    Sounds like you need to put super glue on your packing list too! Even though it's been almost a whole year since my tooth went bouncing across the table, I still tote that tube of glue around in my purse.

    And, hey, that wasn't my sister's husband, that was her "old man". :lmao:

    Oh, it's okay, just say it....you really were laughing at me. :laughing: Like I said, John and Hunter were, literally, wiping the tears from their eyes. When they start laughing, they really laugh....those deep belly laughs. Even now, I start grinning (a full toothed grin) thinking about it.


    I was just talking with John and he said those people on the discussion board must think we are a bunch of hillbillies.:rotfl::rotfl: I ain't no hillbilly. I'm a Louisiana girl!

    That is too funny! I laughed outloud!
    Of course I was making a redneck joke and realized I had spelled sweatshirt wrong. LOL!


    I am wondering since you said that your camera was semi new...did you ever reformat the card to the camera. Alot of people don;t do this and this is one way that the card will lose pictures. I've heard of it happening a few times now...speaking of which I should reformat all my cards again. I know I did one with the new camera, but not sure if I did the other ones....and can;t remember which one I did, I assume the one IN the camera...but you never know.

    My DH seems to have a phone thing going on during vacation too. For one his brother beeps him on the two way part ALL the tiome, and then he always talks to this one guy each vacation as well. He will almost never talk to him, but I swear anytime we go somewhere that when the guy calls.

    Great update :thumbsup2. I am glad to read about Rose and Crown. I have toyed with the idea of eating there and now I know not to waste my time or an ADR.

    Right next to the super glue :)

    I may not be from LA but I don't do bland! And I've been to England. Unless you are eating a curry...or fish and chips, well....breakfast is pretty good lol. Kind of a bummer as it's such a lovely location with a Illuminations view, I guess it's a trade off at times, see the show or have better food. I was surprised to get the ADR's I did in Epcot during presidents week at the 45 day mark, not realizing the Illuminations hours had been changed so we ate really well in the WS, twice, but never saw the fireworks.

    All that said, I would gladly have a pint at the Rose and Crown :thumbsup2

    I love the hat pics btw....I'm not good at taking pictures of the kids when they try them on (trying not to encourage purchases!) but oh, they are obsessed with hats...and masks.

    DS10 REALLY wanted that nightmare before xmas one Hunter has on. He had to settle for a Jack charm to put on his necklace instead!

    I love how into it all Hunter is. At 12 DSS would have been the same but at 12, DSD is a young middle schooler and wow, once they hit 7th grade, they change. 6th is so much sweeter, sillier and I miss that silly fun side. It sneaks out when DSS16 isn't looking but seeing Hunter reminds me of it.

    Just caught up!! from where I left off. I wish I would have realized Ochsner had free internet I would have brought the lap top. I could have really used your update:lmao::rotfl2::rotfl:

    This would have def. kept me going in a much better mood!
    Danny told me I was a grouch:confused3 don't know why.
    I only had not had a decent nights sleep since June 6 Sat.

    He also told me I was rude and mean to the doctors (the ones who didn't count) they now have these doctors that specialize in staying on the floor and watching patients (I thought that what nurses were for) while their doctors are in clinic, surgery, or home.

    I love the update of Epcot! I can't wait to go back!!!! I am now trying to figure out if we could do a Mardi Gras trip instead of Christmas '10. wonder what the crowds are like than:rolleyes1

    I knew that you were just joking that's why I planned along with it. As you can tell, we are a bunch of nuts anyway. You never know when to take us seriously. And, like I said before, our life plays out as a big joke anyway so why not just go with it.;)

    My sister did show me how to reformat the card to the camera right after I got the camera. I just don't know yet how to work all the different settings. I am working on it though. and hope to have it mastered by the time our August trip rolls around. At least when I take pictures, there are heads on the bodies. If John takes the picture, we are headless. Well, I take that back, since we bought our first digital camera a few years back, his picture taking skills have gotten better. I think it's because he can actually see the people on the screen of the camera.

