Sue: I do the roll up thing too.it depends how long of a trip and if we are doing a split stay.

I can't wait until VGF ! It has a walk in closet

I probably won't even want to leave the room. TV's built in the mirror so I can take a bath and watch Stacey's must dos

Hi Lacey, I just realized I didn't answer. We are on the list for the first one. She is supposed to get back to us with a firm reservation #.

Your spa plans sound heavenly!

Happy Friday!


Basket....you mentioned spa??!!! Do love those kind of days!! Is your hubby going, too?


Sue...you can do this! Think "Disney"!!! And hopefully when you return, you'll have a new house.


Koh....Poly! Poly! Poly!






Miss...you're whale-watching experience sounds less than desirable


Trish...like your "unpacking" idea! Sounds easy! I can't rest until everything is OUT of each suitcases.


Jenn..... when you said "typos are due to wine" I literally laughed out loud


Chimo...sound like your younger son is right on track Know that's a relief for you.


Wookie... for quiet!!! Maybe it will stay that way for a while


Shelia...I'll be waiting on that discount for sure! Anything is better than what Disney sent to us. Can't believe they wasted the paper and postage


What to do today???? Maybe pool, but grocery shopping first
Back to reading!
Heather

Hi Wookie

Yes, the Red Serge is worn by RCMP members at dress functions. My Dad was an RCMP Officer, and he wore his Red Serge to my wedding , (Aug 23 ,1991) I agree it is very handsome! and I also love the Marine Corp Dress Blues uniform! I had a boyfriend when I was in HS that I went to the Marine Corp dress ball with, and he wore his Dress Blues -- very handsome indeed!



I think I've managed to talk my DS17 (Andrew) into going airforce too instead of Army! Many more opportunities for learning a trade, and better pay as well as better working conditions!
He's looking at Air Structures Technician, the person who works on the outside of the plane/ much like an autobody worker on a car.

I am very happy he's more sure about his future, it's less stressful because I sure do worry about Joshua.....He's my oldest, but always my little boy in my heart and I only want the best and success and happiness for my boys!

I agree with you about Kidani, the plusses are starting to outweigh the club level perk.....I think I'd be ok with the switch, I DO love AKL very much, and it's sister resort would be just as fantastic, I'm sure!

Sue: We've been fortunate, we've gotten lots of rain over the last few weeks. Hopefully you'll get some too! That's alot of days for no rain, and a definite worry in the kooteny's with the wild fire risks! Personally, I hate extreme heat as much as I hate extreme cold! I like mild temps...which is why I usually prefer Disney in Jan/Feb so I'm not melting!

I so wish I could be in WDW in the near future, I have that ache in my heart daily missing it! Why does it have to be so far away
Why do I live so far away?? LOL
Jan 2015 can't come soon enough for me!

Happy Friday My friends!!!

Marie: I love that picture! OMG you got married in 1993?? Were you a child bride?? No really, that is a super sweet picture. Thanks for sharing! I really wish You could be at Disney sooner than 2015 too. That is way too long to wait.

Heather: Yes, it was rather hilarious last night while typing, however this morning I felt a wee bit green!

SueM: Sorry you had a nightmare, I have suffered from them my whole life and can only seem to go a few nights at time without one. Hugs!


We made it home in one piece. Lots of driving today I still have to post a pic, will work on it now! Daddy and his girls, with a little bling on their hats.

Thanks Melissa! I gotta say though, getting around that city was a task and a half! We took the van and went to find a restaurant we had seen on Diners Drive ins and Dives, and boy...it turned into quite a fiasco! After many wrong turns, cars honking, cutting off people in traffic circles, and sweaty palms we got to the diner. Only to find out it only opened from 6am - 3 pm! And yes I am laughing now but it was not funny at the time! It was public transport after that for sure.

I said to DH, 'real life' non Disney travel is way too much work for me!!

Ugh, sorry you had to through that! Yeah the city is not like most, the streets seem to start and stop and go in circles. It's definitely not an easy city to navigate.

I agree, Disney travel is the way to go, jump on a boat, monorail or bus and you magically get to where you want to be

Jen - That pic is so stinking cute!

Janet - I saw you scheduled an August trip. So sad we will just miss you!

Hi to all my lovely RC peeps I'm way too far out of the loop to really catch up, but I hope you are all fairing well

Jen I love your picture!!! (And also not because I'm from Mass and a huge Red Sox fan)

Glad you had a nice trip to Boston! So sorry we couldn't meet up. Between my NKOTB concert and our friends visiting from Texas, we have been B-U-S-Y! But, our friends from Texas told us today that they are moving back home!!!!!! Even better, they put an offer on a house 2 streets behind us!!! we are so happy they will be close again!!

