    DDA Chapter 8
    This thread is a continuation of the DDA Trouble Free Zone and DDA Chapter 7.

    DDA originally stood for Disney Design Addicts as most of the posters were addicted to making t-shirt designs. Those designers are still here and many many more people have joined our friendly community. We think that DDA still fits whether you be a Disney Design Addict, Dear Disney Addict, Disney Dream-aholics, Disney Dream Addicts or whatever other acronymn you'd like to throw in there.

    Welcome to all the returning posters and welcome to any newcomers that might like to chat about design and all things Disney.

    Copied from Deb because she worded it so well.

    Bernadette - What a CUTE outfit! :thumbsup2
    The hat I found for Emma is actually a little bit big on me, so hopefully it will fit her! I'll try to get it mailed out on Tuesday. :)

    Poor Lucy! I hope she feels better soon! :wizard:

    Debbie, have a wonderful time! How exciting! :goodvibes

    What did you do to the pizza guy to send him into a rage? :scared: I'm glad you are OK! I hope you phoned the Pizza Hut and told them about him!

    Becky, you have the worst luck! :hug: I hope your weekend is good!

    Glynis, your MIL is a whack job. Wait, I said that last time. Well, she's still a whack job. I hope Alan doesn't let her get to him. Can she assign guardianship of a disabled adult to someone without their permission? :confused:
    I was wondering about that the other day because I know a mom with a disabled child who has EVERY intention of making her older DS care for the younger one when they grow up. We always wondered what she would do if the older one told her to go pound sand and refused to take on responsibility for the younger one.

    I haven't packed a thing. I don't want to go away this weekend. I had my toes done (but they don't have palm trees like Debbie's), I bought more stamps, I mailed the bills, I went to the mall and bought myself some shoes. But I still don't want to pack and I still don't want to go away this weekend. :sad2:
    I have pretty much convinced myself that our August trip is going to suck. (Excuse me while I indulge in a pity party.) I have read many reports lately of filthy rooms, rooms with no A/C for multiple nights, CMs who don't give a rat's butt, and general disdain for DVCers at AKL. :guilty: We LOVE AKL, and it is our home resort! But apparently they aren't handling the DVC section very well. The bus situation seems to have tanked property wide so pretty much everybody is waiting 45 minutes to an hour for a bus. I still don't want to rent a car. I tried looking for one and it fried my brain. SSR just seems to have bus issues, but since I have never stayed there I am nervous about whether or not we will like it there. If we don't like it that's going to be a very bad thing, because if no bus ever comes to take us to the parks we could be stuck at SSR for 6 solid days! I am just feeling out of sorts today and I am having a bit of a temper tantrum.

    Back to your regularly scheduled DDA broadcast.

    Thanks, Theresa. DH said I can cancel the tickets but the change fee is as much as the original fare so that would just be silly.

    Well, I've already snapped at her two or three times. :rolleyes: The hostess in me is mortified, but the rest of me doesn't care and is ready for them to go home.

    If my trip is issue free it is all good. I expect wackiness in my daily life. 5 of my co-workers have had either a parent or grandparent die within the past week. So my issues are miniscule.

    Oh you just reminded me.....Chanon, Janet, & Karen I got your packages in the mail on Tuesday or maybe it was Wednesday but they are their way.

    Men.:scared:

    :hug: I think you ALL (including nephew and his new wife) will have a MUCH nicer day tomorrow!!!!

    I don't think she can just hand over guardianship.

    So sorry you have to deal with this.:hug:

    Thanks! That is so nice of you to offer but the girls aren't big headband girls (see big head discussion below;) ). I am trying to make her a pony tail holder with ribbons but can't get the ribbons to stay knotted. I'll work on it this weekend.

    You're going to have such a great time!!!!!!:banana:

    Thanks! I saw the hat online and it looks perfect! When I shop at lunch with my friends I make them try on hats for my kids.:laughing:

    You know you can't believe everything you read. Bus service was great for me (and I know Janet said the same in her trip report)-better than January. The only trouble I had was at DDT but that is always a trouble spot. I wouldn't rent a car if you don't want to-maybe make a budget for an occasional taxi if things seem bad.

