I need to start working on the kids' autograph book now...I saw on one of the threads where they did a Shutterfly or Snapfish photo book of pics with different characters (one per page and leaving white space for that character's autograph). Then they left some pages in the back blank (with washed out generic Disney photos) for characters to sign that they hadn't seen before. It was really nice looking! Now the only question is...do I make one for both DS6 and DD2 to share? Or do they have their own?

Maybe since your little one is only 2 they could share this one? . Although I don't know her temperament. My youngest at that age definitely knew when she didn't have something her sisters had.

So, if it is going to cause friction....get two! nice idea though, I just discovered shutterfly!

I'm thinking 2 because DH and I talked about splitting up sometimes while we're there. And her book could be smaller since she's only been there once before, and she could hold it and give it to the characters then. She might like that. :-)

Janet - That is was the best laugh I have had today! Totally got the visual of you standing there in the middle of a store in your cami! Okay, so beginning of Nov, I am putting it on my calendar. If we renew our passes (a big if right now) I will be sure that is the first weekend I book
Melissa, it was really funny after the initial shock!! Oh, hope you will be renewing your APs!

And Melissa, just make your resolve to start working on improving yourself... just take it one day at a time.

Linda, with me you will have no problem getting a second opportunity!

Hope to book the first week of my trip tomorrow .... Oct 27th - Nov 2nd or 3rd. I think I've decided to book OKW for that week to save points. Not sure what I'll book for the following week .... probably AKV Jambo if I can get it!

Now if DS would just set the date for his fall wedding I could figure out for sure if I can even make this trip!!!!
Linda, were you able to get your dates? Oh hope you can come in November!! Tell DS he is putting a crimp in your travel plans.

And I say 2 autographs books!

Hey guys. I am desperately wanting this next 65 days to fly by. We got a new assistant manager and supervisor about a month ago and I can't stand them. I almost walked out of my job yesterday. My friend who works opposite days has the same problem. She almost left on Friday. They are insufferable. I hear there are a bunch of transfers coming soon. Hoping I may be one of them.

Is there anyone you can talk to about making sure you are one of the transfers?

It may be 166 days until we check into the BC, but we'll be in San Antonio in less than 48 hours!! I just have a mountain of laundry to get washed and put away, a bathroom to be made spotless, bags to pack, and two programs to write (one of which is already half way done) all while not spilling the beans about the trip. I think I'm going later to Wal Mart and buy me some new contacts, and The Hobbit on DVD for the DSs to watch on the drive there.

Helloooooooo ladies!

No more spiders hanging out on my chin. My battle scars are fading quite quickly.

Janet: You had me dying laughing with that story. Thank the heavens for cami tops! We need to make sure we have extra RCers present when we meet up to protect us from ourselves. (Or, like Linda said, to take pictures. )

Kook: Have you changed already? Re: the budget junk. I hope you get good news when the 10 days has past. My hub's lab falls under the DoE. They were notified yesterday that the directors have put forth a proposal to reallocate funds from their current projects (which needs high-level DoE approval) to prevent any furloughs from happening. Supposed to take a couple months before they hear whether the funds can be moved around. As it sounds not as "doom and gloom" as originally rumored, the APs are going to be discussed soon.

MM: Wa-HOOOOOOO on those shirts! Excellent job. You're getting so close now.

Pas: on the 20+ lbs down. I'm with Jen, I don't know WHERE you're staying now and when.

Sheila: Yay for booking! (I think I was MIA when you booked.)

Dani: Sorry about the work stuff. Ugh. You'd JUST got yourself out of one horrible location last summer, right? Hoping you'll get a transfer.

Wookie: Yay for mini-vacations. Please make sure to share reviews of all of the delicious food you enjoy.

Petey: I'm really late but ... welcome!

Linda: Anxiously await the ever-expanding dates for your trip(s)

Jen, Melissa, Koh and all the rest of you bodacious ladies...
