Tomorrow we head to Discovery Cove for the day!
Happy Birthday Patty. I hope you had a wonderful day...but being on holidays in Orlando...I would say it was probably pretty good lol :laughing: I hope that you have a great day at Discovery Cove. Some say I hope to get to visit there and experience that.
In the news of the annoying, on Saturday we noticed 2 big scratches on the passenger side door of dh’s car. It looked like someone had keyed his car, except the scratches were at the bottom of the door.
Charade...that's horrible. People are just sad pathetic beings when they are just petty and do stupid little things like that. Also about the puppy that a co- worker brought into your work. That would make my day at work too!!! Who doesn't love a little puppy!!!!!!!!
Ah, another warm day, but not as humid, per radio weather guy, a nice, day, again seeing the temps rise to around 80, and a very sunny day.
Well...it sounds like it will be a more enjoyable temperature than you have had. Sometimes it can just be too hot and humid. That is not always easy to deal with for weeks at a time.
Trying to decide if we should go to St Augustine or New Smyrna Beach.......at NSB we can see manatees and dolphins in their natural habitat........beautiful........but......we also love St Augustine........or of course there’s a Gulf Coast beach too.........hmmmm.
Decisions...decisions lol what a wonderful choice of places to visit!!!!! I'm sure which ever you choose, you will have a wonderful time! I can't wait to read your trip report!
Off to visit a certain land today. Going to take a bit of a preview before I take my son next year.
Have Fun...any trip to those lands is great!!!!
Cleaning up loose ends here today, hair appt & grocery run for DS who is holding down the fort.
This part is just as fun as the trip it's self. The anticipation of the vacation!!!!! I love that just as much as the trip it's self

Had a great evening yesterday. Whipped up supper for all of us...then quickly exited and left the dishes for the boys to do and went to go see Downton Abby with a girl friend. We haven't had a chance to get together for a few months...so it was great to get together again. And we LOVED the movie. It is felt like they had not stopped filming the series and just continued on. And they left some stories open to maybe have another movie :rolleyes1 HOnestly...I will probably go to watch it again. I loved the series and have watched it several times over and it's one of those I won't tire of watching. I find something new to notice or giggle at each time I watch it. For me...it's a classic.

Well...this paperwork is NOT getting worked on while I'm here...so signing off for now...
Have a great day everyone :wave2:

Good afternoon. Slow day at work today. I spent most of the day reorganizing the the therapist’s inboxes and other parts of the office.
Came home to a very nice surprise. We received a nice refund check from the state of Virginia. Always nice to receive unexpected money.

Trying to decide if we should go to St Augustine or New Smyrna Beach.......at NSB we can see manatees and dolphins in their natural habitat......
Ooh, tough decision. I have never been to either place. I would love to see St. Augustine, but it would be cool to see the manatees and dolphins too.

Sorry to hear about DH's car. Horrible about how people do such senseless damage!
Thanks. We have no idea when it happened. It seems weird that someone would key the door so low though.

If you ride Smuggler’s Run I hope you do better on the Falcon that I did.

Charade sorry to hear about your hubby’s car. People can be to mean.

Thanks y’all. I think dh will be taking it to a body shop on Thursday.


Wondering what to do with the rest of the evening. I don’t know what to do with myself now that I’m not taking B to dance and music lessons in the afternoons. I think I need to fins a hobby.

Thanks for the Birthday wishes!! :) Had a great day at Discovery Cove. So much to do even without having a dolphin swim! When you're planning a trip, check out the website for any specials. We've found some great deals!

Yay! Let the kids do the dishes once in a while!
Heard the movie is fabulous! Haven't watched the series myself though so I might get lost seeing the movie.

Unexpected money is amazing! Use it for something fun!!:)

Relaxing in the HRH lounge! Tired after being at Discovery Cove all day today. Early night I think! Tomorrow Troy arrives!! :cool1:

    Cool and clear 58 degree start to this Wednesday. Quick enough commute. And oh my, why are all those cars out at this hour. LOL
    For whatever reason (including our teleworking workers have to come in on a Tuesday (when lots of meetings are held) or a Wednesday (not much going on)) there is always the most cars on the road on a Wednesday. Then there's easy parking Fridays and generally Mondays, particularly starting this time of year. Three day week-ends are common in the summer, and around the Fall and Winter holidays. Me, I try every other week. :)

    And weather guy on the radio said, wall to wall sun today, and a nice afternoon, where we will see 80 degrees. I'd say a perfect Fall day.

    However, so all will know it is a Wednesday, and no we haven't had a Wendy post in awhile (Hello Agavegirl, hope you are doing well), the camel reminder is here:

    438826 and that goes to every homie. Happy Wednesday! Good Morning!

    And remember:
    438828 and 438829 - so let's get over the hump of this day, and the week-end will be here soon enough.

    And Keisha,

    438830 ::yes:: :laughing:

    I so need tea now. And looking forward to some coffee and chatting with Patty this coming Monday.

    Later homies. Fabulous day for all of you, and hoping all are feeling fine.

    Popping on to say good morning to all the homies that are at home, having some fun in the sun, or going to be traveling soon and doing that last minute packing.

    Nothing much going on here. While it hasn't cooled down as much as I wish I'm debating on whether I want to go to Disney one day this weekend and spend a few hours in the AM before coming back home since it's been so long since I've gone. While I'm sure it will cool down more by the time my pass runs out at the of Oct, I miss it.

