I'm sure you'll pass the test! He should have told you what you needed to study for.

I checked my documents. They are set to arrive on Wednesday. Our passports arrived today. We all look crabby. That's okay, cause we're smiling on the inside.

That was the same exact advice I gave my oldest son when he started college 3 years ago... no classes before ten and if you can, don't schedule any classes for Friday... but pretend you did and do all your homework that day.

So far it is working for him! By this time next year, I will be planning his college graduation party!!

That is great to hear! We got ours done a day or two after you did! The webpage to check what is going on with the passports has been down for maintenance for 3 weeks.

Hey - did I mention I got to perform my solo again this weekend? I messed up HUGE! I snapped a fan open and it flew out of my hand and landed behind me. I decided to try to be cute while picking it up.

At least it was a more laid back atmosphere...we opened the show as belly dancing bunnies...and gave out chocolate!!!!

The odd thing is that this type of tumor was growing in the pitutary area/cavity and was wrapped around the left optic nerve, hence her recent vision loss. She might regain back some of that vision! it is a wait and see. We are waiting in ICU to see her. It's been a long 13 hours, since 6am. She is doing well though the nuero said. they are sending off the tumor for other opinions, since it is an odd case. these tumors are almost always benign, which hers was too. but it still did its damage.

she will remain on her hormone therapy and anti seizure drugs now too.

she is really going to look forward to this cruise now more than ever!!!!

thanks for all the prayers and pixie dust- it worked!!!!
Yay! Glad to hear she's alright!

Very cute! I had a pair similar to those, but they hurt my feet so I gave them to my sis in law...I think...

Hmmm...I guess I didn't multiquote nearly as much as I thought!

See, I don't care if you threw a fan and it hit me in the head. I'm just truly impressed that you can belly dance. I could try the belly dancing, and that fan would get lost in a jiggle.

not a chance! The fans have 1.5m (a little more than 1 1/2 yds) of silk attached. AND the jiggle is the point!!!!

The bellydance community around here celebrates women of ALL sizes and shapes. It is truly a wonderful gathering of women helping each other appreciate the way they look, without pressure to fit a certain size. My troupe has an age range of girls in their twenties to a 50+ Hot Grandma. This group is the first really supportive bunch of women I have had around me in RL.

But I still wish I would have clocked the guy who kept sneaking across the back of the stage to get beer! go around!

Congrats on the almost college graduation!!! I seem to recall my parents had a lot of fun once all the kids were out of college - lots of disposable income!!!

I've felt that about exams before, and done fine! Best of luck!

We don't get to choose our class times, they are given by the higher powers- meaning i have 3 9am's a week!!!

At least I have Thursdays off so I can chat on Wednesday!

Good Morning!

TORN! Opinions?
Hopefully this doesn't get lost when the thread is shut down.

I can't decide if I want to do the DCL Birthday Celebration for my stateroom when we arrive or not. I know DH is really not good at Disney planning, but it feels weird to go to the trouble myself.

Anyone ever do one of these stateroom celebrations? Are they worth it?

TIA!

They are expensive for what you get. We can get a complementary cake in the dinning room for him instead if you want.
