Good morning Lisa!

The trees here are absolutely gorgeous! As much as I hate the snow and cold that follows, I LOVE fall in Western New York. The trees all around here are yellow and orange and red!

Now I just need to find the time to take the boys apple picking so I can make some homemade apple butter! YUMMMMM!

You have a great day. I really will work now.
I'm with you too...hate winter. And my DH has thought of blowing the leaves to the neighbors house; he has a tree, but his leaves fall and blow to our house because we are in the cul de sc...DH is very crabby right now. They are actually prediciting rain mixed with snow here tomorrow night. (:
Yes, I should get to work too.

While reading the weather stuff from you "northern" folk , I checked out what it's supposed to be here.

Mid 80s today with TStorms (can see them a ways off on the radar to our NW already), tomorrow about the same, then it gets chilly... Low-Mid 70s this weekend (and dry)

I did look it up at Beth's house, 46 right now, and Snow Showers forecasted for late Friday. Looks like this weekend will be good for another few quips about her moving down here

Hi Lisa,

I was a few pages behind, but I'm all caught up now!!

Great updates!! I love all the pictures at the Poly. The ones taken with each of you in front of the Tiki God turned out great!!

My father is afraid of heights also. I actually didn't realize how much until our trip in August.

a snake!! So glad we didn't see one on our trip....DH and DS are terrified!!!

I the DIS!!! I'm so glad I found it first....sorry about the trouble you're having at Intercot though.

But most importantly,I'm so glad that your mom and BIL are doing better. That's such good news!!!!

We actually get more ice and sleet than snow. I wish it were the snow. I just noticed your pink ribbon. Congratulations survivor. I had a different kind of the C. It was thyroid which is normally an easy fix but I had to have the one in a million that spreads to other parts of the body. I've been clean a year and will get a test in Nov that hopefully turns out well. We just keep hanging in there don't we? I'm am a bid Relay for Life supprorter.

Congratulations. It's been 3 years for me this February (had a scare in August that it had come back, but it was benign). I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for November that it is great news...which I know it will be.

OMG...I am finally caught up!!!!
First- I am glad your Mom & BIL are feeling better. I can't believe the attitude on your niece, though! I don't blame you for hanging up. I mean- you were going through a lot, too, with everyone's ailments, but you weren't snapping at people. Some people can't handle ANY stress.
I LOVE that bread at the Luau, too! I am SO debating whether or not to splurge to stay at the Poly or not in December 2010. I can't decide!
And, well, as far as Intercot...most of the people over there are great. You know I was over there for YEARS until you got me over here with your last UNCENSORED trip report (you can't say pee, you rebel! ). Now- I posted a PTR & TR here...not there. I'm not going back over there because it is just a little too uptight. Maybe you should give your other TR readers over there a little "nudge" in this direction. It worked with me!
Now...I am of to catch up on all of the other TR's I missed out on while sick in WDW & getting older over the weekend!

Rub it in Allan. I'm moving down there. That will teach you.

We always have that fear darn it. I don't know if you read on my TR but my FIL has bone ca that has now spread to his brain. It is such a sad situation and my heart breaks for him and my dear sweet MIL. They are the best people in the world and to top it off his Alzheimers has really kicked in with all the morphine and stuff.

I'm sorry to hear about your FIL; I lost my dad last year and it is so hard watching our parents/inlaws get older. I am off to read your TR now...don't feel like working.

I would be gone too if I weren't writing pay checks. That keeps me here the rest of the week. I've read yours, just never comented. So I will go back and make my 2 cents known.

Lisa,
The luau outfits were very nice - loved them! So glad your BIL is home from the hospital and that your mom is doing better.

On the heights thing I am kind of weird. Mostly I am good but if DS is next to the rail in the mall I want him to hold my hand or if I see the Grand Canyon even on TV it scares me! DH wants to visit - told him he can go alone! So I guess you could say I'm scared of the FALL!

Congrats to all you BIG C survivors!

Great updates! The luau sounds like it was a lot of fun. We've eaten at 'Ohana twice but haven't done the luau...I think I'll schedule that for our next trip (who knows when that might be, though).

I'm also terrified of heights -- the second floor of the Poly scares me silly -- and my husband and girls love to go look over the railing. Yikes!!! I think they do it for my reaction. LOL

We saw a snake when we were at CBR, too. It wasn't too far from us when someone pointed it out to us. I was glad they did so we could jump away!
