    The whole packing surprises thing went over so well, I'm going to recreate it on my September trip, just with more DS oriented stuff.:thumbsup2

    I may have gotten a little corny.

    Possibly.

    Okay, maybe a lot. :lmao:

    I'm a little late to the party, but wanted to pop in to say that I am GIDDY for the both of you!

    I know how much fun those "girls trips" can be, especially with DISfriends, who are just as hyped up on the Disney kool-aid as you are! I can't wait to hear all about it!!

    There is no late, my dear. And if it is, it's fashionable! :thumbsup2

    We had a great time. I can't wait to write all about it.

    Love the comment about the Disney kool-aid. :lmao:

    Thanks for joining us! When last I spoke with our darling Tink, she was planning an update. So I'm "patiently" waiting for her to do that. :lmao: She knows how much I'm dying to write more, so hopefully, it'll be soon. :thumbsup2

    Ok, business first. I'm going to do some replies here and respond to what TK wrote with some of my own observations. Then I'm going to let TK have at it for the next chapter and I'll take the one after that. Unfortunately, Life has made a huge appearance over the past two weeks. Last week I had MAJOR car issues (read: EXPENSIVE) with Lola. This past weekend it was Engagement Party Madness for my brother and sister-in-law-to-be and right now I'm dealing with some unexpected medical issues with one of my furry babies. I'm literally sick with worry. I'm hoping to get to the vet with her today. Hoping nothing is terribly wrong.

    However, I don't want to hold up this TR either. So, without further ado, see my replies/additions to TK's LOVERLY chapter below...

    Early for TK, perhaps. LOL I felt like I was right on time. It was what, 5 a.m.?

    ::crickets::

    Intelligent life is debatable. I'd slept pretty well, but given how late we were up discussing...well...everything under the sun, I was still tired. But excited. And as we all know, once you're up on Disney morning there's no going back to sleep.

    You know, I'm going to stop right here and say, in defense of women worldwide, we were both up, showered, dressed, packed and ready to go out the door in 55 minutes. Women high maintenance? Pssht.

    The boy had a one track mind. LOL

    Cue Auntie Tink melting inside.

    When she says tractor, people, she means a FARM tractor not a semi or anything like that. It was just chugging along at about 3mph.

    Ahh. The joys of traveling solo. Many of which I shared with TK on this trip.

    I WAS happy. Like, 5-year-old happy. Seriously. I still have two of the pops.

    Honestly, I think I temporarily lost that strainer between my brain and my mouth. I just out and answered. Ha!

    Kitty Kat had one too. Perhaps once all of my pictures are loaded I'll share that with you. I have a very good idea about how I'm going to share "head only" shots of TK, sans the head.

    And seriously? I might be smiling like an idiot but boy do I look tired. I'm just realizing this now. My eyes in particular. Ick.


    Fun fact for those of you flying SW and checking in online or otherwise - if you get boarding number A-16, you will likely be the first person to board the plane. In the past 4 flights I've been on, they don't distribute numbers A-1 through A-15. Not sure why. So, this time around I was A-17 and the second person on the plane. Score!

    Don't listen to her. The woman is a WAR card shark.

    Card. Shark.

    And no lie. The first game of WAR lasted for almost 2 hours.


    I don't know. Did I win? I didn't write that down. I didn't think I did. I think you dominated all of the games we played. Until later...when I started using the power of the elements. LOL Just call me STORM.

    We smelled it through the wrapper before we even opened it. I about DIED when she pulled this out. GOOD MILK CHOCOLATE? If this were an alternate reality whereby TK was TK with said candy and I was Jack Sparrow, I'd marry her.

    Oh, you mean like when you had, like 100 points in the first hand and I was already negative?! LOL

    Smell it! Feel it! Seriously. This time around, it was more about FEELING it.

    Welcome back, Tink!

    Sorry about your car!

    I hope your furry friend is ok. Is it a dog or a cat? Or some other animal? I love my little puppy!! I hope your furry friend is ok!


