Hello ladies! Kiddo has a half-day so I need to get my slacking off in earlier than usual. I've watched my Benedict Cumberbatch videos, paid some bills and had my coffee. (I have to watch the Cumberbatch stuff in peace and quiet, because when the hubs is home, all I hear are snide remarks. )

~~----------------------~~

Hannah: Oh, make sure you keep us all up-to-date on the planning. His first trip, too? SWEET!

Hopefully a deal comes through that will make that not happen.

I know how you feel though. I want to be sooooo excited about our August reservations but it is hard. Even though DH is working and getting paid (and supposedly guaranteed by law to be paid), I feel like there is still uncertainty. It sucks!

Thanks, ladies. Today's supposedly the day. Just watching the news. You know? They should've locked them all in Capitol chambers weeks ago until they reached an agreement.

Eek! Hoping we can avoid the pulling situation. (She was given "homework" by the dentist -- to wiggle her tooth. She still doesn't want my help. )

Oh NO! I hope something helps and soon. I pulled a muscle in my ribs from coughing -- I didn't even KNOW there were muscles IN there -- when I was pregnant. My back and front hurt and it was so painful to breathe. So sorry you're going through all that. Also, your daughter rocks... but I'm sure you already know that!

No going over 250 pages ladies until AFTER Sunday

So I just realized we are at 225 pages WHOA. I will start the new thread Sunday (I hope)...just a warning it may be a little bit recycled

I really should be packing and making lists but can't seem to focus on it.
Hope Miss M did okay at the dentist. DS12 had to have one pulled, and HRH too. They REALLY waited though, and one fell out (meanwhile DS12 had two sets of front teeth for months....) Sorry about the furloughs, those politicians need to get it together and think about us "little people"

I am so glad I found this thread because DH thinks I'm crazy! In fact, I haven't called Disney since Saturday and he asked last night if I thought they would worry about me since it had been so long. I told him to be careful or I'd get really crazy and lose all frugality and end up CL somewhere!!!
We have thought of a DH support group for our nuttiness Poor husbands, even my DHs coworkers don't ask where he is going, because (these are his words) "I don't know where we are staying until we get there...and even then she will change it"

I have had CMs talk me into resorts I hadn't even considered...ahhhhh

I saw that commercial, so did DH and he's like oh boy...here goes Mom

Yes your DH is next!!!!

Poor Brian got 4 shots. He did great though!!! And he is 44 1/2 inches...he can ride Space Mountain....Bree was 43 last checkup, I would LOVE to find out she can rise SM too Fingers crossed!

DH always helps the teeth wiggle a bit...they don't let me help either (sometimes Daddy has the magic touch with the princesses......

Hope all goes well for kiddo. about catching the hubs looking at Disney stuff. That totally rules.
I am glad it went well at the dentist!!! DH has now confided in me he would rather stay at GF than YC/BC...he said we tried BCV and YC, neither were amazing for him...(I wonder if that means no BWI either)

Linda! OMG! I am so glad that you are home but yuck on having your back out! Did you at least get some good eye candy from the 6 EMS workers???

Pas - thanks for keeping us current and starting a new thread! I better book a trip so I can be on page 1!!!! Do you think dh will go along with that logic? I actually looked at the 25% off too but I wasn't ready to pull the trigger. I need my oldest dd (i.e., my travel agent ) to weigh in.

Hannah - congrats on the engagement!

Candace - I agree with Melissa. I think you will change by Monday

Hi to all of my RC friends - Janet, Miss E, Melissa, Linda, Christine, Wookie, Trish, Sue, all the newbies, and everyone I might have missed!

What did I do today? I may have just purchased the Wishes soundtrack and the Spectromagic soundtrack on iTunes Yes, I know Spectro is not coming back but I ABSOLUTELY love that music!

I saw a YC-SV pop up with an AP rate for all 4 nights and voila! Buh-bye GF SL!!!! I just couldn't fall in love with that ressie so I'm so glad to be free of it. Only you gals would understand that feeling. I don't know what I was thinking when I booked that

I am so excited to be on Crescent Lake for F&W One week from tomorrow and I will be there!

Yaaaay! That was an amazing snag so close to checking in, well done!

Pas: You need to make yourself a BWI ressie... and a different one for him.


~~=====================~~

So, I had a temporary panic... like total. flippin'. freak-out. I went and logged on the look at tickets for the party because I still haven't bought them. (Didn't want to spend the extra dosh until the furlough thing hopefully ends.) Looked at the MNSSHP calendar with ticket pricing and it has the WRONG DATES ... 28th instead of 29th like I planned ... AND it was SOLD OUT!

... and then I realised it was the Disneyland site.

Yeah, I'm having trouble loving AKL. I love the animals and the pool/splash area (especially since we have the wee one), but I am not a fan of African cuisine and since we plan on midday breaks, it will be easier to be closer to stuff. Maybe when the littlest is older we can visit the savannah! For now, I feel settled on WL and am happy with the location and food options!

DH has learned to watch for either a worried expression (meaning I'm thinking of changing resorts) or a crazed expression (meaning I HAVE switched resorts) when he gets home. Both seem to elicit the deepest sighs.... and not of longing.

