    Sheila: A Very Happy Birthday to you!! I hope you get treated like a princess today!:hug:

    Jeanette: sorry you are overwhelmed with school work, way to go though! How are you managing it on top of everything else? :hug:

    Miss: yes, it was good, but I like different movies. It really makes you think at the end. I will just say I believe in Richard Parker!:flower3:

    Dznycrzy: My DH does not like the new look of the Poly. I am indifferent, but I think I liked it the way it was before.

    For Wookie, and Dani, and DznyCrzy....hooray for your ADRs, they look great!

    Yeah!! So after almost a week of running around getting paperwork filled out, etc. I am finally going to be able to start subbing tomorrow! (I was supposed to start this past Monday, but there was a huge hiccup in the process.)

    I think I convinced my DH to add another day to our trip then! He asked if we could wait until the first of the month to book it though, so I'm waiting patiently! :-)

    I'm overwhelming myself. It wasn't easy doing full time school when I didn't have 2 jobs and a busload of kids..lol

    Pixie dust though the week I go away..one class has NO assignments due... Shall I thank Sarah :)

    I'm sure that is our Sarah's doing. Maybe she could work on the other class now.

    Concerned Mama here ... one husband, 5 young children, two jobs and school ... don't you think maybe you are over doing it just a tad bit???

    I have a twin???? :eek: 2 of me is a very scary thought.:lmao:
    That is awesome! Keep trying for an earlier Ohana. I don't think I could eat that late, either.
    That is my fear with this...either having to move rooms, or standing at the front desk so long, you could have packed up and moved rooms while you waited. Glad it worked out in the end.
    Glad you got your ADR's!

    Good news on your Uncle! :grouphug:

    I like the new bedding at the Poly (even the bolster pillows a lot of people don't like.) Maybe it looks better in person, but the bathrooms look hideous to me now. I do like the new faucets, but that's about it in the bathroom.
    Good news!

    :bday: Sheila!pixiedust:party:

    :hug: I may be...but I want to get this done..perhaps online school isn't the best option. It would be easier to show up to class once a week. I obsess over the assignments and I am two weeks ahead...darn my ocd

    Once again horribly behind. It has been HELL week with Steven at school so I have just been in meetings on the phone, etc. Not to mention all the other normal chaos.

    Miss you all, hope to catch up this weekend!

    When is spring break? That should hopefully give you a break from school calls. Moms have a heavy burden to carry and I hope you get a break from all this chaos soon:hug:

    Thank you. I can't wait for that one. I already told the DH, I will have to bring Kleenexes because just looking at pictures makes me cry. Beauty & the Beast is not only my favorite Disney movie, but it's tied with Gone With the Wind as my favorite movie of all time.

    I'm glad you got the ones you wanted. It looks like we will just be missing each other.

    Thank you, and of course I have to try the grey stuff, I've heard it's delicious.

    Thank you

    **insert evil laugh** oh the damage two of us could do **evil laugh**

    The way my school does on line, you can't get ahead. Well you could in the math, but then if you finished on math class before the session ended you could take another. Basically, if you could get the work done, you could get credit for 2 math classes and only pay for one. The others, each week is only opened up on Sunday of that week, so you can't see the work that is due that week until the week is opened. Then you have to make three posts on two threads of discussion, and you have to do them on three separate days. If it's a big project, you can start that in the first week of the class.

    Thank you. It was the one I was worried about most.

    Well, I have no idea when I'm getting my tax return. My mom said it's all over the news about H&R Block screwing up, but H&R Block is telling me it was the IRS. There is even a law firm that has started a class action law suit about it. I'm going to talk to my sister about it and see what she thinks I should do.



    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHEILA!!!!party::bday:

    Wow! You ladies have been busy, busy!!! It'll take me days to get caught up!
    :wave2:

    OK, I did it, got the GV CL Poly room booked for our 20th (even though it's a couple of weeks early, DH could only get off these dates) and since it was so last minute there was not much available. And we decided that since we started at the Poly 20yrs ago, we would stay at the Poly.

    Flights booked, tickets and room paid and LeCellier ADR made.
    Everything will be winged. Oh, yes, need to book the towncar.

    I've got to stay with this reservation as DH will NOT be a changer with this last minute deal.
    I just checked and they DO have the garden suite at BWI for less than the Poly, but DH will kill me.

    I just better hang out here with you lovely ladies and on the Poly thread and count my blessings! :goodvibes


    PS.....I have been lurking, and wanted to tell you all put a smile in my heart. Even when I was going through my lowest times. Thank you all. :grouphug:

    Sounds like you have an amazing trip planned.

