Morning all - it is a lazy morning after being up late playing UNO last night. Good to hear that OKW went to value Shelly - some of our best tips are from those tour groups ;) I think I would've heard them talk about OKW being a value and then I would've been thinking about it all day wondering - did they mean it was such a good value they considered it a value resort? Are they just stupid? It would have drove me nuts!

(Has anyone heard Lewis Black's The White Album? This reminds me of the "If it weren't for my horse, I wouldn't have spent that year in college")

I am just getting up myself after that long UNO party! :)

OKW a value! :rotfl:

Good morning everyone!! :) :wave2:

Did you know that the train that goes around the MK also goes to other parks?


And to think.... all these years I've been leaving MK and wasting my time sitting at a bus stop to get to another park. :rotfl2:

Good morning everyone, first chance I have had to log on this morning, even though I been up since 6 am.

I had fun playing UNO last night with several of my Dis friends.
I hope everyone has a good weekend.

I am now off to tour the YMCA, for possible membership and then to lunch and then go to one of our Ice Cream shops that makes Homemade Ice Cream, that is celebrating National Ice Cream Day today (which is actually tomorrrow) with 25 cent single scoops of Ice Cream.

I got on the MK train headed to Animal Kingdom and the darn thing just kept circling the park!! Stupid train! :headache:

You must have missed the AK stop. Its the one with the big mountain, I think Mt Eversplash or something.

Glad to hear you enjoyed HOP. :)

We were at Epcot on the tram when someone came up to me and asked me if that was the tram to Animal Kingdom? :confused3:confused3



Morning!!

I went to see the new Hall of President's yesterday!! OMG!! That was awesome. If you have a chance to see it next time you in the world, GO!!!!
It gave me goosebumps!

I also heard some pretty fascinating things from other guests:

Did you know that OKW is a value resort?

Did you know that the train that goes around the MK also goes to other parks?

And my favorite: It's not Cinderella's Castle, its Sleeping Beauty's castle!!

There were also lots and lots and lots of "tour groups" I must have saw at least 10-12 different groups!! :scared1: I avoided them by walking the other way!

Oh I forgot the windows don't open in the monarails in WDW.
That's DL. :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

I actually had a co-worker ask me this week to plan her "Disney" vacation for her. The parks she wants to see is Sea World and Universal Studios. She asked me not to include the Magic Kingdom or any of the ones with Mickey because her boys were too old to enjoy the mouse. I had to ask. I just couldn't help myself. "So you want me to plan a Disney vacation that doesn't include any of the DISNEY parks????" :confused3

one of my colleagues introduced me to our summer college intern as "disney obsessed" ... and here I was was trying to be professional (clearly an overrated concept)

Once a couple of years ago, my sons and I were sitting in the hot tub at WL and there was a dad and his young daughter in there as well. She was about 10 or so. I asked if she was having fun and she replied "Oh yes, today we went to Epcot and tomorrow we are going to Disney World!" Dad agreed. :sad2:

Good morning guy's!
Hope all is well and everyone is having a great weekend.:thumbsup2
Well today is the day that John and Kenny are going to start building this shed that we need.7ft.x 14ft :thumbsup2
The shed will house the 35 Plymouth coupe he has in the backyard.
Now before you start getting all excited it has not been restored yet!:eek:
However this is something he hopes to do eventually with the boy's.:)
He has been collecting things in preparation for this task for a while now.
We are having alot of work done to the backyard this year..
New fence, trees removed 3 of them. and the driveway extended across
the back of the property, which is where this new shed and the coupe will sit.
Then maybe a new deck.:dance3::dance3:
Well that is enough of my ramblings for now.
Catch you later.

Hi everyone!

Hope that everyone is enjoying the weekend- I took a break from tiling my condo today to just rest (I'm a mom, so by rest I mean do laundry, dishes, pick up around the house and cook dinner). My renters move in at the end of July and it has been a mad dash trying to get everything ready:scared1:

I have exciting news- my husband told me today that it looks like his band will be invited to a music fest in California to open for some national acts (we are in Indiana, so this is a big deal). It sounds like an awesome opportunity- now I just have to figure out how I will manage to take care of the kids, work, and keep my sanity while he is gone!

