Thanks for the welcome!

Weekend plans? I've got a cookout tomorrow night and then shopping on Saturday! I'm only allowing myself to stay at the mall for a little bit. Well, that’s what I keep telling myself. I need to come home and finish cleaning. My life feels like one never-ending project!

Hi ex-neighbor! Yes, living here can be tough. Weekday traffic has been great with kids out of school, people on vacation, and Congress on recess. Weekend traffic is still the nightmare that it's always been.

I can taste the weekend! It's almost here!

So what you are saying is that they should be done by January. Got it.

(Need to factor in the obligatory road construction delays that always seem to happen.)
No...From what he is saying, October is when they should be done with it...but don't be surprised if it will be under constuction again in about 3 or 4 yrs.

Thanks!!! I hate that he is working these weird hours as a retiree (he retired from the PA Dept of Trans and now works as a consultant)...Going in at 5am, coming home at 3pm, then going back in at 8pm and working until 3am. Certainly not your normal 66 yr olds daily routine!!!

After that, home to pack then a good night's sleep before I head to the airport around 6:30a (which is late for me!). Can't wait!
Why must everyone rub my face in the fact I don't get to go back for another couple months.

if and when I get to go, but that is because I've done the work, raised a kid to love disney, and worked somewhere long enough to build up vacation time

Well, if it makes it any better, my kid's been there with his grandparents since Tuesday, so I've been jealous of a seven year old. I plan to meet up with him a few times and have him over to BC to hang out at SAB, but other than that, it's his time with them and my grown-up time.

Yeah, but it depends on the age of the "kid". My son became excellent and making sure dismem98 and I were well looked after. Of course, he was a teenager already and loved hanging out as well as going on rides, but I never threw a guy into the mix back then.

Now that I think about it, maybe a 2 bedroom unit is in order for this vacation. . .lol.

Has anyone ever rented points from DVC members before? I am thinking of doing this. I have a $600 budget for hotel for the meet. Staying October 13th-17th.

I have! In fact, I'm trying to do it again for my November trip, but the pickins are slim right now in terms of availability. It took me a little while to find a good seller though. I've rented from my seller twice, and I will continue to use her until I get my own contract. I've paid between $9 and $12 per point. Where are you in the process?

I went to the post office today.....and they were out of stamps..... and were rude about it..... Excuse me for asking for an item, which is something that you should have. Then, they gave me a wrong form for my passport, and they said that the form " hasn't been used in 5 years" THEN WHY DID YOU GIVE ONE TO ME? Then they said they could not have possibly given it to me. Yes, USPS, I keep 5 year old passport forms on me, just to mess with you.

They also took my ORIGINAL birth certificate, and they mail it to philly. um, what happens if it gets lost, or stolen? Oh, i forgot that not a single piece of mail has every been misplaced.
