    Sorry you won't be able to cheer Diana on :hug: but you'll make up for it with trips later in the year. Isn't there still some scouting to be done for Oct 2013 ;)?

    Elin - how are Bob's eyes...still doing well I hope,and the rest of him too of course. :rotfl:

    So far I'm booked with my BFF and her family Oct 6-12th. Her hubby was diagnosed with lung cancer so I'm really hoping they'll be able to make this trip, as they will need it. They have two little boys who will be 7 & 5 (the 5 year old is my Godson.) We'll be at AKV. Then I rented points from David's (still hoping nothing goes wrong) for BWV Oct 14-20th. So now I'm just waiting for the 7 month mark to see if I can get in there for my two homeless days :rotfl: that I have. Then we have to figure out if we'll be staying longer.

    I'll be at Disney from 10/12 - the 20th. Unless we have problems with our airline tickets we're pretty good with that.

    Dang - winter is here! :cold:

    Will be spending my Saturday at the airport, then on a 5-1/2 hr flight, then in a car for the drive to Puyallup, Washington! It's going to be a LONG day! :laughing:

    I walk (rather than take the train at ATL airport) from the main terminal to Terminal A. There is African art (sculptures) and huge pictures of wildlife all along the walls. Makes me feel like I am entering AKL!! :cloud9: (reality will set in later when I land in Seattle!! :rotfl2:)


    I hope we are still planning a Birthday Brunch on 10/13, Miss Diana..... :rolleyes1

    Good morning from Puyallup, Washington! :wave2: I am still on Eastern time - up at 4am! :laughing:

    LONG flight and of course the guy in front of me was reclined the entire way (5-1/2 hours)! :headache: My knees are cursing him this morning!! :rotfl:

    I haven't seen this area in the daylight yet. Will get our first look at the Base this afternoon.

    Happy Sunday! :goodvibes

    I'm home from my week in Tacoma. Saw the sun one day of 7. My body is craving sunshine and now it's cloudy and going to rain in ATL for the next couple days!!

    Ft Drum next weekend. That's a short trip - 4 days. I will be at Ft Campbell for 2-1/2 weeks next month. That's going to be a long time away from home. :sad1:

    I'm still trying to figure out when to sneak a WDW trip in (before Sept/Oct) -- I think I am having WDW withdrawals and it doesn't feel good! :rotfl:

    Happy weekend! :goodvibes

    Update..checked the last time I was here....the date coincides with family issues:( I post on FB as an escape....things are better here...had to do with DS18 :( Laura has been a saint listening to me even though she has been so busy with work:(

    Looking forward to seeing her next weekend...:( Running isnt therapy enough these days! This too shall pass....kids arent teenagers forever....

    I hope everyone here and their loved ones are doing well, feel bad I have been out of touch while I have dealt with my issues.
    Funny thing is I was so excited to see 2011 go....that is how the Dec trip started with Laura and I....good riddance! lol Couldnt wait til 2012...what a surprise! lol One day at a time....

    YES...BIRTHDAY BRUNCH is still on, I am waiting to 7 mth mark to make my reservations...Im still going to do the Thurs to Monday stay...not sure who is coming yet! lol
    I am escaping to DL for the Half over Labor day...I want that Coast2Coast medal and I know it aint happening next year!
    Exciting news for me....funny how back in 09 I got a wild hair up my...and thought I could WALK the Inaugural W & D in 2010...which was awesome experience to share with some of you:)))
    Princess will be my 6th Half...I can run now with some walk intervals, but I was selected to do a special meet with Jeff Galloway next Friday in Epcot before it opens for a 2 mile run, it was posted at Disneyparks Blog...

    It is about time you made an appearance on the Boards!!! :laughing: If "life" would just quit getting in the way, right?!! :upsidedow

    You've come a LONG way baby since 2009!! :rotfl:

    While I was way out west in Washington, all the Disney commercials were for Disneyland -- I'm only used to seeing the WDW commercials! ;)

    The 7-month mark for the Jamborini trip will be here in just a few short weeks! :woohoo: I'm still planning to do the Swolphin Food & Wine Classic AND the Jamborini trip, but Airtran will be "gone" by then (looks like late September is the last of the Airtran flights from ATL :sad1:) and right now Southwest is showing many locations from Atlanta -- but NOT Orlando??? :eek: (how can that be?!) :headache:

    I just checked on my airfare for this trip. We book on frequent flyer miles so we need to book early. However on the trip we had to cancel we had to pay a lot of money to get our miles back. Our flights are available, and if we have a problem this year, we'll have four months to use them again before they expire, so I think I'm going to book the airfare today! :banana:

    Ohmigosh! I ended up getting the flight I wanted and seats we wanted, but it ends up I got the last two rewards seats on that flight. I about had a panic attack when my computer froze up. I went to rebook them and they were gone! :scared1: But that was because I was holding them. It all worked out in the end, but I had a very stressful 20-30 mins trying to work it all out!

    Glad you got your air transportation all taken care of Alison! That is the one thing that would keep us from WDW this year, I am afraid. Our closest airports are over an hour away and are in DC, Baltimore and Richmond. The fares from all four of the airports has always been high, but now it is even worse. And with gas approaching $4 a gallon, driving is really not much of an option anymore. I looked into the Auto Train (which Bob and I loved back in 1996) but it is astronomical too! :sad2:

    :sad2: The Airtran/Southwest merger/buy-out/whatever-you-call-it has totally messed up the fares out of ATL. The lowest fare I can find ATL to MCO is $136 ONE WAY -- they're charging Delta fares. :mad: I already know for sure I'll be cutting back on the number of WDW trips!!


    Hey there, Brandi!! Glad to see you back here! We missed you! :hug:

    Laura, those prices are just not fair... :sad2:

    I missed all of you too, it is good to be home, but reality hit when I had to make my own bed this morning and get my own tea.... Ughh, I need to be pampered... :rolleyes1

    Approaching $4? :scratchin You don't live in CA! :eek:

    That's too bad. I know we wouldn't be going as often if we didn't have our miles from the credit cards. Flights for us are $600 each way and that is for coach!

    Make the bed? People still do that at home? :rolleyes1



















    :rotfl2:

    Welcome back to the rest of our worlds! Glad you're back! :flower3:
