    I'm glad y'all made it home ok. Stay safe and warm.

    Hopefully they can come up with a well reasoned plan. Of course, it would have been better if they had already come up with one.

    Happy Friday to you as well. I hope you have a less stressful weekend and Spring Break.

    I'm sorry y'all weren't able to leave on vacation. Being frustrated by the government.

    Good Friday morning to you as well. Stay warm!!

    Thank you both. Yes it is easier said than done to try and relax about something like this. Luckily, I don't have to try to do that anymore. It pains me to say it, but the DH was right. I was getting myself all stressed about nothing. I checked out account this morning when I woke up at 3:30-ish this morning. The money is there now. I guess I just assumed that when they IRS said it had sent the money, it would automatically show up in our checking account. I think to celebrate, we'll take our boys to the dine in theatre and eat some fried pickles. Today ladies, is one Fan-freaking-tastic Friday!!

    Luckily, the DH will be in the office today, so we can get on Priceline and get us a San Antonio hotel.

    Hey Guys!!!

    So nice to see you checking in basketlacey!

    Yay Wookie! - Now you are all set with your return!!!

    JanetB - 27 days, but I wish it was 18!!!!! Got my Photopass+ today!

    Well, I did not hear about my raise today, it will be early next week. It's ok, I'm just happy to be getting one.

    DH's raise is automatic starting 3/24, and though the furlough thing is still up in the air, he has taken care of it by requesting and getting approved for active duty military days on each of the furlough days...so, even if the furlough goes through, we won't miss out on any money. So that's good. :goodvibes

    I still hope that they (our gov't) just figures this all out, because it is so unfair to all of the hard workers, who might not have options like my DH. :sad2: It's also not good for morale on his base, you know?

    Anyway, it's Friday, I've got an hour and a half left of work, and then family game night tonight! :yay:
    Although, I have a feeling DD8 is going to pick Monopoly...:headache:

    Good thing I bought some beer! :drinking1

    Hi RCers: Time to right THAT wrong of no Poly CL for Mom ... we are booked at Poly CL TPV in 3 weeks. Not long, just 2 nights. But we are looking forward to new rooms, Wishes from our patio or the lounge (I prefer to hear Wishes), a relaxed regiment of MK, DtD and Poly only, and hopefully still moderate temps for mom. Since her birthday falls in June and she can't take the heat :faint:, we've done her "birthday present" trip in April for the last few years and it has worked out quite well. She is such a spoiled Disney princess. princess: I know she only wants Poly so she can LOVING GAZE at her favorite CR across the Seven Seas Lagoon. :joker:

    ____________________________

    I am thinking of all our furlough-affected RCers. Ugh to the waiting... and waiting... and waiting. :rolleyes1

    Have fun!! This time next week, we'll be in San Antonio with my three men. I can't wait to get away with them!!

    Hopefully, you'll find out about it on Monday. I hope it's even bigger than you think it's going to be.

    It's a good thing your DH not only had the option, but realized he did, and was able to get it in place ahead of time.

    I hope they do get it figured out. Honestly, it should have already been figured out. I just think politicians stay in office too long and they forget what it's like to live pay check to paycheck, I don't care what their political party is. After all, they just need to be elected once, and they get a paycheck for the rest of their lives (something else I think is bs). I'll get off my soap box now.


    Have a fun game night!! I hate playing Monopoly with my DH. He will loan me money, until all of his properties are as built up as you can get them.

    Sounds like a great trip you have planned!!

    I thought waiting to find out about my tax return was hard, but I know it is nothing compared to those waiting to find out about the furloughs. I can't even imagine that.

    Thanks y'all. It has kept me a big 'ol ball of stress. If I could transport us all to WDW tonight, I would buy everyone a spiced Dole Whip Float to thank y'all for all the support. Now I just have to wait for the DH to be finished working. His parents had errands to run today, so they had the DH in the office with the bil. To celebrate finally getting the money, I drove to the Cheesecake Factory and got us a to-go lunch of their chicken and shrimp gumbo and a slice of Red Velvet Cake Cheesecake. For dinner, I'll have the left over, because let's face it, there is no way I can eat the entire gumbo in one sitting. I would need a second stomach for that. I did order or new luggage from Overstock and never saw a place to do express or quicker shipping. I didn't notice until after I completed the order that it won't get here until 3/29, and we should be in San Antonio by then. Oh well, at least we'll have it for our WDW trip. Who knows, maybe it'll come early.

    ETA.....
    I almost forgot....

    OUR WDW TRIP IS 100% PAID OFF!!!! :banana::dance3::dancer::dance3::banana:

    The DH and I just finished up with almost all the bookings for our San Antonio trip. We didn't get the one we wanted, but I think we got a good one that we'll be just as happy with. We were able to book the Grand Hyatt San Antonio (which is right by the mall), for $92 per night. In total, it's half the price of the room we were going to book over looking the Alamo. Right now, the room is paid for, Sea World tickets are paid for, and I just need to get the movie tickets bought. Then I will have everything paid for that I can pay for ahead of time.

    Now Monday, I just have to get the oil changed in the minivan, get the tires and all the fluids check, it vacuum it out and get it washed (well I'll wait until the day of to get it washed). The boys still don't know we're going out of town. I'm keeping an eye on the San Antonio weather and the high is supposed to be in the low 80's, which looks like we'll still be in jeans. Now for this week to fly by!!

    Only 4 more days and I'll be at my 7 month booking date!!!! :yay: I should be able to book the first week of my trip for F&W then wait a week for another 7 month window and book the rest of the trip!!!!

    Now where should I stay????? :confused3

    OKW: cheap points = longer stay ... love the boat to DTD, the music at the pool

    AKV: my favorite pools of all the resort pools, animals, lobby, reasonable point cost

    BWV or BCV: F&W so really hard to get ..... I did luck out and get 4 nights at BWV last year during F&W so you never know

    VWL: it's just home!

    Any ideas????

    GG All are good choices with BWV & BCV being the most convienent for F&W. If you really love VWL you just a boat ride away from the monorail and Epcot, I'd probably go with VWL :)

    Have you stayed at either WL or Poly before? Hard to pass up a great deal like that on the Poly.

    Happy Saturday Everyone! :yay:

    I stayed at the Polynesian last year as part of my Graduation present and loved it, especially the convenience of getting around. I stayed at the Wilderness when I was younger, and despite me LOVING and I MEAN LOVING the theme of the Pacific Northwest, I just have to jump at that Poly deal.

    I booked rack rate for the Wilderness in October, and it was going to cost roughly 400 per night, and if my room was eligible for the normal 20% discount, I was looking at 320 a night.
