Since we were downgrading, my parents rented a storage unit. Well, my Mom goes to the storage to pay her bill and what does the lady tell her? "Sorry, we auctioned off all your stuff last week." Did we get a phone call? A letter that our payment was late? Anything? NOPE. A brand new HE washer and dryer. Gone. My grandparent's couches. Gone. My parent's dressers. Gone.



My Mom is in tears trying to find papers, bill statements, anything that shows her the last time she paid them. She remember she went in June to pay and the lady told her she can just pay half and that would be fine. The lady told my Mom today she sent us certified letters/bills. Did she have any copies of them? Nope. My Mom went to the post office and they don't have any letters/bills for us.

It's just material stuff. It can be fixed. I'll buy my parents all the washers and dryers in the world. I guess we're lucky all our personal stuff is here in the garage (my pageant dresses, all my grandmother's stuff, old pictures, etc.) and wasn't in that storage unit.

I'm just so MAD that the lady (or anyone working there) didn't make more of an effort to get a hold of us. Like washers and dryers and couches come from trees.

Thank you for letting me vent.
I'm so sorry Courtney! That stinks!

Possibly. Let me see what the tour times are. I know there is a morning tour, but there might be a later tour too. I cannot remember right now.



Night ladies!!

Hi friends! I am just now home from my sedond 14 hour workday in a row and I have two more to get through before the week is over. But, catching up on the thread, I have been reminded to count my blessings as so many of you are going through much bigger trials and tribulations than I am as I survive the first week of having my students back on campus. Much love to you all!

Hey Jane - it's the most wonderful time of the year!!! School is back in

Off topic - but has anyone ever stayed at the Beack Club Resort at WDW? I am considering booking a vacation there in 2010 and it looks beautiful, easy access to the parks and other resorts, awesome pool...... or is there something better to be had for around the same price?? We have never been, so this may very well be the one and only time we make it there - wanna make it great!!

Hey buddy! Yes, it was the resort I picked for our first and only trip to WDW (earlier this year). They just did a remodel so it was shiny clean. I picked it because I wanted to be close to Epcot.

On about.com there is a quiz you can take to find the best wdw resort for you. I was already thinking of Beach Club or Yacht Club and the quiz picked BC. Yacht Club is nice too but it wasn't remodeled at that time. It is now though, I'm sure.

We had a view of the water and the boardwalk across the way - we loved that. And the movies on the beach, the sounds, it was terrific.

KATIE: I'm so sorry to hear about your car. I think it's time for the universe to stop being mean to Katie. Stop it, I mean it!

Take care all and talk later!
Kelly, I have been reading of all your problems and major sympathy for pain "down there". I had surgery scheduled for fixing an anal fissure that had plagued me to varying degrees for about 9 months...an suddenly it healed itself. Unbelievable the pain...I would not have believed that your a****le could begin to hurt that much! But I really wanted to address the E Coli thing. In vet med, E.Coli is likely our most common pathogen in the bladder since the poo opening--loaded with E.Coli is rather close to the pee opening. So, bacteria ascend, and there you have it...E. Coli infection!

Totally sucks. You guys must be feeling so betrayed. Storage units are notorious for this kind of thing. My DH stored his 66 corvette (don't be picturing some beauty....this one needs WORK!) for a bit and was told by the manager...one day late, the car is MINE!!! She wasn't kidding. He was never late.

I have, I have!! I have stayed there two times and am going again in November. I am that spoiled!! We stayed at the Boardwalk last year and didn't like it as much. The pool is fantastic if you are a pool person. My whole family is water crazed and hit the pool in the rain when it was 55. The walk to EPCOT is to die for. We go there on a whim for a snack. The International gateway is quite close to the French Pastry shop!!

We have always rented a car to go to Walmart and the like. We use it also for AK and MK, but ride the boat to DS or walk and walk to EPCOT.

The only other resort we stayed in was POFQ which was cute and fun, but nothing like the BC....Art the greeter, Lilo and Stitch in the lobby, the movies on the beach, all good.

My knee still sucks...but worked today. See the doctor Friday, need to be able to bend it 90 degrees (which I can) and straighten it by then (not even close).

