Dave ~ Crew chiefs are 3 years with the possibility of a 4th year, as far as we know. Pilots normally stay for 2 years.

Yeah, that's a problem. I suggested to DW that she invite her mother, as she watches the children, brings us food, etc. But, DW also invited her brother, his wife, and their children. Well, it has all been a disaster.

On the positive, anyone have a Iphone or Windows phone? I am thinking about upgrading and wanted to know what other Dis Dads thought or are using. I am with ATT now and they are largest wireless in KY. Any reviews?

What a Peanut Buttery Beverly week this was! So glad it's over in less than half-an-hour. Let's see, in the past five days:
1. Dad had an exploratory procedure that confirmed the existence of a brain aneurysm. He'll be having it removed in an endovascular coiling procedure shortly after the first of the year (he needs to be on blood thinning meds for a couple of weeks before the procedure). The exploratory procedure confirmed that the source of the aneurysm is a congenital structural defect, so my brothers and I are being encourage to get MRAs done to test and see whether we have the same abnormality.
2. That post-trial brief I thought was due on Friday? Yeah. Not exactly. It had to be postmarked THURSDAY, and we had our office holiday luncheon on Wednesday. I didn't notice that the date had been calendared wrong until Thursday morning. Luckily, I was able to scramble and get it done, but Thursday was a hell of a day.
3. Discovery responses that got shuffled aside so I could finish the post-trial brief got finished and sent out today. That was a scramble too, because with one legal secretary out on maternity leave, we're down to two legal secretaries for the entire 20 attorney office. The responses were ready to go out only minutes before the last mail pickup of the day for our office (otherwise, I'd have had to walk them to the post office myself, not a big deal, but an additional time-consuming PITA).

I might actually get to come up for air for just a bit now, though I have two other big cases with looming deadlines that I need to pay attention to. One bright note - DW and I decided that we didn't feel like Chinese food and a movie this year, so we reserved a nice suite at Great Wolf Lodge and we'll be spending Christmas Eve at the indoor waterpark with the kids.

Sorry about your Dad. He'll be in my prayers. Hope you and the rest are OK.

Rough week at work - been there too many times myself.

Love the Great Wolf Lodge!! Have fun! It's funny, most of my partners are Jewish and they always joke that the traditional Jewish Christmas is Chinese food and a movie.

I'm sill gonna kick your butt in football.

I will get it going in case anyone wants to make a Christmas donation.
Thanks Christian!

I will say that GKTW is an amazing place. We know first hand because we stayed there 2 weeks ago while we were on Juliana's Make-A-Wish trip. The place is so magical and there are over 1500 volunteer hours there DAILY.

If anyone wanted to donate to GKTW a 'different' way read this post Maroo made on the Wish Trippers thread.... taken from HERE

The Podcast Team has set up a First Giving page for Give Kids the World...

This is the way it works. They are hoping that 10,000 people will ask just 10 of their friends to donate just $10 to Give Kids the World.

If we can get that done - then we will have raised ONE MILLION dollars for GKTW! And that is the goal!! ONE MILLION bucks!!

CLICK HERE TO DONATE...and send your friends here, too.

You don't really have to donate anything... just find 10 friends that are willing to donate just 10 dollars to GKTW! (Of course, if you want to donate...feel free. )

The suitcases are packed. The van is almost packed. The house has been cleaned. The boarding passes printed out. Just one more sleep til our family's own CA adventure for Christmas. We'll be staying in 5 different cities, seeing about 29 different relatives on both sides of the family, ranging in age from 4 to 94... two of which have various forms of cancer, and one of which is suffering from alzheimers - but even though she won't recognize me, she's still my grandma, the last living grandparent I have. While there we'll of course be spending time with all of our (yours and mine) favorite mouse, duck and goof, and enjoying the terrific DVC rooms at the Grand Californian. And yes, sometime in the new year I'll put out a TR about that visit as well.

I will be on and off the boards while away, mostly via my phone, but I will try to get my current Daddy-Daughter TR (link below) updated at least once or twice while on this trip, as I'm definitely planning on writing one or two installments on the plane headed west. At this point I'm not sure if I'll have time in the morning before heading out to stop by and say it, and cannot guarantee that I'll have time later in the week, though of course I'll try, but I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year a little early.

Congrats to oXar, and prayers for AJ. And a little CRUD in advance, since I know I'll miss a bunch of stuff along the way for the duration of the year.

Cheers guys!

Home at last!!!! my bed has been calling my name. What a great trip! Loved Port Orleans Riverside. Only bad point was the freezing Beverly weather! Got to meet Jason and his family. Got the honor of riding Everest with his son for his first time, wasn't sure if it was Jason or the boy crying...or was it myself? Not sure.

Well Mark, the crying certainly was coming from our seat, maybe the one behind us. HAHA! Thanks for the fastpasses, btw. Kory absolutely loved it, and rode it three more time that day. Just wish I could have gotten Kaylee on it. It was certainly nice to meet you and your family. Glad you had a great time at POR.

To all the rest of the Dads, I have started on my trip report. It is in its' infant stages, but will try to not drag it out forever. Is it wrong, that I am trying to figure out a way to back in less than a year?

The major issue at hand is also the biggest reason to go again. My cousin is getting married in Atlanta next October, and we are planning on driving down for the wedding. We will already be 3/4's of the way to Orlando, so why not do it, if onlyfor a couple days. My DWs' exact words were "I hate you. LOL" when I mentioned it.
