You know I have a terrible time with napping. I wake up more tired than I was to begin with. It is a rare time that I feel refreshed after my nap.

Sounds like me. I can't nap. I wake up feeling sick, confused, and more tired, yet I will be unable to fall asleep that night. It sets off a vicious cycle of tired>nap>insomnia>tired>nap.... I've had to cut naps out of my life.

So glad to find fellow non-nappers.

It's actually one of the ways we figured out SO early that I was pregnant with Eamon; I was napping! And falling asleep at 8pm. And missing the midnight chocolate buffet on the cruise. (I still regret that one)

Doesn't it? I planned for that thing for a year. And then I slept through it. And Robert's pictures were blurry.

And...they had the line for viewing at one time. Then you leave the room, get in another line, and later they open it up for eating.

Robert came back to the room after he took pictures to try to wake me up. He was unsuccessful. He went and gambled a bit (and won). Then got to the buffet LATE, so missed out on the chocolate covered strawberries, which he was ORDERED to get me!

So the next day in Skagway he took his winnings and bought me a bracelet to try to make it up to me....did not work! (he certainly wasn't supposed to be gambling! we had such a low salary then and gambling=throwing away money which is FINE if you have it to throw away but we didn't! so even though he won, he still was in the newly married doghouse LOL)

Anyway, someday we'll go on another RCCL cruise and I'll stay up and see the chocolate buffet.

**************

E and I were just watching the 2005 planning DVD, and he listed allll these WDW things he wants to do. I told him there's no time, especally if we're going to Universal.

He said he doesn't want to go to Universal, except for maybe ONE day, he wants to spend the whole time at WDW!

Back to the drawing board....

Oh wow. E wants to have his say. That is that Disney upbringing.

Well he does get to have his opinions!

Robert tempers it, though. Says that E doesn't know what he's talking about, and if we went without seeing HP or having a Butterbeer we'd have a crying kid (and husband) on the plane home.

So I nearly cry while planning so as to avoid the guys crying on vacation! OK I exaggerate tremendously. But I do earn my keep by planning these trips, LOL!

I am betting that no matter what you plan they will both be thrilled. I love the planning part. I had the devil of a time not actually planning more on my last trip. And ironically I made all the meal plans and we only kept one of them and that was to Cafe Orleans.

I don't know if you have heard but Disneyland is making changes in the eating places menus. They are going away from the usual amusement park menus. Like for instance they have totally changed the menu at the eatery in Fantasyland that the name escapes me. And at the Hungry Bear. The Hungry Bear is the one that interests me the most, the only real change I heard about so far is a fried green tomato sandwich.

Aw damn, my brother's cat died today. She was rather old and had this funky tumor in her ear canal...she was lucky enough to have owners with the money to pay for radiation treatments which helped her get around 9 more months here, but finally she just got too sick. Dagnabit.

She's another link to my mom, gone...she knew my mom, she was the amazing non-allergenic cat that even my mom could be in a house with. She found my brother and sis in law when they were newly married in their first house, she could follow commands and was pretty much the smartest cat I've ever known (my brother has a knack for getting smart cats, the outdoor one that adopted us and became "his" was really smart too...he might be the Cat Whisperer)...and I'm so sad.

Oh Molly, I am so sorry to hear this. I know what it is like to lose a pet like that. It isn't just losing a pet it is losing a member of the family. A few weeks ago my bird died and the girls guinea pig died. It was a rough week.

Yeah, Ella Pigarella for years. We had adopted her when Kacy was in the 7th grade and she was 5 at the time. And Kacy is a senior now. She would talk to me whenever I was near her cage. I would sing and she would sing along.

We still have one guinea pig he is Popcorn who we adopted from a preschool, several feral cats I feed, and a beautiful German Shepherd so we are far from being petless.
