Oh Kat4, I am so sorry that your BIL is having to start chemo again. I hope everything will be all right.

DLI, so glad about no infection for your uncle. I hope he and your aunt both continue to improve once all procedures are done.

HD having a meltdown??? Not our HD!! Interesting info about VWL and refurb.
I hate change....but maybe they will do something with that couch.....

To our groupies in the North East, all the best to you with the upcoming storm. May it fizzle, big time!

I believe that was a complaint from the get go - the furniture is uncomfortable and it's really taking a bad beating. Some of that is from the big windows and the unrelenting sun - but IMHO it's that the stuff was gotten on the "cheap" - looked good initially but not good for the hard wear and tear of time share. It was a nice place to spend the first 4 days of the trip - esp with going to MNSSHP and being able to walk back to the room - as opposed to me having a meltdown on the dock waiting for a boat to get back to the Lodge (which has happened!)

We found out from one of the housekeeping supervisors at the Lodge that all the Villas rooms are going to be completely remodeled in 2014 - they did the hotel rooms this past year. She said that they are going to try and make it so that (somehow) they'll be able to sleep 5 in a 1 bedroom - maybe reconfigure some of the rooms, put down hardwoods throughout the rooms, etc. We'll see how that works out.
This is fantastic news about the refurb at VWL! I had been wondering when that would happen. From what I've read, the refurb over on the hotel side is beautiful.

Kat4 & DLI: Thanks for the concerns to me and know that you and yours are in my thoughts also.
As are all groupies that are also going through stressful times

I did go to the chiropractor yesterday and she did new x-rays and really put me through all the ropes before she did any adjusting. She had me finally to a place where when I went in for a maintenance checkup, I did not hurt after an adjustment.
When she was done yesterday, I hurt all over. She said I was totally out of whack!!!
She is going to see me 2 times a week for the next couple of weeks and then will probably cut back to once a week and hopefully get me back to where I was before the accident.

The woman that hit me, her insurance company called me yesterday and so I have been talking to both agencies. The police report left no doubt that she was totally at fault, so they said they will take care of everything.
My adjuster called me this morning and confirmed that the Monte Carlo is a total loss. Even though I was expecting that answer, it just makes the whole thing seem so final.

Sure seems like there are just too many groupies going through hard stuff right now. Sure hope you can get back to normal quickly. Glad her insurance company will take care of things for you.

Need some advice. I was thinking of getting my daughter into yoga to hopefully help out with her stress and migraines. This is something I am not at all familiar with. I can't really afford anything that is too much but I really want to do what I can to help her. Any advice?

Hope that you are feeling better soon - and all the insurance stuff is settled with no hassle to you!

There are a lot of Groupies out there struggling with life in general - whether it be health, family, job,woes from Sandy - whatever. Even having been absent from the thread for many months - I still see the compassion and support for each other on almost every page. It is such a "safe place" to be able look for support - or even a kind word of hope. We have missed being here.

Earlier this year - while going through some of these times - we saw the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. A line from this movie has become my mantra for life in general (and I find needing to repeat often) and I just wanted to share as it seems apropo: "Everything will be alright in the end. So if it's not alright, it is not yet the end."

Thanks to all for being a good Lodge loving support group!

I love that line - can I borrow it; no can I steal it and use it like you do? Yes, judging from some of life's woes on this thread, it certainly can not be the end. Another line I have come to love over the years is "It may be Friday, but Sunday is a commin'!" Yep - and we are almost there.

Happy Birthday Mary J!!!! Hope your day has been especially magical.

My prayer right here right now is that we, each and everyone of us on this thread, will have a very BLESSED and JOYOUS weekend. I know it will be harder for some than others. But my prayer stands - and is rooted on solid ground.

Close your eyes and imagine you are at the lodge sitting in one of the rockers. And there it is. Did you hear it? God loves you!!!

Gotta go, God Bless!

Happy Birthday MaryJ!
Sorry I missed lunch - I was with a friend celebrating a birthday! Hope your day has been a happy one.

So sorry Kathy about your accident. I hope the chiropractor is able to give you relief and get you ship shape in short order. Looking for a new car can be both fun and frustrating. I hope you find what you're looking for. Personally I love my Ford Escape.

Disney loving Iowan - I don't do yoga so can't help there. These weary old bones just would not co-operate to do those movements. DDad and I have been walking though and find it a great way to de-stress from the days activities. We're very rural, so we walk 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 miles at a time and enjoy the scenery, enjoy each others company, and discuss the high - and sometimes low - points of our day. This may not be as refreshing in the city with lots of noise. Maybe your local 'Y' has some classes?

Happydinks - love your mantra. I think we also will be using that from time to time. Thanks for sharing.

Ohio is to be beautiful this week-end with temperatures hoping to get into the mid 70's. Wishing all Groupies a safe and happy holiday week-end. And for any of our Veterans, my sincere thanks for your service to our country and for the sacrifices you made on my behalf. Thank you!

Would any of our Veteran Groupies care to share? I'd love to here where and when you served and in which branch of the armed forces.

I have tried to get her to go for walks. I try to go every day and usually do about 5 miles. It does so much good. We even have a nice trail behind our house. I talked to my brother and he said they pay $52 a month per person for their Y membership. Unfortunately that is a bit steep for us at this time. I have been doing some research but haven't found anything yet. Oh and by the way I was thinking of doing the class with her but I don't know if I'll be able to! I think I'd have to see a chiropractor afterward!
