Alright, an update!

But, I think I'm going to have to go back to the beginning to figure out what's going on with your ressie problems. Well, at least they let you hit the pool while they gathered up evidence for your arrest!

I keep trying T. I have a feeling that he's subconsciously thinking I'm going to ditch him somewhere or something. You know, I once tried to book a vasectomy for him and not tell him. My plan was to get him to "go for a ride" and then say, "We just have to make one quick stop first..."

Come on, if you knew your wife was capable of something like that, would you trust her when she tries to send you to the other side of the theme park and promise to meet up with you?

I may, or may not have had such thoughts too.

Let's face it...the kid and the old guy only slow me down anyway...

OMG - I read this and laughed my freakin' butt off OUT LOUD...Tony looked at me like I was nuts and when he asked what was so funny, I had to tell him all about the blacklist "theory" and get him all caught up to what made me laugh.

He didn't get it.

Big, heavy sigh...do ya see what I'm dealing with here?!?!

A Lot About Nothing...Senseless Ramblings of a Mominator...

So when I last left off, the DVC Gods had decided to royally screw with me. There. I said it. I’d been flagged. Frozen. Cut off. Denied.

Perhaps even…dare I say it? Blacklisted.

Notice I'm not saying I didn't deserve it though. Much like the New England Patriots, I ate my Cheaties for breakfast and took my chances that I’d be caught. Anywhooo…

I'd been told my original keys would work but that I'd have to come back to the desk at some point to get my new keys that would work throughout my added night.

But would they? Really?
With that, we were free to start our day!

A day about nothing.

We were going to get settled in to our studio and then hit the pool. V and Leo were already there. She was happily doing laundry. Which, honestly, I don’t get. V loves to do laundry. If only we lived closer, I’d pay her to do mine. However, the fact that you can do laundry and hang out at the pool, makes it a little more bearable. I still miss having a washer/dryer in the room though. One of the drawbacks to staying in a studio.

We brought lunch with us to the pool and then kept an eye on Leo so that V could go and get their lunch. Sadly, after she left, I went to the bar to get another drink and noticed that you could order lunch there too. Wish we’d known that prior to the laundry goddess making the walk to the CH. Well, at least now we know for next time.

T and the rest of the gang were going to be joining us soon…I think they may have been at AK, which was crazy. It was so blazing hot that day…AK would be the LAST place you’d find me, that’s for sure. AK in the summer makes me sweat from places I didn’t even know COULD sweat!

So having gotten settled, the boys immediately went upon their way, enjoying the pool. Jumping in, getting out, jumping in…well, you get the routine.

After a little while though they decided that just jumping in and out of the pool wasn’t fun enough for them. They needed a toy.

A great, big toy to play with…and one that would play back….

And that’s when it started….”Daaaaaad…are you coming in??”

Heh heh…Tony’s the oversized pool toy that every kid wants…He’s so much fun. They pile on his back like they’re riding a water horse and he swims them around the pool going above and below the water. They have splashing contests and their favorite? He can throw them across the pool like it’s an Olympic event. You may have seen evidence of this in V's TR.
Even better than that? V and I can enjoy ourselves chatting over adult beverages and not worry about the boys. Everybody wins!

Eventually though Tony gets tired and gets out of the water. Limiting the uhhh…limitless conversations we can have while he’s watching the boys…I will have to try and do something about that in the future…Red Bull in his Pina Colava perhaps?? Hmmmm….think, think, think…

The rest of the gang soon showed up and we pretty much dominated the pool area for the next couple of hours. How nice it was…Me, T & V sitting around sipping beverages and the guys keeping the kids entertained in the pool. Heaven I tell ya!! I'm pretty sure the kids enjoyed it too...look at the big smile on Evan!

en And Kate even made an appearance for some group pictures…


I can just see us 25 years from now, little old bitties with big floppy sunhats on…It probably won't look much different from this picture, but I hope that I'm thinner then. Just sayin'...

Our “day about nothing” was super. Relaxing and chatting and drinking with friends. Pure bliss I tell ya. We even had no plans for dinner. Yep – that’s right. I said it. We were going to be flying by the seat of our pants for the evening too. We even took a short nap. KGM had indeed showed up on this trip and oddly enough, I didn’t mind her presence. Life had been so stressful and hectic that doing a lot of nothing seemed like a good idea.

Later that night, Tony would have the first of 3 solo outings this week. A night out with the guys at Fuego’s cigar bar. That's right, I said 3. He had golf tee times set up for Monday and Wednesday mornings with our buddy Jason. They love golfing together so Tony was really looking forward to it. Although it must be said he was pretty disappointed that he couldn’t convince Andy and Waldo to swing some clubs with him…he really wanted to play with them again. Without the pressure of a professional watching them! LOL!! Hopefully another time…

OFF TOPIC….