Hi All! Hope everyone had a great weekend. We spent today staining the kids swingset/fort, and cleaning out the shed from all the old toys they don't use anymore. Nothing like spending a hot afternoon listening to "Hey! That's my old swing! Hey, that's my old wagon, etc" You get the picture. It's so much easier to get rid of the old junk when they're not around! Anyway, we're finally finished for today. Ran out of stain, so we have to get more, but I don't know that I have the energy to go to the store tonight.
I'd much rather hang out online here anyway!:surfweb:

Good morning.
The film festival is over. I was looking forward to gettingback to work and the regular routine. Instead, I am headed for New Jersey to meet up with my siblings to plan my mother's funeral and take care of all those things that need to be done after a parent dies. My father died over thirty years ago when I was in college, so this is new to us.

Good morning everyone! I am later than usual logging in today, power was out in my building at work this morning for a couple of hours to run a new electrical line for the construction going on.

Came into a mess this morning, as a water line somewhere in the ceiling sprung a leak over the weekend, and collapsed the ceiling in our hallway, with water & wet accostical tile everywhere.

Have a good day!!!

Sometimes having time off is worse than being at work when you come back and there is loads of stuff that didn't get done, lots of panics :scared: Hoping it was all ok?

I take it you did the Illuminations boat cruise? Where abouts does the boat stop? What happens before Illuminations? Do you go around the lake?
We're doing it in September and was just wondering what happens! And do you know if you can take your own drinks aboard? Sorry for all the questions! TIA :thumbsup2

Yes we did an Illuminations boat cruise. The boat stops underneath the bridge that is in front of the International Gateway. We left the dock at the Yacht club, rode down around DHS, and came back to Epcot and sat underneath the bridge until the show, then turned around and came back to the dock. There were drinks and snacks on board. It was a blast!! You will have a great time!!

Morning all. I haven't been around since Friday since I spent the weekend at the hospital with my FIL who was just diagnosed with lymphoma. I wish the hospital would provide Wi-Fi. It would make hanging out hour after hour less painful. Hopefully he'll be home today or tomorrow.

Now I have to decide about the cruise we are planning on in November. Final payment is due soon and I have no clue how he'll be feeling next week much less in 3 months.

:hug: to you Scott...

So talk about drama this morning...I received an IM from a friend. She and I don't usually talk via IM on FB...it's usually through e-mail. So this IM pops up and says that she's in trouble and needs help. I'm immediately on alert...i've been friends with these girls for nearly 20 years now, but we haven't talked in awhile. She says that she was mugged and needed help. I ask where she is...I literally had my keys in hand as she lives here in Indy. She tells me she's in London and then asks for money. This puts me on red alert right away. She's very close with her family and any of them would do whatever they had to in order to get her home and make sure she's safe. Since i'm suspicious, I tell her that I can't help financially right now and ask if she's been able to contact her sisters. No response...I immediately send messages to her sisters as I no longer have their numbers in my cell. One of the sisters messages me back and says that someone hacked into her sister's account...she's not in London and she hasn't been mugged...

So to those of you who have FB accounts...beware! Make sure that you have strong passwords!! I don't know how this person got into her account...if they figured out her password or what, but I just thought i'd pass along the warning...

Brandie, the same thing happened to me about a month ago - but it was an email sent to my regular email account - didn't come up as spam or anything. It was the same exact message, stranded in London, needed money, ect... The "real" person then emailed everyone a few hours later, said she was fine,and said her account was hacked into.

Monday already? Weekend was good - Saturday was lazy :cloud9: and yesterday we went to a retirement party for one of DH's co-workers. They did a field party with a pig roast and keg. The guy retiring is a police officer so we had a bunch of cops acting like kids. The guy who was hosting the party has a store on his property where he sells guns so all of the drunk cops were buying guns. As my husband was perusing the long guns, I kept thinking of Don for some reason. (Thanks Shanan for helping me with my spelling on FB :))

Morning all. I haven't been around since Friday since I spent the weekend at the hospital with my FIL who was just diagnosed with lymphoma. I wish the hospital would provide Wi-Fi. It would make hanging out hour after hour less painful. Hopefully he'll be home today or tomorrow.

