Monday Monday.....why do you come so quickly? lol Or why am I so busy? LOL what a fun weekend! Fun but also a bit of frustration.........Friday night was the black light party at the bar, that was so much fun!! We had tons of people dressed in glowing colors and we had stencils and markers that glowed so we were writing on each other all night. lol We even had glowing cupcakes that my friend made! So fun!! Saturday I slept until 12:30......LOL I was clearly tired. rofl! That day was the bachelorette party do-over so we headed to Kati's at about 4, then off to the Melting Pot for the do over meal. This time it was amazing!! It was everything we expected it to be last time but it was not. We had a great time!! We did have free meals for all of us but we also had drinks and we upgraded our cooking sauces so we did have a balance to pay, here's where the frustration comes in, I ended up paying and extra $10, not that $10 is that much but I also drove the minivan, which gets 17 mpg and it was a 100 mile round trip and we had to pay bridge toll.......I was given $9 for bridge toll and gas.....so not only did I pay an extra $10 but I also got shafted on the gas and tolls. Soooooo frustrating because this same thing happened the first time. AND on top of that we were all supposed to go out after, well the only ones that did go out were myself and Amy, and Amy gave me $5 for gas and tolls. She could tell I was annoyed by this whole thing and she and I spend a lot of time together and we are always careful to share gas costs, or I buy her food or drink or something. So since this had happened before she told me she was going to give me $10 for gas and toll and I said no, that wasn't fair to her and if she did I would be mad at her. LOL So I can't decide exactly what to do, I feel like I got screwed out of $20!! I wasn't going to drive the van in the beginning but everyone was whining about not being together so I offered, I should have told them all to give me $3 for gas in the beginning and now I know I'll need to do that but man......so annoying to feel screwed over by people who are supposed to some of my best friends....I guess my main complaint is just that this continues to happen when I drive anywhere with that one group. This is the same group that left dinner early on my birthday to go get fro yo, then left the bar early on my birthday to go get food, and they expected me to leave early because again, they had ridden with me! (Micah drove because I was drinking) Amy isn't in that group but she was with me on these occasions so she knows my frustrations. I guess I'm just too nice but man......grrrrr Either way, dinner itself was AMAZING!!! And dancing after was fun as well. Then yesterday I went shopping for the rest of my costume stuff, got the tulle I need for my Mardi Gras skirt, now I need to make it, need to make my jewelry and need to get stuff to make a wand, maybe some lights for the skirt and gloves. Who knew how hard it would be find blue gloves? lol I did see some cute black ones with purple ribbon in them, I could change the ribbon but I'm not sure I want black gloves so I didn't get them yet. Then last night I had a lesson so was at the bar until about 11. Another busy but fun weekend. I have class tonight (Good Time) too, should be fun. UC is back in so there are a lot of new faces so I'll be teaching a lot of beginner dances for a while.

Thanks for letting me whine about my rude friends.....haha

Beth, so glad you had a nice trip! How nice of the girls to treat you to all those things! I'd love to stay at a Disneyland hotel, just once! Sorry about your foot and the heat though.

Jen, good luck on the baby stuff!

Mel, I forgot to mention I will take a hoodie! The zippered front one.

Thank you ladies for your words of encouragement. I do have an interview with Macy's next week. It will most likely be seasonal but I hope I get hired on and get a lot of hours.
I know your pain on the depression thing with no work. I had my hours cut again so have way too much free time. Cleaning the house does not excite me although that seems to be all I do. I suffur from zero motivation a lot of days. Luckily I am still working some, but cannot get an interview elsewhere, even with the follow through and all. Not looking for a 50 year old used veterinarian, I fear.

Here to good luck for all of us!!!

It could be worse, the kid gets a visit to her orthodontist on Monday morning before we turn around and come back.
I am just 98 miles from DL and don't get there often enough. A visit to your storage shed sounds exciting. For a brief time with a month long return to living with my parents while I was between jobs, I had my stuff in storage. I would actually go visit it. Okay, I would need to get something, but then find myself hanging out for a bit in my favorite chair surrounded by my stuff.

How exciting, a new house. I would like to move, but to a house, new city, new state.

