7 is a great age for running parents ragged in Disney...Fast pass is one of the most important things.....if it is busy ...run ahead and get the fast passes for where they want to go ..LIKE TOY STORY MANIA...my all time favorite and Soarin'....love that one too..
Breaks during the hot part of the day...and go Swimming...get some of those fans at Walmart...the ones that have water out of them...cheaper then spending fifteen or twenty bucks for them at Disney...

I am anxious for them ...but anxious for me too...ask your PT if he or she would like a postcard from Mickey to his son...I am sending one out when we get to Disney for some person that posted on the Fairy Godmailer list....I can do it for him too...let me know and send me a private message with the address..if they dont mind a PIG sending their son a welcome to Disney card...hahaha

have a good day everyone..

Great suggestions, Pumba! I'll check with my therapist to see if he'd like a Mickey postcard for his son and will PM you if he does

Moo, yes, the dinner was for hubby's birthday. But my real hidden agenda was to get DD and the BF to come along so I could get to know him a little better, heehee. He seems like a nice guy.

Hope you get your pain meds, surely somebody is covering for your Dr.

A couple of tips I thought of that I read all the time is to hit the parks at rrope drop. You can get a lot of things done in a short period before the masses come. Also I hear avoiding parks that have EMH since they are the most crowded. That depends on their tickets and plans though.

Also, they now enforce FP return times, so you have to go within your window; can't just go whenever anymore. But I have read they are accomodating if a ride goes down, etc.

Marita--saw you were in the park last night. As my mom would say it going to storm .....the unthinkable happened. So did you grill the poor guy...Can't even imagine what it would be like when the kids actually bring someone home to meet. All Nicholas girlfriend have only talked to him on the phone or computer. Haven't met one yet.

Moo-- I too hope you can get your pain meds. I don't think I have any advice either. We don't go all commando so we too take breaks and go back to the parks.

We spend the day with my MIL at the hospital. She looked better today then when I was up on Friday. Still haven't problems breathing and swallowing so she is not eating or drinking and that is what landed her in the hospital. I wasnt' sure if I should take the kids or not but they were pretty good with it all. They were more interested in her roomate. The lady was green. Her skin that is, never saw anything like it. At first I thought it was jundice but it wasn't yellow, it was jolly green giant green. We left Hannah's homemade card and flowers. Not sure grandma knew we were there. She was in and out. But I was really taken when Nicholas took her hand and told her to get better soon. Her hand is full of calcuim bumps and she is very frail so I was surprised that he did that. We are always scared of breaking her when we hug and kiss her.

Pumba, wow, you WILL have a whole new house by the time you are done. You should post some pictures.

Nab, I only did some very slight drilling, LOL, I didnt want to get DD upset. Found out he graduated at the height of the recession with a degree in computer animation. Oh dear... Nice guy though.

Nothing much to report here, another forecast week, but it's really a non-event anymore. They removed one requiredment and Port is a lot easier (no DVC).

Pumba-- your house will look beautiful after your floors are in and new windows. I have a photobucket account. This lets you upload photos from your computer easy. Once they are uploaded it will give you codes ( use the IMG one) that you can cut and past to this reply post using that yellow postage stamp icon up top. Just paste it there , I find I have to delete the extra hptt/ to get the picture to show up. Not sure if that makes sense.... Would love to see you pictures.

Sandy--How did your Spring Break go? How was Harry Potter? And that scary hotel you talked about?

Hubby had me out looking at fifth wheel trailers day. There are some nice ones out there but they seem so big to me on the outside and high. I hear that this comes after the tent, tent trailer and travel trailer.....home away from home that is for sure.

The weather has been nice the last few days. Hope it keeps up for the long weekend. Kids are off Friday and Monday for Easter. I bought 36 eggs to dye. We do love egg salad sandwiches.

Nab, egg salad sandwiches sound good, I have some I need to use up (cooked).

I got a bit of a surprise at work today. A person at All-Star is leaving, so I got volunteered to support AS as well as Port, which is fine with me because Im not busy enough. We'll see how that goes.

I'm glad tomorrow is Friday.

PS: I posted a funny story about DH on FB, I laughed so hard.

Marita-- are you working tomorrow. Everything here will be closed for Good Friday. Kids are off for Easter Monday too. I get to sleep in I did see you story on FB too funny.

Tomorrow I will let the kids dye eggs, well at least Hannah, Nicholas has lost interest. She is ok with that more for her to do. Head to my Mom's on Saturday, hubby works all weekend nights so he won't miss us.

