    There are turtle tiles... :rolleyes1

    No seriously, I hope you end up falling in love with the new design. I could definitely see that happening for me. :goodvibes

    Regardless of the room design, the CL CM's are amazing, the resort grounds are extremely magical, and the resort holds so much nostalgia for us. I will always love it as a whole, despite not liking certain aspects. I can't wait to hear a big cheery "ALOHA!" when we step off the ME bus! You can't walk 5 feet without being greeted by someone there. Maybe in 2014 we will be there at the same time! :thumbsup2

    JanetB, thanks for the good juju for my uncle. And as for POLY, this is another wrong that must be righted... :thumbsup2 ... and I am just the gal to help YOU, too. :lmao: Just say the word... :rolleyes1

    Thank you Gwynne. I think much more was going on than he'd let on and I think it is pretty advanced at this point. :sad1:

    Dani, those photos were lovely. They got me all tweaked up for a Poly stay. :idea: And I like your mix of ADRs too. ... Your "broken bra" sounds like a serious issue. Hope "they're" back up and running by now! :scared1: :rotfl:

    Thanks Miss, I hear ya. Yeah, I did 3/4 of one :-)eek:) and will never go back into a closed MRI. it seems my uncle freaked out twice days before they even started the morphine and now he is uncontrollable on that. Tough road ahead. :sad1: ...Keep forgetting to congratulate MissM. Way to go! :flower3:

    Great change Pas130 befitting of your status! princess: Happy Birthday to Brian. :)

    I am just getting over the time change now. :upsidedow Applause for Martina's art show. As a art major myself, I hold a soft spot for all budding artists. [​IMG]

    Congrats on passing your test. :thumbsup2 WDW is so close, now is the fun month countdown part. :woohoo:

    I'd stick with FQ. You've got all it's charms lasered into your brain already. :cheer2:

    I drank too many beers at dinner and didn't get to buy a bra at the mall! :rotfl2: I am perusing the internet for some now. :surfweb:

    This is waaaay overdue! I've finally figured out a little bit of photobucket, so I hope this posts. It was on our trip -- Oct 6, 2012, I believe when this was taken. One of the highlights of my trip was meeting our beautiful Deena, sweet Lacey and dear Ginny :hug:

    I so hope I'm blessed to meet more of you in the future! Love you gals, my RCer family rocks

    We had Joey in the same room with us when we first brought him home. He slept in his own crib though. We were afraid as small as he was when he first came home, 4 lbs, we would have smothered him. We didn't move him out of our room until he didn't need the heart monitor any more.

    Love zombies. The Walking Dead is one of my favorite shows. I lubs me some Daryl!! The movie looks great. :scratchin I may just have to get that book on my Kindle before we see the movie.

    Y'all look amazing!! Thanks for sharing!!

    Happy Saturday... Hope you all have a great weekend. Well, 1 performance of Carousel down 5 to go. They all did an outstanding job. It truly amazing me year after year how it all comes together. Some years you think this is going to be a disaster and then opening night comes and it is brilliant- although this year the French horns in the pit really are bad. (that has a back story)

    We originally booked POFQ for 11 nights this coming December and then to surprise my DH - switched to Wilderness Lodge. He found out and was happy. Now we have talked ourselves into changing to POR to save around $2700. We wanted to take our whole family (2 daughters, 2 son-in-laws and 2 grandchildren) to Disney in 2015 for our 30th anniversary and would rather put the extra money towards that. It looks quiet. We also added a night.

    wookie I think you are my soul sister. :rotfl: Do you watch American Horror Story too?

    Since Lily was an exclusively "bees" baby if we didn't co-sleep I wouldn't have slept. It was so much easier to pull her close and let her nurse while I stayed sleeping. She still wakes up to nurse at night!!!


    Marie love the pic!!!


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Happy Saturday everyone! I'm staying in with the kids. We will probably watch a movie tonight.

    You'll love POR! It's our fav resort. Love the mansion section, either Acadian Place or Magnolia Terrace. We request a location close to Old Man Island bridge.

    Happy Saturday!! We're having a lazy around the house day. The DH and Joey went to get Taco Casa and then we'll play SW:tOR the rest of the night into the early morning hours.

    :welcome: As much as I love the WL, it does make sense to bump back to the POFQ. That way you can put the extra money into making your anniversary trip even more special. Are y'all planning anything like a vowel renewal and/or maybe a family photo session?

    OMG, was this season of American Horror Story amazing or what? Jessica Lang is hands down my favorite actress. She is just amazing!!

    The main shows the DH and I watch are The Walking Dead, True Blood, American Horror Story, and Falling Skies. We try and catch Duck Dynasty whenever we can. Then I watch several without him like Castle, Revenge, Once Upon a Time, Elementary, Bunheads, Switched at Birth, The Following, and The Big Bang Theory. Of course the only one we watch on tv is Duck Dynasty. All the other shows are online.


    You are a better woman that I am. I know I pumped for at least 6 months with each, but can't remember exactly how long.

    Happy Saturday to you as well!!

    Well I got some good news at about 3 AM that made me let out a little scream, and I might just have to let Dancin' Dan out on this one ladies. I checked on our return before we went to bed, which has become the norm. Instead of saying it was still processing, it had a date!!! :banana::dance3::dancer::dance3::banana: It gave me the date for our refund to hit our checking account as March 20, 2013!!! We'll have our return in just 4 days!!!! Now we just have to decide if we are going to San Antonio or not. The DH accuses me of possibly spending all of the return before our WDW trip, but he's the one that wants to stay at a hotel in San Antonio that is $210 a night, just so he can have a room that overlooks the Alamo. Anyway, we'll have time to decide what we'll do for that, but for now at least I know that by this time next week, our WDW trip will be paid off.

    wookie I LOVE Jessica Lange. She is a phenomenal actress. I thought the season started out really good, but halfway through it kind of unraveled. Like with the doctor being a nazi, and performing all those experiments...just to incinerate himself. And the nun being possessed. The doctor just pushed her from the ledge. All of these awesome key points were just washed away. :confused3 I love Evan Peters though! (Tate and Kitt Walker) :lovestruc

    SO happy you are finally getting your return! I called NY state the other day and they basically just read me the same line my computer used to say. "Your return is in the final stages of processing. While most are completed in 2 weeks, it may take up to 4 weeks." Well, this week will be 4 weeks. It is their stalling tactics. First they said it needed an extra review which took like 4 weeks. Now it's the processing nonsense. Maybe I will see it by the time we come back from Disney in June. :rotfl:

    Hi all!

    Marie I love that picture...everytime any of us meet, we all look so happy. I still say, one day, we should do our own group trip! Kids, DH's and all! Of course that would be after the ladies only trip!;)
    How is your DH doing???

    Candace: Happy to hear from you again, I too was worried about you.:flower3: Congrats on working so hard to better yourself at work.

    jeanette: You too!! And please take it easy on yourself.:hug: Sometimes we think we can do it all, but don't take on too much! I love the surprise for DH!

    Melissa: I am so sorry you are having a rough week, big hugs to you...:hug:

    Dani: That was a scary situation for you! I too would've called the police, sometimes our wacky neighbors have gotten a call about them too. A father and son were fighting behind us once...scary.

    SueM: thanks for advice on SAB, we can't be too careful with our little ones.

    Ginny: You look just as kind and caring as you have come across in your posts to me.:flower3:

    Wookie: What a relief about your return! So glad it is on its way to you finally!!:thumbsup2

    Hi to all! HAPPY EARLY ST. PATTY's DAY!!!:goodvibes

    Hi all! I don't know how to multi quote on my iPad app...but know that I'm still reading everyone's posts and updates! :-)

    I have been under the weather all weekend. NOT a good way to start this week with my return to the classroom...luckily I just have to get through this week and then t's their Spring Break! Unfortunately, that means another week unpaid...

    DS is playing in the bathtub, then I think it's a glass of wine and relaxing in front of the TV to watch DVRd Idol from this past week. :-)

    G'night everyone! Happy St. Paddy's Day tomorrow!

    Thanks Jen! It was great to meet my fellow Dis sistas :goodvibes
    They are such lovely, kind and FUN people! I agree -- we need to do a ladies trip! Can't wait to meet more of you!
    DH is doing as well as can be expected-- he's got a great attitude, so that's good for healing. We won't know for 4 more weeks or so whether his pinky will make it, waiting on the magical bone graft regrowth to take. Praying it does take, as he's kind of attached to his pinky now that he's lost digit number 4! His pinky will need a couple more surgeries if its able to be saved. We are taking it one day at a time -- unsure yet what this means for his career, as even though he's thankfully a Lefty, his shooting hand is right / he's right eye dominant, we will have to see how he can handle a firearm when he's all healed and every thing is said and done. He's looking at about 4-6 months of WCB for sure. I hope he heals well!

    Hiya ladies... wanted to say hello and happy weekend to all. :grouphug:

    (Don't laugh at me now, okay?... I'm currently lying down at the footboard of Miss M's bed because she's running a fever and I'm a paranoid momma. After getting kicked for the 10th time, I might regret not having chosen to sleep on the floor.) :upsidedow

    I understand, but if you sleep on the floor next to her, you're still close. :-)