Now some of you may wonder why I would give my husband all this time to himself on a family vacation. Certain women won’t let their husbands take an afternoon away for golf. And here I am saying that my husband is not only going out for a night with the guys, but he’ll be spending 2 whole days playing golf.

Marriage is a give and take folks. I take all the WDW vacations I want and every once in a while I give the dog a bone, so to speak. Plus, this particular vacation was quite special. Tony was actually looking forward to going.

There was no neck-craning, eyebrow raising and arm flailing. Heck, that alone deserves a reward, no??

He didn’t fight me. Or he’d finally given up fighting me.

Either way it’s like breaking a horse. Listen up ladies...You have to be the alpha and sit tight in your saddle, no matter how hard and long he tries to throw you off. In the end, the horse gets tired, realizes this is a fight he can not win, and becomes submissive, along you to ride him and tell him what to do.

After a while, the horse will willingly do what you want under that saddle, wondering why he fought it to begin with. Some will be such great animal companions that you can take them to the annual horseshow and he’ll jump every time you lead him.

For that, you take care of the horse and give it the occasional goodie…an apple, or a carrot. A “boy’s night out” and a couple of golf days are his apples and carrots.

It’s got to be like this. Otherwise, a suitcase of cheese becomes your big fork and spoon, KWIM?

Besides, he was actually looking forward to it by now. Not only would he be spending an entire week with his family (instead of every 2nd or 3rd weekend) but he was looking forward to seeing everyone again. He really enjoys our…group vacations.

Yeah, I’m calling it a group vacation. Although, it feels more like a family vacation - a family vacation on a television show like Full House. Not a real “family” vacation.

Where there’d be fights.

And a little bit of fun.

And a lot more fighting.

These little jaunts that have become an August tradition are all fun baby!!

With people that are like family members.

The ones we like anyway.

We seem to end up staying in the same hotel, enjoying hanging out and then splitting up at the pool, in the parks, big group dinners, kid stuff, grown up stuff…it's really a great time

__________________________________________________ _________________

Wow – there goes my TR ADD…sorry. I got lost there for a while. I wonder if any of this will really make any sense anyway? I’ve been writing this for literally the entire weekend. Occasionally sitting down, writing a bit, wondering where I lost my funny and then working on it some more – so if it seems to jump around

Where was I?

Ah yes, Sunday night. We were going to just wing it for dinner…somewhere at DTD and then split up with Tony so he could have his guy-time. When I eventually woke from my nap, I felt like I could have slept straight through the night. I missed a ton of texts from everyone. V talking about WPE’s for dinner. T asking if Tony was still up for Fuego’s. Margarita wanting to know what we were up to that night. Jason saying they were at DTD and wanted to know where we were…

I loved having the Focker Hotline with me. Have I mentioned that?

Not nearly as much as I’d love having an iPhone though. Just sayin’…

So I tried to wake up a bit and return some calls/texts. I told V that we’d never make it in time to catch up with her for dinner, but I’d get a hold of her later. Told T that Tony was still down with the Plan and that he’d meet them at the bar. And I called Jason and Margarita and told them we’d catch up with them at DTD later on.

I rounded up the boys and got ourselves somewhat presentable and we headed to DTD in search of some much needed grub…to soak up the alcohol that would be consumed starting shortly…

We got to DTD and weren’t really sure what we wanted to eat. We just knew we were hungry. So we decided to just walk until something bit us.

Which was difficult because it was freakin’ MOBBED. And hot. I was not a happy camper. Even during the holidays I haven’t seen DTD this busy. It was nuts. We gave up on the idea of WPE and the Earl of Sandwich and kept going.

T-Rex was dismissed as we’d be eating there in a couple of days with V…and then Tony suggested that we go to Fulton’s.

No problem. But why does it look like it’s closed?

Seriously. As busy as DTD was, there wasn’t a soul going in or out of there. Which made me leery, but as we approached the walkway and saw people in the window and decided to give it a shot.

WOW.

Can I just say we had an awesome night?? The service was excellent. Our server, also named Michael, was probably THE best we’ve ever had at WDW. It’s elegant yet casual, it feels like it’s got a fancy atmosphere but yet it feels relaxed at the same time.

We took forever to decide what we wanted. Everything looked so good on the menu that I literally was just stupefied. Know what I ended up ordering at Fulton’s CRABhouse? Prime rib and grilled shrimp - it was delicious,

but I was sorry as the place starting filling up around us and I saw more and more dishes around…plus, the shrimp were awesome. Whatever it was they had on it was delicious and quite frankly, tasted like…more! I was really sorry I didn’t order more fish. Like the seafood tower appetizer. I don't have pictures of it, but it's pretty spectacular. I could have been happy with just that for dinner. I did get the tuna appetizer though and it was awesome.

