    Ditto! I'm taking a mental health day today. I'm exhausted! This whole time change thing needs to stop already.

    I don't know how I did it, but I got to school earlier than ever today even with the time change! :lmao: I set my alarm for 5 AM and kept hitting "Snooze" until 6 when I finally got up. The cats were running around like little jitterbugs, and I made it to my classroom by 7. Everyone kept saying how awake I was. Well, by 12:30, I needed a major caffeine dose. lol

    Hope everyone is having a great day!

    Check out this Steampunk Sleeping Beauty lithograph! How cool is this? YOU could win it at this year's NJ DIS Meet for GKTW! It is hand-signed by Artist Dave Avanzino himself and a part of our auctions. Join us in April for a chance to bring this piece home!

    I found something pretty cool yesterday when surfing/shopping on Amazon.

    If you shop through the link http://smile.amazon.com/, you can designate a charity (GKTW is on the list), and 5% of your order will go to that charity.

    Hey, every little bit helps, right?

    Of course (to stay on topic), joining us at the NJ DIS Meet next month is also a fabulous way to support Give Kids The World, too. =)

    I'm not planning to wear mine. I'll let my mouse ears distinguish me as one of the planning committee :rotfl:

    We were going to use the same kind, but may have to throw a curveball in. Muhahahahaha.



    I may one night! :)

    This is absolutely awesome. Do they do it all of the time? If so, could you post a separate thread about it? There's a lot of people who use Amazon here that might want to do this!

    Not sure. I have dozens of Disney shirts so I may pick something else.

    Yes- this is ALL the time. :cool1:
    Actually I have been doing this for months now (maybe 6 months?) since I saw it on these boards. I think Leah may have posted it? I know it was before the holidays.
    You just have to make sure you always sign into amazon using the "smile.amazon.com" address.

    I'm bringing one to the weekend, but likely wearing it on one of the evening events.

    I would encourage anyone who has one to wear it though!!!

    I hope you're feeling better Nikki!


    I don't have a Dis tee shirt, but I have lots of Disney themed ones, so I'm sure I will wear one of them on Saturday and another on Sunday. Are a bunch of people planning to make it to breakfast on Sunday morning? We'll be at the hotel, so I'm thinking we will participate before we head back to Long Island.

    Ty all! I wound up having norovirus. It lasted three days and was absolutely HORRIBLE. I am about 90% back to normal now.


    I live nearby, but will be over there for breakfast as well as the other events. There are lots of Disney shirts to choose from in my closet!

    When is everybody arriving for the weekend?

    I was just thinking about that... who's working that day? I'm at least taking a half-day. So, that would get me to the hotel around 3pm. If I take the whole day, I would probably roll in around noon. What about the rest of you?

    My mom is working Friday, so we're rolling in Saturday morning in time for the main event. I doubt the hotel will have our room ready at 10 am, so I think we're going to aim to get in around 11 am for the event start and then check into the hotel between then end of main event and the evening activities.
