Good morning, everyone!

434680

Yay for all the homies who are already in USF/IOA and those that soon will be in the area within the past couple of weeks, or so! For those that area traveling soon stay safe and double check your packing! Also, I hope everyone else stayed safe during Dorian who wasn't in FL as well, as well as hope everyone is well in general. It seems a few of us have been sleep deprived, or had issues with work lately, so hang in there!

@RAPstar it will be interesting to hear a review from you. I've been reading mixed signal reviews, seems it's either amazing, or anti-climatic from people in terms of the whole GE experience.

Also, @macraven and @schumigirl, as well as others I'm sure, I'll be waiting for the word on how HHN truly is as well. It's one thing to see the main blogs post general reviews, but it's another experience to hear from fans who are really into it.

As for me I may have taken a sick day yesterday. Stomach wasn't up to snuff. I think I could power through, but decided to just take a load off and take it a day off for once instead of powering through. Also, I may, or may not have used the time to keep binge watching Superstore.

Morning Robo, glad to hear you are enjoying your coffee, as I am enjoying my tea. Quite muggy out, when I went outside.

Tink, hope you're in the sky, almost landing in MCO soon. Have fun in the parks today!

Schumi, I am heat lover, and do like being in the AC when too hot. So happy you're in your RPR room, and enjoying the view. Park fun sounds like a plan, for some of today. Will be waiting to read where else you have traveled.

And Good Morning to Dix too. Always nice when you can take a day off, when not feeling well. Then there me, I've decided, after that bonus 4 day week-end, earlier this month, it's time for another 3 day one. Hope all is well with you. and your stomach feeling back to normal. And hey, when not feeling well, nice to binge watch, when you haven't had the time to.

    Thanks @Lynne G, it is feeling better, also, everyone always deserves another three day weekend.

    On another note, apparently, I'll need to generate a new graphic for my signature. As tinypic.com apparently is going out and I no longer have the image that I was using saved. Guess it gives me an excuse to use newer photos of mine and doing some editing again.

    :wave2: Popping in for a quick hi!

    It seems peeps are getting excited to get packing and head out for Orlando :goodvibes :banana: I know I would be too

    Tink...I hope you had a great flight and are enjoying the heat and humidty.

    Sue and Cros...now is the fun part...packing and getting ready. I hope that red eye doesn't wear you out too bad. I did that one year, it was manageable. I would rather a direct flight ( as I'm already remote and already don't have a direct flight...it is always a milk run and a full day of travel ) You can do it!!! Cros...those travel sleep items sound interesting. I sure do hope they help

    Charade...I'm sorry your caught between a client and therapist. I hope for the client, she gets what she needs from the therapist. I'm very sorry to hear about your minister. News like that is very upsetting.

    Carole...I hope your enjoying the heat!!!!!! I keep checking the weather there as it is cold, rainy and just plain dreary outside. I know my soul could use some good heat and bright sunlight. I can't wait to hear all about your trip and see the foodie pictures!!!!

    Well...back seems a little better today. I think an evening with a nice hot bath then with the remote in my hand will be on the agenda tonight. Supper is going to be using up the left over baked ham from Sunday night...and turn it into a corn bacon/ham chowder. It is a family favorite...and with all this cold windy rainy weather we have had..,it will taste so yummy.

    I was watching some youtube videos of the HHM. Ummmmmm I don't know if I could do some of those houses. The ghost buster one seems great and stranger things looks interesting too. There was one...I don't think I could have done that one. NOt without me closing my eyes and someone pulling me through it :lmao:I'm a huge scardy cat!!!! Honestly, I don't watch too many movies or shows that have that stuff in them. They are just too crushing on my soul. I don't know how else to describe it...but I'm a very energy sensitive person. so movies like that are just too much for my body/soul to take. But I know my family...would LOVE it!!!!!!!!! I would be doing other things instead of that if we ever went!!
    I hope all the other peeps have a good day. So far it is slower today...so thinking more youtube and paper shredding for me today

    @tink1957 I just did the biggest dreamy sigh when looking at those photos. Looks like paradise to me. Glad you're relaxing and having a little bit of eats. It'll be interesting how Hagrid's is doing right now. It's afternoon time and from what I see on the radar things should be clear for the day.

