Thankful it's spring break, andrew won't miss any school at least!

some awesome news and a big bright spot of sun in my otherwise dreary month -- OUR Christine has agreed to be my roomie and join me on our DIVA trip next FEB 26-MAr2 in Disneyland!! we'll be jammin it up at the GRAND CALIFORNIAN HOTEL! soooo happy to finally get to meet her and have a friendly face by my side for the girls trip! It will be awesome as our LINDA and her daughter Jessica will be there too!!! just like a little RCer meet! I am sooo excited and happy to be going and this will get me through the year for sure

back on April 3, will miss you all but will try to read and keep somewhat up to date :P
Safe travels my friend. I know you'll be busy but try to check in when you can so we'll all know you are okay.

Christine is coming on the Diva trip???? Yay!!! That will be so much fun!

So that's good.

I still hope that they (our gov't) just figures this all out, because it is so unfair to all of the hard workers, who might not have options like my DH. It's also not good for morale on his base, you know?

Anyway, it's Friday, I've got an hour and a half left of work, and then family game night tonight!
Although, I have a feeling DD8 is going to pick Monopoly...

Good thing I bought some beer!
I hope game night was a blast! Great for you and DH. It's definitely great to hear that you guys are making the best of this situation, and you're right. It makes me so mad that these politicians never go without pay despite the crap job they're doing, but these military personnel that sacrifice so much are just treated with no regard like they don't even matter.

Since her birthday falls in June and she can't take the heat , we've done her "birthday present" trip in April for the last few years and it has worked out quite well. She is such a spoiled Disney princess. I know she only wants Poly so she can LOVING GAZE at her favorite CR across the Seven Seas Lagoon.

I am thinking of all our furlough-affected RCers. Ugh to the waiting... and waiting... and waiting.
Hurray! Sounds like a fantastic trip!

To celebrate finally getting the money, I drove to the Cheesecake Factory and got us a to-go lunch of their chicken and shrimp gumbo and a slice of Red Velvet Cake Cheesecake. For dinner, I'll have the left over, because let's face it, there is no way I can eat the entire gumbo in one sitting. I would need a second stomach for that. I did order or new luggage from Overstock and never saw a place to do express or quicker shipping. I didn't notice until after I completed the order that it won't get here until 3/29, and we should be in San Antonio by then. Oh well, at least we'll have it for our WDW trip. Who knows, maybe it'll come early.

ETA.....
I almost forgot....

OUR WDW TRIP IS 100% PAID OFF!!!!
SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!!

Right now, the room is paid for, Sea World tickets are paid for, and I just need to get the movie tickets bought. Then I will have everything paid for that I can pay for ahead of time.

Now Monday, I just have to get the oil changed in the minivan, get the tires and all the fluids check, it vacuum it out and get it washed (well I'll wait until the day of to get it washed). The boys still don't know we're going out of town. I'm keeping an eye on the San Antonio weather and the high is supposed to be in the low 80's, which looks like we'll still be in jeans. Now for this week to fly by!!
You totally deserve this super awesome trip. I can't wait to hear all the details of how much fun you had!

Now where should I stay?????

OKW: cheap points = longer stay ... love the boat to DTD, the music at the pool

AKV: my favorite pools of all the resort pools, animals, lobby, reasonable point cost

BWV or BCV: F&W so really hard to get ..... I did luck out and get 4 nights at BWV last year during F&W so you never know

VWL: it's just home!

Any ideas????
Hmmm I would probably try for BCV or BWV. Although, I do know how hard it is to get them dring F&W.

I agree. They hound the little man. They're wasting more money by auditing me than they would have saved by cutting my refund. All I have to do is send them my W-2's and my proof of my child care costs.

He did do a great job!! At first I was on the Jedi Dad one, but I think it's just from playing too much SW:tOR. They get you conditioned in that game, that all red symbols are Sith and Jedi are blue.

That stinks!! I hope we don't have to go through that now that the DH is self employed. I guess it makes it easier to prove his income since he gets a 1099 from his parents.

You know, if we had that kind of record at our jobs we would have been fired by now. If our boss told us to have a report done, for instance, and it wasn't done when it needed to be, we would be fired. There would be no, have the boss wait for two years for the report to only still not have it and yet still have our jobs.

That would be a first (other than when he was deployed) so I guess I really have no excuse at all now to not book today. I narrowed down dates and resorts, but as always, I'm mildly resort conflicted and I don't know at this rather late date what rooms are still available with the military rate since I have to call to find out. If I don't book something today and put up a new ticker, I think DH will have a fit so off I go to planning
I like his thinking!! I hope you find a good deal.

I plan on having a huge one at Casa Rio. The DSs have already had Spring Break. This is just a 3 day weekend since we didn't use any bad weather days this year. Since San Antonio is only 4 1/2 hours away, we'll leave as soon as I get home from class Thursday night. Then we'll sleep in on Friday before getting up to eat lunch at Casa Rio and explore the Riverwalk and Alamo. Saturday is our Sea World day and we'll drive home on Sunday with a stop in New Braunfels for some German food.

We have to take the whole family time. Which is Me, Mom, Dad and my brother Chris. We need a lot of space because Chris is like 15 and takes about have the room and then hits his head on the ceiling. We start talking about going into the final frontier, Disney Vacation Club. Not sharing but staying there. We decide on a 2 bedroom villa Congress Park Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa. But Mom likes to weigh options.

Using Magical Vacations she adds to the running either Yacht Club or Grand Floridian. I choose GF because I like it better. It's prettier and has better rooms IN MY OPINION. Not a troll. But since I saw on Tikiman's facebook page the Poly Hawaii refurbishment we simply have to see what it looks like in person. So add Poly CL to the race!