Michael gave 2 thumbs up for the chicken he had ordered and proclaimed it the best he’s ever had.

Tony ordered the bisque, but being from New England where bisque actually has chunks of seafood and is not pureed, he was a little disappointed.

He said it was good, but was hoping for more chunks…The way they brought it out to him was kind of cool though…the bowl had chunks of lobster in it and then they had the bisque itself in a copper kettle that they poured over it.

The cocktail du jour for dinner was a Mojito…which surprisingly came with a bamboo stick in it and not the usual pineapple leaf or whatever it is that T always gets stuck with! But it was delicious. As were the 2 others that followed it, heh heh.

And so fat and happy from dinner we were just paying the check (ouch – it’s definitely not a cheap dinner, but so worth the money) when we heard from Jason & Margarita again. They were over at the Harley shop and had just finished dinner at the new restaurant, Paradiso. Margarita, said that being Mexican, she wasn’t overly impressed with the food at Paradiso. She said it was good, but not quite as good as what she’s used to. So for me, I’m sure it’d be delicious.

Admittedly I’ve been dying to try it. But I’m quite angry that it has replaced my beloved Adventurer’s Club. Therefore I had to boycott on principle. PleasureIsland was the one place we grown-ups had that was all ours.

Know what? This is a rant for another place.

So we left Fulton’s and tried to find Jason and Margarita, but we had no luck and both of their phones went to voicemail so we pretty much gave up hope of finding them.

Michael and I walked Tony over to Fuego’s and said our good-bye’s and just then I heard my name. I looked up to see Jason & Margie sitting at a table at that little bar outside waving frantically. Finally! Hugs and kisses were exchanged all around and then Jason decided to go pop in and say hi to Tony and meet the boys and have a little male bonding time of his own. I ordered a beer and sat with Margie and Michael and caught up a bit, enjoying the people watching and the music.

Doesn't it look like Michael's saying "Can ya believe this cool drunk chick is my MOM dude?!?!" Ahem. Ok, maybe not....

Michael adores Margarita and she even got him up and dancing!



He never dances in public with me. What the heck?

One thing about Jason & Margarita…they’re 2 of the friendliest people you could ever meet. We met them at a soccer game about a year ago through another very good friend, Martha. Martha’s son Carlos and Michael became instant best friends and it turned out to be fate. Martha’s husband Johnny worked for our electrical contractor on my job and our 2 families became instant friends. They lived just outside of our subdivision and the more that we learned about each other the more we decided we were just meant to be friends. Michael and Carlos had never met before – so they say – yet they rode the same bus in Kindergarten. They went to the same daycare and the same drop-in place on Saturday nights…it was just meant to be.

Anyway, I’m getting away from myself…So Martha & Johnny were friends with Margarita and Jason and they came to a soccer game one day. Martha stands on the sidelines yelling to Carlos in Spanish and it’s absolutely hysterical.

Have any of you seen that new show Modern Family? Where the Hispanic mother goes crazy on the soccer field? Yep – that’s Martha. It's an absolute RIOT to listen to.

Margarita, would sit with me translating and laughing with me. We all got together for Halloween not too long after that (which was more of a party for the adults than the kids) when we discovered we’d be at WDW at the same time.

So since October, even though my plans were up in the air for a few months, we’ve been excitedly planning getting together in August. And our 3 families have gotten closer and closer and by the time we’d left North Carolina for Georgia, we’d spent every single weekend together for months, bouncing from one house to the next, kids having sleepovers, etc...

Jason, Margarita, Johnny, Tony & Me

Martha, Me & Margie...our Oreo cookie shot! LOL!!! We're hoping that Martha, Johnny & Carlos will be joining us on our February 2010 trip - they've never been before...they'll have a blast!

It was fairly devastating to all of us when we moved to Georgia. To all of a sudden be so…alone. So when we went home to NC for 4th of July it was so nice to all be back together again and we excitedly talked of our upcoming trip over several adult beverages at Jason & Margie’s house...

And that’s when “the question” came up…I’m pretty sure it was Jason who asked it. Imagine if you will the laughter and chatting and clinking of beer bottles as I tell them about the people they’ll meet in August and of our previous exploits when a voice says, “so how do you know these people anyway?”

And then all you heard was mad laughter from my husband.

“Go ahead” he says, “tell them how you know them all!” (still laughing)…

So…I take a deep breath, all eyes and ears on me, and say, “I met them on the internet”….

You could have heard a pin drop. And then Jason laughed as if I was making it up. When he realized I wasn’t, he contorted his face and looked like he was sorry I asked. So the rest of the night was spent defending and describing my invisible, axe murdering friends one by one and the fact that we now pretty much vacation together on a yearly basis!

