In the meantime - sending loads of ISPD (Industrial Strength Pixie Dust) for quick healing...and little pain.





I'd be happy to fill in as MIL.

Sooo....here I sit, reading the DIS, catching up, enjoying Christmas Music...when on comes "When You Wish Upon A Star"...and here come the tears. It always gets me misty-eyed, but today it was like a faucet broke. What is it about Disney that makes us smile and weep?
Happy belated Birthday!!!!!

Oh Mama!! Please get to the Dr. tomorrow...

BTW another piece of evidence we are related

It came down to a moderate or what we have now. AKL looks like an amazing resort and I KNOW we will spend about 5 minutes on the balcony during our whole trip, so for us, we will save the $600 it would cost to get savannah view, and perhaps now attend SWW!!!!
The DH and I usually spend a good amount of time on it, if we have a room with a balcony. We loved it when we stayed at the WL. We had a woods view room on the side with the otter pond. We couldn't see the MK, but we could see the fireworks popping through the trees. Every night as the DS fell asleep, we would sit on the balcony, drinking coffee, talking about the next day. It was a really great way for us to wind down from the day and helped me be able to sleep easier. My problem is, there are just so many places that I want to stay, and I would love to stay at the WL again. I think I'll just keep it like it is, until discounts come out. Then I'm sure we'll have to change it.

The Poly is one of the resorts my DH told me he was interested in staying in when we were talking about where to book. He surprised me with wanting to stay at the GF. After staying at the Pop Century on this last trip, I would really like to stay at a Deluxe this time.

I hope you go ahead and have it checked out. You could do more damage to it by not having it checked out. A friend on mine injured her foot several weeks ago, but decided to not have it looked at. After several weeks of it not getting better, she finally went to the doctor. He told her, if she had come in when she first injured it, it wouldn't be as bad as it is now. She may have to have surgery on it.

Happy Sunday to you as well!!

Thank you. It did turn out pretty good. Like I said, when I'm done with the few projects I have, if anyone wants one, all you have to do is ship me the yarn. Otherwise, you are dooming me to be the crazy scarf lady and I will have like 100 scarves that I knitted for myself. Although I do plan to make myself several one color scarves of lots of different colors.

That song does me the same way. Another Disney song that gets me every time is the Transformation song from the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack. I still cry at that part of the movie.

I don't know if y'all have one already, but has anyone thought of (or made) a RC FB page? I know they have them for DIS'ers going to WDW in the different months. A RC FB group might be fun.

Well, I'm off to get school work done. I have to turn in the outline for my informative speech by 11:59 PM tonight. I'm going easy with this one and doing "How to Book a Disney World Vacation". My last mini-Power Point was about recommending to buy Disney stock based on their recent purchase of Lucasfilms and it got a 100, so I think I'll stick with Disney based presentations.

We do have an RC FB page, but it tends to be VERY quiet. If anyone would like to join us, just let LUV know - she started the group.

We'd love for more RCers to join us!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/2606...okmark_t=group

P.S. Candace - know your AKL stay is during a busy weekend, but since AKL is not close to HS, and if AKL is not full, there is a decent chance they might upgrade you to a Savannah view. It happened to us in August on our first stay at AKL - it was brand new, my friend booked a std view with a FL resident discount - at check-in we were upgraded to an Arusha Savannah view (at time we had no idea how bad the std views could be since the resort was new). Not being a fan of zoos I was hesitant to accept the upgrade, but the CM convinced us...all I can say is I had to drag myself off the balcony! BUT I would book a pool view in a heartbeat to save money.... and make two requests: "nice view", "third floor". Fingers crossed for you... some of the pool views are really nice and from some rooms can see a bit of one of the Savannah's.

( Today I filled out an application to adopt this little one! http://malteserescue.homestead.com/A...cuePeanut.html )

What a precious little thing, that puppy looks like it could use a loving home.

Thanks for the offer to be my surrogate MIL.....yes please!!

Well....our AKL stay is actually for our April trip, which is projected to be a slower time I certainly would not refuse an upgrade if given, but won't count on it.

For SWW, we have not decided...but are thinking All Star Movies....or YC, you know depending on financials....

Grumpy Grandma, oh no! Hope you are a little less sore today. Listen to everyone's advice, go to the doctor...you have a trip on the horizon and need to be in tiptop shape! And, yes, where is the smiley on crutches???

miss, so glad the turkey turned out well. Now then, one holiday down, onto the next!

jenny, so glad to hear you ordered the AG dolls. My girls, now 26 and 29 both got them when they were younger. It's actually when they first came out, they both ended with 2 of them and some furniture. It's all packed away in the basement for when they have girls

minnie & nana, what a cute little dog, hope he becomes part of your family!

I am woefully behind and have a busy couple of days with doctors coming up. Could people refresh my memory on dates for their trips so I can update the RC Trip list on page one?!

to everyone I have missed!

