I'm hoping to get to know everyone better (or for the first time -- Beth!) since I won't be working that weekend and I'll be even closer at school in Fullerton (15 minutes from DL:cloud9: It's going to rock!). I'll start saving now, actually after I pay off all my debt (silly Disney Visa!). Staying at a hotel depends on how I'm doing money-wise. I already have my annual pass so I don't have to worry about admission and I've learned some pretty awesome food budgeting tips.

:woohoo:Only 9 and bit months!


Edit* This is my 600th post! :]

Are a lot of the ladies planning on HoJo's? Are the Ent Rates available that weekend? I'm hoping to get APs in Nov or Dec, and if so I definitely want to go! Due to the winter trip I have planned, I'll really have to keep costs down and save even more!

I think HoJo's worked out well last time so I think it's safe to say that's where we'll be again. :thumbsup2 Or at least try to be.

I'll stay anywhere, but it seemed everyone was happy with HoJo. I'll post once I hear from her.

Boo that I probably won't be able to come. :sad1:

I turn 40 on March 11, so you'd think I could phenagle some kind of birthday trip, huh? Beth, you might need to send over those lime green stripper shoes ;)

It will be end of year before I could even start talking to my dh about it, but I'll keep checking in wih the thread, ok?

hmmmm... I hope I can make it! If I do, It will only be for a couple of days this time. But... My kids will be older, maybe the little one wont miss mommy so much. I dont know... With dh and I going on a trip the first weekend of April without the kids, this is cutting it to close for us.. Isnt it? Hmmm.. What to do, what to do.

Okay.. Sorry, I was thinking out loud a little bit right there!:lmao: :lmao:

Ok ladies--I'm in too! And I vote for Hojo's again--they were SO nice to us.

Can I just say I am ready for 2009 already? My paralegal told me this morning she needs to quit for a while to take care of HER Mom. So I think for my needs right now I need a full-time admin. asst. -- which I have probably needed for a while but have been making do with DBF (but now that he's working--Yay!--he's not available to do all the admin stuff he was doing). Plus I'm hoping my paralegal gets her situation sorted out and comes back--at least part-time.

So, if someone knows of a crackerjack admin in the Orange County area let me know!

Of course you must keep checking in, because I know I told you I was not listening to that kind of talk!!! :mad:

I'll send over the shoes and an outfit to match!! Don't worry, he'll give in in no time! :rotfl:

I say we all plan a birthday party for you and then you can tell your DH you simply have to be there. I mean it would be rude not to show up to your own party, right?
I'll be in charge of hiring the entertainment.... :rolleyes1 :banana:

It is okay!! I had never been away from my little ones before. I missed them terribly, but the welcome home I got was priceless! :cloud9: I got to really enjoy DL, and go on rides and see shows that I had never seen before. It was very nice. Plus it gave my hubby some time to get to know the kids better.

Is it really ok to go guilt-free w/o the kiddos? And how do I convince the grandparents of this so I can get them to babysit?

I think you'll have at least 30 ladies who will say yes to that question. ;)

Honestly, it's more then ok. As moms we do so much for everyone in our lives and often push our own "me" time aside. If you keep that up, I guarantee you you'll end up burned out.

It's hard to go away. When I went to WDW on the first ladies only trip I organized, I cried on the way to the airport, I cried on the plane, I cried on my layover......see a pattern here?? :rotfl2:

But it was something I wanted to do for me. My kids understood. In fact when they found out I was going to WDW with a bunch of ladies from the DIS, they said, "How boring, all you'll probably do is shop the whole time." :lmao:
Ummm, yeah sure honey. :rolleyes1 And I knew they would be fine.


I am glad I went. I made some great friends that I keep in touch with still today (we went in '06). And on this past Disneyland trip, I met some of the nicest, friendliest, most fun ladies I've met in a long time. I had a blast!! And I was only there for one day. :rotfl:


It took me a long time to decide to take some time for myself. And it's not like I take off all the time. 5 days out of 365 isn't a big deal. And it helps me come back refreshed and ready to be a great mom and wife again.

