Thank you so much Amy! You totally made my day!!!!!
I am glad to lighten your day. Once I sent it, I had some qualms.....my DD goes to a small Christian school and many of the parents would not be amused by my antics!! I am so not offendable (is that a word), that I step over the line accidentally sometimes!!

I just thought, how funny is that, a voodoo kit in the mail, who doesn't like that?

I may have missed it, but do we have an image for the groop tshirts? I know we're doing tie dye one day, and colors and this year's tshirt, but weren't we also going to do a new one for next year? Maybe I just missed that discussion.
I missed the MA this time around too. I actually have to work that Saturday, and have been asking for a lot of time off of late, so probalby couldn't have done it anyway....but gosh,the spring one was SO fun!!!

The tshirt discussion has been running in weak little circles, but I think most of us are LOVING the pirate/princess design on the first page. I am not one for cutsie, so really love it. (the tink was a bit too too for me, but I wore it with pride!!).

Hey everyone....miss you all!!

Accidentally? Yeah, right...

A voodoo kit would be very cool, you know, just in case...

Okay I didn't mean to imply that it is an accident EVERY time!!!!

And I do agree, everyone could use a voodoo kit at some time in their lives!!!

Michelle, I'm another person who thought Heather's design rocked. And I love the pirate princess theme.

No way could I do it left-handed... btw, have you seen there is some gadget you can buy that is supposed to make your wii controller more accurate? It was in an ad (maybe for a toy store). Looks like it is made by wii (or some authorized third party).

Oh and just wanted everyone to know I totally stink at Buzz and Donna totally rocks!!! I had 46,000ish and she had 206,000ish!

I learned everything I know from Stacielee. At least about Buzz and TSM. And yes, I have to allot specified game time or I wouldn't get anything else done either. That's awful there is no online game play with it though.

Anyway, I am very grateful to Mr. CA...

Hi Ladies!

Just wanted to check in from Switzerland. I've had the chance to post on facebook from my iPhone, but getting "real" internet access on a computer has been difficult. All is well here. We've moved into our new apartment, my husband has started work and the kids have started school. I am taking care of the house and cooking for the time being, though I did have a job interview with a recruiter last Friday (for a job that I would love!), so hopefully all will work out soon!

Switzerland is very beautiful. We live in a village with farms and vineyards, a cheese shop and a butcher (and also apartment complexes....new meets old, eh?). So far, we're the only Americans here as far as I can tell. I've had a couple runs since I"ve been here: one in the forest along the river and another uphill in the vineyards and farms. Incredibly beautiful but I"m way off track for any WDW Jan '10 marathon training. I"m thinking that's something that's probably going to "fall off the plate" with all the new transition stuff moving to Switzerland.

I take the kids into school by bus everyday, which is about 30 minutes each way. Then I pick them up later and during the day am basically trying to figure out where to shop and do laundry and take care of the garbage and all those little things which take so much longer to do here since I don't know yet how anything works. Spend a lot of time and money not accomplishing very much, it feels like.

Well, I'm not sure why I'm getting internet connection here at home, since our connectivity doesn't get turned on until the 24th. But I better post this before I lose my Internet connection.

Take care ladies!!

DBF and I are both getting really good bonuses in November, but the responsible thing to do is to start up our savings again instead of going to Disneyland. I have been looking forward to our first Christmas trip. We purchased AP's when we were there in March and now I'm wondering if that was even worth it now. I know I said I probably wouldn't make the Diva trip...and that's still up in the air so we'll see. My AP would still be good then so it's very possible.

I just really feel sick about December...I'm glad I hadn't told Ayden about it.
Just wanted to tell you we have a lot in common! My sons dad just does things when it is fun for him! BUT my DBF is THE BEST "Chaddy" to him in the world Chin up, you never know when some pixie dust might come your way!

It's not too late to sign up for MouseAdventure in December! I just registered yesterday and there are still openings. This will be my first (and probably only) time doing it. My two sons and I are Ducks Quack Attack. Now I need to start working on some shirts.

Morning divas!

I am glad all the mini meeters had fun! That means our oct meet is next right??? YAY!!!

Can't wait!

For those on facebook you already know this but we drove ALL the way downtown to the IMAX and it wasn't playing anymore! I was SO dissapointed. This is the first time in ALL the Harry Potters movies that I haven't seen it at the theaters. We usually go like the first weekend it comes out but when the last one came out we decided to see it at the IMAX and it was REALLY neat so we decided to do that again but it doesn't come out at IMAX till about a month after it comes out in the regular theaters and when it did we were in D.C. and then the week after we got back I had my surgery and I haven't felt up to GOING in forever, then Shelby got sick, then Shane and on and on. It has just been one thing after the other! It is weird too cuz the girls NEVER get sick and this year has just been a really bad year. So now I have to wait till it comes out on video I guess.