    Love the gif of young Harry waving on the train.

    Evening Lynne. We were supposed to be 95 here today and we hit 97.....LOL..Orlando was not even that hot....won’t complain I need to prep for the heat at HHN.

    Good evening everyone. Today was a better day. The therapist and her client have made up. There’s was some miscommunication between the two, and I was also unaware that the therapist was dealing with some family issues too. I wish she had just called me and asked me to take care off the scheduling. That’s what they pay me for.

    Sunday was the annual church picnic but due to weather we had it in the hall. There was a dessert competition. Let me preface by saying, I rarely bake. So at 6:00 am Sunday morning I’m googling coffee cake, what I decided to do. Found a reasonable recipe and baked it. Never made, no idea how it would taste but I brought it in. It won, lol. Those who know me thought it was hilarious. So did I. But I must admit, it was yummy.
    Congrats on the cake. I like to bake, but some of my best desserts don;t require any baking at all.

    I am doing everything that I can to make sure we can at least get a few hours of sleep on the plane this time
    I hope you are able to get some sleep. I am a nervous flyer, and never sleep on planes.

    We have had snow as early as mid October, but that's not as usual.
    Yikes! Too soon. I think the earliest I have seen snow here is December.

    As for me I may have taken a sick day yesterday. Stomach wasn't up to snuff. I think I could power through, but decided to just take a load off and take it a day off for once instead of powering through
    Thanks @Lynne G, it is feeling better, also, everyone always deserves another three day weekend.
    Glad you are feeling better. Sometimes you just need a day off.

    On another note, apparently, I'll need to generate a new graphic for my signature. As tinypic.com apparently is going out and I no longer have the image that I was using saved. Guess it gives me an excuse to use newer photos of mine and doing some editing again.
    I was really annoyed when I heard Tiny Pic was closing. I had so many pictures stored there.

    I was watching some youtube videos of the HHM. Ummmmmm I don't know if I could do some of those houses. The ghost buster one seems great and stranger things looks interesting too. There was one...I don't think I could have done that one. NOt without me closing my eyes and someone pulling me through it :lmao:I'm a huge scardy cat!!!! Honestly, I don't watch too many movies or shows that have that stuff in them.
    I can’t do haunted houses either. I love suspense, but I can’t stand being scared. I really hate having things jump out at me or people sneak up on me.

    Great picture. Hope you have a great trip.

    Dh just turned on a program about classic Universal monsters. I think I can handle watching this.

    Well we're flying out Friday the 13th. It's a full moon and @schumigirl s birthday. Happy Birthday Carole! Mine is Monday the 16th. We check in to RPR on the 14th. We will drop SquirlGurl off with a friend Thursday. She has raised baby bunnies so she'll be in good hands. She'll be weaned soon and we will turn her loose.

    Mac thanks. Hope I do too. Went to essential oil place today and got an oil mix called Tranquility. It’s got lavender, valerian and other oils in it supposed to be good for making you sleepy. Hope the person next to me isn’t scent sensitive cause I plan on drowning myself in it, lol. Not really, but I’m sure person next to me will smell something. I think lavender smells nice.

    Crostofer hope it works for you! I would think the extra leg room seats would be more comfy and give you more room. At least the seat in front of you won’t be hitting your knees! It’s criminal how they jam you in those planes.
    I can’t sleep with head down on tray. My sinuses would get all stuffed up.
    I’m bringing a memory foam neck pillow, and my Disney fleece blanket! And my fuzzy socks if I can find them.

    Lynne omg that dog pic had me laughing! I wouldn’t go so far as say I’m a baker, lol! But I’m glad everyone enjoyed the cake.
    Boo for no buttons. Ugh.

    Schumi glad move went well. At HRH we have pool view and requested upper floor with theme park view. Hope we get a nice view. Hope we get to meet this time around. Last time we were leaving as you were arriving!

