Oh, no! Are you sure it was an "accident" by Waldo???

The giddy excitement of my little boy riding his first “big ride”, the smile on the face of my little Princess as she posed with Cinderella in the castle, or when she conquered the SSR slide with her new friends, and finally meeting people I had only chatted with online and really connecting with them and becoming lifelong friends (I hope!), sitting around the large table at Spoodles with my family – enjoying the food, wine and atmosphere, – all dreams that were priceless to me! I could go on and on, seriously.
Making me teary, here, woman...

NOTHING slaps you back into the real world like rush hour traffic.

No Waldo, I had already told the lady what was my stuff and she just had Waldo fill out the resort shipping paper.

It was my honor and pleasure to re-live it all with you! Except for the stinky parts. That wasn't really so pleasureable. TFI.

You are so very welcome. I got all warm and fuzzy inside when I saw the table of Monchichis and thought of the look on your face when one showed up at your door.

Or maybe that was the saki???

Lovely time!

We were all hungry, so we stopped for some Chinese take-out. My phone rang and it was Rick asking where we were. I told him we were at the Chinese place. He flipped his lid. They were still stuck on the freeway! His FIL was driving and apparently got out of the carpool lane and into regular traffic! Hehe!
I loved the carpool lane. It's like a novelty for we New Yorkers. Of course, we don't have to deal with the California rush hour traffic! Thank goodness.

I unwrapped all the stuff and found 2 extra Minnie Mouse mugs, 2 extra Mickey & Walt mugs, 4 magnetic fridge notepads and an Mickey Mouse Ice cream scooper.
I got dibs on the ice cream scoop!!!

Over the next few days we unpacked and accepted our fate of returning to the real world with all it’s real problems. The pictures were developed, the stories retold here on the DISboards and the reminiscing began. So did the post Disney blues and along with that came the post Disney vomiting and diarrhea.
I think my post Disney blues are really getting harder now that I'm on my last day of my TR. Plus the fact that I just turned 42. Deep blues baby.

Who’s stuff is this and I sure hope I didn’t pay for it. I searched for the other “Envelope of Doom”- you know the one that shows all your room charges – and I see it – Mickey’s Pantry $168.16! Well that’s just craptastic.

When does the pre-trippie start?

Happy Halloween!
Just catching up. Alice Copper has always scared me.
Sad to see your TR end. It has been so much fun reading your TR.
I think it was great to be able to read your TR since I meant you on your trip.
I think Andy and you should have us all over for a trip to Disneyland!
