake and bacon breakfast on Tuesday.

    Yeah Monday after daylight saving spring forward is for the birds-especially as I forgot to reset the dang coffee pot clock!
    Safe drive Lynne-this winter stuff needs to be done already. It is still too cold to get anything done in garden-trying to talk DH into building me a greenhouse when he moves the shed. Will have to take out a couple fruit trees, but I have had issues with some leaf curling disease on them the last couple years anyway.

    We are trying to get away with cramming stuff in a "personal item" to avoid checking bags/paying fees-think we can do it. It is supposed to be a "budget" trip (although I just booked Caring for Giants tour on our last day:rolleyes1, did get AP discount though)

    Soooooo not in a working mood.:sad2: Have to remember I work to travel...

    Did actually cook yesterday-salmon and chicken with Jack Daniel sauce, large baked potato with all the fixins and brown sugar carrots. Have an extra kid again-DS' best friend. I expect he will go home sometime tomorrow LOL.

    WOOHOO to Schumi nearly zero countdown!

    After stalking the website for over a month, this am finally decent AP rates opened up for a few days our May trip @ RPH. :banana:Same rate was double for last few weeks. Surprised the big drop for same basic room.

    No matter how many times I experience it, thunder snow is amazing to behold.

    Lynn yikes u got nailed. We had it easy, yea!

    Excellent! I’m psyched to see Herman’s Hermits. Awesome show last year:)

    Shashay! It can be shocking to see kids you know all gussied up


    Hmmm the Beetlejuice method? Lol
    I hate spring time changes. Did see FL considering going year one fixed. Good luck to them, maybe it’ll spread.

    GD sickie chickie, dropped off this am @ 5 am. Too bad I stayed up past 3 am watching TV lol. Running on fumes. At least my soup seemed to help the cause.:)

    Heck, celebrate them both! Enjoy that trip, hope u have marvelous weather

    Why else does one behave in RL, let ‘Er rip. Life is short.

    Came home with freezing rain. And little one has soccer practice later tonight. Um, I will stay in the car.

    Now saying a dusting to 2 inches. I guess they will tell us tomorrow morning, as we get the snow. ❄️

    Relaxing after sandwich and soup dinner.

    After moving to Georgia, I stopped making bbq ribs for dinner.
    Was so much easier getting them out as many places specializes in them.

    The place at the bottom of our ridge has great ribs but still cheaper to make them at home.

    Today was the second time I have made ribs at home instead of buying them out.

    Started them early morning and slow cooked them.

    Only two ribs left from dinner tonight.

    It's the one thing I don't mind making if i have the time.


    You'll come to my place next time I do the ribs.



    I feel really bad for Lynne and all the homies that are
    suffering from the weather.
    Snow, freezing rain, no power, icy roads, etc.

    Lived with that all my life until I moved South.
    I know how it stinks living in those conditions.


    :hug: to all

    Ack that is a good deal! dang that we can't get in on a renewal rate!
    So DH asked me today if I had heard of the roller coaster at Universal where you can choose the music as you ride it:sad2: Pretty sure he and middle rode it several times in 2015. He also asked if I had made our Disney resort reservations yet? Guess he thinks I am a rookie?? What is worse is he was In. the. room. in January when I booked the bounce back! If he didn't have a ton of stuff going on right now I'd be seriously worried about alzheimers, as memory issues have been very bad lately. But life is wonky right now, so he gets a pass. He and the kids are really looking forward to Universal again.

    Outdoor soccer starts tomorrow, and tomorrow night practice is gonna be chilly. May have to pull a Lynne and hide in the car LOL!

    Yay to Charlie sleeping! Oh momma must be feeling like new!

    Safe travels Schumi. Enjoy the wine and plane watching tonight. One more sleep, and you'll be on one of those planes.

    Morning Mac. Yum, ribs. I do like them, older one is more a rib fan than me. Ohh, I hope they keep those special AP deals this summer. My pass expires in August. Nice you can take advantage of it.

    Yay for Charlie sleeping well, and a 2 week countdown. We got 2 inches of very icy snow, and it's still snowing.

    Yeah, I'm Not Driving, did. Was a very dark, cold and wet ride. The still failing snow made the ride even more fun. Several not so fun accidents so far this morning. Salt trucks are out, but icy spots due to 34 out. Hey, at least we are above freezing now.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] and it's [​IMG]

    Yep, put that rib meat on a taco, and there ya go.

    Have a terrific Tuesday homies. Drink, those tacos can make ya thirsty.



    and a funny:

    Morning everyone :wave2:

    Mac that’s is a sweet deal on the AP renewal.

    Lynne sorry to hear of the bad weather heading your way again. Stay safe and warm and drink lots of nice hot tea.

    Yeah, Keisha on getting some good AP rates at RPH.

    Schumi, safe travels to you and Tom. Enjoy your prosecco and a yummy lunch and dinner at airport hotel. Tomorrow you will be on your way to Orlando for some Florida sunshine :sunny:

    Running an hour behind. Changed all the clocks, forgot my wristwatches. Can’t rush a roast.

    Sun shining & snow is blowing sideways. It must be the end of the world

    You’ve gotten similar deals in the past as I recall?

    I’m not up to bat till middle of Oct. sure not going to hold my breath.

    You’d think it’d be fair for renewal deals to run for a full year so everyone could avail themselves of them or let others buy renewal in advance, then apply it when the time is neigh.

    Too bad i don’t run the (real) world lol

    Same for the mr, i think although he may be July. I deliberately staggered all our APs for different months to give me a bit of breathing room in the budget.

    Oooh, oooh...pick me! Thanks to my southern friends I know the proper response to ur hubby’s actions:

    Bless his heart :)


    Never get tired of that minion on the plane meme, reminds me of the old twilight zone episode with William shatner.

    I can almost convince myself i’m ‘Saving money’ haha.

    I officially need new glasses, thought you wrote cash. :crazy:
