Hey Marie!

I think that if you did the best you can, then whatever happens is what is meant to be. I think you'll probably find peace in whatever happens, right?

I hope you don't have to wait long to find out. Waiting is the worst!

I hope the time flies by. I hate waiting for news like that. I'm sure you did great. No matter how it went, I' m sure there are things you could look back on and wish you had done different. You know the saying about hindsight being 20/20, right? If it' s meant to be, it will be .

So you're working all night and then going out for breakfast with our Janet? Don't fall asleep on her stack of cakes. Are you both going to Sarah's memorial together? That would be so nice.

Be careful out there my friend and recap, please Linda!!

Those patients....never stopped!!! Hubs let me sleep yesterday! Had a WONDERFUL breakfast with Janet We were there 3 hours I think I am on a diet so no pancakes

I am hopeful I can catch Janet tonight but I have to be at work at 7pm...so I have to figure travel times out...it's not too far from my hospital I don't think

You Can get CL rooms for 300.00 a night or less. The resorts are nicer than Disney's. The negatives are no fridges in the rooms, a fee for parking, a fee for the health club if your not staying CL, and the cost of drinks at the pool barClub level is the way to go.
We had a family pow wow over our Summer trip....

here's the votes....

Me: WDW one week...June August, anytime...(with value season...leaning to August...again...

Hubs: Universal One week August

DS11...Universal

HRH: 6 nights Universal HRH CL or RPR CL, 5 days WDW...anywhere CL

DD6: WDW AoA Nemo or POR RR

DD5 The Castle and Universal

DS4...we didn't ask

So I am thinking with the stay more save more...I can get HRH CL for less than rack rate at WL SV...SO as of now...I am thinking BLT 2 BR for 4-5 nights then HRH CL for 5 nights...or vice versa....

But we are definitely doing Universal again

We haven't been in years...since we lived in Orlando and that was like 12 years ago. In all seriousness, it does sound quite nice and something that the kids would enjoy....and DH, since the price would be a bit lower $300 sounds like a huge deal after paying Disney CL prices! I'll have to get the hubby on this and start pricing things out. Thanks for the info
Heather, see above....my last 2 WDW trips converted into US/IoA trips...it's the express passes and pool hopping that makes their on site hotels appealing...the prices...Royal Pacific is priced like a WDW moderate and it's beautiful (but it's not WDW )

Back last night. Kiddo off to school this morning. Now, I'm just sitting here trying to make my brain work again. So far, it's not working as planned.

Missed you ladies! Sorry for not checking in more. Those of you leaving or about to, safe travels. Thanks for all the kind words about Miss M. She did save the half of that milkshake for later. Seriously. I guess at that point it was more of a chocolate milk-shake. So, we had two tributes to our lovely Sarah: once at Beaches & Cream and once over at The Fountain (in the Dolphin).


What a whirlwind. Shew. (I love these little short trips though; they seem to work best for us.) As for the YC, wow... what can I say? Now, it doesn't have the grand lobby of lots of the other hotels but it's a serious contender now for us between YC and BC. (I think it'd boil down to which had a standard view available. We spend absolutely zero time out on the balcony so it doesn't really matter about the view.) The Christmas decor was still up at the YC&BC as well as over at the Boardwalk Inn. Very pretty. Back to the YC: It was very quiet and calm compared to the hustle and bustle of the BC. Not much between them though for us, I'd say. Since we walked over to the S&D twice to eat and it's a bit closer to the dock, it's got those two things as minor advantages to us but staying there at either the BC or the YC is just the bee's knees for our little trio.

We didn't do MK this trip since the thought of those crowds put us off. We did HS one day and Epcot on another with a down day in between. Saw the Osborne Lights for the first time which were FABULOUS! I was not feelin' the Christmas "thing" being that it was after Christmas. (It's a weird thing... come the evening of the 25th I'm kinda feel like the air has been let out of my Christmas balloon. Mind you, the trees are still up. ) Anyhow, I wasn't feelin' it... until I saw those lights at HS. WOW! Lovely.

Another first for us was Fantasmic! Jen: You've GOTTA take the girls next time; they'll LOVE it. Just like our RCing experts said, we only got in the line roughly 30 mins beforehand and had perfect seats. Even with the park being super-packed. It was very worth it.

It was so lovely meeting I_Heart. She pulled a Mission Impossible and snuck us up to CL so Miss M could get one of those beloved sugar cookies with the MM sprinkles on them. What do they put in those anyhow? She finds them totally irresistible. Thanks for the pin too, I_Heart! She's put it up on our board already. (Wanted to pick your brains about the parks and resorts more but didn't want to hog your time.)

The weather was pretty wonderful, for the most part. We got to swim twice. Only drizzly-rained on us one day, only a bit chilly on one day, too.

So, the hubs ... I adore that man ... he up and says to me when we were both being mopey before getting on the ME to take us back to the airport yesterday, "And here's where we get on the bus to plan our next trip." *SWOON* I'm not sure when ... but he wants to go back as much as I do.

Can you smell the wood burning, ladies? I'm already getting in "plan-mode." Be prepared to have your brains picked over time of year, etc.

Cookies have to wait....on hold with, well let's just say you are all familiar with the hold music, lol! Looks like I just may be able to move my trip by a day so we can do Wed-Sun instead of Thur-Mon. The rates have changed A LOT so need to see what CRO can do for me.

Good morning


Marie: I agree with everyone... you did your best, don't look back and second guess yourself. Things happen for a reason and if the position goes to someone else, it may be because there will be another job down the line that may be perfect for you. If you do get it, just think of all the positives...more challenging work, busier environment, newer facilities, ability to take some additional trips with the bigger paycheck, etc. Waiting is difficult but use that time to plan that DL trip!!

Padawans.... no on that tree coming down by Wednesday.... I half attempted Saturday night but DD insisted it stay up... so who was I to agrue?? I have a lot other things to do before 4 am on Wed.
