Un-Tangled-Getting My Life Back....PTR!! TR Started! 5/30

"This is the story of how I died....." It's a good story, so don't think you need to look for another PTR that fast!!

Okay, so I didn't really die per se, but pretty much had given up on life as fully able bodied person. More on this later.

This trip is about LIFE!! And life more abundantly!! Which has been a promise given to me a long time ago, a promise I had come to think didn't apply to me any longer. Again...more on this later.

I am a believer. I won't try and convert anyone , I promise, but I do speak of it as it pertains to my life from time to time. I am as real as it gets, I make mistakes, get pissy and a let bad words slip from time to time (but not on here) and I am far from being perfect. I just don't want anyone to get the idea that I'm some goody-goody who isn't relatable, far from it really.

I've never written a PTR before, so let's get some other things out of the way about me....
I stink at grammar, I probably have punctuation in all the wrong places or not at all. I'm sure I make many other grammatical errors, (spelling ) as I'm sure Ms. Smidgy would point out if the great Nebo were writing this. But in all honesty..... I just don't care. If I don't get this out of the way I'll sit for many, many hours fretting over my grammar and will never get any where with this PTR. I'll just write what's in my head and heart and hope for the best.

I also probably won't do a lot of the typical things a lot of others do in a PTR or TR, such as games. But then again, who knows?!? I could change my mind! I will tell you who I am and who are the other leading characters are in my PTR aaaaaaand beyond that...I'm not rightly sure!!

I'll more than likely do some of this PTR in backstory since a lot has happened already, so bare with me. I'm a girl of details (what girl isn't) so I might get a little wordy at times.

I need to learn how to do links (so I can spare y'all of that mess), so I'll learn that, do my workout and come back and do introductions and give you some low downs on some of what's been planned already!!

The name MAROO caught my eye! I am eager to see if it is THE Maroo!! I am a believer of miracles and this looks like it might have some of that in there as well...and your avatar is often my go-too princess pic, one of my faves. Eager to see what unfolds here....

Phew! All caught up!

What an inspiring story! As someone that has struggled with weight for most of my life, your story really hit home. I am trying to start the healthier me journey this week so I really appreciate everything you shared.

Love the falling in love with Disney story! I also had Disney records and loved Disney movies. I took my first and only trip to WDW as a kid when I was 14 in 1987. The love turned into obsession when we took Jordan for her first trip in April 2007 at age 3 1/2. Well, everyone can see by my signature what that trip led to - LOL!

Can't wait to read more!

Subbing.

I enjoy TR's with a back story. It somehow seems appropriate for a Disney trip.

Never mind the grammar, just write what's on your heart.

Looking forward to it!
