    Do you ever nap in the parks?

    Actually, this was something I would NEVER have considered in the past (other than inadvertently falling asleep in a quiet ride like COP or HOP) because my Disney time is so precious and valuable..... but the new(ish) hub grass area is great for a quick bit of shut-eye in the middle of the day...

    MK - Skip-able Rides?

    I didn't see you mention date of travels, but FWIW the Liberty Belle riverboat is out of service until at least the end of June..... the "unofficial" word is that they hope to have it up and running by July 4th............P

    Best place for taking a break in each park

    They have been using the boarding area for Liberty Belle for a water station lately. It was a great place to get a cold drink and sit in the shade for a bit when I was there Mother's Day weekend.......P

    Creative Ways to Pay for Disney Vacation

    Here is a link to a thread I started a few years ago when I was trying to earn some extra money for a special event at Disneyland. I got some great helpful suggestions/discussions! Hope this helps.....P https://www.disboards.com/threads/how-to-earn-find-160.3525896/

    Anyone a lunch packer?

    Look for stuff that is shelf stable so you don't have to worry about packing ice or keeping things cool..... I've found shelf stable hummus snack packs (with crackers), shelf stable meat products (kind of like Slim Jim, but not so gross and salty), those chicken salad kits you were mentioning...

    AP renewal question

    Hi all.... I purchased my first AP last year when my DD was accepted for a Disney Professional Internship. She will soon be a regular full-time employee (WAHOOO!) and it is time to potentially renew my AP. I did get an email with a renewal discount if I renew before the expiration date. But...

    January 2018 Weight Loss Challenge

    Hey friends! If anyone still remembers me, I'm here to say hello! I was a very active participant in the weight loss challenges for nearly 10 years, until life got very busy last spring and I just totally fell away from participating here. But I have missed the friendship and support! I am...

    Discover the Wild (and Healthy) Side!! – WISH May Lifestyle/Weight Challenge

    OH my gosh.... this is such a "loaded" issue! You will certainly get folks who state that talking to your kids about their food choices can lead to eating disorders and such. Probably not an untruth, but also not the WHOLE story. But it is a tricky conversation to have and strike just the...

    Discover the Wild (and Healthy) Side!! – WISH May Lifestyle/Weight Challenge

    I love the way you laid these out! Beautiful and informative! DS got some good grades on his finals... even in English, his weakest subject. DD graduates in 9 days with HONORS! She is set up for her Disney Professional Internship for the next 7 months, and I predict she is going to do GREAT...

    A few "basic" questions about visiting my DD during her Disney Professional Internship.

    She will have a car, but I don't want to have to depend on her for a ride to the airport. I want her to be able to get settled in to her new apartment and all without worrying about when she needs to drive me to the airport. She is actually required to have a car for the DPI. I do...

    A few "basic" questions about visiting my DD during her Disney Professional Internship.

    Thanks all for the helpful information! DD has chosen to live in Disney PI housing for the ease of it. We live in New England and trying to get to Orlando and search for housing in the VERY limited time that she has between graduation and the start of her internship was out of the question...

    best place to sell used or NWT clothing?

    I have JUST started selling (or attempting to sell) on Poshmark. I did a ton of reading/research before jumping in. I honestly would like to get some money for clothes I no longer wear AND I have a great eye for a deal at the thrift stores and would love to make some extra cash flipping these...

    A few "basic" questions about visiting my DD during her Disney Professional Internship.

    Hey all.... I'm certain these have been asked a zillion times, but I cannot find the answers, so bear with me while I re-ask. DD starts her DPI in June. I am super stoked about this for her AND because it means I have an excuse to multiple Disney visits this year! Here are my primary...

    First of all, I'm going to be a "Negative Nelly" and comment on how much I DISLIKE Dinoland! The first time I saw it I thought that perhaps we had accidentally wandered off Disney property to one of those cheapo pop-up "theme-park-wannabe" things! YUCK! Hot, loud, cheap, and ugly. I know...

    Good morning all! Happy SATURDAY! Rainy and cold here, but it is still a day without any "work" scheduled (paying work that is!), DS has moved home for the summer, the birds are singing, and I'm drinking coffee.... so all is good! NOT reporting in a weight..... because my scales are...

    Good morning friends and HAPPY Friday! I'll save the QOTD until later when I have more time to answer. Just want to report my SCALE FRUSTRATION! I hopped on at o'dark thirty this morning, as usual, and got a GREAT number! So great, in fact, that I knew it was an error. I stepped off and on...

    Balance?? What's that??!!:rolleyes1 Nope, no way, no how! Too much work, too much stress (about money, hence the work!), too much trying to be a "people-pleaser" both at work and at home. Too much food control but not enough exercise. The work issues will settle down a bit in a few years...

    I do love woo-hoo Wednesdays.... it is the "NO EXCUSES" time to celebrate things like non-scale victories! But I admit that sometimes I struggle to celebrate something that really pertains to ME, as opposed to my kids. LOVE, love, love my kids, but I think I need to celebrate ME once in a...
