I totally understand and can respect that. I just hate to think I did something that caused her even more stress or unhappiness. When you think she is ready to hear it, let her know that we love her, miss her, and will be here when she is ready to return.

I understand this 300%. Janet - you'll have to keep us posted on whether or not the pas family makes it to BWI. And hopefully after vacation, Jeanette will be ready to visit. I need her to give me some scoopage on the Boardwalk area! :-)

Just adding that I know she would love for everyone to carry on with resort changing and related discussions. As Janet alluded to, she is a bit overwhelmed right now and just needs to regroup and revitalize. I know you can all appreciate and understand this. We eagerly await her return - when she's ready

Thank you for your sweet thoughts and wisdom Janet. It is so understandable that she (like all of us now and then) might need the gift of time to catch her breath. The RC thread has always been a place easy going sharing, support, and friendship. Sending love and gentle hugs to all the dear RC friends tonight, and always.

Me too but it was never meant to be mean. Now I feel so awful so sad she took it seriously. I thought she understood that we were teasing, guess that's the problem with Internet, you can't see people's intentions. And it's easy to read things the wrong way.

Janet I know all too well the need to step away sometimes and send all my love to Jeanette to help her get through this rough time.

I agree. I honestly feel terrible.

My need to want to contact her to apologize, is just me trying to do what I always do, which is try and fix problems.

An official Royal Order from the Queen~

Resume all resort changes immediately

Or just chatter...all good!

THIS IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE THE RC PALACE!

On the resorts board, here to help all the ch-ch-changers!!!

To the lurkers and new members, this is a drama free zone and a safe place. Please see post number one.

The fabulous ladies here will help to answer questions about WDW in any way.

And I practice what I preach, if I am upset I simply relax, breathe, and move on. When I took over for stepdisney it was to continue the RC thread so we would have a home. Your home is here my friends, always. Please stay...it's an order


I can't say I am 100% rational, and there are many, many personal things I have to deal with. Did I take the BWI banter personally, yes. But only because, any newcomer could see that too. How would you feel if you had your heart set, and came back to 2 pages of talk AGAINST your resort...that's all. Straw that broke the camel's back. Long week. I understand you all wanting to move to the Community board, cool..but let's keep the RC resort thread alive...it helps so many people, and we've met some awesome peeps!! Happy 4th of July!!!

I love ya, my dear friend and RC Queen!! This old timer will try to be present a bit more often. So, so happy to see your post. Made my day!

( ...and clowns give me the creeps so I was a bit concerned about my BWV stay...but guess what...never noticed the clown face at the pool and I sat right there for hours...yep. Not creepy in person at all. Think it is something about seeing the whole thing in a photo...but it's different up close. It is a great pool area for kids, even a fun kiddie pool with elephant water sprays! So cute!! BWV was great and the rooms were so pretty!)

Happy 4th of July RC family!!!
