OMG........:furiou s::fu rious:

insert Donald Duck style rant because all of the words I want to use are non-DIS appropriate.

So, I was checking the checking account because I was paranoid since "Disney never took the money out when I paid it online" and I was afraid I hadn't waited long enough and then made the payment on the phone with them and then they tried to take it out of my account (from the online payment) after they took it our with the payment I made over the phone and the account was negative. Well the money was back in my account, and it didn't show any signs of the payments having been made.

I called the bank and instead of calling me (or emailing) to make sure it wasn't a fraudulent charge (since we usually never have charges that big on our account) they just denied to charge and never let me know about it.

Hopefully the third time will be the charm on getting this trip paid off.

On a good note....
I was going to get new contacts before our trip, because I am on my last pair. Well my prescription is over a year old and I have to get a new one. They can't see me until Monday. Oh, but wait (this is the good part) I've been coming to them for so long, they are going to give me a trial pair to get me through until I can come in.


ETA...
I'm on hold with Disney and they still show me with a balance of $0 and that the payment went through.

Good luck with all that mess! Craziness!! And good to hear about the contacts! I need to get some new ones too...but they don't usually carry my strength...especially in the eye that has an astigmatism as well. Ggrrr...

Disney is so wierd with their payment processing. I always notice that when I make a payment (using our debit card), Disney will put the charge into pending on our account right away for the amount paid, and then the next day it's not there anymore. They usually come back a few days later and take the money out. I don't get it.

Hi RC Friends,
The last few days have been crazy. I am still back reading, but in the meantime I'm trying to tie up tons of loose ends here.
We have a couple of trips coming, booking airfare,hotels, and Ugh...rental cars...travel planning isn't the easiest these days.

Add in that hub wanted me to book some on miles. Ok, happy to do that, but then I discovered somehow he had two accounts and was locked out of both of them. : So, he got the fun job of calling and getting it all straightened out. Back to the drawing board, start over...It's the story of my life, I tell ya.

Had to get the dining in, IPO is ready for tomorrow. Check.
I think I've got most of the stuff on my endless to do lists done..for the moment. I am taking a break and enjoying a special treat, a nice Hopmouth. It's a very nice quite hoppy local IPA.

Missout--Oh dear, you took quite a spill. Glad you are healing. This winter has to go. Sending you some beach weather! Hope you get good news on furlough.

Janet--I always like Wed, Friday is in sight!

MM--You guys make the cutest shirts. Such fun!

Jen--Noticed your ticker today, not long!

Pas--Congrats on your weight loss! Make sure you're getting some rest, k?

Kook-I love that you booked in honor of federal ineptitude. We can't do anything about it, so being positive and planning is a good thing.

GG-Hope all goes well with the taxes. So annoying.

Koh--Looks like you're pondering a change. Will stay tuned!

Wookie--You've been so patient through all the waiting. Hope all is straightened out soon.

Melissa--Glad you're on spring break. Enjoy!

Dani
--Sorry you are going through frustrations. Keep thinking your happy vacation thoughts. You'll be there soon!

Waving hi to Koh, Lacey, Marie, sjs314, SueM, Petey, Magic, Luv and other friends I missed.

Thank you. I am really lucky when it comes to my contacts. I don't have an astigmatism and I use the same exact contact for each eye, so I can get away with just buying one box at a time.

Sounds like you need a stiff drink as much as I do. Actually, I made the DH one as soon as he got home. He had a terrible day at work. He didn't get home until almost 8 and then he worked on stuff for at least another 2 hours. I took one of the orange pineapple juices I bought at school (it's my favorite one and I have only found it at my school) and added some Crown Royal Black to it for him.

I just hope they take it out soon. I hate thinking we have more money in there than we do.

Thank you, me too. I keep telling myself it will all be worth it as I'm going round and round in the lazy river at SAB.

Well, I still have 1 1/2 labs to get done, but I did get through a mountain of laundry today. Our luggage arrived in Denton (which is the town we usually go to see movies in, so it's close). Maybe it'll get here before I have to leave for school, so we can use that luggage. I am going to try and go in early (like between 3 and 4 for a class that starts at 6) to talk to the professor and get a little more help. Then by this time tomorrow, we'll be nearly half way to San Antonio. I have a feeling tomorrow is going to be one of the longest days EVER!!

I guess we should have known better. When we went to WDW this past June, we added a couple of days to our trip while we were there. We were supposed to have gone to Cocoa Beach, but the rain was supposed to continue. We figured we could do more at WDW in the rain than at Cocoa Beach. Everything else we paid for while at WDW came out of our checking account right away. When the charge for the extra night didn't, we thought, "woo hoo, we got pixie dust and didn't charge us." The money for the extra night didn't come out until several days later, after we were home, so probably at least four days.

