to all.

I_Heart: Oh. My. That is totally unacceptable; they'd best fix it. Wow. I'm so glad he came to you... poor kiddo. Please let us know how it turns out.

Melissa: Careful at Target! I'd with all the "stay home" votes... count me in the paranoid category too ( Jeanette.)

Jen: Doing a discount dance for you... I know it'll happen.

Jeanette: You. are. amazing. Masters program! Seriously, I don't know how you find the time.

Wookie: That hat is so pretty! Love the colour. Can't tell from the pic, but is it a soft, fuzzy yarn? Kinda looks that way. Also, I can give my verdict on Rosati's. (Mind you, I'm an east coaster so I don't consider Chicago-style deep dish as even being worthy of the pizza moniker.) I've only had Rosati's regular crust and it's pretty good. I don't have pizza very often but we've recently had Jet's (a Michigan based company) open in the area and I'd take their pizza over any of the other local offerings. They've got a nice Sicilian-style thick crust which is quite yumm-o.

Candace: Minimal ADRs. Yeeeeeeah! I kinda feel a bit bad about the one we do have for such a short trip but it is for our first Le Cellier lunch. Figured we couldn't try it without!

Janet: I'm with Sam. I always wanted glasses when I was younger... unfortunately, my wish came true with a vengeance!

Hi everyone, let's see if I can catch up!

pas, yay for going for your Masters, good for you! Now then, should I change your hotel from the GF to YC CL on the first page?

i heart, my heart breaks to hear that any child is bullied in school. A teacher retiring is no excuse for not wanting to get involved. I would wait for the principal you know, I think you might get better results with some closer to the situation. Meanwhile, give your son lot of hugs,

mousemommy, sorry about the bonus but hope the raise comes through!

miss, I remember my DD's being in the Daisy Scouts. Soooo cute! Tell Miss M, I am good for some cookies!!!! I will even pay shipping

padawans, so sorry to hear about your DH's scare. I hope he is feeling better and glad he has his own private nurse

babyberger, I understand your hesitation to go out when your son is having a procedure today. Hope all goes well and you have a relaxing evening with your family, free of medical issues! AND, Happy Hanukkah!

Grumpy Grandma, hope you had a wonderful birthday, glad I remembered correctly! Believe me there are times when my brain turns to mush AND, I will find you and Janet at WDW no matter where you end up. Obviously I would love to see you two at WL, but I suspect we won't know until you arrive. A true RCer, 3 reservations for resorts at once!

Janet, lot's of things on your plate next week. I will be in touch and sending you lot's of

I know I am forgetting a lot of people, sorry, so much to do before tomorrow.

When the DH work for the IT department for CitiFinacial, he had to go to Chicago for a month when they changed to new software. He fell in love with the Chicago stuffed pizzas. When a pizza place opened up in our town in TX that was had Chicago stuffed pizzas he was so happy. The family had moved from Chicago, but it didn't last long b/c the service sucked. Then another "Chicago style" pizza place moved in & the owners claimed to have lived on the south side of Chicago their entire lives, but we're clueless on what a stuffed pizza was. Even after we describe it in detail, they looked at me like I had two heads. On favorite pizza place right now is a family owned place that the family moved from New Jersey to North Texas to get away from the Jersey winters. Their pizza is amazing!! David found a Rosati's while he was driving around for work. He just hates to try it and it not be a true Chicago-style stuffed pie. Especially since it's like a 30 drive from our house.

UGH....just back from the hospital. DD4 had her swimming lessons this morning and while doing a jump into the pool, she decided to turn back towards the edge. Not like her at all, she really is a good swimmer normally. Anyhoo...she banged her chin off the wall, and ended up needing 4 stitches.

Mommy was literally, but held it together. DD8 who was home sick today was all, DH was us all, and my parents who came down to help out by taking DD8 home while we were at the hospital were all .

Turned out fine though, no tears from my toughie the DR. was great and it was all over lickety split. It was one of those moments when I wanted to tell her about our next Disney trip.

So that is all, just thought I would share out drama!

Hope you are all having a good day!!!

