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!
Looking forward to hearing what you think of CSR. Only mod we haven't stayed at.

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...
Glad it's not just me! But I was really upset when he did that. I had thought they had forgotten about the cake I ordered, and went up to the podium to ask.

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!! :-)
Woohoo

Wookie such a difficult weekend for you all. Been keeping you in my thoughts

Sheila, is Bob stressed? That and depression can make one forgetful ...

Kor, so close for you!! And the poly!

Magic, kind of liking the HRH. .. And hey you are NOT old!!

Alysa, been meaning to comment on your beautiful DD and her amazing outfit!! It's fantastic!

Marie, congrats on selling the bike!

GG, liking your addition... Know you were itching to change something the pool at CSR rocks!

Heather, did I miss it? No picture of the day treat?

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

Sue, hoping that knee is feeling a lot better ...but hey floating around SAB is a nice option too!

Can't quote well on the phone and don't mean to leave out anyone ... Hi to Ginny, Lacey, Miss, Jen, Christine, dani, Kook, you are so close too...

We r heading back to PA today ...Sam is flying to Wisconsin on wed ... first time flying alone ... She seems fine I'm just a basket case ... But will not show it in front of her she going out to visit her bff.

Will try to catch up better later ... Enjoy the day!
Thanks for asking. Today wasn't a good knee day. Been a busy week, so maybe over did it. Just so many things going on last week! Funeral, BFFs birthday, wedding reception, trip into Seattle for a little cross border shopping, lol.

Wookiebeen thinking about you. Haven't fully caught up, but guess its true about weddings & funerals bringing family together.

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.
Sounds great

We ate there for lunch. I had the ahi tuna and dd had the croque Monsieur both very good. We ate by the windows that snow. Also thought the Rose room was very cool.

No kidding?! Which type of taekwondo does he practice? We're ATA. I'm hoping that Stephen sticks with it and earns his blackbelt.
My youngest got her brown belt in shotokan then decided to quit ugh. But once she decides she's done, the arguments just wasn't worth it!! Hope Stephan sticks with it.

I am all caught up but I will never get all the multiquotes right. Let me give it a whirl -

Marie - sorry you are frustrated with Ds. I completely support your choice on making him work. Don't let him make you feel guilty. Crossing my fingers that all goes well when he returns from vacation.

Miss E - both of my dds dance competitively. My oldest has been dancing for 11 years and just made the high school dance team - woot! Woot! And my youngest has been dancing for 6 years. They take ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop and tumbling. Did your dance school give you any direction on shoes? For our new students, the shoes have to be purchased at the studio. They fit the kids and order them. They are fairly inexpensive. As they get older, they start wearing better shoes. We usually get fitted at a local store for our first pair of a specific style and after I know the base size, I order from discount dance.com (no space) to replace them. All brands and styles run different so it can be a challenge to get the right size. Our older kids and competitive dancers like the canvas ballet shoes best because they show off the foot and are more flexible. But they tear up quickly. Our studio usually starts girls in the leather ones. Make sure to get "split sole" so she can move her foot. So the bottom of the shoe should have a sole under the toe part of the foot and a separate sole under the heel as opposed to one piece. HTH. Oh and when you laugh and point at the crazy parents that seem to be at the studio for hours and are spending their entire pay checks on costumes and you say, I would never do that......yeah we'll, I was there once too. I thoughts those moms were nuts. And here 7 years later.....(and yes, I am nuts)!

Jenny - hope you don't cancel your cruise! Hugs my friend!

Kristen - no more changes? Poly is sticking? That is the next resort on my bucket list (or CR). I have a feeling we will prefer EPCOT area though.

Pas - have you started packing? What did I miss about HRH and dh not going to the parks? Is it because they prefer to hang out and relax? I have been helping my SIL look at and price offsite resorts. Have you done one before? Like you, she has a family too big for one room. Offsite seems much more economical when you need 2 rooms. Plus, then her and BIL can sleep in the same room! We have been looking at WBC, Caribe (sp?) and one other that I can't remember. She home schools so she will go in the offseason which also helps. She wants us to come. I am thinking about maybe taking just my youngest.....

