    Janet Funny you should ask....Bob said to me this am that he saw a commercial for Disney so I took that opportunity to talk up the Poly. I showed him pics of the view from the Fiji Longhouse both The Luau Cove side and the Marina side, we discussed 3rd floor vs 1st floor patio, doing the Spirit of Aloha Show and watching the Fireworks from the beach. We also talked about maybe going early November instead of Oct. The Poly is a GO! :banana:

    That is the best news I have had all week. I swear I could buy your both a huge slice of cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory!! I didn't want to get the DH's hopes up, but I showed him the suites anyway. He agreed that the LM was a little on the girly side. We both like the Nemo rooms since they are the closest to the laundry (or at least where I assume the laundry is based on Google Earth and compairing AoA to the PC) and the pool. He loved the size of the bathroom in the bedroom and thought the boys would love the shower curtain with the sharks on it we kept coming across in pictures. Plus he loves the boys being in a separate room than us. There is the added bonus of the boys being able to sleep in their own bed. They are getting to that age where they might rather do that if it's an option.


    oh, you have no idea. When Joey was about 2 months old, my dad's mom passed away. Since Joey had been a preemie and her funeral was in January, myself, the DH and Joey didn't go to the graveside. Everyone else in my family (mom, brother, and sister) got back, but I couldn't find my dad at the family lunch at the church. I finally got to my mom and she said when they got to the graveside my dad saw the newly installed headstone for one of his aunts. She had passed and they didn't tell him about it because they didn't think he needed to know. I could go on and on about them, but that's way in the past.

    I'm sorry, I am just getting so depressed about this I had to come and tell. DD6 has been having a very sore tummy all day today. Doctor just happens to call at 8:50 pm, (so nice of her, not our regular dr.) and says DD8 throat swab was positive again, and DD6 has tested positive for a heavy growth of strep too. Myself and DD4 were clear as of Tuesday' swab, although DD4 has gone to bed with a fever again and horrible cough now.

    So meds were called in for DD6, and I have to give them every 8 hours for 10 days!!:eek: So the poor mite just got up to pee and I surprised her with her first dose. She was not happy to say the least. :headache: I did catch DD6 and DD4 sharing drinks again today too.:headache::headache:

    This is getting to me...and I cannot imagine how parents of truly ill children would be able to do it. It must just be soooo hard. Thanks for listening again.

    I just keep looking forward to May, and the hope that please please please we will be better by then!!!:upsidedow

    Hi Janet, Ginny, Wookie and everyone else!:flower3:

    I know I have been MIA today but wanted to give you HUGE HUGS Jen!!! I am so sorry the girls are so sick :( the meds will end up working into a routine that works, somehow. We are down to 4 meds a day with DS but occasionally have to add in others and timing is critical. Just remember it is for 10 days and hopefully the last round for a while.

    HUGS, HUGS, HUGS!!! Being a mom is so hard sometime but we are all here for you to cry, vent, scream, or just need some love :)

    I'm sure you have thought of it but Make sure to change toothbrushes 24 hrs after starting antibiotics. I have kids also change again after a few days later. Sometimes that's how kids get reinfected.

    It's really easy. You have to book the room and it will be linked with yours but each reservation has its own number. Once it's booked, you don't have to do anything with it. You don't have to have the same types of rooms even (not sure about the same resort).
    glad you are feeling better! I agree about the Cars suites. That's exactly what I would book!
    Whooooooohooooooo!
    oh honey! I am so sorry! Hang in there!
    Melissa you are such a good mommy! How is Steven doing with the GF diet?

    Hi RC family!!! I won't even to try to catch up right now. Today was a school meeting, lots of errands, a haircut for me :) and karate. This weekend is papers and packing!!!! I am so excited that I will be in WDW in less than a week! I asked DH if he knew what I was looking forward to most....he cracked up and said "not having to cook" and I added, "and no dishes" LOL!!! Sometimes it's the little things in life ;)

    I'll catch tomorrow for sure!!!!