Now, having said all that, it's a personal decision that everyone needs to make for themselves. I know not everyone can do it. Some people couldn't dream of leaving their kids and taking off to Disneyland, or anywhere. And that's fine too. To each their own.

Maybe you'll go once and decide it's not for you, or maybe you'll decide to do it every year. You never know.

Now as for convincing the grandparents.....hmmm, I don't know! Beg? Plead? Bribery? :confused3 ;) Good luck!



(geez, I talk alot!! :rolleyes: :rotfl2: But I hoped that helped!)

Count me and my mom in! It is not cast in stone but I am pretty sure we are going to go. It is going to be tough coming off of our big WDW trip in Nov and barely a month later going back for our family trip in April BUT we really want to go. We also won't be able to make the ENTIRE trip but we really want to do this.

We are thinking about coming sometime Friday morning like I will have to get the kids off to school and then get a flight somtime around 10ish. Then we would probably take a Sunday evening flight. So we will be able to do 1 full day (SAT) and 2 partial days (Fri and Sun). But we could be there for a lunch and Dinner Fri and all day Sat and breakfast Sunday and possibly lunch. So that works and I've never stayed at the HoJo but it looks nice.

So do we need to get a new entertainment book then for 09? I have an 08 book right now but I know they expire around Nov.

Just let us know what we have to do.

Hopefully we don't have to pay anything up front cuz I am having to come up with a BUNDLE for WDW right now and then I will be having to pay for our April trip at the same time!

But it sounds like fun and mom and I are def game! :)

As for the rooms, last time the rate they got was something arranged through Lorealle as a special price for those on the ladies only trip, and it had to be booked directly with her.

This time I'm not sure how she'll want to work it. I've got an email out to her now, so as soon as I hear something I'll let you all know. :)

Sure, you just had to make a new thread and fill 3 pages of stuff on me. Just keep rubbing it in that I can't go.

What do you think the chances are that I'll either win the lottery or that they will put another holiday in March for us Canadians in Ontario? They added one to Feb.

I'll keep following, you know I'm a sucker for punishment. LOL

So if you miss a few days of reading, you can just check the front page for any changes.

Ok sounds good. Well mom and I will only need a room for Friday and Saturday night so hopefully that is not a problem but I will just watch for the info as it comes out. I am excited. THis sounds like fun. Just hope dh doesn't get mad since it is so close to our April trip. But I will find a way to convince him. ;)

Hi Wendy
I'm a Disneyaholic and have been for 28 years (got my first Mickey Mouse stuffed animal when I was 2). My drug of choice is the mickey head ice cream sandwich oh and just about anything you can find at the candy shop in Critter Country, and the sweets on Main Street (you get the idea). Nice to meet you.

I'm in! I'll have to get there Friday though (probably 3ish) after work. I'm a teacher and the 6th is the day I go "off track" for 3 weeks! Hard to take a day off when I'm getting ready to be on vacation for 3 weeks anyway!

Woohooo! It'll be fun! I had a "mini" girls trip this last March, when a friend came out here to go to DL and Club 33 with me. :cool1: My kids were there during the day for one day- then DH took them home after Club 33. It was nice to do DL without them. Is it terrible to say that? My kids are terrific, and love DL as much as I do. We go a lot, and have a 2 day trip planned as soon as school gets out in June. But sometimes, it's fun NOT to have to go on something a bazillion times because your DS or DD wants to. :rolleyes1

Or eat where I want to! And not have to share my dessert!

Can you tell I'm excited?! I haven't told DH yet. I'll wait till after this June trip is through.

