Things were so hectic last year that we did not make it to our beloved Disney. I could barely look at a commercial without crying. After we realized that we would be paying for my son's college out of pocket we had to cancel our trip. On top of this, we were dealing with health issues with my both of my parents.

Fortunately, things are looking up and my DH said to me "you better start planning for August" So.... here I am, back home and ready for some serious cha cha changgginnggg with my favorite changlings. So....What did I miss while I was gone??? Who is our current queen?

So glad to be back.
So happy to see you here! Sorry to hear about the parental issues, but I am so glad that you are going to Disney in August! Can't wait to hear about your trip!

Hannah I had just been thinking of you recently!!! The Glass Menagerie is on Broadway and it reminded me of you because of the blue roses. Congrats on your engagement. That is wonderful!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I canceled all of my ADRs today for our canceled trip next week I am so bummed. I am really looking forward to next year, though! I need to choose a month already. It looks like I am going to have a hard time though because it seems state testing it spread through the entire month. I have to write in to school and have them give me the exact dates so I can start planning.

I know right Sheila? He is all like "I work hard and deserve BWI and CL", and it is really hard to argue with that. But I am thinking ahead too, and would love to have a little cushion already there for our next trip.

DH prefers deluxe and CL too....but, he is not one to argue with savings. However, I would just be thinking he was miserable the whole time....well, not miserable but thinking about where we "should" be staying....

I just keep thinking about the fact that we need a new living room set, we want to redo the playroom. DD9 wants her room redone....

It's a $3000+ difference between GF SL and the values....

A lot of this stuff we want to do can be done with that $3k!!!!

I even thought about not going at all... but! I can't do that to the kids (or me)....I honestly never thought we would be making annual visits like we have been since 2009....I feel so blessed but like.....we've spent about $25k-$30k on Disney over that timeframe?!?!? Is that normal?

But even if it was not Disney, I am sure your family would be spending $$$ on family vacations somewhere right?? Your family just happens to like Disney....very much....much like mine....and all our RC families!

It's funny, I left my house and it is now freezing!!! Literally, frost on my windshield...and I thought of how nice Florida is....

I asked the kids...would you rather have a new living room set, or a big fancy trip to Disney??? They said Trip TO DISNEY!!! They pointed, out...the couch looks a mess in spots, but we can still sit on it. Just throw a blanket over it they said....

And then...I got a text from DH saying "G. Flo is sounding so good right now. Need a vaca"

It's a sign. No changes.

Yes, you can do a lot with that $3, but the memories you will make at WDW will be worth so much more than that.

Those are some smart kids, that were raised the right way. As long as the couch still supports weight, go to WDW.

I bet your DH would agree to me that you were talking crazy. Then again, I would just love to stay at the GF one day.

Ugh, I am not looking forward to this morning. My friend texted me late last night, and said that she has to take her 16 year old to a doctor's appt this morning at 10:30. We'll have 7 -8 kids, 4 of which are infants.
