I cleared off the "extra" desk (my old desk that I grew tired of and replaced before getting rid of it) and then my aunt (mom's sister) called. So I figure that's enough cleaning, LOL.


I called for an appointment, but because I have been diagnosed as having migraines rather than have me see a DR I had a phone appointment. He prescribed Vicodin for this migraine and a migraine medicine for next time. If it is not better by morning I have to go get a shot. I like the phone appointment system.

Your trip looks great to me! I would love to do BBB sometime but alas I am to old to be a Princess, I am more Maleficent or Ursala. I used to want an Ursala tattoo.

Oh, well good! I was reading it as being a difficult thing for you. I'm glad I was wrong!

Michele, I hope you are feeling better!




There, I booked our trip-bookend nights. Used a hotels.com free night on one, and Hilton rewards on the other. First night in we'll stay at the Convention Center Hilton again; we did that in December '07, I believe. It was a decent place with good coffee (my first time seeing the keurigs, or keurig-like coffeemakers), and this time we aren't getting up at the crack of dawn. Then we'll close out out trip at a Hilton Suites over near the highway...seemed like an interesting place, though maybe in an uninteresting area. If we're parked-out, there's a pool, etc.

We're flying down on Virgin America, where the only bummer is paying for all checked bags. We're hoping to start flying them more, though, to start earning status. Flying home, however, on United. And on that flight, since we're flying with Robert, we could bring SIX checked bags and not pay for any of them.



Last week I pre-ordered Photopass Plus. I'm crossing fingers and toes that it gets here in time! You're supposed to order it with more lead time.

No, I thought it was easier. I could have never left my house and just sent Scotty to go get my medicine for me.


In theory I am better. It is down to a low roar now. Vicodin is kicking my rear end.


We stayed at the Hilton Suites in 2003. It was one of our best trips. The room was nice and it was quiet place too which is really nice. The Anaheim Angels stadium is in the neighborhood.

I keep forgetting that other people have husbands who don't travel for work and are actually available for getting things like prescriptions!

glad it's at a low roar. I'm impressed that vicodin works for you. When I've had it, it barely cuts the pain and then makes me ANGRY. That's a bad combo, LOL.

Glad to know someone has stayed there!

It really depends on me how my body reacts to vicodin. It normally wires me and this time it is knocking me out. Strange really.


Yeah, it was a good stay. Good enough that my oldest Kacy always refers to it as that nice hotel. We had a corner suite which was nice, we had two different small balconies.

I almost booked that corner suite! But I didn't want to make us CRY to leave, LOL.


Just found that the WW meeting site I figured we'd go to (twice during this trip!) is just down the road from Trader Joes at the Village at Orange. And I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but before TJs was on our radar at all, we started off our first big Disneyland trip at the Village at Orange, trying to get Robert's swimsuit exchanged! Oh man, good times. I'll tell the story if I never told it/if we've all forgotten it from that '07 trip report. Anyway, when we first drove into the TJ parking lot and I saw where we were, I had this huge flashback of the swimsuit story...

I'll tell the story anyway. Gives me something to do other than dust and sweep and otherwise prepare for Robert to get home tomorrow. Also gives me something to do other than cough and blow my nose. Don't even feel sick anymore, but I guess the battleground where this cold virus was fought still has its own cleaning to do.


Back for the '07 trip, it coincided (or we made it coincide?) with my HS reunion in San Jose. We drove down, visited with my dad, went to the reunion. IN preparation for this, I ordered Robert some swimsuits from JCPenney. It was towards the end of the season so they were on clearance, and there weren't many choices. We got this one suit that for some reason was called "surfer girl", but there wasn't any apparent reason for this so it wasn't something we paid much attention to. We got the suits, they seemed good and they fit.

After spending time with my dad, we moved to our hotel in San Jose for the reunion, and later one night, we all went swimming. DH was in the pool and then got out, and I saw a problem. When in the water, a print came out on the swim shorts. A "surfer girl". IF you consider surfer girls to look more like "mud flap" girls in that nekkid sitting almost-playboy-esque pose.



This would NOT do for Disneyland! We imagined DH getting kicked out of the pool. As immediately as we could, we got in touch with JC Penney. They did NOT believe us. There was nothing on their site and there were no reviews, so they just kept describing the suit to us. No no no no. Finally they indicated they would help us, but the problem was that we were on the move! I remember having to go to a mall in east SJ that used to have an ice skating rink, to try to deal with the problem in person, and I can't remember what the deal was, but they couldn't help us. They still barely believed us. We had to leave town to get to Anaheim, and we had a very hurried call just before we hit some section of the road that didn't look very cellphone friendly.

They ended up rushing whatever suits they still had in his size to the JCP at the mall where Trader Joes is now, so we had to get out there early in our Disneyland stay.

We somehow found the place (it was '07 and we were at a different place with money and technology, and for some reason this process was extremely difficult...not to mention E was only 3!) and found the bowels of JCPenney, and this time I brought the suit AND a cup of water and was prepared to pour the water on the suit to SHOW them what it did when exposed to water. They had heard all about our trials and tribulations, and were prepared to believe us, so I didn't have to do the show and tell. I wish I had, though.

Shortly after, we checked the website, and by that time they did show the "surfer girl" in a little picture. Still looked nothing like a "surfer", but oh well.




So I think it was the trip that E and I took after a reunion in AZ, when he got so sick and I needed to get to Trader Joe's to get supplies and vitamins and whatnot, and I got directions and drove in and was amazed that it was the same mall! It's the swimsuit mall.

I didn't think about the WW meetings. YOu know for kicks while you are there you all could go exercise with RS.


Oh what a hassle that all was. I am betting you weren't the only complaint. They wouldn't put that on their website otherwise. I can see somebody like a teenage boy thinking that was a "Hot" idea. How emabarassing. I love Trader Joe's and Fresh and Easy.

things to do

My things to do list.



Stop coughing.

Continue cleaning up.

Finish laundry.

Gather sunscreen.

Figure out what I'm taking. What Eamon's taking. What Robert's taking.

Figure out if/when to do Surf's Up.

Think about those pancakes, french toast, and huevos rancheros on the Steakhouse 55 menu that have me thinking about Steakhouse 55.

Gather the little things together, including the photopass plus voucher that came today, woo!

Donate more of E's old clothes tomorrow.

Mail some things tomorrow.

Finish E's costume. Eep!

Ugh. If I have to not exercise one more day I"m going to go bananas. And I'm going to end up with sciatica. And I'm going to be bored out of my skull. Turns out I'd gotten quite used to exercising! This coughing isn't fun at all. It MUST be done by tomorrow!

Sure hope your cough clears up in time!

Molly, you should. Richard has a great class, E can do it too. I think that it is still $12 a person to exercise and Richard is always fun and the more the merrier! Here is a link to RS schedule for October.


I hope your cough goes away!


What did you end up getting for E's costume? I know he is going to be a pirate.
