    Vicki, glad there were no surprises and the mechanic was close to what he originally estimated repair costs would be

    The highlight of it all is your vacation is still on!

    Hope your car lasts for many more years and no big expenses in the future

    Hope all have a great night and have sweet dreams!

    Good evening. Late night for us tonight. Tonight was B’s last band concert. I’m really going to miss these. The band instructor recognizes each graduating senior individually and gives them each a $10 iTunes gift card. It has become tradition for each student to give him a small gift, usually chocolate. We were trying to be unique and gave him orange and white (he’s a UT grad) M&Ms in containers that look like football cleats. I would have preferred a musical themed container, but the store didn’t have any.

    Ugh, I messed up the multi quote. I’m going to post this and try again.

    Thanks Mac. I am feeling somewhat better today. Hope Luna is doing better.

    Hope you had a great day.

    Sending well wishes too you. The only new thing we have added to the trip is meeting dh’s niece. I think we may have more then enough planned.

    Sorry about the car repairs. A necessary evil.

    Guess I should try to get some sleep now.
    Good night.

    [​IMG] Why yes it is. And, it's [​IMG] to all the homies. A Wednesday. And Keisha, have not heard from ya lately, maybe still enjoying that luau? Hope all is well out your way this hump of a day.

    Mac, yeah, I loved my pets too, but after letting the labs sleep with us, the boxer got pushed off most of the time. Hope Luna is feeling better soon, Yeah, early bird, or night owl, sleep is needed.

    Busier commute. Seems those that telework most of the time, have to show up on a Wednesday. But that's okay, it was a beautiful, and clear and cool start. Looked at phone, what? 46 out? Jacket, hello. Sunglasses, why yes you can come. Almost frosty windows, defroster on, windows open so I can see, heated seat, and poof, arrival just as the sun was starting to rise. Still coming in the dark, but yes, yes, yes, the sun is here. And to hit around 70 this afternoon. Woot! Walk at lunch time is ON.

    With that, Charade, hope you are feeling well, and better today. Yeah, the senior year of high school is a busy one. Little one is buying her prom ticket today. I did not think the price was that bad, and cannot believe it's coming up in a few weeks. It will be odd, no more elementary school kids in my house, by the summer.

    With that, Tink has her car back, and the vacations are on! Winner, winner. And hey, less trinkets, not a deal breaker in my book. Either way, I hope your vacations are fabulous, and relaxing.

    Mac, hope you get a nap or two in today. And have a great day too!

    [​IMG] - Sending hugs to all the homies that need it, that includes Real, Sue, and Charade.

    [​IMG] - time for tea.

    Enjoy this beautiful Spring day in May.

    Later homies. Get up, it's a Wednesday, Whopper of a one too.

    Sending you some sun, Patty. We still have some clouds, and play the chances of rain today, and the rest of this week, with best chances on Friday. Enjoyed your cruise trip report. Looking forward to cruising with Carnival this time. And woot, actually saw an increase in our cabin type, so glad I booked when I did. Not that early, but I guess good enough. Still waiting to see what Disney wants for December of 2020. Their Spring 2020 prices, it's a nope from me. And, after your report, looking more at Royal now too.

    Tea and sweater.

    Hope all are enjoying their drink of choice.

    [​IMG] and yep. [​IMG] to all you homies.

    I can relate! My little Yorker-poo had to have several teeth extracted. Broke my heart He has such a wonderful smile! He always gives me a big smile when I come home. Fortunately there were no complications.

    I just love those torrential Florida rains. And T storms. We don’t get rains like that at home. Our last time we stayed at wdw Polynesian a huge storm moved in. We just made it back from the park in the nick of time. Spent an hour sitting on our balcony watching.

    Great cartoon. Thanks for well wishes. I had a terrible night, nauseous. I didn’t have much to come up as I was not feeling like eating much, but lots of heaves. My ribs are sore now. Hopefully this is the end of it.

    I think it’s just as big a transition for the parents! My daughter was in everything, 2 bands, and sports teams plus music lessons outside of school and karate Seemed so strange when it all stopped!

    Awww, you’re a good kitty momma!

    [​IMG] Sue, sorry to hear you had a bad night. Hope your tummy issues get fixed fast, and hope the soreness in your ribs goes away fast. That goes for whatever ails you too, that is goes away fast. Well wishes and mummy dust to you.

    And lunch time walk, lovely. Just lovely. Though I had to keep my sweater on.

    Enjoy your afternoon, every one.

    Thanks Lynne. I think things came to a head last night, and on the mend. Tummy feels better now so must have gotten rid of what ever that was. Just soreness and cold symptoms remain. Must have picked up something on flight.

    Good evening everyone. Not much going on today. Last night B asked one of her band classmates what they would be doing until school is out. (The underclassmen with spend the next few days practicing the music for graduation.) She said that they would probably just hang out in the hallways. Thus morning B wasn’t going to take her clarinet to school. But I insisted that she take it. I figured the band teacher would still have them playing something. This afternoon I asked her if she needed it and she said no. So what sis you do in band class? Oh, we just hung out in the hallways.

    Aw...I know it’s a little annoying, but it’s also sweet. My cat will sleep next to me, but never on me.

    Feeling mostly better now, thanks. Now if I could just stop waking up at 3:00 in the morning.