I totally understand what you are saying. I LOVE going to Disneyland with my family, but I also love going without them. Both are fun times, just in different ways.
Sometimes it's nice to go on the ride you want to go on, or to eat a meal without having to clean up something or cut someone's meat! :rotfl:

So, if someone knows of a crackerjack admin in the Orange County area let me know!

Wasn't there an out of work admin asking a question about her xmastime trip a couple months ago? Seemed she had a ton of experience, maybe someone will remember her user name for ya. :)

Count me and my mom in! It is not cast in stone but I am pretty sure we are going to go. It is going to be tough coming off of our big WDW trip in Nov and barely a month later going back for our family trip in April BUT we really want to go. We also won't be able to make the ENTIRE trip but we really want to do this.
........
Hopefully we don't have to pay anything up front cuz I am having to come up with a BUNDLE for WDW right now and then I will be having to pay for our April trip at the same time!

The good part would be that you could get an AP for this trip and use it in April, making your April trip's tickets nearly free!

AP math. :goodvibes

OK so I'm joining in on this thread b/c I want to go! Since I know DS does fine with the hubster I won't worry about that. And I'm sure the timing works (I could buy hubby a present for his b'day a couple weeks later). So it's just down to money, and 9 months is a nice amount of time to plan for that!

Hello everybody :wave2: My name is Wendy and I have been a Disneyland addict for the past 23 years. My drug of choice: the churro, I have been known to eat three in one sitting :scared1: I hope you will all support me in my addiction and add to it as much as possible. Thank you for accepting me the way I am :upsidedow

Hey Wendy nice to meet you! We are neighbors. I live in Orangevale! :wave2: I too am a Disneyaholic. Have been for almost 41 years on June 3rd (my b-day LOL). Let's see I own every classic Disney dvd, we shop ONLY at the Disney store and I go there at least once a month! I buy stuff from Disney online all the time. We go to EVERY Disney on Ice that comes to Arco Arena, we are AP's to DL, hmmm what else... well you get the picture!

Glad you are going on the trip. Will be nice to meet a full addict! ;)

Hope to see you on the boards again and look forward to meeting you on the trip! :)

Silly Beth, I can afford to go. I just can't get the time off. New job and only 10 business days of vacation which I am using for a cruise and Birthday/Xmas decorations/Mousefest in 2009. If I win the lottery, I can quit and travel as much as I want. Get it?

I really did like the HoJo for price and distance but I tell ya, on Sunday night I REALLY wanted to be in one of the hotels right across the lights. That last walk I was just dragging myself to the HoJo. The bus drop off area never looked so long.

I totally hear you with the distance. In the morning it was so close and I practilly hopped on over to the front gates. But in the evening coming back to the room.....ugh! It seemed to be further. Kinda like the stretching room, but sideways with a sidewalk you know?

I've never stayed at the HoJo. Is the walk really that bad? Or were you all just tired?

Nah, the walk isn't that bad. Just after being commando in the park all day (which I was not planning) it seemed like a long walk back. The best part of the night was re capping with the roomies.

I like staying onsite or at a hotel right across the street.

Last trip, I stayed at Camelot Inn (loved it) and then moved over to the DLH (really loved it, but cannot afford to stay there again for a long time).

I have never been to HoJo's. I have heard a lot of nice things...but the walk sounds rough after a long day at the parks.

05-20-2008, 08:57 PM
It was just that one day--Sunday. I was so sore after all the commando park fun the previous 2.5 days. It really is a short 10 min, tops, walk to the gates.

I would think the walk to DL or PP would be as far as the HoJo, maybe farther. The Grand California is probably shorter even with a room way on either end of the building. But that night, even Grand Cali would have felt far. I wanted to sleep in the middle between the two parks.

ETA: Of course I'm being difficult. It's my job!!! But I'll still see what I can do about snagging a day or two in March but I wouldn't hold your breath girls.

I have a whole city I have a hard time being in, b/c I can't remember what house BOTH my mom and dad insisted on pointing out. And they had been divorced since I was 4 (living apart since I was 2) so the idea of them "together" was even MORE icky!!! Can't go to Pacific Grove, CA without thinking about it...


I would think the walk to DL or PP would be as far as the HoJo, maybe farther.

If you go the wrong way (through DTD) PP is definitely farther away. IMO. We did 4 nights at PP, going the long way, then 2 nights at HoJo, and even though I was more exhausted by that 5th evening, the walk was shorter.

Hmmm--did you know there's a pair of stripper shoes that gets passed around among the gals on this thread? (the old thread had numerous mentions of it.) seems to be just the ticket when you're trying to get DH to agree to something--of course, not having a DH I haven't had occasion to use them!

Get enough wine in me and I wont need the shoes! Then again I don't have a DH either, so my super drunk powers are only to persuade single men into doing my bidding.

I wonder what would happen if I drank enough wine and wore the shoes? I could only conclude that I would be unstoppable! *there's a scary thought for you* :lmao:

We have several ladies who are new this time around so you won't be the only one, and everyone is so nice and friendly.

I've been doing some vacation date crunching. I might, and I really do mean might this time, be able to move 2 vacation days into March and do this trip. I'm talking like 40% chance at the moment. It all depends on the flights I can find to and from DL. So Beth, don't you go putting me on the list on the first post...cuz I'll deny it and have a Mod keep editing your post. :p

Or if the WDW trip girls all protest and demand me over there in Oct 2009. Ya'll can fight it out amongst yourselves. lol

IMPORTANT!!!!

I just got en email from Lorealle!! :banana:

She said she is working with Willie and her General Manager to get us some details on the rates for our trip. And this time she is going to set aside a block of rooms for us. :thumbsup2

But she wants to know if we are okay with Building 2, Deluxe Rooms? Or will we need the Premium Disney View Rooms in Building 1 again?

I've never been to the HoJo, so I need some of you other ladies to step up and offer opinions on this one. :confused3

Personally, I don't care. I don't plan to be in my room very much and I'll take whatever is cheapest. But what do ya'll think?

Hear ye, hear ye. Let it be known throughout the lands....

I've been doing some vacation date crunching. I might, and I really do mean might this time, be able to move 2 vacation days into March and do this trip. I'm talking like 40% chance at the moment. It all depends on the flights I can find to and from DL. So Beth, don't you go putting me on the list on the first post...cuz I'll deny it and have a Mod keep editing your post. :p

Or if the WDW trip girls all protest and demand me over there in Oct 2009. Ya'll can fight it out amongst yourselves. lol

I'd prefer this DL trip so that my time off work was spreadout a little more through the year. But we know I don't get any say in the matter.

What's that you say?? You're coming for sure??? Yes, I'm sure that's what I read!! :cool1: :cool1: :cool1: :cool1:





;) (hey, 40%? I'll take it!)

Beth, I've stayed at the HoJo a lot, and I actually prefer the rooms in Bldg. 2. I don't need a micro and I don't need a Disney view (I'll head on over to DLR for that, thankyouverymuch!) I say CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP is the way to go (and hey, if we're doing 10 in a room, it'll work out to $6 a pop -- Wendy can earn that quick for us.) ;) :rotfl:

Ummm, no. A $5 hooker simply will not do. How the heck are you going to buy us all drinks with 5 bucks?? You need a color that will rake in at least $300.

At least. ;)

Then I know the perfect color!!! I might need to borrow the shoes though :rotfl:

And as for the hotel, I'm easy. I've never stayed there so I don't mind. Just remember that you already called the balcony! :lmao:

I was never in the room for Fireworks which I would think would be the main advantage of Building 1. Does Building 2 have less amenities (i.e., fridges, microwaves??) I never used the store downstairs, and it's not that far anyway if you needed something, so wouldn't care about that--I do know Building 1 is slightly closer to the DL entrance--the only other thing I would be worried about is highway noise--which I have heard can be an issue in some of the buildings. Oh and does Building 2 have an elevator?

