I have one of those that knows she is adorable too. It's not good

And by the way, Holy Cannoli will be my new saying. Although, it's making me hungry!

I wish that was an option. It's a five day conference, plus we have to have 2 days at the start and end to drive there and back. I know it may be petty, but I told my DH if they go without me, they are not allowed to drive my MV. They will either have to take his dad's truck or his work car (a Kia Rondo). Honestly, if it were the week of the boys Spring Break, I would just take them with us, but it's the week before. Then the boys and I could have done the parks while the DH was in the conference.[/COLOR]
Spring break would have been perfect!

(Her latest hi-jinx has come from taking online "surveys" then ordering products. Before that was a time-share scam followed by a donation scam. My dad is less-than-helpful to say the least as he has never been in charge of the finances so is totally clueless to what goes on or what to look for.) I can say one thing for certain, she's keeping me on my toes. Blah. Sorry for complaining and whining.
Big hugs Miss E! I am not ready for my parents to start getting older. I know its coming but I am in denial.

So I guess this means you can't change to the Poly

We got inside and he said "choose an IPad " so I got a new 16gb wifi iPad 4 I only use if for surfing the net, my did boards and email, so I was fine with the 16GB At least I'm hoping its enough storage for my needs! It was a nice surprise! And I love the speed -- so much faster than my gen 1 iPad (which is now DH's ... Poor guy, always gets the hand me downs, even with cell phones, )

My DS told me yesterday that he wants to do Disney LAST for our DL trip. Because he thinks Disney will be the most fun!, so we are now switching things around and planning To arrive Sunday, Universal Monday, Knotts berry farm Tuesday, WED, Thursday, Friday Disney, then Sat home. I like this new order
What a great bday surprise! Love the DL plans - sounds perfect!

Heya ladies! This was officially The Longest Week Ever™. We all need a couple of days off... oh, wait.


Marie: Oooooo, nice new, shiny birthday toy!

Thanks, Dani. I really appreciate it. (I feel my issues pale in comparison to many folks; just needed a quick vent to the ever-supportive RC-ears. )

Oooooh, well... you know how I feel about the BC. Well, honestly, I think I'd take a lounge chair on the beach just to be close to F&W. I clearly missed something though -- you're not going in August?!
Oh, WAIT a minute... F&W spans the month of October. That's when the maybe-sorta-surprise Hubs' birthday thing will be. My mind is on vacation already.

I thought nurses weren't allowed to get sick? Poor you. Do you at least get a chance to lie down during breaks? When's your next day off, Monday?

Seriously... October? Like maybe toward the end, say? Around the 26th or so sounds like a good idea.

Now, I need to think about getting an oil change. This thread and its not-so-subliminal messages.

DetTigsGal: See, the "oil change" thing worked on you too.

My mil said the difference was they went with them, so instead of the bil & sil just paying for stuff with just his family of 3, they paid for the 5 of them. Of course they would wait until after my sil got in a fight and I'm no longer speaking to them, to take my nephew on a "secret" trip that everyone knew about.

I swear it, this sounds like my in-laws. We should have them genetically tested. There's a match in there somewhere.

Wa-HOOOOO, 4 nights of comp?! Good for you for making it a "You Trip." How was the Palazzo? We've only ever been once quite a long time ago, to the Hard Rock (quite a hike to the strip).

Yay, welcome home! Congratulations on the new fur-baby! Can you text it to one of us and we'll post it for you? I've got a Photobucket account at your disposal.

Caught someone during my preview post...

Lacey: Thank you muchly. Love all of you ladies.

Oh, how wonderful! Linda, could post a photo on FB? Then I could copy it and post it here for you. Easy peasy!

So sad to lose our fur babies....but those puppy kisses definitely help to mend a sad heart. What did David name your new baby?

BIG HUGS to you, MissE!

Actually I named him Samwise or Sam for short because Samwise took such good care of Frodo and I knew our puppy would take good care of David.

I was planning to post some pictures on FB once I manage to get them off my phone!

Well that just my bil and sil for you. Honestly, I can't wait until my nephew is older so I don't have to go through his parents to do stuff for/ with him. I'm not angry at them anymore. I just will not put any energy, whether it be good or bad, toward them. Any person that doesn't appreciate me putting the needs of their family above the needs of my own, doesn't deserve it.

The DH and I truly love Vegas!! It's the perfect place for how we like to be on non-work days. On the weekend we can easily stay up until the sun is coming up and sleep until it's going back down.

One of these days, we'll get to the El Dorado Royale in Mexico since you have to be either at least 18 or 21 to stay there.

ooo, that reminds me....I need to find the paperwork on our minivan to see what the miles were when we bought it. I need it for our taxes.

He's never been on vacation ANYWHERE. I feel bad for him. I get that Disney is expensive, but there's ways to make it more affordable.

