You could phone DME directly to give them the current info, and ask them what to do. As long as they get the correct flights you should be good. One of the things I love about DME is that I don't have to get my luggage, drag it around airport, and resort. In my carry on I always pack pjs, bathing suit, flip flops, and a change of clothes. I don't trust the airlines not to loose my luggage!!

Wookie!!! Happy Anniversary!!!! I hear you on the fear of gymnastics.

But, she loves it and she has great teachers that know what they are doing so I let her do her thing.....I guess it's paying off!
Thanks!!

Sue M...I did call them direct and that was the suggestion (the whole crossing off and putting in correct stuff)....I think I'm just paranoid...since I've done the whole lost luggage fiasco before. We went to Israel and the airline lost our luggage!! Being in Israel with no clothes...oh, SO not fun!! We never saw it again either!! I am going to pack a carry on, have done that ever since the lost luggage!!!

I guess I'll chance it...sigh! We'll hope for the best!

And on a side note....I have got to see that clown pool in person!

Enjoy the day, you fabulous neighbours-to-the-north! Perhaps I should go get the makings of a Caesar to toast you ladies later on...

This would be a PERFECT location for an RC-Diva trip! Oh my, could you imagine?! We'd all plan to be there but wind up at different resorts anyway from all the changing.

I'm just trying to stay sane, honestly. That's about all I've got time for.

Hubbo -- who's in Seattle at the moment -- said it's funny how they're all complaining about the heat. Then I reminded him how it was for us when we lived overseas with no AC. He said, "Yeah. I know exactly how they feel." Luckily his hotel has AC but the university buildings don't.

No worries about not having the right tags. If you're unsure of whether changing the luggage tags they sent you will work: Just take your luggage receipt sticker-thingies you get from the airlines down to the DME desk, they'll retrieve your luggage from those.


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

Kiddo's all blotchy again. I'm totally perplexed what this could be from. Thought it was the bugspray but she hasn't had that on her since the first time she broke out. Taking her to the doc's later on. I think it bothers me more than her... other than her scratching it occasionally. Ah, the mysteries of children. Keeps us on our toes.

GG, you know how much I love Piano Bob!! Soo, did we discuss POR for next year's ToT?? Ok, sounds good to me!! hoping for cooler temps your way ASAP...

Jen, congrats on ordering the Christmas party tix!! POR seems like a great compromise...so much to do and the resort is so beautiful!! Who knows? You could discover your next favorite resort.

Sheila, hoping you bad allergy/breathing day yesterday is history. and oh I vote POLY this year, CRUISE the next!!

Willow, hope you had a great weekend visit with Mom. and you are at 4 days and counting!!!!

But alas, pirates it is! Definitely nice to be able to add 2 extra days since the original booking at CR (for the same price)! And since this trip will need to tide me over for a while, the extra park time (and downtime too) is an awesome thing.
Krystal, you will have an awesome time! And adding 2 extra days is a great tradeoff!

Less than 24 hours later? WHAM-O, suddenly it's "Let's Inflict Mental Anguish on the Unsuspecting" day. Bedtime was TOTALLY early tonight.
our kids love to get us feeling all good and relaxed and then BAM!! Was it a cocktails night?? (our Miss M is still a cutie-patootie) and ALL kids pull this now and then....

Hiya friends!
I am trying hard to catch up after our recent trip to a wedding in Atlanta. I am backreading, and enjoying hearing about all the changes and, of course, pondered changes.
A bit about the wedding. There were three of us that were good friends while our husbands were stationed in Germany. We each had two babies there, and had a lovely friendship. Fast forward...ummm...Yikes..30 years, and those little ones are all grown up and getting married. This wedding was for one of those children. Such fun! The weekend went by fast, but we managed to find lots of happy time together.

I have been busy tweaking dining. I hope I finally have it set, but with me, who knows? It looks like Cali grill should be open for our trip, fingers crossed we'll get reservations. I noted the chef changed the name of his twitter page, but there's good info about Cali grill there, still. I figure he should know when it will reopen. Just quoting my read, Sounds like maybe last week in August?

Sure missed you all! I will do a muti-quote tomorrow, sending out hugs and best wishes to all the rc friends today!

Oh, that's awful that the luggage was never returned!! I guess we all learn to pack a day or 2 worth of necessities from past experience.

Yes, you must visit BWI and check out scary clown but I admit I've never liked clowns, lol. Check out lobby too, they have creepy chairs by the fireplace clearly, I have issues!! The boardwalk entertainers are fun, and I love walking around the shops, Waylands has some different Jewlery, and it's always fun going thru the Sweets shop

She's got everyone fooled, fooled I say! She was actually much, muuuuch better than yesterday. Now, can she make it two days in a row?

If ever this grand plan comes to fruition, you are the designated ressie holder! Although, if Linda were to co-chair this position with you... we could stay at ALL the resorts!

Thank you. Kinda what I had suspected, it's some sort of contact allergy. She's given me a referral to see the allergist if it doesn't clear up in a week.

Nope, those ARE creepy chairs! Hahahaha. When we visited the lobby in January, I told my daughter to go "sit on the freaky chairs" so I could get a picture.
