Hello again! Long time no see. Uh, yeah, right. Considering I JUST sent a PM to the mod to do whatever magic they do to finished trip reports (if you missed my scintillating report on the shocking news that the monorail does, indeed, smell funny, it's here, well, unless she moves it and it loses its URL identity), it hasn't even been 5 minutes since I was posting in the WDW report section. But it's been since 11/20/2010 (last year! a whole year! um, wait, no) (and she calls herself a Math Minor) (she doesn't really) since I was in the PRE trip section. OK so I'm Molly, the husband is Robert, the kidlet is Eamon and he's 6 right now but will be 7 for this new trip. We like Disney. December saw us at WDW for the first time ever for any of the 3 of us! Nice! We had "just the three of us" time as well as "meet up with the cousins" time, and enjoyed each thoroughly. We'll have a VERY similar trip in September, so that says something about the enjoyment. That's about all we have for this start-of-report. Right now I'm dealing with health concerns for my (half) brother...he's 28 and has been in the ICU on a ventilator for over 2 weeks now, and it's nerve-wracking! Luckily I have enough knowledge that I try to roll with the changes as they happen, and my stepmom is actually a nurse at that hospital, and she gives me the bare-bones facts by text and the talk-talk on the phone, and then we give the info to various cousins (the paternal side, as opposed to the maternal-side cousins we vacation with) and try to help them through it. Don't get me wrong, I adore my brother, but I'm able to put on a clinical face for long enough to do all that. He's in CA and I'm in WA and I desperately want to go back down there (was there a week ago) but it involves plane fare for me and the Boy, a rental car and a hotel room along with food and gas, as I have allergies and am prone to asthma, and their home and cars are smoked in by the brother in question as well as by dad and stepmom. Plus they have a dog and 3 cats that don't play well with my lungs. Oh, and they live in the redwoods, where there are spiders as big as...well I don't know, I try to not look too hard...so yeah, I stay at a hotel. Which is great, but an added expense. OMG forgive that run on paragraph! I apologize. I would fix it, but let's just call it "art", like the art of a poem. It was all one thought, so it's all one paragraph. Even though it shouldn't be. Don't hold it against me, I shall try to not do it again! I'm under stress, I'm under strain! I don't know what I was thinking. OK gotta jet for now, but I wanted to get this underway!
