Good morning, everyone!

Diana - Bob is having cataract surgery on Wednesday. No biggie, usually. Given the past year, we are hoping all goes well.

Good Evening Jaborini's!

Had a day at home (rarely happens) spent it surfing Disney and getting things in order to book our October trip. Now just waiting to hear about DSIL's vacation time for October. It is difficult to commit this far out for him and his business so we may just go with it and hope for the best. Going to give it another few days.

Elin, Sending prayers and pixie dust for Bob's surgery tomorrow. I am sure every thing will go perfectly!

Brandi, for healing and for you cruise in hmm 12 days.

Laura, Hope your having a good week!

Alison, How wonderful that you two have been able to use all your points. Someday....maybe we will be buying DVC.

Hi, y'all! Just time for a quick *fly-by*!!

I am not recovering quickly from these 14 hr work days!!

Ft Bragg is a totally different environment than Ft Carson. We are spending 12+ hrs a day in a large "gymnasium" (actually more of a warehouse) - on a concrete floor. By the end of the evening, I have concrete dust all the way up to my knees!!!

I hope everyone is having a great week! I have some free time Saturday, so if I'm not asleep from total exhaustion, I hope to catch up on the Boards!

Good morning, Friends!

Bob's surgery went well! We have a follow-up surgeon's appointment this afternoon but so far, so good!!

Laura - hope you aren't having to stand on that concrete floor all that time!

We had a follow-up appointment yesterday afternoon and the surgeon is delighted. Bob's eyesight without correction in his left eye is now 20/30! He will need new glasses but we popped the lens out of his current pair this morning. I had to put it back in because the lack of the rest of his progressive prescription made him dizzy. We can have an exam done in about a month to five weeks. It worked!

Just thought I'd bring this thread back to life!

Getting ready to head to another Army base for a week: Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Tacoma, WA. I leave Saturday morning.

I have the feeling I will arrive there a real cranky-pants after 5-1/2 hours in a middle seat on a 757! I've been trying for 2 weeks to get a different seat - Delta says "no"!!

I thought I was going to be able to get to WDW later this month, when Diana is there for the Princess Half. Had just made my reservations a couple days ago when I learned I'll be going to Fort Drum, NY instead. My consolation is that the work we are doing is very important, so I guess I can put my WDW trips aside for awhile.

The 7-month mark for my room reservation is March 7th. Right now I'm at SSR. I'm not sure if I should try for BCV, BWV, AKV or just stick with the Studio I've got. I wouldn't mind a DTD view from Congress Park! I'll be at Swan 10/12-14; I'm not going to change that!

Laura! Thanks for posting something on here. Fort Drum... near Rochester! You might get to see some winter! Oh, wait... I guess you had enough of that in CO, right??

I am sorry you won't be able to meet Diana at WDW later this month. I know you were looking forward to it. I hope the satisfaction of a job well done helps soften the loss of another trip.

February and WDW just weren't in the cards for me this year! Two trips planned; two canceled! October and December will make up for it though!

Leaving Saturday for Tacoma -- forecast shows showers every day we're there. Won't matter much to me since I'll be indoors before sun-up and long after sunset!


Drinking to the End of the World: I just booked a studio at SSR for 12/21-26. Rachel and Blake are planning to join us for Christmas so we will let them take the studio. I think I'm going to use 40,000 SPG points and book those 5 nights at Swan for JD, Tori & I. It would be nice to stay in a villa with a kitchen and washer/dryer, but who am I kidding? I won't be cooking and I can live 5 or 6 days without doing laundry!!

Sorry you won't be able to cheer Diana on but you'll make up for it with trips later in the year. Isn't there still some scouting to be done for Oct 2013 ?

Elin - how are Bob's eyes...still doing well I hope,and the rest of him too of course.

So far I'm booked with my BFF and her family Oct 6-12th. Her hubby was diagnosed with lung cancer so I'm really hoping they'll be able to make this trip, as they will need it. They have two little boys who will be 7 & 5 (the 5 year old is my Godson.) We'll be at AKV. Then I rented points from David's (still hoping nothing goes wrong) for BWV Oct 14-20th. So now I'm just waiting for the 7 month mark to see if I can get in there for my two homeless days that I have. Then we have to figure out if we'll be staying longer.

I'll be at Disney from 10/12 - the 20th. Unless we have problems with our airline tickets we're pretty good with that.

Dang - winter is here!

Will be spending my Saturday at the airport, then on a 5-1/2 hr flight, then in a car for the drive to Puyallup, Washington! It's going to be a LONG day!

I walk (rather than take the train at ATL airport) from the main terminal to Terminal A. There is African art (sculptures) and huge pictures of wildlife all along the walls. Makes me feel like I am entering AKL!! (reality will set in later when I land in Seattle!! )


I hope we are still planning a Birthday Brunch on 10/13, Miss Diana.....

Good morning from Puyallup, Washington! I am still on Eastern time - up at 4am!

LONG flight and of course the guy in front of me was reclined the entire way (5-1/2 hours)! My knees are cursing him this morning!!

I haven't seen this area in the daylight yet. Will get our first look at the Base this afternoon.

Happy Sunday!