The next day the party was at our house where I proceeded to show them pictures from our past vacations. See? They look like normal people!

Jason & Margie were excited to see “brown folk” in our vacation pictures (LY T!) and when hearing our funny stories they became even more excited to meet everyone. A little background on their sense of humor now – and how I just knew they’d fit right in with everyone…the first time Tony met Jason & Margie was on Halloween. They’d come to our house with their 2 girls, Martha, Johnny and Carlos and we took the kids throughout our subdivision trick-or-treating, making frequent stops back at our house for tequila shots and so the kids could empty their full bags of candy and go back out.

After trick-or-treating, we took our little show, and the tequila bottle, on the road to Jason & Margie’s house, where the kids played and the grown up’s sat around talking and laughing.

I’d already met them a few times before, but this being Tony’s first time, they were having a little fun with him. Jason, who used to be a border patrol agent, was telling Tony some stories and then Tony asked how he and Margarita met. Without a beat, Margie said, in this hysterically funny thick Mexican accent, “He caught me swimming across the river”….OMG – it was so funny. I knew it wasn’t true, but watching Tony was priceless…he didn’t know what to say. He kind of stammered a bit and had no clue what to say after that. Then we all started laughing and he realized that they were messing with him.

It was a riot. Quite the ice breaker!

Ok, so a roundabout way of getting there, but go back with me to DTD now, where Jason was in Fuego’s with the boys and Margie, Michael and I were hanging around having a good time.

Jason came out of the bar to check on us, looking a little perplexed…apparently he walked up to Waldo, speaking Spanish (Jason speaks Spanish as fluently as Margie) and Waldo (and Rick and Andy) had no idea what the heck he was saying! It was pretty funny. Poor Jason felt like an idiot. After gently assuring him that yes, he was indeed an idiot, but the others would like him anyway and we told him to just go back to the bar and speak English like a normal white boy!

I laughed especially hard because it seems like T’s always got a little blurb in one of her TR’s that people automatically speak Spanish to them like they expect them to understand. Pretty funny.

So we had one last beer and then Margie and I took Michael to the Lego store and let him play for awhile and Jason eventually caught up to us. We hung around for awhile chatting whilst Michael played and then called it a night and went our separate ways. They were staying at KidaniVillage with Jason’s family so we split up at the bus stop.

Tony showed up a while later having enjoyed his time out with the guys. He really had a great time and said Rick had him in stitches the whole night.

So there you have it, our day of nothing really turned out to be quite something.

Good friends, good food, good drinks, good cigars...the stuff that dream vacations are made of!!

Up next, with Tony and Jason golfing, what will Michael and I do with ourselves all day?

Will yet another day’s Plan go in the toilet?

Or will the Mominator raise her ugly head yet again??

I just know Uncle Mooch will be this way with Reid and our new niece/nephew!

What a wonderful thought.

Can I just say we had an awesome night?? The service was excellent. Our server, also named Michael, was probably THE best we’ve ever had at WDW. It’s elegant yet casual, it feels like it’s got a fancy atmosphere but yet it feels relaxed at the same time.
Definitely must try. I love all things seafood.

Still don't know why everyone thinks this is so funny!


You definitely needed this night after all the turmoil called life.

After a little while though they decided that just jumping in and out of the pool wasn’t fun enough for them. They needed a toy.
A great, big toy to play with…and one that would play back….
TONY!!!

Of course...

Listen up ladies...You have to be the alpha and sit tight in your saddle, no matter how hard and long he tries to throw you off. In the end, the horse gets tired, realizes this is a fight he can not win, and becomes submissive, along you to ride him and tell him what to do.
Great analogy!

These little jaunts that have become an August tradition are all fun baby!!
With people that are like family members.
The ones we like anyway.
EXACTLY!

It was kind of funny - the look on their faces...like they were at a carnival freak show...they weren't quite sure what they were looking at, but the Barker said the creature was friendly...

I wonder if I'd read a bad review or something somewhere as we haven't even wanted to try it before... Now, I'm in love. And I would ask for Michael's table again. He was awesome.

Wish I had pic's of the seafood tower...YUMMMO...totally having that next time!!

Is that on the shore? Or within driving distance to a beach? Perhaps they at least have a pool...

Either way it’s like breaking a horse. Listen up ladies...You have to be the alpha and sit tight in your saddle, no matter how hard and long he tries to throw you off. In the end, the horse gets tired, realizes this is a fight he can not win, and becomes submissive, along you to ride him and tell him what to do.

After a while, the horse will willingly do what you want under that saddle, wondering why he fought it to begin with. Some will be such great animal companions that you can take them to the annual horseshow and he’ll jump every time you lead him.