Anyway today I am off to work and then tomorrow I have to help Lynn open a bank account and then wed I have 2 doctor apts and mom and I are going to have lunch downtown in between them both and then Thursday my friend gets here from Pennyslyvania. So I am really excited for that. We have a big get together on Friday night up in Yuba City for everyone that is arriving and we are going to do our own "meet and greet" with pizza and cake at the hotel where everyone is staying and then the actual party is on Saturday at a restaurant up there. Not sure what is happening on Sunday yet. My parents are going up to Truckee with my cousins from San Diego but I don't know if any of the relatives that are still here are going to get together for brunch or anything but my friend is here till Tues so we will either get together with the family or do something with just her. Then on Monday her and I will be alone as everyone will be gone and my group will be back to school and work. So she and I will probably go shopping or something. So I am really looking forward to it all.

Then once this weekend it is over it is not long before the trip!!!!

Plus MORE good tv starts this week! Yahoo! Heros and DWTS starts tonight for those that watch those shows!

Anyway have a GREAT day all and TTYL!

DL 1st trip 76 last trip 3/14 next trip 6/15
DW 1st trip 5/02 last trip 11/10 next trip 6/16

AmySue--I think you would find it very difficult to offend me!

Jen--thanks for checking in! I've been following your adventures on FB, too, and I think it is so exciting!!!

Good morning ladies!!!

Stacie, glad to hear you are loving your new game!

Vicki, we are all glad you moved to CA and we've had the chance to have you as part of our group.

Wendy and Courtney, good to see you both here! Don't be a stranger. Just be strange.

Tina, what a cool surprise from AmySue! I'd love that.

Michelle, we haven't made any final decisions on the tee. Far from it. Once anything is decided on, you know you can always find it on the front page. So don't worry about missing out.

Jen, good to see you posting. I've loved following your adventures so far on Facebook. Keep in touch!

Donna and AmySue, I think everyone, myself included, loves the pirate princess design. What we need to do now is figure out how to make that design large enough to appear on a tee. And what wording we want to use. Anyone know how to do that??? I am clueless about that sort of thing.

Cassi, thanks for the link to the pics! I will definitely check those out. MNSSHP is my favorite. MVMCP was fun, but I'm a Halloween gal. Very cool y'all got to see the headless horseman.

Carol, love the name; Ducks Quack Attack.

Kelly, sorry you missed out on HP. What a bummer.

I hope everyone else is doing great and having a good morning. I posted on Facebook but in case anyone missed it, I broke my toe yesterday. Just the pinky toe, but still. Ouch! So today I'm going to rest it as much as I can.

I did a quick search for pirate princess and I'm still looking but this caught my eye. I like the pink on the black with the pink underneath. The underneath pink could even be long sleeved if it was cold. And it has the bling that so many of you like.

What do you think? I'm not saying this EXACT one mind you, just this general concept. Is this the direction we want to head?? Instead of Pirate Princess it could say something else. OR say that on top, and on bottom say something about the DIS Divas Trip.

I like Heather's design too, but I think it would be very difficult to make it work on a t-shirt. The design itself is squared, so it would only work on a pocket or something like that.

I love the pirate princess concept, so maybe something simple like this (ignore the words there)

This is along the same lines as what Beth posted, but it would be easy to make a transfer from. Just an idea......

Here's one on Zazzle so it can just be ordered and customized like the Tink tees. Nice and easy for those of us who are not good at making one. LOL

I'm not nuts about the actual skull, but I'm liking the pink on black.

Hello Divas

Just a quick "hey" from me today.

But I do have to say that Bree & I had an absolutely marvelous time this weekend. We had a Concierge room at PP and Dawn & Cheryl included us on their GC Concierge room and we just spent the whole weekend going from lounge to room to lounge to room. We had the best time ever with them eating, drinking and visiting. Oh we did spend 8 hours in the parks on Sat. The mini meet was so fun. Sarah is indeed so sweet and personable. And her family is adorable. And I was happy to see the others, too. Bree & I did Splash Mtn as our last ride (about 5 pm) and it broke right when we were ready to go up the hill before the big final drop. We were all led out through the back by some trash bins and stuff. Some people tried to take pix and the CM's were yelling "turn off your cameras!". It was interesting to say the least.

Have a good day everyone, and Beth, stay off that toe - OUCH!

DH~You will forever be in my heart
