I am going to attempt to be a reformed ride Chicken on this trip. My accident has given a fresh perspective on life, and am now ready to at least try some wilder rides on this trip, that I've avoided in the past. However I'm still a photographer a heart, and will always love taking pics. And a closet graphic artist (I can now add that to my resume, as I created a logo for my DH's union, after what they came up with was really bad ). They are going to use one of my designs as their new logo, which is awesome!

Commandoing for free is the best way to Commando, or maybe you won those tickets because it's a trap, they want to find out all the Disney info you know about what's going on that week, and what better way then with free tickets

The best kind of Commando is when you do it for free!! I need the laugh, as the shoulders are really acting up today. The kids had a hip hop concert yesterday. The darn folding chairs that they provided for the parents watching it, killed my shoulders, the curve and neck (GRUMBLE!!). Sigh...one step forward, two steps back. Hate dealing with the insurance co, but at least I've got DS9 into physio as of next week, which he really needs. The upcoming trip is keeping me sane for the most part, but it get's frustrating with how much I can't do these days. At least the curve in my spine is starting to correct itself, which is something.

A Disney trip always does a body good (well, maybe it does the mind and spirit good so we can psych ourselves into believing the body is good as well). Feel better Belledozer I have a birthday, spring break and maybe even a job response next week I forgot to tell you guys. . . I got a car!!! I am super excited, in fact, it got me to the last minute job interview I had today. I will keep you all posted. I get to finally update my PTR too, it needs it.

Congrat's on the car!!!! Just be careful out there, and drive as if everyone's out to get you. It's worked well for me over the years, as I rarely have accidents with this mentality. I'm always anticipating what the other driver's around me are going to do. To keep my sanity intact I bought a knitting loom, and have started making scarves for our friends for Christmas to keep me out of mischief. And keep the frustration at bay for the most part. Good luck with the job interview!!

Congrats on your car

I was looking at The Flower & Garden Event, and I must say that when you are there something is going on that I got excited about, you may have overlooked it, but it is something your Mom might like more then you

May 10-12 Herman's Hermits with Peter Noone will be performing, They might be way before your time but you might know some of there songs such as Bus Stop, Mrs Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter, I'm Into Something Good, I'm Henry The VIII I Am, etc. This is one of those opportunities that you can do , that your Mom and yourself might enjoy and it's free

If nothing else you can actually say that you have seen one of the original British Invasion Bands perform

You should design a WDW Commando scarf, I know there are none of them out there

Thanks for the congrats guys Yes, I took my mom for a ride and we were at the light, the car coming to a stop behind me was going too fast so I moved forward a little. My mom laughed and said "I don't blame you hun, your gonna keep your car in tact." Exactly I believe the job interview went well. Good news is they must fill positions to keep up with the demand for their business. They don't have a lot of time to interview and they don't have a lot of applicants. This means I have a pretty good chance qualified or not (which I am, it is a call center) and over time availability and they are flexible while I go to school. Win-win all around

I will make sure we try, thanks for letting me know. I usually do know music before my time, but nope don't believe I know them. It does not look like we will spending too much time at Epcot do to my mom wanting to relax and other stuff I have us scheduled for. I know were not doing too much in FW though. Probably just Captain EO, Journey into Imagination w/ Figment (I heard it changed, don't know how I feel about this), Spaceship earth, maybe energy, Test track and Soarin'. Pretty much if we can get to Epcot both days for a couple hours one day we can do FW and the other day WS and just eat and listen to music.

I agree about the scarf. I crochet, so if you need ideas, let me know.

Fun has a label?

Who knew we were commandos...we were just trying to soak in everything Disney!

One of our Disney traveling philosophies:
Nap in the room? What? And miss all the FUN! This is a Joyner vacation, baby! NAP AT HOME!

And so, feeling we just might qualify for the label, I humbly request to be a member of this group of like-minded souls.

Good to hear about the job progress. Terrible to hear about changes to Figment. That is one of my must do rides. I even have a purple figment on my van radio antenna.

You are member #228 we tried the whole nap thing a few years ago, it was nothing but a waste of time never again, although I have found a few rides in the parks that make for great naps

I've napped in the movie in France a couple times, so that has to be my favorite place. Also,it never has been really crowded.

Introductions

This is me and DH:


We are approaching our 180-day mark for our 11th trip to Disney, beginning September 6, 2013. All 10 park days are itinerized by best crowd level. Park hopping is assigned by EMH. All dining is accounted for. Boardwalk view at Boardwalk Villas was locked in at the 11-month mark.

My all time favorite nap ride is Universe Of Energy, it's like a solid 20 minute nap, that's really all you need to recharge
