    Oh, no! Feel better - and can I say I'm glad I'm not the only person who has things like that happen? :hug:

    Thank you, I am just sore. I don't think I did any real damage. I posted this on Facebook and my TR yesterday, thought I would share the giggle here, you have to remember I am what DISers call "pooh sized":

    Too much bathroom floor cleaner + Tracy's shoes = Tracy go boom.

    I thought I wasn't going to get up, I was thinking "oh great, Bill's parents will be here in 4 hours and find me stuck between the toliet and the door" great impression right? Oh and they might bring Bill's grandma too. "Hi Grandma, excuse me for being in a half split with my left leg bent behind me with my foot lodged outside the bathroom door". I scared poor Acey to death. He came to check on me, (he has been following me constantly today, I swear he is worried about me).

    Oh and even better after I pried myself from that position I found out how badly I had scared Ace, one little turd by the balcony door, LMAO. Got to laugh because I know later I will be HURTING.

    Just thought I would share how STOOPID I am!! IP DIP!!

    Ace is our Jack Russell/Rat Terrier all skittish dog. He was a mess yesterday following me around then we had a thunderstorm and it sent him into a shaking mess :sad2:.

    Oh well today is another day, football is on which makes Bill happy :thumbsup2, I have Disney things to think about which makes me happy :cloud9:, and Ace is sleeping on the couch so he is back to normal :lmao:.

    Ah, you know me so well! ;) Well, no DLR today as the kids have decided today should be a Pajama day! :faint: I swear, they're killing me!

    I have an older model that I just use for hems, etc. I'm not crafy enough to sew, although I've considered taking a class or two.
    Sorry, I'm no help.
    Where did you end up staying? Would you believe POP was Andy's idea? :confused3


    Oh good, now I have someone to give me all the tips and tricks on room location, etc. :thumbsup2

    Since it's just the 2 of us, I think we'll be fine, but there's no way I could do it for long periods of time with the 4 of us, though. We were in a studio in August and were practically on top of each other. :headache:


    Oh no! :hug: I know I've taken a spill or 2 or 3 or 6 ;) and always feel the worse 2 or 3 days later. Take care of yourself!


    :rotfl2: Poor Ace! :rotfl2:

    Hi I'm Daisy12, and I'm Mrs.T-i-double-g-er's and Mr. T-i-double-g-err's daugher.:wave2:

    PS- I (T-i-dougle-g-err) am here with her at the moment. I'm sorry I haven't been around much. I've managed to pop into FB every now and again, but I've been pretty slammed at the office. TTFN!:thumbsup2

    Hi all,

    Just a drive-by to sub to the new thread so that I can find y'all when I come up for breadth from work. I'll have to get back on a bit more often to keep at least one eye on DD12 as she starts kicking around the DIS...

    I'm Denise and am kinda new here! Just wanted to say Hi :wave2:

    Love the Harry Potter movies, but couldn't really get into the books. Although I am definitely going to read the last one before the movie comes out (I'm scared I'll find out the ending before I finish!)


    You've got that right! :thumbsup2


    Seems like there's never enough points doesn't it :confused: Will be interested in your opinion!



    So glad you had a nice trip! It's probably a good thing to wait until March - if you do it in October, it'll be here and gone before you know it! :thumbsup2 to the cruise - they're awesome!

    Sure do! Sounds like you're not looking for a ton of bells and whistles, which certainly keeps the price down. The Janomes are great - I love my Janome Memorycraft 6600, but the Janomes Jems are great little machines and much less $$. My favorite is my Bernina though, they are quite a bit pricier than other brands, but their Bernettes are a good small machine.

    I feel guilty, but do it anyway :lmao::lmao::lmao: (but then my kids are grown - somewhat ;) )


    Oh, no Tracy! :sad2: Glad you didn't do too much damage, but ouch!



