Seriously? These are just perfect. I would love two of them (one for us and one for DM's cabin), if it's truly not too much trouble. There's a drink of the day in it for you

We would love one as well. And I'd LOVE to share a DOTD with you in thanks.

That is perfect, I would love to have one too. I was wondering how I was going to leave messages for my dad in case our cabins were not close together. And then it will be perfect on the fridge for when we get back home. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

That is so neat - we would love one! Thank you for the generous offer.

The only painful thing is knowing it was a result of my own stupidity! And I'll have a message board for you at the meet.

Not trouble that all and I'll have them for you guys at the meet. Your offer for a DOTD is very generous but is not necessary at all. It is a very simple design of a clear plastic presentation cover over a peice of paper. The idea came to me when we were looking at dry erase for our first cruise, they were bulky and expensive and we didn't want to pay that for something that we knew wasn't coming home with us! But I am always up for a drink paired with some great conversation!

We love using the board for messages between cabins. It works wonders. We first used it before the wave phones and we still perfer it over the phones. I do not want to carry a phone with me on vacation and worry about losing it or try to txt in T9. We leave messages about where and when to meet for lunch or an activity along with reminders. Hope it works as well for you guys. Do you need one or two?

You'd be doing me the favor by sharing a drink. I'm always looking for a companionable moment to share.

We are late seating for dinner. I am a bit sad about that with an almost 2yr old who goes to bed at 7pm.

If they don't cost you much we could love you own. Genius idea on how you make them!!

Sharing with ya'll -- Hope it's not too much

Good morning! So much has happened since I booked that I have not been able to get on the boards. I am finally caught up and need to just chat.

On Sept 20th....well first a brief history. My DH and I live on our sailboat. We have been in a slip in Alameda, CA (San Francisco Bay Area) for six years and on Sept 15th we cut the lines and started cruising. We were (are) headed to San Diego where on Oct 29th we will join the Baja Ha Ha, a group of a 145 boats, and sail to Cabo San Lucas. After a few days there we will sail to LaPaz and then fly out of there to do this cruise. Then back to LaPaz where we will cruise Mexico for the next two years.

So, back to Sept 20th. We were sailing from Captiola to Stillwater Cove when I was going up the steps to the cockpit and a wave hit the side of the boat just as I turned loose to enter the cockpit. It pivoted me and with great force threw me on the cabin floor on my back. When we got anchored I went to Urgent Care in Monterey. Gave me pain pills and sent me home. After two days a friend came to get me and I jumped ship for land. I stayed with her for a week and then flew to Phoenix to stay with my son and family. This last week I went to a spine specialist and had an MRI. Waiting on those results but he thinks I have fractured two vertebrae. I cannot sit up straight or walk for any length. So laying down on my side is the only option right now. Besides hurting I am BORED.

Our son left Phoenix today to go join my DH in San Luis Obispo to take the boat to San Diego. My son and DH will then come to Phoenix until I am able to go back to the boat.

Oct 4th was our 37th anniversary and we were apart. After years of not being together on that date due to work assignments we thought this year we would for sure. You just never know what is going to happen. Hug those close to you every chance you get!

This is my fourth Disney cruise and my DH's third. I did the WBTA Sept 2010 and we have done the WBPC Jan 2011 and the MR Dec 2011. We are excited about this cruise and look forward to meeting everyone.

Thanks for letting me ramble on....

Oh, yes, we are in a 5B. Do you need that for the cabin crawl?

This is so great, I would LOVE a couple of these however if you get too many requests let me know I don't want it to be a burden. We will have 4 rooms and I am so worried about coordinating our whereabouts. I would also love to buy you a drink to thank you for your time!

Judy,

I'm SO sorry to hear about your back, I have had several back injurys and really feel for you on both the pain and the frustration that comes from being stuck on your back (or side) and your mind is awake and bored but you can't move. Just wanted to send you some good healing vibes and hope your recovery is a fast one.

I found the small portable gel packs (picked up at a medical supply store) you heat in the microwave were helpful, I would use them every time I had to sit in the car for more than a few minutes.

Congrats on your anniversary! You and DH will have to postpone the celebration till you can enjoy it, but you can pick a day (or weekend) and focus on it again.

Hugs & Healing! -Laurie (RoxyHive)

On a positive note, DH and I got to play with the x-ray machine at his work, WVU ended up winning(barely) and I got to see Rich Rod and Arizona lose in OT. Overall it was a good day. Running might have to be put on hold for a bit though. Glad we decided not to do the Wine and dine half marathon.

Anyway, it reminded me, who torn their ACL? How are you feeling and when is your surgery?

Yikes! I'm sorry to hear about your toes! I did have my surgery almost 3 weeks ago. I got a brand new ACL and he stitched my medial meniscus. That's better for me in the long run but the recovery is longer. I'm still in my robo-cop brace with crutches and no weight on it yet. I go back to work tomorrow so that should be lots of fun. Back to the doctor in about 10 days, hoping I can start walking on it then! I can't wait for the cruise - it's been nice having something to look forward to. It's funny, the last two years we have done the Disney half (my husband does the Dopey) and we decided not to this year. Guess we knew!