My Doc told me the wear and tear on my cartilage is already pretty bad and I need to lose 40 lbs. Encouraging, don't you think??

OH well, once I have less pain, I will be back in the pool at least.

Night all!!

If I can do it, so you can, I promise...(and I'm a former nun!).

In all honesty, I did feel kind of guilty. With every free dessert I had the urge to say, "wait, it's not really my birthday".

When our waitress at Kona brought out a very special dessert I did whisper the truth to her, but she said, "It's even better that you could come and celebrate now!" That made the difference and I enjoyed all the wishes/treats all day. It was like I'd been freed from the Catholic Guilt (temporarily anyway).

I'm excited for you and can't wait to hear all about your day!

Theresa, we've stayed there a few times too! The rooms are smaller than the Polynesian, Contemporary or Grand Floridian, but larger than AKL or WL (AKL & WL rooms are the same size as CBR rooms, a moderate).

What is great about the Beach Club is location, location, location! And it has what is essentially it's own water park, if your family enjoys the pool.

If a balcony is important, not all rooms have a full balcony and if view is important (it is to us), some std rooms have a view of a graveled rooftop - glaringly awful. A request for a volley ball court view will take care of that - it is a std view, a very close walk to International Gateway...great room location. Best location we had at BC. Of course, if you book a water view , then it will be lovely (still could have a step out balcony though). A full balcony can also be a request.

It is a great resort - if you are not doing the DDP and/or will rent a car, another great option in the same area for far less $$ is the Swan or Dolphin. These always have discounted rates for anyone in the education field, nurses, military and usually a DIS ad with a discount. Often those rooms can be had for the price of a WDW moderate.

Sorry....TMI. I know nothing about DL, but we've stayed at almost every WDW resort multiple times. If I can answer any questions, will be happy to try.

AmySue, I can't believe you went back to work already. Do take care!

Off topic ~ A sad morning...Senator Ted Kennedy has passed. I know not everyone liked him, and he had some personal issues many years ago, but he worked harder than anyone for the working poor and working class and most especially, those without a voice.. Many Republicans and Democrats alike loved and respected him. RIP, Teddy.

Have a good Wednesday, ladies!

The nights are the worst for some reason although last night was the first night since the surgery that I got at least SOME sleep. Shane has been a trooper and has given me the bed as I DEF need it to spread out with all my pillows and such. I can't get comfortable etc.

Right now my biggest difficulty is just using the restroom. (sorry tmi). Right now it feels like I am passing acid everytime I go and I called my surgeon and he said unfortunately that is normal and said I could try to get some numbing stuff but until it heals there is not much I can do. And I am able to pee but it still hurts really bad too and I JUST got a call back from the ER and they said they found Ecoli of all things in my urine culture and so now they prescribed Levequin for 5 days. Apparently that was the pill they gave me at the ER but now I need it for longer and the pyridium they gave me (stuff that turns your pee orange) isn't even working! So Shane is going to pick those up tonight on his way home and hopefully I will get SOME relief soon.
Take care all and talk later!
Kelly, I hope you are feeling better today. The one and only time we went to WDW, my future SIL had Ecoli. He left with us feeling pretty bad, but thought it was just stomach flu. The first morning there, his temp rose to 105! He spent his first few days at the hospital in Celebration. Poor thing..............he was miserable. So you need to take care, and get everything back in order. Especially the infections!! Hugs and prayers to out to you.

Thanks!! I have been wanting to come to DLR for a looong time. (I hope no one takes offense to this) but Disney is like a way of living to me (create magic- pay it forward- follow your dreams).. and being able to go to DLR is like going to the Holy Land! And you guys would all have to bring tissues for me bc I would just be crying my eyes out the whole trip! haha! But in a good way!
Nothing wrong with this at all!

We are going as a family the week before Thanksgiving. We went during this week last year and it was great!
AND we are in the beginning stages of planning a trip to WDW!!!
This would be for November 2010! Still - as some of you know - it takes alot more planning to do a trip to WDW!
Lucky ducky!!!

Vent all you want Courtney. This whole things sounds extremely fishy, fishy, fishy!! From the sound of some of these ladies, it looks like a practice these storage places do alot. Not good.