Cheryl, bldg. 2 is 4 stories and does have an elevator. The only amenity you'll be missing is the micro, and some of the rooms do not have a vanity/sink combo outside the bathroom. Otherwise, I think it's a quieter bldg. overall -- especially if Lorealle puts at the "right end". She knows what I mean. ;)

As a follow-up, I agree with Callie--I never used the micro either (but would like a fridge to keep water cold and freeze it for the next day). And was never there to enjoy the fireworks view. Less expensive is the way to go.

Does Hojo have suites? Just thought maybe one or two of us might get that to have the wine party in . . . . or maybe Lorealle can arrange the conference room like she was going to do the last time.

We won't want to bother with the suites, they are too spendy. However, the conference room IS on the ground floor of Bldg. 2 with a patio overlooking the pool area, so that would be really convenient for our wine party. :thumbsup2

I have no preference to what rooms we have. The only time I actually checked the DL view was in the morning after my shower since I didn't want to wake up my roomies. But like most everyone is saying, cheap is the way to go. So it basically doesn't matter to me.

I'd love to say it is just you to screw with you....but, that wouldn't be friendly!!

Well, now I really want to go. Just need to think of the best way to plan since I would have just left the DH with the DD, 4 cats, 3 dogs and some fish tanks to care for for 5 days for my conference. Since I would have just been off a Saturday..couldn't likely take another one..so could only do Thursday and Friday......okay, so I am thinking about it. I am assuming you'dbe my roomie?
If I go to Dl on this Friday, I will keep my eyes open for Ryan and Tom....if they are spotted, you better believe I will be pulling out the 'ol camera!!!!!

Amy

Sure I'd be your roomie. Lets just make sure we get at least a dozen or so more people in our room (sorta like a clown car) and that way the cost will be kept down real low. I'm sure your DH and DD would be ok with you being gone for two more days, maybe more if you dont work that Saturday, but heck, we weren't there for the whole time last time either and still had a great time.

And I was at DL last Friday, and I am sad to say there was no Ryan sighting and no Tom sighting either.

Okay so I thought I'd update you all with what I know so far. I had my needle biopsy today and 1 of the 3 lumps has disappeared so all I can say about that is :banana: :banana: :banana: . Now for a little more good news the other 2 lumps had fluid in them and they were able to get samples. I'll know what's going on on Thursday (next week that is). I'm a bit sore, one of the lumps is right near my ribs and the doctor poked the bone by accident when she was taking the sample. Other than that I'm doing alright.

That's great news :) I'll send some good vibes your way. :goodvibes

Ok, Wendy is my new best friend;) .

Okay.. dh and I are canceling our trip in April, so I am all in for this trip. Im really bummed about the April thing... But OH WELL. Maybe we will do it when the kids are older.I'm sorry to hear about your trip. But I am really glad you will for sure be with us. :yay:



Whatever the group decides is fine with me. Personally, I think whatever deal Lorealle can swing for us, we will be grateful. I love the wine party idea (in all honesty I probably drink too much wine:upsidedow ). All I know is I am for sure going and staying with the group!
I think I am the only one who doesn't drink wine. Oh well, I guess that's a good thing since someone has to make sure you all make it back to your rooms! :rolleyes1


Hmmm...I think I'll go for High Class Call Girl on the fingers and Cheap Hooker Red on the toes, that way I get the best of both worlds. :rotfl:
:rotfl2: Well it's always good to have balance in your life!

Well, I'd really like to go, but my AP expires in February, so we'll just have to wait and see what happens.Business is starting to pick up, so going on the trip is a definite possibility.
And for what it's worth, I've only stayed in building 2 at the Hojos, and it was very nice. In fact, we had a great view of TOT from our room on the 3rd floor.A view of ToT would be nice. I hope you can make it! I know you really wanted to. I'll just add you for now. You've got time to figure it out. ;)

Just think you get to see Disney for the first time again through the baby's eyes. How fun!
Take care, talk to you soon.


