In the world we live today and the mess it is in and the mess it has caused its people. Everything is negative and where I work everything is negative and I get a little selfish I have to admit because I will get on here and read about everyone's Disney adventures and I'll remember back to my trips to Disney and I refuse to be negative. I'm just 40 days away before I get to be back in my happy place but not only that I get to see my daughters reaction when she sees the castle for the first time AND that alone makes me even more excited!!
With the government shut down. Is this going to affect disney in any way?
I believe there are several people who have anywhere from 38 to 45 days left before we all go to Disney. Who would be interested in a meet up? We aren't doing the park hopper passes this time so depending on which park and what day would be best for everyone. Or maybe we could work it out that everyone meets up at DTD...what would y'all like to do?
It's the Cadillac of tent guys and that's what we are sleeping in come November when we are in Disney. We could literally fit our mini van inside it if we needed to!! We put it together so we could seam seal it while we have some dry weather tomorrow but the kids are really excited now :D
I haven't been able to post much as of late because I'm working at least 6 days a week now and I just finished a stretch of 8 days straight we are beyond under staffed but anyhow we only have 45 days left woo hoo!!!! Can't wait and we usually try to take another adult with us just to bring along generally someone who hasnt been to disney before and everyone we invited either couldn't come or bailed on us :( but that's ok
AWESOME NEWS Y'ALL!!! Not disney related but for y'all that have followed me with my knee surgery I went to the ortho specialist this morning but I don't have to have surgery any time soon!! He put me on different anti inflammatory meds and gave me a steroid shot to the knee but he said he sees no reason for surgery!! I'm beyond happy about this thank y'all for all the prayers and pixie dust because God surely worked a miracle on this
70 days just 70!! My Lil princess keeps saying lets go to Disney world lol but I have a few other countdowns that aren't Disney related but they both could use some pixie dust. As I have said in a prior post I'm facing a knee surgery so my appointment with the ortho specialist in sept 5th. this will be to determine when my surgery will take place and I don't know the exact date yet but I will be having an interview for a promotion at prison I work at. Everyone have a magical day
Had a small procedure on my right arm today had a spot that looked like skin cancer but GREAT news it isn't skin cancer was a small cyst of some sort that makes me VERY happy and I've only got 80 days left before being back to my happy place!!
So I had an interview this morning with KYDOT which is Kentucky department of transportation and if I get this job I will still remain a state employee but it is mainly a day shift job with weekends and holidays off for the most part and even though it is a slight pay decrease than I am now. It is ALOT less stress and I'm willing to take a pay cut for my sanity lol but on to Disney news we are in the 80's on the countdown!!!
Has anyone ever done the camp site in November? Did you like it? How was the weather? If it storms real bad are there places to go for shelter?
Ok so I got some good news from work yesterday but got some bad news from the doctor this morning. My days off every week since I've started out at the prison about a year ago have been Wednesday Thursday well starting September first my days off go to Sunday Mondays!! And my captain changed my vacation to fit my days off so instead of being there November 7-12 we will be there Nov. 10-15 which means we can get the free dining!!!! But this morning I got the results back from my MRI in my right knee :( my doc has referred me to an ortho specialist I have little to no cartilage and I have a cyst on the back on my knee which I will have to have surgery and I hate surgery I really do but I'm looking at surgery at the beginning of the year just depends in what the specialist says.
Ok so I've read the post on the paying for refills if u buy the mug...I absolutely love the hot coco u can get at the resorts. My question is..is there a place on site where you can buy the hot coco? Oh and I can drink that stuff year round lol
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who said they were praying and/or sending pixie dust my way. The past few days have been rather tough on me and my family. The funeral for my aunt was very nice and everything will get better with time. I appreciate everything everyone has said from the bottom of my heart thank you!
I would like to say thank you to all who have prayed and sent pixie dust my way. Finding out just minutes before I went to work yesterday that my aunt passed away that was really tough on me. We have visitation tomorrow and the funeral on Thursday. I know it's not Disney related but y'all are as much as family to me as they are. I just wanted to say thank you
112 days left!!! ALMOST at double digits WOOHOO!! Then I will finally will be back home my Disney home that is
We took our middle two kids to watch monsters university last night and they both loved it. My daughter would say hey daddy monsters go rawr lol it was too cute.
Someone help shed some light on this topic. I had heard today that Disney might do away with the cards or the key to the world as I call it. Your resort and ticket card and they are suppose to switch to wrist bands. Anyone else heard anything like this and is it true?
Sitting here in the hotel room and everyone has practically passed out the wife and baby are asleep the daughter is sleeping on me and our oldest is just about out. We are in St. Louis for a family reunion and we went to the zoo today which admission is free! It's a 90 acre zoo and it still doesn't compare to animal kingdom. I caught myself saying to the wife you know Hun if we were on disneys safari ride we would get much better pictures. She always answered I know I know :D
Setting off fireworks and watching fireworks was nice but once you see Disney fireworks regardless of what time of year it is nothing compares nothing!!
Vacation #1 is just a few days away it isn't a Disney one but its a vacation none the less and BBNMinnie and I will be celebrating our wedding anny July 2nd so lots going on and She and I have been talking about DVC and with the way prices have been going up on tickets and no sign of ever slowing down. A family of 6 like mine may be better off being DVC memebers.
