Good morning RCers! Hope Monday isn`t mundane!
I have a crazy week of driving around the great state of Maryland for dr appts for me and my girls so hoping this board will occupy the waiting room times!

I canceled all of my ADRs today for our canceled trip next week I am so bummed. I am really looking forward to next year, though! I need to choose a month already. It looks like I am going to have a hard time though because it seems state testing it spread through the entire month. I have to write in to school and have them give me the exact dates so I can start planning.
Awe! How sweet! I am so sorry to hear that you have to cancel your trip for next week.

Right now I'm playing the waiting game. I can't book the wedding 'til 8 months out so there isn't too much I can do in regards to the wedding. I just hope I'll be able to find a good officiant for October, the busiest wedding month. I'm having it on a Friday so I'm crossing my fingers I'll still be good. I also need to find a hair/makeup artist, but I think I'm going to wait 'til I have a date set in stone before I start browsing since there isn't much I can do without a date and time.

DFi and I have been looking at restaurants for our Disneymoon and he wants to try all the Japanese ones. We aren't going to make a lot of ADRs because I don't want to have to work around them throughout our whole vacation. I do know we are going to attempt to watch Wishes at Cali Grill. I'm going to stand up for myself this time. Though I am very appreciative that my gramma stood up for me and got us a nice view of Wishes. They were going to send us to another table far away when there were a few tables that weren't being used in some of the most perfect spots.

I'm thinking we will have our "reception" at The Wave. They seem to have a good variety of food that our families will like (and will accommodate an 18 person party). I know my fiance really wants that buffalo steak at Artist Point, but we felt the menu wouldn't be appealing to most of the family. Especially my picky-eater sister. The other option was renting a private room at the Cali Grill, but I don't think we would meet the minimum food and drink requirement. Nothing is set in stone yet.

That post was a lot longer than I thought it was going to be.

Still pretty much flat on my back exercising in bed, trying not to cough and taking short walks around the house attempting not to trip over the 2 puppies!!!

I know a few pages ago someone said they had some car rental codes but now I'm sorry to say I can not for the life of me remember who ... old and sick is not good! If you are reading this could you please pm me the info? Thank you!

Hope all the RC ladies have a wonderful day!

Since July I have had an Ulcer, my intestines were tangled (there was a big fancy word for this--but all I know is that I wanted to die), and shortly after they collapsed. I'm still not 100% right, and rely heavily on mashed potatoes, applesauce and cottage cheese. Anything else, I prepare myself to pay dearly for--but I'm tired of this running my life. Truthfully, I haven't gone to the follow up specialist that I'm supposed to because I'm stubborn. I'm sure I'll go as soon as my scripts run out.

I was so excited about going on the Dream for our anniversary, but after a couple trips to the ER, and missing work unpaid----we had to cancel I was so heartbroken, because after going thru all this mess, all I wanted to do was get away. My work isn't exactly ideal, and the longer I'm there, people show their true colors, and it's wearing on me. So I saved as many pennies as I could, and waited for a FL resident rate.... that didn't happen

HOWEVER... there was a Magic leaving out of Miami for 4 days instead of 3 that matched with our approved time off, and we got an amazing FL resident rate on it!!! We're going to see the brand new Magic!! Just pray that they get her all fixed up in time for November 6th!!! Of course it took me days of research and back and forth to find my "perfect" room (out of the available ones). I'm still very much a changer at heart!!

Also!! I went to the Vinylmation event in September and my friend and I had a YC-CL room for one night.... we were upgraded to an AMAZING suite!! It was beautiful. That is my "home"--I just love the YC so much.

I have been on a little more as we're preparing for our cruise. I wish I had more time to keep up around here. I miss all of you very very much and think of you often!!

Love, Pixie Dust, and Happy Changing!!
SOOO Sorry to hear about your medical issues! There is nothing worse than feeling ill, and I can only imagine how hard it was to surrender your trip. Very happy you were able to find a great rate for the Magic, though -- fantastic second choice, IMHO!

It has been so long I don't even know where to begin.... okay.. yes I do, I am planning a trip for August

Things were so hectic last year that we did not make it to our beloved Disney. I could barely look at a commercial without crying. After we realized that we would be paying for my son's college out of pocket we had to cancel our trip. On top of this, we were dealing with health issues with my both of my parents.

