Hi Memom, your #1 lurker fan here! I have read ALL of your trip reports so far and LOVE them! You have such awesome adventures! I am happy to hear the good news about the woman that was in the ski accident. One of my newphews was in a car accident March of last year and was told he may never walk again and they were WRONG! Its so nice that one can share their joys and sorrow here on your TR. I have prayed, laughed and cried with you many times so here is where i came to ask for prayers for a friend of my nephews and his wife. Their friend was out one night with what he thought was a friend and some others when out of the blue they jumped him and severley beat him. He has some serious head trauma and is in need of many prayers. It's such a horrific story. So if i can come out of lurking and ask for healing prayers for Matt, he needs all he can get! Never underestimate the power of prayer.

I think in March, I will pull them out and take pictures of their backs. Are they named and dated, or just named? I am curious. Kay will probably walk away from me when I am doing this. I won't blame her.
They just have the names BIG on the backs - did not see a date or anything else.

I am sure I got some odd looks when I took pictures of them or exclaimed loudly in the lobby - "Oh look the creepy chairs are out"

You can definitely ask, and you will get thoughts and prayers from very fine people who visit here and who truly care about others. As you see, it didn't take long for you to get your first response. So sorry to hear that he was involved in such a situation.

I am happy to read about anyone who has overcome the odds with a bad accident. Everybody is thrilled that there is upper body movement, because they weren't sure of that at first. Now, she's determined to move her lower body, too.

I'll try not to act too crazy. I am not known for talking loudly (just the opposite, actually) but I may embarrass Kay enough by just taking some of the pictures I do. She'll be the one to say LOUDLY, "Why in the world are you taking pictures of a doorknob?" or some such thing. She thought I was strange taking pictures of the sweets case in The Confectionery one time. What's strange about that?

So great Lindy is showing some movement. The mind is powerful and can see her through this. Keeping up the prayers, they don't hurt either.

I can take temperatures in the 50's. I prefer not to dip into the 40's, and the 30's are just out of the question.







************************************

For those keeping up with people who have been on our mind here, they took the three year old girl off of life support yesterday. She passed away in the early evening. This family has lost a loving grandmother and a little girl right on the heels of celebrating the new life of their baby boy. Life can sure throw some unforeseen twists and turns. Pray for strength and comfort for them.

As for Lindy, the girl in the ski accident, she is in a rehab hospital and will be for 2-3 months. They are trying to stimulate muscle power with electric stim, from what I understand. They have hooked her up with some sort of eating apparatus, so she is feeding herself for the most part. Her husband and son are still with her. I don't know what plans are, if any, for bring the baby back here to stay with relatives off and on, but I know he is a big part of her desire to work hard and reach her maximum potential. Reports are that her spirits are still amazing!
Right now, I'm doing my best to raise my GPA as much as possible and reach my goal SAT/ACT score. I've narrowed it down to 5 schools- FSU and UCF are my top choices. The other three are to see about scholarships/backups.
I think UCF is my number one. I apply in August and hear from FSU in December and the others are rolling, so they can tell me whenever they want, but probably around October. I got my course card today to pick classes for next year, senior year! It's crazy! I feel like I chose my freshman classes yesterday.

I'm so sorry to hear about the woman who lost her mother and child. I can't even imagine! I'll be keeping them in my thoughts. That's great to hear about Lindy.

Chad's latest update says there are still some blood pressure issues, and when she sits up, she gets lightheaded and dizzy. Mostly he says they are moving forward, but of course there are some down moments in every day. At Christmas, they were a young, active family taking every happy moment life was giving them, and in one morning's ski outing, things changed for them forever. I feel like she is being as positive as she can, but I'm guessing the shock is now wearing off and the reality is setting in.

Hope you get the perfect college situation for your needs and wants. Senior year will fly, so get ready for college to be here before you can blink very many times.

From our prime viewing spot, the gang loaded up light-up toys, towels, drinks, etc. to go see Marc and Anita's lodging.

Here's a fuzzy picture of the group on the way into Beach Club.



Mickey, Mickey everywhere.



Can you pick out their room?



Chelsea found little friends to sit with.



A tour of the bathroom.



View from the balcony.



Anita showed Jackie how they kept their drawings. Great idea!



This was taken in the car as M, A, and B took us back to Pop Century.



I had been asked by someone on the Pop Century Resort thread to get a picture of the TV stand and fridge for informational purposes. This was the last night, so this was the perfect time to clean the fridge out and take the pictures.







That's it for this morning. Have a Tremendous Tuesday, all!

I have to relate a funny Caroline story to you all.

I went and saw them this weekend, and her dad (my brother) said that on Thursday night, she told him she wanted to show Aunt Katie her Minne Mouse PJs. He said "How do you know Aunt Katie likes Minnie Mouse?" To which she replies, "Dad, Aunt Katie likes EVERYTHING Disney World!"

That's my girl!

I am super excited about staying at Beach Club in March! Not sure what kind of view we will have, but I will love whatever it is.

That's a great way to keep your drawings. I have never done one, although we have talked about doing them several times. It would just be too hard to do with the little girls. Brooklynn would enjoy it, but she's also a bit of a perfectionist, and she might be a little too hard on herself if hers didn't turn out the way she wanted it to. Of course, then she could just look at mine, and she'd feel all better!

Is there a certain view that you might like for our Beach Club villa? I think I might be able to put in a request with a certain someone and see what we get....

All of the struggles and sadnesses remind me to be grateful for every 'normal' day, as in one minute, my normal could change forever.

Beach Club is awesome already, and when they want to add free watermelon to a visit there, I am beyond happy with that!

You know I don't care. You get whatever view you like, and we will just be happy to be there.

Anita that IS a great idea for your drawings.

We have never done the drawings. My DH is a wonderful artist. We have a pic of a fisherman that he drew in our living room & me I have a hard time drawing stick figures.

We are bracing for a storm here on Friday. They say it could be the biggest one in a few years!!

Have a great day.
