So they are no longer living in alabama? Peninsula area?

Well, the early bird is reporting in, and still has the light on. Dark and ooh, windshield wipers on, snow shower. Um, that's not the kind of shower I was wanting this morning. Quick enough commute, and drat, the new building is having issues, and ack, waited for the doors to open. They have been broken intermittenly. And yeah, many of us are early birds. So grumpy people standing outside in the blowing snow. Will be nice when they make it right for all, no matter when arriving.

And yeah, sweater on, tea is on the second cup, and will be refilled many a time before the day is done. Seems my idea of a normal indoor temp is not what I get. Highly thinking of getting one of those personal heaters, that blows hot air at ya. Something to look for this week-end, when we take a break from all the baking.

Yeah, I haven't seen PC post lately, and he fell off the radar for quite awhile now. Quite a few have been lost for some time now, but was nice to see Bobbie come back, and enjoyed hearing how life has been for her, and her family.

Ooh, and so many are enjoying the parks this week. But in case Keisha pops in here, yes, Hump Day is here. The day of the week, that Wednesay says, get over this middle hump of a day, and well, you are half way to Friday, and the week-end. YAY!

456516 yes camel, so glad it is a Wednesday. So, 456517

Good Morning! :wave2:

Woot...

Hope all homies staying warm, especially our friends in Florida now!

You would think a new building would have better temperature control
The gal is gonna float away with all that tea she is drinking

    Another potential Floridian @bobbie68. Haven't seen in awhile. Hope things get to slow down a little soon so you can stop to smell the roses every once in awhile. At this point, I stay for the fact it's near the parks and I have friends here. If it weren't for that I'd probably be somewhere else as I prefer cooler weather. I heard San Francisco is constantly cool all around. Other than it being insanely hot, which you don't seem to mind, it's pretty good here, except the hurricane drama.

    Thanks for the tip @tinydancer09 about the phone. We should definitely be able to meet sometime in the parks, especially if you plan to eventually come frequently in the future. I haven't caught a sunrise at the parks either, except on the way there perhaps.

    Perhaps I'll try those one day @macraven. I typically just stick to bean burritos and nachos and cheese. I'm basic like that.

    Also, it's humpity hump day like @Lynne G said! Half way through the week.

    This weekend going to be off to Port Canaveral again, but this time to see one of my good friends getting hitched on a cruise ship before having to jumping off before it takes off, then it's driving back home. My other friend who will be MOH will be exhausted that day. She says she has to get up to get ready starting at 3, or 4 in the AM. Whew. However, for me, I'll probably secretly be awake around then anyway even though I don't have to show til later.

    I hope everyone stays cozy today.

    He had moved to Dothan from Panama City last I heard from him. Never heard from him again. I think he and I both disappeared around the same time. Even if he's still in Dothan I assume he's glad he's not in PC or PCB! Dothan didn't get much from Michael.


    @tinydancer09 no, we rode it in September the first time. It said 60 minute wait then and we were on in 3 twice.
    Huh. You must be a lucky clover then!

    Greetings everyone. Unusually busy and stressful days at work. Today I discovered that we have been billing the wrong insurance company for a client ALL YEAR LONG. The client neglected to tell us that his insurance changed in January and his therapist (who I rarely ever see) did not ask for his card back in January. We still should have caught it when the insurance company rejected the claims. The person who handles accounts receivable was just entering "patient responsibility" into his record completely ignoring the note on the statement that the claim date was after the insurance was terminated. Grrr!!!! Maybe this will finally convince my boss to let me handle AR instead of her husband.

    On a lighter note, my online Christmas orders are starting to trickle in. The first package to arrive was the stuff I bought for Caspian. He's getting a couple of new scratchers and some catnip toys.

    We arrived to RPR yesterday afternoon, saw @schumigirl and Tom as soon as we passed by the Club lounge. Had a great 1st day in IOA. Hagrids was showing a 1 hour wait so we went in optimistically. It took about 50 minutes. We saw a squirrel.
    Cure squirrel. I'm looking forward to riding Hagrid's wh I make it back.

    Charade, little one also goes back on the 12th of January, and last finals are on December 17th.
    B seems to have a really long winter break. I'm wondering what other schools are like.