Now I have to decide about the cruise we are planning on in November. Final payment is due soon and I have no clue how he'll be feeling next week much less in 3 months.
:hug: to you Scott! Is it hodgkins or non-hodgkins? DH is in remission for 5 years now with Hodgkins 2B and we were told that the tx is quite successful. Best of luck to your FIL - I'll add him to my prayer list.

Brandie, the same thing happened to me about a month ago - but it was an email sent to my regular email account - didn't come up as spam or anything. It was the same exact message, stranded in London, needed money, ect... The "real" person then emailed everyone a few hours later, said she was fine,and said her account was hacked into.Other people are commenting on her wall now and whoever this was just seemed to go down the friends list to see who would give her money. They gave different locations...Texas, London...Weird. So far, no one sent money...we were all smarter than that!

Scott I am sorry to hear about your FIL, and don't know what to tell you in regards to the cruise. :grouphug::grouphug:

Brandie thanks for passing that along, I have a pretty simple password, maybe I should change it. Talk about scarry! :scared1::scared1::scared1:

I also want to say Good Morning guy's :thumbsup2
I had a great weekend, thanks guy's. :)I tend to use weird passwords. Like song lyrics...I'll take the first letter of each word in a song lyric. My IT guy was always happy that his password cracking software couldn't crack my passwords! (He would run tests every now and then on people's passwords to make sure they were secure) And mix up the lower and upper case letters...heck i've been known to use a 1 or ! for the letter I. My passwords are pretty secure...:thumbsup2

Scott, so sorry to hear about your FIL. I hope everything works out for him.

I know it's a hard thing to think about, but did you get trip insurance? It might be easier to make that final payment knowing that if necessary, you'll not be losing the $$$

Good afternoon everyone. Life is just a bit stressful right now :( We have to be out of our house in 3 weeks. No big deal. We found a great house to rent, great price, six month lease. Super. However, DH is putting in for a different job. Just found out on Saturday. IF he gets it, it works out great because we've sold our house. However, I'm going to be homeless in 3 weeks. The town he put in for doesn't even have a hotel. Believe it or not, it would be considered a job promotion. But, I have no place to live. And the type of house I want to live in is not readily available in Podunk. So, it would mean renting and building. That is all ok. But, he might not know for 2 weeks whether or not he got it.

Be careful with this. He should check the trip insurance policy before proceeding to find out if this would be covered or not. If it is a DCL cruise and you have DCL insurance, if the reason is not covered, you can apply the amount paid (less the cost of the insurance) to another date. There may be exclusions or restrictions that are not known unless you check it out first.

Scott my thoughts are with you and your family.

Wow- moving is always stressful but you guys really know how to add a little extra in there! Are there towns not too far from Podunk that might have houses for your? Will you guys be able to move/get settled before school starts? My stomach is churning for you!

When you run a business, you live in Podunk and support Podunk, especially if you live in Podunk. If you live in a city, no one cares where you live. There is a very small sleeper community not too far from Podunk, and it is all brand new homes. Not an option for us.

A few weeks back there were "Videos" being sent that appeared to be from a Friend of yours that was the Key to unlocking your account if you opened it on a PC based computer - Macs appeared to be immune to it. I recommend you change your password to your account just in case.

I get Mr. Rodger's Neighbourhood.

But Lois, I will be your neighbour.:goodvibes
And Becx, I'll gladly also be in your neighbourhood.:goodvibes:goodvibes

I met Mr Roger's in 1993, He was an incredible man. I almost could not go to work the day he died. He was the key note speaker at a conference in Anaheim and the arena was packed, SRO and 15 minute standing ovation when he came out and changed his shoes and put on his sweater and stood to talk. I got his autograph and a picture with him... It was amazing

:hug: to you Scott...

So talk about drama this morning...I received an IM from a friend. She and I don't usually talk via IM on FB...it's usually through e-mail. So this IM pops up and says that she's in trouble and needs help. I'm immediately on alert...i've been friends with these girls for nearly 20 years now, but we haven't talked in awhile. She says that she was mugged and needed help. I ask where she is...I literally had my keys in hand as she lives here in Indy. She tells me she's in London and then asks for money. This puts me on red alert right away. She's very close with her family and any of them would do whatever they had to in order to get her home and make sure she's safe. Since i'm suspicious, I tell her that I can't help financially right now and ask if she's been able to contact her sisters. No response...I immediately send messages to her sisters as I no longer have their numbers in my cell. One of the sisters messages me back and says that someone hacked into her sister's account...she's not in London and she hasn't been mugged...