Good evening ladies. Well DS woke up at 4am with an upset tummy and a sneezing attack that wouldn’t quit. After getting him some meds and laid in his room for a couple of hours I finally went back to sleep. I dozed off and on but didn’t actually get and out of bed til 10:15am, EEK!!! DD came in and out and just kept snuggling up with DH and I while the boys slept. DS19 of course sleeps all day, but DS9 is usually up and going by 8-8:30am on the weekends, but not today, he slept til noon so I know he is fighting something. I am worried because he got sick and spiked a fever the week before his endoscopy in August and we had to reschedule and we still ended up in the ER after the procedure. I am hoping we don’t have a repeat next week. We were supposed to go to a bday party today but with DS sleeping so late and not feeling 100% I told DH that I really didn’t want to take him to be around a ton of kids and germs, not that he won’t be next weekend in Disney

I have another follow up with the surgeon tomorrow morning and hope he is still happy with my progress, I know I did too much last week and I surely felt it, but I am hoping I didn’t do any damage. Then need to stop at the mall and pick up some sweats for DD and maybe a quick run into the liquor store since I will be on that side of town

Okay now to catch up on this chatty bunch today, skipping the bolding and smilies so I can finally get this cut and pasted over from Word.

Jeanette – The kids know that CL is a one time deal (for now anyway), I am excited to be able to watch Wishes even on the MVMCP night. YAY YAY YAY on GF this summer!!!! I know you are disappointed that you are not going in Jan and it wont be the same without the RC’ers, but at least you have a great summer trip to look forward to. I think your advice to Candace was so true…we don’t always plan for what we have, sometimes it is just up to a greater power. I honestly believe if DD hadn’t been so difficult we would definitely have more.

Letthewookiein – In regards to your question about certain views and discounts, I am finding that there is no hard and fast rule anymore. I know for our trip next weekend at CR, everyone kept saying that TPV was not included but when I called CRO she offered it to me with a discount (we didn’t take it) but then when I was checking again I noticed that the CL rooms were now being offered with a discount and they definitely were not before. I think it is getting harder to predict which views and dates are going to be included in the discounts. Oh my, so scary about DS’ concussions! I know there is so much lately about trying to prevent these injuries in football and so many parents scared to let their kids play. Oh and I love the scarf!

Linda – that is CRAZY that the dessert party opened up on Black Friday, leave it to Disney to make no sense at all Glad you got the date you wanted!

Shelia – are you packed and ready to go?

Padawans – I am so sorry DH didn’t make it home for the holiday. I hope by now you are settled into the GC and relaxing with DH. Sounds like you definitely need this little trip.

Marie – I think you are going to need a straight jacket by the time Jan rolls around! Hang in there, we are here for you!!

Janet – I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Christine – love the new traditions with Sophia! And the puppy is soooo cute!!!!

Linda - OH NO!!! I am so sorry to hear about your fall and the knee. How is it doing tonight? Please get it checked out, there is so much that can wrong in the knee. I walked around for 6 months knowing I needed knee surgery after an accident and of course only made it worse. Take care of yourself!!!!!

Miss – LMAO about MIL! I was so lucky with my first MIL and even Step-MIL (I was happy to give up the ex but I miss those two, lol) but this one I am stuck with now it just unbelievable. You wouldn’t believe the stories I have about her!!!

Jen - oh you are a horrible person too, that must be what brings us together for sure I am a stuck up princess who does nothing for my husband, doesn’t know how to discipline my kids, and is wrong about just everything, how about you????

Sarah – good luck at the doctors this week!!


Candace – do you have Poly fever again??????

Hello to everyone I am missing! Andrew (DS19) is waiting for me on the couch to watch some tv, so I better go before he doesnt want to spend time with my anymore, LOL!

Melissa

Nope, not Poly fever.

Just not feeling like giving up location is worth saving $450.

Has decided that he needs to take a day and go to Universal to see HP too he doesnt care about the price.....just said book it! So I gave him undercover tourists website to order a one day ticket.

I never thought booking 11 days of deluxe dining would be so hard....but boy it was a challenge!
Glad you took off the time. Sounds like you needed it!

I would've liked to book the Poly or WL, BUT the discount I have is only GF, BC or YC..out of those choices...with the new pool, splash area, CS, shops, monorail and boat to MK....GF for sure...Standard View at GF is WAAAYYY prettier than YC/BC...he agreed with me, he asked that I don't upgrade to CL. And I understand, we do not get our money's worth at all...with the fact our discount is over 40%...I am going to try very hard not to change...doubtful I could ever beat this rate. It's only for GV. With over 8 months...I can afford this trip (and a Dec. 2013 Grannie trip ) I am so glad I spoke openly with DH, because HRH and I are already planning a trip to the new Spa
Yay for GF! A spa day with the girls sounds Sorry about the January trip

Good for you! I hope you can plan something wonderful

I'm upgrading my passes to the premier. I booked 3 nights at the Grand California with 30% off. Dh is working, but he gets of at 2pm. Hopefully this is his last week of training. I think I am going to continue ft and him pt. He is going to do some work from home. I just can't handle the boys as well as he can. They really need their dad to lay down the law. I didn't realize how much until the past 2 weeks.