You can give your parents and yourself a big hug from all of us here.

I was without a car for 4 days (which seemed like forever). My car got totaled while parked at my sisters house (someone side swiped it at full speed). Since I don't have a job I couldn't get financed for a new car (banks won't touch you with no job). I had to find a car I could pay cash for. So I went from having a car that was less than 2 years old to a used Toyota Camry with with over 150,000. The good thing is I had GAP insurance on the other car so I don't owe anything & I no longer have a car payment. The bad thing is, I'm so afraid the car will break at any minute. It runs fine, but I'm still nervous. But Toyota's are usually reliable.

Besides that I've had a lot of family stress so I'm just trying to stay sane.

Oh, the baby got her first tooth last week. She has one tooth on the top front so I call her snaggle-tooth .
Gee Katie........alot has been going on. Won't insurance help with a new car?

YOUr snaggle-tooth sounds precious!!

:
I've heard over and over again, that it doesn't have to be your actual birthday to get the badges and celebrate. Which makes sense. How many people would like to celebrate at DL, but can not make it on their real date? Not many!!
By the way.....it is nice to have some official WDW vets among us. That goes for Tinker too!!

Good morning girls. Again, thank you for all the kind words and hugs. My Mom called the storage place this morning at 6:30 and left message and is going to call again at 9:00. She’s requesting they fax over a copy of the contract she signed, a payment history printout, and a copy of the letters they sent us (thanks Cheryl!). She’s also going back to the post office (she went yesterday) and is going to see again if any certified letters were left for us. When she went yesterday she talked to the man and he said if the certified letters were sent correctly, the PO would have a record of when they were sent and if they were delivered. My Dad had called the storage place yesterday and requested the tracking numbers for the certified letters they allegedly sent us and my Mom tracked them online and there is no record of those numbers. I’ll keep you girls posted today after my Mom calls the storage at 9.

Thank you so much.

I hope they get your parents situation figured out. I could only imagine how frustrating it is.
Wow how terrible for your friend. Good for her for suing!!

That’s what I told her last night, I was getting frustrated because she didn’t want to deal with it. She’s calling as soon as they open today to demand all of that. Thank you so much Cheryl.

Katie.. i just want to say that you have shown real grace and strength throughout this year with all the hardships and adversities you have faced. I pray next year is kind to you with many blessings.

Amysue... i knew you would be back at work..i knew it! You take good care of You! Have you ever thought of having your own mobile vet clinic? They are really popular in texas.

Courtney... Cheryl gave you some good information.. be proactive ... in regards to reactionary measures.. go look at some of the antique stores for your grandparents couches.. and your parents dresser.. it sounds wrong even typing it.. yet perhaps you might can buy one piece back for sentimental sake. I am sorry this happened to your family

Oohh i am looking forward to doing Animation studio for the first time on this trip... there is so much i haven't ever done. I guess that's why i'm never in a rush to do everything..i like having new things to discover.

Maybe we should make a sign up sheet for the different meals.
I'm going to cove bar this year!

I just saw Maryjo on our October thread..it made me so happy to see her posts. She has such a sweet nature and a really good heart.

Same thing happened to me! No color!! It happened a few months back too and I checked the tech board - a few others experienced the same thing, including a moderator, but no one ever commented on it being resolved. Never know when I'll have color.

Not working today...sigh..oh,well!

Wonderful idea, Dawn. Thank you for thinking of a sign up sheet. I am a bit confused and a little intimidated by all the goings on and not sure how to join in...wouldn't want to be wandering around DL alone.



P.S. Almost forgot -thank you to everyone who is organizing, especially Beth. Would be delighted to help however possible!

Christine, we would never let you wander DL by yourself.
(unless of course that is what you wanted)

And yes, Beth will organize any sign ups. She is really good at keeping us on the ball.

As the time gets closer, we may have two options for most meals. It's really difficult to try and schedule over 30 ladies at one meal, but 10-12 is easy-peasy.

I thought the Storyteller breakfast last year was a huge success, but we did have 4 tables of 8 or something like that, didn't we?
