Although, right now, I'm watching the Rhythmic Gymnastics and I feel like a fat lazy cow!! These chicks are amazing!

Got my group set for a Photopass share! I am a part of a Parenting community online that has a small group of Disney Lovers and I'm leading up a group from that site. I'm excited!!

Talked to Corey about the whole issue with the Previews starting on our FIRST MK day and I think he is seeing my reasoning for wanting to arrive on Saturday. So FINGERS CROSSED that either Airtran/Southwest has a good deal on flights or that we can book it QUICK on the road! If we leave Friday when I get out of work, then we could get to Nashville and crash and leave the bulk (TWELVE HOURS!) of the driving on Saturday. I really hope that we can fly now. In fact, I have decided if I can get a decent fly TO Orlando, then maybe we could rent a car and just drive home.

We've changed our plans again... going to go ahead a cruise for my 50th Birthday in January instead of Disney... (Didn't want to lose my $500.00 deposit from Carnival Cruise Line)

but

I booked a Huge Disney BeachClub vacation for next October 2013... (A long way's off - 423 days away!!! )
For my sweet hubby's 50th birthday... (He loves Disney more than me )

Page TWO!??! Thanks for the bump!

I totally understand about not wanting to lose the deposit money. Where is your cruise going to be? Beachclub is my Deluxe dream resort! One day!!!! You know, I haven't read HP, but I do want to go see what all the buzz is about! You should check out Jenn's TR about their last trip if you haven't yet. She took some great pictures over there!

How are you lovely people doing?

Band Camp has started… and seriously, the weather is beautiful! I'm jealous of these kids- they aren't dealing with the 100 degree plus temps we've been having all summer. Hopefully things are going to go well for him!

My job is going well. I've finally figured out what I'm doing and today I had EVERYTHING finished before I had to leave the office!

One of my jobs is opening mail. (Have I mentioned that this is an entry-level position????) Anyway, I opened something today that made me do a little dance. It was an invitation for a seminar hosted by DISNEY. Now, this wasn't anything to do with my job, but still, it was nice to have that Disney logo sitting on my desk for a while. I don't think I've ever seen a Disney healthcare seminar, but you know, us Disney lovers come in all forms!

Oh and a PSA for all of you. PLEASE for the love of Popcorn do NOT staple your check to your statement. I HATE having to pull those stupid staples out and they HAVE to be pulled out without causing much damage to the checks….

Glad the new job is going well! And thank you for the PSA, I promise, from this day forward, I will never staple my checks to my bill again. Although I'm not sure I even own a stapler, so that shouldn't be a problem.

It's good to hear that the job is going so well. I guess people don't read those little notes on their bills that say not to staple their check to the stub/bill.

Just know if you EVER send a Bill to ME, I will come to your house- cause I think I know how to get there still!

Oh, no… it's just a handful of special people out there. I think the idea is that the check won't get lost??? I don't mind the taped checks (get those two) but the staples drive me up the wall, because I have to stop and get my staple remover out and pry it off of there so we can run the check through the reader.

Well, these are some of the same people that call to ask me what the balance is on the bill that they just got… Don't get me started! I know healthcare billing can be difficult, but some of the questions I answer……….

I have been doing the happy dance ALL DAY LONG! I saw the announcement that on Aug 20th they are opening BOG for Ressies during our trip! The JOY that has been on my face all day wouldn't stop! Even with crabby patients!

So, HOPEFULLY my wonderful TA will be able to book us!! Reminds me, I need to email you about that!

Okay. Hold on to your hats people, we have some

CHANGES!!!!!



I just booked our flights out of Indy!!! And they were UNDER $300 a piece! I am doing Catie as a lapbaby and praying that we get to sit together. Airtran had a flight with only 4 seats left for the return on Saturday morning for $157. Seriously, that flight was not there before, so I'm thinking that someone canceled their flight and it was waiting there for me!

Okay, so bring on the "flying with small children" advice people!! I'm gonna need it!!!!!!

Okay, so I posted last night, but now I have time to explain what all this means.

We are arriving on Saturday evening now. So, not only are we flying, but I'm gaining a whole extra day in the World!!!!

So, that means that we have to adjust our dates for the week!

Okay, we now activate plan B. Which is:
  • Saturday- Fly from Indy to Orlando, flight leaves at 4:30.
    HOPEFULLY the girls will go to sleep fairly easily by the time we get in the room and get settled. Arrival is 6:30, so that should put us in a room by 8, right? That's Catie's bedtime.
  • Sunday- Magic Kingdom
    This day will be everything that we might want to do outside of Fantasyland. I'm probably going to need to move my Plaza Ressie to Sunday...
  • Monday- Animal Kingdom
    I'll want to make a Tusker House ressie for this morning!
  • Tuesday- Hollywood Studios
    This stuff stays the same. Hollywood and Vine Breakfast
  • Wednesday- Magic Kingdom
    I have Park Fare booked for this morning, but now I'm reconsidering it… I think we should be at the park Bright and early and just hang out here. I want to make my Be Out Guest dinner on this evening.
  • Thursday Rest!
    We will have Thanksgiving dinner over at Whispering Canyon Cafe at lunch and then ice cream for dinner at Beaches and Cream… AND we are still kinda-sorta-maybe-thinking about heading to HS to see the lights… we just have a tradition about seeing Christmas lights on Thanksgiving!
  • Friday- Epcot
    Akershus in the morning and the POSSIBLY the CP that evening.
  • Saturday- Fly Home! Our flight leaves MCO at 10:00 am. So there will be nothing more than a quick bite to eat and packing this morning.