Well today is looking to be a good one that is flying by. I have our last load of laundry in the dryer. As soon as it's done, I'm going to pack, which shouldn't take but a few minutes. Then I'll do some last minute cleaning of our room and bathroom before taking a shower. We I get out of the shower, I'll work on a lab for C#. On the way to school, I'll stop by Wal Mart to pick up the trial pair of contacts and get a couple of things. I'll grab something to eat on the way to school, and hopefully the time will fly. I am so ready to leave today. I wish I didn't have to go to school. Maybe I can leave early.

Wookie: Hope the day goes by fast for you!

Pas: Have a good Saturday off, and I hope your Easter Bunny gets everything he needs, ours made a last minute run to Walmart yesterday! Kind of feel sorry for my DD6 though, she has a sensitivity to chocolate, and has had Nutella the past couple of breakfasts. Her bottom has flared up with eczema, and I told her she may not get to eat a lot of the chocolate eggs that the Easter Bunny leaves. Good thing I got some play doh eggs, and gumball ones too.

Ginny: It sounds like you are doing a lot of work to get ready for your trips...good job! Hopmouth eh???

Linda: I hope your taxes didn't turn out too shocking. I am right there with you. YUCK!!

Miss: Glad to hear your stitches came out ok, and you are feeling better. Poor thing....

Well, nothing too new to report over here. Was visiting with my parents this morning and my Mom made a comment that I am too "addicted" to vacation planning. What.... Of course I am but she didn't have to point it out like it was a bad thing!! Whatever, there are worse things to be addicted to.

They really don't travel anywhere, due to my father not wanting too, and my mother's bowel problems. Her problems are actually getting worse, and almost everytime she goes out there is a small accident. I really feel for her, and have been trying to talk her into Depends, at least it would help her a little bit if she can't make it to the washroom. And my dad well, I am worried there too. Apparently he has been losing copious amounts of money at the casino, and they are on a very fixed income. Not good. All my life he was so frugal and sooo good with money.

I did finally tell him I am concerned about it, and maybe he should go talk to someone about it. I really hope he does. My mom is a wreck over it.
Sorry rant over. Thanks for listening.

Waving hi and thinking of everyone.

Jen

HEY RCers! DH and I were driving past WDW last Saturday on our way back from the East coast when we decided to stop by DtD and trade our paper APs for our shiny new Plastic APs. DH picked Mickey and I am Donald. We then boated over to POR to spend an hour with Piano Bob and boated back to DtD for a late snack of Holiday sandwich at Earl (I am so glad they made it a year round indulgence) before heading on home.

And while I have a moment... HAPPY GOOD FRIDAY to some and HAPPY EASTER to all.

_______________________________

sjs314: So happy you booked. Miss Poly will treat you and Bob very well.

WDWKOOK: Atrium rocks! CR rocks! Glad you planned. I usually rely on the same AllEars and TA, too, so I am quite curious myself how our KKC experience will be. And I hope the rooms new designs "feel" better in person. I will look at it from a more critical eye, but I know Mom will be rockin' either way. She's been on a good upswing with her depression lately, so DH already has her going on BTM Railroad... verbally anyway.

pas130: Dancing for you all around... losing 20 lbs, being a good school girl and vacation!!!!

disneydreamin247: Audit go ok? Maybe a transfer is in your future. In the meantime, think Hawaii Building. oh BTW, remind me how the Target 5% dealio works again, please.

janetB: The double shirt ditch caper was great!!!!! And you only think your EVADE was clever. It was BLATANT from where I chill!!! So I will keep early Nov time open to pop over and visit and DISmeet. Let me know where you book. My AP is ready and waiting for adventures. Hey, idea time... maybe I will book a BB in April for then.

chimo2u: So glad you are getting this family time with both parents and you kids. Ahhh, so fleeting is our time together.

Mousemommy: Dis your raise come thru, I may have missed it. Congrats! Your shirts for the family are really neat-o. Love 'em.

jennyjinx: Love your girls' Easter pic. Wish you were on bunny's lap, too. And re: your dad. He sounds depressed. Best wishes for your parents.

Wookie: Enjoy SAN AN!!!!!! About the phone # change with WDW: My old home phone number still shows up online only after over 3 years and NUMEROUS Disney CMs and IT folks telling me they found the "reason" and have fixed it. But verbally with CMs, they see only my correct phone number. I've quit trying at this point.

GrumpyGrandma:
AKV yay for you! I do love the pool are. Do you usually stay poolside?

Gwynne: Travel planning stress is the BEST kind!

Babyberger: Glad you are back with a lighter workload. I am coming off a BIG workload for a few days lull here myself. Maybe a FL res DISmeet is in order some day.

koh1977: So Poly won out???? Yay for you.

