I think Bob might be more carefull taking his meds after yesterday, he fell asleep at the wheel and nearly had a headon collision.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend, I was hopeing to get out to the cemeteries but if the weather will cooperate
Wow that sounds so scary!

Raglan Road vs 50s Primetime...?

Maybe canceling lunch at PT and do CS at HS instead for lunch...then Kona for dinner before EMH at MK that evening (instead of Tony's)...then instead of dinner at Kona or Raglan on resort day, we could do Primetime for HS EMH that night?

Sorry, I'm itching to make changes since I've promised not to touch the resort side of things! :-)

Thanks everyone for the Birthday Wishes. Had a nice day, my daughters took me out to see Star Trek then had a family dinner, husband made a nice BBQ with bacon wrapped tenderloin, birthday cake, and presents! Monday my girlfriends are taking me out to dinner.

On another note, what's with that Edmonton truck driver? Dont they explain up thete your not suppose to Take out the bridge on I-5, hope they have another bridge up or can fix that one by August when I have to drive down for my Florida flight

JennyJinx about BC CL
Sorry about DHs student. So sad. A school secretary's (in my district) daughter committed suicide this year fir the same reason. Some high school kids can be so terribly mean, it makes me sick.

Koh. Hard decision, I've ate at all but Crystal Palace. So if you haven't tried Raglan Road, I'd do that option.
Hi Sue I know he's an Alberta truck driver -- I hadn't heard he was from Edmonton! I hope they have the bridge fixed or a decent detour by the time you drive down!

Thank you. It started out with me looking for hotels to check into the night before we check into WDW. Then I realized for what we could pay for non-Disney hotels, we could pay for a night at a value and then Disney would transfer our bags to the AKL for us instead of us having to do it. When I talked to the DH about it, he suggested doing Universal. It was just way more than he wanted to do. Then he suggested adding another night at the AKL and adding another park day. Even though I tried to talk him out of it because it was cheaper to do one night at the Pop, he insisted on doing the AKL. It was an odd parallel universe type of situation. His plan was to add another night to the AKL and then add more time at the MK. Out of all of the parks, the MK is the one I have the longest list of must do attractions.

I know, right? We took our minivan to a dealership, because the inlaws thought it would be better. The fil suggested us getting a radiator flush and he said it is better to have that done at a dealership. Since our mv is a Chrysler and their truck is a Nissian, we didn't take it to the same dealership. As we were dropping it off, the DH asked them if they had charges like the ones my inlaws had. When we were done explaining the charges the inlaws were given, the guy looked surprised. He had never heard of such charges and thought it was crazy. He agreed with us, that the only time people should be charged it when it comes to core charges.

Quick update while I get caught up... :-)

DH and DS are shopping with MIL in Chicago while DD and I spent the day together. :-) We also went shopping for a few things, spent a couple of gift cards we've had for a while, and had a late lunch at Applebee's. She is worn out and down for her second nap of the day! It was nice and she was awesome (until the end when she was tired and cranky and crying about everything).

Hi, all. Happy Memorial Day! We may go to the parade if DH gets back from his morning bike ride in time.

I've been tweaking our vacation a bit. We're staying for two days in Clearwater to visit MIL before we go to WDW. Originally, we were going to stay at the Residence Inn at Treasure Island in a two bedroom suite ($692 for two nights), so DS (19) could have his own room and bath. It seemed like a lot, so I just switched to the Marriott All suites at Sand Key. DS will have to sleep on a queen size sleeper in the living room---just as he will at BCV---but it is only $440 for the same two nights. The difference nearly pays for our rental car.

My sister came to visit yesterday. She lives with my older and somewhat immobilized parents, takes excellent care of them and could certainly use a break for a few days. She asked if she could join us on our WDW trip for three days. She probably won't be staying at BCV though. Maybe she can get a room at BC? If she can't join us in July, we discussed a sisters' trip to celebrate her birthday during Food and Wine which would be so great, assuming I am not entirely impoverished after remodeling our kitchen this summer. http://www.wdwinfo.com/images/smilies/scared07.gif

Enjoy the last day of the long weekend, everyone!

A sister's only trip sounds amazing.

Well I heard from the dealership this morning. To replace the heater hose assembly (where the leak is) is $420. The oil change is about $40. A transmission flush is $146. Then the front brakes have about 2% on them and it'll be $440 to do them, and the good news doesn't stop there. The rear brakes are only at 30% and we may have to have them done by the time of our trip. This week we're only doing the oil change and heater hose assembly. I knew we would have to have some things done before we drove to WDW in September, but I wasn't expecting this much.
