Have you called to check on Poly Cl? What about that split? If you ever need a little encouragement to make a change just ask. I may not be a changer at the moment, but I am a great enabler.


Nope. I'm not even going to bother calling about the split. DH says no, no,NO!. So, that's that.

The only way I'm changing, possibly, is if Poly GV CL becomes available for all 10 nights....

Never say no mousemommy. You jinx yourself.

I was thinking about dropping a night off Wl( that's allowed apparently)and booking a night at AKL with Spring discount. My dh says they got rid of interline rate because I was driving them nuts. Ok maybe that's true, but they can't stop me. I will find a way.

Ok I have to go. My 8 year old is really distressed over the dog getting his balls cut off. Someday I will learn to keep my mouth shut.

Jen ((( 's))) to you! I pray nana's memory always brings a smile to your face and a hug to your heart when you think of her!

As to me and any Disney plans -- well, you all know I didn't get the big raise I was Hoping for with the new job, but my DS really wants to go to DL with his BF next Feb (thinking 2-7 or so) -- 4 days or 3 days at Disney, one day at universal and of course they heard that knotts berry farm is close / and perhaps 6 flags?? So one day at one of those coaster parks. Thing is -- on site is so expensive. I have always wanted to stay at DLH, concierge level of course! But by golly, it's costly! My son says he doesn't care if we stay offsite, he just wants the rides and DTD! I am all worried I will miss the magic if I don't stay at DLH on site! I priced GCH Dvc rental, and it's just as costly/ no club level, so if I was to pay that money, I'd go for DLH for the boys. Offsite I am thinking of embassy suites....or home wood suites? They at least have a good hot free breakfast! But I can't help but think how much I really want to stay on site! I'd love to make this trip a reality, as my last trip to the world left a sad feeling in my heart, even my DS didn't feel it in Oct. and he felt my friend kind if pulled the trip down. She did in a way, and I'd like to go to DL with my baby boy and his friend, and hopefully find some of that fun, magic and excitement back again! Don't know when I can book for Feb 2014, but I'm going to try and make it happen if I can! Budget, budget, budget

Thanks. Me too. I meant to call the doctor this morning to see if I could get in, but then I got side tracked by school, organizing some stuff I have been planning on for months, and spending money.

Good news here. DS8 and DS9 entered the school's PTA Reflections Visual Arts competition in the fall. I found out today that they placed 1st and 2nd overall and are both advancing to the State level.

I don't know where they get their talent and creativity because it is NOT from DH or I.
That is awesome!! Grats to them both.

Actually, right about the time I read this post earlier, it started bleeding again. I blew my nose and it just started right up. I meant to respond earlier, but as soon as I got it stopped, the DH pulled me into playing SW:ToR.

We just really aren't thinking about our trip at all right now. As soon as we get our taxes done, if we get a return, we'll look at the trip again. I'm willing to bump the resort down to the CSR if needed. We did our first value this last June (stayed at the Pop Century) and if all of the values and an equivalent to that, I'll never do a value. Then if they offer free dining, we don't have to upgrade to the DlxDDP. It'll just mean no Le Cellier and uber yummy mushroom risotto. Then instead of adding extra time to be able to do a few sight see'ing things on the way there, it'll just be a get there quick thing.

DH is emotionally exhausted, came home and slept for 3 hours.

That is all, DD8 still has many questions, as she put it "this was my first funeral mommy, of course I have questions!!" When I asked DD6 what she wanted to talk about, she said "Why oh why mommy....did I leave my juice box there???" DD4 was still asking "Ok, where was Nana, we didn't even see her!!" This is after we explained to her many times that Nana was now in heaven.

Well...that is all. Have a lovely evening all.

Jen
Give your DH a great big from me. My DH was freaking out before his grandmother's funeral because they talked about having it on Sunday, which would have been our wedding anniversary. Luckily, they had it on the Saturday instead. The hotel didn't have enough rooms, so we didn't take the DSs with us. They still have yet to go to a funeral, which I am glad they haven't had to.

I know this has been stressful, but the "show me the money" part really made me

Well we could take bets, but knowing us, we would just keep changing the option we wanted our money put on.

Your DH sound like mine about the split stay. You just need to add a heck into the "no" mix.

I wish I could help with the planning of a CA trip, but the closet I have been to the state is Las Vegas.

That is the plan I have for our trip, budget, budget, budget. We'll do the CR /w TPV as a graduation gift.

Well my iPhone was bugging me (I had the 4, not even the 4S), and I had an upgrade available. I needed to go to the store anyway, so I stopped in and upgraded my phone. I was going to keep my old one, but they offered me almost $140 for it. Which paid for me going from a 16GB to a 32GB. Now I just have to wait for Amazon to deliver....

I don't order a lot from Amazon, but I ordered two things and I paid to have it next day. For some reason, the items are being shipped separately and only one will get here tomorrow.

