Hi,

I saw your post on the budge board a few days ago about reward tv and came over to find out about it. Your daughter is adorable. I never even heard of Garden Grove and now am considering adding it to our trip in October we are going October 29th and either staying 4 or 8 nights. It is still up in the air because we did a 8 day trip in January. We are going to do the Halloween Party for the first time.

I know Garden Grove isn't one of the more popular character meals, but my DH loves buffets, and I've heard great things about the interaction between the kids and Pluto/Goofy. I don't know if we're going to be able to keep it with our budget change, but we will see. I wanted to let you know that Garden Grove used to be on restaurant.com (not sure if it still is), and you could get a $25 certificate for as low as $2.

There are a couple of other Disney restaurants with gift certificates for sale, but I just wanted to share!! Again, sorry for posting random comments.
Thanks for the heads-up. I actually got one for Garden Grove and HOB for $2 a piece a while back. And I love your random posts

Whoops! I probably read that too, but I must have forgotten!

Job Interview

So, completely unexpectedly, I had a phone interview with an online school here in Indianapolis. I am hoping to hear back about a face-to-face interview within the next couple of days.

If I get hired, it may mess up my vacation schedule (we may have to shorten our trip, but we will get to fly, so it would pretty much even out), however, we would have much more $ to work with, and we would be able to start paying off all of our debt. After pretty much being out of work for almost 2 years, this would be such an amazing thing!

We also had a garage sale this weekend, and made about $150 to put towards our trip

Miss P. starts school on Monday, and I'll be sure to upload some pics of her on her 1st day

I am loving your PTR so far I teach online pt, and I do like it alot. The only issue I have ever encountered is having to do a bit of work while on vacation. But on the bright side, I am on vacation, so taking a bit of time out to do that, normally isnt too bad. Best of luck to you

Thanks! I'm glad you're enjoying the PTR so far....I have enjoyed writing it. I can't wait to actually write my Trip Report when we're finished. I would be fine with working on vacation, since I AM on vacation

BTW, your two little ones are adorable!

Can't wait to hear how the face to face interview goes! Is Paisley really old enough to start school? She looks so little! Can't wait to see pictures of her on her first day!

Are you ready for her to start school or do you wish she would just stay young? I know that my mom wished we would just "stay little forever"!

I'm excited because I know she's excited, but it also causes me to have a mild panic attack when I think about being away from her all day

Job Update

So, I just got a call this afternoon that I have a face-to-face interview for the online teaching job! I am very nervous/excited. I will have to find Paisley a new daycare to go to because this job is on the other side of town, and I'm worried that we will have to shorten and/or postpone our trip, but we really need another income, so I guess we'll just roll with it. I will let you all know how it goes!