    Driving home a car was going down the Main Street with no lights on, and it’s a dark rainy night. Ugh. How do people not know? A dark dashboard would be the first clue.
    They know, they just don't care. We have about a 10 minute drive to church. It was raining on Sunday and we counted over 30 cars with no lights on.

    I think I am quickly getting used to the parks already. After three weekends in a row of going once a week, as of today I woke up with my feet hurting a little, but my legs didn't feel sore, or stiff at all. Which was a surprise, especially since the first two times I stuck with one park, not going back and forth like I did yesterday. However, I might not be so lucky next time as I do not think I'll be going next week, so that might throw off my progress.
    This sounds like a good exercise program. A friends mom used to walk Animal Kingdom almost every day for exercise. She was there so often that most of the cast members knew her by name.

    Anyone want to send me their kid for a week so I can learn how to really use the new iPhone?
    I swear this is the last time I upgrade to a new phone
    B could probably help you. I might be able to help you. I have the XS Max.


    I'd send ya little one, if I could Mac. She went from a 7 to an Xs, without issue. I still am not used to her not having a home button.
    You'd be surprised at how easily you get used to not having the home button. There is a way to create on on the screen. My boss did it to her phone, but I find it to be annoying.

    Jake‘s menu has changed.......not really a fan, but few old favourites are still there......
    Please tell me they still have the flatbread.

    I'm going to have to start my baking soon. Instead of giving gifts to friends, I m make trays of baked goods for many people and work colleagues. I send a big tray to the hubby's work as well, and bring one to my work here.
    Oooh, you are a nice friend and employee. I send cookies to my office too, but I don't bake them myself.

    Liv is finishing up her first semester on line this week. She managed to get all A's and is doing well with it
    Hi Bobbi. Good to hear from you. Congrats to Liv on her grades.

    Now I really want to go back to Disney for Christmas. One of my Facebook friends posted pictures the other day. I was surprised by how cold it looked there.


    I need to get back to doing some cleaning. Dh has invited his graduate students over for dinner tomorrow.

    Lynne, my office was always cold in winter and hot in warmer months. We all had space heaters! And small USB desk fans.

    Charade never a dull moment in your office! I just did an Amazon order for oldest daughter. New wallet and shoe laces that have magnetic closure. They will be in her stocking (laces). Didn’t think of looking for dog toys.

    Keishashadow nice pics. My friend is also at wdw now and sent me pics of Living the Land. She says there’s even more decorations than when we were there 2 yrs ago.
    We enjoyed Coral Reef. Food was good and we had a table in front of the tank by where the turtle liked to hang out. Only problem was a family who were sitting away from the tank kept letting their kids go to the tank next to our table and all evening they were running back and forth. It got annoying.

    This morning did my volunteer morning at the church bagging bread for the food bank. Then met up with a work friend. She retired 6 mos before me! As we were leaving Starbucks on the other side of the strip mall there were fire trucks and ambulance. Apparently someone drove up onto the sidewalk and hit the store. After leaving my friend I walked over to check out a new store called The Refillery. It’s a great idea. They carry dish soaps, hand, laundry soaps. Cleaners, hair products, Deo, etc. You can either buy their products in a bottle then refill or just bring your own bottles. And their products don’t contain the bad chemicals like phosphate etc. Sounded good. When my dawn dish soap runs out I think I’ll bring bottle and try theirs. I bought the baby shampoo for my good friends daughter who has an 8mo old. I’ll add it to my Christmas gift for the baby. My daughter went to school with her from pre school on.

    Picked up dog food on the way home.

    The day started out with the usual drizzle and grey skies. By afternoon the sun made a partial appearance. Hopefully we’ll see the sun for a day or two.

    I ordered from Chewy.com. Caspian is already sniffing around the box like he knows it's for him.

    Ooh those hot pepper flakes I mixed with the chicken and green peppers made my nose run. Perfectly hot, rounded out with some chicken gravy and mashed. Had to use up the milk, and potatoes that had been sitting.

    Rainy night. Was going to go out, but decided to do my errands on the way home tomorrow.

