Hi, my name is Steph. Some on the boards know me by my nickname, Rockin' Javamom. I guess that I will address the trip's title before I proceed any further. This trip is a complete do-over for us in many ways. We were at Disney World last October, but much of the trip is a blur. Case in point, I still have video from that trip that I haven't even taken off the video camera and edited. I will eventually. To make a really long dramatic story short, last year consisted of the following events strung together, end to end, something like this starting in August 2010: son-joined-the-military-mom-diagnosed-with-cancer-everywhere-on-the-night-before-we-left-for-Disney-got-laid-off-from-my-job-mom-died-a-week-later-was-unemployed-for-four-nervewracking-months Should I add my dog died, my son got out of prison, and the truck got hit by a train? Just kidding, but I was starting to sound like a country and western song. I really just want to leave all of that carpy stuff behind, and just concentrate on having some fun again! I am declaring this year a do-over. I can do that, right? And, I am going to start this year over with a trip to Disney World!! So without further ado, here is the crew: Me - Disney obsessed Mom, and now shiny new travel agent to boot! Yes, I went from no job to 1 and 1/2 jobs this year. This was taken last October at the California Grill: Also in that picture is our own "Phineas" pictured here with our own "Candace" Their character names say all that you need to know about these 2. They live to annoy one another. I have never been so glad for Summer to be over in my life. But oh the many joys, of starting Middle school are not to be forgotten... Last, but nevah least, is my partner in crime and hubby Mike (AKA Crashdad around here): MIA for this trip, and likely many more to come, is my Marine: That is the Reeeeee-doooo Crew! Ok so when are we heading back? September 22-26th in order to squeeze out one more trip on those APs sitting in my wallet! I don't know what the future holds, there may be more trips, maybe even a few cruises while I finish up some of my courseware for my travel agent certification. Trust me when I say that I am taking nothing for granted. Life can change quickly, near violently, in a very short space of time. If I have learned nothing else from this horrid year, it's that factoid. Carpe diem, or in this case Carpe Disney!!
