Then, after we win the lottery, maybe we can be DVC members~! Hee hee!~
OK, I don't know about everyone else (although I am sure most will agree with me) but you gave up the newbie name a while back as far a I am concerned. You can welcome up a storm as far as I am concerned.

I was pulled into Disney by my DH. He got hooked when he was stationed at Patrick AFB at Cocoa Beach and he took us early in our marriage, then we waited a few years and as you can see from my signature, we have been back alot. The December trips and the Sept birthday trip are the only ones he has not been with us on. He is used to my lists and folders, in fact he will sit in his chair most evenings during the planning stage and ask me what is confirmed so far. This afternoon, he asked me when I was making our September reservations in California!!!

Joining DVC was his idea. I was nervous as all getout, but we made it work and his gift to me was getting me enough contracts and then some to meet my point goal!!

We are doing something different this year
because I will be spending 3+ months down in St Pete FL
with my daughter (Just about a two hour drive to our Happy Place)
We will be taking several short trips to the World
2,3,or 4 night stays, a couple with friends who will be visiting
and a couple with just the Big Guy and Me.

We did try this last year but because of a
series of unfortunate events
we need to cancel almost all of them.
Up side almost all of these trips were
booked with a combination of banked and holding points.

Wish us luck

Once a groupie, always a groupie...this statement is roughly defined as someone who joins us is an immediate part of this family, therefore you are entitled to join in any and all discussion, well wishing, etc. And if you go away for a spell and come back later, you are still a groupie. Too this day, no one has been exspelled

Have had a rough start to the new year. A co-worker committed suicide. I work in a small business run by a 2nd cousin of mine. Only 4 employees, the owner and the owner's Dad. The owner's Dad is the one who passed. So we have had a rough couple of weeks. Please keep us all in your prayers.

I've haven't been very active on the boards lately. Trying to avoid all the FP+ drama. LOL

Hope you are all doing well!
Prayers from someone in the same cold as you! It is 19 degrees in Menomonee Falls this morning. Brrrr.

Hey, we will miss you at BLT by literally one day! Dynaguy and I will be there March 16 to 23 with our two oldest nieces on their college spring break. Yup, they want to spend spring break with their aunt and uncle. I think it has something to do with me paying for everything... But Dynaguy and I will be there all alone at AKV March 12-15 so maybe we could still run into you!

Also will overlap you in Dec when we are there Dec 4-11. Looking forward to the annual Dec groupie meet again!

I'm starting to see a groupie pattern here.... Dec 8 to 11 seems to be an overlap so far for at least 3 of us.

So I'm doing better at getting back to the DIS boards about once each week but still not as regular as I once was. My life still consists of knee rehab and a lot of extra sleep from the pain pills. I fall asleep at the computer, watching tv, even eating breakfast with my yogurt container in hand. (insert sleeping person icon here)

I am counting down the number of therapy sessions I have left because I hate them so much. Today is number 5. I will be done by the end of this month unless my therapist asks me to come longer and convinces me that I should. When I was there on Monday she put me on a recumbant bike for the first time now that I have both knees replaced (the right one was 4 weeks ago on Monday.) I didn't think I could do it but once I got it around the first time, it got easier. Still killed me, but not as bad as when she pushes the knee to bend with her hands.

So my therapist suggested that if I wanted to treat myself I should buy a recumbant bike to use indoors at home. She said they were $300 or $400 if you went to some place like Play it Again Sam so I was surprised. I was thinking they'd cost more, like a treadmill (which I hate.) Dynaguy did all the research for us yesterday and we went to the locally owned bike shop to sit on the Schwinn 250. I like it! We could have saved a little money by buying it from a chain but the local guy volunteered to assemble it for free and deliver it if it doesn't fit in our Pacifica. $500 later, we own a brand new recumbant bike! Now we have to clear a spot in the house for it but I'm actually looking forward to getting it. I am supposed to use it to build strength one day and then work on flexibility the next. Sounds like a good all around program for my knees and the sales guy said it was a very typical model used quite a bit by people in knee rehab from knee replacement. That's me! My goal is still to be able to walk the WDW parks without needing a scooter or cane. I don't think I'll be quite there for our next trip in March but I am going to try. And now I will have no excuse at all not to exercise because I won't have to leave my house to do it.

I was terrified on Space Mountain when I was 15. My, oldest who will be 13 on our vacation, wants to try it too -- I'm not thrilled about it, really. Either DH or I will go with him, for moral support -- which ever one of us goes with him, I imagine we will be feeling pretty yucky after! Just can't do that stuff like we used to! We went to a kid's version of a theme park for a b-day party -- after a few rides, we were literally lying down on adjacent park benches with our children watching over their poor, sick parents! WDW could be pretty funny this summer! (Dramamine!)

You are in WI, right? I have family there! I love the change of seasons that you guys have. We have seasons, too, but almost never any snow.

Maybe part of the reason I love WL so much is that feeling of being in the northlands!
I am in WI. Port Washington, on Lake Michigan. Looks like we will be even colder next week! Very cold temps coming.

Laughing at the thought of you all laying on the benches. I used to love Space Mountain and would ride multiple times, now I find it too rough. We'll see if he feels as brave once we get to WDW.

Looks like next week we will really be cold! Hope your knee rehab continues to go well. Take care.


Thank you all again for the prayers. I can feel the support. I'm at work today, things are slowing getting to a new normal. I like my job but dread coming in now. At least my brother is here as well, that helps. He's a good brother

We usually arrive on Nov 30 or Dec 1, but Kati and I decided to leave a little later and stay later in hopes of more overlap. She looks forward to seeing the Groupies that come for Dec. I do too!!!

Maybe I'll finally get to meet 2Kats!

Mighty tempting......the problem is that Mr Muush may be getting a new job and vacations will take a hit.

Fingers crossed that it works out. I would love to meet 'the Bug'!

haven't put in my reservations yet so if we get a concensus going, I'll join. Sid and Rizzo can't come due to school and they'd better be studying for finals!!

Inkmahm -- Gosh, being able to walk the parks must be really great motivation! PT is rough. I did a bunch for my shoulder this year. Great news about the bike! I have family near Milwaukee and they cycle a lot out in the rural areas surrounding. I walk a lot, but don't do much when it's cold and yucky. I have a treadmill, but hate it.

Hey, for our indoor training, maybe we could get a video of WDW and pretend that we are walking and biking through the park!

Good luck for your continued rehab. You can do it!
