Hey there! I'm Molly, with a traveling-for-work husband Robert, and our 8 year old Eamon. Just last night it was decided (really, insisted upon by DH, who always wants us to have super-tremendous-fun when he's traveling) that the kidlet and I will be heading to Anaheim for a brief Disneyland visit next weekend! We have Deluxe APs, so we're blocked out on Saturday, but that's OK because our paid-for-with-Miles trip from Seattle will take almost 9 hours. 3 separate flights. We'll get in at nearly 9pm. Using "frequent-stayer" points or nights or whatever you want to call it, we've got a room booked at Best Western Park Place Inn. This will be THE closest we've ever stayed to the esplanade, and I'm including the Grand in that, since we had the second furthest-away room in that hotel. I'm pretty excited about leaving the hotel, jumping across the street, and just pretty much being there! We'll have the 15th and part of the 16th. Robert is picking us up and then we're going elsewhere, but it's possible we'll have time to grab a ride on something and have lunch with Robert that day. He'll feel like a local, doing that. We're planning on a trip the week before and including Gay Days this Fall, so we have to decide if E&I should just focus on the 'land this time, or go experience DCA without Robert. DH is really very kind and generous, and even though he's very excited to see Carsland, really won't mind if we see it first. Decisions decisions! Now I need to have a crash course on the things that have changed since February. ************************* This is where I start the July report. Brief discussion of Phoenix, a return to Anaheim, and minor league baseball. Meeting Merida. More report! And more. More! Junkyard Jamboree injures the wee E. Major digression as my MIL's health goes to pieces. Continuing the July report. Finished! More talk about varied concerns surrounding and about MIL and our plans with and for her that might have to be changed. Not sure if I'll finish the index...sorry! And now we're also going to be talking about our next trip starting in late September!
