I ordered coffee...need my coffee. My playing partners each took four beers a piece. When they saw my surprised look on my face, one of they said..."Dave did we tell you we came in last place last year?"

THIS!!!

I never realized how a midweek 4th of July translates into MANY days of celebrations and picnics. Add in the heat (we hit 90 here and thats SO not typical of this area) and the beach bars just down the road...my poor liver has been punished severly. I didn't even go out last night and I still don't quite feel right LOL.

Hey gang!

It's been a long while, for which I apologize. Sometimes, life just gets busy and priorities change. But I am looking forward to getting back on the DIS on a more regular basis. I'm glad to see the regular "crew" is still in tact!

In my few month absence, I've taken on some new responsibilities at work, done some traveling (as a result of said new responsbilities), purchased a new house (closing mid-August), and booked my first Disney Vacation Club trip I'm taking my parents and my brother for 10 days at the Wilderness Lodge Villas in May 2013. We're going to be meeting my cousin and his wife + 3 kids, who will be staying in the main lodge.

So that's the abbreviated version How's everyone doing, and what's new with the group?

Congrats Andrew! How exciting to finally have your first DVC trip booked. 10 days at the Wilderness Lodge Villas sounds awesome. But really I'd take 10 days at any Disney resort.

I've been good. Went to Disney World in April (right after Easter) and stayed at the Boardwalk for a week which was AMAZING!!! We had a BW view so that was really cool. Now I'm teaching summer school and looking forward to going to Boston for a couple days later this summer. Sounds like you've been busy lately too!

Just checking in to say that it finally rained in Indiana today, which was very welcome! It cooled things off enough for me to get out for a run tonight, for the first time in a *very* long time. It got me thinking, my November trip just happens to coincide with the Wine and Dine Half....I might have to seriously consider doing that. Right now the race is 82% full and I am a long way from 13.1 miles, but it is an intriguing idea, especially since I wasn't able to do the Princess back in February like I had wanted to....My kids will be there, but since it is a night race I can leave my oldest in charge with some food and electronic baby-sitters in the room with no worries....Any thoughts?

I have no opinion to offer on the race other than, you should totally do it! You have plenty of time to train and get in your qualifying runs.
Also, it sounds like we'll be there at the same time. I'm there 11/9-11/13, what are your dates?

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Mine was low key, trying to stay cool... I did spend the afternoon at the pool without sunscreen you would think that at almost 30 (for the 3rd time... next sunday) I would learn... Guess not.

well hey sunshine!!! we missed you! so awesome about the house..where is the house located? so you are gonna be in WDW in May, what are your dates? I'm down there the first week of May for my birthday (of course staying in the Princess rooms in POR).
how is work going for you...new responsibilities...that equals more money and less time to yourself...

My biggest worry with the race itself (other than the 13.1 miles lol) is that it is a night race and I'd always done morning runs before. But, I went out this evening without issue, so I'm not as concerned. I'll have a little time before I *have* to make a decision, so I can try out evening running some more.

As for our dates, we will be there 11/7-11/13, so we will be there at the same time It's a great time to combine food and wine with christmas decorations, and as a bonus it is 2 weeks before my girls' birthdays

Do the race! Running at night is pretty cool, especially through Disney.

I had a great week, saw Phish twice, toured some caverns, ran an 8K this morning and spent the rest of the day at the beach. The water was great, nice way to cool off. Sure had been hot here.

Have a good week, everyone!
