    Welcome!

    I'm MommyP, I have 6 kids(as seen in my signature, but they are all like 2 years older than that now. haha) We live in Florida, but not close enough to WDW! I homeschool and am pretty much losing my mind on a daily basis.


    We are LOVING this cold weather down here. It never gets as cold here as in Orlando, but it was 64 in the house this morning, so I put the heat on for a couple hours. When Chad left for work at 6:30 he put extra blankets on us all. :love:

    Have you all been faithfully signing up for the new LAME Disney promo to try and win a free trip? I have even though I'm pretty sure it won't cover a family my size. :rolleyes:

    Did anyone send Twinkiemama and Utahmama PM's with direction to the new digs?

    Not a problem, girl. Thanks! :goodvibes

    Hey Monica! You said Mal... is your daughter a Mallory by any chance?! That's my daughter's name! :goodvibes

    I think I just might have to order some girl scout cookies... I can never get enough Samoa's! :love:

    Hi gang! thanks for the heads up on FB! Our computer died. We went to get a virus removed and the technician said our hard drive would be going out soonishly. Unfortunately soonishly was two weeks later. No money in the budget for a new computer right now so I have been using my phone for all my internet needs. It is soooo much easier to pop in on FB than to log in here on my phone.


    It is nice to see so many people on here and like Celery, I had completely forgot that poem! Too funny. It brings back some great memories of our little gang.


    Welcome to Lauren Elizabeth. Nice to meet you. The weird thing is the Lauren who used to post here was named Lauren Elizabeth too (that was not her username though). When I first saw you I thought it was her under a new name.


    My name is Elisabeth too. Obviously spelled with an "s". I have 4 kiddos. My daughter is 18, and my boys are 16, 13, and 11. I am somewhere in my thirties:rolleyes1 and I work as a nurse. I used to work exclusively on the mom/baby unit but now I flip back and forth between mom/baby, womens medsurg, and pediatrics. We are active in lots of sports in this family and of course we love Disney!


    Hope all of you are well. I will try to pop in with more regularity. Maybe it will be my New Years resolution. lol

    I posted a link on Wendy lou's wall and it was showing pictures of Mommy P's kids, so I took it off and pm'd her instead and then included Twinkie and BBN. Wendell saaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiidddddddddd she'd stop by in the AM, but ahem, maybe she is busy or something with her chitlins and man. :rolleyes1


    The kitchen is as clean as the living room. I even used a toothbrush for those hard to reach spots. Not saying who's I used though.....

    Tonight is Girlscout meeting and found out you can't order cookies if you don't live in the same town as us. They don't do on-line where the girls can get credit. I think the girlscouts are way technically behind. They said if you want cookies order from a troop in your town. I guess they don't want to take sales away from other troops but come on, is one really going to look for a troop just to order cookies?

    Thanks anyways.

    My oldest daughter is Malorie. I just spelled it different, not on purpose, just the way I thought it would be spelled as I listened to it in my head. Not too many Mallory/Malorie's around. My other daughter is Madelyn.

    There's a lot of that Man Flu going around :eek:. I have lots of sympathy for the wives of those who have it. ;)

    I was so sick starting around Thanksgiving. I came down with strep, anti biotics did nothing and then it turned into bronchitis. That lasted until this week. yesterday was the first day I barely coughed and started to feel better. My insides still hurt from all the coughing I did. It made me throw up I coughed so much. I am grateful no one else in my house got this. It made the holidays suck, and I went to the Dr. three times for this and new meds each time.

    I wonder how our travelers are doing and how the races went.

    Does anyone have a fireplace insert that distributes the heat to the rest of the house? any comments, pros cons? Thanks.

    1. Me too! When I first reread your poem, I was awash in nostalgia for our days of dreck and drivel. *sigh* How did we have that much time on our hands back then?

    2. That's what I thought too. And then I couldn't figure out who the heck the siggie pic was. :rotfl:

    3. Are you not regular? Perhaps prunes are in order? Jeez, you'd think a medical professional would know these things. :rolleyes1



    Hi yourself! :wave2: Did you get any snow today? The weather wench is predicting a possible 2 inches in my area by dawn tomorrow. Hopefully, she's wrong! I am just fine with the lack of that particular annoyance!




    Everyone else: What's up? What's new? How's stuff?


    ETA: Forgot to say that Twink was here, got caught up (or perhaps skimmed?) and assembled a witty, heartfelt post that was promptly consumed by her computer. So on her behalf: Hiya!

    And adding to what Lynt says,PJ, Twinks and BBN are ALL either having internet or computer problems.

    BBN: My sister is a nurse and they recently did the we all have to do a little bit of everything overhaul and they are more a women's health unit now. I say it keeps you on your toes.

    Almost got hit by a young kid in a pick up tonight. I was not far behind a car and we were going through a green light and he was facing us and he misread the distance between me and the car in front of me and made a left turn right in front of my car. I saw his smirky little face, had Mal in the car, slammed on my breaks to a screeching hault. If someone were behind me I would have been rear-ended and without a car for sure. Scared me so bad.

