And even though I had a brief moment where I wasn't interested in seeing characters, I never outgrew loving the animated classics.

I remember going through the stage of thinking I was "too grown up" to visit with the characters. My oldest gets like that until she gets there.

We all love the animated classics. I especially love the old Donald Duck war propaganda ones.

But they LOVE the 5 minute Mickey/Goofy/Pluto episodes that play between shows.

Same with mine even when they were 12 and 13 they would sit down in front of the TVs to watch in the lobby.

Wow...I don't know if you can really handle that -- going to DL yet another time!!

So excited for you!!

Oh you should watch them. I love all of them, the kids really enjoyed them a lot when they were little.

And yay! Another trip. You don't even know how much I am craving a DL trip right now. I so badly want to live closer so I can get an AP and go more often! But for now I will live vicariously through you.

She was saying this morning that she doesn't want to stay alone in November. I am going to tell her that she can have a friend stay at the house while we are gone.

Kelly, to tell you the truth I have had the other trip for a while but it was going to be solo and I didn't want to post too much about it and make the kids upset.

It never ceases to amaze me that the smallest thing makes a difference. My mom is 75 years old. Her hearing isn't great because she punctured an ear drum years ago cleaning her ear with keys and bobby pins. There is a lesson here kids don't ever put anything but your elbow in your ear!! Her other ear became very clogged with wax and what little hearing she had was severely hampered by this. I took her to the Dr last week a routine visit, while we were there I was there as her ears. Yes, it is that bad. The Dr scheduled her to have her ear washed. So for three days we were putting mineral oil in her ear. They cleaned it out today and so far she is hearing better. Keep your fingers crossed that she continue to improve.


The other small thing is our cable box went out in our bedroom and WBG and I have been without noise in our room. What a shock it is to walk out of our quite little world into the rest of the house and it is bedlam. I am enjoying the quiet in there and on the other hand I am missing the background noise of the TV. The cable guy is supposed to come out today. Yay!!!


I guess I will read. Too bad there isn't a Disneyland book I haven't read. Sigh.

Glad the cleaning helped her hearing. Too bad about the injury though. How is her balance?

Maybe you need to switch to some WDW books. The Kingdom Keepers series is pretty decent. It's written for age 10 and up, but I've found them pretty good even as a an adult.

Thank you. Her balance is actually pretty good strangely enough.


I read Kingdom Keepers. I enjoyed it. I tend to read the YA books because unlike a lot of women I know I am not into this 50 Shades of Grey book series.

It's good that your mom's hearing is better! Hopefully it stays that way for a while.

When we moved we decided not to put a tv in our room, and I am actually glad we did. I find I sleep better if I haven't already been laying in bed for hours watching tv.

Have you read that ebook, Sunrise to Sunrise or whatever it's called? I think it is mostly photos, but i really want to read it. It's about Disneyland on the One More Disney Day day.

I hope so to Andrea.


It is the quiet in the room that is getting to me. I miss the background white noise when I am in there.


I need to look for that for my Nook. Thank you for the suggestion Andrea.

I finally have it so that it is loading and we have most of our channels. I am giving 24 hours from when it started before I call again. We are watching Nicole's favorite show Wipe Out.

Ok, so it is weird that I am typing this to someone I don't know personally, but I recommend using hydrogen peroxide for ear cleaning. It will fizz and bubble, and if you tip your head and pour it in it will have a baking soda + vinegar type reaction. But you then tip your head the other way and it drains, and wow. Clean ears!!!

Double Digits!!


It has been so long since I have been here I need to blow out the cobwebs and the dust!!


There has been a lot of stuff going on and I just haven't had the heart to plan. It is time to get back to some serious planning.



We are down one family member for the trip so far. Snow White has decided that she shouldn't miss the school and that she would rather spend the time with her girlfriend. I am cool with that. Plus she is actively looking for a job, she just had an interview on Friday with Justice and has another with Costco on Tuesday. That is the one I am hoping she gets. It's a really good first job. It starts at $11 an hour and she is guaranteed 25 hours a week. As a full time student carrying 15 credits that should work for her.



So, now that I have dusted it off I will be back later to trip plan!!
