Well Happy Birthday to your sister! You know what 9 months from today is, right? Valentine's Day! Lucky for me, I was born a few weeks early so I wasn't a Valentine's Day baby! If your sister is anything like my sister, we are complete opposites!

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! Hopefully once I have kids, I will learn to like birthdays more. My family never made a big deal out of them and maybe I can change that. In my 25 years both my parents were living, I only spent 1 birthday with both of my parents (my 25th, I spent it with them in China, the last one my dad was around for, best birthday ever) My dad didn't even make it on the day I was born, I was born early and he was on a business trip! My mom hasn't even called yet

I am leaving the dump soon. Lots and lots of trucks today! Tomorrow I start working overnights where it will be much slower so I am sure I will be bored and trying to stay awake. Hello coffee! I just keep thinking of how I can use the overtime money on the cruise! Disney in a few days!

I haven't been with my family for Christmas for 5 years and we planned to fly from Miami to spend a week with them in Phoenix for Christmas, but if we have a contract, I'll have to cancel those plans to sign papers for the close.
Can't your lawyer do the papers for you? Let her FAX them to you and she can represent you at the close.

John and I will be volunteering at the half and full Disney Marathons in January, as we have annually for about 5 years. We will be checking the runners' bags. If you are running it, come say hello!

Tammy - sending healing thoughts your way.

Emily - happy birthday, but I feel the same as you about the celebrations. Enjoy the landfill! I think that would be quite interesting.

Liz

I work overnights, so if you are bored and able to log on, we can chat. I often stay logged on and check periodically during my shift. I know it is morning on the East Coast when Lindababe signs on for her morning hello. That is also my warning to get all my work done before the morning staff start showing up.

I wish that was guaranteed! I'm still waiting. I, for one, would like to go back to 25. Such a simpler, happier time. College was done, my husband was still here and I wasn't raising kids alone. I became widowed at 31... so far 30's suck!

Regarding birthdays...I don't celebrate my own but I do celebrate my kids, although for me their birthdays are truly bittersweet now. It's hard not to focus on what their dad has missed out on and they truly show just how much time has passed. For them though, they are just kids and like most kids, LOVE their birthdays. Kid's parties can get really out of hand financially and I don't want to fall into that x 3. So my kids get parties every other year.

I'm praying for you too Tammy. I hope the surgery went well and that you will be able to amaze the dr's with your recovery!!

Happy Birthday Emily. Back (way back), when I turned 30, my husband planned a surprise party for me. However, that day my daughter came down with the stomach flu and spent the day throwing up so the party was cancelled. I got to spend my 30th bday cleaning up vomit so I'd say your day is going better than mine did. Besides, who wants just a one day celebration when we can all have 14 days of celebrations on the Wonder

I still haven't received my cruise documents and I haven't heard from my TA about them either. Should I be worried? I checked the DCL site last night and we still haven't been assigned a room yet. We booked a GTY so I realize that we might not find out yet. However, my dad booked the same deal as us, months after us and when I checked his reservation, he has been assigned a room on Deck 5. What's up with that?

Also, I see lots of people making plans to travel together from the Miami port to the Fort Lauderdale Airport, what about those of you who are flying out of Miami? We are flying out of MIA at 1:25 pm. Will there be transportation available at the port, as in a taxi, or do I need to make arrangements with a shuttle company? Anyone know how far it is from the port to the airport?

Oh no!!! Sending you lots of good thoughts, wishes and pixie dust that everything goes better than expected and your trip will happen as planned.

When I have kids, we aren't going to celebrate birthdays! And that way, I won't have to deal with slumber parties or the cost of laser tag!
Happy 1st Anniversary of your 29th Birthday! As long as there is cake, it's all good!

It's less than 10 miles from the port to MIA. Disney is offering transfers for $20/person. According to the Port of Miami website (http://www.miamidade.gov/portmiami/p...sportation.asp), there should be taxis waiting there and the fare to the airport is a flat fee of $24. So it seems like that would be the cheaper option for two people.