Miss: Is "face plant" an acceptable term here? I've wanted to use it in a sentence before it fades into oblivion with the rest of the oh-so not-so-clever annoying lingo of life nawadays. Seriously, I hope you are feeling MUCH better now. As for RCing, I am glad you kept with CR GW. I think you will be pleased.

peteykirch: Welcome!!! WL & Poly are big faves with me. Heck, who am I kidding...they all are.

Hi to all the RCers I've missed, Luv, Lulu's Mom, basketlacey, DetTigsGal, PigletsMommy, and SueM

Going to catch up before the afternoon/evening gets hectic.

MAGIC - I am jealous, I want to make a trip just to trade in my paper AP's too! I don't think it is going to happen before they expire in Sept though I am gong to PM you in a bit

Jen - Oh no, poor DD I hope her little bum heals quickly and she can enjoy some of that easter chocolate. Sorry you are having such a hard time with your parents, I know it can be beyond frustrating sometimes. But you are doing all you can do by voicing your concerns for both of them. Oh and you are right, I think there are A LOT worse things you could be addicted to than vacation planning...she is out of her mind to think that is a bad thing!!! I got your back on this one

Wookie - so glad the day is flying by and you got your luggage!!! Have a great time this weekend

Jeanette - um, your trip is coming up soon, is this going to be one of those that you are changing on your way to the resort Sorry the ER is getting toxic, I wish people would just be human and respect each other, why is it so hard???

Ginny - glad you took a little break yesterday to enjoy your beer Hopefully all the travel planning is falling into place.

Linda - I was so happy to finally be done with tax stuff this week and send it off to the accountant, although it just means I am closer to knowing just how much I owe

Miss - I hope you can start that AP talk again soon!! I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Dani - I am sorry work is so bad right now I will pray for you that the transfers include the, well, insert not nice words here Bad management ruins a whole company!

Candace - love the pixie dusted shirts

Janet - yes, I am slowly starting to put me back into the priority list Once the kids go back to school next week, I am going to try heading back to the gym and see how that goes, also adding more "me time" into my days

Koh1977 - I also agree with the 2 autograph books, I think it is the best way to go.

HELLO to everyone else Hope everyone is having a great day!


Melissa

You really need a vacation flowchart in your signature. For everyone's sanity, including yours.

Sorry rant over. Thanks for listening.

Waving hi and thinking of everyone.

Jen
You are preaching to the choir here! There are SO many much-worse things to be addicted to.

Oh Jen. If it's not the kiddos keeping us on our toes, it's our parents. To commiserate with you, my mother just up and bought a Kindle Fire (which she can't use because they don't have a wifi internet connection in their house), some make-up off of a spam email she received and an e-cigarette which she won't use. I hope your dad can get himself sorted out... or at least talk to someone who can help.

Oh, you temptress you! EoS is offering the Holiday Sandwich all year now? GG mentioned it before and I never got to try it during our January trip. Now I've got no excuse.

Holding strong with CR-GW, you and Melissa have swayed me to keep it. (I swear, that SAB-love is so strong though. )

Yep, faceplant, sidewalk-eating or pavement-fight -- they all work.

What gourmet baked goodies have you been creating lately?

You know, I still have yet to use that info you sent. Is it still the same? My curiosity is super-piqued at the moment. Hubbo and I chit-chatted this morning about buying tickets from UT and upgrading at the gate with the price-bridge vs. buying the AP voucher direct from Disney. I don't see there being a big difference other than the dough you save from UT -- unless, of course, Disney decides to stop price-bridging. I gotta strike while the iron's hot... he actually said, "What exactly are you waiting for?" I don't know really.

Do you get your TiW there at the gate?

Wookie: Yay for your luggage... and no more laundry. We anxiously await food porn.

Linda: Have you survived tax-doing?

I_Heart: Thinking of you...

I know I've missed a lot so I'll just hand these out...

All of you November ladies, you need to make sure you include the end of October in your planning. Like say, from the 27th - 30th.

Hmm...so...just wondering...are there any pros to staying at the CR (GW) vs the Poly? It's a tad bit cheaper to get a garden view room there than it is at the Poly so I'm just weighing my options since DH already approved the Poly stay. :-) I'm definitely spoiled by the deluxes...

Yes, info is all the same Keep in mind that WDW usually raises ticket prices in June and it is usually without a lot of notice, last year we got wind of the increase and had less than 12 hours to react, and since they were getting rid of children's pricing on the FL AP's, it was a big one!

As for baked goods, did you see my cinnamon roll on FB? It may have only posted over to my Cooking and Chaos page, but I was VERY proud of it

I haven't stayed at Poly so I can't really give you an unbiased opinion. But....I can say we have absolutely loved our past 2 stays at CR. We even walked through Poly in December to give the kiddos a change to change their minds for Feb, and they did like the way it looked, but still wanted CR again. I think the walk to MK is awesome, especially during busy times. I don't know that CR is better than Poly, but it's different.
