    Thanks for the update Janet! :goodvibes

    Even when totally exhausted, Pas, our Queen of Resort Changing has hit the speed dial and made that call. Sounds like a great plan! :dance3:

    I am so glad it wasn't something more serious. You calling the cops wasn't silly at all. You couldn't see what was going on, and thought someone was in danger. If they had been, you could have saved their life. I would have done the same thing.

    I'm just glad I don't have to deal with state taxes. I have a friend from the DIS June 2012 FB page that has to do state taxes in two states plus federal.:eek:

    It ended up being one of those night where as soon as my head hit the pillow, I was wide awake.

    Sound like a great plan. We did a 7:15 AM ADR at Chef Mickey's on our first trip. I think my three guys would kill me if I tried that now.

    I wish we just had to do 2 posts. Normally it's a minimum of 6 total "quality" post. What quality means depends on the professor. With on of them, you had to have at least one source per post and a minimum of 100 words.


    Normally what I do on my papers, is I plan to get them written early, then I procrastinate. The day it's due (Sunday by 11:59 PM), I write it and edit as I go. Then I plan on editing it further, but then my give a darn breaks and I just submit it after making sure it meets the length requirements. Then I pretend to "edit" it while watching movie on my laptop and tell the DH I can't play SW:tOR with him since I am working on my paper, but in reality it's already been turned in. Luckily, I have gotten all A's with this method.


    Now I have to decide if I want to opt in to the class action lawsuit a law firm is heading up because of the situation with the 8863 form screw up. My sister says to go ahead an opt in, so I may do that.

    My DH told me last night, "no Free Dining for our dates, move the trip to dates that have it. No Free Dining at all, no Disney this year."


    I know, it's just with my fried brain I thought 8/28 was September 28, which would have been after our dates. Once my brain was working right, I realized our dates were withing the normal time they have offered FD. Hopefully, they will offer it, as the DH has made it clear he will cancel our trip otherwise.

    That it will. I ended up sleeping until 1 PM today. As soon as my head hit the pillow I was wide awake and didn't fall asleep until closer to 5 or 6 AM. Then, the DH's alarm woke me up at 8 AM. As soon as he was off to work, I went back to sleep until 1 PM. I could have slept more, but decided against it.

    So pretty!!

    I think I could sit on one of these chairs all day...especially if I could get someone to keep bringing me Lapu Lapus all day.

    I am feeling better today, thank you for asking. If I could just get rid of the cough and feeling like I can't breath. The problem with this issue is that I'm not totally sure you messed it up. I keep hearing it was H&R Block, but then they tell me it was the IRS.

    That is awesome!!

    I'm having the same problem.

    Hi everybody! :wave2: I am way too far behind to try and quote everyone, so Hi and :grouphug: will have to do. I did read everything, but by the time I try to multiquote on this dinosaur laptop, there will be 3 more pages.:rotfl2:

    Happy Friday!!!

    Martina's art show at school is tonight. She is so excited. Hopefully we can sleep in tomorrow. I don't know why, but this time change has be all messed up.

    wookie unfortunately I know those kinds of nights all too well. :headache: they really stink! I think a 7:15 breakfast will be alright since we are so close. We can leave at 6:50, which is only like 20 minutes earlier than we would leave for breakfast in the lounge or at Capt Cook's. I will get myself ready first and won't wake the kids up until like 6:20. They'll be fine, and if they aren't then tough because they're in Disney and they'll like it! :rotfl:



    As per Janet's request, I've got a shiny new ticker!!! I am off to dinner with my cousin who is visiting from college this weekend. Then we are going to the mall since I broke my only bra. :eek:

    Hi all! :-) I just finished getting caught up on this thread. Didn't have any time today to do it earlier and I was in bed and asleep by 10:30 last night. Today went well. I spent the day in the English office and various teachers who teach the same classes I will be came in and got me up to speed on what I need to do the remainder of the year. This past week, the kids have had 3 different subs, so it's been crazy. I'm excited about officially starting on Monday! :-)

    In Disney news...so I've heard they're planning to release a room only discount similar to the Spring discount April 2nd or thereabouts. Good for June 14-August 14 I believe? If so, the question is...do we stick with POFQ with only a 5% discount or do we change to a RGR at POR for about $100 cheaper? I'm thinking I still want to stay at FQ...?

