So easy

It's amazing to me how easy it is to get out of the habit of blogging. A couple weeks away and it takes an awful lot to get me going again.
Since being home it's been go go go. It sure would be nice to ease back into life after vacation. But alas. Full speed ahead!
I will try to do better, and I do need to post about Disney, but right now I am so dang busy gearing up for the kids to start school next week. All the boys started swim team this week, so there's that too. Then the normal stuff.
They went to the dentist yesterday, all five of them. Collin has a front tooth that is just hanging on for dear life, while the permanent tooth is trying to tell it to hit the road. He is not a wiggler, which is making me nuts. We have 2 months to get it out while waiting on insurance. It would be REALLY nice if he would get it out on his own so he doesn't have to go through that, and we don't have to pay for it! I told him he MUST wiggle. Zachy has a cavity that needs filling, just a tiny one because they aren't even using novacaine..just a little gas. They kept commenting on how white all their teeth were. This is truly an act of God because we certainly aren't great oral hygeine people. We make the kids brush their teeth, but I don't possibly see how they can be doing such a great job, cause really, they are in the bathroom maybe 30 seconds.
Oh yes, Em's scoping. Basically, we still know nothing. The doc took a bunch of biopsies and will be calling us Monday with the results. But no ulcers, so that is good. I asked if you can just reflux just because, and what if all the results are negative. He said we'd discuss that Monday. I just want her to feel good. Her current meds help, but not loads. She still hurts and still gets her awful, painful, juicy hiccups. Hopefully, we will figure out what we can do to help the poor thing.
Well, the natives are restless and there is much to be done today.

We are home safe and sound. Everything was wonderful. The condo that I worried about was great. Silly me for worrying.
I have much to write about how I love Disney, but for now I just wanted to let y'all know we are home...and pooped.
As a side note, tomorrow Emily has her endoscopy..please pray for some answers!

Hi Ho, Hi Ho

Hi ho, hi's off to Disney we go..
We leave first thing in the morning.
Instead of being excited, it's been a super rough day.
Em has cried almost nonstop, and I did something to my back. It hurts so bad when I move and I'm praying it gets better before we actually get to Disney. Right now, I'm sitting here with a heating pad, but when I move it just sends shooting pains. Not good.
But alas..we are off to the happiest place on earth! What could be better than following this day with that?!?!
We're taking our laptop and I may or may not post. Our condo charges for wi-fi but maybe we can hit a McDs or something with free access. We'll see.
I'm exhausted and still have much to do. Emily is screaming. I just wanted to pop on and said adios amigos!

Update on the concern

So last night I laid awake and just thought and thought.
Here's the conclusion I came up with.
First, most of the complaints came from owners of timeshares. We are not owners, and I have heard that guests are treated better than owners there because they want you to buy.
Second, most people don't write reports when they are satisfies with a place. They write reports when they are mad and want to spread the word.
One issue reported was the sheer size of the place. And on all the sites I found maybe a total of 100 reviews. Some were even repeats from people who were really steamed. Admittedly, there were some great reports. It seems to be reports of greatness or middle ground.
I just got an email from a dear friend of ours who has actually stayed there and he told me that it is a great place to stay.
So, with that in mind, I am going to go with a great attitude and a firm NO.
I'm so excited about this vacation and just want it to be perfect so I am really thinking hard about things I may not have before.
And besides, we have lived in some dives before..if it turned out to be a total dive, at least we're only there two weeks, right???

Very Concerned

We are going to be staying at a timeshare in Florida. Through the military. It was one of the few that had occupancy allowances great enough for our family.
The problem is, the place doesn't get great reviews.
I had read these reviews in the past, and was a bit worried, but really didn't have much choice, because of the occupancy thing.
Now, I'm reading more reviews, and I am worried.
Oh, I am so scared that our condo will be nasty, or that it will be super loud, or that our van will be broken into...all things mentioned in reviews. And they are supposedly super pushy about trying to sell you a timeshare. Which, I can deal's the other stuff that really worries me.
I keep trying to tell myself that we will mostly be at the parks, but I have a pit in my stomach that just won't go away. *sigh*
I suppose I just need to think of it as an adventure!

When we have a baby boy......

Zachy often talks about when we have a baby boy. I try to tell him that he is my baby boy, and I get a look of, "get real mom!!"

One thing he is adamant about is that when we have a baby boy, we must name him Tarzan. If you've been reading for a long time, you know that he wanted to name Emily, Tarzan. He says it is because Tarzan is just "ho, ho cute" (so so cute). And don't you agree???

The other day we were at the outlet mall, and the strollers were in the shapes of cars.
Zachy said, "when we have a baby boy, can we come back here so he can ride in one of those cars??"
It was ho, ho cute.