This is exactly what I'm looking forward to. I miss when my kids were younger and how excited they got about Disney. They don't really appreciate Disney (or anything for that matter) anymore. So it'll be nice to experience the feelings of bringing a young child again :lovestruc .

I think Tom is a Dream Squad CM who is an older gentleman that pulls his pants up very high.

Oh, and I added Shelley to "the list", despite her telling me not too, so now she has to come. :thumbsup2

Yes, I was in Vegas and it was pretty warm. We drove out on Friday, and enjoyed the weekend with my parents who live in Summerlin. I can't believe my dad will be 92 this year. They are doing sooo great! We stayed at a La Quinta near them, so we drove over every day. We drove home early on Monday morning to try to get through the desert before the 107 degree heat hit. We got home around noon, so we did ok.


Here's my "I'm not really lost" story. Those who know me might appreciate this one.
One morning, we went driving around and did a little shopping before we went over to see my parents. We were going to their house, in Sun City, and I was on SmokeTree going west, and I got in the middle lane crossing Buffalo, and realized the only way I could go was into the "Lakes" communities. (I should have turned right, gone to Cheyenne and then gone up to Rampart) I've been through the Lakes before, it is full of winding roads, but it is picturesque. Even before I crossed into the community, I knew I could be in trouble. So a white SUV turned in right before me. I turned to my husband and said "I have no idea how to get from here to the other side of this community, so I'm just going to follow this SUV. If they get us to the other side great! If they are going home and pull into a driveway somewhere, we're screwed and they are going to think we are stalking them." So I follow this SUV through lots of turns and my muddled sense of direction thinks that we are generally going the right way to make it to Rampart St. After a few minutes, and some turns I would not have taken, we do indeed find ourselves at Rampart St. phew! So I take quick stock of where we are and determine I need to turn right. OOPS nope, the street I needed was left of where we came out. So I go down to the traffic light (Cheyenne, which I could have gotten to oh so easily in the first place if I had been in the right lane!) and decide I'll just make a U-turn. In front of us, is the same SUV. They also make a U-turn. I start laughing and tell my husband that they must be thinking we are stalking them for sure. Then I said, what if they turn into Del Webb like we are going to .. and we both just laughed. Well, sure enough, they turned on Del Webb into Sun City too. My husband and I are both laughing almost hysterically, it was soo funny. Thankfully at the first stop sign they turned left and we turned right.

That was pretty much my strategy, just follow whoever is in front of me and somehow I'll get where I'm going. I still can't believe that it worked!

05-22-2008, 02:20 PM
Chris, that is too funny!! :lmao: I'll have to try that strategy next time. :rolleyes1 The Lakes neighborhood is so nice. I'd love to have one of those house right on the lake. :love:

I'm glad you guys missed the heat! Monday was the worst. We broke records. :scared:

That's so cool your Dad is going to be 92 and is still doing great! Wow. Good for him. :cheer2:

Was the La Quinta you stayed at anywhere near the Sahara West Library? That's the only one I can remember seeing. Not that I am especially on the look out for La Quintas, LOL.

I'm glad you guys missed the heat! Monday was the worst. We broke records. :scared:

That's so cool your Dad is going to be 92 and is still doing great! Wow. Good for him. :cheer2:

Was the La Quinta you stayed at anywhere near the Sahara West Library? That's the only one I can remember seeing. Not that I am especially on the look out for La Quintas, LOL.

It was hot while we were there, but not swealtering yet. So glad we missed the record heat on Monday.
We stayed at the La Quinta on Tenaya, not far from the hospital. There's a Hampton Inn right next to it as well. They have a nice free breakfast, including the make your own waffles. Pretty yummy. :)

Monday it was almost 100 degrees here.

