Hurray!! I love the change sis. You guys deserve it.
Fantastic change!
Love the new ticker!!!
You can book the cabana yourself.
I am happy for you Deena. You need a pleasant work environment. Too much stress is no good for your health. I am looking forward to meeting up in June!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today has been the longest day ever. Worked till 5, then went straight to parent teacher night at Danimal's school. We are having trouble with another kid bothering him, and when he tells on the kid no one does anything so Danimal retaliates on his own. I do not approve of Danimal hitting the other kid but the school needs to step it. If someone was bothering me and getting away with it I know I would hit a breaking point. And we are talking about a class of special Ed kids classified as emotionally disturbed. It's been a long and exhausting night. Everyone points the finger. Every teacher said it wasn't in their class of course. So very frustrating. Tomorrow we go back to his developmental pediatrician. I have some videos to show her and hopefully this will get her to do something new for him. There's so much going on with him that it's hard to reign everything in and get him on track. Sorry to vent. Thanks for listening!
Dani
I hope you can get some satisfactory results with the school over this issue with Danimal. My eldest boy was picked on a lot once even given a bloody nose (I was told "boys will be boys" BS) finally by Middle I had it and told him just pound the kid back...the result both were suspended the Principle told me did not matter who started it. Good Luck growing up is so painfull for some, I hate what school is like

Thanks for the answer to my question about the Cabana

What to do, what to do....

Looks like I am about to swtich our reservation for June 5-13 from a preferred pool view at Pop to a standard at CBR. There is only $100 difference so I thought it would be nice to try a different resort. Have previously stayed at Pop and CSR and loved both. I am going to request building 22, 45 or 51 I think since I can't quite swing another $200 and see if I get lucky upon arrival......this has driven me nuts. First I had us booked at POR thenhad to cancel. When I was able to re-book it was full so I booked Pop.......I think I fit right in here and I am thinking of starting a support group for us I'll bring the donuts

I haven't said anything on Facebook because there's no need for my MIL to find out that I'm not working. I've been busy though. Organizing, steam cleaned the carpets, lots of projects, laundry... all things I've put off too long!

My friend is coming the 2nd week in April and staying at the WL. I'm excited to see the new rooms for myself!! I also have BCV booked for 4 nights in September. If a job comes thru quick, I'll have my birthday at YC, but for now.... I'm holding off.

I'm glad I'll have more time to spend with my RC'ers now I miss you guys like crazy!!!
Deena I knew the day was coming. I hope you can find your dream job

If it were me I would try something new, never stayed at CBR but for $100 difference the pool alone looks worth it if you have kids

We love CBR. If they got queen sized beds it would definitely be our mod of choice.

Happy Wednesday RC buddies! First day of spring. More snow today. I think I need to see the beach smilie.

MM-Looks like 4 weeks and one day for you. (but who's counting...)

Wookie-I hope you find a great riverwalk deal!

Sjs314-Hooray for great flight deals!!

Piglet's Mommy-Congrats on your dd's art show! That must have been such fun!

Jen-Great idea, a just the two of you getaway. Sending pixie dust as you plan!

Lacey and Marie- Lacey, I was wondering, too, how Marie's dh is doing. Hope he is doing a bit better each day.

Luv-Fingers crossed a wonderful job offer comes along.

Dani-Sending hugs, thinking of you!

Dixie-Hello there! Welcome! Glad you popped over to our happy little place!

Janet, Missoutandabout--you guys were so sweet to ask about our plans. I always appreciate suggestions, input from the RC friends! Suggest away!
Here's the dining line up (we tend to do light breakfast, late bigger lunch and then snackies in the lounge if we've booked CL)

Day 1 arrive in the evening, WL
Day 2 3pm afternoon tea Grand Floridian
Day 3 3pm late lunch Yak and Yeti
Day 4 Move to YC probably just munch at F&W, maybe take a class
Day 5 3pm Chefs de France (I will cancel this if they offer the F&W French Regional lunches and we can get a reservation)
Day 6 3pm Le Cellier and maybe a class
Day 7 Blue Zoo for Dinner (Hope they are part of Sept. Magical Dining again.)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Waving hi to Kook, Pas, Magic, GG, and RC friends I missed.

Wookie, sorry I missed your post on Walmart… I think it’s great you came back with your story … people (not only teenagers) need to have something thrown back at them to see how their words/actions can affect others. Good for you. With Joey, it's difficult to know what to do (know what you mean about being perceived as fighting his battles)...have you already discussed this situation with a guidance teacher? Perhaps talking with Joey’s last period teacher would be good, since the bullying has gone on in their classroom.

