    WOW.. A WDW DO-OVER....THE BEST / THE WORST OF BOTH (ALL) WORLDS
    Hello Everyone.. Welcome to a "Vacation DO-OVER".
    Some of you know me and of my “Hidden Mickey PTR”...but what happened to the TR ??:confused3

    IT NEVER HAPPENED.
    Kind of like my June WDW Vacation. OH... I WAS THERE.. Had there BEEN a TR.. It would have been Titled.. “ FLOODS, FEASTS, MECHANICAL FAILURE:sad2: AND FEVER’S or something like that.
    It was a disaster that I will hit the Highlights with in a bit.
    Quite honestly... had I written a “Hidden Mickey TR” you just might have canceled your vacations, tore up your tickets.. And burned your DVC Membership...
    So It was NEVER WRITTEN. A TR like that would do more Damage to Disney than "Winnie the Pooh" beating up a Kid. :sad2:

    So before I proceed with the TR’s... (yes I said TR’s.. I am going to do a Combined TR, hitting the highlights from our June Vacation.. And our “DO-OVER in July)..... I must commence with all the formalities and introductions.. And yes.. For the Faithful RE-Introductions.

    Lets go from Prettiest to ... Uh......

    Lets just start with Sarabeth... a.k.a. “Mini Me” as they call her at Church. And just so you know.. GOD DOES CLONING... she is my Twin, just many many years younger. And also somewhat scary :scared: ... she acts like my Mom. I do not believe in Re-Incarnation... but if GOD did do that... MOM IS BACK...

    Anyway... as I digress here...

    [​IMG]
    Sara is Nine But will turn 10 in a few short days .. HOWEVER.. That is just her biological age..
    Do not let the Cute smile and Blue eyes lead you a stray.. She has ATTITUDE and knows how to THROW IT DOWN..Starting to worry about fashion, clothing , hair and all that stuff ...Loves to sing and has yet to turn down a Microphone ( wonder where she gets it from :rolleyes1 ) So I am guessing that she is 10 going on 15.. SOMEBODY HELP ME !!!!


    Next in line to the Throne ( hey... he is a boy YKWIM ;) )... is Joshua.

    [​IMG]
    My Baby Boy just turned 14 a few days ago.. He has Autism.. But is High Functioning.So there are days he acts like he is 12... and others that he acts like he is 5.
    He may not be able to recite the “Preamble” or his Multiplication Tables... but he KNOWS HIS TRAINS. Classes, and wheel configuration, manufacturer.. You name it. So if you are wondering if we have a “Model Train Collection”.. Let me put it to you this way... YOU HAVE NO IDEA...
    And the collection keeps growing because of....



    This Guy....


    [​IMG]

    Yup.. that's Him looking all innocent there on the left. My husband of nearly 22 years... Scott. He began collecting trains because Joshua was so fascinated with them.( That's his story and he's sticking to it) But since Scott has “Addiction Problems”( not drug or Alcohol Related.. Those would be cheaper :lmao: )After he bought his first 3 trains... much like trying to eat “JUST ONE LAYS POTATO CHIP”... he could not stop. Then he needed a “layout” to run them on.. And .....I had better stop here .. This is a Trip Report.. Right? Right !!
    Now where was I .. Oh yes.. Introductions.....
    Scott started his own company AND works out of the house which is good and bad. Saves on Gas, office space costs and commute time. If I need help with something... he is just a “buzz on the intercom” away. But since I am a stay at home Mom... guess who helps answer the phones, pays the bills, Gets tax information together and keeps it together, does the typing.....



    That would be Me...

    Due to technical difficulties no photo available at this time:rotfl2:






    O.K. Maybe a small one
    [​IMG]


    And do I get paid.... NO !!!!.. but I get rewarded with trips to Disney..:woohoo: :woohoo: While it is still slave wages... It MAKES ME HAPPY.:banana:
    My Other NO PAYING JOBS include Cook, Maid, Chauffeur, Teacher, Keeper of the household checkbook, Referee.. And many other jobs under the title of MOM and WIFE.:laundy: :faint:
    I also write music, Play Trombone in Church Band, and am Assistant Choir Director.
    And in my SPARE TIME... I get to “DIS”. :rotfl: :rotfl:
    Is Life Good Or what ??;)


    So there we are.. The WHOLE Disney Family...
    [​IMG]]​





    We are about to embark on an adventure together that has more twists and drops than “Space Mountain” ( Which BTW is my Favorite ride)
    This my Friend is a little TR I like to Call... "Feasts, Floods.... Do-Over's.... Frogs and Sobriety Checks"
    So Fasten your Seat Belts...” It’s gonna get Bumpy”.

    I'm all in for this one, Katt. Now, to go back and actually read it... :cool1:

    Okay, now that I've read it... I think we have lots in common, Katt. My DH has a train addiction too, but hasn't gotten around to building a layout yet. So, our basement is just full of trains in boxes. He keeps dreaming of a huge layout, but then decided this month to enroll in college to become a paramedic. Of course, he's already a computer programmer, but wants to be Jonny or Roy from Emergency! So, the layout will have to wait until after we pay for school for him.

    Anyway, great start to your TR and I can't wait to read along!

    Jodi.. Tell Deputy to do a RE-COUNT:lmao:



    Thank You Jodi.
    Jodi got nothing.. aren't you Ashmed;) You would have gotten 30 period.. but I decided to give you 20 + 20 = 40 then give 25 to the second person.. and 20 to the 3rd( focker Math at work here) either way... you came out 10 points ahead.

    Maybe I should give those to Jodi:lmao:

    :jumping1: :welcome: :jumping1:

    Thank You.. It will get wackier as we go along. Our "Do-Over" in July was some silly stuff. Glad you chose to take a read. And I am VERY HAPPY You are here.
    Hmmm ..."Froglover".. I see why maybe I peaked your interest :rotfl2:

    Nah... I got nabbed LAST MONTH...(and I don't drink)
    So you'll have to wait till I get to the "July Do-Over"
