Saturdays we are usually up by 9AM because that's when Darcy shows up and we have to get moving on cleaning, moving boxes and the like. I'm just kidding you! But I do hope that you get over to see the place sometime in the afternoon before Michael has to leave.

In the infamous words of High School Musical: we're all in this together! I'll take loads of photos.

We'll be there for sure! His flight isn't until 6 pm and we've got 3 things on the agenda: check out if the DLH, visit your house (including my, PIO's, and Olga's wing)- is that good PIO-lol- and get M to the airport. It's Chloe's birthday too. I bought her a Hobbit Pez collector set today. Impulse buy.

Storytellers is scheduled but I have a feeling Earl will suffice so they can have a little more DTD time.

How far is the new place from LGB?

It's pretty close. The backyard backs up almost to the corner of Bellflower and Atherton. You have to exit via Anaheim Rd in Park Estates. It's a quick trip up Clark to Willow and over to Lakewood Blvd. I would say 15-20 min tops.

Perfect. We'll chat as it gets closer but that sounds great. You are so close. Do you visit the house everyday?



I can't believe we'll be in California is 25 days! Now just to get through Vegas for Thanksgivingukkah..

I reckon we can probably get one more post of mileage out of this when you visit OUR wing.

It depends on what else is going on. We usually try to bring a load of stuff over there every day, we are bringing more and more stuff all the time, but we need to get the alarm in place. Not that anything we are bringing is really worth anything to thieves, I mean dishes and dining room sets that go for less than $200 on Craigslist really aren't a motive for B&E. The stuff we're bringing over right now only has value to us, but yeah unless we visit the park or have something else going on, we're over there at least once a day. We have to check the mail.

Caught up with the plans. I agree, that drive from Baker to OC is long and pretty much a yawn-fest. We usually stop in Barstow for some Big Boy or completely unhealthy snacks at Love's truck stop. It's the little things that make the drive better for me!

As for your Disney plans and dates ... it's a brilliant move to be in the parks the 19th and 20th since local schools don't get out for winter break until the following week.

What a great way to celebrate Chloe's birthday at Storytellers. I love the different characters that you don't see in the parks all the time.

I think you're correct. My trip report tittle may include something about OUR wing. Like the Alison's luggage wrapped roast, OUR wing will have a story of it's own.

It's so terrible. I know I sound like a big whiny baby but I like my holidays separate and observable. We're getting totally ripped off this year on many levels. Thanksgiving in Vegas, without the girls and Michael is bad enough but couple that with Hanukkah at the same time and it's no bueno. We'll be able to light the first night of Hanukkah candles on Wed (without Michael, he'll be at the FD), then no candles for any of us nights 2 and 3. The girls and Michael will be able to light on night 4 (Saturday), and then I'll be home Sunday night with Joshua but Michael will be back at the FD. I am thinking of shifting Hanukkah altogether and celebrating when we're all home for at least 5/8 nights. Waaaaahhhhhh!

I didn't think about the house being empty so you have to be careful what you move over- smart thinking. I just remember when we bought our first home, not that this is your first, but we'd drive by and sit across the street while the people still lived there and imagine and dream about what it would be like when we lived there.


Soccer, Vegas, blah.

Brenda. Thank you for being here.

There is a Big Boy? Like a Bob's Big Boy of yesteryear? Where? I loved Big Boy as a child. I agree, it's the fun snacks and music and chatter that make the drive totally doable.

I didn't realize that So Cal kids would still be in school but of course they will. That's excellent and thank you for pointing that out. That little tidbit makes me even more excited. I wonder how crowded the parks will be? The hours are really good.

Chloe loves Chip and Dale and I know we'll see them at Storyteller's. It's also a little more of a mellow character meal and I like that.

Yeah, the gardener told us about neighbors who had a whole surround sound theater system installed without a security system. They came in the next day to find it gone. I don't think anyone is going to take our Mickey dishes or dining room set, but we do need to get on that alarm system. We called one place and got a quote. We need a permit from the city. PITA!

You need a building permit to get a security system? Did the owner before you not have one? Good old CA making their money. Your home is in a beautiful and safe area, I'm sure you wont have issues but better safe than sorry.

Our friends went to Wyoming today and for a $10 tree permit, they cut us this gorgeous and imperfect tree. Can't wait for lights Tuesday when Michael is home. I scored some super cute Disney ornaments from Hallmark at 75% off last year. I'll post those tomorrow but for now, the biggest Hanukkah bush around.

Beautiful tree. Look forward to seeing the version with the decorations up.
