Good morning everyone, happy to be back after 2 weeks of vacation and seeing that there were 29 pages on this thread I am going to say I opted out of reading all that so I hope everyone had a good last two weeks. The vacation started off rough, went camping and the place we booked turned out to be loaded with standing water (ie mosquitos), and only 1 of the 3 baths listed actually being open and even at that is was lacking ventilation, and the playground had not been cleaned including a board with rusty nails, no one was happy. We luckily got a full refund and booked a place relatively close by that is very nice.

Once there we get settled in and jump in the pool and everyone was smiling, so we thought we were good. The next day was nice everyone enjoyed themself with swimming, playgrounds, and bike rides. On the next day we we going ok, but need to run out for a few things. Here some meltdowns started for the kids which is normal and a couple small showers came in and our tent was not covered at the time so we split up. My son and I grabbed some ice and food and halfway back to the site he throws up in the car. I think it might be the food (you know a few too many smores). Unfortunately it continues when we return to the site and next thing we know it is coming out both end in our tent (we have a travel potty).

We decide we have to go home this is not ending soon and being stuck in a tent like that would be miserable. So we pack up, try to explain to the kids on the next site that only speak French but have enjoyed playing with out kids, that we are leaving at 5 pm after arriving in a whirlwind just a couple days before. We dive back with my son dry heaving countless times on the way home. We get home get everyone to bed. And then at the end of the next day I start to feel sick and sure enough it is my turn, next day I am feeling ok but my two girls get the bug, and finally the next day it is my wifes turn. So that was basically the first week of my vacation. Second week was planned staycation which went fine. Hope everyone else's vacations this year went better, looks like @Lacassems was better for sure.

Been there my friend!

Absolutely have been in the exact same shoes, @ejgaudette. Absolutely miserable. Always seems to happen right around one of the boys' birthdays every year. Glad it was just a 24 hour type bug.

Good morning everyone! Thank you all for the kind words about my wife, turns out today is only a consultation and the scheduling of her surgery.

When they called back in July they told her she needed to have her gallbladder removed and it needed to be done asap, how about July 16? She told them we needed to make sure I could get off work because I wanted to be there for her surgery and today was the first day I could be off for two consecutive days. She has called and emailed them asking about what prep she needs before surgery and finally Friday she called and they told her today was not the surgery, just an office visit.

It's a complete and total case of miscommunication on their part and I ain't happy. They could have told her at any time it was us coming in to talk and not the procedure. They even told her on the initial call that she needed someone to come with her because she wouldn't be able to drive home.

Rant over.

I hope all of you have a wonderful start to your week and @ejgaudette, I hope you and your family get to feeling better.

 

That sucks. Pain to get all mentally prepared for a surgery and then not have it happen. Hopefully it won’t be a big deal for you to get the time off for her actual surgery.

Good morning and happy Monday! Someone in management thought it would be a bright idea to roll out a huge software change on the busiest day of the week. So, this morning has been fun...

Looking pretty cloudy outside, if it doesn't rain I think I'll head up to the course on lunch and work on my short game.

Have a great week, everyone!

Good morning everyone! Taking a day recovering from driving to Kansas City from Saint Louis to take the wife to see Ed Sheeran. Coffee and cinnamon rolls, then going to talk to a builder to see about starting a home in a new development. Should be a fun day.

Sorry about your wife’s/your struggles to get this scheduled.  Hopefully show has been doing okay in the interim.  For any surgery where you are under anesthesia they need you to have someone drive you home. 

  I kind of feel your pain,  been having some issues since the beginning of July and it is go do this test, wait for doctor appointment/go see another doctor, go do another test.   I’ve just decided to do my normal thing even though I pay the price and don’t feel well afterwards; I’m not just going to sit at home and do nothing.  
 

hopefully everything gets figured out soon and she gets that troublesome gal bladder removed and starts feeling better!

Top of the pot spies ☕@ejgaudette, that sounds horrible, hope all are feeling better soon.  @sirchunksalot perfectly appropriate rant - all the best getting this saga behind you.  Going out with the Monday group today at 1000. Will be somewhere near 108F when we finish... which I'm told is tolerable (yea, for lizards 🫠).  I'll have the 2 quart jug with two packs of wild berry flavor Propel in the cart.  Have a good day all!

Good Monday Morning Spies! 

Nice WARM Central Florida morning.  6:45am tee time this morning, walked 18 holes & it was hot! But a nice walk.  Drench when done. Got home & showered, working on a 2nd cup of coffee & have Matt Helm movie on in background! LOL. 

Prayers with @sirchunksalot & Mrs! Terrible the miscommunication, especially with scheduling a surgery!   Fell better @ejgaudette!!

Sheesh. With recognizing that many health care facilities are understaffed and the people there are overworked .. that's still not an excuse. We, the health care consumers, are totally dependent on them to get things *right*...

Hopefully your work is understanding and accommodating!

What?!?! @David Leighton Reid you retired? How did I miss this? Congrats and welcome to the ranks of the retired! Now you have no excuses not to post "The Daily Reid". 😂 Not gonna lie, I'm loving retirement. Although retirement does lead to doing some crazy things to fill your time. I started working with a running coach last week. 🤪 😂