I need someone to watch them while I spend 16 hours a day playing blackjack. [/QUOTE]

Dani: I think BC sounds awesome!! I have a friend like yours, they never take their kids anywhere, and even make them split up swimming lessons because they are too expensive. They are not hurting for money, and I try not to judge, but I feel really awkward talking to her about our trips. Vegas sounds great, and I really want DH and I to have a getaway there.

Of course, we ended up spending the money, but it was fun!!
Wookie: You make Vegas sound like so much fun too!! Hmmm...thinking if we save money by going camping with the girls in the summer instead of a cottage, there may be money in the budget for a Vegas weekend for DH and I! Maybe....

It is a total blast!! The shows, the blackjack, heck even just walking the Strip at night. Our favorite show to see there is the Blue Man group. We got 2nd row seats and it was so much fun!! Our last trip we stayed at the Imperial Palace. The DH told them it was our anniversary and they upgraded us to a suite.

Totally agree!! No issue is ever to small for us to lend a supportive ear and a virtual hug.

Another question for the RCer's.

I've been looking at pictures of the AoA suites. My DH even likes the idea of them. Does anyone know if the suites are usually included in the free dining offers?

I know I can book up to 3 rooms but I'm not sure how that works...they aren't staying the exact amount of nights and they arrive at a different time during the day...wouldn't we have to be there when they check in?

They did get 30% off with the spring discount though. Plus the discount on tickets.

Good luck on the taxes!!! And as far as I've seen, the AOA suites have been included in the discounts.

Hi Peeps!!

Been a long week for me... like Pas, I had a migraine Tuesday that was really bad... nausaous, vomitiing, yuck... it left me so drained both Wed and Thurs ... today I'm back to my old self. Sorry I missed all the gabbing!!

First, A belated Happy Birthday to our Sweet Marie!!!

Thank you to everyone commenting on the pix I posted of Melissa and mysefl!! She is as wonderful in person as she appears on the boards. I so enjoy DISmeets and look forward to when I can "meet" all of you in person!!

Pas, my dear friend, hope you feel better soon Getting hit twice in the week with germies is no fair... ... and spring AP rates???

Jen, I may have missed it, but hope your DD is feeling better Enjoyed the feline pix!

Miss, Dealing with our aging parents is difficult, and seeing them deteriorate is just so emotionally draining. big to you!! No issue is ever too small or trivial to share with your RC family.

MM, happy that your friends are coming along and sailing with you at the YC!!

DznyCrzy, sorry about the DVC, and hope you get the $200 refunded..

Dani, you know where to find me the next time Vegas rolls around ...

We do have some news here .... a little background first. July of 2011 we lost our 15 year old Golden Retriever and then in November 2012 my 16 year old Malamute passed away too. We had known for awhile that DH might qualify for a service dog but as long as we had my old slow princess we couldn't bring a puppy into the house. Anyway while I was on vacation DH got the final approval for the service dog. I managed to find an available puppy associated with the training program the VA found for him and ...... he drove 3 1/2 hours and got the puppy. I was greeted at the airport with lots of love and puppy kisses!!! He is the cutest little Labradoodle! If I knew how to post pictures I would but we all know how much trouble I had posting the orange bird kook sent me .... remember all the detailed instructions .... I'm sure none of you want to read thru all of that again!!!
Awesome Linda!! and love the name you picked for him!! Can't wait to see pix!

Janet Funny you should ask....Bob said to me this am that he saw a commercial for Disney so I took that opportunity to talk up the Poly. I showed him pics of the view from the Fiji Longhouse both The Luau Cove side and the Marina side, we discussed 3rd floor vs 1st floor patio, doing the Spirit of Aloha Show and watching the Fireworks from the beach. We also talked about maybe going early November instead of Oct. The Poly is a GO!

That is the best news I have had all week. I swear I could buy your both a huge slice of cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory!! I didn't want to get the DH's hopes up, but I showed him the suites anyway. He agreed that the LM was a little on the girly side. We both like the Nemo rooms since they are the closest to the laundry (or at least where I assume the laundry is based on Google Earth and compairing AoA to the PC) and the pool. He loved the size of the bathroom in the bedroom and thought the boys would love the shower curtain with the sharks on it we kept coming across in pictures. Plus he loves the boys being in a separate room than us. There is the added bonus of the boys being able to sleep in their own bed. They are getting to that age where they might rather do that if it's an option.

oh, you have no idea. When Joey was about 2 months old, my dad's mom passed away. Since Joey had been a preemie and her funeral was in January, myself, the DH and Joey didn't go to the graveside. Everyone else in my family (mom, brother, and sister) got back, but I couldn't find my dad at the family lunch at the church. I finally got to my mom and she said when they got to the graveside my dad saw the newly installed headstone for one of his aunts. She had passed and they didn't tell him about it because they didn't think he needed to know. I could go on and on about them, but that's way in the past.