ETA.......
**Donald Duck style rant** OMG, I just check on the case and it won't be here until at least February 20, even though it shipped today. Why? Because it's coming from China!! What the heck?? I had no idea when you got something on Amazon it could be coming from China!! I am not happy at all. Plus I thought when I payed for the Next Day Air for the order, it covered both items not just the one. Plus it's coming from China!!

I actually left out the part where he told me that I could switch to the Poly and that he and the girls will stay at YC (I think he's serious)
He is just super excited about staying at an Epcot resort....walking distance from the World Showcase (and beer)

And anyways....why do I feel the need to change my reservation which would cost more which would mean not PIF anymore....I just like to spend money I think. Grrrr!

China..... It's hard to find something NOT from China these days...I've been trying harder to find Made in America products but its tough!
But the shipping shouldn't take that long!! When we purchased my iPad a year ago, through Apple, it came directly from China and I was shocked that it got here in 2 days!!!! (I didn't even pay for expedited shipping!)

I won't bore with my Universal "where the heck is my refund story". I have done enough complaining for one week. I'm going to try to have a more positive attitude. It only took about 45 minutes, but we found the money. 45 minutes out of my day is nothing.
I had quite an ordeal with Universal in 2010 I was never going back...ever...that was then...

Glad they found the mulah!!!

The boys must feel bad for the pup

You think all the CMs handling the interline rate quit...IMPRESSIVE

I was also looking at AKL...HRH said she wants to be close to the parks..I asked which park...she said all GF and Poly are not close enough...maybe a RV at the TTC

Your boys...poor things... My DS11 (12 tomorrow....is someone else having a birthday tomorrow ) still keeps asking about how Uncle Dennis and Jim are married. He gets it, but is curious still..that plus the "talk" geez TMI

Oh, I'm not surprised about it being made in China, just that it's being shipped from there. If I had known it was going to take that long, I would have bought something else. It's probably too late at this point. I'll just have to be super careful with the iPhone.

Good morning, ladies.

Jen: Was thinking of you guys yesterday. Big hugs to all of you... I loved the post you shared about Nana. She was clearly a special lady with a lot of pluck.

Melissa: I'm already doing this for those upcoming pics

Wookie: Ohhh, I love how Merida is at the top! We just watched Brave again on Monday. I was crying through a lot of it. My wee girlie was born in Scotland... they did such a good job with the "scenery" (and the voice acting) -- it gets me every time I see it.

Candace: Yeeeeees! I agree... no, No, NOOO to the split. Gonna do a little keep the YC dance now

Padawans: Last night, I read your post... and when I got to the "balls cut off" bit, I about died laughing.



Pas & I_Heart: Oh, I'm giggling at your "talks" too. Though, I'm not going to laugh too much since I know my time's coming. (She's already asked about babies and how they get inside of mommies. )

Lots of love to you ladies... Will check in on the happenings at the RC Insane Asylum later.

Miss - That pic is hilarious! I can't stop laughing. How cool is it that your DD was born in Scotland! I can see why you like Brave!

Mousemommy - So ummm, no splits for the DH, huh? That's ok. Just another reason to keep coming back to try out each resort.

Janet - That's awesome that our dates may overlap. I hope we can meet up again if you go!

wookie - Love the Iphone cover! I hope it gets here super fast. Sorry about the nosebleeds

pas - Are you still at WL?

chimo2u - Good luck planning that DL trip. I know nothing about it out there, but I really want to try it someday. DD1 is obsessed with watching the Youtube video of IASW with the Disney characters. So cute! I'd love to show her the real thing someday.

babyberger - So whatcha baking today? I'm hungry!


gwynne - You warmed up at all today? It's in the low 20's with sunshine here today and when I went out to get the mail I thought it felt great.

Hi to everybody else

Hi everyone! I am totally going to botch this without using multi quote! But here goes an attempt:

Marie - so sorry you didn't get the new job but excited that you get to stay PT. I would love to reduce my hours! Plus, you are still going to try for a trip - yay!

Pas - you have to help me understand how GF is $600 cheaper than WL. I thought WL was one of the cheaper deluxes and GF is the most expensive???

Jenny - hope all the girls are feeling better and you too!

Wookie - love the iphone case! I made a similar amazon blunder two days after Christmas. I ordered an ipod extender so Lilly's ipod would plug into her docking station with the otterbox style case on it. It still isn't here........ Nothing on the posting indicated it was coming from China. I think I have to give it until February 8 to get here.

padawans - so glad you are feeling at least part of the magic. Please don't be upset with me if I chuckle a bit while you fight to not be able to change your reservation between now and May - it will be laughing with love! At least you have YC - that's a great one! And I am totally expecting you to influence the other RC'ers.

iheart - congrats on the Art Contest!

