    In retrospect, it is kind of funny! I mean, how often do you see someone using a turkey baster to get water out of a dish washer? LOL
    I got it clean, which I guess, was the goal anyway.

    Thanks, I'm sure it will be lots of fun - I just have to get there without being in contact with anyone after getting (I assume) a negative Covid test result! :)
    I am taking my own car, so it should be fine!

    If the Covid test comes back positive, well, then I am not going anywhere! LOL

    Crossing my fingers for a negative test, @TonkaToy!

    I wound up getting tested last week because the health department was running a mobile testing site out of my school's parking lot. It came back negative (yay!) within 48 hours (double yay!), which makes me feel a little bit better about starting face-to-face teaching in classes of 25+ this week.

    That's great! I am hoping to get the test back between 2 - 5 days, then I can get on the road within my planned time frame. :)

    @TonkaToy , sorry about your terrible experience with a dishwasher and hope your trip goes well! Stay safe! <3

    And to @slbrabham and others facing the threat of the storms, thinking of you and hoping the best. One hurricane is horrid enough to have to worry about two! I feel so much for everyone these days! <3

    For those who are wondering if their "real pants" will fit when they finally have to put them on again .... No judgement here!

    My bestie and I have finally decided to splurge and booked a trip to WDW for November. We booked the Polynesian and all. We figured if we're going to be spending more time at the resort and this will be the only major trip of the year, we might as well stay somewhere nice. It also helps we got a great deal on a room. We tried going through one of those DVC rentals but, for whatever reason, Poly DVC still wasn't available. At least all the planning helped cure the daily doldrums for a few days. Now the slow countdown until November starts...

    You're going to have an amazing time, the property is gorgeous. I'm so happy for you and I agree, planning a trip most definitely helps get through the never-ending 'same day' 2020 has become by having something to look forward to. As though you don't need any more reasons to be excited about this fantastic resort choice: Trader Sam's and Dole Whips (need I say more)!

    Sadly, Trader Sam's is closed but there's still Dole Whips and Tonga Toast!

    That would be horrible - this is unsurvivable storm SURGE - so no going to the beach :) or staying in areas that will have rapid flooding.
    Still a CAT 4 is pretty bad. I really hope everyone can buckle up their houses and drive North! All my best wishes that you and your properties make it through okay!

    Happy 2020 and I want to commiserate to those who have lost a job one way or another.

    Due to the pandemic and then being on light duty(injury from my other job), I have not been able to work at B&N even when they reopened a month or so ago in our area. Today we got notification that with the reduction in payroll/hours due to the pandemic, all open/available shifts had been filled to capacity; any remaining employees still on furlough will will be losing that status next Friday, the end of the pay period.

    I guess having it happen essentially a day before my birthday stings a bit though my (hopefully) last doctor appointment was also set to be next week on the 3rd. It doesn’t help be foreboding that my B&N membership auto-renewed yesterday; at the time I was telling myself it was pointless if I was still going to be working there.

    Le sigh, one more chapter to close and another to open...

    Thanks for thinking of me. :)

    It has tracked further west so it’s a threat to southwest Louisiana and eastern Texas instead of southeast Louisiana. We are still in the range of tropical winds but not the Cat 4 winds and storm surge. My thoughts and prayers are with all the people in its path.

    Yikes! To everyone in Laura's path, my thoughts, wishes, and prayers are with you. Please, Please, Please STAY SAFE (or as safe as you can) and watch out for each other - and animals (pets) that may have been left behind to fend for themselves in the storm. Please check in periodically when you can so we'll know that you're as okay as possible.
