Thank you SO much, Brook! I'm excited, nervous, having Mommy guilt, but just really looking forward to the change, too.

Do you have to join the local, state and National Boards? And buy the electronic key? I always felt so bad for people just starting out because it's a LOT of money to start with all the dues, the keys, the lockboxes - plus fees your office may charge to start up. Ugh.

The overhead doesn't seem too bad, compared to many offices, I picked up my packet today from the office and it's not too bad, it's done quarterly so it will be less painful. We can use the offices signs (Just need our name plates), they pay for my 1st HUGE box of cards, no desk fees, it's pretty good.

I do recall our local Board dues being a bit more expensive though because we included all Continuing Education classes in the cost - we were the only Board in the State to do that!

I kinda miss my job there. While I never did the actual real estate part of it, just being around all that and learning in all the Continuing Ed classes I had to oversee, was so much fun-SUCH an interesting field!!!

I'm excited about it, so much to learn, it's fun!!

And how nice that you have a bit of a head-start and overseer with your Mom being a pro in the business!!
I know, so lucky!!:yay:

Oh-and I have to throw in a real estate lingo here....I hope you can hog your first listing!!
(I know some offices even have a squeaky pig they squeeze when they are able to hog!!! Kinda funny, but that extra commission is always a good thing!!)

LOL! Thanks Brook!! I appreciate that!! Let's hope it comes quick...but I'll be patient, since good things come to those who wait!!!

Back to Disney World....
We loved our meal at The Wave too! It was just excellent. We loved the calm atmosphere in there, relaxing, good food, good service!

It was so great, wasn't it? I'd defintately go back, it was one of my favs that week!!

Sounds like an awesome way to wrap up day one at MK. A very fun, but exhausting night! I hope your Mom's feet get better, but I'm thinking not by the title of your TR!!!!
stay tuned!!
Hope you're well!!

I don't know how I've missed your trip report, but I'm so happy that I found it. It sounds like your trip is off to a great start.

I love the pics of you and your family. You all look so much alike! I've never looked like anyone in my family, so I've pretty much had the opposite problem. No one thinks I actually belonged with my parents.

Yay! Glad you found me!!!!! I hope you're well!! You're so funny about no one thingks you belonged to your parents...I'm sure that's not entirely true!! My boys are like that....they are all so different...there is no denying that they are ours, but the combo of us in them is so different from each other. You never know what you're going to get!!

How funny is that?! And wow your Mom is from Manomet!!! It's a great town...love it here!! We're so lucky to live in such a wonderful area!!!

Thanks for coming for the ride!!
She lives near Long Pond, I'm not sure if that is West Plymouth or not. Her boys are 9, 7 and 4, so maybe you have seen them around! I will PM you her name.

The Wave looks great! There are so many restaurants in WDW that I would like to try, I swear you could go for a month and never try them all! I hope your mom's feet get better, though from the sounds of your title they don't!

Hi Denise!
Our dinner at The Wave was sooo good! I would highly recommend it, if you haven't been! We did cover some serious ground in a little bit of time at MK, it was nice just to be there, you know?

There is a good chance that I could know your friend! Long pond is the next exit down...small world, huh?

You're so right about all the places to eat at WDW....you could try a new place at least every day for a month and still not run out of options!! Although I'm guilty of sticking to a few favs..but this trip we did a good job trying some new ones!

Day 2: Epcot

Our alarm goes off at 6 a.m., I jump up and grab a quick shower while Mom & Jodi slowly wake up. I was so excited, we were off to Epcot, it was our 1st full day in one of the parks!!

We have a quick breakfast in the room, while Mom was getting ready, Jodi and I took a quick spin up to Everything Pop and grabbed some coffee to go along with the bagels and peanut butter Jodi brought for us to have.

We head to the bus stop and it arrives right away, we didn't wait for more than 5 minutes. We got to the park by 9:15 and I was on a mission! I was heading to Soarin' to grab FP and Mom and Jodi were grabbing a wheelchair for Mom. We would each other on the way back and meet up. We had talked Mom into renting a wheelchair for the day (hence my title....), not only did she have a SERIOUS blister on the bottom of her foot, it was soo bad, her ankle was bothering her already and we didn't want her to get hurt any further by walking on it. Thankfully, she agreed and it made all of our lives SO much easier. So, I take off for Soarin', this would be Mom and Jodi's 1st time experiencing this and I was so excited to share it with them, loong story short, by the time I got there, they were coming up the hill! I got myself turned around and somehow wrong the way!!! oops! BUT the good news was there was only a 10 minute wait! So we cruised on inside and if we waited 10 minutes, that was long, I think it was more like 5! We got seats in the middle row and had our 1st ride at Epcot, it was so MAGICAL! I remember looking over at Mom and Jodi's faces during it and it made me SO happy!!! They loved it just like I knew they would!!! On the way out, we grabbed some FP's for later, we got 10:15-11:15 so we would sneak in another ride for a bit later.

From Soarin' we headed our way over to Test Track! None of us had been on this before and I couldn't wait! Here are some pics on the way through....we literally walked right on through.....


Mom and Jodi outside (note, they are wearing the tshirts I bought them as a surprise for the trip!)















Jodi and I waiting to ride!!



Whoa! What a RIDE!! Loved it....we all had a great time!!!

Since we were close, we made our way over to Mission Space to check things out over there. I hadn't been on it since my honeymoon and didn't have very fond memories of it, those motion type of rides don't usually agree with me too much, but Mom & Jodi said to just give it a whirl, so I did. Here are a few pics on the way in...








Right before we were going in for our mission, I almost bagged the "calm" ride but the lady going on with the three of us, assured me I'd be fine, I'm glad i too her advice, I was fine! Thankfully!! It was fun, not sure I'd rush to do it again the next trip but glad we did....

continued on next post....

LOVE Soarin'!! It was my favorite ride! You are brave to ride Mission Space. We waited on Brent to ride it when we went in May--he did the intense version. I'm afraid I'd feel too claustrophobic.

Wow, great EPCOT morning. I don't think I've ever done the big three rides back to back like that. What a way to start the day!

Based on the title. I knew that the wheelchair was coming. Sorry to hear about her problems, but it looks like she's still having a wonderful time.

Bravo to you for trying Mission Space. I don't think I will ever get on that one.

I'm so glad you were able to convince your mom to rent a wheelchair. It's not fun at all being miserable in Disney.
