They Tried To Make Me Go To Rehab, But I Said No No No! Updt 11/7: Solo no more Pg.27

With apologies to Miz Amy Winehouse......

Discalimer: There are no addictions nor drunkeness related to this TR -- for that you'd have to check out Jordan's hot sweaty Asian TR!


I wasn't going to write a PTR.

Don't get me wrong. I love the TR/PTR section of the Dis. It's the first section I check whenever I log on.

My thing is I get too deep into writing that housework and "real" work tend to suffer. Greatly. And for one who loves to shop as much as myself, I cannot afford that.

So why did I decide to write this PTR anyway?!

I woke up at 6 am today and started doing Disney laundry. Y'all know what I'm talking about -- all the NEW shirts, pants, shorts, socks and (ahem) undergarments that you've bought in the months preceeding y'all's DIsney trips.

I am leaving for the World in {looks at calendar} 10 days!

While waiting for the laundry to dry, I had an epiphany of sorts. I came up with at PTR/TR title! And because the title is so friggin' brilliant (vain, vain, vain!) I couldn't let it go to waste by just keeping it inside my head where it would get filed beneath the "need to lose weight" thought.

So, anyone care to make sense of the title?

But just to clarify, my life in general is pretty much rated "G" (in other words, contains nothing in theme nor language that would offend ). See my old TR for evidence.

So while I leave y'all pondering, let me share this (favorite) photo I took while the boys and I vacationed in L.A.:



More musings later.

I loved your last TR and I was just thinking to myself that I hoped you would write one for your July trip

I'll sign on! I'm guessing you have a little Disney Addiction and that has to do with your trippie title! I'm with you, no Disney Rehab for me either! Addicted to the Mouse and Proud! LOL!

Ahhhh! That is a very educated guess, and really quite true -- I too am proud to confess my Disney addiction!

But, there's more to the trippie title...hope you'll continue reading along....

Btw, let me also confess that I've been shyly lurking in your TR You see, we both are Moms who are in need/want of a solo trip!

We/I have 2 schedules planned. One for an all-out commando attack on the World (again) and one where we take our own sweet time and perhaps even skip AK (OMG, did I just say that?!!! that last part doesn't sound like me at all! )

How I went to Disney World for Free (well, almost free!)

This is why:



I practice in the field of Rehabilitation (the Physical kind).

Our yearly conference (lucky for me) will be happening in ORLANDO next week!

Of course, I added a few days to my stay so I can feed my Disney addiction. Actually, by the time I finished planning my trip, I ended up having more Disney days than conference days! P.S. Just don't tell the boss that. Especially since it is an all-expenses/company sponsored paid trip. Yep -- Hotel, Food, Taxi, Airfare. All I need now are park tickets. Now wait you say, how about the rest of the family? There'll be more about that later.

For now, all I can think about is that I am going to a Rehab conference to cure my Disney addiction! MomofCKJ was half right (see posts above).

I have to go force the boys go to bed now. They've sneakily been playing Guitar Hero since I started typing on the Dis. For those of you who haven't "met" me or my two little guys yet, here's a photo of us at Disneyland (circa Jan 2007):



I'll try to post an update later. Thank you for encouraging me to tell my story.
