Work has been absolutely crazy, I am so looking forward to the cruise. There's nothing better than an upcoming trip to help with the post trip blues.



I'm sorry work has been crazy. Are you off any part of the weekend?


I hate big creepy crawly slithering things. And of course I seem to attract them.

WOW! A tarantula AND a scorpion???? But it all equals out, cause you got to see the turtles! So so cool!

I saw you were discussing your upcoming rebooking- sometimes booking a balcony and an inside is cheaper than booking that 5 in a cabin family cabin. We would have paid about $3000 MORE for the 4 of us on our Alaska cruise if we had put us all in one cabin as opposed to booking 2 cabins. Ummm...that was easy! So anyway, make sure you check it all out. They do have historical opening day threads on here for you to check out. Here's the one for the Fantasy-

Thanks for the link. I still don't understand how two cabins can be cheaper than one but the extra space would be amazing as well as the additional bathroom.


Tarantula, scorpion, BIG cockroaches by the pier, and sea snakes. The turtles more than make up for it though. It was such a once in a lifetime thing to see. I feel very fortunate, tan, and extremely depressed being home. I put all my bikinis back in their drawer today. No bueno amiga, no bueno.

The photos through FB are better as they're larger and you can see captions.

Thanks girl! The turtles were unreal and totally unplanned. Such a great last night of vacation and magical memory.

I have definitely removed Mexico from my vacation possibilities! No creepy crawly things for me! I hate bugs and all things icky.

You'll be much happier when you move back here. No pesky cold snowy winters! Just drought!

I think the icky creepy crawlers come with anywhere that's not totally developed and jungly. We only saw one tarantula, one scorpion, one seas snake, and a handful of BIG roaches. The roaches were the worst by far.





Yes, my friend, I will be much happier when we move home. How is it I can love my life but hate its location? That's rhetorical but heavily on my mind. I have to get out of here! We have to get out of here! I am so 110% over Utah. I want to live close to Disneyland and close to the beach again.
I think 20 years is enough time to evaluate and conclude.

I forgot to reply to your question, yes, thankfully I have today and tomorrow off. It's been heavenly.

All those horrible bugs I love tropical areas but those bugs are just aweful.

You are so sweet! I'm hoping you'll like what I got you

Does Joshua like t-shirts or would he rather not get clothes? I'm going to go by the Disney store tomorrow and hope to pick up a few things. If so what size would be best?

I like everything.

He also likes anything. He's a 10-12 if it runs big or 12-14 if it runs small.




Fight update: our our bound flight, the earlier flight and the later flight both went down $95 per ticket. I'm debating on booking one of them. The earlier stresses me out as its as 11:35. The later flight is at 4:45. Decisions, decisions.....

Thanks for the shirt sizes, I didnt go yesterday, but I will be heading there for some items hopefully soon

What did you decide on the flight? What will you do if you take the later one? Have a meal with your friends? Thats a good amount of money difference. The earlier one would probably be pushing it.

I got my hands on copies of recent Navigators for our cruise if you're interested. They're in a recent thread or I can scan and email them to you. Joshua and I were pouring through them last night. I reprinted them off today. There is SO much to do. Joshua was so cute and said: mom, whatever we do will be great because you always make Disney so fun for us. Love him!

I'm having mom guilt over leaving the girls.

I haven't decided. It seems like a no brainer however it's not. I love our 12:35 flight time home. 11:35 seems like we'd be pushing it though everyone seems sure we'd be fine. 4:30 seems late. I haven't a clue if our friends will be around so its not wise to count on them. I'd hate to sit at the airport for hours. We could spend the day in Miami I suppose but I'm sure we'd spend a Ron with taxis, food, etc......
