    Ahh, I was wondering why you always rent a car to go to Disney. Makes sense now. I had to do the same thing last spring. It was either put four grand into my car with well over a hundred thousand mies or suck it up and have a car payment again. Went with the later, but got a good deal at carmax

    Before I do a couple quick replies, just wanted to tell everybody...

    I hope you all are able to enjoy the day with family and friends and lots of PIE!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Unfortunately, with my budget being what it is, there's just no room for a car payment. So I'm stuck with trying to save up for a year or so, then getting the best use car I can find. Which means spending taking all the money I usually pour into vacationing, and instead save-save-saving!

    I'm so behind on TRs, too! Sadly, I can barely keep up with my own, much less other peoples! I'm very glad you're here, though!

    Aw, such a bummer that the trip is shifting to fewer, but maybe that's actually a good thing. Fewer opinions to satisfy. I'm sure it will still be a really great time for those who do go!

    Yeah, I was nervous about hosting such a large group, so I'm only mildly disappointed. But Dorothea was my fellow single girl and was gonna be my trip buddy, so that that's the bummer there!

    I did! And you too, Mo!

    I am not caught up. At all. I can barely keep up with my own threads anymore, much less anybody else's. This No-DisBoards-at-Work stuff has turned me into a HORRIBLE Dis-friend!

    At least your falling behind means I haven't fallen so far behind reading this as I thought!!!! :teeth:

    Also, I really have no room to talk. I don't even know the last time I logged in to update my own PTR!!! 20 days to go....might want to go over there and stir up some interest!!

    That medal is AWESOME! Wish I were going. Speaking of which, was the friend who was going to do the 5K with you able to cancel and get a refund for the 5K or is that just lost money? I don't know how runDis handles such things.

    {knock, knock} anybody home?? There are cobwebs growing on your PTR!

    Come back Billie, come back!

    Meanwhile, back in Colorado I have started a new TR ( shameless plug) and we need to discuss DISmeet deets. My DD and I are going to be landing earlier on 2/24 than originally planned and @chunkymonkey and @LindseyJo22 and I are trying to organize a minor cocktail party for that night. Do you think you'll be able to join us that night for a drinky pooh?

    How's the 5k training going?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    Ugh, adulting happened at my house tonight - shingles for the house has eaten up all the rest of the travel budget until possibly 2019. But it's a sacrifice we have to make and it's not something we can cheap out on. Sigh, good thing my passes have no expiry date! Plus I'll keep trying for the lottery plan!

    I hope so, as I've done practically NO planning for it! (Well, I have, just not my usual level of super-planning!)

    Pretty much the worst. I should just officially declare myself on a DIS hiatus at this point.

    I'm so far behind on everything, girl. I've lost my fire for the Dis, and I don't know why!

    I love it! Do I still get it when I get swept because I haven't gone for a walk much less trained in months?

    You're telling me! 19 days to go and I haven't done hardly anything!

    Nope. :( For some of the bigger races, they will let you defer your entry fee until the following year. But for the 5K, you're just out the money.

    Ya'll ALL know how to find me on Facebook! Hit me up or start a group chat or something! I should be down, depending on the time. I'm not free that night until after Illuminations. I still have our breakfast res held at the Wave on 2/25, too!

    Aww! We can wave to each other in passing (almost) this time!

    I'm missing me too. All is FINE, just haven't been into DISing for some reason. I don't know why!

    Everything is fine, I promise! Just busy-ish!

    Awww, now I feel bad for poofing. But thank you for the compliment!

    I hear that! Fortunately good things have happened lately as a result of my adulting, and it looks like I might be squeezing the September trip back in this year maybe. We'll see!