A few weeks ago we saw Destination Discovery channel was airing all the Disney Parks/CL episodes and we just randomly turned it on... then I realized they were UPDATED! I was like a kid in the candy store! Of course, then I promptly got on the computer and started checking rates at various 'park' resorts and going nuts with 'what ifs'. Thankfully the commercials don't affect me AS much!

HELLO!

It's so funny you downloaded the music! I have the Disney Parks album the 'Happiest Celebration on Earth' (2005) on our iPod. It drives DH CRAZY when I decide to listen to it because it messes with the 'random' setting on shuffle. Usually, we get a blend of the most listened to songs/artists... then ever so often we'll hear "Ahhh, my siestas are getting shorter and shorter" or "One little spark of inspiration..." DD loves the album so he's forced to suffer through, even when I'm not there!!!

Congrats but I am SO JEALOUS! If I can find a SV at YC for military rate, I might have to jump on it! We LOVED YC and would book again in a heartbeat. They only had water view and CL available, so I'm content to stay at WL.... for now!!! Enjoy the location!!!

Lillian - Welcome Back! Congrats on your upcoming DFTW! I'm sure it will be absolutely amazing!

Miss - I hope your DH gets good news very soon. Sorry about the tooth issues with Miss M. My DS8 had a hanger-on-er (lol) for what seemed like for-ever. They didn't pull it and it did eventually come out on it's own. What's Benedict Cumberbatch, btw? Lol on the DL MNSSHP mixup.

Mousemommy - Good thoughts for your fam through the furlough stuff too. GF SL sounds perfect for a summer trip! I love everything about the GF except the location during F&W.

Grumpy Grandma - Sending healing vibes for your back. Sorry you are in such pain.

dimndgal - We fell in love with AKL, but WL does have the edge for a MK intense trip!

babyberger - Yay for more trips! And a super-duper RC meet up too! Jealous! I'm going to have to get some info from you on the LBV Resort. I think we are headed offsite next year. This year really hurt the travel budget.

Sue - Yay for a finished reno. But are they ever reaaaalllly done? I'm sure it's beautiful. Pix would be great!

pas - Sorry about DSs shots Yay for SM though. I'll send growing vibes for Bree.

lacey - I think I need to go check out some itunes. I love the Wishes sountrack! ixiedust:

Janet -

I think that does it. Sorry to anyone I missed! The kiddos have off on Friday so tomorrow is my Friday. Woohoo! Bring on the weekend. I haven't even started packing yet.

Just a quick hello from my bed! Sorry I can't multi quote but I wanted to thank everyone for all their feel better wishes. So happy to have so many good friends! Now if any of you have any power with the government please use it. We depend on our two Social Security checks and DH's disabled Vet check. Maybe there will be good news soon.

ACK!
I was in the process of my bi-weekly availability check (just in case my magic rate at YC opens up) and it said the reservation systems are going through an upgrade and are unavailable! What do I doooooooo?

((DH is at me - he's lucky I don't just go crazy and book CR-MK view just to prove a point... 'oops, sweetie, must've been a glitch that one night. Oh well, guess we gotta go with it. ))

Not to aid and abet anyone, but this link is AWESOME:
http://blog.touringplans.com/2013/10...derness-lodge/

The bottom lists when they anticipate having the rest of the resorts online... I've been toying with the BB rooms at WL and now I know how to word the request. Of course, I need to KEEP the reservation if it's going to work

I would LOVE that glitch... if it was at WL price

DH wants to hold off 'going big' until the girls are old enough to remember it. We already have an angry 6 year old because we went to DL when she was 18 months and 3, so she has no real memories of it:

DD: *sees commercial for Cars Land* "Can we go to DL instead of WDW next trip?"
DH: "We went to DL... twice."
DD: "I don't remember it! We have to go back!"
DH: "No we don't - I have the photos. There's proof you were there. If you want, we can put them around the house and you can feel like you're there!"

Next year's trip is to celebrate our 10th anniversary and his upcoming promotion, so he's eased up some on the room - while he enjoyed YC last year, to him a room is a room. The whole government finance fiasco isn't helping any with planning, either - I was hoping to get this great job starting in January but the furloughs made it disappear. *sighs*

I'm thinking for our 15 or 20th anniversary, CR MK view is probably going to be our treat. Our anniversary is Jan 1, so I'd love to get to WDW on our anniversary and stay a week... watch the crowds die down but still get to enjoy the holiday decorations.

I will say that we have already promised DD a trip to Hawaii before she's in college (she was born there and keeps asking about it). DH KNOWS that means we have to do at least a few nights at Aulani (we left the island when they were building it), so I'm not pushing CR.... yet.

Hi GG, Looks like good news for your checks. All just passed, govt open tomorrow. Hope you feel better soon!

I saw a YC-SV pop up with an AP rate for all 4 nights and voila! Buh-bye GF SL!!!! I just couldn't fall in love with that ressie so I'm so glad to be free of it. Only you gals would understand that feeling. I don't know what I was thinking when I booked that

I am so excited to be on Crescent Lake for F&W One week from tomorrow and I will be there!
What a super fab change! Definitely perfect for F&W!