I just decided to do all this today when I got called in for my second overtime shift. I love spontaneous trips. I'll let you guys know what I think of the left coast Disney. I have been few dozen times, but not in the last 5 years.

May 1-14 and Sept 7-15 will be our Orlando trips. I won't even try to guess how those trips will end up, but I got lots of ideas running around in my head.
Wow! You have had a lot going on! Enjoy DLR!

We were just about to cross the street, DH and DD in front of me, when I slipped on something and took the hardest fall straight down on my left knee .... the last time I felt such pain was 13 years ago when I broke my wrist! Well there I was crumbled on the ground and as luck would have it the fire department was having a meeting of the chiefs across the street at the Starbucks. Two very nice chiefs came rushing over to help me just as I was getting up and offered to take me to the hospital which I declined. I managed to make it back to the truck using DH and DD as crutches ... no way I could put any weight on it! Managed to get home ... now one good thing since DD has had so many knee injuries/surgeries we have crutches and a wheelchair. So instead of a fun day out I spent the rest of the day and evening laying on the couch watching college football. RICE .... without the compression. This morning I am able to put some weight on it but this is not ending up to be the fun filled weekend I had planned!!! Is there a smiley on crutches????
I'm so sorry that happened I agree with the others. Get it checked out!

So nice to see you back, Letthewookiewin! That scarf is absolutely GORGEOUS!

Linda: Yikes! Have you been taking anything for it? Ibu?

Christine: We can keep up on FB now!

Pas: I seriously need to get over to your TR. Missing out. How was your turkey-sicle?!


Sarah: How was your Thanksgiving? The turkey came out GREAT! So moist. Love it when it works out as intended. Everything was good except for the rolls (which I didn't make) and no having to gnaw on half-frozen turkey... so I'd call it a success.

Marie: Eesh, another month before you get your respite. It will pass by quickly!

Candace: Came back to late to add anything... but you and your hubs rock, that's all.

I_Heart, Jen and Melissa: Could it be possible that we have the ... same MIL? It all sounds so strangely familiar.

Jen: Oh that Poly comment.
Oh no Miss, not you too. Sorry you have to go through it Yay for good turkey though!

As I mentioned in my text - several years ago I had a very similar fall...waited a couple of days and decided it should be looked at - had 3 hairline fractures! So, please, do consider having it checked out tomorrow?
In the meantime - sending loads of ISPD (Industrial Strength Pixie Dust) for quick healing...and little pain.



I'd be happy to fill in as MIL.

Sooo....here I sit, reading the DIS, catching up, enjoying Christmas Music...when on comes "When You Wish Upon A Star"...and here come the tears. It always gets me misty-eyed, but today it was like a faucet broke. What is it about Disney that makes us smile and weep?
Yes, please. I accept. I'll have to send a memo to my MIL and let her know her serviced are no longer needed. I'm a sap for that song too. Forget it if I hear the Wishes soundtrack.

DD came in and out and just kept snuggling up with DH and I while the boys slept. DS19 of course sleeps all day, but DS9 is usually up and going by 8-8:30am on the weekends, but not today, he slept til noon so I know he is fighting something. I am worried because he got sick and spiked a fever the week before his endoscopy in August and we had to reschedule and we still ended up in the ER after the procedure. I am hoping we don’t have a repeat next week. We were supposed to go to a bday party today but with DS sleeping so late and not feeling 100% I told DH that I really didn’t want to take him to be around a ton of kids and germs, not that he won’t be next weekend in Disney

I have another follow up with the surgeon tomorrow morning and hope he is still happy with my progress, I know I did too much last week and I surely felt it, but I am hoping I didn’t do any damage. Then need to stop at the mall and pick up some sweats for DD and maybe a quick run into the liquor store since I will be on that side of town

Letthewookiein – In regards to your question about certain views and discounts, I am finding that there is no hard and fast rule anymore. I know for our trip next weekend at CR, everyone kept saying that TPV was not included but when I called CRO she offered it to me with a discount (we didn’t take it) but then when I was checking again I noticed that the CL rooms were now being offered with a discount and they definitely were not before. I think it is getting harder to predict which views and dates are going to be included in the discounts. Oh my, so scary about DS’ concussions! I know there is so much lately about trying to prevent these injuries in football and so many parents scared to let their kids play. Oh and I love the scarf!


Melissa
Oh yuck, I hope DS feels better very soon and that you get a report at the Dr.

To piggyback on your comments to letthewookiein about discounts, I did notice that often even when Savannah view is not included in a discount that CL is. Savannah view plus a lounge. Just sayin...

Just not feeling like giving up location is worth saving $450.
So, back to BC again?