    I love all of your comments. The comment about the tractor cracked me up. It didn't occur to me that someone might actually be confused by that. I guess that is what I get for being from MS! When she said tractor, I defintely pictured the big huge wheels and going very, very slow.

    Chocolate and TK...:lmao:

    Awesome...Glad you are back and can't wait for more!! :)

    Tink I hope your kitty is ok. :hug:

    I too thought farm tractor. We get stuck behind them too in my neck of the woods. My dd thinks it is great when we get stuck behind them. She loves to look at them.

    So sorry about all the stress! Car's are just a pain in the rear end, you can never win with them.

    Hope your baby is going to be okay! I'll be thinking good thoughts for you. :hug:

    I detest cars at this point. Let's go back to when we all used to ride around on horses.

    Thanks. I really wanted to write a full-on chapter but unfortunately I don't really have the time to commit to properly write it today. But, as long as things are ok at the vet's, things will hopefully begin to quiet down.

    TK's area is more rural than mine is (though not by too much) and I was telling the story to someone else and they didn't understand why the 'tractor' was going so slow. Then I realized they thought I meant 'tractor trailer' and not 'cuttin' and balin' hay kind of tractor'.

    I have two little kittehs - Isabel and Dory. They're sisters. Dory has been sick (vomiting, etc.) on and off since Friday. It's definitely worsened in the past 24 hours. Kittehs dehydrate very easily (which can be fatal). The BF is going to bring her to the vet at 4:30 (God bless him - I've been reminded so many times in the past couple of weeks how lucky I am to have him).

    I don't have kids so the girls are like my babies. I was so distraught this morning about the whole thing that I backed into my neighbor's car in the driveway. :headache: I then proceeded to have a meltdown. BF saw it happening and raced over to calm me down enough so that I could drive to the train station. Thankfully there was no damage to my neighbor's car and I have a little crack in my bumper I could care less about (in the grand scheme of things).

    Needless to say it's been a really stressful day. I'm just praying for good news.

    Aww!! I have a yorkie, Muffin. And I have no kids either...so she is like my child. :love: I can't ever get my friends with kids to understand that. I totally get your sweet kitty is like your child. I hope she is ok!

    Oh no! You backed into a car. :eek: Oh no! You poor thing! I have so done that!

    Gosh...please keep us posted... :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:

    First, I hope your baby is ok. :hug: Keep us posted when you can.

    As for the A1-A15 thing, those are reserved for the Business Select travelers (or whatever they're called), so if there aren't any, than A16 gets to be first. You must have mostly traveled "leisure" routes, b/c the flights I usually take have most of those slots filled.

    Thankfully the little bobo is going to be ok. The plant we think she ate is not poisonous and her vitals were good. She was not dehydrated either. The vet gave her an injection of a Pepcid-like medicine and sent her home with instructions for no food for the night.

    She seemed worse to me when I got home - hiding, shedding, not herself at all - and I was distraught. It wasn't an easy night, even knowing the vet said she'd be ok.

    However, this morning she was much more herself - interested in food, looking for love, sitting in her favorite window watching the birds. She got a tablespoon of food when I first got up and then I left her with another couple of tablespoons for the day. We have to give her 10mg of Pepcid for the next four days to help neutralize the acids in her belly. There will probably still be some vomiting, etc. but she is already noticeably better. So I'M noticeably better. :goodvibes

    Dude. Who felt like a total dope? :wave2:

    Awwww. I heart Skittle hugs. Thanks. :hug:

    Thanks, Jackie. I don't know how you guys with "real" kids do it!

    Seriously. Don't let her fool you. She pulled the wool right over my eyes! LOL

    Ahhhhh...I wondered if that had anything to do with it. That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for sharing that! And it's true, the routes I've traveled have been leisure routes.

    Well guys, thanks again for the well wishes and sorry for any hold-up on the TR. I've e-mailed TK and we're devising a plan for the next couple of chapters.

    Just think...soon you'll know where we stayed!!!