99 degrees? Holy Moly that is not compatible with life. Glad I screwed around and missed the sign up date. Would not have enjoyed MA much in that heat. I always "compete" with my daughter, so we are far from competitive. Okay, I blame her, but maybe it is me.

Super de duper hot in San Diego. Other when I was swimming laps today, have been feeling like I am in an oven.

Over the weekend bought the fabrics to make costumes for my DD12 and the Irish Wolfhound. I need to get started because 1) While I bought a pattern for a basic dog coat, I need to franken-pattern it since while it is for XL dogs, not nearly as XL as my Gryff is. And I need to come up with a way to wings for it since he is being a dragon.

2). What was I thinking when I agreed to make the medieval thing for the kid? Obviously I did not look at the pattern too carefully since I need to put a zipper in costume satin and the sleeves have 9 button holes in each one!! I have done zippers before, but NOT button holes. Oh Noeesssssssssssss!!!!

Mild panic, but procrastination will likely win out and I will be not sleeping the entire week before Halloween as I stay up cursing and sewing. Gosh dang button holes.

Happy Monday.

This weekend my parents came to visit. Since I live right on the edge of WDW, and DH works there, we took them to the parks. They haven't been in about 12 years... It was so frustrating. They just don't get it. They seemed bored the whole time. I'd notice they weren't looking at anything when we were on Main Street, so I tried to get them to appreciate the Halloween/fall decorations for a minute. They were so unenthusiastic and just wanted to leave. I made sure we got there when it was getting dark so it wasn't hot. We stayed only a couple hours...

Today I had an interview at Casting to work at the Grand Floridian Spa when it reopens (I am a massage therapist and esthetician). Keep your fingers crossed for me! Afterward, I had lunch at Food & Wine and got a shirt for Epcot's 30th birthday :-) I would have liked to go to the rededication, but I had the old people with me, lol. We went for only a short time. It was hot... Can't wait for it to cool off here

Trudi yeah normally I think you could just show up but because of the special Disney exhibit they recommend getting tickets in advance. You can look up their website and it has all the details.
I'll check the site. Thanks.

It really did! It sounds like you enjoyed the movie; I am hoping to see it soon.

Hello SarahMay! You really have to try to make it back this next trip And I wish I could make it up to Washington for sleepovers and rain...

For those of you with Kindle's, my friend Megan wrote a book and it was released today. It is called "Traced" and is the first in a series. It's only $2.99. She has been saying it is similar to Hunger Games/Harry Potter. Megan became a photographer after she lost her dad to cancer and has been so successful with that - hopefully her writing takes off just as swimmingly. So, if you are looking for a new book to read, check it out I just started it today myself.

That sucks they were in such a hurry to leave and not able to see all the beauty in it all. I wish someone would take me.lol
Good luck with your interview. I would so love a fabulous massage.

Why isn't it Friday yet?? This seems like it's going to be a long week. That's the one thing about vacations...playing catch up with reality when you get home!

Anyway, Happy Tuesday, y'all!

Thanks. I'm debating on going to the doctor or not. I'm not sure there's much they can do for me from what I'm reading online...

It was nice of them! They are so sweet. And Theresa, who sadly ended up having to leave Saturday morning instead of Sunday morning, told me to just stay in the hotel the last night and invite my family, who'd been staying with Ruben's parents, to come sleep over and swim in the pool. So it was an extra special treat for them as well.

Make it stop already. I am so tired of heat, heat and more heat. I was hoping to escape the Vegas heat in CA this past weekend, but instead, it was just as bad there.

I feel your pain. My mom has zero interest in theme parks, especially Disney. She thinks they are crowded, and expensive. Which, okay, maybe they are, lol. But still. She just is not interested in the least.

Good luck at the interview!!

Can't wait!

"All inclusive benefits" can be very helpful when dreaming up ideas.

Hi everyone....I'm on FB all the time, but I've had inconsistent ability to get on to the DIS. Can't wait to meet up with some of the newbies and see some of the veterans!

Hi Michelle!!!

Beth~ I feel you on this week appearing to be a long one. I work till 5 tonight and will not make it to my crossfit class Friday brings my Fort Bragg family trip and that low-60-degree weather is taunting me.

So I completed the Tough Mudder and the next big thing is the Spartan Race in April. I am joining my trainer to do it. It is 11-13 miles and you cannot skip obstacles. It should be fun!