So to those of you who have FB accounts...beware! Make sure that you have strong passwords!! I don't know how this person got into her account...if they figured out her password or what, but I just thought i'd pass along the warning...

I had my american express hacked as well. somehow they got the pin code and were changing my address to London. (sensing a pattern here) AE called me within 30 minutes and asked if I had moved and by that point there were already 6000 in charges. I was just relieved they only got that card and it was not an identity theft to deal with. They were awesome about canceling the charges and being on top of the theft.

Hope she is able to get it stopped.

Hi all....:upsidedownightshift again...

Scott - :grouphug: I hope you can sort out what you need to.

Nicole :scared1: - remember to breathe.

Brandie - yikes! Scary...I'm going to be checking my passwords tonight for sure!

I got to try Bollywood dance this weekend - FUN! and the location where the workshop was held offers Zumba classes...I MAY check it out once I see how the fall schedules work out.

We are getting a shed this week. Note- "getting" DH has many great qualities, but building, renos etc are NOT high on the list. It will be installed for us on Thursday. Since he wanted to work from home to be here for it, we are dropping my car off for new tires as well. This is a good thing - it was getting a little scary on wet roads.
Guess I am staying close to home this week - no Safari for me. I am off mostly week days this week.

That they did, but I kinda had to jump through hoops to do it. They needed to make sure I was actually me after it happened. So I had to get a phone call from them at the line that is at my house.....but since I don't have a lan line they could not do it. I then had to wait for the pin code to come to my house and then it was finally all cleared up. There was something else I had to do too, but I am just glad they take the steps to make sure it is super secure!

He started chemo yesterday and will be have this afternoon after spending 16 days in the hospital. His TV blew-up last week, so I have a new flat screen in my car I need to go install this morning.

I think I am going to cancel his cruise reservation. If the Dr. gives the OK when we get closer we'll rebook. It will probably cost a few more $, but makes the most sense.

Some exciting news for me...I was looking at our Dec travel dates with DH :rolleyes1, and we noticed that with the way Christmas dayoff dates fall by the time we come back from Ft. Lauderdale, DH would not have to go to work. :rolleyes: So he said we could drive up to Orlando and spend 6 days there! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: So we're going to check out KSC, US and SW.

:Some exciting news for me...I was looking at our Dec travel dates with DH :rolleyes1, and we noticed that with the way Christmas dayoff dates fall by the time we come back from Ft. Lauderdale, DH would not have to go to work. :rolleyes: So he said we could drive up to Orlando and spend 6 days there! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: So we're going to check out KSC, US and SW. What this really means is that pre & post cruise v2.0, we can spend time with you crazies instead of our original plan of staying offsite to check out those dark side places :dance3: :dance3:

WOO HOO!! So does that mean you will be at DAP? Or is this about next year?

Andrea, your family is gorgeous! Your girls are super cute!!! What a beautiful wedding!!:bride::yay::yay::yay:

Morning Thursday folks :wave2: It's DH's Friday so I'm treating it like that too! :lmao:

Andrea - wow, what a gorgeous family you have! And your oldest's brows looked great :lovestruc - very natural princess: Fab to hear that the day went off perfectly. Your sis is very fortunate to have you helping her out so much! :grouphug:

WOO HOO!! So does that mean you will be at DAP? Or is this about next year?

:sad2: After the podcast cruise v1.0 DH said I could do DAP solo :cool1: But for the first time in FOREVER we were going to start our Christmas holidays a week before :santa: arrives so when I looked at tentative dates, it seemed like the dates would clash/cut too close with DAP. So I asked DH if I could switch DAP for ABD (boy, we like our abbrevs here :lmao::lmao:).

For the first time in a long while we were going to spend a couple of weeks visiting DH's folks over the holidays...