Today it is in the 60's and POURING rain (literally walked 10 feet from the car and am soaked). Hope it clears for the weekend~!

Wait . . . . who's Tom? Are you gals holding out on us? We only heard about Ryan!

Yes, he is is a grandpa appearing fellow is a Dream Team guy. Sadly he was only being friendly when Michelle, Stacie and I happened on him. It is a rather long convoluted story that amused the living giggles out of the three of us. But, while not particularly "Hot", Tom is a sparkley fllirty gentleman...and we had a shameless amount of fun teasing him!!! He did teach us something about the Dream Team. They are onlyactively dreaming when they have their white vests on. So, spot one without a vest, don't bother kissing up, cause it won't get you anywhere!!!

Well, I did get an Honorary Citizen button and a "Tink" pin from two different ones when they weren't "vested" so kissing up may still be an option!

Cheryl, hey no fair, we all were being our most charming to Tom, complimenting his pants and everything!!!

He did give us a sheet of Little Mermaid stickers...so I guess I shouldn't whine quite so hard!!

Oh, and you know why it is raining today? I take total responsibility...washed my car this AM. Crap.

Hey Cristobel,

If I go, you can so totally share my room...and Stacie's. I like the idea of the clown car analogy!!! I already have big enough feet for the clown shoes!!!!

Cool. I am already making plans of who I am sleeping...er....rooming with..and I haven't even made the proposal to the family about going again right after a trip to Ohio!!!

I think Tom is a Dream Squad CM who is an older gentleman that pulls his pants up very high.


Great memory you have Katie. And not only is Tom a Dream Squad CM who happens to be an older gentleman that pulls his pants up very high......he is also very flirty too. And don't for one second think that we weren't trying to work that angle for our own benefit.

Cristabelle - of course I would love to have you as a rommie again. And I will try to get my hair combed quicker so we can be there at rope drop.

Steph, great news. Hope it keeps getting better.

Dagny, I don't care if it is paid or unpaid time off you dork. My boss doesn't love me as much as you do. All I'd have to do is say Disney Trip to you and you'd say "How many days do you need?". "And can I come too?" See if I ask to room with you on any future trips. Think I'll stick with Lauren. She's nice to me.

Beth, you're a bad girl. Did you really put my name on the list? Yep, I might just have to hurt you the next time I see you. Or spike your drink since I know you're not a big drinker. You'd be under the table in 2 sips. :laughing:

Capri, hope you're feeling better today. I would think reading this thread could help you feel less depressed for a few minutes. Everyone LOVES to pick on me!! You'd think I deserved it or something.

I like it that so many of the hotels now have those waffle makers. With a family of 6 it really helps to not have to go out to eat breakfast when we travel.

So, I can now kinda multi quote..how do I change my font and color. I am so envious of your technical-whiz bangness!!!!

My DH is in IT..but I find it a little humiliating to show him what a techno **** I am. (Oops--not allowed to say that huh?) I mean, my information technology skills are a bit remedial!!!

Amy:rotfl2:

It's easy. When you are making a post, at the top of the box you'll see a whole bunch of options to play with.

In the lower left corner, you'll see a B; that is for making things appear in bold lettering.

Next to that is an I; that is for making things appear in Italics.

After that is a U; that will underline something for you.

Above that you'll see Fonts. There is a drop down bar with several different designs to choose from.

Next to that are sizes. Again use the drop down bar to pick the size you'd like. One is smallest. Seven is largest.

After sizes is another A. Use that drop down bar to choose from a wonderful r a i n b o w of colors.

To use those options you can either type out what you want to say first, highlight it and then click on what you want to do. OR click on what you want to do, and type it out after.

And there ya have it. :teacher: Play around with it a little to get the hang of it, and if your not sure how something will appear just preview your post first.

No thanks are necessary. I'll send you my bill. (unless of course I've confused you further, in which case never mind, it's on the house) :rotfl2:
