    DH just gave the go-ahead that if we can get X-mas presents kick started now, and get the bulk done, why don't we do CL at the BWI in November?:upsidedow

    So you recommend it? :goodvibes I really think for the ease of what it provided us at BC (food, convenience, a feeling of homeyness) it was worth it for us. Is it true that all of the CL rooms at BWI are boardwalk view? EDITED: Nevermind, I see not all standard rooms CL face boardwalk, some are GV or PV . But still...Talk me into this!!

    That's what I've found when working out the cost. I even thought maybe two nights at one without dining, but it still didn't save much. I am back to looking at my hat full of slips of paper. Maybe I'll just draw one and let fate decide! :scratchin

    I think if you liked BC CL you will love BWI CL. :thumbsup2

    The CMs are super nice, the lounge is fairly large and well appointed, and the offerings are pretty good. The convenience factor is the best part for me. No walking down to the boardwalk just for a mug refill or whatever. :yay:

    It is nice that you can get a BW view, but we had a GV that had a view that we loved of Spaceship Earth, the Eiffel Tower and Illuminations! :woohoo:

    Now I'm wishing BWI was available for my dates. :eek:

    Yes, get on FB!!!

    I'm glad you finally have a Dx. It makes the path a bit clearer.
    I have my own daily therapy sessions with a bottle of wine and text sessions with Melissa! She keeps me sane. Having someone to vent to, who deals with the same daily struggles is better than any therapist I've ever been to! I also have my weekly text sessions with Christine. :grouphug: My RC friends are the best support group going!

    That's fantastic!!!

    Dani, it's wonderful to "see" you back on our RC home :hug: You have been greatly missed!!

    Dani, sounds like a good plan with waiting it out with Daniel's new course of treatments and therapists. Praying that it all comes together for you and your beautiful family. :flower3:

    :woohoo: A Princess cruise (or any cruise) would be awesome!!


    Jen, hoping you get your Christmas wish early for BWI CL!! :cool1: You better be good!! :)

    1 week .... 7 days .... count 'em 7 days and I'll be leaving on a jet plane!!! :thumbsup2

    Just got notification that my Magic Bands will be arriving by 10:30 am today.

    Also email from Costco that my water is shipping today.

    DH and DD are doing the last minutes packing up the apartment and driving the moving truck from So Cal to Nor Cal tomorrow. DD's last class is tonight but she still has 2 papers to write by next Tuesday.

    So far no ME mail for my latest resort add on .... but that's a piece of cake to handle.

    I'm SO READY!!! Well except for packing ..... :rotfl2:

    WooHoo gave dh choices of WL, CSR and GF and he picked GF!

    Shout out to I_heart with info on cheaptickets princess:

    Rooms was disney 30% plus another 20%:goodvibes

    Also with 6 digit code from cheaptickets my res loaded right into my experiences , easy peasy;)

    Dates are 11/8-11 at GF and heading to F&W before its over!:cool1:

    It is kind of cute dh and I spent one night each at CR and Poly and grand anniversary finale is at Gf:cloud9:

    Amazing planning a trip helps take away the sting of dd leaving in 2 days for college. At least she can drive home in 4 hours. Going to Buffalo if any you ladies in that area.

    Before I can start packing I need to get DD up here, her stuff put in storage and then settled in here .... I can only stand just so much disorganization at once! :rotfl2:

    Since we are staying DVC I have 4 adults on the reservation .... just in case. But since so far just DD and I are going I customized 2 for each of us. DD is a huge Oakland A fan so she's getting green and yellow. I ordered red and pink for me. :cool1:

    Awww I just love my RC family. :grouphug:

    sis sounds like a plan! Danimal is just dying to try out Universal. I'm too chicken for the rides though so he's out of luck. :rotfl:

    Sheila you mean my two little brats? ;)

    Janet I'm on vacation for two weeks! Daniel is down the shore with his grandparents until tomorrow. Then they'll bring him home for his therapy, and Thursday we all leave to go back. Taking the kids to Ocean City, Wildwood, Atlantic City, Cape May...squeezing a whole summer's activities into a week and a half! lol

    lol you are so cute! I was actually planning for the end of August as well! I can't believe it has been over a year since my last vacation from work. In June I just rearranged my schedule without taking time off. It is NICE to not have to get up and go to work. I've been cleaning and cooking all day. Of course no one eats what I make but me, but her, that's alright! lol