Then...dum dum dum dummmmm, after his folks came for their visit here with us, DH said he didn't want to go visit them :rolleyes1 He suggested I go find us a full transit Panama Canal cruise. :idea: The only dates that work for us coincide with DAP - cuz he won't sail during hurricane season :scared: and I didn't want dates that would cut into my Olympic or ABD trips. So while you guys are :cool1: at DAP, we will be on the boat. :sad1: Debarkation is in Ft. Lauderdale so we'll drive up to Orlando and spend a few days there. I'm excited to hear what the team has planned for y'all at DAP...I know it's gonna be :woohoo: We'll miss you guys! :grouphug:

Andrea - it's lovely to see those pics - you all looked stunning :goodvibes

I hope the day went without a hitch?


Hi Becky - thanks! We did have one minor complication - the zipper on Isabella's dress broke as we put it on her so my mother had to literally sew her into the dress and we had to cut her out of it at the end of the night!

Thanks Karen - her brows are still full even after the waxing - imagine what they looked like BEFORE they were waxed!! My sister is now on her honeymoon in Antigua, she is having a great time!

That's too bad you won't be able to join us for DAP, but, you will be having quite an adventure of your own. At least you guys will be coming on PCC 2.0 so we just have to wait a year longer to see you!

Hey Everyone! I have two small Disney events planned over the next few weeks, so I thought I would share. First, we are going to see the Christmas Carol Train here in Chicago, tomorrow. It's finally made its way to the midwest. Secondly, my daughter and I have decided to make the quest to Marceline, Missouri. Its about a six hour drive. We will probably go next week or the week after. There are two stops along the way there and back in Hannibal, Missouri (Mark Twain fans will appreciate that) and Springfield, Illinois. Go see the capital and all the Abe Lincoln "stuff".

The big event comes this October when we finally hit WDW and the F&W Festival!! October 8 through the 12th. Anyone else going to be there during this timeframe?

My FIL came home from the hospital last night after 15 days. That was a big relief. I went and filled 15 prescriptions for him. It took me an hour to write out all the instructions so they were easily understood.

No DAP for us. We are still planning on our cruise in Nov since my mother still wants to go even in my FIL isn't up to it.

OK, I haven't been hanging out here. I always take a little down time after a vacation before I head back into the pool (and I have another vacation planned in between now and 2.0.) As far as the actual "planning" threads go. I know this isn't truly a planning thread. Hey I racked up some fairly respectable post counts for that last cruise thread group.

Any way, if this is wrong, please let me know:

ASK TRACY

How are check in and reservations for stuff on board handled if one person in the cabin is a member of the Castaway Club and the other is a first time cruisers? Checking in at the port I'm sure isn't a problem, but if we are making reservations for Palo or shore excursions, can I do it for both of us at the Castaway Club date?

Thanks,

Hi Kim,

The lead guest will be listed as a Castaway Club member. The room will have to still be paid in full at the 90 day mark to make reservations for Palo and shore excursions, but you can do it for both of you at that time.

Well today was a fun day here.... we are in the process of having our entire backyard and driveway ripped out and replaced. My brother in law owns a masonry company and is the one who is doing the work at our house. This afternoon they were installing a cobblestone apron in our driveway, and were moving pallets of stones around with the bobcat.
One of the workers got off the bobcat, and says he pulled the brake, but, it started to go down the street. Our house is on a hill, so the bobcat went flying down the street, with my brother in law chasing after it, and smashed into one of my neighbors cars. It did extensive damage to the rear of his huge Denali, and the worst part about it is that he uses that truck to take his boat down to the marina on the weekends.... We feel so bad, I'm just glad that thing didn't kill anyone while it was going down the street - it traveled a good 400 feet or so...... Only us :sad2:

So what happens to me over the next few hours I lay there unable to block any of this out and fall asleep. So I end up trying to get as far away from them as possible in the room(AKA in front of the exit door and the bathroom door) and sleep on the hard floor!!! not only am I not able to sleep in a bed but now I am on the floor with a towel for a blanket ( at least it is my tinkerbell disney blanket not the tiny hotel towel!!) so needless to say I got no sleep!!! it was awful!!:sad2:

That sounds like traveling with my dad. When we were little my brother would bring a sleeping bag and sleep in the bathtub to get awat from his snoring. He has been married and divorced 4 times and I am convinced it is because the women crack from sleep deprivation.

I start a week of vaction in 2 hours and 4 minutes. One last class to teach and I am out of here. We canceled our trip to Maine since we we're planning to go with the in-laws and my FIL isn't up to it, but I can sit around the house with the best of them.