    I bet Ace is worried about you - those little ones are very empathetic!:love:

    What?? No DLR?? What's wrong with kids today :lmao::lmao:
    ---------------------------

    Can anyone tell me how I can post an photo at a size you can see? I started a Photobucket account but when I put the IMG in my post the photo is so tiny? I can't figure it out???:confused3 Thanks.

    Hi! Nice to meet you! I'm CE - I live in NH and have 7 year old boy twins.

    We miss you, Mr. T! :goodvibes

    See, I adore the books, and think the movies are just "eh." They did a pretty good job, but it's so hard to get everything in from the books, and I just nearly always prefer a book. ;)


    Thanks so much!

    Sounds lovely! :)

    ************************************************
    The boys enjoyed the movie, but agree that the book is better. :rolleyes1 :rotfl:

    I don't know what we're up to the rest of the night, but I would assume it involves TV or a movie. Have a good one, everyone! :grouphug:

    Hey there Mr. T! Hi Daisy! :wave:
    I'm not a point guru like LL is. I don't know how the heck she works her points, but always seems to get at least 3 vacations out of her UY. :confused3


    Pshew! No kidding! Now they want to go tonight to see the new Halloween fireworks. I'm on the fence about it - they'll be a bear to wake up in the AM.

    Before you upload them, go to the "Options" link and change the size there or you can hit the edit button on uploaded pics and change the size. :thumbsup2
    Thanks! And probably no changes this time. It's a tightly budgeted trip this time. ;)

    I'm dying to try Friendly's! :rolleyes:

    I've only seen a few mins of the 1st movie. I'm just not into that stuff. Don't get me started on Star Wars, either. :rolleyes:

    Don't know if you girls and guy ;) have heard of the website animoto, but you can make fun photo slideshows from your computer... so easy! Check out ours!

    Well, I can't tell that the schedule has changed for my cruise---lemme know where you saw that, Slate, cause I may be the last to know! And I've put $500 down as a early saver deposit so kinda committed anyway! But Ocho Rios was kinda the point....:sad2:


    Well, I've gotta head to Nashville, TN tomorrow for my 8 am ear appt on Tues. It's a 5.5 hour drive so wish me luck. Not overly looking forward to it....would be funner with someone to go with but I didn't want my mom to have to take off work since my dad has been so sick.....and I'll need Daran to go with me for the surgery........so off I go!

    ....should have got a referral to an Orlando ENT! :thumbsup2

    I searched earlier and did not see a cruise leaving from Tampa that included a stop in Jamaica. At least I thought you were leaving from Tampa. :confused: Or are you taking the Freedom from Ft. Lauderdale?

    Glad they enjoyed the movies anyway!

    He's not. HE is what I call a recovering Catholic;) We are a bit PO'd at the Catholic CHurch after what they did to Jimmy last year! The schools here close for the JEwish holidays though.


    I could never do that with Jimmy. He would never get up in the morning!:headache:


    :thumbsup2


    When you come visit I will take you;)



    :thumbsup2

    Safe trip and let us know how you make out! I can give you a referrel to an ENT near DIsney;):sad2:

    :lmao:

    ================

    Good morning all. Waiting for Jim to take Jimmy to the school is closed, but you are going to after school anyway program so that we can get started on his room. We have a 2:00 appointment with his therapist, then nothing for the day. THe after school teacher is taking them to the library for a scavenger hunt then to the McD's for Sundaes. Nice day for them and I can still get stuff done around the house:thumbsup2

    Jon Hein from Howard? I never realized he was the same.... I like him too!

    I am surprised you had that many meetings! That's alot. :scared1:

    We were cub scouts over here for a LONG time! We only meet once a month for our den and once a month for the pack. I love how they look in their little uniforms! So cute! Glad your eyes are on the mend. :lovestruc

    So, she's not the next J-Lo? ;) Well, she's cuter anyway.

    Never a dull moment at Lessa's job! :rotfl2: Sorry you don't feel well. Hope it goes away soon.


