Well, we have a holiday here today, and DH and I went wild cleaning the upstairs and moving the DD's bedroom furniture around. It just feels to good to '"really" clean, most times I just to a quick surface cleaning! Anyway, still in my PJ's too!!

Just have to wait for the refund for the pkg onto my CC, and then will get the AP's!! Wow, looking at those POR rates was a bit shocking!
I made a fantastic dinner last night in my pressure cooker and it was a smash hit. Everyone loved it, and it was all whole foods. I was pleased. That recipe is staying in rotation! It was Hawaiian BBQ chicken. I've been doing pretty well. I usually do very well with lifestyle changes. In my early 20's I went vegan. Then I downgraded to vegetarian. Now I eat meat. I just want the blender to get here already!!!

They think whatever was wrong reset itself and will hopefully be ok.

About 1 AM, as we were getting ready for bed, I realized there was a flaw in my ADR plan. The day I have planned to go to the MK (a Tuesday) is a day they usually have MNSSHP and we'll have to leave the MK at 7 PM. The only other day, I think I can swap with it is Thursday, but then that will have us going to the MK two days in a row (when you include going to MNSSHP).
Glad it was easily resolved.

I wouldn't count MNSSHP as technically being a MK day since it's a totally different experience.

Have fun with the Vitamix... sometimes DH will grind his own meat and the burgers taste fabulous! If we had more time he would love to cook more.. he is thinking of taking a cooking class as there is a culinary institutue opening up quite near us.

As my luck would have it.. was driving to the Y on Sat morning and got pulled over... knew exactly as our inspection had expired in December (just realized it on thursday)... the officer was nice about it when I explained my appt was for that day.. got off with a warning, and had to have the mechanic fill out a form to prove I had the car inspected.... but no ticket!!

You are so sweet! I think Sam is the most "together" person in the family! She just seems to be handling everything well right now...hopefully this will continue. She is focused on eating healthy and excersiving and hope this will always be part of her lifestyle.

After Howard takes his class send him right on over to my house. Send Sam too! She and I can have smoothies and do yoga.

I think booking two separate cruises was some sort of omen!

AirTran did me the favor of changing my April flights so I parlayed that into adding a day. I wanted to fly in on Sunday anyway, but the flights were double the cost so I went with Monday. I know they get a bad rep for changing, but I love it! It always seems to work in my favor.

Now the question is, do I just add another YC CL day, or do something special and make that our anniversary celebration night?



Dani - I cracked up when I saw the cruise booking issue. I'm glad they got it straightened out!

That's fantastic!!! If you made it your anniversary celebration, what would you do?

That's what I told the CM!

Kiddo is off today so we've been running around doing schtuff. (Schtuff has included me gluing bits of balsa wood together for a bird house. I really hope no birds decide to take up residence as I'm sure it's not up to code. )

On the AP Front: Nothing ... yet, but I think he's keen we've just not had a chance to talk about it. Going to go gather more pricing (a.k.a ammunition).

I swear, if I see that stinkin' Budweiser Clydesdale commercial one. more. time!
I ordered it. It should be here next week sometime. I am REALLY pumped to get it in my grubby little paws! I also found a woman who is an independent demonstrator (like at Costco and Whole Foods) and I got the dry container for $100 (a $44 discount) and she threw in a free set of spatulas. I also got free shipping and it comes with a whole grains cookbook. I can't wait to grind my own flour and coffee. Daniel is SO not excited about this lifestyle change.

August was the absolute most crowded I have ever experienced the parks being, and I have gone over Easter break a few times. I remember one day pas' DH didn't want to go to the parks because of the crowds. It was pretty intense! I am looking forward to lower crowds in October!

Hi ladies, just finished laughing here watching a comedy show here called "This hour has 22 minutes" It makes fun of a possible Canadian Pope...just thought I would share a laugh. Hope not to offend anyone...we really do love our Tim Horton's!

look at the video around 1 Min 21 sec, I think there is an advertisement first.