Went out walking along a creek with the pups the other day and say this little guy. Baby snapper. He was about 3/4 the size of a deck of cards. He didn't start to move until my boy pup started to sniff him too much. Then he went to bite his nose. Pepin would have deserved it if the Mr. Turtle would have bitten him.

WOW! Talk about scary!:scared1::scared1::scared1:

It certainly was scary, I wasn't there to see it, I would have been screaming!


Oh WOW!!! :scared1: That is crazy!! I am really glad no one was hurt, and that it didn't crash into anyone's house!!!


So am I - from what I heard my brother in law went running down the road screaming at some landscapers to get out of the way of the runaway bobcat!


Andrea, :eek: :scared: very scary, glad no one was hurt. :grouphug: Hope the rest of the driveway work goes smoothly pixiedust: It'll look wonderful when it's done and in a few years, you'll have a good story to laugh over at the family dinners. :upsidedown:

Karen, hopefully this will get done soon, my neighbors must hate us with all the trucks up and down the street and the NOISE!!!

I'm doing well thanks for asking. No flair ups, have an appt with the surgeon today to set my surgery date. I'm just hoping I make it thru the weekend without issue and I'll be happy :)

Glad to hear Don, we will be thinking about you on Tuesday.

Todd you do know that if you ever have to pick one up to move it that you grab them on their shell from the top behind their heads.
I am told this way they are not able to bite you. :)

For PCC 2.0 we're gonna arrive 10th Dec - about 27th or 28th Dec - fingers crossed we can get our choice of the DVC rooms ;)



I caught up last night :goodvibes it's great to see all your pics and find out what you guys did :thumbsup2

Good morning all. Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Yesterday we went to see a friend judge a dog show (we breed and show Labs). She did a nice job, but the judge before her was so slow. We ended up wasting most of the day when we should have been done at noon.

Today I am breaking in my new ProQ smoker with some buttermilk brined chicken thighs. We are having our annual Oink Cackle & Moo BBQ in 3 weeks, so I need to get the new equipment broken in before cooking for 100. If anyone is in the area and wants to stop by for the big bash PM me. People are in and out all day eating BBQ.

For those of you following my FIL he feels great so far. We were supposed to leave for a week in Maine yesterday which we canceled when he got sick. Unfortunately, we couldn't get anyone to take the condo so we are on the hook for $1500. Last night my FIL called and said he thought they would take a ride up to the condo (2 hours) and "check it out". When I commented he probably didn't want to fight the traffic coming back on a Sunday and he said maybe they would stay for a day or two. His doctor specifically told him she didn't want him traveling during his first chemo cycle (even to Maine) so I squashed that plan. After I hang up the phone my wife says "he's probably crying on the couch since you told him he couldn't go" We got in a fight over why I always have to play the role of the heavy and I felt really bad. 30 minuted later my MIL called and thanked me for telling him no. He had been talking about it all day wouldn't listen to her. I felt a lot better after that call

Have a great Sunday!

Our day here at work will be trying to salvage files from our File Share Drive that went belly up on Friday afternoon :scared1: <24 hours after we got word that our new share was available. Unfortunately, we had not had a chance to start moving files yet. :scared: And our back up drive, had failed on the backups and the person who was monitoring hadn't caught that it didn't back-up.

Well today was a fun day here.... we are in the process of having our entire backyard and driveway ripped out and replaced. My brother in law owns a masonry company and is the one who is doing the work at our house. This afternoon they were installing a cobblestone apron in our driveway, and were moving pallets of stones around with the bobcat.
One of the workers got off the bobcat, and says he pulled the brake, but, it started to go down the street. Our house is on a hill, so the bobcat went flying down the street, with my brother in law chasing after it, and smashed into one of my neighbors cars. It did extensive damage to the rear of his huge Denali, and the worst part about it is that he uses that truck to take his boat down to the marina on the weekends.... We feel so bad, I'm just glad that thing didn't kill anyone while it was going down the street - it traveled a good 400 feet or so...... Only us :sad2:
Trust me on this - it isn't only you. I could you stories about how cars get wrecked that would have wondering if you should shake your head or :rotfl2:. The one I was working on last week was a driver that thought she hit the brake but hit the gas instead and went through her neighbor's living room. Thankfully no one was home but that was a joy to have to discuss...

