mini update for JenJolt

Jen - I am so confused with all your trips! I know you went in May too - is there a TR somewhere for it yet? I love reading the TRs - it gives me so much info and entertainment to get me through til my next trip! I've been reading yours, Soleil's, Meghan's and anyone's links I stumble across. The dining reviews are fun too, but not on an empty stomach!
Are you planning to move locally? Tell us more! Soleil sold her house too - but you probably knew that! Shelly aka mama snowbird is moving too.
I know lots of our snowbirds are going back in Jan. I'm bumping up to Dec. so I can take advantage of our cruise bounceback offer. It's only good through the first 1/2 of Dec. so we're booked at BLT from 12/6 - 12/10 and going on a three day on 12/10. We're hoping to add on a night at the beginning at AKL since we won't probably be getting to AK this trip. Waiting on a room only discount.
I can't remember if I posted in this thread or the 2010 but my girls were flower girls earlier this month so that and dance recitals kept us busy after school got out.
Now our summer is open! YAY! We're going to VA to visit MIL and SIL in August and are going to plan our ADRs etc. since they are going with us. (it still won't be at the 90 day mark yet! ) SIL heard how great our last trip was with DDP and the cruise and wants to do it all too!

Actually I didn't do a TR for May I'm letting LL do that since I went with her...however the Birthday extravaganza is all on me...I'm doing the PTR and TR for it LOL!

I think Shelly is staying local. She's been really busy getting ready too. She's working the 2010 thread mostly.

Meghan did a PTR and it's called something like Wishes Do Come True - a birthday trip. She last posted on it on 6/23 or 6/24 right before they left.
I'll have to check out LL's TR for May. I'm sure it will be good!!

Jen, We too will be going in Dec. I was ready to do the same week in Jan like last time...but Mike is a Christmas lover!!!!! He really has always liked it better than anything. So, he wants to go back for the festivities and decor!!!So, I think i should be off the hook for dragging out all our Christmas stuff here... but no, they will expect it at home as well! haaa!!!! I will be putting it up early tho'--like a week or 2 before Thanksgiving, becuase we will be doing school up til T-day, then Saylor will have his bday the day before we leave. I will let him do something before then---that's tooooo close for me!!! And of course, I will be packing and cleaning and planning like a maniac until the night before we go. SO....I will be at the CR Dec 5-13, unless we get a better deal the week before, or at a different resort.Keepin' those little fingers crossed!!! Sheree and her gang will be at BLT, so I plan to get with her. We met last year and she is great!! And yes, her little daughters are quite gorgeous!! I am gonna (someday!!) get Mike to help me figure out the whole picture thing on here, and I will put a couple of pics from the boys in their baseball uniforms this year. It was weird, they both ended up with Red shirts and the #11. Also,some of my little girls dance recital! They really were cute....but, I am sooooo illiterate with all this!!!!

Anyhoo....I am cleaning up our school room today....clearing out books we don't use anymore to make room for the new ones I am getting!!! I love new books!!!!! this should prove to be an allllll day chore. I worked on it once, but now I need to really finish it. We are going to be starting back with History and Science here pretty quick.

My oldest son went to church camp last week--over in Baton Rouge, and had a BLAST!!!! It was really awesome from what I hear. So, we are glad he's home safely! Thats a pretty good little jaunt from where we live....but it was good, so it's okay!!! Anyway, give him a day or two to get back in the groove and then I am back to some days of learning!!!! Always an adventure!!!

We are still looking at maybe getting some rain today or tomorrow!!That would be a tremendous blessing. If we don't get some, I am thinking they may ban fireworks for next weekend---it's pretty dry here! Well, I am off to clean/organize! Hope ya'll have an awesome week!!!!

Oh, man, a 2010 thread? Wow! I'm definitely not going back then. I did, however, just give the go-ahead to my TA today for a September trip!

I had my post op appointment today and, well, hi from home! It was so surreal. "Wow, you're doing great!" "Wow, not much swelling!" "Wow, your muscles are already working again! That's great!!"

Me: I need a return to work authorization.
Them: Okay! When do you want to go back to work?
Me (thinking ???): Er, today? Husband thought tomorrow?
Them: Hem. Haw. Hem hem haw haw hem hemmmmm.
Me, with a sigh: Next Monday?
Them: YES! That's great!!!

So, next Monday it is. It's good, long-term, to stay off the knee, work it slowly, not overdo like one does at work, but ... sheesh!! (Sadly, the antibiotics for the root canal I had four days before (!!) my knee surgery have completely wrecked me so I'm not sure what to do. Can't take it. I would, however, like a break from these things!!) I can't decide if I should keep my knee elevated all of the time or sit up and play video games. Maybe a little of each?!

Oooh I get to make a countdown ticker for Disney! Yay!!!

I'm tagging along on the 2010 Jan thread just because I can't leave my pals! The 2009 Dec. thread is sort of, well, slow.

Hello Snowbirds!

Glad you are doing better Sarah!

Yep, our move is locally. Only about 6-7 miles actually. We love our current house, but are not thrilled with the location - corner lot on a curve with lots of traffic and accidents. So we put it up for sale not really expecting it to sell in this market, but we got a decent offer in about 3 months. The house we are moving into is slightly older (it's 11 years old, ours is 3) and it has been vacant for about a year and needs a little attention, but is actually very nice and we got it for a great price and even managed to lower our mortgage a bit! So after some extensive cleaning, new paint, and new flooring it will be great!

I did start a 2010 Snowbird thread. But now am not even sure if we are going in January. We may take advantage of the free dining PIN I got for November. Hopefully we will know for sure soon. I will keep maintaining the 2010 thread until we know for sure.

We are set to close on the sale of this house and the purchase of the other house tomorrow if all goes well. It has been a long excruciating process buying this house since the owners are in a nasty divorce, the house was pretty much abandoned, etc. So we will sure be glad when it is over!

I see this thread is nearing 250 pages. Do you guys want me to start a new one over on the community boards since this really isn't a January countdown thread anymore? That's what we did for another countdown I was on. We all wanted to stay in touch even though we weren't all necessarily going to WDW at the same time.

Shelly, hoping it all goes smoothly and painlessly for you tomorrow!!! I love finding a house that just needs paint and new floors...kinda makes it more yours anyway!!! those are the best deals, really!!! since that's our business, we get to find really yucky places sometimes and work magic on them!!!It's amazing some of the before & afters we have. He doesn't do that as much anymore...we are mainly doing new around here, but I am always on the look out for a sweet little Granny house that needs a little TLC!!!!
yes, definitely get us a thread somewhere!! I am jealous ya'll are all moved over to the 2010!!!!! Hopefully you can get your trip time nailed down before too much longer....keep us posted!!!!!
