They are both fine...however, it was a major accident all cars needed to be towed, one boy went to the hospital by ambulance, ?broken arm but, otherwise walking around at the scene...and according to my DD is now home and tweeting about it on Twitter.
My DD was driving my car, which is now not drivable. So, work was immediately stopped...I took off to the accident...hugged them both and didn't want to let go. The police gave me a copy of the report, called the insurance, called the tow company, called the autobody shop. I then resumed work...and just finished. Tomorrow...instead of working, I'll need to go to the tow yard, have the car towed to the autobody, let the adjuster know where the car is...and hope he can appraise it tomorrow so, that the autobody can start the repairs; go to the police station and the RMV...and hope that all of this is all set before we leave. I am truly counting my blessings that all parties are fine. However, I am so frustrated that I have done very little for a week after being sick...and NOW I have to take care of this...and we are down one car...and we leave in 60 hours.
Glad your girls are ok. Accidents are a pain

Wow, so sorry you have to deal with this right before you leave but I am glad no one was seriously injured.

Well, I am finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. If I can make it through work tomorrow, next week should not be too bad.

Tomorrow is mine and DH's 10th anniversary and we have dinner reservations at a very nice restaurant. Problem is that I still don't have much of an appetite. I've finished my z-pack, my steroids, and started the Zyrtec D but I still have so much congestion in my head and cough constantly. Should be a romantic night! And, I was finally able to do on-line check in today but it gave me a message that said DME did not have my flight info. When I pull up my ressie, it clearly shows the flight info but when I called DME they said they didn't have it. I swear I have had more technical issues with Disney's site this time. You would think there is a little mouse running on a wheel to keep their server up and running!
Happy anniversary!!!
And feel better

So I got to chat with cybrkitn and her DH on the bus to DTD tonight :-)
Total freak coincidence that I ended up standing right in front of where they were sitting

It was great to meet you, Dawn!

Need a bit of advice. I'm finalizing my packing and so is the girlfriend... She was asking me if she should pack anything fancy and I was kinda clueless as to what to tell her

As of now we only have a few ADRs... Lunch at Le Cellier, Lunch at Liberty Tree and Dinner at Tusker House. We plan on hanging out at Raglan Road, house of blues and a few places on the Boardwalk (Brewpub, Jellyrolls, ESPN). She shouldn't need anything overly fancy for those places right? Whats the attire like at Atlantic Dance hall in case we head over there?

Guys definitely have life easier when it comes to packing... A nice pair of shorts and polo and I'm good to go haha

Thanks in advance!

There is a lot to this camera that I need to learn. I've recently discovered the "fireworks" setting! I think it does well I low light but using a gorilla pod will help, too. I'll k ow more this week as I use it along with my Rebel.

I did get the PP+. We'll be at DHS the first night before Our early ADR at CM....I can turn in the voucher at any of the parks, right? Also I'll need to get early tix pick-up at Guest Services. I assume the PP+ voucher is exchanged at a PP+ booth? That's two lines I'll have to get in and we'll already be pressed for time .

Unfortunately, my lovely DH lost it while we were in the lazy river at Blizzard Beach. He set it in his lap and then 10 or 15 minutes later asked me to pass him the camera so he could take some pics... I said: "Ummm, honey... YOU have the camera". We ditched the tubes and walked the river 3 times, no camera. Someone must have picked it up right after he dropped it. Not a good day. Needless to say, no one turned it in and it never made its way to Lost & Found...

Sorry for the tangent - but it really is a great camera!!!!
Ugh! I'm afraid losing a camera while on vacation would really make me "lose it"! There isn't much I get upset about, but messing with my ability to capture memories in the form of photos......

I don't think she'll need anything other than resort wear.....can't speak about Atlantic Dance...I suppose anything she wear out to a club at home would be appropriate. My hubby and I are going to several signature restaurants so he's bringing the nice shorts, polis, and black pants....me on the other hand, am bringing my whole wardrobe, :rofl2:

How are you getting your boarding passes for the return trip home? That just occured to me. Will we be able to print them 24 hours in advance like we are for our flight TO MCO?

We arrive in the afternoon but our first FULL day we have a 7:05 am ADR for Chef Mickey
Do online check-in then go to front desk and they can print the boarding passes for you. Or you can check in and get the passes at one of the airport kiosks.

Anyone have thoughts or suggestions on it or another compact camera?
I love the Canon Powershot Elph series. I had an older one that I finally replaced a couple of years ago. I alternate between that and my Nikon DSLR.

Only now just catching up. I was there most of the day. Sounds like everyone was in Epcot yesterday.

I don't mind the quality of pics on my Powershot but its just so slow. That's what kills me the most. But I just can't physically carry the big one every day.
