Quick question: Do you wear sunglasses in the park? Yes, no, or waiting on the weather to decide? I hate squinting (and I do a lot if there's any sun) but I also don't want to constantly be messing with them as we go in/out doors and on rides. If I decide to wear some, I need to go buy a new pair

Have you tried moleskin? I find it generally stays in place better than bandaids. One side has a backing that gets peeled off to reveal the sticky part that attaches to your skin. And you can cut it to the size & shape needed.

Wearing sunglasses depends on my mood & the weather. At home I wear them all the time. On vacation they sometimes get in my way looking through the viewfinder of my camera. And in the summer at WDW it is hot and humid and they feel icky. Plus I don't want to end up with raccoon eyes if I'm outside for a long stretch of time When I do wear them, I just flip them on top of my head or into a side pocket of my bag when we go inside a ride/attraction

I cant believe now you have both TBA narrators!! That is crazy. Although I guess it is double the chance to get your guy.
haha yeah, I give up. It will be whoever it will be (but secretly have my fingers crossed that this somehow increases the chances of Olmos)

I bought some moleskin foam a few months back and I found it to be almost too thick. Is all moleskin foam or did I just buy a special kind? I will definitely try it though, as the spot of concern now might be a spot that the foam would work better on than the last time I tried.

I'm all about the baseball caps. Not only does it block the Sun, but it is good for the rain and it can't break (more importantly, it covers up when I have a bad/bed hair day ). Though, in Dec, you will occassionally see me in a Santa hat.

BDLsgal wears perscription glasses , though. And she keeps a hard case to store them in when we are on rides.

Mine is not foam, more like a bandage (the thickness is more than a bandaid but less than an ace bandage). What we use is a roll of it that we cut to fit the size we need. Similar to this:

Oh man.... I need some of this. But I have a cat who "loves" moles....... she leaves one by our back door several times a year....... this might not end well!

Thanks for this discussion though. It reminded me to pick some up for our trip. I usually don't have much trouble, but my husband gets terrible blisters and will be happy to have some I think.

Great point! I will be rushing home after work and getting everything ready in front of me to make the call. Wondering if I should call to book the 3 days at WL and then have them cancel POFQ at the same time or if I should book online for the 3 nights and call to cancel POFQ. Will they just refund my depost for POFQ or will they just apply it to WL if I call? Sorry for all the questions!

If both are a package or both a room only, they should apply it to WL. If you are switching between package and room only, they will refund it.

Did you have free dining or anything?

I am under room only. I wanted free dining but I am going a week to early or late depending on how you look at it.

I didn't have the help of a counselor. I was talking with my nursing advisor about why I was considering changing, and she recommended that I go to a local hospital and shadow an ICU nurse (pretty close to what I wanted to do with nursing). After I shadowed, it just solidified my realization that I didn't want to be in nursing.

The next step was to decide what I wanted to do. I spent a while thinking about it, and talking to advisors in different departments. My last two were sports management (I love planning and logistics, and I'm obsessed with sports) and education (I've worked as a high school youth group advisor for the last three years and loved it). After meeting with sports management again, I realized that it wasn't for me -- the program is 80% web-based (which isn't a good fit for me), and it's very hard to get a job.

I'm very excited about education. It's a big passion of mine. I like knowing that I'm giving back, and helping to shape lives in a way that not many people get to do.
