YEAH for WL CL, Candace! it's great to have everyone happy and onboard! I bet your second stay will be just as magical.

You know me, I keep venturing out, and so far, nothing's beat my AKL CL stay!!
I am at work today -- my one work day between now and Jan 7 -- it is soooooo boring, there is really hardly anyone here, and the clock is ticking by sooooo slowly!
My DH department let him off early because there where more Sheriffs at the court house than civilians!!! LOL! so he surprised me, and we are going to have lunch together in about 5 minutes when I get coverage! -- nice treat!
My interview is on next Friday for the new job -- can we say NERVES?? I don't know -- I am starting to think about what that extra money could do for us! and it would be nice to be busy at work and not bored....we shall see what the new yr. brings.
Well, must sign off -- but wanted to stop by and say HI to my favourite people!!!
Happy Friday everyone!

The girls are psyched, and DH will be when I tell him (he's at work), he's the one who emailed me and said that if HE was planning the trip, we'd be "WL 7th floor"....

POR sounds great for a birthday weekend! We will be there the 18th through late on the 28th! We can certainly meet up!!
WLCL You know that is where you belong!!! YAY, I am glad you will be there the whole time we are there, we will figure it out (as long as this resie sticks, lol).

The only reason I am asking is b/c when I was pregnant with our first son I kept being sick with allergies and sinus infections. I went to an ENT and he said mine were at least half of what they should be. He wanted to do surgery while I was pregnant, but my OBGYN wouldn't sign off on it. For me, it's very rare for me to not have one side of my nose stopped up.

He does have nasal congestion, but his main symptom was his his stomach. About a year and half ago he started really complaining of stomach pain (and he never complains), many tests latter, we learned he had ulcers and an eroded stomach. It finally turns out that it was the allergic reaction to wheat causing all that destruction! And the allergist feels that it is also the cause for the nasal congestion. DH has a similar issue as you with his sinuses and the only reason he hasn't done the surgery is because we hear it is extremely painful

Fingers crossed for a massive raise!! If you did get to upgrade to a deluxe, would you keep it a secret or tell her?

Has anyone tried to use the My Disney Experience app? I tried adding our trip to it, and it says that what I enter is not valid. Then it got stuck on the screen where you enter that info and I had to delete it and re-install it.
Yeah, I would probably tell her since we cant do surprises with DS. Oh and that app drives me crazy, sometimes it pulls my stuff, sometimes it doesn't, and half the time it just shuts down on me. I think they rolled it out before they got all the glitches out.

Oh enjoy your lunch!!! I can only imagine how nervous you are for the interview, but I am sure you will do great! And oh I am sure you can find plenty to do with the extra money, that is definitely a big PLUS!!!!! Have a great one day of work and enjoy your time off!

As soon as I read your post, I remembered. Like I said, hopefully he won't have to do that test again in the near future, or even better, ever have to do it. I swear sometimes I think my brain wonders off without my body.

On the app, your doing better than I am if you can get it to work sometimes. Disney really needs to overhaul their IT department. If they spent a fraction of the money they spent purchasing Marvel and Lucasfilms on their IT department, it would be amazing. Maybe it's a good thing they are so terrible, though. It might make it easier for me to get a job with them as a computer programmer.

Don't you just love it when they go along with what you want? I think he's a keeper.


Well I was going to take the boys over to my sister's house to meet her new dog, Clancy, today. I just don't feel like getting out of my snuggle mound to go. I'm sitting in bed knitting in a pair of my Mickey PJs, and my pink bath robe with my huge stuffed penguin beside me. My mil & fil got me the penguin for Christmas. I have developed a bad habit since moving in with them of putting my hands in my arm pits while I sleep and squeezing until my hands fall asleep. When they do fall asleep, it wakes me up, I get feeling back in them, and then go back off to sleep. A little while later, I wake up again with the same problem. I have noticed the more stressed I am, the more it happens. They got me the penguin so that I hold it while I sleep and squeeze it, and it really works. I haven't woken up in the middle of the night from it, since they gave it to me Christmas Day. The only problem now is that the DH is jealous of a stuffed penguin. He wants me to squeeze him while I sleep, but he moves too much in his sleep. Plus I would have to lay on my left side, and I just can't lay on that side long before it starts hurting.

