Thanks Jack! So far so good I would say. I'm wading through all the forms the State wants us to have. Gracious, the paperwork! I feel like I need a compass, a map and a seeing eye dog just to get through the labyrinth. Why they can't just use bullet points and say bring these five things and your money I will never understand.

Kevin discussed the 2014 DIS exclusive Ireland trip on the podcast today. Is there anyone from our merry band of travelers considering this trip? I'm debating between the Ireland trip and the September trip. The September trip will work out better timing wise...but Ireland has been at the top of my travel wish list for a long time. The Ireland trip also includes my birthday....Happy Birthday to me?

Cathie has been reading the Irish Times on her Kindle for several years now. Where do you think she wants to go?

I'll drink to Ireland on your birthday.

Me too! I will definitely toast you on your birthday. Buy you a drink even, should you go to Ireland. Twist, twist. Are you still with your trainer? I joined weight watchers. Wish me luck.

Lauren, are you finished with the mountain of paperwork yet? I hope all is going well with Jeri's work.

I'm debating both trips as well, not sure which one I'd choose.

How could you chose anything over a trip that includes (at least it has historically included) the opportunity to "taste the good life at the Guinness Storehouse®."

OK seriously, the other trip would undoubtedly be ultra cool too.

Y'all know me, I want to go everywhere! And Ireland is really, really high up on my list. But I've got two kinda issues. 1, I don't know how we're going to be set up money-wise next May. Hopefully great! But Ireland is a big commitment for a hopefully. 2, I've already booked a cruise with Tracey for Alaska over my birthday for that year. (It's over July 29 so feel free to come with!) And I've really been wanting to go to Alaska for a while now and have even booked it before and moved it a couple of times for other things. Plus, Alaska is cheaper than Ireland so that part is nice. No matter what happens I'm not in a position to put down a deposit on May 22 to hold our spots anyway. Not that I haven't spent the last two hours with my trust abacus and computer trying ideas and pricing things out. Ireland is soooo cooooolllll! But Alaska is pretty neato too. Plus, hey, my birthday with bad Disney cake! What's not to love about that I ask ya?!?!?

So that's what's pinging around my head at the moment on Ireland!

Thanks, Cathie, for asking after Jeri. He's been on his own for three weeks now, and so far so good. Things have been very positive and we're legit with the State and the Feds so that's good too. We have a bank account and accept PayPal and everything! I'm still a bit nervous and keeping my fingers crossed. Jeri on the other hand keeps saying gleefully that it's only going to get hotter! I've never seen him so excited for the summer to come before. It's a little disturbing.

PS: I lost 30 pounds with Weight Watchers! You can do it too! I know you can! Good luck!!!!!

Lauren,

Alaska sounds like fun. We went several years ago on Norwegian, and would love to go back on Disney. A great birthday present. I really hope that you and Jeri can (and want to) come on the Ireland trip. It wouldn't be the same without you. I'm glad to hear that all is legit, and more importantly that business is going well. I feel sure that it will get hotter, and so will Jeri's business.

Thanks for the encouragement on WW. I would never have thought that you ever needed to lose even a pound. I'm trying to stay with it and make better food choices. Exercise and staying active seems to matter more than what I eat (within reason) but everyone says the opposite for them.

The Guinness Storehouse sounds awesome, I love anything involving beer!

I made my decision last night, I'm choosing Ireland. I like the dates of the trip, and that I can save a vacation day by going over Memorial Day. Very excited!

I am still with my trainer...6 months now. It was one of the best decisions I could have made. The trainer is great and so encouraging! I'm also technically doing WW but have been a little slack lately. I know it works though. Good luck on your WW's journey! You'll do great!

I'm also leaning toward Ireland over the other trip...but I'm putting my decision off to the last minute.

Lauren - I'm glad things are going well with Jeri's business! He's right...its only going to get hotter. The Alaska trip sounds fabulous. Alaska is also at the top of my wish list. We'll miss you guys on the ABD adventures though...but I do get to see you this December which is a definite plus!

This was definitely a consideration.

We actually had ABD create a whole new departure designed to include Memorial Day.

While I dont have this issue anymore (I have a great Boss ), I used to slice my vacation days with a razor blade to get the most out of them.

Anytime I can save y'all a vacation day...I do my best.

I expect you to be on the Ireland trip, young lady.

I'm certain that you and Jeri can come up with an unnecessary organ or two.

I keep saying I don't know what I'm going to spend my second kidney on, but it's going to be epic!
