Take care of yourself lady! Take some preventative meds, and get to bed earlier if you can. I don'tk now about you, bu when I get sick, it lingers in some form for weeks and takes a while to kick it completely.

And you only got 20 says until you're at WDW!

Oh my goodness, it's almost here. I am so excited for you. Start getting some meds in you, NOW! I'm sorry about the costume issues. That stinks. I can't wait to start reading your trip report.

Thanks for the well wishes! I was able to get some rest this weekend so I'm feeling much better! I think the new shift was just kicking my butt that first week! I started week 2 today - the alarm went off (for the first time) at 5:30am (), then I actually crawled outta bed at 6:15am. And don't you know, we STILL left the house late. Clearly, this issue with punctuality is something that haunts me everywhere I go.... Wait, let me backtrack....I got up at 6:15am and was outta the shower and dressed by 6:30am, at which point I woke up Lumar. Could he get outta bed and feed 8 rabbits? 3 birds? empty the dishwasher? make coffee? No. He slept until 6:30. Then he rolled outta bed at 6:35, and didn't emerge from the bathroom until 7:05am. Soo...lets jump back to us leaving late. Anyone care to venture a guess as to the CAUSE of leaving late? Anyone? Anyone?

And since he is clearly too busy to grace us with his presence here on the DIS, I can talk all the trash I want!


Any my costume is still not available, for those of you playing along at home. It's October 5. We leave in 17 days. Lumar's costume was shipped on Saturday so it should be here within a couple of days.


At some point before we leave I need to call maintenance to come fix some things here at the apartment....there is a giant crack in the wall in the shower, the bathroom closet door has magically become dislodged from the track (you know how things are in perfect working order one day, then suddenly it's broken and mysteriously there was no one home when it happened?), the bathtub is seemingly permanently clogged (3 bottles of Foaming Pipe Snake later), and the refrigerator is leaving puddles on the floor in the kitchen.

In other news, my momma bought us tickets to see Mary Poppins on Broadway on November 7! Still trying to go see The Lion King but tickets are so expensive! We got the Mary Poppins tickets for $40 for mid-mezzanine...they're usually like $80 I think, so we got a pretty good deal. No specials for TLK though....not even with the Disney Rewards Visa. Well, one thing at a time, I suppose.

Oh yeah, did I mention we're leaving in 17 days!

Glad to hear you're feeling better.

And your getting very close!

Would that costume just become available already?!!!!! do you have alternate plans or have I just forgotten?

No...no alternate plans at this time. I can buy it from an ebay store if worse comes to worse, but they will charge me more and I won't be able to use the coupon I got from buycostumes.com so i'll stick it out until the weekend and then go from there

are you being sarcastic? LOL seriously i knew i should have ordered it weeks ago but I tried to wait because i would get a bigger discount if i ordered both at the same time...that's what i get for being cheap, I suppose.


BTW - woke up this morning with a wicked sore throat. Took some medicine...not helping. I'm buying like 6 bottles of orange juice to drink today...usually that helps for some reason....


Oh and my cell phone officially died yesterday. I called to do a factory rest on Monday because the internet feature stopped working. at 5:30am yesterday morning when the alarm was supposed to go off, all that happened instead was the phone flashing on and off and that's all it did for the rest of the day. None of the buttons worked, and the only way to turn it off was take the battery out. So I called and told them and the guy sounded like he was giving me the news that my puppy died or something. He told me that my warranty expired in February and since I didn't purchase insurance, my only other option would be to upgrade the phone and sign another 1 year contract. One year is not so bad and the phone I' getting costs $400 and I'm getting it for free. They're having it over-nighted so I should get it some time today.

Heading to work now....

Hope that you get to feeling better! Take some Airborn, that stuff works wonders! Here's some pixie dust to help you get well... and to hopefully get your costume in time!

Well...... Lumar's costume came yesterday..... and it's absolutely enormous.


I'll be returning it tomorrow. In the meantime, I have place a new order for a size smaller. Personally, I hate the way it looks and I don't think a size smaller is going to make it any better. But he wants to try it one more time so that's what we'll do.

I also ordered my costume last night... Based on the reviews, a lot of women have complained that the top part is too big and needed alterations... But if I get it one size smaller, it will be too small for me.

I like the idea of dressing up for Halloween, especially at the Magic Kingdom....but this is getting ridiculous. Now I know why almost everyone in 2007 was dressed as a pirate....it's just so EASY!

