Dunno that I could afford that even. I'm pretty well broke since I'm unemployed and have no income. Just surviving off the wifey's check's for the moment.

Well I'm headed back to Vegas tonight on Spirit airlines. I'm kinda worried about some of the reviews I've seen with them not having much leg room(I'm 6'2" after all). We'll see what happens I guess. I'm kinda happy to be heading home but it sucks that I have to fix the shower(only run cold) and a leaky shutoff valve on the bathroom sink. Gotta love older homes! *sigh*

to the SSC Christina!! WE love it when new people join us, so pull up a chair, order up a drink from our resident bartender, and feel free to jump right into the randomness that is the SSC!

Hmmm... and since you have an AP and are 2 hours away, Think you'll be joining us for the meet in October?

I saw that there was a meetup and I would love to go. Is there someone I need to sign up with?

Have you unfolded yourself yet after your Spirit flight? I'm 5'4, and I had a problem with leg room on that airline!

I don't think funding any extra trips are going to be happening in the near future....I got this Saturday:

Which means I have largish expenses in my near future (like a wedding, and hopefully a very short honeymoon-sadly not Disney since my fiance doesn't have any vacation time until after the new year and we plan to marry in early December). He wants to go on a cruise sometime next year, so I suppose I could still end up at Disney then....

Oh right, this girl...
I packed in approximately 5 days last time I moved. I knew about it a month beforehand that I was moving, but I was house-sitting and then hanging out with my future step-daughter 100 miles away from my stuff for most of the time. I've been here a month and I've got a long way to go before I'm unpacked.

just think when you're done packing you get to unpack it in a new place!!
I remember you talking about that, my future sister-in-law had a similar situation and I can't even imagine doing that. I have way too much stuff....

Haha yeah. Just before takeoff they moved me to an exit row for free which was NICE! Haha. Had a ton of leg room. The normal seats would've been brutal for 3 hours! If I ever take them again I will be upgrading to an exit row.

Congrats! That is fantastic news! Were you surprised? How did he propose.? What are your plans? I am very happy for you.


I just returned from Disney last night and had a fantastic time. Was able to sneak in some adult time and explored EPCOT for places to enjoy adult beverages.

For now it is back to reality and work. School is starting this week and I haven't done anything to prepare.

I am getting ready for my long needed birthday week in a few weeks. I am getting away for a nice relaxing long weekend. I can't believe I soon will be 29.

I hope that anyone is in the path of the storm stays safe. Have a great Monday!

Thank you, ladies

I was supposed to be surprised, lol, but I knew he bought the ring (just not exactly what it looked like) *and* as the big giveaway, my best friend was suddenly able to make the 2 hour trip to come visit me, when she hadn't been able to in the month since I moved up here. We had a get together with 5 couples, plus the hubby from another couple (the wife had their 3rd child Tuesday and couldn't make it, lol) and all the kids (a 7th couple was out celebrating their anniversary and stopped by later). We played charades, with the guy acting out and the girl guessing. Dennis, ignored his assigned charade, of course, and acted out "Will you marry me" and when I guessed correctly he said, "No, will you marry me."

We are looking at getting married the first weekend in December, and I'm shooting for as small a wedding as I can get away with, lol. He is a very social person, though, so paring down his side of the guest list could be difficult. There is a very small chance we might move it up to 10/11/12, but I am not sure we will be able to get everything set up quite that quick, so we will see

For those that haven't been around for ages, I used to dog PlentyOfFish and so, of course, that is how we met, lol. I posted on here before our first date that I didn't think I was going to go, because he seemed to be telling me what I wanted to hear...but then I decided to go ahead and meet him and here we are now

I hate coming back, but at least you have your birthday weekend to look forward to, and help with the post-Disney depression!
