Ok, so here goes, my first PTR. I hope someone will read this or I will feel like I am talking to myself and no one is listening. Oh wait, I talk to my self daily, lol, Oh well. As for the title, yes, how many more have to die before I can get to the World. Well at the rate we are going, at least one more, lol. This year has been a rough year for me in terms of losing loved ones, and not just family loved ones, but the ones that I have known since I was 3, and have grown up with and could never imagine my life without them. Since March we have lost 4 friends and family members and in September, we said goodbye to my best friend's husband. It was an expected event, but one that still caught us all off guard. And now, my BFF's daughter is fighting bone cancer and is in a fight for her life. So, yes, I need a trip to Disney, just to forget about reality a little bit. We originally planned on heading to Disney December 21 to December 27, and after some serious thought and discussion, we moved it up to December 10 to 15 for Free Dining. Soo, we will be in WDW December 10 to December 15 staying at Port Orleans Riverside. So now that I have totally depressed and frightened off any potential readers, let me introduce this cast of characters: First off is Me: Mommy, Mom, Babycakes, or just Amy. SAHM, Disney planner extraordinaire! Originally from Jersey, transplanted to Tx in 2003. Then there is DH: Daddy, Daddy Adrian, Leppi, or just plain old Adrian. System Admin for a major cosmetics company as a contractor. Loves my kids like his own, and a Disney enthusiast, loves going, just wants to know where to go and how to get there. Let's me plan it all! Next up in the crazy cast of characters is.... DD:16. She probably will not make an appearance as she lives in NJ with her dad, and doesn't like me right now, but she is a Disney princess, having grown up with every thing Disney DS12: the love of my life and my biggest challenge, lol. Love my boy, but man he is trying my patience. He may or may not live to see 13 and lastly, DD10: my little bit of Sunshine, my Button, my Little Bit. Loves everything Disney, including helping mommy plan. In 2009, I took hubby and the kids to Disney for the first time. I had been throughout my life, maybe 5 or 6 times, the last time was in 1991, before I started working at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind in St,. Augustine. It took us 22 hours to get there because LB puked majority of the way, and we took hubby's car which is a stick and I do not know how to drive. The poor guy never got a break, lol. The best part of the whole trip was videoing my kids seeing the castle for the very first time. I cried, my daughter was speechless, and my son, asked: " Is that it????" I wanted to smack him, lol.
