Too funny, Janet - just about to spill Jeanette's WL beans, too. Happy birthday, Brian!!

Lulu'sMom: I was so happy to see you posting to the WL thread and here, too. I just LOVE your new signature and ticker. I can't wait to see a pas130/Lulu'sMom RC meet-up photo. Can you have a Lapu Lapu?

Hello to all RC posters and lurkers alike - have a great weekend

I just realized what the sound was not too long ago -- after being perplexed for a couple of months every time my (normally completely quiet) PC made a random noise. So, with that mental hurdle out of the way, every time I click on their latest offer, it seems to be to Greater Sticks or Boondock City.
Miss, it took me quite a while until I found out my car's "ding" was the signal that my gas tank was low and here I thought it was my text signal!

Good for you .. it must be rough ...

It is rough!!! I've got two weeks of timeshare that I have to use up ... one expires in Sept and one in Oct. These were free weeks ... will only cost about $250 for a one bedroom for the week .... so it's very limited as to where I can go but Orlando is one of the places I can use the certificates at every month except July. They're also good in Palm Springs and that would be a much cheaper vacation.

Kook, asked Pas twice, as felt so sure she would want to proclaim the news herself, but our queen was tired and needs to be at work at 7pm for a loong night ...she wanted everyone to know her excitment STAT!!

and Really for Jeannette, she held out fairly long before making this change!

Thanks for the update Janet!

Even when totally exhausted, Pas, our Queen of Resort Changing has hit the speed dial and made that call. Sounds like a great plan!

It was definitely on my block, but not necessarily in front of my house. I left my name and number so they knew I wasn't a prank call. Cops come, I'm able to get away from Lily and see what the commotion is. The alcoholic lady across the street was slamming her door and screaming. Apparently her husband locker her out. I know it probably seems silly to call the cops over it, but I get very nervous with my littles in the house, and it is 1 in the morning! The cops got her straightened out and left, thankfully. I hate calling the cops and never do it, but if I feel that someone's safety is threatened I will definitely do it!
I am so glad it wasn't something more serious. You calling the cops wasn't silly at all. You couldn't see what was going on, and thought someone was in danger. If they had been, you could have saved their life. I would have done the same thing.

I'm just glad I don't have to deal with state taxes. I have a friend from the DIS June 2012 FB page that has to do state taxes in two states plus federal.

5/31- arrival day

MK in the afternoon
'Ohana dinner 9:30
Possibly back to MK as they are open until 11 and then have PM EMH


6/1-
MK rope drop
Crystal Palace breakfast 9:25
Afternoon swim, evening apps
EPCOT at night

6/2-
Chef Mickey's breakfast 7:15 ()
No plans yet for rest of the day

6/3-
Studios for RD
50's Prime Time lunch at 11:25
afternoon break/swim
No plans for evening yet. Either DTD or swimming and enjoying the Poly

6/4-
EPCOT for RD
Le Cellier lunch 1:25
Cry all night because we leave the next day

6/5-
Kona Cafe breakfast
Do anything that is left on to do list before flight home.Since we have a later flight home we won't get picked up by ME until around 3:30 so we basically can do almost anything. Will probably hit MK one last time.

How do my plans look?
Sound like a great plan. We did a 7:15 AM ADR at Chef Mickey's on our first trip. I think my three guys would kill me if I tried that now.

I wish we just had to do 2 posts. Normally it's a minimum of 6 total "quality" post. What quality means depends on the professor. With on of them, you had to have at least one source per post and a minimum of 100 words.


Normally what I do on my papers, is I plan to get them written early, then I procrastinate. The day it's due (Sunday by 11:59 PM), I write it and edit as I go. Then I plan on editing it further, but then my give a darn breaks and I just submit it after making sure it meets the length requirements. Then I pretend to "edit" it while watching movie on my laptop and tell the DH I can't play SW:tOR with him since I am working on my paper, but in reality it's already been turned in. Luckily, I have gotten all A's with this method.

I do hope you get FD, it really helps alot of families.
Now I have to decide if I want to opt in to the class action lawsuit a law firm is heading up because of the situation with the 8863 form screw up. My sister says to go ahead an opt in, so I may do that.

My DH told me last night, "no Free Dining for our dates, move the trip to dates that have it. No Free Dining at all, no Disney this year."

I know, it's just with my fried brain I thought 8/28 was September 28, which would have been after our dates. Once my brain was working right, I realized our dates were withing the normal time they have offered FD. Hopefully, they will offer it, as the DH has made it clear he will cancel our trip otherwise.

That it will. I ended up sleeping until 1 PM today. As soon as my head hit the pillow I was wide awake and didn't fall asleep until closer to 5 or 6 AM. Then, the DH's alarm woke me up at 8 AM. As soon as he was off to work, I went back to sleep until 1 PM. I could have slept more, but decided against it.

I am feeling better today, thank you for asking. If I could just get rid of the cough and feeling like I can't breath. The problem with this issue is that I'm not totally sure you messed it up. I keep hearing it was H&R Block, but then they tell me it was the IRS.

I understand ... sometimes trying to multiquote just gets overwhelming.

Enjoy the art show .... sounds like a fun evening.

wookie unfortunately I know those kinds of nights all too well. they really stink! I think a 7:15 breakfast will be alright since we are so close. We can leave at 6:50, which is only like 20 minutes earlier than we would leave for breakfast in the lounge or at Capt Cook's. I will get myself ready first and won't wake the kids up until like 6:20. They'll be fine, and if they aren't then tough because they're in Disney and they'll like it!



As per Janet's request, I've got a shiny new ticker!!! I am off to dinner with my cousin who is visiting from college this weekend. Then we are going to the mall since I broke my only bra.
