We're a long way from summer despite the gorgeous weather! Our school ends on June 10. Paige is already in summer wardrobe mode. She hates socks and would go barefoot everywhere if I let her!
We have gymnastics and dance until about that time too.

I am sure after the long winter you had this year they are so glad it's spring! That's only about a week and half longer than Texas schools...our latest day out locally has been June 1...it's usually just a couple of days before that. It has been getting pretty warm here already...nights have been cool still---but poor Gracie...every restaurant you go to freezes you to death! I have just started making her leave a sweater in the car...she gets so cold she can't eat. I know they don't want customers cold, but man....if it's so cold that I am complaining, I feel bad for everyone else!
We are waiting for the days when they can go swimming!! That water is stil CHIIIIILLLLLY!!!

Hi Shawna, just saw that you are south east Texas and that is such a nice area. My BFF lives in Orange and wondered if you were anywhere close? Have a great day!!

Mini update

Nothing big - but I did call Disney today! I wanted to add Magical Express for our arrival. Had to be on hold for a few minutes - which I really didn't mind! They play Disney music! Got to hear a song from Monsters Inc!
So I managed to do add ME and while I was on the line I made them update the girls' ages since they've had their birthdays since we made the reservations.

I asked a bit about upgrading the DDP to DxDP. She said she could do it today, but I declined. I might wait until after I pay the package. I hear that normally if you make changes after the 45 day mark they will charge you, but if you're adding/upgrading, they usually don't. We'll wait and see. If I recall, I did the math and it would add about $250 to our total.

She also said that we could add a rental car through them - they use Alamo on site and we were planning to use Alamo - but I'm not sure if I can score a discount or something, so I'm going to wait on that.
After she wished me a magical day, I hung up smiling and told my office mates - I just love talking to Disney - they wish me a magical day!! They just shook their heads. Clearly not Disneyaholics.

Came home early and went to meet DH to go to Lowes. We are remodeling our downstairs bathroom. We had our neighbor/handyman do the tile floor, we changed the counter/sink, painted, got new faucet and towel bar and needed a new light fixture and mirror. So we found a light fixture and bought that today. Didn't find a mirror yet, so we're going to do without for a bit until I find one I like.
Because we have a Disney Visa - I saved $10 at Lowes! If I spent over $50 and used my Visa - I got $10 off!! They had sent coupons a while ago. The other was if you spent $250 you saved $75 I think. I also just got some coupons for NY &Co. If you spend $75 you save $30!!! I should go there - it's a good deal!


I also did some "gardening" today! We are getting our hot tub next week, and I had to move some Hostas to prepare the site. So I dug them up (with a little help from DH) and divided them and replanted them up on our hill. DH dug the holes for me. My legs are tired! Then DH took the railing off the deck and leveled the spot a bit.
Got the kids to bed and kicking back watching Idol. They went like 25 minutes long!!!
I'm working from home tomorrow, and hoping to get some stuff done at home. Going to clean up the clutter, go through some kids' clothes, mark garage sale stuff and bake some bars/cookies. (Luckily, I don't have much work stuff to do! just check email and voicemail mostly!) I'm going on a girls' getaway weekend up to Duluth Friday afternoon and bringing some treats along. The rest will go to my parents' church as they are providing lunch on Sunday. Then the girls have dance pictures tomorrow night and Sarah has softball practice too.
So that's my news for today. I am pooped. Probably will be tomorrow too!!

I agree, Disney calls are cheerful calls!

You had a very productive day, I don't blame you for being tired!
My day with 2nd grade leaves me drained.
Summer can't get here soon enough!

Having recently had a second grader I can feel your pain. It must be that much worse with 25 or 30 of them!!!
I hope I'll have another productive day tomorrow. I've been wasting time tonight looking at VB Hipsters and mini hipsters on ebay! Thanks to all the VB talk on your thread! I am leaning toward the hipster since I have a small bag that I can bring. The hipster seems to be a good size for me.

Hi Shelly!!!
Glad you made it!!! Don't worry you didn't miss much. I won't be doing much posting this weekend as I'm leaving in about an hour and a half for my girls' getaway. Won't have my computer, just my iPhone, and it's hard to post from there.
Those dang jobs - don't you hate how they interfere with DISing??

Love the plans Sheree!!!

Did you try calling Delta about the change in your flights?? When I called Sun Country about our changes they gave us vouchers because I caught the change before they could notify me!! Now we have $400 to put toward another flight! We are thinking MAYBE end of January/beginning of February again! The vouchers are good until February 11th!

How was your girls getaway weekend?? We LOVE Duluth! Where did y'all stay?? What did you do?? Did you get ice cream from the cold Stone?? Hope you had a great time!!!

Hi Kim!!! My weekend was great - I'll do a mini update about it! I have not called Delta. I think I'll do that tomorrow and give them some grief and see what happens. It is an okay change, but still have not heard from them via email. I hope you can use them for another Disney trip!!!