    So glad my full attention was on driving. If I had all four kids in the car, oy!

    PUMBA: What does moose meat taste like? Don't say chicken! Is it better cooked a certain way? That's ALOT of meat. I've tried Deer and don't like it.

    Allie: Praying for that little boy.

    We have had only flurries, nothing that has stuck as far as snow goes. Very odd for us.

    Ahem.



    Realquick before my computer realizes it is working and boots me off: my laptop "got stolen" and my ancient desktop doesn't like wireless internet and really doesn't like post.


    But glad to see you all here!

    It's so nice to meet you, too! Yeah, Lauren Elizabeth seems to be a popular combo.

    I bet working on the mama/baby unit was always interesting. I would love that!

    Hahaha... what your husband said made me laugh :laughing: I hope he feels better!

    I like the way you spelled it, too - it's pretty! :goodvibes And you're right, there aren't many Mallory/Malorie's around.

    You poor thing! I'm sorry you were so sick. Thank goodness it's going away!

    Mony - Hate the man flu/cold. Thankfully when my family spent the last week of Novemeber and first 3 weeks of December with sickness, my DH was spared. I'd rather have it again than him get it once. ;)

    :welcome:party:

    Yes, I would be one of those 'former posters'! :wave2:

    My name is Allie from Alabama! :) I am married (22 years) and have two kids DS 18 and DD 13. DS is a freshmen in college. I have three dogs, Shadow, Trixie and Cocoa. One of which locked me out of my car after she got adopted, but that is a story for another time. :rolleyes1 I am an aide in a Special Ed. classroom. I keep very busy with work that I am usually too pooped to come check in, but as MONY said, I resoluted to come back more often, and glad I did, so I can meet new friends like you! :goodvibes

    I did NOT know this fact! :headache: Oh, I remember that fall! SCARY!! :scared1:

    Thanks! He and his family need it. Yesterday was not a very good day for him. Now we need to pray that his body disposes of that fluid. Don't want a stent put in that might delivered diseased fluid to his stomach. :sad2:

    hey Twinks! Glad you found your way over here! :wave2:

    What part of the country are you from? As I said, I am from Alabama, but not too far South of CEL.

    Oh, and to keep you up to speed: I have a little 7 year old boy at my church who had several brain tumors removed on Thursday. We had a round the clock prayer vigil going for him. He still has tumors that couldn't be removed, but the surgery went as well as expected. He has two older sisters and a younger brother.


    I will keep posting updates *over there*. Thanks for all your prayers! :grouphug:

    Keep posting Lauren! This is a great group!

    BTW, has celerystalker been by here? Does she need an invite?

    let me think of what MOOSE tastes like..
    IT IS NOT CHICKEN....it is not a gamey tasting critter..
    More like a beef that is stronger then a regular beef..
    I like to marinade it in lawrys signature marinade...or
    Italian dressing ...but last night we had it on the rocks..
    I mean hot in the fry pan (cause it was to cold to cook
    on the grill)...needs to be a hot frypan and in and cook
    and turn over and take off.....not enough to be raw and
    bellow at you but just to say it is cooked inside too ..

    Today I didnt do a dang thing...well sort of...did dishes..
    (just breakfast)...Kait wanted guilettes and I made them
    for her and her boyfriend who is visiting us this weekend..
    A guilette is a bread dough that is lightly fried slowly fried
    that is...and when it rises a little turn it over and do it again..
    slow and steady...then you pull it apart (never cut into it) and
    put butter on it and I dunk it in tea with milk and sugar..for some
    reason it is delishish...My memere always had it when she had left
    over dough...and then my english grandmother learned to do it too..
    SO we passed it down to the next generation...

    so see ya later moovers

    Spending a lot of time trying to catch up on sleep - getting up at 2am, after going to bed at 11pm, CRAZY nuts - this is a vacation!! :rotfl2:

    DH did amazing running the Half and Full - he is goofy! Lots of disboard members out there- I cheered, and felt guilty I didn't at least try to get out there!

    DH finally is out of the shower and is dressed and ready to go - just thought I had time to post - darn internet here at Disney keeps logging out... frustrating...

    but I shouldn't be on line anyway! :rotfl2:

    Heading to the MAGIC KINGDOM! (and its so not rope drop time! :rotfl2:)

    so nice to SEE everyone' s posts - will catch up later!!

    I'm Back!!!!! Love the new digs and I have to go back and catch up but wanted to thank Sandy for starting it and finding our old treasures.

    Still rocking like I am still on the ship too.

    Had a great vacation , had dinner with Moo and her sister everynight. I really miss Cabanas this morning. Usually I just have a bowl of cereal in the morning , on the ship I had full breakfasts. I don't want to get on the scale either.

    Left Moo yestereday morning , she was heading to Animal Kingdom yesterday and home today.

    I will come back later to read and tell you more about our trip. But now I have suitcases and wash to get to. Plus this week I have to get all my Christmas stuff away too. Really I would love just to go back to bed....but had to get the kids off to school this morning. Rough morning for us all since we got home late last night.
