argggh so nice!

damn you donald, for the teasing! ;)
 
I went to the doctor because I've been super congested for weeks and thought I had a stubborn sinus infection. I went in, and he listens to me and says, "Well, the good news is it's not pneumonia..." 😨 We're talking about this as being in the realm of possibility? Bronchitis, he says. Antibiotic and twice a day nebulizer treatments for me for the next week. :grumpy: And I thought it was just a sinus infection...
On the good side, you caught it on time.. right?
Could be worse...

And yikes, you really have bad luck on healthwise!
 
We never did the baby food thing; we just fed her soft foods off our dinner plate. It was good that we didn't because we would have run out of baby food too quickly. My daughter was and is a big eater. We've always joked that she's a trash panda (raccoon) because she'll rummage through any bag she finds (even strangers bags) to find snacks.

Even at the fireworks show at Magic Kingdom on Christmas, she found a family and made friends with them and proceeded to ask them for food :cautious::cautious:
Can you imagine if she bump'd into Tuvalu the dryer lint theif and she tried to take a hunk of your DD food? :eek:

Yup. I had bronchitis last February. So almost a year ago. Win I cannot.

The thing is, I'm realizing the older I get, the more I'm turning into my parents. My dad does not believe in getting sick and will not go to the doctor until he is completely miserable. I used to think I wasn't as bad, and I'm not...with managing my asthma, migraines, and depression. But when I'm sick, it seems I remain in denial about it until I'm really sick, and then go, "Yeah, maybe the doctor would be a good idea..." 'Cause I tried to treat this with over the counter meds and my sinus rinse, and I continued as normal. Heck, I was working out until two days ago. It wasn't until yesterday when I was so tired that I went to bed early and then flat out slept through three alarms and my mom woke me up for work that I was like, "Yeah, better go to the doctor..."

Great, turning into my father. Someday, I'll be sitting in an armchair, watching a remake of NCIS, falling asleep, and then half waking up and complaining that the actor on there is not the real Agent Gibbs. I can see it now...:hilarious:
 
More and more of the long term resturants and stands have closed, some of them more unexpectedly than others throughout the WDW Property and most of them haven't been quick though a few were only a few days. I've been wondering given the age of many of these places updates might be required code wise 'cause they are rapidly going through many of these establishments.
And if it is infrastructure then why not go ahead and just rehab the entire place and update while your at it. That is where my mind is leaning anyhow, not like Disney is actually going to post that on there blog.

Kringla actually comes at a good time. Arts Festival Kiosks are up and running and will immediately be followed by 3 months of Flower and Garden Kiosks. I actually love more of the food offerings for F&G over F&Wine. Plus it isn't normally near as hot and humid and makes kiosk hopping better (unless @MinnieM123 ) is in the House of the Mouse then all bets are off.
I like both Food and Wine and Flower and Garden offerings. I might lean more towards F&G too. I can't wait until the new menus for this year come out and I can start planning our plan of attack!:)[/QUOTE]

I don't know how these posts of ours got scrambled together but yes! I agree!

Always love reading the Disney Food Blog after they taste around the kiosks. Then I can always say ewe ewe ewe and cross it off or maybe or must do each kiosk. For some reason my son of yesteryear the most picky of all is now the most adventuresome. Go figure!
 
Last trip $100 round trip for the 4 of us:D
Yep. But nobody would love me if you stuff me in a car for 24 hours to get to WDW, it likely would not be pretty. Needing at least 2 travels days out of vacations time likely 4 cause 24 hours on the road is rough and gets dangerous, hotels one each way, our tolls and gas. 2 hours for tsa and 2.5 hours in air and I'm there.

And boy am I happy TSA and Disney got on the same page and leaving 4 hours before your flight has gone bye bye. Amen. That was rediculous our last trip. We had a long drawn out meal at Ruby's to kill time. Crazy even with well over an hour to clear TSA.
 
$75 won't even get us off our island.
Our airfare generally is $200-$350 round trip/each. These are fluky airfares when dates and times have a lot of wiggle room. This weekend it would have by chance worked for Thursday night 'till Monday evening. We didn't wind up doing it and let it go. Since we have normally travel led with CM discounts which are not as grand as they once were these APs are just way too tempting at this point in my life. It didn't help that our December Trip was so freak'n cold even though we had a lot of fun cold is cold.
 
Yup, Riley is big celebrity here now! :D
Dang she is almost as cute as Fiona the Hippo.

The University that my DD graduated from trains service dogs, it is done by student volunteer organization. This winter during student holiday break we saw one of the puppies about the same age as Riley walking Woodfield Mall crowded beyond...the pup was dong a very good job with the student. The Pups in training always go home with a student for all breaks they are not left behind.

She was training him with tiny treats and I liked to see how the pup was looking up to her face to look for direction. That is how I've trained all my Pups, to pay attention to me when out on a lead. Until SQUIRREL anyhow.

 
Interested in hearing your review! Seems either people are loving or hating.
Just got back..

Just to make a follow up:

  • The movie moves pretty slow, slower than most movies.
  • This is the most "realistic" movie of Del Toro. As in not that many magical stuff (like Hell boy or Pan's Labyrinth)
  • Most people hate it because it might be "boring" at first. others hate it because it goes from very cute stuff to very violent. Portraying very racist and violent individuals, also the duplicity of Agents right in the height of the cold war. And also they portray the "military" and "agents" like very bad guys whose job doesn't is against what the country supposedly was to be for (aka honesty, courage, justice, etc..). Power bias of the authorities against minorities, groups, etc...
  • Features also the very strong anti lgbt world of the 60's and segregate stuff.
  • The movie is pretty much a love history with a thriller on the side and a dash of fantasy.
  • There is a plot twist that was hinted from the starting parts.
  • The movie in our theatre was heavily censored (b15 vs R rated) so a lot of parts were removed (including more violent scenes were reduced, racist and even just plain "naughty" stuff was removed completely).
  • Full nudity in some scenes.

Just to make it simple...
Its a scifi-fantasy es-que film about love, acceptance and empathy-sympathy. No surprise every of my gal friends love it. I liked it.. a bit slower than expected but I was hooked.

I'd likely enjoy the more censored version. Sometimes I can do without seeing 'everything.' I can use my imagination just fine I do't actually need to see someone shot, dying, dead...I can grasp without gore...same with the other things you mentioned.
I was very young in the 60's so just about everything went over my head in the world of adults back then. Still you spoke to the 60's "
  • Features also the very strong anti lgbt world of the 60's and segregate stuff."
Oddly even during the 70's where I am from there wasn't anti lgbt overtly happening around me. They were all in the closet and not even thinking of coming out. I had a very good friend that I knew...yet we never spoke to it. That is just how it was back her then or at least where I was from which back then was a larger community than I moved to. Now the Race and segregation issues of then were impossible to miss back then and even today from what I am hearing in the news today. It all kinda boggles my mind.
