Jeanette - My heart goes out to HRH These poor kids go through so much and it seems that there are educators that just don't get it. I hope the neurologist can help some how. I feel like I am constantly updating Steven's IEP, but that is what we have to do as parents. Remember you are her biggest champion and she will get through this with you by her side

Koh - my friend just posted a picture of SWAT with guns drawn right outside her window

I honestly cannot believe what I' m watching on the news. How scary and nerve wracking for the people of Boston. The whole city on lockdown....wow. I know this sort of thing happens overseas everyday but this is just too much. Really hoping they get this guy before he hurts more people. Hugs to all my RC friends.

RCers, I try to keep to WDW topics on here if at all possible. I want to thank you all for entertaining my off-topic meltdown about mom's trip. It did, in fact, help to "write it down" and your words of support were more appreciated than you could imagine. Thanks again.

Mousemommy, I am SUPER excited for you!!!!! What wonderful pixie dust for a wonderful family... and congrats on being family of the day!!! Have a awesome time!

Thanks Dani. And WOW for a perfectly timed new vacation. Sounds like it was meant to be!

That's the half when we'd do the signature dining, etc. Tell me I'm completely crazy to even consider it!
lol lol Koh1977... this is the change I was referring. And I know exactly what you mean... sometimes I have absolutely NO idea where and when and how I am staying at WDW due to one-too-many "great ideas".

Long story short I should have know better than to plan mom's birthday trip so close to when DH & I were out of town last week. My mom has severe depression and severe anxiety. She has been doing very well the past few months (all things relative), and I got complacent and just didn't think it through. Well, she crashed big-time while we were away. Getting her to do anything is always very difficult, but she always rebounds and enjoys herself once she gets to where she is going. We got her all packed Friday to avoid additional stress. And then Saturday morning, before we arrived at her house to pick her up, she whipped herself into such a frenzy that she landed herself in the hospital. Since it was a weekend, she wasn't really looked at by the docs til Monday. They did all the routine tests and she was released Wednesday and is fine.

This trip was a big deal for mom and she was so excited to go: Lagoon View CL ADA room so she could enjoy Wishes from the lounge or from the room, her choice. She couldn't wait to see the progress of the new Fantasyland since her last visit. And she wanted to try a Holiday Sandwich from Earl of Sandwich that she's heard so much about.

So as for the ressie, I was in a haze Sat a.m. and rebooked just so as to not lose our money. The CM said, "I have that room open July 20." So I just took it. I wasn't thinking. I am going to need to re-visit that ressie as I don't know if it is the best time to go... duh, we are going to OKW just a few days later. And it is definitely too hot for Mom then. In hindsight, DH and I just should have changed to a non-ADA CL room and gone ourselves, as my cousin was there at the same time for F&G. But I was just too upset.

Sorry for the long spiel. I don't even know why I am putting it out here. I guess I am desperately afraid that this was her last "trip" EVER to WDW (and all of the unsaid that goes along with it) and I am just a mess.

Mousemommy & i_heart_the_mouse: WISHES for you both for FANTABULOUS TRIP!!!! Hug your peeps a lot, and take lots of pics!

I know I've missed a lot of you, but I am keeping my eyes peeled on your goings-on.

I can't believe I am up right now, but I didn't really sleep well because I was waiting for that knock on the door with our luggage, but that never came.....I thought, uh oh.....but, our luggage is at the front desk, we got a voicemail and I just have to call for it.

Our room is beautiful! We have a daybed. My only complaint is that there is periodically a loud clanking noise every so often.....I don't know what it is but it sounds like a fire extinguisher being slammed onto pavement or something....

I'll have to investigate that....but I seem to be the only one bothered by it.

Well, everyone else is still sleeping and my friend just texted me asking what time we were heading to MK....so, I'm logging off for now! Gotta call for our luggage...
MM Have a wonderful Day!

Ok, so...I did all of the math, with all of the options (I think)...for approximately the same price as we're paying right now, maybe $100+ (I forgot to factor in tax when I was pricing out meals) we could do the split stay...it's looking better and better to me...but not sure DH will go for it, nor how the kids will do with moving so much since we'll be at a SW hotel the first 2 nights...but, I've always wanted to try AKL (savannah view of course!) and we're likely not doing Disney for at least a year or two after this trip...my kids LOVE animals...

Jen, Ginny, Melissa,You all said it well. (Melissa, somehow lost your post ...sorry.) Melissa I admire how you juggle all the family dynamics... with Steven, Sarah, taking on the GF cooking with gusto and your unnerving commitment to ensure the kids have the best possible resources at their disposal.

My DS always struggled with anxiety, especially when he was younger, and social situations could sometimes be very difficult. And he was quiet so people didn't perceive his issues right off. There should be less judgment and more compassion in this world. And maybe, lend a helping hand sometimes. 'nuff said.

I sent person a PM and nicely explained that I wasn't the person who said that, but person didn't have the class to apologize.
Sue, too many people hide behind the screens and post info they might never say to your face. It sounds like you let it roll off your back - good for you!! Never let those types of people get you down.

I'm calling Happy Hour for 5pm tonight Between the events in Boston/Watertown and the call I just got from the school, drinking needs to start early today

On a happier note, I have Sarah's balloons and cards ready for tomorrow and we are set to pick up her little friend tomorrow morning for her bday spa, lunch, and mall day

Krystal You are making me get the AKL "bug" I love that resort from the moment you walk thru the doors and the "WOW" factor hits you, it is just amazing! Go for it!

Dani Sorry to read the cruise is a no go now but an October trip sounds Great!

If we go in a day early, I want to go straight to the "property" Otherwise, we can take the 6 AM and still be in the World by 10:30 AM.