    :goodvibesMelissa Soooo excited for you! Less than a week till WDW! Lucky you....have fun and remember to share it with your poor family back here wishing we where right there to share it with you! :goodvibes I'll have to live through you :p

    PAS sorry to hear you're sick too! So much sickness going around! :crazy2: get well ASAP! My chest, cough, throat, ears.....it's all hurting right now! :scared: hope it doesn't last long! It's not fun at all :(

    Wookie: I've heard some good things about El Dorado Royale in the Mexican Riviera. My hubby doesn't really like the thought of a Mexico trip, but maybe one day i'll talk him into trying there!:thumbsup2

    Dani.... Now Disney I adore! Vegas?.......I'm not sure..... I've never been, but I admit night life and casinos doesn't really do much to interest me. However, some of those shows like Cirque Solei "O", or The Beatles... I would like to see that!

    Linda :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2 on new Puppy love! So happy to hear DH got a service Dog to take care of him!, your fur baby is adorable, I bet! :flower3: sure hope you can get some pics up of him....love the name :thumbsup2

    Sheila: :thumbsup2 woohoo! pixiedust: for POLY! Can't wait to hear how you like it :)

    My DL plans are a go in my head, now to try and save the 5K or so I'll need by next Feb! That's the challenge :crazy2: but, I'll definitely be trying! :thumbsup2

    I am sorry. :hug: It was hard enough going through that with one child, let alone multiple.

    That's actually a really good idea.


    I had never heard of it, until we booked our first WDW trip with the DSs. For that trip, I used a TA and she had talked about it. DH wouldn't go on a trip right now to Mexico either. He doesn't think it secure enough.

    You can do it!! I already have my Disney pig back up to almost $100. I have only been saving since Christmas since the DH guilt tripped me into using that money for his Christmas present.

    Oh Jen!!

    I am so sorry you are dealing with all of this!!! It really brings me back to the back to back ear infections for our oldest DD when she was an infant. It was stressful and sad. :sad2:

    Prayers that your baby girls heal up real quick!!! :wizard:

    Melissa... isn't your trip soon???? :woohoo:

    75 more days until our trip!!!! :banana::yay::dance3:

    We are thinking about doing the Wishes dessert party for the first time, because I think our non-Disney friends would much prefer to watch from the terrace than from the crowds. :thumbsup2

    They will be converted...muwaahahahahahah...:laughing:
    Though I am proud of my BFF, she has a spreadsheet and everything!!! :thumbsup2
    And....she asked "if we wanted to go again next year...."

    Us too...it depends on the sticker price of course...with F&W we got our F&W at WS not the lounge :rotfl:

    Congrats to you and DH on the new puppy!!!!!!:flower3: And welcome home Mama :hug:

    Agreed...not good, and I love Holy Cannoli...and the way she says it, I crack up every time!

    :rotfl: AoA for Spring break!! I like it! :beach:

    No issue in too big or too small for our family..(Superhero theme music..insert here) :hug:

    Yes, there is a rule about nurses getting sick, ugh...I keep breaking those darn rules. Luckily it was a 24 hour bugaboo.

    So the dates are looking like Oct 30 or Nov 1st ish to Nov 7ish, Jersey Week, attack of the Jersayans :p The kids would only miss 4 days of school :thumbsup2 I'll be home Sunday evening...although I am running home to shower around 3am inbetween jobs :crazy2:

    Looked at Spring rates...DH is right (I hate it when it happens) if we want a vacation the longer to save up the better..I may be able to arrange MNSSHP and MVMCP this year :hyper: He wants F&W too...my Disney loving hubby is sneaking back pixiedust:

    They have been included in the RO offers and AP rates, so I think possibly for FD...unless they take values out of the FD mix as rumored :sad:

    Glad you're back BFF :hug: I am SO much better today. Slept all night, and got paid to do it!! :upsidedow

    :cool1::cool1::cool1:

    I will, I will...oh you were talking to Sheila :duck:

    :hug: Parents of special needs children are amazing! Jen YOU are amazing...we mommies, we do what we have to do. Where do we get the energy...who knows, but we do it! And you know what May is coming super soon!!!! :beach:

    ::yes::

    Melissa you'll be at WDW this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am better already Marie! Now it's your turn to get well :flower3:

    Good morning RC Family :goodvibes I am going to try to get caught up before Steven and I start working on his papers (one for this week and one for next). Then hopefully latter today I will pull out the suitcases and start getting organized.

