Well how many people around the world would love to be this close and make many trips. Might as well enjoy what's in our backyard.
Funny thing is DW was just asked and I get it all the time why do we always go to universal and Orlando and I say it's because we love orlando and universal is our favorite theme park and I have no desire to go anywhere else

You know...I haven't been to WDW in probably three years and I don't miss anything about it. I really debated about getting an AP again this year but I decided against it. If I want to go, I'll get a FL resident ticket for the day or something. They are usually running deals for residents and now that its starting to get hot during the day, I wouldn't be there in the first place. Disney just doesn't do it for me any longer.

BTW...congrats Marcie!

Brab...good to see you stop by every now and then.

Your right Todd.

Back in the day when there was only Disney World and Epcot it was fine. Then a new guy came to town, Universal. Yes they had a rocky start but from day one Universal won us over. Every time we drove up we had to include Universal with Disney's 2 then 3 parks. After many visits and Universal expanding the choice became easy. The last time we were at Disney was 2008 and have tossed around going again. But we always decided not to and our son shows no interest. We even had free one day hopper passes last summer and we never left Universal property. We have Seaworld tickets this year and hope we make it there.

What bothers me more is when I say we are going away and they ask where I say Orlando. The next thing is "You going to Disney?"

I hear you. When you live here its easier to choose all the parks but we still choose US. I think Universal should hire us for good PR.

Maybe we should start going in June to catch up you.

What's funny is I have been in FL since 1982 and I have been to the Keys twice. But what's worse is DW and DS have never been. People ask from out of state hey it must be nice to go to the beach all the time, nope never go. We live 5 minutes away. I work right on the water and my DW works 1/2 block from the beach. I know it's crazy, but so aren't we.

Yeah.... I get it. We live about an hour from Wash DC (all that HISTORY, all those FREE museums!) but we rarely go. Don't get me wrong -- I love when I DO go and I really appreciate what's there. I guess it's true for most people -- whatever's further away and harder to get to, you seem to appreciate more!

marcie, you haven't gained an ounce in the past 25 years.
still thin and trim.

Raven,
Can't stay up at late as you, plus, I think it was past 11pm my time.

Had a nice picnic at parental unit's house. Left overs in the frig. Made chocolate dipped strawberries and tried making a chocolate banana too. DD helped with dipping pretzel sticks in the chocolate and rolling them in sprinkles. Yep, I think I have a sprinkle somewhere still in my kitchen. Neatness is not one of her traits right now. It was fun though.

Back to the work week, and each day it's going to get hotter, with the last days of the week close to 90 F. Ugh. Time to get the summer clothes out again. Actually wore a jacket on Sat., was cool, and even a jacket needed last night. Need umbrella today.

Hope those that have too much water are getting some relief. We can get flooding at the Jersey shore, but haven't seen that kind of flooding over so much area. Living in an area betwen two large rivers, we get steamy and only local flooding of those close to the rivers.

Marcie, both of you have hardly changed at all.....congrats

We will be married 21 years in September.......loved every minute of it too


I love getting the house decorated but hate the upheaval of it. Doing DS bedroom next week.........or the following.

Just doing one room seems to put the the whole house out of order and dusty.......but it needs doing.

Don't float away!

Rain all day. Never got to see the sun. Quiet night so far.

It is cool now, so I will be making a cup of tea soon.

And to show my age, we've been married for 21 years so far. Yeah, I stopped counting awhile ago. . Guess that is why I said 20 before. Old age setting in!

Dog just jumped on the couch to get next to me. House is almost too cold. Hate to turn on the heater when the weather people are saying get your AC ready.