In other news, my sore throat has gone away but I'm now very congested and running a slight fever. I'm no worse than yesterday, but no better either. I could be worse, but right now I wish Lumar would just get sick and get it over with, otherwise I know he will be sick on our trip

C'mon Lumar, hurry up and get sick!! You have only 11 days to get it and get over it.

Don't worry about the costumes. Everything will turn out fine. You will be in DISNEY WORLD and nothing else will matter.

Take care of yourself!!

OK so my costume came yesterday but I didn't get a chance to try it on yet. I'm going to do that tonight...hopefully it will fit OK. Still waiting for Lumar's replacement to come in....

Thanks to everyone for your well wishes! I am feeling MUCH better - just still congested and sneezing but that should clear up within a few days. Lumar on the other hand has not gotten sick yet so I am worried. Maybe we will get lucky and he either wont get sick at all, or at least will not get sick until we come back. Here's hoping.


I can't believe we're leaving next week!

It's great to hear you're feeling better! Maybe the bug will just pass Lumar over complete, and there won't be anything to worry about.

Get that costume tried on, girl! We wanna hear the verdict on it!

Update! 10/13

So, as previously stated, I got my costume in the mail yesterday. I tried it on tonight (complete with the omega boots) and I have to say that although I know what those other chicks meant when they said some alterations may be required....it could be a heck of a lot worse. Overall, it's not that bad! I definitely need to find a way to take in the top part just a little bit, but other than that, my costume is good to go! This may be TMI for some, but basically it looks like it's made for women with a curvy middle and a smaller chest. It's like...puffy in the middle area. I don't know how else to describe it. But, like I said, overall it's not bad!

Still waiting for Lumar's costume to come in the mail.....

I finalized our transportation plans today... my mom is going to meet us at our house, follow us to my dad's house (so that I can leave my car with him while we're gone so hopefully he can fix my brake light and my radio which ceased to work about 2 weeks ago), and then drive us to the airport in her car from there. When we come back, my dad will pick us up from the airport and bring us back to his house, where the car will be waiting for us so that we can go home whenever we feel like it.

I have been scouring the information on the F & W Festival and I have created this list of things to do/eat/drink:

On 10/24, we have a dinner reservation at Tutto Italia for 6:15pm
On 10/28, we have a dinner reservation at San Angel inn for 6:30pm

I'm starting to wonder if we will make it to EITHER reservation based on the following information I've obtained on the additional pavilions:

Buenos Aires, Argentina – Empanadas
(FREAKIN' YUM)

The Mouse Catch – Cheese!
(Who doesn't love cheese, seriously?)

Mexico City, Mexico – Tacos, quesadillas, and Mexican Sunrise
(I don't know what a Mexican Sunrise is but I'll drink it!)

Krakow, Poland – Kielbasa & Potato Pierogies
(Never had one but I have a minor obsession with potatoes so I'm game)

Capetown Café – Seared Beef Tenderloin w/ Sweet Potato Puree and Mango BBQ Sauce
(Um....Mango BBQ Sauce? Why, yes, I think I will!)

Munich, Germany – Spaetzle Gratin w/ Ham & Cheese, Apple Strudel w/ Vanilla Sauce
(never had spaetzle before but all I really needed to hear was "ham & cheese" and I'm in! And HELLO apple strudel!)

Bologna, Italy – Pizza, Cannelloni, and Primavera
(My family is from near here and I haven't had Cannelloni in AGES...and yeah... Primavera....strawberry, banana, peach slush. I'll take two...)

Vienna, Austria – Paprika Beef Stew w/ Bacon Dumplings
(Bacon...in a dumpling...HELLO!)

Paris, France – Crème Brulee au Chocolat au Lait
(I don't need to even comment here...Chocolate Milk Creme Brulee with caramelized sugar...This is a no brainer! )

San Juan, Puerto Rico – Ham Croquettes, Arroz con Pollo (Chicken with Rice), Ponatela Masa Real (Guava Cookie), Bacardi Frozen Dragon Berry Colada, Bacardi Frozen Mojito
(Yes to everything! According to Lumar - my resident 'Rican - Guava Cookies are amazing. Did I mention that Bacardi is my favorite alcohol? )

Oh and Boys II Men will be playing for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series on 10/28! How cool is that?! I always wanted to check out one of these concerts but every time we go and there is some concert series going on, it's always someone I've never heard of or don't care for. I'm kinda psyched about this!

Soooo..... Maybe I'm going out on a limb here, but I think I need to hit the gym pretty hard over the next few days.

OK I seriously need to make a shopping list now. We haven't gone grocery shopping in over a month and tomorrow is Taco night so I need to get to the store after work tomorrow night! TTFN!
