I've missed so much, sorry to all.

Trish: My condolences to your family.

Sheila: I'm so sorry you've been getting that sort of news in such a cold, uncaring way. Social media can be more stressful than its worth -- more often than not.

All my Canadian pals: Happy Belated Thanksgiving! Hope everyone has some excellent meals and family time over the weekend.

Hannah: Sorry for your losses. Glad to see your return! Congratulations on the engagement -- very exciting times are in store.

Sue: Going to be posting any reno pics?!

Jen: Is that another one before the APs expire?!

Janet: Hope you didn't get too many dirty looks from the coworkers!
Loved the chit-chat.

---------------------------------

Well, this is the week for us. Found out last Friday that the end of this week will start furloughs for the hub's work. With the trip coming up, it's bad timing to say the least; I just can't seem to muster any enthusiasm with this hanging over us. I really should be packing and making lists but can't seem to focus on it. Anyway, enough of my whining. Taking Miss M to the dentist this afternoon for a check-up ... but she's got a tooth that has another one coming in over top of it. Not sure how they normally handle these things; I thought the adult teeth tend to push the baby teeth out but this one's a fighter. My offer to wiggle it goes rejected every time.

Sorry to hear about the furlough.
Hopefully a deal comes through that will make that not happen.

I know how you feel though. I want to be sooooo excited about our August reservations but it is hard. Even though DH is working and getting paid (and supposedly guaranteed by law to be paid), I feel like there is still uncertainty. It sucks!

The furloughs truly suck! I was supposed to start a CIV position with the Navy in January but that's been put on indefinite hold due to cuts and furloughs. Grateful DH is 'secured' even if we're not 100% when/if pay drops. I hope you don't have to postpone!!!

Also, I had two teeth come in behind my baby teeth. One ended up loose enough I was able to get it out, the other had to be pulled - truly annoying!!!

First off with the sad news. My furbaby BlackJack passed away back in January. She had, I believe, a tumor in her chest that was causing her to not breathe properly and more surgery would not have helped her live any longer. She had a tumor and some cysts on another part of her body a year before and luckily surgery helped her stay with us for another year. She was 12 years old and for those who know me, I'm sure you know she meant the world to me.

A couple of months ago my papa (my grandfather on my mother's side) passed away at the young age of 80 due to a few heart attacks that put him in the hospital for a week or so. We thankfully were able to say goodbye to him. Surprisingly he was chipper, cracking jokes and telling stories in the hospital. He was very accepting of what was happening, but it still didn't make it hurt any less for us. I was so grateful that DFi and I were able to see him in the hospital before he passed and that he got to see a picture of me in my wedding dress. Saturday was his 81st birthday so my mother, nana (my grandmother) and I visited his grave and brought balloons and flowers and went to the Cardinals game in St. Louis. My nana was praying for a win so hard and they won. It was worth every penny we spent on the tickets to see her so happy. My papa was a huge Cardinals fan (they even slaughtered the teams they were playing the weekend he passed away) and we knew it was only him and God answering her prayers.

Now with the good news.

My DBF of four years proposed to me a few months ago! And after a few months of searching for a venue and going through lots of frustration, my mother threw out the idea of having the wedding at Disney World seeing as it would probably make me a lot happier. She didn't want to spend double the money for a big wedding here and have me not be that happy. So after much deliberating, since family is very important to the both of us, we chose Disney. We wanted to go with something that we know we will cherish for years. Plus we are saving my family a lot of money by doing the Escape Wedding and I know they can use that money toward something else.

Quite a few family members have been very supportive surprisingly. Not sure how my grandmother and grandfather on my dad's side will feel about it, but I know they will be happy to see me getting married. I don't know if I should regret it or not because my mother was complaining about it all weekend, but she kept saying it will be fine. She doesn't like having almost no control over the wedding and not getting as much bang for her buck. Plus I think she is sick of me talking about it for 10 hours (It's a 5 hour drive to St. Louis). I think she will get over it too.

It's so nice to be back and share my plans with everyone and catch up on everyone else's lives and trips! I hope there has been a lot of changing! I know there's a lot in my future! I've already been debating on a few resorts to stay at on our Disneymoon. I'm thinking POFQ or the mansions at POR, but who knows how long that will last! I haven't even chosen a date yet and won't be able to get one set 'til a few months from now. We're looking at the last Friday of September so we can hopefully get some low crowds, nice weather, catch the beginning of F&W and check out MNSSHP!
SO sorry to hear of your losses! Both my grandfathers passed within 3 days of each other last year and it was truly hard to cope. Like yours, however, both were in great spirits until the end: one passed in his sleep, the other during heart surgery. I hold close the fact that they didn't suffer and were positive even until the end!
Congrats on your wedding! I really wanted a Disney wedding but married into the military where my options were "pick a long weekend and hope I don't have duty" I made him promise for a vow renewal down the road at Disney, though, and we did APs for our 'honeymoon' the year we lived in Florida.

I am so glad I found this thread because DH thinks I'm crazy! In fact, I haven't called Disney since Saturday and he asked last night if I thought they would worry about me since it had been so long. I told him to be careful or I'd get really crazy and lose all frugality and end up CL somewhere!!!

Suuuure... we all know how it goes

It starts with an innocent peek. Then a quick glance at the rate. Maybe a quick tap of the calculator or a column on the spreadsheet. Next thing you know your heart is racing and *BAM* you're talking to a CM!


... or, at least, that's how it's always been for me. No matter which way I go, up or down, I swear I get an adrenaline rush!

Why is it such a rush!?!?!?!?!?!? I totally know what you are saying, and yes, it's a change, either up or down...doesn't matter!

