It looks like you two had a nice trip , all in all , visiting with family as well.

CIAO and Italian kisses to everyone on here !!
It looks like some of you are having weather issues : stay safe !!
and it's nice to read about someone's vacation-planning !!!

Me ? Well it's nice to be able to come back to my "DIS-family" !!
We had some rough time , Dad was in hospital 3 times since this March - now he seems to feel better ...
My school ( and myself - as Coordinator-Tutor for the State Final Exams) has been called in Court at the end of June : "gossip" from a colleague told some parents ... ??? ... that papers / evaluations / final marks for the State degrees had been altered by my "teachers' team" ... Stressful days !! Still cannot understand the reason why THAT colleague made such a false accusation - but TAR ( Regional Administrative Court) has eventually stated that there was no fraud - so State Exams are now officially over , all my students have received
their ( VERY GOOD to EXCELLENT) degrees !!
Though my team and myself still are so sad and stressed out ...

Now the good news : I really wasn't hoping for this anymore ...
but it looks like we are going to come to US by end of July - will be staying at our beloved AKL , Jambo House , August 10-21 !!
Still it sounds like a DREAM - after the whole mess of the past months ...
fingers crossed it is true !!!

CIAO, Laura (and Marco!)

I'm glad you stopped by. Sorry for all that has been going on. Glad to hear your father is doing better.

Yay for your August trip!! We will all be crossing our fingers for you too!! We will miss you by one week this time -- we don't arrive until 8/27.

Tori says "hi!"

Of course I do! Did you not read my whole post? right there at the bottom


Bummer about the fireworks. There were too many near us, Conner wedged himself under the bed and got stuck.

Ciao Laura! Glad your dad is feeling better.

How sad a coworker would start something like that. Are they still working with you?

How wonderful your trip is still on!

Poor Conner. I bet thunder frightens him too.


More rain on the way today. Trees have now started falling all over the metro ATL area. No wind (thank goodness), but the ground is so saturated that it can't support some of the huge trees that have shallow root systems.

Dad is a real fighter , he is 89 now !! Still very lively , he writes technical books and goes "joggins" every day for an hour or more - sun or rain !!
One of those colleagues was dismissed - she will be brought to Court ( As result of the accusations / TAR etc. our school is loosing many new enrolments for the new school year...).
The other one will HAVE to work within my team - under my personal tutoring !!

I DO need a vacation !!!

Jambo House -- although we move to CSR - in their Business Class (think Club Level Lite!) for the last several nights of our vacation!

You will have a wonderful vacation, dear Laura & Marco, and hopefully we will catch up with you next time!

and CIAO!!!! So wonderful to see you on here, Laura! I am sorry your father has been ill again. And the stress over your exams must have been horrible. I cannot imagine what makes people do things like that. It only stirs up problems for everyone.

What FABULOUS news that you are coming to WDW and to AKL! I wish there was a way I could scoot down there to see you, but I will still be teaching and also headed to Boston to visit family and attend a teaching seminar. I know it will be a super trip for you and Marco.

It does. I've been known to change plans if thunder comes around, I don't like to leave him home alone when he's scared. He's my babe.

That's just terrible they would do something like that. I'm sorry you have to work directly with one of them.

Good morning Js & Ks!

Another rainy day here. Looks like Sunday will be a wash-out too.

We have a family friend visiting this weekend and we're having to figure out all these "indoor" activities. There are so many wonderful things to do outdoors -- but not in weather like this!

Looks like we'll be visiting Georgia Aquarium today. We were hoping to get to a Gwinnett Braves (the AAA club) at 5pm, but it's not looking good.


About the trees, Pam: besides the fact that these beautiful trees are falling, they are also doing major damage to cars, homes, power lines, roads. So far, thank goodness, I haven't heard about any deaths - that's another unfortunate consequence of these giants crashing to the ground.


Oh, well - back to thinking about our WDW trip to AKV in August!
