Lumar has one but to be honest, he bought it for the blu-ray player He hardly ever plays any games on it...I think the last game he played was Kingdom Hearts 2 but he said that metal gear sold 4, iron man, and gta 4 are all supposed to be pretty good...

hey everyone - sorry it has been a while since I posted an update... I am petsitting for my dad this whole week at his house and don't have access to any of my pictures or anything. I'll be back home on either Saturday or Sunday so I will have an update then!

Lumar and I are going through serious WDW withdrawal! It's terrible...I find myself just staring out into space and my mind takes me back to some random Disney place. I've noticed that my mind spends most of it's time in DTD and MK. And it's funny because I wake up some mornings and think to myself "today is a (insert name of Disney Park here) day." Like today was an Epcot day...I wanted to be at Epcot so bad today....even if I was just sitting in Morocco waiting for Lumar to get out of the bathroom....

And to make matters worse is that I don't think we are going back any time soon. We really need to move into our own place not just because we want to but it's just getting harder and harder to live with the whole fam dam. And I know that if we book another trip before we move out, my mom and step-dad are gonna complain that we should be using that money to move out instead. But once we move into our own place we REALLY won't be able to afford a trip... this stinks

I am in the same boat. I moved out without purchasing a place (I am renting), and now I feel that if I go to the DIS my parents would complain that I am wasting $$ that could go to my house....(poop). BUT...just think how cool it will be when you do go....So many new changes! I know....not good enough for me, but at least it is some positive...

I know, it was nice of me to stop by my own TR, huh? LOL

We HAVE the money to go...plus I could have gotten a sweet deal on airfare from travelocity....they were offering $150 ROUND TRIP from Hartford, CT to MCO!!! AND Lumar told me that a friend of his that works at the Disney Store in the mall, told him that as of May, the Disney Store is once again OWNED by Disney, which means employees will be able to get 50% off their stay at a Disney Resort....and they were hiring PT help for maybe 1 or 2 days a week for only a 4 hour shift each day so Lumar said he was thinking about taking it. Is it sad that he wants to take on a second job, not for the extra cash, but for the WDW discount??? I don't know if this is all true or not but this is what he was told... So if he were to get a job there even if only for a couple of months, we could have gotten a sweet deal on the resort too. But even without all of that, if I had booked an October trip like I wanted to, it would have been aboyt $2000 - with MNSSHP, park tix, 9 nights at either FQ or CSR, and the flight. So we totally HAVE the money to go, but I just don't feel like hearing my step-father complain.

i know the feeling -i was just thinking that same thing this morning that by the time we do get to go back there will be a lot of new stuff and it will be even more "magical" because we worked really hard to get there AND accomplished our goal of getting our own place...so the trip would be like our reward, you know? But it still doesn't make me feel any better. What's worse is that it's not even my mom that would complain, it's my step-dad and when he complains (which is extremely often about everything and anything) he makes my mom aggitated which makes her complain too. I tried convincing my dad and my step-mom to come with us on an October trip and then we could tell my mom and step-dad that we didn't pay for it...but then my brother and sister would complain that my dad was taking me and Lumar and not them.... so here I am...still trying to figure out a way to get there in October, but so that my mom doesn't know we paid for the trip. I was thinking about telling her we won a trip but that seems a little far fetched....

Wow you got it bad...........dreaming of WDW and waking up wishing that it is an Epcot day ............ahhhh wouldn't that be nice .........I would start off with the bakery at France............sample whatever looked good and try not to fling my pastries off the counter onto the floor like I did by accident when I was there last time My daughter and I were laughing so hard, luckily the next customer in line told the counter service what happened and they kindly replaced them.

Today is an AK day...

I've had a similar experience with ice cream...I took one lick and pushed the whole scoop off the cone onto the ground. I was at that little stand in the American Adventure pavilion I think and it was on like my first or 2nd trip. I swear, the look on my face must have been priceless because there was an older couple standing there and both of them were like "Oh it's ok we'll get you another one!" The CM's replaced it for free but I must have looked like I was gonna cry. That was so nice of those people to offer, though!

DBF says how lucky I am that we are going to WDW again. We went last May, and to DLR in May 2006 and this past February! All thanks to his job. (Well, they paid for him to go to conferences that were near/in the parks). I can't wait for this next trip. He even suggested that we extend for 3 more days past the conference!

I think I'm going to ask our local Disney Store about the employee discount. I'm in there often enough that I think at least one of them recognizes me.

Good luck!

thanks for reading! I'm glad you like my pics! My camera was the GREATEST purchase I ever made....I really should read that manual though...

We had a fantastic time! I swear, going with other people is fun because it's a great feeling to "share the magic" but there is nothing like experiencing it as "just the two of you."
