I had to work like a damn rented mule to handle my financial business... I've taken up presenting Passion Parties on the side (call me) to help with funds also, but all in all, I finally closed on my house on November 17th, just moved in 3 weeks ago. Still finding my way around homeownership. Here's me raking leaves for the first time since I was like 8.

SHE LIVES!!

Only thing left to do is to spend MLK weekend at WDW.
Congrats!

Hey girl, the crowds have built, but honestly as long as you are prepared for them they are not bad. I come when DD is off school, so I am used to the crowded times honestly and have learned how to manage them. Today at Animal Kingdom lines were 60-90 minutes, but we never waited longer then 20, just got to the park early to have some shorter lines, and got the fast passes we wanted, and enjoyed our day!

We are staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge this trip, so we tried Boma and Saunaa, YUM, but Saunaa was our favorite this trip if you like indian/african food it is well worth it!

I am leaving tomorrow, sad to go after today which couldn't have been better...

Yeah it definitely will. I'll be back in my career field. Long story short, I got a girlfriend, I moved back to Tucson for jobs promised to both of us by a former friend, got screwed out of the jobs, found some temp work out here, got engaged and now finally found the job in Cali.

I can imagine! haha. Glad things are going well.

Always a sad day when the ME comes to pick you up for a return to the airport! Sounds like you had a great trip, Tara. Almost down to single digits for me!

Oh yeah, my solo trip I had Sanaa and enjoyed it. The restuarant has great atmosphere also! Yes, I am definitely prepared for the crowds but have gotten spoiled by going at the lowest peak times the last few trips. Glad you having a great time!

Nope.... not yet.




I get into work today and a co-worker informs me that his woman told him last night that they are going to Disney next month. Looks like I'm helping to plan.

I just heards that Disney has changed their race schedule, and added a new race. Instead of the W&D Half, the same weekend brings back the ToT race, a bit longer at 10 miles. The W&D is being moved to November 9th, which is the last week of the F&W. And also Jersey week, i believe. So now I have some thinking to do, was planning for a May trip for the EE race, but cannot swing four trips. But I could find a way....

DC, have fun planning your friends trip, I seem to get a lot of questions at work about Disney.

After the announcement, I'm more inclined to run the W&D half. It's too much of a hassle to travel from for a 10 mile race for me, and the new W&D date should work out well for my personal schedule. It was getting too expensive to travel for marathon weekend next month, so I could try this race for fun.

Also, I have relatives from Jersey and they don't fall into the stereotype we are all aware of on tv. They're good people and I'm certain I'd have a good time meeting people from New Jersey.

hi ho my little elves...
so I know everyone is probably doing that last minute "OMG I forgot this person" gift shopping now and I hope you get it done. but in the spirit of Christmas I pose these two questions to you all:
If you have done something "nice" for someone (not just the gift/giftcard thing) what was it?
If you have been "naughty" what did you do? (remember we are on a public board that's monitored )

Does starting this thread and helping to arrange the Meets this past year count as something Nice?


As For Naughty..... I think at this juncture I'm just going to claim the 5th.

Yeah, if you claim the whole fifth and don't share it I would call that naughty.

I agree CA...claiming the 5th to himself is definitely naughty.


Another major milestone in my move to Florida today. I turned in my computer and keys to my now former employer.

Why yes! Starting this thread does count as something nice...and bonus for finding your !

As for pleading the 5th....I think there will be a lot of that occurring on this answer.

I can tell you my nice and naughty stories:
My nice was a joint effort, my bff from home and I took our friend's daughters out to find and cut down a Christmas tree this weekend. she's been working like mad hrs (75+ a week) and hasn't spent any time getting ready for Christmas much less time with her kids. so we got her tree (first time I ever cut down a tree by the way ) got it in the house and put the lights on and cleaned the house for her. when she got home the first thing she smelled was the tree and she just cried. we made her week. we even took her kids shopping for ingredients to bake cookies and finish their Christmas shopping....just call us Santa's elves!

my naughty was more funny than naughty...I spent the day with my bff for her birthday, a spa day to be exact. afterwards we went out for a few adult beverages and then home. unfortunately I had not eaten all day and when I went home I decided to "hang the outside lights" and lawn decorations. while I didn't fall hanging the lights I was leaning over to place the deer and ....well let's just say you should never decorate after drinking cosmos....
