oh it wasn't in the dryer (this time). It was just loose in the garage and when we went to walk into the garage was on the floor striking at him.

One time, last summer (or fall) he went to a house in the country. It too was a dryer in the garage and it wasn't heating. The DH got the dryer front taken off and the problem was a rattlesnake caught up in it. Luckily, it was caught in such a way, that it couldn't get to my DH, because he said he looked like it was trying to strike at him (but it was in too much of a bind to be able to). When he told the customer, she didn't believe him. He took her out and showed it to her, and told her to call animal control. Once the snake was out, he would come back out and take a look at it, but he was pretty sure once the snake was removed the dryer would work again.

Which made me thinks of something, since we have so many ladies from different parts of the US (and Canada) I have a question for y'all. Here in Texas, being a Native Texan is something to be proud of, is it the same way with being a native resident of other states?

A big HELLO to everyone!! Have not had a chance to comment on what I've missed over the weekend...will go back and get caught up...
PAS/ JANET! OMG!!!!!! would LOVE for you to join the DIVA trip!!!! I have room in my room for a roomie! It would cut your room cost in half! But yes, if you guys decide to come, that would be amazing, I'm sure Linda would be thrilled as well! Almost like a mini RCer meet if you guys can swing it, the more the merrier, and I would LOVE to spend 5 fun filled days with you gals! I think this trip will be extra fun..... How amazing for so many women with the same love to get together and just HAVE FUN!
I'll keep fingers crossed you gals can make it happen!

Hmmm...I am not sure I'm extremely proud to be from Illinois necessarily, but I will claim the Midwest in general. :-)

We're back! After a very long travel day (stuck at border for 2 hours dur to construction) we made it home around 7 pm. Phew, that's all I can say. What a whirlwind.

The kiddos were bonkers at times.... Let's just say DH swore on the way home that our Boston trip is going to be just us two. We'll see. But what the heck was I thinking? Tomorrow morning is our ADR day for our November trip!!! And DH is not quite in the mood to discuss. Not that we didn't have any amazing time, but wow I could have timed this a bit better. What the heck should I do? DH is like, we may not even go in November. I know it is the post Disney burn out, but not sure if I should even bother with ADRs. Crappy thing is I have already booked airlines. Hopefully his funk passes. The kiddos were crazy the past few days though.

Ended up booking the BB for AoA Lion King suite, POR wasn't available for Alligator Bayou only the RR which don't fit us. I know...WTH???

I am sure I will be changing that, either to POR if a better public or AP discount comes out or bump us up to Beach Club again, but non CL this time. It was amazing though and Miss we did meet Neil, he was a doll.

Oh yes, and the girls did do Jedi Training! It was awesome, and the Cantina Band helped lead their group down the street to the stage....that was super neat!

I will catch up here I promise....

Welcome back sweetie!!!!

Get some sleep, there's plenty of time to catch up!

You could just make reservations for the ADR's you know you want and go from there. You don't want to miss out once that post Disney funk dissipates....

it's just hard, we had kind of felt on this trip that we have given them too much. They are grateful, but it is really hard to know if we are doing the right thing for them by going back again so soon in Nov. We do not want them to become spoiled brats you know? They are good kids, and we want to keep it that way. Sigh...

I absolutely understand.

For us, it comes down to this. Our daily lives are so hectic...so full of work, school, sports, community work, etc... Sometimes I feel like we are all ships passing in the night. So many times DH and I have to pick and chose what stuff we are going to for what kid, and we can't all be there together, because things are happening at the same time.

Our vacation time, is pure uninterrupted family time that is too precious to give up...and perhaps the best thing we can give our children...us....I don't look at it as spoiling, I see it as building the blocks for a solid family.

We don't spoil them a whole lot in the "real world". They don't get toys all the time. The are pushed hard with their academics and athletics and rarely complain about it.

Vacation is a reward for us all, because we all work so hard everyday.

You deserve it too.
