Disney redeemed themselves

Yup...they did after yesterday. Although, it had nothing to do with yesterday.

So I'm sitting in my office checking email, etc. The phone rings. Caller ID say 407-something something.... I knew right away it was Disney. Well, the restaraunt that Dan and I were going to have a lovely just the two of us (and Jackson) dinner at is being renovated so they had to move our reservations to some place else in Disney. I was a little bummed, but not a ton as it was our chance to eat in Canada since we had to cut out that reservation earlier in the month. Luckily they had an opening for us on that Saturday's one of the hardest places in Epcot to get reservations. So I'm pretty thrilled #1 that they called and #2 we got to eat where we wanted.

But wait, there's more! The girl goes on and says that since we were inconveienced they have a little something for us. She said we're giving you VIP passes for the Illuminations that night. Not completly showing it in my voice, I'm totally excited! I was informed that there would be a cast member waiting for us around 840 to walk us to our area of seating for the 930 show!

Now not only do we have VIP passes, but for us it's a big deal as last year we missed it because we fell asleep after dinner so it was the one show that Dan and I wanted to see! YAY!

I think I'm going to scream

if I hear one more time, "let me transfer you".

Normally I have no problems when calling Disney. Not the case today. I call to pay the balance on our vacation in October. I go through the automated selections. Finally I get a real person. They say oh you're with a grand gathering let me transfer you. So I get transfered. That person says oh you're making a payment, let me transfer you. It takes me back to the automated selections. I get a 3rd live person and she says, well didn't you call this number? It's the grand gathering number. I said no, they were transfering me there and I got the automated selection. She informs me that if I call the number I'll go straight to a person skipping the stupid menu.

I call.

The automated menu is there. Finally I get a real person that is actually willing to take my money!

UGH!! Maybe it's worse today since we're all sick. I don't know, but I've never had worse service from Disney.

I could..... I can.

I've had lots to say lately, but no way to say it.

I could talk about how much Jackson has grown or that he is sitting up on his own now or that he talks so much he's a carbon copy of his momma. That just doesn't sit right with me at the present time. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my son and I'm amazed at what he does at his young age. It's just not the right thing for me to discuss.

I could go on about how we are ready for Jackson to be a big brother. I'm already fielding the "you're crazy lady" comments, but whatever.

I could go totally opposite and talk about how it still hurts so bad to know that my mom lives in FLA now. Yeah, I'll get to see her for 2 days at the end of our vacation, but that's it.

I could go even further from that and say how blessed Dan and I are. He isn't thrilled with his job right now. He's talked about changing to Toyota, but is the grass really greener?

I could talk about help; how it's such a difficult thing for me to ask for. I could say that I was told in recent weeks it's probably the #2 (if not #1) reason I'm not married to someone else right now.

None of those is really what is and has been on my heart lately.

What is on my heart is completely different from that. What is on my heart is not meant for one person in particular, but a myriad.

So here it goes.

I'm different. I'm not the same person you knew, dated, or loved. I'm not the same person you lived with, said was your "BFF" and now choose to ignore, or fought with.

I'm a completely different person than I was a year ago, 3 years ago, 5 years ago. Life does that to us. Experience, good and bad, does that too us. Sometimes when the natural ebb and flow of life doesn't allow paths to cross, you have to find a way for them cross.

Becoming a wife teaches you a lot. Becoming a mommy teaches you a lot, but doing them both within a year teaches you even more. I think some people would be pleasantly surprised with changes I've made. Not that I was a bad person or anything before, but I've still changed and bettered myself. I think there are others that would be or are proud of my life changes. I'm sure there are others still that could care less....and I'm okay with that.

In the midst of my thoughts the past couple weeks, I've decided I need to make some personal apologies. I'd like to make them in person, but some just aren't able to be. That's not something I will post publicly other than possibly to say that it was done. One of those will hopefully happen this weekend. We shall see.

My heart and head feel better.

I can go on talking about my son and the mundane things in life.

I can prepare myself mentally, physcially, spiritually and emotionally to become a mommy again.

I can be excited for vacation in October and going to see my mom.

I can be supportive of my husband and the choices he makes as head of the household.

I can ask for help when I need it.

I did it...

I asked for help.

Tuesday, August 07, 2007


So while I was talking to my brother this morning, he mentioned something about Joanne Glasser possibly leaving EKU (it's nice to have close people in the know). Well, on the news tonight it was said that she has resigned. Man, I can't believe it. I hope they find someone that can fill her shoes. As long as they don't put Harry Moberly in there, this too shall pass.

Early Riser.

yup, that's my son all right.
This morning it was 530. So he's playing.
Friday morning, he thought 430 was a great time to wake up and play...
Dad and I on the other hand, not so much.

I know what you are saying....keep him up later.
Trust me, I wish I could.
But even keeping him up until 715 makes him unbearable for that extra part.

Oh well, extra time with the 2nd love of my life isn't really that bad; especially since I'm working more now.

Speaking of working more....
We're going on target for our car this month!!!
I'm not completly sure on even who reads this anymore, but if you think you might like to try what I do or know someone who would enjoy it, has more month than money, or just wants some girlfriend time....please let me know!!

Baby Fever

I've got it BAD. People think I'm crazy and I'm okay with that... I've always been a little crazy.
I know Jackson is only 5 months old (well, almost), but still. I'm SOOOOO ready for another one.
We said we'd start trying in October on vacation, but I don't know if I can wait that long. It's not like we have a problem getting pregnant or anything.
I know it'll be crazy in the beginning, but it'll be totally worth it. Plus, when I'm done with diapers, I'm done. I'm not going to have them spaced 3, 4, 5 years apart. It's not for me (or Dan for that matter).
Besides, after this little medical episode, I'm not allowed to go back on the pill ever again. Considering that's the form of B.C. we like, and typically works for me looks like we'll have to try to good ole calendar method. (maybe there is a little catholicism in our blood from way back in our families)

Otherwise, things are on the up and up...somewhat. We're trying to sell the LaBaron's time. We don't REALLY need it. It's a '90. Asking price at the moment is $1000. We'll work with that.
Bills, well, they suck. That's part of growing up and getting older though.

My marriage rocks though!
My husband is awesome.
Supportive of my dreams and goals.

What more could a girl ask for?!