    John hates to talk on the house phone but his cell phone is going all the time. He comes from a large family (6 kids with lots of nieces and nephews) and he has a bunch of friends that he talks to. Plus, we use his cell phone as our company phone. His clients call him on his cell phone more than they do the house phone.

    Right now the big thing he and his oldest brother are talking about is how they think my new office is haunted. Yep, haunted. It's a partly renovated hotel that was built in the 1800s. There are a few weird things that go on around here. For instance, my dictaphone powers on and starts running by itself. We have a door that separates two large rooms that just comes open by itself. That, in itself, isn't that creepy but what is creepy is the fact that we have bells hanging on the doorknobs so we know if somebody comes in through that way. But, the bells don't ring when the door comes open by itself. When we open it, the bells hit the door and ring.:confused3

    The other back door is a real heavy wooden door and you have to give it a good shove to open it and when it does open, it makes a scraping noise where the wood rubs up against the metal plate on the floor. We'll go back there and the door is open but we didn't hear the scraping/rubbing noise.

    We know that it can't be some stranger walking by the "other back door" and opening it because there is a garden/sitting area in the back that is surrounded by a high wooden fence that is kept locked at all times.

    Oh, and our bathroom door locks by itself overnight. When we leave, it's unlocked. When we come to work, it's locked. It's a brand new addition to the building since this part of the hotel had just one tiny bathroom which the guests had to share back in the day. We don't know if the ghosts don't like the new addition or what.

    Just weird things happening around here but it's not scary.:scared1:

    I seriously wouldn't recommend the Rose & Crown. It was just sooo bland to us. I am sure for you Alabamaians (is that a word?) it would be taste that way to you too. I hated that much money out of my pocket and coming away feeling unsatisfied.

    Oh, that is just creepy about your office. You should play a game: leave the bathroom door locked and see if it maybe becomes "unlocked" during the night!

    I really don't think that Hunter's going to change too much. Lacey never went through a phase where she was "too cool" (wait that saying was back in my day:laughing: but you know what I mean) to do something. Both of my kids just love life and spending time with their family and friends. Hunter and Lacey have no problem, whatsoever, hugging us in front of their friends or climbing up in their Mamaw's lap.

    I wish you had taken your laptop. I would have loved to put a smile on your face while you were going through such a hard time. I really don't mind when people laugh at our family's antics. Otherwise, I wouldn't have posted them for all of you guys to see. The way I look at it is this....that's just the McBride family and there's no reason to hide it 'cause it ain't gonna change any time soon.

    I'm sure you were really "mean" to the doctors and nurses. You were just being "forceful" . That sounds more politically correct.:laughing:

    I hope that you guys can go back during Mardi Gras but from the things I hear over on the Louisiana Walt Disney World Lovers thread, it sounds like all of Louisiana packs up and heads to Disney during that time. It might make for some really big crowds.


    I hope to get another updated posted soon. Our next day doesn't include any mishaps so ya'll might get a little bored.

    You know, we've talked about doing that.

    We moved our offices on a Friday afternoon/evening. We threw everything into the offices that night and were open for business again on Monday morning. We had my office furniture/equipment and my boss's office furniture/equipment put in place but everything else just got thrown into two empty offices. Slowly but surely, we started getting things organized and put in the right place. But, then, when we would look for a certain item, it wouldn't be there. Just little stuff like a stapler or a box of file folders or other things like that. We'd look and they'd be in the one of the two empty offices. Maybe we never took them out of there in the first place?:confused3

    I am always hearing stuff bumping around upstairs but I figured it was nothing.

    Now that we have doors opening and dictaphones turning on by themselves, we are wondering if the ghosts were moving around the staplers and stuff too? Or walking around above us. Who knows?:confused3

    I can't believe I missed two pages! Your TR is great and I'm having a great time reading it. :)

    I do have a PTR (it's in my signature), but apparently it isn't very interesting, because the couple of readers I did have left. So now I'm just talking to myself. But that's okay. I talk to myself in real life too...and sometimes I even answer.

    We still have a little over 3 months to go, so there's not that much to say right now. Although I get to make ADR's next week (and THANK YOU for your Rose and Crown report. We've never eaten there, but we'll definitely keep it off of the list this time too!).

