I waffled over where to start this thread because I know I'll end up telling tales and posting pictures of our various earlier trips and possibly end up telling our last trip in it's entirety. BUT - I decided to officially claim this as a PRE-trip planner because I need something to a) motivate me to save/earn for this trip and b) something to look forward to because, aside from notable exceptions, 2013 has been the Year of Suck. At least from July on. I'll probably do official introductions in a later post as I am currently supposed to be doing something else. Like work. But for now I'll introduce the two main players in this drama: me and DH Me: AKA Sewmess (here and nearly everywhere else on the internet) AKA Ruth. If the plans go as, well, planned - I will either be turning 40 on a 2014 trip or have just turned 40. I'm trying to ignore that. I have been front line management for over 15 years in two different companies and apparently I'm good at it. I am a chunky girl who really needs to lose about 50+ pounds (another thing I hope to motivate myself for) but I really love seated/sedentary hobbies like reading and sewing. DH: AKA Cale. He doesn't have a presence on the internet except through me. He will be 45 just after a 2014 trip and just seems to be getting better with age - except for his knee. He's the person that instigated the whole Disney thing. He lived in and around Orange Co California so he grew up going to Disney Land All. The. Time. By inclination and training he's an artist, but he earns by being a client service representative at a national laboratory company. He's also an extrovert and can sometimes be perpetually "on" I'll get some pictures up and maybe do a full Favorites list soon.
