Hello lovelies!

I keep forgetting that I don't have some of you on Facebook. Hence my temporary absence will now be explained! On the afternoon of my last post -- where I was feeling pretty bad about kiddo's meltdown before school -- I got a call from our credit card company later that morning saying that the account was compromised and we'd have to get new cards. Thankfully, Visa caught it and no charges made it through to the account. The day got even more exciting when I thought it would be a good idea to taste the sidewalk on the way to pick the kiddo up from her after-school activity. Let me just tell you, breaking a fall with your face gives you INSTANT Walking Dead-like make-up; although, I decided against going up to the front doors and scaring the living bejeebus out of the kids. Going tonight to get the stitches out of my chin (I managed to pierce through my lip into my chin with my tooth, but miraculously, no chipped / damaged teeth.) Kiddo joked about seeing my splat -- and bending down to kiss it -- on her way to school for the remainder of last week. Now every time those Life Alert commercials come on, hubs looks at me with a smirk.

Anyway, that was my exciting bit of last week. Now it's Spring Break!

I've been collecting my Disney Gift Certificates from Target, too. 5% off is good stuff!

Still not decided on the APs yet because we've still not go word what will happen at hub's work with regard to furloughs, etc. Still booked at CR- Garden Wing.

Miss you ladies!

Thank you for updating the Facebook-less. So sorry about your fall and compromised card. Seems we've probably all been through both, and neither is desirable. Was there ice? Glad you didn't hurt your typing fingers and are back in business

DH's furlough notice was also postponed 2 weeks so in honor of federal ineptitude, I booked a summer vacation yesterday, but, I already posted about all that so I won't rehash. I hope your DH gets some resolution soon, but if he's under DoD, it will be another 10 days or so.

I'm glad you didn't have any damage to your teeth. That could have been a costly fix.

That's what I wanted to do, but the DH insisted I call Disney first. The lady I talked to said it showed a $0 balance, but that we hadn't had a payment since the initial $200 deposit, which she thought was odd. In My Disney Experience it still showed that we owed the full $2, 950.40. At least I think that's what she said. I'm not working on a ton of sleep, so I'm easily confused. Anyway, I gave her the cc info. I checked it as soon as I got off the phone, and it has finally been taken out of the account.

Another Disney question, and wondering if I'm being paranoid and just being OCD over picky. When I look at our ADRs in My Disney Experience, it has our old phone number listed. I never put that number into MDE. Every CM I've talked to, I've asked to remove that number and I thought they had all said they would. Well I checked my profile in MDE today and it had that number listed as a work number. Even if I had entered it, I would have put it as a home number, since it was a land-line home number and not a work number. Is there a way I can change that number, or do I have to call and yet again ask a CM to do it for me?

I may take a nap and go in early tomorrow. I finally fell asleep sometime between 4:37 and 5 AM. Then I was up at 7 to get kids ready for school. I couldn't take a nap today because I had to get the oil changed in the minivan and I was meeting a high school bestie for lunch in our hometown (about 45 minutes away). I think I'll lean back and pass out until I have to cook dinner.

Thanks ladies.

Pas: Is Portofino your favorite of the 3 there? I need to go check out that board. I'm sure there's a Pros and Cons post every other day comparing those hotels.

Kook: So, is there a change in the works already?! DoE for my hubs. They don't seem to know what's going on; there was supposed to be some word at the end of the month but nothing yet. (My hand was in a splint for the first day and a half until I got tired of it and ripped it off. Typing -- and moving the ol' digits -- were more therapeutic than the splint itself. I wish I could say there was ice; they asked me if I had been drinking. I was going at slightly-less than a jog... so fast enough to do some damage. )

Wookie: Is it just that it hasn't posted to Disney yet? Our September vacation from two years ago, I had called to pay off the remainder and it took about 4-5 days to show it posting to my credit card.

So DH got numbers for raise and bonus today...got me thinking and now I'm wondering if we should see about trying CR...? I know it'd be a splurge, but it's so convenient! (and cheaper than the Poly)

Uh oh...change in the works?

Hello RC family! I am sorry I have been MIA for so long! School, website, dr's appts, etc, didn't allow for any DIS time But it is spring break, my website is mostly done, no dr's appts, tax stuff ready for the acct, and NO STEVEN SCHOOL STRESS

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.
I thought of you last night!!! We were watching a special about water parks and one was in San Antonio! I wonder if it was the one you were going to go to.
