Hey Ali! I pm'd the Lumar. Is he checking them? I told him we got to hear all the dirt on him, it was time to hear the dirt on you. Of course I'm sure there isn't any, but it was a ploy to get him on here.

You aren't getting the free dining? I thought it was available for your dates. Your costumes sound great. You're right, If I saw you in the Pokemon costumes!

I can't WAIT to see you in your costumes! I'm so jealous you get to do 2 parties. That's so cool.

I need you to send my husband a post card and tell him Mickey thinks he needs to take his family on a vacation. It won't happen, but the pressure just might break him!!

Hey. I am enjoying your PTR. The rabbits are so cute. I can't wait to read more. Are the Coffee pot swaps easy?

I too am in the midst of trying to put away money for the trip! It isn't easy! Good luck with the extra work you're doing. Don't kill yourself and stay healthy.

It certainly isn't. I had a great paycheck 2 weeks ago, ended up spending almost $500 to get my car FIXED, then this past Friday I had a mediocre paycheck and ended up having to pay $85 to re-register my car, plus $20 for the emissions test. I'm hoping that my ingenious get-rich-quick scheme works...in the meantime, I'll try not to catch the swine flu

I have never done one before but it sounds easy enough! You just sign up on one of the threads (even if your dates are taken you can be put on a wait list as people's plans change all the time), get in touch with the person before you to make pick up arrangements, and the person after you to make drop off arrangements. You leave the item with the front desk at check out if the person after you is not getting there until after you leave.

He hasn't checked them yet...he goes online every day to read all kinds of other junk (wrestling updates, online comics, etc) but his email and the DIS are two things he never checks. That boy has over 400 emails in his inbox that would drive me nuts!

Free dining is available, but the problem is that you can only add dining to a package. We have two ressies: the package is only for 2 dates (10/23 - 10/24) and then we have a separate ressie for 10/25 - 11/1 because we got a 40% off PIN for room only. Since I can't add dining to the room only ressie, I would have been able to get it for only 2 nights. I'm a tad bummed but 40% off the room rate is better than free dining...especially since it's only "FREE" if you get the CS Dining Plan. The regular plan is an "upgrade."

And I will definitely send your hubby a postcard! LOL I'll try my best to convince him!

An extra $200!!!!!

OK so my get rich quick scheme didn't go EXACTLY as planned, but I did get an extra $211.26

I was reading a thread on the budget board and read enough positive reviews to sell my old gold jewelry. I used US Gold Buyers, the process was extremely easy...I sent them the package yesterday afternoon at 3:30pm and they called me today at 5pm with the amount! I needed $300 for food for our trip...I have $100 saved that my mom gave me for Christmas and now I'm getting the $211 from USGB so I met my goal! It's not the $900 that some people on that thread were bragging about but for 3 tiny gold chains, 4 rings, 2 charms, and 8 pairs of tiny little earrings, $211 is not bad. And I didn't have to pay for shipping!

I'm going to keep collecting stuff and see what I can come up with before we leave in October.

55 days to go!!

OK so Lumar read his PMs yesterday...and then did absolutely nothing about it! He's so aggrivating! I'm still waiting for that smiley punching the other smiley in the face...I have a real use for that one!

He asked me if he was being recruited into a cult

I told him no, but now that I think about it.....

DME stuff should be coming soon! When do people usually get it? Like 40 days out or something, right?

Well he isn't any fun is he?? This is a cult, I truly believe that. Do you have any consignment shops around you? You could take some clothes you don't wear into them and they sell them for you. That would be even MORE money. Glad the gold thing worked out for you. I did pretty good at a gold party I went to. I have a bunch of silver to sell, but I don't know if anyone buys that.

Wow...mining for gold, huh? History really does repeat itself! I've been trying to find more to sell but I think more people are onto this than I originally thought. My sister sold all of hers, my mom sold all of hers....we do a lot of tag sales to raise money for the shelter but no one ever donates their gold jewelry.... I'm keeping my eyes open though! That was the quickest $200 I ever made!

wow...if only I had waited another 2 weeks to sell I probably could have doubled my money! Oh well...beggers can't be choosers! I'll take what I can get! We do a tag sale every other weekend so I keep looking for stuff that people donate that is actually worth money.....

Just found this and wanted to comment, so please excuse the comments that relate to when you started this....

Woah, first off, how can a health insurance company be going broke? They are (no offense to you), one of the main problems with health care costs.

To your animal stories! Oh my gosh! What an awful couple of days you had. Cracked windshield, rabbit abusers and more!

Oh my gosh, Minnie is SO cute!

Loved the "random thoughts" and cable bills SUCK!

The baby bunnies are adorable! Love Flower!!

Cool to gold money!!!

Hi! Thanks for joining me! And thanks for continuing to read after my little rant there.... I was having a REALLY bad day! LOL

Minnie is still available for adoption...I dropped that little hint last night but I think it fell on deaf ears. He is talking about keeping 2 of the baby bunnies we are fostering which would be OK with me but I want a dog, dang it! Flower is my favorite, too! He is one of the ones we might keep.

15 more minutes of work and then I'm outta here! Hopefully I'll have a little update for you guys tonight if I can drag myself away from the TV.... I'm not normally a TV watcher but lately I've been watching it a lot.
