Sandy, woohoo for the Osbourne lights and leaving so soon. Really, the weather should be fine for most of your stay. I have personally never seen the castle lights. LOL, so dont feel so bad.

Have a fabulous trip! And remember, free wi-fi now, so please report in if you can.

Hello Lauren! Happy New Year to you too! I'm Lynette. I used to post here pretty regularly, but these days I pop in here pretty infrequently (despite my efforts to the contrary) and these ladies are always very friendly and welcoming!

Some of the regular posters here (including the thread mama) are on vacation at the moment, so the thread won't have its usual activity. But these are some of the nicest people on the DIS. Want to tell us about yourself?



Marita, got that tree down yet? The kids and I deChristmasified the house yesterday, and DH removed the outside decorations too. He took the real tree out for trash collection, but the artificial tree is still standing (nekkid!) in the living room, waiting to be deported to the basement. It looks so sad and dark.

Sandy, thanks for the positive 2012 vibes! Things are off to a pretty fantastic start. I pray they continue this trend, and improve for some others here as well!

MommyP, I saw you over on the YES thread. If you haven't yet taken advantage of one of the classes, you're in for a treat! The class Boris and Natasha took in 2010 was lots of fun, and you just cannot beat the discounted tickets! I know that at least one of BBN's littles took a class last summer, and that class got great reviews from them as well.

Mony, sorry about your DH's friend. It's so hard to deal with the loss of people so young, isn't it?

Pumba, it's THAT time of year again for you and me, isn't it? Cold, cold, COLD! We had the oil man deliver earlier today, and even with the discounted cash price, it really puts a dent in our wallet! How many days until summer?????????

Hey Lynette! Glad to hear it.

Well, let's see. I'm Lauren. (Surprise! Hahaha) I'm married to my wonderful husband and we have 2 sweet & crazy kiddos. Our son is 4 years old, starts Kindergarten in the Fall (oh my gosh -- I can't believe it's THIS year!) and our daughter is 10 months old. I'm currently in the process of getting my real estate license and I'm super excited about it. Anxious and nervous, too.

WELCOME INDEED!

as been reported many have drifted - but somehow this new year, we are converging again! I need my imaginary friends! :group hug:

I'm Sandy - I have 3 kids - DS 26 (he just got divorced, no kids married 2 years, he's hard of hearing) DS 24 just got engaged, they live in Chicago, he just started a job downtown with trading stocks - he gave us a scare 2 years ago now, he fell in college, but he's all healed - I appreciated my internet friends... and DD 15 - just started High school... teenager. 'nuff said! DH just started a job He is a big volunteer in the Boy Scouts (both boys are Eagle Scouts, and now he trains adult leaders) and he likes to run, and climb mountains! I like to read, knit, watch reality tv, knit, advocate for my kids, oh, and we have 2 dogs!

And we're going on to DISNEYWORLD! In 24 hours we'll be in Orlando

Marita you're so funny! I wondered how PJ was doing! Its ok to have the tree up - at least till 12th night (or ours will be up till I get home!) There's always next weekend! I will have the laptop, and dh will be napping, (running 39.3 miles, must get up at 3am!) so I'm sure I'll get on and bore you all!! DISNEY, we're going to Disney

Lynette that's a prayer we all can get on board with! In His Mercy! (and I do so hope that mayan calendar is off - can you imagine the end of the world Dec 21, 2012? What would you do? (we survived 11/11/11, why not 12/12/12? )

DH is packing. I finally did my hair. I think I need more time - I can see a few grey hairs I'm babysitting the dogs - DD is studying for finals...

Lauren!

Hi I am Monica. I have been away for awhile but it resolutioned, ya its a made up word, to check in more often.

I have four kids. 15, 13, 7, and 4. My oldest has Asperger's but we are smooth sailing at the moment, last year at school was a nighmare!!!!

I am a special education major and have 2 semester's left until I gradutate!

This has been a looooong time coming.

