I AM PLAYING ARIEL!!!!!

We don't have an Ariel smiley, so I'll just put some of these here since I KNOW someone 'up there' decided to sprinkle some pixie dust on my day:


So now this trip will be filled with much research for costuming (I'm usually on the costume and makeup team anyway) and much buying of various Little Mermaid things, because I never want to forget this! :D
Congratulations!!! That is SO awesome!

We have 6 more days. As we get closer each day seems to get longer and longer. My boys have never been before and I can't wait to share the magic of WDW with them.

I think I'm down to 16 days now and I am in sheer panic mode thinking I have forgotten something.

21 days! Finally remembered to order our Photopass+ this morning. Thank goodness.

Three weeks from right now, we'll be aboard our plane, waiting to taxi down the runway.

We went through this a year ago, and I was in a total frenzy for a whole month waiting for the "decision" to be made by tptb, and it actually felt a little anti-climactic when they decided to keep the office after all. I think I'm handling it a little better this time around, but DH isn't all of the sudden! He is such a ball of stress that he has been impossible to be around for 48 hours, lol! I'm just choosing to focus on Disney instead. With only 5 weeks left until we leave (yay!!!!), NOTHING is going to interfere with this trip! (Hopefully I didn't just jinx it, ha!)
Well, today is THE DAY. The "big bosses" are flying in from California to deliver the bad news in person, that they are indeed closing DH's office. (He of course, is not supposed to know this yet, but his immediate boss has been secretly keeping him in the loop)

So it's been a very stressful 24 hours, and at this point I just want to know what we're dealing with. The uncertainty is driving me crazy! We are assuming that he will have the option to either be a remote employee working from home (I see this as being a disaster honestly, both for him AND us!) or move to San Francisco. We've gone back and forth, thinking we should just move and get it over with, since it would probably be better for his career in the long run anyway, and then thinking we have way too much going for us here in Colorado and need to try as hard as we can to stay. And then the super-pessimistic side of me starts worrying that they'll do something crazy and just lay everyone off instead. I know the chances of that are next to nothing, but still...it would be disastrous if it did happen.

Sigh. I just want to focus on Disney and the fact that our trip is barely 2 weeks away, but now I have this huge cloud of stress putting a damper on everything! Maybe I'll go blast some Disney music and try to forget all these tedious, real-world dilemmas!

I hate that, when you can't just enjoy the pre-Disney bliss because of other stressors. That's how I felt a couple weeks ago when I was dealing with health stuff, I felt like "who gives a crap about Disney, I have more important things to worry about!"
Hopefully everything will be just fine and you can get back to worrying about the important stuff like which snacks to get or which desserts to order.
