Happy Mothers Day to all of you

Sheila- continued good thoughts to you on this day.

Jen- too funny, that is so the way my boys would have acted.

I'm in Western PA for the night, Valpo tomorrow to pack up Brendan.

Jeanette - I think New Smyrna will be good. :-) Disney then beach? Perfect vacation! I miss the ocean...I don't think DH would let me sneak in a day trip to the beach though...not when we're paying Disney prices!!

Working on the photo autograph books right now...instead of grading papers...oops... :-)

We have changed resorts 4 times

Since planning our trip so long ago, we have changed resorts 4 times! Is this abnormal?

We planned our trip so long ago. We did not want to spend the money on a Deluxe resort and decided on POFQ based on someone I work with who said it was the best moderate. We booked. After looking at pictures, I was not thrilled with the main pool or the food court.

My husband talked about how much he loved The Grand Californian in California when we were at Disneyland so I switched to surprise him. He found out by looking at The Disney Boards - I did not think he looked at all. He did not want to spend the extra $2K.

We watched a lot of You Tube videos and changed to Port Orleans Riverside.

After reading many reviews - I got interested in Coronado Springs since it supposedly has a more adult feel. So we decided on our final resort - Coronado Springs King Business Class.

You are not abnormal, in fact you fit in quite nicely here! 2K is a big upgrade, and from what I understand the business class at Coronado is very nice! Welcome!!

It's totally normal to make that many changes. There are just so many amazing resorts, I think it's abnormal to not have 2nd thoughts and change resorts. $2K more is a lot to upgrade to a Deluxe, but we're splurging on one this trip.

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day. We went to my sister's house and had lunch for Mother's Day and my brother's birthday. Clancy, the Irish Wolfhound almost sat in my lap, but then just sat beside me. Which was a good thing because I bet if he stood on just his hind legs, he would be taller than I am (and I'm 5'5"). I did get a lot of good snuggle time with Holly, the Beagle. She felt better, but still has staples.

Oh and I got this in the mail from Mickey.....

Our MNSSHP tickets.

I'm so excited for you guys! about their reactions. Ah, kids. Yay for SWW and BOG! Looking forward to your reviews already.

Dani: Ugh. Sorry about the family drama. Hopefully your cousin will wake up and stop being a jerk to your grandma and the rest of you.

Candace: Love the new fur-baby! How's Lao Che coming along? Are they closer to being buddies yet? (That pic was HILARIOUS!)

Higher prices? Eeeeep. That's a shame.

Janet: Ah, MAJOR brownie points for the kids!

Welcome! That sounds perfectly normal ... around here anyway!

EDIT!

Wookie: Waaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh for Party TICKETS!


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

Less than stellar day here yesterday. I won't bother blah-blahing about it... because today's a new day and it's sunny out. I was up at 3am looking at Disney stuff -- can't think of anything better to do when I can't sleep! Miss M's home from school (administration day) Gotta go get her hair cut... she's starting to give Cousin It a run for the money.

I've got a quick little change to report!!! Instead of ASMO in Sept, we are staying at the CR!!! (Garden wing, standard view)

We just think the price is worth it (especially since we are splitting it) to be within walking distance to MK for the MNSSHP and then monorail to Epcot for food and wine!!!

Booked with AAA discount, but hoping for military discount to be renewed because if it is then our room will be half paid off with the deposit!!