    :wizard: Hope your weekend is better than you're anticipating once you get going.:wizard: :hug:

    Glynis, your MIL sounds like a nightmare. Makes you wonder how she turned out such a great son! Guess he did well in spite of her influences.

    Elizabeth, take a breath. You'll have a great Aug trip. I hope you can have a nice weekend too.

    Ok, about the Pizza Hut guy. We ordered pizza for our class party. The PH delivery guy calls and is lost :rolleyes: and has no idea where we are. He says I am wrong, I'm an idiot, I have the wrong address, his GPS doesn't show it... so I say where are you? He was literally sitting next to the church and had no idea. :sad2: So I call the PH and speak to the manager about how rude he is, belligerent, calling me names. Manager comps the pizza. I tell the delivery guy and he is FURIOUS (no tip). I finally say I'm going to have to escort you out of the school. he is yelling, calling me names, saying it's my fault I didn't put a church on the order on-line (I did). We were walking down the hall and he goes the wrong way. I put my hand on the middle of his back (teacher habit) to guide him down the other hall. He stops, starts shaking his fists at me and yelling about not touching him, very threatening. He was totally out of control. All the church admin hear and come out. They make sure he leaves. He flies out of the parking lot (with kids outside). Call back and talk to the manager. Manager very apologetic and says he'll take care of it. I was really scared. The guy was big and didn't speak English very well. I know I shouldn't have touched his back, but it was an innocent habit (like I guide the kids). I seriously thought he was going to deck me. :headache: Between that, being very sad (cried a lot) over leaving my job and friends, and the kids last day, I am exhausted and headed to bed soon.

    But the good news is that it is SUMMER VACATION!!

    Jennifer - I hope Kyle is doing a decent job of running interference for you!

    Bernadette - I didn't even think about the hat being online so you could see it! Good thinking! :thumbsup2
    I always budget for cabs if we need them, so that's not a big deal unless we need them every day. One poor lady said they spent $75 in a single day on cab fare! :scared1: If the reports were newbies or people who had never been before I wouldn't give them a second thought. The thing that has got my knickers in a knot is the reports from people like us who have been a bunch of times and know how things usually go. People who have NEVER rented a car before who are just pushed to the brink by waiting an hour for a bus day after day. I hope they really are working on the dispatch system and will get it sorted out soon. DH said we've never had a problem at AKL. Since we have never had a problem we have never had to try to get help from them! It sounds like if anyone in a DVC room has a problem they are told "tough" and left to work it out on their own! :sad2: I guess we'll hope we don't have a problem. And we're only in a DVC room the last 3 nights. (The last 4 if our waitlist comes through.)

    DS and I are packed now. The cell phones are charging. I never did get any cash because I can't work out how much to bring. I guess I'll just go get some and hope it's enough! :rotfl2:

    What a B-otch. First of all calm down. She is not worth risking the stress for you or the baby. Secondly do what I do in situations like this. Consider the source. She is known to not be mentally stable and she has a history of manipulation. Her opinion of you or your husband really means nothing in reality as she has lost touch with reality. The thing you may not see is that you have given her guidelines, which she is now recognizing as she is trying to manipulate her way around them. We all can see that her relationship will not work out for any length of time. Look at it this way, if she disassocates herself from Alan then you will have that length of time to have a healthy pregnancy. Once her relationship ends she will find her way back, with more manipulation I'm sure. I know that this is my opinion, but it is based on what we have heard tell of her. I think it is probably best for Alan to stop communications with her though I'm sure it will be difficult for him. He can focus on what's truly important, your family, the one that you are building together. Give her time and space to realize that she is the one missing out, by then she will realize who she is married to now and that will be done or more likely he will realize that she is crazy and he will end it.