I ran a day care for 14 years and closed the doors this summer so I could focus on finishing school. I teach catechism and I am involved in a ministry at my church that helps pregnant women facing a crisis pregnancy.

I just started to substitute teach and start my pre-student teaching this semester. I didn't get placed yet Sandy, school is still out for that district, but she mentioned a resource room at a very close elementary. I would love that!

I deChristmasfyied today. I even thoroughly cleaned the living room. I can now comfortably sit in that room.

Tomorrow I tackle the Kitchen.

School starts next week and I go through this I have to clean my house phase, it is like what you do right before you deliver a baby. LOL!


Oh Mal is selling Girl Scout cookies if anyone is interested. You can even donate a box to the service men and women overseas.


Mal got Just Dance for the Wii and I can't move my arms without them hurting. But it is a great way to get some exercise in while playing with my girls.

Pumba: I don't miss that. I sometimes wouldn't even get a phone call for my no shows. So many mornings I woke up real early for nothing. Not N-E more! ~that's how Maddy says "any".

Marita, I am readig Neb's TR, I am on like page 35, so behind, but I am trying.

Yea! Revenge is on tonight!

Welcome!

I'm MommyP, I have 6 kids(as seen in my signature, but they are all like 2 years older than that now. haha) We live in Florida, but not close enough to WDW! I homeschool and am pretty much losing my mind on a daily basis.


We are LOVING this cold weather down here. It never gets as cold here as in Orlando, but it was 64 in the house this morning, so I put the heat on for a couple hours. When Chad left for work at 6:30 he put extra blankets on us all.

Have you all been faithfully signing up for the new LAME Disney promo to try and win a free trip? I have even though I'm pretty sure it won't cover a family my size.

Did anyone send Twinkiemama and Utahmama PM's with direction to the new digs?

Time zooms by, doesn't it? My kids are 12 and 10 (as you may have noticed by my siggie), but I'm not quite sure how that happened!

The kids and I de-Christmasified the house on Monday after suppah, but DH is sick and is being a man-child, so he didn't take the boxes down to the basement until tonight. You know how men are when they're sick!

I have been faithfully entering for the new craptastic promo. What a letdown, huh?

I haven't PM'd either Twink or Wendy. Mony, did I see that you sent Wendy the info? I can PM Twink if no one has done it yet. And BBN too, just in case she wants to pop in.

You're in Disney World right now and I'm jealous! I hope yall are having a blast!

Hi gang! thanks for the heads up on FB! Our computer died. We went to get a virus removed and the technician said our hard drive would be going out soonishly. Unfortunately soonishly was two weeks later. No money in the budget for a new computer right now so I have been using my phone for all my internet needs. It is soooo much easier to pop in on FB than to log in here on my phone.


It is nice to see so many people on here and like Celery, I had completely forgot that poem! Too funny. It brings back some great memories of our little gang.


Welcome to Lauren Elizabeth. Nice to meet you. The weird thing is the Lauren who used to post here was named Lauren Elizabeth too (that was not her username though). When I first saw you I thought it was her under a new name.


My name is Elisabeth too. Obviously spelled with an "s". I have 4 kiddos. My daughter is 18, and my boys are 16, 13, and 11. I am somewhere in my thirties and I work as a nurse. I used to work exclusively on the mom/baby unit but now I flip back and forth between mom/baby, womens medsurg, and pediatrics. We are active in lots of sports in this family and of course we love Disney!


Hope all of you are well. I will try to pop in with more regularity. Maybe it will be my New Years resolution. lol

Morning everyone..
WE are heating up today...(hopefully) It is 18 now and some where I read it may go up to the high 30s or low 40's ...may get Ava out and take a fast walk..

Hubby didnt go to work today...he has a cold and talks funny....I shall stay away from him....When he called into work, he said when he finds the one that gave it to him he will kiss him on the mouth and slip him the tongue....then the supervisor said that would be so and so....HAHAHHA...I guess a few are already out with the germ...

Hope you all have a great day..
HELLO BABYNURSE and hello L jack....glad to see you guys again....see I AM STILL HERE...
