Quick update on DH (it's his bday today and we're taking him to Red Robin (A CDN burger joint) for dinner -- yeah! No cooking!!! -- tomorrow is date night at the VIP theatre to see The Heat)

Dr apt was a mixed bag still. He is finally given the go ahead to begin more aggressive Physio to see if he can get movement in the top joint of his pinky. If after 2 months/ end summer it's still not moving or contributing to function of his other three working fingers, he'll have to make a choice if its really worth keeping if it is hindering function of the other three. He's grown quite attached to his little/ smaller hand, so that would be a big dissapointment to lose baby finger too. The surgeon said though in his opinion if the baby finger has no movement still, it's just going to suck from his three good fingers, and he'll have better function with three fingers than 3 and a tag along finger that's not offering any function to his overall hand use.
So it's a waiting game and Physio all summer to see what kind of movement / if any he can obtain in his baby finger. Next Visit is Aug 28th. We should have a little better idea by then what he's looking at for going forward to meet his goal of going back as a Sheriff/ if he can. That's the hope though.

DH and I are in need of a holiday!!!

DS 21 FINALLY has his interview for his first job at Home Depot ( CDN hardware store) today! He's applied for a night shift position M-F 10pm-6:30am
On the freight team -- offloading/ stocking etc. I am so hoping he gets it because he needs to get his life started somehow - he needs it for experience- he needs it as a stepping stone for whatever he's going to do next ( which at the moment is kind of unknown , but leaning towards the possibility of becoming an electrician) -- he needs it for his sanity and self esteem! He just needs something to feel good about and to work and have his own savings and sense of accomplishment -- oh how I hope he's successful and gets offered the position! I have a feeling if he fails at this, his self esteem might be crushed and he may just go into a slump please pixie dust for my boy!!!!

Hope all is well with all my loving RCer family
A Big Happy. Birthday to your DH Marie and hope he can get some movement during. The next 2 months of PT

Sending lots of to DS !

Hellooooooooooooo chicas!

Marie: Happy Birthday to your hubs! Hoping the more-intense physio does the trick. Positive thoughts, as always! Savor that no-cook dinner tonight -- those are THE best.

Janet: Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay for Sam! She rocks. Glad she's doing it. She's going to have a blast... and make tons of great memories in the process.

DetTigs: Lovin' your update. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Jen: Sooooo, if you go with BWI you can scope it out for us! For standard views, I've got the following advice for a good view... "Courtyard, Facing Epcot" -- the pics I've seen in Kooks' thread show it looking out over the France Pavilion. You can see Illuminations if you can nab one of these rooms.

Sheila: Speaking of BWI, how'd you like it there?

Willow: Hahaha, NICE change!

Koh: Shall we break out the popcorn again? Any more thoughts on CR?

~~==============~~

Only news I've got to share...

Hubbo was at home yesterday. (He needed to work from home because everyone at his work was bugging him and he has to work on his talk for a conference he's attending this weekend. Mind you, working with Miss M and myself hanging around is infinitely MORE difficult than colleagues bugging you all day.) I heard him go upstairs into the office and let loose with a phrase I can't share here. He comes running back downstairs and tells me to check my email. The email in question was a letter from the director of the lab. Very short and sweet but the hubster was given a promotion, effective immediately. He's never been a "toot his own horn" type, so this sort of thing means a lot to him beyond the obvious as it requires multiple written recommendations from respected members of his field on top of review-by-committee before it can go ahead -- and it was all done without him knowing. So proud of that nerd.

Miss: I just called and the CM said I could not request courtyard, epcot view. She said the only available request when booking a SV room was garden and upper floor. I just got some info from her and will call back later. Should I ask a different CM when I call back?

That's bizarre! The woman that updated our reservation said she could only put down two requests "due to the size of the request field" (which sounds entirely plausible) but managed to put in "courtyard view, high floor, quiet" on ours -- the "quiet" bit was her own addition. (I left out the "facing Epcot" because that didn't matter to me as much as being on a higher floor.) Maybe you should ask when you call again. So, you did go ahead and make the SWITCH?!

Our SV at BC was a world better than our GV at YC. I remain ever-hopeful that you can get a fabulous standard view. (And not to mention that SV at AKL... ) We could see fireworks from all our SV rooms so far.

This is so hard! It basically is about $20 more per person per day to stay at the Boardwalk then ASM. I just really feel like I need the atmosphere there again! I loved the feeling of the boats, Epcot right there, the lights at night, the water. I feel it is worth the money! And DH can get his different resort right??

