Have you seen the thunder jackets you can buy? My mom was telling about a homemade type version of it, but can't remember it now.

I haven't said anything on Facebook because there's no need for my MIL to find out that I'm not working. I've been busy though. Organizing, steam cleaned the carpets, lots of projects, laundry... all things I've put off too long!

My friend is coming the 2nd week in April and staying at the WL. I'm excited to see the new rooms for myself!! I also have BCV booked for 4 nights in September. If a job comes thru quick, I'll have my birthday at YC, but for now.... I'm holding off.

I'm glad I'll have more time to spend with my RC'ers now I miss you guys like crazy!!!
I'm sorry your job was so miserable, you had to go to that extreme. Hopefully, you find your dream job and it pays you well.

I am the same way, especially groups of teenage girls. I had tossed around the idea of becoming a high school, or middle school, history teacher. Then I decided it was impossible since I can't stand teenagers, or their parents, who think their children are perfect little angels that could never ever possibly do anything wrong and I should be kissing their feet every day for them allowing me to breath the same air as their child.

I do not approve of Danimal hitting the other kid but the school needs to step it. If someone was bothering me and getting away with it I know I would hit a breaking point. And we are talking about a class of special Ed kids classified as emotionally disturbed. It's been a long and exhausting night. Everyone points the finger. Every teacher said it wasn't in their class of course. So very frustrating. Tomorrow we go back to his developmental pediatrician. I have some videos to show her and hopefully this will get her to do something new for him. There's so much going on with him that it's hard to reign everything in and get him on track. Sorry to vent. Thanks for listening!
I hate parent teacher nights, or open house nights. The hallways are always way too crowded. Then there are always kids with those shoes with the wheels in them, that shouldn't have them on in a school building anyway, but their parents think it's ok because "their child knows they can't use the wheels in the school, and they would never do something they weren't supposed to do." Then as soon as they get out of sight of their parents they are wheeling through the halls, dodgy in and around parents with strollers or small children, sometimes making the small child fall, or tripping up a parent.

I know our district has one, but does your district have a bullying no tolerance policy? If they don't, they should. If you aren't getting any help from the teacher, go to the vice principal, and then the principal. Part of their jobs is to keep every child safe. If they are unwilling to help, I would go above them to the district office. I would let them know, that since they aren't doing their job in keeping your son safe from a bully, you were going to the district office. I wouldn't stop until either they solved the problem, or you were sitting in the superintendents office.

I hope all goes well with the doctor. Hopefully, the video will help the doctor come up with something new to help your DS.

We stayed at the CBR back in 2004, before they did any renovations. We really loved it. Even if you don't get one of those building, you'll be fine. We were in Trinidad South, and I'm almost positive we were in building 34. One night I walked back from Old Port Royale. It was after a long day in the parks. I thought the walk went very quickly, and it was so relaxing after a long day of rush-rush-rush.

Here's the dining line up (we tend to do light breakfast, late bigger lunch and then snackies in the lounge if we've booked CL)

Day 1 arrive in the evening, WL
Day 2 3pm afternoon tea Grand Floridian
Day 3 3pm late lunch Yak and Yeti
Day 4 Move to YC probably just munch at F&W, maybe take a class
Day 5 3pm Chefs de France (I will cancel this if they offer the F&W French Regional lunches and we can get a reservation)
Day 6 3pm Le Cellier and maybe a class
Day 7 Blue Zoo for Dinner (Hope they are part of Sept. Magical Dining again.)
Your plans look great!!

Perhaps talking with Joey’s last period teacher would be good, since the bullying has gone on in their classroom.
I told Joey, he has until Friday to take care of it on his own. On Monday, I will be calling to talk to the teacher.

We have no kids so we just take a lazy river spin and chill in a quiet end of the SAB pool and talk with our crew. The chairs don't take any sightline and you don't even see the seat. ...Enjoy planning your Riverwalk getaway.
I swear I could just kiss you or buy you a spiced dole whip float. That was the answer I was hoping for. I just want to get in the lazy river and go round and round and round. Plus, I'll feel better about JM (well and Joey too) being in the chairs in the lazy river since they aren't strong swimmers.

Thank you. Everything is already planned, except the resort. We can't book that until the IRS gives us our money.

Well, we still do not have our tax return. I assumed it would be done the morning of, but maybe they don't issues the refunds until midnight the day of or something. This is just getting beyond ridiculous. We filed on 2/2, the IRS didn't start processing Education Credits (form 8863) until 2/14, the IRS accepted our return on 2/15, and we were finally given a refund deposit date of 3/20. I'm not waiting on a paper check, but they are directly depositing into my account. It's been 46 days (1 month, 19 days) since we filed our taxes. The crazy thing is, if we had just waited until 2/27 or later to have gotten them done, we would have our money already.

Hi to all RCers! This week has been crazy with being back in the classroom. I feel like I'm rushing all the time. But know that I'm reading your posts and at the very least I can respond a bit more next week because it's Spring Break! :-). Now if only we were going to Disney NOW as opposed to 5 months from now...

Hi Deena! Thanks so much for your prayers and support, it means the world to me knowing you are there I hope you find something that will make you very happy! Anyone would be blessed to have you.

When bad news comes, sometimes it seems like it rains-- last night I found out my Dad is in the hospital with a foot infection. They need to either do a bypass through his groin for blocked arteries or else if they can't get the circulation and infection under control, he may need to have his leg amputated. the thing is the drs are trying to figure out what procedure will be the lesser of evils -- none are a good choice really, as they don't know if he can survive the procedures. I should know in a day or two what course of action they will take. Might have to purchase a plane ticket home depending on outcomes. It's been an overwhelming month! I'm drained

Well the good news is, the IRS finally sent the refund. The bad news it, H&R Block said it could take up to 4 more days for my bank to process it. Right now it's not even showing up on my online account as pending, which worries me. Hopefully, it won't take that long.

Since I have school again tonight, I think I'm going to treat myself to half a Thai Chopped Chicken salad and half a Big Kid Grilled Cheese.


ETA.....
I called the bank, both the branch I use and the 800 number, and they don't know the pending deposit in their bank either. Maybe it's because it was just done sometime in the late night hours. I double checked to make sure H&R Block entered my correct information, and they did. I am just so upset right now. I know I need to go to school, but I don't think I can make it through class. I'm already on the verge of tears. If we don't get this money, no San Antonio and there is no way WDW is gonna happen.