    And I think...I think...we're in double digits TODAY. I think. I have to check, but I think we're at 99 days. Or maybe it's even 98. I'll have to run over to disneyworld.com to check, since my ticker does months instead of days.

    I totally know what you mean about going with people. We have the whole family going this time. Well, my brother, his wife, and his baby and my parents (and probably grandparents part of the time). We love to be out all day and all night too, but my brother's already talking about naps for the baby. So we've warned them that we just might "do our own thing" some of the time. To which both my parents and my brother have replied "why would you do your own thing, I thought we were going together?" :sad2: Thankfully we arrive a day before and are leaving a day after everyone else, so we'll get some time in where we aren't following people around.

    We've never done the hat-picture-taking thing, but we may just have to try that this time. And I LOVE the "snack collecting" for Illuminations. I always have to get the Rice Candy in Japan and we usually get raspberry candy and gummies in Italy, but I've never done it with all of the countries. Definitely going to try that this time.

    The possible ghosts in your office just creeps me out. You have such a great sense of humor, though.

    I can't wait to hear more. I'm hooked!

    P.S. We'll be lucky if we can manage to keep the surprise until September. We're taking a friend of my son's and his mom said something about it last night. I looked at her :scared1: and said "It's a secret!" and she just said "They didn't hear me". Which they didn't. But, my older DS has heard us talking recently when we thought he wasn't listing. He blurted out "I want to ride Expedition Everest with Cole!" :eek: I just said said "When would we be going to Disney World at the same time as Cole?" I'm hoping he's forgotten the incident.

    Oh how I love a good "ghost" story! You'll have to keep us informed of the strange happenings that go on.

    That's funny that you mention your PTR. I did one, too, before my trip in March, and NOBODY responded! I think I ended up talking to myself, too, and then I finally just quit. Nobody missed me, LOL!

    I didn't get to many hits on my TR, either, so I must be pretty boring... :laughing: Oh, well. And you know what? I talk to myself sometimes and answer myself sometimes, too. I'm glad I'm not the only one!!!!

    And do your own thing if you want to. You can have family togetherness and some alone time for your own group. I followed my crowd too much, every step of the way doing what they wanted to do, and you know what? The one night my DS4 and I stayed behind on our own, was the most magical for me and him! So, don't feel bad about branching off some.

    It's good for "sanity".

    Glad you're all caught up again. I'm happy that I can keep everybody entertained while they wait on their next WDW trip.

    I'm gonna go right over and join in on your report. I don't want you to keep talking to yourself all the time.:rotfl: Not that I think there's anything wrong with that. (Do you guys remember the Seinfeld where they kept saying that?") Seriously, I talk to myself all the time. Especially when I am searching for something or when I'm trying to figure out just the right way to word a legal document.

    It's always a super good feeling when you hit the double digits in your countdown. My husband laughs at the way I count things down. I don't count today because, well, it's already here. And, I don't count the day we leave because, well, it's the day we leave. I just count the days in between.:thumbsup2

    Yea! You get to make ADRs soon. Once my ADRs are made, I do a sign of relief. Those really stress me out.

    The snack collecting is a great way to get the entire family involved in exploring World Showcase. A lot of the stuff we come out with get sa "thumbs down" but some do get a "thumbs up". It's a neat thing to do.

    I hope that you're able to keep the surprise trip a secret for as long as possible. I'm telling you, it was hard for us to keep it for just a month.

    No problem. My husband is supposed to come over and work on a few things here at the office and, when he does, it's going to be in the afternoon/evening. He wants me to come over with the camera and take pictures like they do on the ghost shows.

    I didn't want to totally take away the surprise part and the pee part of the title but I did want to add in the tooth part.

    John swears everybody is gonna think we are a bunch of toothless people who live out in the middle of nowhere who ain't got no sense.:lmao:

    Hey, I know lots of people who have no teeth and live out in the middle of nowhere who have no sense! :rotfl2: I don't mind knowing another... he, he....

    Tell your husband not to worry! We've all got funny stories to tell!
