Have you thought if going thru David's Rentals for Kidani DVC? Or BWI DVC? He has a chart where you can put in your dates to see how much it will cost. And you are able to add DDP. Only thing is you have to be sure of dates. Sorry if you've checked already, can't remember!
Thanks Sue! Yes, I think he'll be happier, it's with a good company (all weather windows) it's good hours (7-3:30'ish) Mon-Fri , opportunities for overtime if he wants, benefits and he's excited about it so I hope it works out for him!

I've thought about Kidani DVC - I haven't checked the points yet. The only thing putting me off the thought is the strict cancellation and the not every day housekeeping (just a little thing I like on holiday, LOL!)
I could pay the $40 per time and have it every other day though - I could live with that!
Part if me really wants to try BWI Deluxe CL though! Just the location would be great with the kids along (although they'll be 18 so should be fine by then!)
I kind of wish I'd kept my reservation at BWI Deluxe room for $5,500 last October instead of the POLY! I'll have to keep an eye on prices and hope a discount comes along!

Ps..... Yippee! yes I did sell the dirtbike, she nickel and dimed me to a great deal for her (I was asking $2500) and I ended up letting her have it for $2000. I didn't want to lose the sale, and I was tired of trying to sell it. As long as I had the $1000 for each kid I promised them/ in Josh's case, owed him -- I was good!
I compromised (no Disney money for me / any extra over 2k was going to be my profit ) but at least it's sold and I don't have to accommodate lookers or emailers trying to get me to give it away for free! Lol

DS21(Josh) is going away to Ontario with his Gf's family for 3 weeks , DS17 (Andrew) is going to our cities local fair/ Klondike days next Sat, so DH told me to book a hotel with a jacuzzi tub in the room so the two of us can get away just for a night "staycation"
It's been a long time since we've just had time for us, so even though it cost $149 (not bad for a jacuzzi room ) it was worth the splurge!
May make it a date weekend -- dinner out, and movie then hotel.

Kook 3 weeks from today!!!
You know Harrison Ford?!?!
Your daughter is more than welcome to come! Can she bring Harrison with her?!
Thank you for the nice comments!

JeanetteThank you for the compliment on the costume. Love the faceainting idea - brilliant! We are doing movie nights here to pass the time. There are a bumnch of ideas on my trip report. When does school start again?

Jenny I am sorry to hear about the teeth trouble. We have the same thing going on. Our dentist shaved down my girls two canine baby teet to make room for her bottom ones but her top two front teeth are a nightmare. One is still practically sideways. We have another appointment on the 16th to see what else can be done. Her dad and I both have 8 teeth out and I had braces for 10 years and I still have a retainer so I am hoping that they will consider pulling a couple for her.

wookie I am so sorry to hear about all the stress your GF-in-L is causing.

Miss Thank you for the nice comments about the dress. It took the weekend to do. Two trips to the fabric store which is an hour away. And one visit to wal-mart for navy thread.
Sorry to hear about your grumpy dad. Parents can make you crazy. It's theri job.

Heather Welcome to the painters! Hope they are making everything beautiful for you!

So I was a little bored today .......


Then I started playing around on the WDW website ......


Decided I wanted stay at a moderate:

POFQ - not the pool for me
POR - stayed there is Jan .... love it but want something different
CBR - I don't think so .... no particular reason
CSR - YES!!! That's the one for me!

Janet resort addition alert!

Now I'm booked at:

CSR 9/2 - 9/5
AKV 9/5 - 9/12
OKW 9/12 - 9/19

Decided that for the hot Sept weather the Dig Site pool was the place for me!

Sjs314: Thanks for the Portofino review. If I had a 40 percent off pin I'd book pronto.

SueM: I'd be a tad miffed at the server for flubbing the Castle Cake.

Alysa: Nice to meet ya. I've been MIA for a bit. Cute costume, you are talented.

GGrandma: I dig the CSR Dig Site and pool. Nice addition.

Miss: I appreciate the input on the HR Hotel. Great point and it probably is much younger and rowdier crowd there... Sometimes I forget my "real" age.

Chimo2u: Good deal that you got the dirt bike sold. Your plan for a stay-cation with DH sounds great and romantic and relaxing and...

Good morning all!! I have been trying to stay caught up reading, but no time to post replies.

2 weeks from tomorrow!!! :-) kids still don't know! DS still has some "homework" to do before he learns of his big surprise! :-) thinking of giving him his autograph book that I made on Shutterfly and see if he "gets it".

Have a great day!! :-)

Pas, so very very close ... Your latest change is great... In only a few days you will be hitting the road !!

Hope every one is having a Good Friday!
I'm sorry. I hope you can get him to the doctor soon, so you can get some answers. At the very least, I would take the number of a scooter rental company with you. You could just be really sneaky, and go ahead and rent one. Maybe if he's already paid for it, he will be more willing to use it, so the money is not wasted.

Thank you. Friday was a hard day to say the least. The DH had to run a couple of service calls that morning. As soon as he got home, David, Joey and I went to the funeral home even though the viewing didn't start until 6 PM. JM spent the night with the bil since we didn't think it was a good idea for him to go. We sat in the room, with the open casket, the rest of the afternoon, until family members started showing up for the viewing. I am so proud of Joey. He stood right by the casket comforting his grandfather (my DH's father).

I compromised (no Disney money for me / any extra over 2k was going to be my profit ) but at least it's sold and I don't have to accommodate lookers or emailers trying to get me to give it away for free! Lol

I'm glad you were able to sell it, even if you didn't get as much as you wanted out of it.

It's been a long time since we've just had time for us, so even though it cost $149 (not bad for a jacuzzi room ) it was worth the splurge!
May make it a date weekend -- dinner out, and movie then hotel.
You should make a date weekend out of it. Y'all deserve it.

Thank you It was a really hard weekend, but then it was wonderful as well. David got to see cousins of his that he hadn't seen in over 20 years, and I had never met. There were a lot of tears and heartache, but there was also laughter and joy. David and I are already making plans to go see several of his cousins between this coming WDW trip and next year's vacation. On the way to WDW we will stop in Biloxi and see one cousin that was at the funeral, and his sister (who couldn't attend). Then on the way home, we'll go through TN to possibly see another cousin. That cousin's husband just got back from Afghanistan and she thinks he'll be receiving his bronze star the 2nd weekend in September, which happens to be the weekend we are driving home from WDW. David has decided that next year, we are going to drive to the Grand Canyon. On the way there, we will stop and see another cousin that was there this weekend, and maybe some of his mom's family. The other planned stops include Roswell, Tombstone, and Phoenix (to show the boys where the DH lived there and hopefully to see a childhood friend of mine).
