Happy Friday everyone.

And we made sure we did our walk on the Boardwalk BEFORE dinner.
Whole Thanksgiving weekend went all to Beverly. Plans were to go to Sarnia and DW's family.
DW got home from Band practice to find a notice that after 10 months, the landlords have decided to do something about the ant issue the building's had. Immediately after Thanksgiving, they are comming on to deal, and gave the list of prep work. There is no way in hell we could get it all ready in time, so we have to cancel and spend the weekend getting things ready. Instead of R&R with family, it's work and packing things up . Gave up my OT this morning to get started too, so it's costing us. Really got to look about getting a bigger place. We've outgrown this apartment, and gotta start getting rid of stuff. No room anymore. Four of us in a small two bedroom apt.
DW is devastated to say the least... she had some great plans this weekend, and it was the end of August since she last saw her family, now could be end of November before we can get back there. I took the brunt of it last night, and she apologized this morning
Not much to do now but get it all done. Thanks for letting me vent.
I seem to remember being in WDW around the same time. At least we're clear
Sorry to hear this Brent, it down right sucks
Ahhh, the good old days....
Friday before a long weekend OWNAGE
It is really good pie.......BUT.....I think I would pick Disney as well.
All joking aside we really like IASW as well, we do it every trip.
It was tasty bacon!!
Hopefully you guys can salvage what is left of the weekend with just your wife and kids.
Sunday night my friend and I will be at DTD for drinks so ill text you and see if y'all are still there
Wow... I'm WAY late to the DisDads club. How do I become a member?
You just filled out the official application. Welcome to the club!
Emma's Dad (Don) will be around one of these days to give you an official number.
Sweet! Easiest application I've filled out in a long time. Been on the DIS for a while now but never stumbled across this corner. Trying to get caught up...
What's your name so we know who to harass??
Tell us about yourself and maybe about your Disney experiences!
I wouldn't worry too much about catching up. All you need to know is that Peanut Butter and Beverly are the official curse words of the DDC and bacon is the official food.
Aside from that just jump in right here.
I just hope it isn't another Chris or Christopher, but I'd say we're about due for a new one to join.
I love it when a plan comes together.
Don't forget the rubbing alcohol!
Man that sucks Brent. Sorry to hear that. But there is one part of your post I don't understand... Canada has Thanksgiving?
Hope your day gets better.
Us too. I love that ride!
Brian's the name... Thanks for the warm welcome, y'all.
I've lived in Charlotte, NC for the past 6 years now but I grew up in South FL so we went to Disney a LOT when I was growing up. I always loved it, but my fanaticism didn't start until a couple years ago when we took our children for the first time. (I got three of 'em - DD7, DS4, DS1) Thanks to the internet, I found the DIS prior to our trip in 2010 and have been addicted since then. Just about a month ago, we closed on our first DVC purchase (OKW is our home) and we're really excited!
At this point, our next trip isn't planned until Nov 2013 because I'd really like to wait until our youngest is around 2.5 before we hit the road again (plus our new DVC points don't kick in until Aug 2013). We may try to borrow some points and hit up HHI in April if we can snag a room. Regardless, it's going to be a long 13 months of trolling the Internet for my Disney fix, but there is no shortage of great sites out there.
I'm a complete fanatic and it's so nice to be able to come to a place like this and share our crazy addition with others who "get it."
What if you put bacon in your peanut butter, would that make it ok?
Good Morning, Gentleman. Happy Friday to all!
about to start another marathon work weekend. Seems to be the story of my life lately. working tonight, going straight to job#2 for the graveyard shift, graveyard shift on saturday night, followed by sunday noon-midnight. Was debating not even coming home sunday morning, but DD has no soccer game, which means I am free to play softball. It's probably not a good idea... but that's never stopped me before.
been scanning old pictures the last few days and uploading them for family archiving purposes. Also finally gave up on ever reviving the old laptop (wouldn't power up), so I pulled the hard drive and stuck it in DW's old laptop just so I could transfer all my files off of it.
and listening to D-cot as I do it.
Welcome Aboard! If you want to catch up, go back and read from pages 250 on in every previous club thread. That's where all the important information is...
Nope… it sure don’t. And it would probably be better if I didn’t…
but I seem to have an irrational need to be abused.
Sorry to hear this. Losing family time for any reason is never a good thing.
(and an unhappy DW is both unacceptable and down right dangerous).
Welcome sir! Grab a beer out of the fridge and pull up a lawn chair.
All Disney obsessed dads are welcome here.
Charlotte ‘eh. I live just a smidgen south of you on the other side of that invisible barrier where the local media seems to believe that I-77 drops of the face of the earth. Are you born and raised, or is the “Queen City” just the most current home?
Yah that just about covers it. Dues are payable in bacon, beer or Dole Whips. Just send them to Norm’s invisible mail box. All tat leaves is the initiation…
“Thank you sir, may I have another!”
