Been lurking a bit..at karate now with kiddos, then home to feed them and start the beautifying process

KOOK - sounds like you made the right decision, sorry you have to POSTPONE, but WDW isn't going anywhere. Better to go with a clear head and enjoy

Jen - sounds like you have a lot to sort through, if I find a money tree, I'll let you know for sure!!!! I have not seen any updates from Marie on FB at all, making me worry a bit.

Janet - I have no trip planned to report to you my AP's are good until Sep, so you never know

Jeanette - I can't wait to hear a out CSR BC (if you actually stay there). I chuckled with the Janet needing Diet Coke comment, she and I had the Diet Coke conversation when we met up, no Diet Pepsi for her (or me for that matter) LOL! I am pretty sure you will still have your job even after taking the two days off, isn't there still a shortage of nurses???

Virginia - welcome and congrats on DVC! DH won't even entertain DVC

Got to run!

Possibility #1 - 8/4-8/10 CSR. Not booked yet though, so more than enough time to change dates and resorts between now and then!

Booked Beach Club Villas only to read icky reviews about the rooms, so immediately cancelled and rebooked at the Poly for 10/20-10/27.

Lord knows if we'll make it!
Six weeks is waaaaay too long for everyone to be sick. UGH. October's weather will be great and I've read those same reviews about BCV - you made a great change to Poly and all the longhouses should be rehabbed by then, right?

The financially responsible me says it will be better to save up and possibly do a longer cruise another year to get more value out of it. We will just be unpacking, and then having to pack up.
The longer the cruise, the cheaper the daily rate. You just need to book a longer cruise to save some $. I prefer longer cruises because it takes us a few days just to get used to the motion and routine. My vote is to save-up and plan on a longer cruise.

Jen, part of my not being able to catch up here is my heart wasn't in it. I want to go to WDW, heck I want to stay at Poly...my wallet says not now...but all in all, trip or no trip, my family and all their love and support is here.....2013 is turning to be a very uncertain year for us as well..one awesome RC quality is to modify plans...in all aspects of life. We're here for you Jen...as often as you need us
I understand what you're feeling about posting when you have so many distractions and changes going on. Though it can be threapeutic for you, sometimes you should just take a break from it and do it when the mood strikes. We're all here to help with everyone's changes (and cancelations) - we've got your back

If it was just a postponement then why did WDTC torture me for 15 minutes on-hold playing my favorite Test Track/Epcot music just so I could cancel a booking? Then I had to call SOG and cancel the overflow FWC booking. Then I had to cancel all my ADRs and Hampton Inn on the way down. I don't think I postponed much today. But I'm actually not in a cancelation funk - all is well, my sweet.

So glad DD isn't having migraines today, poor thing. They HAVE to give you two days off!!

My typical disney reservations go like this. We decide before we go on our next trip when we want to return, so that if there is a good BB, we can book. If there isn't then i usually book at regular rates a week or two when we get back at the least amount on-site hotel. And then if there is a discount, I change it and have it applied or change it to upgrade room and have it applied. If there is Free Dining, I change it again. And finally if there is an AP rate I change it again...

So we just bought DVC and booked our trips for May and November using points, but then when we were looking for somewhere to go for Spring Break about 2 months ago, we ended at you guessed it, disney. We booked POR at the rack, then upgraded to POR Royal Room, then added the spring discount, then added the AP discount. Now we are a month away and I'm trying to decided if we sound rent points and stay at AKL. IT'S A DISEASE! Help me!

Thanks for reading

Nail hit on head, Linda. My shoulders are lighter and I actually feel much better about all this uncertainty. I'd love some new Deluxe Room photos since yours may have been rehabbed. Everyone loves new resort photos! Thanks.

Hubs forwarded the lab-wide email from the director about the sequestration. Nothing will happen until they hear about the final budget (by 27th March at the latest); nothing needs to happen until then due to the layoffs and budget cuts which occurred last year. Ah well, so no extra time off for him ... yet. (I won't call it a pay cut because I'm trying to see the silver lining. ) Lots of his co-workers complained about how the lab was closed during the last sequestration so they couldn't come in to work. Nerds. I tell ya.
Big hug right back. Never heard of Institute Day, do tell.

When you mentioned the lab it made me think of a National Lab like Argonne. DH isn't in physics is he? My dad worked there when I was a pre-schooler.

Sweatshirts, Parks, mini golf, monorails, and tasty ADRs (Raglan Road, Crystal Palace and Shula's) will be our plans.
Happy Anniversary!! I can't remember if you said or not, but how many is it?
Happy Birthday to your DH!!

Since we've already had one great pasrific change with Jeanette moving over to a CSR BC room after a long WDTC hold, but with probably great WDW music... (DO NOT CHANGE THIS - we all want to hear your impressions), I thought we needed a cancelation!

I made the decision yesterday to cancel spring break later today and it's all good (as Jeanette famously proclaims). It wasn't a monetary decision so I don't want anyone to feel sorry for us - that's not my intention. The decision was based primarily on too much stress from sequestration looming. We would have been returning home one day before the furloughing is tentatively due to start. There's no way that wouldn't have been on our minds during vacation. When I told DD and DH at dinner, DH smiled and was actually relieved and happy and DD said, "I'm fine with that, I know we'll be going back." I knew she didn't want to miss 2 days of school so she was relieved, too.

