Stopher, if I can do it especially with all the prayers the groupies gave me, I feel confident in you also. It was really hard, but I focused on my brother and did not really notice how many people were in the room (and there was a lot).
Good luck and have a safe trip.

Speaking of the service, I have been asked to be one of the speakers, plus a scripture reader, plus a driver to pick-up (and later take home again) two of the oldest relatives. Saturday will be a LONG, full day. I'm not a huge fan of public speaking, tending to get nervous and voice wavering, etc as a result of my innate introversion (yes Muush, I really am quite introverted and shy)... so pray for me please. Even though a lot of the people expected are of course family members, it doesn't matter. I tend to have issues with public speaking. My uncle tells me they are expecting close to 100 people. Family members from at least 10 states are heading in for the gathering.

I fly at 0'dark 30 in the am tomorrow, and then return home on Tuesday. I will be going to Disneyland on Monday, staying at the DL Hotel. (Couldn't get a room at my beloved Grand Californian... but that's okay, I want to see the renovations at the DLH closely too). Can't wait for that visit. I'll be spending time with my FIL as well, and get to see first-hand how he's doing. And I get to have lunch with friends on Thursday, as well as dinner with a different friend, plus a gathering of friends Sunday afternoon/evening. So it's definitely going to be a full "bang for your buck" kind of trip.

Have a great day Groupies! I'll check back in again soon.
I find that very hard to believe (introverted? Stopher???) but I do believe you. I hope that the words flow from you, and that the service is a blessing to all.

Stop her you will be great...speak from your heart!

And speaking of the pool, when we were there the very beginning of this very July...there were no ducks in the pool! What is with that!?

Meanwhile...very excited..a friend called and asked if I would "tour guide" for them! I was at first reluctant...but they convinced me to go along! We will all be staying at SSR...never stayed there. I'll be there for 5 nights! My guide and I have talked many times about how much fun it would be to see DVC as a possible tour setter upper! Soooo, she is setting me up to shadow someone when I'm down! I'm hoping the state will soon offer early retirement for teachers in the near future!

Anyway...will be heading back to the world August 10-15!

Hi Groupies:

lisa0711 ~ Happy Belated Birthday! Hope you had an enjoyable day!

jimmytammy ~ Many years ago... DH/I stayed at a timeshare in Boone and visited Grandfather Mtn. It was during the winter and the area was beautiful! I hope to go back in the future and explore the area more. How's Stan doing?

eliza61 ~ Pictures... NP!








Weather wise... it's been brutal here as well in central NJ. Today was comfortable and less humid. The past few days our heat index reached 100 and we were in the mid 90's. I don't mind the heat but the humidity gets to me.

stopher1 ~ Wishing you a safe trip to CA and good luck with your speech. Like you, I have issues talking in front of people. Having "all eyes on me" scares the daylights out of me. If I'm sitting down with a small group of people I'm fine. Focus on the memories that you had with your grandmother, the good times you shared with her, family gatherings, holidays, etc. I'll be thinking of you and your family.

stopher1/Dizny Dad/Granny/KAT4Disney ~ Great pictures and the ducks are so cute!!!

blossomz ~ DH/I stayed at SSR in May for two weeks so if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask here (if others don't mind) or via. PM. I'll be glad to help you out! If you need an assistant... I'll go... hmmm... not sure how DH would feel about that! LOL

Hello to everyone else!

Stopher
You will do fine. I was very much an introvert, shy, didnt like getting in front of people for any reason. I know, like you, its hard to believe I was that way. But I sorta forced myself by Gods grace to step up and do something out of character. We had an adult sunday school class teaching position open, and I felt God pushing me to take it. Mind you, I had never done something like this before, let alone having to teach from Revelation

Point is I did it, with Gods help. I prayed about it, not wanting to mess up cause here I was teaching His word. If it feels natural, share your faith, share your memories, God will speak through you if He has something He wants heard. Lean on Him, He will see you through. And He may just be preparing you for something down the road.

I will be praying for you, but you will do fine

Stan the Man update

Just off the phone with Stan. He sounded good. He finished treatments 2 days ago, started Iprogen shots(not sure if Im saying or spelling this right)but as before its to help him stay strong while the treatments do there thing. Nurse told him to expect severe joint pain because of meds, but so far, no pain after 3 shots He says his #s are looking good, good #s going up, bad #s going down. He feels there is good possibility he will go home by Sat.

Hi there Groupies!

You are such a warm, knowledgeable bunch that I thought one or two among you (or perhaps more) might be interested in applying for the 2012 Walt Disney World Moms Panel. In case you missed it, here is the announcement that ran recently on the Disney Parks blog:

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...ie-dust-level/

And, in case you were curious, I'm the second one on the left in blue.

If you have even the slightest inclination to apply, go for it! Without hesitation I can say it has been one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life. It is a priceless opportunity to learn something new, stretch your personal boundaries, and best of all, help others make the most of their Disney vacations.

S'Mores cupcakes

Saw these on the Disney blog this morning. I spotted them at Roaring Fork last May too but was not hungry at the time. Sigh. Has anyone ever had one? Are they as yummy as they look?

http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2011/0...derness-lodge/

And, did you know that Roaring Fork started serving Mickey waffles this spring? Very excited to make this discovery.

I'm not a big cake fan (which is so weird considering my sweet tooth! ) but I might have to try that cupcake! And Mickey waffles too?!?!? Time for a trip!

That cake looks good. I could, however, go right now for a Mickey Premium Bar.

Congress Park, Downtown Disney view...that's what I'd request. We liked this resort way more than we anticipated we would when we stayed there two summers ago. Have fun Blossomz!

Jimmy, you are not too far off they are nuprogen shots. Mom had to have a lot of them during her chemo days.
