I'm just jealous.... I have to be on my best behavior until they take my gall bladder out! I have many friends who are teachers and live the life of a Nun or Mun (Mun = Male Nun) UNTIL summer vacation hits. Then it's like Sodom and Gomorrah until about the last two weeks of August when they start going back in for in-services and class room preparation.

Have a nice swing on the chandelier for old NM will ya!

PS I'm busy writing a trip report!.... But it's not necessarily for a trip that I went on, or one that's even happened yet. Stay tuned for further details!

It's summer vacation. We're allowed to drink in strict moderation from late June until late August.

Refurb?

Does anyone know exactly what this refurb will consist of?

Aug. 31 – Dec. 8, 2013: Guest room will undergo hard goods refurbishment.

They haven't released specific information yet on the details of this Aug. 31 – Dec. 8, 2013 refurbishment.

The grapevine has confirmed a refurb and enlargement of the Beach Club, Club Level hospitality area which will approximately double it in size. Again the dates for this are not being officially released but we do know that the BC Club level hospitality area will be moved to the Presidential suite until the new area is complete.

I hope that helps! Stay tuned to this thread for further updates

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

Um, we drink on lots of occasions!

We're cleaning out the basement fridge in preparation for our kitchen remodel. In our 2 teacher home, I came across THREE bottles of champagne in the basement fridge.

I guess Mimosas are on the menu sometime very soon.

I'm bumping over the poncho discussion and adding my $.02

36 days!!!

Usually the first time we need 'em the slow poke of the group is the one that goes with out the poncho and gets soaked. The next time it rains it really gets interesting in the poncho wars. People will volunteer to carry the back pack with the family park stuff (Sun screen, band aids, water bottles, ponchos and the contents of Mom's purse etc) just so they can get first crack at a poncho! Using this method you will never have to bug your children to help carry the family load to the parks!

Usually, the person without the poncho does a lot of whining about getting wet but whining in my family falls on deaf ears. I just tell them that God made 'em wash and wear and to get over it. This is followed by threats to send Mom to "SHADY Acres" nursing home when she gets older but with the way my family is wearing me out I am confident I won't make it past 50.

We always reuse the ponchos so almost everybody just gets the one. I'm talking about the "El Cheapo" ponchos sold in Walmart. They are so thin they ball up nicely in a gallon zip lock bag for the next episode of "Who's gonna get soaked today 'cause Mom was too cheap to buy enough ponchos!"

The next time your family is getting on your nerves remember that YOU have the power and the planning knowledge to BRING THEM TO THEIR KNEES! Using these strategies you'll find that everyone has a reason to behave and the complaining is kept to a minimum. Why heck you even have family members that will start to kiss up to you so you'll leave them alone.

Sometimes we reuse them, but end up throwing out a few per trip. I would maybe get 2-3 per person and save the receipt so I can return extras. I usually get them for $1 each so it's not a big issue to get a bunch. Then depending on how clumsy your party members are, you may have a lot or none at all left over. Every day I pack enough for all of us +1 just incase we open a dud.

I also make all of my kids carry their own bag, meaning they have their own poncho if I don't stash them in the stroller.

Ponchos? We don't need no stinking ponchos!

Here's an excerpt from my Class Trip Report (145 Middle Schoolers):


"We stopped at a gift shop so the boys could buy ponchos.

I decided not to get one for myself for a few reasons-

I was already wet.

I don't like the feel of the ponchos.

I'm cheap. I brought a raincoat on the trip. I wasn't about to spend extra money on something I had remembered to pack (but forgot to bring)





Not only was I an idiot that night forgetting my raincoat and failing to switch my footwear to sandals, I also lost out on the chance to win Mother of the Year. Again!

Here is the picture of the group who went to Sum of All Thrills. Please note that the only person in this picture who is NOT wearing a raincoat or poncho is my son".