    Hey Guys!!! :goodvibes

    I didn't realize how much time has passed since my last post...:scared1:
    But, you all obviously had plenty to talk about while I was gone. :rolleyes1
    I'm going to go back and try to catch up.

    I had been super busy studying for that darn test for work, so I can get a raise, and I took it on Thursday and passed!!!! :yay:

    Now I can sit back and countdown to vacation! 34 more days...and we got our ME stuff today! :dance3:

    I can't believe how fast it's approaching! I have started packing, and I had to buy the girls new pairs of Keens and sneakers. :headache: but I think we have everything now, and I really need to dig in and pack.

    Our friends are so excited about the trip, I cannot wait! Next weekend we are all making tie dye tee shirts to wear one day of our trip ~ all 9 of us!!! :woohoo: that will be a sight!

    Hope everyone is doing well!! :wizard:

    I agree you should consider coming on the Diva trip ... where else can you see 70+ ladies doing a pub crawl in orange shirts? :rotfl2:

    Here's a link to the current Diva thread for any of the RC ladies that want to find out more about the trip.

    Hard choice. Are you booked room only? We were and had a 20% CAA room discount. Booked directly with Disney. But......we decided to stick with FQ because we've had 3 stays at Por, and so really wanted to try FQ! So we stuck with it. Then the Stay/Play/Dine promo came out, and was priced the same as POR, so we switched discounts for FQ.

    So you never know, they may again release a package that prices FQ the same as POR again.

    I'd keep what you have and wait & see!

    I think I liked the sleepless nights better when I was just staying up late because I wanted to. It wasn't so bad when we lived by ourselves. I would just get up, go in the living room with my laptop and watch tv as I played games on pogo. I can't do that here. If my fil refluxes, then they sleep in chairs in the living room. I have to just lay really still in bed, try not to wake the DH up, while trying to go to sleep.
    Yeah, it should be easier if your closer. We were at the CBR and took a taxi over.

    How was the show?

    $100 isn't much savings. If you are happy at FQ keep your room there, but if you have been itching to try a RGR it's a great time to try it. I am no help, am I? :rotfl:

    I was going to message you on FB tonight to see if you were ok! Glad to see you back in the swing of things here. How exciting to be SO close to your trip! :cool1:


    I am lucky that I keep mu iPad, laptop, and iPhone in my room so if I have sleep issues I have lots to keep me entertained. I also have my TV with my DVR, my PS, and an Apple TV. I am very entertained lol. I could stay in my room for weeks! Right now I am on the couch while my PS3 downloads a game. I'm a huge nerd. :crazy2:

    I had my iPhone and my Kindle Fire. I couldn't watch anything b/c I lost my earbuds and only have my big gaming headset, which doesn't work on my iPhone or Kindle Fire. My phone was almost dead and I don't have a plug in close enough to charge while using it in bed. Honestly, I just know realizes, I could have read one of the books on my KF.

    I am A-OK! :thumbsup2

    Oh, and congrats on your Poly CL room...as if I didn't know that was going to happen...:rolleyes1

    I know you hate the new design, but I LOVE it. I despised the old and that's what really kept me from staying there....but now, Poly is back on our radar!! :yay:

    Things are about to get very busy for DH at work and right straight through March next year, so now our plan for a return trip is either June or August 2014 and we want to do 2 WEEKS!!! (With one of those weeks being at the Poly CL)!!! :yay:

    I think we are going to buy a new set of AP's before the rate increase and not activate them until we go next summer and then we will also go either in Feb or April 2015....I'm pretty psyched! :woohoo:

    lol!!!! It's only Lily and I in my room, and she sleeps like a freakin log! As long as she has her "bees" near her she will stay asleep.

    Are you into zombies and stuff? I bought the book World War Z, but haven't read it yet. I have heard great things about it though!

    :laughing: No one ever saw me booking a Poly CL room! It's totally out of character for me! ;)

    The rooms just have no Polynesian or tropical flair anymore. And they just look so....yuck. I have to see them in person, but it reminds me of a hospital room.

    Hopefully you will stay there and catch the Poly bug!!! :woohoo:
