Yes, you definitely know the feeling, All the previous weeks, months and even years of waiting, all the times real life dropped an anvil on your head, have all been worth it for this feeling.
Thank you Eliza! - I can honestly say that by the time I finished reading I had a lump in my throat and was misty eyed. Your literary skills are not limited to the descriptive funny family stories - you truly waxed poetic with this one! I envisioned coming around the curve on Timberline, hearing the "Welcome Home" at the gate...... (Love your changing tags!)

Anyway, I'm here and might drop by from time to time. . .and I do so love the pics and WL tunes. . .
Welcome!!!!! Sounds like you will fit right in!

Enjoy your week-end Groupies.
So glad that you are able to use my suggestion!!!! I hope you have a great time. Congrats!!!

Saw Toy Story 3 today. DD and I cried! It was so good. I highly recommend it.

Many thanks Eliza, Muush, and Stopher for being the keeper of the lists.

WELCOME to our new Groupies. This is a wonderful bunch of folks that will make you feel right at home.

Sorry to hear you're under the weather JT. No fun, no fun. Hope you're back to your old self soon.

Muush, DDad's birthday is May 7. Not quite sure how 3 got in there.

Can I add your name and your mom to the front page that will be for us to keep track of needs for Pixie dust (in other words, prayer, don't tell anyone I said that!)
Yes, please. She loves prayers, I mean pixie dust! When you had mentioned adding that, I felt that many of us would take advantage of it.

Thank you so much. They had too good of a price per point to pass up and thank heaven my DH agreed.

She felt pretty good all this week. After the bad week last week, she said it is a little scary wondering what might happen next week. But we just take it one day at a time.

Thanks for all the well wishes, folks

Stuff like this reminds me why I hang out here. Lord knows not cause I like being sick, but when life throws us curve balls, we have a place to rest, and this is one of the places in my life. I much prefer fastballs, but not so fast that I dont have a chance to swing and get a hit every so often. OK, enough with the Bball stuff, just spending a lot of time watching TV the last few days

Dr. called and indicated ultrasound showed possible dyphroticulosis(SP). I looked it up, found out it can come with age(Im 45), genetics, my mom has had it several times, or a number of other things. Also found out not as common for people to experience the pain or even symptoms at all as I did. Leave it to me

Anyway, hoping to get back to work for a few hrs today. I am going to take it slow and see how it goes.

Groupies - I just wanted to say have a wonderful week. I am getting ready to depart early in the morning tomorrow for a week of adventure, a week of fun, a week of excitement - a week deep in the woods with 77 kids and about 30 other adults as we head off to.....Summer Camp! Woo hoo. I love my Disney trips, but there's nothing quite like hanging out with a bunch of Boy Scouts and Scouters.

With that said - IF YOU HAVE ANY TRIPS YOU"D LIKE ADDED TO THE LIST... please, please, please - just send me a PM. I'll get around to it after I return next week.

I hope you all have a great week. I'll be thinking of you (and the lodge) as I sleep in my tent each night, watching the deer in the morning move through the forest, and when I go boating on the lake. (If only I could see that wonderful green roof from my boat peeking out above the treeline... ) I'll talk to you all in a week.

SSR for his 60th birthday (Tgiving week)
OKW or AKL for Valentines Day--our 20th wedding anniversary
BWV for my 50th (September)

But I have my calendar ticklers set up for the day after Christmas this year to book sometime in late November/December 2011 for our first stay home.

Im a Florida native--first trip to WDW was probably in 1975 or so but after I left the state in 1979 didn't come back for 10-15 years.

Hope you're feeling better soon JT!

DiznyDi & Dad - 6 more days how exciting! When do you leave & what island is the wedding on?

So we officially closed on our little VWL add-on yesterday! Just waiting for the points to show up in our account. Hoping with a little pixie/moose dust I might be able to snag a 1 BR for the last 3-4 of our trip in Oct. at the Lodge. A girl can dream right?

And I am officially on summer vacation! The boys still have to go for 1 more day though.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Oh my JT. I am a medical person and have never heard of that one! I hope you feel better and that it never returns. Do you want to be on that first page pixie dust list?

HL! Congrats on the add on!!!

DiznyDuo I hope pictures will flow aplenty of that beautiful wedding!!

Stopher, have a great time with those kiddos!

Here's the wedding details:
Wedding is on the island of Oahu. It will be a Sunday morning (June 27) garden ceremony at Hickam Air Force Base with a champagne brunch following at the Officers Club. Our son is in the Army, his future wife works in the Child Development Center at Hickam. The last of the mints are safely packed for travel in my carry-on. So as much as DDad likes to say I bought too many, we have certainly put the extras to good use. Groupies enjoyed the green packaged ones in December and the royal blue ones are headed to Hawaii.

We're off to a wedding today, and then the real countdown begins.

I don't know how much time we'll have, but I'll try to keep up with the thread on my phone. We're not taking a computer with us.

Hope all Groupies stay well during our hiatus.

"We'll be back"!

Have a fun time with the kids! Bob was an Eagle Scout w/golden palm - and to this day he maintains some of his greatest experiences were with the Scouts - most of all his trip to Philmont. Be safe - take lots of bug spray!

Never heard of that JT. I hope it's something that you can recover from quickly and you feel better soon and can get back into the swing of things.

I knew I spelled it wrong

Its diverticulosis. Has something to do with your colon.I just know from reading the symptons and cures and all, I need to add some fiber to my diet.
Tammy and I went and cleaned a unit we had been remodeling at a local retirement community here in town. After about 3 hrs, I was whooped! Glad tomorrow is Sun.
