Morning all!

Thanks for the WB's. It is good to be home!

Courtney I am very sorry for your family's loss! My prayers to all of you!!

Stacielee good luck with your doc appts. I hope all goes well and they get everything figured out. I know several people with thyroid issues but with meds it is fairly managable. Keep us informed!!

Beth glad to hear that your doc apts are in the clear! That is good news!

Sara LOVE that cake! That is amazing! You are talented girl!

Jane that is great about your DW trip! I am jealous! We have had a trip planned every year for the past 9 years and this is the first time we have NONE planned. It is kind of weird and sad in a way. But I know we will go back some day. We just have OTHER things we want to do for awhile. I know that we will ALWAYS go to DL every year no matter what at least once a year so I will get my disney fix that way but we have our big road trip next summer and then we want to go to Europe in the next few years IF we can afford it! That is the key. I would love to go to Hawaii again someday and take the kids to Mexico as well. So LOTS of things I would like to do that are non-Disney but as always money is always the deciding factor LOL.

Stacerita hope you had fun and "survived" your day at MM. I've never been there but I've been to parks similar to that up here in our area. They sure make you appreciate Disney after you go to them. I'm sure you had fun though!!

Today I have TONS of laundry to tackle! All that post vacation fun! Lynn has her training for her job. I can't remember if I told you guys but she got a job at A&W so she goes to that today and we are not sure when she starts yet but probably sometime next week. So she has to do that today and Shane has to take that VA test that he was supposed to take before we left but he rescheduled. I plan to do absolutely NOTHING but laundry. For whatever stupid reason this issue that I am having is also affecting my sciatic nerve so between the two I am really out of commission. The sucky part is I can't find any comfortable position. Neither sitting, laying or anything helps so it makes it hard. I have my follow up with my uro on Monday from way back when I had that surgery and THAT issue has still been bothering me too on top of everything else but that has been going on for the last two years so I have almost gotten used to it by now. But when you have pain in that region it is hard to tell if the pain from one area isn't affecting the other. And the uro TOLD me that might happen. Like phantom pains. Like if you have a tooth ache in your bottom tooth your top tooth hurts too if that makes sense. So I am not sure if my bladder is still ACTUALLY bothering me or if it is just hurting because of everything surrounding it. So we shall see what he says but I ALSO have to call the GI doc back and tell him that I am still in pain and hopefully he will refer me to the colo/rectal specialist so I can get these issues fixed! And don't ask me WHY this is affecting my sciatic nerve. The only thing I can think of is I am sitting weird because I am in pain and since I am not evenly distributing my weight it is tweaking my back and thus affecting my nerve. Whatever it is it sucks I know that. All I know is I have NEVER had something go on like this for almost 3 months straight and it is getting REALLY old AND upsetting being in constant pain and I can't do anything about it. I have been eating pain pills like candy and they barely even take the edge off. I just hope that SOMEONE can do something! I am really afraid that Oct will be ruined if they can't get this fixed cuz there is no WAY I could go on rides right now.

Oh well I have a few months still!

Anyway one more week till school starts so we got the supply list in the mail so we have to run out sometime either this weekend or next week and get that and then Monday they are posting the teachers so the girls are excited to find out who their teachers are and who will be in their classes with them.

I'll be honest I am not looking forward to getting up at 6 again LOL.

Anyway I am going to get off now cuz this sitting is starting to hurt.

Hope everyone has a GREAT day and see you all later!

He wasn't sure and I was telling him about the time that I flew on the other one coming home from Las Vegas a few years ago. Then I saw that our plane was arriving at our gate and.....it was the Tinkerbell plane! I was so excited, I felt like a little kid. No one else seemed to care, not even the people sitting near us wearing Disneyland shirts. DH was taking pictures of it and of me sitting by the window with the plane in the background. Then of course we had to stop the line while boarding the plane so he could get another picture of me. It was so cool, the doors over the carry-on luggage compartments are all painted blue with stars (pixie dust) and pictures of Tinkerbell and the castle. I think there are just the two planes and now I have been on both of them, neither time when I was going to Disneyland though!

We are staying at the Royal Palms Resort. Wow, this place is awesome! Yay for good deals on Phoenix hotels in the summer! I have never been here but DH used to photograph weddings in Phoenix so has been here a few times. It was built in the 1920's and has recently been renovated and is just gorgeous with 5-star service. We are getting ready to take a long walk through the neighborhood around Camelback Mountain and then spend some tiime at the pool before taking a drive through the desert with the top down on our rented convertible.