Moo-- How is your knee doing?

morning all.
FLoor in the kitchen and dining area is done but ...big big butt...there seems to be either a glob of glue under a foot long one inch wide area that didnt go down or it is a seam in the under floor...I was so upset that I cried...so we cancelled the carpet installation for yesterday as the carpet in two parts were going to go over the inlay...so Monday the supervisor comes and looks at it...I wanted it to look nice for Easter dinner...so some of the stuff that is in two of the bedrooms needs to come back out and PLACED SOMEPLACE...cause granddaughter and her beau are coming today and staying until tomorrow...just a short visit...she has to go back cause Easter is in at the house she is staying at...her beaus family loves Kaitlynn and she has been there all this past year of school...so they could save money ...They even made the very masculine bedroom into a girly girl room for her...they are wonderful people..

Today the house noise is back...happens every day about this time...at eleven thirty we head to the next town over for hubbies carpal tunnel surgery...thank goodness workmans comp will take care of it and pay him for the six weeks out of work...they do the second surgery in two weeks...

Sun is finally coming into the house...so I will take my shower and get ready for the day..
Have a great day my friends and HAPPY EASTER to you all

Nabbie - I was sad to hear about your MIL's health issues. Glad to hear you'll be visiting your Mom for the holiday weekend. Mari was supposed to visit this weekend, but David is having a kidney stone problem, so she is staying home with him and will try to visit next weekend.

Knee healing is continuing to come along. I moved my Dr. appointment up from Tuesday noon to Monday morning since I am (literally) itching to get the staples removed. They should have come out this week, but the surgeon is on vacation.

Pumba, sorry to hear about the flooring installation issues I hate when they do stuff like that. I will take you up on the Mickey postcard offer - will send you the name/address via PM.

Marita, loved your funny story! I think we have all done that at one time or another, LOL!!!

Hi everyone!!

we had a magical time! I'm posting a trip report on the Universal trip report board if you want to see lots of pictures!

The scary hotel was ... scary - it did make us appreciate the Royal Pacific hotel all that much more! (the a/c didnt work, called them around 11pm - they "fixed" it - at 2am or so when it would come on or go off it was so dang loud - but we were in our jammies, it was 2AM!! The bathroom was rusty, gross, peeling paint, just yucky!)

Harry Potter -was ALL THAT and more!! The Forbidden Journey ride was intense! Talk about 3D and motion - amazing! I guess its like Sum of all Fears - your seat (4 people in a seat) would go back - during the womping tree area - it was wild! and my mom, 74 years old, rode it. Once! DD rode it a lot!

My friend who is a CM (reservation center) got us tickets - so we went to Disney 2 days - the second day we went from 10am - 12am I wrote down everything we did - 38 or 39 things!! (that included eating and riding the monorail over to Epcot btw - then back to MK!) My poor mom! I didnt have my shoes, so my foot swelled something fierce - at 10:45pm I found a store open, and bought some good walking shoes!!

I am too fat (I barely fit on FJ - thanks to the workers who pushed the seat down) so when I got back I joined this fancy schmancy Health Club - the club has a lot of people - lots of sizes. They have a few classes with a trainer that I've been to - they are kicking my rear! I just hope I can stick with it!

so now I'm trying to clean house, clean dogs, prepare for a Seder dinner, prepare for an Easter dinner - its overwhelming sometimes!

Meagan and I in Florida's Sanibel Island - it was a cloudy day, so it was awesome, we picked a lot of shells - and in the ocean there were several dolphins we couldnt get pictures of!!


we ate at DTD and had dessert at Goofy's!



It was so beautiful at night!

Hi Sandy, I'm glad you had a good time, yay! Your hotel report reminds me of a hotel we stayed at ages ago near the keys, we called it the Bates Motel. Roaches in the room and holes in paper thin bedspreads. Luckily, at that time I was unaware about how unfreqeuently those are cleaned, yuck.

Hope the excercise works for you. I am pinning my hopes on Thyroid pills, I'll find out Monday.

Oh, for another general dr appts that never end update: So both Dr's have been bugging me to get a mammogram, which i have never done. So we have free mammograms at Disney on certain dates via a mobile service. Great, so I called today to make an appt. She asked me what my prescription said. "diagnostic screening and ultrasound". Oh, she says, we cant do ultrasound there, you will have to come to our other offices.
Great, so there goes another few hours. Is there a fee for that? Yes there is. The last ultrasound I had for thyroid cost me $357!!!
So I think I will ask the doctor I see Monday for the ultrasound for thyroid result if I really NEED the ultrasound for mammogram or can just get away with regular, and also call back and see if there is a charge for the mammogram if I go the the office vs. free if I go to the Disney place 5 minutes away. I am getting REALLY tired of all these Dr. appointments. Every time I think I'm done, they come up with another test for me to do.

PS: Never been anywhere at Universal