We aren't going to DAP either! But we will be on 2.0! I wouldn't miss it for the World!!!!!

We had a nice day at Hurricane Harbor. I took a planned sick day and lounged around and played with Aaron in the water.
Very sad that you won't be at DAP :( Exactly what IS a planned sick day, though???
Oh I hate that so much - I need my sleep or I am not fun to be around :rotfl:
Maybe that is my problem - I need to get more sleep so I will be more fun?

Shanan: how was Chris?!!! :cool1: I wanted to see Coldplay so bad but had to miss it cuz they came when the in-laws were here :headache:

Scott: Good job in keeping your FIL's best intererst, even tho you may seemed like the bad guy, esp. since the dr specifically ruled out Maine. Most of us have experienced feeling "good enough" to do something when we weren't well but really wanted to do something. In those times, I usually find I've over exerted myself. Your FIL & DW are lucky to have you looking out for him :grouphug:

:dogdance: You breed labs?!!! :worship: I've wanted a lab for what seems like forever...I may have to PM you...:rolleyes1

Yeah, I am sad too! But I gotta be responsible :sick:. A planned sick day is basically I tell my supervisor that I am taking a sick day tomorrow. I don't actually call in the day of.
I think I need more sleep too! :scared:

It's actually a gorgeous day here, really don't want to be at work, oh well!

I'm looking forward to the weekend as we're seeing our friends we're taking to WDW to go over a few things. We've booked Kouzinna now (opens in Aug apparently) and I'm hoping it will be as good as Spoodles in May :lovestruc I had the ravioli and I could just eat up a huge bowl right now popcorn::

We had some bad news yesterday one of Gav's grandmothers slipped and fell and broke her hip :scared1: luckily Gav's uncle was there but she is in hospital waiting for the op. We're going to see what the visiting policy is (with all this swine flu thing going on we're not sure if just anyone can visit) and maybe pop in one night this week.

I should be getting the replacement cable I ordered for our Dyson vacuum cleaner (the old one stopped working and we think it's the cable as it almost came on when we wiggled it!) today and it's about time as the house is a mess :scared1: I do hope it is the cable that was the problem :confused3

Hope all is going well for you and your kin.

This is my last day in my mother's house. Only it is not her's - it belongs to her estate, which is the four of us.

This afternoon, I fly back home. I leave my brother alone in the house. For the past several years, his primary responsibility has been caring for Mom. This will be a time of major transition for him. He needs to be looking for a job, and this is not a great time for that in this economy.

I will be happy to be back at home and in my own routines. But it will be hard knowing my mother is not around any more.

What I am really looking forward to... getting caught up on the podcasts!

I hope your brother will be okay - seems like his world has really taken a turn.

My mother & I talked on the phone every Sunday at 10:00am sometimes for well over an hour. She passed away 4 years ago. Even now, on Sunday mornings when I look at the clock, my mind still says " Oh - Mom will be calling soon" - for the first few weeks after she died - I had to have my Sunday morning coffee in the living room instead of the kitchen - just couldn't bring myself to see that damn clock....

It takes awhile, but eventually it doesn't hurt so bad

Thanks for the kind words. My family has spread out - sister in Buffalo, brother in Syracuse, me in Maine, and the other brother still at home. The hope is that we will still stay close now that we will not gather at Mom's.

Your story about your mother will be a bit true for me, too. There are jsut somethings that are meant to be shared with a mother!

But, I am home now... and have downloaded the podcasts. Time now for some sleep.

Oh, my! I listened to the podcast last night in bed and heard Kevin offer condolences on the loss of my mother. Made me cry all over again!

Morning all. More rain today. Imagine that. We might head to Maine for a few days if the Dr. gives my FIL the go ahead at his appt today. He feels great, so I'm hopeful. It would be great for his spirits.

I canceled my FIL and MIL's cruise for November (we're still going with my mom and her partner) and transfered their deposit to the Podcast cruise. Since PC 2.0 is now a family trip we added DS 3 to the cruise. Tracy managed to do all that with a single e-mail. She's my hero!

Don't forget...
The rain in Maine falls mainly on the plain. Oh, no! That's not it.

Good morning everyone! (It is still morning, isn't it?)

