People can be so stinky! My family just has different opinions on what we should do with our money. (including my aunt who goes to the casino TWICE A WEEK!) Yes, we will be in super saving mode but, come on! Brenda has 4... and will be getting #5 American Girl dolls... do you think she wants for anything??? And Gavin has enough Lego to carpet my living room!

I would have had to take pictures of the snake too, no one would have believed me otherwise. I have the same problem as hunter i joke to much. We had one at work one morning and no one believed me till I told them in they wanted me to work today they would get the snake out of my doorway so I could go in. He was hanging out on the filing cabinets. Guess he was looking for a plat of his land

I couldn't believe it was in the store! I'd have passed out if he crawled in the door with me.

Okay, so now I'm singing!

Snakes are second on my list of things I am terrified of. Heights is number 1.

I take bad firework pictures. My fancy camera doesn't do for me either! You got some good shots!

Youl should have seen how many I deleted.


There's a Snake in my Boot! I'm ok around snakes, as long as it's not coming after me. I've even pet one on purpose!

Now that'd have me passing out right on the spot!


I LOL"d when I noticed that! It was perfect!




YAY!! and I will just miss you by about 2 weeks. Your secret is safe with me!
Tammy, you should check out Jen and my TR's! We met in Nov, and had great trips! I bet the kiddos would like seeing all the pictures!

I'm fairly sure you're safe! Some of 'em are so heavy, I don't know that his swing would pack much of a punch anyway.

I wouldn't mind spotting an alligator myself. Snakes? No m'am!

Anyway - that's something I hope I never see!
I would have freaked out too! I hope that it's a once in a lifetime thing.

OMG about the snake . . . I can't even begin to tell you how freaked out I am about snakes. I have such a huge fear. My sister loves to tell the story of the time I jumped end-to-end over the full size seat of our van and her when she pointed out a snake in our garage. And my father always follows that story up with the time I ran from the back of our property and made it in to our house before he finished saying "oh, look, that's a big 'en" as he was lifting the snake out of our mulch pile. Yeah. I'm terrified.
Howdy! I'm so glad to have you onboard!

I'm laughing at your snakes stories! Not at you, 'cause I have a couple of my own. We were picking blackberries once and my daddy found a snake underneath a bush. He thought that it would be funny to throw it at me. Oh no! Not funny at all!

Don't get me started on the subject! We don't even tell John's family that we're going to Disney World any more. They are a bunch of money grubbing people who think that you aren't supposed to go on vacations in the first place. They just don't get it so why talk about it with them.

I forgot to see if you had a ticker! What are your dates in May? Our trips may overlap. And, rest assured, I'll be freaking out with you should we see another snake in Mousegears!

Lisa, I think you have that in spades when it comes to your kiddos, I don't think you have a thing to worry about when it comes to doing it right or wrong. You did it right.
Ah, that's sweet of you to say. I think that we've done a pretty good job so far and it sounds as if you have as well.

That's what I said! Nobody is going to believe that a snake was in Mouse Gears! Holy moley! I'd have had a fit if I found a snake in the office.

Family can be the worst. They always seem to think they have a right to tell you how to spend YOUR money. Unless I am asking to borrow money from you, you have no right for input. If would be different if my family was borrowing money from them and then going on vacation with it. As I said, my closest aunt and biggest complainer about our trips, goes to the Casino approx 200 miles away TWICE A WEEK!

It's funny how somebody else thinks they can tell you how to spend your money, isn't it?

Now he didn't look too harmless. But I know you really can't tell if they are poisonous or not by looking at them unless you are a pro or you work for Gator Boys.

Such excitement shopping. I will tell you this...although I am not "afraid" of snakes (my brother used to have a garter snake that I would hold all the time), I will be on the lookout the next time I am at MouseGears.

I just read about the snake....HATE THEM...WOULD HAVE PASSED OUT IF IT WAS ME. I would never think to look for them in the shops. I have seen them at the resorts and that freaks me out. How come all these things happen to you?[/I]

That's good. I think I remember on one of your other TR's you mentioned about posting pictures of them some time. It would be cool to see some of them. I remember walking into a shop at Disneyland that had various swords in it and one of them was a replica of Queen Elizabeth's fathers sword which she actually uses when she grants someone a knighthood. They only make a new sword fro a male monarch.
