I send you positive vibes and good thoughts . I hope all goes well and I'm thinking of you

Can you buy insurance today?

Thinking of you and sending prayers your way. You're right, nothing you can do...but that doesn't make you worry less about your health! I hope all is clear after the scan.

It was talked about briefly this summer on this thread (here's around the timeframe so check some pages before/after this linked page), but after I learned via PM we sign up to coordinate only one activity each, my offers in the thread to volunteer for that one went to the wayside so someone else could volunteer and be involved.

Goofynewfie posted it on the webpage back during the summer along with various event descriptions we tried to summarize in 2-3 lines:

Each event has info on here that we pulled together last summer, but many events are missing coordinators and binkytell has been trying to contact coordinators listed to make sure they are still onboard.

We were surprised to get twins, but we did find out pretty early, so that made it pretty easy and we were ready for them when they arrived.

My girls don't seem really taken by other twins, except that their closest friends are also twin girls! They do love being twins, however, and don't mind the added attention it sometimes brings. They are also kindhearted kids and will gladly talk with your boys.

For months I rarely checked in on this thread, but now that we're almost there I can't stop checking in
The boys love being twins, too. It really is a cool thing. We found out super early (6 weeks), so after I almost fell off the table in shock, I had plenty of time to wrap my brain around it (plus having two kids doing somersaults in there helped cement the idea haha).

That is so amazing that their BFFs are also twins! Wow. The boys are really shy at first, so they will probably start asking questions around day 13, just in time to say "goodbye" haha.

******************
On another note, I asked them separately if they wanted to do the campout, and they said "no". When I asked why, they both said "because I wanna sleep with you!" Man, I hope they change their minds about that before they turn 18 haha.

Wait, I'm confused. You can only coordinate one activity? What if nobody else wants to do it?

Can we vote on that? Or make a time limit on when someone needs to sign up for it before someone already doing stuff can do it?

Listen, I'll be honest, I won't sign up for doing anything. I'm just not that together. But I love when folks that are good at that stuff, and ENJOY that stuff, take it on. I appreciate it immensely.

I'd love to partake of lanyards, and will happily chip in, and shirts and meet ups. I just suck at trying to get that stuff together.

Oh so sorry. I've been there, lots of tests, etc. this year. I also had a lump in my thyroid, it had some blood in it and was firm so there was some worry but it came back benign, I'll get another test in a couple months.

It's really hard not to worry but you'll be okay. I have prayed and prayed throughout my tough year of illness and I can tell you from experience that God is listening. Say some prayers and then trust that He will heal you.

Also, there are some incredible documentaries on food, such as "Food Matters" and "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead". Take a look, you'll feel so much more empowered that through good nutrition and supplements your body can heal itself. I take great supplements and sometimes I eat really well ( wish I did a better job on the latter ) and I am getting much better.

Can you still take out insurance? Try to, it's worth the peace of mind.

I will say a prayer for you.

I told my husband the night before we found out that I thought we should have two boy names and two girl names "just in case." I just had this weird feeling. Then we found out the next day and my husband almost fell over and said, "She said last night she thought it was twins " It's the only psychic moment of my life

Maybe my girls can convince your boys to try it!

This was shared back in the summer (see this page where I had previously volunteered here) but maybe it has changed and I missed that along the way somewhere. I ended up just going out on a limb and coordinating a group rate for a hotel for Tremont in Galveston and a pre-cruise meetup at the Rooftop Bar that Friday night at 7:00 - both completely unofficial and non-DIS related. Hopefully any remaining activities that need to be coordinated can get volunteers soon, and I think Binkytell has put together a list (she started contacting some to see if they were still onboard).

you can't - so don't feel like you have missed something! You have to upload it to a photo server of some sort. (photobucket, flickr, or any other one) and put a link to it in your post.

I got the dates that Steven posted - you have them right Mandy - with one addition of 5/19. He doesn't have that date - however, I think you have it right. In my experience DCL usually does formal night on the second night of the cruise.

Give Val and Bob a bit - they are around. Sometimes life gets in the way of planning. I figure they will put in an appearance soon as the PIF date is right around the corner. (Literally!!! 2 days, right?)

If they have dropped out of sight completely by the time we hit 200 pages, maybe we should just designate someone to start the next thread and begin the info page as well. (Just a suggestion!)

Sunday 5/19 is correct for the first Formal Night. I called the shoreside concierge to get the information since the original post disappeared from FB.
