I now have a stomach full of nerves.

After bath last night I dressed Claire in her new dress and sent her off to talk to daddy. He told me she asked him if his decision has been made (good girl), and I asked him "what did you tell her". Well he said it all depends on what the Dr tells him on Tuesday. I told him Tuesday is "D" day, meaning the "sale" will be over. He didn't say anything after that. But basically I will know nothing till Tuesday afternoon, and then it all depends what this stupid Dr tells him. This Dr who has ignored him a better part of 5 months now, is NOW controling our vacation. I just know, he'll do something to screw it all up. He'll FINALLY decide to operate or something like that.

I just have a really bad feeling. And even if we can go, I have a feeling Skip will do his "thinking" process more and say lets wait to book. Which means we lose Pop for sure. I keep looking and not much is left open with free dining. All Stars Sports is the only Value left for our dates, and I have no desire to ever stay there. So at this point it will be CBR or CSR, who still have rooms left. Of course the longer we wait, the less likely.
The other option then is to go after he is healed (if he has surgery). So a trip is going to happen (most likely) in the next few months, but it's the when that is killing me and missing out on the Christmas celebrations.

Skip also told me that Claire told him that we are going to a Mickey party and there is good food there. LOL! I told him I told her they have hot chocolate and cookies. I guess thats all she needs.
I know he is now kind of getting excited about it. But that dang hip is just really bothering him. Oh, and his appointment on Tuesday...it's the 1 year anniversary of his hip replacement. A year ago at this time, we thought al lthe pain would be gone soon, and it has gotten worse instead.

Gosh darn it! I wish ya'll didn't have to wait and see what this doctor says Tuesday.

But, at least you know that Skip is more than likely going to say yes to a trip sometime soon. If you had to go with the CBR or the CSR, I think I'd go with CSR. From everything that I've read, the CSR resort is geared more towards adults and conventioners and the castmembers are downright rude. I know that the food court is what made us change our minds on whether or not to stay there. I don't want to stand in a line to wait for table in a food court and I don't want to have to wait on them to refill my drink.

I swear, I should change the title to "these are the Days of our lives". It is such a soap opera right now. Too much drama for me. It really kicked in the nerves today. I get anxiety attacks every so often. I actually have them at Disney, but it's because of the excitement and I cna handle it there. But at home, I hate them. And I haven't had any in a long time, but I think after he said last night that we will wait for the Dr, I realized how we are cutting it right to the wire and it is making me a nervous wreck. LOL! I will live if we don't stay at Pop, but it's what we are used to, and I know we like it.
I am leaning towards CBR. (if we do go and have to change) I have done the reserach on it over that last year, so it is somewhat familiar. Though I like the fact that Coronado has queen beds. But I am nervous about the food court too. It seems like a hassle. Don't you have to tip there too? Unless you get it to go, which 99% of the time, we do at Pop. I always take it to the room or we eat out by the pool.

Tim has stayed at CSR before, so maybe he can chime in on how it all works there. I will be happy with either, I'm sure. Just wish we could go to our comfort zone. LOL!

I love it too. She is growing like a weed. She now has her first lose tooth. She is excited. My other 2 were older before they lost teeth. But my guess is that if we go in Dec, she is going to have a gaping hole in her mouth for all the pictures.

Aww sweetie. I wish I could wave a wand and make Skip feel better. It's must be very frustrating to see him in pain and have no ability to help. You've done so much to try and help, the doctors are just being difficult. Disney or no Disney, I truly hope his pain is relieved soon.

I love the fact that you took Tim's advice and paraded Claire in all her glory for Skip! I will keep my fingers crossed that you get an answer by the deadline.

Tim's advice was good. Skip was shaving in the other bathroom when I dressed her, and she went waltzing in and it was so cute. I couldn't hear much because the door was closed, but I did hear her say she was wearing this dress to eat in the castle.

Hi Jen,

I just pm'ed you! And I agree, sending your sweet little girl all decked out in her Cinderella costume was pure genius! Keeping my fingers crossed that it worked! I'm sure she melted his Disney heart.

I can understand your stomach nerves too. When I was originally campaigning for us to take our 2nd Disney trip, I had my girls asking DH all the time! For some reason it's harder to say no to them than to me!

But now we've got 4 Disney trips under our belts and DH is officially converted. Only took about 3 trips and now he understands that Disney is our #1 vacation spot, period!

I like CSR much more than CBR. When we went I don't remember having to tip anyone. There are two different QS dining areas at CBR. Of course I was also sick with Bronchitis so I didn't eat much but my friends got food the same place I did. But we definitely like the rooms and the pool a lot better at CSR.

I'm not exactly sur how it workd, but I think you usde to have tip tip if you weren't on the dining plan, but now I think you do, if you eat right there.

We didn't have the dining plan. I think there are two places to eat. One you have to tip and the other you don't. We ate at the other one. But it was 2 years ago, so I don't remember exactly how it worked.

I didn;t realize there were 2 places. But I think the Pepper Market is the one you have to tip at. I guess I should probably go look for the CSR thread and brush up on it a bit, just in case.
