Thanks for the info, AKASleepingBeauty and SAHDad!

It was just a short 3 mi run today so I wore a long sleeve tech shirt and running capris and was fine. I probably could have gotten away with shorts, but it started drizzling half way through my run, so I'm kind of glad I had the longer pants on! One thing I forgot - gloves. That's a mistake I won't make again! I'm actually liking the cooler running weather. I was almost a minute faster than normal today!

ShinySparklyBubbles - I know, the temperature drop is crazy! It was literally 85 degrees two days ago and now it's about 30. We even had a bit of snow on the grass and trees when we woke up yesterday morning! But, as is typical with Colorado weather, it's supposed to warm up into the mid-70s next week

I currently have no home phone or internet service and my cell phone is barely getting a tiny bit of a signal here and there. Needless to say our family is rediscovering what life was like in the good old days!!!! LOL :D I don't know who is more in shock, the kids without their Xbox or me without my computer. Our local news reported last night it will be 3-5 days before they can restore services to everyone affected. {{Yikes!}} Hopefully someone here at the DIS can send me smoke signals, note by carrier pigeon, or message by pony express if there is news about the moms panel R2!!!
..... Now back to churning butter and candle making ......
You are hilarious! Hope u get your services soon!

If today is not it, I will be sad, all this waiting! We are headed to a friends campground today, for a Halloween celebration, but I will be checking email constantly! Good luck there are a lot of great people out there who deserve this! It's really weird how Disney fanatics are all usually nice people!

"Applicants who are selected for the next round in the application process will be contacted via email by a representative from Walt Disney World® Resort. Due to the high number of submissions, we will be unable to contact applicants not chosen to advance to the next round."
It has said the same thing each year but I have always received a "thank you but no thank you" type of e-mail (Not a fan of calling it a reject e-mail)!

I got exciting, non Disney related news! My mom is coming home from FL to visit for a week! Her and my dad split their time between NJ and FL and she's been in FL for a while and I've been missing her (and so has my son!) super excited for her visit! She will be here Monday!

Sorry I phrased it that way. I wasn't trying to say it negatively. "Thank you, but no thank you" is a better description. I really don't take the "no" email personally (well, I might take it personally for about 30 seconds).

Wow, this time around the waiting is killing me :-(. I am out and about today and have been jumping from email, to FB, to The DIS and then back again. They need to put us out of our misery :-(

Hmm, I guess today is not the day, huh? It's 5pm on the East Coast now, so probably not very likely to come in today. Bummer. I was hoping I would be able to stop acting like a crazy person

Going to be celebrating my mom's bday tonight, so signing off for the day. Hope you all have a great night and sending pixie dust out again for another day of waiting!

Last year, Round 3 emails were sent out at 10:18PM. So, I don't think we can rule anything out!