Hey Jen, I gave it a shot, but all it said was that the content is currently unavailable. I'll give it a try again later, sounds fun!
About Canadian shows, we laughed until we cried some years back watching the series, "The Tournament." It was hilarious!!

Yep sis...I remember that too I think that's why he has little desire to return,,,the whole been there done that. Universal really spoiled us with the Express Passes. And I called Hard rock to confirm connecting rooms..they called the hotel directly and blocked the room to guarantee. They said this is not something they normally do...so the extra touches do help...

Ad I have a secret (not so secret) December trip...which my girls decided they want to go visit their friend Deena...and meet Mommy's friends we aren't telling Daddy yet

Hugs to all the sweet RCers!

I'm holding my breath, crossing my fingers, maybe we can use miles for a trip!
Will check in later, but if the dates will work for hubby, we may be able to book round trip on Delta at 25,000 miles each.

Good afternoon RC family. I spent the morning preparing a stew. It's now on in the crockpot and I'm cuddling up with Princess Fancy Pants. The Princess And The Frog is coming on so I hope she will watch it with me. I love that movie.

Her birthday presents I bought from the Disney Store sale are out for delivery today. I can't wait to try them on her!!!

Good morning ladies!



Dani: You know, all this talk about your Vitamix has got my curiosity piqued! You'll have to tell us all the good stuff you make with it once it arrives.

Wookie: Just noticed the bit you posted about MNSSHP. Like Dani said, I'd not worry about going two days in a row since you can relax the morning of the party -- then go over at 4pm.

Jen: LOL at the Tim Horton's thing. I've been to Toronto, Victoria Island and even saw them in Detroit ... never did I get a chance to try it!

Ginny: Let us knoooooooooow!

Pas: Pshaw, no worries busy momma! We're holdin' down the fort for ya.

~~------------------------~~

Can't seem to shake the ick my little petri dish shared with me. Eesh. She's almost 100% though! Darn kids and their uber-germs.

So, we stayed up until almost 2am talking about annual passes. (What is wrong with me?!) Hubbo, being the numbers nerd that he is, talked through the options as I entered them on a spreadsheet. We've basically sussed out that we need to go for at least nine days to make it "worth it" -- which is something we already kinda knew.

We ruled out the driving down bit since it would take two days out of the fun on either side of the vacation; long gone are the days of 18 hour drives straight through! He knows about the fall trip (though not where we're staying) and we've decided we want to go again in January -- so this leaves the question of when would we want to go again.

More questions for you ladies:

For those of you that go in summer and have been in the fall when school's in session... how do the crowds compare? Are they mega-ginormous in the summer? With the kiddo being taken out in October for that trip and for a day in January, we kinda decided that we'd not take her out again. Honestly, having gone to HS on January 3rd and Epcot on January 5th, the crowds weren't what we would consider unmanageable and we really enjoyed ourselves-- although, it WAS Epcot and HS ... and it wasn't the summer. Mind you, we'd steer clear of Labor Day and July 4th. Just not sure if the summer is totally or not. What do you summer pros think?

Dani - I hope you are having a great time snuggling with your little girl

Miss - Regarding the crowds in summer, honestly I think it depends on how you tour.

Ever since we became AP holders we dramatically changed how we work the parks. Basically we hit rope drop hard for headliners and our other must dos until lunch, relax pool side all afternoon and then do World Showcase in the evening. We have gone using this strategy over New Years, Thanksgiving week, and President's week as well as August and June. We did not accomplish any less then we have over September and mid-January when the parks were dead.

If you like to stay all day or don't like to get up early then I'd say you will notice a marked difference both in crowds and feeling like you may melt into the pavement. I still think you can have a great time, you will probably just stand in longer lines and need to manage staying cool (shows, restaurants, etc)

Good luck with your planning!

Waving to the rest of you loverly ladies