He wants to do a waterpark visit too, so I don't feel so bad about missing out on Stormalong Bay. Also, the Boardwalk Bakery is right there too. Why do I feel like I am totally talking myself into this!!

You should totally call ... you know, for informational purposes.

$20 more for Boardwalk ... including walking to two parks? Heck, you've CONVINCED ME! (Not that I needed any convincing. ) That peanut butter ganache tart thing from Boardwalk Bakery is calling your name already... (or was it the Sea Salt Caramel Square?)

Okay I will explain that...there are five of us, so $100 more a night for Boardwalk. $600 total. Worth it???

Hehehe. I did just send an email to my TA to have him check on things for me...if it's more than $100 difference, then I will say no...I'd much rather have an extra day at Disney. :-) But otherwise...it's a possibility...?? Maybe? It would mean 1 less day though...(basically our originally planned trip length) andI'd have to change some ADRs...

I missed the "per person" bit... in true RCing style, eh? Do you save anything with BWI over BC?

Koh: You can always have the entire scenario planned out including costs! Might be easier to present your case if it comes back as something "doable."

WOO HOO!! Marching band was so much fun!! It's the one thing, that if I could go back in time to do high school again, that would make me want to. It's been almost 20 years since I marched and when I'm walking with someone, I still end up making sure we're walking on the same feet. It's odd how that kind of stuff never leaves you.

Woods view sounded nice and I didn't even request anything....should I? I have to do the work thing again..what's up with that??!! So open to room request suggestions...or courtyard view......?? Have a wonderful day everyone...I will catch up when I get home tonight!! I really love this place.
We had a woods view when we stayed there. I would request something near the otter pond. We couldn't see the castle, but we could see the fireworks through the trees.

Off to the studios today

Janet- congrats to Sam for band!!! She'll love it!

Congrats to your DH!! It's great when a company recognizes your hard work. I can't remember if you've said, and I hope you don't mind me asking, but what kind of nerd is he? Like the computer type, or science type? I love the nerdy type. I think one of the hottest men on the planet is Michio Kaku. I could sit and listen to that man talk about theoretical physics all day.

You're getting very CLOSE to OLCI!

I don't mind... you even mentioned the particular variety of nerd in your very post. He's a theorist. It's funny that you mention Kaku! My hubster's "brush with fame" came with the U.K.'s physics poster child, Brian Cox (kinda like their version of Michio Kaku). He hosts quite a bit of BBC science stuff, was in an episode of Doctor Who and various other geekster stuff. Basically, they love to roll him out when it's anything remotely physics/science related. Anywho, he and my hubs were the examiners together for a PhD student's thesis defense. I think I was more excited about it than he was. He refused to ask Brian Cox for an autograph for me.

Miss bob and I both fell in love with BWI In all honesty I keep thinking of changing my Poly Reservation to BWI that is how much we love it there.

Congrates on DH Promotion!

DetTigs: Lovin' your update. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Jen: Sooooo, if you go with BWI you can scope it out for us! For standard views, I've got the following advice for a good view... "Courtyard, Facing Epcot" -- the pics I've seen in Kooks' thread show it looking out over the France Pavilion. You can see Illuminations if you can nab one of these rooms.

Sheila: Speaking of BWI, how'd you like it there?

Willow: Hahaha, NICE change!

Koh: Shall we break out the popcorn again? Any more thoughts on CR?

Only news I've got to share...

Hubbo was at home yesterday. (He needed to work from home because everyone at his work was bugging him and he has to work on his talk for a conference he's attending this weekend. Mind you, working with Miss M and myself hanging around is infinitely MORE difficult than colleagues bugging you all day.) I heard him go upstairs into the office and let loose with a phrase I can't share here. He comes running back downstairs and tells me to check my email. The email in question was a letter from the director of the lab. Very short and sweet but the hubster was given a promotion, effective immediately. He's never been a "toot his own horn" type, so this sort of thing means a lot to him beyond the obvious as it requires multiple written recommendations from respected members of his field on top of review-by-committee before it can go ahead -- and it was all done without him knowing. So proud of that nerd. [/QUOTE]


Miss: This is great news!! Congrats to your DH!! I love it when they get recognized for their work! Hugs and congrats!
jenny from what I know of BWI Std rooms face the front of BWI or the other side from the courtyard, facing Epcot. Courtyard is WV.

and......there are 3-4 Std rooms on upper floors that do not have. Balcony, so you might want to put balcony for a request. My friend requested 5th floor, facing Epcot and she got a room with no balcony