Dani, hope that Danimal's teacher will be more open abnd receptive to the issues going on. Let us know how it does at the doctor's today as well.

Sheila so happy you got your Poly and save some additional $$. We might be in Disney over your dates too!

Deena, as I already said to you, you did the right thing by removing yourself from an unhealthy working situation that only brought you unhappiness and stress….The right position is waiting for you to discover and now you will have the time to do so We really have missed you here!

Ginny, the line up seems good! Re your list...we have only eaten at one place (Le Cellier) and a CS at Y & Y. Snacking around the world is mandatory on a F&W trip Chef de France is on my bucket list; and sure the French regional lunch (not sure what this is) will be great! For us, the french bakery is on our list every trip. And it's a good bet that Blue Zoo will be included again..

All in all a savings of just shy of $600 on the room and tix. Disney does not usually offer anything that week so I had to grab this deal since we prefer going in November. Bob likes the idea of renting a Cabana for half a day! Anyone know if I can do tht or do I have to have the TA reserve the Cabana for me?
sjs314, so great to hear the news! The number to rent the cabana is 1-407-WDW-PLAY. We did the early half-day cabana rental (which turned into a full day because nobody rented the second half ).

We had a location in Jamiaca and loved it. We were in front of the beach, and beside the quite pool. Bonus of Jamaica is that it often gets picked up first on the bus.

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


pas130: Can't say as I am surprised with all WL Honeymoon Suite. It is perfect for you and Brian. You deserve it.

jennyjinx3: I'll bet you have NO PROBLEM whipping up a little weekend trip for just you two.


letthewookiewin: Me too. Love WL. About the noodle chair: We own them, and we have brought them to SAB pool with no issue. I think as long as you slip right in the pool and don't horse around with them you'll be just fine. We have no kids so we just take a lazy river spin and chill in a quiet end of the SAB pool and talk with our crew. The chairs don't take any sightline and you don't even see the seat. ...Enjoy planning your Riverwalk getaway.


Deena: Thought so. I know your next job will be one you luvluvluv to go to each day. The first one cememted your move, and now you can find just the right fit. .... We be there in a couple weeks. Maybe you and your DH and me and my DH can sit 15 feet away from each other agin for an hour and not know it.

Dixiemom: We love trying new Resorts too. Glad for your newest change to CBR.

disneydreamin247: So you love CBR? Please tell me the good stuff as I had kind of written it off without even staying there. Best of luck with Danimal.


gwynne: Such a bummer to hear about the CL folks. We had great kids, Kevin and May, a few weeks back. But I DO know we've had some *meh* check-in experiences downstairs. Some of them can be kinda aloof, but luckily in our cases there was always another CM nearby to pick up mood in the friendly department. That said...we all know WL is KING of friendly CMs. Such nice folks over there. Glad it feels right. You'll have a magical blast at WL!!! Your ADRs sound really nice. We do bigger late lunches too when it is just us, too. Somehow we always canceling our BlueZoo. Next time.


aml3679: So you booked POFQ...Changed to WL...Changed to POR...Paid Vacation Off Today! Great RC!!! Allright!!!!


Janet B: You'll be in Disney over Sheila's dates? These teasers are killers. Spill the new and better Disney coffee beans!!


Hi Kook, pigletsmommy, GG, MM, chimo2u, and our RC friends.

Our fearless leader Pas asked me to pass along that she is thinking of you all and sends her love.

Two intensive nursing courses in one semester are a little too much.

But ... On the plus side… 2 weeks to Disney!!

I've applied just about everywhere There's one position in Downtown Disney that I've done 4 interviews on, but it's for the end of April and they haven't made decisions. The further it goes, the less that I want it. I'm working with a staffing agency to get placed, and they think they I'll be working full time in a couple weeks. Until then, my home needs some serious love and care

I missed everyone so much!! Hopefully the right place for me will come around in a couple weeks. I would love to have a least another 2 weeks off to re-group, but my bank account may cry if it's too long after that

What gave it away?? Typhoon Lagoon on a retail Saturday? Posting nonsense in the middle of the night?

Yes, I think we should plan to sit next to each other at dinner and not know that we are there Let me know when you're here--if I'm around I would love to see you!!

~~~~~~

Jeanette! I love the WL Honeymoon switch!! I approve!!

Wookie: I loved your Walmart story!! Something I would totally do!!

Marie: I've been keeping your family in my thoughts!!

I know there's LOTS of other RC'ers that I've missed... but HI!

It's good to be back!