Yes he's definitely a keeper. Our 1st trip want it to be perfect and know Poly will make it magical.

I just got off phone with reservations 45 mins on hold and they took my number to call me back because of problem with computers said the number of guest in my party was not coming up right.

Melissa... We Went!!! We didn't have the day we originally planned though.

Plan was Boma Breakfast, MK afternoon parade, Plaza Dinner, and MK Fireworks.

Actual Day: Went to bed Xmas Eve sick, woke up Xmas morning even sicker. Didn't go to Boma because I couldn't speak or swallow. Laid on the couch watching the closing phases of MK, decided to switch dinner to something more laid back. Scored the Captain's Grille Christmas Dinner Buffet--which was beyond amazing (new Christmas tradition for us!). We walked over to DHS, shopped around, watched the lights. Took the bus to the Contemporary and walked over to MK for Holiday Wishes. Went to the Frontierland Pin Store, walked around, WALKED RIGHT ON TO DUMBO AND THE BARNSTORMER!!! No wait! Then I threw in the towel and told him I was too sick and had to go home. I tried to brave it since it was Xmas, but I couldn't

Since then--traffic has been a mess around town. I went to work the morning of the 26th, left early because I was sick, and it took me over 90 minutes to get home (14 miles). I haven't been back to work since and am out until Monday--I have massive infection attacking me! I am a little stir crazy and managed to get a Via Napoli tonight. Pizza and gelato should cure just about anything. Right?

I hope everyone had an amazing holiday!! Love to all!!

2phone calls and nearly 2 hrs on the phone with Dis. They had to have a support person help with my 2 reservations because the names had disappeared off ressie, you would think Disney would have a better system.

Anyway changed ressie to 2 nights POR and 6 nights Poly.

Hi RCers! Happy New Year a bit early.

I'm way behind here, but I'm back reading and trying to catch up.

Jenny, Yay for the Beach Club! I think like there usually are rooms left for sometime after the Visa CC folks book. Fingers crossed for a nice discount! I loved hearing about your dd's and their new American Girl dolls. So sweet!

Melissa, I hope your son is feeling better. That patch test looks like it hurt. Ouch! Just noticed your trip is right around the corner! You guys deserve a nice relaxing break.

Mousemommy, Your girls were darling by the tree with their new dolls. Glad they had availability at WL for you.

Letthewookie, Jenny, We love musicals, too. I can't wait to see the Les Mis movie. We have tickets for when the traveling company comes here soon.
We haven't seen Wicked yet, but have tickets for that later in the year. Often our Christmas gifts to each other are show tickets.

Chimo2u, Sending lots of encouragement and good luck wishes for your job interview.


Waving hi to Missoutandabout, Janet, Kook, GG, Junglecruiser, Minnie, Disneydreamin, Pas, I Heart, Padawans, Pixarmom, Basketlacey, Letthewookiewin, Sjs314, Dettigsgal, Luv, Debrn, and other friends I missed.

Ginny: I just called to get a quote with the promo....no I can't book it yet but the figure they told me was the same as my calculations! So we should save about $800 if I can get though on Thursday! Happy New Year!

Hi to everyone else.....where are all our other RCladies? Probably still cleaning up from Christmas?

Our Dear Sarah, now an Angel in Heaven....

I’m very sad to have to let you all know that our wonderful, sweet, courageous Sarah (JungleCruiser) has passed. She did so peacefully with her husband Jon, and her 2 daughters Stephanie and Cynthia, by her side. They had Disney music playing, and they know she heard the music as she squeezed her daughter’s hand when wishes came on.

She was an upbeat, positive, caring person, who didn’t dwell on her illness, instead focused on living her life fully every day. Jon sent me an email and in it he said he couldn’t relay how much she so enjoyed talking and communicating with her DIS friends and how much she was looking forward to Disney and seeing us there.

She was a dear friend to me and I l will miss her greatly.

Her family is in the process of arranging a memorial service and her daughter Stephanie will pass along the details which I will share with you all. I set up a thread on the community board so we (and her all her DIS friends), can share our thoughts and memories of Sarah.

She's with God now and free of her pain. Please keep her family in your hearts and prayers.
