I think we all knew that POR was a flash in the pan. We love you Jeanette.


Please tell me it's not just my child which does this...

When the co-parent is away, she loves to lull me into a false sense of security. Here I was yesterday thinking, "Wow, she's been the bees' knees today. All nice and stuff. Listening and whatnot." Who is this wunderkind of goodness?

Less than 24 hours later? WHAM-O, suddenly it's "Let's Inflict Mental Anguish on the Unsuspecting" day. Bedtime was TOTALLY early tonight.

DS's interview went well I think, we're waiting for a security clearance to be done and references checked/ could be a 5 day process or so -- with Canada Day long weekend, we might hear something next week. They did ask if he had a pair of work boots at the end of the interview, so that's a good sign, but we'll have to go shopping for work boots for him if the offer comes through. It'll be an adjustment working night shift (10-6:30 am) mon to Fri/ at least he doesn't have to work weekends. It'll work out till he can save enough for a car too because by the time he drives home, I don't leave for work until 7:30, so he can use our car for now. I am hoping he gets the job, he's 21 and had many struggles, but it's time to start testing the world on his own a little. I'll still be here to support him but I need him to start testing life's waters and trying to find his way. It's so hard when they are not academically gifted and don't know what they want to do! I hope things work out for him because I worry so much. I am so thankful my youngest - my 17 yo- has firm plans to join the military after HS next year! He's a bit more of a go-getter and knows what he wants. I thought younger yrs where hard??? Nothing compared to this time of their life!
Praying it all works out so DH and I can finally start enjoying some of our hard earned money again, lol!!!
Good luck to your son with the job.
Yes, sadly CAD is down, ugh. I'm glad I have my hotels PIF for August at par. And flights. I have a USD $ acct here, and just transferred $100 into it. Cost me $107 CAD for $100 USD

I have issues!! :-)

I agree, POR is our fav moderate, and possibly the prettiest resort on property. We prefer the mansions. And one day we will do the horse & carriage rides! This may be a possibility for our January stay. I'm going to wait to see what kind of BB we get in August.

So disappointed in Late summer AP discounts :-(. Not any better then GP discounts, only 30 % on deluxe not even a lousy 35% sheech!!

Thanks for all of the congrats to DD!!! She loved reading them.

Jeanette...why does this change not surprise me????

Well, I just got home from a mommy/daughter night with DD9. We only live 20 minutes from Canobie Lake Park, a local amusement park, so we headed down there and it was fun. Many more thrill rides than Disney, so I'm hurting a little bit now....but we had a good time. It's so funny that I have been going to Canobie since I was a very small girl and I just can't take those rides like I used to anymore....Advil and bed are in order for me now.

Have a great night all!

Even DS6 who ends up with twitching eyes and nose, etc. when he's tired and he's been a twitching mess the past couple of days. Didn't even argue much when I said he needed to take a nap today so I know he's tired. Can't afford to get sick now!!

Now I just have to put together the treasure map and clues, etc. for the reveal and get the nerve to let DH know I have a few things I've collected for that. Hehehe
Sending you good thought, prayers, and pixie dust, that you don't get sick.

I hope the reveal goes well.

Congrats to your DD. I'm a 37 year old woman, and I still have never done a single cartwheel. I was terrified as a child that I would fall mid-cartwheel, land on my neck and break it, so I refused to even attempt one.

Sounds like a great night.

Well it's officially our 18th wedding anniversary!! I really need to get to bed, because I am going to get up super early, and go to the bank and Wal Mart before coming home, getting the men up and buying the tickets online (so we can save $8 per ticket). I'm still not sure what we'll be doing for dinner though.

To all of our lovely Canandians....HAPPY CANADA DAY!!

Also, as an odd bit of American history, today marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. The DH is a huge Civil War buff, so I'm pretty sure he agree to our wedding date, because it would be easy for him to remember.
