    Dani: I can totally understand what you are feeling, and I am sending you lots of hugs :grouphug: I am so sorry your family is going through this.

    Minnie & Sjs314: big hugs to you both too.:grouphug:


    Good morning to Melissa, Candace, Pas, Janet, Wookie, Lacey, Padawans, Marie, Miss, and Iheart. Sorry to anyone I missed. Have to get DD8 ready to head off to girl guide camp for the weekend tonight, all the kiddos ok to go to school today. DH is on meds now too, and boy his snoring at night is driving me to the looney bin.:crazy2: Need lots of this today.:coffee:

    Good morning RC family :goodvibes

    padawans - so glad guest services made the situation right! You knew you were right, but it is always nice to hear it AND to be compensated :thumbsup2

    Wookie - glad the pharmacy got you all your meds. Nope no Fudgie the whale, because the little ones are gluten free, they cant have crunchies, so we did a small fudge cake and got the kids ice cream cups with sprinkles....everyone was still happy :) Enjoy your lunch today, sounds yummy!!!!

    Dani :hug: I totally understand where you are coming from. I was in an abusive relationship for most of high school :faint: I always knew if I stayed with him one of us would end up dead. I am so sorry your cousin was not able to get out, it is just heart breaking. Hold your kiddos close and know that you are a stronger woman for all you have been through ::yes::

    Shelia - What is it with these abusive men :confused3 I guess in the long run, it makes us all stronger women :grouphug: Hope you got that first cup of coffee in.

    Jen - I hope you get DD's stuff ready and still find a little bit of time to enjoy your :coffee: and can maybe get a bit of rest (I know you need it after the snoring :p)

    Hope everyone has a great day!
    Melissa

    Good morning!! :flower3:

    My DH snores so badly on a nightly basis, that if we didn't have a fan on in our room, I wouldn't be able to sleep.


    Good Morning!! :flower3:
    Well, only half my meds, but half is better than none.
    Sounds like a yummy night!! The DH is going to be at home most of the day learning how to work in the office. Hopefully, he doesn't tell me I can't get it. If he does, we'll get it this weekend.

    I'm off to get JM on the bus and then take a nap before getting school work done.

    You are going to LOVE the cruise Christine!!! Danimal was so opposed to going last year, but this year he can't wait to go. Isn't that funny?

    I think if Daniel ends up loving the beach on the cruise we will end up at BC next year :rotfl: He will not go to the beach here. He refuses.

    I'm glad they acknowledged their mistake and made it right! You would think they would be tired of having to fix messes and address the problem with the CMs. :rolleyes2

    You know, my other cousin is like this right now. He is keeping his kids from his father because his wife convinced him that his dad owes him the world. He thinks that his dad should be leaving him his house, when in reality he doesn't deserve a darn thing from him. It's very sad when kids let their spouse rule their lives.

    :hug: Much love to you my dear friend. I will be texting you today!

    :hug:

    I know you understand the pain, Sheila. I think of you and Christine every day. You are both incredibly strong. I am sorry you had such a terrible experience. Abusive relationships are a never ending nightmare. I'm so happy you were able to get out of it.

    How is your family doing Jen? Hopefully hanging in there. Still praying for you all.

    SO happy you were able to end it. We are a lucky bunch. My heart breaks for those who aren't as lucky.

    I almost had to suffocate my aunt with a pillow in August because of her snoring! I am a VERY light sleeper. The slightest noise will prevent me from sleeping. My aunt would start snoring when she was still awake! :furious: This is how I felt every night going to bed lol

    Good afternoon, ladies. :)

    Jen: How are you guys doing? :grouphug:

    I_Heart: That is so wonderful about the kiddo's art contest! :worship: When does the State portion of the competition start? All fingers crossed for 'em. :goodvibes

    Melissa: How's the hubs doing today, better I hope? Happy belated to your oldest!

    Let me just say, I adore this -- wholeheartedly ADORE! :rotfl:

    Wookie: Still getting that chicken parm for lunch? How'd I miss ANOTHER birthday?! Happy birthday to your son! :goodvibes

    Dani: Sending my best thoughts your way. Sorry your family is going through such a rough time. :grouphug: Don't ever apologize for "being a downer" -- it's our job to listen through good and bad. ::yes::

    We have such a group of amazingly strong and inspiring women. I'm lucky to be in such good company.

    :grouphug:

    :hug:

    Did you get to enjoy that cuppa? I think I might need another. :scratchin

    Janet: What's yours and Sam's favorite Disney film? I'm really thinking it just might be Brave after seeing it again. :thumbsup2 (The scenery really is so spot on.)

    :hug: to our lovely Jeanette and Candace and Ginny and Kook and Marie and Lacey and DznyCrzy11 and last but certainly not least, our Linda (just where is that lady, anyhow?... we need to equip her with a tracking device.) And to anyone I miss, I blame it on needing another cup of coffee desperately. :coffee:

    And a warm welcome to Alison! :cheer2:

    I'm so happy to be home with my kids today. Since the NYC school bus strike, Daniel has been home most days. His school is so far away. He's been home all week. He is going Monday, though. I need a break from him. :rotfl:

    Lily is totally my kid. She would spend the entire day on my lap reading trip reports and looking at photos of Disney. She loves to look at cruise photos. We spent most of this morning doing it!

