Give a big LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT to our gal Sam (and a cold bottle of water). Sorry that you've had a challenging week. Speaking of which, how is our fearless Changer in Chief? I hope she's just been busy working and all is well. Big hugs to you both.

I like having my luggage there for when room is ready.


This seems like a plan!

I just got home...ugh. Work, grocery shopping, target and laundry when I got home....long, long, day...I'm going to catch up reading now! 8 days!! So ready!

Janet -- DH has DS working in a workbook to make sure he's ready for 1st grade (and doesn't forget everything!) and so he promised him an extra special surprise when he finishes it. Which he said was Disney...SO I'm thinking maybe after he completes it, he'll get the clues that lead him to the hidden letters DISNEY. Then with the last letter he gets the map which will have the treasure marked (bag with all the goodies?).

Thoughts?

RE: my mental RCing earlier...I'd love to do a split stay with the CR, BUT I also like the schedule we have right now, and it's only available through 8/8 NOT 8/9.

Wilderness Lodge....I saw it, I had to have it. I arrive on July 5th....
I have woods view. Could have done Courtyard view for $50 more total...Did not know which. What do you all think? Should I have gone for that instead? Woods view sounded nice and I didn't even request anything....should I? I have to do the work thing again..what's up with that??!! So open to room request suggestions...or courtyard view......?? Have a wonderful day everyone...I will catch up when I get home tonight!! I really love this place.

Willow: Yay for WL!! And on July 5 too! So freakin close! Super excited for you!

Ok, on the verge of a change here myself. Considering a move to a family suite at ASM....cannot beat the price with the BB we have. It is still about $400 cheaper than a family suite at AOA for the same dates. And all the DD's will have their own bed. The older two did not really enjoy sharing this past trip.

I know a few of you don't enjoy the values, but do any of the RC ladies have any experiences that were good there?? Candace, was it you who had a bad experience there?? In looking at the pics it really doesn't look too bad, but will we be super disappointed after staying at deluxes?? Help me!!!

Perhaps I just need someone to tell me the little bit of extra $$ is worth it to stay deluxe!! LOL!

Janet: COngrats on Sam making the HS marching band!! That is awesome!

DetTigsGal: Sounds like a great day! Keep having fun!

Hi Sheila!!

Okay, so DH just gave me the go ahead to price out Boardwalk Inn instead! I know it is around the same price as Beach Club, but DH really wants to try something different too. I am sensing a phone call in my future!!

Kook: What is a good room request for a standard room??

Jen

Woohoo! BWI sounds lovely - it's the resort in front running for my next trip
It seems like Jan 2015 will take forever to come! I could do with a review before then, Jen

Quick update on DH (it's his bday today and we're taking him to Red Robin (A CDN burger joint) for dinner -- yeah! No cooking!!! -- tomorrow is date night at the VIP theatre to see The Heat)

Dr apt was a mixed bag still. He is finally given the go ahead to begin more aggressive Physio to see if he can get movement in the top joint of his pinky. If after 2 months/ end summer it's still not moving or contributing to function of his other three working fingers, he'll have to make a choice if its really worth keeping if it is hindering function of the other three. He's grown quite attached to his little/ smaller hand, so that would be a big dissapointment to lose baby finger too. The surgeon said though in his opinion if the baby finger has no movement still, it's just going to suck from his three good fingers, and he'll have better function with three fingers than 3 and a tag along finger that's not offering any function to his overall hand use.
So it's a waiting game and Physio all summer to see what kind of movement / if any he can obtain in his baby finger. Next Visit is Aug 28th. We should have a little better idea by then what he's looking at for going forward to meet his goal of going back as a Sheriff/ if he can. That's the hope though.

DH and I are in need of a holiday!!!

DS 21 FINALLY has his interview for his first job at Home Depot ( CDN hardware store) today! He's applied for a night shift position M-F 10pm-6:30am
On the freight team -- offloading/ stocking etc. I am so hoping he gets it because he needs to get his life started somehow - he needs it for experience- he needs it as a stepping stone for whatever he's going to do next ( which at the moment is kind of unknown , but leaning towards the possibility of becoming an electrician) -- he needs it for his sanity and self esteem! He just needs something to feel good about and to work and have his own savings and sense of accomplishment -- oh how I hope he's successful and gets offered the position! I have a feeling if he fails at this, his self esteem might be crushed and he may just go into a slump please pixie dust for my boy!!!!

Hope all is well with all my loving RCer family
