    Hello there! :wave:

    As many of you know, I'm just finishing up a TR from a trip this February. I wasn't sure if I should do a PTR for our next trip but I think I must be addicted because I'm a little sad that my TR is over. I like seeing my readers everyday. :) For those of you that are new to my PTR's and TR's, let me explain the title of this PTR. You see, I planned our Feb 2008 trip for a year. I did everything I was supposed to do when I was supposed to do it, plus some. I wanted to get everything we wanted to get as far as resort, ADR's, etc. I started wiping down the shopping carts with Purell 30 days ahead of our trip to make sure we didn't get sick. I drank Airborn every day and made sure DH drank it too. DS is too young so I just made sure no other kids breathed in his face and that he practiced good hand washing skills. Then the unthinkable happened. I got sick for OUR ENTIRE TRIP!!! Of course, I soldiered on trying desperately not to ruin DS and DH's good time, but I felt HORRIBLE. To make a loooong story short, (you can read the long version in my TR by clicking here. ), my awesome DH told me to book another trip in the near future with the money we saved from this trip. (It's funny how little you want to shop when you're sick! Thus, saving a LOT of money) Of course this isn't enough money to cover the entire trip, but it's a REALLY good start. :thumbsup2 So anyway, that's why this trip is called "The Great Make Up Trip of 2008". Let's meet the cast of characters............

    DW(me)~ I'll be 35 on the 31st. (not this Monday but next Monday) I'm an "at-home-mom" to a wonderful little 4 year old DS. As of last Saturday I have officially and proudly gained the title of "Soccer Mom". I'm having a blast raising my son and I'm trying to come to terms with the fact that he will be starting school this August. I am also the Director of Programing for our local film group. We are a network of individuals who love all aspects of filmmaking and try to help each other achieve our goals. I really love being involved in this group. Sometimes I even get to do a little acting which I absolutely love to do. I am also a Disney nut! I went to Disney for the first time in 1984 with my family. Later, I took DH in 1997 for his first trip because I thought it was a disgrace that he had never been. I think every kid should get to go at least once. :thumbsup2 I never in a million years thought that I'd become this obsessed with Disney. It is just completely hopeless by this time. There's no going back. I'm a coo-coo crazy, Disney Lovin' Soccer Mom who traded in her Infiniti G35 for a Yukon. But I'm lovin' every minute of it. :lovestruc

    DH (37) He's a man's man....whatever that means. :lmao: He likes to fish, work in the yard, BBQ, watch football, play sports with me and DS in the backyard. He is a hard worker and we are very proud of him. Last year he was the type of guy who would never admit to the real world that he had a good time at Disney World. This year, he's pretty darn close to being a nut like me. ;)

    DS (4) Our pride and joy. He is completely in love with Car's and Toy Story 1 & 2. On our trip in 2007 he was affraid of every character and wouldn't ride any rides. To top it off, we got him on Goofy's Barnstormer and that pretty much sealed the deal as far as him not getting on another ride the entire trip.:sad2: After a year of talking about the last trip, watching ride video's on you tube, and buying him his own "kids" version of Birnbaums, he completely came out of his shell on our Feb 2008 trip. He rode rides, and even filled up his autograph book! There wasn't a character that he was too scared to meet. It was great! He has started playing soccer last weekend and is having a blast with it. In August, he will be starting pre-k

    Yay! You gave into the pressure!:banana:

    It's funny that we're both doing "make up" trips at the same time!

    Ok, I really need to stop using !'s so much. No one can be that excited all the time.;)

    I was a lurker on your last TR since I came in late, but I'll out myself here since I am joining you from the start. Your DS is too cute for me not to follow along. Keeping my fingers crossed for a healthier trip for you this time around!
