They were also only running Main Street Electrical Parade on certain nights. During the 5 days we were there, there was only one night when non-party ticket holders could see Wishes and MSEP. MK was slammed on that night comparatively. Extra Magic Hours can also impact a parks crowd levels.
Take that ownage haha

MSEP is prob a good reason for the 7, I do think that's one of only 2 days that week they are doing it

- I crank up the Aerosmith tumes in the car while I am driving to work. That takes care of Test Track and RnRC
- I run into people I haven't seen for a while and say "It's a Small World"
- And I work with a bunch of Dumbo's
This is why you are my hero!! This was our best trip ever! We had a great time. I'll post some pics soon.

I'm excited for those crowd levels. We've only been down in the fall once, and for a short time, so this trip should be great.

He prescribed a drug that should counter it. After a while they will wean her off the medication. Hopeful that it works. We are both breathing a little easier for now.

Really tough when you kid is sick and you aren't there to do anything about it. She handled it like a trooper.

I've got all the laundry under way, last load washing. save some other non-related clothes I'll get to later or tonight. All their bedding is changed and washed, all stuffed toys sealed up for two weeks (this broke Amelia's heart, her beloved Wolf stuffie is gone for a bit.) DW did the treatments and combed/hunted through their hair. Girls in bed finally, still lots to do though. We both took tomorrow off to deal.

Thanks for the shoulder guys...
Prayers for both of you.

When the kids get back to school we usually see both our boys come down with something, Jonathan had a headache and was stuffed up last night, hopefully this is not a sign of things to come.

NOT going to be a good week. Manager just got news he's been promoted, so he's gone, being replaced with a guy with a big rep for making people miserable. Long list of grievences with the union etc.

Got home to find out both kids caught lice again. Now I've got a long night of cleaning to do.

I am not a happy camper right now.

OK, breath. In-out-in-out.

I'm sure it will work out. It's usually not as bad as everyone makes it. Sorry to hear about the lice. It has gone around these parts every year, luckily (knock on wood) the kids haven't gotten it. Just remember: we are all in your corner if you need to vent.

The problem with having people in your corner is when you live in a round room.




Thanks guys...hopefully the worst is over. Just got to make sure Amelia is in the clear...Audrey looks good, but Amelia's head is like Disneyland to these guys. reallly thick hair. Treatment's done, cleaning/decontamination done. Just gotta make sure we got 'em all. Not as bad as the first time it happened, where it took us 2 weeks to get it licked.

Yeah...me too.

Somehow, I'm still expecting to fall into last during the lockout. Weird...I wonder if they voted against the lockout again like they did the last time...