I love a bargain, so I have to admit that the additional overcharge at spring break does bother me. The rooms end up about 40% higher during holidays and that never settles well with me. We also can't stay as long at spring break, so perhaps our annual summer trip will work perfectly and hopefully there will be less uncertainty in the US then - or maybe a lot more! I was excited about the FWC stay and using those APs up to the last possible day, but we did get over 30 days of use out of them and this change of plans may mean that great BLT one bedroom will be available then

I'll be back later to multi-quote, but I hope Marie's DH is recovering well and I hope that Linda/MAGIC will report back to us (and the CR thread) about her anniversary trip.
I'm sorry you had to cancel, but your reasoning make sense.

Happy birthday to all those, who just had them, are about to have them, or family members are having them. My DH's birthday is coming up on the 12th and I can't wait for it!! Between my birthday on January 10th and his on March 12th, I am a year older than him. I am ready for the old lady jokes to end.

I'm glad she is feeling better, and is back to 100%.

A humble for the continuation of your reign as the RC Queen.

If it were a disease, it would be something we need to be cured of though. I like to think of it more as a resort changing hobby.

Yep, all of the final exams (and midterms) have a 3 1/2 time limit. I probably did it in about 2 though. There were 3 essays and about 30 multiple choice.

I can't wait to see the new Oz movie. I don't know if y'all follow her blog, but Amy at The Relocated Tourist, got to see an early showing of it. I really want to see it now. I finally read the Wizard of Oz book and I can't wait to see the land of the porcelain people. It was my favorite part of the book, even if it was a small part of it.

It just shows they are doing something they really love. I know I would complain if I were doing a computer programming job and I had to miss work for something like that. So far, it was the only class where I did not want to miss a single class.

So....I need to find a way to make some more money!!

I hope you are able to make it work. I would love to take a trip to Boston. At first, I was really sad about the thought of not getting back to WDW for a while. Then I realized I was looking at it all wrong. It's not about missing WDW, it's about finally getting around to seeing a lot of other places we have missed seeing since I always want to go to WDW. The only problem is that list is really, really long.

Yeah I feel the same way about that movie. Gene Wilder will always be the one and true Willy Wonka. For some reason that made me think of the Highlander movies and I got an image in my head of Gene Wilder, dressed as Willy Wonka, holding a Japanese sword in one hand and the decapitated head of Johnny Depp, who was also dressed as Willy Wonka, in the other yelling "There can be only one!!" .....don't think I need to wonder where JM gets his imagination Well and I'm still not happy with Johnny Depp about Dark Shadows. I know it's partially my own fault for getting my hopes up, especially once I heard Tim Burton was involved. Plus after hearing JD saying he was not making a "spoof", which is exactly what it looks like. I wanted it like the series, all dark and gloomy, not.....well not what it was.

Nothing new to report here. After a night of practically no sleep, I tried to sleep in, but Joey kept sending me texts. Needless to say, he got a lot of all caps texts back from me. I've been looking over the records I have been keeping and his blood sugar seems to stay in the 80's. Except at night before bed time, when he's eaten a ton and had sweets. Then the highest it has been was 104. Still no tax return. I finally told the mil that if the money doesn't come soon, we'll have to cancel the March trip and move it to May. Hopefully we won't have to. I know it will be warmer in May, but it will be busier in San Antonio over Memorial Day weekend as well.

My internet con has been up and down all afternoon. Hrmph. Think it might be trying to tell me something.

Christine: Thanks for sharing a pic of our lovely GG! She really needs a suitable moniker -- "grumpy" just isn't fitting.

Kookster: I don't have the foggiest idea what an Institute Day is, though I think the teachers are having meetings. I can't keep up with all these days off.

Daughter of a nerd, you are? (Read that in a Yoda-like voice. ) Argonne! Small world. Hubs had a post doc there for a few years before we moved overseas; he's now at Fermi down the road.

Wookie: Hope the thumbs are pulled out at the IRS soon so you can get your refund. I love your Gene Wilder Highlander vision. I've not seen Dark Shadows -- I assume it was a total flop? Have you seen Frankenweenie yet? I usually adore all things Burton.

Koh1977 & Wookie: I just cringe every other scene in the Depp version.

Hey girls. I just wanted to drop a quick line to let you know I'm dropping off the DIS for awhile to take care of some personal stuff. Nothing too major, just stuff that needs to be dealt with without distraction.

Love and hugs to all. Will be back as soon as I can

Wife of a nerd, you are. Dinner parties must be interesting!

All you had to post was LAB and knowing you're in the Chicagoland area, those childhood memories came flooding back. My dad was first at Fermilab, then ANL (I was born in Chicago), then on to IU - guess where?

Love and hugs to all. Will be back as soon as I can
Love back at ya, I_Heart. Totally understand the need to "disconnect" and I'm sorry you're dealing with rough stuff at the moment. You know we'll be around when you get things sorted. In the meantime, positive thoughts your way and always.

All you had to post was LAB and knowing you're in the Chicagoland area, those childhood memories came flooding back. My dad was first at Fermilab, then ANL (I was born in Chicago), then on to IU - guess where?
Would that be good ol' Urbana-Champaign?

about the dinner parties. Oh, the funny stories I could tell about THOSE dinner parties. Hubs can say the words "worst evening ever" to me and we both know exactly who and what that refers to -- a physicist gathering (or "nerd shindig" as I like to call them). Usually they're not too bad but we've had some doozies.
