Not to mention, I know Connor will want some stuff to build sandcastles.
OH I hate State TESTING!!!!

But YAY for Target and stuff! They do have all their flip flops out! All colors along the display very festive and summery!!!

All caught up ADR for Narcoosee’s sounds really good We have kept this on the radar but have not been yet. What lovely gifts your DH bought you have some really good ideas for going along with them Goodie bags are coming along nicely together with your beach bag. Feeling hungry now that I have read your yummy receipe.

Me too on the state testing. Since I don't have a homeroom, I get to be Seventh Grade Test Administrator which means I count in all the tests and manage any problems that arise on the seventh grade hallway. Lucky me. I will need a trip to Target to celebrate when this week is over.

You think the higher-ups will ever get wise and figure out the testing means pretty much nothing in the whole scheme of things???

Really Distracted with stuff! But some NEW news!

Okay, I will skip the details, but I do have an announcement that is crazy!

I have just discovered that I am invited to attend a training session in New Orleans June 15th - 20th. This is exciting to me, for professional reasons, however for personal reasons, VACATION, reasons, it has posed a problem... Now I am not NOT going. It is a huge opportunity. However, we are scheduled to check into BLT on the 20th, indeed are DRIVING from MD on the 19th... which means one DH and two DS's will be driving down without their DM (is that "Disney Mom" -- well, it is now!! ) OR possibly taking the autotrain without me! That is still up in the air, AND so is my arrival in WDW! So now I might be able to get out of the am training on the 20th, and leave at the crack of dawn to MCO, OR, I will come in mid morning on the 20th. OR if I can get out of the bit on the 20th, then I will fly home to MD, and drive back with the crew... OR I will leave from New Orleans on the evening of the 19th if there is time and stay at a cheap resort that night WAITING for my guys to get here on the 20th!! So many up in the airs! Well, what I do know is that our plan for lunch at Yak and Yeti is likely going to be tabled. Well MOVED to another point in the trip if I can make another ADR!!

We'll have to see how it all unfolds!

Oh! AND 55 days until DISNEY.

THANKS!!! It is really a cool opportunity -- opens lots of doors, so I am really excited, but I wish it ended ONE day earlier!!! It might "end" in time for me to make the connection, but I have to wait to get the official documents this week sometime, Then I will know. I don't like DH driving all by himself, but he is toying with the autotrain one way down. We'll see!

How fun! New Orleans is such a great place! Do you know where you will be staying yet? What a conundrum on the trip planning front, though! Like Anita said, I know you will figure it all out. How does DH feel about driving down with the boys all by himself?

I hear ya about the pool opening on Memorial Day and the bathing suit! Ours opens then, too, but I haven't even thought about squeezing myself into a bathing suit yet.

Great news on the opportunity. I'm sure it'll all fall into place.
Is there any way to push your vacation back a day?
