I hope you are able to find the energy you need to get everything done.
I plan on talking to my mom again and seeing exactly what they are planning on having so I can adjust whatever I need to for the day and ask her to get things I know I can eat that won't mess me up too bad.

Yes the change was POR!! I know you guys love FQ and I'd love to try there but a family of 5/6 is too big for that resort. We are excited to try it and just being able to go is going to make it fun.

Glad Allie is feeling better.

Can't figure out what your auction bag is and can't wait to see it!!

If you enjoy the Zumba so much maybe you can go ahead and do it since it's only 4 weeks. It's also just one day a week correct? I know you don't like driving at night but only you can decide if you can get through it or not.

This is awesome! And I believe it's exactly what she is looking for! I will PM you to see if there is a time she can call you - I am thinking tomorrow night will work out best for us?

Yes, work is crazy this week. There was acomputer glitch and the schedules got messed up. Next week I'm back to normal with day shifts. The department managers are getting ready for Thanksgiving and Black Friday so they're not around much.
I'm glad you were able to get so much done yesterday and that Allie's feeling better.

Thanks Liz! I love that you remember Walt talking about the Florida project - that is cool! I think that V is going to end up using LadyBeBop above - just because she needs someone who was there with in the first few years of it opening. I really appreicate your offer though.

Hopefully the computer glitch is done with and you can go back to a normal schedule.

Excited to see the new auction bag and hoping it's not something my Cousin wants.
It's OK - I appreicate the offer Ariana! I love that you have a few memories from that first trip though. That's really cool!

I hope your cousin is safe. LOL

and I think there is one of Cinderella's castle too. I don't think the park changed much from the opening until then, but then again, I'm not sure about that....
Cool - I will tell her! Thanks Tess!

All these items are stored in their basement in boxes so it's not too messy, but they cannot keep it all.

Have a wonderful day. Cannot wait to see your auction piece!
Yah - I definately need to be in the mood for it - so does everyone else. I've been pumping them up for weeks. LOL Glad it's done. I hope your clean out goes well too. I hope you have a great day as well!

Glad Alison is feeling better and good luck with all you have to do today . Quite a list!
Awww... Thanks for the shout out - I hope you love it! I keep meaning to get over there and read - Hopefully over Thanksgiving week I will have a chance, since I don't have anything on my schedule.

Still thinking about Jennifer.

Still trying to craft, but I squirreled myself when the kitten found a thrifted sheet that had fallen behind a piece of furniture. Planning that has taken me away from the things I NEED to be doing. Like Christmas Presents.

You and your weight loss is inspiring me to grab hold of myself and get back into some semblance of shape. I actually stretched this morning and I've been in a flakey good mood. Probably should go back to my 10 minutes in the morning routine.

Good luck with all your projects. Wish Josh good learning (and the girls too.)
I think the aprin for your MIL is a great idea... would she carry a bag if you made her one - or would it just be a waste of time?

Thanks for your prayers for Jennifer - I know her family is very appreciative of them.

I am very glad to have inspired your new healthy lifestyle! You can do this, I know you can!

Yes, we do love FQ - but I do understand that you need a bigger room with a bigger family. POR is a GREAT choice!

I went online last night a scoped out the holiday session classes... Still debating it - I will most likely do it though.

************************************************** ********

I was able to get a lot acccomplished in my sewing room yesterday - I was so happy.

I managed to get up there 2 hours early (thanks to Josh being home and hogging the computer... Sigh)... So, I was able to completely assemble my auction bag, applique the wallet and assemble the wallet.

Then I had to run errands for a little while...

After that - I came home and went back to work in my sewing room, where I was able to cut out my custom order for the week and get some quilting prep work done. Phew!

All of that before 4pm!

I made 16 bean soup for dinner... It was not very good. I made it with out the ham so Alli could eat it... Let's just say that it was VERY lacking. The Pillsbury flakey biscuits were the best part of the meal... Sigh.

Josh and I watched the movie "Jack Frost" last night... It always makes me cry - such a sad holiday movie.

I work at Target today... So no sewing room for me. I will resume working up there tomorrow.

I hope you all have a fantastic day today! Prayers for everyone who needs them!

Well, I'm trying to be good. And it is tough. Sticking to 2.5 cups of coffee is like torture. But I found a source for cranberry/almond/apple salads. Yum.

Well, think of all the extra time you're having in your sewing room as making up for all those times you don't have enough.

Hope your day was good!

Oh - and if your auction bag WAS Maximus, I might have had to scrounge a few dollars to put in the paypal account and bid.

You were a busy girl and got a lot done...good for you. I was able to catch up on all of my threads and do two updates to my PTR...I felt quite accomplished.

I've never seen Jack Frost. Perhaps Mark and I should rent that this weekend.

Just getting over here today. You sure were productive. I have an order that must get done this week and I have been slacking. It has been rough here.

I love the auction bag. I hope it goes for big money.

Got to keep it up because I'm so afraid if I don't I'll just give up.

We're excited to try it and see it. We honeymooned in New Orleans for a few days before going on a cruise so in a way by going to visit FQ it'll be like we're reliving it (just with 4 kids this time instead of 2 very good friends who met us there. ) hummm maybe I can get them to join us in WDW for a few days.

Good for you! Enjoy it if you do!

Yeah for getting so much done. Hope today's shift went fast.

I've managed to get myself down to 1 cup of coffee/day... Then on Sundays (but sometimes, I do Saturday instead) - I allow myself 2 cups.

That salad sounds delicious!

Yay! I saw that Kathy! I stopped by there this morning.

Yah - Jack Frost is a very sad movie... Makes me cry all the time. It is not one of my favorite movies due to that.

Yes - FQ is just beautiful... I just love being there. However, when we were there in Aug - I didn't feel like we were able to enjoy it as much as we had the previous trip... It was just too hot to spend any more time than necessary outside - which makes me sad. We really did hop from building to building, staying in the air as much as possible.

You will do great on Thanksgiving - I just know it.


************************************************** ********

First off... I want to apologize... This week has been so crazy with Josh home for classes. I am slowly falling WAAAAAY behind on TRs/PTRs I am following. I want you all to know I will be catching up - but not until after the weekend. I will try to do some catching up later this morning from the laptop. As it is, I have been getting up at 4:30 every morning... I have to work out at 6am, so Josh can be on here by 6:45. So, my only real computer time is from 4:30 to 6... It's been a bit crazy!

And this isn't the end of it... His class is done on Saturday evening... Then he was just approved for a MUCH longer and more intensive course... From Dec 7-21st... Here at home... Including the weekends. So, this is just the beginning for a while. It's OK - I LOVE having him home with me during the day - but I don't like sharing the computer. LOL

Thankfully - his work is paying for all these courses... and he is being paid his salary. Plus, when it's all over - he'll have 6 days of comp time, as well. I was hoping that would mean a nice little vacation for our Anniversary - but since he will be taking a class during that time... Again, our Anniversary will be sidelined. It's OK really... I am used to it. ONce the girls go off to college - maybe then we will be able to make up for lost time?

I had a good day at work yesterday... Things are really in high gear as the store preps for Black Friday. I was busy all day - and that was good.

************************************************** ********

I wanted to do a little Thanksgiving update...

The last few years, we have had it here. Some of Josh's family has moved home now, we offered to host it here again - however - we had to put a limit on the people, because we do have a small house - which isn't very condusive to entertaining. Our limit was 10 people. Sooo... Upon Josh's dad announcing it to the family - MANY more people wanted to do Thanksgiving - almost double than what we could fit. So, Josh's dad decided to do it at a restaurant... SIGH... Soooo NOT happy with this idea - but whatever. So, we are eating Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant.. Which means NO leftovers... I LOVE Thanksgiving leftovers... And even worse - it means NO cranberries that Josh makes. However, we are all doing to his dad's hotel afterwards - which we are bringing Josh's home made pie - so, at least we will have something good.

Now, at first - I was really upset about this... But the more I think about it - the more I am OK with it. First off... I won't be snacking on appetizers all day. Secondly, I won't be eating wonderful Thanksgiving leftovers all next week. Thirdly - I think if I work on Josh enough - I can get him to make a triple batch of his cranberries just for us.

So, from a healthy goal stand point - I think I should be able to sail through Thanksgiving with out a problem.

************************************************** ********

I don't have any bags scheduled in my sewing room next week. So, I plan to take the week to finish up the one SSP and also the stockings. I also plan to work on my SIL's Christmas gift... I hope to get ALL of it DONE. It's really been bothering me that I haven't finished all of these projects yet.

I wish I had something real and concrete to update about our trip - but I do not. Other than the quest for a healthier me... And my continued savings goals - right now, we are kind of at a stand still until BFF gets back to me about our ADRs. I do need to get on her about it, but I am having a hard time doing that with other things going on in her life... However, it may be a good distraction for her?

OK - I need to get going on my day... I have to be out of here in an hour.

Sending prayers out to all who need them. Have a wonderful day everyone!

I wanted to thank you for the heads up on the $10 Target coupon in last Sunday's paper. I don't normally open all the sale flyers and never would have found that coupon if you hadn't mentioned it. I got the Target red card so I can save 5% on my Disney gift certificates, too. Joining the Dis forum has saved me some money.

Good Luck on today's auction items!!! is it today?
boooooooooo on the restaurant... leftovers is tradition. turkey is good for you (not the way i make it) and healthy sides!!!

i would love to hire someone to prepare the bird for me. i despise doing it. usually takes a bottle of wine for me to get through the whole thing!


you don't have to work on Thanksgiving do you?

Santa Mickey UPB set

I love how festive this bag turned out!

This is not my original idea for this auction... Originally - I was planning something a bit more traditional. At the last minute, I remembered the interior fabric I had purchased this fall - so I wanted to do something to incorporate that. Victoria picked all of the fabrics for this bag (except for the interior) and told me how she wanted me to use them. I have to say that I totally agree with her decisions and I think she did great!

Ohhh. Love the auction bag. Mickey is having so much fun. I am on my mobile and thought the sled was polka dot fabric but when I opened the picture I saw it was snow. Perfect. I hope someone with a trip coming up will snap this one up. It would make a great early Christmas gift.

I hope you can get some direction on your ADRs soon. I know how they dictate the schedule for the trip and make it seem more real. You won't be able to tell us your ADR day but is it coming up very soon? I am guessing sometime in February.

The fabric you used on the inside I have. I'm making it into a strap to go over my camera strap. Which I need to get on.

Your latest auction bag turned out great. When I first looked at it, I thought Mickey was on a surfboard not a sled. The lining really looks good with the outside.
My day's been interesting so far. My daughter called from work to tell me she was on her way home. She spilled a can of red pop on her clothes. Luckly, I have a heavy duty cycle on the washer. I think I got it out. Today's my last late day for a while. It should be busy.
