We have NO idea when or where it happend. In a way, I'm relieved to find out NOW and not when we were driving 1,000 miles to Orlando!!!

I hear you all on the unexpected expenses...and the untimely passing of friends. It really sucks!

I usually love my job! I am a MA in my office and the doctor that I work for wanted us to wear dress clothes..appear to be more professional, unfortunately we are stuck with a spoiled new nurse practioner that just graduate and she's been throwing a fit that we wear dress clothes and steal her thunder! so the main owner of the company had given us 2 days to come up with scrubs! I am not happy! I swear I truly wonder if she has ever worked a day in her life! We too are on limited funds and I have to get new tires for my car before we leave, and now I have to buy stupid scrubs too becuase she's a darn crybaby!

Don't these people know you need every penny for WDW? I had to go out and get all new work clothes and shoes last month for a promotion that I got, and my raise barely made a difference on my paycheck, not like I thought . Darn those taxes!

Dis you check WalMart for scrubs? Some actually have a good selection, and cute prints. And of course the price is right.

Ok, if someone could slow down the calendar "just a bit" I'd really appreciate it! Time is moving WAY too fast for me. I've been trying with the daily goals, but somehow I feel really behind.

This week I have to get the autograph book, planner updated, and tshirts made! I hope it all just falls into place and I can then just do the little things, like decide which backpack to take. LOL!

The pants at walmart..the smalls are too big yet too short and the mediums are way to big but closer to the right length. I got some the office gave us 100 bucks I was able to get 3 pairs of pants for 70 bucks! Insane! But I figure that I will wear a plain t-shirt with them..and I spoke to the dr i work for and he said that we will be back into dress clothes before we know it..so I am hoping he is right..

Sad, that is such a waste of money! (if you are back in dress clothes...what will you do with the scrubs?) I hope it works out for you in the end.

Oh my goodness that's funny!

An October Trip to the World..

Hey! I just found this thread and wanted to say hello! DS15 and I are headed to Florida in 15 days on October 5th. His friend is coming along so there will be the three of us. We'll spend 4 days with the free Quick Service Dining at Pop Century, including a couple days at the parks and MNSSHP on the 8th. On the 9th, we are doing a 3 day RCL (unfortunately not DCL because they are in dry dock then) cruise from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas. Then we will spend the last 2 nights at Old Key West on rented points and venture to Busch Gardens Tampa, then one last day at WDW.

We are really looking forward to a nice fall break from the boys' school and to exploring the parks in October!

I cannot believe that some of you are down to single digits

I finally found something I had been searching out all summer. Last night, in my hunt for disposable waterproof cameras, I found waterproof id holders that go around you neck. I have been searching for just the perfect one (DH is so picky).

Goal for this week...make a list of my goals for following weeks.
