Let's be Spontaneous!January '12- Sunrise Breakfast and EMH! 2 part update(3/11)

This trip was booked on a whim one cold Maine winter afternoon. We had returned from the Mouse House in June, and were not planning a return trip for at least a year. Until, I started pricing and then looking at crowds... and well the rest is history! There is a pretrip report that is scattered and short here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....1#post43415041

In this trip report you will find an obscene number of photos, two very quirky people, and you will see what happens when the planner doesn't plan!!

Details:
Dates: January 9th – January 15th, 2012
Dining Plan – Disney Dining
Resort – Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Jambo



How about some introductions!



This is Josh, the DH. He is a twenty something who didn’t quite know he had a love of the mouse until we went to Disney in 2010 to be married. This was his 3rd trip, and I would now qualify him as a Disney nut! He is a solider with the Army National Guard (this becomes important later) and in his final year of college. Josh is a big Muppet, and Toy Story fan. He likes to try new foods, and enjoys a good beer.


This is me, Beth. I am a twenty something with a passion for life that many people just don’t “get”. I currently work in a Financial Aid Office at a tiny University in Maine, where the DH and I met. I tend to obsessively plan. I love food, in general, and incorporate a little Disney into my everyday life when I can. This is my 4th trip to the Mouse House.





And this is Lucky AKA Dog Dog. Lucky is a 3 year old (next month) 90 something pound baby who has taken over our lives since he joined our family in March. Dog dog is where we will begin our journey…..

We left Monday morning, very early, so I knew that I needed to have everything in order and ready to go when Josh got home on Sunday (he had Army drill) So, I spent Sunday morning doing laundry, and cleaning up around the house, and then went with a friend to get our nails done.

Lucky didn’t want to eat breakfast, and after I convinced him, he was sick. Poor puppy didn’t feel well.
I didn’t think too much of it, because Lucky has caught a cold in the past. However, by the time Josh got home from drill, and we were starting to think about finishing our packing, we knew something was wrong. VERY wrong. Lucky started shaking, and begging to go outside, just to sit on the deck. I called the emergency vet, and they advised that we bring him in as soon as possible.
I was worried, as my baby looked like this



Instead of like this


Well 2 hours, and 3 medications later, we were headed out the door, with instructions to give our pet sitter. Lucky had an infection, and had been running a fever. I have to say, having someone you trust and know will take care of your pets makes all the difference when leaving on vacation. More so, when you are very worried!!!

We got home, ate a quick dinner, finished packing, and headed to bed. The alarm was set for 3:45, and I knew it was going to be a long day of travel!!

I'm here! I'm sorry Lucky got sick! It's always tough to leave your pets when you go on vacation, and especially hard if they are not feeling well. I hope that the pet sitter took good care of him and that he was all better by the time you got home!

Look what I just stumbled across! I'm sorry about Lucky. That's not a good way to start a trip, but I'm glad you could trust someone to take good care of him while you were gone.

I'm looking forward to reading about your trip.

YAY You are here! I thought of you every time I saw "Barfy" during our trip. DH thought I was a bit insane when I called him that

I would trust our house sitter with my life. She will be an RN in May, so I can't imagine anyone better to leave my sick pup with!

Glad you are following along! I don't have an adorable child like you do, but I treat my dog like a child! I am trying to convince my DH to join the DIS, as he is becoming a bit of a Disney nut... I will have to venture over to the dads board and see if he would like it there I think.
