I'm sorry, Mary Ellen. Remember: 1) This too shall pass. 2) Don't give up hope. You still might find an ideal job.

I'm so sorry about your job. And all the other things you're dealing with.
I hope you won't have to cancel your October trip. Usually if you tell new jobs up front about a planned vacation they're fine with it.

How is your dad doing?

MY WOMAN AIN'T PRETTY (BUT SHE DON'T SWEAR NONE)
Lyrics and music by Frankie Starr and Paul E. Miller

I got a woman, she's got me.
Whatever we do, we both agree.
She ain't pretty, but I ain't too.
The things we like are the things we do.

My woman ain't pretty, but she don't swear none.
She's kinda heavy, don't weigh a ton.
She's my woman, through and through.
I lover her only 'cause my heart is true.

MAMA, DON'T WHIP LITTLE BUFORD
Lyrics and music by Kenneth C. Burns and Henry D. Haynes

Mama don't whip little Buford.
Mama don't pound on his head.
Mama don't whip little Buford.
I think you should shoot him instead.

PRETTY LITTLE DEVILISH MARY
Lyrics and music by Bradley Kincaid

Hadn't been married but about two weeks,
She got as mean as the devil.
And every time I looked cross-eyed,
She'd hit me on the head with a "shevil."


and of course

ALL THE GUYS THAT TURN ME ON TURN ME DOWN
Lyrics and music by Plot and Powell

BLOOD ON THE SADDLE
Lyrics and music by Everett Cheetham


not sure you need the lyrics on those last two!
Thanks for providing the lyrics!

I wouldn't propose changing the lyrics one iota. I think the animatronics could be improved though to make the movements look more lifelike. You know, more like how singing bears really look.

Mary Ellen, this is NOT what I wanted to read!
I am so sorry your trip is off, but I hope that the job situation clears up SOON.

Lots of Pixie dust for you!

Oh Mary Ellen, I'm sorry to hear that the trip was cancelled. I'm sure that there is some worry about the right job coming along but it'll happen. God has a plan for you. Of that I am sure. I'll say a prayer that he'll reveal the plan to you sooner rather than later.

I remember when I had to cancel our May, 2008 WDW trip because of a job change. It sucked! But, I moved to a better job and, miraculously, when I mentioned to my boss that I wanted to go to Disney in August, he said "go ahead" even though I had only been working for him for just a few months.

It'll happen for you. I know it will.

another day caught up on. I will def be trying Le Frous Brew and I so want those B&B pillows but they'll take up a lot of luggage space so will have to take less clothes!

I'd def like to stay at WL one day and am a big Poly fan so lovely to see your photos.

I've never done the tikki room, might have to try that next trip but I do have a soft spot for COP.

It'll happen for you. I know it will.
I have to echo this too, when I started at my current job (April 1 start date) I'd already had a mid April DCA trip planned and was simply upfront about it in the interview and negotiation process and it wasn't a problem. I also had a 2 week trip planned for August of that same year and just discussed it all up front.

We were able to work it out and I'm confident wherever you end up, you'll be able to as well.

MEK, I'm sorry to hear about the trouble with vacations and work. I hope it all works out for you.

Thanks Lisa. I really appreciate all the positive thoughts. It really seems more difficult for my mom then most people. It's a constant challenge.

Thank you. It is a weird feeling because I have basically been working since I got out of college. Uncomfortable is the best way I can describe it!

Welcome back stranger. So glad you are gradually getting caught up. The party was fantastic. We all really enjoyed it!

I still have my feet and my gloves AND my wig! I just couldn't part with them. I'm sure I will never use them again, but I'm not ready to part with them.

You can thank Cynthia for the creative costume idea. It really was brilliant!

Cynthia - I'm so with you on CBJ! The first time I had seen it was at Disneyland as a little girl and had watched it up until they took it out in 2001. In fact, I missed it in 2001 by a few days because we were there during 9/11 and it had closed a few days before But when I found out it was still at WDW I was extremely happy. A dated, but great show

Mary Ellen - I swear, if I don't catch your update right when it happens, i'll be PAGES behind!

You do look really great in that picture for having been running!

I still haven't eaten at R&C yet (DH won't let me make an ADR) but i'm determined to get there someday.

Yeah - I was pretty surprised. I thought the whole purpose was for them to have you draw the classics, but I guess the CMs must get tired of that and need a bigger variety.

They definitely do make it easy to draw the characters. My drawing never looks like theirs, but the resemblance is always there.

I never saw it as a child so I can't even comment. But as an adult I thought it was totally corny and I haven't been back since.

I hope he loves it there. He confided in me that he knows its a good choice but he doesn't want to be stuck in Delaware the rest of his life. Kids. I know once he gets there he will feel differently.

It's a DIS duty to take pictures of everything, including parades you don't "love".

Parades are so engaging. I am always amazed at the energy of the performers, especially in the heat.

I almost feel weird talking about it because it must seem like I'm exaggerating.

It did go well. The cardiologist is pleased with the stent result.

I don't even think a non related medical professional can convince my mom. Believe me, it was take an act of God.

Nope - not promising at all.

That combined with the number of smokers & smoke breaks that happened there (crazy for the size of the office) I knew it was not the job for me. Several times I kicked myself because it was decent money, but I know too that there have been quite a few things that I was able to attend and/or handle with Katie that I would not have been able to if I had kept that job. So, what I am trying to say is you have to go with your gut.

Thanks for sharing your job hunt story with me. I'm so glad it had a happy ending and you were able to find a job that's a good fit. That's so awesome. Flexibility means a lot.

Whew! Took me the entire day (off and on) but I did it! I read the entire report!

This is making me so excited for my Sisters-Only trip in October -- adult trips are definitely special!

Cynthia, I'm on pins and needles to see which t-shirts make it into your shopping bag!

Mary Ellen, I hope everything works out with your job. I quit mine after 11 years and couldn't find another position I liked for quite some time. Feels so strange to be a nurse who is unable to find a job! That's what happens when you specialize...

You were spot-on about insisting that Denny get that stress test... so glad he is okay!



Kathy
