Lisa,

I don't know the answer to your question. But I just wanted to say hi.

Also, my DS at that age would have been the same way.

Hope all is well and I am sure the kids are keeping you busy.

take care
flo


P.S. I also noticed the count down clocks are in the 60's for days.

Hi everyone!

Well I have good news and bad news.

The good news is my platelets where higher (still low but high enough to get chemo).

The bad news is my white blood count was too low now. So no chemo this week. I'm scheduled to try again next Monday. So I'm at work and going to enjoy the week and let my body get stronger.

Thanks for all the good wishes and prayers. I guess from now on we need to be more general and now wish for one particular thing.

Lisa,

I was about to respond to your post about shorts and then saw your update. My suggestion was that I thought shorts would be fine most nights due to your sons age. I was going to suggest that maybe you could talk to him about wearing dress pants the night you are Triton's since that is the dressiest of the restaurants. He might not mind for one night and could enjoy his shorts all the other nights. Just a thought.

Fishing at Castaway Cay

My brother in law was asking about the fishing excursion at Castaway Cay. I have never done it and don't know anyone who has.

Does anyone know anything about it and do they recommend it?

Thanks

This is not an issue for DD as she would probably be wearing one of her dresses. DS is another story. He is going to hate it if he has to wear pants on vacation.

If this is true I better start getting him used to the idea now.

UPDATE: When booking our transportation from WDW to Port today, I inquired with the CM assisting me regarding the dress policy for children. He did some research for me and found that anyone age 13 or under is permitted to wear shorts as long as they are appropriate. They ask the parents/guardians to use their best judgement in determining what is appropriate. No cuts offs of course. This is not a problem as DS will have dress shorts and shirts. I am so relieved.

At the age of 10, DS is 5' 3 1/2" and 145 lbs so everything he wears is adult sizes. I have to get all his pants altered so as you can imagine he does not have too many options. As fast as he grows nothing lasts more than one season.
Here are my observations on 4 day Disney Cruises...you see it all. Some people dress up and so do their children. I have seen grown men wearing cut offs and tank tops with their hairy armpits and backs in the dining room at dinner...yuk...and I have asked about that from the Maitre'd or however you spell it...and was told that the policy is not enforced, but a suggestion. While I would never ever dress like a bum or allow DH ever to wear a tank top with his physique...LOL...He looks find in bermuda's and a nice shirt and nice shoes...much better at his short and portly shape than in long pants. I always wear capris to dinner. I am too old and round to wear a dress and I need comfort.
I am glad you got your answer from Disney, but it dismays me when I see people at dinner wearing what appears to be "beach attire".

Susan

I have done it twice, the first time by myself. Whith the owner of the boat . He was great and it was very informative, relaxing and nice.

The second time last year. I had Nancy go with me. The son of the boat took us out. He was VERY lazy. Ignored the guests, The trip was nowhere near as enjoyable. I would not go again if he was captain.

Both times there where only 6 - 8 people on the boat. Nice view of the Island and reef.

Mary, just keep thinking happy thoughts, which given your general positive attitude shouldn't be a problem. I do believe things will get better for you.

We just booked tickets for MNSSHP for the night of September 18th. Anyone else going to that?

Also, to those folks who are going to be at the BC meet: Have you made dinner plans? We initially thought we'd have dinner at Cape May, but we changed our minds and decided to go to Epcot after the meet and can't decide where to have dinner. Maybe the Biergarten?