    Robo yup! My massage therapist is what keeps me together lol. She also does this type of therapy where she moves your back with slow movements while I’m sitting up to put it back in alignment. I can’t remember what it’s called, and was doubtful when she was doing it that it would do anything but wow, it sure did.
    I wonder what she’ll say after she sees me after a spin or 2 on rip Rocket and Hulk :rolleyes:

    Disxuni hope you’re feeling better.

    Pumpkin, I’m like you. I think I’m the only one that’s going to be there during HHN and not going to it. I’m also a huge chicken! Couldn’t take it. I also can’t watch scary movies or read scary books. I’d have nightmares for years.
    Hope your back is feeling better.

    Tink, love, love, love the pics!

    Charade glad things at work improved. Good to know Pumpkin & I aren’t alone in the scaredy-cat club!



    Well we're flying out Friday the 13th. It's a full moon and @schumigirl s birthday. Happy Birthday Carole! Mine is Monday the 16th. We check in to RPR on the 14th. We will drop SquirlGurl off with a friend Thursday. She has raised baby bunnies so she'll be in good hands. She'll be weaned soon and we will turn her loose.
    Oh no! It’s a full moon too :scared: Yikes. Isn’t it being Friday the 13th enough? And that’s my haircut day eek. Well I don’t know what to say about you flying that day!!!
    Awww, we need more baby squirrel pics! Will she know how to be a squirrel when you turn her loose? Maybe she’ll just hang around by the house!
    We have a couple of squirrels that come around. They like to raid the bird feeder, now they’re enjoying the apples off the tree! I saw one running off with an apple in his mouth. Looked so funny.
    I’ll be arriving at HRH on your birthday! Happy birthday :bday:in advance, cause on the 16th I’ll probable too jet lagged to remember, taking the red eye from west coast.


    Schumi I didn’t miss wishing you a Happy Birthday I hope.

    Keishashadow how is your son doing?

    Thanks for the congrats on winning 1st Prize. My friends and family are just having too much fun over this lol. One of my friends phoned last night asking to speak with the Baking Queen!

    Today I picked up older daughter from work and went for lunch. Then I went to the mall and did errands. I got my essential sleepy time oil, and found a very thin waist pack, or fanny pack...what ever they’re called at Minsu. It’s a Japanese store at the mall and they have all sorts of handy things. I don’t care for fanny packs so much, but this is very thin, just big enough to fit iPhone and some money or chapstick in. It’s stretchy. And thin enough to wear under tee. Without showing. For the times I don’t want to deal with lockers at Universal.

    Tomorrow I’ll look thru the things I put out to pack and add or delete as needed. Still haven’t got the bathing suits out, or shoes. Toiletries....so much to do.

    And, it's a Wednesday. Yay! And, yes, hello camel: 434938, Ah, he's here to remind all the homies, that it's the middle of the week, that all of us, get to get over this hump of a day, and cheer, Friday will be here in 2 more days. See there will be a full moon out, Squirlz will also be in the air, flying to some fun, and it will be Schumi's birthday, no less. So get happy, lots of happy stuff happening on Friday. With that, to ensure Keisha knows what day it is: 434940 - oh indeed. Friday can not come fast enough, a lazy start for me that day, I hope.

    Pumpkin, glad you had a slower day, to view videos and paper shred. Hope you are feeling well, and will have another relaxing day.

    Tink, woot! Drinks, a lush looking lunch, and a sleeping boy. Awesome start to your trip, and thanks for posting those great pictures. Happy to hear, no issues, and enjoying CB.

    Charade, glad to hear they worked it out, and that client will once again be happy to talk to that therapist, and hope whatever issues the therapist has, has worked them out too. Yeah, I am not a fan of scary, but I can deal with it for one night, and I've had fun with the group I have done HHN with before. So, will be enjoying HHN for one night again next month. The rest of the time I'm there, I don't do HHN. There's lots of other things to do, including Islands is open for three or four hours after the Studios close. Hope all is well, and hope B is enjoying college life. Little one certainly is.

    Robo, yep, hot is usually when we are there, but I so enjoy a warm night. No need to change clothes, from shorts and a t shirt. Hope it does cool down for you though, we have been in the 80's, but it's been oh so muggy. That will change, as rain is predicted to end the week, starting tomorrow.