Fortunately, things are looking up and my DH said to me "you better start planning for August" So.... here I am, back home and ready for some serious cha cha changgginnggg with my favorite changlings. So....What did I miss while I was gone??? Who is our current queen?

So glad to be back.
Also sorry to hear about your parents. Thinking positive thoughts!!!

ONE DAY!!!!!




We had a nice quiet weekend. I finished the rest of our laundry. Yesterday I baked 6 dozen orange cookies, but had to toss the first dozen out. Silly me thought it was a great idea to cook them on wax paper. Today, we ate lunch at my sister's house for her birthday and the white chocolate raspberry bundt cake was really good. My sister confirmed that they will be moving out of the DFW area. She is looking at Washington DC or Denver. Her allergies are just bothering her too much to stay here. When we got home, I made my lunches for the week. I made one Italian seasoned boneless thin pork chop per day, with Le Cellier's mushroom risotto. Now I just have to hope that the DH doesn't get into the garage frig and eat it himself. Well I'm off to watch the 4th episode of Downton Abbey's season 4. I know it's not on in the states, but I have my ways.
DC or Denver - both have some great pros and cons for your sister! Just a warning - I live near DC and my allergies are AHHHHHHH! Great allergist has helped me survive!

VERY excited to read wedding plans! I find myself randomly visiting the DIS Wedding planning board just for fun. We wanted a Disney wedding but it was too hard (and expensive) to finagle around DH's military time. MAYBE a VR down the road, though.

Watch out for those puppies! After my hip surgery, my little corgi was constantly under foot. I felt bad because I knew he was just worried but AHHHHH, I kept tripping over him!

Hello ladies! Peeking in between frantic emailing sessions with Disney Custom Cakes. Why did I just realize TODAY that I'd need to get a birthday cake? Seriously.

to all of you and it's so nice to see these new faces (avatars anyway ) and all these familiar old faces popping back in again. Well, not OLD but you know what I mean... don't hurt me.

I'm following along quietly with all of your shenanigans and changes and ... the whole, crazy-typical RC lot.

Linda: That was me... will send you a quick note over on FB.

Oh, I'm behind alrready and the thread hasn't hit double digits yet!!


A very Happy Birthday to Kook’s DD!!

Deena, so, so sorry about all the medical issues my friend. Hoping that the worst is over. And Congrats on the anniversary cruise! So happy to see you back on the RC thread. You've been missed.

Jen, Disney so missed a great opportunity to gain a terrific, knowledgeable Disney Loving Mom on the panel. Their loss.

Sue, great reno pix... every since you talked about your reno in the summer, I so want to do something to my bathroom and basement! Course that means I have to clean out the basement...yikes!

Welcome back StepDisney, sorry to hear about your parents health issues. Our kids costs us so much, don’t they (guess they're worth it ) And for an August trip….when you know what you are doing/staying, post your dates and I can add you to the RC (ever changing) Trip list.

Hi Heather!! Is school out already?? Missed you!

A big to everyone else! Crazy busy day (what's new?), hope to catch up later. So happy to see so many of our RCers find our new home!! And welcome to our newcomers!

Are you still doing 9th grade??? Ugh college tuition, I feel you, I recently returned for my Masters in Nursing cha-ching. I've done my bestest to keep our thread happy and ever changing, but you are very missed...with you and Kook checking in, all is good. So for the RCer with the most recent ch-ch-changes is Candace (AKA mousemommy) I am so happy you are here, you made my night !!! Sorry, for being such a sap! But to me...you will always be the Queen, I'm just helping continue the legacy
PAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My HOMIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really mised you guys (HI KOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I am teaching 7th grade. It is my favorite grade but my goodness....7th graders are a piece of work. Meanwhile, I have a 7th grader. We were going to try to squeeze in a small trip this summer but my DS was accepted into an engineering program with a summer bridge and the promise of scholarship and internship but it meant that he had to go to school in the summer. It was a GREAT program. We thought that we could squeeze in at the beginning of August but then we received the first tuition bill. I am going to book our trip for this August now so that we can get it paid off ASAP!!! I need a vacation. Right now I am praying for SNOW....

You have done such a wonderful job keeping the RCers happy and keeping a home for us. You are NOT a sap. You are so genuine. (I'm sitting here misty eyed). Now.... help me because I've already switched from AoA to Poly to PO (I've never booked a moderate, please tell me it will be okay) I loved Pop but am not sure I like any of the themes at the moderates. So....I'm booked at PO and I know I am about to change soon. Back to cha cha changing....