Have a great day everyone!
What a nice get away. I have never seen a plane painted up with Tinkerbell.. How fun!!

DH & I will be going to Costco. We our monthly costco trips.
I love Costco too!!

I hope everyone is well. I'm going to go back and read what I missed.

Have a great day!
Aw Courtney, I'm sorry to hear about your Aunt. My prayers go to you and your family.

Hi everyone! I am back and jet-lagged. We had a Canadian holiday and it was fantastic. What I love about the place is that you can enjoy all their great food (maple sugar cotton candy, crepes, yum) and still come back the same weight because you walk so much.

Sadly, I was nowhere near Theresa's territory, but on the other side. We saw Montreal and the city of Quebec, which was like being dropped into a Medieval city - incredibly charming with stone walls, narrow cobblestone streets, and polite people everywhere. The best thing was a fabulous, free, 45 min. multi-media presentation projected across a huge grain building by the water. It ran once at night. At times it looked like a train was running across it, or horses... the most amazing was when it looked like it was on fire, complete with smoke.

We saw this from the street and then our last night we looked out the window and realized we could see it from our room in the hotel!

I've read the last few pages - Beth, I am sooo happy to hear the good news on the no-biopsy!

Stacielee, I've been on thyroid meds for years. It's really easy. The problem with diagnosing hypothyroid conditions is many doctors do not treat it unless the numbers are obvious. But a good endocrinologist will be more sensitive to mild cases.

Tina, I'm glad you repeated this story here as I'm not on FB. I would have been steaming! Why do things like that happen at the worst time? Sounds like you managed to pull it off though!

COURTNEY, I'm so sorry for the loss of your aunt.

Huh. I see. Well, good thing you are taking steps to get it checked out. I'm glad the blood test came back ok. My family (my mom, aunts and grandma) all take medication for their thyroid. I'm sure at some point I will too.

Good luck!!! That place scares me! The people and the rides. lol
You know it scares me... <s> It's just a place I avoid, being a ride wimp.

Beth, you too on the thyroid, eh? Symptoms of hypothyroidsim = cold extremities (hands, feet), getting cold easily, falling asleep in the middle of the day, weight gain. I had all of those. The easiest way to test yourself is to take your temperature before you get out of bed in the morning for 5 days. Try not to move, have the thermometer by the bed. If it registers below 98.6 every day, and you are having symptoms or have a family history, it's time to see a good endocrinologist.

KELLY, that is so great that you took the girls on this wonderful, educational trip. All kids should be so lucky. I'm sorry about all the challenges on your body though. BTW, SW - if you fly them again, the secret is to get on a computer as soon as you are able - I think 24 hours ahead, and confirm. You'll get in the A boarding group that way and now they have the number assignment as well (at least on the flights I've been on). I know this time it wouldn't have helped you since your connection was late.

Can't believe no one would move to let a mom sit by her child. <sigh>
What hotel did you stay at in NY? It sounds like a find.

Hi VICKI! You beat me back home. My favorite part of Costco is the sampling because there are never any calories if you didn't order it. Can't wait to hear about today's tour.

CRISTOBEL, LOVE the new haircut! STACIERITA, once I do laundry I'll check out the trip report. I know it will be a fun read. Hi to Tracey, Theresa, Heather, Molly, Cheryl, Melody, Linda, Bree, Sarah (that cake, beautiful!!!) and everyone else. I've really missed not getting my daily diva reports!

I am using a Disney only travel agent and I love, love, love her! She and I literally talked for almost an hour today and all I was really calling to do was to make my deposit.

It's funny: I've only been on two WDW vacations, but I feel like something of an expert. And yet, I am totally using a travel agent if for no other reason than it means that I won't have to be up at 4 am one morning to make all of our ADRs! It will be fabulous to have someone else worrying about getting LeCellier dinner ressies , etc. And, if and when any discounts become available for our travel dates she will automatically rebook us to get the best deal. Oh, and the best part was that the initial price she got us was $100 less than I was able to find on WDW site!

Have a fantabulous weekend everyone!!!
Hi Jane!! Your trip sounds fabulous!! Can I say that I am jealous?? Your travel agent sounds like she is really good at what she does. When we made our trip to WDW, I knew more than my travel agent did. That was thanks to the DIS!!

I was in line at the register, and the couple in front of me had separate orders and an expired membership. So it took a while for them to finish up. And just when I handed the clerk my membership card, the power went out. I waited maybe 20 minutes or so, because I needed my stuff! The power finally came up for about 1 minute and went out again. And then we started smelling smoke, and people started running from behind closed doors yelling "evacuate, evacuate!" So I left in a somewhat orderly fashion without my goods, and had to go to another Costco across town.