    Well tonight I had a major freak out moment and then realized that I was an idiot and was totally fine. On the way to school I talked to H&R Block for like an hour. Then I had class from 6 - 8 PM, and had to drive an hour home. When I got here, my brain was fried. I jumped on the DIS, after eating, and check on the 2013 Free Dining thread. Someone had listed the FD dates from 2009 - 2012 for late summer/fall. I freaked out!! OMG!! Our dates were before the times listed. I had my DH come into our room and he wanted me to look into dates with in the time frame to move to. As I started doing that, I realized the 8th month isn't September, it's August. I think that's my sign that I need to get my rear into bed and go to sleep. Y'all have a great night.

    Yay for you Dani! 79 days will fly by! :banana:

    Congrats on your great ADRs. Poly is a toss up right now. I absolutely loved the old rooms, the art-director in me thought the color scheme was amazing and the darkness never bothered me. We actually stayed there this past August just so we could get one last stay in the old rooms. I am going to pop over in the next couple weeks for a quickie at Poly so hopefully I will like the rooms much more in person than from the photos. Mom has never stayed there... now that's one WRONG that must be RIGHTED pronto. And I'm just the gal to lend a helping hand! [​IMG]

    My thoughts are with both you and your uncle. My uncle also very recently found out he has cancer... shoulder. So far he hasn't fared well with MRIs, so he must wait til he's out to go elsewhere for a PET.

    , you may know just where my Uncle's room is located...:rolleyes1


    Good for you. Break a leg! :)

    So glad you'll have that much less stress. Yes, you certainly shall thank Sarah. :angel:

    Your plans brought a tear to my eye. How sweet you are staying right where it all began. princess:


    Wookie: Get some sleep!

    JanetB, KOOK, Miss, Chimo and RCers all: Hello

    Sjs314: Birthday Greetings to you... again. :hug:

    I am shaking right now! I just had to call the cops. I was laying with Lily and heard what sounded like someone getting hit and then screaming. I couldn't see out the window at the moment, but I didn't want to wait until I could see so I called 911. I told the the facts, I heard banging and screaming but couldn't see what was going in. It was definitely on my block, but not necessarily in front of my house. I left my name and number so they knew I wasn't a prank call. Cops come, I'm able to get away from Lily and see what the commotion is. The alcoholic lady across the street was slamming her door and screaming. Apparently her husband locker her out. I know it probably seems silly to call the cops over it, but I get very nervous with my littles in the house, and it is 1 in the morning! The cops got her straightened out and left, thankfully. I hate calling the cops and never do it, but if I feel that someone's safety is threatened I will definitely do it!



    Going to keep checking! Last year I had an 8:30 and managed to snag a 7:10. Maybe I will get lucky this year. I am going to contact IPO and see if they can offer any help. I don't need a prime time ADR, I will settile for 8!

    I HATE the new Poly rooms. :scared: Hoping it will be different in person, but they just seem to have lost their charm.

    You have fantastic ADRs! And so glad to hear the good news for your uncle. :hug:

    No free dining, but I am only 77 days out now (!!!) so it is late to start making ADRs. :rolleyes: Just have to roll with it, I am lucky to even get to go. I won't let the small things ruin my mood.

    Thanks sis!!!


    Will be checking religiously! :goodvibes

    Hang in there, it is almost the weekend!

    Thanks Janet!!!

    That seriously stinks. I am still waiting on my state return. I will have to call tomorrow because for 3 days now the site says no info is available. If I owed them money they would be banging down my door.:rolleyes:

    Congrats!!! :banana::love:

    :rotfl: Get some rest!!!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    Okay so for anyone who is curious here is how our trip is currently mapped out:

    5/31- arrival day

    MK in the afternoon
    'Ohana dinner 9:30
    Possibly back to MK as they are open until 11 and then have PM EMH


    6/1-
    MK rope drop
    Crystal Palace breakfast 9:25
    Afternoon swim, evening apps
    EPCOT at night

    6/2-
    Chef Mickey's breakfast 7:15 :-)scared1:)
    No plans yet for rest of the day

    6/3-
    Studios for RD
    50's Prime Time lunch at 11:25
    afternoon break/swim
    No plans for evening yet. Either DTD or swimming and enjoying the Poly :love:

    6/4-
    EPCOT for RD
    Le Cellier lunch 1:25
    Cry all night because we leave the next day

    6/5-
    Kona Cafe breakfast
    Do anything that is left on to do list before flight home.Since we have a later flight home we won't get picked up by ME until around 3:30 so we basically can do almost anything. Will probably hit MK one last time.

    How do my plans look?