Whose dd scored the great bargains at the Disney outlet? I loved them! Youngest dd and I love anything with the "nerds" on them and they are getting hard to find!
One time we stayed a night Pre wdw pig at the DTD Doubletree which are all suites. Got discount from Mousesavers site that included breakfast. Our 1 bdrm suite was quite spacious, and still sort of in wdw. Had very good transportion, running every 30 min.

New ones this trip for us - BOG (dinner), Yak & Yeti, Coral Reef, The Wave (breakfast), and 1900 Park Fare (dinner). Was going to do Raglan Road, but decided against going to DtD this trip unless we hit it on the way out or the kids specifically ask to go. But since we're at the Poly now, I wanted to make sure we enjoy the resort and have plenty of downtime, as well as make use of the easy transportation. :-)
Some of our Favs! We sat in front of aquarium at Coral Reef where the turtle likes to hang out! Love the Miso Salmon at Y&Y, step sisters at 1900 are hilarious!! Theming at BOG is cool. I think if I go this trip (lunch) ill sit in the Rose room.

sjs was it you asking about HRH? I thought the halls were very loud. Horrible acoustics. Could hear everyone's conversation outside in the halls coming home from City Walk.

Good Morning All!

Just wanted to pop in and wish everyone a very happy Monday No time to multi-quote and catch up, yet. The boys have doctor appointments first thing, then I have to run home and make sure the painters are finishing up, then take Faith to the dentist... AGAIN. And if time permits - boys to taekwondo and hopefully when we return, my kitchen will be complete and working! Gotta love these crazy days

Good morning RC family Got home yesterday afternoon and now back to reality. Mounds of laundry to do and finish unpacking, but it is slow going since Friday my foot started hurting and I am still in a lot of pain when I walk on it, if it doesn't start getting better in a couple of days I will go have it x-rayed to make sure I don't have a stress fracture or something

I will try to start reading to see what I have missed the past couple of weeks, but wanted to stop in and give a big and to everyone!!!!

Next up, Disney planning, ADR day is in a few weeks, so I need to get my act together! Oh and speaking of that, DH and I talked about the Feb trip and he still isn't sold on spending the $ on BLT, or CR for that matter, he likes the idea of staying off prop and saving the $, but you know I will not let that happen

HUGS,
Melissa

sjs314: Thinking of you.

pas130: Ooooh what days are you at Univ? I am PBH still but HRH is looming large. I don't like the idea of 1st floor CL near the lobby at PBH... do you have any input either way about it? I cancelled Poly yesterday... finally.

SueM: And I forgot the mention that the birthday cake wasn't cheap either... Glad you are hanging in with the knee.

JanetB: Hoping you had a relaxing time at the upstate cottage.

babyberger: Hope you had fun-fun-fun on our coast. Since you fam is here, I am sure we'll get a chance to meet up one of these days soon. Something tells me the "offsite" vs "onsite" banter between you and DH is going to produce verrrrry funny quotes for our RCer benefit. Betcha I know the outcome already, too.

hstrickland: Busy days for you. Hope your kitchen turns out exactly how you imagined.

Ah PBR

I never did call about PBR yesterday I think your right maybe 2014?

JB extended their fares yesterday till April 30 I checked first week in March and first week in April, I have enough in credits for 1 tix and enough points for another Decided to hold off, still have to pay the Poly off

I booked SOA yesterday and thinking today I should have waited . I am so indecisive this trip, I am thinking now I should maybe do the Dessert Party that evening or stick with my original plan of Epcot EMH except the one time I did EMH at Epcot it was terrible busy.

Ah well, good thing the zoo is close and we've got season tickets. (Don't know why she does this every. single. Sunday. We had a lot of fun stuff we were going to do yesterday. Did nothing other than that shortened zoo visit. )

We could be "awful" together. I'd have done the EXACT same thing! Apple are the bees' knees; I'm so glad they were recommended or I wouldn't have known who to call. (Love that they also include delivery -- makes it very convenient.) Could you use the "suck it up, buttercup" line and just have the scooter waiting for him?