Fun times!
Hey now....that is scary!! What a bother for you!!!

Hi Melody! Yeah, that's the problem I often hear from disboarders... that they knew more than their travel agents about WDW. Also that they would have been able to do any changes faster. But it sounds like Jane has found a good one.

Thanks everyone for all the good thoughts. I'm kinda addicted to you girls so even if I can't make the trip...you can't get rid of me that easy. I'm here to stay!!

So I had something WONDERFUL happen to me on Thursday night I am dying to share with someone. Those of you on my Facebook know I've been having to keep this a secret until Sunday. Since I'm safe to share it on here.....here goes....

My mom invited Ayden and I to dinner on Thursday night. We met them right inside the door of the restaurant. We were standing there talking when all of a sudden my niece and nephew from WASHINGTON walked in and said can we join you? OMG I about died..........I just hugged them and immediately started bawling like a baby. I have missed them so so SO very much. Especially lately. I've been in a real funk lately and just missing my sister and the kids immensly. So that was my surprise. They are surprising their other grandparents here in town tomorrow morning at church so I haven't been able to be public about it until after that since my sisters mother in law is on my FB friends list. Everyone on my FB thinks I was either engaged or pregnant. Thursday was our 3 year anniversary
So needless to say I have been spending as much time with them as possible.
They leave on Tuesday. Now something sad brought them here.....my sisters best friend just lost her Grandma and they drove down for her service. They brought my niece and oldest nephew with them. Too bad it wasn't the whole family but right now I feel on top of the world to have them here with me.
Here's a picture of us right after the teary reunion.

Good morning girls.

Kelly, it's great to have you back safe and sound from your trip. I sooooooooo hope that your pain can be resovled. That sounds just HORRIBLE!


Well, I've pretty much had a crappy week. First, I felt sick most of the week (starting Tuesday morning).....week, tired, shaky, and the back of the neck hurt really bad and then the pain went up the back of my head, so I had a really bad headache too. And I hardly ever get headaches, so it was just strange for me. Anyway, that finally seemed to subside as of yesterday. Maybe it was some kind of virus?

Then, I've been experiencing lots of hot flashes this week. Usually I would only get them at night when I was in bed, but this week I've started to get them during the day too I don't know......I've heard that women can start to experience these things even in their mid to late 30s, and I am 39 years old as of Labor day, but still, aren't I too young for this? Okay, maybe don't answer that - LOL.

Finally, my brother was taken to jail Thursday night.....again. It wasn't a big deal really, and the judge dropped all the charges because they were bogus. (One of my SIL's girlfriends, just as a big joke and to be evil, decided to call the police up here to make a report that my brother was threatening to kill one of his daughters. Can you believe that?!!! Yeah, she did it just to get my brother arrested because she hates him.) My SIL didn't even know her friend did that, until while they were watching TV after just getting home from having pizza somewhere, the doorbell rings, and it's the police. SURPRISE, we're here to take you to jail from a call we recieved from Scottsdale AZ. Both my brother and SIL were like, "Whaaaaa?!" Now my SIL wants a divorce from my brother because her friend down in Scottsdale, the one who called the police with the bogus charge, keeps telling her she needs to divorce my brother. Interestingly, the friend from Scottsdale has been divorced 3 times now. I guess now that she doesn't have a man to divorce herself, she's getting her divorce needs fulfilled by manipulating her friends into getting one. My SIL is particularly easy to manipulate because she has fairly sever bi-polar disorder. Anyway, blah blah blah.

Personally, I think my brother should get a divorce. Maybe he could have a normal life for a change. Stay friends with my SIL of course so they could both be good parents for their kids, but a divorce and living apart would give him the opportunity to get out of the mayhem that my SIL and her friends create. My brother has a hard time with the idea of divorce because he's been taking care of my SIL (with her severe bi-polar) for 14 years now, and I think he fears what will happen to her and/or the children if he's not there to make sure she's taking her meds.

Family drama......gotta love it.

Sorry to lay all this out there on you guys. Geesh, I'm not a very good Diva am I? I don't post anything for a couple of days, and then I come on here and just lay all this crummy, boring stuff on you. Seriously, I'm done and won't bore you anymore. Ummmm, lets change subjects......

.....so, about our ladies trip......

Sarah - LOVE that Mickey cake! It is SOOOOO CUTE! Hey, make me one for my birthday and ship it down to the HOJO. Well, I guess I won't be at the HOJO right on my birthday, but I'll be there right before my birthday, so ship one down anyway.

