I am in the insurance industry. I have worked for 3 different insurance companies over the years. Hmmm, maybe more. There have been so many mergers, I get myself confused.
That's a good article. I (DH) had friends that use to work for Manulife I think it was. Even back then I had worked for two small startups. That area always was big for the startups.

Happy Friday everyone!!!

Only 19 more Fridays!!!

It's really getting closer now! Especially when I realized that the first "Friday Countdown" I did was when there were 68 Fridays to go almost a year ago. And it's been over an year since we booked our cruise. That seemed like so long ago...

Manulife pays for my Disney addiction.

30 days or just over 4 weeks before GOLD can book their PALO reservations.

My Mother and I (29) have just booked our first Disney Cruise, we are so excited and would love to meet you all. We are also going to DL, WDW and the 7 Night Fantasy cruise on this holiday so we are feeling very lucky right now.

At the moment our biggest challenge is how we are going to put up with one another for so long it has been ages since we have lived together. We are both leaving our significant others at home . We just feel that it will be great to have some time together. We are a little late to the party and haven't really planned much out, so any help you can give me in the coming months will be very much appreciated .

Nope. Self Employed HR Consultant. Not sure if anyone is left at Maple Leaf locally. I believe they are all transferring to Hamilton.

Just realized that this countdown will be bringing exciting news about the cruise getting closer and OMG, I better keep focused on my training for the 10 miler race I am in the night before we leave. Not sure what I was thinking when I signed up for two races in one day. I will be the person at the cruise terminal taking the elevator instead of the stairs and leaned against a pillar having a quick nap from lack of sleep, if I party in the park until 4:00AM that morning. This is one of those things that you are excited about it one moment, and then kicking yourself for doing it the next moment.

Hi all,

Unfortunately, we will not be sailing on this cruise as we originally planned.
We will have to change the date bc I just found out we are expecting our 2nd child and I will be beyond the 24 week cut off for this sailing.

Have a great time!!

Well it's been almost a week since I disembarked the Wonder on a great WBPC cruise. It was awesome. Now I can start focusing in this cruise. Here is a pic I took at Castaway. The Dream came to say goodbye to the Wonder as she will not be back at Castaway for a while.

Hi everyone..it's your friendly Disboard slacker.. lol

Just wanted to drop by and say that I know I said I would have an up to date count for the FE, however, at the time I didn't think about the fact that my birthday was on Saturday and that I was leaving for St. Louis on Sunday. I will be heading back to TN tomorrow and will sit down at my computer and have a list for you by this weekend.
