No, I haven't done any research on Universal. didn't even think about it. Yes, probably only one day. Hmmm, must do a little more research on this line of thinking.

I'm sure that was pretty scary!

Is this the first year she's doing this? It's a big step to be away that long.

She's been going to camp for years but the sessions are only two weeks. Because she's staff in training now, she'll be gone a month. The summer after next, she'll be away the entire summer.

She did call last night for a about 20 seconds. Hahaha! I tried to ask questions and got cut off with an I love you, send more snacks, no gotta go. It was great to hear her voice though.

Yes Jill, she loves it. It's so good for her too. As you can imagine there aren't many Jewish kids around so this is a great chance for her to stay connected outside of us. I just wish I could see a photo. The camp is great about posting pics of the campers but rarely do we see any of staff.

20 seconds, too cute. At least she was thinking about you send more snacks? Didn't she just get there? Then again, camp food is never the best.

She emailed today. I think she may miss me. Chloe wrote her a letter that I mailed off today and I sent a little card. Michael is sending her a post card from the Mantauk too. I don't want to smother her or make her homesick but I also know she wants to know we're thinking out her.

The food is actually really good but there aren't a lot of snacks so these are late night munchies I'm sure. Most of the girls live local so I wish their folks would drop some treats off. It'd save me a bundle in shipping.

The camp posts photos and I know how to find them, they're just not taking them of staff and the SITs.

We moved to a new server but did use bunk1 for a few years. I like our new site better.

The camp finally posted a pic of her from last night.





She's in the blue/purple. Yay I'm so happy.

I've been following along with your guys conversation and all, but barely keeping up as most of it is from my phone when I'm in a parking lot on my way somewhere. I've just been that freakin busy!!!!!!

Right now I'm sitting in Lowe's with our cart full of blinds while Fran tootles all over the store completing our list. I can't wait for this apartment nonsense to be over, have them rented to good people and be done with it. Plus we would have some more money in the bank and steady income foe the forseeable future!

I read your update in your PTR and you have been so busy! I hope things calm down soon.

I hope you find good renters too. I can imagine its a little scary trying to sift through the applicants. How long until you can official list?

Income for the future is a GOOD thing!

How are you doing on your own remodel? Is that sort of on the back burner until the apartments get rented?

And isn't D23 coming up? I got my free membership through the Disney Store. Guess it's the same one offered through DVC. It's not very exciting. If I lived closer I'd upgrade. Just too hard to take advantage of all the goodness living so far away.

I update my trip report too a few days ago. I think you ladies missed it.



And I have a mini update for the cruise.....we're officially changing to late dinner and Pam is going to join us at our table. It's going to be a total blast!
