Mousemommy...isn't it funny how extra $$ always makes us think DISNEY!! And your baby is growing up...no more kindergarden... I remember that well..even though my "babies" are all grown up.

Pas130..Jeanette?...I haven't seen you on here, but could have sworn I saw a post on another thread? Are you on vaca now?

SueM....So now that I am at CL at WL...are there open balconies there? I think I am on Woods View (thought it might be a tad quieter for hubby...) Any thoughts on room requests now that I've cha changed again? Please tell me I will LOVE CL there!

Oh, and I finally picked up the phone and cancelled September's reservations.....nearly killed me, but I am being responsible..blah, blah, blah. Plus with all the upgrades I've done this trip, it'll be good to get that $$ from the deposit back in the bank!
There are no open balconies at WL CL....but, you will LOVE it!!! Seriously it was our BEST.STAY.EVER!!!!

At the end of our trip, DH was ready to call the movers and just stay there, it was that good. Don't change!!!!

Jeanette Sounds like you are in dire need of that vacation in 21 Days

So Bob found a cruise he wants to go on. TCM 5 day cruise out of Miami on the "Disney Magic" but we'd have to cancel the Poly trip, no way we could afford both right now.

The type of room isn't that important to me. It is getting to take the kids to MNSSHP and the fun we will have. That is what's important to me. Plus, it doesn't hurt that $400 is a start of our September 2014 fund.

Even though I am set on my LK choice, I would like to stick around because 2014 is way up in the air
Those rooms are AWESOME. Stick around, there is NO reason to leave...even if there is no current changes, once you join us..YOU'RE FAMILY!

He opted for the Pop Century instead. Since we have never done a split stay, how does it work with getting them to transport your luggage? Do we just call bell services the morning we are checking out of the Pop, they will come and get it and then it will magically appear later in our AKL room? Do I need to allow time for bell services to come and pick up the luggage? In other words, we need to stay with the room until they do pick it up and I need to make sure to allow enough time that we are out of the room by the 11 AM check out? Then do we stop by the Pop front desk before heading off to the AKL? Finally do you think it would be ok to just leave the minivan overnight in that front parking lot (where you park when you check in) since we'll be getting in close (or after midnight) and checking out before 10?
I would leave it in the van. At Poly Bell services was FAST! But elsewhere, it was hours before our luggage arrived.

So, up to rinse her off (again) with some Cetaphil and slather on some Caladryl lotion... and a dose of Benadryl tonight before bedtime. She's feeling fine... it just itches like crazy so I'm constantly having to tell her to leave it alone.
Hope she's better!

Leaving in TWO days!!! Checking into POR for the night on Thursday and into BC on Friday! Can't wait!

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
Happy belated birthday to DH!! And I hope DS did well on his interview! Red Robin YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. DH and I eat there when we actually have an opportunity to dine out Continued for DH's hand!!!

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.
AWESOME NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOVE ALL the resorts. RPR is MUCH like Poly! A tropical laid back quiet place...BTW Club level there is pretty darn reasonable. The beds are AMAZING the most comfy! The Portofino had a recent refurb, and is also lovely. Hard Rock was cool, but we preferred RPR. You can pool hop, and take a boat or walk to the parks. You'll have a blast. Don't forget the Express Passes for the rides!!

Can't comment on the pool as we were there in Feb and it was too cold to use it but it looked nice. Again, the resort was just not for us and we would choose a value over CBR any day, but a lot of people love it!

Sorry, just being honest.
Candace, I could've wrote this review..this was exactly our CBR experiences (add a zillion cheer teams as well)

Ah, music to my ears! I'm a bit nervous about being "across the lake" from my beloved but the pictures look lovely and I've heard nothing but good things. We were able to walk through the lobby when they still had their Christmas decor up in January. It sure is pretty inside.

Jen: What happened with all that potential RCing yesterday?

Don't tell on me or I might get kicked out of the midwest... I'm not a fan of deep dish Chicago-style. (Grew up on the thin NY-style.) Now, I'd definitely try their thin crust if they had it!

I've booked BBs and changed them months after. Matter of fact we changed our 2 days POFQ bb, to 1 day at Pop, arriving then added GF ( not on BB I got a better deal). Now thinking of cha cha changing Pop to AoA Mermaid room, or POR Royal room, thanks to Heathers great pics ugh.

Supposed to start warming up here for This weekend! I hope so, I have 9 for a BBQ Saturday, and hope to dine on the patio! Happy Canada Day!
How're you feeling?! How's the pupster doing? Hope the rain eases for you guys up there. There's certainly been far too much of it this year... our yard's a swamp. (And our backyard neighbor had their sprinkler on yesterday?! We've only been having torrential downpours every other day. ) Enjoy the BBQ and the sunny weather... thinking positive for ya!

Koh: $1000 difference? OUCH! That's crazy talk!

Thanks pas130 for your help. We'll be at Univ or WDW at the same time as you. OMG I am like a kid in a candy store on that Univ website. I started out my planning so innocently using Marriott points offsite, but it is actually MUCH cheaper to stay ONSITE with a RPR Package (go figure, but ). So far I have:
  • RPR (either Club or the King suite, same price)
  • Univ only Tix with Express Pass (no IoA this time, no time)
  • Cinematic Spectacular movie combo w/meal at Lombards (my DB will love that)
  • Meal/Mini Golf package (I am the mini golf sucker)
The packages will almost act as a dining plan and will allow DB order whatever he wants without being so buzzkill budget conscious. And either way we go we need tix since we are on a FL resident blackout time. For 3 adults the total price isn't coming in toooo bad... Should this thing at Univ not pan out, we'll still do WDW. Still holding the Poly CL for now but DH suggested GF for my DB since he's never experienced it. I also have WL in the running. I may have to chomp my own popcorn for this one.

Also, I am sorry you are having a difficult week. I hope it gets much better for you. Things here have been very sad and stressful lately with mom and dad.

Your Universal scheming has me all
Miss, first belated congratulations on DH's promotion. Very cool for you. I skipped about 20 pages trying to keep current.

Next, HOW AWESOME is that pic of DD at the StarWars thingie!!!!! OMG I hope you don't mind but I keep it up on screen since lately I need a good hearty laugh pretty often. It is the funniest thing I've seen in a long time.

Next, yep... we all like the thin Chicago pizza too. Ssssshhhh. DH's whole clan does the thin, too. Maybe once a a year we do deep dish. Giordano's also has thin crust, but they keep it on the down-low

I agree 110% with pas130... first POLY , then cruise .
