Deb-ask Chris if he is ready for some football trash talking?!

I had an exciting day on Saturday! My dad and I had tickets to go to an event in North Jersey where you got to meet 3 former Cowboys players. It was booked through a company that I use a few times a year to meet some current players...So we drove like 45 minutes to get there, saw some of our friends that we have met in the past years, and waited for the players. The players came in and they were awesome! Got pictures and autographs..then there was a raffle. They had 2 prizes, the first was memorabilia. My dad wouldnt let me see our numbers (he was just tormenting me). As they are announcing the grand prize, they were one number away and my dad said we were still in it..then he looked at me and was like thats us! So i jump up and down like a crazy person. We won 2 tickets to the opening day Cowboys/Jets game in NJ--and 2 tailgating tickets! I am SO excited! So I am making a weekend of it--Im going to stay at the team hotel the night before the game and do the autograph show with 2 of the players. Then the next day my dad will meet up with me and we'll do the tailgating and game! And the best part, its like 3 weeks away!

Chris is definitely ready for football trash talk. He was so excited over the Tampa vs New England game last week. He was shocked at how few people were in the stands.

Congrats on the tickets. It sounds like a great time


Tia. I'm finally feeling better. I think it took about a week and a half to fully leave my system. Not fun at all.


Another busy day at work today. We still have one girl out on maternity leave and the work load hasn't decreased any so it is busy busy. She had only planned to take off 4 weeks which would have had her coming back today, but she has had migranes everyday since the birth so now she's not sure when she'll be able to come back.

Not sure if I mentioned it yesterday, but my Grade increase was approved and takes effect next week. That extra money will certainly come in handy and now I can start looking for a permanent placement. Just over 8 months now until this position ends and I don't want to wait until the last minute only to be left out in the cold. I also applied for an NCL credit card to earn points toward upgrades and excursions. They sent me a copy of my credit score and I am shocked at how high it is Apparently they love people that have debt, but pay their bills on time

Thanks everyone. We had a great time. Port Orleans Riverside was great as well. We had THE BEST mousekeeping ever. I have always tipped every day in all resorts but this lady (I met her near the end of our stay) was awesome. She made us towel animals, gave us lots of extra supplies, & just did things in the room to keep it clean & magical. Loved it!!! We did use the pool a few times but after some kid threw up on Daniel (& the parents just stood there & watched) my kids had enough of the pool.

We did kick some serious butt at the pool trivia. Dana said he felt bad for the others playing because they did not know who they were up against! The kids won a prize for winning 2 rounds in a row.

We got to see Bob Jackson's show at the River Roost, he was fantastic. I do not know where he gets his energy.

The parks were busy but not as crazy as I have seen it.

The magic of the Disney CM's is still alive & well. One day we had a photopass photographer pull Dana & I out of the crowd waiting for the 3:00 parade to have Dana get on his knee & "propose" Then the photographer yelled "she said yes!" & the whole crowd clapped & cheered.

Some CM's were not so lovely. Unfortunately we saw a lot more disgruntled CM's than we have ever seen in the past. One CM at Test Track was so rude that a guest was on his cell calling right there & then to complain.

We had the free QSDP which was great when we saw how much a meal would cost & then it was wiped out to "$0". Lunch was great as we eat early but dinner was a lot busier. Leaving a park & eating CS at a resort was much more pleasant. We ate at GF, CR, POFQ, & POR & all were good.

Real life has gotten in the way of our Disney-high...Dr appts, my moms sick, danas mom was in hospital, school is thursday etc ....I so did not want to come home.

I forgot to add, we went on the new Star Tours...it was so much fun. Each ride is different. Also got to see the new (old) Tiki Birds show which we all loved more than the "under new management" one.

Anne Marie, it sounds like you had a great trip! I can't even tell you how much I enjoy reading about WDW trips and seeing the photos. I want to go back so badly, but at least I can live vicariously through the DDA. I am sorry that real-life hasn't been so great, and I hope everyone is better soon.

Deb, for a pay increase!

Sorry I haven't been posting much. I've been busy and in a bit of a funk. I am really not ready for summer to be ending and the older kids leaving.

Hello, DDA!

We are back and the trip went so well. Bob was a super hero in all he did!! I have no fear about traveling with him any more!!

Of course, we came home following the earthquake. No major damage at our house: a few things fell off shelves and the fireplace; pictures askew and lampshades all cockeyed. The dog was fine and the house is fine, so it was a good homecoming!

Elin that's great. I'm sure it was a huge accomplishment for Bob



We are closely watching the weather forcast. It looks like Irene may come through our backyard. None of the models have it missing us. We are praying that the cold Atlantic waters break it down and there is someland mass before it gets to us. I don't think there's been a hurricane in our area since the 40s. Certainly not in my lifetime.