Oh yeah, we don't drive in Boston. We park in the same spot down there all the time and then just use public transport or walk. It's an awful city to drive in.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Ok so when I got the ring in the mail today I couldn't wait to give it to DH...



So instead of at Poly on our anniversary, it turned into a birthday/early anniversary gift. But the important thing is, he loves it and thinks it's one of the most thoughtful gifts he's gotten. :-) although it's a little snug so we may have to resize it a bit. Just hope it doesn't mess the engraving up too much...

Warning: Excuse-filled preface to late multi-quoting:

I know you all know what it's like before a long trip. There are all those loose ends that have to be tied up and all the stuff you have to pretty much wait till the last week or so to do. Also, DD had the week off so we've been doing more activities. Today is wash day (with our 15 year-old washer that was used only 6 months - more on that below) and I have to trim all the bushes before it rains and then DD and I will pack the clothing later. The dreaded toiletries were done last week so we've been spreading the pain out.

I love all the great wedding, baseball and water feature photos!

Miss...LOVE that Gremiln picture! and love that movie and Kook, your Gremlin pic (cars) cracks me up!! I immediately thought about the AMC Pacer, too Hideous automobiles, they were!
Ahhh, love the photo of my favorite lakeside retreats. Pooler would be perfect for a sick washer dump-o-rama! You crack me up I have a sick dryer I'll leave on the side of the road, too. If Bill doesn't get it, it will make a mighty fine home for some raccoons. Maybe the Turtle Man (LIVE ACTION!) could pick it up? Oh, he lives in KY, darn.

We ended up with two sets because the house came with a set and we already had a set that never ended up used much because every place we moved into seemed to already have a set (lots of military moves). So we've got 4 cars and 4 W/Ds. I should mention that none of them are on the front lawn - yet

But we are going against our better judgement and going to go for Labor Day. I think this will be the perfect little fix to get us through to next Feb. So what is the departure time on TUESDAY????
I understand about the kids' schedules. We'll probably be in Boca next trip.

Nope, the repairman didn't show up. He was supposed to show between 12-2 and I have very little patience for tardiness so when 2:30 rolled around, I canceled. DD and I wasted half a day waiting for him and I was reluctant to call in the first place since this company was unknown to me.

I said the exact same thing about washing them in the creek. The new one they sent over broke after the first week. I went without a washer for 6 weeks. Having to explain to the appliance guys that I didn't want it fixed but wanted a NEW replacement for the week-old bust one was an interesting discussion since the two guys didn't speak English and my French phrases were severely limited. It was the ultimate game of Pictionary amidst mountain-sized piles of dirty clothes.

When we moved to the UK, I told my hubs it was absolutely mandatory for us to have a REAL dryer. My clothes-horse was promptly thrown into the garage never to be used again.
Love your National Lampoon European Dryer story! Europe is also famous for their utter FAIL shower designs. Frequently no shower doors or even a curtain and those hand-held sprayers with no mounting fixture above your head and if it is mounted to the wall, it's made for those under 5'

I'm sorry, but WDW restricts the discount to US Military active and retired personnel:

Members of the U.S. Military: Get Great Rates at Select Disney Resort Hotels in Summer and Early Fall 2013!

This offer is for active or retired members of the U.S. military, including the National Guard, Reservists and the U.S. Coast Guard. Valid Military ID will be required upon check-in.

I immediately noticed that there wasn't a dryer! Nothing really mattered after that observation. The base housing ended-up very nice and even came equipped with a new full-sized washer/dryer

I know they look cool, and have a lot of cool features. The problem is when they go down. Samsung and LG parts come from Korea, and they can be hard/impossible to get.
I never thought about that so thanks for the advice. I guess if we were stationed in Korea again, that wouldn't be a problem. For now, we just switched the sick washer with a 15-year-old small one that I bought in a panic 6 months before we moved to Korea. Our first-ever washer died, so we just needed one for a short time before moving to Korea. The washer was put in storage and then went through 4 more moves and hadn't been used up until yesterday. I was amazed it works!

I love seeing the Pacer on the Backstage Tour at DHS. I think you should get a nice, juicy Pinto Cruising Van that you can stay overnight at FW in. WILD WAGON STUFF! If this van's a rockin'...

Kook enjoying your Gremlin? Lol!
It'll be great when it's all over and you can enjoy it. We'd love to see a before/after photo!

The old/new washer doesn't seem to have any Gremlins - so far, so good! I avoided a repair and a panic purchase.

Sorry you've got the funkies. And, you lost out in the early morning posting race by almost an hour to Janet. I know you can do better next time
