So glad they still had spots available on the tour - I hate when I wait for a day to arrive and then when it does I completely forget...drives me crazy! I'm glad it worked out.

Good Luck on the move - such a big job and with many people to care for in the midst you'll be extra tired but ready for your Disney break in a couple weeks.

Take care!

I'm usually dialing the phone at 7:59am in anticipation of calling Disney for ressies.......Its not like me to forget something so important. I guess the moving, everything that's been going on with the kids & something I'm personally dealing with right now......just not feeling myself.....so very happy it worked out!!

I am ready for that break that's for sure......this move isn't going as smoothly as I hoped....in fact we don't hardly have a thing packed which isn't good. Ugh....really need to get back at it.......

Just think when you get all settled into the house and the hard work is done, the trip will be upon you and there will be time for relaxing and fun. (great now Dr. Seuss is creeping into my adult conversations). Been working on reading skills with my youngest and rhyming words are great for word recognition. Anyway I can't wait to hear all about your trip. My Disney vacation for 2011 never came to be so I will make the journey through your trip report. Shhhhh don't tell anyone but I spent 4 hours the other day reading your 4000 picture trip report instead of studying and felt like I was on vacation with you . So I am looking forward to your Christmas report and hearing about the Christmas tour and hearing if the expense is worth it.

It's a bummer you didn't get to go this year but glad you enjoyed following along in at least one of my TR's. I like to include as much info & pics as possible........can't wait to start snapping pictures of all the christmas stuff!!!!

I'll be glad when the move is done but then comes the fun part cleaning up the old place....really hard to be motivated to go back to the old place....ick!!

Well Laurie I totally get what you mean about the trip. I hope it works out be totally understand about not taking the family. We really prob shouldn't be going on our two trips BUT this one next month is totally bargain basement. We got that really cheap airfare, are staying in a super cheapo room and will not be doing any big fancy meals or any extras. Just looking forward to seeing the stuff that comes with the ticket like fireworks, small world etc and we leave 1 month from tomorrow so like you I can't WAIT!

Hope things start going smoother on your move and I agree with smiles. Once you get all moved in I am sure you will have a lot of stress off your shoulders and heck it will be time for your trip then!!

I'll be glad to be done with all the moving stuff....the packing & unpacking can be a project, but I think making all the arrangements is more of a pain: transfering schools (elementary & early intervention & all the paperwork that goes with that), starting & stopping utilities (only one was a transfer), getting the new place up to snuff to do the move in & then having to get the old place up to snuff so my parents don't get caught up in the crossfires of our psycho mgmt company since they had to co-sign. Moving truck rental, picking up much needed replacement furniture, etc, etc. Oh the biggest issue I'm having is I gave the adoption asst my new address which means I have to make a change with our Oregon Health Plan insurance for the kids. Since we're changing counties, we supposedly can't keep our dr for the kids....well that went over like a lead balloon....so now trying to fight that so we can keep the kids pediatrician.......ack! December 5th is the big day.....we turn in keys to the old place.....then & only then will things start settling.......as soon as we're out of the old place!!! My trip Dec 6-8 is ideally timed to celebrate!!!

Wow. The kids changing schools and a new pediatrician ugh! With the kids special needs and their trouble of overstimulation maybe you can convince them that changing pediatricians now would not be beneficial and could possibly even harmful for Machayla due to her recent problems. See if you can get the pediatriacian to support you not having to switch, couldn't hurt to get him involved if your willing to drive.

We're working with the pediatrician to be able to continue care of the kids.....it's just frustrating that since it's a state run insurance that I don't get a say in this process!! They're my kids & I want the best I can get them....even if it is medicaid!!

Anyways......hoping things will pan out over the next few days.

I know you'll keep fighting for your kids and pray that everything works out.

Yesterday I posted on the Christmas Superthread that the dates for the Candy Canes had been released.......not that I thought I'd actually be lucky enough to get one of those but it sure would be nice!!! Unfortunately, the only day they're doing it is on the day I arrive. It's a Magic Morning, so unless I was there long before park opening for the MM.....there'd be no way to get a ticket. I won't see the entrance until around 10:30am so I guess no Candy Cane Dash for me.

Sounds like they're kinda changing how it's done too. Used to be you'd hoof it to the candy shop to get your ticket which would allow you to purchase 2 candy canes.......I always thought it was a bad idea to have a stampede running down Main Street..... Now they'll hand out the tickets at the entrance that you can take to the candy shop to purchase ONE candy cane. So I think it will cut down on the mad rush in the park.....but will now cause one going thru security & to the front gates.

Kinda sorry I'll miss out on all that excitement.....but then again, probably glad I'll miss it....since "limited" amt of anything popular can make for some really ugly people & behaviors......not so "disney-esque".

Wow, I really feel outta sorts......been offline since Sunday night but it seems much longer than that with the move. We're pretty set up in our new place but have a ton of stuff to get done at the old place......Mike hasn't had any time off to work on it & it's too overwhelming for me to tackle it alone. We've got to get it done, we need to have the walls touched up, new mini blinds upstairs & the carpets cleaned before Dec. 5th & that's coming up fast.

With that coming up on us.....it also means that my trip is too......I"m leaving the morning of the 6th & can't wait to get there......so ready for a break!!