Omg I would have been like too. She's tougher than I am, I would have been crying so much, the doctor would have no knock me out to put the stitches in. Hopefully no more drama for you and she heals super quick.

Sadly now I have to go to work!!! Ah well, it could've been a lot worse had she hit the jawbone instead of under her chin. Wine later...

I'm sending you extra-strength and for tomorrow. Let us know how things go.

You're safe on long-distance cookies until at least next year! (The troop leader decided they'd hold off until they were a bit older. Phew! Although, this means I'll have to procure Thin Mints elsewhere.

I just looked at their menu and it says they serve stuffed so you might be in luck with Rosati's. He's a brave man, your DH.

Oooooooh NO! Poor DD! Give her some hugs from Miss M and I... and some for you, too. Yikes. I can only imagine how awful it looked. She's a tough cookie!

Oh Jenny, so sorry to hear about the swimming mishap. My little friend is a brave little girl. Poor Mommy though, good for you for holding it together. Having a glass of wine later sounds like a good plan.

Your DD is braver at 4 than I am at 24! Glad she's okay and props to you for keeping it together! (and you so deserve that drink tonight. ;-) )

Today is my last day of classes and it's also only 27 days until my Disney trip and even less until Christmas! Do you think my professors will accept a note from you guys saying I'm suffering from Disney induced amnesia and can't take my finals?

I have a feeling that these boards are going to be my go-to procrastination tool for the next two weeks. Get ready. :-)

Sarah sending you lots of extra well wishes and hugs! No need to look for Janet and me at WDW ..... we know where to find you!!!

Jen so sorry about you DD ... glad she is okay. Stay strong mama there will be many more accidents .... sorry for the bad news .... but just my experience .... also the kiddos always make it thru better than mama!

wookie do you by any chance have instructions for the mickey head scarf you made? If so, maybe you could pm them to me or pm me and I'll send you my email.

Quiet afternoon today .... just sitting on the couch addressing Christmas cards for my DL Diva group. Only about 20 of us signed up for the exchange so that isn't too much to do. As of now there are 70 ladies signed up for the Diva trip!!! I'm very shy .... not sure how I'll handle this .... (worried look on my face)

Have a good afternoon/evening ladies!

Before leaving for the day, though I'd check in with my peeps

Jenny: So thankful your DD is okay and weathered it like a trooper! And you may have been shaking on the inside, but sure your DD saw the brave momma at her side. Wine is definitely in order later!!

Have a widow maker of a heart attack before he was 40, but he wouldn't know he had one b/c he would be dead before he hit the ground. He did good, for a while. Then he stopped getting fills, b/c they hurt too much and he pushes to eat more. He's back up to 450-ish, I would guess. I don't care about him looking like Channing Tatum, I just want him healthy and breathing.
And he needs to be there for you and the boys!! Start slow and build up to it... you can do it together!!

Slow and easy gets there in the end.

Hi RC Buddies! I am still getting caught up from our trips. Maybe my list of to-do's will get shorter one of these days!


JC-Thinking of you and sending get well wishes to you for tomorrow. Won't be long till you are relaxing in that beautiful lodge!

I Heart-Sure hope the school works with you and gets this properly resolved. Hang in there. We are here for you!
And on a lighter note, your comment about the teacher's give a darn being broken made me think of a Jo Dee Messina song from a few years back..

Missout, We love girl school cookies. Congrats to Miss M on becoming a Daisy!

Lettinthewookie-You have amazing knitting skills! I enjoy seeing your projects.

Jenny- Oh dear! I hope your dd's chin heals soon. What a day! Hope you get to put your feet up and relax later.

Bandits Mommy-Not sure if professors take notes from invisible friends.
Sending you good luck wishes as you take your finals.

GG-A very happy belated birthday to you! Your Disney Diva trip sounds like lots of fun. I'm shy too, I understand. When meeting new folks, especially, I just have to remind myself I will be glad I went, and then go. If I think too much I lose my nerve.

Janet- I don't have a thin mint source here. Keep me in mind when cookie time comes.

Waving hi to RC friends I missed.