Don't know if it's just me, but I was upset with that server.
Oooooh NO! How unfortunate is that?! Ugh.

Welcome home, Melissa. Hope the foot-news isn't bad. You need a vacation from your vacation -- or at least your feet do. ADRs, eh? What's on the radar?

Candace: Come back!

Koh: Getting down to the wire! No changing!


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

Miss M enjoyed her first ballet lesson. She had the instructor to herself because they failed to mention they were joining classes with the earlier one. Not having to compete (like for the ball in soccer) might be more her speed. We shall see.

Back later. I'm going to attempt to have the kiddo help me wash the dog in the backyard. This shall be an interesting experiment.

One time we stayed a night Pre wdw pig at the DTD Doubletree which are all suites. Got discount from Mousesavers site that included breakfast. Our 1 bdrm suite was quite spacious, and still sort of in wdw. Had very good transportion, running every 30 min.

Some of our Favs! We sat in front of aquarium at Coral Reef where the turtle likes to hang out! Love the Miso Salmon at Y&Y, step sisters at 1900 are hilarious!! Theming at BOG is cool. I think if I go this trip (lunch) ill sit in the Rose room.

sjs was it you asking about HRH? I thought the halls were very loud. Horrible acoustics. Could hear everyone's conversation outside in the halls coming home from City Walk.
We stayed a couple of times at the DTD Doubletree as well! LOVED the suites and the cost of them. :-) but definitely like the convenience of being on property now...talk about long bus rides...

So DH nearly spilled it yesterday. We were getting a new camera at Best Buy and the guy asked something about what we were getting it for or whatnot. Well, DH says him oh yeah, we 're getting ready to go on vacation (which the kids didn't know even that yet) and DS goes "we're going on vacation?" And I hit DH and he quickly recovers by saying it's to Six Flags. Ay yi yi...later he tells DS we don't know yet where we're going...*shaking my head*

And if time permits - boys to taekwondo and hopefully when we return, my kitchen will be complete and working! Gotta love these crazy days

Heather
morning Heather! Yay for kitchen being done. We are renovating our basement, adding bathroom, moving laundry room while I'm in Florida. DH is home to organize it. I don't know if I should be happy I won't be around during the upheaval or scared

I will try to start reading to see what I have missed the past couple of weeks, but wanted to stop in and give a big and to everyone!!!!

Next up, Disney planning, ADR day is in a few weeks, so I need to get my act together! Oh and speaking of that, DH and I talked about the Feb trip and he still isn't sold on spending the $ on BLT, or CR for that matter, he likes the idea of staying off prop and saving the $, but you know I will not let that happen

HUGS,
Melissa
Welcome home!! Hope your foot gets better and not fractured!

SueM: And I forgot the mention that the birthday cake wasn't cheap either... Glad you are hanging in with the knee.

JanetB: Hoping you had a relaxing time at the upstate cottage.

babyberger: Hope you had fun-fun-fun on our coast. Since you fam is here, I am sure we'll get a chance to meet up one of these days soon. Something tells me the "offsite" vs "onsite" banter between you and DH is going to produce verrrrry funny quotes for our RCer benefit. Betcha I know the outcome already, too.

hstrickland: Busy days for you. Hope your kitchen turns out exactly how you imagined.
I know, those cakes are way to expensive, which is why I was so upset that waiter kinda presented it as an afterthought he should have presented the cake first, then bought the free Narcoossee's dessert with extra forks for table to share IMO! Oh well!

Yes, we do like on site better too, and it was only one night Pre pkg. I had decided to come in a day earlier, the peril of having an AP I did think it was a great option for larger families, nice accomodation at a reasonable rate, and as close to on site as it gets. And I loved the Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries. and Starbucks coffee!
And if on site just gets too unaffordable for us with ever increasing prices, and lower discounts, it may just become my option!!
