As for roommates, maybe try posting this on the FB page. I am sure there are some who would be interested in saving some money by taking on one more person.




One of these days I may just surprise you!
oooo me loves surprises

Oh, my, ladies. It has been a crazy busy couple of weeks, just nuts, and I haven't been back here nearly enough. After some back and forth (literally), my oldest is now living with me again. With that and the new job and trying to get the new apartment in order... I'm tired. I'm also DEFINITELY going on the trip. I was a bit concerned as with the new job I can't take vacation time for 6 months. But, as I mentioned on FB, I talked to my boss today who vowed to help me ensure that I could go as he is also a Disney junkie whose wife is not so much, so he understands.

So although I cannot take vacation, I can still take paid leave. We are currently undergoing budget cuts which required state employees to take a 3% pay cut. Thanks to an awesome union, they are compensating us with 5.2 hours of "comp" time per month. By the trip I will have accrued 16 hours of comp time, and on January 1st I'll have a personal holiday to assign to any day that I want. If worst comes to worst and I don't have the full 16 hours available I can work a couple of hours in the morning. My office is closer to the airport than my house anyway.

So, signing up for meals!


Wednesday: Storytellers dinner

Friday: Lunch at Pac Wharf and Dinner at Flo's

Saturday: Breakfast at Plaza Inn and Lunch at BTRBBQ

Sunday : Breakfast at Mimi's

day 1 having a hard time with this one. I wanted the story tellers as I have never done it but not really seeing anything I want to order. So I am guessing CheeseCake factory??

day 2 no chose as I will be partying with you all.

day 3 Flo's Cafe is more in my budget. Really wanted the Cathy Circle but um ya not at those prices.

day 4 If we go to Newport what time are we going? Will it be for Lunch? Have we decided on a restaurant for that?
Other wise add me to the Cafe Orleans for now.

day 5 mimi's

I just bought airline tickets!

What time is the Storytellers dinner planned? I'm thinking I may not make it as I scheduled a later flight because I want to spend half a day at work just in case I don't have a full 16 hours of comp time accrued. I land at SNA at 7:25, so I may not make the dinner unless it's a really late one.

LOL! I needs to get me name on some of the meal plans.

Beth, please add me to LaBrea, Carthay, Big Thunder and Fantasmic, if there is still room.

Thankyou!

Hello, ladies! OMG, it's Tuesday! My mom and stepdad are finally arriving today. They've been in Laughlin.....I think enjoying being carefree. lol I have still not begun to pack. I did drag the suitcases out though. That's a start. I'm not sure why I am so...um, unproductive. Usually before a trip I am packed a week ahead of time!
I think part of it is still being sick, I tire easily. Part of it is not wanting to think about the plane trip, lol. And, I don't know, maybe I'm worried I won't enjoy myself. I've wanted to see the PNW since 1999! What if I hate it? lol

Oh well, I'm just babbling. I should be packing!! TTYL!

I'm thinking if we go, it will be morning until late afternoon. Some of the ladies will probably want to be back in time for the evening events. So, yes, lunch. I signed you up for Cafe Orleans, just in case.
I need to get in touch with some of the local ladies who initially expressed interest and see if they are still wanting to go. I won't have a car, so we need someone who wants to go and who can drive.

No time yet. Soon. Even then, it will only be tentative until we actually call and see when all these places can accommodate us. We usually have to work with them.

There is no way you will hate it! You like cool rainy weather right? Nobody hates it until they have lived here for several months and the vitamin D deficiency sets in. Then you start to hate it and then you realize that you really do love it as soon as it stops raining for a few days.

I am going to need to room with someone as well, just Wednesday and Thursday nights. We usually get a list going of roommates needed on the front page of the thread; maybe after Beth gets back we can get something going or start a post on FB. There are always people offering to take another roommate last minute so I haven't been too worried (yet).

I will need that no matter what hotel I stay at. I need to book my transportation from the airport to the hotel, so I also need to know what hotel for that. Does anybody have any room for me, or want to share with me in the HoJo room I have booked or slurge a little on a Disney Hotel? I think Ruth wanted to a while back, but not sure if she is still in or not.

I am sending you a PM right now

Hello! I try to check in here once or twice a week but I think it's been much longer...

My mom signed me up for the meals we are doing and I'm not doing the hunt this year (don't want to sign up if I can't get Friday off again).

DBF and I went to DL on Sunday. It was great to see the Christmas decorations and it was raining so it wasn't to crowded.

I think I have hotel arrangements all figured out now. Paula, Karisa and I will be sharing a Queen room at the HoJo, as long as Paula can get the time off work.