    Candace - you just might convert your BFF to a Disney addict too :rotfl: Is she the one that you are always tagged with on FB? I am sure you are all going to have a GREAT time!!!! And yes, we leave Wednesday :hyper:


    Marie - First of all, why was your oil change soooo expensive??? I have a big V8 that takes synthetic oil and my oil changes aren't that much (and I know the conversion rate isn't that different right now). And secondly you know I will be sharing! I am toying with the idea of a TR this time since we will actually be there for more than 2 nights, but I have never done one and not sure if I can commit the time, but none the less I will be sure to post updates and pictures here and on FB ::yes::

    Lacey - Steven has adjusted well to the GF diet, thankfully. I just wish we knew it was making a difference. Since all his reactions were internal we won't know anything until he has another endoscopy :rolleyes2 Any more thoughts on your spring break trip :confused3 I think the suites could work out well for all of you. Would either of the grandma's be able to help out with the drive?

    Debrn - I try to keep a stockpile of toothbrushes too!

    Jen - I hope everyone is hanging in there today and the meds are going down smoothly :flower3:

    Wookie - I think the Nemo suites would be perfect for you! I think the suites look great, and I contemplated them myself. Are you going for your taxes today? Good luck!!!!

    Janet - Oh no, I am sorry you were so sick this week :worried: Glad you are feeling back to yourself. I was in Boynton yesterday and wishing you were still in town so we could have grabbed a quick lunch :flower3:

    Shelia - YAY on the Poly!!!! Did you book it yet?

    Linda - congrats on the new furbaby! Oh and the hair cut and color must feel great after being away for so long :p

    DetTigsGal - Yep, I get out of the house just about every day too, but thankfully this is the first vehicle that I am actually keeping my mileage down. It is just working out that way with the kids being in the same school and doing the same activities. My truck is 10 months old and I only have 9,000 miles and that includes 3 trips to Disney and 1 trip to the west coast of FL, so I am pretty happy, especially since I lease my truck ::yes::

    Jeanette - Don't you know that mommies and nurses aren't allowed to get sick :crazy2:....I hope you are feeling a bit better and can find some time to rest during your shifts.

    Well I know I am not totally caught up yet, but time to start working with Steven on his paper. Hope everyone has a great day!

    Melissa

    Happy Saturday to all. Those who are not feeling well, hope you all are chipper soon :)

    Janet B- grades are due on Monday, so J will know if he made it then. Band director told them after class yesterday, that it required a lot of thought and he was taking the weekend...he's just playing with them

    Melissa- the jeep has a trip to Disney too, but for us that would be 2300 miles! It also had a 1600 round trip to take B back to college!

    Hey guys, I am on fb, but since I don't know anyone's real name if you want to "be friends" pm me :)

    Have a great rest of the weekend:). Yes, we have to go to a Super Bowl party...but I'm not watching :)

    hello..
    For those with sick kiddos that like to drink out of the same cup.....do you have any of the refillable mugs ..different places or covers and colors.??? Just an idea...like I said someplace else...I gave my nieces almost 30 of those cups and they use them when they go outside...and each kid has their own (and recognized) resort and/or color...

    Okey ...AP rates were not for French Quarter or Movies...so my husband........Decided to look at All Star Music...we are four adults and we like to have a preferred room...so "HE" looked at this place...it looks okey..never been to this one...and we saved almost 300 dollars...so I did the change over..

    The reason for Movies and French Quarter not on the list...is because these are very popular resorts and usually fill up without a discount...so they didnt do those..

    We also "CHANGED" two of our dining reservations...

    OY OY OY..

    have a good day