:wave2:

It was fun playing Facebook UNO last night with some of you. Even Don! UNO on pain meds. :lmao:

I may or may not join chat tonight. I think I need to cut back my evening computer time. My eyes aren't that great anyway and I've been spending a lot of time at work on the computer. I think I'm getting some eyestrain and that's maybe what's causing some headaches. I may not be able to resist the pull of chat though - we'll see.

Chat tonight will depend where I'm at. If I'm up at the hospital and planning to spend some time here I will likely be in chat. If I'm on the way home, probably not. Won't know until we see how the rest of the day goes.

Hello !

I have not been able to get on the boards for the last week because I was in a storm of home projects getting my condo ready for renters. I did (proud because it was all by myself!):
pulled linoleum and tiled the kitchen and 1/2 bath
Tiled the bathroom
Painted entire unit
Fixed all screen windows
Pulled toilet, fixed closet flange and replaced fill valve
Installed new garbage disposal
Put electrical cord in new dryer
Changed all electrical outlets and switches
Installed new bath fixtures in both baths
Installed new kitchen faucet
Pulled, cleaned and painted all trim
CLEANED THE PREVIOUS RENTERS FILTH (heavy smokers, 3 kids and dog in 2 bedroom condo)

My fingers are throbbing, but I have paying renters in my condo!:banana::banana:

There are a few more things left to do, but I did not feel qualified to service the washing machine that they broke and I offered the new renter a little money off of this month's rent if he would install the microwave/hood unit and blinds (I was sooooooo tired, I wanted to go home).

I had heard someone on the podcast team joke about wanting to be a slum lord- I am here to testify that maintaining a property is HARD WORK!

Now that the condo is done, I can go back to vacation planning!:cool1:

Hey all,

Wrapping up the last meeting tonight with the Lance Armstrong people and then I can join you again in chat next week. YEAH !!!! Looking forward to speed reading once again.

Ok so how do I learn more about facebook Uno? Can some one send me a PM or a link so I know how to sign up?

Thanks, and hope everyone is having a good week.

Hi Don. Podcast UNO on Facebook has happened two or three times now. Someone determines that at a certain time, any podcast fan who has podcast friends on Facebook shows up in the UNO application to play.

Have you played UNO on Facebook yet? It's really addicting. You just log in and wait in the "lobby." As soon as any of your friends show up, you click on their pictures to start a game with them.

Sometimes you end up playing with strangers too, but there's a chat portion where you can talk to each other while you play.

Thanks for the info. FB is blocked from work so I will have to check from home. I thought Bejeweled was bad and now you all are suggesting another form of on line addiction (just kidding) I will go and check it out.

When you decide to do it as a group, do you usually post on this thread?

Hi Don,

I was wondering if you could do a report on what your experience was like volunteering for LAF? I have had friends who have rode in Ride for the Roses in Austin. I am curious what it is like on the other side.

Yes. The past couple of times, Nikki has posted a thread on the podcast board telling what day and time!

It is addicting. You might want to play a few hands with strangers first. Some people are really slow, which gives you a chance to figure it all out.

:)

I need to get into the Facebook Uno, too.

But I don't think I have enough DIS facebook friends! What should I do?

I haven't played real Uno in years. Should I practice with real cards?

Facebook Uno is very fun! You can add alot of us by going through the Uno thread where we put links to our facebook pages. I would suggest just practicing with the game through facebook. It isn't a very hard game to learn either! Hope to see some of you at the next Uno session! :grouphug:

Wow - it's great to see all your hard work pay off, it's great to hear you can now rent out the condo (is that like a vacation home where people stay a week or 2? or somewhere people rent for a year?) I wouldn't be able to do half those things :eek: although we did manage to replace the power cable on our Dyson last night :cool1: Now I can vacuum again :headache:

Had a meeting with a supplier and should be able to get a few more discounts :cool1: - that will make my boss happy ;)

I wish this Storm Front would move, so I can get the elephant that is sitting on my head to go away (sinus pressure headache). I missed chat last night because of my headache :headache:.

She's doing ok, but I don't think she'll be able to go home (2 storey house with awfully steep stairs) so she may have to go into a respite home in the meantime and then move somewhere more suitable :confused3 if you ask me she should have moved to a bungalow years ago, but she shared her house with her late husband and I guess she's holding onto that.