The odd thing is that she has been tested and said that she's not allergic to anything. I think my mom said today that they were going to do some thyroid testing.

ah, so your calling me old?? That's it young lady....to the RC penalty box (the Cinderella Suite) for you.

It's been one of those days that started out one way and with one phone call, went in a total different level of bleh. I ended up not going in to work today. Just as I was getting ready to walk out the door, my mom called. She had a call from her cousin or her husband (who lives in the town that my grandmother's nursing home is in and is the first to call if she has an emergency since they are close). My grandmother had had a stroke and it wasn't sounding good. They were just waiting on the chopper to take her into Fort Worth. My DH and I were parking just as the chopper landed, and saw them put her in an ambulance to take into the ER. She's in the ICU now, but thanks to some shot they gave her (some 3 letter acronym that is like Draino for clearing clots out of veins and starts with a T) is doing much better than they think she would have been doing without the shot. Now we're just waiting on tests results. When they first got her to an ER room, she was able to tell us what my cousin's name was, and my name. When I asked her if she recognized my DH she said, "well of course I know my David. You get over here and give Mama a hug." He was the only person, she asked for a hug from. I just laughed and told my DH, "she I told you she loves you most of all."

Thank you. My parents both had a string of health issues. My dad was diagnosed with cancer went through surgery and is doing great. He then had surgery on his eyes. He is an insulin dependent diabetic and we watch him very carefully. I must say, he is doing GREAT right now. My mom had thyroid issues and is going to have surgery on her back. They are taking good care of each other and my sister's and I are making sure they are okay.

I canceled all of my ADRs today for our canceled trip next week I am so bummed. I am really looking forward to next year, though! I need to choose a month already. It looks like I am going to have a hard time though because it seems state testing it spread through the entire month. I have to write in to school and have them give me the exact dates so I can start planning.
Hang in there. I know how hard it is to cancel a trip. Sending you a "know how you feel" hug.

OK. Who said I was not going to make it past Monday without changing??? Well, you were right....and this is a major one....

We have moved our trip from August to April!!!!!!! we are now 4/24/14 - 5/3/14 at WL CL!!!!!

I can't even believe it!!! ADRS need to be done in 7 days!!!!!

For many reasons, April will work a lot better for us and we get to Disney sooner!! I also bought our airfare, got a good deal!!!

Now I have to pay off this trip in 1/2 the time, but DH said he will work extra to pay for it, because he wouldn't give up CL.

Off to make a new ticker....

Now I'm just praying that the mine train is done by then!!!

It's funny you say that: I grew up in Maryland and had some major sinus issues. I was tested for allergies and nothing popped... fast forward 15 years and we move back to Maryland. I had been having issues when we lived in California, but they got 100x worse when we got to MD. Tested for allergies AGAIN and I had TWENTY-SEVEN triggers, 20 of which are outdoor. My allergist thinks that I was SO hypersensitive when I was tested as a teen it messed up the results. I'm been on shots for *thinks* 18 months now and it's GREAT! I was on 2 allergy meds, a nasal spray, and a rescue inhaler... now, I just have the inhaler and haven't used it in a year!

I hope your sister gets an answer - I can sympathize with her and hope she gets the freedom of a clear nose!

It's been one of those days that started out one way and with one phone call, went in a total different level of bleh. I ended up not going in to work today. Just as I was getting ready to walk out the door, my mom called. She had a call from her cousin or her husband (who lives in the town that my grandmother's nursing home is in and is the first to call if she has an emergency since they are close). My grandmother had had a stroke and it wasn't sounding good. They were just waiting on the chopper to take her into Fort Worth. My DH and I were parking just as the chopper landed, and saw them put her in an ambulance to take into the ER. She's in the ICU now, but thanks to some shot they gave her (some 3 letter acronym that is like Draino for clearing clots out of veins and starts with a T) is doing much better than they think she would have been doing without the shot. Now we're just waiting on tests results. When they first got her to an ER room, she was able to tell us what my cousin's name was, and my name. When I asked her if she recognized my DH she said, "well of course I know my David. You get over here and give Mama a hug." He was the only person, she asked for a hug from. I just laughed and told my DH, "she I told you she loves you most of all."
I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother. I will keep her in my thoughts!!!