That is a fun surprise, Janelle! Not exactly what I was thinking, but great none the less.

Interestingly, the friend from Scottsdale has been divorced 3 times now. I guess now that she doesn't have a man to divorce herself, she's getting her divorce needs fulfilled by manipulating her friends into getting one. My SIL is particularly easy to manipulate because she has fairly sever bi-polar disorder. Anyway, blah blah blah.

Personally, I think my brother should get a divorce. Maybe he could have a normal life for a change. Stay friends with my SIL of course so they could both be good parents for their kids, but a divorce and living apart would give him the opportunity to get out of the mayhem that my SIL and her friends create. My brother has a hard time with the idea of divorce because he's been taking care of my SIL (with her severe bi-polar) for 14 years now, and I think he fears what will happen to her and/or the children if he's not there to make sure she's taking her meds.

Family drama......gotta love it.

Sorry to lay all this out there on you guys. Geesh, I'm not a very good Diva am I? I don't post anything for a couple of days, and then I come on here and just lay all this crummy, boring stuff on you. Seriously, I'm done and won't bore you anymore. Ummmm, lets change subjects......

.....so, about our ladies trip......
Oh Capri. What a nightmare!!! Now I can see why you were trolling for a new sister on FB!!!!!!!
But you know you can always vent with us. No problem girlie! Lots of love to you!!!

Thanks! I was thinking about getting red but it fades too quickly so maybe I'll go for a really dark brown.

Thank you, I thought they looked pretty cool. My eyes are are kind of big and almond-shaped but when I wear glasses you can't really tell.

I stayed home from work today. My aunt (My Dad's brother's wife) passed away yesterday, so I stayed home with my parents. Later we'll be heading to my grandparents house.

I hope everyone is well. I'm going to go back and read what I missed.

Have a great day!
I'm sorry for your loss

Thanks!
So far all of my classes are still here but I don't know where to look to see what classes have been cancelled.

Can you believe that?!!! Yeah, she did it just to get my brother arrested because she hates him.) My SIL didn't even know her friend did that, until while they were watching TV after just getting home from having pizza somewhere, the doorbell rings, and it's the police.

Capri--what a mess! Your poor brother! Why is it that really nice guys end up with these high-maintenance women? I just don't get it. Is there a possibility that your brother could get primary custody? Courts are more receptive to the husband having custody these days--he sounds like the more stable influence. How old are the kids? I agree that he needs a more normal life.

Glad you're feeling better--some of your symptoms also sound like hypoglycemia. I know that happens to me.

As for everyone else, Donna glad you're back; Stacerita, hope you're having fun at MM (at least it's cooler this weekend); Cristabel--four days!!!!; Molly--I missed your post but glad to see you; Janelle--glad you're getting to see your family; Kelly--sorry you're feeling bad--it's probably sitting weird that's causing the sciatic nerve issue; and everyone else--have a GREAT day and I'll check back in later.

Oh, P.S.--I got a text from Dawn--quote: "I'm in moving (place where it's hot where evil people go after they die)! Send jello shots!"

Oh, and Capri--if it were me I'd seriously be looking at and talking to the police about charging SIL's friend with making a false police report . . . . .

Happy Saturday ladies!!

I only have a minute but just wanted to stop in and say hi. I agreed to let the girls have a slumber party tonight, so I'm off to the store to pick up junk food and movies for them. It's going to be a long night. lol

Anyway, couple things before I go:

Donna, welcome back!!! Sounds like a nice trip. I'd love to see all the medieval looking places. Very cool. And thanks for the info on the thyroid stuff. I think I'm ok now, but with it running in my family so much, I do need to be on the look out for symptoms.


Janelle, what a wonderful surprise!! You've been such a tease on FB. lol


Capri, I am sorry for all the family drama. My half brother used to date a girl who was bi-polar. It was rough. Lots of drama there that I won't even get into, but he ended up in jail because of her too. Also false charges. In fact, after having him arrested, she went and bailed him out. So weird.
Anyway, vent with us anytime.

Oh, and I've been having hot flashes too!!! Sometimes I feel like I am just burning up. I'm only 37 so I thought I was too young for that but maybe not. Ahhhh, the joys of aging.


Cheryl, thanks for updating us on Dawn. Poor thing. It's super sweet what she's doing though.


Well, I guess that's all I can remember for now. I'm off to take Adam to a birthday party, and then hit the store. Talk to y'all later.
