I know I having been posting much lately. I have been a busy woman: between traveling (Cumberland Falls for New Year’s and Gatlinburg or my Birthday), family functions, work, kids, and planning my next Disney Trip. But I am going to start making time for me and my blog again. So first lets play catch up.
As I mentioned briefly we spent New Year’s in Cumberland Falls and mine and my mom’s birthday in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. I really missed the mountains and it was really good to get back to them. I hope we can get there a little more this year than we did last year. I love that mountain air. My next Disney Trip is just around the corner so I am looking forward to that right now.
I started a new series while I was in the mountains; Smoky Mountains Matches by Karen Kirst. I have only read the first book but I really enjoyed it. I still need to finish the Dare Island Series and now get into this series more. But first I am going to reread Gone With the Wind. My journey begins Wednesday.
The kids and their mommy went to Cumberland Falls with us but not Gatlinburg. I love spending time with them but one weekend in a months time is okay, I really can not handle two weeks in one month. I pretty much pick the two younger ones up at day care every Tuesday, so we are getting some quality Auntie Time in.
Thanks to my Time Hop I was reminded that two years ago today I was at Disney World. Which just increaded my h°o°me sickness. That trip was hotter then heck (they were breaking records from the 20’s) but it was fun to see the trasition from Halloween/Fall to Christmas. I would love to go back again in November or Early December, but then again I’m game for a Disney Trip almost anytime.
I have been on a role as of late. I caught up on the Morgan’s Run Series and started a new series, Dare Island. I am two books in on that and can’t wait to read the other three and a half. But I am taking a little detour right now so I can read the next book becoming a Passionflix movie.
The kids keep us hoping that’s for sure. But I love them to pieces. The two year old is really becoming her own person. And a bag lady just like her auntie. The three year old will be four soon and he is becoming a little man. I truly think I am one of his favorite people and that melts my heart. These two little ones are my Disney Nerds. They love watching Disney Sing Along Songs in the car and watching YouTube videos of Disney World rides at home. The eight year old well she is eight going on eighteen (so she things). Boy does she have mood swings. She hates everybody and she’s not afraid to tell you either.
No Book Purchases September/October
Well that was a complete bust. I did pretty good in September but feel off the wagon in October. Hopefully November and December will be better.
Now that my much anticipated Outer Banks trip is over I am starting to have Disney withdraws. Hopefully a February/March trip is in the plans.
Life in General
My best friend from college moved further down in Kentucky this summer so now my two closest girlfriends (that are the same age) do not live close to me. I think I need to make some much overdue changes to my life. I will work on them. Still waiting for Mr Right to sweep me off my feet.
My Outer Banks vacation is a month and a half away. Is it too early to start packing my bags? Because I am seriously thinking about it. I need a relaxing vacation so bad. My Disney vacation was great don’t get me wrong, and I lost touch of reality while I was there, but all that walking and timing is not really relaxing. Part of it’s me, I try to jam too much in, but I just love it there so much. I can’t wait to crowl up on a couch, bed, or chair and lose myself in a book or two.
As I was driving home this afternoon listing to music on my iPod, singing along with all the Disney songs, it dawned on me the people driving next to me have to think I’m crazy. I can really get into my Disney songs. Singing at the top of my lungs and doing hand gesters when stopped at a light. Thirty-three years old and still a child at heart.
Apparently yesterday marked the one year anniversary of my much planned Disney Trip getting canceled at the last minute. I still have wounds from this one. But they are healing slowly. When you are a planner like I am it is hard to move on when your hard work is destroyed in an instant like that. Maybe some day I can plan the perfect Disney World Vacation, again, for my babies. But I’ll never get back not being with them for their first visit, that will leave scars.
I read some where yestereday that some think Port Orleans French Quarter is a nice Disney Resort for an adults only trip. I have wondered about POFQ but I’m kinda afraid to try it. I love Riverside so much that I hate not staying there but maybe the French Quarter would be worth a try. Has any of my Disney readers stayed at the French Quarter before? Any thoughts or ideas? If we are going to do this next year we are going to have to start planning soon.
