There is no way I can go back and multi quote .... so many pages have gone by but I wanted to thank everyone for their concern about my knee. I am getting better each day. Yesterday DD and I finally made it to the outlets .... since they are so spread out I did use the wheelchair .... payback to DD after the months I spent pushing her around after knee injuries/surgeries! I have spent most of the last three days on flat on my back with my knee iced and elevated! So I've been reading along but it's real hard to post from that position!

Welcome to our new RCers .... you will find this is a wonderful place to hang out. Such an amazing group of ladies.

Such a sad group of MILs some of you seem to have. And I echo Sarah I'd be more than happy to step in as a grandma!!! It's really a wonderful job .... those crazy women don't know what they're missing!!!

Because of my knee I'm a little behind schedule but I did manage to get all the fall decorations down this morning. Then it'll be off to storage to get all the Christmas stuff .... I just don't know which of my themes to do this year ... Santa or woodsy or Disney!! I love Christmas!!!

Have a great day!

Ugh!

I'm admitting defeat here. Sunday night, I woke up in the middle of the night in cold sweat, feeling nauseous, and dizzy....sore joints...yuck.

Went back to sleep, and was OK yesterday, but couldn't eat (no appetite) and muscles sore (mostly upper back and neck).

Was VERY hungry this morning, due to not eating yesterday...got to work and tried to eat breakfast...one bite, and threw up at my desk....

Felt a little better after that, did not finish breakfast...tried to eat some salad for lunch....and up it came!!!!!!

I think I've got a flu of some sort. I am now laying on my couch, not going back to work....uuuuuugggggghhhhhh!!!! I am the worst sick person...I NEVER get sick, I don't have time for this!!

I am out of the Clinical Trial officially next Monday. Having some swallowing issues, can't swallow the HUGE pills they give me, so we move on. Seeing an espophigial specialist next week, who happens to be the surgeon who did both my lung surgeries. He is great, we "negotiated" timing of a surgery a few years ago around a WDW vacation. My kind of doctor!
We leave Saturday morning and will come home Monday evening. Yep, CR CL here we come

I am sorry to hear you are having more issues, but I am happy that you are seeing a dr who knows what is important Good luck and stay strong

Oh Linda, I would still be taking it easy! You probably really need to get that knee checked out! Have fun decorating, I am sure whatever theme you choose will look great!

Yippee!!! A kind soul at the Dolphin heard my plea for help and allowed me to dump my nonrefundable ressie for a full refund!

Which makes room for my newest addition....

3 nights at Poly GV

The Poly is in my blood. Why do I try to fight it? I always want the Poly.

Don't worry Miss still keeping YC CL.

Sarah - My current plan has me at a Poly/YC CL split same dates 12/30-1/7.

I'm sorry to hear you are having swallowing issues. Good thing your doctor is willing to work with you on scheduling for surgery.

Another surrogate grandma for the kiddos

Mousemommy - Hope you feel better soon!

babyberger - So did you get what you wanted at the next Target? I'll bet you are getting super pumped for the weekend!!!!

Grumpy Grandma - Take care of yourself and keep resting that knee! More grammie love! The more the merrier!

jcondrad - A BWI/RPC split Sounds amazing!!!!

sjs - Are you getting packed and excited yet

Oh the RC gods are smiling down on you for sure!!!! YAY!!!! Guess Poly is meant to be

Yes and no on Target, I am looking for the solid long sleeve tees they always have and for whatever reason don't have this year yet in the stores. But I did get everything else. I am so tired and scattered brain that I left a bag at the register, good thing I realized it when I got to the truck and ran back in and got it. I could really use a nap

I want to thank all of you for being so welcoming and the advice on my resort change
When I called, I was able to get a std club room at BWI...with two little ones, the hike to the lounge from a cottage would've been tough (but not impossible!) so I requested large balcony, boardwalk view, 4th floor if at all possible.

I already heard back from their IPO twice!! Compared to GF IPO, i am loving the Epcot resorts

No really, I am just stoked because this was basically his idea!! I may have performed some reverse resort pyschology on him, but hey it's all good!

I am excited for the pool!! We just got a nice warm and fuzzy feeling there when we met up that night.
LOL, so funny how it just clicked that BC is where we met up. Men.

You've gotta ask us some questions -- not that I'm an expert but I just looooove it there. I've got all appendages crossed for your discount.

There is something about YC CL that just doesn't wow me like some of the others. It is a nice perk, but I'm not sure we will use it much. Being so close to Epcot we like to eat there... a LOT!
Mind you, if we were magically upgraded to CL at YC, I'd not turn it down! Hubs and I came to the conclusion, after this past trip, that CL just wasn't worth it for our little lot and how we roll. We never found ourselves at the hotel -- other than sleeping and swimming. We do love going over to ESPN, too ... really enjoyed Bluezoo and have to go to Fresh for breakfast (when we're not at the parks). It kinda decided it for us.