    Thank you, I hope so as well. Luckily the site of blood doesn't bother me, they are just more annoying than anything else.

    Thank you

    It really is sad. Especially for this aunt, who only has the one son left. I don't know, maybe the son's wife blames her for not getting out of the marriage earlier than she did and her hubby having to go through what he did with the aunt's ex.

    I've had the same feelings before about my DH and fil (when we've gone on vacations with the in laws where we have shared a room). I've had times with my DH where he snored so bad that even with our big loud fan in our room, he has kept me up. Then when I would get up to head to a class, he would stop snoring.

    Thank you, but you didn't miss it. His birthday was on the 8th.

    I agree :thumbsup2 :grouphug: This thread is the main reason I can't stay away from the DIS.


    I have some news ladies!! Gues who's might be going to WDW in March??


    Yep that's right................the DH, fil, and maybe the mil............but not me or my DSs.:furious::furious::furious:
    They are having an appliance convention at the CSR and the fil has decided that he really wants them to go. I am so mad, I could slap all three of them. They've been trying to keep it a secret, but the fil (who's having big memory issues) said something about a vendor giving them a discount for the FL training. I guess he thinks I'm too stupid to remember that it was being held at WDW.

    I forgot to answer this earlier.....
    No I didn't. :( The DH had to run a service call this morning before being trained on how the office works. As he was coming home, he stopped by Sonic and brought me a bacon cheeseburger /w fries and a Dr. Pepper. I was actually eating it, when the fil talked about the FL training. The DH got uncomfortable (which let me know they were hiding it from me) and kept saying 'I love you'. I finally just looked at him and said, "you remember that movie we saw where a person was killed with an ear of corn?" Then I pulled a fry out of the fry box, held it up, and said, "this is your ear of corn."

    PADAWANS: thank you for the great DL advice! I guess if it will save me $200 a night, I could forgo club level! I really want to stay at DLH for the cool slide/ pool and great views/ fun atmosphere. I am sure we could find a breakfast cheaper than $200 for the 3 of us, and I could order some pop for the room -- I'm sure we won't be in the room too much anyway! If I stay off site, it's between double tree suites (rated no. 3 on trip advisors) and embassy suite/ or even a paradise pier suite if it was affordable! I am thinking of flying into John Wayne airport on a Sunday, staying off site that first night, check in on Monday Feb 3, 2014 do DLH for 3 nights of Disney, then move to Embassy suites or double tree on Thursday, do universal that day, then Friday do knotts berry farm and depart on Saturday from JW (SNA)
    Maybe if I just do a standard Disney land hotel room without club it might make it doable

    Dani I'm very excited for you. You will love DCL. I'm planning that exact trip for Oct 2014. 7 day cruise plus the F&W. I hope you make a trip report. Just waiting for Dcl to release the second half of 2014.

    Marie Your plans sound great. I might be doing something very similar to that in Sept if we can't afford Orlando. It's cheaper for us to go to Southern California. I feel like I can put together a really nice vacation in 5 or 6 days. I need 10 days minimum in Florida. You know how it is long flight and time change.
    The breakfast buffets will run you around 20.00 per person, but it's a much better breakfast than Cl. You will spend a lot of time in the parks. Everything is so close, and it's so easy to go back and forth from hotel to parks.

    I heart Congrats to you kids.

    MM I have to go through guest services to make any changes so I think I'll just leave it alone. The only thing I may do is drop a couple of nights at Wl and book something else. I really like my multi resort stays.

    She basically let me book a BB for Sept. I think I could have done that it May, but you never know. She did say the BB will run to June, based on past experience I didn't want to take the chance. I may have some trust issues.:headache:

    Hello to everyone else.

    wookie I am SO sorry that they are going without you. I can't believe they've been hiding it from you! :(

    padawans I will DEFINITELY be posting a TR of this trip! I can't wait. I think Lily is the most excited though. :rotfl:

    :lmao: OMG that was too funny!!

    I'm hoping they are just "talking" about it. I know they are hiding it because they know I'll be mad about it and I've already told them and the DH he can't go to any conferences at WDW if I can't go. The DH came into our room and asked me why I was mad at him while I was doing school work. When I told him, he said, "well it's not like we're going to Disney World." I said, "I'm going to let you get away with saying something stupid like that, and me not throw the closest thing I can get into my hand just this once. The conference is at Coronado Springs, which is on Disney World property. Technically you are going to Disney World." I swear he was acting like someone who knew nothing about Disney World and thought the Magic Kingdom was all there is to Disney World.

    I'm sure I missed something, but why can't you go? Does it interfere with school?

    Oh no!

    I have to say that I have gone to Orlando on business twice in the past few years. I didn't take my family either time because truly, I didn't stay long enough to make any time of vacation out of it.
