Back from vacation. The Legoland Hotel was a success! The boys LOVED it! And to be honest, so did I! DH and I are now completely spoiled. We have never stayed on property anywhere before, so that was amazing. We really liked Legoland. Sea World and the Safari Park were lots of fun. I got to see my family. Some of them I haven't seen in 5 years. We will definitely go back to Legoland.

    :dog2: I think my dog is thinking that she is going to find a prince if she finds the right frog. It seems that almost every night this week at about 2 am...she gets a need to go out and then almost gets into licking them (getting too close...bad for dogs if its certain type of frog). I don't recall having her watching any Frog Prince theme movies unless she did with prior families (foster and her first adopted family). She is funny girl and she did not so interest in them last year when we had our house/yard.

    :wave:

    I finally got some direction in improving my legs...some good and bad news, but at least it is hope that pt and daily stretches will help me a lot. I got a lot of help with the sport sciences department and so happy that only medicine needed is otc pain relief. It sounds better for me to say that I have Runner's knee times 2 than its medical term. I do have arthritis behind each kneecap too.
    I am hoping to go on a trip or 2 by fall.

    And just in time for Mother's Day, my kids got sick. Oh yay! :headache:
    I hope that you have a good day (hope whatever making your kids sick is over quick)...even if you need a re-do. I remember getting chicken pox in the 2 weeks of my parents' anniversary/Mother's Day/Mom's birthday when I was like 12.. They did go out to eat on their anniversary before my sister came home from school and I was chilling out on the couch watching tv.

    I hope so! I remember getting Walking Pneumonia when I was 5. My sister informed me I was the reason we had to cancel Christmas. Que the tears. Turns out my cousin had the flu so Christmas was cancelled anyways!

    So sorry @superme80, hope they get better soon!

    Happy Mother's Day to all Moms out there, and anyone else that has "mothered" anyone in their lives, even though maybe not birthed them. (Hope that came out right, and made sense, it certainly was meant lovingly) :) You are all awesome! I'm wistful of people who have great Mom relationships, since I unfortunately lost my own when I was 3.

    A special Happy Mother's Day to Miss Madelyn (not sure of spelling), @WebmasterPete 's Mom. You are absolutely precious in the vlogs, and have done a wonderful job raising Pete. I'm sure a lot of us (including me!!) want you for OUR Mom! So I'm making you my Honorary Mom for the Day, hope you don't mind! Hugs!! :hug:

    We had a weird day Monday. We waited to do our groceries after the storms today. There were bad storm damage near where we used to have a house...so it was maybe a good timing last year for the sale because we had close calls in the past couple of years. We did 2 grocery store run because Publix only 75%of what we needed so we had great service and I'm good on Diet Dr. Pepper for most of week unless dh drinks it (he is giving up a lot of sugary drinks because his A1C was not good level...he used to be in a normal range so we are both cracking down on the naughty foods. Then, we went to the other grocery store across the street to get the other part of the list. I saw this lady shopping at the same time as us 3 weeks ago...the last time we did this Publix/other store location...3 weeks ago and on a different day of the week. I hope not to sound mean...but, I remember this lady because she was wearing the same "outfit" on the prior visit. Well, 3 weeks ago, this lady was wearing a thin hospital gown...no pants. I thought at the time that she must have just got out of the hospital and had to grab food before Easter. Well, Monday, she was in the same gown and it was showing off more than it should. Dh and I were approaching the check out and saw that she was having issues with her cart. Dh walked over and helped pick up what spilled out and she told him that she had recent surgery. The cashier was rushing this woman and had pulled the closed chain after dh help push her cart to where it was needed. The cashier was nasty and said that was closed after this lady's order plus self check-out was our only option unless this lady's order was fast enough for her to our cart. The lady felt bad and ask if we could go ahead of her to which we replied that we do the self-checkout. The self-checkout is a pain with bulky items and 15 plus items. We were finished before the lady was with her cart. DH might call Customer service on that cashier because she was rude to us and others on prior visits.

    Dh's mother texted dh on Saturday morning saying that she hope to drop by Saturday night or Sunday morning for a visit to check out our new place. Thank goodness no visit yet because we don't have the guest room ready yet. MIL and several other family members are road tripping SC/GA/? I think she drunk texted dh last night at 230 am saying she was going to bed at 230am and to text her in the morniing. Not bad for a 81 year old woman with some health challenges...meanwhile my folks...a decade younger chilling out after a road trip to see their grands (sister's family) and hiking.

    I guess I should catch some of you up on why I have been a little silent on here lately. I put in for a new job within the Department of Transportation before the end of last year. Well, I found out in February that I was going to get the job and the middle of March I started. It was hard leaving the guys I worked with for a little over 10 years, but I needed to look after myself for my retirement. This new job was a pay increase and where I am at now, will give me the opportunity to move up. It has been a lot of learning during the first 2 months and I still don't know everything. I am working with the Department's fueling system.

    This summer is going to be a fun one with a lot of different things going on...My best friend and Disney travel partner is getting married on June 15th, so I have her wedding (I am in it) and five days later, we are going on a 9 day cruise. It is a group of 55 going on this cruise. Then I get to go to Disney in August!!! I am excited about that since it is my first DIS event other than GKTW meets locally.

    Congrats on the new job and opportunities! Your summer plans sound fun too.

    It looks like I'm up for bad wife award today and Worst DIL.

    I tried to get a nap before dh got home from work after taking the dog out at 6am. He came home and said that he wanted to go to Urgent care to see if he had a sinus infection. He seemed off last night before working his overnight 9 hour shift. He ate too close to his bedtime and thought it was indigestion and felt like his nasal passages were clogged up ( 2 clues missed)

    Well, if you thinking --call 911/get help asap....that would had been the correct answer to pick, but he is his mother's son and chose to drive himself to urgent care thinking that it was not a heart attack instead of telling me help. We are real close to ems and top cardiac hospital in the region. I pointed the place to him last week on the way back from one of my appointments for just in case. He didn't realize that he forgot his cell phone and he forgot to update our info in his medical file so I had to figure out through snooping his emails where to find him and what was going on. So, I had to walk to where he was transferred for emergency procedure.

    DH is doing better, but he needed to stop talking for a little to get his oxygen sats up so I learn how to Uber to get to where he left it (lucky that he did not crash or pass out based on his numbers). I got home and call the night nurse and he said dh needed rest. So, I am trying to figure out his work numbers to tell his 2 main bosses what was up.

    The hard part tonight or maybe tomorrow is telling his mom and family. The nurse staff and dh thinks maybe tomorrow is better for that task. I just trying how to tell MIL that her baby had what was one of top fears even thought all of the medical staff tell me that he is doing good/stable. He is chatty and joked some, but he is concerned about bills and no pay for not working. He is not happy that he might not be allowed on the fun WDW rides this year. I told him that I had to invade his privacy to find info. I was lucky to find his phone and figured out his phone code.

    So, this makes me--- the Worst Wife winner.

    OMG NC Belle. I'm glad he at least went to urgent care and they picked up on what was going on and got him to the right place. I hope he has a speedy recovery.

    I'm not seeing where in that story you did the "worst wife" thing though. Do you mean you should have driven him over? Considering he thought he had a sinus infection, that's hardly grounds for that title.
