Thank you!

I do agree shirts would be fun I wonder if I could get ds to wear one that says "son of NDM#25" after all it is my job in life to embarass him until he is married and has his own kids to embarass.

Ok...I'm here. Jumped over from EarstoEars. I am the one who just emailed you a bit ago. Enjoying the report!

Had to edit b/c it looks like our next trips (if I am able to make it) coincide.

I would like to be a Neurotic Disney Auntie! I most certainly am one of them. I have only my cats to brainwash. DBF is kind of like your husband. I may have convinced him to take his brother and my niece in June.

Sounds like you had a good time, even though there were a few roadblocks along the way. But all the while you enjoyed yourselves. It's always nice reading TR's.. Thanks for sharing.

Your wish is definitely granted, especially because I believe that aunties are absolutely adorable when they own cats. My favorite auntie surrounds herself with cats.

Megan The Adorable, by the power and authority vested in me, I hereby pronounce you to be NDA#1. You shall henceforth bear the esteemed and loveable title of Neurtoic Disney Auntie. Being the VERY FIRST NDA, you hold the solemn responsibility of setting the example for all other NDAs who will follow in your footsteps. Go forth into the World, indoctrinating all of your nieces and nephews into Disney culture, teaching the The Sacred Seven and exemplifying the principles of a Disney-driven life. This, in turn, should catapult you to the forefront of all favored aunties and bring you blessing. Congratulations!

We now have 38 NDMs, 3 NDDs (dads), 1 NDGM (grand mom), 3 NDWs (wives), 1 NDH (husband), 1 NDU (uncle), 1 NDA (auntie), and 1 NDI (individual). Whew! Still working on the website guys.

Woohoo! Now if only I could put in the request for a quote on the dreams site. I will suffer through the June heat since my cousin won't let me take my niece out of school. What kind of parenting is that?

Currently my ressies are from May 27 - June 3 and I think, from looking at your ticker, I would be there at the same time as you guys. The only problem is, I may end up having to cancel to due finances. My mom would be the one to go with me and she got laid off Dec 31...so it depends on if she can get a job and also, if I can scrounge up the money myself, as I am still paying on some surgery I had this past summer. I booked it because it was the buy 4 days, get 3 free deal. I'll know by April (when payment is due) if we can make it. If we do, we'll be at POFQ and I would love to meet up. Will keep ya informed!

NDM #33 checking in...

Today I worked on my OneNote work of art. So far the categories are:

Itinerary, Food/drinks/snacks, resort info., transportation info., packing lists, misc. fun stuff to consider doing/buying, and PTR chapter titles. (Yes, I've even dutifully planned out HOW to write my PTR!!)

Am I missing something that a true NDM would have included?? I"m sure I'll think of more, and that my fellow NDMs, As, Hs, Us, Ws, and everyone else who is as utterly neurotic as me will guide me along the way. After all, I do have 20 months of time to "pull it all together" yet.

I think the friend who is hoping to go with me is already figuring out that she's hooked up with some kook, who can't call enough with the latest tidbit of trivia, or to expound upon the wisdom and virtue of planning early- like 2 years early! SHe had no idea that the room we want could actually be booked that far out!

Please send us more fodder to help us appreciate our decidedly NDM lifestyle as quickly as possible!

Your fellow NDM #33

Disneyfan71,

It is obvious that you have a clear understanding of the NDH (neurotic Disney people) way. NDHs DO NOT "wing it". They carefully plan and strategize in order to be sure that they maximize every Disney minute, and then they STICK TO THE PLAN so that no stone is left unturned.

Disneyfan71, by the power and authority vested in me, it is my greatest pleasure to bestow upon you the position of NDH#2. You shall henceforth bear the esteemed and noble title of Neurotic Disney Husband. Go forth in the World, calculating every last second of your upcoming Disney trips so that every person in your party will be able to fully experience all that Mickey has to offer them.
