Thanks for the kind words about Josie.

Children are so funny between 2 and 4. Emily's "I'm ready to ride" made me think of something that happened to us the other day. Joe was picking on Josie and she looked up at him and said "Cut me some swack Daddy!". I almost pee'd my pants it was so funny. Her timing and tone were perfect. I have no idea how they can be so clever.

We were at the mall at the butt crack of dawn yesterday so there wasn't much of a crowd-we had the place to ourselves. That was the perfect environment to do some major shopping. Nana was there to help corral wiggly little girls. It was fun.
Cute build a bears Avery made a Ellie the elephant there last weekend and lost her 2nd tooth! Glad nana was feeling good enough to go shopping!

So glad things went well at the bank! How is the housing market? I am guessing that you think selling your house before closing on the other is doable-or you would not be doing it. May closing date-early before the 15th or late after the 25th is good I think I will cross my fingers that all goes well.
The housing market here has picked up a little. We're hoping the $8000 tax credit from the stimulus package will inspire people to buy our home. From the research we've done houses around us have sold within 1-4 months. Selling price price was within $5k of asking price. We've got our fingers crossed that it will sell quickly. We would be looking at our first payment for both to be due around the 1st of July. I"m really working the numbers trying to re-convince Joe that we can still do WDW. His mind changes every 3 minutes literally...

She is a diva isn't she I need to get the mermaids out of the house before they are history. Josie attempted to open one last night and I made sure to buy each of them one too.

If you can believe this, Joe purchased his first Mickey shirt last year. He mentioned that he wished he had bought a few others. I took the liberty to buy a couple for him while he was at the Bass Pro Shop on Sunday. He likes them though. The rolling suitcases are pink and have the princesses on them. There were only $10. After I walked out I thought...hmm maybe I should have picked up two more. By then Nana was ready to move on so there was no going back. Joe is working this weekend so I may try to sneak back down there.

The girls love Build A Bear. BABW sent me a coupon for a free animal or $12 off which made the experience much more affordable. Nana is a trooper I tell ya. She was so tickled to get to take them to BABW. The girls have been blessed with grandparents who take an active interest and truly love them.

We must see a pic of cute little Avery and her two missing teeth!

Thanks Lessa! I really hope we aren't let down. The listing agent told our agent that it could be up to a week before we hear anything on our offer because the owner now lives out of town in one of his other two homes. I don't know if Joe's nerves can hold out for a week. He is driving me crazy.

The house is just beautiful and the yard looks amazing too. i have my fingers crossed for that your house sells and they take the offer for the new house . Hopefully you don't close until June though and you can still go on your Disney trip. I love all the stuff you got from Disney Store, very cute shirts. Kaylee has that Hello kitty from build a Bear too.

Thanks Nichole! The later the closing the better I hope we do get to follow through with the trip because from the sounds of it, Lindsey and Kaylee should hit it off at the DIS meet. They have many similar interests.

I have been wracking my brain trying to come up with ways to keep our trip as planned. I am thinking of cancelling my reservation through AAA because they want us to pay off the trip by the end of next week. On the other hand if I am booked through WDW I have to pay the trip off by the 1st. This will allow me more cushion time to find out what is going to happen. I'm kind of disappointed in AAA because they aren't returning my calls. I'd rather not cancel with them if they will give me the window that WDW allows but I"m getting really annoyed by the lack of concern.

Okay do you think I should rebook? I called WDW and they have to have a letter from AAA relinquishing their rights for them to take over.

Good luck on the house! It is simply beautiful!!!

I'm don't know what I'd do about the trip, my concern is if I rebooked would there be a fine with AAA. I'm not sure how the whole thing works though.

That is so strange that AAA is making you pay the trip off early, I can't see any reason that they should be doing that. That being said if canceling with them makes your trip plans more flexible I would do it. There should only be a minimal fee, $20. for canceling.

Thanks Leanne and Lessa!

I left a message with the AAA agent basically telling her I was going to cancel and rebook with Disney so that I would have more time to see if we would be moving. She called back and said that it was their policy to ask you to pay it 10 days in advance. BUT, then she said that if I called her with my card number on the 1st it would be no problem. HOOORAY!!!! It's going to work out! I called Disney this morning to see what my options were and I was so disappointed. The lady I spoke with was so rude. I have never had that type of experience with Disney reservation specialists. A bit disappointing really.

It's good to here you aren't going to have the hassle of rebooking, and making sure everything is the same, and so on and so forth.

Any word on the house yet?!

No news on the house yet... The seller and his agent are supposed to meet around noon today. We should know more this afternoon.

In the meantime, Joe is driving me crazy about vacation. One minute he says we must go and the next minute he says that he doesn't know if we can. His indecisiveness is really, really annoying. I'm trying to stay cool and not let it rattle me until we know for sure what's going on with the house. If the deal doesn't work out I would just be arguing with him for nothing. I'm lazy. I don't want to waste the energy until its worth it.

Hopefully, you'll here something soon! You guys must be on pins and needles! I really hope everything works out and you get the house and get to go to Disney. Besides, you're going to need a vacation after all of the house stress!

I had the follow up interview to last week's interview this morning. I think it went really well. They have an interview tomorrow with the other remaining candidate and I should hear something in the next week. Just what I need...more waiting for an answer. I have to get the Girl Scout Cookies out of my house or they are goners. Stress eating is a huge weakness of mine. I was eating thin mints at 12:30 this morning.
