NM ...

I am so sorry for what you are going through ... if you want PM me and I can give you more info or simply be a sympathetic ear ...

My family has unfortunately had way too much experience with smoking and it's aftermath ...

I can honestly say I've seen all sides of the coin -- I won't go into it here ...

I wish you and your family peace in any and all days and the decisions those days bring

It seems cruel to come home to the remnants of Isaac after standing in the Isaac rain at HS last week.

Washers and dryers both took quarters - $2.00 each load. I bring my own quarters because the change machine runs out a lot. I brought Tide pods (suitable for HE machines) with me.

Thank you for sharing this. My own mother was finally able to quit smoking a couple years ago after batteling lung cancer. It was a very difficult time and I begged my husband to quit. He still hasn't been able to. He doesn't smoke as much as my mother did or even as much as he used to, but we still hope he quits soon. I will talk to him about Chantix. He has quit before, but he's always started up again. And I can't understand what triggers it. He says he wants to quit, so maybe Chantix will do the trick.

My husband was a three pack a day smoker for over 50 years and Chantix got him smoke free ... it's a miracle drug!

Hi;
You can add us to the Be Our Guest List! Dec 13-16 YC CL after our GF anniversary stay and Dream cruise - BIG trip and this is the last leg!

I do have a question I hope someone can help me with: I am having knee trouble and will need to minimize my walking. What would the best location to request for closeness to SAB entrance with the construction happening then? Will that be close to the lobby as well as the CL lounge? We will be staying YC CL. Thanks!
I presume the noodles are already spoken for during our dates?

I'm pretty sure our doctor mentioned it to him when we went for our checkups earlier this year. And he did comment again the other day that he wants to quit. So I have hope!

Thank you NM and Teena for your input!

Get close to lobby / elevator. That should take care of it! Hope the knee trouble doesn't get in the way of a great time at the World. Happy planning.

Thanks katesdad; is that anywhere near the lounge too? Where is the lounge located on the 5th floor?

It is a bummer about my knee. I was thrown off my daughters pony several months ago - we have a new pony now -and I tore my acl and have some nerve damage. I was hoping that the doctors could get it fixed by December as it happened last April, but it is not looking positive at the moment. I am hoping that I will be able to withstand all the walking I want to do, but need to plan for the likelyhood, that I will be in some discomfort on our trip. I am sure all the magic will help it fade into the background though! So excited for this trip!

I'll just add that my BIL smoked @ least 2 packs a day for decades, quit several times and started again - until Chantix, which did the trick. He's been smoke free for over 6 years. I've read about possible side effects, but all I noticed was he was grumpier than he used to be for awhile. He reported that he had very vivid dreams. As all former smokers do, he put on weight when he quit, but he's now walking and the weight has pretty much gone. I thought he'd never quit - but Chantix worked for him.

What we did w/ my mom was on those days when she was too tired to hike a lot (such as Epcot days - which is a huge park) she'd rent a scooter @ the front of the park (by the stroller rentals.) I think it was $50 or $60 a day, but she only needed it on a few days. The really convenient thing was that she could check it back in as she left the park, hop a bus or whatever to another park, and pick up a new scooter there as the rental is good for the whole day. She liked it as she didn't have to mess with loading it on and off buses and it allowed her to do more things than she otherwise would have been up for.