    Yay, Charade getting gifts in. Yep, we are baking this weekend, will be gifts to offices, family and friends. We only keep a small bag for us to snack on. I won’t bake the rest of the season. We do some candy making and chocolate covered pretzels too. Thinking I will do fudge this year too. My dad used to make a great peanut butter fudge, so thinking of trying the recipe he had, and of course chocolate.

    Just chilling with a blanket on.

    Nice you helped with the food bank, Sue. Yeah, in the news yesterday, a car hit the guardrail, went airborne, and landed in the second floor of a house. And yep, my haircut place had a car crash into the front of it, a couple of years ago. Thankfully, no one was hurt in either crash. Too fast drivers.

    Have a nice night, all, and enjoy seeing the pictures from Keisha. Looks like fun and good food. Never ate at the Coral Reef. Seems the hit or miss reviews, and menu never appealed to us. Not sure when, if ever kids want to do Disney over the holidays. We will be cruising this coming year, and the year after that. I do enjoy all the Christmas 🎄 decor in all the parks. And yep, enjoy all the overlays, holiday food items, and special shows.

    ooh Charade, I always hear the Chewy commercials, when watching the tube. No need to use them, now.

    Ah, time to go to a different room. Too much yapping from older one and his online friends and their shooting games. Older one is so happy with the larger tv.

    Leaving the light on.

    Light still on, for those early birds. Seems the rain last night, with the temps below freezing in the overnight, my car was a popsicle this morning. Yeah, scrape that ice off the car windows, after ooh, tug to open the car door. But clear and windy outside, wind chills in the 20's as I commuted. Hey, at least the flag is waving nicely in the wind, and I was in my high level heat seat, and 70 degree inside temps. Knew better, and long sleeve blouse, and matching sweater already on. thankfully, just a bit cool inside, with my hands and face feeling the coolest. Wore a hat, as that wind was biting already.

    So, with this cooler weather, drink up today, as it's a Thirsty Thursday.
    456677 And that goes to all the homies. Then there's Mac, and Patty: 456678 Ha Ha.

    Then there's those of us, who say,

    456679 ::yes:: Like Schumi ?o_O :rotfl:


    So, enjoy this Thursday, and yay, that means tomorrow is a Friday. And, after having a four day week-end last week-end, well, certainly, I need a 3 day one. Gotta have a day to get the missing baking supplies, and start the baking or candy on Friday. And woot! Little one wants to help, and older one said he'd do some baking too. Hello bakers! Yep, that will be us.

    Okay, time for tea. And ooh. lovely, a piece of lemon pound cake still left from yesterday's random food items that were brought in to share by a coworker. Perfect with a cup of tea.

    Good Morning homies! Sun out today. And yes, it will not make it warm. And yes, I did bring my sunglasses.

    @Charade67 If I actually lived in Orlando I probably would do something along the lines of that. It would definitely be a more entertaining way to walk a few miles.

    I do not have anything to celebrate Thirsty Thursday so I guess I'll be having water. I think I haven't drank since the cruise... But do not quote me on that. :laughing: I think that's true, but if I had one glass in between then and now I wouldn't remember. I drink so rarely.

    I hope everyone has a good day! The holidays keep getting closer! Those of you up north keep trying to stay warm. Those in the parks hope you're covered a little bit. The high is 69, or 70 there I think so t-shirt weather for me, but not for some Floridians. It was cool this morning when I took out the trash though.

    Hello everyone, quick stop in!! it's colder here then I would like. The snow should be out of our forecast for awhile, I hope.

    It has been a busy week making appointments, December and June seem to be when they are all scheduled.

    Thank you Mac, Lynne, Charade, Sue, Disxuni and Charade it was nice to feel welcomed home.:goodvibes

    The teens are off for the next four days, which never happens. We are going to look to spend some time with them. I would like to start putting up the tree. Now that we have an artificial one it is a little easier and I leave the bottom cat friendly from ornamnets. :rotfl2:

    The teens friends will sleep over tomorrow night since we are leaving early Saturday morning for NJ. It makes it easy.

    Not sure what dinner is tonight.

    Off to get teens and phone calls. Have a great day!!

    Quick fly by from me. I'm taking a short break from frantically cleaning. Dh has invited his graduate students over for dinner tonight. I didn't get much sleep last night, so I am exhausted. Now I have to be peopley (the iPad doesn't like that word) for a few hours. I need a nap.