    Sue, hope the packing goes better, and you're ready for some fun. When we bake, my Dsis and I compete for who's the Betty Crocker or Martha Stewart. Most of the time, it's her. LOL

    Squirlz, nice you have someone to take care of the squirrel, and will release her soon. And safe travels on Friday. With a full moon, you can see all, and I don't mind flying out on a Friday the 13th, or a full moon seen during my flight. Either way, a woot! As you'll be having extra fun, starting this week-end.

    Schumi, hope you are enjoying RPR, staying cool in that heat, and having a fabulous time.

    Mac, hope you are doing well, and did your Taco Bell run. Oddly, I had to use up my coupons at a store where we pass a Taco Bell. So did stop at a Taco Bell last night. Seems older one likes one of the menu items that will be no more by the end of this week-end, so tacos for us, along with some other stuff. And since I could not eat all in my meal, left overs that older one claimed. He was hoping DH did not eat it when DH came home late last night, and was looking for food. Had made him food, when I got home, before him, as I know, he's always looking for left overs on his late night's arrival.

    And hope Keisha's son is done his surgery, and it went well, and he is healing nicely.

    With that, hope each and every homie will have a wonderful, beautiful day. Good Morning! Happy Wednesday.

    :coffee:I so need tea. Oooh, a light orange colored horizon. Another day of clouds and sun. And yes, I do have my sunglasses ready, as well as the sweater. Almost too cool inside, already. But no complaining here. Tea and sweater. Yep, and it's a Wednesday. ::yes::

    Good morning to everyone! Hope everyone has a good Wednesday, as @Lynne G said, wish Friday would come sooner. At least this week doesn't feel as long as last week, or at least to me.

    @Robo56 Feeling better. Thanks! I'm trying my best to keep with the HP theme when I post gifs.

    @Charade67 I thought on the website it states until a certain date I believe you can still log in and save your photos? I don't know how if you still have your log-in info though.

    @Sue M Thanks for the thought! Better double and triple check that packing! I'm usually not a good noodle when it comes to packing personally and do everything at the last minute.

    @schumigirl Happy Early Birthday in case I forget! Friday the 13th for a birthday this year. Very cool!

    Always nice to see buckeev zip in here.

    He makes his presence known and then he zaps back out.

    This must mean he is in trip planning mode again.....


    Mr Mac snored for 6.5 hours off and on last night.
    Each time when I would hear he was roaring, I got out of bed.
    It is like living next door to the train tracks.....


    Is everyone that has trips planned for the rest of this month and year getting excited!!
    Time seems to drag when you are months out from a trip and then it's that big rush when you are a week away from going.

    Each trip I tell myself start early to pack.
    Each year I pack the night before I leave.

    Squirlz, happy flights for you, your number comes up next to go South!

    :wave2: Good Morning, Dix, Buckeev, Sue and Mac. Hope you all are doing well.

    Nice of Sue to help out, and yep, packing lady she is. Safe travels to you.

    Mac, Taco Bell run, yesterday?

    And yep, Dix, I'm a last minute packer too. I generally have an idea of what I am packing, but always do the actual packing not much before I leave.

    Which reminds me, need to check the rental car prices again. Started out high, then finally went down to yeah better rate, now even higher than I started. Hoping they fall even lower than I have, before I leave. Flights, down not much different, back, much higher, as they cut my direct flight, and now have no direct flights after a mid afternoon one. Boo SW, and us, not being a hub for it. No, for a 2 and 1/2 or so hour flight to any of the FL airports SW services, I am not stopping anywhere when I want to fly there.

    Oh hello sunshine, well, not full bright sunshine, I'm almost ready for my lunchtime walk.

    I got an email from Delta this morning about arriving 2 hours before the flight.

    ???

    This was a generic email going out to their travelers .

    It stated expecting long check in lines and backups or something like that.
    I glanced at it quickly twice and thought, time to phone them to see if my dates are in that alert.
    I'm 18 days out from leaving.
