After 5 mos of being out of work, I start a new job tomorrow. Bad part is I've grown to like staying home! Good news is job=$$=Disneyland trip next year! Wish me luck!
πŸ‘ - DisneyGrandma  683.3 #236 3:46PM
Yay and congrats!!! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3953.4 #24 4:03PM
And I'm going to be working for Wyndham Vacation Ownership (not selling timeshare...doing the contracts and closing the deals), which has sales offices in Anaheim.  Hhmmm...maybe a transfer in my future!?! - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 4:33PM
Yay! πŸŽ‰ good luck!  First days of work bring back the same emotions as first days of school for me, lol.  Hope everything goes smoothly--you're gonna do great!  (And, I love your shirt: for the last few years, on every trip we take, I want to buy one, but I always forget!  So funny!) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 4:41PM

I am happy to report that I am once again gainfully employed!  I start my new position with Wyndham Vacation Ownership on Wednesday (no, I'm not selling timeshare...I'll be doing the contracts and closing the deals).  A cool benefit is that there are offices everywhere...including Anaheim and San Diego!  
Congratulations! I hope everything works out for you. - disneyland4me  240.5 #1339 11:48AM
That's wonderful, MDM!  Congratulations!  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 1:16PM
Thank you ladies!  The thought of going back to work has me depressed.  It's actually been nice not working the past 5 months, but I knew that it had to end. - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 3:40PM
I understand. Β My hubby was out of work for about 9 months, and while it was of course tough financially, it was so nice being able to spend so much time together. Β I got so used to him being home when I got off work, and going for runs or to movies or out to dinner all the time--now I come home to an empty house, and its lonely, lol. Β He has a really long commute, so he's gone 11-12 hours a day now. Β I wish it was possible to work 5-6 hours a day and still be able to make a good living, haha. Β  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 11:29PM
My commute is going to be around 30 min each way and you should hear me grumble about it!  It's not that bad, but there is only one road in/out of that side of the island (Lahaina), so if there's an accident or a brush fire, you're stuck!  Oh well...usually only hapens 2 or 3 x's a year. - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 4:35PM
I'm so excited for you!  When do you start?   - Mrs.mouse  515.8 #346 7:01PM
I started today.  Not sure how I'm going to like it. The bosses from Oahu were here so it was a strange day.  Also discovered that even though I've said that I don't want to manage people, I still feel like a manager and it's sort of weird (I'll get over that part).  I let you know if I like it in a week or so - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 11:52PM

Check out the poster in the Hilo Hatties store in Lahaina (it was closed so I couldn't try it)!
Omg, Hilo Hattie's!!  I forgot about that store!  Do they still give you a shell lei and POG juice?  And now you could buy a Dole Whip, too?!   Heaven. ✨🌺🍦 - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 4:38PM
As far as I know you still get the "aloha greeting". I actually really like their stores! - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 5:16PM

Oh ladies....I've had nothing but sad news since I returned from DLR.  My cousin, who's the same age as me passed away unexpectedly on Friday after a short battle with internal melanoma.  Then yesterday, our Veterinarian called and let me know that a small tumor that they removed (while he was boarded) turned out to be melanoma!  I need some cyber hugs and pixie dust...
Oh my goodness, MDM, I am so very sorry!  What a strange coincidence.  Big, huge hugs to you--and, I'm sending lots of pixie dust and positive thoughts your way, and a big hug to Pono as well (hope I spelled that right).  How is he feeling at the moment?   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 6:55PM
vet just called.  they think that he's going to be fine and need no other treatment!  - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 3:04PM

I don't get the pink tutu hat (and yes, there are pink ears somewhere in there!)
It's probably for all of us big bummed gals who always wanted to wear a tutu but couldn't because it made us look too bottom heavy. Now we have the option to wear it on our heads and even things outπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - LittleAprilShowers  557.1 #305 2:29PM
Okay you look adorable, but yeah I don't get them either  - Linzee  868.7 #173 2:29PM
Whaaat?  Do people really wear that?  Reminds me of when my sis and I were little and would run around with tutus on our heads because we didn't want to go to ballet class πŸ˜‚ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 2:30PM
I only saw one person actually wearing it. I thought it was a skirt on her head, until I saw it in the store! - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 2:37PM
I wonder if it is from the tutus worn in Fantasia by the Hippos?   - verolly  739.4 #211 2:38PM

From my Partners magazine...a copy of a memo dtd 7/11/55 from Joe Fowler to the head of landscaping asking when the Mickey planter at the park's entrance would be planted!
Typed in triplicate no doubt (that's carbon paper in between the pages to make carbon copies...no copy machines back then). Typed for Joe Fowler by someone with initials ES (JF:es). Ah, the good old days!😹 - debbiev  794.5 #194 7:27PM
Remember when I'd make a typing mistake and had to correct all copies. UGH - DisneyGrandma  683.3 #236 7:40PM
I know! How did we do it? - debbiev  794.5 #194 8:21PM
Remember when there was different color Liquid Paper to go with all the form copies! I hated making a mistake!LOL - Boundin  510.2 #352 8:38PM
Boundin I forgot about that...or maybe I blocked it out!😹 What a pain that was! - debbiev  794.5 #194 9:19PM
I remember the ink eraser pencil with the brush on the other end. That was before liquid paper or the white correction tape. I know I'm aging myself. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - DisneyGrandma  683.3 #236 10:12PM

Back at home and totally depressed!  I actually weighed this morning....drumroll...gained 5 lbs but not worried.  I'm going back to Jenny and I'm sure it'll come back off (and I throughly enjoyed every bite!).
I'm sure it was worth it - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1176.4 #112 5:02PM

Can someone explain where the buried arch in front of HM is? I looked but couldn't find it and asked the CM at who looked at me like I was crazy! I'm in line at HM now but want to look again when we get off. Mahalo!
It's more in front of Cafe orleans, stand at the ROA, turn around and you will see it with a terraced wall built around it - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3953.4 #24 3:22PM

This is the Mickey ornament that the lifeguard at GCH gave me yesterday. It's super cool. Does anyone know the backstory of these (who makes them)?
Too bad no one knows...I was hoping that I could find out to make them (although I'm the least craftiest person ever)! - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 4:31PM
