One week from today we'll be at Aulani!
That's such good news Jimmy I agree with Di's advise

Prayers and Pixie Dust coming your way.

Di and Dad Hope your both feeling better as well...and of course Mahalo
Have a wonderful magical trip

Thanks Muushka for thinking of us.

My kids are all home and hunkered down for the storm.
but the big guy and I are here in Sunny Florida (next door to my middle daughter) praying for those in the path of the storm.

My heart especially goes out to those working in the hospitals, the police, and fire dept. it will be one rough weekend.

I've been trying to read back and wow how many new groupies we have.
Welcome to the best and most supportive thread on the DIS!
looking forward to getting to know you all!

take care groupies

My BP is usually low, high for me is the mid 120s and mid 70s on the bottom. DH on the other hand can have 139/80 with medication. I can only imagine what it would be without meds. He has been as high as 200/100. The doctors were amazed.

But keep a check on yours and I hope you keep doing well.

Been there done that!!!! It was never discussed when I had them during pregnancy, but my DH had hemorrhoids, he wanted to know all about them and what to expect. Luckily the kids were in their rooms!

Enjoy yourselves and bring back lots of pictures to show me. That resort is also on my bucket list.

I knew we were close in the years dept, but looks like y'all are closer than I thought!

One thing I read was that even the folks who didn't have bracelets, but had the new plastic tickets, got to go through the quick entry turnstile.

There's so much sketchy information about all this out there right now... who knows! But I'm guessing that getting tickets from Disney couldn't hurt.
I have always bought my annual passes from Disney to get the DVC discount, but when I just need a few days I order from Undercover Tourist. Whoever finds out about the new tickets first, let us know.

I agree, best wishes and prayers for safety. We had a good day here in Texas. Just a very slight nip, but the sun made it very comfortable. We have already had more snow here than we are used to and it was just a few inches each time, I can't imagine a few feet. Does not comprehend in my mind!!!

Glad you are enjoying Sunny Florida. Have a great time and we will keep your kids in our thoughts.


Groupies, I think I have created a monster! My dear darling husband told me today that he thought we ought to take another cruise before the Wonder Panama Canal one we have for September so that we would be Gold status before then. To appease him I looked up the prices and ones that would work with my schedule and I could tell he was ready, but I told him there was an issue of money and I already had 3 vacations scheduled for 2013 and I thought my boss would kill me if I told him I would be taking a 4th. As I said. . . . a monster!!!!!

I wish we could take a little of their snow and enjoy it down here. They have too much, and we have none!

To all the eskimo groupies -- stay warm and safe!
Yup, Nemo, the Blizzard

You know you got a great thing going when you are both on the same page about where and what to do on vacation! Sounds really familiar


BTW
We have a kitty who is really sick. Took her to the vet this AM. She has been lethargic the past 1.5 days, not herself. Her white cell count is way high. Vet gave her and anti biotic and fluids. I know a lot of you have pets, and know how it feels, so for those so inclined, I ask for prayer on her behalf.

Let's see if I can get the directions correct to add the wiggling corgi to your signature -

First - right click on the picture in my signature line and copy the location of the .gif file.

Second - click on the UserCP link located above to the left then click on the Edit Signature link on the left side of the page.

Third - click on the little yellow mountain looking icon above the area to post in which is the insert image icon, paste the link you copied into the box that pops up, hit OK to close the box and then when you save or preview the signature you should have the Corgi bottom wiggling at you!
Finally success at adding the corgi "wiggly butt" to my signature. Thank you Kathy!! Now I need to know how to add pics to the DIS so I can post a pic or 2 of my Dante. I've had others try to help me before, but I'm so technologically challenged, that I've never been successful at adding any pics. Anyone willing to help me this time?

You ask and you receive. I remember when my cat, Oreo, got sick, but we were not able to save her due to her age.

But last summer when Jasmine lost her puppies, the groupies gave me all sorts of pixie dust and prayers. Yes, these little beings are our life just like our kids and when they hurt, we hurt.

I sure will! We lost our 19 year old girl kitty around turkey day. Her brother - also 19 - was the very sick one -- on all sorts of meds and super skinny. Well, she just keeled over while eating her breakfast. Total surprise! Now we are just enjoying whatever time we have left with him. It is like living with a deaf old man. I will say prayers for your kitty. Our animals are such good friends to us! I can't imagine not having one in the house! Let us know how things go!

You need some sort of online photo posting thingy like photobucket. I need to sign up for one.
Others that do it will help, I'm sure!


Jimmy and Tammy and Casey and Kristian, I hope your kitty gets better soon. Let us hear.

My DH and I have 3 kitties that are like our children, and we have been through some ups and downs with all of them. We always work through it, but every time I am a wreck so I definitely understand what you're going through. I'll be praying for you and your "fur baby".

Hey Folks
Thank you for all the prayers on behalf of our kitty. She was on Ts shoulder this AM for 2 hrs, so she at least came out of hiding. She is drinking a little water, still no food yet, but is urinating, so thats a plus. She looks a like she has little more life in her than yesterday, but still a ways to go to be back to her norm.

Hi groupies! Remember me? I'm the one that promised it would be soon I'd be posting pictures from our Christmas trip? Yeah that didn't work out so well. Sorry! I've been so busy with work I just haven't had the time. Finally have a few minutes so I wanted to pop in quickly. I had mentioned way back when that we had some issues. It all stemmed from using 2 different member numbers. Despite being assured by MS the reservations were linked (they were) & we'd have no problems we definitely did have problems. I don't know who's at fault here MS or WL but they do have a problem that needs to be addressed. It took us an hour to check in. They had to cancel our reservation in the back & rebook it because it was linked according to WL. Once they finally fixed it we were assured by the CM everything was fine. It showed as one reservation & we didn't have to move or check out & check back in again on 12/24. Wrong! We did have a you're checking out receipt on our door on the 24th. Took 3 separate trips to the desk that day to fix the problem. I was not a happy camper. It messed up our housekeeping too despite assurance that also would not happen. We didn't find out until our last day which should have been our T&T day (never got it) that the we never received our full cleaning on the 4th day. We only got T&T service. Gross! We spent 8 nights/9 days in that room & it was never cleaned. A few maintenance issues with the room as well. Despite all that we did have one of our best trips ever. It was so good in fact one Christmas day we added another night to our stay! We had to move to OKW for the last night though because there was no availability at VWL. No big surprise there.

I'm thrilled to report that after trying for 4 years we finally got to be Flag Family! To make it even more special it was on 12/24. That was the highlight of the day with all the room issues we had. So without further adieu some pictures!

Never get tired of seeing this. It helped me control my temper at the check-in desk too.


One of my favorite pictures from the trip. Took this from the boat dock before we headed to MK for a 7:00 a.m. rope drop. I managed to capture all 3 modes of transportation.


Family portrait in front of the WL tree. Yes, my 14 y.o. is taller then me.

I had no idea the roof of the Trout Pass bar had this design on it. I've never noticed it from ground level.


And the family portrait


We didn't go to a park on Christmas day & we had a wonderful low-key day. Slept in. Opened gifts. Went for a walk down the lake path behind the villas (thanks Sleepydog!). Had a nice brunch in the room. Went mini-golfing in the afternoon followed by sundaes at Beaches & Cream. Ended the day with dinner in the room & a movie rental from the mercantile. A perfect day.

Pictures from our nature walk




This simple shot makes me teary every time I look at it. They grow up so fast & before you know it they really will be walking around the bend into their own lives.


Watch out for pirates!