I'm afraid I am going to end up like our dear Jeanette who managed to make so many changes on a reservation that it was frozen!!!

Hello all my RC ladies. Sorry I've been MIA.

Sunday while coughing I manage to injure my back. I was unable to sit or walk because of pain. Jessica called an ambulance for me. Had 6 very nice looking young men in my bedroom. Xrays were clear. Doctor gave me a narcotic pain killer after I asked him not to because of my bad reactions to them. I was so sick. They tried to rush me out of there while I was still sick and couldn't sit or walk yet. They weren't busy .... for awhile I was they only patient in the ER. Jessica had to go all daughter bear on them. Once my stomach was feeling better we decided if I could manage to get to the car I'd be better off at home ... laid in the back seat all the way home. What really makes me mad is they discharged me with no instructions. Should I ice? Should I heat? Should I move? Do I need to see another doctor? Nothing! They did send me home with a non narcotic pain killer which I'm able to take without a problem. Couldn't they have given me that in the hospital? Anyway I'm mostly flat on my back in bed. I am getting up and moving around every hour. Typing this on my phone ..... Keep posting you ladies are my entertainment. Hugs to all.

A couple of months ago my papa (my grandfather on my mother's side) passed away at the young age of 80 due to a few heart attacks that put him in the hospital for a week or so. We thankfully were able to say goodbye to him. Surprisingly he was chipper, cracking jokes and telling stories in the hospital. He was very accepting of what was happening, but it still didn't make it hurt any less for us. I was so grateful that DFi and I were able to see him in the hospital before he passed and that he got to see a picture of me in my wedding dress. Saturday was his 81st birthday so my mother, nana (my grandmother) and I visited his grave and brought balloons and flowers and went to the Cardinals game in St. Louis. My nana was praying for a win so hard and they won. It was worth every penny we spent on the tickets to see her so happy. My papa was a huge Cardinals fan (they even slaughtered the teams they were playing the weekend he passed away) and we knew it was only him and God answering her prayers.

Now with the good news.

My DBF of four years proposed to me a few months ago! And after a few months of searching for a venue and going through lots of frustration, my mother threw out the idea of having the wedding at Disney World seeing as it would probably make me a lot happier. She didn't want to spend double the money for a big wedding here and have me not be that happy. So after much deliberating, since family is very important to the both of us, we chose Disney. We wanted to go with something that we know we will cherish for years. Plus we are saving my family a lot of money by doing the Escape Wedding and I know they can use that money toward something else.

Quite a few family members have been very supportive surprisingly. Not sure how my grandmother and grandfather on my dad's side will feel about it, but I know they will be happy to see me getting married. I don't know if I should regret it or not because my mother was complaining about it all weekend, but she kept saying it will be fine. She doesn't like having almost no control over the wedding and not getting as much bang for her buck. Plus I think she is sick of me talking about it for 10 hours (It's a 5 hour drive to St. Louis). I think she will get over it too.

It's so nice to be back and share my plans with everyone and catch up on everyone else's lives and trips! I hope there has been a lot of changing! I know there's a lot in my future! I've already been debating on a few resorts to stay at on our Disneymoon. I'm thinking POFQ or the mansions at POR, but who knows how long that will last! I haven't even chosen a date yet and won't be able to get one set 'til a few months from now. We're looking at the last Friday of September so we can hopefully get some low crowds, nice weather, catch the beginning of F&W and check out MNSSHP!
Hannah Welcome Back!

Trish: My condolences to your family.

Sheila: I'm so sorry you've been getting that sort of news in such a cold, uncaring way. Social media can be more stressful than its worth -- more often than not.

All my Canadian pals: Happy Belated Thanksgiving! Hope everyone has some excellent meals and family time over the weekend.

Hannah: Sorry for your losses. Glad to see your return! Congratulations on the engagement -- very exciting times are in store.

Sue: Going to be posting any reno pics?!

Jen: Is that another one before the APs expire?!

Janet: Hope you didn't get too many dirty looks from the coworkers!
Loved the chit-chat.

---------------------------------

Well, this is the week for us. Found out last Friday that the end of this week will start furloughs for the hub's work. With the trip coming up, it's bad timing to say the least; I just can't seem to muster any enthusiasm with this hanging over us. I really should be packing and making lists but can't seem to focus on it. Anyway, enough of my whining. Taking Miss M to the dentist this afternoon for a check-up ... but she's got a tooth that has another one coming in over top of it. Not sure how they normally handle these things; I thought the adult teeth tend to push the baby teeth out but this one's a fighter. My offer to wiggle it goes rejected every time.
Miss so sorry about DH furlough this whole thing is just terrible

Sunday while coughing I manage to injure my back. I was unable to sit or walk because of pain. Jessica called an ambulance for me. Had 6 very nice looking young men in my bedroom. Xrays were clear. Doctor gave me a narcotic pain killer after I asked him not to because of my bad reactions to them. I was so sick. They tried to rush me out of there while I was still sick and couldn't sit or walk yet. They weren't busy .... for awhile I was they only patient in the ER. Jessica had to go all daughter bear on them. Once my stomach was feeling better we decided if I could manage to get to the car I'd be better off at home ... laid in the back seat all the way home. What really makes me mad is they discharged me with no instructions. Should I ice? Should I heat? Should I move? Do I need to see another doctor? Nothing! They did send me home with a non narcotic pain killer which I'm able to take without a problem. Couldn't they have given me that in the hospital? Anyway I'm mostly flat on my back in bed. I am getting up and moving around every hour. Typing this on my phone ..... Keep posting you ladies are my entertainment. Hugs to all.
Linda feel better back pain is the worst