    Hope the weather improves soon.

    Glad to hear you are somewhat better now. I hope the rest goes away quickly.

    Well, tomorrow I go in for another test and hopefully get the results of the last one.

    Happy hump day indeed. Allergies back in full force again ugh. At least not tummy issues-poor Sue! Hope it is completely gone now. At least it is sunny now. although chances of rain start creeping back up everyday. Son has a soccer game every night due to so many makeup games from rainouts. He has to miss the one tomorrow as his 7th grade band concert is then.
    Middle teen found out the marching band show for her senior year monday-was very upset, almost in tears. She's always loved band so it has to be bad. The band director has been good for so many years, but he is literally marking hours to retirement now I think. His wife does color guard, so she chooses and choreographs the show. Called "Into the mix" about different stages of baking is how DD explained it to me. I think it will be better than it is sounding right now. At least she has the show schedule for sure and can book flights for HHN now!
    Mummy dust on the test results charade.
    Sweet cat mom Mac, hope Luna is on the mend now.
    babies.JPG the girls all tucked in. They weren't happy about the flash picture, and Lola is showing off her fluffy bum.

    Had Tuesday off and cleaned the house, before I met a friend for happy hour. Found this before I left (DH home most of morning working, he left while I was in shower)
    funny.JPG He also bought us all shirts from Under Armour as he had a coupon code, and gift card from Christmas. Got a UV protective shirt - will be good for snorkeling in the Caribbean. 2 weeks from tomorrow and we will be in Universal!

    Lynne's tea talk had me making a cup of blueberry bliss-no milk as DH forgot to get it-used a splash of vanilla creamer instead-may do this from now on so good.

    Happy pre friday eve LOL

    Charade, hope that test gives you the info you need to feel back to normal.

    Haha, MonyK. Potty humor! Love it. Nice picture of the girls. They look a little smaller than my neighbor’s chickens. Great HHN this year is a go. And hope your DD gets more into the band show. I think senior year has lots of time for stress to happen.

    Quiet evening, and that is good with me. DH is not feeling well, so hope his doctor appointment next week will help him out. I think the kids left some of the meal I made for him. Burgers with fresh cooked corn on cob, and sliced tomatoes. Little one had hers with rice, as she is like me, not fond of white bread buns.

    To all a good night.

    Charade, prayers said for good test results tomorrow for your past
    test
    Hope the new test tomorrow does not
    involve needles
    (I fear needles)

    Monyk
    Thanks for the pictures of the chickies!
    Absolutely darling!

    Laughed at the toilet picture
    Gonna try to pull that off for Mr Mac

    Lynne
    Sending Mummy Dust your Mr feels better and the doc visit will help get answers to why he has been feeling poorly

    Well, the cat is a pill...
    And I say that lovingly..

    The vet tech comes to our house twice a day for giving medicine to the cat

    After she left this morning, cat waited 5 minutes and spit the pill out
    I lived with it
    Second tech visit this evening she did a double check no pill in the throat

    But tech said the sutures have pulled out from cat reaching
    Will wait a few weeks as she is on meds for two weeks before vet decides when surgery will be done again

    It used to be my boys I fussed over now it is cats

    Hope you all get better weather
    Come live in Georgia and have the heat start early..
    Today was mild temps of 77
    Next 5 days 87-88

    But the heat flexuates so I’ll know when it happens
    Usually a shower during the day and then it gets steamy

    Have sweet dreams and a good nights sleep !

    Yeah Mac, my pill popping lab would spit out her pills too. What we had to do is open her mouth, and stick the pill down her throat, keep he mouth closed until she swallowed. It was annoying to find the pills in my carpet. Hope Luna gets better, and doesn't need that extra surgery. She's a lucky cat.

    With that, drink up, homies. It's a Thursday, and a thirsty one at that.

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] [​IMG] and it can't come any sooner. This has been a long week.

    Quick commute, some rain in the wee hours, but thankfully ending before the commute. Feeling a little warmer start, but that's because of the rain, and cloudy sky. But lest you think we don't have a nice day in store, I spy some blue in that sky, and a ball of bright yellow coming out of the clouds. 74 is the high this afternoon. You can bet, that lunch time walk is definitely a go.

    With that, hope Charade gets some answers from that test today, hope Sue is feeling better, and the sore ribs are no more, hope CK and Schumi are having fun at the Dark Side, and hope Tink's work day is a short one, and she'll be enjoying some wine tonight.

    Time for tea, for me. Have a terrific Thursday to all the homies. Robo, hope you are enjoying a nice cup of coffee this morning, that includes Patty, too.

    Mac, hope your morning is better with Luna today. Naps. That's your word of the day. LOL Hope you do get a good night sleep soon.

    [​IMG] - have at it. Later homies.

    Good morning to the homies
    Friday means end of the line for work

    Anyone have plans for the weekend?
    Those with kids will be busy I assume
    as no school or work days then


    So you think Monyk could have her chicks autograph the pic she shared with us
    I don’t want to call one of the chickadees by the wrong name

    I was known to call out wrong name when the 4 boys were at home and it always ticked them off
    Lol

    Hope all have good weather for today and the weekend

    Well, it's almost Friday, Mac. Hope you are doing okay, and Luna is resting nicely.

    The sun is trying to shine, and sweater is on. That is all.

    Beep.
