Airbags deployed … my son has minor bruises, and scraps from the seat belt and his head hitting the window ….I found out when I picked him up at 11:00 from his friend's house …. He said he wanted to tell me in person so he could see I was okay and not freak out ….

Both cars are probably totaled but 4 people are alive …. Someone was watching over them all.

PLEASE be extra vigilant if you are traveling this holiday weekend ....it only takes a split second to something to happen to change your life forever. We were lucky this time.

Oh Janet My heart sank when I just saw your post and the first few words....Thank God your DS and his friends are ok, cars can be replaced.

Hi RCers, Happy Friday!

MM, I keep meaning to thank you for your recommend of Sci Fi Theatre. Very helpful!

Sjs314, Whatever resort you settle on, I hope you have a lovely vacation! (And it’s just the two of us, too. But one of us has been known to snore, and it’s not me. )

Melissa, Missoutandabout, and Padawans,
YC/BC seems to have really worked to give options while the changes and refurbs are taking place. Missout, I think it was a great idea to send a letter to the manager. Surely they will figure out something other than filling SAB with non-Disney hotel guests. That just doesn’t make any sense to me, and I hope it doesn’t make sense to Disney management, either.

GG, Glad you're home and dd is settled!

Marie, Your days are going to fly by, I think. Your dh has a busy Sept planned with a trip across the pond. We lived in England (Suffolk) for a few years, and really enjoyed it.

Jeanette, Are you able to keep your ankle up? Take good care of yourself.


And the latest news…I got a text from ds yesterday. it said:

“Just making sure, you want to go by nana for your second grandchild, right?”

Of course, I called him right away. He and ddil are very happy. We are thrilled for them! My parents passed young, so for me to be here, at 53, enjoying life with dh and our grown kids is a blessing to me. I don’t take it for granted. It’s great to be a nana.

Jeanette hope you are feeling better today. Rest!!! Let the girls wait on their mama .... it's good for them and good for you. Surprising how happy it makes kiddos feel when they are able to help.

Ginny congrats on the upcoming grandchild! Such exciting news!!!

I just wanted to say I am finally all caught up again and sending a big to anyone I missed.

Jeanette rest up today!

MM I think staying put at the Poly is a good choice

Ginny CONGRATS!!!! That is very exciting news

Candace From what I can tell and I haven’t been on the BC&YC boards religiously, so take it with a grain of salt. The CL was moved to the presidential suite at BC so that the carpets could be replaced and possibly some other refurbs. The gym was also closed about the same time and some equipment moved to the solarium. From what I can tell these were both unexpected refurbs. As for SAB, it seems the Dolphin is having major pool issues and there was one family that was able to get wristbands for SAB, and it seems like this may be what the Dolphin is going to do while the pool is down.

HI gang!

I've been away for a few months - not from The DIS, just from the RC-ers! But now I find myself already having changed my October ressie once (from WL to POR) and I'm playing around with my Jan trip. Sooooo I figured why not pop back into the place where everybody knows your name...oh wait, wrong show! A place where everybody else is as whack-a-doodle as you & can't make up their minds!

Hey Linda, Candace, Dani & the rest!

Ginny~ Congrats on the new grandchild!!!!

Janet~ So glad your DS was not hurt.

That stinks about BC, so many things going on at once! I did hear about the Dolphin people getting to use the pool. I for one do not think that is right at all....simply for the fact that they aren't even a Disney resort.

Welcome (back) Tara!!

GG, Janet, Candace, and Melissa, Thanks for the very sweet good wishes! I am going to have fun sending little happy care packages now and then to ddil through her pregnancy.

Hi Tara PA

Now it's time for me to skedaddle, gotta get some errands done!

Hey Linda, Candace, Dani & the rest!
What? You changed from WL to POR? So I guess no meet in the rocking chairs??? Are your dates still the same??? Maybe a quick meet for quick drink and a little Yehaa Bob???

Hello everyone! Just a quick message...

Janet: Ooooof! Has your heart stopped palpitating yet? It was good of him to wait for you to be face-to-face for that sorta news. I'm so, so happy he and everyone else are okay. You need a frosty adult beverage and a place to put your feet up... (right next to Jeanette and her wonky ankle!).

Jeanette: and YOU need a drink ... and I hope you already have your feet (foot) up. Sorry it's hurting today.

Ginny: Congratulations!

-----------------------------------------

I'm off to make my clothes spreadsheet... complete with AM/PM. Of course, this will help me plan how many Ziplocs I'll need for my packing cubes. (Please don't call the men in white coats on me.)
