home from work

Good Morning snowbirds..and fellow single day dancers..
I was down and out for the call all weekend with a headache. I finally crashed today and went to the doctor. I have an ear and sinus infection. The good think is that I'm 8 days away from my vacation and I should be on my road to recovery within a couple of days on the meds. The doc said that my ears will be fine for flying I bought some OJ and making sure my girls take their vitamins. I don't mind being sick in Disney, I just don't want my girls to be...but it will be nice if we are ALL healthy. I am just quick resting and then I have to run back into work...yuck! I will check on the Live reports tonight...hoping Shelly (crzyred) is having a good time and good weather with her family.

So to all of you Snowbirds getting back and checking in live - the million dollar question - HAVE YOU MET ANY SNOWBIRDS AT WDW??? If so, how many? And who?

YUCK! We've only had a dusting so far - every time they predict snow for us, it never materializes - or it's just warm enough to be freezing rain and make the roads nasty! We've had to deal with a lot of the cold temperatures, which we'll have again this week. I think the high on Thursday is supposed to be 9, with the low in the the NEGATIVES with -20-30 windchills! Bring on Disney!!!

Sheree.... try wetting a sponge then wring it out... put some dish soap on it and letting it dry... then cut it up in pieces and put in a ziplock bag.... I do this with old sponges and then just toss them when I am done with them at Disney.... and put out fresh new ones at home!

Well we made difficult decision in our house this morning.... DD had some problems with her room mate during the first semester at college. Brittany - the roommate - had her boyfriend spend every night in the room.... even after numerous conversations with my DD and the RA she still would have him.... DD has decided to move to a different room.... the problem is that Brittany and her family are neighbors... the girls have been friends for years.... but they went to school and Brittany went wild... drinking and the boy thing... her grades were so bad she lost her scholarship... DD on the other hand did great (3.2 GA) which we thought was wonderful considering the circumstances.... so now we have to go and move her on Wednesday to the new room.... then she is going to tell Brittany.... such a sad situation....

I'm sorry your DD and you are going through this situation Wendy! However from the sound of it, your DD will be better off moving instead of staying where she is!!!

Hugs all around for a tough situation!

I don't care what anyone says about my DIS addiction - this is GOOD STUFF!! I can only imagine how much less I would know to do if I didn't DIS!
I will say that I found a wand for $1 at Target. But I like the throw-away idea!!

Also, for those of you who printed off your t-shirt designs from the DISigners, I need help. I don't want to sound like a moron, but how do you get the actual design? I see the DISigners posting the requested DISigns on their threads, but how do you then get them print to your transfer paper? Is it as simple as a cut/paste type thing?
TIA.
Yep, we are! We're leaving THIS SUNDAY and will get there on Monday 1/19, around dinnertime. We're really looking forward to it and expect nothing but smooth sailing on the way.

I was thinking of decorating the car, but I don't want strangers to see us as tourists on the road, although our WDW license plate and PA tags MIGHT give it away

I haven't read the whole thread now, but you have to right click on the design to save it to your computer. Then insert it into a Word document, or any graphics program to print it. If you're using the "clear" transfers, you have to print them as a mirror image. If you're using the white (for dark color) transfer, then DON'T do them as mirror image. I just printed out a bunch last night.