But since DD is coming along we decide it might be fun to plan a surprise Split stay at Port Orleans and maybe deluxe Beach Club CL. After we through that into the game we decide maybe Poly CL instead of Beach Club! Now its one big race. I have no idea who is winning.

Final plan I hope: August 8-21 first 3 nights at Port Orleans Riverside then the rest at Poly CL.
Hopefully, you'll get the mix of resort you want.

Thank you. I can't wait to go!! When it didn't look like the money would be here in time for us to go this next weekend, I asked the DH if he just wanted to move it to the beginning of June. Even after the money got here, I asked if he wanted to do that so it would be warm enough to go to the waterpark in Sea World. He didn't want to do that. He needs to get away from his parents for a few days. Living with them is hard enough on me, but he does that plus work for them. Plus he felt like that would put it too close to our September trip and he wanted to space the two trips out a bit. Which reminds me, I don't think we've told the inlaws that he needs the time off in September and the trip is 100% paid off.

omg, that is craziness!! I can't go without internet. I just don't know how I did it, growing up without it. I know I spent a heck of a lot more time outside.

If Tokelau is refurbed by then, that's what I'd request. Loved Tokelau. And all floors have balconies, or patio.

Well, now that my August trip is all booked, I have been playing with airfares for our Jan 2014 trip. Found a really good one RT from Seattle for $318 incl tax. So I booked it, doesn't get better then that. And good flight times. Coming down on United with an hour layover in Houston, & non stop return on Alaska.

No idea yet which resort I'll be staying at yet! POR, pofq, WL, AKL, BC, YC all possibilities

Jeanette: Sooo close to your trip now! You need a break I bet. I am crunching numbers feverishly to get an idea of how much a 3 night mini trip for DH and I would cost the last week of August. I told him yesterday what I was thinking and he just said go ahead and plan. I don't think he believes in my plans anymore.....I have changed my mind too many times now.

Hope you are not working yourself too hard.

Happy Monday all!!

Jen

And just where are you booked? I thought it was the Honeymoon room at WL? Is that no more??? Do tell!

sis I'm just hoping it goes quickly. They tend to drag their feet, especially when they know they still have to payout. I am thinking you are still at WL? Maybe you are going to have a GRAND weekend?


I am going nuts for this new client I picked up over the weekend. It's two friends and their children. One friend is over the moon excited, very receptive to anything I say. Always responds to emails and questions. The other friend? I emailed her for their info on Friday...still waiting for her response. Who doesn't get excited to go to Disney?!


We are 67 days out from our trip! I went to Target over the weekend and picked up another $400 in gift cards and only paid $375! Love that 5% discount!

Of course you'll change from CSR (if you didn't just now). I see GF in your future...

Twenty Poundaroonies is amazing, Jeanette. That's like a pound off for every change you've made to this trip

Yes, Atrium Club in July, well, DH doesn't think I'll keep it. Just hours after booking yesterday I was second guessing my choice. Tried to book BLT or GV Poly/CL, but they weren't available with our discount, so on my list were CR with and w/o CL and both were available. I figured you can't go wrong with CL, but then I remembered how unimpressed I was with their CL back in 2010. Then DH asked how I could go to WDW without staying at WL. Why did he have to ask me that? So then I wondered, too how I could do that and wondered if I should book a VWL one bedroom. I've posted my query to the WL thread and hopefully someone will help me, but I think they'd all be enablers

Thanks for checking in with us and I hope work and school are going well for you

Ok I need advice from y'all again. I thought our trip was paid off. It said so after I paid it on line, or so I thought. It still hasn't taken the money out of our bank and it now shows a balance. Should I call Disney and pay over the phone?

Hope you are not working yourself too hard.

And just where are you booked? I thought it was the Honeymoon room at WL? Is that no more??? Do tell!
I'm at CSR Business Class...again

DH is the same way with me..I hope you can do August!!! You and DH need some alone time!

I am going nuts for this new client I picked up over the weekend. It's two friends and their children. One friend is over the moon excited, very receptive to anything I say. Always responds to emails and questions. The other friend? I emailed her for their info on Friday...still waiting for her response. Who doesn't get excited to go to Disney?!
I don't know how you do the TA thing sis...especially with people who are undecided

Yay for67 days I DID look at the Grand..but we are going in August I can't do that to hubs

Oh no!!! So CR vs. VWL..holding out possibly for Poly CL or a BLT opening All good good good. The CR CL rooms will be refurb..or is it only 14th floor...I've been off the boards too long. School I go a 60 on a paper...NOT HAPPY..which gives me a 80 in one class 94 in the other. The mean grade for the class on the paper was 70...says something for the Professor...just sayin. Trying to be positive about it. Had a minibreakdown Friday afternoon..I was sooooo tired. Worked pretty much 50 hrs straight No good. I was able to take off Saturday night at least Thinking of switching back to WL...but I'll probably save the $$ to pay off August

The eating well is great, except I've been cheating a little..but I haven't gained...just haven't lost anymore. All good..I've needed my occasional snack

Back at CSR? Lol. We'll see if it sticks this time! :-) aren't you going soon?

AND an August trip? I think I missed some things...

I need to get back to working out so I an lose this weight. I still have like 40 lbs to go to get to where I'd like to be for our August trip...10 lbs a month...possible? Hmm...

Snow day today for both kids. Even daycare was closed today. 17" we got - officially!

Hope everyone has a good Monday!!
