Thank you. It's one thing when you disappoint me, but it's totally different when you disappoint my boys.

Lots of Poly chit-chat going on So here's one for ya....early morning, of course.




Technically it's a view of CR, but taken from the beautiful Poly. JMHO, of course, but the Poly view is hard to beat at WDW....Cinderella Castle & the MK, the lake, the CR, the Grand Flo! What more could a Disney lover want??!! Can ya tell I'm a little partial to the MK resort area?? ....Disney nostalgia at it's best!
Beautiful pic!!

I'm glad your DH offered to hire someone to finish the painting you want done. Mine has "grounded me for life" for painting. I swear, a girl gets caught once trying to paint carpet and gets no 2nd chances. At the time we were living in a mobile home, and I decided I want to paint the walls in the DSs room. The boys picked the shade of purple they liked. Since it was in a mobile home park, and their room was close to the street, I didn't want to open the window. I didn't want to feel like people were watching me. Plus I had the door shut so the fumes wouldn't be in the rest of the house. I was so goofy by the time the DH got home, I had painted all four walls, the back of the door into the room, the front of the closet door, the ceiling, and was just starting on the carpet.

If you really want, just PM me your name and number and they'll call you and set up a time for you to come look at them. Don't worry, they'll keep calling until you schedule.....even if it take 4 or 5 calls a day....everyday until you schedule.

Beautiful!! I would love to be there right now. I just wish I could twitch my nose like Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie.


Well the DH, his father, and their family could use all the prayers and good thoughts you can send their way. Sometime between 4:30 - 6:30 AM this morning, my DH's father's father shot himself in the head. He had been on new medication and very paranoid as of lately, and he was convinced a doctor told him he had cancer (which the daughter that was in the room with him said the doctor never said he had cancer). After years and years of his father being drunk by 10 AM and calling him cussing him out, my fil was finally having the kind of relationship he always wanted with his dad. They even went Saturday and saw The Lone Ranger together. The fil's dad had even asked about them going to see a Texas Rangers game together (like we had talked about doing for Father's Day).

Oh Jen, I am sorry you are stressed. Between the heat, and rain...the kids have spent more time indoors with the Wii than I'd like. Our big day trips are the library...today was haircut day for the girls!!! Tomorrow mani pedis!

Jeanette - you are right, I remember wishing I hadn't given up my BWI reservation! My kids even didn't fall head over heels with the POLY - they still like AKL the best!!!
BWI is really the only resort left that piques my interest outside of AKL! If this time isn't the charm, then I'm done tempting fate, and it'll be AKL from here on out lol! BWI Dlx CL is still teetering in first place! It'll come down to budget in the end and I hope we can make it work
It's all good Marie!!! Both are neat-o IMHO...so how was Josh's first night?????

What they let us do is a "lay away" on the down payment. We have a year to pay off the $1,000 once we do, we can use that money (plus the $500 gift certificate they gave us) to put towards a deed membership. This will hopefully, help me reach my goal of a fabulous 20th wedding anniversary trip in July 2015.

Right now, for going and listening to their spiel, we have two trips. One is a 4 night cruise. The other is a 4 night stay at either Aruba, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, or Oahu or Maui Hawaii (with each island having three hotel options).
Nice!!!!!!!!!

chimo2u - Good luck with your decision. Somehow I bet you will end up with CL I hope your DSs first night went well!

Koh - Yay for the poly! I echo the votes for Tokelau. It's definitely my favorite building after Hawaii!

Miss - Forgot to mention before, love the miss M pix. The exorcist comment had me LOL.

pas - I'm not seeing a ticker, but I know you have to be going soon, right? POR sounds perfect. I hope things are getting better for you.

eta - wait as I type this I see I might be outdated already.... WL CL? CSR BC? Spill it!!!!!

jenny - Love the pix! I cannot wait to get back to the Poly Sorry you have been stressed. I agree that the weather this summer has just been the worst.

wookie - The timeshare thing sounds interesting...

I am so sorry to hear about FIL's dad. I'll be keeping your family in my thoughts.

Alysa - Wow! That dress is awesome and what a cutie wearing it too!

hstrickland - Thanks for the poly pix! Glad to hear your going to get some help with painting. I'm about to tackle my family room, but we have this wall to wall entertainment center and I don't know if I should spend days taking it down or just cheat. Both options sound horrible actually

You should go for a photography class! I really thought you already were a pro. Your pix are always so perfect! You must be a natural

babyberger - I wanna be where YOU are! Gorgeous! Enjoy your trip

Well, there is nothing interesting to report here. Hi to everyone I missed

The DH has finally came to the realization that I wasn't willing to cancel the timeshare thing. I think he wants to keep it as well, he's just using me as an excuse to not cancel.

Thank you all so much. It has hit the family pretty hard. When we were first told about it, we were just told that he passed. It wasn't until about an hour after we were first told, that we were told how he died. It's just so senseless and has his children (and my DH) thinking it's their fault because they didn't see the signs and didn't stop it. Honestly ladies, right now I'm just ticked off. This man spent too much time in a bottle to be any kind of a grandfather to my DH, and he ends his own life, leaving my DH to feel guilty. I have the same Momma Bear instincts towards my DH that I do my DSs (as I'm sure y'all do). You know the, you hurt my kids (or DH), and heck hath no fury like what I'm going to do to you kind of instincts. I just wish I could transport the four of us to WDW so we didn't have to deal with the real life junk, and our hardest decision would be "Dole Whip Float or Mickey Head Ice Cream Bar?"

You're very kind...and give me too much credit. Photobucket helps a ton I wish I had my dad's knowledge of the camera settings and functions. I can pull off the creative framework, but have trouble when I need a specific setting for those hard to get shots. One day I'll have time to learn more...
