What if someone on the Dis board
Has a better narrator than mine?

Can you feel my stress tonight?
Paying off this retreat
Rentals, buses, groceries, characters
Avoiding young athletes

Planning every moment
Starts to feel so right
Should I fit the only potty break in
Morning, noon or night?

So many things to change here
Just because I can
I have the time so why not get on-line
And now choose Biergarten

Can you feel my stress tonight?
Making lists for days
Shopping, packing, even lists of lists
Can calm my neurotic ways

And should my spreadsheet disappear
Or my husband whine
If you don’t see me on the boards again
I may…. have…. lost….. my mind……………
Great song!

Cant wait for empty park pics (with or without PP photogs!)
The only early ADR we have is Akershus at 8:25. If we are done with breakfast before the 9:30 am WS opening, will they let us stay back in the WS? We will probably NOT be done before then but I was just wondering. I wish I had thought about an early ADR at MK.

I know....you will have to remedy that! We're still toying the idea of whether or not we should even do the BOG cs. I have a dinner ADR already and there really isn't a perfect time to do the cs. I think we'll just play that one by ear. It was so much easier to NOT have FD. Then we ate exactly what we wanted but could afford. I hate to say it but I know we'll be eating things we aren't even hungry for because we're upgrading to DxDDP. This will probably be the only time we do this so I guess I'll chock it up to being a way to eat at places we'll probably never eat at again.

BUT have babysat for friends and family throughout the years and have now registered with a local sitting site that is allowing me to make enough to not only make ends meet but keep the vacation on track (luckily it was already 80% paid!). And unemployment is a God send! (Am applying everywhere but everyone says that no one is hiring until after the election!!)

So now I'm allowing myself to get excited again! Will be me, DS#1 (29), DIL (24), DS#2 (also 29), DD (27) DD's boyfriend (31), my precious grandson (3) and me!! Woo Hoo!!! Back to planning our days, our ressies - can't WAIT!!
That is GREAT news! I will think happy thoughts for you and your employment prospects. I'm sure this trip will be the most wonderful trip ever!

Doesn't WS normally open at 11, or is that an EMH day?

That sounds great. I love watching and meeting new and different people. If you could get your ivory tower can I help?

Good news - my FIL was cleared to travel. They're on their way to their house in FL. That's one hurdle out of the way.

Correct. WS always opens at 11 no matter what time the park opens. I don't think they will let them hang out too long in WS after their meal.

I'm an amateur cultural anthropologist myself. By that, I mean that I have been a bouncer at a Boston bar for 18 yrs . I have seen people at their best and worst. And I agree... People watching in WDW must be similar to being Jane Goodall.