MM - congrats on no changes You are going to love the EPCOT area! SAB is so awesome. Are both of your girls independent swimmers?

I know I am missing some that I wanted to comment on! I should have taken notes!

Hi to Janet, Ginny, Melissa, Dani, Deena; welcome Ali!

I priced DL today for Spring Break. I really want to hit one or the other for my bday. Wondering if DL will be less crowded? See, I am a RC wanna be. I won't book until I decide - isn't that crazy? I have to get it all figured out first so I am indecisive up front and then once I put my money in, I lock down! I have so many scenarios going right now! Need to look into airfare because that could definitely sway it.

I did book us at GWL for Valentine's Day. Just a quick little overnight followed by two nights at a hotel for a dance competition that happens to be in the same city.

thanks guys! I hope to make it work -- I live on the west coast of Canada, so DL is much closer and shorter flight... Also, for some reason, I find myself agreeing with my DS16 (Andrew) staying onsite at DL doesn't seem to be as imperative as it is for WDW -- and hey, if it's only to see it and do the rides, as long as we get there, who really cares where we stay! (a little part of me hopes I can swing DLH CL for our 3 nights) but I am keeping the hotel situation open-minded.
I think with 2 teens (17/16) we should be able to knock out all the best of DL/ DCA and Cars Land in 3 days. The boys want Knotts berry farm and Universal too, so I am looking at this trip as very different than our total immersion at WDW. Whatever gets us there without completely breaking the bank, is what in think I'll do, even if it means compromising some of my hotel snobby ways!
In FEB 2015 I'm planning to be all about the world again, as I promised Andrew and his GF a grad trip to WDW/ hoping for Kidani with the DLX DDP for that trip, and with airfare much higher priced, I've gotta save for that trip now too! So keeping DL as cheap as possible, without staying ghetto/ or sleazy roadside motel is the goal

Life, why does it have to get in the way of my RC Dis time

Kids had a half day today, took an extra one home with me today too One of DD's friend's mom is a teacher and went with the 5th graders on the Saftey Patrol trip to DC, so I offered to take DD's friend for the afternoon. We had to come home to wait for the garage repair man and now that the garage is fixed we are heading out to the park. It is a BEAUTIFUL day here in south Florida

Hope everyone is having a great day and staying warm! I'll try to do some catching up from the park

Melissa

Me too!! I love how Rapunzel is looking at her. That movie is greatness!! Even JM loves it, and he usually hates movies where the lead is a female.

Hopefully our RC Insane Asylum is in the Cinderella Suit in the MK and not Briarcliff. The DH and I watch American Horror Story and Braircliff is one place I do not want to be.

Hi to everybody else
Thank you, on both accounts. I called the doctor this morning to try and see him to get my prescription refilled. When I told him why I needed to see him, they said it would be a week until he would see me for that. It's not that he doesn't have any appointments until next week, he just won't see me until then. I told them I was totally out and needed to see him sooner. They told me to call the pharmacy, and get them to fax over a request to fill it for enough meds to get me through to next week. I am on two different ones, and I assumes they would write it for both. As I was typing the pharmacy called and said they only have one of them for me. ugh!! I can't wait for this week to be over. Last night the DH had such a bad day he was drinking Cuervo straight, tonight I may be doing that.

I called my mom and talked to her about it. She sells pre-cut quilt squares and yo-yo's on Ebay and ships stuff all around the world. She said to not be surprised if it doesn't get here no sooner than two months, and to not count on the earliest date of February 20th.

**said in her best Yoda voice** RC before you book, RC after, matters not. RC'ing it still is.

Honestly, I do both. Before I book, I go back and forth between different resort. After I book, I change several times, until the DH gets so sick of it he threatens to cancel the trip.

Can't you stay in a "good neighbor" hotel, and it be cheaper than an "on site" DL resort and still get the DDP? I don't know if the DDP would be needed or not at DL. The DL one seemed more confusing than the WDW one.

Wookie: Ohhh, I love how Merida is at the top! We just watched Brave again on Monday. I was crying through a lot of it. My wee girlie was born in Scotland... they did such a good job with the "scenery" (and the voice acting) -- it gets me every time I see it.

Candace: Yeeeeees! I agree... no, No, NOOO to the split. Gonna do a little keep the YC dance now

Padawans: Last night, I read your post... and when I got to the "balls cut off" bit, I about died laughing.

Pas & I_Heart: Oh, I'm giggling at your "talks" too. Though, I'm not going to laugh too much since I know my time's coming. (She's already asked about babies and how they get inside of mommies. )

Lots of love to you ladies... Will check in on the happenings at the RC Insane Asylum later.
I love that picture!!!!!
That's so cool miss m was born overseas!!!

You are totally right with rack rates. My WL is with 20% off..but there's a TA offer for GF that is about 50% off with some date tweaks....however I'd have to talk some into going or not ask and just do....