    That is so sad. Poor Kristel and Rockie. Sending love! :hug:

    If you go to the Canadian side, let me know. We go every year. :thumbsup2

    Naturally! :goodvibes

    Poor BA. :hug: That cold/virus/whatever is EVERYWHERE! It really seemed like ALL of Disney was coughing and sick. :confused3

    Loved seeing you! Missed Mooch though. :goodvibes

    Aww Lessa. :hug:

    Oooh. I agree with Tracy and CE. Be careful.

    Sounds lovely. I bet the leaves are gorgeous right now. I miss it.....

    We stayed at Pop for FF2008. Not bad for just us (snobs also...). It was clean and comfortable. Not too bad of a walk to and from stuff. Busses were GREAT! I didn't like that the only food option was the food court though. That's my only gripe.

    Ouch! Poor Tracy! :hug: I'm graceful like that too.

    Oh, Hey! I have been wondering where you'd gone off too....Glad you're back!
    Hi Daisy!!! :wave2:

    I was a "Friendly's Girl" during high school. Gained 20 lbs. :sad2:
    It is my firm belief that everyone should have a Jim Dandy once in their lives......:thumbsup2

    TE: good luck! I'll be thinking about you. :wizard:

    *********************************
    Well, I'm home. The trip was good. We had a great time together. The weather was HOT. I mean, H O T. HOT. We survived though.

    The boys did fine. The house was dirty and I had tons and tons of laundry but we're all caught up now.

    I have NO intention of doing a TR. Dawn and I barely saw each other. It's just too hard to try to mesh your lives together when you're there with your husbands. However, the time we did spend was wonderful. :love: I loved seeing Jo and Em too. Breakfast at the Poly was wonderful!!! I wish that we could have seen Angela's Mitch too but I always love to see her even without him... LOL
    Rachel IS way too cute. I mean seriously. She's so cute she's not safe alone at the pool. ROFL.... You'll have to ask her... LOL

    Got one kid off to school. Got one more and a husband to go. Then PEACE!

    LY guys.

    MEL:banana:

    Soo much better! Right noe it's like one tiny little fingerprint in the middle of my eye!:thumbsup2

    I think weekly is a little much, but Jimmy LOVES it so I'm not going to go crazy about it. It's the only thing he has shown this much interest in! BEsides, Jim being Den leader means he HAS to go every week. Me, I can go when I want too!:lmao:


    Will do!


    We like the food court with Jimmy, but if it was just us I would probably feel the same way ::yes::


    Jim said he gained weight when he worked there too. HE would take the mint cookies and go sit in the walk-in during his breaks:rotfl2:

    Glad you guys had fun, but that you are back too!:goodvibes

    I had heard bad things about Cleveland and I agreed. We love Family Guy and American Dad, but weren't impressed. :confused3

    I'll check it out!

    Good luck, hon. :hug:

    Very good!

    There's actually more color right now at my house than around the lake, which seems odd to me as it's north. We're hoping for one last trip next weekend to "leaf peep" and then that's probably it.

    It's supposed to be a fantastic year because of the early summer of rain and the dryness over the last month or so.

    Glad you had fun - can't wait to hear some details. :)

    *****************************************************
    Ugh. I'm in full out cold or allergy mode - can't tell which. I'm more sneezy than a normal cold, but I'm stuffed up and coughing, too.

    I'm supposed to have team tennis at noon. I half want to go because I don't want to sit on my rear all day (I honestly did some sort of workout every day but yesterday last week!) but half don't because I'm miserable. I'm not tired, exactly, but just have that "full head" feeling that makes me lazy. :rotfl2:

    D says he's going to the office. He's got a trip that leaves tomorrow and isn't back until kind of late on Friday.

    I have a pretty easy week, at least for now. Nothing out of the ordinary except for the school ice cream social on Friday night... No meetings, no appointments... :thumbsup2
