    Hello there!

    I've been considering it, and while I love to write I'm thinking it might be nice to do my TR live this time! And if you know Bill O'Reilly, you'll know exactly where the title of this TR came from....

    That being said, I want to start gathering steam, so I'm starting the TR about a week early! I can get out my plans and plan a little better to go live in the future. Plus I'm always on the TR boards anyway, so why not plant myself for a longer stay?

    [​IMG]

    First off, dates: 9/15 to 9/21 (9 days from right now!!)
    Who's going?: Me and my Ma for four nights, me alone for two
    And just where are we staying?: ASSPorts on 9/15, YC from 9/16 to 9/19, and then [EDIT] I managed to have a kind soul rent me points so I'll be staying at OKW for the first time from 9/19 to 9/21!! [/end edit]

    Who am I?

    I'm in my mid-30s and work in a major corporation in a major city, in a majorly busy job. Yep, getting REAL personal here. I just recently lost 11% of my body weight by eating right and working out; I am currently working my butt off to lose a little tiny bit more weight so that I can eat Dole Whips every day (since I haven't had one yet).

    And I'm going with my mom, Ma:

    Yay.

    Favorite rides?:

    and

    ooh, and

    [​IMG]

    but especially

    [​IMG]

    I'm thinking I will try to do a live report, and then come home and fill in all the blanks. I like to go back and read my other TRs, so it would be the perfect opportunity to slide some new pictures and stories in, especially since I won't have a computer at WDW - only a phone!

    Feel free to join me; I guarantee I'm going to ramble to myself whether you do or not. :lmao:

    8 days for me and I'm back at WDW! Have my photobucket account now linked to my phone, and my phone will upload any new pics that I designate directly to my new live TR album and then resize them for easy posting.

    Packing goes into full swing this weekend; I'll be doing all my trip laundry since work will be very hectic next week. I had the audacity to take a full week off during a quarter close month, so I have to be COMPLETELY cleaned up on work since others will be taking on my ever-growing workload while I'm gone!

    Ma and I text or email daily with reminders that our trip is in the single digits! I want to do online check in for our ASSports stay, but I can't find the reservation number. :( I may call Disney when I get home today and get all three numbers.

    So far, no dice on renting points but I'm ok either way. I did change my mind far too much - there was actually someone willing to rent to me two weeks ago and I balked at the possibility of a hurricane. Now I'm kicking myself. :crazy2:

    "We'll do it live" reminds me of Howard Stern. Bill O'Reilly's voice saying that is a drop they use on his station.......

    Does Bill say that on his show a lot?

    Ha, actually Bill FREAKED out on one of his shows when the teleprompter didn't work, just LOST it, and went on a rant. It's hilarious, but it's also a very "adult" rant.

    Wow, only five sleeps until departure day! I am doing some last minute purchases; tomorrow I get my hair cut and have some sewing to do (hoping to hem a dress to make it comfortable for the parks, and I want to sew some shorts up so that the leg quits curling under). Thursday is a work picnic, so that will probably go late. And most likely, I'll be working late on Friday to get myself in a position to leave for a week. So this week is accounted for!

    I have secured my ride to the airport and that same friend is also going to check on my cat for me while I'm gone. Neighbors are slated to watch my place and also check on the cat from time to time (which is nice, because there are so many different schedules in my building so I don't have to worry about it going unwatched). So far, I'm in a good position! Today at work, I heard some of my colleagues discussing the fact that one of them was running a 100 degree fever. I immediately went for the hand sanitizer. I would have to smack someone who got me sick at this late hour!!!

    I'm on the plane! Posting an airport picture, been very smooth so far except I had a reaction to some medicine i was given and I'm BRIGHT RED. ugh, doctor called in a new prescription though, so I'll be picking that up down in Florida!

    [​IMG]

    Uneventful ride to Orlando! Flight attendant was a RIOT, we were in stitches.

    [​IMG]

    We spotted at the character warehouse on the way to all stars from the airport and got some cheap pins to trade at the parks. Then we were off to the room.

    [​IMG]

    And now we're checked in and sitting at our favorite place. :)

    Have a moment to sit before sleep, so I figured I'd update a bit.

    Still having a bit of residual reaction to this stupid medicine, but getting better!

    After chik-fil-a, mom and i ram to target for a few things. Next up? Epcot! We got super lost from the gps messing up. It was very frustrating.

    [​IMG]

    Beautiful night!! But Epcot was packed. No one was on the rides though - except for soarin and maelstrom. Yes, seriously.

    First ride?

    [​IMG]

    it was a walk on!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then off to Mexico and another favorite.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next up was illuminations. This is pretty much the only reason we went to Epcot at all tonight. We don't necessarily have another night scheduled to see it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We walked out of the park. I stopped to certify that guest relations was where my Monday segway tour started, and then we headed out. Now? Bedtime! See ya tomorrow!
