Just picked up some more things for Thanksgiving. Seems to have sneaked up on us so quickly this year.
I am taking it easy today. Dishwasher needs to be unloaded so the sinks full of dishes can be loaded and laundry is sitting in the dryer. I am waiting for older DS to get home to do it all and it is killing me!!!!!!! I am not good at being an invalid.

Glad you're trying to take it easy ... but are you sure you're not a nurse, too? Bad patient, bad patient! (Funnily enough, I have all of those exact same things to do here! I have not a single reason why I'm not doing them though. Unloading the dishwasher is my absolute least, LEAST favourite chore ... ever. Once kiddo gets tall enough, that's her first real-deal chore. )

Hiya Linda!

I love your plan! Now, will you purposefully forget something to torture him? Our shops have been absolutely crazy since the weekend.

Hope you are feeling better today.

I am in my pre-holiday funk not sure how I am going to get around to start packing for the trip plus DMil who has not gone to the Dr since Dec of '09 must be feeling poorly since she went yesterday and is finally back on her BP meds blood work will not be back until Monday so I just have a really bad feeling I been harping forever to Bob to get her to go see the Dr but where his Mom is concerned he is like a little boy and won't push her. My God she is 79 it is time he mans up. Ok vent over

Oh boy, men!!! Well hopefully her bloodwork will come back and shed light onto while she isn't feeling well. Take one day at a time and when you feel up to it just start making a few packing piles

Good morning, from yes, the Library . As much as I miss TV, I have to say no Internet is the tough one! I have retaught myself how to play Backgammon, Hearts and so on. I guess this is what we did in the "good old days"

babyberger, hang in there, it will get better. Just let other people help you and get excited for Disney!

sjs, I know the Holidays are hard, plus add in your MIL and her issues. UGGG. Sending you lots of hugs!!! You are getting close to your trip, I would imagine the pas girl's photos that Janet posted would get you excited. Seeing that Castle lit up, the beautiful decorated trees, the food...all good! .

miss, my DH retired a number of years ago, at an early age for retirement. Over the first year or so there were a number of household chores he took over (trying to be helpful), one being doing the dishes and loading and unloading the dishwasher. Now he thinks he is the only one who can do the job correctly, ha, who am I to argue?!

DetTigsGal, you are your way! Thanksgiving at WDW . Look forward to hearing about your trip!!!

Jenny, yay for getting the ADRs you wanted!

Grumpy Grandma, glad you found your phone! Sounds like you are cooking for Thanksgiving. I love the family time of the holiday, but the grocery store, UGGG. I will be there tomorrow morning.

I am sure pas is busy now that she is home, but looking forward to hearing about her trip!

to everyone I missed!

Hi everyone!

Sarah: Yes, in the good ole days we had lots more conversations too didn't we??? Hope you are feeling good these days...

Miss: Yes DH is over that dreaded 'man flu', it wasn't pretty! And yes I heard him say a couple of times 'you don't care about me!!' Yes I do care, but boy sometimes he needs to just suck it up a wee bit!

DetTigGal: Oh yeah baby!! Have an amazing trip!!

Sheila: Hope all is well with MIL.

Melissa: So glad to hear you are having a better day...hugs

Well, I am off to a Girl Guide 'mom and Me' sleepover with DD6 tonight. Lots of crafts and games and a nature hike in the morning. I am not exactly the most crafty person, but I will try my best!! I have to look at it as good bonding time for her and I. We don't get too much time alone.

Before that though we are seeing Wreck it Ralph this afternoon...I am excited!

Have a good weekend all.

Jen

I have a change to report!!!

So, I've been absent for a couple of days...we've just been very busy. DD8's musical - The Velveteen Rabbit, is in full swing!! We saw the show today and are very proud of our (not so) little girl!

Anywho, we have decided to make a change to our trip....
We have decided....because we are spending sooooo much on Christmas, plus we both need tires for our cars ....we will be staying in a royal room at POR!!!

I have not told the girls as they have said they will just have the resort be a surprise. DH and I are happy with the $1300 savings!!! I was also surprised that I could get a standard view room because when I had called about POR several weeks ago they only had river view available, which ate into the savings.

Also funny...at the end of my conversation with "Buck" he says "nooooooo way"...I was alarmed and he started to laugh...he said..."we have spoken before...I helped you with a Magical Express issue back in August"

I told him I call a lot and that's bound to happen, he said that there was quite an extensive file...and that he was glad to help me again...

So, POR, here we come!! Oh, and our reservation is PIF!!!!

Great change and yay for PIF!

I've been eyeing POR myself. We could save over $1100 by changing our ONE GF night to POR. My head knows I should change, but my heart isn't letting me just yet.

Wow!!! I haven't looked but that GF room must be expensive!!!

I don't think I could ever bring myself to pay that much, I wish I could!

We are planning on this trip being pretty park intensive with the FLE at MK and Test Track reopening, etc...so POR is a good fit for us not planning on being around too much.

It's a very "grown up" decision...

I think we are going to have an amazing trip regardless!! My girls will LOVE the royal rooms!

DD8 has finished 3 out of 4 of her shows!!! Tomorrow is the last day and I am sooooo excited!!! Then we will only have to juggle between basketball and gymnastics!!!

We saw the show today and it was great!!!
