Jimmy...glad that you made it home safe and sound. Hope you're feeling much better.

Bronte...thanks for stopping by on the thread. You have one smart daughter there with great taste in WDW resorts!

And for all the Groupies, I hope you are all on Santa's "nice" list...he's got little spies everywhere you know!


He knows when you've been bad or good.....




....so be good for goodness sake!

Well, we WERE able to get in for lunch at "Be our Guest" on the 11th. The food there is GREAT! I had the ham and cheese sandwhich with fries and Dynaguy had the roast (marinated in coffee according to the server.) They really have this set up well to handle a huge number of customers efficiently. I was surprised how well this worked for a counter service location. We will definitely look forward to our dinner reservation there in March. The restaurant is beautiful.

We got stuck with the monorail being down, too. Had to take a bus to the Contemporary for our California Grill last dinner of our trip. It was great, as always.

When leaving to go to the airport on the 12th, we detoured to Sanaa for lunch since we had plenty of time. It cost an extra hour of car rental but it was worth it! Nothing like squeezing in one last meal at our home resort before heading home.

Now I've been frantically getting ready for my knee surgery tomorrow morning. I gave up on the idea of getting Christmas cards out before Christmas so everyone will have to be patient and hear from my after my surgery. I will try to remember to check in here when I am lucid again, too. Since I've been down this road once before, I know what is ahead of me this time. That is good because I am less afraid this time but bad because I KNOW what is ahead for the next few months. Dynaguy is a great husband though and he is ready to go through it all again with me.

Merry Christmas, everyone! Just in case I don't get back here in time.

Great to see the pictures from the Groupie meet! Sounds like it was a lot of fun.

We returned from our lovely Aulani stay and lovely 70-80 degree Hawaii weather to snow. As the years go by I've decided I like the song White Christmas far more than actually experiencing it. When I get some pictures uploaded I'll share a bit of what we saw but will say that Aulani is a beautiful resort and we'll be back again!!

Inkmahm - good luck with the surgery!!

OK Groupies, we're home now, too. What a great trip! Wonderful to meet up with so many of our cyber friends (and new friends, too: Liz and William) and become better acquainted. Jimmy's done a fabulous job of keeping the thread up to date with the happenings of those in the World with his pictorial diary. Thanks Jimmy!

DDad and I started every day the same: up at 6:15 and out by 7:00 to walk over to Fort Wilderness and back again. We saw deer every day - as few as 8 and as many as 22. We even saw a bob cat - yes, a bob cat! Before returning to our room we'd make a stop at Roaring Fork for oatmeal and grits and take them back with us for breakfast on our balcony. This is the first trip that we have actively kept an accounting of how far we walked. We averaged just under 10 miles per day with our lowest day at 6.25 miles (the day we left) and our highest at over 13 miles! We have these really neat folding walking sticks.....

Highlights certainly were the Groupie meets, the TOWL, candlelight processional, lunch at Be Our Guest and our early morning walks. DDad and I were both successful in reaching Galactic Hero status on Buzz Lightyear: 999999 What a pleasant surprise!

As always, the time goes by far too quickly while on vacation. I have my countdown set: only 61 days until Aulani.

Wishing you a smooth surgery tomorrow Inkmahm! Will hope that all goes well.

WELCOME sechem32! A pleasure to have met you and William. So happy to have you as part of the Dis and more importantly as a part of the Groupies!

Welcome back JT, DiznyDi & DiznyDad! All good things do eventually come to an end but the good news is there will always be another trip to the Lodge just over the horizon!

My trip is almost here! Only 2 more sleeps! Suitcases are 90% packed. Tomorrow I need to wrap up some work stuff in the morning, pack the duffel bag with the food we're bringing, then take the fur babies to the pet hotel. That's the only sad part. Neither has ever been boarded before. I hope they do ok. After that it's try to get some sleep then we're off! I'm still bummed I missed the big groupie meet, but I'm hoping to do a mini meet with Granny! I haven't met Granny before so I hope it works out. I will do my best to post pics. I know JT did a great job posting pictures during his trip but you can never have too many right?! Next time I post I'll be at my happy place (hopefully in "the" room)! Bye for now!

WARNING: This is a whine-fest

So, last Wednesday I noticed this really wet spot on the carpet in front of the bathroom. We blamed the dogs. 3 towels and an overnight fan later, and it is still soaked. Uh oh. We live in a condo built in the 80s, so guess what. Galvinized plumbing underneath the slab foundation.

Good news? HOA needs to fix this problem. Bad news? All of the closets need to be emptied and furniture moved out of the way. The HOA is installing all new copper plumbing in the walls.

I know I should be appreciative that the HOA is covering all of this maintenance, but right now, I'm staring at an un-decorated Christmas tree and it's depressing me. I'm also looking at some of my few decorations that I got to put out and thinking I should just box them up too. I mean, what's the point? Is Christmas seriously only a week away?

Not to mention that our life is in little piles everywhere. What would happen if you had to empty all of your closets? Would you have somewhere to put that stuff? I'll tell you, I don't. It's just in piles. Everywhere. We have to go outside and turn the water back on every time we want to go to the bathroom!

OK. I know I'm whining. I'm done. Sorry. Pity-fest much? I'm pathetic.

I ran out of closet room a long time ago. That is why I had a storage building built so that I could get some control back in my house. I just need the time to get something done!

So have a great pity party, if you need company, I might join you!

We may be in a similar situation soon. We're gutting our master bath for a major overhaul. Move the bed, re-locate the piles, make way for the contractor...and so goes the list.

We nearly always travel to the World in December, so my Christmas decorating has taken a major set-back. I have a small 4 ft. tree that I keep decorated and throw a plastic bag over for storage. It will be coming out today.

We live in the country and have a well for our water. At one point in time, lightening struck our well and hence immediately shut down our water. I remember going out to my kids little swimming pool for buckets of water just so we could flush the toilets. I feel your pain. Be like Dory - just keep swimming!

Thinking of you Julie as you do your last-minute packing and planning. I hope you and Granny are able to meet up! We are returning to the World Oct. 7-12 and hope to see you then.

Just return the favor and allow us to live through you at the World. Have a great trip!!

Kathy
I feel your pain. We had a major issue with our hot water heater, water literally 4" deep in our basement, had to move all the stuff into our upstairs living space, it was a real mess and a major displacement.
I say go to your happy place, be at peace in the Lodge(in your mind anyway). Play some Lodge music, spray some pine scent around the house and deep breathe it all away
