So sorry about your aunt. Hope your uncle is okay. That was a very stressful week. Hope John's twitches go away and stay away. That has to be very distracting and uncomfortable too. Just relax - we will all be here when you get back. {{HUGS}}

I'm terribly late but just caught up w/ your TR- you guys are hilarious! I had no idea that you can call the UK phone booths- I'll definitely be placing a few calls next time I'm in Epcot if I can work up the gumption!

My best wishes go to your family. As my grandmother always says when going through a rough part: "This too shall pass."

Good morning! I am determined that this WILL be a better week! Thank you all for your kind words and condolences. Replies to post and private messages are coming today, I promise.

Yesterday afternoon was a peaceful quiet afternoon spent in the passenger seat of the car with Hunter behind the wheel. Yes, I used the words peaceful and quiet in the same sentence as "Hunter behind the wheel". I do believe that he's going to be a really good driver.

Let me get the office up and running, catch up on a few things and I'll be back. The office schedule this week is going to be court-laden so I may have some free time on my hands.

UGHHHHH! I am so frustrated with Photobucket right now! If my one year automatic renewal didn't happen just a month ago, I'd go to another site to upload my pictures. Oh and several of my private messages somehow just got cleared out and I wasn't even finished replying to everybody. What is up with me and computers? So.....those of you who were looking for the new fabric prints and the animal prints for the backsacks and dresses, please shoot me another private message so we can finish up what we started.

Now, let me get started on replies.

Also enjoyed the eating pics/update at CBR's food court. You know we've never stayed there, so I love seeing what the inside of the resort looks like.
We had a fabulous time at the party! Of course, when you get a bunch of my family together and mix in John's brothers and sister in laws....you know it's going to be a good time!

I am hoping that we'll get to do a bit of resort hopping on this upcoming trip so we can see some new resort options.

Well there was no way I was gonna leave since I didn't know when I could get back so we made the best of it but we were like 3 drowned rats!

I'm so glad you got chosen to do the party! I don't watch the show. I've given up on all the reality shows. I used to watch America's Next Top Model but I given up on that too.
Oh yeah, you did get there just as the rain was really starting! Like you, we would have trudged along like drowned rats too!

I really really didn't like the last America's Next Top Model. It was so different than before and I just didn't like it all that much.

It never fails...you leave the park because of the rain and it stops when you get to the resort. Although your "up next" sounds like that rain may be coming back.
We did have such a good time at the party! Several of the people in the pictures are those who will be at Disney as the same time as us.

Yep, it does seem like the rain stops when you leave the park....just like it happened to ya'll.

Hopefully the rain doesn't dampen your last day too much!!
Oh shoot! I owe you some info on the CBR. I totally forgot about that. Sooooooo, what's the deal Lucille? Going to my favorite resort soon? Any chance that our trips might overlap again?

I'm actually making one for Victoria for our little weekend trip at the end of this month!!
The Duck Dynasty party was a complete blast! I'm so happy that I was chosen. I just saw the backsacks that you made. You did an excellent job!

I would fail at a party like this. My family wouldn't come. LOL
There were two sneek peaks and then two episodes that had already aired minus the commercials.

Oh I bet that you can throw a great party! My house is the one that hosts all of the family get-togethers. It's been that way every since we built our house a year before Hunter was born.

Your Ducked Out party looked fantastic! I still haven't seen the show (I need to see if they have some online, we don't get A&E), but even just seeing what I did makes me laugh. Looks like a fun show.

Caribbean Beach is so, so PRETTY! I think I need to try a meal there soon.
Thank you Brook! It looks like things are going to be better this week.

I think that there may be some Duck Dynasty episodes on the A&E website. The guys on there are so funny and they have strong Christian and family values which makes this a good family show. And funny!

Thank you Steph! It's going to be better, I know it! John's twitches settled down after a while but it sure is stressful when they happen. They are a very mild form of seizure but can lead to a grand mal seizure.

Thank you so much! I appreciate the virtual hugs! John's twitches and auras usually go away pretty quickly but this time they lingered for a hour which is fairly long.

Welcome! It's never too late to come to our party! I like to think that we're pretty funny.

That's a saying that I use as well and I've found that it really is true!
