    We will definitely be planning a trip to WDW, next year. When we have more time to sort all this business out, with out a time limit. So atm, we are thinking maybe head to Tokyo Disneyland for our honeymoon.

    I can't thank everyone enough, for all the support in the last 2 days. It means the world to me
    We're so bummed for you guys.
    But yes, flying to Melbourne or Sydney definitely doesn't sound reasonable at this point.
    No matter where y'all end up for the honeymoon I'm sure it'll be awesome 'cause y'all will be with each other and that's all that really matters.
    I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.

    Re: The RT Thread Part V

    Gah. After being on the phone with AT&T for almost an hour, getting zero help, and my sister having her credit card over-charged $200+ by them, I FINALLY have a phone on the way. After telling them that I no longer wanted an upgrade from them because of their poor customer service and that I would be switching to a new provider tomorrow, they finally decided to do their jobs, plus waved next months fees and are sending me the new phone overnight. At least something good came out of it.

    Wow, that is great Steve. I didn't realize TDS perks were mostly the same as the parks CMs. I assume that means you have HUB access also?

    How excellent is that! Great news. My DH's cousin has been a store manager forever at an IL TDS when she was a real CM, a fake CM when it wasn't owned by Disney and again now while she is a real CM again.
    She has always said they received perks but not as heavily discounted as the CM's in the park. A couple times a year she receives a few passes and saves them up for a trip. When I was going she said they were not going this summer because of the prices of the rooms and dining plan. I'll have to tell DH to update her, she will be thrilled that TDS is matching the discounts of park CM's. Good News!

    Errr. AT&T was great replacing my DD's first phone. It was defective within a few months. Now 6 months into it they were not so nice. She wasn't receiving her text messages in a timely fashion and that was while all the assaults were happening on her campus and the administration communicates with the students via text messages. We actually went into the service office. They spoke to my DD, rightfully, but when they could not make the phone work properly and offered her a refurb only that had the same issue the Momma lost it. The fine art of slightly raising your voice and repeating back what they were saying just loud enough for the connecting sales ATT showroom to hear...she got a different new phone. After a year she signed a new contract with ATT and got an IPhone. This summer she will have to get a new one as the button isn't working right anymore. DS got a brand new IPhone at 23 months and two weeks into his contract because his button didn't work. Made up for his Razor Phone issues of 5 years ago.

    Why thank you! My goal is to see if I can finish day one. The days in between arriving and departing should be easier.

    The last day and the voyage home was an experience. I have so much more respect for the people who do not live near an airport and have to travel to one. Growing up I was 10 minutes at best from OHare, spoiled.

    What is wrong with the novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? I never saw the need to rush young and impressionable children into what happens in the real world. Ugh.

    Well, I was reading ahead for three years, and a lot of really depressing classics are coming up, unless I can find a suitable replacement AND get it approved. I try to stay a year ahead on reading lists, so I can get approvals to replace bad ones.

    They read The Hiding Place this year as a lit assignment, in class. But some of the upcoming ones are horrible, depressng, deal with "stuff" and NO, just no.
