We fly from Salt Lake to Minneapolis, then Orlando... so I'm hoping the weather cooperates. Looks like lousy weather in Minneapolis, but it doesn't seem to be affecting air travel.

Headed to Universal Fri-Sat, then DCL (Dream) from Sunday - Thurs, then WDW (POP) from Thurs - Mon.

Thanks for all the advice you've provided as we've prepped for this trip - your input has been invaluable!
Congrats on the trip. I have not been on a Disney property in over 17 years.

So far the only news is the next season will not be on cartoon network. Rumor is they will move it to Disney XD but nothing is confirmed. The diehards are up in arms right now.

Good luck.

I would get up and eat hotdogs then wonder why i was so thirsty the next day...I do recall just as the ambien would start to work that I would see things come out of the TV at me...I got into a fight with a topiary that Shari had made one day because I thought it was someone crouched down in the bedroom. I would duck to get away from angels swooping down to get me Ambien does some crazy stuff to you...I took it on call one night and went to wrk did a patient and back home and in the bed with no memory of doing anything when I went to work the next morning.
Yikes. That is like the questionnaire when I had my sleep study.

After what has it been now....just over 10 years now, I FINALLY got the phone call.....being transferred to another store in two weeks. Got the call this morning. Boss wasn;t too happy about it though. Time for a fresh start
Store is even a bit closer now, just one bus to get there....
Congrats.

Hey guys. Having a week here.


Yesterday DW calls with a stalled out car. Fortunately just needed a boost to the battery and all was fine.

Today she calls at work and says we have water in the basement. Recovery team got here at 2:30 and are still tearing out the drywall etc. sump pump got overloaded and the breaker flipped. No battery backup pump.

Fortunately we have good insurance. The agent we work with has covered DW's family since day 1 of his career. (He inherited DW's family as a client from his Dad). Turns out his brother runs the restoration company. Nice having connections that know the system. Also had my neighbor to do the plumbing work and another friend from the Parrish checking out the furnace.

All in all, not horrible as it is just stuff. The worst was water got into DD's school archives. We have all the papers laid out to dry and hopefully salvage some.

I'm exhausted right now, more from adrenaline crash than anything else.

Wow, that's a tough run. The positive is that all the pieces are falling into place for a quick and (hopefully) painless recovery. Good luck..

Shari sat praying for them to get the plane fixed. I had already given up and was praying for it to be just quick and painless After about 45 minutes of total mayhem on the plane the pilot got things under control and we went on to Toronto. The flight attendants broke out the alcohol at about 9am and was giving everyone freebies..as much as the wanted compliments of Air Canada I looked at the lady and told her thanks but no thanks and that we had 7 hours left on the flight and that I was not wanting to bust the pearly gates open at 700 miles an hour with alcohol on my breath!

Sounds like that flight attendant needed to rethink her career.
