    I called my step-mother this morning and then I had to text my sister to see if h*&& froze over! She apologized for being a rotten step-mother to me. I am still in shock. This is the woman who when she told me she was going to Heaven I said I would rather go anywhere else then. She is part of my huge self esteem issues. My dad apologized to me just before he died, wonder if the end is close for her. I had not seen or talked to her in 4 years! I accepted the apology but I am shocked by it.

    Margaret...I'm glad you were able to talk to your step-mother. It sounds like you have a lot to forgive her for. It's too bad that death and dying has to make someone realize how important someone/something is. That had to have been a tough call to make.

    I had violin lessons today. We are taking the next 3 weeks off of piano and violin for the holidays. I was going to ask to not have lessons next week anyways so it works well.

    I had a little panic moment the other night when looking at our Disney Cruise reservations. I had been trying to go onto their website to look at our reservation and it always says there's an error. It's done it for quite a while each time I check. I got to thinking that maybe we got scammed by the travel agent and she took our money and ran with it. Stupid me was using a confirmation number that we got from Disney when we had a couple rooms reserved. Not the one the travel agent gave us. Enter those numbers and lo and behold it showed up. So we are good to go for our cruise in May. In March we can start booking port excursions. I think we are going to do a tour of the Mayan Ruins and Cozumel highlights when we are in Cozumel. That includes a tour of a tequila place and samples. For the kids they do a pinata breaking so it will be fun for them. Another one we want to do is where you put these air bubble type things over your head and swim around the ocean so you can look at stuff. We thought about parasailing but it would be too hard since we have an odd number and DH and I would have to go with the two youngest, which would mean DD1 would have to go with a stranger. When I parasailed we sat side by side. The way this is set up you sit front to back and I don't want some stranger straddling DD. And she may not even want to go, but then where does she go when we are doing it. So that's something we should do when we are in Florida sometime or something. It's obviously too expensive to book excursions at every ports so we are only doing a couple. We set up a phone call from Mickey on Christmas morning so that is how they'll find out. After Christmas we'll have to get their passports.

    Definitely do something under the water in Cozumel. There are some great reefs (or there were); I know one of the hurricanes was an issue there. Another option for your group would be a discover scuba course. Surely there is one being offered through the cruise... if not they are easy to book on your own. I think youngest DD will just be old enough for this, but I may be wrong. Regardless they would let her come along as a snorkeler. Remind me later where else you are going... I am no Caribbean expert (but one day I will be).

    Go to cruisecritic.com. Sign up for your cruise group. Chat with other people going on the cruise. It is so fun to know people already when you are aboard. Also look at the family cruising forums and the forums for each place you are going.

    Margaret - glad your step mother called... it was the right thing to do. And it sounds like you handled it gracefully.

    P.S. Long story short my husband was able to rescue my phone.

    That's for the tips Tiffany. I'm headed to check out cruisecritic.com. That will be really interesting and helpful. I'm not much of a swimmer/water person so the little bubble head swimming thing is kind of pushing it for me. I don't know how to swim. I'll look into the scuba course though. We port at Grand Cayman, Costa Maya, Cozumel, and Castaway Cay (Disney's Island). We'll be gone for 7 days.

    Glad you found your phone. Was it salvagable?

    Oh yea... if you don't swim, don't scuba. The other option sounds very cool. You are going to have so much fun. I have to use half of my vacation with maternity leave so I am not sure yet what to do with the other half - 10 days to use between maternity leave and September. I know I will be doing something with my parents for at least part of that.

    And yes, my husband surprised me by calling my office phone from my cell phone to let me know it was found and working. Time to back up my contacts.

    I'm sure the kids and DH would love it though since they are always under water with goggles at the lake looking for rocks and shells.

    I went to cruisecritic and there isn't a forum yet for our cruise. I guess I could create it but since I'm new to the site, I don't really feel comfortable doing so, so I'll just wait for someone else to. It will be interesting to look around though and probably get some questions answered. Another forum to get addicted to

    I'm shocked your phone still works after being out in the snow and cold for so long. You have an iPhone right? If so, good to know they are tough.

    I have been on Disney Cruise forums all night! I read a couple of ppl's experiences with pics which was really fun. One person had been on 20 Disney cruises and said the Fantasy was by far the best. I also found disboards.com and found my cruise group. I think I'm going to join in on participing in "fish extenders." I had no clue what they were. You get a hanger/bag thing to hang on your fish outside your door and ppl in your group put stuff in there and you go around and put stuff in other's. It's a fun way to meet ppl and have a little fun. Now I'm trying to find inexpensive but cute things to put in there. Also things that don't weigh a lot. You only have to do it once a trip. It looks like it's going to get split up into 20 cabins per group. Some ppl give a gift for each person in the room and others do for each cabin. I thought of getting glow sticks from the $ Tree and having them be "Mickey's Magic Wand." Let me know if any of you have ideas.

    I found stalking the boards that left a week or so before mine left to be very helpful. Possibly with disboards cruisecritic is not as active, though I have noticed a few of them had lots of activity. On royal caribbean and celebrity, the ship held official cruise critic parties which was cool. The destination forums were also cool.

    It was interesting looking through cruisecritic and possibly as it gets closer there will be a board for the cruise we are going on. I'm going to keep checking it out.

    I'm going to call the dentist at 7:30 when it opens. My tooth didn't bother me much over the weekend or yesterday so I was just thinking it was a sensitivity issue so I didn't call. Last night it hurt so bad. Of course, it hurts when I can't call and make an appt. I absolutely hate going to the dentist. I would much rather go through all of the u/s, shots, etc of IVF. I feel like the whole left side of me is falling apart. My shoulder has been hurting for the last few weeks and it's been getting worse. I had DH check it out and he says I have a rotator cuff strain. I hate to know what it feels like when there is a tear. I went to yoga yesterday thinking the stretching and movement would be good for it but I couldn't do any planks or put any wt on that arm. I have no clue how I could've strained it... possibly doing push-ups? Sorry for whining.

    Hope you get some relief with that tooth. I don't like going to the dentist, but I don't dread it. I have found some decent ones over the years.
