Hopefully it is more money, shorter hours and plenty of time to spend on the Dis boards.
Thanks. It would be more money. The hours would be 8pm to 4am so being better hours would be subjective. The healthcare package is better than my wife's and we'd only have to spring for daycare 2 days a week.

Well, my Canadian friends, I may have spoken too soon about us being up that way. We were thinking of taking a little Spring Break trip up to see Niagara Falls with a Toronto detour later this spring. But I may need to hold onto that cash, because...

Our wait list came through, and we'll be able to stay at Aulani this summer! Now I just have to pay for it.

I haven't told my wife yet. Her birthday is next month, so I think I'm going to make it a surprise for her then.

Remember that whole "I need to pay for it" part? In other words, no.

I thought about updating my TR but then I realized she'd see it there. I'm fully confident this is a safe spot.

Congratulations!!!! We always talk about the big island, but never seem to pull the trigger. Sounds like a great birthday present. My birthday is in August. Just sayin.

That would ^%$%^ if this was the one day she checked over here. We'll just blame it on CJ. Come to think of it, he hasn't responded to my PM. Maybe the sharks got him this weekend.

I'm critically on the fence about Disney on Ice this year. It comes to town every February. and we've gone for the last 3 years now. My kids love it and it's inexpensive.

This year, it is in town 4 weeks before we go to The World. I'm currently worrying (more than I should) that going to Disney on Ice will detract from the Disney experience since my son is Mickey Mouse obsessed and has never seen the real thing before. If he sees him (and all his friends) right in town, it'll be less special when we meet them at THEIR house.

or maybe i'm just over thinking.....HALP!

Well, Hawaii is no Toronto, but good nonetheless...good score!

Hope it comes through. More money is usually a good thing.

That's great Mark. Hawaii will be an awesome birthday present for your wife.

I might be in the minority here, but I just can't justify the expense of going. Any time DW has taken the kids, it's been from winning the tix.

Congrats, but have you really thought this through? You surprised her with Animal Kingdom for Christmas, now Aulani for her birthday. I wonder what she will be expecting for your anniversary.
