Finally, I have a pretty couch back and Iím thrilled. (Though my dog not so much. She actually barked at it Ö donít know what that means).

Bartender, may I have a celebration shot over here? Perhaps a B-52 if you have it?
Congrats on everything! *passes out a round of B-52's*

Ahhh, animals and their weird ways! My cat has an only-occasionally habit of licking the bedroom door. I've given up trying to figure out why. Congrats on the book - I have so much respect for anyone who can legitimately say they've written a book!

I'm still holding off on booking my Spring trip, hoping for some discounts or FD to come along. Meanwhile it seems Christmas is racing ever-closer.... wasn't it just Halloween yesterday??

Been a while since I've had time to post. I'm having internet/network problems at home, work is a freakin' mess, and also dealing with 'complications' on the social front. Nothing I can't deal with, but it's going to be a busy few weeks leading into the holidays.

Hopefully I'll find some time this weekend to start working on the Christmas tree ... mostly Scooby Doo and and Disney for the ornament theme this year

Hello folks! Officially no longer single now, got married on 12/1/12 (DH wanted an easy to remember anniversary )! I only have a few minutes to pop in (finals over the next 10 days, yuck!) but thought I'd share a picture or 2 from the big day. I should be able to return after finals are over, and begin planning our June trip to the world

I hope you, Mom and Dad have a great Christmas and New Year. We put up our tree over Thanksgiving weekend. We have some Disney ornaments but no Scooby Doo. I would love to see a picture of the finished product.

Good different or bad different? My kids all 3 loved this one....in fact they didn't mind missing Disney this year so much just because they knew test track was closed when we would have been there. Between TT and BTMR (their other favorite) changing it might be like a whole new Disney for them. Which, since their new stepdad, brother and sister have never been, could be a good thing

Thanks, everyone. I think I can speak for both of us that we are very, very happy. Couldn't have imagined I would be where I am now at this time last year, but wouldn't change it for the world

My tree has it's fair representation of Disney too! That's if I ever get it up. You should post pictures when it's done.

Hello from EPCOT




And, on Test Track. It all depends on how you like change. I still enjoy the ride. But, it's nothing like before to me. Don't really want to spoil it by going into further details
