I'm hoping to get another update tonight. I was going to do it during the day today, but I'm missing a couple pictures so I have to re-upload them when I get home (I really hate new Photobucket!!)
Hehe I think we should form a support group or protest group for photobucket!,,

TRIP UPDATE:

Good news/Bad news time: I have the dates for when I will be in Florida, April 4-8th!! But I won't be at WDW . Steve's hip is still really bugging him from his pinched nerve to the point where walking is painful for him. Walking 7-10 miles a day at a park is completely out of the question. Doesn't make much sense to stay at a WDW hotel either, as they are pretty expensive if you can't do anything while there. So I will be going to Bradenton and hanging out with him there. We will have to do WDW sometime in the future. But at least I know I will be getting a mini-vacation and getting to see him, so that makes me excited!! And it's only 9 days away!!!

I'm glad you get to go see Steve; but I'm I won't get to see you (as we are there on the 7th and 8th).

There is a SLIGHT chance I may be able to head over to WDW on the 7th and see you, but it's very slight. If I can though, I will let you know as soon as I know!

At least you know something now and at least you're still going to get to see Steve. That's a good thing!

Yup! Not knowing was driving me crazy, so knowing is great.

I enjoyed the Sarasota area. However I was very young (17) I remember really loving Venice Beach though.... Do you know anyone else besides Steve in the area? Good luck with working towards it- I enjoy moving to new places.

My uncle used to live on Siesta Key, but moved to Miami last year. I have another friend who lives in Bradenton as well, though we aren't super close.

Bummer that you won't be going to Disney. I know it's going to hurt being that close yet still so far away! But at least you get to visit a good friend.

I'll be sad to not be at WDW, but I know I will have a great time with Steve so I'm not disappointed.

Sorry I have been MIA lately! With this being Spring Break week I'm very busy at work. To top it off yesterday was my birthday. Unfortunately that was not a good thing really as I have a bad "tradition" of things going wrong on my birthday. Yesterday was no exception. Half hour after getting in my office I fainted and fell out of my chair, hitting my head on the desk and table that holds my printer before hitting the concrete floor. I was out about 5 minutes before I came to. I wound up with a lump and cut on my forehead, a lump and scrape on the top of my head, a lump on the left side of my head and bruises all over my arms and legs. And a very sore neck too. I went home a bit later and got some sleep which helped some, but my head is still sore today.

I am hoping to get an update done later today, though it might not be until late as I have a bunch of animal visits to do before that. And even though I'm not going to WDW, I do want to give a little info about my upcoming trip since I'll probably do a mini-recap of it here afterward.