    Good morning! Well all good things must come to an end, and today is mine :-(. Fun trip. I haven’t been posting, mostly by the time I get back to my room soon after my head hits the pillow I’m gone!
    This morning taking it easy. I have a noon check out. After shower will pack the rest of my stuff, mostly only toiletries left to pack.

    So grateful I got to meet Patty & husband, Robo, and Monyklyn! We had a wonderful evening.

    Today I plan on going to the park for lunch and last rides. Must be back at HRH by 3:30 to change for flight and shuttle pickup is 4:20.
    Catch you on the flip-flop!

    Good Morning!!

    We didn't really get much summer here this year...so I'm crossing my fingers for a long fall season, but it's not looking promising right now. Today the wind is cold already and goes right through you and it feels like snow wind. Not nice warm breezes.
    Hope it is warmer today for you. I hope to hang on to summer as long as possible before it gets cold here.

    Cam, great score on that vacuum. We had to replace our hot water heater this Summer. Good thing my brothers are good with pipes. On a good thing, thought we bought the smallest, eh, 10 gallons more than our old one. Score for my longer hot shower. LOL
    Thanks! I am pretty happy with my deal too! Just wish I would of kept my receipt for the old one so I could claim the warranty. Oh well, lesson learned the hard way.

    In the news of the annoying, on Saturday we noticed 2 big scratches on the passenger side door of dh’s car. It looked like someone had keyed his car, except the scratches were at the bottom of the door.
    So sorry! That really stinks.

    That’s pretty hush how it is here too. I was looking at some of my Facebook pictures last night and came across one from last December when we had 9 inches of snow.
    We are always on the snow line and unfortunately we get the rain. Hoping this winter is snowy!

    It is felt like they had not stopped filming the series and just continued on. And they left some stories open to maybe have another movie :rolleyes1 HOnestly...I will probably go to watch it again. I loved the series and have watched it several times over and it's one of those I won't tire of watching. I find something new to notice or giggle at each time I watch it. For me...it's a classic.
    I love Downton Abbey. It really was a fantastically well written series. I am hoping to go see it this weekend. That show turned me onto Masterpiece with got me hooked on all kinds of British television series. Most of which I now watch on various streaming channels.

    @pattyw - Happy Belated Birthday. Sounds like you had a really fun day.

    @Sue M - Safe travels back home.

    @schumigirl - Hope you had a good day at the beach. Hopefully a little wine and good food will keep your cousin in check. Enjoy your day.



    Another day at work and not at Universal. Boo! Not much going on. I am reading "It" so that should take up some time. I'm not a big Steven King fan but I wanted to read the book before watching the movies. I bought the book shortly after the first movie came out but read half of it and put it down and didn't pick it back up until right before the second movie came out so maybe I will finish it before Christmas. :santa:

    DS is home sick with a cold. Too early in the school year for colds and absences.

    Have a great Wednesday.

    Dh took his car to the body shop today. The car looked like it had deep scratches. It even felt like scratches. The guy at the body shop said nope, just tar damage. He cleaned off the car and didn’t charge Dh anything. Now we know where to go if we ever actually need body work.

    I only slept about 2 hours last night, so I am going to take a nap. I’ll be back to post later.

    Thanks for the Birthday wishes!! :)

    Hope DS feels better soon! :)The start of school always seems to bring on sickness. I know my boys always had colds, tummy bugs, etc in September!

    That's great news, Charade!! I feel so much better that it wasn't a bad person who did that to your vehicle!

    Great day here! Another stunner in Orlando! Sun, low humidity and no rain in sight! We just relaxed by the pool, had lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe, enjoyed a complimentary Birthday drink at the Beach Club (hello lots of rum!) and now we're in the lounge. We'll pick Troy up later this evening!

    Safe travels to @Sue M ! We so enjoyed meeting up with you!! Thanks for taking time out of your vacation to spend time with us! :) Hope our vacay dates meet up again- either in Orlando or Deerfield Beach!

    food at finnegans decent and beer is cold. First HHN of season for us woot

    Looking good Mrs!!!

    Someone who shall remain nameless opened a certain box today.......lol......that certain person had a big smile on his face.......so, obviously I had to join in and share.......... :rotfl:



    Enjoying a lovely glass of red in the lounge right now.........and........

    Got our May flights rebooked with Virgin Atlantic........:cheer2: tried to ignore the price.......:scared1:

    Our other options were to fly indirect through Philly with American Airways.......er, maybe not........didn’t fancy a 19 hour flight home. So, we are flying direct, only way to go for us, and we still managed to get Premium seats again......I’m a happy bunny!!!!!

    HHN tonight again.......won’t be in long....just do a few houses and leave. Scare zones are nothing much to write home about......although Rob Zombie one and the Viking ones are fun!

    Have a great Wednesday evening........it is glorious here.......:wave2:

    Didn’t get the nap I wanted. About 30 minutes in my phone rang. It was one of those auto bot calls about my car warranty.

    Go for it.
    Good morning! Well all good things must come to an end, and today is mine :-(.
    Bummer. Hope you have a nice trip home.

    We are always on the snow line and unfortunately we get the rain. Hoping this winter is snowy!
    I don’t mind one or two days of snow, but that’s about it. I’m hoping for a mild winter.

    DS is home sick with a cold. Too early in the school year for colds and absences.
    Hope he feels better soon.

    That sounds lovely. A nice relaxing day.


    It’s only 9:30 but I am so sleepy. I think I may be going to bed soon.
