    Enjoying the cooler weather 'cause it'll be in the triple digits again down here soon enough.
    Today was warmer than it was supposed to be, that is two days in a row. I'm trying to get plants in the ground and I'm not use to the heat given I had the heat on in the house on Sunday.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

If CMs noticed then they would try to get my family to use a different entrance but we declined because it did not feel like. I was use to being in because of marching a whole season with it. The CMs were stock that I declined their offer.
    Actually that is the true sign from what my son has explained to me. Either the families that bring in their medical records to document the disability, most trying to explain they won't need it most of the time or the refusal or declining need to need special assistance. As explained to me the guest just discretely shows the CM the pass and they are just nonchalantly escorted through by CMs, trying not to draw attention. The only question ever asked being who is John Doe in the party. No more.

    It was Disney's fault that my DD got hurt at AKL, yet it wasn't the fault of those other guests in line that I felt we needed to go before them to experience the attraction, but a few CMs insisted and we did skip a few lines along the way.

    My DD (oh Karma) has not used her inhaler yet at college, a couple times she should have but it is getting better.
    Hers are all allergy based respiratory problems. Hope you are outgrowing some of it too.

Tried to seed the flower patch today but but the events of the day ended that. Hoping to finish the greens this week and move onto flower pots and annuals around green plants over the weekend. Then back to the veggie garden.

    I love seeing bright green outside. My huge tree in the back almost has leaves!

    Yay! gay days, fun fun!

    I've had experiences personally with the hospital in the recent past and personally known others and you are so right the way people are handled is so cavalier.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My DS oldest friend down the road just got a new job this week after being laid off for almost a year. I saw him leave for work, thinking they sent him home, hope they are compassionate.

    Me, I'm just nauseous. My way of dealing is to be angry at the dang health insurance companies that send them home from the hospital for a few days to see how it goes and wait for procedure at home. If he had been in the hospital, likely he would be with us. Anger, likely so preventable.

    I'm glad I never experienced that. I don't agree with public display of affection by anyone that goes beyond the casual kiss or hand holding. The young people are especially grotesque when they are in groups and I just want to say what you are doing is inappropriate in front of young children and should be done behind closed doors. Hands in the drawers and all hugged up. Its disgusting.

    I remember when we were there a cpl yrs back and we were at DHS bofore MK and my son says to me several hours into our visit. Hey Dad, why are there so many people here with the same shirts on. At that moment I took notice and it was like Ola Ray in Thriller and the dramatic scene music as she was surrounded by Michael. Anyways, I was like oh, um there here for a group day. uh. um he wasn't ready for an explanation nor was I ready for all that.

    Recently, like a few weeks ago, we were watching Reba, and there was a scene that was about being gay and I turned it and made a generic comment about giving somebody warning. My sons says what are you talking about. Is it because they are talking about being gay. I said what do you know about that. Well he correctly explained to my surprise and I just shut up. lol.