Ya know, YC & BC CL really could go with a little something different that sets them apart from the other CLs. Like how the Poly has that lovely punch, the scones at GF, the food at AKL and cobbler at WL? It's just missing that little extra something special, I think so anyway. Having said all that, the staff on CL (at BC anyway) have been standout good the past two trips -- IPO, too. Don't mind me, I'm just theorizing -- a.k.a. talking to myself -- here!

CR TPV is looking pretty right about now. If I could get it with a snack room I'd be sold!

Stupid stupid CL
Sooooooooooooo? Still holding strong?!

Slept on it, still thinking. Don't know why it's so hard for me to pull the trigger.
No, I know....we still need new tires, we still want to finish the basement, we still want to replace the flooring in our kitchen.....you know....non Disney stuff

Feeling.....responsible

Not POR/value responsible!!!! Just BC GV (no CL) and poss no SWW responsible....
Responsibilities. Blah. Yeah, me too, me too.

I was just at Target. I need to stay out of the little dollar section. Almost bought all of The Christmas Story tchotchkes. C'mon weekend... can't wait to hear your review of CR!

You've got a great bunch of docs. It's reassuring to know you're in good hands... and I hope they can suss out the issue for you quickly. Is there anything further planned trial-wise after next Monday?

I like to tell myself that my MIL lives in an alternate reality. (It has the added benefit of helping me keep my cool.) Our RCing Grandmas are FABULOUS ... we are a lucky lot.

I need help... I'm clueless.

I know this is where I should ask:

Kiddo got invited to a birthday party. What sorts of things does one give a girl turning 6? How much should I spend?

(You'd think having a girl of roughly the same age would make this easy but it doesn't; I'm too inept at social norms. )

One thing I do love about this party -- they're holding at a local no-kill animal shelter. Such a sweet idea for kids and brings money to the organization. We almost adopted from this particular place but went with our mutt who was living in a foster home. It was love at first sight.

Such a sad group of MILs some of you seem to have. And I echo Sarah I'd be more than happy to step in as a grandma!!! It's really a wonderful job .... those crazy women don't know what they're missing!!!

Please take it easy on you knee with all the decorating, can you delegate some tasks at all?? I love Christmas too!

Your multi quoting skills inspired me! Yes gotta love the DH's, sometimes I need to let him feel like he has some 'great' ideas about our trips!! I know, I am terrible!

And yes, the questions will be coming!

Just back from Costco, my first visit with our own membership card! I love it there! Only got food, but going to go back on Friday with DH as we have the day together to do some shopping!!

Have a great day everyone and feel better Candace.

My DD6 is into LEGO friends right now (the one for girls...lego that is pink and purple). It is not too pricey, maybe $25??

Also, I like giving indigo/chapters gift cards (a bookstore, not sure if you have them in the states).

Anything crafty is always a hit with my girls too. Hope that helps you!!

Around here, it's the whole family. We get them every Father's Day for all the men. My oldest just doesn't really like cake. Which is why Fudgie is perfect.

Have you tried looking on line for what you want? That's what I usually do if I'm looking for something specific.

Was VERY hungry this morning, due to not eating yesterday...got to work and tried to eat breakfast...one bite, and threw up at my desk....

Felt a little better after that, did not finish breakfast...tried to eat some salad for lunch....and up it came!!!!!!

I think I've got a flu of some sort. I am now laying on my couch, not going back to work....uuuuuugggggghhhhhh!!!! I am the worst sick person...I NEVER get sick, I don't have time for this!!
I hope you feel better soon!! We have a bug going around here too.

Which makes room for my newest addition....

3 nights at Poly GV

The Poly is in my blood. Why do I try to fight it? I always want the Poly.
That is awesome you got a full refund.

I know this is where I should ask:

Kiddo got invited to a birthday party. What sorts of things does one give a girl turning 6? How much should I spend?

(You'd think having a girl of roughly the same age would make this easy but it doesn't; I'm too inept at social norms. )

One thing I do love about this party -- they're holding at a local no-kill animal shelter. Such a sweet idea for kids and brings money to the organization. We almost adopted from this particular place but went with our mutt who was living in a foster home. It was love at first sight.
I never spent more than $20-25 on a gift for a kid's birthday party. What to get is a lot harder. I like to buy books for kids. For girls, my boys liked going to Build a Bear and make them a friend.


I'm starting to think this thread in enabling me. Now I wanna stay at either the Yacht or Beach Club. Someone needs to take my internet privilege away so I'll stop looking at resorts.
